Alexia Echevarria

Alexia shares her thoughts on the Marysol/Lea situation and reveals her amazing birthday present.

on Oct 8, 20130

I had a great start to my birthday, even though I had to go into the office to work because we were going to print. How cute were my girls holding a customized Venue Magazine Cover with all of us on it! I knew the day would only get better, and it did -- Herman surprised me with a new convertible Maserati that Frankie and I had customized. It's red inside, his favorite color.

Marysol comes by the office to visit and wish me a happy birthday, and of course, how could we not talk about Adriana's "Evite" to her wedding. Seriously, nothing surprises me from Adriana. Adriana was just being Adriana, and she loves all of that. I think she's in love with the idea of all her guests being in white, which is beautiful, and she's loving the theme of The Great Gatsby, which is glamorous, and just couldn't  make up her mind so she decided to do both, not taking into consideration how difficult and complicated it would be for her guests. I personally don't like themed parties, especially for a wedding, but it is her day and she can celebrate it however she wants. At the end of the day, people always criticize anyhow. So now they just have one more thing to talk about, LOL!

I only believe in having an IV in me when it's medically necessary, so that's why you don't see me with the girls at the Institute.

Wow Alexia I can't believe you haven't commented on Adrianna's fiasco of a wedding / vow renewal??! Not a peep? perhaps because your afraid to write how disgustingly rude you thought Adrianna was for making all her guests wait a total of three plus hours?!

I am beginning to think you are the only cast member with a brain and able to think for yourself.  Congrats!!  You do not have to join sides in someone else's fights......especially when neither side is completely in the right.  I just like Marysol better because she does not exhibit the passive agressive character that Lea does.  Plus, Lea's irritating cackle is hard to listen to.  Stick to your guns....do not let haters decide who you hang with.

I can help you sum that up!  Marysol needed to feel like she is relevant, however, she isn't.

Adriania and Marysol are rude, boring and hopefully on their way out.  Keep hanging with them

and you will soon find yourself with them.

 

You  try  to play the middle, but you are doing so great!!

Yet another episode of you pretending not to be taking sides in the Lea Marysol feud... Once again your actions don't match up with your words.. You clearly are team Marysol.... OWN IT.

your objective act dissolved already! We are onto to you.  You say one thing and do the opposite. you know, declare how you raise your son to be responsible and then lie to the police; tell lea you are on no one's side and then pull your chin into your stringy neck and take Adriana's side. you are without value to this show-- you, marysol and the ana-- all exercises in victimhood and wannabes

Alexia, for the most part, I enjoy watching you but this season you've become a scary-cat.  WHY?  Re: Marysol and Lea...have several seats.  Mind your business!  If someone has an issue with Lea..stay out of it!  I don't understand why you women have such a hard time minding your own business.  Also, you are a grown woman...why would you tip top around these women regarding Lea.  You should not have to lie, tip top or sneak around your friends.  That is so HIGH SCHOOL!  Because someone isn't speaking with another person..everyone must jump on the band wagon.  HELLO...EVERYONE IS GROWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Please start ACTING LIKE IT!

You are the stabilizing person in the group.  I enjoy watching you.  Happy to see your son improving!  You are a great mother to both of your boys.

You have had your problems certainly but you need to be smarter about your friends. You are being played. Lea May have done all the things she said she did. Marysol in the moments of worrying if Her mother would make it or not, may have not seen messages or housekeeper may have misplaced cards,etc. Marysol is just looking for Something to fight with Lea about because she Already harbors a grudge and is upset about her Mother's condition. Stay out of it,commiserate With both that they are upset. You can be compassionate without taking sides to be relevant.

Alexia you and your little team Adriana are a bunch of fools. You are just a bunch of thugs in cocktail dresses ( housewife favorite). What were the male and female dancers supposed to be? Whenever I am having a really bad  day all I have to do is watch HW of Miami and I instantly feel better. I would hate to be any of you, except Joanna.

