There is a reason I've been talking about it and never followed through with it. . .it's called fear! I have the right to get whatever surgery I want, and I think we can all see that I'm not one to hide anything I want to have done. So when Tamra says "Just own it," HELLO! I am owning it. I'm doing the procedure on national television. . .I don't think there is any hiding in that! Yes, I'm defensive because all of you are talking about me! That would make anyone defensive, and frankly, buzz off! I'm not looking for a fight. But Heather sure is willing to start fights, giving her opinion every single time it's not asked for!
For Heather and Terry to claim they did not who "Lex" was. . .um, I'm not buying that. She is trying to make it seem like I'm the one who's the airhead. Well, she should stop using such bookish ways of communicating and begin to understand that perhaps she isn't quite as perceptive and intelligent as she thinks she is. Lex is short for Alexis, just as Gretch is short for Gretchen, and Heath would be short for Heather, Tam is short for Tamra, and Vic is short for Vicki. But let's not forget, Heather comes from a different, more learned culture that is far above all of us, so they probably do not use abbreviated names in the imagined land of academia where she makes every effort to believe she lives. . .while married to a plastic surgeon in Orange County.
The most difficult part of this entire evening is seeing Gretchen turn on me. Last year she would have stood up for me if Tamra was attacking me. I have been by Gretchen's side for two years now. Gretchen says she didn't get involved because I was handling myself just fine, and that I never got in the middle of she and Tamra. I spent numerous occasions defending Gretchen to Tamra, especially in group settings. The bottom line is, if anyone I knew, friend or not, was talking about Gretchen the way Tamra was talking about me that night, I would have defended Gretchen. I knew at that moment I was on my own island. It really hurts my heart to know that I don't have Gretchen to back me. Only time will tell if our friendship can sustain.
Tamra just doesn't like u cause you are gorgeous She's so jealous of u she will do anything to try and make u look bad on camera!!! The vacation was awful. U were ambushed. Gretchen has turned on u stay away from her. Where I'm from, we seem to share a lot of the same values as you. Us woman are good woman with good values and literally fast forward through many scenes with tamra because she's sooo awful. She can't stand it that eddys spank bank is full of images of you!!!! Lol. I know that wasn't very nice. aLEXI PLEASE stand up to her. They say things that are not true about you and u need to defend urself
i think you as well as tam, vick,and gretch needs to take a chill pill before you all stroke out! you get upset over the most tiny things..wow unreal but thats how you come across..unreal. as far as heather and terry, they have class and isnt pretending to be people they are not. like you and jim does. straighten up and fly right girl enjoy
Gretchen was taking up for you...she kept correcting Tamra and Heather. I did feel sorry for you because Tamra invited you and then said such nasty things. She has no class!!
i luv what you said .you will never go down without a fight.there is a song alittle like that.and lex as far as you saying your own island.you are never alone.you have the lord jim family us out here.i also am seeing vicki come to your defense.you both keep the lord on your side.gretchen can try and justifie and say she had your back.watch the tape she did not.also on last weeks show she was laughing at the table when tamra was dogging you again.you are now being bullyed.just remember what comes around goes around.you keep being the true person.they were all talking about your nose job.they are full of it.i would not trust gretchen anymore unless she was truely sorry.she is starting to be mean like tamra.you had her back and slades for years.you and vic favs this year.
Alexis, i feel so bad for you...i think some of these girls have just become to mean and i am very sad that Gretchen seems to act like the argument was what fractured the friendship! I love all you girls (all for different reasons, except for Vickie) so i hope things start to get better for u as the season goes along. Crossing my fingers!!! God Bless! Keep your kind heart, people who are mean and cruel, karma always comes back for them!
I was on your side for once. I'm a loyal Vicky fan, sorry. But I definitely think Gretchen was not being a loyal friend to you. And then for her to lie to you in the parking lot...says a lot...I've never liked her.
Alexis, I'm not a fan of yours but I certainly agree you were thrown under the bus by BFF Gretchen and Tamra. I guess you and Vicki were supposed to be the evening entertainment!
Actually, It looked like Dr. Dubrow was pointing with two fingers, from the edge of the nose to right before the high cheek bone. Apparently, that is where the maxillary sinuses are. The size of the sinuses varies from person to person.
