Alexis reflects on the rising heat in this episode and Tamra's comments.

Oh boy, I feel the water starting to boil in this episode!!!

The show begins with Gretchen and Slade discussing Slade's comedy career. It's obvious Gretchen is frustrated that Slade suddenly developed inspiration for a new career. I think it's similar to Gretchen suddenly starting a makeup line, isn't it? Gretchen didn't plan for that, or study for that. She had a desire, a dream to start a makeup line, and she acted on it. I applaud Slade for trying new things (although I don't agree with all of what he covered in his routine).

Next, Tamra and Heather met for lunch. Of course they spent a lot of the time bashing me. . .Boy, that's a real shocker! Tamra says she is having qualms about moving in with Eddie. She says she just can't move in with him -- well, duh!!! She's been divorced all of 12 seconds. And she has children that probably aren't ready for that yet!

When Tamra says she invited me to bunco as an act of good will towards Gretchen, I had to take that with a grain of salt the size of a basketball. Please spare me or Gretchen that lip service. I don't need an invitation of pity. Tamra and I do come from very different worlds, and the last thing I need from her world is a bunco party with phony friends; I have plenty of other places I could be with real friends.

What was I thinking when I said I was a news anchor? I completely goofed up! Yes, I do tend to speak too fast sometimes. I don't let my brain catch up with what my mouth is saying, but I don't want anyone to think that I think I am a news anchor; I know that people like Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, Walter Cronkite, and Brian Williams worked many years to get the prestigious title of news anchor, and I don't pretend to be in that league! Let me clarify that my role with Fox 5 news is: I am a Celebrity Lifestyle Correspondent, not a news anchor!
