Real Housewives of Miami Season Two Reunion by NoMoreDrama
Part One – Last Week
We start with seven of the housewives on the couch. On Andy’s left are Joanna, Lisa, Karent, and Lea at the end of the couch. On the other couch are Adriana, Marysol, and Ana. Lea is wearing 25 million dollar earrings.
First question: “How many of you have had work done” question. Lea admits to a neck lift 10 years ago, but claims she’s done nothing to her face between seasons. Joanna – breasts. Lisa – breasts and botox.
Lisa’s question: How do you feel being portrayed as a Fembot? She thinks it’s cute.
Marysol’s question: What procedures has your mom had done? Marysol answers that she remembers an eyelid lift in the 80s and it went wrong. Elsa had hematomas for three years. She doesn’t remember a face lift. Ana says it looks like Elsa did injectables with silicone (before they knew how to do them.) and they are pulling on her skin. Adriana says that back then things were experimental. Lisa is asked – why can’t Lenny fix it? Lisa says Lenny will need to answer that. She asks how old Elsa is and Marysol cracks up and says she’d never answer that.
Next topic – Relationship between Joanna and Romain: They recap the drama and then Joanna talks a little about how he didn’t cheat and they love each other to death. Adriana jumps in and says it is all a publicity stunt. Joanna says she’s f**king jealous because Joanna’s in the press. Adriana says she’s in the press because she shows her breasts. Joanna says she’s a psycho. They talk over each other. Karent says Joanna is the famous one and Adriana says her nose is brown. Joanna says she and Romain are having lots of sex now, but that he doesn’t need much sex. I’m sure he’s happy she said that on national TV. Adriana thinks he’s got action on the side.
Romain’s tweets: “Sorry everyone if can’t tweet much, busy week for us at
@myntloungeusa Promise to get back to everyone tomorrow”
“That being said, I love
@joannakrupa with all my heart and I am lucky to have found the most kind, sincere, beautiful and generous person”
Volatile and Nasty Behavior: Adriana and Joanna talk about each other’s awful behavior. Lisa says she was raised the same way but isn’t as volatile as them. Joanna and Adrianna both want her to pick sides. Lea starts crying about having to pick sides and that she tries to tell each of them when they’ve crossed the line. She tells Adriana she’s beautiful on the outside, but not on the inside. Adriana’s face falls. Ouch.
Karent’s relationship with Rodolfo: Karent talks about her relationship but I’m not that interested. Ana says that Rodolfo wants to be the Mexican Slade Smiley. Ana says she did text Rodolfo because he texted her. Karent is talking again. Lea jumps in and says that she didn’t realize how much the other girls belittled Karent. Ana says Lea’s full of crap and she trash talked Karent more than the others. Ana asks what flavor the Lea kool-aid is. Lea says that mean isn’t the new relevant. Lea starts screeching about Ana and Robert’s relationship and says something about a bank.
Lea’s nasty comments: The comments are characterized as digs with laughter. She agrees she does that and Lisa and Karent admit that they didn’t like her at the beginning. Ana mocks her. She’s so over Lea. She says she never knew of her before the show and says she’s full of herself, calling herself the Mayor of Miami, ugh. Lea jumps up and says Ana’s issue is that she doesn’t know her. Ana says “Sit down, I don’t want you to break a hip.”
Lea and Marysol’s relationship: Marysol is asked why she didn’t defend herself. Marysol says Lea never talked to her directly. Lea says she doesn’t remember it that way. Marysol says Lea has done nothing but bash Marysol’s business. Lea denies it. Marysol says Lea is doing what James accused Marysol of doing – interfering with her getting business. She explains that she has a business and employees – and this is real for her. Lea says she just wanted Marysol to acknowledge Lea’s issues and take responsibility for it. Ana says that Lea just wants Marysol to say Lea is right. Marysol finally confronts Lea on how much Lea has trashed her – about her marriage and about her business. Lea stands up again. Lea says she’s different than Marysol – she says whatever she want, whenever – on camera or off camera – whereas Marysol trashed James off camera. I will say that Marysol is being very strong and saying what she needs to say, but Lea walks all over her.
