After Lisa shared the photo three days ago, commenters immediately went after the Bravo alum for the seemingly tone-deaf post that highlighted her privilege without using it to help those in need. Her former Housewives co-star Joanna Krupa even took aim at Lisa too, tweeting: “All those A holes posting and showing off w their private jets in Miami, why don’t u offer help families and animals that can’t get out? Otherwise stop posting and showing off when people and animals are being left behind during this catastrophic hurricane. Idiots!”
On Monday, Lisa updated the caption of the Instagram post to explain that she isn’t sorry for the photo and that the “ignorant people leaving nasty comments” don’t know the full story.
“Although it’s none of your damn business we were not the only ones in this plane,” Lisa wrote. “Every seat was occupied and my son had to sit in my lap. EVERYONE IS POSTING ON SM about how they escaped! This happens to be mine and I don’t need to apologize or hide to ANYONE ABOUT HOW WE DO SO.”
Lisa went on to address the accusations that she had abandoned some of her friends in her family’s Miami home, saying that she had merely offered them to stay at her house instead of theirs because it would be safer.
“Anyone with nasty comments needs to back off get off my page and worry about yourself and how you can help instead [of] wasting your energy on attacking me,” the reality star concluded.
Between this and the “smelly p—-” lawsuit, it’s clear that nothing — not even cancellation — can stop the Real Housewives of Miami truly from delivering the drama.
UPDATE: to all of these ignorant people leaving nasty comments… although it’s none of your damn business we were not the only ones in this plane. Every seat was occupied and my son had to sit in my lap. EVERYONE IS POSTING ON SM about how they escaped! This happens to be mine and I don’t need to apologize or hide to ANYONE ABOUT HOW WE DO SO. We also did not have paper work for our dogs to fly commercial as every vet was closed and every flight was booked and there is no way in hell we would leave them behind. Fortunately we were able to get a plane to take them with us. Anyone with nasty comments needs to back off get off my page and worry about yourself and how you can help instead if wasting your energy on attacking me. And to the other commenters about me “abandoning” my friends in my house 🙄🙄🙄🙄 they weren’t any guests that happened to just be there already, they are friends who just didn’t have a proper safe place to stay who live in Miami and I figured mine would be safer for them so I offered for them to come on over! So take your comments and shove them up your 🍑🍑🍑 🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼🙅🏼 THANK YOU to all of my family and friends who have reached out to help, offer a place to stay, offer help to get out of Miami or just checked on us! And I’m sorry if I haven’t gotten back to all of you! But I will🙏🏼🙏🏼We weren’t originally going to leave partly because of the dogs and a few other things….and waited until the last minute when we realized that this thing wasn’t slowing down which definitely made it difficult to get out. I’m praying for everyone who already has been devastated by this hurricane and pray that Somehow by a miracle Florida is not hit so hard. We did not want to risk it with our little angel Logan. And YES we let some friends stay at our home because it’s a little safer then theirs! They will be fine!!! Material things can be replaced lives cannot 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 #staysafe
