As I sit here and write this blog, so many things go through my mind. First of all, I can't believe it's over and I have survived two seasons, LOL! Next and most importantly, I think about how on a day like this last year I was sitting in a hospital next to my son Frankie not knowing whether he would eat, talk, or walk again. I realize how fortunate I am and thank God for all of my blessings and gifts that I no longer take for granted.
It may seem strange, but Frankie's accident has given me my greatest gift: it reminded me of the fragility and brevity of life. We all need to live every day to its fullest. The thought that I could have lost my son made me appreciate and enjoy every minute of every single day. This journey has taught me to cope with fear, strengthened my faith in God, emboldened my spirit, and restored my faith in humanity. I know that the only day that really matters is today! Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is but a dream -- there is just today!
Since you saw very little of me this season and practically nothing of my family because of life circumstances, I will start by sharing this. I wish I would have been strong enough to share my journey since the beginning, but it was too painful and devastating. When I was ready to let the cameras into the therapies we were practically done filming. I wanted to send a message of courage, faith, and hope and help those families that are going through similar situations. Doing the show at least part time let me disconnect and it forced me to dress up, do my hair and makeup.
You are a very nasty woman, taking full enjoyment out of giving Karent her bad news. Always screaming over people. I hope you see how bad you made yourself look on national tv.
You lack the ability to put yourself in other people's situation. The analogy Joanna was using went over your head because you had already decided to dislike Karent and out to destroy her. And nothing will change your evil course of action. Shame on you, Fang witch.
Alexia, you are gangsta!! The way you suddenly get aggressive and the in your face shouting and waving and pointing of the hands is so ghetto. It really shows who you really are.
You are gangsta!!
I want to start by saying your a very inspirational mom.... However I didn't think Karent deserved everything you had for her! You insinuated that she was coming from a bad place when it came to your son, that is a pretty big insinuation..........
First of all, what you've gone through in the last year would make most people go crazy but I don't understand why you would take your frustrations out on other people. The way you went after Karent was disturbing. The absolute glee you got from hurting her made me embarrassed for you. Elsa shamed you when she found out what you did to Karent in Bimini, but then you came on the reunion show and continued to act like the same she-beast you were all season. I thought you would come out, act like a decent human being and apologize to Karent for doing something so vicious to her, but instead you continued to act like a monster. I love how you continually interrupt and shout over people by saying "I'm talking now!!!!" when you won't let anyone finish a thought, much less a sentence. What you've gone through in the last year has been horrible, but it appears the only thing you got out of it was a need to make others feel as bad as you do. That's a shame. I will be fast forwarding through any of your scenes from now on.
I completely sympathize with you for the problems you are having with both your sons! I pray that they are both healed completely and soon!
However, knowing you were going to have to talk about such painful issues and come across as serious, why have your boobs out On Display like that?
Alexia, hold your head up. You've come through a trying ordeal. Many comments here aren't kind and say things like "you were mean all season" ~ even though you weren't even on all season! The very people who accuse you of being nasty, are doing exactly what they say they don't like. Go figure. Wishing the best for your family.
You keep telling people that it's your turn to speak, but you constantly yap, yap, yap and never let anyone else get a word in edgewise. You're so jealous of Karent it's comical. Hope you don't come back - if you do, Bravo loses this viewer.
I love you girl <3 Don't even listen to all of these haters that act like they know you. They're just jealous of your success. Keep your head up and always remember who you are. Never forget that God would never throw an obstacle into our life if we couldnt overcome the hardship. Every experience in life makes us stronger and better people. I wish you much luck and I wish for your family to have peace. I think all of these idiots commenting on your blog forgot that YOU made the decision to become a reccurring cast member due to the health of your son, and I cant believe the terrible things they've said to you after all you've been through in the past year. Your son will remain in my prayers. I hope to see more of you in the future, You were my favorite in season 1 and that hasnt changed! #TEAMALEXIA #CUBANBARBIE
Alexia, watching you on the reunion II, you're a very, very angry woman. I mean, angry and mean spirited.
