For Lisa, I hope that she will have the family she has longed for. I have faith and believe that her dreams are right around the corner waiting for her…
For Ana, I hope that her life and that of her daughters is a happy one regardless of her divorce from Robert. She has raised two amazing daughters, who are much stronger than she thinks they are, and through them she will gain her emotional strength.
For Alexia, I pray that everyday Frankie gets closer to the place he was before the accident. I know this has been so hard for her and her family, and I hope that their love and unbreakable bond as a family becomes stronger through all of the obstacles that have touched their lives.
For Joanna, I hope that she and Romain continue loving each other with respect and with that, find peace in their relationship to make it official and become husband and wife.
For Karent, I hope that she finds a great man that loves her and only her for everything she has to offer. I also hope that she too has that family that she desires very, very soon!
I thought you were very boring this year, and also, you chose to hang with some mean girls. I always liked you before, and really like your mother. I just hope you and your mean girl friends don't end up turning off viewers against your Mama Elsa when she comes on the show. From the previews, it seems like she wants to attack, too, and if she does, she may lose a lot of her supporters, also. Your mother is one of the reasons that you were liked, being her daughter, because she's much more interesting than you. Glad you let the man go, Leah was right, he only wanted a green card, you may have wanted love and a wedding on tv, but he wanted someone to support him and get his green card.
didleesquat WOW! I read this comment and thought to myself, WOW, this is not nice! I have to disagree with you on Maryasol and your comments. She actually wasn't a mean girl, however, she was the one who did not like the confrontations. Perhaps you confused her with someone else? Her mother, Mama Elsa is not the reason people liked Maryasol. Maryasol was like prior to her mom's arrival on the show. Maryasol is seen as a sweet lady who doesn't speak up. I seriously doubt Lea was right about the Green Card issue. You never know what goes on in someone's home . She made a mistake. I believe the two are still very close friends. They still love each other, just not in a married relationship. I seriously doubt Mama Elsa would attack anyone. She does put people in their places and says it like it is. She is refreshing and truthful, something that some of the other castmates are lacking. Just my opinion.
Marysol, I felt so bad for you this season with Lea continually bad mouthing your business. You two disagreed on how it was handled and it should have stopped there, but she just couldn't let it go, could she? And the way that Elaine/James person came at you during that party was just horrible. Again, thanks to Lea. Hopefully you have moved on from this mess. I love the relationship you have with your mother. My mother and I have the same relationship and seeing you two always puts a smile on my face! Stay the way you are and just keep your distance from the "mean" ones - you know who they are! Best wishes for a wonderful 2013!!
Marysol, at one time Lea was your customer/client. You provided a service that was not satisfactory to her. Lea expressed that on camera. That's not bashing you, that's telling you how unpleased she was with your companies services. That is her right. Through all of it, you didn't say what she said didn't happen. Your companies creditability is built on the services you provide and how satisfied your clients are...Lea was not satisfied and you should've done something to rectify that. Also, you can usually tell the character of a person by the company they keep, since Ana and Alexia are your friends, that says alot about you. And PS...not everyone is going to like you.
Your business must be going down the tubes. It should be considering how you conduct yourself. And now having Ana do your dirty work. Shameful
Marysol, you are my favorite on the Bravo show. I think you are a beautiful, classy, poised young women. I also think your mother is a doll. A relationship like you have with your mom and close friends is what is most important. You are blessed. Happy, Healthy new year to you and your family.
Marysol, anyone with ANY common sense, can 'figure out' what happened with the gala. You don't have to defend anything and I'm glad that you didn't ENTERTAIN these fools by letting them get the best of you. Good for you!
Hope 2013 brings you and Mama Elsa much love and happiness and great health!
It is so obvious that there is a real friendship and love between you and Lea. I hope that you both put this behind each other and just agree to disagree.
I felt very bad for you on the reunion when you explained how the conflict with Lea and James was negatively affecting your business. I agree that she should have just not discussed your situation, but I think from what was shown that Ana actually perpetuated a lot of conflict. She said she was defending you, but she never shut up about it. It just seemed like in an effort to defend you, she made the Lea situation even worse.
