EVERYONE'S GONE WILD
It's party time! Galas and fundraisers, more tits and ass, drama, conflict, he said/she said, they said, and more.
But don't put your stilettos up on the couch just yet. This party is just getting started.
This was a busy time for me between the gala preparation, out of town guests, Roy being gone, our commuting and his return home, RJ's activities, and my abnormal-normal life -- it was fast, fun and full of surprises.
Let's start with Lisa's charity event, the one where I looked "hilarious."
It's amazing how close to naked people will get at a Miami party, but when it comes to stripping people down to who they really are, it's one big sh--storm...uh, snowstorm.
Congrats to Lisa for a fun party, action packed (maybe too much action, but let's come back to that later). Hope she raised a lot of money. I'm just trying to understand a couple of things, so help me out here. I recall Lisa being very clear that she "doesn't agree with people talking about people behind their backs." From the first episode until now (7 weeks), she's never missed the opportunity to ridicule, backstab, or make condescending remarks about me on the show and in her blogs.
BTW, my "hilarious" comment (made while hugging her) was a compliment about how over-the-top fabulous her lingerie outfit was. (Clarification since she seems to misinterpret my snark -- Hilarious, of course, being the new fabulous.) And did I mention, once again, we get to see her hot body? Surprise!
Lea, you are a rockstar. Seriously – I only watch this series to see what you will say next. And it always surprises me! Keep on being who you are, some people truly love you for it!
Lisa may have you beat on looks but at least you are semi-intelligible on some of the decisions you are making. Just learn to stray from your ego and think about what will benefit others more.
Drama is never fun – why don’t the girls realize this? Why keep on dragging out fights that are never going to be settled? It’s a matter of different attitudes and personalities. Come on Lea, just give it up already.
Francis keeps ending up in court for a reason. He’s trouble and needs to learn to just stay away from women. He already has “Girls Gone Wild”, does he really need every slightly famous woman to make him feel better about himself?
I’ve read about Joe Francis before, and none of it was good. Stay away from him Lea.
The only reason that I like Lea the best is because she seems to actually give back the most. That says a lot when you look at all the other rich women in Miami. Check out how much they’ve given to charity and what they’ve spent on their hair, I dare you.
Lea, don’t worry, you are still my favorite – no matter how many times Lisa wants to slam you!!
Just ignore Lisa. Why give her the satisfaction? She’s younger than you which means she will probably draw out any argument longer. Be the mature and sophisticated woman that I know you are capable of being and do not re-kindle that fire.
I like following you on your blog Lea. You write in the same snarky tone that you use on the show. It’s entertaining and it’s almost like I can hear you reading your post aloud to me!
I don’t even know what to say about last nights episode. I’m not surprised at all by the lingerie theme of the fundraiser – look at whose throwing the thing. I’ve got to say it definitely should have been classier – but with the women of today, I’m pretty sure that class has gone out the window.
I don’t even know why I love watching these housewife shows so much…it’s not like my life is anything like theirs! Boy, what I would do for the clothes and makeup that they get to wear! Lea Black, you are one lucky girl.
Lea, I for one like your sense of humor, probably because I have the exact same style! And so what if most people don’t understand it – we get a kick out of it and that’s all that matters!
I had no idea that you actually wrote coherent blog articles! This is the first time that I have visited your blog Lea and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised.
I absolutely adore you for not falling prey to these young mind-games that the other younger housewives often bring on themselves. GO LEA!!
Nice blog Lea. It’s good to read six pages of content from a housewife that is actually spelled correctly and isn’t all text-speak. Honestly women, education is one of our most important attributes.
No Lea, I don’t think that double standards are ever appropriate. That’s just the way I think and I wish more people were as un-accepting of them as I am so maybe they would start disappearing.
I think that sometimes we look a lot for the wrong in people, even if we don’t notice that we are doing it. Lea, you seem to be taking everything in stride.
Lea, I’ve gotta say that I’m pretty good at dishing out the gossip. I have a lot of friends, and because of the high rate of females, I tend to hear and spill a lot of gossip. I think it’s a dirty habit of mine – but sometimes it’s actually kind of fun!
Lea, in my opinion, gossip is anything that involves the talking and/or ranting about other people. When it is not any of your business. I have a thing about gossiping. I hate it. That’s the whole thing.
Laughing is for sure more fun than gossiping, who actually likes to gossip?? I think that gossiping about other people is more of a habit than a pastime or enjoyed activity. I don’t like talking about other people but I catch myself doing it sometimes. I’d much rather spend the time laughing. (in regards to Lea’s question at end of post)
I don’t know why anyone would wear lingerie to a party, honestly… I know it was the theme and all, but come on – where is the class in that??
When you overhear something at a party, it should not be repeated. Why? Well for one, you don’t even know if it’s true. Secondly – it’s absolutely none of your business unless the other person talking was saying it directly to you.