And btw... Joanna didn't accuse Herman of being gay. I don't think anyone really believes that. She was giving an analogy that there are rumors that one should not believe or discuss on the show. I think her point was a perfect analogy. A rumor like that should have been kept quiet. No one needs to hear a rumor which could hurt Herman or your family. By the same token, you did not need to bring up the rumors or insist on proving them true since they so obviously were going to hurt Karent. On the show you defended Herman, but Joana's point was to illuminate your blindness on how you were being mean, obviously by your reactions you showed that you are still blind to what you have done, because instead of having an epiphany and apologizing to Karent, instead you defended your husband's sexuality, which was so unnessesary. Herman should have been left out of it, and so should Rodolfo and Ana's love affair or fake affair have been! Why would you believe what he says over her story anyway? Maybe she believed it was real and he was the one who pushed her into the idea of starting their relationship again in front of the cameras.
Alexia you were awesome on the reunion shows. I don't understand what the heck these people are writing about Karent. Any Hispanic person would see right through Karent and her phony joker smiles. There is absolutely no real ness in her. Now if you call class, a back stabbing, two face women that goes around with gossip in her mouth all the time, must not be Hispanic. Throw her a Hialeah, little Havana housewife and see if she would use that smile. I bet she would behave completely different. Thanks for keeping it real, but please please for the love of God, stop calling yourself Cuban Barbie. You sound full of yourself, you know better than that chica.
Alexia, as a fellow Cuban, I am so disappointed in the decisions you made regarding Karent this season. Your seemingly ruthless actions were far beneath my previously held opinion of you. Last season you seemed like a peace maker and this season you were cruel to Karent and appeared to have a vendetta against her. You seemed jealous of her little romance or her little lie. You have everything going for you, so why so much energy to embarrass her for either exaggerating her relationship to get on the show or for being the unfortunate victim of a Latin lover leading her on? I'm scratching my head over your reactions and you crusade against Karent, which continued even on the reunion. Take a step back and watch all the shows. Maybe you are too caught up in what you think SHE is to realize what YOU have become!
To have gone through so much pain and disappointment this year, it is beyond me how you could act the way you did all season. With just the brief moments we saw you, it is telling how much negative feedback you are getting. God does not like ugly. Shape up Alexia, you are too beautiful for this.
Alexia, I think you are an amazing woman but the way you joined the other haters of Karent was just mean and not classy. You're actions during the reunion with Karent was not classy.
You are a beautiful woman and successful.... don't let anyone make you lessor.
I am a fan and will still be...
I think that it was a very traumatic experience that happen with our son and Karnet was an easy target. Even if you dislike her, the level of vitriol you spewed was over the top. I think you took your stress out on her. As you look back I hope you can see that and make ammends.
I really really don't like you what-so-ever. I have no respect for you as a woman. PERIOD.
I never write on these things but I just had too!!! First of all the whole point with Karent and Alexia is that Alexia has been friends with Rodolfo for many many years! and Karent never acknowledged Alexia. So for alexia to go and ask for advice to show that her friend Rodolfo was cheating on her is HELPING Karent not trying to be mean to her. She was doing the right thing regardless if it was her friend rodolfo cheating on Karent. She was being a woman and trying to protect a fellow woman. and Karent thought of it as mean, cause of all people who knows Rodolfo well she should have listened to Alexia.
and for people to even talk about Frankie is disgusting to me!!!! No one knows what she went through. So to bring it up at a Venue party where its her one chance to mingle and be with friends is so out of place! Alexia has dealt with a lot this year and I don't blame her at all for speaking louder trying to speak up and get her point across. Rodolfo was at the hospital visiting Frankie many many times! and so was Ana and Marysol. Karent was never there. It doesn't matter cause she could care less if Karent was there but the fact that KArent is trying to say she was there supporting her is pissing her off.. it would piss me off too! This is so ridiculous! All the women obviously have strong personalities! so they are going to clash! not everyone understands each other. WHO CARES and move on! but do not bring personal family issues that really are true and affect a lot of peoples lives.
I said my peace, talk all the bad stuff you want, but Alexia is so strong and words will not affect her whatsoever.
please stop being so mean to Karent! She has been nothing but gracious, classy and nice to everyone. She minds her own business and has been so polite all season. You can learn a few things from her.
@manhattanboy85 Agree!! U totally ruin the appearance or thought that you are classy in any way when u over react the way u do,!
who is herman? why did you tae that newspaper on the trip with you? EXACTLY , so you could rub it in karents face. just like audrieanna did at lisa's party, you thought that out long ad hard and made the decision to hurt her as much as possible.thatis whatmakes it even worse is that ou planned it and actually thought it was a good idea, that make you the wort kind of woman to be around, and for the record, you might be the boss at work but your not the boss of the other houswives and yelling louder doesnt make you right.
