Sweet Charity

Lea discusses Adriana and Fredric, and says what she will about the gala.

By Lea Black

Marysol's wedding was stunning. What a beautiful blushing bride. I wish we all could have been there supporting her but I completely respect their wanting to make that moment only about them, as weddings can be stressful enough. Marysol, I wish you both a life filled with success, happiness, laughter, and lots of good sex!

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Miami on Bravo Wednesdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Poor Alexia -- a car wreck! Glad you're OK. Sorry you missed the Gabriella Arango fashion show, but Cristy stepped up and modeled as "Barbie" and her sister and did a great job.

Now, about the lunch at Martorano's -- it was an hour drive for me so I was a bit lost and late. The food was delicious. And what about all those tattoos? Not only was that lunch interesting for many reasons, but it led me to someone who really needed help, and my husband and I are doing everything in our power to help him. Stay tuned for (hopefully) a miracle in the making! (Editor's note: we've got the scoop on the situation here.)

Adriana has never asked me to set her up with any man, rich or otherwise. I have never offered or suggested to set her up with any man! Like she needs me to fix her up? Now that's funny! Not too many months after I met her, she started dating Frederic, whom I loved from the first time I met him at Fisher Island during lunch. So the Adriana "uses or kisses up to Lea" so I will "introduce her to men with money" comment -- where did that come from? Another self-reflection? I'm not even going to go into the gala again. We addressed that. It's over and done with, but has anyone noticed a pattern of some who so eagerly speak bad about the rest of us in their interviews (but not to our faces)? And as Cristy says, "let's not talk about 'charity'." "Charity"? I am not going to apologize for talking about a charity that helps those in need!

While we are on the subject of charity: in the brief clip where I was making an appearance at another charity (not my own), I lament that many of these young girls' stories, and the content of our class wasn't shown to a greater extent. They are the heroes, and you would have been just as inspired as I was by them and how open they are to creating a better future for not only themselves, but for those also in need! I think they were nervous with the cameras there, and yet brave enough to tell.

Next week has some of the lowest moments of bad behavior, and some of the most hilarious moments to laugh at (hope ya'll get the jokes! LOL!), and ends with an experience that I have learned from, taken some praise and criticism for, and had lots of hearty laughs over.

Meanwhile, the gala is coming up soon with Dionne Warwick, Pharell Williams, Pit Bull, and more. And of course I'm still running three businesses, loving my son and hubby beyond words, and have lots of plates spinning, and lots more to talk about other than the charity and other people.

Keep the peace and spread the love.
