Alexis Bellino

Alexis admits she isn't proud of some of her behavior this episode, but she also thinks a few people were being hypocritical.

on Feb 22, 20120

Back to Tamra and Eddie talking on the boat ride -- Eddie says he thinks they should stop drinking because that was the main cause of their fight. That is probably a good idea, but good luck getting Tamra to agree! Then Tamra switches gears and says now she doesn't care about Vicki and Eddie touching. . . What? Is anyone else confused?

When Gretchen and I were in the limo, I was sincerely worried for Gretchen jumping right back into her friendship with Tamra. I remember everything Gretchen went through last year, and I am concerned that it could all happen again. A bracelet and acting all chummy-chummy; it just felt like there was another motive, an agenda. Then we see Gretchen and Tamra going to the sex shop together. . .couldn't they have kept it at coffee? LOL!

Let me be the first to say I was so excited about Heather's painting party. What a new and refreshing idea! A party with a purpose! I loved the low-carb menu, and I loved Timree! I want to personally apologize to Heather for calling her "pretentious." I have always considered her "buttoned-up," but never pretentious. I like Heather, I think she is funny and has a good heart. During the party that evening, I thought we were all joking and having a great time; however, it definitely seemed like there was friction looking back.

First of all, when all of us were discussing Tamra and Gretchen's "sex shop" visit, I felt Heather could have simply walked away from the conversation if she really didn't want to talk about any of it. I will be the first to admit that I get uncomfortable with that kind of talk, too. If things get too uncomfortable, I will excuse myself or change the subject.

It may not exactly be competitive, but you do have that annoying personality trait of turning anything anyone says and making it about YOU. Peggy's child broke her arm? Well you had an even bigger bone break back in the day! Briana has a health scare? Well, let's take this opportunity to show what a major Christian Alexis is as she leads us all in prayer. Gretchen and Tamra are friends? Well, it was Alexis who tried to get them together in the first place! I could go on an on, but you get the point.

I feel so sorry for you, you are beyond obnoxious. If you want to start making fun of Heather regarding her acting & say "Angelina Jolie is an actress," then how on earth are you allowed to call yourself a designer?? Her acting career is far more legitimate than your sad clothing line, or lack there of.

Alexis , Speak your mind girl ! Don't listen to the others . Jim was embarrassed of ever dating Peggy that's why he didn't tell anyone . . . lmbo ! Peggy is looking pretty run down . Jim's life has changed and for the better , now that the two of you are together . Everyone else is just jealous . .

Responding to a comment which caught my attention for the first time...a psychic.....Debebby.

Vicky: Spot on. Although, Don fell out of love on an intimate level, long ago. He wanted the successful wife to support the lifestyle he loved and grew very accustomed to. Unfortunately, during the honeymoon, Vicky stated on the reunion, her love tank was not filled. Game over. I also question Brooks motives with her considering the rumors. Hope she doesn't get hurt again.

Tamra: Yes I agree. I also feel Eddie would not be with her if she wasn't on the show given the age difference and her antics. She's a "one person" type. Very co-dependent and will hold on to him for dear life, as clearly displayed during their argument. She said she never loved anyone more than him, (with 4 kids) really..... and he's her hot dog stand, etc...a rocky road ahead for sure.

Gretchen: Again, I concur. Although, I disagree that Eddie will be in her near future if ever. She's the loyal type and I don't see Eddie replacing Slade. They are complete opposites. With all due respect, Eddie is not my type at all, and do not find him to be that attractive, but hey, we all are entitled to our opinions. Alexis: Spot on once again. Although, I do not see her with Slade or Don and visa versa. They don't have the money she wants, so perhaps Heathers hubby would fit that bill, so to speak. No offense, but the men would have a fun night out perhaps in her company, but at the end of the day, on an intellectual level, with no real substance, there's no chance for her with any of them. Again, just my opinion....and FINALLY....

