Such a Rush

Alexis' welcomes you back to the O.C. and discusses the perils of live television and Peggy.

Hi again! I'm not sure if you all are ready for this, but put your seat belts on because it is going to be a bumpy ride! LOL! I hope you all have been well, and are ready for the excitement again. I think I am!

The scene with Vicki and Michael was cute. It's so typical of a mom/son scene. And I loved the last line, "Mom, Don't be annoying!" I will too soon be hearing those words I'm sure!

For the most part, I think Episode 1 remained calm. I mean, you have to get caught up on what all of us are doing, right? Uh-um, well, maybe it wasn't so boring since the two arch enemies seemed to make the peace! I have such mixed emotions about Gretchen and Tamra's little "love lunch." For starters, it seemed to all happen so quickly. There was no romance, no prelude. . .just BAM! OK, now we are friends. I mean a friendship bracelet with a lock and key? Really? As strange as it is that they have rekindled their friendship, I began this season actually glad they had! I thought, "Oh good, less tension now and for once maybe we can all get along." OK, OK, I couldn't be more wrong! LOL!


I was dying laughing at my morning getting ready for Fox 5. That truly is my morning routine on my Fox 5 Fridays! It's crazy busy, but I love it! I have it all down to a science now. . .the Friday morning routine is a breeze. And, by the way, Jim did answer the phone eventually, and the kiddos made it to school on time! I was stressing over nothing! I am so excited about my "Lifestyle Correspondent" position at Fox 5 San Diego! I visited Fox 5 last summer to discuss Alexis Couture and my other endeavors on their morning show, and two weeks later they asked me back to discuss fashion tips and "What's in my bag" for Opening Day at Del Mar Races. Then another two weeks later they asked me to come back and be a co-host for another fashion/beauty segment. Within a month, I had acquired the "Celebrity Lifestyle Correspondent" title, which is where I am today. It's so much fun and such a rush. I definitely have to step out of my comfort zone, and you all got to see first hand just what live TV means! If you goof up, there is no way to hide it! Even with such a heavy responsibility, I still find it extremely enticing and exciting!

The Peggy/Tamra conversation was totally vulgar (but what's new?) The only thing Peggy's embarrassed about is the fact that Jim dumped her. Why doesn't she just stop talking about him? He sure doesn't talk about her. And that's all I have to say about that.


Heather is introduced, and when I first met her I thought she was kind.

The bright pink skirt I was wearing at Vicki's party is from BCBG, because a lot of you were asking on Twitter!

We are launching my second line of Alexis Couture, as well as Alexis By Tal Sheyn dresses, and you will see them in the next week on my website! I have added two new hats to my Alexis hat line which you will see soon!

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
