Lea Black

Despite the "Adriana saga" and Alexia's infomercial chatter, Lea thought both of her events were over-the-top successes.

on Oct 28, 20130

Hope you had fun with all the drama. LOL! I love the dress designer Rene Ruiz, his spirit, his team Brad and Daniel, and I love his store. I hope you enjoyed the handbags, even if there were some major "distractions".

If you watched Watch What Happens Live, you saw Amy Sedaris digging through one of the fun handbags from my line. (Watch the video here!) Fun!

I love you Lisa, but a premiere of my handbag line at a couture boutique really isn't the place to re-hash the "Adriana saga". I'm starting to feel like the Adriana issue is being shoved down my throat every single time I am around some of the girls. I can't even go to a business engagement without it becoming the topic of conversation. I'm starting to feel like I'm being "water-boarded" to overlook who I have realized she is and who she is not -- just so everyone can have a cocktail together!

My Lea Black Beauty facial presentation at the Intercontinental Hotel was amazing. Once again Sudden Youth did its magic. This facial has never failed me. I've done it in front of very large crowds in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, the US, and on television worldwide. Every single person (man and woman) I have applied the facial to on half of their face has seen a difference in just minutes. I demonstrate it on half the face just to prove how well it works.

And thanks again Alexia, I've been to many of your magazine parties that I didn't call "infomercials." I am still wondering when she will stop getting her digs in. And I'm still looking back to see when I ever put a dig in about her or her business. Can't find one. Getting more points with the hate club anyone?

I love the fact that you finally accepted your 'phoniness', Lea!  And, psst, the camera doesn't lie; we knew you to be a fake all along.   I nominate you The Queen of Fake!!  There, you want to be the queen, you have the title now!

 

A tip for a new venture.....how about wigs?

Lea, you have the funniest one liners. I love her these ladies are so annoyed and jealous of you that they cannot even see straight and all you do is crack your jokes and come up winning on top.  Also, I love how you have everyone of these ladies pegged.  You are spot on about Alexia's digs on you marketing your products and Adriana's less than stellar performance of her apology.  Love Lea Black!

"regret getting caught".....yep, that about sums it up.  

I'm a bit ticked at Lisa....still like her....but something smells funny.

I'm disappointed with Alexia.....bummer.

Joanna and you are the only ones left that I like.  

I think the reason I continue to watch is I enjoy watching your reactions....what works and what doesn't  

Joanna has learned what doesn't.....bless her heart.

You gave me the biggest laugh of the night. If they want a fight, at least promote my bags while they are fighting, pick up a bag and slap a bit-- with it. Too funny Lea, I was thinking the same thing.

Watching the episode that Lisa bring up Adriana situation in your handbag event, in you comments you said "its calling being professional" CLEARLY LISA HAS NO IDEA ABOUT BEING PROFESSIONAL, no wonder Joanna tell her to go to work, or get a life....Lea this group of women, besides Joanna, is not for you... either you get your own show or Bravo has to recast the whole RHOM around you!

After watching last night's show, if Bravo doesn't give Lea her own spinoff they would be foolish.  I know I'm ahead with my comment, but I saw a scene a bit similar to the dance move Lea did with the dwarf in Hyde Park, London a few years ago.  Lea has a British sense of humor which is the best.  She carried out this scene with such dignity, yet allowing it to be jovial, we could not stop laughing.  Lea, you are too funny.

Lisa wants to be the peacemaker in this group but her timing is awful. That to me is disrespectful of you and your many business ventures. How would she like it if the tables were turned and someone approached her during a function of hers.  Here's the thing, she saw first hand where you came from, met your entire immediate family and learned much more about you than the rest of the girls back in Miami knew about. You've shown that you are a woman that worked to where you are at now.  I also respect Joanna because she's made her own money and is tough because of her struggles in her early life. You and Joanna make the show.

I get you Lea.  Sadly, I don't think the majority of the women you surround yourself with merit the title of friend.

