INTENSE. EXHILARATING. REVEALING. The plot intensifies, depicting a clear correlation to my previous blog. Miami is something more than a congeries of individuals and social conveniences…Miami is somewhat of a state of mind, a body of ethnicity and traditions. Miami is spontaneous attitudes and genuine sentiments. Miami Social unmasks the artificial layers we wear as survivors in a merely physical mechanism.
Love is one of the most powerful energies of the planet and a vital process of the people that compose it. It is a product of nature, particularly of human nature. It is quite simple as love is innate yet some of us put so much focus on finding love and approval in the larger realm that we never develop it within ourselves.
In this episode we saw the many vulnerabilities people share and look for love in the external world, whether from our parents, partners, friends, new people we meet or those we admire. As humans, we are easily disappointed thus allowing devastation to take over. As the heat in the city intensifies we have a tendency to retrieve to our urban canopy characteristics. I have grown to care for all cast members as we share that common fiber that ties us all - the search for love. I am a firm believer that we can enjoy success and love without losing our soul.
hey Katrina I like the fact that your a woman who is independent and doesn't need a man to rely on. Yeah that's cool that you want to venture out in your career and everything but is it worth it ? Say couple years from now your married and have kids and you want to go out to a club. You can't do that anymore. On top of that if you still are working you can't have the same lifestyle you used to now. All I'm saying is you shouldn't have any regrets in life. You can't push the rewind button on life Katrina !
Katrina, Although I think the end of a marriage is sad it can also open the door to new opportunity. Ben is a cutie but that's where it ends. If you watch the episodes he treats you like you are beneath him and it's actually just the opposite. You obviously still have feeling for him but it appears he's been emotionally gone for some time now. To quote Dr. Phil "kick his sorry ass to the curb" and move on! You will, if you want, find someone that really appreciates you and will treat you as an equal with love and respect.
Sorry, this is not a comment for you but to the viewers who think you should stay "married". In reality, no one can tell you your divorce was a mistake. Perhaps, the viewers comment before mine were correct that you were waiting for Ben, but HELLO, it should be 50/50. Maybe Ben should come after a successful and beautiful woman who loved him...what a crime?! Perhaps, he should make her want to come home, instead of insulting her every chance he gets.
Katrina, beware of your friend that was all over Ben in front of your own eyes. She is not a true friend. I think Ben is a nice guy but its obvious he married to young and needs to explore what else is out there. If you would have met later on he would have realised what a prize you are. You will meet someone who deserves you more and you will be happier. Trust me I've been there.
I’ve been watching you since Apprentice days, I saw how you grew professional in the Real Estate Industry. You have inspired me to put my best foot forward giving everything 110%. We have similar characteristics I am originally from the Caribbean St. Croix but my family is mixed with Puetro Rican, Barbados and little touch of every spice in the Caribbean culture. I’m a newlywed of 2months but my husband and I have been in relation since we were high school freshman and senior so it’s been 12 years and counting. I consider myself a Phoenix rising from the ashes daily learning and acquiring new skills to advance my personal and professional skill sets. I would love to intern with you one day, but Im sure you have a lot of applicants overloading your inbox in life we all have dreams or aspiration but that doesn’t mean God has that our plan for life. Well, Katrina it been real seen you on Miami Social and chatting with you a little here on this blog you be blessed as always and continue to trust in the Lord and he will see you through.
Be Blessed Empress340
You are amazing. I love the way you speak with such class. I hope you can find a guy like Ben out there bc he seems pretty cool. Anyways, I cant wait for season 2. I would love to know what your work out routine is if you have any or are you naturally that thin? Love you Best wishes to you
Katrina, WOW! You are a GREAT ROLE MODEL to women all around the world. I do not see a problem with being a successful working women all the time. You are STRONG,INTELLEGENT,LOVING & HEADSTRONG! kEEP YOUR HEAD HELD UP HIGH! You have accomplished alot in your life. There is many people that would disagree with the idea of a WOMAN focusing just on there career, but hey thats just an opinion.
