Mother, wife, philanthropist, writer, TV personality, political fundraiser, and tycoon of business.
She is a native of Texas who immigrated to Miami in the late 1980s, bringing with her an uninhibited enthusiasm and compassion, energy and concentration, commercially savvy, and civic duty that have all combined to leave an enduring impression on Miami. She thinks that women can do everything they set their minds to and are passionate about because she is the head of a household, a company, and a community leader. Lea is a significant character on the current season of "Real Housewives of Miami," and she has made multiple appearances on CNN, HLN, EXTRA, KTLA, NBC6 Miami, and other popular national news and entertainment programmes. She writes a blog for the Huffington Post as well.
Outspoken and unyielding in her convictions, Lea splits her time between pursuing her worldwide business goals with her health, beauty, accessory, and jewellery initiatives and completing her humanitarian missions focused on children and teenagers.
Lea Black In An Exclusive Interview With OTS Magazine UK.

Lea what was life like growing up and what was your Biggest Motivation as a young woman?
I grew up in a small town – very country. I was motivated to see what life in the big city would be like.
You wrote a bestseller- “Red Carpets & White Lies." What inspired you to write this book and would you be publishing any more books in the near future?
I have always written for magazines. I loved just being able to create something from nothing. Also, I had a lot of Miami personalities to work from in creating composites of interesting, complex, crazy, fascinating characters. I am considering the next book.
You host one of the most successful charities in Miami once a year "Blacks Annual Gala" with lots of glamour and A-listers; I have to say you are amazing! How did you grow from starting your charity in 1994 in your "Backyard" to where it is today? What was your biggest Motivation?
Watching my husband's clients, children and families suffer because of circumstances or bad choices motivated me. I wanted to try to help them at an early age to prevent them from a life of crime.
What inspired you to create your Business Empire "LeaBlack.com"?
I have always worked and been driven. Always had a lot of people I wanted to do things for, and money, when used properly can help a lot of people

In the world today, sadly I have noticed women are always very negative towards other females chasing their dreams instead of showing support they derive pleasure in dragging the other woman down and derailing her from her success, what advice would you give to a woman in this situation to help her stay focused on her dreams?
If it doesn’t affect you - why ever think about it. Put your energy into your own projects. Always remember, the only person you compete with is yourself.