Ana says she’s bored and they should stop talking about it, and Marysol says it’s about her business she shouldn’t be bored. Ana says something about poor Marysol and Marysol says she doesn’t want to be pitied. Lea says that if it wasn’t for Ana, Lea and Marysol would be friends. Marysol says no way. Ana says that Lea is fake. Lea says Ana is nasty. Andy asks Adriana if she’s on Lea’s payroll because she’s so quiet. Adriana says that Lea has helped her so she’s loyal to Lea.
Now Ana says she wants to take some of Lea’s façade off. Lea yells it’s a character assassination. (Something else must have been said.) Ana explains her life and how she got where she is today (as a contrast to Lea who she said dated and married to get her position / status.) This is where Ana says she’s proud of her daughters and they are not socially awkward. (The comment has been mis-characterized as a dig against Lea’s son, but Ana has clarified that it was in defense of some comments Lea had made about her daughters.) Ana says the line about Lea getting help from men and being on her back. Lea jumps up again. I find it strange that she keeps jumping up.
Joanna and Drinking: Joanna says she doesn’t have a drinking problem. Adriana can’t stand it anymore and jumps in and says that even Joanna’s mom says she’s evil when she drinks and her sister says she has a problem. Joanna again denies she has a problem but says she needs to cut down on the drinking. Whatever. She’s got a major problem and everyone knows it.
Adriana’s temper (and she doesn’t have alcohol as an excuse). Poor Adriana – she’s trying to be classy at the reunion but she can’t hide from her nasty as they replay clips from the season. Marysol says that she finds Adriana funny. Joanna and Adriana are both called out on their racist comments. Adriana apologizes to the Polish people. Joanna says her apology means nothing to her. She repeats the “slums of Rio” comment and says the slums are too good for Adriana (and blames the comment on Romain). Adriana says Romain is racist.
Joanna’s tweet: “she can stick her apology u know where..i ll never be her friend unless pigs fly”
Smackdown. Joanna and Adriana bicker again. It’s growing old. Andy asks about the physical part of the altercation. Adriana tries to explain and Joanna keeps interrupting, saying “I am very nice.” Adriana claims that her accent is responsible for the Ho-Anna comment. We don’t learn anything else about the slap. Bad Andy. You need to call them on this stuff.
Continue with smackdown: Joanna is asked about her aggressive behavior at the “slap” party. Joanna says she had too much to drink and wanted to finish the fight.
Adriana’s nasty side: Adriana is asked about her comments that Joanna’s past will be revealed. Adriana says Joe Francis said Joanna was a hooker. She’s got a lawsuit against a website that claimed she was a hooker, but Joe Francis started the rumors. Jerk. They talk about the Girls Gone Wild video. Joanna says she did the intro and didn’t sleep with Joe Francis. She says she doesn’t sleep with criminals. Lea says he wasn’t a criminal then. Andy asks about her sister and Joe Francis and she refuses to comment. She’s already said a lot about this. You can read what she said on WWHL here.
Ana says Joe shouldn’t have even been at the party – he was brought as a prop. Lea says that’s another lie. Only Lea knows why she brought him but it certainly was a slap in the face to Joanna given their history. Joanna is asked if she regrets anything about the night. She regrets the drinking. Adriana regrets getting physical. Lisa says no one apologized to her – and both ladies apologize. Lea is silent even though her guests caused a lot of disturbance as well. Karent is asked if she feels responsible because the interview she gave started the whole fight between Adriana and Joanna. What about her being responsible for the Joe Francis – Joanna fight or trying to stir things up with Marysol and Joanna over Marysol’s wrap? Wrong question Andy. Karent says she’s been vindicated because the reporter has tweeted that Karent didn’t say those words. There is something very wrong with Karent but I can’t put my finger on what it is. I hope she isn’t back next year. Adriana apologizes to Karent. She apologizes to Joanna. And especially apologizes to Lisa. It’s pretty clear that Adriana is worried about how she’s coming across and Joanna couldn’t care less.
Joanna addresses the rumors: Joanna says she wasn’t a prostitute. A site stole her image and photoshopped it and made her look like an escort. She’s suing them. Adrana is nodding and not saying anything. Joanna says she was in a tickle footage video when she was 19 and regrets it. The only nudity she did was playboy. Lea jumps in and says people shouldn’t make false accusations – they should only say things if they are willing to be under oath. This is the woman who is buddies with Joe Francis. Ana calls her on it and that she knew that the false accusations would be made (against Joanna). Lea says it’s another false accusation. She stands up again and says it’s another gratuitous character assassination to be relevant and Ana is the most boring person on the show. She says Ana is dark and evil. Ana tells her to get a walker.
