Hello everyone! I have had a crazy schedule lately, so I'm sorry I missed blogging last episode! I'm glad I did though, because this week church really put things in perspective for me.
It is so easy for me to lash out after seeing an episode where hateful accusations are made about me and hurtful words are thrown around. I've openly admitted that it is difficult sometimes for me to keep my mouth shut after watching one of those episodes, especially after getting beat up. But when it's all said and done, I have to answer to Him one day, and when the day comes that I stand before Him, I want to look back and know that I did everything I could to please Him. Easter is next week, and THAT is what is important.
I debated whether or not I should even watch Episode 7, knowing I was about to see myself unconscious under the knife. However, my curiosity overruled the rest of me, and I sat on the chair with a pillow over my face, gasping and groaning through each part of the surgery. It's THE most surreal experience I've ever had. . .watching Dr. Niccole break my nose, watching myself being poked and prodded. ICK! I don't remember anything in this episode, including Jim wheeling me out of the surgery center or arriving home — so it almost seems like it was all a dream. I don't even remember the part where Jim came in and put peas over my eyes, but I have to say that was the cutest thing ever! Are we in 1950 though? Frozen peas for an ice pack instead of the cute pink ice bag I had!?! He totally cracked me up with his comment about telling the kids that dinner was on Mommy's face! That's hilarious! Jim can think of the funniest things to say in difficult moments. He was so great throughout my recovery -- always checking in on me, bringing me soup, keeping the kids calm around, laying around watching movies with me, bringing me magazines, cracking jokes whenever possible, which reminded me that laughter truly is the best medicine. He is the love of my life and my best friend! Thanks for putting up with me babe.
I wanted to take the time to thank you for sharing your story about your sinuses on camera. I took your story into my allergist's office. I told him, " I think I have the same thing Alexis does". Well he had no idea what I was talking about so he went and got one of his nurses and she explained the episode to him far better than I was. He ordered an MRI and he does see a deviation in my septum (spelling??) and a lot of swelling. So another round of antibiotics (1 pill 3 times a day for 14 days) then another MRI and a surgical consult. I just finished my 5th round 5 days ago. This will be my 6th round of antibiotics since December. Any tips you have for recovery would be greatly appreciated. I don't watch every episode but I just happened to catch that one. Thank God I caught it and thank you for sharing.
Alexis, you have really blossomed this season. I'm proud of you. I hope you have fully recovered from your surgery and it is totally your business if you wanted to enhance your looks. Personally, I believe the sinus aspect as I have the same issues. Your new nose is really cute. Gretchen is not a good friend to you. She always supported you if she felt you would be against anyone she didn't like. You are so much better than that and Tamra hasn't changed, she is so vindictive. Stay true to yourself, your family and above all else our Heavenly Father. God Bless you and your family.
P.S. I think you are an angel for giving Vicky a chance to be a friend because God can change any person or situation.
I recommend you have a serious conversation with Jim about whether this show is strenthening your marriage or slowly tearing it apart. If in the end you wind up with lots of money but a broken family, you might realize it was not worth it. Reality TV does not support or promote traditional family values, rather it thrives on controversy, so please be smart about what you're dragging your family into. Also, it is so frustrating to see everyone giving you compliments on your looks, Alexis - as if there's nothing more to value! Is that really what you think of yourself? BE CONTENT!
I can not believe you think you were doing a good job during that interview. The experts got to say nothing.
Alexis dear I'm sure this won't be published but, I KNOW you don't really believe you are a good television reporter. If you spent half the time preparing for a segment that you spend in the mirror then MAYBE you would be able to get through a segment without stumbling over the most simple words. I would imagine you were asked to not come back after that fake dinner with your husband where he asked you to step down from the reporting job. Riiiight....we believe they left the option up to you..........
are you fricking kidding me....your husband TELLS you to quit your tv job because you are "changing the terms of the agreement" , "being one flesh, wives stay home". He even has the nerve to tell you he "lets you get overwhelmed" . Aren't you in control of your life? Your fox 5 commitment is at a crossroads...did you know this before this dinner? Remember "you have only so much time in a day to raise HIS children, you need to say no to some things". How about you say no to him. When his business needed the money he was all up for you to work at anything and everything so it did not affect HIS lifestyle, but now you are getting fame from this show and fox 5...too much for this "man" to have his wife over shadow him....what an axx...
