Hope everyone is good and enjoying the show thus far. :)
As far as the gala, I will say this: I did contribute happily to the charity, and the rest is all drama created by those who need something to talk about!
A lot of you have asked me about the comment Alexia made about me in her blog last week: WOW!! I have never said anything about her but nice things (and as she said: the show will prove it)! On the contrary, I often compliment her! Wish I could say the same for her, but this clearly reveals her thoughts about me!
I did however, say that I was not in agreement with her comments regarding the city of Hialeah, and I stand by my words!
On to the show tonight: Gabriella Arango is a beautiful woman and designer, and I am so happy to be able to help her out modeling and supporting the Haitian relief!!! This is going to be a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to it. :)
Alexia's dinner was great! I think Herman did a great job with the "lechon" and all of the reactions were hysterical, Lea's in particular!
I am off to Paris to see my beautiful little cousin get married, but I will try to Twitter or blog from there!
You should have bought a ticket or paid right there. You come off so ritzy, but that was a cheap move.
you really crack me up and not in a good way....you keep saying "who does that?" in regard to getting the invoice for the fun raiser when the really question is who shows up with three people at an event like that where EVERYONE paid to be there but you ??? you really need to get over yourself, because your NOT all that....if fact your far from it!!
You say you want to put the whole gala incident in the past but it seems you keep bringing it up. You have said on many occasions that you just went to show support but the way you show support for a charity is with a check and not an appearance. You should have saved the money on the dress and sent a donation instead, and the comments you made that you should have been paid for going are rediculous and make you look terrible.
I think it was totally appropriate that Alexa send you a certified letter with pictures of you and your guest at the event. It was very smart of her because she has a record of you being notified that you received the bill, evidence that you were in attendance and she made an attempt to collect the money owed. It was a smart move and that is what you do when tacky, classless people crash and event and show up thinking you are doing her a favor(which shows that you are quite full of yourself). It was a charity event and then entrance fee was $500.00 ...not difficult to understand for most.
Cristy - I want to give you the benefit of the doubt and hope that you are not the person you are portraying yourself to be. Tacky is not expecting someone to pay for a ticket to a charity event. Tacky is saying that you are doing someone a favor by showing up to their event and feeling you are entitled to be there because you know people that were in attendance. If you wanted to do Lea a favor, you should have donated the money to the charity. Do you really think your mere presence was benefitting the education of any children? You should think more often before you speak. You have contradicted yourself so many times!! You were late because you had a flat tire, yet after the fact you only planned to stop by. You were only stopping by before meeting friends for dinner, yet you mention going through the trouble getting dressed up in a gown for the event. You said you didn't need to go just for the sake of going to another charity event... It appears you only go to be seen. Have you ever actually put any thought into the charities? No, none of you or myself NEED to go to another charity event but the people that benefit from them do NEED you to and they NEED you to pay. Your pretty face isn't and friend roster isn't helping anyone other than you feel good about yourself.
"....We laugh jut a little too loud We stand just a little too close We stare just a little too long... Let's give them something to talk about A little mystery to figure out..."
All I have to say is its not about you the charity was for the kids and if u just made an apperiance you should still pay for the ticket .....money goes to help kids ....those kids that need that money dont care that you made an apperance they care that you donated to help them and that you care . so stop acting like a selfish spoiled brat and think about those kids
Who are you? I've watched this show from the beginning and have not a clue as to who you are, what you do, and why you are on this show?
If you attended the function after all, you should have paid at that moment or given your contribution. It would have looked more proper at that time. Leah was in her right to ask you for the contribution, going in with 2 friends and then making it seem that they should pay you for your appearance?
It is unfortunate that the ticket thing became the "hit" drama of the first season - but, hey, it had to be something.. I agree you should pay but I agree with your feeling that it has been taken too far (comments, drama).. After all, you got invoiced and paid, so that should wrap it up and you guys should be able to keep the friendship and the good vibe. It was just a misunderstanding, a disagreement. I love your vibration, your sense of humor, you Cuban pride. Can't wait to see more! xoxo
You insinuated last night that you deserved to be at Lea's charity event because 'you've known these people for 15 years.' You obviously still don't get it. What you did was so unbelievably lacking in class and good judgment, and completely illustrated how obviously full of yourself you are. I do not care who you were previously married to, you are not above the rules of society and taste. You only paid for two tickets but you brought three friends, and then said that they should have paid YOU to be there. You then complained to your friend that Lea was the one who was out of line. Please. Lea worked her butt off to help the lives of children in need with this event, and your actions made you look so cheap and shallow. I am not a fan, nor will I ever be because of what you did, and the fact that you never owned up to it.
It was not right of you to attend without paying and to keep talking about it with friends, and at lunch, is even worse. Makes you look totally classless. You should know better and you would have been a much bigger person, to apologize, admit that you made a mistake and pay up. Then it would all go away and you would look like a lady, instead you are coming off very low class. Sorry kiddo. You got a lot of work to do!!