@CerebralCheck Alexis u r awesome! Mr dubrow was talking about u but isn't man enough to admitt it. Heather coming over there and saying u were taking things wrong shows exactly how fake she is! U r awesome. They all look so stupid. U r awesome
I LOVED the two dresses you put on!!!! Each one was perfect on you. Don't worry so much about the others, keep your friendship with Gretchen, she does have your back, count her in always. You have to keep in mind that you are very beautiful, others might conceal their envy with their unkindness.
Alexis , I'm with you when Heather said she didn't know who "Lex" was ,she full of crap !! I think you are funny to watch and I truley think you are a good person. Keep smiling Lex cause these lady are a bunch of bully and vickie being the pack leader. lol And one more thing Heather said she never watch OCH is another bunch of crap. A person don't come on a show like this without doing there homework. And her ( Heather) 80's outfit was a joke,if a person has to explain there outfit IT DIDN"T WORK !! lol
Alexis, I really like you so much. I believe you have a good heart and honestly can't understand why you subject yourself to the others?? I pray for you and your family every night during what I call those I care for prayer time. They say the meanest things that make no sense. Like you talk about God but have big boobs?? SOOOO and ??? that is crazy and mean Tamra!! Like you if I'm around any of the people who are good with come backs I get tangled too. I just have a hard time with the treatment you' get for saying you love the Lord. Hang in there girl. They are ugly and jealous or they would spend so much time and effort to cut you down. And for what they say about you being a Christian,, Well they may want to think about "Judge not, least you be judged yourself " God Bless!!
I find it sad that you are so threatened by Heather as it seems to comsume you and make you so unhappy. I have to question what the reason might be since she has always handled situations with decorum and class. If you feel "academically challenged" by her, take some classes. It might make you fell better.
Oh Alexis, love when your true colors show! And by the way, "HeathE" is a nickname for Heather, "Heath" is a male name i.e Heath Ledger. They are not pronounced the same, so not the best way to prove your point. Love that you are trying to call Heather and Terry out on playing dumb when you cant even figure that one out!
Surely Terry knew he was in on a "gossip" conversation and like you said it did not matter if they were talking about Heidi whoever, the fact was, they were gossiping, and that person they were all gossiping about wasn't able to defend themself. You don't join in on those convo's if you are an upstanding person, but just stick with Tammy she will drag you thru mud. She has mud all over herself. I can't stand Tammy. Then she says, gosh Gretchen you sure are defensive, hellooo Tammy, you were gossiping about her! Then Heather becomes all patronizing with you....uggggghhhhh If I were there I woulda had your back bigtime!
Hello Alexis, I was scarced for you and of course I love you and your family! You are a very beautiful person inside and out. I think you handle the new girl very well! I think you fight your battles very well! I miss Jim at the party with you but he is a man of strong faith. So don't be upset when some people may not invite him to a lot of those type of functions I think they respect him a man of the church on a higher level then they are because I respect him and I really think that he don't feel comfortable in those places. He don't want to hurt anyone feeling so don't be so hard on him about those things.
Don't worry Alexis. Anyone with half a brain (and no, I did not get a brain lift!) can see the ridiculousness of this fight. You stick up for what's right! Gretchen SHOULD have said something. While I dont really think Terry was saying anything wrong, they were DEFINITELY all talking about you!!! Tamra is so rude! I love you and your family, and am not sure if I would watch if you weren't part of it!
WOW you have got to be kidding.. First off trying to use words you have NO clue what they mean is just NOT for you. Second, Gretchen did nothing wrong. Terry and his wife are NEW so they dont know you go by LEX.. and darling you do not call someone named Heather.. Heath.. Dont know where you were educated but its totally incorrect. ( or lack of education ) Lex could stand for Lexi or Lexus Alexandra the list is endless. Heather is right you need a brain lift. And Terry was 100 percent correct when he pointed to sinuses.. You just looking for someone to fight with. You cant fight to save your life. And your so OVER dramatic with that dumb surgery. Get over yourself.
If you didn't want your nose job to be public knowledge, why the hell are you on a reality TV show? BTW, you are NOT a news anchor. Your segment with "Dr. Booty" is far from NEWS. It's filler. You are no Katie Couric. Good luck!
I've always enjoyed you on the show, and even more tonight. You are so real and have such a great heart. Thanks for showing your true colors...C~
TEAM ALEXIS!!!! You go girl, let them all have it, they can't touch you!!! Tell them all off!! ( Except Vickie.) Gretchen needs to realize who had her back, if she doesn't let her go!!! She will be battling with Tamara before you know it. You are the only one that has any class or beauty on the show. Your nose looks great, but I thought it looked great before too!
