A recent article had come out in our local newspaper, The Miami Herald, which was rather insulting and had been eating away at me for a few weeks. The article painted a disrespectful and insulting picture of the hard working women in our cast, and quite frankly the entire Housewives franchise.
As a result of this article, you may have noticed a lack of patience on my part towards Karent and her recent social blunders. No, I am not jumping on the band wagon to beat up on Karent, because quite frankly, I do not dislike her. I did however think this article was inappropriate, insulting, and could have been completely avoided.
I arrived at Lisa’s lingerie fundraising event quite happy to be there. I think Lisa did a great job, and I see many philanthropic strides in her future. I had not been at the event more than three minutes and was barely clinging to my cocktail when Karent swoops in to tell me that my attire is not acceptable to Joanna’s liking. Really? I mean, I barely know Karent. We have exchanged a few hellos and glances up until this point. In fact, she hardly knew any of us. Furthermore, if Joanna was so upset, she could have very easily come up to me and we would have discussed it, which we eventually did later that evening.
This welcome to the party "greeting" by Karent irritated me tremendously; and as we saw in this episode, it clearly set the tone for the disaster that became the rest of the evening. While no one really wants to attack or shift the blame to anyone specifically, we also cannot ignore the fact that Karent was somehow connected to the unfortunate events that followed.
As for your Mother... I love her... at least she has an excuse for her funny feistiness... Elsa ROCKS this show!!!
Sorry Marisol but you my dear are an "Uni-embolsada", smiles but ready to join the gossip group... I honestly thought you were more of an open minded and kind individual... instead you've proven yourself to be childish... snotty... and a plain cry baby. Easily offended and just as easy to offend others.
Marysol, you & your mom are fantastic. You seem like a sweet lady. Karent had zero right to warn you as you just got there as you stated your not BFF's. If Joanna was offended she could've talked to you in private. It's not everyone's mission to please Joanna. I'm sure when you left the house you didn't even think of her. She wears leather so she's a hypocrite. Karent pretending to protect Joanna is absurd, who needs protection from that? Like if she saw you w/ the fur her eyes would bleed. Keep doing what your doing & hold your head up high.
Marisol- you need to be careful on your words ‘Karent and the clown comment’ Don’t throw rocks when you live in a glass house!
Joe Francis- he is such scum; what guy kisses and tells?
It doesn’t seem in your nature to be mean or mean spirited; DON’T let Adriana influence your behavior- ‘just know your place’ hahahah too funny (who says that)
thenerve Are you serious? What guy kisses & tells, your talking about Girls Gone Wild, Joe Francis. He made his millions doing just that, exposing girls. I believe Joanna did it, if she didn't she wouldn't be so defensive. She is now saying Marta was underage & if Joe doesn't retract she will get him arrested for being with an underage girl. So basically, if Joe shuts up & retracts she doesn't care if her sister was underage as along as she looks good. If he retract she will overlook the underage crime? She's one hell of a good sister. Sorry Marta take one for the team or your sister will not let you hang out with her rich friends.
Last time I checked, Miami is part of the United States of America, and with that comes the freedom to choose. You chose to wear a heirloom to a party hosted by Lisa. If Lisa did not want fur or feathers at her party, I'm sure she would have mentioned this on her invitations. It was not Karent, or Joanna's business as to what you were wearing, and they had no right to act so inappropriately. Joanna's remarks about you were bullyish.....she should stick to bullying her sister and leave the rest of you ladies out of it.
You are usually beyond reproach but that fur! You did not think that choice out. Love you and your Mom.
You picked the wrong side, it is now plain to see. Had you asked first about the article, you might have realized that the author took liberties with what was actually said. Wouldn't you wish to be told by a friend if some sleaze was bragging about having sex with you? I thought it was admirable of Karent to confront that guy and bring it immediately to Joanna's attention. Do you really want to associate yourself with an out of control woman who goes around punching someone in the face when she is told off for trash talking?
Marysol, you are my favorite and i love your mom ! you are such a classy lady ! that Joanna is a drunk she should worry about her little sister Marta who's high and crying all the time and ready to sleep with her sister's left overs its Marsha and Jan from the BRADY BUNCH only a Girls Gone Wild version ! and they worry about fur? HAY PLIZ HAY PLIZ, as your mom would say they got bigger fish to fry chica !