You have OBVIOUSLY never tried to run a charity event, or perhaps you would understand the value of speaking to your host or hostess at the event should you choose to show up without paying the appropriate attendance fee.
I hope that you've learned how to behave properly in this situation in the future.
While your motives might have been to support the charity by attending, you were in the wrong and you should have graciously apologized and thanked the host/hostess for the party when presenting them with your check. It's a charity. It's not a club opening.
Don't quite get you....you seem to think everyone and everything should be honored to have you in their presence, I, for one, am not impressed. Like someone said before, not sure what your claim to fame is other than marrying and divorcing a rich basketball player. Not sure why you seem so offended that someone would actually expect you to contribute to a charity after you showed up with people and clearly enjoyed yourselves. Certainly very brazen of you to assume people should pay YOU to be there.
The Charity wasn't for you, meaning you don't have to pay because you are the charity! "Supporting" a charity means giving "money". You had to buy a ticket to attend.. not crash the event for free! That is NOT supporting anything but your cheap ego! You come off as cheap and rude with no class, totally SELF IMPORTANT! These are very unattractive qualities!
"Who does that?" Please woman, who shows up for a charity event and doesnt pay?! Classless move. You probably could have recovered well, by admitting where you were wrong and by putting up the money. Another classless move was trying to run Lea down for being a smart woman. Yes, you OWE her money, the smart move for her was to take the necessary steps to recover the debt. Dont be cheap, especially when you HAVE the money to give. TACKY.
I don't understand why bravo hasn't shown us ANYTHING about your life. They just kindof have you there, doing nothing. Are they going to show us your family life, work etc. We know nothing!!
The very first episode I thought you were going to be a great addition to the show. It seems like the most cattyness is coming from you though. All the other girls seem to be comfortable enough with themselves to not make harsh comments behind the others backs, except for you. Hopefully after seeing how you portray yourself it will give you the opportunity to change.
Harsh comments about others will never get you anywhere,
Its the good things you do that people will remember you for...
Girl!!! I hope you're donating this time and not just "appearing" or "modeling"!! These charities are for a good cause and give you the opportunity to at least show that you can be a good person.
Next time, if you know you are going pay before hand or at the door. Yes, I agree Lea likes drama, but sweetie you are on a housewives show, what did you expect?
The ticket was $500.00. If you are as well off as you portray, than what is 1,500.00 to you? It isn't even much to me and I'm not divorced from a NBA player, co-starring on a show about women with above average life styles.
Love your jewelry
I love your bracelets; I think you said you design them. Pardon me if my question is too personal, but are they orisha-inspired? Tu tienes santo?
I think everyone is giving you a hard time because no one else has had any "mishap" on the show yet. I''m not gonna lie I gave you a hard time a few weeks ago on your blog and now I feel bad about it. Lets be honest, none of the viewers really know who you are so its not really fair that we can sit behind our computers and write mean things.
Thanks for letting us into your life and stirring the pot a little bit. I mean really that's what we all watch you guys for right?! I have to admit although I don't always agree, your blogs are usually more entertaining than the rest BECAUSE there's a little drama in them! Also, how weird is that one comment on here with the song lyrics?? Creepy.... haha
I understand your comment about going to Lea's event to show support. However, you knew it was an event to raise money for charity. How could you have not thought that even if you were just stopping by, you should still pay for your ticket? Every charity event that I have ever been to I have paid. Even when showing support for friends on the charity's board, I paid even though I was offered free entry. I wanted to do my part to contribute. If I stayed 10 minutes or 3 hours, I paid. The point of showing your support for the event is to contribute. Not showing up to say hi to your friends. If everyone did what you did, no charities would ever earn a dollar! Next time think about what showing support and contributing mean to a fundraising event.
I have had to read your Bio twice because I keep forgetting why you're there lol. I guess your ex-husband didnt allow your kids to be on a reality show. Smart man! Thats why they dont show much about your life on the show.
I agree with most of the comments posted except for the nice ones, which are very few. The minute I saw you enter the gala with your two friends and made your rounds I couldn't stop rolling my eyes at you! Once Leah said you didn't pay I thought to myself she must have a check on her, but you didn't and then you had the nerve to get offended when Leah sent you an invoice!! At least Leah didn't confront you during the fundraiser! I was hoping she would but Leah took the high road and you carried on like a child. You continue to make yourself look bad especially when you hosted a lunch for the girls and said to Adrianna when she got upset when her fiance hung up on her b/c she forgot to pick up her own son up from school (which is a whole other story), you said in such an obnoxious arrogant demeanor how he should kiss your ass 24/7 or goodbye!?!? I was like, ewwww, this girl thinks who the hell she is and that's why she's alone!! You think you're god's gift to the world but sorry to burst your bubble hunny you're not all that special. I'm not sure how you got on this show, you must come from money or something and bravo must've needed to fill a spot and thought you add drama to the show and they were right! You're definitely the one to hate this season. Hopefully you'll prove me wrong but right now all you do is irritate me and everyone else for that matter.
