I cannot image the fear and stress Vicki felt at that dinner with Briana, discussing what issues Briana was having. You could see the sadness in Vicki's eyes, but Vicki kept her composure in front of her daughter, because that's what parents do. She didn't let her emotions go in front of Briana, although I know she has let herself feel all of these emotions in private. Briana has had a rough couple of years, and it doesn't seem fair that someone as young as her has been given the struggles she has. Yet, somehow, Briana keeps her spirits up with all that she has been dealt. I have always thought Briana is an amazing, kind, strong, lovely person, and it is proven by her every year.
Thank you to all of you that take the time to read my blog every week. I have been so blessed to have amazing fans who are supportive of not just me, but also of Jim, and our family. Your support means the world to me!
Until next week,
I thought Vickie's kitchen act was very funny also and I'm glad to hear it made you laugh too. You are one of my all time fav housewives....even though I don't know why??
Alexis, I really haven't enjoyed you on the show but this season I am enjoying you more. I could actually see you and Vicki becoming good friends. Her personality is a bit abrasive but she truly is a good person in her heart and I hope you find that. Tamara is the snake of your group with her fake tears and her constant double talking, I am hoping that you ladies will finally pick up on this but I doubt it. I saw her on WWHL and she had so many nasty things to say about you and how she thought you were jealous of Heather. I think you and Heather have so much in common that you could become great friends. I have a couple of friends who are younger than me and their children call me Grandma but they help to keep me young and they ask for advice, though they also have taught me a lot of how things are done now. I could see you and Heather sharing the same type of relationship with Vicki and I hope this continues to develope.
I know Gretchen is your friend but it seems she has been desperate to have Tamara be her friend since she first started the show and for the life of me I can not see why. I hope that you continue to ignore Tamara and her petty high school ways and build relationships with the other ladies. I am loving your humility this year, if you are good at something it is seen, to constantly speak of how wonderful you are gets to be a bit tedious.
I am happy to see you trying to take a positive approach to everyone in your blog. Heather does not deserve yur gracious comments. She was rude and condescending to you and I was hoping you wou,d stand up for yourself and tell her to get bent. Personally, I never knew who she was before this and if she was that well known as an actress, she would not be repeating it over and over again. Personally I would have preferred Fernanda. She would have brought some fun and a new element to the show. Heather is plain boring to watch, uppity, self-centered and according tomy husband, not at all attractive. Boring and plain. I hope we get to see you and the other girls shut her down.
You are intimidated by Heather and jealous. You can't compete with her cause you aren't on her level get over it and get over yourself. You appear very uneducated,get informed before you speak
It wasn't very Christian of you to sit at the improv club and laugh at the jokes made at Vicki,Tamra and Jo's expense. Just saying.
Alexis..I love watching you on the show. You're so BEAUTIFUL; however, I do think you let your husband control you too much !! I can not imagine living a life where my husband had absolute authority and the final say on EVERYTHING. A marriage is supposed to be a loving relationship where both partners discuss the situation, take each other's opinions into consideration, and then mutually agree on a resolution.
I do love your soft side and sensitivty to other cast member's feelings; however, you are "ditzy, air-headed, or dumb blonde" (or whatever you want to call it) but it mostly makes you look sweeter and funnier.
You SUCK at reporting the news but hopefully you'll get better with more practice. Everyone has to start somewhere and you wasn't afraid to give it a shot so KUDOS to you !!!
Luv ya girl..blessings and hugs :)
I'm not sure your speaking of yourself being so compassionate of how Heather interpeted your "bedrm" gesture or joke. Your laughing about Vikki,Tamara and now your saying it's not nice to talk about someone when their not present to defend themselves. Are you serious A are you FREAKING serious when Peggy wanted to speak with her you ran home,you've talked about Vikki when she and Don left a dinner party by a former housewive house. Going back to Peggy you spoke ill about her to Grethen so really honey your a back stabber. It appears from the tonights eposiode your struggling with understanding Heather's language. Heather isn't coming off as "Better Than" she's just BLUNT, Fabulous,witty,Natural Beautiful & RICH.
alexis i hope they print this.you are my fav. real housewive.i have tryed watching all.now just watch oc.vicki was funny talking about you.i luv alexis.but do not cut your self short.you were so funny in the last to shows.this one with the chicken.and plugging your ears nanana.we luv the bellinos.i hate when on wwhl some people say such mean things.you are so confident and i think you and vicki and heather do not have the valger mouths.we are christians to.i did not care for the jokes on the show from the other guy.i am with you.will continue to soport you.i watch because of you.your daughters are cute.but james is going to be quit the young man.he is so handsom.we have to sons and boys are so fun!god bless i say a pray for the bellinos.hope all your dreams come true.continue to stay strong and never listin to nay-sayers.you guys have alot of fans out here like us.next week see ya.
