Having seen more than my share of reality TV over the years, including countless seasons of Real Housewives, I’m pretty familiar with people deluding themselves in front of the camera. That said, after watching The Real Housewives of Miami last night, I think I’m back to square one as far as being surprised by the extents people will go to to lie to themselves. The episodes have been airing at odd times, but the last two were set at Lisa Hochstein‘s Lingerie Party, where literally everyone was fighting with each other except for Ana Quincoces and Marysol Patton. Joanna Krupa was fighting with Lea’s guest Joe Francis, of Girls Gone Wild, who said he slept with Joanna and her sister, Marta. Lisa was fighting with Lea Black‘s guest James and Karent Sierra‘s guest Beau, who had words with each other resulting in thrown champagne and then thrown Beau…into the pool, splashing the DJ booth and almost ruining the party. And of course Adriana De Moura-Sidi has her ongoing bone that she likes to pick with Karent Sierra. Which is the main fight that we’re gonna talk about.
Adriana ‘pulled Karent aside’ in the kitchen, in front of everyone, to continue their conversation from whenever the hell, and yell at Karent for supposedly stealing the spotlight. Joanna saw the confrontation taking place and came over to ask what was going on (which, coincidentally, is exactly what Alexia Echevarria did when she saw Adriana and Karent talking at her party), and Adriana was having none of it and told Joanna to leave. Except she said it rudely and Joanna was Krupa-wasted so she started yelling back and the confrontation became between the two of them. So when Adriana tried to walk away from the conversation, Joanna followed her screaming profanities down the hall, at which point ADRIANA TURNED AND PUNCHED HER IN THE FACE.
That is what happened. Through the magic of cameras, we were all there. We saw what happened. Joanna didn’t reach out and pull her by the hair, or scratch her arm. Adriana turned around and hit her, which she’s conveniently forgetting in every single version she’s shared with people. In last night’s episode she told Alexia and Lea that Joanna attacked her, and so far hasn’t said the word ‘punched’. She makes it sound like Joanna pulled her around so hard by her hair that her arm just kind of whacked her in the face. Accidentally, I’m sure. She has also proceeded to call Joanna creative names like “super whore” and “super hooker” instead of supermodel. Behind er back, of course, even though she’s totally against that. She’s extremely intelligent.
Listen I’m not saying that Joanna didn’t deserve it. She turns into a raving blond lunatic when she drinks, as evidenced by her fiance Romain’s decision to leave without her as the fight was breaking out. But she’s at least owning her part of it. She admits she was drunk enough not to remember parts of the night, but knows she didn’t start the physical violence. Adriana, on the other hand, seems pretty dead-set on writing her way out of the whole interaction. Maybe by next week she’ll be convinced she wasn’t even there.
