I apologize for not blogging last week, but it was an even crazier week than my usual. I have so much going on and so much I want to get done at home and in the office, and I'm not good with delegating. I'm also looking at schools for Frankie for January, and it's been a bit disheartening. On top of my busy and tight schedule, I had to make time for the reunion last week. Traveling to New York with Elsa for our reunion was lots of fun. She's afraid of flying, and Marysol left too early so I was more than happy to accompany her. I have a great relationship with her. She reminds me of my mom in her spirituality, wisdom, energy, and experience. Marysol and I are also similar in that we are codependent on our mothers.
Which leads me to how this episode opens up, with Elsa and Marysol's sleepover pajama party. Loved it! That's something I've done with my mom and enjoy. My mom also always complains about the freezing temperature in my house. LOL!
Leaving to Bimini for a weekend was not easy for me. It takes a lot of planning and structuring in my home. Herman didn't love the idea, but he understood it was important to have some alone time with the girls. I was excited to disconnect from my reality and routine and have some fun in the sun and connect with the girls.
This is a late comment, but from what I've seen on this episode I think Alexia's behavior was totally uncalled for. To take such pleasure in making someone else unhappy was just evil. I do hope you are not on next season, of all the girls I found your presence the most toxic to the group and you think way too highly of yourself.
You are delusional. If you're so certain she already knew, then why the need to tell her? You make no sense at all. Just more nonsense excuses for your nastines. You are a nasty, ugly person inside and out.
Hi! I really liked you the first seaon. I was surprised with your anger with Karent. I think such a thing should be discussed in private, not like you did it.
Wow I am surprised at some of these comments. I don't think you are mean at all. I don't think it was good judgement on your part to bring the article to Bimini but I don't think you had evil intent as some seem to think in their comments. Karent has been awful to a lot of the women, and she accuses others so quickly of doing the same to her because that is all she knows. I wish the very best for you and your family and hope your son heals well. You are fun to watch and I hope you stay on the show. As I mentioned on Ana's blog I like to watch you ladies, it is nice to see some that are not so out to create drama.
Alexia...You need to stop being so hysterical and hostile towards your cast members. Due to your lack popularity … your poor husband is getting a bad rap… which I deeply think he does not deserve. Thanks to him you have a beautiful lifestyle and financial stability and he seems to be a great person and a good father figure for your two boys... Stop pulling other peoples skeleton out of the closet it might come back and bite you in the ass….BE NICE stop putting other people down and going out of your way to hurt people’s feelings. It shows in your face that you’re enjoying their misery…What is wrong with you??????
I think instead of worrying about karents lovelife you should pay more attention to your own family.
Alexia, you are a mean and no matter how you try to sugar coat is, you simply hate Karent and want to see her fall.
You are not a mean person and you have nothing to be jealous about ! It is what it is, a Realty Show and there has to be Drama ! If everything was handled "privately" and 'discretely" we woudn't be watching ! KarenT is not an innocent victim she is a "tarrua" and the way she outted Joanna by making Joe Francis admit to sleeping with both sisters on nationaltv was much worst! Im not surprised that this didn't "bother" Joanna, catching Romain cheating didn't seem to bother her much either ! She cooked him a 3 course meal !
Why do you care one bit about Karent's boyfriend? she's not your friend and it just seems like you do this to hurt her. Whats wrong with you? you have better things to occupy your time with!!! How would you feel if everyone referred to your "husband as fake (or perhaps gay)"? Mind your own business and try SUPPORTING other women instead of trying to tear them down!!!
You are a mean girl. You have no class, you are so boring you see joy in bullying. You are a very miserable liar.
Quit making excuses for your inexcusable behavior!!! You honestly want us to believe that you confronted Karent on her behalf and that she needed to know the truth?? SURE!!! I bet you also think Teresa Giudice never called her sister a stripper either, huh? It must be miserable being as insecure as you are.
Bravo pleeeeeese let big bird go! Can't stand her! I hear sesame street wants her back though!
I'm going to give you a few lessons on what being a genuine compassionate person mean.
1. Although you may not like a person or some of the things they do, you should still have compassion when that person is hurting.
2. Never kick a person when their down (your son never learned this).
3. Always put yourself in that persons shoes, because it could one day be you.
Just because you have money does not make you more respected or respectable. You need to
do some soul searching as to why you don't like yourself, because the way you consistently go after Karent proves she has qualities you envy.
