My relationship with Lea has really grown this season. I was flattered that Lea trusted me enough (even though she puts up walls occasionally) to go to Texas with her to meet her wonderful family. They welcomed me with open arms and treated me like family. I felt right at home. They are beautiful people inside and out. I see where Lea gets her big heart from. I was also deeply saddened to discover that she had lost a sister not too long ago. My heart goes out to them. I know their sister is watching over Lea and her family.
I was thrilled to learn about Lea’s accomplishments. She is a self-made woman who has worked hard her entire life. She has motivated and touched so many around her. Meeting with her girlfriends in Texas was such beautiful, positive moment highlighting women empowering one another. Something I would like to see more of on TV, especially in reality TV.
