Alexis has taken her mother's maiden name as her last name and now works as Dr. Somers. I don't want to be Dr. Macneill. I don't want to have any part of They even allowed a volunteer to sand off the words "Wife of martin" from Michele martin' We celebrate her every January 15th, balloons and cake.
