Lea Black

Lea thinks Lisa's event was the craziest party she's ever attended.

on Oct 29, 20120

Some People Collect Things, I Collect People.

Like my friends or not, you can't say they're not entertaining. I don't judge people as much by their behavior as I do by their heart. And sometimes you have to get to know people before you know their good heart. And sometimes you have to get to know people before you realize their true heart, and sometimes it's not what you expected, and sometimes its not so good.

I find that when it comes to people, I either like them more the more I get to know them or less the more I get to know them. I have found this to be very true on this Housewife journey. I think as it plays out over the next few episodes, you will be surprised to see how all the relationships play out.

As for me, even though I heard numerous things being said about me by people that don't know me and don't care to get to know me, I tried overlooking most of it. I think it's fair to say, if I think someone has a good heart, I am pretty forgiving in regard to their speaking before thinking. Or speaking out of ignorance, or speaking to try to be relevant. It's when their meanness is calculated and bitter that I don't forgive or not forgive, I just ignore and don't engage.

Lea,  You seem so smart, I think by having trouble as a shadow does not highlight your reality.  Joe Francis???? What are you bringing that to a nice party with you?  And your Elaine friend?  Never showed any bit of sorrow to Lisa when Lisa went nuts with these two buddies of yours are causing all the trouble that Adriana is not.  Keep your creepy friends out, you have a large enough circle of friends that complement you as the lady you are. Those two guys are losers!

I love your blog Lea – keep updating us on all the show info and the girls. I love reading about it after I come home from the store, it’s a nice distraction from my REAL housewife life, lol!

I wonder what an evil twin of Lea would be like?? Really puts things into perspective of what you think the opposite of her is…Maybe it’s a Lea White?? LOL

I love your show Lea (well, not YOUR show, but whatever). I think you bring a great personality to the set and a dynamic voice that should be heard. Sometimes you are much more interesting to watch than the other younger women.

I don’t even like Lisa one bit to be honest, so Lea, feel free to snap on her at anytime…we all know that you are dying inside to give up that mature act and just sock her one!!

I think it’s kind of cool that you know Joe Francis…I can’t say I admire his work, but as a fellow party-goer, he must be one tough act to follow!

Lea, Lea, Lea…what are we going to do with you?? Oh – I know – keep watching your show because it is so darn addicting!!

I wish everyone blogged like you Lea, it really helps us viewers to see where your head is truly at instead of just assuming after watching!

Thank you, BRAVO, for putting yet another housewives show on the air. I just couldn’t get enough of all the claws and crap-talking, I’m very enthused that I now have something to take up my entire night. Although I’m not a huge fan of the show, I’ve become more and more interested in Lea. Maybe because she’s older like I am, but I admire her sense of self.

You seem to like causing a lot of problems Lea, even if you don’t “think” you are actually doing it. Maybe you are just sleep-gossiping or something. Someone needs to wake you up!!

I like Lea and Joanna the best. Can’t really say why. They are both gorgeous and there is just something about their personalities that really attracts me to them.

I would kill to come down to Miami and party with you girls. Seems like it would be a weekend I would never forget!! (or maybe would want to forget)

Girls, DRAMA IS NOT EVERYTHING!! Life should be about learning, not gossiping. Lea seems to understand that better than most.

I’m glad that Lea knows how to entertain us and yet not take it over the edge like most of the other girls do. They need to take a few lessons from the more experienced.

I’m sure Lisa’s party could have gone a lot worse, I mean with all those dogs and women around, I’m surprised no one got caught with their pants down! (metaphorically speaking, kind of).

Lea, choose your friends wisely. And choose your party guests even wiser because you will be responsible for if your fundraiser turns into a fiasco like Lisa’s almost did.

I don't care how much money Joe Francis can contribute to a cause.....or a gala plate.....I would never take his money for all the tea in China.... or associate him with something so important. He and all he stands for are beneath contempt and that he is someone you would include in your circle speaks volumes. Money is NOT always the most important thing. I wonder if you were to ask Mr Francis to contribute or volunteer some personal time, off camera, w/ some of these kids you're always talking about....he would be no where in sight.

It took a few episodes, but we love you Lisa!  You are my hubby and I's favorite HW!

Lea are you realy the mayor of Miami, or is that a joke? You make a lot of trouble. You act so classless. Your sense of humor is not funny

Perhaps thinned-skinned sufferers of low self esteem might think your jokes are persona attacks, but I enjoy your spontaneous hilarity.  You are the program. Without you I wouldn't watch the show........................