Heather: Again I agree with a few of your observations except she does come across as being pretentious and insecure with her current "status" which is simply a mommy and a homemaker. She feels compelled to lead with the....I'm an actress, or working actress, music this, I used to do that, or whatever the case may be. (I too, was an actress, musician, but this was years ago before my babies) and I'm now proud to just be me and what you see. Except, I do not have a mansion too small for an extra bedroom nor a husband in the plastic surgery world. Good for her and I mean that wholeheartedly, but she is simply not comfortable with who she is without her past resume. So there you have it!! Stay tuned!!

Peggy should of told you from the start!!! Jim should not have kept it from you either.. You stated you 2 worked it out (behind closed doors)!! Noone knows what goes on behind them.. You are a sweat beautiful wife!! Some ppl might not understand how you back your husband.. I do.. The man is the man of the house. I back my husband all the time.. But... behind our doors that is another situation!! Stay true to yourself and family.. Tamra is a hot mess and not in a good way. Gretchen I can see being a friend of yours that you can trust.. Heather is just a rich snob.. and that isnt a bad thing JUST YET still trying to form mu opinion of her.. You are a little airheaded at times but who cares about that.. You are starting to get more confidence around the other ladies... KEEP IT UP... You and Gretchen are my FAV'S!!!

I think you of all people have no room to comment on ANYONE else on this show! You are truly the most annoying person on the show and your are a prime example of "pretentious". I have seen you personally numerous times in Orange County and sadly your exactly how they portray you on the show. (Cant blame it on editing) I think your a poor representation of people here in OC. I think its great that Tamara and Gretchen are trying to build a friendship and i feel your the last person that should be giving advise. You claim to be Christian, yet your actions do not reflect that. You need to practice what you preach and stay out of other peoples business. AND please move back to Newport... I have having to run into you here in Dana Point!

It's funny how Micah does not seem to have a problem with Peggy and Jim's past. But it does seem like you and Jim have problems. We all saw how outgoing, friendly, a hands-on father, loving husband, and personable Micah is (not to mention secure in his relationship with his wife); unlike Jim who seems to be in serious need of an enema. I don't know what is stuck up your husbands butt. Maybe that is why he always appeared miserable and "cocky". Not to mention, Jim does show he is a chauvenist (thinks he can treat women and his wife like his personal slave), and controlling individual. I guess you are too blind to see it. I do believe Jim is the reason you are so insecure and in competition. I am sure you feel there are more beautiful women out there and afraid of Jim leaving you (GOD only knows why).

I agree with Jilly4'

You know, like Peggy said in the show, you and "Jim" kept inviting Peggy and her husband over. Jim should have told you before you became friends, but he is too kinky and sickmin his mind! Peggy's husband knew all about it. There were no secrets there. Maybe it was really Jim who talked you out of submitting Peggy's name to be a housewife because he thout it might surface. Hmmm? I wonder.

Anyway, I would not have wanted an ex-girlfriend to be my best bud...so I understand your jealousy; however, Peggy"s husband knew she dated Jim, and she tried to get your husband to tell you about their past. He would have if he were decent. Before you got close.....he could have said, "Yeah, we used to date." ....so simple!

For you to "stand by your man" and believe it was more Peggy"s faught is CRAZY! I think Jim is 95% to blame. Micah knew about it, and Peggy tried to get Jim to tell you.

Really? Do you have any idea how gullible you look believing Jim? As soon as you have your own money....I am sure you will leave Jim and never look back. What a controlling and icky little man! You look like his puppet and very UNhappy! I wish you well and for you to take down the wall. Be who you really are! Try it! Everyone might actually like the real Alexis.

P.S. Go to a real marriage counselor for real advice about the Peggy/Jim affair. Wake up!

If jim didnt think you would get mad or upset about peggy than why did he want to keep it a secret from you? You are placing all the blame on peggy but Jim is more in the wrong... he is your best friend and he is hiding or lying to you about peggy.. I would be upset.. Someone that loves you so much shouldnt sneak behind your back and make a fool of you.. I think jim is ugly on the inside and out. what you see in him is beyond most of us. I also think you need to quit with the pretend christian act... you are not a forgiving person or an honest person and you are very envious of others.. and VERY judgmental.. Your jokes arent funny but you know that cause you are just jabbing comments than saying it was a joke... You have a lot, you dont have it all but that is okay appreciate what you do have...there will always be somebody better prettier and richer ...be okay with that.. dont be so hard on heather cause she does have it all.. she seems to be the good moral girl you like...