Alexia joins the others: Andy asks about Frankie. It’s been a year and three months since his car accident. They all tear up as she talks about his recovery. He’s 15 and he will transition back to school in January. Ana and Marysol were there for her the whole time. Andy asks about Peter (who hit a homeless man). Alexia says it is because he couldn’t deal with Frankie’s accident. She breaks down again. Andy asks about Alexia’s anger toward Karent for bringing up Frankie. Alexia goes from crying to attack mode with Karent in under a hot second. I don’t get why she hates her so much but it’s a little scary. She seems furious that Karent didn’t call enough or visit enough even though it doesn’t seem like they were friends. She admits that Karent did call a few times. Alexia is talking very quickly and says she didn’t say anything all season so this is her chance to talk. Huh? She said plenty all season.
Karent and the Carrier Pigeon title for passing on gossip: Karent explains that before the party at Lisa’s, Joanna got a text saying Joe Francis would be at the party. Joanna explained to the girls that 6 years ago she had been at a party where Joe was bragging about sleeping with her. Joanna says that she had never slept with him so fast forward to the party and Karent thought she overheard him bragging about it, so she went up to him and asked him if he had slept with Joanna. I’m sorry, but that doesn’t explain why she thought any of it was her business.
Karent’s relationship again: Alexia and Ana both know Rodolfo and Ana says that Rodolfo told her Karent had a little fatal attraction thing going on. Alexia talks really quickly and is really rude and looks furious. Lisa calls them all out on trying to humiliate Karent. They talk over her but she holds her own. Yes – clearly Alexia hates Karent. Ana takes on Lisa and belittles her for clapping. I’m a little frustrated because I really like Ana and don’t get why she’s behaving like this.
Rumors and False Allegations. First up is the rumor that Alexia’s husband is gay. Of course Alexia denies it and says Joanna is jealous and you have to consider the source. Joanna says she was just making a point about rumors and that she never said he was gay. Joanna clearly was just using it as an example and Alexia needs to get over herself. She’s like another person at this reunion and I can’t figure out what is going on. Ana says everyone in Miami thinks Rodolfo is gay. Andy perks up and asks if he’s seeing anybody. Heh. Ana says something about rumors of someone being a cross dresser. Who? Lea says that people need to stop throwing out gratuitous lies. Marysol says that when Lea said the joke about the green card everyone thought her relationship was fake. That’s as bad as a lie. Marysol doesn’t say much, but she’s making some good points. Lea snaps that it was a joke. She stands up again and says everyone said the relationship was fake because he left after filming ended. Marysol says the relationship ended because she sucked as a wife. Lea shakes her head and says she doubts that – that it takes two to make a relationship, but if Marysol would like to be the victim – go ahead.
Lisa’s History – Does she regret playboy? She does. Joanna says she’s proud of her two covers.
Alexia is excused. Mama Elsa comes out and is given the prime seat beside Andy.
Elsa flirts with Andy a little. Andy asks her about the energy in the room. Elsa says the energy is “false.” Nothing that was said is coming from the heart. She says Joanna is a very fresh young woman with no respect for anyone. “This lady took the liberty to call me a prostitute. I’m a very good friend but I’m a very bad enemy.” Joanna denies it – she actually called Elsa a devil. Elsa says that being called a devil is worse. Asked about reading the ladies. She can’t because they aren’t spiritual enough. Lisa looks upset. Asked about Lea. Elsa says that she likes Lea but it hurts her when Lea is mean to Marysol. Asked about Thomas Kramer’s house, she says she was trying to settle things down when she was taking to Lea because she knew Thomas was getting agitated. Then he went off on her. She’s no longer talking to Thomas. He never apologized. He pretended nothing happened. Marysol says he always does that.
Elsa explains her face is due to bad surgery. She’d like to fix it but she’s not very lucky with surgery. Why did she call President Obama an animal? She denies it and says she loves Michelle. Editing?? She was asked about being Madonna’s spiritual advisor. She did have a relationship with Madonna. She’s asked about her personal life. She says she has a grandson and she’s not married. Marysol corrects her and says she is married and Elsa says “oh yes I am, the divorce isn’t final.” She is hilarious. Andy asks is she still feels that he is incapable of love. She said that on WWHL last year. She changes the subject and says he has secrets.