Congratulations Katrina you have now shown the world another Miami phenomena , the first CAP on world tv. For all of you out there that dont know what that is and they only live in Miami, these are CUBAN AMERICAN PRINCESS !
Hi Katrina, I see couples like you and Ben and George and Sorah give up too easily on marriage. There seems to be a lack or communication. While it's great to have a prosperous career and great friends, you also need someone to share it with. Life is too short. The divorce was a mistake. You go out and still consider yourself married. I think at this point, you were waiting for Ben to say he didn't want this. You know you still love him and you should have fought for your marriage and if that meant spending more time together then so be it. You should have made time for a family which gives a marriage more stability and an opportunity to grow even closer. I think you took the easy way out for the sake of your career. Yes you can have both, but not at the expense of one. You will be very sorry and it may be too late for Ben.
I LOVE HOW YOUR SUCH A STRONG WOMAN AND SHOW YOU CAN DO ANYTHING ON YOUR OWN. I WOULD LOVE TO MOVE TO MIAMI!!!
Hi katrina loved the show!! You are so perfect and stylish. can you tell how you keep your skin so perfect and pretty? hope you find a new love next season and girl slow down life is too short have fun not just work hard.
Hi Katrina you are one of my favorite people on the show, I was wondering what kind of dogs did you and your husband have, they looked like American Bulldogs and I have one myself. I saw how much you loved the dogs , My husband saw and said I knew I liked her!!
Dear Katrina, I'm not going to fill your head with compliments from what i've seen there's enought of that going around ,not that you don't deserve it, i just have a question what's with the ankle boot's ??? Your so hot !!!
Hi Katrina, You are such a class act-so sophisticated and stylish and soooo beautiful! I relate to your relationship with Michael, since I too am a gay man and have close bonds with woman, and it's hard to meet gay men! You and Dr. Epstein really seemed to have good chemistry??? Looking forward to seeing what happens next season! Eric in Los Angeles
Katrina, I love your unique style that makes you, you. You are a very strong independent woman that we all saw in the Apprentice and on Miami Social, but I wish we could see you "smell the roses" a little more. Your strong drive is very inspiring and envious since you are a woman on top of your game. You truly are a tripppppppple threat with brains, beauty and energy. BTW, thank you for showing the world a vulnerable side of you as you signed those divorce papers. It was a huge step and we appreciate it. I can only imagine how hard it was since I saw my lil sis go through the same. You proved to the world that even a beautiful woman that has it all, can sometimes have a weak moment. I hope to see you next season!!!!
Best wishes in your new life as a single women. Based on your intelligence, drive and beauty I am sure you will have no trouble finding someone better suited for you. Ben's loss is certainly Miami's gain!
I only hope your mom will offer you more support than criticism when it comes to your future relationships.
How could YOU sign those DIVORCE PAPERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO BACK TO BEN, CAN YOU SEE BEN WITH ANOTHER WOMAN????? WHAT ARE YOU THINKING I AM SO MAD AT YOU.............
Katrina.... I am SO SAD that you went ahead and signed the divorce papers. I was HOPING you could have both worked your problems out.
It's good you are both still very good friends, but it is still sad.
I wish you luck in your future and will miss you all.
Love the show! You should date Hardy. He's not sure about Trixia because they are not right for each other. He lights up when he sees you and it seems that the feeling is mutual. You guys should go for it! Life is too short.
First off I have to say, I love the show...it's so funny and entertaining. But, one thing that bothered me was when you were having the discussion with Michael about moving ...you stated that you liked your privacy??? Huh? I just found that too side splitting since you decided to be on a reality show and air your dirty laundry...good luck on your divorce and I'll watch for you next season.