When you are gorgeous other women could be so hateful, they start with "I don't want to judge you but..." Don't listen to the haters, keep on praising God, strive to be a good Christian and do not let Tamara bully you!

Alexis, I think you are pretty and a wonderful mom and wife. I think you are genuine most of the time, but honestly the whole I am a good Christian every single chance you get is getting old. I think if you just let yourself be you and not focus on the whole Christian part, people would give you less of a hard time. You come off very "preachy" and hypocritical at the same time, which is why I think some fans do not like you. I do like you. I think you may not be the brightest bulb, but you have a sweet and generous heart and work hard. I liked Peggy also and you hold a double standard blaming her and letting your husband off scott free. It was more of his responsibility as your husband to inform you despite the "deal" you two had. Even with that deal, it is obvious you were still hurt and placed all the blame on Peggy, who attempted to inform you but was told not to by your husband. That was a difficult place for her to be in.

I hope you two become friends again. I also hope you and Heather become good friends. I think she is a good influence. I read in one of the posts that you sell pictures of yourself for $20??? who buys that? seriously, just a bit self-centred a tad don't you think?

Peggy IS THE ONE IN COMPETITION WITH YOU!!! SHE IS IN FULL DENIAL ABOUT IT THOUGH!! SHES SO DUMB TO THINK THAT YOU COMPETE WITH HER. THERE IS NO COMPETITION CAUSE HANDS DOWN YOU BLOW HER OUT OF THE WATER.... I CAN SEE IT IN YOUR REACTIONS TO HER YOU ARE CLUELESS SHE'S ACCUSING YOU OF BEING IN COMPETITION WITH HER 3 year old!!!! I feel so badly for you..Peggy is off her rocker and tries so hard to pin it on you and make you look like the crazy one.. LOVE YOU!!!!

Hey alexis! you are such a sweet girl and I see that you are actually very sensitive and caring towards others.

It is great that you apologized to Heather, and it is really big of you to recognize that you had said some things you did not mean. You are a great housewife because you are honest and come across as a really genuine person. You are obviously a great wife and mom and seem like a lot of fun.

You've handled yourself well on the show. Not sure why heather is so defensive. You were obviously making light of the Dirty tamra led conversation. That woman is vile. I thought you were funny! These girls need to lighten up.

i totally agree with CandraBeth, i don't get why u have so many haters. You are pretty much the only one on the show who has consistantly stayed true to your morals, resisted bad mouthing the other ladies, and is willing to admit when you make mistakes. I don't blame u one bit for calling Heather pretentious because she CLEARLY is (snob alert), and i am still trying to wrap my brain around all these team Peggy fans. She was SO transparent, a trouble maker and wanted to get under your skin by being chummy with the veteran ladies at your expense. The whole "Jim secret" was just the icing on the rotten friend cake and P.S. She's the jealous one who is dying for your spotlight (hello? did anyone else lol at that ridiculous claim that u were competing with her 6 year old) #loser #reachingfordramatostayrelevant #peggykickrocks

You are the hottest OC housewife. Tamra is full out jealous of you, as was your ex buddy Peggy. Those ladies (except for Gretchen) dont hold a candle up to you. HOWEVER, you do need to smarten up and not get so defensive all the time, all these ladies are calling you jealous are just projecting. Your husband Jim was underhanded with the holding back the info about Peggy. You need to pay attention to his actions, he is not trustworthy I do back the other ladies on that one. If I were you I would try and mend fences with Vicki, she is a loyal friend to those close and is not the jealous type.

Wow, if Alexis is "mean" then what does that make Tamara? Gretchen is an idiot for trusting Tamara. After all the bs that Tamara has put Gretchen through-if I were Gretchen I would accept her apology and move on, not become besties with her. Alexis is right...dont trust Tamara! And if Heather was as smart as she keeps saying then she shouldnt have formed an opinion of the ladies off of what Tamara said about each of them. Wondering if Vicki is regretting backing up Tamara and not her former bestie Jeana since it looks like Tamara is now besties with Gretchen?! Karma is a bit@h! And out of all the OC "ladies" it seems to me that Alexis and Gretchen were actually the nicer ones.

