Adriana de Moura caught in a Big Lie / Top Chef Seattle / Final Survey Results

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.

Honey, we're going to pretend we're not married and ask you if we can get married even though we've been saying we're engaged.

Honey, we’re going to pretend we’re not married and ask you if we can get married even though we’ve been saying we’re engaged.

Okay, I'll go along with this if you buy me an X-box.

Okay, I’ll go along with this if you buy me an X-box.

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-season-10-gallery-episode-1009-11

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!


top-chef-season-10-gallery-episode-1009-06 top-chef-season-10-gallery-episode-1009-143 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.

Elimination Challenge

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.

Judges Table

top-chef-season-10-gallery-episode-1009-07top-chef-season-10-gallery-episode-1009-28Padma 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.

Final Decision

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!

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning. Happy lazy Saturday everyone. NMD this is your 1st weekend home. I know you love being at home but I’m sure you’re missing Whistler. 🙂 AZGirl I hope you’re able to workout today. I know you’ve been missing it. TexasTart did you get some of that snow? It looked pretty but I’m sure you all don’t want it. Diva there was a funnel in Miami. Did you get any of that? I hope you’re safe. Have a great day all.

    • powell…thanks for thinking of me.. i am not that far south any longer.. that was an awesome pic of the funnel cloud for sure though…. I am in the Lake Okeechobee area …for now…if things dont improve here, we are considering a move… not sure where to..have lots of options though…. one day at a time…

      so..adrianna…. umm did she get divorced from her first husband ? the one in Brazil and her kids Father ???? you would think that ALL these characters would know by now that we, the viewers, LOVE LOVE LOVE to research them…. hahahahahaha
      I just so enjoy reading thru all the public records and see some of the stuff on them…bravo really needs a ” researcher” on staff before they have these chicks sign on the dotted line as to what their TRUE story line is going to be before shooting episodes…
      local newspapers are also a great place to search these folks… and remember… when
      ” googling” people… don’t stop on page one..some of the really really good stuff can be found on pages 12 and up … winks
      well , off to bathe the dogs..another beautiful ” winter ” day here in fla… can’t believe that I am still wearing my sun dresses and flip flops… hasnt been cold enough yet for my leggings and boots…damn !!!! but I am sure we will be getting that north artic cold blast soon..
      have a good one all..bbl
      hugs and peace

      • Kansas Girl says:

        You betcha, local newspapers, where the proud parents trumpet the birth or life events and list all the relatives too.

        It’s cold here. Move to Kansas if you’re hoping for “real” weather. LOL!

        • kansas… i am actually a cornhusker…born in lincoln nebraska…. i know COLD.. lived in aspen for 3 years also…. bbbrrrrrrrrr

          gotcha on the “newspapers” lol winks

        • Laineylainey says:

          The coldest winter I ever lived through was in 1984, I believe the coldest day was 30 degrees below zero.

    • AZGirl says:

      Started back yesterday and got another spin class today. Not coughing as much but the Prednisone is a bitch. Keeping me up at night. Going to start weaning off of it. Stuff is crazy. Thanks for asking.

    • TexasTart says:

      Greetings, Powell! No snow here and it’s just as well since they have to close down the City of Austin because no one can drive in it here, ha ha. There was snow to the west and it was a very exciting for some children who have never seen snow.

      Stupid move Adriana….I’ll have to catch up to the blog later. I’m working today to wrap up the year end for the business.
      Have a great day! 😀

  2. cocfarm says:

    Ive lost track of top chef. Is mche the guy in the center in the photo? The guy who was so arrogant at the beginning of the season? If so, glad to hear he is gone. I have to start watching again. It is the only bravo show I still watch.

    • Yes – and he was arrogant until he was gone. Kristen (also in that photo) is looking like a good candidate to win the whole thing.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I was amazed that he lasted as long as he did! Glad he is gone as well.

      • cocfarm says:

        He was a serious pot stirrer!

      • Laineylainey says:

        Are we talking about John here? He really messed up that risotto. I have never made risotto. Top chef and all the failed risitto moments makes me not want to even try!

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I get the impression that one of the problems with risotto is that so many people like it cook differently. Some like it cooked less and others like it cooked more. Firmer verses softer. If I were on the show I might avoid risotto all together, if possible.. JMHO.

