Lisa felt Lea was being attacked at the Venue party (and was not being hypocritical).

on Sep 2, 20130

Let me just get right into it. Marysol and the psychic: This scene was disturbing to me. Of course I hope and pray that Elsa had a speedy recovery, and it's true that she is a strong woman. To imply “a blond woman” (Lea Black) was doing black magic to possibly contribute to Elsa’s accident is disgusting! I'm sure Lea doesn't have time to cast spells on other people or hate anyone enough to wish to hurt them. That scene was shady. Furthermore I don't understand why Marysol cares so much if Lea reaches out to her mother or not. From what I understand Marysol wants nothing to do with Lea, so why in the world would she want Lea to have any contact “or do right by her mother” if she wants nothing to do with her?

Agree.  What Alexia did was completely unnecessary and was only done to cause harm.  A certain amount of drama and cattiness is good for any show, but some of these women act like they're still in high school.  It's time to shake up things up in Miami.  Alexia shouldn't have come back and should be replaced.  Karent shouldn't have left.  Marysol should be replaced.  Adrianna should be sent packing, and Ana going was a good move.  Just my 2 cents.

Lisa, as your personality is revealed on the show, you have become my favorite...genuine...i thought you would be superficial, but not true.  My heart went out to you as you described how a woman feels about the experience having their own baby grow in their own tummy.  As a mother of two children, I completely felt your pain, knew that you were genuine with your feelings and my prayers go out to you.  I know that your husband is truly blessed to have you as his wife.  Please continue to be genuine and not let the show take over your life in a negative way that seems to happen with some of the housewives.  Stay true to who you are...sweet....caring...intelligent...and beautiful.

Lisa You Lea & Joanna are my favorites!

Listen some things are petty. They don't matter that much by themselves but Adriana LIES and stirs up problems and drama anytime she feels like it. And Alexia - is her twin and is always up for behaving like a mean girl. Lea isn't perfect and has her ways but she shows more class and goodwill toward every person there. She's honest when she doesn't like something and doesn't play games but she doesn't TRY to start problems like Adrian and Alexia. Marysol has also lost a lot of my respect recently too. Joanna is a loose canon but I don't think she is purposely MEAN like the others.

Way too much lying going on and you should watch out  for the triple A's . They seem to focus their hatred on Lea because to be honest with themselves is something they can't do.I want to include the weird Marysol too. Your husband should lay off of you about having a baby because of his age. If you just take a year off it will not matter for him. It is not your fault that he is older than you.

Lisa, Is Alexia's hosting etiquette questionable? No! She said as long as no glass is flying, she's ok with it...where's the question in that?!

Lisa, I feel so terrible for you concerning getting pregnant, and carrying a baby to term. But please consider a surrogate. Do you know of Bill and Giuliana Ransic's story....they went through absolute hell to have a child, it was well documented on their reality show. Anyway, I'm sure "G"'would tell you that having that child outweighs any feelings of failure, or not being good enough, that may have ever crossed her mind. They now have a beautiful baby boy. Please reconsider. Also, have you ever considered that if you do have a child via surrogate, that that may take the pressure off of you, and you may actually end up pregnant naturally?? It is your child whether or not you carry a child to term yourself. God bless.

Hopefully, someday someone who is legitimately getting married and having a genuine wedding ceremony, and who actually is a real friend will ask you to be a bridesmaid.  Then you will have the experience of being there for someone who is a true friend instead of the sham between Adrianna and Fredric.

Lisa, Adrianna is a LIAR...she is MARRIED...she went to the court house and got a marriage license...went back a month later and got it notarized/official...making her a married women. I remember episodes from earlier seasons with Lea and Adriana discussing Adrianna dating someone. It wouldn't surprise me if she did go out on dates while married. Adrianna is mad at Lea for what again? Telling the truth....

I thought it was in very poor taste of you to run to  Adriana and tell her of your conversation with Lea.  What motivates you to do that?

Why are you friends with Adriana???? She sucks! It's only a matter of time until she pisses you off with all of her lies.

Lisa, just a quick comment about your pregnancy issue... gestation really isn't where the mother-baby bonding takes place.  I have three kids and the most special bonding moments I shared with them were during breastfeeding.  If you could stimulate lactation (I'm sure there must be hormones to do that), once your baby is born from a surrogate, nurse him/her right away, and you experience the most incredible mother-child bond imaginable.  This is honestly the most special part of mothering a child to me.  Also, the "family bed" (keeping baby near his/her mother) is also so special.  Best of luck to you! xo

You are a breath of fresh air on this show.  I believe Lea acted appropriately at the Venue party.  She greeted people, even those who dislike her, rather than ignore them.  She's really in a no win situation with some of these ladies.  If she acknowledges them, she is being "phoney."  If she doesn't greet them, she's being rude.  I am on team Lea and Lisa.  Ana, Alexia, and Adriana are awful!

Lisa..ironically you turned out to be my fave. The peacemaker, the sweetie pie who doesn't want to see trouble. Stay away from all the hatred though, its scary!

