Becoming Closer with Adriana

Lisa updates us on her relationship with the ladies.

Happy New Year, everyone! I have been in Playa del Carmen ringing in the New Year. I took a much needed vacation after all the craziness throughout the past few months. It’s been a roller coaster ride of emotions, good and bad, but memories and moments I will cherish forever.

The reunion was intense. Unsurprisingly the arguments throughout the season came to a head. It was a battlefield between Joanna and Adriana, back and forth between Marysol and Lea, and Karent vs the left couch. I am now in a good place with Lea and enjoy her company. The big shocker was the attack from Ana against Lea. I’m sure everyone was as shocked as I when Ana pulled out the file. Unless you have been following up with our blogs you probably had no idea where the unfounded, below the belt accusations came from. Watching the season the battle was not between Lea and Ana, but somehow they began to go after each other on their blogs. I believe this is what triggered this war.

I was asked how I felt about being called a fembot, and responded that I have no issues with it. Why would I? As far as I'm concerned they are hot, so who cares? I’ve been called worse things in my life! I don't know much more about them, because I don't remember watching the movie.

As I reported in my last blog, Daysy’s surgeries went fantastic. I posted before and after pics of her fantastic results by my husband Dr. Leonard Hochstein. She is now dating a wonderful man and could not be happier.

As far as the baby making goes, since our last failed attempt a few months ago I have given my body a little break. We plan to do another IVF attempt by February and pray all goes well this time around. I would also not be opposed to implanting multiple embryos in the hopes of getting at least one! Hey, who knows, I may end up with 2 or 3! This time around we plan on modifying the medications and method in hopes of a different outcome.

I revealed that Playboy for me was a regret. When you are barely 20 you don't make the best decisions. I never imagined that these photos would follow me for the rest of my life. It is something I am embarrassed about. I respect that there are some women out there who are glad that they did it. I am not one of them. 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!I hope 2013 is everyone’s best year yet! I adore and appreciate all of you so much! All of your comments, support, and love have made me a better and stronger person.

Let’s keep in touch and stay connected!

Hoping to Move Forward with Lea

Marysol shares what she hopes will come out of the reunion.

For me the reunion is a forum to hash things out and engage in verbal mud wrestling and hopefully come out cleansed from the tension and disagreements. I would like to make it clear that I do not hate anyone; I am not a person that likes to live in anger as it only makes you miserable and takes away from the precious moments of our lives. It is no secret that I have spent a couple of years being accused of lying by Lea when we do not see eye to eye on something. It is very frustrating to have issues with someone and always end up at the same place of “her word against mine.”

Unfortunately, my father this year has also had a rapid decline in his health and has spent the better part of the past few months in and out of the hospital. While dad was in the hospital with nothing else to do besides sleep, read, and watch TV he watched every episode of RHOM. He was very upset when he saw Lea saying I was lying when I said she didn’t call, write, or send flowers to mom for 8 weeks. He called me and said to figure out a way to video tape me and put it on that show of yours because I’ve had enough of the lies. My father was by mother’s side every day from the moment she went into the hospital to the day she came home (2 months later). He saw everyone who passed by, saw every flower and card that was sent etc. I truly was uncomfortable videotaping him in a hospital setting, but I was leaving for the reunion and he called relentlessly several times a day insisting I let him speak his mind for the cameras. If you thought Mama Elsa was tough, guess who she learned it from, that’s right, her husband of 52 years, Donald Patton. You never met anyone more ornery, stubborn, or tough, but I wouldn’t trade him for the world.

I have said my peace, which is what I went to the reunion to do. I have moved forward and forgive those who have hurt me and I forgive myself for those I may have hurt. I truly want to move forward to a better place with Lea to the best of our ability. We may never be best friends, but I’d like to think we can at least be in the same room, be cordial, and maybe even share a laugh someday.

It has been a fun season with the ladies and it provided a great distraction from the personal emotional struggles I was going through with my parents’ declining health.  I hope you enjoyed the season, thank you for all of your support and best wishes for my mother as that has been the greatest gift the show has brought us.
