Maria tells you what to expect this season on Miami Social!

I keep re-watching the first episode and it still had not worn itself out on me in its visual extravagance, juiciness and amount of amazing characters on one square of the TV screen.

I love re-watching the scenes with Michael. We have a synergy between us like only really good friends would! He makes me feel naughty - thank God he is gay!!! It makes me miss my time with my best friends in London, Prague, Lugano, New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Saint Petersburg.

I am glad viewers had a chance to see me working, doing my thing. Several people approached me in the local Wild Oats with surprised look on their faces: "Oh my God i had no idea you had a job!" So often we hang labels on people (guilty as charged) and Miami is full of blonds with large breasts (albeit not all natural like me ) with questionable day jobs :). It's all about pro choice and believing you can change your life and go for it without doubts.

I am proud of the things I have achieved in life and I am REALLY lucky to have had an opportunity to meet amazing people on my life path, friends that were a tremendous help and inspiration for me. I've come a long way from Saint-Petersburg, Russia where my whole family moved into one room in a three room communal apartment living when I was 5 and mom brought all her family from an old Russian town so her kids would grow up surrounded by culture, theaters and beautiful architecture. And no I am not talking about the show itself as a huge achievement. I had experience surviving on my own with no friends, family or any kind of support system in a country with foreign language and with no equal education or job to set me off on an ideal path right away. All that had made me who I am today, and what you see on the show is what you get.

Now being 33 I have arrived to the point where I realize how important it is to be happy on an everyday basis, and how possible it is! Importance of high-end long term goals in undeniable, but I wish I could inject into everyone who I see without a smile on their faces or who's shoulders are down under the life's heaviness with the understanding that I have in every cell of my being , that we already have everything we need for happiness when we are born. We have legs to walk, arms to hug people we love, fingers to touch, eyes to see, ears to listen, and heart to feel. I have gone to understand beauty comes in all shapes and forms. And I have grown up to accept myself the way I am.

My daughter is going through this period right now. You know what teenagers are like :) Never like what they have and always want to be what they are not :) Hopefully she will arrive to the point of loving herself for who she is far faster then I have :)

I was approached to be part of the show and I agreed to be a part of it. Seeing it as an opportunity to share my point of view with the world through my personal experience as well as through my art work. As an artist I want more people to see my art and my art to find its place in people's homes and minds. More personal art expressions coming out in a form of exhibits in West Palm Beach, Miami and London very soon, I projects that had been in the works for the past two years :) and several large format photo books / exhibits i am working on at the moment. www.icybook.com and www.djsbookonline.com

Now back to the show. You guys have NO idea how much you still have to witness. There is so much painful drama coming your way in a form of watching a relationship between Lina and George. Please try not to demonize that girl or make out George as an angel in that realtionship. They truly are worth each other. Do I think their relationship is healthy? No, not really. I had a similar relationship before I and I am better off without it. It's been a long time but I a much happier, content woman now.

Of course there will be hilarious parts of the show mostly coming from Michael and me, of course! You all noticed no- matching underwear in the spa scene right? Hey, it's only in the movies that girls ALWAYS wear matching underwear. I'm starting a new trend! It doesn't always have to be perfec ! Thank God I wore any underwear that day for that matter - lol!

There are going to be plenty of glam oily bodies under the sun, buzzed gorgeous women, and sexy hot guys as a backdrop of the show. Of course amazing beautiful steamy Miami as a special guest character of the show as well and you will end up diving deep into the complexities of human relationships and personalities on the show.

Psssttt you can tell me secretly how many times you will watch every single episode. I wont tell ! :)

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!!!!!
