Lea shares her thoughts on the wild Vegas trip and the conversation with Adriana.

Doesn't that say it all? Fun weekend. Crazy girls, crazy fun. (And certifiably crazy in some instances.) Not kidding!
 
What a weekend!  I'd like to say what goes on in Vegas stays in Vegas, but we all know it doesn't. Overall it was fun, feisty, and devoid of any sleep.

I personally like Lisa being feisty with a few cocktails, I think she was adorable. It was all innocent fun.

It's hard to be the clown and run the circus. I sort of felt like both during Vegas. LOL!

And what about all of those fabulous hot young guys hitting on me? Do you think it was my jewelry or me? SCREAM HERE with LAUGHTER! LOL!

What was crazier: 5 Cents at the pool and our dancing number? Or the beefy bus boy duo that I called Truth, Justice, and the American Way (because one had truth and justice tattoos and the other was wearing an American flag g-string. And that g-string wasn't an empty g-string)?

Lea loves to sit back and keep silent when she has an opportunity to defend someone, unless it's in her selfish interest. For example at the reunion when she could have defended Lisa. Also, she agreed to put the past behind her and move forward with Adriana then complained all the time in Vegas that Adriana is "trying so hard to get in everyone's good graces." or whatever she said! She was just bitter that everyone was moving on and enjoying themselves and getting along with Adriana. She clearly did not mean what she said and still held onto some animosity during the trip. She said very underhanded, veiled insults and that episode made me dislike her.

Lea - for you to sit there in all your diamonds while Joanna attacked Lisa - and you were mute - You attacked Adriana for not defending you  and you sat there mute and let Lisa be attacked .  You are a horrible person.

Lea, you have a personality larger than life and a very good hearted person. I'm glad you stood your ground with Adriana when she tried to make you feel guilty for not resuming your friendship since she apologized. Despite her backstabbing, manipulative and lying ways, she thinks all will be forgotten. It doesn't appear that she even gets it or is accountable for her behavior. Just because it was in her mind she was not married and a single mother doesn't mean it is true. It just shows how psychopathic she truly is. You have nothing to gain with her friendship and she has everything to gain with yours. I would be very careful of the friendships of your sons, somehow Adriana always seems to take advantage and use it as leverage  one way or another. Perhaps it may be best to keep a distance with your interactions. I certainly would never trust anything she does or says ever again.

Lea, you had me laughing all the way through this episode.  I relate to you more then any of the other girls and I feel like I know what you are thinking half the time.. Love you!

Lea, what do you do with cancer....you cut it out!  Adriana is just like cancer.

Like you said, she is a con artist.  Watch your back with her, she is not to be trusted.

Lea, what do you do to cancer?  You cut it out - stay far far away from Adriana - seriously she is not well balanced.

Like you said, "she is a con artist" so watch your back.  She is capable of anything.

Lea, you are the star of the show. Without you the program would flame-out and die. We need intelligent and successful role models in our live and you are exactly that! We love you and keep keeping it real.

Lea you are 100% right. No one but a fool would engage Adriana after the stunts she tried to pull. You too can be cordial and respectful in public but in private there is no relationship.The things Adriana did and said were distasteful and just ugly. But then again, someone who pretends to not be married for five years, this shouldn't be a surprise.

Lea, why were you picking on Lisa and egging on drama on the bus? Lisa has been supportive of you this entire season. I think you were doing this to deflect drama off of you.

Best thing Lea ever did was dump Adrianna as a friend.  It amazes me that some think Lea should just let Adrianna, Marysol, Alexia and Ana throw digs and hateful comments her way and then let them roll off her back and be the bigger person.

Lea I have vacillated for 3 seasons now.  From the very beginning I have found your "humor" at another "friends" expense to be distasteful and far from classy.  It is simply your way of getting a dig in and your little annoying cackle is your passive aggressive way of passing the insult off as a joke.

 

It seems to me that most of these women fear you more than they care about you and that to me is somewhat telling.  I find the people you surround yourself with rather shady...Joe Francis, that Elaine/James person, Thomas Kramer,  Frankie that uploaded the video making fun of mama Elsa in Your LA home.  

 

As for Adrianna, agreed she may be a hot mess and this married/not married story is deceitful....but you have to dedicate your whole blog again to your list of grievances against her.... this is yesterday's news.  What I saw last episode is a woman who didn't fit the character you tried to portray earlier in the season and even an epi or two ago...that woman who shed apparent crocodile tears because she was so hurt from being deceived.  I believe it is clear you were playing to the audience now with this hurt angle.  Shedding tears one moment and weeks later you are cold and callous telling this woman her core is evil. C'mon, evil? Evil to you is someone who keeps a marriage secret to the man they are in a relationship with?  Okay, well...evil to me is some of the people your husband has defended...look there for an example of an evil core.  Criminals, rapists...  No, instead that is where you find your dinner guests.  No, your cold and callousness here reveals to me a bitterness which I am not sure we will get to the root of.  I think you need to start to examine your core before you begin to dissect the other ladies frankly.  Your self righteousness is wearing thin.

