Marysol Patton

Marysol feels fate ensured she and Ana had each other during the hard times.

on Nov 12, 20120

It was more than just coincidence that Ana and I were simultaneously going through separations from our husbands. Ana has always been a dear friend to me, especially through the painful times I had experienced trying to decide if divorcing was the right choice. When I saw Ana moving out of the office she built with Robert so many decades ago, I couldn't help but cry. I know it took every ounce of emotional strength she had to pack those boxes and walk away from the last string that attached her to Robert on a daily basis.

Lisa's talk with Karent was another difficult scene to watch. I know first-hand what it is like to have the years fly by and never being able to conceive. Now it's too late for me, but Lisa is young and strong and I know she will be a mother, somehow, one day. Like Karent said, sometimes our desires and God's plan do not coincide at the exact same time.

Quit playing the victim and being a hater and participating in the bullying.  You, Ana, Alexia and Adrienna are horrible this season.  And just jealous apparently of everyone.  How can you all be mad at someone for smiling or just being happy.  Would you rather they be bitter and angry and catty like you?

Regarding Elaine getting in your face and standing in your way of leaving, that was totally harassment, maybe assault, considering he IS a man whether he likes it or not, and he's extremely  large and intimidating.  He was threatening you, simply, and trying to lure you into a verbal, and likely physical, altercation.  

 

You were well within your rights to slap him with your pocketbook!  Seriously though, if you feel physically threatened in the moment, you have a right to physically defend yourself, within reason. 

 

That being said, you did the right thing by not engaging Elaine, as Ana advised, because that's EXACTLY what he wanted.  I would fully expect Elaine to assault you physically, whether it's slapping, spitting, or throwing a drink at you, so walking away was the right thing to do. 

 

Just because Elaine wants to be a woman, DOES NOT MAKE HIM ONE!  It is not appropriate for him to confront you ladies with the intent of starting a catfight.

 

PLEASE REMOVE ELAINE FROM THE SHOW AND STOP GIVING HIM FREE EXPOSURE!

The only reason you were asked back for season 2 Marysol is because of your eccentric mother (Elsa). It looks like Thomas puts her in her place in tonight's episode though and its about time.

I think it is very sad that you can be so mean to Karent. Talking about her behind her back. Yet with Elaine you seem to run away from her. Its not nice to be picked on is it? Why can you dish it about Karent but not take it? I am very disappointed with your attitude this season.

Dude Marisol, for someone who wants to portray herself as smart you sure lack on reading comprehension. Even the journalist who wrote the article said you chicks dont know how to read, she said it yourself that YOU guys are putting the journalist's words in Karent's mouth. 

It was the journalist that said you were all botox for brains, and you know what? she is damn right!

"this isn't a conversation"??? why were you all ladies gathered at alexia's house then?? you were very rude to Karent, you didn't allow her to give an explanation of the article..seems to me that you ladies just want to be mad at karent and not get anything resolved..i really felt that that meeting was an ambush..Shame on you

Marysol you are the only classy person there i was going to say you should have let her answer but i just read the article below someone posted it  and she said it herself she's going to smile through everything to make you all look bad while stirring the pot that part she left out ! a title and a publicist can't buy her class ! she is pathetic and you are above that !

You should let Karent speak, it's rude of you to say what you want to say and not allow the other party to express their feelings. You need to read the article again and this time, read it slowy, so you will understand. You're mad for no reason, if the article doesn't fit you, then don't own it. You're just being a bully like Ana, Alexis and crazy Adriana.

A "discussion" is a two way street.  Your lunch from hell was an ambush of Karent.  That was apparent when you said that Karent could not speak.  Wow.

Marysol, I understand you wanted to express your "hurt" at the article, however, it is also simple common courtesy to allow the other person to speak.  And even if you felt she interrupted you without allowing you to finish, you could have stated so, and then allowed her to finish.  I think you did jump on the bandwagon because you are now following the other "girls" who are so bent on jumping and attacking any little thing Karent says or does.  You seem to be very independent so please don't allow these "girls" to think for you.

 

As for the "peace" made between Joanna and Adriana, I truly felt Joanna was more sincere. Adriana just didn't want a lawsuit on her hands, and was just going thru the motions.  Again, actions speak louder, so right after she decides to leave instead of continuing to interact. Adriana does not fool too many people.

