Alexia Echevarria

Alexia explains why this anniversary was so special to her.

on Oct 22, 20130

Hi guys! Sorry I have been missing in action! I've been back to back with personal life duties and work commitments. Last week was especially tough time management wise; I had between flying to NYC for the reunion filming, emceeing a breast cancer awareness event, and meeting deadlines for the magazine, plus my mommy duties, which sometimes by far exceed my professional ones.

As far as the wedding goes, it was beautiful and Adriana looked breathtaking. I couldn't wait to see Frederic’s face once he saw Adriana walking down the aisle. And by the way Herman looked handsome in his white tux, too bad I couldn't hang out with him all night! I was busy for quite some time with bridesmaid duties!

Alexia, you are a beautiful woman, but three words of advice:  too.much.makeup!   Not needed.

Alexia, you were the voice of reason in the latest episode.  Lisa refused to listen to you, because it would have deprived her of camera time.  I am beginning to think you are the only smart one left on the show.  You proudly show your family and friends without all the snarky little negative remarks behind their backs (Lea in Texas).  Honestly, Texas is soooo much better off with that cackling witch living in Miami.

Seriously, this wedding was not a wedding, it was a vow renewal, why else was Adriana wearing a quinceañera dress??

What was so bad about Ana?  She spoke her mind? Stood up to Lea?  Come on folks, she made for good drama!! These people are all haters and angry!! Why else would they be on reality TV??  If it was all niceness and friendship no one would watch.  Keep it real.

You were terrible again this episode. Your backhanded compliments (insults) about Lea are horrible.

Alexia it is so obvious that you want everyone to turn on Lea!!!! You get sooooo happy if one person is willing to say anything negative about her!! Especially if its Lisa!! You would love for Joanna to turn on her too!!  Its so funny to watch!! What has Lea ever done to you that you want everyone against her?! I'm curious did I miss something?

You really need to remove yourself from this show and spend time devoted to your sons. You all need a lot of repair and you really need to be more openminded.

Alexia how many times are we going to hear the story about your ex husband being an ex con?! We got it the first time you spoke about it...

You are beyond beautiful as a person, a mother for sure, a wife and a friend.   Frankie is a gem and Peter is beyond handsome, he should be a movie star.  It was nice to see Herman interact on camera. I can see why you make a strong family.  His sons seem to be loving and appreciative of you as well.   Peter as a brother has found his calling, stop looking toward his future.  To see him with Frankie is amazing.  Lea's son is as rude and phony as she is, that was evident in the way he acted toward Lisa and even his Grandmother.  Kids can be excused for a lot of their behavior but to be rude to family and older folks/friends needs to be stopped.  I am sure Roy does not approve, he can do no wrong with Lea, she needs all the help she can get.  I cannot believe how rude she was toward her family. 

Her "real full blood sister"is dead; sad her other sisters had to hear that.   Her family was so nice, no wonder she doesn't want to be around them.  she only wants to surround herself with people who kiss her arse until of course she tires of them, like Elaine the drag queen and Adriana.   Marysol is lucky to have you.  I watch the show for you, her and Romain, Lisa and Lenny are ok, social climbers with an agenda for sure, much like Kyle and Mauricio.. oh well.

just wanted you to know Lea's hate brigade is not the only bunch in your corner.

I don't care what anyone says about your supposed two sidedness. I feel that you are a wonderful mother and you know how to stand you ground. You have a respectable distance between you and Leah because you're not sure about her and that's okay. I actually really like Leah, but it's every person's right to make their own decisions about people. I feel that you just have your guard up when it comes to her, and maybe you're also more loyal to your other friends which is okay. I absolutely appreciate you sharing your life story. Seeing the breakthrough you had with your son was very inspiring and I'm sure will hit home with a lot of women. You seem like a very honest woman with a lot of integrity. These phony tv relationships have no dominance over the values you have for your family and friends. Keep it classy girl.

What in the heck happened to ANA?  I liked her,  She seemed to be the only REAL GAL????I believe she was a lawyer??  Am I correct?

Seeing you with your family is touching but then I remember how two-faced you are with Lea and the other women.

Wow , I'm really surprised at all the negative comments. I think you very interesting . You seem like a wonderful Mom. You run a magazine .I actually think you are the perfect housewife to watch. You don't sit around complaining. I don't get the bashing?

Hello Alexia,

 

I am mesmerized by your strength and beauty.  Congratulations on the anniversary (Herman is SO handsome) and on the good things we see happening in your life.  Its hard to pick and I def. like lots of the Housewives but YOU are special I LOVE to see what you are up to, your life is really a dream (albeit with reality) and your are really a Cuban doll!  Freak N flaw-less!

Adrianna as much as I think your a lil loco and mean I do think you make for great reality television!! You do seem really sad and low this year! Another words your much happier when you and Lea are friends... I think she was more like family to you! For the life of me I can't figure out why you chose not to tell anyone (especially Lea) about being married?! I can't figure out if perhaps you married Fredrick for green card purposes? and thats the reason you didn't really feel married? Or if your just a big fat liar, fell on hard times financially and blamed Fredrick?! and therefore denied being married to him?!  Or  if you really and truly did not feel like a married woman because you didn't have a wedding or walk down the aisle?! I guess you and Fredrick are the only ones who will ever know the truth about that.. Anyhow even though you and Lea are at war you really shouldn't let Marysol and Alexia talk about her like that.. I still can't figure out for the life of me why the hell your mad at Lea to begin with?!! What did she ever do to you?! Lastly your a very beautiful woman! stop being so insecure!! Being tardy all the time isn't cute! Its a sign of insecurity.. Maybe in 2001 that was acceptable.. In 2013 woman are on time!  There are a million beautiful woman just waiting to take your place with their dream job!! I notice Joanna is always on time because she is professional and career driven! Your soo busy trying to get ready you miss out on half the fun!!

