When we were all painting, Vicki and I were laughing and teasing about being new BFFs, and getting Vicki a bracelet. I was completely shocked to hear Gretchen say under her breath that I was competing. Of all people, I thought she was my true friend. I didn't get the memo that it's OK for her and Tamra to make their jokes whenever they want, but Vicki and I cannot.
But come on! It's a little awkward that Tamra gave Gretchen a bracelet after two years of putting Gretchen through hell!! Was that Gretchen's hazing gift?
At the end of the night when Heather told Terry that he wasn't scoring any bedroom points, I was teasing her when I reminded her that she doesn't talk about those things. Those were her words. No one should really care if she does or doesn't talk about those things!
Tamra getting all huffy and saying that I'm trying to take credit for her and Gretchen getting back together is pretty unbelievable. If Tamra is going to make accusations that I'm jealous of Gretchen and Tamra becoming friends, I will comment back. And how quickly Tamra forgets that two years ago I did try to get those two to move past their fight. I don't need credit for that. That's just Tamra looking for drama once again, but she won't get it from me, because I'll just keep being happy for her and wishing her well, and that just kills her.
Alexis, I am not buying your excuses. You seemed totally jealous of Heather and that is why you lashed out. Stop lying to yourself and your fans so that you can look inside yourself and see why you behave this way. Perhaps all this bad behavior stems from insecurity, which is something you can work to fix. I hope you can see the light before it affects more friendships.
Alexis, just be yourself. Don't try to keep up with the girls' (funny, they all look like grown women to me) potty talk, don't try to correct it. Ignore the trashing and bashing. Rise above it. You're right to wonder what's up with Tamra. The look in her eyes scares me -- she vibes like a classic narcissist -- so stay away from her. Let Gretchen learn her own lessons, which she will. As for Jim, he's wise to avoid this toxic bunch. Don't let their digs get under your skin. Rise above it and be the sweet, loving woman you're supposed to be. Live your life, love the Lord, love your family, let go of resentments, and remember that St. Augustine said: "Never use the truth to wound."
You are my favorite! I feel the same about Tamra, just be nice and she can't stand it! Keep strong and trust in the Lord!! :)
Alexis, You're the mean girl this year. You want the show to showcase You! You! You! it's not about You! I commend Tamara trying to make amends to Gretchen. I'm sure it wasn't easy for either of them considering this history...but that goes to show you Christian Child, that those two showed great maturity towards one another. Let's face it, Tamara was right on the head, Heather is everything you want to be but are not! She is a graceful and beautiful woman. You are not!
Oh Alexis! You're so hypocritical. At first you talk about the lesson your mother taught you about not saying anything at all if you don't have anything positive to say. Then you continue to chime in about other people, saying Tamara is trying to start drama. You say you never thought Heather was pretentious, but said those very words in your last blog.
Dear Alexis, Say this over and over until it sinks in (if ever): If you can't say anything nice about someone or something, don't say anything. Are you so insecure in yourself that you find it necessary to bash everyone, to act rudely? It's too bad you drove Peggy out of the group, at least she is interesting. You are just fake and not the person you say you are.
You are supper cute, and I like your approach on situations. Yes, Peggy is a piece of work, she defines herself as classy and more important yet she has emotional issues up the YING YANG..... Imagine that, hmmmmm, obviously her marriage is not as GRAND as she likes to think. Lets face it you are beautiful, sometimes your comments confuse me, yet you are not malicious in any way. Hang in there, stay classy and guess what Tamra is a WINCH!
I find it hard to watch you on this show - this year and last. You are so competitive and your "me, me, me" attitude leaves me with a bad taste. It also leads me to think that you must be terribly insecure. To blog so much about the other friendships on the show and struggles therein when you just shut down a relationship with Peggy is truly hypocritcal. Your husband failed to tell you about his previous relationship with Peggy and it was not Peggy's place to advise you of that relationship. That was a tough spot for her to be in and, frankly, I am not sure how all of you carried on at any time as friends with that not being disclosed. I think if Peggy had told you about it, your response would have been the same or worse. Your jealousy towards Heather is obvious and unflattering. And please stop referring to yourself as a "Katie Keurig"--there is no comparison and it is insulting.