And that’s it. Wrap up:
Ana – are you still love with Robert? Not in love, but they grew up together. It’s hard.
Marysol – have you moved on from Phillippe? Yes but it’s hard.
Adriana – getting married in the spring.
Joanna – will be getting married but no rush.
Lisa – will keep trying to have a baby.
Karent – moved on from Rodolfo – will keep on smiling and move on.
Lea is asked about predictions for this group. She says reality TV brings out the best and worst in people. Sometimes it’s hard to stay grounded and not react. Then she says, some of you have brought character assassinations today and I want to say that I’ll forgive it but not forget it and my forgiveness is quantified. Huh – it was like she got to do the wrap up.
That’s it except for lost footage next Tuesday. My wrapup. It sure looked to me like Lea came in thinking she could criticize and demean Marysol and Ana and didn’t expect them to come after her. She looked like a hypocrite because she’d accuse them of things she was doing. She kept repeating the same lines making me think she had rehearsed them. Ana got too many low blows and I especially didn’t appreciate the ones about Lea’s age. Marysol finally stood up for herself and I’m glad for her. Lisa came off well. Adriana tried to behave. Joanna is hopeless. Karent is annoying and clueless and again, there is something that seems off about her. I have no idea what was wrong with Alexia, but she was way too angry. Mama Elsa said it best. The energy in the room was “false”.
Ana is promising a blog that will explain more. Here website is here but it’s not up yet.
Project Runway All Stars, “All Stars and Stripes” by BB
Remaining designers: Anthony Ryan (4 wins); Uli (2 wins); Emilio (2 wins); and Joshua (0 wins). Eliminated designers: Peach (week 1); Wendy (week 2); Suede (week 3); Andrae (week 4); Kayne (week 5); Althea (week 6); Casanova (week 7); Laura Kathleen (week 8); and Ivy (week 9)
Guest Judges: Actress Katie Holmes and Designer Carmen Marc Valvo
The four remaining designers meet Carolyn on the deck of the USS Intrepid. The purpose of tonight’s challenge is to honor those who have served the military. Each of the remaining four designers will be paired with a female veteran of the armed forces.
Joshua is paired with Leslie from the Army. His brother is in the Army so he can relate. She had to have her leg amputated in Bosnia due to an infection. She has a service dog. She will be going to a military function and wants to wear a dress instead of her uniform. She is a die-hard fan of leopard or cheetah print. Right up Joshua’s alley. Anthony Ryan’s client was in the Air Force and her name is Donna. Donna wants a long strapless dress for her 40th birthday celebration. Lisa is from the Navy and meets with Emilio. Her event is her best friend’s bachelorette party in Vegas. They discuss a short sparkly fun dress, but Lisa doesn’t want glitzy and she likes yellow. Uli meets with Jessica from the Marines. She will be attending a wedding and says she likes purple. She tells Uli she likes her long dress.
The designers have $150 and 30 minutes to shop at Mood. Uli can’t find anything purple she likes, so she’s going for a black and white print. Uli herself wears colored prints, but she really shies away from color in her designs. Anthony Ryan is using dark gray, light gray and white gray. He is worried about his design complimenting Donna’s figure. Josh is dyeing his fabric because even through Leslie likes leopard print, she’s not a fan of the bold graphic prints.
Joanna shows up and tells them she’s going to be extra vigorous for the veterans.
Joanna suggests to Anthony Ryan to add one shoulder just to give his client more support and comfort instead of going totally strapless. Joanna points out that Uli is making a dress just like the one she’s wearing. Uli tells Joanna that her client told her she liked her dress.
When Joanna gets to Emilio she’s worried he might be out of his comfort zone by not doing something “runway” like. He tells her all his clients aren’t runway types. Joshua shows Joanna his dyed fabric and she tells Joshua he seems particularly inspired about this challenge. He talks to Joanna about how proud his army brother was of him after seeing him on his season of Project Runway. As Joanna leaves, she tells them how impressed she is, but also reminds them that only three of the four will be going on to the finale after this challenge.