FYI Alexia, as far as "the wedding" goes there was nothing beautiful or breathtaking about Adriana keeping her guests waiting for hours without food. This was simply downright RUDE ! You are so fake and such a lair you couldn't be honest if your life depended on it. Please, this "wedding" was a sham, a catastrophe from beginning to the end and you know it! It's time for you, Adriana and Marysol to join your buddy, Ana.

Marysol should not have brought her personal problems to your party.  She could have waited for a later date.  I like seeing you interact with people you like.  You become unlikeable when you attack those you do not like.

I really try to like you, and at times I do. However, I cannot get past the fact how you dislike Lea. Your relationship with her is so fake I can see it in your forced smile when you're around her. You don't ever give her the benefit of the doubt even when she has texts proving that she tried contacting Elsa.  I thought you were better than that Alexia.

I was happy to see how good you were with Marisol. It was your anniversary, and your night, but you didn't let that interfere with being strong for her when she needed you. The love your boys have for each other is so sweet. I wish Frankie well in his recovery, and Peter the same in his growth.

A typical Cuban family, the dinner was all about eating, laughing, drinking, crying, and just inputting thoughts?  Really?  Are you kidding me? That is what most typical families do, not just Cubans!  As for Marysol's interruption, ridiculous and you fell for it!  How dare she intrude on your day with her drama!  She needs to get over herself, no one lives forever, we all are going to die eventually what makes it any different for her mother?  She is lucky to be in her 50's and still have her mother around, I lost my mother before I turned 30, that my dear is sad!  And she was a very caring, loving mother!  Marysol needs to grow up and face reality and stop living in LaLa Land, for her to say she would die if anything happened to her mother was so insensitive to her mother.

 @nycviewr I agree.  Ana was the reason I watched the show.  I watched this season hoping she would be on, but to no avail. I've been bored.

 @nycviewrThere was nothing entertaining about her. She was dull, her life was dull -her pathetic attempts to create drama were dull.

 @onaadams Ewwww I could not stand Ana! She is not real to the slightest. She's very judgmental and harsh. She has a fowl attitude and seems very bitter. It's rather unfortunate considering she seems to have a beautiful family. I don't know what the woman is so angry about but I'm SO GLAD she's not in this season.

 She showed her true colors at the reunion and now on Twitter. She's not even on the show and she is constantly saying and retweeting bad things about Lisa almost every day!

This must be the first season you have watched. She actually isn't so bad this season....so far. She was pretty nasty in the past seasons though. Viewers don't forget, so I totally get the bashing.

 @Nebfan22 it is obvious that you do not have friends, if Marysol can not count on Alexia when her mother is dying , who is she going to for support? That is called FRIENDSHIP not bringing personal problems, is more friend I am going thru hell i know you have being there and back, please i need and advice.  Nebfan22 have a little compasion, specially when your mother is ill.

 If Marisol were truly a friend, she would have put her biggirl panties on and wait till the next day.  IMO

 @webbwoman61 Alexia, I love your Cuban family.  It is about eating, having fun, and sharing one another's experiences.  Latin families are social and supportive.

piperbeau

 @webbwoman61  as much as I'm not a big Marysol fan I think your being a bit hard on her! People react differently to the death or near death of a close one! Marysol's mom is her world... Your being extremely insensitive...

 Never cared for Ana but I would prefer her over Adrianna every day of the week. Lets trade out Adrianna and Marisol bring back Ana :) (but no sneaking them back in for cameos)

@ESinAZ @onaadams he or she is the only one! Smh Please let her stay where she is. We have to stomach the con artist Angriana this season. I will stop watching for sure if she comes back. I can't stand Ana and Roberts underwear.

@ESinAZ @eastcoastgal38 Am I naive to suspect that the producers set up that scene for added drama?

 I agree that Marisol shouldn"t have brought her problems to Alexia's celebration,it reminded me of Adrienne from RHOBH last year coming to Lisa's party minutes after hearing that Paul had filed for divorce.

 @piperbeau As was my mother who I have had to live with out for the last 36 years of my life.  My point is she has had her mother with her a long time and no one lives forever, she needs to wake up and deal with the facts of life and death or she will always be the downer that she is.

 @webbwoman61 What are American families?  Cubans, Italians, French, Portuguese, Romanians, all of whom are Americans of Latin decent.  Yes, they do eat, which is a large part of their social experience, they're supportive, and they like to have fun.  They share all these things in common.  Other Americans may share some or all of these things, but to imply that Cuban families in Miami are not Americans, is to express your xenophobia.

 @webbwoman61  @River69 Some American families are Latin, but not all American families are Latin.  So, yes.  Some American families.

 @webbwoman61  I'm really sorry for that.... I get what your saying! It is definitely more tragic when anyone dies too young!!