Ok.. so tonight was the first time I tuned in to the Miami housewives and from what I saw, the only person that has any sense seems to be Joanna's fiance. Joanna acted a fool at the lingerie party. She completely embarassed herself by starting something that she couldn't finish. I am glad that she's compassionate about her cause but she can't "police" everyone who chooses to wear fur as WRONG as it is. And I do have to agree with Marisol about the way that Karent handled the fur situation. It wasn't her place to say anything. But I will have to say that it was very entertaining! It was everything that a reality TV was meant to be. Full of drama and foolishness. All the "characters" are there to make for a good laugh and the "OMG.." and the "No she DID'ENT!"
Oh and Audriana, you had every right to smack Joanna. She was and is very irritating. From what I saw, Joanna stuck her nose in something that didn't involve her and got smacked down for it. Audrianna tried to remove herself from the madness and the madness followed her. I don't know about anyone else, but if someone's coming after me and grabbing me from behind... my instinct is to protect and preserve. Just sayin'...
I can't believe you are sticking up for Joe Francis, a man that got his fame getting young females drunk and filming them!!!! Why would you stick up for him, he was totally wrong!!! Karent was right to go tell her friend what he was saying!! A man should NEVER tell who he slept with, especially at a party!!! (Although, I don't believe him.) But at least you did tell Adriana to stop repeating what Joe Francis said, so good for you on that one!!! I don't know why you are bitter towards Karent, she is very sweet!!!
Marysol, If you were secure in who you are and the choices you make, Karent would not be able to "shake" you. You, and , all the women on this show, allow Karent to impact your behavior just by her presence. You think she should act a certain way and when she doesn't you become totally classless in your comments.....you brcome what you are accusing her of being. Wtf...who do any of you think you are that you can decide how she should act or be. .?
Marysol, if someone was - whether asked or volunteering the information - telling others at a party that they had slept with you, would you not want to know? Was Karent so wrong in telling Joanna what that piece of filth, Joe Francis, was saying?
I do however agree that she was out of place in accosting you about your fur. I would have walked away without a word.
Marisol I had a jacket just like the one you wore, the feathers are from a Maraboo and they don't kill the bird to get the feathers they are new growth feathers usually taken from the under side. Who cares what that cackling Hyenna has to say anyway.
Marysol..I have always liked you, I believe you have a good heart and it's obvious how much you love and care for your Mom. I respect the relationship between you and your Mom immensely! It's important for me to say this....so you know that my heart is in the right place!
I think Karent handled the "Fur"....completely wrong, and this is coming from someone who takes a very strong stance against the social acceptance of wearing fur. It should of been talked about in private, between you and Joanna. IMO, It's imperative in such a situation that this be handled delicately..in order to bring light to-and-for the sake of the animals! I can say, it is my Hope that you will come to see that the continuing cruel slaughtering of these beautiful animals for fur... is, in fact, cruel and SO...unnecessary! I think the reality of the barbaric suffering endured ....would SHOCK you, so please keep an open mind......
I can't quite wrap my head around Karent's apparent junior-high-ish behavior. I think maybe she's coming from an over-excited place, due to the newness of the camera's. I hope that's all it is, I guess time will tell! IMO...I also thought the way she handled that ridiculous "kiss and tell"guy was just SO....immature! I've read comments by some saying "she was trying to help Joanna," but I didn't see it that way! Hopefully, she is not just a trouble maker. Teenage shenanigans...is best left to, just that ...teenagers!
Lots of good wishes go out to Mama Elsa and to you!
As a new viewer/fan of RHOM, I've decided that you and your adorable Mom are the only 'real' people in the cast, or at least the only ones I can relate to or feel that I could be friends with in my own life, if our paths were to cross.
As far as Karent goes, she truly is a troublemaker and the one I would most avoid in real life, although I feel some of the housewives have been overly-confrontational with her and enjoyed, a bit too much, gossiping about her ridiculous social blunders.
As for Lea and her little barbs, I feel that she is similar to Karent, only a tad more refined; a passive-aggressive personality type! lol
Best wishes to you in adjusting to single life. Since I did not see Season 1, I don't know exactly what happened in your life. I only know that I adore you and Mama Elsa!
Again, the very best to you...
