Alexis shares what she thought was most hilarious in this episode and discusses Slade's act.

on Feb 28, 20120

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,
Alexis

Alexis I just want to say to one Christian to another I am very dissapointed on how you reacted to "getting your nose job" or getting your deviated septum fixed. Please if you are going to profess to be a Christian on national TV please don't sit there and cry on camera about getting your nose fixed. I have had 2 major surgeries (spinal) within the past few years and know that my Lord is sitting on the throne and when it is my time it is my time. I ask please that you would live your faith out if you profess to be a practicing Christian. You may say this is your mission field I would agree but please don't make us Christians look bad because you drink and have gotten drunk and as Tamara said it well on tonights episode you let you boobs hang out and are NOt modest at all. Trust me all eyes on you when you profess to be a Christian. I would rather you not say anything about your faith and so let your light shine because you are representing all of us in the Christian Faith. 1 Timothy 2:9 - "And I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes." (NLT) 1 Peter 3:3-4 - "Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." (NIV)

Everytime I watch this show I feel like I am In high school again. You are so jealous of other people and you are so fake. I thought we were done with seeing your husband but he has popped up again. He makes my skin crawl.

You are so over the top ridiculous and I'll tell you why. Your scene with the plastic surgeon for your nose job. You were crying and crying and crying. About the pain, about going under, how long recovery was, etc. BUT didn't you get a boob job - how many???? Don't you have to be put under for that? Is there not pain involved in that? You are nothing but a drama queen.

If you thought Slade's act was mean - why on earth were you laughing? And I don't buy it for a minute that you didn't know what the other comedian was talking about. Puulllleasssee Alexis. You really are putting us natural blondes to shame.

What you do for Fox is nothing compared to Katie Couric - her name should never come out of your mouth. And a news anchor? Really? Thanks for that, I was laughing hard for 10 minutes.

I cannot wait to see Heather, who you clearly are intimidated by, eat you alive.

Just to let you know, I do agree that Peggy should have told you about Jim. Even if he said not to. Thats wrong, but breaking your friendship with her over that is not right. Lets be honest, that is why you stopped being her friend. Why did JIM get off so easy with it all??

Hi Alexis Let me tell u that I checked out your clothing line and I think its amazing. I love the clothes.. They are beautiful and affordable. I really want to order some of the dresses but debate about what size I might be. I like you because you make time for your family. A lot of womens these days care more about themselves and forget that they have a husband and kids to interact and care for. You are hands on with the help of babysitters LoL ! Jim seems like a good husband and I do not think he is that controlling. I feel you both are in each others bussiness 24/7 and people are not used to see couples like that. I do feel that you are shallow and materialistic even though u tried to hard to seem spiritual. You do seem to lack of confidence because you say something and then change the story. Do not try to be too nice to gain respect from others. Be yourself no matter what. If people like you from who you are fine if not is their problems. I do think that you should try to work more on how you speak. Do not feel the need to make a comment unless you are sure of what the topic is or you know what your talking about. People perceive you as a dumb christian barbie and I really think that term is derrogatory. Is none ones bussiness to criticize your religion or faith!!! Keep working on your clothing line I think you have the potential, but educate your self. Being a fashion designer is not about drawing! its about creating.. you need to learn about fabrics, cost, materials and how to make the clothes.

I totally agree with NebraskaJenn. Some of these people are so low-class to sit and criticize someone else they don't even know. I live in San Diego and I watch Fox5 News every morning. I've seen you on a few Friday a.m. segments and I think you are great. You are very poised and professional in front of the camera and I have enjoyed watching you. I think you are absolutely gorgeous and the other women seem to be very jealous (especially Tamra, who is jealous of EVERYONE). These people who sit around and make judgements about you being a Christian are just plain stupid. So what if you went to a comedy club and laughed at Slade? For all we know maybe you were laughing at the guy making a fool of himself. That comment you made about Heather and Cirque de Soleil was so funny, I agree completely. She seems very full of herself AND extremely materialistic for one who has proclaimed that she is a Buddhist and honestly I have NEVER seen nor heard of this woman before either. To see her complaining about how her home is "too small" is beyond ridiculous. And I personally don't think it's all that beautiful either. It resembles a Days Inn, to me. All that is missing is a front desk in the foyer, for the guests to check in. I really like watching you, you are my absolute favorite of ALL of the housewives on any of the shows.

thanks for this blog. hearing about a little family time is awesome. I heard that Safari Animal park is great and you can see herds of Giraffes running up the hill. Living in OC, its a shame that I don't take the time to see what all we have to offer in So Cal. I think I work to much! I love your husbands blog! I certainly hope you have a better season this go around. You are likeable and I don't understand why people bash you so much. I think the trouble starter is Tamara and you just constantly have to watch your back. Good luck :)

Alexis, So far this season I dislike you more & more after each episode. Each season your jealousy & insercurities with yourself, your marriage & each of the ladies is getting quite ridiculous. Pleae, girl get over yourself already geez!