I am not team Lea or team Adriana, but we all I think have been at a place were we do forgive a person as Lea did- but we just dont want them in our lives like they once were due to whatever reason. It doesnt make Lea a bad person for not wanting the friendship to be like it was, nor Adriana a bad person for wanting the friendship back like it once was or at least heading that way-it just is what it is sometimes in life.

 

 I think we all at one time or another have been in Adriana's place too where we want a relationshp restored and we are sorry and do all we can but that person does not want the same as we want. They will forgive us but it is not the same and nothing you can do but keep living your life. I hope it can be repaired in time since they were real friends once and not just friends for the show-but everyone reacts differently to feelings of betrayal, hurt, anger, etc. and some can just hug it out and all is the same and others can forgive but it will never be the same. People are all just so different- again it doesnt make either one wrong it just is different personalities in life. It is sad though that a real friendship may have truly ended.

There is a lot of spite and hate in this blog. What Lea showed Adrianna was not kindness, but treated her like a charity case. Now she spent her blog recounting what she did. This is poor taste. Where I come from, when you show kindness to a person, you just do it and move on. No need to itemize all of the things you have done because when it comes from the heart, no need to broadcast it. Unfortunately, in Lea's world, it matters that everyone is a witness to or have knowledge of her "kindness". Or she reminds people about what she has done for them. No matter what Adrianna did, Lea is now hurting Adrianna's son, by this blog. Lea you should have taken the high road. Get over it!

To those of you that commented Lea said TO MOVE ON.  Lea was saying just that.  Not let's be friends and forget.  I got it and you should have to  TOO MUCH WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE TO GO BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS..

Lea, this was an outstanding blog entry.  Very well written, very well said.  I was pleased to see you put "pen to paper" so to speak and let us know that you have, in fact, remembered all of these things we have seen go on.  Your decision is a good one.  I was very disappointed in your behavior toward Lisa on the bus.  This person was a true friend to you when others turned their backs on you.  You not only did exactly what Adriana did to you (remain silent while Joanna ripped her apart and humiliated her in front of the ladies and the cameras), but you even had a few choice quips of your own.  I found that to be very disappointing at a time when I had come to really become a fan of yours and a champion for how you were wronged.  I hope you made this right with her.  And, I hope you never do it to her again.

Lea I really enjoy watching you and seeing how successful you are! So sorry that people are jealous of you, I think some of the ladies on the show enjoying getting on your blog.  I know you are a busy woman, wishing you much success!!

Lea, you were gracious even when Adriana was yelling at you.  I think you did the right thing.  Be cordial, but NEVER trust her.  I think you were right about her core being evil.

Lea, you do pick on people and think its funny while you laugh in their face. You also come across as someone who thinks they are better then others...with that said, I do agree with you on your "bad" choice of friends, Adrianna just being one of them. It seems you surround yourself with brown nosing suck ups. Last season was the worst for you because of the two friends you introduced to us viewers who act like nutcases. Adrianna is just another of these so called friend of yours.


I really want to like you, because there is a lot to like...but the snarky put down jokes to others really need to stop, as well as this endless circle of morally corrupt friends who kiss your behind. Your friends are people who you can look at, and up to in times of need, and should be equal with what they bring to the table including reputation. Adrianna is not this person!

 

Thankfully you have a decency inside which makes us viewers want to like you! I actually grew to like you this season. For whatever that is worth.

I do hope you reflect, you have a lot to offer and should only be with like minded people who you can actually respect!

Lea,

 

I couldn't agree more with everything you said here on the blog and on the show. You have to stand for something or you will fall for everything. I think it has been so hurtful the way Adrianna has treated you this season. You were genuinely hurt and betrayed after being such a true friend for so many years! Good for you for always taking the high road and staying true to yourself. You are such an inspiration, looking forward to watching the reunion and all your many other successes in the future!

 @gini I am not against Lea at all but this is my point.  Do not be nice to someone's face and tear up and say you are willing to move on if truly you are harboring resentment and never want to see that person again.  It's real easy to say mean stuff to and/or about someone in an interview or a blog when they are not face to face.  I don't believe Adrianna is worthy of Lea's friendship.  I just wish Lea hadn't come across so cold hearted in her interview.  When I don't want to have someone in my life I just don't.  But I also do not say or do anything that would be hurtful to that person.  It just isn't okay.  It's all about the Golden Rule for me and what I expect from anyone I associate with.

