For the entire third season of The Real Housewives of Miami, Lea Black has been targeted by mean girls Adriana de Moura, Marysol Patton and Ana Quincoces. During last night's episode, she was verbally attacked by Marysol, who accused her of not reaching out to her sick mother, Mama Elsa. Now Lea wants to make it clear that her accusations are nothing but lies.

"Wow! The amount of camouflaged and blatant hatred, venom, lies, bitterness and phoniness that spews out at me each week says more about anyone than I could ever say," Lea wrote on her Bravo blog. "Forgive them, they know not what they do."

Lea also said that Marysol exaggerated her relationship with Mama Elsa, although the two of them have always shared a special connection. Which is why she sent Elsa flowers and cards when she found out she was in the hospital.

"I never had any spiritual conversations or advice from Elsa other than season 1 when she sat at a dinner table and gave all the girls her opinion on each of us. And by the way, she said nice things about me," Lea clarified. "I have reached out to Elsa many times with cards, calls and flowers that can be verified by florists, and I sent an email to her daughter, who never replied back."


She then went on to defend her quick exit, saying that she was only planning on stopping by the party for a short time to begin with; she wasn't running away from Marysol because she was afraid of her.

"I was not scared of or running away from anyone at Alexia's birthday party. I went and dropped off a gift for her and Herman, said my hellos and was on my way," she wrote. "Then along came confrontation. Once again, I do not find it appropriate to have a confrontation in front of bystanders at a birthday party. Especially a contrived and unnecessary one. Alexia again prefers to gain points with the hate club rather than find out what is going on or give me the benefit of the doubt. And others will do anything for attention."

Marysol, however, does still maintain that Lea, in fact, did not reach out to her mother.

"Lea knows the truth and that will weigh on her conscience, not mine. I don't need to convince anyone of the truth," Marysol wrote on her blog. "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."
