Let the drama begin! Bravo’s Real Housewives of Miami is just now starting to give a little of the “sizzle” we were all promised. After last week’s gala-gate, Lea Black has been very vocal about her disgust with castmate Cristy Rice. Black even went as far as to call into Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live to call Rice out for crashing her fundraiser. And that’s not all! See what else Black had to say about Cristy Rice and her friends!
One thing is clear after last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Miami, where Cristy Rice and two of her friends conveniently came late to Lea’s charity event– without paying for their tickets: You don’t mess with Lea Black!
The Miami Housewife not only invoiced Black for the three tickets (which came to $1,500), she also called in to Watch What Happens Live the night that Cristy was on the show to tell everyone that Rice still owes her for one of the tickets, demanded that she stop publicly trashing the event, and then hung up before Cristy could even respond!
Lea also slams Cristy Rice in her blog.
“There are parties where it may be appropriate for single girls to spend hours getting all dolled up, show up fashionably late (easier to crash a party after registration), mingle throughout, then publicly comment ‘people should pay me (and my two friends!) to show up,’” Black writes. “However, a charity gala, where kids get the money from the ticket sales, is simply not on of those parties.
“When a dress or shoes cost many times more than the ticket price to enter, maybe it’s time to check the etiquette books and re-assess your priorities and values,” says Black.
Cristy isn’t the only one Lea complained about in her blog, she also made a point to ask her long time friend and cast mate, Adriana De Moura, to speak to the volunteers of the gala and let them know that she didn’t mean to imply that she contributed more than they did when she told cameras that she organized the entire event with Lea. Apparently, “organize this whole event” really means “donated a few paintings and came to a few meetings.”
Sounds like Lea does not mess around when it comes to her charity!
What do you think… Did Cristy Rice and her friends crash Lea Black’s charity gala?
