As much as I love going out and having fun with my husband and friends, I really am ready for the next chapter in life. There is more to life than the fast pace South Beach lifestyle. Many of the people we encounter are peripheral, superficial acquaintances anyway. Only a handful of them are real friends. In the end they won’t be there. I want to invest my time in a family to whom I can give a better life than I have ever had. Lenny is not too old to have children by any means, but having children is something he has wanted for a long time and we deserve to have them. He has given me so much and I more than anything want to give him the ultimate gift of having his child. We have unfortunately suffered miscarriages, failed IVF attempts, acupuncture, and even tried a surrogate with no success. We of course will not give up and plan on doing everything we can until we have our family. I know and believe it will happen. I like to believe everything happens for a reason, and it just really is all about timing.
Anticipating a chic lunch spot, most of us decided to get all dolled unaware we were going to a simple conch stand. I decided I would be the designated driver and give the ladies a thrill ride. Sure, it was dangerous driving the golf carts the way I did but I was bored, LOL! Although it looked like a hole in the wall restaurant, it was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. The women tried to get me to eat the conch pissel because it’s supposedly and aphrodisiac. The only pissel I will touch is my husbands, and he wasn't there anyway, so why would I need a passion potion?
Later that evening Karent received horrible news that her 81-year-old father wasn't doing well, but she couldn't get off the island right away due to the storm. Her problems really put the other nonsense in perspective. She understandably wasn't up to attending Ana’s dinner at the other house. Lea and Joanna though it would be good for her to pull herself together and join us in hopes she would feel better. I disagreed and was glad she stayed behind. It seems Karent can be a lot like me when she’s upset and just needs her space to gather her thoughts. There is no reason for her to be around any negative energy especially when she has to deal with her added stress.
Lisa, Lisa, Lisa, Do not, I repeat. Do not, trust Lea for one minute. You know the saying "keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer". That is how you treat Lea. She is NO friend. She likes to stir the pot from behind the scenes. Your party should remind you of that. Just like the party with the shoes...Lea should have told Elaine this is NOT the time or place but, instead she encouraged it (as usual) that Elaine talk to Marisol there. (Knowing full well Elaine would lose it). Then lying later saying she told her this was not the time or place. Then at the idiots party ( that gross, ignorant pig of a mans house) she made that lame speech just to kiss up to that idiot then smirks all through her spiel about how he talked to Elsa...She does this all the time! I hope all you girls watch and re watch your show , many times, and you will see...(I hope you get the out takes too) She uses her wisdom (age) to best you younger girls and tries to make you look bad. The fact that she knows more criminals than her husband, speaks volumes. She is fiendish deviant and NOT to be trusted. (unless your a man, better yet a criminal...) Please Don't ever say you want to be like her again. One phony treacherous Lea is enough! You are too nice for that, and we the viewers want you to stay that way.
Of all the housewives on all of the shows on Bravo, you seem to be the kindest of them all. Hope you stay that way Mrs. Hochstein. One day some child will be blessed to have you as their mother.
I say "a different side of Lisa"! I thought you were plastic from the first episode (sorry) but out of all the cast you have really shown your true self! I think you are helping a lot of women who have trouble conceiving opening up about it and being honest with what is going on. I think you were a Playboy Playmate but wow you have shown more heart and sould and "real" feelings than anyone on the show. Hope you return!!!
Lisa, I hope you receive your wish for a child soon. The bright side is that u know you can get pregnant. The next time you find out you r pregnant, make sure to stay off your feet for nine months. In other words tae a nine-month bed rest. The only thing u would be allowed to do is to take a shower. No shopping. nothing at all. you r rich so u can afford to do it. Don't walk around the house. Believe me, i know that this helped 3 women i know who couldnt afford fertility treatment. Best wishes.
Hi Lisa. My heart goes out to you and your struggle to get pregnant. Have you every considered adoption? My husband and I both want children biologically and through adoption. It can be such a blessing if you give it a chance!
Lisa, you've proved that you are beautiful inside and out (ok a little help from your doctor husband) but i like how level headed and centered you are concerning your marriage and having a family. You've become my favorite for sure. I hope your wish of having a child will become true someday soon, don't give up hope.
Lisa, You are so brave to talk about your miscarriages on camera. I wish you all the best in trying to conceive. Know that you are not alone. You are the best "housewife" of miami. I am a MIami native and sometimes hate all the high school style drama of that group but you have managed to stay way above all of it. Don't let their drama and stress get to you. You need to relax and focus your energy on conceiving. My best advice is to forget about it as much as possible. You try so hard to do everything right when you are "trying" that you forget to just live your normal life. Its harder said then done. I know. But when you find your inner voice has trailed on to conception or your miscarriage and the self deprecation that comes with it. Go have a drink with a friend or go for a run. You are amazing!
You are my favorite!! I know that you will get your heart's desire! I love your depth, sincerity and not to mention your quirky sense of humor. You are the whole package. Keep being you!
