Lisa dishes on her trip to Texas and meeting Lea's family.

on Oct 22, 20130

I mentioned that Lenny and I were having tension in our relationship. I wish I said that differently, because it sounded like a bigger deal than it was. The whole baby making thing is of course creating tension. Of course no relationship is perfect. For the most part I would say about 90% of the time my relationship with my husband is wonderful. Whenever you see something play out on TV, it just becomes magnified.

My prayers go out to Elsa, and it breaks my heart to see Marysol so upset.

Lisa, you are a wonderful positive lady and after reading a few of the posts here, I realize that there must be some sort of jealousy with the obvious negative comments. Your quote is right on! Always rise above the crap and be your true self.

#1   Mind your own business hon.

 

#2   Never, never let your husband have plastic surgery again.  His eyes are a mess.  He looks scary.  I hope the doctor that screwed him up did not damage the rest of his body.

 

#3  The same advice goes to you.  Stay away from Botox for a few years.  Your face is frozen.

Lisa I think you are having some kind of breakdown. You need to focus on something other than getting these women together. Something is wrong, either you are having troubles at home or you are pumped full of hormones. You are showing a very angry side. It seems you are flipping like a switch. I think you're coming across as superficial and hopefully that is not who you are. With the way you spend money it is no wonder your husband is always working. You really need to watch yourself this season.

You're meddling is getting old. You say you're a peacemaker and then end up in a fight?? You don't know how to be a peacemaker. You need to start minding your own business. or get a job.

You need to wrap your head around the fact that you have NO right to dictate who people must be friends with.  This includes not only Joanna and Lea but also anyone else on this planet.   The fact that you may wish everyone and everything to be "Kumbaya" might be your personal ideal, but it's not realistic and it really isn't any of your business.  I can't stand Adriana either, and I don't even know her personally.  She's vile and cruel and very viscous, (and this is only from the small part we see), so I know she is a person I do not (and would never) respect.   Befriend her all you want, (your turn in her line of fire will come eventually),  but stop trying to force others to befriend her.  

The things Adriana said to and about Joanna publicly were completely unforgivable.  Yet Joanna had come to accept the fact that one of her friends (you) planned to remain friends with that person.  But how do you respond to this concession and acknowledgment on Joanna's part of knowing and understanding that you and Adriana are and will remain friends and there's nothing she can do about it ? .... YOU THROW ADRIANA IN HER FACE (CONSTANTLY) AND PREACH ABOUT HOW SHE IS FILLED WITH REMORSE AND HOW THE OTHERS MUST MAKE AMENDS WITH HER.  You're doing this to someone whose bridal party you agreed to be in and whom you know was incredibly slandered by this psycho.  Adriana did horrible, unspeakable things to two people you call friends and yet you PUSH THEM.  Push, push, push.  It's to the point where your actions are telling them, as the victims of the psycho, are the ones in the wrong.  Wake up, Lisa!  Because you obviously don't get it....

And because you don't get it, I'm going to tell you what you are missing:  Every time you do throw Adrianna in their faces and/or try to force them to befriend her, you DISRESPECT them -- you disrespect them as your friends and you DEMEAN and DOWNPLAY what Adriana did to them.  This would be very upsetting to me (if my "friend") constantly did this.  This makes them angry and rightfully so!   And you do it CONSTANTLY.

They have RESPECTED you in your decision to remain her friend but  you seem to be completely incapable of respecting their decision to distance themselves from that delusional crack pot.  Up until this latest stunt, I thought you were terrific.  Now, not so much.    To use your own words, Lisa... YOU need to stop trying to be "the head bitch in charge!"  Step back, zip your lips, and be a friend, not a "chit" stirrer.

Lisa, You need to mind your own business. Period. It's called being a grown up

Lisa, If you really wanted to get pregnant, you would completely stop drinking, eat healthy nourishing meals that promote fertility, such as the Harvard Fertility diet that is high in whole milk dairy, fish, chicken and lean meat, whole grains, and fruits and veggies, and lots of water. But when you eat terribly, and drink lots of alcohol between IVF and other pregnancy tries, you ruin your body. You have to build up your body to sustain and nourish life, that doesn't happen by eating on the run and drinking alcohol. Lisa you were completely obnoxious to Lenny- he works hard to give you your lifestyle - you should have a wholesome HOME cooked meal on the table every night for Lenny and yourself. you can learn to cook- you are not an airhead and your body will be more healthy for pregnancy. spend less time with idiotic women.

When you launch a peacemaker crusade, don't then start a battle of your own in the middle of it.......keep a level head and listen rather than engage in a juvenile argument yourself. Kudos for making an effort but back off when people aren't receptive. Lea ended up having to calm you as if you were a teenager throwing a tantrum. As much as you patted yourself on the back, a lot of good it all did. Sounds like the feud is back on.