Marysol I just Love you and Mama Elsa you too are wonderful good people, Karent had no business approaching you she's nothing but a trouble maker. She's the one who asked Joe F if he had slept with Joanna and Marta and that wasn't enough she had to bring Joanna and Romain to start more trouble. She's not good for this show. She needs to learn her place and not go around acting as if she's been on the show all along she treats you guys as if you were the new ones. She needs to be put in her place. After she get the trouble going then she steps back with her fake smile and acts like it wasn't her who started all the troulble. She shouldn't be on a show like this maybe she should be attenting a dental convention or something like that. /She trying so hard to impress, but who? I don't understand.
You're such a lady, Marysol. I hope your mother is proud of you as a wonderful caring daughter, successful business woman and a excellent writer. What a talented, lovely woman you are.
I know you are tired of probably hearing this, but---I'd love to see you in love and a wonderful marriage to follow. Any man would be a lucky fella to have you and your lovely mother in his life.
I loved your bed jacket and lingerie ...especially since it was a passed down thru three generations..
I think Karent wants to have lady friends and doesn't quite know how to go about it. She is so thankful to have a budding friendship with Joanne that she went overboard; (at your expense) and went all batty about the "pelted jacket". She seems unfiltered and if you were to call her over to your house or out to lunch, I think you can explain this all to her. I really don't feel Karent meant you harm.
QUESTION: Watched last night and I was just wondering, is Elaine Lancaster also Lea Blacks son?
Somethimes I like you and other times I think you are awful! You just seem to take the easy road whether it is the right road or not. I wish you would be yourself and quit joining the pack of girls that act like they are in high school. Your mother is so wonderful that maybe you could learn from her.
Mean old Lady, not mean girl. Stay out of the bashing. Love you and mama E but you are getting on my nerves with bullying the dentist. What had she done to you, name one thing, just one!
I agree w/ mama Elsa, she'd steal all of you girls' thunder if she makes an appearance.
LOVE her!!! Andy are you listening?
Team Marysol/Momma Elsa, Alexia and Ana....and throw in some spicy Audrianna!!! The other 3 - I just fast forward!!! I wish u and Momma Elsa had a 1/2 hour show!!! GOLD!!!
I kind of felt sorry for you when you were approached by Karent at the beginning of the party. You could see the look of confusion/disbelief on your face. I did enjoy the scene with your mama. She is a independent feisty woman and you are really a good daughter to her. Are you an only child? It would be fun to meet some more members of your family.
Agreed. Love Mum Elsa and deplore the drink question. Come on Marisol, get wiv it. Lighten up. Grow a spine, girl!
I tune in just to hear your witty analogies and conversation with your equally witty mother. The whole "bird swooping in with a message in it's claws," was beyond hilarious. Karent's insecurity shows not only in her relationship with her boyfriend but with her girlfriends as well. She is starved for attention from paparazzi, her boyfriend and other women. She wants to be liked so much by others that she thought she could create an instant best friend with Joanna by "having her back," and exposing Joe Francis and his conversation. Not well thought out and I think she is so desperate to be liked she really didn't think what she was doing thoroughly or the consequences. She is a 40 something year old woman that is still emotionally immature and doesn't know how to socialize and act. I feel bad for her when she flashes her pearly whites using it as a mask for what is hiding behind her sea of insecurities.
I can't believe that Karent came running to Marysol to scold her for wearing fur. It would be one thing if this was a PETA event. If Joanna was upset about it i'm sure she would have said something to her and maybe educated Marysol about what happens to animals. I personally don't like fur either but it was not Karents place to say anything. I also could not believe that Karent asked Joe if he had slept with Joanna and Marta. He said he had dated them and she butted in and asked if he slept with both of them. She started the whole thing. Joanna you might want to rethink your friendship with Karent. It seems that everywhere she goes a fight breaks out.
I would prefer my friend come and tell me some creap is telling lies about me at a party to people I associate with, unlike you who would rather talk behind Lea's back instead of addressing her face to face. Honestly have you, Adrianna, Ana and Alexia lost reality on what being a true friend really is?
You handled the Karent situation very well on tonight's episode. How funny when you call Karent Joanna's carrier pigeon and say.... So I unrolled the message from her leg and it said, -You’re in trouble for wearing fur! You have me still laughing. Keep your humor it is great. I think what Lea calls humor needs work because it looks like mean comments followed by her own laughter. - give the girl with some lessons in comedy would you? She has the comedy attire working for her so that is a start :)
agreed the pigeon line was one of the best of the year(can see the little strap around Karents leg)
love love love you and your mom please never change ..... Also your mom is the best we need more from mama Elza karent needs a hobby and a mouse in her mouth please she is so unhappy
