Lisa explains the comments from her pre-party about Elsa.

on Sep 27, 20120

Things are heating up in Miami in more ways than one. (Like we needed any more heat!) So here is my take on tonight’s explosive episode.

Things immediately heated up in Romain and Joanna's bedroom, but it quickly turned cold. Romain was uninterested at that moment and preoccupied with his big night, which left Joanna frustrated.

Romain and Joanna, as beautiful as they may be, are no different from anyone else. After seeing this, I'm sure many breathed a sigh of relief knowing they are not alone. When lives are busy or you're at a crossroads in a relationship, your sex life will suffer the consequences. Having Marta around while trying to figure out the next step in their relationship looks like a distraction. This is exactly why I offered Marta to come stay with me, so those two could get some much needed privacy. And besides, Marta would be in a completely separate wing of our house. No imposition at all.

When Joanna called me that afternoon to tell me about Romain’s citizenship and Lea’s gala, I did feel belittled that Lea called Joanna personally, but I was called by her assistant. Perhaps I was being a tad sensitive, but ultimately I want to do whatever I can to raise funds for charity, so it wasn't hard for me to overlook that to try and contribute any way that I could. Charity work trumps personal issues every time. I love doing what I can for great causes, and I admire how her charity is run.

Totally agree with you about Elsa's bad surgery. I feel really bad for her, what a horrible plastic surgeon she had. Good luck on trying to conceive!!  Joanna reminds me of me in my late teens/early twenties having those ridiculous fights with my college boyfriend, gigantic fights about nothing that really matters.

I'm really starting to like you. I can see how some people may be put off by the things you say, but I get your humor. I also appreciate that you're willing to say what everyone else is thinking (Mama Elsa) and/or afraid to say themselves.  You were not unkind and gave a great explanation to back up your statement.  It's apparent you and your husband are in love and that you're a team.  Women don't have to work outside of the home to make contributions to their marriage.  So you forgot Daysy was a recovering alcoholic, that doesn't mean you aren't friends/friendly with each other.  You can tell that Daysy really likes you and that's because you are kind to her.  I hope you continue to be a wonderful asset to this show and don't go crazy like Aviva did on the NY housewives mid-season. Second to last, I thought the scene at your husband's office where you brought photos in was hillarious.  You're too cute.  Lastly, I hope you're blessed with a baby soon.  You said you were trying and children are awesome.  Best wishes!

You are so cute! you remind me a bit of My Favorite Genie, the tv show. Keep up the good work. You are a breath of fresh air and you are fun to watch!

This is a very healthy attitude to cosmetic surgery. Using liposuction to sculpt resistant areas of fat in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise is the way to go! Sounds like a marvelous marriage, and important charity work! Very nice! I love reading healthy, optimistic stories like this!

So you have been supporting Lea since you were 13? Cool. Anyway, I agree Elsa had a horrible exp with plastic surgery, I feel so sorry for her! Why don't you ask your husband to fix it!? I kinda agree with some of the other post...I don't think you have any real interest in your housekeeper. Like offering her a shot/drink which you've done more than once. Also you make snarky comments like yeah she's a preacher or something. No cute. Also what is it with walking out to your own private pool in high heels sitting there applying make-up? Is that scripted or vanity?

You are refreshingly honest and really funny. I like your relationship with your husband---you two are so cute with each other and can see there is a lot of love there.

I think its tacky that you keep talking about your housekeeper's sobriety on tv AND you even offer her a shot!  You call her "hired companionship" but you can't remember that she's sober?

FINALLY! Thank you for saying what everyone else is thinking and no one has the balls to say - about Elsa's face! Why is it like this big elephant in the room that no one wants to acknowledge? To sit there and say she looks great is like, come on! Is her figure still rockin' for a mature woman, yes! We can only hope her health is great, too. But she doesn't "look" great at all. Her face is completely botched. Thank you for just saying it because whether you love Elsa or not, it's true. And I don't know, you and your hubby are the experts so maybe you can tell us, but it appears to me that Elsa's face isn't the result of one botched job. She looks like she went under the knife SEVERAL times so I have to put some accountability on her for not stopping when she probably should have. It seems her face now is a result of many plastic surgeries that eventually went awry (so i'm not buying the "1 bad surgery" crap). But does acknowledging that mean one doesn't like her? That she's a bad person? Of course not! I think she's awesome. So why the sensitivity with everyone else not wanting to just cop to it, like you did, and say her face got jacked up and it's a shame. You stated the obvious and you weren't afraid to do so and you weren't disrespectful about it. You won me over at that moment.

You crack me up and I love that you tell it like it is (without being too too harsh lol).  What a great addition to the show!

Lisa,  you are so adorable, sweet, and fun...You are my fave housewife! I thought it was very sweet of you to offer to have Marta stay with you for awhile. Most women would not have a beautiful, young, single woman live in the same house as their husband...just shows how confident and considerate you are. You handle annoying Lea very well. And what you said about Elsa...is what everyone else is thinking! You are awesome and one day you'll be a wonderful mother! #TeamLisa #ChampBull

Lisa is my favorite new housewife.  She is so cute and funny.  Besides the plastic surgeries, she is real inside.  What a beautiful and generous person to take in Joanna's bratty sister, Marty to live in her house.

Hi Lisa!!

 

I am very impressed with how you have conducted yourself so far. You seem to be grounded, kind, and balanced. You also do not seem to abuse alcohol and appear to genuinely love your husband. So refreshing considering you are still very young compared to other housewives.

 

Good luck and I hope you keep on going as you have so far.

You clearly were stating the obvious about Elsa. She doesn't look great, because of the surgeon or otherwise. I'm not sure if it can be repaired or not but I would think you'd want to fix the problem. Feel for her.

Great show and I like all the new housewives but your comment about not being caught in a club over 40 was kind of harsh.  I am 45 and stopped "clubbing" when I met my future husband at 30 so I agree with you to a degree but you you made it sound like anyone over 40 is ancient.  Better watch out because 40 will be here before you now it !  :)

Lisa regarding mama Elsa's plastic surgery am pretty sure she didnt expect her face to be destroyed by a surgeon. Am pretty sure that the technology back them wasnt as advance at it is today.. Anyhow is there any hope for a successful reconstructive surgery for mama elsas face?! Is it possible or is it a lost case.. Ask your husband!! An dnt be so harsh on her it wasn't her decision to have that outcome. Thanks
