Alexia's Questionable Host Etiquette

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

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?

Moving on, can we talk about how fabulous Fabio and Hernan are? This is the first time I met these two, and I have come to just love them! For the record no one informed me that Lea and Adriana had that huge blow up at Lea’s house or that Marysol was seeing psychics telling her craziness about Lea. This is why I invited everyone to Baoli. I had no idea things had escalated so much. If I did, I would know better than to get them together after so much fire. Do they not remember just weeks ago they were at my home to try to work things out? For the most part, we ended on a good note.

I'm just getting to know all these women, so I don't know everybody's past and I certainly don't dig to find out. Slowly information is being passed along to me. Of course it's not right for anyone to be accepting anything from anyone under false pretenses, if that’s not 100 percent accurate. No one’s story seems to be 100 percent accurate. There are two sides to every story, and then there’s the truth.

Anyway I'm sick of feeling like a punching bag and having some of these women take digs at me for just trying to do what I felt was right. I'm done being a friend the best way I know how and going out of my way. I wash my hands of it. Moving onto Lenny and I, I don't think our sex life is as bad as Joanna and Romain's, because we definitely are having sex more than every other month like Joanna had mentioned. I think when you're married and you're exhausted, you know that person is always going to be there so there's no immediate rush. I personally think many people lie about how many times they really have sex, and it makes others feel like they're not getting the normal amount.

I was honored and very excited when Adriana asked me to be her bridesmaid. I am happy for her and Fredric if they are happy, and I've always wanted to be a bridesmaid. I fortunately had the opposite problem than most women, where I was the bride first and never a bridesmaid!

I decided to miss the Venue party because there is one every month and at this moment in time I wanted to focus on my husband, since he was able to be home early that night.I think Fredric was simply being a good guest and I don't think he had any ill intent when saying hi to Romain. If Romain and Frederic made amends after Fredric tweeted about Romain, he should have simply moved on.

I thought it was very immature of Ana to get such joy out of making Lea uncomfortable when she went over to say hi to Joanna. I felt bad for Lea, because she simply went to support Alexia at the Venue party and she was being attacked. She was pleasant to everyone, which is how any adult guest should act at a party. I was also shocked that Alexia got in Lea's face and called her a hypocrite, especially in front of Ana. Lea didn't go there to start any drama and all it did was make her feel uncomfortable. Not very good host etiquette. Some of these women have said that I like to “stir the pot” or get in other people’s business, but it seems like they are being a bunch of hypocrites.
Thanks for reading my blog. Until next week!

Hoping to Move Forward with Lea

Marysol shares what she hopes will come out of the reunion.

For me the reunion is a forum to hash things out and engage in verbal mud wrestling and hopefully come out cleansed from the tension and disagreements. I would like to make it clear that I do not hate anyone; I am not a person that likes to live in anger as it only makes you miserable and takes away from the precious moments of our lives. It is no secret that I have spent a couple of years being accused of lying by Lea when we do not see eye to eye on something. It is very frustrating to have issues with someone and always end up at the same place of “her word against mine.”

Unfortunately, my father this year has also had a rapid decline in his health and has spent the better part of the past few months in and out of the hospital. While dad was in the hospital with nothing else to do besides sleep, read, and watch TV he watched every episode of RHOM. He was very upset when he saw Lea saying I was lying when I said she didn’t call, write, or send flowers to mom for 8 weeks. He called me and said to figure out a way to video tape me and put it on that show of yours because I’ve had enough of the lies. My father was by mother’s side every day from the moment she went into the hospital to the day she came home (2 months later). He saw everyone who passed by, saw every flower and card that was sent etc. I truly was uncomfortable videotaping him in a hospital setting, but I was leaving for the reunion and he called relentlessly several times a day insisting I let him speak his mind for the cameras. If you thought Mama Elsa was tough, guess who she learned it from, that’s right, her husband of 52 years, Donald Patton. You never met anyone more ornery, stubborn, or tough, but I wouldn’t trade him for the world.

I have said my peace, which is what I went to the reunion to do. I have moved forward and forgive those who have hurt me and I forgive myself for those I may have hurt. I truly want to move forward to a better place with Lea to the best of our ability. We may never be best friends, but I’d like to think we can at least be in the same room, be cordial, and maybe even share a laugh someday.

It has been a fun season with the ladies and it provided a great distraction from the personal emotional struggles I was going through with my parents’ declining health.  I hope you enjoyed the season, thank you for all of your support and best wishes for my mother as that has been the greatest gift the show has brought us.