You and Karent have brought warmth, humanity and compassion to this cast of otherwise chilly ladies. I couldn't warm up to any of the season one cast. I meditate for you. Have a wonderful season and a fantastic new year.
Of all the Miami housewives, I find you to be the most compassionate. Your beauty has nt tarnished your soul and I wish many children upon you. Any child would be lucky to have you as his mother. xxoo
You are the best! I love how funny you are and have a kind heart with every situation!
I have to say that I myself had fertility problems. For six years my husband and I tried for children to no avail. My doctors didn't know what was wrong so they sent me to a specialist. The specialist told me I had PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome) and that my chances of having children were less than 3% with fertility drugs. It didn't make sense to me as I had read about it and read stories about how women can get pregnant with it. So my husband and I decided to seek fertility treatment and had no success. I couldn't afford IVF so we decided to wait and let what may happen, happen. In June of this year I became pregnant without the help of fertility drugs, it was a huge surprise to say the least.
My advice is to stop thinking about it and start planning your life with your husband and when you least expect it, a little voice will tell you to take a pregnancy test and it'll be positive and you'll make it to full term. Keep God close to your heart and let Him know all your desires. I'll continue to pray for you and hope that one day you can experience motherhood!
You are beautiful, sweet and very funny with alot of class. I love watching you.I never know what to expect. I hate it when I have to miss your segment. When I get back to watch I make everyone explain in detain what i have missed. You make the show FUN! Lenny is a cutie also.You two are really cool! I would go to Lenny if I needed work just because of the show! He seems like the best! Great couple! Great Job LISA! Never a dull moment with you! Lenny did great work, you are a Delicious Dish inside and out!
You really are adorable- you have a kind heart and a great sense of humor too. Love you and your Lenny together!! You will be great parents!!
Merry Chrsimas and Happy 2013!!
Lisa, you are my favorite housewife!!! You and Lenny are such a nice couple. I don't know if you have been tested for endometriosis, the only way to know for sure if you have it is to have surgery it is a very common cause of infertility, look into it, if found it can be removed during surgery to improve fertility, but unfortunately can grow back. You are going to be a wonderful mother some day! Happy Holidays!!! <3
i feel your pain. i cannot have because because of a heart condition. impray every night that one day I can fupind a surrogate!!! They could so much money! But girl you guys make millions. KEEP ON TRYING AND NEVER GIVE UP!
You are the best. I agree that your husband is lucky to have you. You are a gem, very very rare gem.
I'm so glad you are seeing the side of Lea that her fans all love. Should she relax with the snarky comments? Maybe. I get her sense of humor and don't see any malice in it. She clearly has a big heart and people are just too damn sensitive!
As for Karent, sorry, but Karent made it the worlds business when she falsely accused the WRONG Ana of chasing her man and then went as far as mocking Ana's relationship with her ex and her kids. I did feel bad for her when she couldn't get off the Island to see her sick father. I'm glad she chose to stay away and that the other women respected that.
Last weekend they ran reruns of your show and I have to say Karnet really was the one stirring the pot especially at your party she went up to Joe and ask him if he slep with both sisters he didn't bring it up she did then she ran right over to Joanna and started the drama. I noticed when your phone was wet your made (sorry forgot her name very nice lady) was trying to dry the phone and Karent grab the rice bag and took the credit I still don't trust her. Maybe if she comes back next season she will chill out and learn from RHOBH and what happend to Camille. But I love you Lisa you are so sweet and so caring......
You are totally my favorite on this show! WIshing you and Lenny Happy Holidays. May this coming year bring you blessings!!
TEAM LISA i feel your pain,how about you try surrogacy and then try IVF again. My friend had the same problem and she gained some weight and removed negativity from her life. I wish you the best. i think your the most sincere one of all.
My heart goes out to you for your long journey and many attempts to have children. Someone who is as caring as you appear to be, definitely deserves to be blessed with a child. In this day and age, there are so many ways to have children, and I know you've tried various methods, but just don't give up. I'm not sure if you've considered adoption but after many attempts and the death of their first born during childbirth, my brother adopted a son from Guatemala and later had another son, naturally. There is no difference between the two boys, we love them both the same. The way I see it, babies are ALWAYS a blessing, no matter the circumstances. I wish you the best and will say a prayer for you. Good luck on the rest of your journey....
You seem to be a very wonderful person. Stay that way. Please don't let these people change your inter glow.
With each passing episode I become more impressed with you. As much as your husband has given you, he's lucky to have you to give it to. You're a good wife, a good friend and you've got a wicked sense of humor.
You have remained the voice of reason in may of the trying situations that the ladies have faced so far this season. You are honest without being abrasive and you have more class in your little finger than most of the other ladies have combined. Keep your head and your spirits up regarding your fertility struggles, I truly believe God will bless you with a child. Just keep paying it forward as much as you can.....