I don't know how you handle all the haters. If they don't like you then don't watch the show!!! I personally wasnt a big fan of yours at first but you have grown on me. I admire that you are becoming more independent and that you are breaking away from being all about your husband. People need to realize that the show is edited and that the producers/ writers( yes I said writers!!!) of the show read these comments and will make you into the person"character" everyone loves to hate. As for people telling you to be mad at Jim as well as Peggy. I'm sure you handled that behind closed doors. Not everything needs to be aired on TV. Continue being who you are and let the haters hate. They need to get a life.

Chasity Flanders

I don't understand all the hate towards you. I have to say you handled the Peggy situation very well. I thought it was the wrong place and time for her to want to speak with you about the friendship and where it stands. Peggy was influenced by her "Friends", Vicki and Tamara to speak with you at that moment.

Alexis, Just curious, have you ever worn your hair dark? Stop competing with Heather, she's not all that, seriously! I think you and Vicki should turn the tables on Tamara and Gretchen, become friends! lol!

Debebby

I am a psychic and this is how I read each of you:

Vicki- Love her Type A personality....Although I love Don and she made a horrible mistake choosing the other guy, I still like her. She will want to have Don back in her life....but.....stay tuned. She is a good friend and someone you want to keep close to you. She loves her kids, but work is her way of staying sane and in control. She has been consistently the same personality since episode 1.

Tamra- Back Stabber.... I have gone back and forth on her. Right now, I do not like her! She is a manipulator and NOT a true friend. She is insecure and jealous....but she does have the hottest boyfriend/ husband in housewives history!...FOR NOW....

Gretchen- Love/Cute....Out of all the women, I think Gretchen could be trusted the most! To be the youngest, she has more morals than most. I love that she stands up for herself and doesn't kiss behinds (like Tamra and Alexis). I foresee Slade OUT of the picture and Eddie IN the picture with Gretchen. The break-up between Tamra and Eddie will not be because of Gretchen. Tamra will take care of that on her own. Gretchen will come into the picture AFTER the break up. Beautiful babies ahead for them!

Alexis-Fake/Insecure/Jealous....I really do feel for Alexis because she really hopes her Christain platform will work out for her in the end, but it is only showing her to be unChristian-like. She needs to be herself and stop with the Act. I think people would like the real Alexis because we have yet to see her. Jim is not faithful....even now. With or without all the plastic surgery, Alexis could do better than Jim. He is totally controlling and disgusting. He needs a reality check! Alexis should go after Slade or Don when Gretchen and Eddie get together. She would be happier with either!

Heather-Classy/Refreshing/Real....Give her a break. She is new to the show, and we will see what a great mom and person she really is. She is not pretentious. It just appears that way in the beginning. She speaks her mind, loves her family, and doesn't need to impress anyone. I think she will be a great addition to the show. She, Vicki, and Gretchen will become close friends.

Rachael Z

I want to see the real Alexis! Be Genuine! I agree that you should end all friendship with Peggy. For some reason when she talks about the Jim relationship I do get the feeling that she is a little off. I almost think she became friends with you just to be in contact with him. What is weird is why your husband didn't tell you right away and warn and protect you from an ex? Your husband comes across as shady. The past is the past but when it becomes the here and now he should have mentioned it. Just so you could have had your eyes wide open. If he gave you excuses on why he didn't tell you than that should make you question.. Excuses are well planned lies. The reason Peggy didn't tell you is because she was in your life to get close to your husband and cause a little drama behind your back. She gave excuses as well. I hope you listen to your gut and follow your instincts.