          • Laineylainey says:

            Exactly. Come to think of it, I have never earn risotto.

            • Laineylainey says:

              Hard to type on this here iPad sometimes… “Earn” should have been eaten

            • cocfarm says:

              I have earned, eaten and made risotto 😉 The problem is they try to take shortcuts. It requires time and patience which is in short supply on tc. You slowly cook the Italian rice until it absorbs the broth. It really isn’t tricky…just no way to speed up broth absorption.

  3. Good Morning. Is a new mob wives starting? Does anyone want to blog it? Detox did it last time, but I think she’s still having technical difficulties. I am SO excited for Downton Abbey.

  4. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone. Back from the gym and feeling great. Beautiful sunny day but cold.

  5. Powell says:

    How in the world dud Bravo not know Adriana & Frederic are already married? Well Adriana is going to spin it and say since they were married by the County Clerk & not in a church by a Priest they don’t consider themselves married. Or maybe she’ll say she didn’t want her ex to know so she could get child support.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Her marital status would not affect the child support, would it?

      • Powell says:

        Lainey I wouldn’t think so. I was just coming up w/some reasons Adriana might use as her excuse for lying to the viewers.

      • getting remarried only effects alimony..not child support… mis spelling of a name !!! wow..these chick really know how to spin it don’t they… plus in have to SIGN the certificate..she didnt notice the name was wrong..PLEASE !!!!!!
        and a mispelled name on a marriage certificate DOES not invalidate the marriage…
        she collects $1000.00 a month in child support per the court order…her home is also in foreclosure…all records are online under the name of sidi….

      • PJ says:

        Absolutely not..

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I think that Andy Cohen only cares if you use the F word, on camera, and if he does not care for you. Bravo is not a moral compass for the nation or world and never has been, nor will be. I think Adrianna is demented, A very dark and underhanded character. A perfect friend for the passive/aggressive Lea Blackheart. JMHO.

      • Beckygrey says:

        Child support no, alimony yes.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Even up to last night she replied on twitter to Msfran53 (who asked her if she’s been married since 08) with a “no”. Even tho there is a blog/article out where a rep of A’s says they did marry on a whim on a date, but the certificate is invalid because A’s maiden name is Mauro not de Mauro as the cert says… So the rep says she married, but invalid, so they decided to take it slow. All I can think is liar liar pants on fire! Bravo rep just said they had no clue. Time to vett these wives better.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Okay she clarified w/another 1 word answer. After denying it, Fran and another followed up w/ this exchange:

        @rottenbraten: @MsFran53 @kodiac33 @adrianathereal her peeps say they married but license had her name misspelled so not valid.

        @MsFran53: @rottenbraten @kodiac33 @adrianathereal so technically she isnt married cos of a that the case Adriana?

        @adrianathereal: @MsFran53 @rottenbraten @kodiac33 yes


        So, the typo makes the marriage invalid in Fl is the card she’s going to play here.

  6. Powell says:

    Miami reunion 1 & 2 starting now.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      The Blacks have connections and any benefit from being on the same show are out the window for Ana now. I find it strange that since Ana and Lea were not in many scenes together or formed a friendship during the season that Ana would even think that Lea was coming after her at the reunion.

  7. thedesigndiva2 says:

    Adriana was married to greg cummings in dallas tx jan 4th 1992… so she knows lea from texas….

    • Rebecca says:

      Maybe Lea is the one who told her her marriage wasn’t legal. You would think she would have known about all this.

      • the only way the marriage would not be valid is that adriana never got divorced from either her first husband or her second husband…. too bad they dont show the original application online…. you know, the paperwork that you have to fill out at the clerks office… adriana is just blowing smoke now because she’s been busted in a lie… she also cant use the excuse that the marriage isnt valid because they were not married by a priest….um…
        catholics cant get married in the church if they have been divorced before…the only way they can is if they have the marriage annulled , which is a hard thing to do… my best friend of 30 plus years had her first marriage annulled and it took 7 years to go thru the process so she could get married in the Catholic Church… when oh when will these folks learn about the lies they tell or the past they try to hide…

    • Marriage Date



      Greg A Cummings

      figured I would post this… guess no one else has posted anything about this marriage…

  8. Good Morning All! Happy Saturday!

    SMH at more HW cray cray. Bravo is definitely losing their touch. They need to hire Diva!! Let’s start a petition! Ya listening Bravo?!?