Alexis, I'm glad you can aknowledge your behavior of this episode. This behavior is what the viewers have seen from you for the past several seasons! Maybe now you understand where the negative backlash comes from. Now I'll address your blog. I highly doubt that it "kills" Tamra that you "continue to wish her well". I'm not sure you understand some of the things you say. When you were joking with Heather about things she "doesn't discuss", it wasn't said in a joking manner. You were being a patronizing bitch. When Gretchen said you were competing: are you really surprised? This is EVERYONE'S opinion of you. It's what you do. Either accept it, or change it, and move on. Remove stick from ass, THEN attend a party.
2 years ago you might have tried to get them back together, but on the show last night you said you had been trying for 2 years - major difference.
2 years ago you might have tried to get them to kiss and make-up, but that is a far cry from trying for 2 years.
I can totally see why Gretchen was upset over your bracelet comment to Vicki.... you were making fun of her....... duh......
alexis i get it .i think you were funny this third show of the season.you know some housewives can say any thing and get away with it.im sorry for what gretchen did.you go back and watch the other seasons you were there for her when no one els was.you tryed alot to get those 2 together.i like you and heather and vicki and sarah we have not seen much.gretchen i hope does not turn into tamra.wish t would go if there is a season 8.and bring back jenna.glad peggy left.i wish you would get your own show on some net work.you stay strong.you are confident witty so pretty.lex do not let t.take that away from you.she is insecure.we think the bellinos are good people.
Just when I was about to accept Alexis she goes and says something stupid, what was that "I already know all there is to know about plastic surgery" comment. Is she a plastic surgeon now, oh yeah, she got her degree in plastic surgery. He was being polite to the ladies and she was sizing him up instead of welcoming both of them. Just maybe finally Alexis and Jim have met their match and these two will show those two Christians how to act appropriately and show Christian kindness or even one of the fruit of the spirits that Christ says should be extended. This girl is a piece of cake.
You and Heather could be good friends, if you'd just stop being so snarky. And you want to socialize with people that are super wealthy and classy right? She's perfect.
You are certainly one to use the phrase "pot calling the kettle black". You act jealous and make jokes about Tamera making a kind gesture to Gretchen and then you say that you will keep being happy for her and wishing her well?!? You are so fake. Gretchen was right on the money when she said you were competing with her, because THAT is what you DO! Last season it was Peggy, you have already done it to her this season, and how you are doing it to Gretchen. Grow up Alexis! Practice what you preach and try to be a better Christian.
You had nothing to do with Tamra & Gretchen getting together...sorry you didn't ...And yeah, you do compete with everything & everybody! Nobody can say anything without you saying the same thing happen to you...and then it becomes your story....
Alexis,.. You are so inseure of yourself, it''s painful to watch you. You call yourself a Christian yet you never act like one.
Im Glad you called yourself out on the way you acted. Your jokes was not cute. I hope to see that this was just a one episode of bring the mean Girl. For some person I doubt it is.
Oh now that shade of Jealousy Green, does not look good on you. Take a breath and bring it down. Isn't one of the seven deadly sins envy?
I agree with you Alexis, Gretchen was totally sucking up to Tamra and not acting like a true friend. I never trusted her, she always looked at you like she didn't really like you. I dont think you owe that new girl an apology, she wasnt nice to you from the beginning and so you had your guard up to protect yourself. She is snobby and thinks she's better than everyone. I cant stand her. You are the only housewife worth watching. Stay true to yourself. I love your strong foundation in Christ. Take care girl!