I too am liking you better this season. I hope you continue on that path. You seem to be grounded in your faith. Id like to see you set that example on this show even more :)
in the show you thought slades act was hilarious but now you agree it was harmful? make up your mind!
I am liking you more this season. You seem grounded in your faith. I would like to see you set that as more of an example.
you're growing on me. I think you're the only genuine woman on this show. Don't be too friendly with either Vicki or this new pretentious Heather. They are who they are, and will never change, so if they screw you over, they are just being true to themselves. Both are older and a lot less attractive than you, so they will always be jelous. Heather is not a nice person, so heed my words.
Alexis I kind of like you but you need to get off your high-horse. I don't understand why you and your husband would got to a Comedy Improv Show. Do you two have any common sense. You two set there i shock about some of the things the comedian was joking about (especially the sex stuff). And how could you guys sit there and laugh when Slade made fun of people that you socialize with....Oh, I forgot you are Christians and that didn't bother you. Sorry, but you didn't laugh the whole time. You even liked how he made fun of Vickie and Tamara..... and you're Christians?????
Shame on you and your husband laughing at Slade showing collassal disrespect for women. Christians? I don't think so. You proved it by being so two faced on your blog. Funny at the club, but a complete 180 later? Looks like damage control to me.
I get you. You are nice, kind, smart and beautiful. I hope Heather really get to appreciate you for who you are. DON'T LISTEN TO THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS.
Hello Alix, please donot give Peggy the time of day, she is not only crazy but boreing, and she is so in love with Jim it is sad. that is what her proublem is, I cannot beleive what he ever saw in her she is nothing to take home to mama.love u stay strong, and stay away from 2-face Tamra.
I like you so much better this season! You seem more real and sure of yourself. And I miss Jim not being on the show as I like the two of you. He has a great sense of humor and is funny to watch. I am glad you and Vicki are connecting--seems more like a real friendship than any of the others, except maybe you and Gretchen. Love your new house!
Glad Jim made an appearance last night. You seemed to have fun together without the drama from the other ladies. Wish we had gotten to know Jim better. Glad you went out to support Gretchen, but Slade's comedy routine was WAY out of line. What did Jo have to do with anything? She's been off the show for 4 or 5 seasons now. It was so rude I had to change the channel until it was over. SO disrespectful to women.
Alexis is a doll, but last nite's show was the worst I've ever seen. It's fine to do a Joan Rivers or Kathy Griffin, but Slad's act asn't even funny, just laughable. I love Gretchen, and do want her and Tamra to be close. Vicki is disgusting with that new guy, and shd be ashamed.
Alexis, Notice that Jim is baaack. Thought he could not STAND the housewives? Laughing at your fellow housewives is not cool. It could have been you Slade was dicing up and maybe next time it will be. The shock on Heather's face told it all....and yet you and Jim continued to yuck it up. Both acts stunk but Slade's was vicious and malicious. He really is a small, small, petty man.
Oh Alexis, It didn't seem like you were kidding one bit when you put Heather in her place at the painting party. In fact, you seem incredible intimidated by her poise, arrogance, and the way she positioned herself. When you first came on the show, you initially seemed to attempt to be the kind one, the appropriate one, etc. Didn't last. You and Jim and all your warts have slowly been exposed. Don't fret, the same will happen to Heather and her dr. husband.
Alexis, I really do feel you have good intentions, just an odd delivery at times. I would like to address just one thing - the news 'anchor' thing. You are a reporter, not an anchor. And I would like to say that is NOT a bad thing, at all!! Be proud of the fact that you are doing a segment and reporting. By trying to say you are an anchor, you are giving the impression, whether intended or not, that it is a lesser profession when its not. Own what you do! And remember, many anchors began as segment reporters, hopefully you'll be so lucky! Be happy with what you have/are.
