We all have a lot if healing to do within our personal lives and with one another apparently. I guess Joanna decided the best way to accomplish that would be on an island in the midst of a storm miles from home with no escape. This is not my idea of fun, and honestly it sounds like a recipe for disaster. The problems started right away with Adriana packing her entire closet as if she was going to the grand ball. How in the world she packed all of that but managed to forget her passport is beyond me. I thought I was yet to master the art of packing, but Adriana has me beat! I unsuccessfully suggested she have her housekeeper taxi it over to her. If she had listened to me, she probably would have made it!
Since Joanna invited us, we had dibs on the ocean view house. Thank god, because the view was absolutely breathtaking! I would definitely want to come back to Bimini with Lenny. I can be a real brat when it comes to getting my way sometimes, so of course I made a beeline to the master bedroom, but the ladies weren't having it! I thought it was hilarious that they literally dragged me out kicking and screaming. I didn't mind sharing a room with Karent at all. Thank god she doesn't snore! It was lovely to get to spend so much time with her and really bond.
It became evident why Karent and Rodolfo’s relationship was such a hot topic from the get go after seeing the women’s agenda for her. Unfortunately, then Karent was blinded by love and didn't see the truth about her relationship.
Your one of my favorite housewives!!!! I'm so glad that you saw through a few your cast mates mean girl behavior towards Karent and called them out for it. Good for you!!!
I hate to be the one to break up the tea party but this chick is not the smartest of them all.
How can she not see through that Karent lady? Lame.
Lisa I love your personality. You are so cute, and you are composed. You always take the high road and act like a lady. I havent seen you try to hurt a fly, or backstab your friends. You can see that you are a beautiful person internally as well as externally. No wonder you landed such a successful man. He saw you as a good woman and real wife material. Keep being wiser than your years. I wanna see you with your babies. They will be worth the wait. You spill over with soccer mom and motherliness. You are always mothering your friends. I also love the way you respect your man. I like you best.
You can tell when a women is truly happy with her life because they are just like you :) At first when they showed you I thought she is a miami barbie going to complain or act a fool about her rich life lol - I WAS WRONG!! You are a beautiful barbie but aslo sooo mature,sweet,loyal and NORMAL :) I wish you all the luck in whatevet you do because you deserve it! The older ladies need to take lesson on class from you and thats a shame because you are the baby in the group. Smh
You are beautiful, inside and out. Very kind girl, I am glad to see you supporting Karent, the barracudas had their plan to hurt the poor girl, It backfire on them big time! Being cheated on can be fixed, but other conditions are not. Happy Holidays to you and your lovely husband, I really mean it, you are a kind, lovely person and deserve much happines.
You are the sweetest woman on the show and such a great friend! I wish you all the best and hope your dreams of having a baby comes true very soon!
I love you! You are such a refreshing addition to this group! Although, I don't like how the women chose to share the information with Karent and the environment that they shared this information with her in ... I DO NOT believe that their intentions were completely in bad taste. Lea is the kind of person who wants to get things out in the open and get them over with. I believe that was her intention. You are a gentler person who cares about the heart and feelings. Karent is still a teenager in some ways. She chooses to brush things under the rug and not deal with directly. She tends to whisper and stir instead of be direct and up front. This is why the women are confused with her.
You are definitely the realest of this "Real" housewives group. May the holidays bring you a little bundle of joy! Sending lots of love from a fellow south Florida gal
I'm so glad you see alexia's mean spirit...i was so glad when joanna mentioned that people like to talk and brought up alexia's own marriage, she deserved that. Just the fact that alexia took the article on the trip is horrible!! she had it all planned out she was so excited telling all the ladies about it....horrible! as the season goes on i'm liking you more and I totally can relate to your struggles on a successful pregnancy :/ best of luck
Why do you reiterate the erroneous message that people are trying to hurt Karent? Joanna and Karent stirred the pot the entire season and it became so old and annoying. As the youngest member you naturally take Joanna's side as you call the other women "old". You are as rude and devisive as much as you have incinuated so in others......
