"...He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." - John 8:7
I was in shock to learn that my friend of seven years never even told me her real name, and I was even more shocked to learn that Lea had a secret marriage that she hid from her friends and business partner at that time -- as the People Magazine titled "Love and the Law" -- clearly states.
How ironic is it that she has been calling me a liar and crucifying me for not disclosing my marriage to her and yet she did the same!? I understand that she had her reasons at the time for not disclosing her marriage to anyone, and I would never criticize her for that. However, it baffles me that instead of being understanding of my reasons, she was the first to cast a stone at me...that is just the "pot calling the kettle black."
Despite all her blatant attacks against me and my family, I still made sure my son remained friends with her son -- I believe kids should never pay for their parents’ mistakes. She had been inappropriately texting my son directly and asking him to come over -- I found that very disrespectful! My son was only 13 at the time and he doesn't go anywhere without my consent. However, when she showed me some respect and called me asking my permission, I gave her my word my son would go to her son's birthday party.
Every time you open your mouth, you make it worse ! All the blogs and comments are quite clear - everyone believes you were totally in the wrong. All you had to do was admit the truth to Lea and apologize. Instead you have churned out at least 5 different stories about your marriage, which only makes you sound even more ridiculous. And now you are trying to compare the fact that way, way back when Lea got married, they did so quietly and privately ( not a paid for BRAVO wedding ) . .so you think that even begins to compare you marrying Fred 5 years ago and pretending and lying for 5 full years that you were NOT married . . . how stupid do you think the viewers are ? We are not . . .her real name is her married name, which is her legal name: Lea Black . . . wonder if that is why you left your passport at home on that trip, becasue you didn't want the ladies to see that I'm sure your passport has your married name on it. Let it go . . .you have trashed your name and reputation, and 99% of the viewers do not like you and do not want to see you back . . .
Oh, and Lea not telling you her real name? Really? That is her maiden name, she legally became a Black when she married Roy, she was married to Roy when you met her. Is she supposed to go around and announce her maiden name to everyone? When I married my husband I became a Norris. I now go by Norris, when I meet new people I tell them Norris, I don't think I've ever really told them my maiden name, so does that mean I'm lying to all of my friends about my "real" name??
Eloping and LYING about a marriage for 5 years are two very different things. It's a shame you don't see that. Lea wasn't pretending to be a single struggling mother after her wedding she just did it in private. You actually LIED about being married for 5 years and continued to tell people you were single and take money from them. It's apples and oranges. It's a shame you don't recognize the differences. You really should just quit while you are ahead because no one is believing any of the 4 or is it 5 different stories you have now come up with about your "marriage license", which became a legal marriage certificate when you went back a month later and made it official you dingbat.
Adrianna, stop talking... you're making it worse.... If you're so innocent spend some time explaining what Lea said (which you did not deny). Why do you (who is a married woman) want to get set up on dates by your wealthy, very-well connected friend? The only answer that makes sense is that you, the married woman was still intent on looking for something better. I think you should stop talking about this because you're only making it worse for yourself. Be happy you still have Frederic willing to stay with you. If I found out my spouse was trying to score a bigger and better deal they wouldn't be my spouse anymore. Count your blessings, Adriana, and stop quoting the bible when there's obviously a question of infidelity and adultery looming over you. Now that may not be the pot calling the kettle black, but it sure is ironic, don'tchathink???
There's nothing shocking about someone having a quiet, private wedding or eloping. What's shocking is hustling money out of people for five years, pretending to be a poor, struggling single mother, while in fact, you've been married all along. You are not in touch with reality.
I'm just not getting why Lea or anyone else cares when, why, or how long you have been married. So you don't feel it's a real marriage until it happens formally in a church . I get it but I don't get what the big deal is.
@rae123 the big deal is the fact that she has been portraying herself as a struggling single mother and getting help(money) from Lea, all the while she has been a MARRIED woman. If I were Lea I would be mad too. No one should accept money from someone under false pretenses. It makes it look like a scam and the person look like a scammer. Lea thought she was helping a struggling single mother stay afloat when in the end Adrianna was married and her HUSBAND should have been helping her, not Lea.
Lea helped you when you needed it, the fault is Fredrick's, he should have supported you finacially, not Lea. So if you took help from anyone except him, then you and he are both are at fault, no one else. Stop accusing Lea of anything, look in the mirror. Who can stand you and your lies! You should pay Lea back for anything she gave you and stop acting like she's at fault for giving you anything under your false pretences.
Okay first of all going off and getting married in secret is not the same as getting married and telling stories about how you did not want to get married cause you had issues. You have constantly been saying you were not sure about your partner and if getting married was the right thing to do blah blah blah. This went on for 4 years!! How is this the same thing. Your calling the kettle black theory is just ridiculous...do you hear yourself?
as Lea said, and I'm not a fan of hers, you lie to her and YOU'RE the one mad at her! You hit Joanna and YOU'RE the one mad at her! Who can stand you!
Bad enough you lie - but you also take under false pretenses - so be silent. You only make yourself appear worse.
To elope is not the same as what you did. Now you took information and distorted it to suit your original lie.
Then your behavior as a guest....you have no character and worse yet no class.