    New blog “Life’s A Message” is up at my place. It is good, and I already noticed one this morning! Read & Enjoy!

    Now….I have to share a funny story that happened to me this morning. I knew I had to share with all my friends here! If you aren’t interested, just scroll on by! 🙂

    So, I went out early to do some shopping cuz I love the stores when they are empty. Now, a bit of background here……I am 55 yrs old, with very long (to my butt) hair that I have been coloring for a long time but recently decided to stop and let my grey hair grow out. I am almost completely grey, but it is a silvery grey (like my mom’s), and I am kinda liking it. I am not going to strip all the color off, just let it grow out naturally (and it grows fast)……so it is very evident now. Beyond just “roots” growing out.

    In addition, I am a rock & roll “girl’ from way back. I love all classic rock (and used to manage rock bands) so it is in my blood. I would rather listen to Led Zepplin and Aerosmith than some of the crap that is out these days. And I like to dance and rock to the music. It makes me feel like I am in my 20’s again! LOL!

    Anyway….I was in my car this morning with the stereo up prettttty loud listening to George Thorogood (sp?) and dancing around in my seat playing the drums on the steering wheel (I used to play drums) and this car full of teens pulls up next to me and rolls down their window and yells out….Rock It Granny!!!!! W.T.F.! I laughed…and they were being sweet, not derogatory, they were laughing too and we all had a good laugh…but….ROCK IT GRANNY?!? Oh.My.God!!

    I am not a granny yet, but hope to be soon….but I had no idea my hair going silver grey would get comments coming so soon. Arrrrgh!

    Anyway….just had to share. I knew you guys would understand!! LOL! Sigh. I am going to get my cane now and shuffle off to the library for some books. I hope I can walk by myself. LOL! 😛

    • thedesigndiva2 says:

      lol mardrag… i can actually SEE you doing that and rocking out… I do the same thing… drives the young uns nuts…. then of course they usually make the fatal error of wanting to race me…i drive a souped up dodge ram…hahahahaha…. i’ve never lost a race..yet !!!! they think it’s the kids truck..wrong on all counts…

      ROCK ON….

      • OMG Diva….this was the song I was listening too! You rock on yourself girl!! These young’uns have no idea who they are dealing with do they?? Love ya lady…have a good day!

        • thedesigndiva2 says:

          mardrag… somehow i just knew that was the song you were rocking out to… my ” visions” are starting to come back to me along with my inner gut feelings… i had put them all on hold these past few months…but this year I am going full bore with them…time to start freaking people out again…winks

          • Love that Diva! From one fellow to another…we a re kindred spirits. I am glad your inner voice is speaking to you again and that you do not have to have it “on hold” anymore. You Rock 2013….I have a “feeling” it is going to be a great year for you!! 😉

    • Rebecca says:

      That hawk told me make fried chicken today. So of course I am attempting the hardest recipe I could find- Brian Voltaggio’s chicken, biscuits and pickles. If this doesn’t turn out correctly, I will have wasted 24 hours of my life.

      Be prepared for hawk noodle soup next weekend.

    • Powell says:

      MarDrag that’s funny. I wish my hair was long like yours. You rock’n it out. I love it when a song that I just love comes on. It takes you back.

    • trudie says:

      I empathize, MarDrag. When my son was in pre-school, I was crossing the street with him and the crossing guard said to him: “Is your grandma bringing you to school today?” I was 38 at the time. Family still finds that amusing. I never liked that crossing guard 🙂

    Thank you bloggers, for all you do to keep Lynn’s Fam going.

    Lea looks great—more hair, less wrinkles. Own it—you paid for it.

    Adrianna and lLea friends for 20 years??? The plot thickens.

    The reunion shows were meh for me. Screeching and rehashing but not a lot if substance. Mama Elsa looked great too.

    Downton Abbey—-yes!

  10. Birdwoman says:

    I haven’t been following the Bethenney and Jason saga too closely. Did she break it off or did he? I thought it was him for some reason…

    I am very, very excited about season three of Downton Abbey!! Whoo hoo!

  11. Mene Seela says:

    I don’t even watch RHM and I am annoyed about that woman has been married for years to her proported boyfriend. Really? What load of hoo-hoo.