So Lisa you said you want feed back, and that you read comments.( i hopeso). Anyway you are my favorite Miami wife. I truly enjoy watching you, you are funny,honest and gorgeous. I dont agree that Alexia and team were out to deliberately hurt Karent. Karent is so fake and such a trouble maker from episode 1. Now she plays victim. If she's your friend,so be it. Stick up for her if you want. I hope you have all the babies you and Lenny want. You both would make great parents(frm what we can see). I am writing this on the heels of the masacre in Ct. God Bless the families. Sometimes at times like this,I ask is there really a God? Love you!!
You are very sweet and genuine and I respect the fact that you are a good friend to Karent instead of jumping on the mean girl bandwagon. There is no doubt in my mind that you will get everything your heart desires. Honey some of us have to get up and work everyday rather we like it or not. You have the luxury of being a housewife for a living, please enjoy that! Best wishes to you.
I really like you Lisa, you are an honorable and loyal friend and that is worth its weight in gold. I wasn't sure about you at first, it was hard to get past what appeared phoniness but in fact you are the real deal and could certainly teach a bunch of those hateful mean women a thing or two especially Alexia, she is EVIL!
I hope you and Lenny get your wish for a baby...you will make a wonderful mom!
You're a really good friend. I am proud of you that you are unafraid to speak your mind about the other women's behavior. I feel like I don't know that much about Karent because she is so guarded. You have revealed yourself to be a kind and compassionate person. You know her better than we do and if you are standing by her then she must be a pretty nice lady.
Lisa I really like you, Joanna and Lea...I do think Karent is clueless! But I like u a lot because despite of being princess, you have a lit humbleness and kindness that I don't see in any of the others!
Honestly, I don't think Karent means any harm, she doesn't think before acting on certain situations. Which seems to be the reason why the others did so much talk about it beforehand. Alexa should have told lisa, being Karent's friend, then Lisa would have told karent. that simple. things are being done to look "right" "caring" but theirs double motives!!!
watch your self Lisa!
Karent has been nasty to the other women since episode 1. She accused Ana of going after "her boyfriend", which obviously never happened. I have no idea what you see in Karent, but no one else sees it.
No, we learned in the last episode, that the messages being sent to Rodolfo were from his other girlfriend, Ana Belena ! But Karent at the time didn't know that !! Anyway, I still feel for the way the others set her up and appreaciate the way Lisa is being her friend !!
don't keep those blinders on to Karents ways... you're being played
But YOU aren't new to the game because we see YOU playing hem too
Don't be surprised that the other girls weren't emotional when you say yourself that they are not friends with Karent. I really think it was in poor taste they should just have advised Alexia to not say anything in the bathroom, none of them got along with Karent. Marysol obviously felt the same since at the table she knew they were all going to look like B(&(@%s. I like you and think you are a sweet person and I wish you the best in having the family that you and your husband so desire. I have a lot of friends that had problems getting pregnant and now they have children of their own just relax (that's the impossible key) it will happen.
Lisa, I like you and I like that you like Karent, but I don't care for Karent too much. Karent does play the copycat card and she's the queen of denial in Miami, but the fact that you look over that gives kudos to you. I wish you luck with having a baby, my best advise would be to RELAX! I truly believe that stress plays a factor in evolution with (flight or fight) and that flight or fight mentaliity equates to hormonal changes that prevent pregnancy (evolution), circle of life. Both times that my husband and I conceived was during times when I was totally relaxed.....Lea made a great point in just forget about it and it will happen, forget about it = stress free and that's my point. Stress can prevent pregnancy, so just give that a try. The first time we were snowed in and I didn't have to go to work (stress free right there) the second time I was drunk off champaign New Years' Eve (no stress there either) all of the times prior to that for two years I had little sleep, worked constantly, etc.. etc... Good luck! ...just don't drink after your pregnant, but you knew that ; )
Lisa I wish you and your husband much success in your baby making!! I was 30 before I had my first. Thirty four when I had my daughter.....You can plan just about anything except when you will get pregnant. Relax!!
