Why Would Alexia Perpetrate a Lie?

Lea was shocked by Alexia's digs.

Truth or Consequences

Welcome back! Are we having FUN yet? How beautiful is Miami? We are so lucky to live in a vacation destination. The show will be just like Miami -- sizzling hot!

I'm always ready for surprises, but even I was taken aback by tonight’s biggest surprise -- Alexia’s lie, quoting me as having said her son Peter should go to JAIL for 25 years! Everyone knows I have spent 19 years raising funds to help give kids second chances and keep them out of jail.

Visit and see my stance against sending kids to prison. What I do speaks louder than what the phonies say.

So, why would Alexia perpetrate this lie? She knows it's a lie. She knows I reached out immediately after Peter was arrested and offered my support many times. (Should Alexia tell us which of the haters told her that lie? And why she would repeat it, at Peter’s expense?)I gave a public response just a few days after Peter’s arrest at the 20th annual Boys & Girls Clubs fundraiser, where I was quoted by the reporters who bombarded me with questions about Peter. I was quoted as saying, "That kid has a heart of gold. Of course he made a mistake and it’s hard to accept, because I'm always on the side of the underdog. But I love Alexia and I know she raised him right." You can Google it (lea black-peter rosello-joselambiet). My statement and private support to Alexia was in the face of a media frenzy labeling him a spoiled brat who deserved a prison cell. I didn't take the popular position.

So the haters just feed off the negativity and used Alexia just to take another jab at me. Poor Alexia, did she not realize she was being used by the haters? Why bring up an ugly story about her son in a vain attempt to attack me? The only person that loses is Peter, her son. One thing I know for certain, she knew BEFORE she made that comment that it was a LIE -- it's just a shame she had to repeat it. Well girls, keep coming at me with lies and I will respond with the truth and get ready for some collateral damage.

Moving on to the luncheon at Lisa's that I missed. Before we start, let me send Elsa a get well wish and love. Thank you, Lisa, for all your fabulous luncheons, cocktails, parties, and all of your good intentions in bringing everyone together to mend fences, and for your friendship.
Speaking of friendships, where did the Lea/Adriana friendship go awry? And why did Adriana turn against me? According to her, I didn't have her "back" her when she slapped Joanna. A true friend has the guts to tell you when you're wrong, and Adriana, you were wrong. Does telling her to "take the high road" justify her betrayal and her joining of the hater club?

Back to the luncheon, I didn't go for a couple of reasons. My son was on spring break and we had family plans in L.A., and does anyone really think the way to mend a friendship rift is at a luncheon discussing it with a bunch of girls over cocktails? It would have put me in the position to discuss all the ugly facts in front of everyone. I just thought it would be more appropriate not to bring everyone into it and have people taking sides and giving opinions.

Why air all of Adriana's dirty laundry in front a group? Why embarrass her? Of course she did an excellent job of embarrassing herself by saying I only bought things from her and didn't give her "cash." Wow! A lot more to that story.

My instinct was to have a one-on-one conversation with Adriana, and hopefully just put it behind us and move on… Well stay tuned to see how that works out!And the Frederic/Adriana soap opera drama...really? LOL! Was that a set-up for the latest "marriage story"? His impersonation of me could have been funny, had it not been so mean-spirited. Amy Phillips’ is much better. But who can blame a guy for backing up his wife of 5 years? And thank you, Fredric, for promoting my new handbag line!

Congratulations to Joanna on your upcoming wedding plans and on your new car. Romain, you sure know how to make a girl happy!

The design experiences with Hernan Arriaga and Fabio Lopes made it all so exciting and inspiring -- stay tuned for the before and after. They are so fabulous, so fun, and such creative geniuses -- and over the top delicious -- I just love and adore them! And Joulian the project manager rocks too.This season has two weddings and a funeral (of a friendship). Or was it a friendship resurrection? Or was it: a wedding, a renewal of vows, and a stab in the back?

Expect drama, lies, betrayal, turmoil, raw emotions, laughs, giggles, fun, outrage, fake outrage, fake friendships, and much more.

During the flurry of all the stories you will hear, you can count on me to be straight with you.

I live my life like everything matters, because I think it does.

Spread the love and keep the peace.

Till next week! Love, Lea

Live like #everything matters.
And #don’t deal with stupid.

An X-Rated Reunion

Lea weighs in on all the drama from Part 1 of the 'Miami' Reunion.

The Reunion

Why do they call it a reunion? I don't see anyone re-uniting! LOL!

For me, I tried to set the record straight, but when people yell and scream every time you speak, it’s not easy. 

I did notice the same people I give the benefit of the doubt to week after week continue to take anyone’s side but mine and get their digs in every time they can. Shame on them.

As far as the bickering, well, I guess that's what one would expect at a forum such as this, but some of the X-rated, nasty comments and name calling were outright disgusting and embarrassing. Beneath what is acceptable for this franchise and for public viewing, in my opinion. 

I give thanks every day that I work the show into my life rather than my life into the show. I have been the same person all these years, and I haven't nor will I say or do things just for attention or relevance, or to make someone look bad. Watching this reunion reminds me how far some will go, and who some are at their core. I cringe for them. I hope you've enjoyed the reunion so far. Please stay in communication through social media, and I appreciate that you took time from your life to watch this season. I hope you were sometimes inspired, other times entertained and amused, enjoyed a laugh or two and sometimes learned from all of our mistakes.

Tune into my Reality Check tomorrow at 1PM EST to hear more recap with me and some surprise guests:
Join us on Thursday for Part 2.

Spread the love and keep the peace.

Love, Lea