Okay Alexis, I have been very critical of you lately with your talk of "two-faced" people not walking the talk. You, seem to do the exact same thing. You don't like Tamra, it's so completely clear. You don't seem to like Gretchen being friends with Tamra and now that Vicki and Tamra seem to be on their way out, you like Vicki. Vicki is no different this year than she was in the past. She's always been bubbly, funny and silly, you just never focused on the positive. But you seem to like her this year. I can't help but think that you only like her because she's a bit more critical of Tamra. That's your only reason for liking her. That's how you're putting it out there anyway. You're just being very transparent. If you want to make the audience think you're the sweet little woman of the house, just be yourself! Don't try to be something you're not. You are not financially on the level that Heather is on. That does NOT make you any less a person. So don't try to be like her. Just be who you are. You were my favorite until last year, and then this year, you're just a little annoying to watch. Like you have to build everything up to make it appear better than it is. Bottom line is you have a family that you adore, you are great in your own skin. If you're not, change what you don't like. Don't act like you're satisfied with something that you're not satisfied with just to make "things appear better". On a better note, you talk, talk, talk about how wonderful your husband is and how happy you are with him, but we never see that, so it was great to see you and Jim out at the comedy show having a nice time. I like seeing you with him being happy. Lastly, Alexis, don't judge people. You have done that A LOT in the past.
I think you're sweet & endearing, Alexis! I think you get nervous when speaking to people sometimes (like @ lunch with Heather and when you get together with all of the ladies), but I can see how at ease you are when you're with someone you trust, like Gretchen. Your nervousness makes you fumble words sometimes but it certainly does not mean you're not an intelligent person. Heather looked like an ass making that comment about you and it just goes to show that she must have some insecurity when it comes to you. Keep being you and don't worry what the haters think.....remember, the haters are fans of Heather, Vicki & Tamra.... Enough said! ;)
Was laughing at someone who made fun of a woman's looks Christian? You should be ashamed of yourself. Slade was mean spirited and immature. You had a chance to stand up for your values, but took the easy way out.
Having a 5 minute workout tip section is a far cry for anchorperson. You should be embarrassed, you really should. Let's also just not mention the fact that in your blog you say it was hurtful to make fun of them, but on tv., in your own words you say they deserved it. This is why people don't believe you are what you say you are, and are proving yourself to be the biggest hypocrite, desperate wan-na-be of all the housewives.
Alexis.. why do you lie? You told Heather you were trying to difuse the sex talk at her party...no you weren't. You said you were a news anchor..no you're not, isn't it only tempory anyway? (booty awareness MONTH) You told Heather Jim doesn't make the household decisions...yes he does you have even said yourself he is the man and his word is the final say!! remember if you always tell the truth, you never have to remember your lies..
I'm liking you more & more each episode!! I feel bad that Gretchen has left you in the dust but I'm glad you & Vicki have become buds, that's so nice to see!! I wish you all the luck in the world but you need to stay away from Gretchen - she's EVIL!!!
Alexis, I am sure it is difficult to expose so much about your life on television, but it is what you signed up for. Entertaining at times to watch, but also disturbing. Treat this experience as a life lesson and learn more about who you truly are. Once you accept yourself, you will find some much needed peace within. Your actions speak volumes and you are only fooling yourself. I wish you the best of luck and hope that you can one day be as happy as you desire to be!
Alexis: I find it funny when you said you don't get the "type" of jokes the others were telling. However you will discuss sexual situations at a paint party with the other women. Anyway, this year you seem more independent when you are with the other women. You don't have "Jim" conversations and have began to show who you really are which is a good start. The only thing that I wish you wouldn't have said is the other women may deserve the treatment from Slade during his "comedy?" stint. Nobody deserves to be bashed and by commenting or replying is doing nothing but opening the door for another round of jabs. Because you have been very determined in making the best of every situation and encouraging the other women to forgo their differences and enjoy each other, I wish you would have scolded him a little more to encourage better behavior. I know he isn't your husband but, you are probably the most feeling aware on the show and it would have been nice to see that continue through you.
alexis, do you know what a tv anchor is? you are not a tv anchor and lack the intelligence to ever be anything more than a desperate housewife.