The original article in question, that has everyone up in arms, posted on March 19, 2012:

 

'Just when we thought we've unearthed them all, we uncover yet another new cast member of the retooled Real Housewives of Miami. This one, Karent Sierra, likes to multi-task. She's an actress, a spokesperson, a model and . . . a dentist..... We asked her what in her right (?) mind would have her subject herself to such a thing and she told us bluntly that she wanted to prove to viewers that not all the women on these shows are classless fame addicts with low IQs and Botox for brains....She also tells us that yes, there's fabricated tension between her and all the other ladies who, uh, drill her on camera for, among other things, being a dentist and having a publicist.  Sierra says she refuses to stoop to the level of some of the other gals--no table throwing, no screaming, no cursing. So what then? "I'll just kill 'em with kindness," she says, sharpening her teeth. That, or laughing gas.'

 

This is what the whole bruhaha is about?!

 

The only thing in quotes (Karents actual words) were that she'd  'kill 'em with kindness'.

 

I think you're all making a mountain out of a molehill.

Marysol,

Ashamed of yourself.  You are desperate to continue on the show and your drama is below the belt.  YOU OWE KARENT A VERY SINCERE AND PUBLIC APOLOGY. 

 

KAREN IS TRULY A CLASSIC LADY.  you should learn from her.

 

The person who wrote the famous blog, Lesley Abravanel, made and official and public statement saying Karent DID NOT say those things about the group. The writer took full responsibility and stated it is her personal opinion and stands by it.

 

Bravo please post my blog.

Mum's apron strings are stretching very thin, or maybe it's her pearls or marabou jacket. Whatever it is that ties you to her, it's time to snip. Time to forge an identity of your own. What will it be? Who shall you be? If Mum was the looker in her day, you could be the_______? Go on. Have a go. It's time.

 I love  Elsa, but it"s Marisol's storyline were watching and Elsa is part of it ! she adds CLASS to the show  something that is lacking espcially in this cast ! she is classy, sincere, intelligent and has a charming personality and is blessed to have a wonderful lovely mother, she is my favorite!  Marisol don't lower yourself to argue with that drunk Joanna or fake Karent, money couldn't buy them class and you my dear are the classies by far !

For someone who's storyline is ONLY relevant bc we all love and adore your mother, I'd really be ashamed of your actions. Who do you think you are to state this "wasn't a conversation"!? That was the entire point of that meeting. did you miss that!?!! If Adriana and alexia weren't so disgusting, you might be down on their level, but you're in luck bc they are far worse! Get off your high horse!

Mar Y Sol I did not watch the show it was 11pm isla de la mona time, and I passed out with the remote stuck in my right shoulder! I read a recap by realitytea, Now like always I do not expect for my comment to be published to u. The reason is cause I broke your name and I said isla  de la mona. My spanish "words" bugs the hell out of Bravo.

You were my favorite HWOM last season but this season you are letting me down. You don't have to worry about Karent ruining your repatriation you are doing a good job of it yourself. I think you owe Karent an apology for not allowing her to reply to your rant. If that is the way your marriage was no wonder you are getting a divorce. I hope you go back to the way you were last season.

Since you have continually defended the integrity of your columnist/blogger friend Lesley Abravenel...how do you feel about her comment about your mother posted on 9/28 that reads "Patton is the Honey Boo Boo Child/Big Ang/Snooki of this franchise."?

katebreadandwater
katebreadandwater

Why didn't you let Karent speak? You told her how you felt and then said to her that you didn't want to hear what she had to say.  That is not an attempt at making peace. Your attitude when she walked in the door told the whole story.  You've already had her tried and guilty in your mind and now you're hanging her in front of all of your friends (and the world).  Just be honest...

Marysol, I'm going to give you a pass on this episode because usually you are very kind and gracious. Now say this next part in Mama Elsa's voice... "But I am VERY disappointed in you Marysol!  You were not acting like a lady should act."

Why didn't you let Karent speak? She was polite enough to listen to you and the other mean girl's b.s.  She is more gracious and kind than any of you.  Also, prettier then the rest of the group - with the exception of Joanna.  Seems like everyone is just jealous and petty.  Get over yourselves.

