Lea continues to promote her gala at NBC. She works very hard every year to make it the success that it is. Her dedication is admirable.
I invited all the ladies to the annual Hearts and Stars Gala at George Walner’s home to benefit The Little Lighthouse Foundation, which aids children and their families in South Florida who struggle with medical, educational, emotional, and financial challenges and addresses the needs of local charities benefitting children. I enjoy getting involved in good causes any chance I get, because as we all know, it’s important to give back. I gain experience and insight on how these galas are run to help make my own events as successful. I hardly got the chance to visit with the ladies, because I was being pulled in so many directions. It seemed like everyone I knew was there that night.
It was a really fun night for me, but I can't say the same for the rest of the ladies. Everyone’s feathers were ruffled by Karent’s interaction with Thomas Kramer, who happens to be a dear friend of me and Lenny. It almost seemed like a competition over who was better acquainted with Thomas. I personally did not see the big deal or find it inappropriate that Karent was inserting herself into the irritated clique that clearly did not appreciate her keen interest in her dear friend.
Everyone was formally introduced to the other loves of my life Puff (boxer) and Leo (Pomeranian). Currently these are my children. They do everything with me and Lenny, including sleeping in our bed. Some people may find that gross, but I wouldn't have it any other way. They are groomed weekly, and if they can't get an appointment, Daysy and I get down and dirty. Can’t have smelly dogs sleeping in the bed!
I agree with you Those women are very petty. It shows you how little life they actually have. Alexa should be ashamed of herself. Didn't she just almost die in a car accident? She needs to be putting good karma back into the Universe. being a spoiled, jealous, brat isn't going to work in her favor. Actually none of the women who are so mean to Karent.
Lisa- Let me first say, You are the real deal. You are an awesome addition to the show. Your loyalty to Joanna , Marta, & Karent show the true nature of who you are. You're a first class lady. You are also a great friend for helping Marta out. God will reward you in the end. I see babies in your future my dear!
I'll be honest, Your tag line threw me for a loop! You seem to know how to be a girlfriend Without bashing. Oh a wonder on this franchise! I want to encourage you to keep it up, But I know you have already taped the season, So we shall see what your qualities will be. But, initially, you do come across as a compassionate Woman who is blessed and not so threatened by other women. Personally, coming from the pacific north west (very au natural) It is difficult for me to conceptualize plastic surgery as a hobby, But you seem to have your TRUE heart in tact And for that, I honor you. Stay true.
Look at all this love people are giving you! After just being on the RHONJ blogs it's great to see positive people positively supporting a positive person (say that 5x fast!) like yourself! You have so much yet don't flaunt or brag about it and you are so down to earth it makes it easy for us all to relate to you and root for you! Keep being your sweet, funny,darling self! Love you!
Ur awesome gir! ur surprisingly the most level headed on the show. :) U definitely deserve all the good things that have come to u. !!!!!
I like how you treat everybody equally. I cant wait to see more of you. Maybe some of us can learn something from you like how you can hang with those girls but not be corrupted by them.
Lisa you are starting to become my favorite, because despite the glitz and the glam you just seem to want a normal life. The episdoe when you were discussing fertility reminded me of a technique my coworker tried in order to concieve. No alcohol for six months, take prenatal vitamins and good nourishment. Treat your body as if you are pregnant, I realize that in your social circle that might not be all that fun but a little sacrifice goes a long way. Best of luck @LisaHochstein .
You have surprised me. I really thought I wouldn't like you, but you don't brag about your money, or your beautiful home and you don't take part in the mean girl circle that is Adrianna, Lisa and Ana. I like your easy going attitude, don't feel the need to be catty, you're fun to watch!
Lisa, i enjoy you on the show, nice addition. Love that you have 2 dogs, I myself are a 2 dog owner. Lenny seems pretty cool. Dont get anymore surgery, overkill is no good and you look great as you are.