    W’ve been catching up on Boardwalk Empire and are preparing to dive into Dowtown Abby (is Downton or Dowtown?) thanks to the magic of Netflix. Next up after those are Game of Thrones and maybe Entourage.

    • melthehound says:

      Downton. No W.

    • Rebecca says:

      Go straight to Game of Thrones. Baby dragons rule!

      • Oh Rebecca.. they sure do!! 😀

      • IceNFire says:

        I couldn’t watch the Games of Thrones HBO series…strayed top far from the books

        • Do they IceNFire? I haven’t read the books yet. I was going to, but thought that, with other books I have read that have been made into movies or series the same thing happened and they strayed so far from the book that I did not enjoy them. I like the Game of Thrones series, so am waiting to read the books until later.

          I don’t know why they have to do that. Hmph. If the book is so good that it is a smashing hit and everyone is excited to see the movie/series, why change it? I have always been perplexed by that. Then everyone who read the book is disappointed. Curiouser & curiouser. 😉

    • Powell says:

      Mene Boardwalk is good isn’t it?

      • Mene Seela says:

        I love Nucky! I was so bummed about Jimmy. Margaret …. I ove the actress but the character of Margaret – she is such a hyprcrite. Taking blood money them donating it to feel important.
        My hubby loves the era. Nucky’s shoes never get wet in the opening sequence.

  12. dickens says:

    A couple of years ago, my husband came across our marriage license and we discovered that I had never signed it. We were told by a lawyer that, nevertheless, we are legally married (27 years).

    It reminded me of the old Dick Van Dyke show where they discovered that the man who married them wasn’t legit.

    I doubt that misspelling a name can make it void if not signing it doesn’t. We’ve had lots of laughs over our unsigned marriage license.

    • Since the fuss is about her “middle/maiden” name I doubt it even makes a difference. Just a feeble excuse to cover a stupid lie. Maybe they thought she’d be more likely to be cast on the show if she was single.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I am confused about this situation, my husband had his middle initial wrong on a bank loan and because of that , when we found out, called the bank and we had to do it all over again. They annulled the first contract because there was actually a person with my husband’s same first name and last name and whose middle initial coincided with the one wrongly assigned to my husband.
      I wonder about a marriage contract? it is also a legal document so the name should be spelled correctly. I think it probably could had been a very easy thing to fix , just a matter of showing birth certificate, passport or driver license andbe done but Adrianna and her BF decided to use it as an excuse to fix their mistake.
      So what does this mean legally? have they been married for 5 years or not? as far as contracts, loans, mortgages, are they legally married or not?

      • Powell says:

        Cartwheels that’s why when you sign mortgage docs, at least in MD, they have you sign a document that gives the lender authority to correct docs that have misspelled words, names. Then the lender will complete the corrected doc and send it to you to sign in front of a notary.

        • Cartwheels says:

          The good thing that came out of the ordeal is that we found out back then that my husband has a person who has his same name and last name so we have to be very careful about his middle initial as to not get it wrong again.

    • Powell says:

      Dickens do you ever tease your husband for fun & tell him “remember we’re not married”? I’m sure there are lots of marriage licenses that have some type of error.

    • Orson says:

      After my grandfather passed, my father and aunt went through some family papers. And they found my grandparent’s marriage license. It turned out that although the license was issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, they had gotten married in New Jersey. It turned out that they were ‘greenhorns’ and the only rabbi they knew was in NJ, so that’s where they went. So, my father looked at my aunt and said “I guess you know what this makes us?”

  13. BB says:

    If my name was misspelled on my birth certificate, does it mean I wasn’t born?

    • thedesigndiva2 says:

      bb,,lol lol …..

    • I know the answer to this one. My daughter’s name was misspelled on her birth certificate. I noticed several years later (two letters were transposed) and had it corrected by filling in a form with the county. It wasn’t a big deal at all – I suppose it happens all the time.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      If my name was misspelled on my college diploma does that mean I didn’t graduate?

    • Cartwheels says:

      If your name was misspelled in your birth certificate and never corrrected then you legally have the name with the mispelling, I know this because one of my friend’s name (at least the one his father intended to give him was Cesar but the clerk made a mistake and spelled it Ecsar, they were supposed to change it but never did and he is Ecsar, he has actually come to like his name, he says it is unique 😀 .