Alexia - it's so obvious you want to find something to pin on Lea but can't find anything valid. You need to grow a backbone and quit being such a phony. And if you had any sense, you'd extricate yourself from that despicable tribe of miserable losers - Adriana, Marysol, Anne (or whoever that fired season 2 fringe dweller is). They are positively unwatchable and this whole situation wreaks of the RHONYC clan that was disbanded for the same cliquey behavior (Bensimon, Zarin and the Countess). Trust me, the viewers hate it.

Alexia, The birthday party that your husband had was beautiful. You took the right actions and CELEBRATED you party with family and friends. If people don't like each other, that is on them! I just love to see and read all the Lea supporters, she really has the "magic" to manipulate people, Just like she manipulates her husband. I can't wait for the VEGAS episode and see more of Lea's sincere and victim demeanor. Like i have always said, KARMA will always teach you a lesson and will come and get you, no matter how much money, support you have! Respect and Love!

Does every woman on this show blatantly lie?  You say in your blog you had no idea this was going on at your party and Marysol says in her blog that she asked you if it would be ok to confront Lea at your party.  Which one of you is the liar? Since you have both been caught in so many lies I would think that you would at least try to get your stories straight before writing blogs saying the opposite things.

You are a horrible hostess.  What type of hostess invites people to their party and then relishes watching one of them attack the other, encouraging it.  Your behavior is in a deathspiral of trashiness.

Alexia, watching you makes me cringe...you really do not like Lea but , are always there in her face questioning her "saying you wanted to hear her side", then as soon as she turns around you are laughing at her and being very disrespectful.  I really like Lea and do feel she is one the most interesting, giving people on the show business wise.  Stop pretending to be a friend to her and stay out of her face...sista

Lea should drop you like a hot potato.  It is obvious that you have taken sides with your Cuban posse.  You believed everything Marysol had to say, so why the affirmation?  Lea does not need you.  She is the show, and if she leaves you can bet your bottom dollar this show will be cancelled for lack of viewers.  You are extremely disingenuous.  Lastly, please speak English and learn how to conjugate verbs.

I hope, after watching the season unfold on television, that you see that you shouldn't be in the middle.  Marysol and Ana have pulled you into this fight which is what 'haters' do... They work very hard to have as many people on their side as possible. Please stop listening to Ana, she is the one who started the Lea Hate Club and you all are falling in line.  In my long life I've learned that the followers usually lose all of their true in the end.

 

Be careful, you may get stuck only having Audriana and Ana as friends. Yuck! I have hope that Marysol and you will stop being Lea 'haters'.

"At the end of the day, people always criticize anyhow."

 

No, not all people, just the negative Haters you surround yourself with. Marysol, Adriana, and Ana are nasty, mean women. No wonder you think all people do is complain about other people.

Alexia, from what I have seen, you seem to be a great mother. Having said that, you are not a good friend....you are like the wind! Why would an intelligent woman like you even consider someone like Adriana or Anna a friend and stand up for them! They are both completely crazy!

I LOVE Alexia & think she brings a lot to the show. It's brave of her to put the struggles she faces with her kids on a platform for the world to judge.  I think she shows incredible strength and grace.  I'm also really liking Marysol this season. Forget the haters & negativity, they'll move on to someone else soon enough!

beautiful Alexia!  your face was priceless as lea droned on and on and ON with shilling her....what was it again? hair plugs or something? anyway, i paid her no mind, as her voice is equal to taking a fork to a cheese grater.  love you, your Herman, and your sons!

Bravo,

PLEASE get rid of Alexia---can't stand how fake she is. Also get rid of the wicked which Adriana and Marysol.  Nasty is just not watchable.

Your intentions come off as manipulative and self serving.  As for Marysol, with her starting something with Lea was ill mannered and ill timed, she wants to come off as a victim but really it seems like she can be the cause of most of the drama.  Seriously, you think Marysol would have accepted anything from Lea while Elisa was in the hospital, it seems like no matter what Lea does will make Marysol mad so why even do it.  Even though you weren't a part of it,  and didn't know about it, what Marysol and Anna did was so childish, why would you be friends with the likes of them and Adrianna who is so egotistical and self absorbed that she see only herself?  Also, even though family isn't perfect, your son Peter needs a good lesson in life where he is cut off, maybe then he can grow up and appreciate you and Herman.  Regardless if you didn't discuss who is dad truly was, that was a choice you made in order to protect your kids, which Peter should recongize not blame and lash out to which jail seems like a real possibliity for his future, then he can see how gangster and "cool" it truly is.

