Thanks Bravo fans for tuning back in to RHMIA.
On tonight's episode, my boyfriend surprised me by dropping a bomb at the place where we had our first date. We're engaged!! I was speechless.
I've known Philippe for a long time and our relationship has evolved into something beautiful.
It was so refreshing that he asked my parents for my hand before proposing and it is those values and traditions that I love most about him. I thought it was so sweet of Philippe to consult my mother about the wedding ring. I knew I recognized this stone from before; my mother and Philippe thought they were being so sneaky, while they were plotting the engagement out for weeks. My taste in jewelry is a bit ostentatious but this ring far exceeded all of my expectations.
I was really excited to go to Alexia's for a dinner featuring a cultural tradition that I have grown up with "lechon." It wouldn't be the Real Housewives show without a bit of drama… so many of you have asked me how I felt about Lea's "green Card" comment.
Here is the dirty lowdown…
I'm so glad to know you didn't think Lea was being a mean girl when she made her comment and you knew it was a joke. I also understand your wanting the announcement moment to be special and sweet....it wasn't the way you envisioned but you do have an incredible memory of the proposal moment....and Filmed Too. It was absolutely lovely.
Glad to see you enjoyed the "lechon" it looked delicious ! a typical cuban dish, anyone who lives in Miami has seen it smelled it and dare i say even tasted it! and loved it ! it was ridiculous how Lea was acting, about the pig and she was rude to you but i think that's the way she is with everyone! anyway you seem to be the most "normal' and likeable as is your mother ! congratulations !
All the dresses were beautiful and you could have picked any one of them. We wish you and Phillipe the very best. I didn't laugh at Lea's green card joke...that was not the time. Only congratulations were in order for the newly engaged couple. Alsol I'm glad to enjoy the traditions of other cultures and I thought Herman did a fantastic job on the roasted pig. Everyone should have complimented him on a superb meal - and if they didn't want pig....well there were other things to eat. No negative comments should have been made......at least there shouldn't have been if the guests had manners!! I'll eat at Herman's table anytime and be grateful for the lovely invite.
Marysol, you are a beautiful and sweet woman and I wish you and your husband a Blessed and happy marriage; you deserve it! And let's not forget how amazing you looked in every single dress you tried on! You couldn't have gone wrong with any one of them! Lastly, I LOVE YOUR MOM, SHE IS HILARIOUS!!! I bet there is never a dull moment in her home! Lol!
What an excellent example of class and maturity! You are a beautiful person inside and out! I adore you and your mother! Congratulations on your marriage! I can't wait to see the wedding episode:-)
Good luck with your marriage! I'm just curious why there was such a short engagement... ...The lechon looked amazing. I can understand people wanting to go a more vegetarian route, but if you eat meat, I think it is important to understand where it comes from. Didn't shock me at all!
Marysol - Congratulations on your marriage to Philippe - i hope you two are happy for a very, very, long time. As for Lea, regardless if you know her sense of humor or not, that was a mean-spirited thing to say, especially at a dinner party. I cannot get enough of your mom. We talk about her at work almost every day. She's hilarious. Best wishes again.
Marysol, you looked beautiful in all of the Angel Sanchez dresses! I wish you much happiness with Phillippe!
Marysol, you are such a sweetheart! Congratulations on your engagement (and, I assume, wedding). I thought you and Phillippe looked so sweet and so happy. I have never heard you say a mean word about anyone. I also think your mother is a hoot! And I am so glad you came to Colorado for your wedding! Good going girl! Keep sweet!
I would have to agree that you handled Lea's so called funny outburst with class. No matter if she was finding humor in it or not that was just uncalled for. What I do not understand is that all those ladies sitting at the table are supposed to be your friends, how come they did not stick up for you or tell Lea that her humor was only funny to her? Just because Lea is some hoighty toighty in Miami doesn't mean that she should be able to walk all over or put down whomever she likes. I wish you and yours well in the future.
You are becoming my FAVORITE Miami Housewife as we go along .... you also get more beautiful - I think you have a wonderful aura that shines !!! Congratulations to you & Phillipe & thanks for making the season worth watching ... unfortunately I feel like switching channels on some of the other ladies !!
You handled Lea perfectly by keeping quiet and therefore, remaining classy. Good thing Adriana didn't break out her "violins" by ruining the evening any further with her drama and self pity. She does a horrible job of being a martyr. The show would be much more interesting without her and her crocodile tears in it!
Marysol congrats to you and Philippe and i hope you will have a long and lasting marriage.I loved all the wedding dresses they were all beautiful.
Marysol, You are by far my favorite! Congrats on your engagement and hopefully wedding. I love your mother too. She must have been amazing to grow up with. You are the classiest of the housewives in Miami. Can't wait for the future episodes. Xo
You and your boyfriend make a cute couple! He seems really sweet and caring. Wishing you a happy life together! :)
Marysol I luv U! I love jewelery just like you. Good Luck with everything! I luv, Luv, your mother she is something else. Luv U! Miss Cozy from the D!
