Lisa's Button-Pushing Behavior

Marysol doesn't think Lisa should have gotten involved in her discussion with Lea.

This episode was particularly interesting for me to watch as I see people twisting the truth to save face.

My days are quite busy with running my PR firm, The Patton Group, and caring for my mother. No matter how busy I am, I would never miss Alexia’s actual birthday so I ran quickly to her office to bring her a gift. Alexia and I had just received Adriana’s wedding invitation and were so confused that we had to actually do a costume change between the ceremony and the reception. I love the idea of a theme wedding, but changing ensembles in an unfamiliar venue seemed like torture to me.

Our girlfriend Lauren Foster invites me and Adriana to the Miami Institute for Age Management to get much needed vitamin I.V.’s. Between the stress of mom’s health and work, I’m exhausted and cranky and need something to bring me back to my center. Since Adriana was hooked up to an I.V. machine and unable to escape, I took the opportunity to try to convince her to NIX the costume changes at the wedding. That went over like a lead balloon, and I was dismissed instantly.

I found the meeting between Lea and Alexia regarding Lea completely ignoring the fact that mom has been at death’s door ridiculous. Lea knows the truth and that will weigh on her conscience, not mine. I don’t need to convince anyone of the truth.

At Alexia’s birthday party I asked her if she minded that I speak with Lea and give her the opportunity to explain why she had ignored mom for two plus months. Alexia felt it was a good idea to clear the air and said she was fine with it. When I went to speak to Lea, I was shocked that she looked straight at me and lied. This started to get me upset and I had no choice but to call her out. Her behavior was very odd the way she ran away, her body language was saying something very different than what was coming out of her mouth.  
Lisa jumped into a conversation that she knew nothing about and was really pushing my buttons. She does not know my mother and she certainly did not know the relationship Lea had with my mother. Lisa also has not been by my side for 2.5 months straight to know that day after day not a note, nor a call, nor flowers were ever received by anyone in my family on behalf of Lea. My mother, father, and brother will be the first ones to tell the world that that is the honest truth.

Do I care that Lea did not send anything? No, because I know who she is and it’s not a shocker. Am I upset that she is lying about it and many other things? YES.

Today I’m really happy and grateful my mom is home and safe. I have made peace in my heart and mind with everything unpleasant that occurred so many months ago.Tune in next week for more drama and shenanigans.

Lea's Double Standards

Adriana explains why she was so surprised by Joanna and Lea's behavior.

I would like to start by saying that I tried my best to bond with Joanna and remain friendly after attending her bachorelette party and wedding. I truly was hoping for a budding friendship. All season long, she criticized me in her weekly blogs, criticized my wedding, and even then I took the high road and didn't engage in the low blows and continued hostility she has demonstrated towards me for a while now. However, I couldn’t stay quiet any longer when she started to attack my credibility. Enough is enough! I've learned that bullies like her will not stop the attack until you stand your ground. She showed me her true colors when she stated she wanted “to rip my head off.” Such aggressive behavior like that could no longer be ignored. Joanna is always stating that she is beautiful and because of that she thinks she has license to act UGLY!

Furthermore, I couldn't remain silent while she was attacking Lisa and being so cold to her and her struggle with infertility. Claiming that Lisa is a party girl and is always drinking is not the attitude of a friend. Joanna and Lisa had been friends and even had dinner together the night before and all was well between them, until Joanna decided to turn on Lisa... I was shocked, how can a friend blatantly attack her friend with such coldness?! She should not talk about things she knows nothing about!

Another shocker was to see Lea sitting there silently and not coming to Lisa's defense... She crucified me this season and did a complete character assassination of my person for not speaking up when Ana attacked her last year, so I was very surprised to see her do the exact same thing to her new bestie... Double standards, as usual!

In conclusion, don't judge others unless you have walked a mile in their shoes!