      • Powell says:

        It is. Do his parents call him Cesar?

        • Cartwheels says:

          No, now everybody calls him Ecsar and he has lived with that name for 38 years so he is keeping it, LOL

      • Laineylainey says:

        I prob should have researched this a little bit, but since we’re talking about misspelled names…it reminds me of Oprah Winfrey. Her mother wanted her to be named Orpha!! It was misspelled in the hospital and her b.c. It turned out ok for Oprah, didn’t it. Her name (the misspelled name) is world famous!!!

    • Powell says:

      Umm. Who are you again? 😉

    • Powell says:

      BB that made me just think about my mother & her birth certificate & my aunt, her sister’s disagreement about my mother’s name. It’s a friendly disagreement, not a big deal w/them but my aunt says my mother has a middle name, Ann my aunt says. My mother’s BC has her 1st name & her last name only, so she told my aunt their mother may have intended to give her a middle name but it’s not on her BC, therefore she has no middle name. It’s quite funny to me.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I spent the first 20 years of my life with my first name spelled wrong on my bc. We attempted to change it, and it came back wrong lol. So after the 3rd attempt my first name is spelled right finally; however, they changed (misspelled by combining) my middle names. Lol. I finally gave up and oh well. Lol

    • Kansas Girl says:

      My mother’s birth certificate listed her as a boy!

  14. Rebecca says:

    My mother’s legal birth name is very Italian, but her marriage certificate uses her American version of the name. People, it was a very valid marriage.

    Just because she doesn’t consider herself married (probably for financial reasons) doesn’t mean her marriage isn’t legal.

  15. melthehound says:

    Bravo’s Ryan McCormick claims they were clueless on the whole thing,….. Seems Bravo is clueless about a lot of things…..

    • thedesigndiva2 says:

      mth…maybe this ryan dude would give me a job…lol lol lol

    • Powell says:

      You’re telling me. All the people that are responsible for investigating their backgrounds need to be fired. A 5th grader could find out some of the stuff that’s come out.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        Bravo does not care about their backgrounds. If they cared we would never see Taylor, Marlo, Danielle, the Guidices, the Gorga’s, the Manzo’s, the Laurita’s and the list goes on and on. I think the channel attracts sleazy characters because the leader of the pact, Andy Cohen is a sleazy character. JMHO.

  16. Cartwheels says:

    So if the problem was the misspelling, how to fix it?
    Very simple, just correct the misspelling and that means that she has already been married for 5 years, right? I mean, they have lived together anyway .
    Adriana just wanted to get away with a big wedding on TV and now that is a bust.
    The best thing she can do is just fix her marriage certificate and be done with it.

    LOL, I bet she intended to have a huge wedding to rival with Johanna, but that would be too tacky now. oh the lies these HW tell.
    I wonder if that is one of the secrets that Lea has hold over Adrianna’s head to make her her “unconditional friend”

    • Powell says:

      Cartwheels that’s what I believe.

    • Laineylainey says:

      So you think they are lying about how lea helped Adriana when she was virtually homeless (sleeping at the gallery)? Wasn’t that the story of their connection?

      • thedesigndiva2 says:

        laineylainey…didnt believe that story the first time they told it..hahahahaha
        I”m just so OVER bravo thinking that the viewers are stupid and gullible… and mizz lea being married to all that mr black should know that nothing stays hidden in this day and age of the google machine… I’m betting dollars to donuts he is regretting the day she signed on the dotted line with Bravo… lol

      • Cartwheels says:

        I am rethinking it now, how could Adrianna be homeless few years ago if she was married. Why did her BF offered to pay half the tuition on her son’s school if they were married.
        I do think that Lea uses information as a leverage on people and buys loyalties with it so I wouldn’t put it past her.
        On the same token, I do believe that all the other ladies from the rest of the cast woke up this morning with the news. I doubt they knew it, especially Johanna and didn’t throw her under the bus at the reunion.

        • thedesigndiva2 says:

          cartwheels.. i wonder if ana had the info in her “folder” about adriana….now maybe I have abetter understanding of some of those deer in the headlights look that A had on her face a few times at the reunion..she was prob skeered ana was gonna spill the beans…lol lol
          ooppsss… she still got found out anyways….

