As I reflect back on my favorite moments this season, I truly enjoyed the time I spent in the house in Bimini with Ana, Alexia, and Adriana. It was so wonderful to just be the silly, playful girls that we are. I remember Ana and I fighting over who would get to share the room with Alexia (inside joke). Ana won, of course, like the savvy attorney that she is! Ana was making us these amazing drinks all day long that had about four different liquors and several different fruit juices. It truly was the nectar of the Gods. The three of us had a pillow fight that started out fun but soon turned competitive. Then I jumped so high on the mattress I hit my head on the ceiling fan. AHHH good times! Adriana would come out and model 52 outfits for us before each outing which was very funny. Then we would all jam in the bathroom to do our makeup. Ana does amazing eye shadow application and I was the designated fake eye lash applicator. It had been almost a year since Alexia’s son’s accident, so spending a few days alone with her, just us girls, was very special.
Last, but not least, I met three new women that I probably would have never known had we not shared the experience of working together. In closing, I want to wish everyone a positive and joyous 2013. If you dream BIG and believe, great things will come to you!
Lots of love and best wishes for an amazing 2013!

Marysol, your dress was so beautiful!
From watching the show, I really felt like you and Lea had a connection. I think Lea is just blunt nearly to a fault and sometimes she says things that she probably wouldn't have said had she thought about it more. However, I think her heart is in the right place and I think she cares about you deeply.
...Ana on the other hand, I don't think is someone to have as a close friend.
Sure, Lea has her faults, but she gives great advice and she has a positive outlook on life. Ana seems to have this absolutely rancid, bitter and nearly apathetic outlook on life. As you and your mother observe, energy is always important.
I'm having major Mama Elsa withdrawls. She's so cute!!! Can't get enough of her.
Dandy please do something!!!
Just finished reading your blog and I must say that I commend you for keeping it positive and fresh. That takes a lot of class considering the grief Lea and James unleashed on you this season. I do agree with you that she and he/she should have kept their mouths shut and I just know that you must be so glad to have put it all behind you (No one really cares what they think anyway). ;)
Why doesn't Elsa have a blog?!?!?! She needs to get one, like, stat! Heck, she needs her own freakin' show! I absolutely ADORE her and the cute mother-daughter dynamic you two have brought to this show. I am glad that the two of you are working well together (putting me and my mother in the same room for too long, is a recipe for disaster), and I admire that quality about you both.
Here's to seeing you both next season. Hey Bravo exec's (if you are listening), if it ain't broke, don't fix it! These two need to stay!
Marysol you and your mother are so hysterical together. It's so nice to see such a strong mother daughter relationship. Loved watching the lost footage episode. I want me some Mama Elsa's coffee now. I loved your mother riding around in the truck. Too funny.
Best of luck to you in finding love in this new year.
Your mom was an absolute hoot in the "coffee" video. She was obviously having a ball. I thought it was really cute the way you were concerned about her, and warned the guy driving the truck. By the way, the red package was a smart move.
You are one of my favorite housewife. I loved that you spoke up for yourself at the reunion. Keep it up. Bravo needs to let your mother do a blog on here, I would love to read what Mama Elsa has to say.
realwife "YOU'RE," NOT "YOUR!" PLEASE!
"Your" is a possessive, as in "your car;" "your weight;" "your mother."
"You're is a contraction (shortened version) of "you are," as in "you're late;" "you're pretty," "you're interesting."
namaste86 realwife What are you the grammar police?! You will have to work full time then and basically be spell check on here! Relax..meditate..say it with me Namaste!!
Marysol, I like that you are genuinely friends with your friends, and not just for the cameras. I love the relationship you have with your mother and (again) the humor you both bring to the show. You looked beautiful at the reunion, btw-Love your style. As far as Lea is concerned.."Aunque el mono se viste de seda, mono se queda".
Marysol, you were by far the most positive person on the show. You had the idea to let the flowers go in the ocean, and that was the best scene of Real housewives ever. It finally showed how human these women can be. I hope you can remain positive within yourself, because you deserve it. I think you do not scream back at women because you don't want to waste your energy on stupid fighting, so I respect you. Good for you marysol, your mother must've raised you well.
