Alexia Can Dish it, But Can't Take It

Joanna explains why mentioned the rumor about Alexia's husband.

Rumors, Rumors, Rumors

I am sorry I didn't write last week’s blog and am late writing this past Thursday’s blog, but I have been so overwhelmed with work and traveling that I am mentally and physically drained, so I am writing this one blog regarding the Bimini trip.

I had high hopes and expectations that all the girls would bond and get along, but boy was I wrong. I should have known better, but I was definitely relieved I was sharing a house with my friends Lea, Lisa, and Karent. If I was stuck in the other house, I probably would have been miserable, except of course for Ana. I wouldn't have minded her sharing the house with us as I am on good terms with her also.

I felt really bad for Karent, because it seems since the moment some of the girls have met her they were obsessed about Rodolfo. They should know that Miami especially is filled with people that just love to speak nonsense and start rumors. I have heard so many things about me and Romain that we just laugh it off and feel bad for the ones starting the rumors. We know who we are and know that people would love to break us up and see us miserable and not successful, but the more they try, the worse it is for them. It gives us the drive to work harder and become more successful. Alexia should know better, since everyone knows Miami is filled with rumors. She shouldn't even bother with Karent and Rodolfo, since it’s obvious that Karent doesn't care what she has to say, but her obsession makes her keep talking about it. It was extremely obvious that Alexia was happy to show Karent the article about Rodolfo with some other woman. You can see it in her eyes when she told her about it. If she cared even a little about Karent, she would have left it behind in Miami and found a better time to bring it up -- not on a trip that I have planned for everyone so that we can have a fun time and try to become closer. She could at least respect that and wait to bring it up to Karent without ruining the trip.

Alexia shouldn't be upset about with me about the rumor relating to her husband. She can dish it out, but she can't take it? I was just making a point. Plus I love gays. Tons of my friends are gay, so what’s the big deal? I am glad that Lea and Marysol got everything off of their chest and hopefully it will last and they can be friends again. Time will tell. I will say, I am so impressed that Lea didn't complain that she got the kids room in our home with the smallest bed. That woman is very humble underneath all the diamonds, LOL!

Besides all the petty talk, jealousy, and gossip, I was very worried about Karent’s dad being sick and her inability to get to him. The weather was a disaster and all flights were cancelled. I am so glad that she finally got out of Bimini the next morning to be with her dad, because family is the most important thing in life -- not all the rumors and stupidity. We live once and should enjoy every day to the fullest, because you never know if tomorrow will come. There is no reason for all this hate.

Lea's Double Standards

Adriana explains why she was so surprised by Joanna and Lea's behavior.

I would like to start by saying that I tried my best to bond with Joanna and remain friendly after attending her bachorelette party and wedding. I truly was hoping for a budding friendship. All season long, she criticized me in her weekly blogs, criticized my wedding, and even then I took the high road and didn't engage in the low blows and continued hostility she has demonstrated towards me for a while now. However, I couldn’t stay quiet any longer when she started to attack my credibility. Enough is enough! I've learned that bullies like her will not stop the attack until you stand your ground. She showed me her true colors when she stated she wanted “to rip my head off.” Such aggressive behavior like that could no longer be ignored. Joanna is always stating that she is beautiful and because of that she thinks she has license to act UGLY!

Furthermore, I couldn't remain silent while she was attacking Lisa and being so cold to her and her struggle with infertility. Claiming that Lisa is a party girl and is always drinking is not the attitude of a friend. Joanna and Lisa had been friends and even had dinner together the night before and all was well between them, until Joanna decided to turn on Lisa... I was shocked, how can a friend blatantly attack her friend with such coldness?! She should not talk about things she knows nothing about!

Another shocker was to see Lea sitting there silently and not coming to Lisa's defense... She crucified me this season and did a complete character assassination of my person for not speaking up when Ana attacked her last year, so I was very surprised to see her do the exact same thing to her new bestie... Double standards, as usual!

In conclusion, don't judge others unless you have walked a mile in their shoes!
