A Little Miracle

Lina, babies, and scandal. Oh my! George covers it all.

Yes it happened exactly like that....I think it was the happiest and scariest moment I'd ever experienced. It happened I think like this, 'My first child on the way!!! WOW! Oh my God - My first child -S%#%!!!!' I think being the analytical type I really started thinking about everything we needed to do at the same time trying to figure out if I was having an out-of-body experience. Is my name George? Am I dreaming? As volatile as things between Lina and I are I really think its a miracle and I think she could be a great mom! Obviously we have our share of things to work on, and oh boy, could only imagine when the whole hormone thing really starts to take place.

So as you can imagine to find out that we were not having the child soon after, it was very emotional and sad for both of us. In addition to doubting her pregnancy I know a lot of you are going to say I dodged a bullet here. I really don't look at it that way.

In the last 4 episodes of Miami Social, Lina has come off as off the wall basically, and me being just as crazy for putting up with it (I've been called a wimp and she has been referred to as 'the devil'). The fact is you see what are the major points of drama, what you do miss is that Lina and I both are successful business owners that work 12-16 hours a day, 5-6 days a week (in fact it's quite common for her to work 20 hours a day+), and feel the same economic pressures as most of the country. Not to mention we are both in real estate and have probably felt even more than most industries. Lina started several businesses on her own and with her family since coming to the country only 7 years ago (not speaking the language or knowing anyone, with a few dollars in her pocket) and made a substantial name for herself accross many facets from interior design to real estate to emergency services. In addition, as a person she is very warm, affectionate, and believe it or not even NICE most of the time. We both are very good at pushing each others buttons, which is something we are both guilty of. However I think most of you can identify with that one guy or girl you dated (and maybe even ended up marrying) who you had more passion than anyone else, which also led to some of the worst arguments. Well welcome to mine!

Communication is key and that I believe that was our biggest short coming, but is something that can be worked on to develop more trust. I'm not trying to go out and convince everyone that Lina is perfect or that I'm perfect (or I'm no Angel, as Mrs. Lankina so eloquently stated in one of her blogs), because honestly I don't care what others think (which is the reason I signed up to do the show and opening up our lives )-it matters only what I feel. But I did feel it necessary to give a little bit of insight on Lina and her 'Story.'

Bottom line is everyone has their drama, some more than others. It has to do with the happiness that your partner brings you and ultimately being happy with yourself....this is a difficult relationship, but nothing good comes easy, and if it did I don't think it would be appreciated as much. This was an emotional time, I realize it may cause some uneasiness amongst people, but was pivotal in the relationship. I hope it made us both more mature and appreciative of each other and the things we have, even though neither of us take anything for granted....

I was just reading through all the comments that people were making in response to my blogs. I'm asked to take some time to comment on the episode weekly. I realize that every week I have found myself directly or indirectly defending myself and my relationship (this blog being no different). Dramatic realationships are great TV and kinda like a car wreck on the side of the road that you can't look away from. My intention in the last blog was to sincerely address what has taken place up to this point and specifically in the last episode: including why I've reacting to Lina the way I have, a bit more incite into what attracted me to her and my feelings put into words that may sometimes escape theTV screen.

I wanted to post this blog before the next episode because I never addressed viewers comments....maybe this is the medium, maybe not, but far be it for me to hold off for fear of additional criticism. I have read every single comment that was made since the frist episode aired. I would like to thank you for taking the time to comment with your opinions and real life experiences. Some comments speaking to unhealthy relationships they were in that mimic mine, some telling me to RUN and some actually saying love comes in all different packaging, that we should hang in. Quite honestly I pride myself on making my own judgement calls-and not letting people interfere in my life whether friend, foe or otherwise; but only an ignorant person ignores others input and past history altogether. In fact, I personally used a quote that someone included in their comment  - the definition of insanity.

I'm 33 years old and I realize I have still much to learn and experience. I also realize "you learn for a lifetime but live for the day," as my psuedo-adopted little sister Tiffany posted on her Facebook. After having a quick lunch with her where we both just started spouting off how rough its been to reach our monthly goals for our prospective business, I quickly realized what is really important. We both love making money but funny enough it went right into her talking about finding a good man that she would be interested in having a family with, and the difficulty she's had associated with this. Obviously playing the big bro-been there done that role, saying "Hang in there, you'll meet the right person." I wish everyone who's having a not so good day/week/year has at least someone who can bring a smile to them - and for that I have counted myself lucky....

-George "The Bleeding Heart" LOL!

A Hair Raising Season!

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

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…”

BEST CANDIDATE FOR A BEAUTY MAKEOVER

LINA: NO MORE WHITE EYELINER! PLEASE! IT’S KILLING ME!!! BEST USE OF SUB TITLES

Lina To George: “You’re going to be a Daddy!”

BEST NON-GUEST, GUEST APPEARANCE

Who the hell was Lina talking to on the phone at the end of the show? Her pimp? I am like so confused! And who the hell is Robert? Yet, another boyfriend? What?

BEST LINA INSULTS TO GEORGE

“Jesus, Uptight Ass!”

“You Don’t How to Be a Man!”

“Dick, Just Dick (DEEK)!”

“You’re my biggest hormone!”

BEST SHOES

Katrina! Show open where she is in that fabulous YSL pump and then she sports that Louboutin when she is showing that pervert Edmundo’s house. Side note: KATRINA please take Lina shoe shopping. I can’t stand the white patent leather shoes anymore!!! HELP US!!!!!

BEST MAKE-UP

Maria, simply because I love her pink Chanel lipstick. I was going to give this to Katrina but she goes overboard – like how is this girls face always done in the Miami heat? I don’t get it!!!

