Lisa updates us on her relationship with the ladies.

on Jan 8, 20130

As far as our home is concerned, we are in the process of getting our plans perfected and approved. Unfortunately we are fighting a group of preservationists that want the old house to be preserved. These people have never been on the property and have no idea about the bad condition the house is in, but feel they have the right to tell us what to do and have actually gone so far as to dry to designate the home historic without our consent after we had purchased it. Fortunately the city of Miami Beach is respectful of private individuals’ rights and understands our situation. Our neighbors unanimously support our new home. It just seems odd that people who don't even live on the island would be so nasty. The names we have been called in the press for wanting to do nothing more than build our family home is disgusting. We look forward to sharing our plans in the near future.
 
As far as Adriana and Joanna, my feeling is that I like them both and there is no need for me to take sides; no one should expect me to. During filing of Season 2 Joanna and I were close, but once we wrapped, we became distant. Blame it on our miles apart, our schedules, or whatever. I did however try to text and call a few times but did not feel reciprocated so I gave up. I am not one to beg or pine after friends. Adriana and I were friendly but not close during filming. Since we wrapped I have spent more time with her and Fredric, and we just get along. Lenny also adores Fredric, so it’s fun to double date.

I felt Alexia was wrong in how she handled Bimini and Karent. I didn’t like the way she spoke to me at the reunion. I will never back down to someone who wants to have an argument with me. I usually don’t argue, but when I do I make sense and I’m usually right.

I hope all the women on this cast find happiness and peace if they have not already and I truly wish them all the best!

Hi Lisa, I think you are gorgeous inside & out & am sad to hear that you & Joanna have grown apart. It worries me a little that you have become close to Adriana. I watched her this season & was disgusted by her endless bitching about Karent. She was always saying that Karent was stirring the pot yet it was she who was doing that & turning anyone she could against Karent. I was also disappointed by what I saw of Alexia this season who again for no reason turned against Karent. Yes, Karent mentioned her son however from what I viewed it wasn't said in the way that she interpreted it. I found it disappointing as I had liked her before this season. I think that both Adriana & Alexia came off as thinking they were Queen Bees & anyone new should bow down to them. I also think that Adriana had better have another look at her fight with Joanna as it was she who was violent towards Joanna & personally I think that even though things got a little out of hand & the whole situation was obviously disrespectful to you happening in your house someone needed to stand up for Karent & I admire that Joanna was being a good friend & not letting Adriana bully Karent.

Lisa, I got pregnant using fertilityblend.com. I have recommended it to many people and have had 5 friends get pregnant. My husband and I did 3 rounds of IVF and were told we had a less than 0% change of it working. I pray you get your baby like I did!

Hello Lisa! Just wanted to say LOVE the show and I am so happy they brought you on. You and Lenny are amazing people and such a cute couple. I also wanted to comment because my friends and I are going to Miami for Spring Break this upcoming week and we are beyond excited to be there! Although I have been there once before, I was wondering if you had any Spring Break advice as to where are the best clubs and places to have a great time. I am from Ohio so you can only imagine the weather here...I cannot wait to be in the sunny 80 degree weather on a beach!! Let me know if I could grab some advice form ya! Thank you!

Lisa, I hope you read this. I just recently started watching rhom and I must tell you that i think you seem adorable, trutful and genuine. I felt i needed to reach out to you because my hart is aching for you and L and the fact that you cannot concieve a child. My mom and dad couldnt concieve for 9 years of their marriage so I know where you're coming from. Something my mother has told me is that she got pregnant when she started thinking about someting else, when she was preoccupied with the new house and work. I think you just need to let it go and i know it is hard. Also you should maybe quit drinking for a while and just engage in healthy food and keep yourself preoccupied. I wish you the very best, greetings from Sweden.

I hope you and Joanna remain good friends.  You guys are cute together.  Adriana's behavior at the reunion was....not good.

You and Adriana  were my favorites all season and I'm glad you're now friends. I hope everything works out in the baby department. Good things come to good people.