Marysol, I think you had every right to address Karent, but why didn't you let her speak? I read the blog in question and she was not quoted saying those things. If the blogger is your friend, why didn't you call her up and get her side? Couldn't she have just interviewed you instead? I understand that in PR your reputation is everything, but did you take that into consideration when you decided to do this show, or when you engage in catty conversation with the other ladies? It wasn't your finest moment when you all made passive aggressive comments about Karent or, even worse, talking about someone else in another language IN FRONT OF THEM. Please don't get sucked into the catty beahvior.

I really liked you last season. This time around its hard to believe that Adriana could mislead you so much! Stop being mean and going along with Ana, alexia,and Adriana about Karent. I think you are truly a sweet and genuine girl, don't let Adriana and Alexia contaminate you.

didleesquat

Maya, if you had to read what she had to say to know that was her 'intent', then you saw what the viewers saw.....SHE WASN'T GIVEN TO CHANCE TO ANSWER! The only way she could have gotten a word in was to scream over all the rest of the screaming ladies making herself look as bad as yall looked yourself! So, why would she do that? Why not just sit there and smile at you idiots acting liking crazed, jealous women? Sounds like she's too smart for you hooligan's that are trying to make her feel so bad that she'll leave the show. Maybe a larger bottle of Holy Water will help you ladies. But it's nice to see you had to read her blog to comment since it was so clear she wasn't allowed to speak anyway.

@mrsdonut I agree, there is a mountain being made of a molehill here. If no one had interrupted Adrianna the very first time she tried to pull Karent aside, none of this would have happened. Although I like Alexia, I wish she hadn't gotten involved at her Venue party, but it was her party, so I guess she had the right to. Obviously they have Adrianna and Marysol bring these things up at events to create good tv, but wouldn't it have been simpler to have a sit down with overly dramatic music at a restaurant whose name and / or decor also adds to the ambiance to hash this out? Is that too Jersey? If so, sorry...Anyway, just a thought...

 @mrsdonut I agree...It's sounds like Karent could have been referring to any of the housewife cast from around the country!  NY, NJ, BH, OC, ATL...any!  Or she could have been referring to past housewives from Season 1 not Season 2.  Who knows??  Karent mentioning "table throwing" was obviously a reference to a certain NJ housewife.  Whats the big deal??  I think the mean girls were looking for something and they found it in this article.

@janetz i hear ya janetz. Funny thing tho...It's not that I even really like Karent ..I am just so disgusted by the way she was treated that I find myself writing to defend her. Its weird. I'm wondering how many other people are more passionate about how she is being treated than how they actually feel about her as a person. Maybe she is a bit of a pot-stirrer and likes attention. And I probably would have been annoyed by the article if I were them. It's all just so ridiculously extreme. Seems like all the drama would make for good tv but it's obviously backfiring because the ratings are dropping every week.

 @janetz  Of all viewers, you'd be the one to understand the bullies. Of course they are all offended. Karent is better than the other women. It's a fact. In every way. There's just no arguing it.

 @janetz

 You're not in the minority- we're all human and have feelings.

I can honestly say that I would probably be hurt too, if I were the other ladies. I guess from an outsider's perspective though, it all seems kind of petty.  :-)  

 

However, I would have at least allowed Karent to explain her side.(I'm still on the fence about her, but it's only right to hear her out)       I would also take a good look at the article that was published, to see how it was actually written/worded.

 

I think that this blog DOES insinuate that Karent actually said those things by the way it was written:

 

' We asked her what in her right (?) mind would have her subject herself to such a thing and she told us bluntly that she wanted to prove to viewers that not all the women on these shows are classless fame addicts with low IQs and Botox for brains'

 

And it is a little misleading. The writer had no quotation marks in her statement but she words it to insinuate that Karent actually said those things ....in a 'candid' conversation she probably did say something along those lines to the reporter- just not those specific words.The writer is being provacative, while at the same time, not selling Karent out because she can always point out that there were no quotation marks around those words. It's like a loophole. Pretty clever. It's just too bad that it caused all this unnecessary drama.

 Here's the thing, you consistently overstate things "Stalking" "bullying" when you're the one ridiculing viewers for their opinions. Calling them names. Second, this is Marisol's page and you're on again about Karent, triggerin all these responses. And ps. you're hardly a victim of anything other than your self. Just like passive Marisol. Blaming the world for her hurt feelins.

These Miami women need time to process what you wrote. I've never known the HW's to take to commenting on their blogs against the viewers before now. It's quite funny how obvious it is that they are out in 'full drag' taking up for each others behavior by posting. They really should just say who they are and be done with it.