So far I think that you are a great addition to the cast! I love your love for your pups. They are both adorable. For living in Miami, you seem to be down to earth and compassionate. Don't forget who you are and where you came from though. I am a huge housewives fan and it is always so sad when a character starts out nice, sweet and down to earth, then turns into a crazy fame whore.
I think how you shared your fertility struggles was amazing. I really started to feel that you were real. I have recently had a miscarriage and I am still struggling to get the pieces back together. I always felt sorry for women who had miscarriages but I never had any idea how hard it is until I went through it. It just goes to show that people who have money and seem to have everything still have problems. I bet if you could you'd give everything you have for a baby. I would. I think it is so sad that we keep it private and go through this alone. A staggering amount of women go through this and it is just so strange no one really knows. Anyway, I think you are such a great wife and friend. I never even really liked the Miami housewives but you have changed my mind. I have an English bulldog who is almost 6 months and he is my baby, too. Sometimes I wonder if it is healthy how much I love him! Good luck and baby dust!
But by the way - your personality is the best. You are actually the smartest of all and have the most class.
I personally didn't like the scene where you and the ladies dicussed MaMa Elsa's appearance I thought you were unsympathetic about Elsa's plight. I'd like to see you once your Elsa's age, and you should hope not to run into the same misfortune Elsa did.
You and Joanna are my favorites. You really do call it like you see it. The comment section in everyone's blogs are a reflection of how the viewers feel about the cast, and I notice yours tend to be all positive. Keep on keeping on!
I absolutely love you! I think you are such a sweet sweet girl and I really hope that you and your husband are able to have children together soon.
I think that you are doing a great thing by letting Joanna's sister stay with you. I think that it is good for Joanna's relationship with Romain, Joanna's relationship with her sister, and Romain's relationship with her sister. In the end, I think it will really benefit everyone and I think that you are a really good friend for suggesting it.
I thought it was really discrediting, arrogant, ignorant, rude and malicious of Lea to say that it was 'cute' with how charitable you were. I think Lea is a mean and spiteful woman who has nothing better to do then to sit and gossip about people and judge them. I think she thinks that you are stupid and that you don't matter or are irrelevant to her. I think she thinks that she is the boss of the housewives as well as the boss of Miami and she isn't. I think she is also self centered and comes across as entitled and that she is really mean to you. I think she also mistakes your humor and personality for weakness and stupidness and looks at you as the underdog and the victim.
I do think that Karent can be over the top but I don't think that she is mean spirited or malicious with it. I think she always has a positive outlook and just seems so happy all the time, which is what the world needs more of. I think that she enjoys attention and the spotlight and unfortunately for her so does Adrianna. I think that Adrianna is jealous when Karent is getting more attention then her so tries to look for the negative things to talk about. I thought it was more embarrassing that Adrianna wanted to confront Karent at a charity event then have lunch with her and discuss her feelings. Probably because she wanted attention as well as the back up of her posse to join in.
I don't understand why everyone is ganging up on Karent. I also don't understand why Ana is still making a big deal about her relationship with Rudolfo. Honestly, it is none of her business. She gave Karent the information that she knew about the situation and that should have been the end of it. The decision is now up to Karent what to do with that information. Either way this is obviously a relationship that means a lot to her and she can't just end it overnight based on something that someone she barely knows says. You would think that this would be an opportunity for all the girls to come together and support a girl who is going through a difficult time. Someone who may be ending their relationship, someone who's boyfriend may be or may have cheated on them. Instead they are all being negative and judging her, which is so mean and really down putting for women. Rather then lifting women up and they are bringing her down and hurting her in the process. Karent is really lucky to have good friends like you and Joanna by her side to defend her!
You had me as soon as I saw your boxer, Puff!
I have a'fawn' boxer named Simon. Best breed in the world!!! (and I hop in the tub to bathe him, too.) :-)
Lisa, I really like u, I love all my dogs, they r loyal never talk back, and r pure love. My doggy Lelo is clean, I bath her often, it's the people who can't be bothered to groom their dogs where it's gross. Marta needs to get out on her own! Lenny and you should get your chemistry checked, some times it's an imbalance in fluids, sounds gross but it's the truth. I know a couple who had an issue, found out they needed to take a med, boom 8 kids later lol. Don't give up, take the big steps now, while not filming. I hope u accomplish your dream to have kids!