Alexia to me is definitely a bitter woman. Maybe that's why she's all alone. It's almost scary the intensity in which she addresses her family with as well. CONTROL CONTROL CONTROL... It leaves no room for ever knowing true connection with others with all that funk-a-dunk in between. She's one of those people I wouldn't even give the time of day to, let alone any importance.
Love you Alexia, KarenT can dish it but she just can't take it ! Maybe she did what Joanna did when she caught her man cheating..... cooked him a 3 course meal !
If I were you I would be ashamed to show my face. Have you seen or read what EVERYONE thinks of you???? And they are right! Time for you to say goodbye. You are going to have alot to answer for someday. Dont think you have learned anything in your life, even after the tragedy you have had. Wake up call as to whats important and where beauty is. You chose to be ugly every chance you get! Good Luck the rest of your life cause Karma is a REAL thing that you may want to be very afraid of given what you have done and intentions you have had
loved you first season, but this year you have really changed you and Adriana are the mean girls and the most cruelest, negative, twisted, ladies! how you both smile one min then "act concerned" the next (we see right threw both of you) Lisa was right on point with her comment you wanted to see the pain on Karent's face and then you write i thought Lisa would tell her later then she went in to tell her and you went in to make sure she told the story right!?!?! omg! if you thought Lisa was telling her later why weren't you concerned with her getting the story right later? the fact is you could have cared less the story is the same no matter how you say it, he's been cheating on you how could Lisa mess that up!? Get real you wanted to see her in pain and so did Adriana thats why she followed right behind with a smile on her face too, and Karents the joker!? she should be praised and given a metal for being able to smile while you girls stalk her out like injured pray and striking at every chance you get to get at her like vultures
I have noticed that you, Ana and Marysol, have a hard time smiling and generally look unhappy and deeply troubled about something in your lives...we have heard about your challenges on the show, and it would be typical for anyone in your place to show sadness, but why be on a tv show at the same time you are dealing with family issues of the magnitude you have it? There is bitterness peeking through, and viewers are having a hard time understanding why with so much that is surely required of you at home, that you would put yourself in a place to reveal another couples relationship as a fraud.....we see Karent crying over the reveal, and as far as we, the viewers know, this was news to her......why allow for this bad karma drama to unfold around you....in case no one has told you, your childrens moments are precious.....when you are on camera with these women, that means you are away from the people who need you most...this show cannot be worth that....you can't possibly need this exposure, because it is not favorable to you...please smile more....
Alexia you did the right thing and it was obvious that Karent had issues with her "boyfriend". For all the viewers who are on Karent's side, think about this: Why is a woman who has NEVER been married on the show as a housewife? Both Karent and Joanna do not belong on the show and conveniently having a "boyfriend" or "fiancee" does not qualify any woman as a houseWIFE. Food for thought Bravo.
By your definition, a number of hw wouldn't qualify. Have a look around. As for your reasoning consider this: the next time you have an "issue" wiv someone, I hope a not so good friend confronts you wiv it in front of, say, friends and fam in a crowded restaurant. Something big, like your Paris (playin on your Helen of Troy hash) isn't all he says. As your name suggests (Trojan war ensued) you're a little trouble maker aren't you! Rhetorical, no need to respond.
OMG! Agree! Here's my criteria...wearing heels and more than one coat of mascara mandates no cocktail party gangups....in fact I cannot recall one chaotic screaming match with Martinis in ages in my world. Oh that's right not ever.
There are only three housewives this season who are not really housewives...Karent, Joanna, and Kenya. And the word is "with" not "wiv". Do you say aks instead of ask as well? Trouble? You better believe it!!!
Angriana....why did you leave her off the list...shacked up is not a 'real' housewife, either.
ooooh, a little racist are we? Do you not get the nuance and subtle self deprecatin humour? You're not quite all there because of your anger, hellion on wheels. Must be tuff not bein the brightest bulb but here's a tip, don't call attention to it! Do read on, the other comments are most elucidatin!
@Rockerman @hellionoftroy13 A few examples to back you up....Bethany,Carole, Gretchen, kandi, there are more but I really don't like them so I won't name them. Anyway, people keep bringing this, "they aren't married" argument up for bashing one of the women. Look , it's 2012, housewife has a whole new meaning ! I think that is the point BRAVO is making. Think outside of the box people! As for alexia, I think she is a hyena that just enjoys a good feeding frenzy to give her life meaning.