You have behaved in such a lovely way on this show...most wives, no matter how nice, on the real housewives shows (doesn't matter which city) end up showing a poor side of themself, not once did I see you behave that way, you were such a lady :) 

I wish you and your husband all the best in your journey for a child, my parents spent 7 years trying before they adopted my sister and then me 6 years later.  I know how much I was wanted and loved by them and felt it every day, but I know they struggled for years with people quesitoning and making my mom feel bad about herself for not having had a child yet....I hope everyone is understanding and respectful to your private situation and allow you and your husband to handle it without added stress and pain.  Good luck and all the best!!

Hey Lisa, you were such a breath of fresh air and very lovely and gracious this season! Well Done! Keep up the good work! I concur with all your comments in your blog. Good job, you read the words out of my mind! :)

 

As for IVF, everyone else telling you to 'relax, drink a bottle of red wine, or go on a holiday' need to be ignored.. ..LOL. I completely relate to your frustrations with the baby-making and the 'well, we've tried this and it didn't work, let's now try this instead'.... It is so annoying, it's like a long car trip, 'are we there yet, are we there yet?'. People who haven't experienced your journey don't understand what you're going through. They also don't understand how it can put a strain on your relationship. In our case, after 3 years, we got there in the end, and it's definitely worth it! :)

 

Something you may need to check out with your IVF clinic is, because you're under 35 and depending on Florida state laws, they might not put more than one egg in at a time. After 'Octomum', IVF clinics around the world started to pull back on how many eggs could go back in. But don't let that deter you, 'cos you're under 35, you're considered 'young' in IVF-land! :)

 

Good luck, and all the best, and we look forward to your successes in 2013! Our thoughts are with you and your husband. Much love, Toby from Queensland xox

Lisa, you turned out to be sweet, nice, non-confrontational and a softy.  I am glad that you are part of RHOM and that you return next season.  I wish you happiness and hope that your next IVF is a success. 

 

Don't pay any attention to some of the hateful comments below written by people who are judgemental and hateful.

I'm not quite clear why you and Joanna are not that close anymore but I hope she calls you back.  Good for you for standing up for yourself against the GI Joe Barbie Alexis, you don't deserve to be treated like her child and have that finger pointing you down, it's not your fault she's so angry with everybody.  Hope you come back and good luck with babies.

Sweetie you can't say I was really young 20 when I did playboy. You sat on the couch and told Lea you were 29! That's not enough time to be young a stupid WAY back then. It is enough time to be embarrassed. Though you shouldn't. Just be careful about how you put stuff cause everyone is so on the edge of wanting to hate you. You are pretty and most of the time people can't stand that!

"No need to pick sides?"  You have a strange sense of loyalty.  How you could sit there during the entire season and excuse Adriana for here despicable attacks on both Joanna and Karent, and now hear you defend your friendship with her because the others didn't stay close in touch, doesn't say much about your value of friendship.

i think that joanna and adriana simply fronted each other off

they both have huge egos that prevents them from forgiving the insults passed back and forth

now they simply look for passive as well as aggressive ways to lash out in defense of their insulted pride

they seem to have something huge in common ..........actually

piperbeau

I do like you Lisa, I just don't think your that loyal of a friend!!! First off you know dam well Adriania put her hands on Jo Anna first!! Wasn't JoAnna supposed to be your girl?? And Karent for that matter!! Adriania was so nasty to both of them!!

I wish you luck with having a baby. One of the greatest mysteries to me is why the people that deserve babies the most have the most trouble trying. I have a child. She almost killed me because somehow I got cardiomyopathy during my pregnancy and the doctors failed to diagnose it for a long time. I would do anything to have another baby now that my miracle baby is 4 but it would kill me. So i do feel your pain. But for you, it has to work! you are healthy and wealthy! You will have a baby!

