Wow! I can't believe it's time to say farewell. It's been a remarkable journey with five fabulous women. Seeing all of our spicy personalities come together really defines what Miami is about!
I hosted a party with a few local Miami designers to showcase their "must haves for the summer." It was a great excuse for all of us to get together for some fun, shopping, eating, and cocktails!
At Marysol's dinner party I was expecting a cooking lesson; needless to say, that was not the case. This was my first and only time meeting Elsa, so I thought I would break the ice, and just for conversation I asked what kind of vibe she got from me. By vibe I thought she was going to tell me something about my personal aura (i.e. friendly, kind, dreamer, analytical, etc.). I never expected a light-hearted question to take such a drastic turn!
I had no intention of ruining Marysol's dinner, but the conversation got carried away and inappropriate things were said that I took offense to. I must say I overreacted and acted out of character. I want apologize for saying hurtful things; it's definitely not the way that I feel.
Lea's last luncheon was hilarious to watch. We all got punked. What a great sense of humor she has. She really knows how to get the party started. The bugs had a blast!!!
I invited the girls to come to my house so we could cool off. When Marysol asked to bring her mom to my house, I jokingly said no because my mom's a bigger bitch. It was in no way meant to be disrespectful to Marysol, her mother, or to my mother.
At last, I'd like to wish the ladies the best of luck in their future endeavors. I appreciate all the fans that watched and supported us throughout the season. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. What an interesting ride!
They really should have let you and Christy go in the middle of the season you are both to immature and all you wanted to do was throw your husbands name around. It is actuaally sickening. You were mean and nasty to the other cast members for no reason which goes to show that no matter how much momey a person has it doesnt mean thatey have class or have respect for yourself or others. Which you showed throughout the season that you have none.
I truly hope you work on that.
Elsa is a wonderful one of a kind lady. Marysol is very educated and classic.
You need to move on and leave the show.
The level of disrespect you showed is hard to believe.
The least you can do now is to properly apologize to Elsa and Marysol.
Oh Larsa, please, you are obiously trying to save face with your blog. Hopefully you are able to see how you truly are by watching yourself on TV. You really are not all that great, no matter how much your mother tells you so....
The entire 6 episodes you've been portrayed as a 'mean girl' with Christy, can you see what we see? Humble, modest-these are words you should learn.
No apology will change how you treated Elsa. The thing is, I don't really care for Elsa (she may grow on me) but I was highly offended at how you treated her. Doesn't the fact that you have fired scores of nanny's tell you anything? Please, move on and do not return to RHOM.
Larsa, i think that the way you act, spoke and the way you behave, was very rude and mean , specially to the people that work for you , your staff, if you do not beleive in the thing that Elsa was telling you WHY DID YOU KEEP ASKING. You know exactly what Elsa was talking about, and only you know your husband or thats what you think, because otherwise why would you care so much about it, I think that you need to have a conversation but with you husband, and beleive me I rather have a mother with a special give, like Elsa , than having a mother that will terminated an employee that does not even works for her. You are very rude and try to learn some manners specially in how to treat older people, unless those were the manners that they thought you at your house.
Someone who yells over the top of the other guests at dinner "I'm the most stable person here!" is clearly not emotionally mature. A person who is emotionally mature (or has a modicum of manners) would have politely listened and let Elsa speak to those who were actually interested in hearing what she had to say. Rudeness and self-centeredness are the hallmarks of emotional immaturity.
Actions speak louder than words and by your actions I find it hard to believe you are sorry for your immature words to and about Elsa. I am a Lebanese woman and I know better than to disrespect elders. I find you rather childish....
I'm not even sure what to say...... I think that you are the mean girl that has to say something bad about everything and everyone. I will say though that I watch to see the drama and girl you have me hooked. I just wish you were more opened minded about things and think before you open your mouth, it's not always about you Larsa.
I think Larsa's getting a bad rap, if she doesn't want to be accosted in front of a dinner party, that's understandable
Leave LARSA alone. Do you really think she was any more ill-behaved than any other housewife on any other housewife show...Miami, NY, OC or Beverly Hills? Please. She did nothing wrong. She was a wife, mother and friend on this show, and she lived her life well. Who can judge her based on what Elsa the Witch had to say? Larsa did NOT do anything wrong at Marysol's dinner party.
You need to get out more, into the real world and get some type of job or volunteer your time. You have been secluded in the 'rich world' far too long and it shows by your limited view of life and acceptance of the people around you. Lighten up remember your view isn't the only one and isn't always correct.
