Ep. 17 Honey, You Gotta Do The Work - Q+A w/ Alexis


For this week's episode, Alexis is solo and does a little Q&A for you guys! Alexis addresses questions from our listeners and covers topics like; surgery, shame, relapse, tattoos, spirituality, adventures with Tess, porn, and The Bling Ring—just to name a few.

Alexis has been diving into “A Course in Miracles”, and she encourages her fans to check it out. It’s 365 days of lessons that are so positively impactful. She’s also been into Ernest Holmes’, “The Science of Mind” for daily lessons to meditate on. It’s really about going back to basics, especially when you feel like life’s falling apart. Finally, check out an Audible meditation called “The Secret of Healing” with Deepak Chopra.

We think you’re going to love this candid conversation—here are two of our favorites.

We get right into it with the first question,

Q: “How many times a week do you have sex with your husband?”

A: It all depends on the season of life we’re both in. Sometimes it’s a couple times a week, sometimes once a week, and sometimes not at all.

We are grateful for our amazing communication, and credit these skills to Dr. Pat Allen, author of “Getting to ‘I Do’” and “Staying Married and Loving It.” We check in with each other, in and out of the bedroom.

Q: “If I could host a ladies’ dinner with any three women, dead or alive, who would I invite?”

A: First would be Michelle Obama. I love the Obamas, and feel that Michelle has so much knowledge and wisdom. I’d want to hear her parenting advice, and just advice in general. She is a woman in power, and is so driven and successful. And it looks like she’d give great hugs!

Second would have to be Angelina Jolie. There’s a joke from Pretty Wild that I only like her for her man, but that is not true! I just look up to her as a woman. She has overcome so much, seems like an incredible mother, and is so inspirational.

Third would be my grandma. She passed away when I was young, and I just miss her. She is so loving and kind; she’d be a great addition.

For anyone struggling, here’s a reminder: learn to be okay with being uncomfortable. If you are not okay with it, you’ll always look for an escape. “The moment I decided that checking out of life was more painful than checking in, I knew it was over for me. Substances are not the solution to any of my problems.”

P.S. here’s a little plug for Osea Malibu products! Alexis love all their products. Hopefully we can do a giveaway with their stuff really soon for you guys!