Loved it when Elsa was reclining way back in her chair while she talked to Andy at the reunion. She looked comfortable and relaxed. She has a good aura.
Marysol, I still can't believe you are friends with those girls.You are WAY too good for them!
I don't see how you sleep at night getting Ana to do all your dirty work!! Pony-up girl you're old enough to do it yourself!
How come you never apologize to Karent when clearly she didn't say those things that were written in the article? You have a pattern of not apologizing to people you offended.
Elsa hs grown on me, and I find her quite hilarious now. You're a tad boring, and it seem very obvious that your "marriage" was fake. I hope it wasn't just for him. I hope you were in on it too. If not, I am very sorry....you need to be smarter than that.
Marysol I love you and your mother, even though you don't stand up against the mean girls who yell insults and have boyfriend vendettas against Karent, at least you aren't an obvious instigator. I think Elaine had a similar vendetta against you like Alexia's vendetta against Karent.
Elaine just couldn't let it go. She wanted to show you up and she attacked you. I don't think Lea egged her on, I think she wound Lea up. From her reaction on the reunion when you explained that you have girls who you have to pay, and that her comments have hurt your business, I think Lea realized that what she did cut deeper than she had known. She just wanted to be "right" and you weren't going to take it because there were other factors, not just your people at fault. I think your employees didn't do as much wrong as Lea and Elaine think.
I think Elaine believes you did it to hurt her, and of course, you didn't. I think it was a misunderstanding, but always... an apology goes so far in these cases. I think it would have ended it immediately. Just an oops and we'll make sure it doesn't happen next time is all it would have taken. That's PR 101. Then Elaine would have had nothing to attack you for. And btw.... why was she even allowed to make so much havoc on the show? I thought it was very unfair to you. She bullied you! Besos. Sigue feliz y abrazos a Elsa.
And really... I don't think Lea means to hurt people... she just can't help herself. 25 years ago I married a European, and I made sure the green card joke came from me before anyone else said it, because you know... everyone is thinking it. We are still married and I still tell people how lucky he is that I had to rush and marry him so he could get his green card! LOL! :-)
I'm Australian, not US citizen, and I could not believe that green card statement! It struck me as an incredibly rude comment, especially in such multi cultural company! Could not believe Lea would utter such a sentence in public...in Australia such a comment would have been taken as extremely bad taste, tbh as bigotry. But overall I like Lea very much...culturally though, that comment was a shock.
You and your mom are my favorites ! funniest lines ever......" i unrolled the message from the carrier pigeons leg" and Mama Elsa " Im not talkiing to you number 3! lol and saying Joanna had called her a prostitute? lol im going to miss you ! You do us cubans proud !
Marysol, as someone whose own mother has passed, it's nice to see enjoying your mother so much and taking care of her. I don't find her to be that enjoyable and wish she weren't oh RHOM, but I would no doubt feel differently if she were my own mother. I wish you would have more backbone and stand up and away from the mean girls, Alexia, Ana and Audriana. Everyone on the show, with the possible exception of you and Lisa seemed to show some meanness in them at some time, but the three As really buried the needle on the Mean Meter. You're a very pretty gal...play it up!
If mama Elsa got her own show, it would require subtitles. She's unintelligible most the time.
I really enjoyed you this season. I loved it when you told Lea off. That woman is one nasty pc. of work. You are not the one that made your business an issue....Lea did. She always loves to rag on other people to make herself look good. Just her choice of friends alone exposes what she really is.....dirty. good luck to you and your cutie mom in the future. It is obvious that you were brought up more a lady than Lea. I was beginning to think she was part jack-in-the-box the way she kept jumping to her feet every time some told an uncomfortable truth about her.
rosyposy I laughed so hard at the "I was beginning to think she was part jack-in-the-box." It was really funny how every time she got upset she had to stand in order to talk.
Cannot understand why Andy likes Elsa so much. She is a mess. Well at least he did bring up the question on why she called the president an Animal. He was very tactful in his approach on the After show and the Reunion show. She faked out on the answer but, I will give her a pass since she is an elder and was probally speaking politically. Was amazed me at how upset she was with the ladies when they bad mouthed her. Hummmm.I will never support any of her products. I will letYOU- her beloved fans help make her and her daughter rich since you love then so much.
hrdebbie Completely agree. Elsa is not spiritual; is no seer; can be unkind; is imperious and entitled; and does not deserve adulation merely for having reached a certain age.