I love katrina she's beautiful and sexy, miami social is the best reality show that I have ever seen, I am a reality show fan, that is what I always look for on tv. I am looking foward for the next season of miami social, that will have to be with the same cast. thank you very much.
Katrina, While I greatly admire your drive and ambition, I fear that you have lost sight of what is important in life. When you leave this Earth and look back on your missed opportunities, will the memory of your career keep you comforted? Obviously I know very little about your life and your marriage and I understand that it may not have been right for you. However, if you decided to end it for the reasons you mentioned, honestly I feel sad for you! You are a very smart woman and through the show I have grown to respect you and just hope that you have weighed these options carefully. Does your job make you so happy that you would rather be alone and on top of the world than with a family that loves you? I hope your ambition and drive doesn't take you into solitude. I'm only concerned...
That being said, I would like to say that I have really enjoyed watching a show full of educated and successful men and women! Being a college student on the brink of joining the working force, I found it to be refreshing and exciting! I hope there will be a season 2!
Being a successful lady is absolutely great. But owning all the beautiful things and being lonely = ........ (you fill in the blank). God forbid, if a bad thing strikes, that busy schedule won't be there for you, BELIEVE ME ! You are a charming lady. ENJOY LIFE IN A GOOD WAY and don't question the good things in your life too much. You will LOOSE THEM and you will cry your heart on the OLD good days. Best wishes
Besides being absolutely stunning, you have an amazing knack for success that has been earned with a ton of hard work. Of course nobody needs to give you advice on anything, but I just wonder if you're empty inside because of your Ben situation. I think you would enjoy life to the fullest when/if you ever have that special person to share your triumphs with. When I watch you on the show I'm not convinced that you do not long for him. Sorry....just my take on it. Good luck to you in all of your endeavors and I hope that you find your soulmate when you are ready or when you're ready to admit it to yourself and allow your heart to once again explore.
katrina........ you are beautiful and ben is gorgeous,its so sad to see how much u dedictated to ur job and would rather spend time with friends than ur husband, u gave him no respect whatsoever, money is not everything, u need a man in your life and not everyman will be like ben, im sure. some men would love to use u for ur goddies. u need to listen to ur mother (very wise woman) you should be happy u have a mother like that in ur life, even ur sis doesnt want to be like u. dnt listen to ppl tellin u that u dont need a man, honey u will always do and u need the one that really and truly cares.
I know that the show edits scnes. The viewers were pulling for you and Ben-hoping that you two will change your mind and get back together, and then, theres today's episode. Bravo dragged the episode of course, but there you go...signing the divorce papers. Your mom's heart was broken (at least that's what Bravo showed). Viewers were crushed as we really thought you two will make beautiful babies. Good luck to you both. I still hope you two will find each other again; if not, we wish you all the best.
I am sure you made your choice, but i hope love knocks your door again. I love your confidence and respect, but just please let your hair down and relax and do not let work take over your life. Let life shower its beauty around you gorgeous
cheers mate Battina
Katrina, you are my role model. Don't let anyone tell you being successful is a burden. As a student and a real estate major, I can only hope that I will be as successful as you. In a world where men dominate, it's refreshing to see a woman focus on their potential rather than their Friday night date. You are beautiful and amazing and I hope that women everywhere will gain as much inspiration from you as I have. Best Wishes, Rachel
LOVE it! Just watched the finale and I'm guessing it was dramatized just a bit for TV, but good for you for being brave enough to sign those papers and move on to the next chapter in life. I wish you nothing but success!
In episode 2 when you and Michael are at the dog park, you are wearing a black t shirt that I adore. I would like to know what kind it is and where you purchased it...if you don't mind sharing that info with me. Usually I can find something like this on my own but I have looked all over the net for that shirt and can't find it anywhere. Thx for your time, btw I'm a big fan.
I've been watching the show for awhile and I really wonder how you deal with the drama. It's all relationship drama, never business. Granted the show only shows one side of you, so when does the world see the other?
