Alexis Bellino and her mother have a heart-to-heart on this EXCLUSIVE ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition’ preview they usually each open up in methods they by no means have earlier than.
Alexis Bellino and her mom, Penelope, have loads to get via with the intention to transfer ahead. The mom and daughter have a heart-to-heart and Penelope reveals a long-buried secret on this EXCLUSIVE preview of the Nov. 1 episode of Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition. “I do feel like I’ve had to be her mom,” Alexis tells her mom. “I feel like I’ve had to be a parent my whole life. I feel like I was an adult since I was 12.”
Penelope explains why she needed to be the form of mom that she was when Alexis was younger. “When I divorced, I wanted to keep us in the house that you guys were raised in and in the school where you were at,” Penelope says. “I wanted to keep that house and he wanted the money so I had to take a loan out, give him the money for the house, and I’m going back to college to get my degree so I can make a better living for you.” This is the primary time Alexis has heard any of this.
“I understand now,” Alexis admits after listening to her mother’s secret. “She did the best she could with the tools she had at the time,” Dr. Ish Major tells Alexis. Alexis will get that now. “I just needed the words,” Alexis says. After the heart-to-heart is over, Alexis walks over and hugs her mother. This is a serious step in the proper course for each Alexis and Penelope.
