Lea Black Talks Her Gala, Marriage & Son!

Lea-Black1

Lea Black is taking to her Bravo Blog to tell viewers about her Gala, her marriage, and her son after Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Miami. She shares information about her son, reveals how she met her husband, and shares a lot of information about her infamous gala, something viewers are very interested in after watching the Reunion!

It’s been an interesting season and I thank you, really thank you, for watching and for your support. In the spirit of unanswered questions, here we go.

My 11-year-old son is an accomplished pianist (I wish his recital was included in the show). He’s studying three languages and is also fluent in Spanish. He’s an honor roll student in the 6th grade and was awarded the citizenship of the year award five consecutive years while in elementary school. And did I mention he has a heart of gold, always offering up his college fund for anyone in need, or he is the first to donate money if a random person holds a sign up or a cup out? He loves “random acts of kindness” as he calls it.

My husband and I have been together, faithful, and happy for twenty years. And no, I didn’t meet him during a trial. I did watch him in a trial though and nine months later I met him personally. He has always been an advocate for the downtrodden, the underdog, second chances and good people that made bad choices. Even though we have a very good life and lifestyle, there are countless stories of people no one ever hears about that he has helped pro bono nd many people that owe their freedom to his hard work and belief in them. And many more souls that are still unfairly incarcerated that he works tirelessly for day and night, because he believes they deserve the best defense they can get.

I welcome aging — what’s the alternative? I always wonder why people find such glee in criticizing one’s age. I feel we are lucky every year we live a year longer. So I’ve filled my years working, trying to do the right thing, and enjoying my friends and family while working on charitable causes I believe in. I have a philosophy that I live by and I wrote a booklet about it that goes out with each Sudden Youth order; you can also read about it on my theworldofleablack.com website. It’s a philosophy that has served me well, that philosophy and the principles in the book Do You Quantum Think allow me to create and design my life, live in the moment, and enjoy the now. Life really is made up by “moments.”

The Blacks Annual Gala has been going on for 19 years. I even made a documentary film called The Fundraiser that was shown during the Cannes Film festival years back. Our website will tell you who we are, what we stand for, who we help, and why we do it. I hope you visit it (theblacksannualgala.com) and I hope it inspires you to get involved in something you can be passionate about. I promise your life will be richer for it.

I started my first company in the mid ’80s with a small loan from the bank and have owned, managed, and operated companies in the beauty business ever since, minus the few years RJ was very young. I’ve had showrooms and offices around the world and in the US, been on HSN, had various highly successful infomercials (Sudden Youth and others, even featuring Joan Collins in Baden-Baden, Germany years back) and created private label products for many well respected brands.

theworldofleablack.com showcases my current product lines and makes mention of my various product lines over the years. The thrust of my business has always been to empower women to be the best they can be and help reveal to them their self worth and encourage them to become financially independent and there are thousands of women (and men) worldwide that have benefited from those efforts, many of which I still hear from today.

So my life has always been an open book and I guess the show just added some pages to the story. I hope you enjoyed watching. I hope I didn’t disappoint and I hope I left you wanting more! LOL!

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    omg….she was a juror in the william kennedy smith rape trial and roy black was his attorney. THAT IS HOW THEY MET…i watched the trial WITH MY OWN EYES and saw her sitting there. it was a time when they still showed the jurors. it has been widely reported that this is how they met so i know i wasn’t seeing things.

    YOU ARE LYING LEA!!!

  • Zoriah

    Hmm. That sounded like her résumé. She didn’t write anything we couldn’t read on her website. Fail.

  • Lola

    I wouldn’t use your beauty products if you paid me. Quit spending so much time promoting yourself and do some good things in private. Pay it forward and try to undo some of the damage you have done to Marysol’s business.

  • Kelly

    She didn’t deny meeting him at a trial. It says in in the second paragraph, first sentence. She met him watching trial, the met him 9 months later. Jurors can’t speak or frantenzie with the lawyers.

  • Kelly

    She probably saw him, liked him, and met him officially after the trial. She would easily be dismissed if she was a juror and spoke with him or developed any relationship with the him prior. If she did however met him while she was a juror I guarantee you she will deny deny deny because she will than admit to tainting the juror process.

    People are finally seeing this witch for who she really is. Lea Black is one of the most calculating people we have ever watched. She said in a Bravo moment that if she had found Kennedy guilty Roy probably would not have married her. I saw that with my own eyes. She knew exactly what she was doing. Look up the People magazine interview and you will see the real trashy Lea Black. It is reported that her family didn’t even know about the wedding. They read about it in People magazine. Why is she so ashamed of her past in Texas?

    The KTLA video was a bust. Lea Black acted like the dimwit she really is. The very first question they asked her was about Roy Black, how they met and the Kennedy trial. That will follow her forever as it should. She let a rapist walk.

    It is being reported that her ticket sales are slow for her legend in her own mind gala. As they should be. We live in Miami and we will never give her another dime. She is a liar and is mean. She has lied about every aspect of her life. Ana opened Pandora’s box on the grand Black. Now we find out 4 failed marriages, a pyramid cosmetic company, she lied about writing one book and stole the name of this second book she claims to have written, she never went to college, her lover (THE MAN SHE DUMPED FOR ROY BLACK)Al Perkins died in her home in Coral Gables and according to his family she took his money and belongings and did not return them, didn’t even attend the memorial if there was one, in fact didn’t even come home when they found the body, at least her dog got a funeral. She dumped Perkins when she set her sites on Black in the Kennedy trial. She saw, she came and she conquered and sealed it with a child. She spends her time setting up bogus corporations to look like she is some big shot. She left her home town in shame because according to sources in Miami she was dating an African American football player, Beasley Reese, and during those days, 60’s it was not acceptable especially in Texas. She left home and never returned. We wouldn’t buy a toothpick from her. She claims to have co-founded Andre Walker hair products and that is a lie. Walker’s people say they had legal issues and she was only an investor and lost her money. She has copied his website, “The world of Andre Walker” and now she is the “World of Lea Black”, she is an ignorant fool who caught the eye of a rich lawyer, got an acquittal and married well. Hell no we will not support her skin care, hand bags, or any other piece of trash she is peddling. And for she and her husband coddling John Goodman, the man who murdered a young man with a drunk hit and run they, the Blacks have no moral compass. She needs to stop this gala, quit skimming off the top and go away. HER 15 MINUTES OF FAME ARE UP! OLD HAS BEEN. She was too stupid to know that all of this would catch up with her. Her poor son. After the reunion show I would never have put that child through another season. But she only cares about one thing and that is Lea Black. Which isn’t even her real first name. What a fake!