BEST DRESSED

Hardy, but who cares? Who the hell wears suits in Miami??? No seriously that whole James Bond thing was really genius, but I sweat, and not in that way, looking at him. Katrina could win on this one too – tell me how this girl always is decked out. Heels and a pencil skirt – love that scene on the boat.

BEST TEAR JERKER SCENE

When Maria dropped her daughter off at the airport! Then, when she was driving down the causeway, you could just feel Maria’s emotions.

BEST EX MOMENT

Oh my god, remember when Sorah was in the park with George? When she he’s explaining how he called Lina and the phone went into a French speaking country? Well, the look in Sorah’s eyes was so sad. She just looked at George and said, “I don’t think Lina has ever been honest to you and you two bring out the worst in each other.” That was harsh, uh, but true. Of course, the runner up would be when Ben says to Katrina, “ I can’t wait to get your sh*t out of the house.”

BEST-UNINVITED GUEST ME!

Who can forget when I show up with Maria at George’s party and Lina and I have a fight over Jasmine. That was genius. But Lina, herself is a runner up. I still can’t believe she shows up at Gonzalo's apartment while he and Sorah are cooking a romantic dinner!

BEST DOG

I really thought about this one, uh, for less than a minute. AUSTIN !!!!! Best shot of him all season was one I was on the phone with Sorah telling her about Diego and there was this shot of Austin and that cute little face!

BEST EYE ROLL

Hello, I win this. I mean, you remember me planning my birthday party? Afro’s? Blinking things, what????

BEST ‘HARDY PARTY’

Surprise, it was at “the Gans,” when Trixia arrived and grabbed Hardy’s face (like my Jewish grandmother did mine..) and asks, not once, but twice “you like my dress???”

BEST REFERENCE TO MADONNA

My reference was pretty good when I was with Katrina and I was starring at all those dam bracelets and said how “Lucky Star…” But loved when Ariel looks at Hardy’s friend and tells her she looks like Sandra Bernhard and that’s a compliment because she is a friend of Madonna’s! WHAT? FOOL!

BEST EXCUSE FOR NOT GETTING LAID

Katrina! “I’ve been with the same guy for 13-years…” WE GET IT GIRL!!!

BEST ALTER EGO

Oh dude, it’s a tie between “Straight Mike” and “Lina #2”

BEST BESTFRIEND MOMENT

There were a few here! Loved when Maria was holding my hand during BOTH my surgeries. Once, at Lasik and once during my Chia Pet surgery. But, hands down, in the finale when Katrina comes to my house after she signs those divorce papers that was heavy.

BEST USE OF A TEXT MESSAGE

George to Lina: “I’m getting all these text messages saying you had an abortion!” But, that may tie with George writing to Sorah because he needed her after the season finale blowout with Lina and she hits ignore!

BEST OUTFIT STOLEN FROM ‘NYC PREP”

Maria! OMG – who was going to school here you or Anjelika? That was too much the white preppy shirt, the tie and the hot pink lips. Runner up, and I hate having Maria and Lina in the same award, but it’s true, Lina #2 outfit, the plaid cheerleader dress and all….

BEST MOTHER INTERVENTION

I really thought about this one. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my Campins girls. But Momma Campins, she’s gotta let go of Ben. Then of course there is when George’s mom came to town… When she said, “I didn’t raise my son to be broken.” OUCH, that wins.

BEST USE OF A QUESTION

Lina, that girl asks the funniest questions. She created a tie! When in the season finale George asks his Mom what she thinks of Lina and his Mom is well, sort of dumbfounded. “What do you want your mom to say I’m a bitch?” asks Lina. UM YES! Then, I love when she asks George in Episode five, “What do you think I’m a liar?” UM, YES!!

BEST-PERVERTED MOMENT ON THE JOB

“LET ME SEE YOUR CRACK!”

EWWWW, Who was Ariel’s client? That god-awful underwear designer? I mean seriously. OMG, I felt so awful watching that scene. I actually felt badly for Ariel But least not forget, Katrina’s perverted client, Edmundo when Katrina “apologizes” for coming on a Saturday and he says with his wife around, “looking at you always makes me Saturday.” CREEPY.

BEST USE OF FAILING THIRD GRADE MATH

Ariel talking to me at the Gans: “Half the things you write about are 70% not true.”

BEST “WHATTTTTTT????’ MOMENT

Lina takes it again. I was so confused when Lina was laying in bed and tells George “they lost the baby…God didn’t want it for them.” WHAT? Weren’t you just telling your mom that you were going to head over to the clinic and take some pill? GIRL!

BEST “YOU HEARD ME MOMENT!”

Loved when Katrina was trying on those clothes created by another designer for Ariel’s fashion show. When he was going on and on about how fabulous the clothes were and I said: “Maybe you can pull that bullsh*t with Katrina, but don’t pull it with a Queen!”

BEST USE OF SMOKE AND MIRRORS

Hands down, Ariel’s show. Still, I can’t get over this. Didn’t it go something like this: Welcome to the fashion show – only thing is I didn’t actually design the clothes…

BEST MIAMI SOCIAL DEBATE

Me and Ariel going at it over Kim Kardashian. Remember, I call her a reality whore (I am one too, I get it and accept it) but he’s trying to convince me that she is better than that and she does a lot of charity work. I was like what is your point and that’s when I said, “You Can Still Be A Whore And Do A Lot of Good!”

Speaking of being a whore, I have a lot of things to do. I have to go raise funds for www.thestylelabonline.com. Thanks for all your support and watch those re-runs!!!!!
