Alexis Stewart On Oprah Tomorrow---infertility

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Some will remember the discussion awhile back on the radio show she hosts that addressed issues related to celiac disease.

It said on the TV today and on the Oprah web site ...that Ms Stewart is spending $28,000 a month to get pregnant. It said her mom, Martha wants to be a grandma............if i heard it correctly.

Just thought some might be interested in watching.

Lisa.

I tried to cut/past the Tuesday link from the Oprah web site to confirm but it wouldn't let me

I just went to www.Oprah.com. and looked at shows this week and it was there.

Verbally on the show today they said the Martha comment.

Time will tell.

There was a link on the same page the Dr Oz had tips on infertility but I didn't have time to ck it so don't know if he will be on. Didn't mention it.

Thanks Lisa

Is it just me, or does Alexis Stewart look like a very unattractive man in makeup? I think *that's* her problem. It's kind of hard to get pregnant when you can't find anyone to help you with the deed. :P

As per her idiotic, uneducated, and ignorant sounding comments re Celiac, I frankly am glad she cannot procreate.

Judy,

I did watch it. I thought she was rather bizarre and TOTALLY void of any emotion. Perhaps that HUGE box of drugs at a HUGE cost she takes daily has neurological effects on her. (I have never been in that position but) If she wants a baby THAT bad, adopt. I do not want to be insensitive to those with fertility problems.

I found her very strange and now can understand her ambivalence to the e-mails sent to her regarding her statements on her radio show about the "new fad diet".

So she is having trouble having a baby and is not under any emotions?

John had high dose chemo just 5 years ago and was told his chances are going to a lot slimmer now. He was 23 at the time and did not save a sperm sample. It makes us both emotional (I show it more than he does) to know we may not get that family we want. We do not have the money or meet a lot of the requirements to adopt either. Most adoption places require you to be over 35 and married for 5-7 years.

There are so many children out there that could use a family you think they would loosen the rules. There are so many people waiting out here that would make great parents and have a lot of love to give.

I just caught the end of the show but this is the same impression I got.

I saw the show--and you know what made me feel bad? The couple in the audience who have been trying to conceive for over 2 years, have mortgaged their home twice and were visibly overwhelmed by the whole thing.

It was in such sharp contrast to Alexis, who was so business-like about the whole thing and "oh-so-lucky" that the money wasn't a problem for her. <_<

I don't know her, or what's in her heart, but I felt for "normal" people in the same position who were watching. I don't know...her way is just not going to be a possibility for most, so why showcase? Maybe if I had seen just a hint that she was emotionally invested instead of just driven.

BTW, when she made her infamous Celiac remark, and was attempting to remove her foot from her mouth, didn't she say that she herself was gluten intolerant (or something to that effect) and that is why she couldn't conceive? If that's the case, it was interesting that she said on Oprah that she was in otherwise perfect health.....

Didn't watch it, was at the courthouse getting a marriage license. Was it very bad?

CONGRATULATIONS AMANTA--I KNEW THE TIME WAS GETTING CLOSE. FORGOT THE DATE FOR WEDDING AT THE SHORE........REMIND ME OK

THIS IS A VERY EMOTIONAL SUBJECT FOR ME ALSO.

WE WAITED TO HAVE KIDS AND THEN TRIED 10 YEARS AND HAD 2 MISCARRIAGES.

THEN WERE BLESSED WITH ONE SON.

I GUESS IT WAS HER COLDNESS THAT 'GOT' ME...........TOTAL DETACHMENT TO ANYONE OTHER THAN HERSELF

I TOO FELT SUCH SADDNESS WITH THE OTHER COUPLES WHO WERE DOING AND FELLING SO MUCH ...AGREE WITH PATTI.

THIS SHOW REALLY GAVE ME THE INSIGHT NEED TO UNSTAND HER CALOUS RESPONCES TO US ON HER RADIO SHOW AND TO OUR PERSONAL EMAILS RE CELIAC............SOME TRYING TO HELP TO HAVE HER LOOK AT THE CELIAC ISSUE.