Lisa, you were 100% WRONG bringing up Adrianna at Lea's event.  Has she not had enough crap at every single event aired this season?  What's wrong with you.   I loved that you defended her at the Birthday party, but you didn't defend anyone at the launch party, you STARTED it.  You seriously need to stop.  Be a friend, don't be a pot stirrer!

Lisa-lay off the filler in your lips--it was hard to follow your conversation last night because your lips don't move.  You are a pretty lady enjoy these next few years of natural beauty.

 

I get you think you are a peacemaker but your aren't even that great at facilitating a meeting.  I feel as if you want to be a peacemaker so you are in all the camera shots.  You looked a little desperate last night trying to be center stage with John Rich-it was Lea's party.    Remember the be the one you called a bitch?  Or was it head bitch?

Lisa you are such a trouble maker!!! While in Texas you were trying so hard to get some juice on Lea even as her guest shame! shame!! shame on you!!! You continue to go back and forth gossiping and stirring the pot! You pretend to be Joanna's and Lea's friend and you are not!!! Lisa you are always in public events and thats when you want to become peacemaker when in reality your nothing more then a trouble maker. How can you claim to have more class then anyone else when you are screaming at everyones events? You were telling Joanna not to put her finger in your face yet you kept putting your finger in Joanna's face and hitting her hand. What Lisa you can tell others to do what you say but not what you do? You are a very ugly person inside the way you treat your in-laws, your friends. With friends like you who needs enemies!!! The other woman are going to see you for who you really are a fake and phoney they will get tired of all your bull crap!! I suppose miseray loves company and that is why you are getting in other peoples business but maybe you need fix you and take care of own problems at home!!!

Lisa,

Stop with the peacemaking, you don't have the emotional maturity to pull it off. 

You were actually NOT acting classy...you cant MAKE people make up if they are

not ready,THAT is when peacemaking becomes a bad thing.  Learn that!

I love you Lisa! but I do think Lea's handbag party was not the time or place to discuss her issues with Adriana!

Your true colors came through on tonight's episode... You were out of line with Lea one hundred percent... Period... She doesn't go out of her way to speak about Adriana to you, so you should really mind your freaking business!! And you keep saying Lea owes Adriana an apology??!! FOR WHAT??  Be more specific! You want Lea to apologize for something she didn't do?! I kind of don't blame Joanna for being annoyed with you! You act all innocent yet you were the one going in on Lea?!! WTF??!!

Please stop trying to be the peacemaker. It seems you stir up more problems than you solve. I think your just bored and instead of focusing on your life you stick you nose in everywhere. Looks like you just want the low down on everyone to make you feel like your just helping but really your just nosey. Please back off and get a more fulfilling life.

I agree Lisa, this episode was very uplifting and powerful for women!  Thanks Lea and Lisa!  It was so refreshing to see women working together and also see a real friendship.  Lisa. I appreciate that you state your opinion and stick up for the right thing.  You are not a yes person and you are a true friend.  Good luck on your skin care venture.

love you on the show, you are a fighter, your loyalty to Lenny is admirable. I have never seen that man not smiling at you, he loves you so much. looks at you with adoration and love. how lucky are you to have that- obviously you love him as well.  sometimes you are childlike in your enthusiasm for life, people and things. don't lose that, it keeps you young! I  think you would find a much better friend in Marysol than Lea.  you will probably find that out on your own. there is only one thing that you need to be impressed with and that is Lenny. not handbags or jewels. Lea will dump you and hurt you in time much like Adriana.. I think she just tires of people to be honest.   she needs a constant stream of new people in her life and then moves on.  this is not bad, just who she is.  she certainly seems tired of her family.  felt so badly for her mother standing there after the rude comments after you left texas.  RJ's comments about you should not have been excused. I am sure Roy would not approve! Hope you have a healthy child. Maybe your reluctance to have kids is you don't want an absentee father for them.. Lenny works a lot for sure.

Lisa, we are so happy that you came with Lea to TEXAS. It was such a pleasure to meet you. You are a very sweet beautiful person inside and out. Also, lots of fun to be around. You were such a great sport to ride the mechanical bull first!!! Thank you for supporting Lea and listening to old girlfriends reminisce our past. I wish you and Lenny success in the baby department. You both will make wonderful parents one day. Please come back to DALLAS to visit us. Oh and congratulations and good luck with your new skincare line.

it was interesting to see just how incredibly successful Lea was for years in HER OWN RIGHT.  Where's "Ms. On her Back, Ana" now?  Eating crow.  She's a waste of space.  Bravo please don't give her another second of air time -- not even in a cameo!

