An Open Letter to Hialeah: How to Defend Yourself Against Real Housewives

Alexia Echebarria
Hey Hialeah,

We know you're proud. We get it. And you have every right to be, but here's an idea: If you're going to defend yourself against a classless comment made by a cast member on The Real Housewives of Miami, maybe you should do it with class.

This morning, on the Paul & Young Ron Show, the residents of Hialeah called in to defend themselves against RHWOM Alexia Echevarria's silly comment on last Tuesday night's episode. She called the residents of the working-class city "lower people." She also said (in a nice way) that these inferior wastes of flesh dreamed of being like her and her fancy socialite friends who are splashed all over the glossy pages of her magazine, Venue -- a publication that most Miamians have never heard of.

The callers' comments made on this morning's Paul & Young Ron Show included a Colombian resident of Hialeah being straight-up 305 by talking trash about Cubans (Echevarria is Cuban), and another caller, born and raised in Hialeah, called Echevarria -- while at a loss on how to string together a sentence properly -- "a retard." 

Call us crazy, but isn't that kind of like the retard calling the retard black? Just a thought... Speaking of thoughts, our readers had a few on Echevarria's words that they left in comments on our recap yesterday. And theirs are a tad more articulate (we like to believe it's our back pages that attract this caliber of thought).

Here are a few highlights:

Alexia's husband is from Hialeah, and owes a lot to the City of HIaleah. He ran the Hialeah Chamber of Commerce for years, was a City councilman and ran for Mayor. According to the Miami Herlad Alexia gave birth to one of her sons in Palmetto hosiptal in Hialeah. Her bleach blonde hair must have affected her memory -- Lilyluv

Who's Alexa? Maybe her Plastic Surgeon is from Hialeah, thats why she's upset....Hell i would be too if I looked like her! -- Loufquintero

Women that skinny are just ignored in Hialeah. Maybe that's her problem. -- Guest

I have two words for Alexia: PEDRO. ROSELLO. Didn't she birth her 'male model' son "Pete" in Palmetto? Ay mija, don't play yourself! I'm from Hialeah, very proud of this and for one will tell you that I am ten times a more cultured individual than Alexia - I am educated and refined and have more tact in my pinky than she does in her entire body.

The "lower class" want to look like her? Sure, if we want to look like we just dyed our hair with the $6.99 Loreal Blonde that she's sporting.

Por favor, she can't even speak English properly.
-- ANGIE ARIAS (From HIA)

And here's a gem (and a fantastic idea) from Twitter:

@MiamiNewTimes @CultistMiami someone should graphically dress her up chongalicious (chancleta and hoops included ) make her walk la 49 :-) -- @sergiofagundo

Come on gang... the cameras were on for the first time in an office situation; she probably wanted to impress blew it. It's not like she has complete command of the English language. She probably meant "LOWER INCOME" - and, sadly, despite some very nice areas, Hialeah is not considered a "higher income" area. The multimillion dollar homes are in other areas of South Florida. She can not possibly be so stupid (she's a bleached blonde).

Remember, there is a lot of editing going on.

Hialeah should forgive her - actually... perhaps someone will take this as an opportunity of to use her to garner some attention to showcasing Hialeah.

So I didn't watch Houswives of Miami this week cause honestly it doesn't interest me.. but I read that Miss I think I'm a "Cuban Barbie" made a real nasty comment towards Hialeah... Well, I did a little research on you.... Miss "Cuban Barbie" ..Not only did you teach at a not so ritzy school where you made a normal teachers salary & yet you want to talk down to Hialeah?You weren't born into money sweetie & you didn't earn it, you married it! Oh, & by the way Mr. Herman Echevarria, your husband was not only City of Hialeah Council President but he was former Chairman of the Hialeah Chamber of Commerce .. K...nowing Hialeah politians that explains plenty about how he made most his money...She just annoyed me the 1st time they aired the show saying that in her culture is was normal to have drinks on special occasions with you teenage kids... Shit, my mom would of beat my ass! I don't know what cuban culture she's from... & Miss "Cuban Barbie" guess what if my husband owned "Venue" I'd be Cheif Editor as well ! Bottom line everything you have and claim to do ... Well "Barbie" it's Fake just like you!!See More

I am not cuban and have lived in Hialeah all my life. It seems to me that Mrs. Echebarria has more plastic pride than she does Cuban pride. Most people who live outside of Hialeah began their lives in Hialeah and she should have respected that fact especially for her husband. Although it can not be argued that perhaps there may be a few Hialeahs that would want to be like her, rest assure it would be only a few and possibly counted on one hand. Enough said because I no longer wish to participate in her 15 minutes of fame.

Why do we care? by acknowledging her comments we are giving her what she needs, attention and media coverage... screw and ignore her

Let me start by saying that im cuban, and as a cuban i can't believe this cuban lady is putting down her own people because they happen to live in Hialeah? has she forgotten we all came in the same boat or airplane in my case but we all came for the same reason! and cubans are all over Miami, NOBODY wants to be you! I assure you people in Hialeah have a better life than you and they don't marry for money!

edited or not, she called us (people of Hialeah) "lower".. pero! if having so much money makes you an ugly person inside and out, i would rather stay in working class Hialeah, where we have dignity and respect for one another. i do have to admit that i wanted to hit her.. then i realized THAT would make me lower... plus, hitting her might make her face look more like that of a human. "cuban barbie?" yea sssuuuuuurrreee! haha!

she didn't marry for money.. she married to be Herman's mustache, because everyone knows he's as a gay as a two dollar bill! That's the truth and people in Hialeah and other parts of this county would have much more respect for him, if he'd walked or pranced out of the closet instead of trying to pull wool over their eyes. Her past isn't so glamorous and frankly neither is her present, I'd hate to have a crystal ball to look into her future, because I don't think she's going very far after this series is over.
