You Can’t Call Karent Sierra A Media Whore When You’re All On A Reality Show Together

Nobody’s cheating on anybody yet on The Real Housewives of Miami, so I have to go back to the same thing I talked about last week — Karent Sierra. Last week I was wondering if she was really all that annoying, or if the other ladies are just catty bitches, and my thesis this week is surprisingly similar. They can’t seem to get off this girl’s back for taking pictures with celebrities and making a spectacle of herself in public. They seem to think that this self-proclaimed ‘dentist to the stars’ is a social climber and an ‘eager beaver’, as Ana Quincoces has termed her. I can admit that those things are all kind of annoying, but hey ladies — where do you get off calling this girl a media whore when you yourselves are all on a reality show?

Sure, she likes getting her picture taken with celebrities — on last night’s episode we saw her with Sofia Vergara and Pitbull. But think about it…for one thing, her business depends on her bringing in high-profile clients, and a great way to get your name out there is through self-promotion. Is it annoying? Absolutely! But I get to call her out on it, not you, ladies, because you’re all doing the same thing, you’re just less blatant about it. When Adriana de Moura-Sidi called her out on taking that picture with the reclusive kinetic artist, Karent admitted herself that she wanted a picture with him because he’s famous. She’s calling herself out on her own behavior, which is way more than I can say for the other Housewives.

Because think about it — what are they doing on the show? It’s not like it’s a competition, with challenges and prize money at the end. It’s purely a reality show. We follow these women around for the minutiae of their lives — Joanna learning how to cook, Lisa bathing her dogs, Lea planning a charity event — and just wait for the drama that inevitably occurs. These women all auditioned for this show. They want the visibility and free publicity that comes with doing a reality show. It probably doesn’t help their personal lives, but it certainly helps their businesses, their brands, and their bank accounts, as they can leave the show with endorsement deals and book contracts.

Bottom line — she may be annoying, but Karent is doing exactly what the other Housewives are doing. She’s just better at it.