You sound very proud of your husband's accomplishments as anyone would.  With what he does with all of his hard work, it seems you would have respected him and his occupation and not berated him to stay at the charade of a party when the hostess was beyond rude to her guests.  

 

You seems somewhat immature compared to Lenny.  He likely enjoys your fun loving spirit compared to the seriousness of his work atmosphere.  Maybe you should try to look at things from his perspective and apologize for being insensitive to his needs.  Trying to please Adrianna is and endless, thankless job.  That is obvious.  Your loyalty and concern needs to be for your husband. Hopefully, you will get that before your marriage suffers.

 

Usually you are fun to watch and have a good perspective with regard to the ladies' antics and do't allow them to BS. You have called them on it many times.  You allowed Adrianna to take advantage of you and Lenny, however.  Good luck to you and Lenny in the baby department.

OMG, Rebound!!!  What clarity! 

You put into words everything I was thinking but didn't use the energy to rationally set forth. These are my feelings about this debacle, about the people involved and Lisa's ill-advised meddling into the damage angriana perpetuates.

 @melanie.white.102361 I find it interesting that someone that doesn't know Lisa find it necessary to tell her she should make home cooked meals for her husband every night. Even though he doesn't seem to be there because he is busy working.. And you are judging her on a few moments that's she on a tv show, not even her entire life. You don't even know her entire medical history. Do you know that some women just miscarry? That's just what their bodies do. Have you heard that part of the show? That she CAN get pregnant, she just can't carry to term. And there is no real reason why a body miscarries. They just do..

UThousewife

 @zoeyandzacksmom If you look at pictures of her when she was younger she has these lovely full lips. She was born with them.. Seriously.. Lay off with all the judgments people, especially if you have no idea what you're talking about.

 @Mature What are Lea, Johanna and Adriana's story line? What's their point? After Joanna and Adrianna get married what's their point? What's Lea's point? And let's throw in Marysol. Who cares about her mom. I'm sorry about her health but her mother isn't a housewife. All the women are on the show to interact with each other in one way or another and have a small storyline aside from each other. That's the point. Lisa's is trying to get pregnant and dealing with that. That's her point. The show is just silly, fun indulgent that's to be a good time. You don't really learn anything from this show you're to be entertained from this show. You have no idea what she does with her time. But I"m pretty sure that this show, that is her job, is a hobby as well.. She may want children to feel more fulfilled but it's a pretty save bet that she has a very fulfilled life.

 @Sweeteena1018 You are so right, no emotional maturity!  With Lea, Lisa is like a child trying to tell the mother what to do....so happy Lisa told her to but out.

 @piperbeau

 I Agree, Lisa is starting to show how immature she really is.  I started noticing how silly

 and immature she is when she couldn't understand why her husband was fed up with

that sham of a wedding and wanted to go home because the waiting was rude and

disrespectful to the guest.  Lisa is so nosey and does not have the maturity to know

when something needs to be dropped.  She also so naïve that she cant see the real

issues that Lea has with Adrianna.....Lisa lives in this bubble of her and Lenny just

trying to get pregnant and nothing else, she should do something for herself then maybe

she'll stop trying to be the peacemaker.  Lisa was definitely acting like a brat this episode.

 @lynnwhitlock She seems to me like every other bored housewife that has nothing going for herself. Sorry I call it like I see it. I have my own career and what I can't stand are these women/men who have not contributed in any way to society and ride on their husbandswives coat tails. NOT IMPRESSED. I laugh when I see a man who is undeniably intelligent marry a playboy bunny...Now days you can have it all brains and good looks, men don't sell yourself short.

 I think Lisa was between a rock and a hard place regarding the wedding.  She clearly loves and adores Lenny, but, it's not like she could convince Bridezilla to get her behind down to the reception.

That's one of those situations where eveyone's nerves are shot, and what you WANT to do is always contrary to what you SHOULD do.

 @Sweeteena1018   Lisa seems to have waaaay too much time on her hands! If she were more busy she probably wouldn't insert herself into the feud... or she probably wouldn't feel the need to play peace maker! The annoying thing about it is Lea has already told her on several occasions that she didn't care to speak about it with her.. She made that very clear!

@Pokadot Oh, ok. You didn't get the point either. I'll just throw in my husbands bio seeing we are talking Texas... He was from Texas of the South, not Texas of the Midwest..... Oh never mind, he wasn't a genius, but he did know where in the country he lived;)

 @bpster Well, laugh away then. Go off and be judgmental.. Since all you are going off of when you are judging people is well, not a whole hell of a lot. And as far as Lisa all you have is an edited version of her.  And you don't even know her.