Lisa, I love love love you! You are sweet, considerate and have a really good heart. It's so obvious watching you. I wish you all the best and know you're going to be an amazing mom. Hang in there. It WILL happen. Bless your heart beautiful!
I disagree with you. Wouldn't you want to know? If they didn't say anything then you would accuse them of laughing behind her back. Women need to stick together and Karent is kind of a strange girl. She is more for herself. Not a girl's girl. I think that you are sticking up for a lost friendship. She will never defend you.
Thank you Lisa, when you stood, raised your glass and said God Bless America and reminded everyone that they were all immigrants, I started to cry. After Elsa called our sitting President an animal, about taxes and your wealthy wealthy mom-in-law saying she would choose to whom she would give her money instead of, we assume, paying more tax in order to help. I think you are a gem and waaay more intelligent than some realize. I salute you cutie for giving us a moment that was real.
Lisa, you are so sweet and have such a big heart. You made me cry with the conversation you had with Lea, listen to her wise words of wisdom. Power of prayer too. My best friend had 3 miscarriages and now she has two daughters. Keep the faith and focus like Lea said. Wishing you all the best.
Hay beautiful! Stop the pressure! Your gonna go mad, a baby will come when its time. Dont say you want a boy, b/c thats what lennie wants, at this point take what you can get, and pray for health. Also, if you have thoughtsdont think your marriage can survive w/o a baby, then there is bigger problems that need to be fixed first.
You are lovely inside out and keep it that way. I hope your wish comes true. What Lea advised was right on. Relax and accept what may come your way. Pray also helps.
Those who have you for a friend are really fortunate. You are so honest, so spot on every time you say something, so caring, spontaneous, fun and intelligent. It is also good to see somebody who is not a bit intimidated by Lea. You, Karent and Joanna are such a great trio. You met on the set and became friends and those "original" bit.hes know each other for years and still they can't talk to each other without screaming.
About a baby - keep on trying, it will come the moment you stop stressing about it. You'll be the best mother ever. Take care.
You are the best! Definitely my favorite on this show. You're fun and you have a sweet personality. I also like how you can see right through the mean girls and are not afraid to speak your mind.
Lisa I like you, but stop protecting Karent to a fault! She is old enough to stand up for herself and not be so blinded by love that she wont accept the truth. I didnt see as many smiles and smirks as you when the girls were in the bathroom discussing Rodolfo. I will not deny that I think some got satisfaction out of it, but I dont think they were all coming from an evil place. Ana deserved vindication that she was not the one texting Rodolfo and Adrianna seemed to feel Karent should know because she had been in the same situation and wished someone had informed her instead of letting her walk around like a blind fool. Karent should feel embarrassed. Rodolfo has a dishonest vibe to him anyways....
@jbey - Agreed! Lisa and Joanna obviously thought so too, since they wanted to check him out better with their guys, also. I like Lisa and think she will be a great mom, but she is very naive when it comes to Karent.
@jbey I thought I was the only one! I like Lisa a lot but the accusations she is throwing around aren't fully the truth. I don't think Alexia wanted to be in the conversation with Karent to see Karent's hurt face. It was to take accountability. However, when the usual defensive comments (Karent and Joanna) happened Alexia also got defensive. Everyone else didn't need to join that convo which put Karent on the spot but I didn't see smiles or smirks. Yet, these women all throw so much nastiness each other's way no one is innocent! I felt for Karent because like Adriana said in the bathroom, "I wouldn't wish a cheating partner on my worst enemy". Yet, Karent has also been very smug regarding the whole Rodolfo situation so I can see where the resentment or "jealousy" (as Karent likes to think) comes from towards her. Even when they went to the replay - The entire group discussing the text messages to Ana, Karent said oh nooo Rodolfo showed me the messages you sent him last night. Then Ana suggested Rodolfo was lying, blaming her as the 'Ana' texting him and Karent dismissed it saying Ana liked him and he wasn't into drama and stuck her nose up to Ana and the others. The comments she made saying 'Ana wishes she dated him' and 'Rodolfo doesn't like older women (so he couldn't like Ana)' also contribute to the cold handling of the matter. It is too bad because Rodolfo completely sensed the dynamic and used it to cover his dirt.
