Having said that: I work hard and I play hard. I don't take a lot of things so seriously, and I take things that are serious, very seriously. I think I have my priorities in order. I try to do what's right, be there for my friends, and I'm harder on myself than anyone else could ever be.
Sorry you didn't get to see much of my husband, he was in NYC during a long trial (that's why I missed Cristy's lunch -- and BTW I love crock-pot cooking.) I spent much of my time commuting with our son back and forth. I'm sure he's thinking, "Thank goodness I was at that trial instead of on that ridiculous crazy Looney Toons show with my wife and a bunch of girls." (He may never admit it -- but he laughed and laughed while watching parts of it, and of course cringed a couple of times, too.)
Meanwhile, the gala (theblacksannualgala.com) is this coming Saturday with Dionne Warwick, Pharell Williams, Pit Bull, and more. And of course I'm always running three businesses, loving my son beyond words, taking care of hubby, and having lots of plates spinning.
So back to my abnormal/normal life again -- Here we go!
Keep the peace and spread the love,

o m g leah if i could join one of those luncheons they would think you were an angel hit me up if you ever need a favor because these women are easy to deal with especially christy and larsa
I love that Lea just could care less about their opinions and just keeps going and enjoying life. Helping others along the way, nice example ;D You Go Girl!
I have to agree with the other ladies, bad idea going to a farm to have an organic salad. The only thing classy about that dinner was the limo ride.
You are fabulous! You are who you are and you make no bones about it. You are my favorite housewife on Miami. Thank you for all your contributions. You seem to have a true understanding of working toward the greater good as well as keeping people in line. I love that you took the women to the organic farm. It made a few great statements!
I thought your luncheon was awesome! It's too bad the ladies were too good to enjoy a good old fashioned home grown meal. New experiences are wasted on spoiled little girls.
We are so sad last night was the finale! But can't wait to see you on Andy's show. You are a wonderful and amazing woman, I hope Cristy has learned from you!! The people in your life are lucky to have you! We have really enjoyed spending Tues. nights with you and hope we will see more of you! We wish you all the best!!
We loved your luncheon last night!! It was hilarious about how all "gussied" up those girls got- they take things too seriously!! You seem like such a fun lady and we appreciate your humor and insight! I hope you stay on TV so we can keep up with you!! Take care- we are going to miss not seeing you for sure and we wish you well.
I repeat, just because you laugh after you say something does not mean that your comment was funny. I'm curious whether you were able to look past all the "hilarity" you speak of to see that your digs are hurtful not hilarious.
Loved the luncheon. At least Cristy got the humor. You did tell them to wear gloves and hats. Best show of season.
FOR SOMEONE WHO CLAIMS SHE DOES NOT CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK, YOU SPEND A GOOD DEAL OF TIME IN YOUR BLOGS DEFENDING & EXPLAINING YOURSELF AND YOUR ACTIONS. I think your trip to the organic farm would have been SO MUCH MORE SUCCESSFUL had you simply stated BEFOREHAND what you were planning to do. It seemed the "jest" was not worth the time and expense, especially for the famous chef! Had that been me traveling so far for a peek into an organic farm under false pretense, I would NOT have cared about the underlying humor.If this is such a special place in America...or "the world"..., then I would want to be prepared for this "once in a lifetime" opportunity. Frankly, Lea, IT'S NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL!...organic farms are now everywhere...and I am organic organic organic. Florida can be hot and buggy, and your luncheon seemed just that. It was a cruel joke to the ladies, and as a viewer, it just WAS NOT FUNNY!!!
Thank you, Lea, for being the only level-headed one in the group! Your sense of humor is hiliarous and the work you do for those less fortunate is absolutely wonderful. May God bless you and your family.
Lea, you are the best of the bunch. We have loved the show because of you. You have a great personality and you are a joy to watch.