I hope that in watching the show you will see the "Larsa" that we have seen and try to improve yourself for the better. You need to come down off that high horse and become the person you seem to think you are.
Larsa, In the beginning of this season I thought that you were okay. However, as the season progressed your true colors came out. I would be ashamed if you were my daughter. My mother taught me to respect my peers, but above all, respect your elders and the way you treated Elsa was tasteless and rude. Money doesn't equal class and I really think that you could benefit from some etiquette classes. I think that you owe all the ladies a sincere apology....just saying!
You are really beautifull we all know,but your actions -atitude-behaivor-1 word "WOW"so sad and ugly-it looks like all you care about is how cute you look .You think people should care and feel sorry for you about what happen in the lunch at Marisol's-Oh poor you -you are too beautiful to be to be talk to that way.LOOK at how you talk to people--maybe if you thought about it you would not have to fire your staff all the time ,I really wonder what your staff has to say about the way you treat them.
i was flipping through channels and in the 30mins i saw while waiting for another show to start i will admit i was somewhat sucked in...but it didn't last long. i googled the show b/c i was interested in the reading the wife bios b/c WOW! some of these women came off with the intelligence of an immigrant mail order wife, b/c only that would make their personalites 'somewhat' more acceptable. I can only assume that the other 'Housewives" shows are just as eye rolling as this one, and since first impressions are lasting, i promise never to watch again.
From the beginning Elsa should have declined YOUR repeated invitations. BUT the fact that you persisted and then got offended b/c she didn't flatter you, is preposterous! Apparently, you do that for yourself quite enough. If you think you are the suns rays then shine baby, don't ask for permission or validation, just do it. However, from what i saw and heard from you, much of what Elsa said seem appropriate. Although you may not think so, your words, actions, and personality scream insecurity. Comparing yourself to the one's you call friends, to make yourself feel better and rationalize your superiority, is not only emotionally immature but blatant insecurity.
One, you should never ask for a reading, if you're not prepared for the worst. You should also never ask someone for a reading and then dismiss and debunk the act itself; claiming you don't believe, you don't agree, and it's all a hoax...then why ask in the first place??!! You willfully acted ignorantly and disrespectfully by calling her a psychic, even after being corrected several times. Your behavior and dominance as a guest at friends dinner party, is reprehensible. You NEVER attack and question a respected elder, especially a friends mother. YOU ASKED...AND ASKED....AND ASKED. It was obvious that you wanted Elsa to say something 'juicy' about the others so you could relish in their potential deficiencies, except in this case you were the one who was defected and didn't want to hear it. You were in fact rude, Marysol face showed her disgust with your antics and especially her embarassment, which is why if you or any of the others cared to acknowledge your host, you would've seen her embarrassment with the situation and her guests behavior (you) and stopped your persistent attacks. That's right, you were the one attacking not Elsa. When one is embarrassed it is not easy to put a stop to the assault; in Marysol's case, she kept quiet, didn't lash out, and remained at the table respectfully, but you could see the hurt in her face. Did you ever stop to think that Marysol is so much more respectful than you could ever be, that she would never dare interrupt her mother. The one time Marysol tried to intervene with her mom by commenting on her wine consumption, her mom scolded her. It's obvious Marysol knows better...the question is, why don't you?
Don't take this as an attack; it's not. I've never watched before but it only took 45mins to feel compelled to blog about it. You were out of line...multiple times. You should only apologize when you truly realize what you did wrong...and in person. Otherwise, don't bother.
I'm sure you can be a good person with a good heart at times and towards certain people, but sometimes one's personality is inescapable and it speaks louder than "good".
Good luck. And God Bless you.
Larsa, Your getting a lot of heat but I think its a bit unfair. Yea you got a little carried away in reaction to Elsa but really her comments were very rude and disrespectful. Its only natural for someone to get angry and offended. You were publically accosted and it was uncalled for and your reaction was natural. It was clear you were hurt and i believe it when you say it was out of character, we all do things we arnt proud of when upset. And although you and cristy kind of had the mean girl rep this season, i think it was only because you come off as so confident which i dont think is a bad thing at all! Being married to an NBA star must be pretty hard, i mean youve got ladies throwing themselves at your husbands, you have to be strong and straight forward. i love that you seemed to be an intelligent person and i thought your family was adorable. You and Alexia were my faves forsure! idk maybe i just like you cuz im from chicago too and i am a huge Pippen fan haha. But you do need to learn to be less caddy. You and cristy behaved like High School girls sometimes which is so not classy especially since you are mothers yourselves. But still i wish you the best! And unlike a lot of people i wana see you again if there is another season! I feel like we didnt get to really know you, we've just scratched the surface.
