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