Alexia shares her thoughts on all the conflict at her Venue party.

Hi everyone! Hoping you all enjoyed your Labor Day weekend!

All I can say is wowww about my Venue cover party at Story Night Club! Did all of that go down that night? I was getting sick that night (the night before Lea's gala ) as you can hear in my voice, and on top of that being that it was a club it was very loud and difficult to speak and listen. On top of everything, it was my party and I was not getting involved. The good thing was that I didn't have to throw anyone out!

Seriously, it is not my fight. I had many other important things to be worried about that night, and fighting with girls was not one of them. I invited ALL of the girls, because I am friendly with all of them and always invite them to my things. I was a bit concerned because I knew they were all going and things could get ugly like they did.I was really happy to see Lea there. Like usual she was punctual and I wasn't. It's always a long night for me, so I try not to be the first one there, LOL! Herman always wants us to be there first since we are the hosts, but it never happens that way. Sorry, Lea! LOL!

I was happy to have that moment with Lea especially when she got on her knees. Lea has always supported Herman and I, and I am very grateful to her. She is that kind of friend, and I love and respect that about her. Even though it was the night before her gala and she was extremely busy, she made it a point to attend.

Looking now at all of this, I see that Lea was being diplomatic and trying to avoid conflict. She didn't want to be disrespectful towards me and didn't want any kind of trouble or drama, but it was inevitable. There is so much anger and resentment between the ladies that it had to come out. I was so nervous that I didn't even know what to do. I myself was shaking just like Lea. I wasn't aware of the problems between Frederic and Romain. What I was aware of was the fact that Lea and Ana dislike each other to put it mildly, and that's why I was in complete shock when I see Ana and Lea saying hello to each other and exchanging kisses! What? Seriously? They left me no choice but to call them hypocrites! I've been listening to both of them for all of this time, and now they are saying hello? I CAN'T! You don't have to go at each other, especially at my party, but simply ignoring each other would suffice. What is going on with these ladies? Do they forget what they say and do? Do they have selective memory? Whatever.


Needless to say, after the storm comes the calm and indeed everything calmed down. Some of the ladies stayed and some left, and I got to have my champagne and enjoy the rest of the evening with Herman and our guests that were there just like me to celebrate our cover with Juanes.So Adriana's story continues to get juicier… The only story I know and I'm believing is the one about her son Alex. It's the only one that makes sense to me. I'm a mother of two boys, and when I met Herman, they were 3 and 7 years old and they too gave me a very hard time. Except I didn't live with or marry Herman right away like she did. I waited 3 years until Peter and Frankie and I were ready. Adriana told me she decided to call things off as well as Frederic because of her son Alex. He didn't want her to marry Frederic at that time, because it was too soon and he was giving her a hard time. This started bringing problems and fights into their relationship, so they decided to call it off . They had gotten married civilly so it was too late, but they decided to keep it to themselves and just tell people they weren't doing it and never told Alex. I could honestly see a mom doing that, regretting it, and wanting to take it back even though it was too late.

What I am now confused about is the fact that it is a big deal NOW if they continued as a couple living together and everyone knew it? To me the piece of paper is just that, a piece of paper. To me the important thing is their love and commitment was there. They lived together the 3 of them under the same roof and as a family, married or not. I feel like Lisa right now – CONFUSED! In my eyes, they have always been married, piece of paper or not.Marysol asked me to come over to her apartment to chat. I've been spending quite some time with her since her mom's injury. She asked a tarot reader, Cari, to come over and give her a reading. Like Elsa, my mom would read my sister and I the tarot cards on Sunday afternoons. That was the day she was inspired. So I get that whole thing, especially at a time like this when she is so worried and concerned about her mom. She feels maybe Cari can tell her something about her mom's health. I personally am afraid and don't want to know. I like to live in my own little world. Denial? Maybe? Anyhow, I sit back and I listen and I continue to do what I do best: Pray, pray, and pray!



Thank you for watching. Thank you for all of your love, support, and prayers. I've received so many beautiful comments and tweets. I've met such amazing people in Publix, on the street, everywhere. Since the show started there are so many people that have thanked me for sharing my story, and honestly this is the best part of being on the show -- meeting exceptional people like you!



 

Until next week!



God Bless,


Besos (Kisses)

Lisa's Vegas Regret

Lisa reflects on the wild bachelorette party and updates us on her status with Joanna.

Hi everyone! As I'm sure you may know, this week was a bit rough for me. I think with everything I had going on in my personal life at this time, it all caught up to me in Vegas. To start, I was disappointed that Lenny could not attend Joanna and Romain's wedding with me. I of course realize he had surgeries already booked and he could not make any changes.

At the time of the trip, I was very excited to go and celebrate with Joanna at the bachelorette party in Vegas with the rest of the girls. I haven't been on a girls’ trip in ages and looked forward to having fun and letting loose. Unfortunately, I had way too much to drink. Watching the end of this episode had me cringing with embarrassment. I definitely did not realize how much I had to drink and wish I was more self-conscious of my behavior.

Watching the footage on the way back to the hotel, Joanna clearly started the argument with her constant jabs and low blows. Joanna then decided to insult me further by saying I married for money, said I shop 24/7, and called me a stripper. It of course set me off. I then used words I wish I didn't in the heat of the moment. I realize now after watching the whole season, Joanna has consistently thrown jabs my way. I'm not even sure why she asked me to be in her wedding or why I accepted. For the entire season, I had been nothing but nice to her, never spoke behind her back, and thought we had a friendship of some kind. She was very quick to kick me while I was down on that bus in Vegas and showed her true colors.

Although Joanna and I are not friends any longer, her wedding was absolutely beautiful. I wish both her and Romain and long and happy marriage. Unfortunately, I do not believe I should have been a part of it.

 



I regret going off on Alexia. She was in her own way trying to calm me down and fix the situation. I did not realize it at the time, but Alexia is a great person. This episode was definitely not my best moment on TV. I want to apologize to my husband, friends, family and fans for the way I acted during Vegas. I am human and we all make mistakes. I love to have fun, but not in that way.

At the rehearsal dinner, I revealed to Lea that Lenny and I had chosen a surrogate. I have decided to take a different approach to the way I look at using a surrogate. I realize I am very blessed to have this as an option. We are blessed to have this type of technology in today's world that helps create miracles. My wish is that every family can afford to do this and I hope one day IVF treatments become more affordable. Hopefully one day IVF and surrogacy could be available through care programs to the ones who truly want and need it. I will have more of an update for you after the reunion airs about what is going on with our baby situation.As of today, I have a more active role at my husband's office. We are about to launch our skin care line, Skinfinity, which will be available to buy in his office and online at www.skinfinitybeauty.com in a couple of weeks. We are also working on finally tearing down our Star Island home to build the home of our dreams that we designed together.

Over the weekend, we had our 7th annual Halloween Ball to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation where we raised over $50,000. This year’s party was our best yet and I would love to share it with you in the link below! I hope everyone had a safe Halloween!