OMG Alexis, I saw that Bravo viewers are commenting on Jim's concern to keep you home and have you quit Fox 5, because they think "you aren't good at it". I recently you tubed the actual segment that aired, and you really did quite well. I've watched some of your other clips, and you are truly well suited for the position at Fox 5. Bravo editting showing the other women "Tamra & Heather" badmouthing you and showing innacurate portrayals of your news segments is shameful. The segments on Fox 5 truly show a different, more professionally minded Alexis. Can't wait until the reunion! P.S. it just goes to show you are so great that you are who the other women love to Hate! This totally reminds me of what happened to Camille Grammer on her first season where she claims she was villanized. I totally believe it now. Also, can't believe Gretchen didn't show for you at the hospital and showed for Tamra when you were clearly in much worse condition:..(
Your husband uses religion to control you. Very sad. I admire you for trying to better yourself by working and being ambitious.
alexis does not need to take any tips from tamra.t is a mean girl who has bullyed lex to know end.if you people are true adults you would see that.tamra had breast implants at alexis age.tamra is like 10 years older so quit raging on lex .heather is also starting to name call alot.i am glad peggy is gone.now heather is acting like queen B.as i said what comes around goes around and karma is a bleep.lex has a cameo on GH if it turns into more she should leave those self centered bullying women.lex would rather act like you then use valger words and name call like tamra.rock on lexie.bravo print please
Alexis, you were so intent on getting your own point of view that you didn't even let your guests finish a sentence. When you did talk it was just a waste of time. Clearly this is not the job for you.
Who supported you before you married Jim? Maybe you stay with him because you have to. Are you talented at anything? Gretchen tired of you when you threw the tantrum at the Bunco party.
"Christians" like you and your husband are the kind that turn people off to organized religion. Can we all say "hypocrite."Live your life how you want. Have whatever priorities you choose, but don't drag Jesus into it. Ditto to Vicky.
Alexis, it's absolutely amazing for me to witness your continues lack of self respect and dignity -- you come across as insecure house keeper who also perform sexual favors to your master/owner Jim. No matter how stupid and invalid exucuses your husband would use in the name of his "Christian" beliefs, the truth is that he needs to control you and your decisions completely. What a shame that you let him treat you this way in front of the whole country! To me as a viewer, your religion is nothing but a hiding mask to hide your clear unhappiness. I truly feel sorry for you.
The scene with Alexis's husband telling her she had to quit Fox 5 was a clear manipulation. Alexis was likely fired from Fox 5 and the dinner scene was a cover-up to make it seem like Alexis was going to quit. Very transparent. Another poster mentioned Alexis is no longer listed as an employee at Fox 5. Enuff said. Except that I really don't like it when people spend so much time fixated on their personal appearance. I wonder how much time Alexis spends studying the bible verses caring for her personal appearance. I think she exercises ALOT in fear of losing that figure. Take a tip from Tamara and have your implants reduced. It's harder to find breast cancer with implants. Would be a shame for some1 to suffer cancer b/c it's so important to have big boobies. Best of luck to you. Tell Jim to film with the rest of the cast. Slade is able to overcome the drama, even when it makes him look bad.
Alexis, I am very proud that you are really trying to become more independent instead of just being a Stepford Wife. I understand you are trying to balance your family while trying to find your own place in the world and I hope Jim will learn to accept it! Kudos to you!
I agree with your husband Jim, you need to quit FOX 5, only because you are not good at it!! You are pretty full of yourself. Yes, you are very pretty...with the help of all that makeup, dye job, etc... You also need to read the Bible. If you are truly a Christain, you would not be dressing the way you do...Poor Alexis if the attention is not on you...you pout. I am more of a Heather fan...she is real.
you do walk the walk.do not listin to the - we are not perfect just because we are christians.maybe some think we are sopose to be.wake up people.you have alot of fans.bravo print for lex.
I hope that you continue to follow your dreams and career goals, but your husband using religion to make you choose is not right. He should also remember that you are to support each other "for better or for worse" and this might one of the moments and test in your marriage. I was married once and had a husband that wanted me home and when I decided to get out and become a working career driven woman, needless to say he wasn't happy and we divorced 7 years later and almost tryied to leave me with nothing. If Jim loves you, he will support anything you do, as you support him in anything he does. Just some food for thought.
OMG!!!!!Alexa as a Journalist in your talk show can you let people finish a sentecne without your interraption????? You sound like a lunetic....
Alexis, I think you are brilliant and bright and beautiful. Please never lose faith in YOURSELF. Even those blessed with superior intellects than what we have can waste it all on unpleasantries and negativity. YOU are gorgeous inside and out.
you stink at the news business, i think you must need more college classes..you cant remember peoples names and cant pronounce their professions, plus you dont let them talk..how rude for an interviewer. hey i did find you a friend tho..SARA!!!lol and your husband says he'll take your coat but then stood there and watched you take it off, doesnt the man help the lady take it off..lame
Maybe Jim wants you to quit your news gig because you are not very good at it. You messed up the butt segment royally and that segment last night was horrible. A journalism class in college???LOLOLOL You are too self centered to interview people...that was laughable. By the way...do all news "anchors" get ready (do their own make-up) in the community ladies room? You are so low on the totem pole that they do not even give you a dressing space. Thank you so much for another evening of Stupidity With Alexis. I wanted to you to leave but your antics are just hilarious to miss. Pray on that.