I don't enjoy Lea on the show, very in-authentic to me.  I love the housewives in this franchise except Adriana.  Just seems that Lea is a trouble maker and insincere.

If you really want to be considered as someone with class....then stop pretending to be joking when you are hurling insults at people.  It is transparent rudeness.  Jeez, can't we have just one person on this show that has real class?  I'll say it again, one could easily confuse this show with any "basketball wives" show.

Lea, I am behind you ONE HUNDRED PERCENT!! I’m glad you know how to control yourself; at least one of the housewives needs to have that skill! Take care Lea.

You are the best to watch on this show but the other girls are slowly catching up with how much drama they bring to my television set.

Who says you can’t have fun if you aren’t wild? I’m sure Joe Francis wouldn’t agree but drama is not the only way to have fun at a party!!

Lol, while this is “Miami, not Vatican City” it should still mean that you approach things with the appropriate level of behavior and not act like a bunch of five year olds on crack. There should be some level of control that is kept and SOME line that is not to be passed.

I don’t have much to say about the party, I’m pretty sure all the other viewers have said enough for me. I am glad that you contributed more money Lea, it shows a lot when you can give.

I hope that this whole fiasco at Lisa’s party really made you think a little bit more carefully about who you want to invite to your own fundraiser Lea. Hopefully yours will be a bit more sophisticated.

James I like, but Joe Francis? Lea – get another male buddy. There’s tons of them around, you really don’t need to sink to Francis.

Lea I’m glad that you actually know how to DRESS to a party. I mean come on, some of the girls looked like they weren’t even wearing anything!! Just cause you have it does not mean that you have to constantly show it off. How unclassy is that?

This is Miami, the party scene of the nation. great guests Lea! if it wasn't for your guests it would be a bunch half naked girls taking each other apart item by item.  Remember folks the name of the show is REAL (HOM)  not fake. Not just covertly, self rightously thinking about  what you want to do to someone at a party - get over yourselves and enjoy the party:) AC

I'm sure the hooligans you showed up with to Lisa's party will be on their best behavior at the gala or they may not even be invited. It was so obvious you were trying to sabotage Lisa's charity event. You stood there and pretended you were appalled with their behavior... and you asked Lisa more than once if she was raising money!

You are so passive aggressive it's amazing, entertaining to watch and pretty sad.  Funny that you brought 2 of the troublemakers to the party....even though they have "good and true hearts".  If someone was pushed into the pool at one of your events they'd be out on their ear in seconds.  That shows the ultimate in classlessness, but, he/she is your best friend and it was only a "pool splash" anyway, according to you.  Poor Lisa, not to mention the ruined cell phone and DJ equipment.  You trivialize it and that's so hypocritical.  I am still trying to correlate "good and true heart" with "tax evader and briber", not to mention one who made his living on exploiting women who have had too much to drink....in some cases he actually provided the alcohol to these girls, one as young as 14 years old.  My, that's a fine, upstanding member of society...One to be proud to call a friend, because he has a "heart of gold".  You are sad and stupid and a joke.  Go home and do some more seating charts.

Lea - my favorite saying is "Beauty is temporary but stupid is forever"! I like your tongue-in-cheek humor but I would caution you to add a sensitivity filter...you can be funny without it being at somebody's expense. I just want to know why all of you are raving about Romain being a gentleman? He got in Adriana's face in a menacing fashion - REALLY????

I watch shows on BRAVO a lot and honestly this show of yours Lea is pretty much the most exciting one. Like honestly, you have officially become my dirty little habit.

Lea, I think you like Joe Francis so much because he kind of acts like a woman himself… very much into gossip and the whole “kiss and tell” scene. LOL!

I don’t know about you Lea, but I think Joe Francis was a hoot! I hate his Girls Gone Wild work but as a person he is pretty funny.

Lea, I’m glad you usually keep out of all the fighting – but it wouldn’t hurt to step up and start calling everyone out on what they are doing. Maybe the girls just need some outer perspectives to see how they truly act..

Lisa’s event was interesting and a bit skanky….I’m looking forward to seeing how your event turns out Lea. Will keep my ears open for that one.

 @22gemgem22  Think I would look again at the "classless", you  must not live in the Miami community.  Lea and her husband do so much for our community to help the needy,  if you lived here  you would know she does so much more for the community than our own Mayor.  Be nice!

 @torreyvest Think you should watch it again!  And see who the trouble makers are.
