Lea Black

After 18 years of marriage, The Real Housewives of Miami’s Lea Black has a trick or two up her hot pink sleeves.

"Many people ask what kind of toll my hectic lifestyle full of entrepreneurial ventures and planning for the Black’s Annual Gala takes on my marriage," the dubbed Mayor of Miami writes on Reality TV Magazine. The answer? "No matter what, I am a wife and a mother first and a hard-working mogul second."

Lea has been hitched to top criminal defense attorney Roy Black since 1994 and the power couple has one son. "It is all about priorities and for me nothing compares to the importance of taking care of my family!" says the Texas native. "I’ve even been known to pack up RJ to go be with my hubby during his traveling. This may not work for all families, but my point is don’t be afraid to do whatever it takes for your family."

And schedule a TV date night with your hubby now and then, too. "Roy, as busy as he is, even takes time to check out the Real Housewives. It’s great being able to have your life captured and at the very least we can laugh about it together!"