Last season you made it very clear that you were done having children. This year in your blog you say you are pushing Jim to have another child (word to the wise, if you have to coerce him into it it's not a good idea). Don't know if it's a coincidence, but could you have changed your mind now that Heather's on the show with 4 children, including an adorable baby? Just saying...
i used to see a gap between your religious convictions and your behavior. but i am kind of following you this season. i see you as being pretty true to yourself, your husband and your family. i think you are pretty cool. you are also doing a great job of establishing yourself. jim should be proud.
Fellow Christian, I don't want to judge your behavior, but I do want to ask why you are being so mean to Heather... Stop it.
You are christian .... YES and also HUMAN !! I hope everyone gives you break and realizes that being a christian means you LOVE GOD and try your best NOT that you are perfect !! I commend you for calling yourself out !!!
Honey,Honey,Honey. I have to give you a hand in admitting you came off as an Total Air-Head in a LOT of the situations. Especially with Peggy it's the husband's place to be up front with you with the information of him dating Peggy in his past not her. In that way while your asking him those hard question's husband's don't or not willing to answer at the moment looking for a Hill or Rock because we KNOW our husband's better than some of them know themselves. Can't you tell by Now when a Lie is a Lie before it's said? I can with mine. Try being REAL with yourself 1st so it don't come off on the AIR as if you don't have a Clue what's going on with your surroundings. An anchor person honey you just have a 10min or so shot that's it. Your Hype is so Big you created to the point you believe it's true. REALLY honey REALLY well best of Luck to you. Glad Heather is on the show good move from BRAVO some of ya'll are getting boring. Guess who's at the top of the list Ummmmmmmmm Kao VaBch,Va
I don't always agree with you, but I'm liking you better this season.
Okay, the OC is not NYC, but there are good restaurants showcased in all seven seasons of this show. You're right....that was a snarky comment. Heather had better be careful. An OC chef or server might give her the chocolate pie treatment from The Help.
I laughed my head off when you made the bracelet comment, and Vicki leaving without hugging Tamra was good as well. Tamra and Gretchen were pushing Vicki's buttons, so why can't anyone give it back to them? Pot...Kettle...Black.
Your kids are adorable.
Alexis, I really have a tough time with you. I guess I expect more from you since you are a Christian. I'm sorry, but every time I watch you I think you are a mean girl. I felt so bad for Peggy and they way you treated her. It seems like forgiveness is hard for you . You should try hard to stop judging everyone around you and being more loving...just sayin.
I just love Gretchen shes real and confident! Heather is rich, fabulous, classy, and shes real and shes everything Alexis wants to be and is not lol. i use to like alexis, now i am seeing a side of her and its changing my perspective. I know Heather isn't a Christian but she acts more like one than Alexis.
I cannot believe I'm saying this but you're spot on with almost everything. I will admit I have always been team Tamra & Vicki but the whole pushing Vicki's buttons at the painting party was very hypocritical since Tamra flipped out the night before over something so harmless.
The one thing I DONT disagree with is that Tamra hurt Gretchen in the past. The stuff Tamra talked about was proven with pictures. Gretchen only hurt herself by being in denial and lying after the proof was shown. After watching this episode, it's becoming clear who's true colors are showing. I can't say I'm surprised because hello she's been with Slade for years!
Alexis, I find that you are TRULY YOU on camera, but now that you have realized you are not well liked, you blog that you didn't mean what we all watched! Simply put, your personality is as fake as your face and body! Why are you so obsessed with tamera? You claim to not care, but your blogs are 95% focused on tamera and now, heather. You real envious and it's appalling!