I believe that Larsa's apology is due to the back lash she's received because of her actions on the show. It does NOT seem sincere and I personally don’t buy it. She insulted and spoke ill of Mrs. Patton repeatedly which is obviously a reflection of her poor upbringing. If she really did not want to know about her possible future, why ask. She needs to stop pretending that she’s perfect; honestly, her claim to fame is being married to a basket ball player. She’s really NOT that fabulous.
Furthermore, the conversation she had with her mom regarding the nanny’s was completely pretentious and they reek of “new money” syndrome. They are living proof that money doesn’t buy class.
At the risk of sounding completely negative, I must say that Marysol handled the situation very gracefully. A complete class act. Mrs. Elsa Patton does not seem to be a negative person as said by Larsa – from what I saw of the show, she praises her daughter every chance she gets.
I'm a huge Elsa Fan!!! I just love her, she's wonderfully entertaining and insightful. I love elders whom you can learn something from. She has so much wisdom, charisma and old world charm. I can only imagine her in her hay-day.. I bet she was a fire cracker!!!! lol I love the relationship between her and Marysol, and the degree of respect that Marysol has towards her mother, their relationship is Priceless... Larsa, you could learn alot from the two of them. The only words I have for you are "Some people grow older, but they never grow up.."
I think there is a story here. You do protest too much that everything is perfect. While your insecurity did came through, I think she touched on something you were concerned about (whether it is your relationship, children, money etc). You pursued the "reading" of sorts. Then you monopolized the whole dinner with your attempt to disprove everything she was saying.
Maybe it is time for some deep self reflection!
hi, I've read the comments and who are we to judge. Regardless appearing on a show and openning yourself to the public you won't be everyones cup of tea. Sometimes we speak without really thinking of the consequences of our comments. Upbringing has alot to do with how you respond to an older womens comments or uncomfortable situations. A lot of her comments I did not care for but I dont live or support her. The nanny situation was appauling on making rude comments and the mom was not helping. The one truth if the tree is not good the fruit will also be bad.
I'm watching all the reruns of the shows and caught the part you said about your nannies about them being retarded. I hope in the future you drop that word from your vocabulary, because if you had someone in your family, maybe one you were close to that had a handicap you wouldn't be so loose with that word. It hurts to hear it.
I watched the reruns of the show, and frankly you were portrayed as a mean girl along with Cristy. The comments that you made were off, I will admit that if you asked her to tell you something then you should be prepared to listen and accept it as part of your "education". What you said about "my mom is a bigger bitch than yours" was out of place and very disrespectful, then again is reality television. Elsa is a very nice lady, and because of her age she is owed the respect..... The show was only six episodes long and in reality if it returns for a second season it will be a surprise
Larsa, I think the reason you overreacted is because you could not sit knowing that somebody in that room thought your marriage was in trouble or that you could be heading for a crisis in your family. However if you were secure in your life and love it would not upset you that much. It would be an annoyance. But it was more than an annoyance to you. I think that you do worry about Scottie leaving you. Didn't you say that you manage all the money so that he can't leave? Even if you meant that as a joke, it's quite freudian-revealing. It means you worry about your husband leaving.
@ Saharak, I agree with you 100 % it's a shame Larsa had to be the one sitting next to Marysol's Mom. You need not worry. I'm a very level headed woman. I couldnt believe what was coming from that womans mouth. And for Marysol to be angry with you was appauling. She should be chastising her Mom for going after a guest. Come on, Marysol isn't married to a world champion basketball player. Like I posted before. Maybe they're just a little jealous she doesn't get the same financial situation you're in with a Basketball player for a husband, Marysols husband isnt rich. Everyone knows that basketball players make the most money than in any other proffesional sport.Like Larsa said it doesnt matter. But the fact that she said that makes her rude for talking of ones financial status. Let her worry about her own finances.
I think you were very disrespectful. We can tell that you are new money and that you have something to hide. Please don't come back next season and take cristy with you.
WOW! Thats all I can say...well I can say that I hope you realize by watching the show how sad you look and if you dont hopefully your husband does and can really find you a good counsler, the best his money can buy.