Of course your eye candy, but please, lets see who Katrina really is.
Katerina...you are amazing...and im sure a lot of women relate to you and your struggles with the whole love and work balancing act. Its nice to see a girl on a reality show working for her money...and not depending on a man for total support...you're awesome!
I have been a supporter since back in the Apprentice days! You are such a strong and independant woman I truly look up to you. However there is one aspect that concerns me regarding your situation with Ben. I can understand your need to be dedicated to your work, but what do you really want out of life... money?? Thats all that you would accomplish by working so hard. But what about working on your personal life? Do you really not see yourself as a wife or a mother in the future? It seems like you could have treated Ben with more respect and taken care of him too. You are so smart and business savy.. theres just no possible way you could balance your love too? It sad to see such a sweet and GORGEOUS man go to waste. You should definitely re evaluate your priorities. sad sad sad
Katrine I would like to tell you that you are fab and your friends are beautiful especially Micheal!!!!! Love the show
Katrina, keep doing what makes you happy - be true to yourself. I enjoy seeing a single young lady being successful and happy.
You are a wonderful person. I wish you would go back with your husband. He is such a wonderful guy and you two make such a lovely couple. The grass is NOT greener on the other side. You were with him for 13 yrs. Go back with him and work on the history you have together. You can make things MUCH better as it seems you can both talk things out. GOOD LUCK
You are totally fab! I love your style (especially the bracelets) and I admire your strength & confidence. You're truly an inspiration!
Hiiiiii!♥ I just wanted to say that you are very inspiring and i love watching you on the show! I used to be very independent before i got into a relationship with this guy i totally thought completed me, um it's hard trying to gain that strive of knowing that I can overcoming anything in life.. I can say watching the show and being exposed to the type of person you are reminds me of what I once wanted and still do want to be known as (the independent successful single lady who knows what she wants). Do you have any suggestions of how I can salvage being that determined lady.
It's obvious you are a survivor Katrina. I have also noticed the similarities between Lina and Ben in the "I want your attention please!" department relative to their relationships with George and yourself respectively. Unless you can learn how to authentically trust others and subsequently develop authentic emotional intimacy in your primary love relationship...you're going to be pretty much "stuck" living the life of a single woman. And maybe you want that deep down (?) I don't know. Good luck to you anyway.
Love the braclets too! You need to send me a case of those crystals, need to refresh the positive power!
Your doing a great job on the show! I'm very proud of you !!!!
I do not know why some people think a woman has to have a man to be complete. I think you should take your time and enjoy being single. You might actually like it! YOu are your own woman and I admire you for that. I always taught my daughters to make sure they can take care of themselves. I never want them to be stuck in a relationship because they need that person to take care of them. I told them work hard and do what they enjoy doing. It seems you are in that stage of your life and I say Go For It. Heck I think its cool to be able to date when you feel like it and not have to put up with whomever. I mean you can say C YA! Don't call me.... I'll call you! :-)
Katrina, I have a lot in common with you. I am about the same age as you, we have the same goals in live. I know you say the divorce is no big deal. I feel that you are putting on a brave front but you have to be scared? I have been married for 19 years 8/22/09, we have been together almost 22 years. I thought he was the one, my true love the one I would die with out. I believe this for many years, I also loved work it was nothing to work 60 plus hours a week. Then one day I found the love of my life, a love that makes your soul sing. His name is Allen and he is my eight year old son, I never knew what true love was til I met my son. I almost missed it, you see I had cervical Cancer. If not for getting pregant I would be dead, we tried for 12 years to get pregant 3 miscarriages and we gave up.Now we have the greatest love of all time. I agree you know what is best for you, but dont close all doors because one day you will have to retire, having children and grandchildren isnt a bad ideal. Work is great but life is not meant to work and not enjoy life. Good luck.
caught him messing around on me for the fourth, five time, I lost count. I was so young when we got together I knew nothing else, I was scared so I settled.