ME ME ME  It is all about you.  Everything is sooooooooooooooooooooo fabulous that you have anything to do with ACCORDING TO YOU.  Frankly I am sick of your name dropping.  Wealthy people do not name drop. Only insecure new wealth does.  Mark that down in your little black book.

A good lesson for you would be to remember it is not all about you Lea.

I hope Lisa/Monster doesn't return. That was strange! Just in time for Halloween too! Lea, Lisa was venting some pent-up aggression over the no baby problem. She is a sweet girl and will return to normal.........I hope. Love you, see  ya next show

I knew that accepting her apology was only to get everyone to leave you alone about it, I don't blame you a bit. I like Lisa usually, but she was way way way out of line with her dramatics that night, and Johanna was right, her delivery was a little rough, but god, yes, Lisa ...stay out of it!  She already tried once...that should be it.  Also .. Alexia  I feel,  is no one's friend. She's talks behind everyone's back, I would never trust her (or give he the time of day). Ugh!

 I still enjoyed the Texas show. It was a side of you that has been missing. A background and more understanding of why you left Texas and sought a different life. 

This last Monday it was back to the grind of dealing with Adriana and Marysol. I don't know about you but I would have caught the next plane back to Texas! lol

Who cares where her money came from! None of our business. Only point in all of this is...is she a Good person. That is what is important in anyone. I think she is. She works for her charities and Seems to have a good heart. She is fun and entertaining too. She has More personality than all The other women put together. She is trying to move on but if anyone thinks she believes Adriana They are mistaken. They have agreed to disagree, but move on. All you can do when dealing With untrustworthy people,who lie.

Lea, I am afraid that you are going to prejudge Brazilian people for now on, and I do not blame you.... but PLEASE try to separate the character from the nationality..... Brazilian people are not always late, they are no self absorptive,  liars, superficial, talentless and tacky. Believe me! We are authentic and very different from the Brazilians you being around! Stay classy and away from people that bring you down!

Lea, hopefully you don't fall for Adriana's fake tears again. Con artists like Adriana knows your weakness, so please be careful or else you'll find yourself being scammed as you had been before. Just remember this : Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I admire you so much, you are a class act.  You looked beautiful in the last episode.  You have a sense of style and personality the others do no have.

Ahhhhh, now I see where the Texas trip fits in. Great biz move to introduce your "line" . I enjoy this side of the Housewives series. Had enough of the bored crazies though.

Lea, i applaud you for having such patience dealing with these cockroaches around you. I can't believe Lisa choose the premiere of your handbag line to discuss ''PEACEMAKING'' with nobody else than Adrianna. I like her a lot but she crossed the line. How can she not know there's a place and time for every thing?

It seems to me she's on Adrianna's side but, pretends to care for you equally. Lea, putting her in her place was the best thing to do and i appreciate you doing just that. ...And if she doesn't know, you deserve to be the HEAD BITCH IN CHARGE OVER THEM!

Apart from Joanna who i believe sincerely cares about you, (and perhaps Lisa too. However, she needs to deal with her own problems first. Lenny have made it clear he's NOT getting younger and needs a child, she should focus on making that baby!), the rest are bunch of ignorants, selfish, pathetic, delusional, lunatics and envious of you! You're a wise woman, please advise yourself.

I think Lea handled the situation better than I would have. She took the higher road to end the arguing. When the show ends Lea will be just fine. She will continue to sell her products, throw fabulous parties & attend the high society social events of Miami. The other girls will have nothing to do & are trying to desperately to hang on to the show. The other girls attack her because they are jealous. Like her or not, she's not out trying to hurt the other girls. She could have went on a much bigger rant about Adriana but she didn't. Lisa is trying to be the outspoken bad girl now to stay relevant. Alexia, Marysol & Joanna have zero story. Ana making appearances is sad, why can't she bow out gracefully & go back to washing her ex husbands dirty shorts & making him dinner. Lea may be eccentric but she's not a mean spirited person. I see her bending over backwards to make things right for her son.

Watch out for the sneaky one. She is trying to wiggle under the wire. Adriana suddenly grows up? I don't think so and I bet nether do you.