I don’t think that smiling too much is bad… in fact I’m not sure why it gets a bad rap at all. Sometimes a smile can be contagious and just what another person needs. I’m all for smiling!
No, I don’t think that it’s appropriate to kiss and tell. I mean come on – how much attention do you really need? Is all privacy gone from our lives nowadays?
Lea, come on. Double standards and two faced people will never go away – unfortunately it seems to be a permanent issue that has become a normal part of our society.
I don’t know if it’s possible to be both a Lea and a Lisa person. Although they are not DRASTICALLY different, I still have no idea how some of you can favor Lisa over Lea. I mean, come on, who do you really think has the brains in that “friendship”?
One of the most commendable facts about Lea is that she has been giving to charities for so many years now. I can overlook the fact that her personality is a bit hard to get along with. Deep down, she knows what to do and what is morally best.
I’m happy that Lea can hold her own in the world of women, but sometimes I wonder when enough will actually be enough…
Just had to say that your comment “It's amazing how close to naked people will get at a Miami party, but when it comes to stripping people down to who they really are, it's one big sh--storm...uh, snowstorm.” is amazing. I totally agree.
You need to update us on when your new purse is coming out!! That needs to be in my closet right now.
I’m pretty sure the drama that Lea helps to create will be one of the staples that make this show continue to air.
Some days I agree with you Lea, and other days I just have no idea where you head is at, girl…at least you looked pretty.
Lea, I think your ego is getting in the way of some important issues. You may get a bit of trouble down the road from some fans who know that you helped to ruin Lisa’s fundraiser which was for breast cancer. As a woman, no matter what problems you may have with Lisa, you should not have disrespected the cause like that.
As most of the other viewers are saying – why Joe Francis? Honestly Lea, you are beautiful enough to hang out with just about any celeb you want to. For those of you who don’t already know (or haven’t read online somehow), Joe Francis is the creator of the ever so popular “Girls Gone Wild”. Lea – is this really where your taste is?
All the housewives should take a que from you and learn how to conduct themselves in social situations. I know its all for TV but when they are screaming like crazy people it does not make them look good. You are the only person on the whole show who looks respectable. Everyone else is just a crazy train wreck
This episode was crazy!! I don't know how you deal with all the crazy in that room! And Joe looked pretty good. How are you guys friends? But he should keep his mouth shut. A Gentleman never tells.
You are the most fabulous person on the show! They need more of you and less of that freak Marysols mom. She's a disaster and not cute.
Lea you should really have a convo with Joanna and tell her to stop being such a diva. She's pretty but that does NOT excuse her bad behavior.
Saw the light in your eyes when Lisa worried her bash was ruined. But wouldn't get too misty eyed over it. She's working on her mean streak and it is gettin stronger by the epi. You are so far the best in show! A dog allusion)
Still, aside from Karent, youre the other favorite for blaming far flung events on. Are your friends/escorts your responsibility? No doubt whatsoever, Karent will be blamed for Joanna's behavior and you for Adriana's. All those in between cast members and actions are your faults. Now the hurricane? Karent's fault. It's a fact.
Forget the party and all the drama ...I want to know if you know how old Marta is presently? Joe (lil pig ) Frances, stated that ten years ago he slept with Marta. It's on record. That would mean Marta, would have to be 28 yrs old right now. Is Marta 28 yrs old. I think not! This matter has to be worked out, or Joe (lil pig) Frances has no business on Bravo and this matter has to be straightened out.
Am I the only one that can not stand when Lea says something she thinks is funny, then laughs at her self?
I like her for the most part. I don't understand why people are surprised by her company she keeps. Her husband is an attorney right? They don't always defend innocent, law abiding, honorable. Right?
If Lea would take a step back, she'd see her opinion and present was inportant to Lisa. That usually means a compliment. When someone younger and inexperience that I ask or looks to me, I am happy to help. Not make snarky remarks. Thats so childish!
Wonder what next week will be like? I hope not more of Joanna's bullying, I'm already so over her. I watched her on WWHL, when Adriana called in. Joanna was so rude and would not shut up and let the woman speak! I never heard what she even said! Like I said Joanna is a bully! Adriana did walk away.Poor Marta! She has had a bad role model, I sure hope Marta continues to stay with Lisa. I hope Marta will learn how families treat each other, respect & bounderys & quite!
How do you deal with all those lady's when you don't deal with stupid! They are so catty!
I'm glad you are the bigger person. Don't let these petty girls bring you down. They are just desperate. They should call the show Real Desperate Housewives of Miami and give you a new show called Lea's Look!
Lisa where can I buy your clothes? And is it true that you are coming out with a line of purses? I want to look just like you!
Maybe Lisa is just jealous because your house is so much prettier than hers! And your Husband is more successful too!
