Michael takes you inside the best of the best with his very own Miami Social Awards!

Aug 17, 20090

WTF FANS??? DID WE NOT BRING THE HEAT BITCHES OR WHAT? I was burning up after watching that. Actually, I was almost ready to cry. That was sort of an emotional experience for me and all of us ‘socials.’ Our lives, just unfolded, just like that. But I’m not going to sit here (like I suspect Katrina or Maria may) and make you read all these life lessons to pick up from Miami Social. I’m here to have fun. With that said, here is my very own Miami Social Awards:

BEST OUCH! MOMENT

MY hair! I know you are wondering why I did it! I just felt like having more hair. Did it hurt? I don’t know! I was uh; a little shall we say, high? Anyway, it was just one of those little self improvement things like going to the gym or seeing my shrink but hello that out tops any surgeries I have ever seen on Bravo!

BEST A*SHOLE INTERVENTION

Katrina and Hardy trying to knock some sense into Ariel. Things didn’t go as planned – as Katrina called it an “uphill battle.” I just loved when Ariel channels Madonna with that British accent thing: “Some people think I’m obnoxious when they first meet me…”

Shalom Michael,

I've just finished watching one of the Miami Social episodes and I felt the urge to write you. I must say I’m not much of a reality shows person but you caught my eye while I was minding my own business. First of all, I feel so strongly, like you do, when it comes to the gay scene. It is one huge disgusting meat market! The way I see it nothing good can come out of it. What I’m trying to say is that you’re definitely one of kind! It’s so nice to see You’re not sucked into this fake world and you have your own standards for quality. When you and Maria had this conversation about how to get/keep a man, she gave the best advice a friend could ever give you. Just be yourself. The rest will follow. You have so much to offer I wish I had a BF like you. You are smart, witty, funny, have a great smile and above all that.. a human being. Ohh and one last thing, I know your hair is a sensitive issue for you but just between us (and everyone else who reads this blog :) I LOVE IT. With or without your hair, you are still the same Michael everybody loves to love. I want you to remember that.. always! Kisses from Israel,

Doron

Be still my heart, dear Michael! If I was a gay man...I'd be all over you like pink on champagne! Have you ever thought of writing a book with all of your fabulousness spelling out life for those of us less fortunate? Love the show and adore you. If you ever decide that you want to be straight, look me up!

Wanted to let you know Michael that you are top dog on my list. My daughter and I just reinacted your quote when you accidentlly spilled your wine on yourself and went from your straight name "Mike" to back to Michael. So very funny. You are a very good person and deserve the best.

ooooo one more thing the best advice on the show came from your hair plug doctor...Here's an amzingly hot, intelligent, engaging, gentle, authentic, successful human being who basically said that as long as you stay singularly focused on your exterior, your facade and image...you will not know true love....pay attention, Michael...u r loveable now, balding, 37, without the perfect body or the best face or biggest bank account...just as u r, loving and being grateful for what we do have is attractive...wishing we are something we're r not, being unappreciative for all we r blessed with is not.....Do u, be the love that you are, love and be loved........

Michael u r a sweetheart soooo loving....I miss Miami Beach I lived there the first year the News Cafe open ia a $350 apt in the building that would become Versace's Casa...yup they were great unique apts all over looking theis mediterranean courtyard. But those were some bloody days....We really did party like Al Pacino & Co. Now with a clear head and full heart....I love life and back in NYC trying to figure out how to get back to the Beach!!!!!!!!!! Ok I know u tell it like it is even if u don't want to, so when is someone going to tell Hardy he and his "girl" are a mismatch.....and he needs to let her go cause she's the one who's going to breakdown when it does inevitably end, and he will find his soul and brain mate xoxox

michael....you are the BEST... during every episode you became everyone's favorite without a doubt. I loved the show because it was done with such style, and also had so many flavors which would have been apealing to just about anyone. I loved the ending, so different from your typical reality show endings. Your gay Michael, straight Michael was my favorite line of yours. I wish I had a friend like you. You were waiting there for Katrina....how sweet. Can't wait for season 2. Take care and I hope all of you find happiness during your time off. Love......

Michael, I just love the show and my favorite part is when you and Katrina are together. She is gorgeous and you are hot - boy I love to see you both hanging out - I think when they made you they broke the mold. You are funny, confident and keeping everyone entertained. You don't need the hair baby because you are great just the way you are!