Alexis you are absolutely right Gretchen shouldn't have made any snide or side remarks. You were the one trying to get them to be civil and eventually enjoy eachother's company. Tamra will always be Tamra and trailer trash is trailer trash, doesn't matter where you reside. Gretchen is smart and I am certain she will reflect or has for that matter. Dear you are a beautiful girl and you just need to focus when you speak. Articulating a complete thought seems t be your weakness. Your looks will not always carry you through. Sorry!! Continued success and OH! Good you have worked things out w/Jim regarding the Peggy situation, however, it was Jim's place and responsibility to tell you the "truth" not Peggy's. She obviously was uncomfortable and obviously tried to get him to tell you as to keep no secret. She is your present not your past . And it is his present and past. I do not agree that Peggy tries to put Jim down, in these episodes. SHe once "dated" him so whatever she experienced with him good bad or indifferent, she surely was around and watned to be, so to cal lhim disgusting or even refer to any size sexual comments is classless.

1. it's not fair to blame peggy - i think you're using this as an excuse to break the friendship b/c you have other issues with her. 2. why do you care if tamara and gretchen are friends? a good friend would be supportive. if they end up screwing each other again that's their problem - they knew what they were getting into. 3. glad you acknowledge that you were not very nice but funny how you still managed to get a few digs in your blog 4. forget about being a "good christian"(do you see how that's backfiring?) - it's better to just be a good person

I'm not quite sure why you keep harping on Peggy and Jim. After meeting Micah last season, Peggy obviously scored much better in the husband department.

seasonedviewer

When you started pushing I am a christain, therefore I am perfect, therefore I walk around as if nothing I do or say is wrong, you started to turn people off. Clearly, your husband and Peggy were wrong. Whether you admit it or not you have trust issues with your husband. If he keeps something like this from you what else is he hiding. Your insecurities push you to do things that are not putting you in a favorable light. Gretchen is far from the richest on the show, but, she admits that she is working towards things. You, just act, as if you have it all. It is obvious you are not the weathliest gal on the show. So, you look at the others with envy. Thus, you come across as having hate or a competitive attitude towards them. Be grateful for what you do have, works towards goals, but don't let your insecurities ruin your life.

So glad Heather has joined the show! Alexis needs to get over herself. Her head is getting bigger and bigger with each season. She needs to appreciate Heather for who she is.. a smart, beautiful woman who can be pretentious as much as she wants because at least it is real! Can't wait to see how Heather fits into the caddiness and craziness of this season!

Alexis...Alexis...Alexis... What are we gonna do with you.. Listen continue to take the high road but in doing so you can't say things like "I will continue to wish Tamra well, and that just kills her" you should of left the "and that just kills her" part out... It makes it look like you are allowing her to get under your skin.. I know it is hurtful to hear someone constantly making negative comments about you and hold your tongue but that is what you must do... Don't even give her the satisfaction!!! You should follow your husband's lead and remove yourself from the show...remove yourself from allowing them to target you... It is easy to target you cause you are not a mean girl and don't have a mean bone in your body so these girls take advantage of that!! Continue to be yourself and not allow all their drama to get you down.

Dear Bravo- As a long time viewer of all of the real housewives' series, please DO NOT ASK Alexis Bellino back next year. She is a fake person who is so competetive and is complete denial about it. Please just make her go away. Even though she would deny it, from how she appears on the series, she is insecure and to be honest just ridiculous! Please at least with OC to just actually go back to 5 women living in the OC and getting along. I apologize to Alexis' kids (not to her guido of a husband) but please get this woman off the series!!! A long time fan!

You've got an explanation for every immature, competitive, rude thing you say or do. It never flys when you try to cover tracks with "that's not what I meant", or diverting the negative attention by criticizing others. We all see through it. The close ups of your face at key moments are very telling. I wouldn't believe a word out of your mouth, without a lie detector specialist verifying it.

Your facade is crumbling. Maybe you should try being real, with yourself and everybody else.

I feel as though you are a little guppy in a sea of sharks and it's just about that uncomfortable to watch as well! It may be time for you to move on from the show and appreciate and love your family. I don't think this show allows you to shine as you should.

Alexis Don't Mind The Haters , ppl are being odeeee hard on you because of The Christian Thing. If You Were Muslim / Hindu or anything else , every1 would take is easy on you.

Regardless of how intimidated you seemed by Heather , I hope you both move to a better place , your both beautiful and authentic. Tamra is truly the villain of this season and where all the negativity needs to be directed.
