Adriana de Moura is caught in a Big Lie and Other Housewife News by NoMoreDrama
Oh for goodness sake – another fake relationship exposed on Real Housewives of Miami. This time it’s Adriana de Moura (Sidi) and guess what? She has been married to Frederic Marq for FOUR years – the man who played her boyfriend / fiance on the show. Jeesh. On the season’s finale they sat her son down and told him they were getting married. They should be ashamed of themselves. Couldn’t she come up with a better storyline?? Anyway, here’s a copy of her wedding license. Wow – Adriana sure looks good for her age – I would have guessed she was in her 30’s but if she was born in November of 1965 she’s 47.
Update: From RadarOnline – statement from Adriana’s publicist Lynn Brodsky:
“Adriana did get divorced in 2003, but her and Roberto tried to work things out and had a common law marriage until 2006. After breaking it off she then met Frederic in 2008. On a romantic whim after dating briefly, Adriana and Frederic went to the clerk’s office on their own with no friends and family, and were married. There was a discrepancy in the certificate – so instead of having the marriage fix [sic] or annulled, they decided to take a step back and hold off until they were truly ready. Adriana and Frederic are planning to have a beautiful (and proper) wedding this spring. Marriage certificates are not valid by law if there is a typo on it. There was a typo on their certificate. I have no further comments at this time.”
This does not make sense to me. They should have had the typo fixed or the marriage annulled. It’s like they just justified this in their heads – NMD.
Bravo’s Ryan McCormick claims they were clueless on the whole thing, “We were not aware that they were married.”
Update 2: Here is her divorce from Roberto. Note it was in 2001 not 2003 as her statement said. Probably just an error and not another lie, since there is no apparent reason to lie. Collins County Texas. Stoopidhousewives had a writeup about this in 2011.
Remember Nick the Food Blogger from Bethenny Frankel’s spin off show? Looks like he’s dropped over 66 pounds and got himself an article in People. Bethenny is credited with helping Nick lose weight. Apparently she gave him a copy of her cookbook and introduced him to yoga. You can read about it here. Congratulations to Nick and his new found confidence!
Meanwhile, Bethenny and Bryn are reported to be in Aspen while Jason Hoppy moves out of their 5 million dollar apartment, according to PerezHilton. According to an insider source: “Jason is in the process of moving out of their $5 million pad. It’s not a healthy situation for them to be leaving under the same roof together because Bethenny doesn’t intend on getting back together with him.”
Lea Black has given another interview – this time to OK Magazine explaining her side of things. On Marysol: “She dropped the ball and caused some issues at our charity event and to add insult to injury, instead of taking responsibility for her mistakes, she badmouths the charity and the volunteers. She justifies her poor performance by claiming to be a “volunteer” instead of a professional hired to do a job but I have canceled checks and contracts to prove otherwise. I think her intentions were good and she meant well, but there were mistakes made that had a domino effect on the Gala. Just like it is her duty to protect her company it is my duty to protect the charity, donors, talent and volunteers.”
On her comment that made Adriana’s face fall in disappointment: “I have always cared for and protected Adriana and her son, and I adore Frederick. I didn’t say she came across ugly. What I said was, and I was speaking to both her and Joanna, “it is heartbreaking when people are so beautiful on the outside and the opposite on the inside, and out of my love and devotion to her – I have been honest about it.” The opposite of beautiful is ugly Lea. You said she was ugly on the inside. Own it.
And on Ana: “I haven’t had 100 words with her since the show started and maybe 20 words the couple of very brief times I met her before. My understanding is that according to her, the rage started with protecting Marysol, then it was because three girls on the show told her I was going to “attack” her, then it was that I talked about her daughters (It’s not true and you won’t find that anywhere in anything I ever said on the show or wrote on my blog), then it was the editing and I think the latest is, well, I can’t remember right this second.”
My question to Lea is this. If you had only a brief interaction with Ana and weren’t planning on attacking her – why did you start in on her during the reunion? Were you retaliating for Thomas Kramer?
Top Chef Seattle 1/2/13 by Sugar Magnolia
9 Chefs left. Sheldon is sharpening knives. In his opinion, it’s what separates a good chef from a great chef. Funny, I thought sharp knives, besides cutting/chopping mise en place, meant that if you cut yourself you get a clean cut vs a bad cut. (My husband is a chef, not for a living, but he sharpens our knives regularly. I guess that makes him a great chef.)
Top Chef Kitchen. Padma introduces us to Master Bladesmith Bob Kramer.
Bob is one of 120 Master Bladesmiths in the country. I am guessing this is going to be a cutting Quickfire. $500 per inch for his knives. Yikes! Spendy!
3 rounds. First round is sharpening skills (good thing Sheldon practiced his this morning). First 2 teams will move on. Round 2 is about precision–as a team they will tourne 50 spuds. Third round, teams will face off against each other and french the rack of 2 rabbits. First chef to finish will be the winner. Please draw knives for teams and take a station. Chefs are given very dull knives that they must sharpen enough to cut through paper.
Green team–Stefan, Lizzie, and Brooke does not make the “cut” and are dismissed. Round 2–tourne the potatoes. Josie cut herself, which disqualifies her and the Red team will have to continue without her. Blue teams wins by 2 spuds. Sheldon, Stash, and Micah face off with the rabbits for round 3. Micah is feeling Zen frenching the rabbits. He calls check, Bob looks at his bunnies and approves. Micah. Wins. IMMUNITY! And a knife from Mr. Kramer.