OMG,

I think you are the coolest person. But I have to say, I have been thinking about you not having that special one..I don't know your taste, but I think you and Dwight from The Real Atlanta Housewives, would be great.

But he may be to Diva..

Just think during the off season, you two could do a show together, and see how it turns out.

Well Michael, as much as we all loved George (in terms of the texting "fiasco" in the finale) I can’t blame Sorah for hitting the "F-U" when that text came in. As person you can only allow someone to hurt you so much and there needs to come a time when you sever the ties and call it quits. From Sorahs side of the spectrum she did not want George to jeopardize her relationship with Gonzalo. Well socialites I’ll see you next season!

Debbie

Michael... Well done you! I must admit that I didn't think you came across very well in the early episodes. However, as the show progressed I found myself liking you more and more. Consider yourself the winner of the "Miami Socialite I'd Most Like to Hang Out With" Award. You are funny, kind, and manage to "tell it like it is" without offending. I have no doubt that you will find love, but you can't cross that bridge without a few alligators snapping at your toes (Diego). I hope to see you in Season 2. Season 1 was over before it barely started.

Michael- I love you!!! You are amazing and so funny- but you are a wrong when you say Kim Kardashian is a reality TV whore- you are on a reality television show too! Sorry Mike- don't be so judgmental.

Michael,

I would you love to hang out with you when I visit SOFL as you are gem and appear to be wonderful and trustworthy friend. I have a sister you resides in SOFL and the men there appear to be extremely pretentious. I am looking for Mr. Right as well and a class act is so hard to find. I will qoute you "He opens his mouth a shoe falls out and it's not PRADA".. The best line ever Micheal you rock.......

Left Coast Dave

Considering you are about as far south on the Right Coast as one can get before leaving the US (I'm almost as far south as one can get without leaving the US on the Left Coast - San Diego) all I can say is I so wish you lived in San Diego. You are such an amazing individual: handsome, fun, caring, intelligent, and NON-SLUTTY! etc.... There are so few individuals like you out there; I just hope you aren't the last one.

I wish you the very best!

Michael, I feel your dating pain. If you want something real, its so tough in a place where outer beauty is more valued than inner strength and integrity. I applaud your decision to take the high road and focusing on positive improvements within yourself. I love the show and look forward to seeing more soon.

I have fallen in love with you! lol. Seriously, you represent qualities that I so look for in someone and I just love your personality. Im 38, gay latino in Chicago and I have had my share of failed romances. Its been a while since I have had a serious relationship and I decided to just give myself some time to focus on improving me both physically and mentally. The scene is so full of guys looking down at me just because I dont have the 6 pack abs or the most expensive fashion, they just live for the clubs and the one night stands and just watching you on the show reminds me that there are still some good, down to earth guys out there. I think you are very attractive and the hair issue, doesnt bother me a bit.. you are a great guy!!! Much love and hope there will be a second season... muahhh

Hi Michael. I think of all the reality shows including the Housewives series, you have outdone them all. You are my absolute favorite to the show. You bring a true realism to the show that says true friends can voice their opinions or indifferences to things or issues and at the end of the day still remain friends. You a like a breath of fresh air. You say what you mean and mean what you say. To speak up for yourslef. You're very comfortable in your own skin and I just love you. I think you're adorable and any man or woman would be glad to have you as a friend. You remind me of NeNe of the the Atlanta ladies. She keeps it real even while seeing the humor in things. Life doesn't have to be so serious all of the time. I love you because you find something laughter and joy in each day. You realize that we only get one shot at this thing called life and you take advantage of it everyday and it works. I wish you all the best in finding your life partner. Always, LOL.

Micheal, thanks for being on the show you are so real and a true friend, Just for being real you have been a real person and hope all the process of the hair gets great because you are already a total package. By the way can you tell me how it feels the week after the laser (eye) thing, I have been playing with the idea but it scares the crap out of me; so in the meantime I just use my daily disposable contacts. You are a great character and deserve the best hope you find your soulmate and live a great life with him YOU FREAKING DESERVE IT!

Michael/Mike--From a str8 guy point of view I love looking at Katrina but I truly enjoy watching all your scenes because w/u watching is learning. For a while there I wasn't sure about liking Ariel but I just knew there had to be something there just because you liked him and then boom he puts that a*hole designer in his creepy place. Good for Ariel! He's now on my good side. Hope to see you guys next season. WTF is George thinking? It's time to ditch the B. Kat is right bout Hardy "if it's taken 6 yrs to decide she's the one she's probably not." Best of luck w/the new do.