Lea you think you are so good, Well you are a very mean person I would not want a friend like you. You can never say I was wrong. You only want the kind of friends that kiss your butt. I hope they take you off the show because you make me sick.

Hope you don't listen to the haters!  Sure it's Fakedrianna in disguise!  You always handle yourself very well and seem like a selfless woman.  People are surely jealous of your success and wealth.  Being envious is surely not classy.  Too sad for them.  Can't wait to see the reunion!!  Kudos to you for the unsavory castmates you had to be around, you held your head high!!

RHOM really jumped the shark with the revelation that Adriana had been married for the past 5 years.  I cannot believe that a self-proclaimed "intelligent" woman considers that because she did not have a lavish wedding she was not married.   One does not forget that they are legally married.  It is clear she used this to get on the show with her "storyline" being "the struggling single mother".  Any "friend" that chose to hide a fact like this and carry on a charade is no friend.

shopaholicinidaho

I understand that you are not interested in a close friendship with someone that you feel used you and was dishonest, however, that comment you made during your interview about never seing Adrianna again was mean girlish and sounded like something a 15 year old would say.  Very mean.  And shoud we all think you are a liar because you told Adrianna you woud move on when you had no intention of doing so?  None of it was classy.

You know I initially misjudged you and thought you were being overly mean to Adriana, but after reading your blog, it sure makes a lot of sense.  I would probably not want to have anything to do with a person like that either.  Stay strong Lea!

Lea, you just wrote the best Bravo blog ever. I really appreciate your honesty and no-nonsense attitude. It's really refreshing among the Housewives franchise. I wish you the very best with your business venture because you deserve good things... it's called karma.

You know you are also showing your true core.  Your family even knows that the only way you play nice is if you agree or follow what you say.  If we were to listen to your story you took this poor sleeping in the street lady with a little boy and gave her a home and gave her money.  You didn't really know her so you apparently you treated her as a charity case and then took her under your wing and years later when she is planning her wedding you realize that she really wasn't living in the street and she was married to a rich man and taking money from you because?  I mean come on there is so many holes in this charity story it's making me sick.  It doesn't matter what Adriana did but it does matter what you did because you were supposed to be her friend and you've done nothing but tried to get her banished from the show.  Money can't buy you all the people.

 @Blink I think Adrianna had some reflecting to do, so it was good to dump her as a friend for a period of time. However, these two are like sisters and have a history so they should make up. I think Alexia, Marysol, and Ana were jealous of Lea and Adriannas relationship. They didn't want to see these two reconnect. I'm happy they did reconnect and Adrianna seems like she has changed for the better in some ways.

 I think you misunderstood what Lea was really saying.  I got it as most people did.  Angriana is  no good I am willing to bet the true Angriana comes out at the reunion.  SHE TALKRD TRASH ALL SEASON AND AT THE END TRIED TO SUCK UP.  LEA IS TO SMART TO FALL FOR THAT.

 I FORGOT the secret was Adriana WAS SUPPOSED TO BE LEA'S FRIEND and she lied to her for 5 yrs for personal gain.  Lea do not let her back in.  Smart move.

 @SecretSquirrel

 I never understand viewers like you who twist or read into a storyline that you

clearly don't know the whole story on just because you want to support a known

Liar like Adrianna.  Lea's family said plain and simple, that Lea is the kindest person

anyone could know and she sends money home to support the kids going to school

and it comes from the kindness of her heart.  There is no holes in the story because

even Adrianna admitted that Lea has bought Art from her gallery so she could get a

good commission to live on, that is not treating anyone like a charity case, that is

encouraging a persons career and helping them to become self sufficient.  Lea gave

Adrianna the wealthy connections to become respected and successful just like

herself but Adrianna didn't have enough education or sophistication to pull it off.

Adrianna Lied about her education, lied about how many times she's been married,

lied about how her first marriage really ended and lied about being a single struggling

Mom.....Oh and not to mention her tawdry past as Maid on Fisher Island.

What show are you watching? How was Lea trying to get Adrianna kicked off

the show? Adrianna is a violent Liar her actions is getting her booted off the show

hopefully.   I hope you do more research on Adrianna before you support that hot mess.

 Yes, using all caps AnnaMan is really convincing.........when you are 12 yrs old.

 

Try putting together a cohesive argument or sentence, then you may be taken seriously.  The only thing proven is that you have a caps lock and you don't know when it is appropriate to use it.  Run along, the adults are trying to have a discussion here.
