Larsa extolls the virtues of hard-work and confidence, in this week's blog.

on Mar 9, 20110

Thanks for watching tonight's episode of The Real Housewives of Miami!

I love being able to recap each episode with you all, by now I am sure you're getting to know my sarcastic side. I love to laugh and brighten up the mood.

My best friend, Mary Floyd, and I met Cristy and her friend Luqui for a drink at Cafeina. After returning from our family trip at ESPN that weekend I asked Christy what exactly happened at Lea's Gala. Cristy explained how she got a flat tire on her way--I think she might need a driver, LOL! We enjoyed the rest of our night dancing.

Adriana invited us to lunch but it almost ended up being dinner by the time she made it. We were starving! I was really happy to see her. It ended up being really fun.

I'm a firm believer in "if you work hard you should be rewarded." My little brother Sammy is an exceptional kid. He's a great scholar, and excels at everything he does. I don't know very many 16-year-old boys who volunteer there free time to give back. He's so great that Scottie and I wanted to do something special for him. He better continue to do well in school, etc., or I'll be driving a FJ cruiser.

My husband has worked so hard throughout his career; it was amazing seeing him being rewarded with his recent induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

It's great to see creativity expressed through art. The artist had great pieces displayed, I definitely loved Lea's piece the best! I can't wait for my unveiling next year, LOL! Mind you, the host of the event showed up two hours late. Mary and I stayed for a couple hours, enjoyed the event and moved on.

Confidence is sexy, but by no means was I serious about wanting my painting plastered at the gallery.

There's nothing more beautiful and fun than filming the show. I really didn't think I had drama in my life until I watched the show. It's so much fun hanging with positive, confident people. I always compliment my friends, because I love them, and, of course, they are fab. I love confident people! I totally love and enjoy life everyday.

Larsa~~~ Seriously~~I just began watching tonights episode (3-15-11 airing) and you stick that poor innocent bunny in a cage not even big enough to turn around in!! With all your money don't you think you could have gotten it something more appropriate?? Did you even research what it takes to care for a rabbit?? Did you know they are easily trained to a litter box? Take it from someone who knows since I have 2 house rabbits of my own~~and by the way adopted from a high kill shelter~~because 90% of rabbits end up discarded like trash once people realize there is more to keeping a rabbit than simply their cuteness!!

Please do some research and get that poor bunny a bigger cage~~

Something for you to remember...you are blessed and lucky. You life could have turned out differently. Marrying well is not an accomplishment, it is what you do with those blessing that make an accomplished woman. Many of the housewives come off as spoiled, and that is a big turn off to viewers. Please watch the name calling when referring to your employees, it does not bode well for you. You may think that it shines a bad light on them, all it does is make you look entitled and shallow.

mmmm--

i agree with you 100% I think is the cameras- one minute you may be on top of the world and the next minute you may be down-- Thank God for what you have and be humble

I love your sarcastic sense of humor! People take it too seriously and they need to relax!!! You have a good heart and its nice to see you stay close to your family even though they live in Chicago. I think you and Alexia are the most down to earth of the bunch and appear to be good moms. Keep it real and ignore the negativity, people are just jealous!!!

i really like you, i don't know why people get on your case for whatever you do or say. about the nannies i didn't think it was rude, your paying them and if there not doing there job then is time to get replacement. your always happy and say things how they are. i guess people get bother about the truth :)

your friendship with Christy is no good! you love your family and husband and all she cares about is being single and partying!

Wow...
Wow...

Wow! You really resemble Debra Messing in your blog photo! :)

Truth be told, this post seems sanitized and boring....everything is "fun" and "beautiful"....really? You have stronger and more judgmental opinions on the show so it seems like you're thinking *after* you speak/act and using your blog to backtrack. Perhaps you should try to think before you speak/act so that you're perceived more positively.

Also, you should probably have a friend proof-read your blog before posting. :)

I think ur definately one of my favs this season but I wonder why u would view your nannies as being less human and not deserving of being treated as human beings. I still thnk that maybe u just said that for TV and I sincerely hope that u actually treat other people like u would want to be treated.

I have very mixed feelings about you thus far. I think it is wonderful that you share with your family and rather you chose to buy a $25k or $50 car for your brother that is no ones business. It is nice for you and your husband to be generous. I have to say the way you speak about your nannies is disgusting. I think maybe you are normally not a nasty person and maybe the cameras just got to your head. I hope I am right and I hope you will "right" yourself with the comments you made regarding the nannies. It is just not kind at all. Those women rather they lived up to your standards or not are human beings, most likely with their own families to care for and they are out there working. Just be respectful of others. You are physically a beautiful woman, but that behavior makes you look so UGLY!

Larsa you seem to be a very nice person. I love that you are hands-on with your kids. I understand the deal with the nannies. Because nannies take care of kids when parents are usually around, they think they can get away with anything -mostly not doing their job. My friend had a similar situation with her nanny. They put a hidden camera in their house and found that she didn't interact with the kids all day, only to feed them. I also understand you may have been somewhat joking. Congrats to your husband on his accomplishments! Finally, about your brother and that car...PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE drive with that boy and make sure that he is a responsible driver. He was driving WAY TOO FAST around those turns, screeching the tires. You should be concerned about his safety. You are one of my favs! Thanks for sharing your life on Bravo.

Larsa, I am catching onto your sarcastic side- too funny. I find you very entertaining and you are my favorite. I know you have a good heart, just be careful how your word things- some viewers will take it the wrong way (nanny names). Congrats to your husband. Well deserved. Can't wait to watch the rest of season!

Almost a postive blog, the only mean thing you said was about the host arriving late which was not necessary. Sometimes one has to put the story straight but I believe viewers saw that you were at the art exhibition before the host and if you were ready to leave, then you were ready to leave. No need to bash the host. It was rude to leave withough saying goodbye oh well.

Can you go an episode without saying "cute" less then 4 times?! It's so irritating. When you use a word such as "cute" over and over, it makes you seem very uneducated and a serious lack of vocabulary. It's just not "cute." I will watch one more episode before I tune out completely. Definitely not "cute." Did I get my "cute" point across?

We get it, your families from CHICAGO, you're from CHICAGO, you use to live in CHICAGO and your husband played basketball for the CHICAGO bulls. Your mother left CHICAGO, to come to see you in Florida.

Are you or one of your family members employed by a CHICAGO tourist business?

I think you were very rude when talking about your nannies. Perhaps you should have a little bit more respect for them and at least remember their names. I liked you but after seeing this scene I have completely changed my opinion.

I just love you! I think you're a great mom and wife and I love that you're there for your extended family (i.e., mom and brother). You don't need to explain why you bought your brother his first car, it's simply, you have the means and the heart.

I'm not sure of Christy's deal but she seems negative and appears to be on some drug... most of the time - I think that's where your "bad image" came from. Anyhow, I'm glad we're seeing the real you - continue to be loveable!

It was fun to hear the great news about the Hall of Fame. You all have to be so so happy. I don't know if the ceremony has taken place yet....I'll bet your children having watched their dad receive or going to watch their daddy receive the award will be a wonderful moment. I have a feeling you and your husband will enjoy that part of it the most. Congratulations to you all.