Lisa,

You deserve a better friend than Joanna.You are not filming,she's gone.I'm sorry to say she does everything for show,even love and friendship.I started watching the show because of her.I'm Polish and I wanted to support her.What happened at your charity party was just horrible,I couldn't sleep.I have never met a person behaving this way .You had every right to ask her to leave.Obviously it was NOT about Karent,that's just an excuse.Joanna is the master of manipulation.She's using people she comes in touch with,including loved ones and friends.It's sad that a woman can act like that.At the same time her behavior towards Adriana is just mean.It'Joanna who is jealous.Adriana speaks better English even with her accent.Joanna opens her mouth to scream,swear or insult others.The worst part is, she thinks she has a right to do that because she is sooo beautiful.Well, to me she seems quite ugly.I just had to write it because being who you are Lisa,I'm sure you wondered why she ignored you.I think that's why.

Adriana is so nasty, I am shocked you have that much in common with her.  I guess she is not being nasty to you is because she is not jealous of you having Lenny.   She goes after any girl who has a hot man it seems.

I wasn't so sure about you at first but as the season went on you showed that you were sincere and genuine and not just some trophy wife. If they have another season I truely hope they keep you on although I think you are above all the petty low-brow drama the other women are notorious for.

I'm so glad you see the side to Lea and Adriana that their fans love. I don't agree with everything they say or do but I don't think they do/say anything with malice like Ana and Joanna did.

My sister couldn't get pregnant.  They went on a trip, they relaxed......a month later she was pregnant.  So it's true that you need to get away and relax.  Best wishes to you.

You are the best housewive of all .....past and present.

Loved watching you all season....hope to see you nest season.

@jennifer.zelinski.77 Seriously? I'm 28 and there is plenty of stuff I did because I was young and stupid at 20. Who are you to decide how people mature?? That's ridiculous.

@jennifer.zelinski.77 I do like her but I wouldn't say she is Pretty. Anyone can tell she had so much work done to her face at such a young age. But I'm not sure her being such a close friends with Adriana! Adriana is evil and a very nasty person. What does that say about Lisa having a friend like Adriana?

peperbeau:  If someone had announced that were going beat someone up that night, and then that same person was chasing me down a hall as I was trying to leave......I would have turned around and tried to break their nose in several places so they would not hurt me first.  Joanna was clearly the agressor that night.  Adrianna was trying to leave.  I think they are both at fault.....Adrianna at the reunion...but Joanna on the night Adrianna slapped her.

@koczusia do you actually mean to say that you couldn't sleep after watching Lisa's party on tv because it was so horrible? I think you should check with a counselor for advice. You are too troubled to be watching reality shows or any shows ! You are becoming too enmeshed and it will ruin your health if you are losing sleep.

 @koczusia ...While I agree with you that Joanna has some issues...,however,  to post that Joanna is jealous of Adriana is laughable...just sayin.  

 

BTW, these RHOM ladies need to move on to something other than "jealousy" & "bullying" matters...over it.

@rosyposy You don't know the laws of this country. Adriana was the aggressor!

@Relo-HOM @koczusia it is obvious to most rational thinking people that Adriana has major issues with Johanna. They are mainly very shallow issues. Not to beat around the bush but Adriana is jealous of johanna

 @Relo-HOM  @koczusia

 agreed - tired of only hearing that they are jealous or being bullies. All of these women have some issues that I don't think originated when they met each other and they need to work on them.

@rosyposy Congratulations on your pedigree but you are wrong about the episode. Adriana bashed Joanna in her face.

Evangelia:  Please do not make a fool of yourself by saying I do not know the laws of this country.  My family has been in this country since the 1700s.   I am very well aware of this nations laws.....and the fact that when one makes a declarative statement that they are going to beat you up and then proceeds to drunkenly chase you down the hall as you are attempting to escape.....you absolutely have the right to defend yourself.  Jeez Louise, what country's laws have you been studying. LOL

Relo-HOM

 @koczusia ...constantly attack??...Not to defend Joanna at all...but Joanna was drunk & was insulted that Angriana called her a "wanna be" at Lisa's party.  Joanna's behavior is a whole other topic I'm sure we would rather not get into, however, she did NOT go after Angriana out of jealousy.