Don’t take the bait Lea. Adriana wants to make-up now? Sure, until she gets around others. I bet she talks about you again. You were smart to say “we’ll move on.” Just be careful

Adriana is suddenly nice and Lisa is loud? What was that, the multiple personalities WOM? Sorry but you are getting it from them all except Joanna. I’m confused..Ly Lea!

Is Lisa next season's Adriana? I can't believe the the transformation of Lisa into the drama queen! What is going on? Lea, you stay the same all of the time. No phoniness about you. You are the reason I watch the show.........period!

Your handbag comment was best line in the episode! Laughed out loud at that. I know you' re a bit over the top and braggadocious but I like you. You handle crazy with restraint and class. That being said, it felt like you mocked your family in Texas a bit. Maybe it's just the way you all interact but your mom seemed a little put off by some of the things u said.. Anyway, they seemed great, but I understand wanting to get out of a small town and dream big. You're an interesting lady!

I love you Lea but if the only option I am given is another season with Lea and Adrianna then this is another show off my list. I will be honest and admit I have recorded most of this season so that I can fast forward through Adrianna + the cubans and yes I realize that kills the ratings. But I will not subject myself to certain members of this cast.  If the cast remains the same I will stop recording.  My guess is because of the ratings I will have nothing to record anyway - but I just don't get how the producers don't get it? They thought we would want to watch someone that we know has been playing us for years? Add someone to the team at bravo that understands the human psyche a little.

 @muffey Totally agree with you! Her and Joanna are the most entertaining of the bunch! And she is so right to not give Adriana any camera time !!! She put that  snake on the show and look what she got! And one more time Adriana is blaming her awful behaved in being a Brazilian,  I am really sick of that!

 @LoLo72 Agree with but the fact that Joanna has no story, she has a full life and her line of story with Romain is very sweet! Besides she had fame before the show with DWTS and all her work, very different from The Haters Club ladies!

 @cinddypr WTH happen to Lisa's husband the night of the party?  I saw him briefly in a shot of the people there then the confrontation between you and Lisa which was uncalled for at your event..........then Lisa rushing out........jumping in her car and leaving.  What happen to the husband?  Lisa needs to step back a bit.  She is getting in to much hogging camera time.  And I am sick of her plastic body and her husbands eyes are worse than Kenny Rogers.

 I too record, and fast forward through a lot of it, and agree that there have to be some women in Miami with more substance than the majority of the HWs casted here.

 @River69  That's exactly the problem. No one finds it entertaining and therefore the low ratings. 

Reba39forever

@River69 Only when it is entertaining. Sadly for me and apparently 99% of the bloggers a large percentage of the current cast not entertaining. Doesn't matter for this reason and with these rating I doubt any of them will be back. Thank you Adrianna and again congrats on the 12 hour Halloween party from hell.

 I give up your right the people that pay for these shows via the commercial time don't really care if we watch the commercial's.  They are in it for the good feeling they get giving us a good quality show(sarcasm as of late). They are not busy tracking who is or is not watching the show and or their commercials. Just like I do not track how my business comes in the door. Why keep track of that silly stuff. Just keep shooting in the dark and hope something hits.

Reba39forever
Reba39forever

@River69 Sorry your just wrong. That is why they try really hard with the gimicks to try to keep you tuned in live. That is also why you have 20 second spots to slow down the fast forward - its not rocket science. The people that pay for the commerials want you to stay tuned in. As a business owner I am not going to pay a fortune for a commercial if the viewers are down and or the viewers you have are fast forwarding through my commercials. Also google it - while you have to sift through some bad information the consensis is tivo = not included in the ratings count. I agree with you on Jersey though gave that up when it went worst of the trailer park.

 @River69

 I'm not sure the advertisers would agree it is more important for us to post than to watch. Fast forwarding through the commercial time they paid for is probably not what they had in mind. This is at least part of the reason ratings matter. Just a viewer but this is my guess.

 @River69 I love watching all the RH franchises but if you compare Jersey to Miami who would you choose to watch given you could only pick one?