I believe you are right on with this comment. Marysol always pulls herself together during confrontation and takes her time dealing with it. Larsa is like a little yappy dog going off about how wonderful she is, so irritating and rude.
i think that Larsa proved by her actions that she is very "emotionally immature", and that Elsa hit the nail right on the head. And after watching the reunion show, I think even less of her character. Its one thing to believe in yourself, but quite another to think your absolutely perfect, got news for ya kid, your not, no one is! I was a huge fan of Larsa in the beginning episodes, but by the end i am hoping that they come up with different housewives for miami, I couldn't imagine watching anyone in this cast minus ELsa and Marysol, I thought they were delightful and fun. How in the heck did she think that she was being attacked by Elsa? SHe wouldn't leave her alone, and even ruined marysols dinner party. Wasn't she just complaining about her dinner party being ruined? It was very disturbing seeing an elderly woman being so disrespected.
Ok , First off love your husband, i live in Illinois and remeber the awesome bulls team. But i think you were kinda like Kyle Richards in thinking that you would be the "sain one" but honey that didnt happen. Not for her either. Please check yourself and watch yourself....its not good. If you all get another season which im kinda wondering myself? I really hope you try to act a little better towards people. Good Luck.
Elsa said before your"reading", she thinks your a WONDERFUL PERSON and she LIKES YOU VERY MUCH. Maybe as you "mature" you will listen better before you lash out and preceive your being attached.
I fear your PERFECT world is in your head.
I think that on the reunion you showed a better side of yourself and behaved like a lady!
The one thing that I am not sure of is why you think that Marysol looks like your mother. We actually had guessed you two to be at the same age! Or that maybe you are one year younger. Age is of no importance though!
But you are indeed mistaken. I think Bravo should have one of those voting polls so thousands of people can vote and then you could get a real opinion.
Good luck and looking forward to the next season.
Larsa I love you either way people are always going to have their own opinions no matter what. As far as marysol's mother regardless weither shes older or not does not mean she should get away with saying certain things. I think marysol should have jumped in and said enough is enough and told her mom to stop talking about it just like you would do if it was your mom. As far as people critizing everything you say, people need to relax and not take everything so serious. "normal" people (not famous or not a tv star) say things all day long and dont get critized because they are not on tv anyone who takes words out of context such as calling your nannies retarded is their problem. I dont think it should have been taken so seriously. anyway, looking foward to another season!
I agree. She not only disrespected Elsa, she disrespected her own mom by calling her a "bitch". I would never refer to my mother or in fact, no woman.
OMG Larsa!!!! Elsa is a 76 year old woman, and you are going at this like she's one of the housewives or a highschool nemesis who "hurt your feelings". SO WHAT? She's an elderly lady who may have hurt your feelings, but you are a supposedly "nice" person who feels it's appropriate to go after someone almost twice your age...time, and time, and time again? You have a very different description of NICE than most people. And how about R-E-S-P-E-C-T, as your friend Cristy says it, for someone elderly? Grow up, get over it, and realize that pretty is as pretty does...and you looked a lot prettier at the beginning of the season than you turned out to be at the end.
You over reacted to Elsa's comments because it hurt your feelings and dealt with something you hold dear to your heart (your family). But you should have just left it there. That was her "reading" and arguing with her throughout the dinner did not change anything. Now months later you are still trying to justify your terribly rude behavior and trying to make excuses for why you did what you did. OWN UP TO THE FACT THAT YOU WERE RUDE AND STOP TRYING TO RATIONALIZE YOUR POOR BEHAVOIR!!! Its just making you look worse and worse (or shall we say emotionally immature)!
Larsa, you are in over your head. Empathy goes a long way here and if someone blogged, tweeted and criticized YOUR mother I am sure you would have a fit or two.
It's hurtful, disrespectful.....you know you were out of line. You know it. But your ego is getting in the way.
I admit, that must be a scary situation to come across at a dinner party. If and when you confront your fears, then the situation will seem trite......But until then........
I am from Chicago and loved the Bulls, and Scottie and MJ from way back. So I was excited about watching you. Well soon after the first show, you came across as 'a mean girl'. I can see you and Cristy on Basketball Wives you would fit in better in that cast. If you ever called my mother a bitch.. I would never have anything more to do with you. I Loved Marysol, Alexia, Adriana they rocked!
See you on VH1..
First I thought you are the sweetest lady but it turned to be the opposite. You are a very disrespectful women and so in loved with yourself. You think that you are perfect well let me tell this YOUR NOT. You are a hypocrite. At the end you showed who you truly are. Grow up and show some respect to people.