Well stated.  I agree with your view point.  The 3 A's - ANA, ALEXIA & ADRIANA are really ego maniacs and very self serving. Watch ur back with Adriana. She lies and is only about herself.

Lisa I hope you get pregnant and feel the joy of bringing a baby into the world. I truly wish that for you. Don't give up but you need to lay off the injections and surgery and give your body time to heal. You're only 30! No need for that now. Eat right and like Lea said last season get all your plates spinning on making it happen. Stay on that instead of fights that have nothing to do with you. Believe in blessings not luck.l

I just wanted to comment on one thing. As a Cuban American I have a first hand account of the spirituality in the Cuban Culture. While I do not fully believe it (I am a bit of a skeptic), I understand and respect this type of spirituality is a serious thing. I highly doubt that the spiritual reading was phony. I especially do not believe that someone like Marysol (and essentially Elsa) who believe in this would stage a phony reading. People need to respect others beliefs.

I'm taken with you, Lisa.  It took me a bit, but I have respect for the way you handle stressful situations, and I think your heart is always in a good place.  I'm glad to see that you have Lea's back at this time. I'm thinking she's pretty much overwhelmed by the outward displays of hate towards her.  I really dislike watching that kind of behavior, i.e., Ana's overt dishonesty in saying hello to Leo and then laughing at her behind her back.  Keep it up, Lisa.  The viewer can see your kindness and your willingness to get everyone in a good place.  Now that you've tried to do that, don't try anymore,  It's not worth the stress to you!

Lisa is the only person that is worth watching on the show. She's fun; light hearted and seems to be the only genuine person on the show.

 

The beginning of this season has not been fun to watch at all. If i have to hear Adriana's story or Lea's bitching any longer; im going to take this show off my DVR list.

Hi Lisa,

You are my favorite! You are very reasonable and intelligent person. Your wonderful personality makes you look even more beautiful. I wish you all the best in life, you deserve it. :)

Your scenes still seem phony!! especially when Adriana asked you to be a bridesmaid!! Your response seemed over the top and not very authentic!! Bottom line Adriana lied! I don't know what your so confused about? The way she is spinning the story is very telltale..  And I think If you were in Lea's shoes you would be upset too!  All the ladies in Adriana's lil posse are beyond annoying! Especially Ana! Can't stand her! Her true colors were not pretty at the reunion! For a woman who claims to be such an advocate for woman or such a feminist she sure loves to judge other woman based on age and looks! Doesn't sound like a very liberated woman to me! She sounds more like a chauvinistic pig! Marysol's attempt to make it look like Lea placed black magic on her mother was an epic flop!

Hi Lisa...

 

I think you're awesome. I'm sorry about your troubles having a child...but don't give up hope. If it was meant to be...it will. Stay strong. Blessings.

You Joanna and Lea are my favorites. The bathtub scene was rather funny and cute. I wish you and Lenny would consider adoption. There are so many children who need loving parents and you two could give that child an amazing life. You are so beautiful and so lucky to have the life you have why not give back and adopt a child. It would bring you such good karma and when the pressure is off you to have your own child. That will be when God gives you your own. look at Angelina Jolie and Brad Pit. She adopted 3 and was giving 3 of her own. I hope it happens for you and I know you'll be an amazing mother but be open to other options. Trust me you will fall in love regardless if you gave birth or adopted your child.

I agree with you Lisa that seemed like a setup  Marysol wants to destroy Lea an hurt her anyway she can.  She has become a mean spirited person sorry I wont be sad to see her off the grid I just hope its soon.

Thank you for calling Alexia out. She was so out of line. She even said that she wanted the drama there because it would get people talking about her party, perhaps that's why she was mad that Lea was being nice.

@ESinAZ she has nothing else to do. Also, Joanna gave her the article and she told the witch it was Lea. Lisa is a pot stirrer for sure.

@Ivy01 Lisa is a little pot stirrer. After Lea said to her to clearly stay out of it, she then invites Adriana over and shows her the license and says Lea said this and Lea told me that. She needs to mind her business. I'm about to delete the show as well. I can't take this Adriana character and her crew.

 @Ivy01 I don't think I heard the bitching from Lea.  The bitching was coming out of 'Adrianna's voice.

 @Lubby I was thinking the same thing! She's just so happy to be a bridesmaid, that she could care less if Adriana.

@piperbeau so she has a nutty friend, so what? Is she supposed to distance herself just because Adrianna and Lisa don't get along? Is she supposed to be the moral police? Seriously?

@Vthom yeah I know but she clearly has had a bit of work done at such a young age. I think she should try the surrogate route for now because she's had a few miscarriages already. I think it will happen when she's not obsessing over it. She can always try after. Like Lea said get a few plates spinning and once she has one then everything will fall into place. I'm speaking from experience.

 @Lubby  @blacrose10913 Her being unable to carry a child to term is ridiculous? Or something else? I can't reasonably understand how her fertility problems make her look like an idiot.