Christy, You were wrong for showing up at the event without paying. It doesn't matter who you knew. If you could take the time to catch a cab after having a flat tire and attend the event, surely you could have stroked a check for a good cause.
Cristy, I know you have made some mistakes, however; I think you bring spice to the show. I would rather watch you, than to spend a half hour seeing a pig being gutted and roasted. Boring.
Cristy, Why don't you just own up to it and admit you made a mistake at the Charity event by showing up unannounced? If you admitted your mistake and apologized for it, alot more people would respect you and not bash you as being stupid as you appear to be! The reunion show is coming up so I hope you grow some dignity and apologize for screwing up..Believe me, alot of people really dislike you because of your attitude and self-rightous assumption that you they should have paid you for showing up..Really? and who the heck are you??
Cristy, Too bad they didn't put up my first blog. You are CAT from Wash DC are my favorites. Love the way you dress, you always look so cute. People just don't have a sense of humor, You are very funny, love your attitude!
We all get by now that you are a proud cuban~american...no need to keep bringing it up.We have also yet to see what exactly it is you do with your life besides being social. So far you and Ms. Pippin are not coming off to nicely in this show and are actually making it unbearable to watch. Yet I have loyalty to ALL the Housewives shows and will continue to watch til the end. Stop trying to impress the cameras or whatever it is that is making you act like you are all that. i hope these comments from fellow watchers good and or bad click with you,and perhaps we wll see more of a real person than what we are getting.
Cristy, . You looked liked the deer caught in the highlights. I saw you come in with two girls. Charity means giving. Don't let an ego get in the way of friendship.
There are only a couple of the cast members that I like and you are one of them. Don't let any of these negative comments get to you. Hope to see a bit more of your life in the coming seasons of RHW of MIA. Loved your face when Adriana mentioned the tickets. LOL OMG! She didn't know what to do with herself LOL. Serves her right. She didn't need to bring it up here and ruin the luncheon.
Well, continue having a blast!!! Sigue siendo orgullosa de quien eres!!!! Latina hasta la tambora!!!!
Here here!! Well said. Yes, I've been to many charity events as well, Cristy, and I might add that I've paid for EVERY one. The point of GOING to a charity event is to support the charity and the hosts by donating money. (Not a very complex concept). You are not doing anyone a favor by crashing an event and then trying to make it seem like the host is "tactless" by asking you to pay for the admission to the party. Something that everyone in the room did except you and your entourage. You are 100% in the wrong. Own up to it. By not apologizing and being defensive, you come off as a tacky, egocentric, low class participant. You should be ashamed of your behavior and additionally for imposing on a fundraising committee and making them strong arm you for payment. Really? You didn't even pay for all your guests? Truly a classless move.
Christy ... why do you keep looking at the cameras? Everything you say, the way you answer your cell phone, the way you interact with the other ladies, is all "play" to the camera. Also, please stop mumbling. It's difficult to understand anything you say. Are you embarrassed at your response, or not confident in what you're saying? You're constantly giving the impression that you've been caught doing something wrong, and then you give a coy answer. Annoying, annoying, and annoying. By the way, I'm 49, and there are worse things than being 49. For instance, being your age and acting 12.
We all clearly saw you walk in with 2 extra friends. The cameras catch everything darlin. I am actually glad that this show only went for 6 episodes. Not sure if we could continue to handle all your 'charming' qualities.
You are not all that and a bag of chips as they say. Camera showed you coming in with 2 other friends which means there were 3 of you-$1500! This is for charity and apparently you were fortunate enough to either grow up with money or divorce with a huge settlement. You are like the mean girl who thought she was hot in high school, but does not really bring anything to the table. I hope we can see another side of you because I would hate to think that people can be THAT shallow at all times. Money does not bring you class. Own it and move on.
I just do not get you Cristy? You have no Class at all! All the other housewives are a pleasure to see on the show except you.
You are constantly mentioning your Cuban. OK Miami is in the United States!!!
You are a backstabber and cannot wait to start a fight with your words.........
WOW - you need to go back and look at the episodes. You clearly arrived with 2 other people at the charity event and yet you deny it. The fact that you attack whenever it's brought up that you needed to pay (and didn't until you rec'd the bill) for the 3 of you proves that you thought you'd get away with it. I guess you just thought the splendor of your presence was enough. You continually insult/attack Lea - she is right. Others paid for the event-why do you think you're above it. The fact that you finally did pay (if you did at all) was because you got caught. You insult Lea and the other ladies as to wardrobe, etc. - who made you the fashion god? You constantly remark on Lea's age - SO WHAT? Hopefully you're puttng on this attitude for the cameras (which you seemingly look at constantly) and this is not the real you.