Padma tells us in honor of season 10, we will be taking a trip down memory lane. Uh-oh….Each chef will be assigned a “memorable moment” and will cook a dish related to that moment. It’s so difficult to replicate anything while putting a signature on it at the same time. I do not envy the cheftestants for this challenge. Sometimes you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t, so it’s a task to find the balance between showcasing individual talent while following the leader. It’s a fine line….The winning chef will inspire a Healthy Choice Cafe Steamer. It must be a healthy version of their predecessors. 2.5 hours to cook for Top Chef Super-Fans. $15k on the table for the winner, furnished by Healthy Choice. Kindles are provided under the stations for each chef loaded with a TC “moment” from the last 9 seasons. Good luck!
Off to Central Market to shop.
Lizzie gets Jamie and scallops. Enter Fabio iconic line, “This is Top Chef, not Top Scallop.” Back at the condo, they are analyzing their kindles and tasks at hand. Pea-puree-gate is revisited. And partaking in Healthy Choice meals…yeah, sure. Because 9 chefs in one place are going to microwave something….Uh-huh, thanks HC for the commercial! Geez, a very subtle hint from our sponsors…
Guest judges are Wolfgang Puck, Wiley Defresne, Jonathon Waxman. and Chris Cosentino. Oh, and Tom C of course.
- Josie–(season 1 ??) Herb-roasted chicken with parsnip puree and steamed root vegetables
- Stefan–(season 2-Betty) Roasted red pepper soup with bacon and grilled mimolette cheese sandwich
- MHCE–(season 3-Howie) Umami risotto with chicken, salmon roe, burdock root and carrot emulsion
- Sheldon–(season 4-??) Beef Carpaccio with poi aioli, mizuna and mushroom salad and silent tofu foam
- Lizzie–(season 5-Jamie) Seared scallops with roasted fennel, garlic puree, orange and olive salad
- Stash–(season 6– Michael Voltaggio) Soy-glazed pork tenderloin with smoked cashew puree and heirloom peaches
- Brooke–(season 7–Alex) Smoked salmon, forbidden black rice with english pea and parsnip puree
- Kristen–(season 8-Carla) Poached chicken breast, carrot puree with garlic and tofu emulsion
- Micah–(season 9-) Five spiced duck breast with miso polenta and pickled cherries
Commercial Vignette–judges reminiscing over their favorite moments.
Padma summons Stash, MHCE, Kristen, Lizzie, and Brooke. Hmmn….5 out of 9? Holy cow, are they on the top or the bottom? Could the judges really have liked 5 out of 9? I guess they are channeling Project Runway (Bravo’s biggest fail was selling that show) because these 5 have both top and bottom dishes.
Stash, Brooke, and Kristen have the 3 favorite dishes, which means Lizzie and MHCE are on the bottom. And the 15G’s go to Kristen! I’m sure Carla shouted out a Hooty-Hoo to K for her healthy chicken pot-pie version. I have to say, I love how the women are dominating this season! No offense to the men, but cheffing is a typically male-dominated profession (and even TC has only one woman winner) so it’s nice to see the ladies kick a little ass in the kitchen.
And now the judges turn their attention to MHCE and Lizzie. MHCE’s risotto is on the chopping block. Some rice was overcooked and some undercooked. MHCE blames the pots he had. (Apparently he wasn’t paying attention when he watched the show, because a craftsman never blames his tools. Replicating an Emeril favorite dish from NOLA, foam, and now he’s blaming his equipment? Bad Choice Thrice). Stash weighs in and says his pot was just fine and level. Thanks Stash. Lizzie knew her scallops were not fresh before she cooked them, but she really had no choice. They wouldn’t sear and she is much harder on herself than the judges are. Padma pulls out a kindle….It’s loaded with a tenth memorable moment from this season. Lizzie and MHCE will go head-to-head in a cook-off. (Go Lizzie!). Spicy Dill Pickles–CJ’s burger. (I got to meet the Tall One a few years ago on the TC tour in Portland. He is a very cool guy. We had a cigarette and a beer and some great conversation.)
Back to the kitchen to cook. MHCE is living up to his name. Still blaming the pot and thinks Lizzie does not deserve a second chance to cook. But, he agrees to share the pickles. His biggest attempt at playing nice. And then he steals all of Lizzie’s dill. What. A. Tool.
MHCE–lamb burger with fried egg and spicy pickle, tomato and pomegrate salad
Puck asks him if he found the right pan this time. HA! Chris C asks why he would put an egg on a lean dish. Puck doesn’t find it juicy enough.
Lizzie–Chicken burger with goat cheese ricotta and dill pickle roasted red pepper salad
She gets praise even after using white meat chicken for her burger. CC wants a “wisp of salt”. Uh-oh, the salt. Tom has nothing to criticize.
Padma asks each judge to pick their favorites. Chris–Lizzie, Puck–Lizzie, Tom–Lizzie, and finally Padma–Lizzie. And MHCE is asked to PYKAG. Woot! He is surprisingly humble after his loss–oh wait, nope, he thinks it bull-s@#*. Get over yourself….His TH is even worse…YOU just got schooled jackass. Now go to the Last Chance Kitchen so CJ can spank you.
See you next week fellow foodies!
