The Miami I know is stunningly beautiful wrapped up in a diversified and vibrant culture. We attract people from all around the globe. People come from all over the world come to vacation where we get to live (sometimes without even a green card). I really love those people, because they will pay any price to be part of paradise that we sometimes take for granted.

As the show opens with Mama Elsa and Marysol, we find that the psychic (the one that “can connect" psychic) predicts Marysol will meet women full of gossip (like there are any other kinds of women?). Oh, and we know they're new "friends" not old "friends." (Whew! Glad I am off the hook on that one!) Wonder what the psychic says about Phillipe?  Hmmm, I’m still stuck at Marysol wishing she had her eye on something for her anniversary as Mama asks what she’s gonna’ do with her wedding ring and predicts more marriages. Did Mama not get the memo? We don’t talk about that. Oh well, what goes on in the jewelry store stays in the jewelry store, or at least that’s what I always hope for.

Then we go to Ana with the daughters she doesn't want to leave the nest. How cute is that husband, ex-husband, best friend, dad, partner-in-business man that has quite the way with words? I've heard of putting barbeque sauce on a lot of things, but… well, let’s just leave it at that. And I now realize why I prefer air kisses and hugs to handshakes (thank you, Ana, for that reminder).