Your great. The only thing i say that is negative is your job on fox. You have a really hard time talking. Let the guest finish before you speak and LISTEN when they speak. I wonder if you had your eyes done. You look so different and its not the nose job either. what gives..
Alexis,... really.. tell your hubby ..thats right when you got married God said we are one!!! it works both ways!!! your not his slave... he sees it that way!!! he is living by the old testement.. and also tell him blacks are not slaves anymore either!!!
Interesting that I just looked on Fox 5 San Diego's website and your picture wasn't there listed under "News Anchor"...... Alexis...taking 1 class in college (which you probably didn't finish) in Broadcasting doesn't make you an anchor. Get over yourself!!! You are a gorgeous lady but you don't have a "career" in the news biz. It is soooo annoying to hear you talk about your job on Fox 5! And please....have some manners and chew with your mouth closed! You were out to dinner with your husband and chewing and eating with your mouth open....use some of your money from FOX 5 and buy yourself some manners! UGH!!!!
You always come across as trying to convince yourself of something that isn't true. One example is you indicate what a great job your doing on the news program when reality is you do an awful job. Keep telling yourself you do a great job and maybe it will come true. Same goes with your constant comments of what a great husband you have. You say it so much it comes across as insecure as though you wish it were true. Another example was your nose operation. You constantly reminded everyone of how painful your sinuses were and how much this operation improved things. Again trying to defer from truth of getting nose operation. It's sad how insecure you are but I suspect this stems from childhood issues.
Good luck! Michael
OMG.......I was so embarrassed for you during your channel 5 segment. You did not pronounce the gals name correctly, couldn't say adolescent psychologist, and when you asked them a question they could not answer because you kept talking. I had to laugh when you said you do a good job because you had a journalist class in college. You will not be getting a talk show and after that performance I imagine they will be cutting you loose soon. Stick with your day job raising kids and that is not because your husband says that. He makes me sick...male chauvinist.
What a joke! You had a journalism course in college....so did everyone and we are not all qualified to be in front of the camera....speaking. If it just required the application of lip gloss, you would be a winner; but, it requires other skills....skills which you clearly do not possess. Please stay home and continue to ....perhaps design clothes (Is that still a possibility?)
Why people insist on kissing your behind on this blog I will never understand. Listening to people who call themselves "Christian" and then act the COMPLETE opposite, all the while preaching it to everyone else like it makes them a better person, makes me SICK. If you want to talk the talk then you better be able to walk the walk. Talk about a wolf in sheep's clothing.
A cameo on general hospital.i am so proud of you.i have not watched soaps for awhile but when i did i watched G.H. luved sonny c and brenda when she was on.and days when patch steve and kayla marybeth was on and lisa rinna.i thought those were the best 2 soaps.i will forsure be watching now.you are my fav.housewive out of all and even if you are on just a few shows or it turns into more you go girl.can not wait to see if you will be the sweet one like on oc or try a diff.role and be a mean girl type.it is acting so does not matter.i think that is a great move on your part because you can learn to speak in front of people more and it will get eaiser.god bless your family.bravo please print for lex.let her know how proud we are of her secret she can now share with us.thanks.
Lex I sense your dealing with some issues we do not know about and truely it is your business and not mine but Gretchen needs to wake up, smell the coffee where Tamera and Vickie are concerned and show you some compassion, understanding and be a friend.
Tamera is simply manipulating her, Heather doesnt matter. I have NEVER ever heard of her, do not see any "actress potential" in her either and she comes off as a snob, who feels she is better than everyone else, *poof* be gone Heather. I sincerely hope she does NOT return and wish Jeana was back. Jeana would be there 4 U now if she was around.
I wont ever live the lifestyle in which the ladies of OC do BUT I am a happier person, who lives a simple life that is DRAMA FREE and for that I AM BLESSED!
Hang in there kiddo!
i just seen the video clip of the upcoming episode with u and Jim at dinner where he was wanting u to quit the Fox 5 morning show. i totally respect ur relationship but if u give in u will rescent him as time goes by...trust me. sometimes roles reverse and thats ok, he just needs to understand this.
Alexis you're amazing.