Uhm, Alexis, when Doc Terry pointed to where sinus' are, you agreed with a nasty "I KNOW this is where your sinus' are", so if he was wrong.... I'm just sayin'
Have you noticed you have to remind the audience on a weekly basis that you are an "intelligent woman" or how "smart" you are. Is there a reason you constantly have to remind people of your so-called intellect? Again, I'm just sayin'...
Hope you learn to chill out.
Your ability to rewrite history that is actually on film is remarkable. You're beautiful but you also appear to be paranoid and delusional. Get over yourself.
Ah yes, I noticed Immediately Dr. Terry's knowledge of sinus location was off.....quite a bit! I thought he was trying to be funny? Maybe? Then, later, when he realized he hurt your feelings and said he felt bad.....Awww, that was nice, in that moment I liked him.....only to turn around, both he and Heather, and make snide comments about your intelligence? That was down right mean. He is a Dr.....first do no harm, right? I was disappointed by both his and Heather's behavior. It appears they decided to go into defensive mode and add another insult to make themselves feel better about themselves.
I honestly don't think Gretchen did anything to purposely hurt you....I honestly don't. I don't think any of the wives truly understood your fear. Of course there are a lot worse things one can go through but that doesn't dismiss your fear of going under both the anesthisa & the knife.
I do believe Tamra was dismissive of your fears as was Heather. Both cruel and a mean.
Gretchen did stick up for you...I think you seem very insecure starting with the Peggy thing and then now with Tamara and Gretchen making up. She has been a good friend to you, but you have not really been as supportive this season as you claim to be. You did not get involved in the fight between Gretchen and Vicki, so why should she get in the middle of your fight with Tamara. I think you need to grow up and stop being so insecure.
ALEXIS, You had every right to be upset. They pretty much couldnt face you and tell you that they were all talking about your nose surgery. Be strong and watch your back.
Who cares about a noise job seriously. If you don't hear the whole conversation then stop the drama and the crying. If you don't like things out in the open then don't say anything and maybe television is not the place for you. You have to one up everyone and make things about you.
You have a beautiful nose and plastic surgery is not a big deal. Too bad Gretchen is a bad friend and felt the need to announce a confidence at party. You look great though!
Alexis, Gretchen tried to defend you to Tamara, when she (tamara) gets something in her mind, she thinks it's the truth. just as she did with the slade situation. just because she thinks it, dont make it true. it was very hurtful for her to say to you that you have a big nose. she is a very mean spirited girl, not likeing her much anymore at all. please work things out with gretchen, she is the ONLY other true, honest, intelligent woman on this show, she has your back girl.
Alexis -- You are beautiful, kind, and funny. You are smart because you always try to be the good person -- that's a smart policy! Keep your spirit up. Sorry about Gretchen -- I don't think she is your true friend... she was clearly trying to make fun of you... Tamra and Gretchen are the mean-girl-duo now... .You are a gem -- keep shining!
I know any surgery has risks, but the comparison between how you acted for a elective nose job and Brianna who was facing a possible cancer diagnosis was shocking. You need to own your decisions. It was your choice to get your nose done, and whatever sinus issues fixed, and you acted like you were going in for brain surgery. Toughen up girl and take a moment to look at how Brainna handled her situation which was far worse. I think you are very self involved and you need to look outside yourself-- and toughen up for Pete Sake!!
PLEASE KEEP STANDING UP FOR YOURSELF AND DON'T TAKE NO PRISONER'S. THEY WERE SIGNIFYING AT THE OTHER TABLE ABOUT YOUR NOSE JOB....TAMRA IS JEALOUS OF YOU! GRETCHEN SHOULD HV SAID MORE, BUT SHE WONT MK THAT MISTAKE NEXT TIME...
Were we watching the same episode? Because Gretchen defended you, and Heather tried to explain things to you.
Hey Friend, I am so sorry about this last episode. The mean girls are needing to feel better about their empty lives so you are the target this year. Gretchen says that you didn't dive in last year to defend her, but you would stand next to her and support her 100% after the fact and on camera. Gretchen's behavior was gross. Standing next to Tamra ..laughing..giggling. All i can say is she must have some huge issues with self worth, self esteem to buddy up to a person that has caused her soooo much harm. Stand strong and know that you are beautiful both inside and out!
