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

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.