Lea, you used to be my favorite, but .... not so much any more. You really think you are something, not sure why. Of you course you work, work , work and give to charity and help Adriana (whom by the way, cannot think without you by her side), blah, blah, blah. No one needs to pat you on the back, your arms must be tired from doing so yourself. Oh yes, you are sooooo funny, NOT. Try being a little more of what you preach. Hope you and Adriana do not come back.
Loved you on the show. Isnt it funny that Christy said you only have a name in Miami because of your husband when in fact she only has that because of hers. Growing up somewhere doesnt give you the privlage of hanging out with the elite. I was born and raised in a small town in TX and ive never been invited to the Country Club lol!
Lea, your a fabulous person and love your character, sure you can be OUT THERE in your comments but at the end of the day, you have a great heart and yes, to say that you are riding on your hubby's coat tails is ridiculous. I dont know anything about your career or past, but you just dont seem to be that type of woman. Continued success to you. You are a beautiful lady.
dear Lea : we are going to miss the show you are a beautifull and smart lady your husband is so lucky and you as well thanks for being honest and straightforward looking forward for next season best of luck
I LOVED your organic luncheon! That was fabulous! I will miss you in on Tuesday nights. Maybe Wednesdays next season?? I thought you were the most stable and grounded of them all . . . even though a little quirky at times (trying on clothes OVER clothes!!) If you weren't on there, I wouldn't have watched more than the first episode. Thanks for keeping it "real."
I hope you know how much you are adored!!! Hate the show is over already-- we are still wanting more!! Loved all the shows!! Enjoyed getting to know you and wish you well!!
You're my all time favorite on this show. I respect people who help others, stay sweet! You're a very beautiful woman as well!
You were by far my favorite but just can't get past how classless you were to Marysol on her engagement announcement. Sorry, no excuse for that type of behavior.
HouseandGarden-- Get over it since it wasn't THAT BIG OF A DEAL!! It wasn't only FUNNY it was HILARIOUS!! Sounds like you must be jealous! Go and eat something ORGANIC maybe that will relax you!
I just love...love...love you! bring it on don't stop. I think you are beautiful and straight forward Real woman!!!
Lea, you did a great job first season! You brought maturity and vision to the group of girls that are not so focused!
Lea, you're a breath of fresh air on the show. Love your quick wit, intelligence and classy style. Looking forward to watching more of you on next season!
Oh my sista Lea--- you are for real for sure!! We love you for keeping these girls in line and not being fake like so many of these housewives on TV these days!! We are so going to miss you sista! Keep on rolling like you do!!
Bravo for you Lea!! You have made the RHOM a great show!! What are we all going to watch on Tuesdays?? Hope you keep us posted thru Twitter on all your adventures and we wish you the best!!
Lea you don't know how much we are going to miss all the fun and action that you have going on in Miami!! All my friends and family love the show and we all agree you are the BEST!! You seem like the most real and down to earth housewife for sure!! We admire you for all your honesty and hard work! We can't wait for the reunion with Andy! Take care and keep on keeping it real!!
Lea Black- you have been our most favorite housewife since your first show! We have truly enjoyed all your fun and honesty thru this season of the show. You are a very entertaining person for sure!! Can't wait to see you on the reunion show!!
I have always been a Bravo "Housewives" fan-- and you take the cake for... being the most honest and down to earth person!! You have been a whole new light to this series show! You seem to just hit it right out of the park each time-and I love that about you! I hope the show continues with you for sure!! Looking forward to more!
My husband and I really enjoyed your show. This show seemed more like reality to us vs. the other housewife shows and that's what made it our favorite. We really enjoyed your clever and honest personality and see why you were chosen to be on this show!! I'm sure we will be seeing more of you!
My girlfriends and I are going to miss our Tues. nights with you! I hope the RHOM comes back and soon! It was a lot of fun and enjoyed every episode! Miami looks beautiful and hope to visit there someday! Thanks for all the fun!
Can't believe the season has flown by and Lea you are the reason we watch every week I read in NY Post Page 6 about your Charity event at Eden Roc this Saturday and wish we could be there to support you and your cause.