Isee Rockerman hellionoftroy13
if being married is a criterion, then we wouldn't have Carole or Sonja or the Countess (NYC), or Kim or Taylor or Brandi (BH) or Camille (what an excellent HW she was)...
@Rockerman ................ I always enjoy your insightful comments. when u exchange the th for a v, it comes off like u are teasing the less educated, maybe I'm wrong, just my opinion.
You are creating some really terrible karma for yourself. You were a bully and very spiteful towards Karent. You should have shown some class and discretion and told her in private or even off camera. Shame on you Alexia.
If Karent did indeed "play" the victim, it's because she has been one this entire season. You made her your running target. This is not the "Hunger Games," but if it were, she'd win. Have you noticed the votes are 99.5/100 in her favor!
@HennyPenny Excellent point! Karent didn't make herself the victim. Alexia along with the other jealous women decided to make her one. To bad the old green eyed monster got the best of them.
HennyPenny My hats off to Karent for not playing into Alexia's cruel setup !! Just watching how you all were sitting around like a bunch of vulture's waiting to attack her was scary enough ! She handled it like a lady (whither she knows of Rodolfo's cheating or not), she did not want to discuss it with THEM, only her real friends !! Who can blame her.
Alexia, i'm not a big fan of Karent's 'smile' but i think how you and the other girls approached her with the news was pretty cruel. Clearly, she didn't know that she was being cheated on and i don't think anyone deserves to be humiliated in that fashion publicly by her boyfriend then again by this group of girls.
Why do I get the feeling every criticism just rolls over you? You have an arrogance and god complex that makes you believe you are all knowing, seeing and entitled. You never got to know Karent. You resented her from the start. And what is with I'm not a full timer but you are somhow at the crux of every blow out? Go away, stay away.
Alexia - what BS. You did it for one reason only, HURT! You don't like Karent, have not hid that fact, and now are concerned for her mental well being? Please. You are a bully and Karma is a bitch. This could have waited until after the trip in a more personal setting. You should take some of your money and buy some class and a heart. So disgustied at the show right now. . You had a piece of very hurtful information and used it in a twisted way. You had a close circle of followers too that should also be ashamed of their actions on national television. I don't think scene like this bring out the best of your show. Very disgusted! Some people need to be truly devastated to understand the pain they can afflict on others!
Wow! You're behavior is very ugly and the way you girls treat Karent is terrible. If I were your parents or children I would be ashamed of you.
You claim to be "above" certain behavior but yours is worse.
Alexia, I was under the impression you were a lady; however the way you revel in another persons pain is just sinister...you know darn well that you are not a friend of karent's...you clearly dislike the woman and no one knows why or where it comes from...you should apologise to karent and your family for embarrassing them on national television...a lot of fans are disappointed that you participated in this cruel and unfriendly act, but i'm sure if you apologised...genuinely, karent would forgive you.

With the exception of the "model", Karent has no friends or allies in this group. So why expect her to react to what you said? You all didn't do it to give her the heads up. You all did it to hurt her. It is very true she is a social climber. She doesn't think before she says or does some things. Which is why fans haven't embraced her. But you brought up the issue knowing the others would be on your bandwagon and of course press her until you hoped she broke. You are assuming a lot that the relationship was for the cameras. What you have done is lost fans and created more for her.
Once you told to the other women the awful truth about Karent's boyfriend (with exultant spark in your eye), you were knitting cobweb around Karent like spiders. Alexia, you can't get enough of bad karma, right? I honestly think that you need a therapy...no, better get yourself an exorcist.
What you did to Karent was so mean. Granted, she isn't my favorite character but ambushing her like that in front of all the other ladies was horrible. It said more about you than it did about her.
BTW... some people smile when they are nervous or upset. Why does Karent's beautiful smile bother you so much? I think you're jealous of her. She is a self made , beautiful woman and you're just a bottle blonde wanna be.
JanicePrado yes, Karent employs a strategy not to escalate conflict and she is pretty good at it. She doesn't feed the trolls.
Alexia you should be ashamed....you were salivating waiting to pounce on Karent. Do you have any cognition at all of how you portray yourself? Absolutely loving to hurt anyone you don't like. I couldn't believe how excited you were to get everyone all geeked up about it. How did that work for you Alexia, happy now? Oh, and just keep talking. talking, blogging, bloggin and maybe someone will believe your lame excuses.Do you?
