Don't Shoot the Messenger

Karent explains the "older woman" comment and shares her side of the texting drama.

After observing Ana and Alexia discussing the event at Smith & Wollensky, I must disagree with Ana in that I was not nervous or apprehensive meeting her. I was curious to finally meet the woman that has been flirting and texting with Rodolfo. (By the way, I have seen the texts from Ana to Rodolfo and vice versa with my own eyes.) I don't know anything else about Ana, and I look forward to getting to know her better and creating my own opinion about her instead of listening to all the rumors that have been said about her. Regardless of the fact that she was interested in him (I must say I can't blame her). After all, he is very good looking! I still want to come to my own conclusions. I believe she deserves that much. I would also like to clarify about the "older woman" comment. Don't shoot the messenger! I was just stating what was said by Rodolfo regarding Ana, and the fact that he is not interested in older women. Is she ancient? No, of course she's not. She is actually a very beautiful woman. But in his eyes, she is too old for him and his taste. Enough said about that...

Moving on to the couples massage. Rodolfo spends most of his time living out of suitcases and in hotels. I thought it would be nice to surprise him with a romantic massage, as he always does romantic gestures for me.

Lisa going to visit Lenny at his office was hilarious! I don't blame her for making sure that all his patients remember he is very happily married! She is a gorgeous woman and actually should be the model in all of his exam rooms! I would love to see the picture with the nurses all Photoshopped to have Lisa's face! Pictures of ex-girlfriends in the office is a no-no.Joanna interacting with her sister is very precious. As she states in one of her interviews, her mom was a very hard worker, and it was Joanna who practically raised Marta. The love they have for each other is evident, and I love how she will defend and protect her no matter what. A relationship is hard work no matter what, but add in a sister who is Joanna's life, and it can definitely put a strain sometimes on the intimacy of a relationship. (Not to mention cause some interesting and sticky situations, LOL.) But it comes with the territory when you put family first. When you are a family oriented person, you make sacrifices that will benefit your family core, and at the end of the day, it will, I believe, make you more appreciative of the people that love you, and vice versa.

Ana interacting with her daughters is interesting. It appears as though the daughters might not be very fond of Ana's new "boyfriend." It's nice to see that they can be friends and laugh together, but when Ana asks her daughter if he is coming to dinner... I think I draw the line when it comes to a daughter talking about her father's sex life with the soon to be ex-wife. TMI!

I think it is refreshing to see Lea interacting with her son. She is a very hands-on mom, and it definitely shows her softer side. She is actually calm and doesn't sound like a screaming cat (thanks, Andy, for the reference). It's wonderful seeing her act normally... I knew she had it in her! JK!

I think Frederic may have regretted taking Adriana and Lisa to the boat show, because it's going to cost him a pretty penny. Haha! The yacht was gorgeous, but a woman will always get more expensive ideas. You go, girl! Not sure if I could actually live on a boat, but if it works for her, why not? I think it’s awful what Adriana had to put up with regarding her ex-husband, but it seems like Frederic has stepped up to the plate, and she finally deserves to be happy and learn to trust in him and her relationship. He appears to be very in love with her, and although it’s hard to dive in again into a marriage, I think that in life you must learn to take risks, because if you don’t, you will never know what could come out of it. Life is about taking chances.

Marysol is hard to understand, because she has a mom that is some sort of psychic, witch, etc, but then she goes to someone else for a "consultation." Why would she need to go anywhere else?

My life is very busy, and Liza meeting with me at my office to inform me of all my future events shows how I can not only promote my practice but also, by attending all these events, how I can bring to light and create more awareness for the foundation that I started over two years ago, the Sharing Smiles Foundation, in which I offer free dentistry to underprivileged children. Some women have a problem with me having a publicist, but they obviously don't know my goals and involvement. They just criticize because of a lack of anything else to do with their own lives.

It seems funny how some of the ladies are so interested in my relationship with Rodolfo, when they should clearly be more interested and worried about their own relationships. Hmmm...Alexia obviously knew that we were in a relationship, because we've run into her and Herman out on the town previously. So the fact the she did not know that we were in a relationship makes me wonder if she has a very short term memory!

Now moving on to Ana talking about Rodolfo texting her. She states that she has never PUBLICLY posted anything on his Facebook page. She neglected to mention private messages on Twitter and phone texts. Nice play on words...

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!