Alexia, I wish you were more like Joanna.  Unfortunately, you let your insecurities dictate your friendships.  You have so much potential to be a leader, but always fall short because of your need to want to fit in with certain girls.   Please stop using Marysol as your security blanket.  You don't need her approval for friendships and for attending galas.  It's okay to make your own decision and not let others dictate your life.  I think you would really benefit seeing a professional to develop your inner confidence.

Interesting that every time Alexia has a party someone is treated this way. Last year it was Karent who was attacked when they had their gang at Alexia's party. This year it has happened to Lea twice.

Wow. You think the viewers are stupid. You state that you knew Marysol would say something Lea. Then tell us you had no idea it was going down. You called Lea a hypocrite but don't call Ana one for the same behavior. You don't like Lea any more than other mean girls. Just say so and quit pretending to be something else.

 

I think you are only on the show this session to try and get sympathy after your son got into trouble and your statements. Personally I think you made yourself look worse. All I see a woman trying to make excuses for her son and pretend she is something she isn't.

 

The mean girls bore me.

 if she is stabilizing, i'd hate to in whatever boat you are... she's a royal flipper-- of friends, allegiances, truth and justice. she is dishonest and has the nerve to be righteous. the worst combo. as if anyone really listens to or cares what she thinks.

 Thanks for explaining this so well.  I wonder why Lea is on that show and allows herself to be berated by those wanabes.  Ana, the lawyer, who has been separated from her husband for years.  He is living with a lady. Yet,  she washes and cooks for him.  She does not have any backbone with him, but pick on Lea every chance she gets.  I love Lea, but, she should quit that show.  Adrianna turned out to be the biggest  bitch of them all.  She'd better be careful, pay back is a bitch.   I like Lisa for sticking up for Lea.  She is strong and will give as much as those bozos give.  Marisol should be ashamed she is using her Mom's illness to get back at Lea.  She, who marry and divorced in a year.

 

I wish her Mom a speedy recovery.

 Then you must have loved how Alexia lied to the police not mentioning that

her son Peter hit the mans cab? Oh and you also must love how Alexia Manipulated

the whole situation by telling the cop she is the owner of Venue and he just drives

a cab?  Its sad to say this but Alexia might be living her own KARMA......and I don't

mean with her son's but with viewers seeing her TRUE colors and calling her out on

it.

@carom Exactly, carom! Lea showed Alexia the text that she sent to Marysol--she even read it out loud to her and yet Alexia looked as if she didn't believe her. Isn't there a date and time that the text was sent?! If it was soon after hearing about Elsa, then Marysol is not being honest.

 It is more her sons struggle than hers. She just uses it to have a story line, like Mayasol

 @MissJ1213 Remind us what kind of platform she brings to the show ?

Oh by showing us a room full of shoes and talking crap behind Lea's back? 

I assumed Andy brought Alexia back for what could have been a decent storyline

about her son Frankie's progress, but being the narcissist that she is made even her

son's story about herself.......UGH!!

@LoveBravoBB You're right! I wish the producers would understand how taxing and unhealthy it is to keep featuring these petty, unpleasant women. You can have drama, but the smallness of these women (Marysol, that vile lawyer chic, and sometimes Alexis) is truly toxic.

 @CherylS27 The reason she is friends with Marisol, Anna and Adriana is because she knows if she is not they will turn on her viciously like they did to Lea, Joanna and Lisa.  She more or less indicated that on one of the show.  She is afraid of them.

@Sweeteena1018 I don't understand your point, but respect your comments. I was discussing Lea and my opinion on her. If by- you expressing your opinion on Alexia helps validate your support and love for Lea, then more power to you. I am nobody to judge, and I am sure Lea is a great person, but I just don't see it, and that is my personal opinion. Wishing you a great weekend TGIF :)

she (Ana) just can't keep her mouth shut -- ever.  Like nails on a chalkboard, she irritates me now just by seeing her because as soon as I see her, I know her big mouth is gonna start flappin.