Lisa, I am so glad you are on the show this season. You are my favorite and I was upset that you weren't on nearly enough on last night's episode! I LOVE how you and Joanna stick up for Karent. I also think she is really sweet, gorgeous, and successful...and maybe that's her "downfall". It's really sad how catty and mean the other ladies are behind her back. It's almost funny how jealous they are of Karent, Joanna, and you because you 3 are so much prettier, thinner, and younger than they are. I love that you stay out of the drama and above all the cattiness. That being said, I do think you should let Lea know it's "cute" that she does her gala each year. Looking forward to your website!
PS- I loved bath time with you and your doggies. My pupcakes sleep in my bed with me too, and I wouldn't have it any other way :)
Once again you've hit the nail right on the head with your comments. The only thing I would have to say I disagree with you about is Romain and Martha. From an outsiders point of view Martha does seem lazy. As a performer myself, I understand the difficulties with working in the entertainment industry, especially in Miami. I don't nessecarily think this is the problem and agree with you that Martha is at an age where is trying to discover what she wants for herself. When Romain said that she hasnt gone to the grocery store and she's out late most nights; and her response that she 'mopped once last week' I was surprised to say the least. She doesn't seem soooo busy "working on her craft" that she only would have time to mop once. As an adult living in your family members house, I don't expect anyone to have to be a maid, but the action of helping out around the house says thank you and I RESPECT you. if she was so busy that she couldn't, I don't think Romain would be having an issue. (This is also the backbone of the issue because if she was keeping herself that busy, she probably wouldn't be in the situaction where she had to live with family.)
All that said, I don't think Martha is a bad person or she means harm. However she seems to need a "push out of the nest."
Lisa you seem like really good person. No doubt you and your husband will be great parents! Best of luck!
Lisa, you are so funny!! I think you are a genuine person and so full of life. I hope you and your husband get blessed with children in the future. Stay Fun & Sassy! Xoxoxo
Great blog, the girls are so petty when it comes to Karent. Last time I checked a wanna be hangs out at parties, poses nude to get in art exhibits and lives off a man to exist. Hmmm which lady does that sound like?
It is all very petty. But Karent does make me cringe. I do feel sorry for her because she is coming off the way the other ladies are saying and I feel sorry for her because she doesn't get it. You are a sweet girl.
I love the way you keep it real!! Good for you, please don't ever get involved with these women's pettiness!
Look forward to visiting your new website. I think you are smart to stay above the fray and not get too involved in all that catty and mean spirited gossip..its so gross! I think Karent is a lovely and kind person....hope you will continue to be her true friend.
Girl...are you sure your not from the South...LOL!
I love how down to earth and chill you are...and you have a great sense of humor...keep being real..Love it!
Lisa, glad I gave you a break. You are funny and so far, loyal (rare in this town)
Marysol, you seem too sensitive this season. We like the strong, professional gal!
Johanna, what a lovely pot stirrer! But I like you! You do love your sister, but she needs to learn to fly on her own.
Lea, a joke is NOT a joke if the only one laughing is you. Not even crazy Adrianna did! Whatever happened with Marysol, is sooooo long ago...who cares? Drop it!
Alexia, my favorite...till tonite! "Eager beaver" really? You jump on the "lets be jealous of Karent bcs she is more beautiful than me. Disappointed
Adrianna, a good friend NEVER talks behind her friends back,never. You brough her to the show? Then support her! Be a friend and show her how is "properly" done according to you!
Ana, all I can ask is: If you don't care...why the heck do you keep bringing them (Rodolfo/Karent) up? Enough!
Karent, you are beautibul and successful...just tone it down a bit :)
You seem like a very nice lady in a happy home with a wonderful husband. I hope your dreams for children come true. However, there is always the option of adoption if you are unable to have your own children. Best wishes.
