Funny Business

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

This is a week full of fun for the Bellinos! My kids are out school this week for "Winter Break" so we brought the kids to La Costa Resort in San DIego. Yesterday it poured rain, so we couldn't do the water slides like we were suppose to, so we had movies, pjs and room service! Today was cold, but we did the African Safari at the Wild Animal Park, which was incredible! Tomorrow will be water slides, and Thursday is Legoland! Heading in to the jacuzzi right now because we were so cold during the Safari that now we need to be de-frosted!

Watching Vicki in the beginning scene while cooking in the kitchen was so hilarious! She just cracks me up! I couldn't stop laughing at Vicki. The more I get to know her, the more I think she is so fabulous. There is never a dull moment around her and I enjoy her so much!

I was glad Heather accepted my invitation to lunch. I wanted to get to know her better (away from the other girls), and I had a great time. I felt it was important that she knew that I was teasing the night at her painting party, and since she didn't know me very well, maybe it needed to be said. Although after watching that episode I feel I came across sarcastic. I honestly was just joking by calling her out when I said "we don't talk about those things," and I wanted her to know that.

Slade's mom should get her own comedy act! She is just the funniest person ever. Her reaction to Slade proposing to Gretchen was classic. She makes me laugh every time she is on the show. I think she needs to be incorporated more frequently!

Slade's comedy act was definitely hurtful to Vicki and Tamra, and I don't think it's funny to make fun of other people, especially as part of an act where they aren't able to defend themselves. However, some parts of his act were funny. I have to give both he and Gretchen props for getting up on that stage, because whether the show was good or bad, comedy has to be one of the most difficult things to attempt, and I wouldn't have the nerve to do it.

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

Lizzie: Tamra Doesn't Fight Fair

Lizzie thinks Tamra's comments about her children were meant to deflect from her own problems.

Happy Labor Day!!! I am going to make this blog short and sweet. It’s a holiday and I am going to be spending the day with family in Newport wearing a Sun Kitten and a smile. I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend.

To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you. We filmed the reunion for over 10 hours and after listening to so much ugliness my heart just couldn't take it anymore.

I do not regret telling Shannon all the things that Tamra said about her. Everything I shared with Shannon was something that happened and was said on camera. I didn't take anything and create unnecessary drama. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would think my friends would do the same for me. I simply did not know the truth about Tamra. Danielle told me all the things Tamra said about me. That is why after my birthday I was so hurt by her. It's hard for viewers to understand because these things weren't in the show. She could have called me and said she wasn't coming. I called her after sitting on the bus for over an hour. The next day she made fun of me to Danielle, in addition to asking plenty of questions looking for negative details regarding my party.

On that one-year free membership to Cut Fitness: Let's delve into this shall we? I was the one that contacted Tamra days after my party. She did not contact me to give me present. I had invited Tamra, Eddie, Danielle, Joe, Heather, and Terry to the Kentucky Derby and Tamra was the only person that had not sent in the RSVP. It was past the deadline and it was getting borderline rude at this point. Tamra, in fact, was making fun of the Kentucky Derby and the charity event that would be hosting us to Danielle. So, I reached out to Tamra regarding the Kentucky Derby and she texted me back saying, "I want to give you a free membership to CUT for your birthday." Tamra knows I am already a member to a sports club and that was the last I heard of this "free membership." I never received any kind of certificate or card for membership. I suppose she thought I would have the gall to show up and say, "I got a text message from Tamra for a free membership!" It's almost laughable. Needless to say, I don't go to her gym and she didn't attend the Kentucky Derby with me.

There is nothing else to say regarding the Shag, Marry, Kill game that I haven't already discussed in great length in any of my previous blogs. I said the word "marry" and that's that. Tamra even glared at me on the way out of the Valentine's Party and repeated it. "Marry you?" Tamra has said multiple times she couldn't even remember because she drank too much and there are even text messages where she says it too. Her story changes continually, like the words that come out both sides of her mouth.

During the Reunion, Tamra said many more hurtful things that you didn't see. She went on to talk about my son Preston and my marriage. We all remember the episode in the park where Preston hit me on the head with his elephant. He was asleep in the car and he had a mini temper tantrum. He was three -- it happens. I would assume most mothers have had it happen at some point. In addition, my husband and I got in a fight on my birthday. I feel awful about it, yet it made us closer. I just wanted what every woman wants -- to feel special because of her man. I am a big time believer in learning from your mistakes and that won't ever happen again. However none of those incidents had anything to do with Tamra. But on her quest to hurt everyone, she managed to drag in some irrelevant topics. I know it's all to deflect from what's going on in her life and to make someone else look bad. . .but it does hurt nonetheless. My babies and my marriage are my life so I guess her goal was to attack the things closest to my heart because she can't fight fair.

I hope you enjoyed this season and I hope you had a fabulous summer!!! The fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I say bring on football and cooler weather.