LolabellO jbey It was not anyone's place to bring it up period. How Karent reacts is her business........Good lord I wish women would support each other instead of tearing women down.
You're so adorable!! I love the fact that you are so pretty and such a nice person! I wish the best for you and please don't EVER act like that ugly Adrianna! She's nasty!!! wwwwwww
Dear lovely Lisa, You have brought interest to the show without all the hate and drama. Wishing you and your family the best. See you next season ! HRISTOS RADAJETSJA
Who knew you could turn the tables so smoothly? Really good job, you and Joanna. Boy o boy, they did not see it coming! Even Lea going after Marysol was quite a deflection from Karent!
I think the point was made and taken, not one of them is above being IN the rumor mill!
I hope your dreams come true. Lea was right about not letting the past color the future. Do what you can. Be proactive. Turn some tables!
Dear Lisa - I just needed to give you a few words of encouragement and give you an idea, on the pregnancy issue. - Drinking Tea works!! I have read & heard this - I am also a Tea drinker. Tetley English Blend is my tea of choice. Also laying off the alcohol might be a good idea - I don't know how much you intake of that, just thought I'd mention. You will be the mother you want to be !! However that is - I myself am adopted - which is also an option - Sometimes people adopt, lose the stress & then become pregnant too.
I know we watchers really don't see everything on the episodes - However the feeling I get from The Karent issue is that the woman were coming from a Good Place - Not a mean one. Plus I realize this is months after everything we are seeing... Good Luck & Many Prayers of Blessings to you and your husband!! I sincerely hope you read my comment if you've never heard of the Tea thing....
Bonding moments with Joanna and Lea were sweet and moving, but the highlight apart from Elsa chastising the "girls," was you and Joanna taking on the other side of the table!
In effect, you showed them how rumours can float around. The one about Alexia's spouse, whom I've wondered if he even existed, shut her right up. Even when rumours are untrue, I do think the women should know what they are and that they are out there! Just kidding. With this lot, you'd be running to them daily.But they got a taste of it.
Karent could not ask for better friends and back up!
Lastly, you are young. Good things will come your way.
Rockerman I totally agree! Alexia's face was priceless when that comment about her husband was made! she is evil! to think i liked her last season! she really showed her true colors this season! I honestly thought she would stay away from drama and focus on her family but she's actually bringing the drama on the show and hurting karent.
Smiles, smirks and pleasure? were we watching the same clip? It didn't look like they were being malicious... and let's not forget that they accused ANA of having a "thing" with R and she is vindicated wih this story... Karent has made herself look like she was faking a relationship while he was out doing his thing in Mexico. Did she already know?How could she NOT, he's an actor and not exactly an introvert. ALSO, you could have taken her aside in another room and told her what they all know but you didn't YOU chose to tell her in front of the other women who were trying to make her see that she was being wronged. All parties invovled were guilty of some hurt during this season. The only problem that these women have with Karent is her fakeness... why can't you understand that?
VanessaNC - I agree - I didnt see as many smiles and smirks as Lisa seemed to. I do think Ana deserved to vindicated from the episode where Karent assumed that it was she who was texting Rodolfo.But I also think that she should have been allowed to find out in private. But then, this wouldnt be Real Housewives if that happened, would it?
jbey I agree 100% with you and VanessaNC. It's quite annoying that all the blames is being put on the ladies for pointing out public information and Karent's reaction even in this latest episode is not a normal reaction a woman has if they found that out if they were in a real relationship unless she already knew about it. Then calling off the relationship a week before that episode is such a publicity move and so suspect!
