“Don’t beat around the bush Alex say it. Because you’re not gonna like my response. Because we did talk about it. We talked about the whole thing,” says Richie.
“Over the phone,” she replies.
“Yeah, and what you said to me blew my mind. So if you wanna go into it Alex we can. Again, I’ve had to come to peace with this. I’ve thought about this a lot. I tried so hard to make our relationship work and …” he comes back.
They argue some more about who tried to make the relationship work, and who didn’t.
After more back and forth discussion around whose decision it was, it’s clear that Alex is upset at Richie for not being there with her, when she needed him the most.
“Yeah because you knew you couldn’t salvage it, because you knew that after what happened, when I was left alone, to go through something massive that no woman should go through,” Alex said.
“If you’re a man and you’re in that situation, you move mountains to be there for your partner,” she added.
It's no surprise Alex said she needed some 'Dutch courage' to confront her ex Richie.
The pair ended their conversation amicably, but some viewers took to Twitter to air their concerns over the subject matter and whether such a private conversation should have been shown at all.
Osher tweeted in response: “Both Richie & Alex were comfortable with the discussion going to air, and have access to mental health professionals before, during and after production.”