I just wisht that you would take a stance and stay there. You always back track. I think people accept the catty things the other wives say becuase they own it. You always rewind and try and lie and fix it. Like everyone heard you say after the show "they deserve it" to slade. Now in your Blog you say its not nice. Like come on! You just said something completly differant on camera so why do you even bother just own it!

Alexis, During your conversation with Heather, you seemed very nervous. It seems to me that you are very much intimidated by Heather and trying too hard to make yourself look good.

You thought Slade's act was hurtful? Well I do agree with that even though Vicki and Tamra aren't exactly innocent in this either. I certainly wasn't entertained by the act (don't quit your day job Slade). But didn't I see you laughing at his act? Didn't you go back to congratulate them on the show afterwards?

So now I'm confused. You laugh at Slade's mean jokes but you don't get the other comedians jokes...then on the blog you talk about how wrong Slade's act was? And you weren't just laughing at the other jokes he made. You were laughing at the insult jokes. Let's be honest here.

Alexis, I HAVE to know where you got that brown strapless jumper you are wearing in the start of the show (starring.... with music) -- you are in the kitchen kissing one of your kids. I HAVE TO HAVE ONE! Are they long? It is Juicy Couture? You are gorgeous with an amazing body!

You don't think it's funny now to make fun of other people, but you sure were laughing the night of the comedy show. Hmmmm.

Alexis, AGAIN, you contradict yourself (constantly) by laughing at the expense of others.

Heather threatens you-hands down! She's far too intelligent (she knows what an anchor person is) and you won't ever admit the jealousy, but you don't have to-you're just so transparent!

I am in my 50's...happy with keeping in shape and of course have some wrinkles/flaws...don't we all? But, I can tell you 1 thing, I'd rather have to really work @ it like I do and have the education behind me (thank God) than appear as uneducated and ridiculously clueless as you do in each episode. It astounds me!!! You do know you can be beautiful on the outside but that doesn't matter if everything that comes out of your mouth sounds so immature, uninformed and unintelligent....

First of all, I must say I can't believe some of the hatefull words that people actually think are appropriate to say to someone. I do not care if they have opened their lives up to viewers, you still do not talk nor treat people that way. It is okay to have an opinion, but most people were taught if you can't say something nice, don't say it all. I don't mind people disagreeing with any of these women, but a majority of the items that people are complaining about are very catty. I just consider the source though. Viewer27 from Miami or whatever is probably 100 lbs overweight (not that there is anything wrong with that because trust me, I struggle with weight myself) but anyway, unhappy with their own marriage, their teenage daughter just came home with an F in English and cigarette smoke on her breath, etc. I think you get the idea. I am pretty sure that the hateful comments stem from jealousy. Alexis is beautiful, has a beautiful home, and a family that is based on faith. Yes, Jim decided not to tell Alexis about a past gf. There is a part in all of us that is very unhealthy when it comes to wanting to know about your significant other's past and not wanting to know. Just because Jim didn't tell her doesn't mean he was trying to be dishonest. He is a man, he knows how great that would work out.....Alexis would then have to deal with picturing her husband with her friend etc. It is like that question, "have you slept with them?" Well you wanted to know out of curiousty but when you got the answer that yes, your husband slept with Betty Lou on prom night and now you are disappointed, did you really want to know and is it worth it? I think everyone just needs to chill out, stop being so mean to Alexis about the news anchor etc. If you had cameras following you around all day how many mistakes in your speech or how many times would you need to go back and exlpain yourself? Its truly ridiculous how you get on her for such things. One more thing, Peggy, YOU are guilty of many things as well. By actually saying that Alexis is competing with her daughter? HELLO???? If I suffered from something that my friend's daughter also suffered from why wouldn't I talk to them about it? WE ALL DO THAT STUFF AND IT IS RIDICULOUS TO SEE PEOPLE CALL HER OUT ON IT????? Wow. Get a life!

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.

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!!

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.

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

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..

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.

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 ;)

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 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, 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!

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.. 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..

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.

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.

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! ;)

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.

My Oh My
My Oh My

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.

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, 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.

Marcia Ribera

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.

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.
