Lisa's Tears and Karent's Emergency

Lea shares her thoughts on all the emotional Bimini breakdowns.

By Lea Black

Laughter and Tears

For me this episode showed the most laughter and the most tears.

I never laughed so hard as when Karent, the girls, and I were in the kitchen during breakfast. Even the chef was amused. When Karent started with the "shopping for diamonds" -- really laughed till I cried. Karent: winner of an Emmy. So much fun.
And the tears, Lisa, so felt your pain. My hope for her is she can enjoy the process, because it’s just a matter of time before babies are on the way.

And then Karent’s dad getting sick and going to the hospital while she felt stranded there. Karent is so close to her parents, and she should be admired for how good she is to them and how she cares for them. Thank goodness that this story ended well, and that she was able to get off the island despite the weather and he's now doing great.
No Mood for Fun

So it was an interesting weekend filled with a little bit of everything and a whole lot of nothing.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Miami on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Things to think about this week:

Is it easier to speak to people to their face until everyone feels they've been heard? Or easier to speak behind everyone’s back and hope the gossip doesn't get heard?

What things in life are worth one compromising truth and goodness for? Or if we just speak the truth and spread the goodness, can everyone win?Is "looking good" so important to us that we would engage in untruthful or disingenuous behavior just to protect something we could perhaps just acknowledge and move forward from?

And gossip is a state of mind -- geography doesn't change it. 

Spread the love, keep the peace, and #don't deal with stupid.

By the way, many of you asked about the handbag I wore at the premiere, it’s my personal design available at And if you watched Watch What Happens Live, callers mentioned my face looked “refreshed.”  For all my beauty secrets, visit or! Enjoy!