I know the women are always rolling their eyes at you when you talk about Jesus, or talk about church, but it’s good to see you're not ashamed of your faith. I wouldn’t exactly call you a "Model Christian", but it's nice to see how your faith calms you down and lets you see what's important. Your looks though, aren't important go God for you are beautiful in his eyes, bump or no bump. I agree with some people when they say you need to relax and breathe (now that you can!). When the girls get on your last nerve, you're quick to jump and break, but keep in mind that GOD loves you, your family loves you, and that makes you a Virtuous woman . So who cares what they think, feel or say? Concentrate on your faith, and be an example to the other women. Show them that you can walk with stride, not because you have amazing heels on, but because you have God on your side leading the way.
and as far as people talking about you cussing on the show and such, look, we all make mistakes. Your words/actions may not be favorable to God, but you're a human being. you react when things go bad. People are going to judge you and try to make you look bad all the time because you speak out about your faith, that's life and that's what comes along with being a Christian. The show is always going to play the "ugly" scenes, but God knows your HEART, and thats all that matters!
I don't want to knock the wind out of your sails, but the use of frozen peas on the face after surgery is quite common. The peas are small and easy to lay across the facial curves. Just sayin
Accept the fact that Tamra is jealous of you, you are tall and she is not. You are younger. BUT she gets you in banter, you are NOT quick on your feet. You have trouble expressing yourself, STOP explaining yourself to her and the other trashy women on this show already. AND stop being such a baby about a sinus surgery. FIND yourself, slow down, think before speaking, RELAX.
I love you and respect you. You are a very kind and sincere person. I love your sensitive side. Tamra is a "bruja" (a mean spirit and bully witch).
Your nose looks beautiful.
The best for you and your family.
Hey Alexis DOnt listen to any of the Haters here. They just want what you have. A great Husbdand and beautifull children. I would be jealous too. No wonder all they do is talk bad about you and Jim. They dont Know you or Jim that well. All they want is for you to quit the show and thats not gonna happen. Please dont let that happen. Dont let the Haters Get you Down. They always call you Jesus barbie whitch will send them all straight to hell. Its wrong and so Cruel. You can Praise the Lord as Many times a day as you want too. What gives them the right to say youre not a christian or dont act like one. Thats just wrong ! And plain stupid. They have no right to Criticize you at all. Who are they? NoN Important factors in your Life.
can not wait to see the so called camping trip in a few weeks.hope all the bellinos are well and you had a super easter.keep being the kind hearted person you are.god bless and keep you in his arms.bravo print for lexie
I'm glad to hear that you're doing well after your surgery. I too had a septoplasty. In fact, this month make 1 year. However, I did not get the Rhinoplasty done. In my case,I was having chronic migraines, to the point where I was on daily medication. My life if wonderful now. I can breath soo much better. I know exactly how you felt during your recovery period, and now that it has helped your breathing. I"m sure your sense of smell is magnified. Isn't it amazing?? You did the right thing!! Take care :)
I think you're great! Why people have to be so hateful is beyond me. It always bugs me when people who talk about their faith get bashed. Keep being yourself- you are exactly right about having to answer at the end of our lives- keep rising above all the negative people out there!
How dare people try and bring alexis down she is a beautifull amazing person and mother and wife , hi alexis iam mandy from scotland you are my favourite housewife you and not just all about money and you real! You could have nothing in this world and you would still be the same like me x your children and sooo beautifull and you have an amazing husband can't belive all the comments I have seen people are sooo jealous of you I hope you and your family are all good will be looking forward tooo watching you don't ever let any comments get too you these are sad folk behind a computer jealous of you HATERS go awayy happy easter xxxxbyeeee god bless
Within the past year, my hip broke & I had to have a total knee replacement on both of my knees. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc. & live with pain on a daily basis. After my surgeries, I never, ever laid around & had someone feed me a carrot or noodle. I only spent 8 days out of the normal 4 - 6 weeks in a rehab center after my hip surgery & came home after 2 days after both knee replacements. And did I mention that I live alone? I didn't have a nurse standing by my bed. I had one come 3 times that first week I was home after my hip & once after my knees. You see, I'm not an attention seeker like you are Alexis. Watching you laying in that bed, acting like you were on death's door made me sick! For someone like myself who is only 49 years old & has to make ends meet on only a little over $700 a month, watching your behavior in general is disgusting. Maybe if that silver spoon that you got when you said "I Do" to Jim wasn't in your mouth your surgery wouldn't have been so painful
Alexis I think your a good person!
All those ladys except for Gretchen are just plain mean.
It's a show so of course they are going to talk bad about each other.
Keep looking beautiful. AS far as MIss Piggy goes shes not a nice person.
The other one Vickies friend is just plain evil.
Alexis you look fabulous girl. In my opinion, you and Gretchen are the best looking women on the show. You have always looked beautiful to me, but I guess even beautiful women are not happy with there looks. Your BEAUTIFUL. God Bless You and your beautiful family. BTW, your kids are so cute.
Hey Alexis, glad that the surgery went well, I was cringing everytime the doctor was trying to get the bandage off, and cut gretchen some slack for not seeing you five days after the surgery. you look gorgeous.