Love elsa. Marysol you are totally insure why don't you move into the two most pathetic Ana
Marysol why didn't you jump in on Adriana's apology to Karent about the article that she never did about all of you???? Which you Ana, and Alexia all blew way out proportion. It was so obvious that you all used the article as an excuse to mean girl Karent who you all appear to be painfully jealous of, for some reason. You'r poor little nice girl routine is sooooo phony.
Love you and adore your mom!! I think you are a good person, just need to defend yourself beter
I don't think that is Marysol's personality. I thought the way she handled herself was beyond reproach, classy and SMART!
Great job, Marysol.
Now PLEASE don't drink the 'koolaid'!
Marysol, te adoro por tu belleza y tu naturaleza dulce. Eres una chica buena y carinosa, and I found myself loving you every moment you were onscreen. Don't ever think that people aren't seeing you for who you are: you are a wonderful person, a beautiful daughter, a strong businesswoman, and I can bet you that if you look around yourself every day (when certain cast members are absent) you'll see faces of love and joy soaking up your radiance. I know, I know, this is over the top, but you were one of the best things on the show. I hated the Miami first season, to be honest, but this second one was beautiful because there were some really good-hearted chicas living life to the fullest and bringing the beauty every day, and I wish you happiness, health, prosperity, and many many years more.
Marysol..........with all due respect, if you don't want your business to be criticized, don't make it part of the show. That was your choice not Lea's. You put it out there, you have to take the praise with the criticism. Or isn't it really a "reality show" as you all claim?
And for the record, I was familiar with Lea years ago after reading about her in many publications, including People and other main stream magazines and have seen her interviewed on TV as well for her philanthropic ventures.
On the other hand, I had never heard of you. That isn't necessarily bad but you are delusional if you think you're better known then Lea. I'm mindful that she is married to a very famous and prominent attorney but a lot of women who are married to famous men aren't in the public light as is Lea. I live in Oregon and knew who she was because of her national exposure but I had never heard of any of the other ladies on the show except for Joanna..
You mother is entertaining, most of the time.
Did you hear of her BEFORE she married Roy 20 years ago? From MY research, the answer is NO.
Even if Lea COULD discredit Marysol's business, WHY do that? Especially being a FRIEND and a 'supporter' of success.
I seriously doubt that Marysol will give Lea another opportunity to hurt her!
Marysol I just want to say you and your mom are so much fun to watch. I really like you both. I'm a big fan......
You had me fooled, I thought you were sweet and innocent. I guess I missed some of it during the actual shows - but not on the reunion show however. Its actually troubling that you seemingly get such joy out of seeing Karent and Joanne being attacked by the very vile Andriana and Ana. You actually admitted tha you thought Andriana was funny when she attacked these ladies - adding that you just can't help laughing at her. So you admitted that you take pleasure in other women's pain - who does that?. As a viewer it was hard to watch so its completely troubling to watch you enjoy it.
I really enjoyed you this season and last!
Best to you and your mother.
Points for keeping it classy :)
marysol-sorry about your marriage. it takes 2, maybe you were not a good wife cause he was not a good husband. anyway-you need to apologize to lea for letting the red carpet thing go to hell. that is all she is asking for. then, you ask her how you can make it up. that is how friends do it.
first is-say your sorry then second ask how you can make it up. people usually forget it-its ok.
better choose lea's friendship. things are not looking good for pathetic ana after the reunion show- you dont want to be the "kyle" of the housewives.
lizluvzandy I agree, I think had Marysol just apologized for the mix up (whatever that was) Lea would have shut up. Since she would not take responsibility , Lea was upset. Also, I agree Ana is not a good person for her to be friends with. She keeps stirring the pot. I also think the green dress suited her at the reunion GREEN WITH ENVY of Lea.
Marysol, you don't have to kiss Lea's ass about ANYTHING (unless you want to)!Believe me, she could turn BLUE before I would apologize. You DON't need Lea to be successful (thats the Lea koolaid they are selling!)
liz - go check the blogs...
BTW, congratulations on your 10-yr anniversary!