I am sorry to say but your story line bores me and I fast forward when you are not with the other housewives. I did try to watch you in the beginning, but just could not take it anymore. Sorry. :(
You seem nice but you are getting swayed by the mean girl club of Ana, Alexia, and Audriana. Lea did say mean things about you and she owes you an apology but I think you two should forgive and forget and move forward. If you are protecting your reputation than distance yourself from the bullying group. Best of luck.
marisol may have not said anything mean herself but she sure did laugh a lot and condone the "mean girls" behavior and that is just as bad. someone who has no back bone but loves to gang up on others is disgusting marisol. you ruined your own reputation by being associated with mean spirited people and laughing the whole way home. you need to be ashamed of yourself and go find a back bone so you can stick up against bullying and not be some yes man to everyone. it amazes me that you can run a business and make any decision for yourself. you are the most pathetic.
I'm sure you are a sweet person, but what comes across is someone so vulnerable and sensitive, I'm looking for the sore point. Granted you and your mum brought some of the best moments in comic relief this season. You're a tag team but again, I was waiting for what Elsa had to say. A little more what Marisol thinks, more speaking for yourself, more direction and purpose, more of your humour and THEN, I'd say, we have a MVP. Otherwise, the bit part can't stand up against the likes of Lea. PS. WELL DONE telling Ana, effectively, to shut it!
I know M is trying to protect her reputation and her business by being tame on the show but she really needs to grow a pair. I appreciate that she acts ladylike but there is a way to defend oneself and still maintain elegance and maturity.
That's what she was trying to do! I don't know how many more ways this woman had to say it that she DISAGREED with Lea - who, btw - can NEVER be wrong! Marysol KNOWS who her real friends are - that's WHY she had no problem telling Ana to shut up - they are FRIENDS!
Why would a SMART businesswoman get into a pissing-match on national TV - especially with someone with so many influential contacts and who'd already bashed her business all over town?
I'm not sure there's a way to maintain elegance/maturity with ANYBODY in this group... just sayin...
I tend to lump Marysol in with the "mean girl" group of Adriana, Ana, and Alexia, but she seems to be the one that has some empathy towards others. Ana and Adriana were mean and nasty in the 1st reunion show, but Marysol showed some class. Hopefully her well wishes in this post are genuine and not just to make her look good.
Proud of you Marysol! Way to stand up to Lea! She talked bad about you and your business the entire season and it got OLD!!! Wish you the best!!! Glad your on the show!
Marysol seems to be the only one on the show that just might be a lady. The rest are awful dirty mouth you know whats.
Lea is not your friend she has done nothing but belittle you, and ridicule you ! and allow and encourage that he/she Elaine to bully you and has never stood up for you or admitted to be wrong ! You come across as a decent, classy honorable person, so don't worry about Lea, you don't need friends like her ! You and your mom are my favorites, true cuban ladies !
Woohoo, Marysol. You finally told Lea to shut her damn mouth. I could have hugged you. That woman is such a devious snake, and all are beginning to see that. She stayed after you and spread hurtful lies about you because she is a coward who could not take on anyone with a backbone. Did you fool her, or what!!! Congrats, girl. Get in her face every time she starts up.
Part of being a mature adult is to take responsibility for your actions and move on. You, not Lea, endangered your business by not being professional and apologizing for your teams behavior and moving on. And I do believe you have given Elaine some bad press on the show. If you had not done anything you would have stood up to her/him. But you got caught abnd did not want to confront the situation...ad stay away from Ana. She does nothing for you reputation.
NolaB: she has done nothing to JAMES. He is a full grown man who thinks he can bully women when he puts a dress on. He was just trying to grab camera time to get more bookings by attacking someone he thought would not fight back.
Really proud of you today Marysol!!! You did great!!! You finally defended your livelyhood. It was hurtful for me to watch Leah saying all those mean comments about you and your abilities as a professional.
You really wouldn't be on the show if it wasn't for your mother to be honest....but the delusion that you weren't mean this season is ridiculous! Own up to what you do or say, and quit having Ana do your dirty work.
Marysol why are you on the show you are the most boring one on it , grow a back bone and please dont come back
Marysol, since season 1 I really like you and Mama Elsa. I only wish the best for you because you deserve it. The people that are mean to you - they will have their time...
i think you have plenty of courage, but do not want to offend anyone. a business person learns not to burn bridges. i see nothing wrong with your actions, except i cant see why you need Lea. she has hurt your business and on TV yet. good luck to you and of course mama elza.