The ladies show up for their fittings and Emilio is going to have to make some real changes to Lisa’s dress after trying it on her. He’s going to pretty much start over and barely has enough fabric to do it.
Anthony Ryan is worried about Donna’s dress. Emilio says her dress does nothing for her and I kind of agree. It has no shape and I hope Anthony Ryan makes some adjustments. After the women leave, Emilio is in a hurry trying to create a new bodice for Lisa and he’s really concerned. Uli announces it’s time to go back to the hotel and Emilio says he may jump out of a window when he gets back.
Back at the hotel, they go down memory lane. Anthony Ryan notices he’s with three second place winners from their respective seasons. He got eliminated earlier in his season and wonders what he’s gotten himself into. However, he’s the only one who has won four challenges. Emilio and Uli have only won two apiece and Joshua hasn’t won any.
The next day they have two hours. Emilio has to reconfigure his whole dress and put it together in two hours. Anthony Ryan needs to see if what he’s done to create the illusion of a waist is going to work on Donna. He sees right away he’s going to have to draw the waist in. Emilio says the bust portion of Anthony Ryan’s dress is not flattering to Donna at all. Anthony Ryan’s dress is the most problematic. Nobody will say it, but Anthony Ryan’s client is a large woman, especially in the bust, so in his defense, she is probably the hardest to fit. Uli looks like she put one of her own personal dresses on Jessica. Jessica looks great and Emilio thinks Uli might win this one. Joshua’s dress looks good on Leslie too. He even made the dog something to wear. Anthony Ryan is scared to death because the dress he made is not his aesthetic. Emilio gets his dress done right in the nick of time.
It’s runway time and I really hate to see any of these designers go home tonight. This is the first night I’ve felt this way. I like all four of them. Here we go (taking a deep breath). Jessica looks great in Uli’s dress and she looks like an actual model. Lisa, Emilios’ model looks good in that bold yellow color and I like the cut-out in the back. Anthony Ryan is hoping for the best for Donna’s dress. It’s pretty, but not that flattering on her. Joshua’s dress is so cute and I love that flirty dress on Leslie. The dog looks cute, too. Her dog’s name is Isaac.
The models get to discuss their dresses with the judges. Leslie (Joshua) is first and she’s proud to show her prosthetic leg in her short dress. The judges love it. Leslie is beaming. Isaac thinks Isaac should be in something a little more glamorous. Next is Lisa (Emilio). Katie loves the color and thinks the dress is fun. Georgina loves the color, but asks if it’s two different fabrics. She thinks it may look like a mistake on the execution. I can’t tell on the television, but there’s something wrong with the way he fitted the fabric together (color variation). Uli and Jessica are up next. Carolyn loves the back of Uli’s dress and she also loves the shape. Georgina likes the high/low hemline and it’s perfect for a wedding. Isaac thinks the embellishment looks like it’s last minute and Katie agrees. Carmen loves the way it fits. Anthony Ryan/Donna are up last. Caryolyn tells her she looks very lovely. Donna tells the judges she wanted to be hidden and Carolyn tells her to celebrate her curves. Georgina agrees the straight across the neckline bust is a little claustrophobic. Katie thinks Anthony Ryan should have done beaded straps instead of solid fabric straps. Isaac thinks he did a great job, and he gave Donna what she wanted even though it may not have been the most flattering dress for her.
The judges’ favorites are Joshua and Uli. Georgina would have liked Joshua’s dress to be a full dress (long). Isaac and Katie didn’t like the embellishment on the print of Uli’s dress. Georgina thought Anthony Ryan got lost with his dress. Isaac tells the others he really likes it and he gets a little upset hearing the others talk about Anthony Ryan’s dress. The judges didn’t like the execution of Emilio’s dress. Georgina thought it looked home-made. Georgina and Isaac like Anthony Ryan’s dress better and Katie and Carmen like Emilio’s dress better. So who will be going home?
Tonight’s winner is announced by Katie and it’s Joshua. His first win and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m glad Joshua won because Uli’s dress was pretty, but predictable. So now it’s down to Emilio whose color the judges love, but not his execution. They loved Anthony Ryan’s fabric choice, but he didn’t celebrate his client’s curves enough. Guess what? They are both safe! I’m glad. Carolyn tells them not to get too comfortable and they’d better bring their best next week. Next week the designers will be going to Paris! I enjoyed tonight’s episode.