Marysol, first and foremost let me tell you how impressed I am with your elegance and maturity. I can’t share the same respect for the rest of the ladies. Your ability to dine and not concern yourself with everyone else’s issues was endearing. Absolutely adore the relationship with your mother. Thank you for not adopting the word “like” into your normal sentence structure – which is what Alexis does – it annoys me greatly – not even my teenagers talk like that.. I do wish you great happiness and continues success in your business.
Get over it... Lea was only joking surely, if he is the love of your life don't worry over anyone's comments, she was only having fun! Good luck hon!
I am very happy for you! The ring was agenerous and beautiful gift from your mom!! I love your mom! I wish all of you the best!!! You and your fiance and mom seem like really nice people!
You are a beautiful woman, I am so impressed with how you live your life, and how you treat others. What a wonderful role model you are.
Hey, Just wanted to say you are one of my favourites on the show. You seem genuinely nice and not catty like some of the others can be which is refreshing.
can't wait to see your wedding! You have one charming man!
I think that it was daplorable absolutely disgusting to kill that pig like that on pig on national tv like that. It should be against the law to do something like that so barbarrick on tv. Fine eat the poor pig but its wrong to abuse animals on tv. Its just wrong! Shame on you people!
hey darling i read online that your mother worked for madonna and madonna's brother! is this true!? andy ask her lol!
Come on roasted pig is found in many many cultures (think Hawaii and the South) all have pig roasts it is nothing specific only to Fl or Cubans.
Congratulations on your engagement! Your engagement ring is so beautiful and the dresses were amazing. You are my most favorite housewife! You are very beautiful and classy. The most refined out of all of them. I wish you all the happiness in the world. Love your mother!!! She is so funny… I love the flowers comment!
Best Wishes, Bea
Congratulations on your engagement and marriage Marysol. I think you are a breath of fresh air compared to all the other housewives. Lea's comment was very rude and I don't think she meant it in any bad way but she should really watch what she says or drink less. It was a very crass comment coming from her. I loved all 3 of your dresses. You looked amazing in all of them. I like your fashion style and the way you carry yourself...Don't let the show change you. All the best to you and Phillipe!
Lea was very rude with her 'green card' comment. She seems like a person who feels she can say or do whatever she wants without any repercussions. I hope she at least apologized.
If this is the wedding to last a life time, then why the rush to get married? I don't understand why you didn't just give yourself enough time to properly plan your wedding? Plus... we didn't see the trip to the attorney for the prenup. A A handsome younger man...a financially successful older woman... a relatively short dating time before the proposal...a rushed wedding...? Please say you took the necessary steps to covered your ass..ets.!
So happy for you, your engagement and decision to elope. I am so disguisted by Lea's response to your engagement. She didn't only disrespect you, Phillippe, but your love for each other by the idiotic remark about the green card. Not only did she say it, but repeated it. You took the high road and ignored her. Good for you! You stay the way you are and don't fall into their wicked ways!! congrats!
Marysol, you are such a sweet person and congratulations on your nuptials. I felt sorry for you when Lea made those remarks about your fiance' needing a green card. I felt it was uncalled for and very catty. I wish you all the best!
You know, every couple's engagement announcement should be met with a celebration but unfortunately you have Lea at your table. So very distasteful and classless. Congrats and I wish you well. By the way, good sense of humor or not- what Lea said was meant to sting and she even admitted she was saying out loud what everyone else was thinking. Regardless, if she was afriend she'd been discreet and voiced her concerns privately. Not humiliation at your expense. Don't let her get by with this. Make her own the statement and be accountable for its intent! Shame on you Lea!
Hi Marisol: I am so happy for you CONGRATS. Leah comment was out of limits and terrible, it just made her look bad. You know what who cares what she thinks, you got a great men on your hands and a beautiful life ahead of you with him. Enjoy it and do not let any body put you happiness down it is lots of negative, unhappy people every where.
MY SENTIMENTS, EXACTLY! I'M VERY UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THIS GUY, HE SEEMS TO BE AN OPPORTUNIST. JUST HOPE MARYSOL HAD A PRE-NUP!!
You are fabulous It is inspiring that such a successful business woman can be so nice and a good friend, classy woman. Keep it up and Congradulations on your numptials
Late in my reply - But you are the greatest on the show!!!! I really enjoy watching you, such a sweet personality!
Congratulations! I think you found the perfect man. You both are so good to each other it's nice to see. You're both kind people please stay that way, that's good TV.
Now Momma Elsa. YEAH! You're mom is fantastic! The best part is you can tell she really loves you.
