Lea's Lip Service

Adriana was shocked by Lea's decision to not move forward with their friendship.

I had a great time with the girls in Las Vegas! It was so nice to just have fun and forget about all the petty issues and just remember that sometimes girls just wanna have fun! Joanna and I were bonding for the first time, and I did enjoy the effort on both our parts. Every minute spent together was so nice! I sure was on my best behavior and sincerely wanted to focus on the present and hope for the best in the future. Interestingly, I felt more comfortable with Joanna than Lea... She continued to give me the cold shoulder and the mean digs never really stopped, but I had hope, continued being nice, and tried to enjoy everyone's company.



The road trip through the desert was intense. SO hot, it was 117 degrees on the shade! But it felt good to just chat for hours, and it felt like the old times.It was a relief that we got to San Diego in time for the rehearsal cocktail, and a little relaxation in the spa was in order. However, to my surprise, I saw Lea's wrath unleashed on me once more.

I had apologized to her twice already, and I had believed her when she said she wanted to move forward. But she didn't keep her word... Now I see she just gave me lip service and later stabbed me in the heart. She is incapable of forgiving and prefers to dwell on the past.

It is so hurtful to see that her need for punishment and hatred is even stronger than the love for her own son and my son as well. Unfortunately her lack of maturity is so unbecoming, but I can't change who she is. I forgive her, wish her the best, and hope she finds the kindness in her heart to stop hating, because hate only destroys the hater.
I was very happy for Joanna and Romain, especially happy that we made it in time and she didn't miss the beautiful wedding of her dreams! May their life be fulfilled with each other's company and may they grow old and happy together.

I like what their minister said: "...a marriage starts with the vows that you speak." I absolutely agree with that!


I would add that marriage is not a ritual or an end in itself, but a long, intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and choice of partner.

May both our weddings be lasting unions, because there is nothing more lovely in life than the union of two people whose love for one another has grown thought the years -- from the small acorn of passion into a great rooted tree of deep love.I thank each of you for your love and support this season! We are nothing without our fans! I wish you a great end of year and happy holidays to all!

Much love,

Adriana

Let's keep in touch!

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.
