It’s all about introductions, sex, romance... and insecurities
Watching Episode 2, you probably noticed my "red eyes" constantly, especially during the interviews. Well, I cried a lot during that time; I tried to put on a happy face, but there was a tragedy in the making. You will see as it unfolds. Looking back on it 5 months and 21 days later, it still brings tears to my eyes. It was a romance that ended in a tragedy like so many romances do. Enough about that for now. Let's put a smile on our faces and do what all “Housewives” do -- let’s talk about ourselves and “each other” (Housewife Qualification #2). You remember Housewife Qualification #1 -- let’s talk about "me."
So let’s get started !
We got through the non-introduction, introduction: Rodolfo meet Ana, Ana meet Rodolfo. We've survived the introduction of too much introduction -- Marta meet Romain’s private part and the surrounding forest. And then there is the shout-out to Lenny's boob clients’ introduction -- introducing Mrs. Lenny Hochstein, yes ladies, he's married! The evidence: photos and more photos of "wife" on the walls. We even got re-introduced to little miss piggy (Joanna, please -- red alert PETA). Where was Herman? Ooh, maybe he was around somewhere roasting another pig. (But I love him anyway. Every guy’s entitled to one vice…besides, otherwise he's perfect and has a picture-perfect wife, Alexia.)
And pirate ship, meet luxury yacht. I know you're thinking, “We’ve got a long way to go to get from here to there -- big closet, piano, and all.” No worries, you can do it pirate ship! I know just how you feel, I feel it too every time one of the bombshells (that would be the #RHOM bombshells) show up and showcase their picture perfect bodies as I try to zip up my jeans. So we all have a little maintenance to do (and a few little insecurities). So now that we've gotten through the introductions...
Omg, I can't handle the way you write Lea. I like you on the show but I can't read your blogs anymore. You're too much of a "know it all" and it is annoying. I do want to know why you hate Lisa so much. Is it because she bought the nicer house on Star Island and you resent her for it??
So what will you and hubby gain from exposing your life....probably nothing as life in MIami changes from day to day....if we are lucky enough we get old. Money, lots of money buys us a bad time or two. Money will never buy us the love of God
Love watching the show and how you put things in perspective...can't wait to see this week's episode.
Lea, I LOVE your energy! You would serve me as a good friend/mentor. I love your home, super huge though and one I won't ever be able to afford, but it's definitely amazing as well your taste. Sorry about any heartbreak you might've gone thru, knowing you - you'll bounce right back or have already. As for the other girls my fav's are Alex and Herman GREAT couple, Marisol and Ana, and definitely Christy though I know she pissed you off, but she's young its cool. She's not a bad girl. As for Adrianna, I don't know..........She tends to focus on other things when you're not w/her, and so it makes for alot of confusion. I don't think she's all that bad, but she needs to stop the gossiping, and then thinking all the time that the girls are "jealous" of her b/c she's "prettier"????? A bit immature. Outside of that, GREAT season, call me if you need a GREAT Executive Admin ;)! I would LOVE to work for you!
You do know, of course, that your program is watched as a comedy? I've never thought "you" people were harmful just pathetic. However, when you were talking about the trial your husband was trying and you were telling lies that you do hurt people. It's funny to watch but man are you pathetic.
Can't wait until Thurs nite. You are so classy! Season 2 is really looking awesome. It is so refreshing to see someone like you that relates to all. Love you.
OMG please tell me we don't have to see Herman abuse another pig this season!! I think the man should be forced to work in an animal shelter and maybe then he'd stop roasting those poor little innocent things.
Your blogs are so much better than the others'. I love the way you fill them with substantive thoughts and comments. Keep them coming!!!
Lea....it's funny how you thumb your nose @ the new housewives who you think are beneath you or not worthy of your attention! But Ms. Star Island......don't forget that you came from the same background as many of those women & would still be selling make-up @ a Neiman Marcus counter had you not met your older & very well-off "sugar-daddy"!!!!
I just re-read this blog and I love your sense of humor! You are still my favorite MH and a very classy lady! There is real substance to you, not just another pretty face! You make watching MH a really fun time!
What a great read - this blog was worth the time - insecurity is a part of everyone's soul and you called it Lea. Although you were a bit kind with a couple of the gals, one publicist in particular. Keep this coming. I do not enjoy reality TV but as a Miamian started to watch when the show began and got hooked in by you on the episode with the "Green Card" remark last season - good call.
I read your article in the Huffingtonpost. That was so cleverly written. Enjoyed it so much. So nice to see someone that can make a point with such humor. Love you on the HW, you are my favorite!
I loved this week's show. Most of all I loved the part with you and RJ watching Roy's trial. It portrayed the real you, a loving wife and mother. Rj is a handsome young man! I agree with the two people below, not knowing how you do all that you do--you don't just sit around and look pretty--and the one admiring your beautiful skin. Your beautiful, youthful skin is certainly a personal advertisement to your skincare line; I'm anxious to try it. I'm sorry, but some of the other beautiful women on the show are so shallow and vain and self-centered, unlike you. Looking forward to next week's show!
Loved your blog and we all love you!!!! I don't see how you do it all!!! Unlike Lisa H. with nothing to do but decorate her hubby's office! Looking forward to the rest of the season!! Go Lea!!!
Oh Ms. Black- thank you for being back! Loved seeing you and your son, he is precious! Like last season you are still my favorite and you look absolutely stunning! Your skin is just beautiful! One of my friends said you started your skincare line again, I'm definitely going to look it up and see what it could do for me- you look amazing!! Can't wait for next Thursday!!!
Ugh, I just love you. You don't suffer fools, and these women need someone like that in their midst!
I absoloutely enjoy reading your Blogs. You know exactly how to word things that gets the mind spinning. The humor that you add to it, continues to soften the blow, that you may or may not be trying to insinuate. You are the star of the show. A great role model to all. You have an amazing life that you have created by dedication and hard work. How can anyone not admire the fact that you have a career, run charities, take care of your family, pets, and now a handbag line. You are a true inspiration to many. The total package> and the Mayor of Miami! Damn you are a busy woman! Team Lea all the way!!!
Love the show tonite. Lea, you are the best. Loved your interaction with your son. You seem to really be a good mom. Looking forward to seeing more of you in Season 2. Love your look and the BLING!