I thought you were doing a stand up routine for booty boot camp! Bless your little heart, you just cant help it. And, your husband is a control freak and creepy!
Youre cute Alexis. Talking how freezing cold it is in San Diego. Lol. Didnt you come from the mid-west? As Californians really do take our warmer weather for granted.
I have never thought this show was a good fit for you. Maybe it is time for you to move on. You are way to insecure to be in front of the camera!
ARe you all kidding me it was a comedy act...we go we laugh, does not mean we agree with all the comedians say.. alexis I really think you are a great friend to gretchen, I just read her blog, and she kind of threw you under the bus saying that you said they deserved it:/ I think your a great mommy and wife dont listen to all these freaking haters:)
Love you alexis! Your comment about making a mean meatloaf, etc!! So funny! Women should be motivated by you to be the woman that does it all!!!
love you alexis! i'm always so proud of how you handle yourself with those women! you could teach them ALL a lesson or two on how to behave, on grace, humility, and manners! well done young lady!
alexis!!! you are my fav!!!! your down to earth, humble!!!! and a great mommy!!!! YOU ARE THE WHOLE PACKAGE!!!! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! =)
Ok Alexis, time for your lesson of the day. Anchorperson- the person who sits behind the desk during the news you see the most. (No, not the 2 minute booty skit you get to do.) The one who who does all the talking and carries the show. It is usually a male and female team, but sometimes like the world news it's just Diane Sawyer, you know that really successful journalist, who does it alone because she's just that important.
What you did is what's called a segment, which is just small part of the show. The anchorperson is there for the entire show and closes the show.
Alexis, I have watched every episode of the OC housewives and I like you the best at this point. Also, I think you are too hard on yourself inside and outside, like you over-think yourself a bit too much, for example you say a harmless joke and so what... you don't need to explain yourself to nobody. No one is perfect :) And you take pride in your looks..great but you are a beautiful woman (the prettiest on this cast). It is good that you and Jim seem really tight and keep it that way...and let the girls get jealous ;)
Oh my gosh Alexia, laughing at Slade but not getting the other jokes?? Poor you... you don't have a clue. Y'all are the only two that were laughing, mabey three or four were too, didn't really notice that much. Slade is slimy, I can't believe what he did.
I think you are so fake you don't really notic, you need to go back and watch yourself then you might know what I mean.
Slade's 'comedy' act seemed to be more of a personal attack on Tamra and Vicki than any real comedy and I didn't think it was funny at all. He needs to get a real job. His Mom was funnier on this episode than he was..
Girl, I can't figure out if you are delusional or just a few ears short of a dozen, but you need to take a good look BEHIND that face you've made up with the help of doctors and dollar bills, and climb out of that shallow puddle you call your life. Peggy was your friend, but you seemed to be in constant competition with her about everything from cars to whose child was more advanced - did you ever really look at yourself and LISTEN ??? No wonder you blame her for not telling you that she had been with Jim in the past - you sure can't expect that controll freak husband to take a little responsibility, can you? That might make your perfect marriage seem more like the house it cards it more than likely is. You blame her for not telling you, when it was HIS
Alexis, you are quickly becoming my least favorite housewife on the show. So often, you do one thing but say another. You really need to find another way to show off besides this TV show. Your dad would be very disappointed in the person you have become.
I think Slades routine was out of line and you as a frined to Gretchen, shouldn't be encouraeing bad behavior. Also you seem to be a bit of an airhead...
You and Jim are so wonderful to watch together! I admire your companionship and love! Jim is a very lucky guy, and you are a lucky girl too! I have a TOTAL crush on JIM BELLINO!!! I think JIM is the hottest husband of all of the shows!! Mario Singer is a close-enough second i guess. Alexis you really are the sweetest girl on TV and I am SO GLAD that you and Jim come to my living room once a week!!
First of all chitchat, where do you get off discussing someone's late father? Shame on you. I'm surprised the reviewers let that one slip through.
That being said, it's nice to see you and Vicki finding common ground. I am a polar opposite of a very close friend of mine, but we agree on the things that matter most.
