Lea speaks to Celebuzz and admits that she referred about 10 names to RHOM producers but she did not want to be on the show. She then agreed to have them film a scene at her house and once they saw her in action, they convinced her to join the show.
“The night before [taping began] I basically said, ‘I’m not going to do the show.’ I chickened out,” reveals Lea. Producers then let her know, “Well, if you don’t do the show, another one of the girls isn’t going to do it because she doesn’t have any connection to any other girl on the show.”
Lea continues, “That was one of the main reasons [I agreed] to do Real Housewives, because she really needed it.” She then took the opportunity as a platform to promote her charity and skin care line!
We know Adriana was Lea’s friend since season one. Do you think Lea is taking a dig at Adriana yet again by bringing up how she helped her out. First it was giving her money, now she is taking credit for keeping her on RHOM!