Good God, this mean woman is coming on to the reunion tomorrow and showing her teeth. Back off from Karent. You will never, ever be on her level. She has more class than you ever will.
Alexias - I hope to see you more next session. You are by far one of the prettiest, fashionable, well spoken, fun spirited person on the show. Keep being you, that's what we love.
Sharronh85You call talking over others and telling others to shut up well spoken? Ok, whatever.
What show ar you watching. Alexias has done nothing but try to inflict pain on other people. You live in a different reailty than most people.
@Sharronh85 Who are you referring to? Well spoken? Fun spirited? Fashionable? Prettiest? If you are referring to Alexia Echevarria then you're definitely not watching the same show.
Sharronh85 Yes! I agree,,, you are lovely to watch have fun and dress fabulously. And you are wonderful to watch be a good mother. You show a lot of nurturing love to your boys that a lot of young women can look up to. Do lots of that and no more mean girl! Please! I wan't last year's classy, Alexia back.
@Sharronh85 What show were you watching? I'd like to see that one. In the show I watched Alexia was a mean spirited harpie who enjoyed inflicting pain on Karent and couldn't carry on a conversaton unless she was yelling with her eyes bulging out almost as far as her cleavage. I couldn't stand the Alexia I watched but the one you watched sounds like a hoot.
So, upon reflection it's having not shared your personal travails you regret, not your actual behavior on the show? See, that is a problem. Instead of having a hard look at how you acted and what you actually did, you think your life could've been instructive to us viewers, therapeutic even! I do not believe for once sec that would have been possible coming from a person in the head space you inhabit. You are in la la land. There can be no message of courage, faith and hope from someone so full of hate.
Alexia, yeah, your 'airtime' did not show you favorably, yet you still continued on despite the horrendous issues you were dealing with. This has probably been one of your worst years - dealing with trauma of that magnitude changes EVERYTHING. Makes a mother crazy for awhile.
Good luck to you and your family. So happy Frankie is doing better and better!
Go snuggle up to your cash register-- the kachings from your gossip mongering. That is how you make your living right? Mining dirt?
wow you are happy with how the season ended? what you being portrayed as an evil mean girl along the lets crush other women's lives train of adrianna, ana and marisol? you have to be that blonde to think you had a season worth being proud of. you and the other mentioned are mean spirited and try to ruin other people's lives, it was gross behavior and you guys ruined any fan base you ever had.
wow....I saw the first part of the reunion today and the promo for next week...
I even like Adriana
I dislike you and I hope they take you and Ana out of the show.
Money doesnt buy class!
Alexia, I previously considered you a woman of high class and stature, and thought of you a role model as a professional. This season, I saw a completely different side of you, stooping to whole new level of low and pettiness. Your behavior was disgusting, feeding into tabloid publications with your "evidence". What was your real intention?, to protect Karent or to hurt her? And your behavior towards Karent at your event was awful. One thing I will say is that you appear to be a great mother, maybe you should keep your focus there.
After watching you this 2nd seaon I think that you are one of the meanest people on reality television. On one episode you said you left your manners in Cuba...well you need to go and get them immediatey!!
At time when you could have used everyone's support, you managed to make everyone dislike you.
Hope your attitude changes next season
I really wonder how u feel Alexia about this comments... I think u need to take a step back and realize what type of person you are... Not everybody has to like you, true, but look at the amount of people that feel discusted by you. What a shame.
I can't believe how disgusting you people are being towards Alexia. She talking about her son and being thankful that he is alive after his tragic accident. How dare all of you turn a spiritual statement into something, so awful.
Wow!! How disgusting, disgraceful, and pitiful you guys are!!
Watch the episode where Karent is telling Alexia that she was praying for her son and then tell me who acted disgusting, disgraceful and pitiful.
taffi D_Boii21 I saw that episode and as person that often prays for others and offers prayers and would probably say that too....what is the problem with Karent saying that? Am I missing something or are people a little too defensive and overly sensitive, looking for offense when it isn't there?
D_Boii21 Obviously you were not watching the same show 99% of us were, if you were you would not have written this.
It is a shame that you have to be so hateful and petty. You have the opportunity to provide viewers with what it takes to be a business woman and loving mother but you just come across as a spiteful and judgemental classless person.