One thing is a License to get married another is to be married, omission on such a special event to your friend is lying, your friendship with Marysol who seems to be still in High School doesn't help either Ana who is a very sad & angry person, meditate on your actions it may help you not only to grow up but be a better person and keep on loosing friends Son
WOW I guess if you keep feeding it....it will never go away. I do not believe anything that comes out of her mouth, I didn't the first season nor this one. Also if I has been Joanna I would have pressed assault charges last season. I would not be her friend, I would not give her an opportunity to discuss it. I would walk away. I do believe that her and Marisol should be together, both are delusional, attention hungry and seems as if someone never discussed what truth, and fiction are. They are caught up in their own fairytale where they forever remain a damsel in distress and a victim. I dvr the show and when those 2 come on I fast forward.
I don't really know, but I would think that what you have done is called FRAUD. That's a legal term. Look it up. I will have to ask my son he is an attorney. Every time you took something from someone under false pretenses it is fraud. If Lea did have a fund raiser for your son for school and you accepted under false pretenses each person that gave money may also have a case against you. Not sure, but just saying.
I really think you are so toxic you destroy the entire show. What you fail to realize, or admit, is that Lea gave you a lot of money thinking you were a single mother supporting a child, and that was not the case, you lied! You made a complete ass of yourself by going to the birthday party and not talking to Lea, you should have stayed home. You're a train wreck, I hope Bravo cuts you after this season.
It just gets worse for you every time you open your mouth. Lea eloping and not putting out a public announcement is a completely different thing from getting married and then pretending not to be in order for your rich friend to introduce you to wealthy men, buy overpriced artwork so you could earn a commission and have an outrageous fund raiser to pay for your son's schooling. You clearly used Lea's compassion for a struggling single mother to your financial benefit, and that is what is despicable!
You need to settle down and just drop the "marriage license" fight. It is easy to see that Lea has a dark, dishonest, manipulative side. However, you make yourself look bad with all the constant drama. Learn to have a little grace and dignity. You seem to be a constant nervous wreck.
You must feel like such a toad when you watch Joanna . the vitriol you spew shows how jealous you are of her (newly found) poise and incredible natural beauty. The more she ignores you, the angrier you become, take a chill pill and some sodium Pentothal. Truth becomes a person, but jealousy and hatred are very ugly.
Wow. I just watched the scene of you interrogating your son, and it was very uncomfortable. Your poor kid. Shame on you!
@piperbeau She doesn't speak that language...onlly 5 others....but that's not one of them LOL!
@SkyAfonso1 -that's genius!! You just rewrote her tag line!!! "I might speak 5 languages, but the truth is not one of them."
Plethora? My guess is you were helping your son study for his upcoming SAT when you first discovered this word. Seeing as you like big words, here is one for you: insolent. This would describe you. Look it up if it's not a familiar term. Would you please just admit that you took advantage of Lea, "your sister," and should have fessed up to your marital status long ago??
You were shocked by Lea's secrets?? The rest of us were yawning. Nobody cares about a marriage that happened 20 plus years ago. Your attempt at shaming Lea, in an effort to take the focus off your deceptive behavior was an epic failure. I do applaud your effort to use a multisyllabic word like plethora, emphasis on the first syllable. Few housewives venture into these waters.
One more thing.....
I LOVE the fact that you have completely RUINED your chances of ever getting a "rich man" after you're dumped....because, Honey....you have just shown the entire world what a skank you really are...and no good man will want you after seeing your scathing behavior for the last few years.
AGREE, AGREE, AGREE, AGREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Adrianna, needs to grow up that article didn't fall in your lap, tell the truth you went looking out on the internet............. All the other ladies need to wake-up and don't get caught in her "WEB",...
sunshinelong Areyoukiddingme___ It was no secret! Lea was part of an interview in PEOPLE magazine! How secret is that...the only thing was the article was years ago. Lea didn't keep her marriage a secret to get money and cry "poor me." There was no con involved! The Adrinsana only is trying to divert her lies and deception.
@sunshinelong @Areyoukiddingme___ .......Agree! If that article is all she could find, then Adriana's got nothing on Lea. At this point, it looks like she's grasping at straws and making a fool of herself in the process.
"I had my bridal shower that same afternoon,....." quote from your blog....
Are you effing KIDDING?????? Now you have a bridal shower 5 years later with your hand out with more; "gimme, gimme, gimme." UNBELIEVABLE.
With your attitude of entitlement....I wouldn't be surprised if you were recieving "food stamps" from the government as well.
My God, you have some nerve.
You are pathetic. Do you really think that you "finding out" about Lea Black is going to make you "look" better? I mean after all, where did you find your info? That's right People Magazine. She really was trying to hide that piece of news. You are a liar. Just accept it and move on.
It doesnt seem like anyone is buying this Adrianna - better start working on your "bad editing" story.
Adrianna did you ever hear of the saying quit while your ahead?! The more you try to spin this marriage fiasco the dumber you look!! Drop it already!! You were married own it... stop calling it a marriage license!! Once you decided to say I do whether in a court house, court yard or a church!! You said I do, therefore it goes from being a marriage license to a marriage certificate!!! Get it?! Maybe you didn't feel spiritually married but you were definitely financially married!! You were the one who chose to play the woe is me I'm a single mom card! not only to your friends but to the world?!! LMAO!! How ridiculous! and you really can't compare your lies to Lea not announcing to the press that she was married!! Nice try though!
PLEASE BRAVO PLEASE - get this liar off the show and bring in someone who is actually interesting to watch! The viewers deserve better tv than Adriana!
