3. Does Alexis really design and make every dress 100% by herself?
Does she do the sketches? Does she sew each stich? Does she add every piece of gratuitous sequin? I donâ€™t think she does, guys. So when Alexis (who couldnâ€™t even correctly define the word â€ścoutureâ€ť) claims that her dress line is 100% done by her, I spit up a little bit of my Diet Coke. Youâ€™re kidding me, right? Why would she even make that claim?! Youâ€™re the next Katie Keurig, Alexis, you donâ€™t need to be behind a sewing machine! (I will never get sick of that/Stop using it as a joke in these posts).
4. Is Gretchenâ€™s voicemail for real?
Gretchenâ€™s voicemail talks about how she is super hard to get a hold of and that if you really need to get a hold of her, you should call Slade. Ewwww. What? Talk about a co-dependent relationship! If I ever had that as my voicemail message, my friends would leave me messages like, â€śUmâ€¦no, you idiot. This is a message for you and only you. Stop being a weirdo and answer your phone. Iâ€™m not going to youâ€™re your boyfriend.â€ť Weâ€™re a tough love kind of bunch like that. Basically, I cannot deal with Gretchenâ€™s voicemail directing people who want to talk to her to call her boyfriend. Iâ€™m saddened by this for so many reasons.
Â 5. Is couples therapy productive for people who arenâ€™t married?
Â Iâ€™m really skeptical about therapy in general. Iâ€™m not going to knock it down and say itâ€™s a crock because everyone copes with things in their own way. I think that personal one-on-one sessions with a trained professional can be greatly beneficial for someone who is dealing with emotional distress. When it comes to couples therapy, I feel like I have a different spin. I understand why people who are married seek counseling. They are married. They are bound together by law and vows and commitment. I just think that people who are just boyfriend/girlfriend shouldnâ€™t be going to therapy sessions together unless there was a huge tragedy or something. (See: Catelyn and Tyler from Teen Mom) I donâ€™t think Sladeâ€™s financial issues count, but thatâ€™s just me.
Â 6. Are you Team Alexis or Team Tamra?
Tamra is such a mean girl. I think that if Tamra was in my circle of â€śfriendsâ€ť, I would be terrified of her. She really great with her words and quick comebacks, and sometimes she is brutally honest. She also had mean eyes. Does that make sense? I feel like her eyes could shoot out fire and burn me to a crisp. When it comes to Alexis, I feel so bad for her. She is a little slower with the comebacks, and seems so much softer than the other women. Sheâ€™s a Midwestern girl (represent), and I feel like she has a bit of a kinder side that the other women donâ€™t possess because of too many years of living in that California sun. Tamra keeps saying that Alexis is â€śfakeâ€ť and â€śshallowâ€ť and â€śstupidâ€ť, but I just donâ€™t see it. Is it jealousy? Is it just a clash of personalities? It looks like in the next episode that Alexis gets completely ambushed and attacked by all the other women, and I am NOT okay with this. Andy Cohen! Step in and save my poor Alexis!
