Thug in a Cocktail Dress

Lisa thought Elaine could have picked a more appropriate time and place to confront Marysol.

The women and I were invited to a luncheon and fashion show at Lisa Pliner’s home to see her new line of shoes. When I greeted Elaine, I felt her aggression. I knew something was about to go down. I felt that the one thing she had on her mind was to confront Marysol, believing that she tried to get her UN-hired as Lisa Pliner’s MC.

I disagreed with Elaine’s approach completely. It was the wrong time, wrong place, and wrong attitude. She looked like a “thug in a cocktail dress.” I understand she was angry, but the pointing, tone of voice, and the chasing made the guests uncomfortable. Although Elaine is dressed as a woman, she/he is still a man. This issue should have been addressed after the event and in private.



Next we see Adriana’s pirate ship is looking like a ship wreck! LOL. I do have a pretty good imagination and can visualize the outcome. I know it’s going to be fantastic.Karent graciously invited all the women to Thomas Kramer’s home to host a dinner party. Anyone who knows Thomas understands how big his personality is and understands what to expect. I enjoy his unique sense of humor and find him entertaining. He sometimes comes across as inappropriate but doesn't mean any harm; that’s just how he is. I felt Joanna and Ana overreacted to Thomas’ comments. I know he was not trying to be malicious. I have been the butt of his jokes in the past, and I simply laugh it off or give it back to him in joking manner.

Joanna and Adriana seemed as though they were making an effort to get over their differences to move on. I guess if you saw them on Watch What Happens Live, you know how that turned out! It seems everything was fine until the episode at my house with their physical fight came out. Perhaps it rehashed memories and emotions. People who saw the fight of course picked sides and that helped fuel the fire. I do hope they can move on because I like them both. I have not taken sides and don’t intend to.

Lea then jumps into a conversation Marysol was having to defend James. And now almost all of us were in a bad mood and arguing. I can’t blame Thomas for getting so angry. I lost it at my lingerie event also when my guests were behaving poorly. The problem is these women pick the most inappropriate place to start this nonsense. Although I really like Ana, I think she was out of line by insulting the host in his home. I think it would have been better if she had just excused herself instead of escalating it and then being kicked out. If someone insulted me personally in my own home, I would have done the same thing. I however do not condone Thomas’ harsh words to Elsa. He went too far with that, and I know it made me and everyone else uncomfortable.

I did my best to calm everyone down -- something I am good at. Thankfully I managed to get Joanna to come back to the dinner. I think she realized Thomas was simply joking earlier. I really wanted everyone who remained to end the night on a good note, so I decided to make an ass out of myself and work the pole to change the mood. I think I succeeded. I don’t think Thomas Kramer had a problem with it, why else would someone install stripper poles on their dining room table?
Until next Thursday friends! Xo

Lea's Double Standards

Adriana explains why she was so surprised by Joanna and Lea's behavior.

I would like to start by saying that I tried my best to bond with Joanna and remain friendly after attending her bachorelette party and wedding. I truly was hoping for a budding friendship. All season long, she criticized me in her weekly blogs, criticized my wedding, and even then I took the high road and didn't engage in the low blows and continued hostility she has demonstrated towards me for a while now. However, I couldn’t stay quiet any longer when she started to attack my credibility. Enough is enough! I've learned that bullies like her will not stop the attack until you stand your ground. She showed me her true colors when she stated she wanted “to rip my head off.” Such aggressive behavior like that could no longer be ignored. Joanna is always stating that she is beautiful and because of that she thinks she has license to act UGLY!

Furthermore, I couldn't remain silent while she was attacking Lisa and being so cold to her and her struggle with infertility. Claiming that Lisa is a party girl and is always drinking is not the attitude of a friend. Joanna and Lisa had been friends and even had dinner together the night before and all was well between them, until Joanna decided to turn on Lisa... I was shocked, how can a friend blatantly attack her friend with such coldness?! She should not talk about things she knows nothing about!

Another shocker was to see Lea sitting there silently and not coming to Lisa's defense... She crucified me this season and did a complete character assassination of my person for not speaking up when Ana attacked her last year, so I was very surprised to see her do the exact same thing to her new bestie... Double standards, as usual!

In conclusion, don't judge others unless you have walked a mile in their shoes!
