During the first part of the season one’s reunion Caroline claimed designs for Lesa’s Mina Roe maternity brand were stolen from one of her friend’s clothing line.

She also made wild accusations that Lesa was an escort when she lived in Miami.

When asked how where exactly her relationship stands now with Caroline, Lesa said it is ‘exactly where we left it’.

‘We do not talk. I mean how could you, right? I work so hard to be where I am, I work so hard on my brand. Everything she said was a lie and for me as a friend, I would never attack someone else’s business with lies,’ she said.

‘It was very hurtful, but the best revenge is success. Mina Roe is going to possibly be in some of the biggest department stores in the US snd we are growing and expanding.’

When asked why Caroline keeps clashing with most of the housewives of the show: Lesa added: Are you surprised? I do think she is somewhat of a bully, but I do hope she gets the help that she needs and she comes back and we have fun. 

‘Because when you are around girlfriends you don’t want to have toxic energy, you kind of want to be around supportive and fun.’

Lesa was left furious during part one and two of the reunion episodes when socialite and influencer Carolina claimed that Lesa had copied the designs of an unnamed friend for her successful line of modern maternity wear.

She produced a handmade Mean Girls-style book to host Andy Cohen, titled ‘The Book of Lies by Lesa Milan’, which had a photo of Lesa on the front along with a Pinocchio-style nose superimposed on her face.

‘Well, I googled maternity wear and she is certainly not listed and her designs are designed by my friend. I got a text message from my friend saying three of the designs are hers,’ Caroline claimed, when Andy asked her what she thought of Lesa’s brand.

She went on to say that her friend was threatening to go to Diet Prada, an Instagram account and fashion watchdog group that calls out copycat designs. 

Lesa hit back and insisted that ninety percent of Mina Roe’s designs were hers and the other 10 percent were ‘outside creative for which we have a license for all of those pieces’.

‘Let me know when you can run a successful business, I can teach you. I don’t steal designs,’ she fired back at Caroline.

‘I don’t care to know you. You are the wicked witch of the Middle East,’ she added.

Caroline hit back and claimed that over the course of the season Lesa had attacked her younger husband Sergio and called him gay, said her followers were fake and she didn’t have a business.

She then went on to make accusations that when Lesa lived in Miami, she worked as an escort.

Shaking her head, Lesa said: ‘You are obsessed with me. It is dangerous. You are disgusting. You wished you looked like me.’