Alexis you pointed to the same place that Terry did, you even agreed with him!! I have to call you out on that. Tamara was right for years you have wanted a nose job,never once have you mentioned you had nose problems. You say what suits you at the time, whether it's the truth or not.
Good God Alexis, you have got to be the BIGGEST BABY I have seen in my 60 yrs of life!! I could not believe you at BUNCO and also at the Dr. Office. Come On SERIOULSY Grow Up!
Alexis, I thought it was so mean of Tamara to tell you your nose was kinda big. She has always been the most jealous of all housewives and actually lowered the class level of this show when she arrived. You were beautiful before your surgery and will continue to be after. Truth is you did have a good reason to go under the knife and this gave you the ability to get the cosmetic work done too. I have had many friends that had deviated septum surgery and their drs asked them if they also wanted some cosmetic improvements since they would already be under. I had rhinoplasty and it took me a very long time to get the nerve to do it. It's very understandable for those that have gone through it. Good luck with your healing and don't let the haters get to you.
Again, you are a big baby! Your "poor me" act is getting old. Also, tell your old man husband that he's a little old for the backwards cap thing. Just amplifies his loser tendencies.
Hold your head up girl...because They're the Ones that look bad NOT YOU! YOU LOOK FINE NOW, HOPE YOU FEEL AS GOOD! PEACE
I missed what upset you so much about them talking about your surgery. Your personal life would be personal if you werent on tv.. but you made your nose job everyones business.. Why are you so mad at gretchen I am sooo lost.. She has been a good friend I think you dont think woman can have more than one friend.. why? You are insecure and you shouldnt be..
There are bigger fish to fry, then for you to get caught up in other people having a conversation about you having a nose job, which is a true statement, since we are "stating facts." From watching this episode, no one was making fun of you and clearly, no one was hiding that fact either if they were. I REALLY think you have made a mountain out of a mole-hill, translation, you are making something bigger than what it really is or to exacerbate things. As far as "having your back," you need to know that everyone handles situations differently than you do, therefore, you cannot expect other people to do the things or live their life the way that you do. Everyone is different and it doesn't make you any better or them. It just shows you the versatility in people's life and how they deal with issues and with you being a Christian woman, you shouldn't be so close-minded nor should you be mocking other's intelligence levels for you do not always sound so bright on national television. So, I think there might be a few things you could LEARN from Heather.
Alexis!! Let me start off by saying God bless you! Your amazing. I never make comments, I don't facebook, but I do watch every single episode, I am a mother,wife, I have been w/my hubby for 15yrs, hes my 1st&only, and he is def. my best friend!You remind me of me so much, I think that you are strong, beautiful, and very smart, you know what your doing and the other women cant stand it! Most of all your a believer of our Lord and that's the ONLY thing that matters most! Then of course our family, I just wanted you to know I am one of your fans and you motivate me so much!I am a strong woman but there are those days&thats when I sometimes go on your website for that extra boost! So thank u:)any whoo you take care and you don't change for no one! The people that mind don't matter, and the people that matter don't mind! I read that quote&fell in love! :)
I totally understand how you felt tonight, everyone against you basically!! I do believe Gretchen should have said something to Tamra, and like you said, why even mention anything about you when we all know Tamra doesn't like you. I don't understand why Pretentious-Heather lied when she said they weren't talking about you, I mean initially they weren't until Gretchen mentioned you were getting a surgery; it was then when the conversation turned to talking about Alexis.
Talking about Heather, I wonder if she was born in a silver spoon. I frankly believe she was a nobody, got lucky and married a rich men so now she thinks she's better than everyone...how classy of her!
On the other hand I do have to say that I don't agree with you being so upset about Tamra not inviting Jim because last season you said that Jim didn't want to get involved with that group of woman that is why he is no longer on camera, so...
Bottom line: get your show!!! You don't need to be around that negativity, including Gretchen, she just proved to you she is NOT a real friend. Real friends don't throw friends under the bus, I strongly belive it all comes to jealousy, they are ALL jealous of you! Good luck to you on all your endeavors
I'm not a plastic surgeon or a reality star just a single mother of 5 going to nursing school, so please don't judge what I'm about to say. I unfortunately missed the last 2 episodes (because I can't pay the cable bill) so I missed the part about the sinuses. But I know that we have more than one set of sinuses...just saying. Is it possible Dr. Dubrow was pointing out a separate set of sinuses?