Marysol, I like you however I wish you would grow a back bone. Ana acts as if she does so much for you please!!!! Stand up for yourself and take responsibility for your actions. You seem to be ok with people fighting your battles and its not a good look. I've watched you hide behind corners and giggle at others fighting and when you're approached you run away. You are a successful classy woman and I don't like that you hang with the mean girls for protection. Have a mind of your own. You've witness Alexis, Adriana and Ana do really hurtful things and not once have you voiced your opinion. You're just happy it's not you and that's sad at your age to be that way. Your mother is a very strong woman. Take a page from her book. I would hang out with Lea any day of the week than with the triple A jealous crew. Each one of them are bitter and you know the old saying " birds of a feather......" Anyway I'm sorry you and Phillipe couldn't make it work but you never know you may end up back together. Also, it was a great surprise to see Elaine perform at your event. I thought that was very classy of you.
Marysol, you are just wonderful. You are gracious, you are a lady and I loved your determination this season. A little different from the season before. However, you are not goingt to let folks run over you. Love your Mom too.
Marysol, I really liked you in season 1 and I still do despite some not so gracious moments you had this season. I know that you are not a mean girl, but you let the hate and the jealousy of your friends-'wives make influence on you. However, I know that your feelings about divorce were very raw at that time, that you didn't care much about what was going on between new and old cast members and that your thoughts were somewhere else. Lea's attack on you was too much, especially under the given circumstances. I hope you are in much happier place right now. I wish you and your mother all the best.
Wait, so all those insults in your blog about elaine were fake? Or you hired somebody you hate? please tell me youre not that submissive? Anyways, thankgod you brought your mother on the show. Probably the only one with any sense.
@texasgyal that was out of line. you are not a nice person. what on earth does anyones looks have to do with the kind of person they are? shame on you.
while i dont always agree with the way you ladies behave marysol, i thought the last episode showed you all to have a good heart.
also i happen to love your mother.
just saw the preview for the reunion, jeez...wth?
You r a classy lady, Joanna in her foolish attempt to defend Karent said that Elaine said you didn't apolifize ! We all saw you do it and we saw Lisa lie and then when confronted by you and Ana admit it was about the money ! its obvious that Lisa and Elaine want to be relevant and be a "housewife" for a little while ! Joanna talks without thinking and without proof ! she goes out of her way to defend Karent which is so absurd because Karent doesn' lift a finger to defend her ! Oh and if Lea was sooo unhappy after the 1st event? why come bk for a second year? doesn't make sense !
Something you have in common with Ana and Karent is that you don't have DIGNITY. It's obvious these men don't love you.
Hi Marysol: How you lasted a whole season with these women is a surprise to me. Karent seems nice, albiet fake. Ana is a good person although she made poor choiced in Bimini. I would imagine Lisa is too insipid and fake for you to hang out with. Adriana is an odious person to say the least.The season finale was a snooze fest. If Bravo does anything at all with the Miami people they should give you and your mom a spin off. I would like to see more of your PR firm and what you do. Your mother is quite the character. Happy holidays.
Yes not only is she the star of the show but she is a lovely, kind elderly lady who deserves respect, with so much ugly and evil out there in the world why keep criticizing and putting down this poor lady who has hurt no one and is almost 80 yrs old! Bad plastic surgery is not a crime ! its what"s on the inside that matters !
I love, love loved this blog! You are a truly good person! I believe that in the end good people come out the winner .... even if they are "outtalked" ... even if they are "much smaller" in form ... even if their demeanor is quieter .... Good people always finish last ... But... the last person always finishes .... FIRST! Have a wonderful holiday. Many blessing to you.
Merry Christmas, Marysol! I hope you find happiness and love, a long lasting love. I hope that you and Lea truly renew your friendship!
Very well written blog Marysol. I hope you find happiness in your life too along with that special someone :)
Marysol , you are a sweet classy lady and you were bullied alot by that huge he/she Elaine who is dying to be another "housewife"! Don't stoop to he/she level and Lea is not a friend there's a difference between acquaintances and true friends , and she is not a true friend ! Your mom is also a sweet nice funny lady ! You guys do us cubans proud chica !
Marysol I really like you. I am too smart to believe a word of all the bad mouthing and attempts to hurt your business reputation that Leah throws at you. It doesnt make sense and makes you look so calm and sweet. How annoying she is like a little dog trying to bite and bark at you. She doesnt shutup. She is clearly trying to gain a sense of empowerment by hoping to prove how important she is if she can hurt your career with her words. I feel she needs to empower herself by building her own career. She is a nasty mooch. Nothing else. You are a genius. Keep being the lady you are. I also love the way you respect your mother. You are a good woman.
samsung I think that Lea likes Marysol! I just think that Lea wanted Marysol to take responsible for what happened at the Gala. Had she done that I believe Lea would have let it go. But, Marysol would not own up to the fact that her employees dropped the ball.
