I’d like to say I’m tired of Alexis saying I am picking on her. The nature of this show is to say what you are thinking and how you feel about the other ladies . It’s what is expected.Everyone on the show does this. When we first met , Aleixs didn’t know me at all and yet she trashed me. She called me pretentious , made fun of my career, and the fact that I have a brain. This is catty and not empowering of women at all. I am now reacting to all of that. Yes, I agree, calling her dumb was not very kind. Very childish on my part. Although she does hang herself out there for it, I am sorry for those kinds of remarks.
My personality is I call it like I see it. The moment anyone calls Alexis out on her behavior, she plays victim. I have said from the start that I am trying to figure her out — she can be sweet and fun, and then she says other things and acts in a way I don’t condone. It’s phony. All of the ladies see it and are commenting on it as well. At some point, if everyone says you are dead, LIE DOWN!
It’s important that I address one recurring question right out the door: people keep asking why we all have harsh things to say about one another all the time on the show, and I completely agree because I know it is draining on all of us ladies. However please remember this show is about having an opinion about the others — good, bad, or ugly. We might all deliver that information differently but at the end of the day, if we choose to be a part of this show we have to have an opinion.
OK, so forgive me in advance for this long rant, but since a lot of you have asked questions about this situation with Alexis I will address all the questions here. First off, no matter what, I am sorry that I hurt Alexis’ feelings because that was never my intention. I will explain my true intentions here. First of all I must say I think Alexis is beyond super sensitive to anything I say or do anymore because of my newfound friendship with Tamra. She claims in this episode that before I was friends with Tamra I would have been a lot more supportive of her, but the truth is Alexis’ own insecurities have caused her to change her thoughts towards me. Before I was friends with Tamra, Alexis wouldn’t have ever questioned my intentions with these kinds of things or be so sensitive. I am confident that I have remained the same person because my past record proves that I have always been honest and straightforward with her and all my friends, even if they won’t like what I have to say. It’s just who I am. I refuse to be fake.
SARAH WINCHESTER… This is Sarah’s ENTIRE blog:
Vivaaaaa Las Vegas!!!
I was so excited to join everyone in Las Vegas to watch Gretchen’s performance with The Pussycat Dolls. Even though I was going to be a day late and a fiance short getting there. . . I would be there!
Gretchen will always have my love and support in anything that she does. I am so happy for her and couldn’t wait to be there to cheer her on! All of the personal issues that I was going through with my fiancé at the time made the whole idea of a fun, quick, little, weekend getaway to Las Vegas with a few of my closest friends sound better than ever! Regardless of the high potential for there being some kind of unnecessary drama at some point — I wouldn’t miss this for the world. Take into consideration that this was the very first time that the entire group would be together all in the same place at the same time and in Sin City of all places. . . My gosh, it was honestly hard for me to fathom that I really was the only one around here that thought that this may not be the best idea in the world after everything that has happened recently.
On a more positive note, I was really hoping that with all girls being out of their element and in more of a fun,exciting environment like Vegas for the weekend it might just be the perfect way to distract everyone from all of the unnecessary cattiness between each other so that we could all just somehow manage to get along for the weekend, especially for Gretchen’s sake. This was her big day. . .we can all be adults can’t we? But just to be on the safe side I will be keeping my fingers crossed. Good luck Gretchen!
On Alexass: ”I texted Alexis to see where she was and what was taking her so long and she told me what had happened with her make-up. She said her face was close to a grayish/black color and that she had to wash it and start all over again. I didn’t understand how that could have happened, but after watching the episode this week there was NO WAY she could have come down looking like she did.”
On Wretched: ”Heading out to Vegas, I was in the mindset that I’d rather be platonic then to have this anger festering between us. Obviously she felt different than me and wanted to continue this bickering back and forth by not apologizing back. I feel she and Slade want to focus the negative towards me to mask his issues. I didn’t nor do I ever want to fight with either one of them. I decided years ago that Slade’s support orders are none of my business, nor do I want to be involved in them. Gretchen is the one this year that decided to reopen that wound, for whatever reason. My dad always told me that “the cream always rises to the top,” and if she can’t apologize for her actions then that’s her choice. I know at the end of the day, an apology goes a long way, and I was very sincere with mine. Looking back, I don’t know what I would have done different at Bunko, but I know I shouldn’t have yelled at her the way I did. Hindsight, I probably should have just walked out and not even given it “life.”
ALEXIS BELLINO: NOTE: Alexass is finding out how WRETCHED Wretched really is!!
I was so excited to have Gretchen over to see my Fox Five segment! I thought she would be the perfect person to ask because she would give me honest advice, and be very excited for me. However, when she claimed Fox Five had asked her first to do my correspondent position, I felt she was trying to steal my thunder. NOTE: YAY! Alexass knows the difference between a news “anchor” and a “correspondent!”
Of course, the minute Gretchen left my home I called my Fox Five producer to confirm if this was true, and she said it was absolutely not true. They were only asking Gretchen to do one segment as a co-host with me, and had no plans ever of giving Gretchen her own correspondent position. It was like Gretchen had to say that to make herself feel better because she couldn’t be truly happy for my success. Beside that fact, I have had similar things happen where I have been asked to host an appearance and I had to say no because I was already booked, then Gretchen would end up doing it and I never once felt I should call her and tell her that. What for? What good does it do? It’s a slap in the face, and not very supportive. If you live by the golden rule, you try to imagine how something would make you feel before you say it. Well, now I know firsthand how it feels and why I was right to never tell Gretchen when she was chosen second for that particular event — I was being a good friend.
The truth is, I have felt a disconnect with Gretchen that started months ago. I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what it was, but now watching all of the episodes thus far, I can see I wasn’t imagining it. The saddest part is that it only gets worse throughout the upcoming episodes. There are several things that confirm my premonitions. In an upcoming episode, something occurs between Gretchen and I (It’s “Gretchen and ME” not “Gretchen and I”… when will these Housewives EVER learn the very simple correct usage of “ME” and “I?”) that absolutely crushes me, and I know you will all see the true colors of all the women by the end of the season. There is an accumulation of several things that are very eye opening.