Alexis, When you joined the group, you did not receive the warmest of welcomes from vicky, for the same reasons. Insecurity and feeling threatened. She criticized your self confidence. You've done plenty of bragging about yourself in the previous season, your extensions, etc., your fashion sense. So, why should it bother you that someone is confident of their own gifts. You say you excuse yoruself or try to change the subject if a conversation is uncomfortable. It seems Heather was doing the same thing. She has high standards for her OWN behavior and doesn't need to dumb herself down to get along with the group. She knows how to handle herself, I doubt that her husband is telling her how to behave. She's picky and knows what she wants, but was never rude to any of you. When you wanted your design a certain way, you didn't hesitate to take the scissors to a dress. If you can be honest with yourself at least about your envy and feeling threatened by someone you might actually admire, you might relax and cut out the digs and criticism.
I just can't stand the thought of watching you another season. You are just not a fit, not even after all of this time. I still can't believe any morning news show, would have you on weekly. You looked silly and were not natural at it. You are my least favorite of all Housewives. Did I hear you say that you were an anchor? That is just too funny. What are you an anchor of? Maybe you are, but I just thought you were in a small, irrelevant weekly segment. They should have kept Peggy and replaced you with Heather. She is beautiful and "is all that". You never have been or ever will be. Have you ever heard the saying "She knows not that she knows not"? Well, that pertains to you!
Alexis, It would be easy for me like many here to put you down or criticize you but I won't. Most people are getting all judgmental against you for being you. We watch RHWOC because we like the dynamic of each of you ladies. Take the criticism with a grain of salt. If ya'll all acted the exact same the show would be boring as hell. I love each lady and have no favs. Keep being Alexis don't change anything.
Alexis I don't see what all the fuss is all about towards everybody feelings towards you. You are a pretty girl just trying to make it thru this show with all the other ladies. Tamara is the one causing trouble for you by putting her bad thoughts about you in Heather's head before you even met her. I agree with the other viewer on here who said rock on Alexis.
Heather was NOT making a bedroom comment when she told her hubby he was not scoring points in the room! She was talking about the room full of women (the one that you were in!) That was explained to you after your comment to her and lo and behold, you STILL do not get it! Plus, I about fell out of my chair when I saw you tell Heather you are a news anchor. Uh, let me guess, you look up to Katie Keurig - the coffeepot!
I have never seen anyone whose words and actions differ so much. If Alexis is a real Christian, she shouldn't have to keep reminding people with her words, her actions should do that. The little bit I have seen of her in no way reflects the actions of a Christian woman. Please don't talk the talk until you are reafy to walk the walk.
Remember you are a child of the most High God. Be an example for Christ which to love one another. Pray for your co-stars instead fighting and envying them. I am only saying this becuase when you first came on the show you talked about your faith of being a christain. The filming is over so take time and reflect on how you should be true to your faith in God. Walk in love!
How can you start your blog off with 'if you don't have something nice to say...." and then go on to trash everyone? What a hypocrite! You seem to pull out the Christian card whenever it is convenient to you but you you hardly act like a Christian.
How can you start off your blog saying "if you don't have something nice to say......" and then go to trash everyone? What a hypocrite! You seem to pull out the Christian card whenver it is convenient for you but your actions are hardly Christian like.
Alexis, I am just waiting for your face to turn green (with envy) towards Heather. She may be Jewish, but she acts more of a Christian than YOU. Your behavior and words show you are clearly jealous and in competition with her. As a Christian, we are to accept other and not be envious of what other people have. YOU were the one who took scissors last season and cut up a dress. Everyone can see the look of hurt and disappointment in your designer's work. Did we ever hear an apology? NO! I am sure many people would have loved the dress the way it was. Instead of trying to look prim and proper, you should have been monitoring the work of your designers. Also, that dress was from a professional's opinion/creation. Did YOU ever go to school for fashion design? You are trying too hard to do things you are not experienced in. Between the news job (what is your professional title anyway?) and design work - I just don't know about you. You are definitely a mystery. BTW, you looked so much prettier and natural in the photo of you holding your twins. Now, you are all made up and it is sad how you continuously alter your looks. You and Jim may believe you have aesthetic beauty but your inner beauty is lacking.
