So I hoisted myself off the recliner and moseyed on over to the computer room at the retirement village to write this, my first RHOM blog. I am happy to report that I did not break a hip in the process. Now, let’s put this “older woman” jab into perspective shall we? First, let me say that the age disparity between Karent and I can hardly be described as a generation gap, regardless (or in Karent-speak “irregardless”) of what anyone says.
In my tender years I have managed to become a lawyer, an author, a chef, build a successful practice, enjoy a 20-plus year marriage, and, most importantly, be a mom to two extraordinary young women. If every smile or every tear I shed in the process contributed to an unfilled, un-botoxed line here or there, then I welcome them. They are badges of honor earned throughout a very fulfilling lifetime. I would say Karent has some catching up to do, wouldn’t you?
Ana, You are such a breath of fresh air. You have so many talents and I wish you would do a recipe book..or share a few with us.
The scene with your X at the office was so touching...men can be such......men, at times!!
Please don't be a bully like Alexia (who I thought was off the show) and Adrianna. They are trash. You are still new enough that you don't have a reputation. Please keep it that way. You seem nice. Don't get caught up in the mean girl thing. It is quite unbecoming of a lawyer and a successful one at that!
foreverminnie Speaking of mean girls..shut up!! You're sitting behind a computer where no one can see you JUDGE you while you say such things..I don't think you 'know' any of these people..you see a part of them that is edited. Calm down...
First of all, Karent is 40 and lives with her parents so who cares what she thinks?! I know..it's cultural, as she explained, but I still find it bizarre. Especially when her "boyfriend" spends the night and has breakfast with her and her parents. It must be awkward since her mother hates him.
Second, I think you are an excellent writer. I enjoy reading your posts and hope you continue to author more books. You certainly have a great writing voice and strong sense of humor. Kudos to you!
And please post a vegetarian Cuban recipe!
cassandra305 but you have to understand if you love your parents and they love you(sincerely) in the HISPANIC culture is not odd for your parents to live with you. Plus thats Karents house not her parents.
I have to admit the "nice to meet you hug" from the mad texter was my "laugh out load moment". Men can be so simple and painfully transparent. It's like a small child who bats his eyelashes and thinks he can get out of any situation by ignoring it or or distracting from it. As a woman, maybe you can dredge up the sympathy for Karent, that she is in this situation, to just rise above what seems to be his sleeziness. I would think that she will find out the hard way who is telling the truth, you don't need to defend yourself to anyone, or enter the fray. As women, a lot of us have been kicked in the teeth by someone we fell in love with. ot
s a shame to have to watch this play out with a fellow "sister" ....
The fact that she couldn't stop talking about you, says it all. I couldn't believe that she actually talked about your age, if in fact you are older than her, which you can't tell, its only by a couple of years. That being said you look better than her because you look natural as of her, yes I think she is pretty but in a very made up way just like 99% of Colonbian women, no insult intended as I have good friends that are Colonbian. You are beautiful and Rodolfo,really, I don't think that's even up for debate. All I can say is that I believe 100% that it is true about his texts to you, why not?? In my opinion she makes her self look bad, she actually looks like a love sick puppy detras de un hombre. Nothing against her, I have great respect for women like her but she is not doing herself any favors.
You are older than her??????????? Good god, you would never know! Good luck to you- I think you are great already.
Ana! I'm in law school now and I'm constantly looking for inspiration!! Thank you for reminding us women that just because we are seeking higher education doesn't mean that we have to always be cerebral and boring!!! I love that you still put your family first too and are also a chef!!! You're the immortal one Ana and my new girl-crush! I look forward to watching you this season! :)
That comment was silly & catty! You are successful & beautiful! You are a great addition to the show.
You are a very beautiful woman. Not sure you are as good in the man department but that's for another conversation. I'm not sure why the other housewife said that you are a "older woman" when she looks around the same age. Must we start already!!!
Who cares what that indian has to say your gorgeous :-) she's just insecure and that guys just using her ..
You are so gorgeous and spirited yourself. Talented and naturally funny are some of your assets. I am looking forward to seeing a lot of you this season. You never disappoint.
You seem like the most grounded and real woman on the show. I like you already and enjoy how you turned that "older woman" comment into a joke in your blog. You look great!
You are the most intelligent and sexiest of the women. You are not fake in any way.
I too have such a similar relationship with my ex husband. You are one person who doesn't drink the "kool aid" that many women drink . We must help all of them.
The last season sucked and I didn' think another season would even make sense....but I was wrong. The changes are great and you are my favorite so far...then Joanna....this should be interesting.
Listen I think your gorgeous woman, who wears her age well. Who cares what these Botox , filler filled fake woman.. I mean really what r you teaching your children, ur natural beauty , we really don't know what the consequences of those fillers r.. We own our wrinkles, I where mine with pride, and know I aged as god intended me to be.. Stay classy!!
Wow, what a breath of fresh air!
We need more Latinas like you on television. You are a phenomenal woman, it's unfortunate that it didn't work out between you are your husband. The great thing is that you are still young, beautiful, and very smart so you will not have any problems finding another person to fill that void.
I really admire you and hope to accomplish even half of what you've accomplished in your lifetime.
Keep working hard and be yourself. Don't worry about karent and the drama. You are beautiful and amazing! You look great! Find a man that enjoys you
Ana, I think you're a great addition to the show! Lovin you so far.
As for your relationship i don't find it unorthodox at all, my parents
were the same way and still are. Also as for the "old" comment
Karent looks older than you so i'm not sure what shes talking about.
Ana, I think you are actually one of the most beautiful women on the show because you are one ofthe most natural looking real woman. Not to bash plastic surgery or botox or anything, but you look very natural and beautiful and that to me is harder o achieve regardles of age or money. I must have missed the age comment but either way, you're beautiful! don't let her try to get to you. :)
you also seem very real on the inside.
The older woman this was hilarious did you see when she was getting her make up done you are smart, beautiful, and Sexy.
We were surprised at the "older woman"comment as well..My sister and I looked at each other like"are you kidding me"...We thought Karent was older than you
1.It is great to see a divorced couple remain family and friends. Wonderful for your girls, and also a gift to retain a long friendship and closeness even if the terms change.
2. Karent looked quite foolish attacking you on age. You are attractive and accomplished, and look fantastic!Jealousy is not a good look. Oh well!