  17. thedesigndiva2 says:

    I just researched Fla law…. her maiden name is NOT the only identifying thing on her application. her identification is the last named used..SIDI.. so an error in spelling of her MAIDEN name DOES NOT invalidate the marriage..
    So YES.. according to laws of the State of Florida…she is LEGALLY married….period.. she can try and spin it every which she wants.. but it wont hold water…lol

    btw…some info about their yacht

    • And the “Lady With The Red Folder” hits the ground running in 2013! Seriously Diva…..Bravo would be better off hiring you cuz otherwise you are going to be a big pain in their a** all year! LOL! You could save them a lot of heartache. You should email them. Tell them to come here to the blog for references!! 😀

   that one huh ??? my sister actually sent it to me last week,, my brother was having problems with his ex wife over their house , and his new gf…who i cant stand…loud mouth knows everything , was telling us at Christmas dinner about his lawsuit and how this high powered (cough cough) attorney could not find out anything about the ex wife and how the ex lied in court about there being a mortgage on the house ..
            i told her that yes all that info was available online… she tells me that this lawyer cant be wrong after all her office is located in some fancy ass place…told her big fffing deal..address does not equate being smart..look at bernie made off….. so my sister tells her…never underestimate divas ability to find out shit about people… so I came home..went to clerks website…found the mortgage papers and the fact that the ex took homestead exemption even though she does not live in the house and rents it out…ILLEGAL AS HELL.. so of course… I AM NOW THE MISS KNOW IT ALL… needless to say..bro is PISSED at the attorney for the lies she has told and all this info now has to be sent to the Judge for her review….lol lol… I should bill the attorney…ha

I used to work for a bank and I know how to research so much on County, State and City websites. Sometimes it takes time but It’s there. I think your bro’s attorney didn’t even attempt to look.

            • I swear Diva….you need to turn this gift you have into a business. Open your own detective agency….”Private Inquiries for Preferred Clientele, (Discretion NOT Assured”)! LOL!

      • Powell says:

        I like that MarDrag. 😀

    • Thanks Diva. Living on the Puget Sound, it was exciting to see that this yacht has spend a lot of time in my neck of the woods. I’ve had dinner a few times on two other yachts by the same designer that are somewhat similar. While they are fabulous, I don’t think I’d live aboard one. It sounds like Fredric is doing a great job restoring her. He must be extremely wealthy. It’s not the price of the yacht, but the repairs and upkeep are phenomenal.

    I mean I thought she was on her later 30/maybe 40, but 47
    She does have a great body for that age. Just saying

  20. Iowagirl says:

    What I really want to know is whose husband would go along with this scam. My hubby would be asking me if I had totally lost my effing mind. I think he would then say he had just saved half of everything, not married = no half. I am going to double check to make sure my name is spelled right.

    • Cartwheels says:

      LMAO, checking marriage certificate at this moment , LOL 😀

    • Powell says:

      Iowagirl your husband has a brain. All of the HWs & their husbands, BFs think they can get something off of the HW train. Now that I think about it isn’t Apollo the only husband that’s done something monetarily because of HWs fame? The Donkey Booty workout w/Phaedra.

  21. thedesigndiva2 says:


    Adriana did get divorced in 2003, but her and Roberto tried to work things out and had a common law marriage until 2006.

    The State of Florida does NOT recognize common law marriages… the only way a common law marriage is considered legal… if you moved here from a state that does recognize them as being valid….

  22. Powell says:

    Viva las Diva is baaaaaack! The leak of Ana’s folder & since the Adriana farce, in my head a small voice kept repeating this is a job for Diva & her red folder. Flash back fridays are back also! PITA is married, wow, moved & married, Mazel. Good thought sent to you & Mr. Ford.

    Im Freezing in FL & Texas has had more snow than Chicago, crazy. DD is wind burnt on her face because she is in 9 degree weather. She is in shock from living so north.
    I loved the Miami reunion only because of Chimosa’s breakdown first. Something rocked Lea to her core. I think the comments being posted here about it are very interesting, I am team nobody, I can see everyones POV& everyone has a good point. I don’t care who comes back or who doesn’t it was only watchable because of the recaps, blog breakdowns & comments.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Hi Powell, thin layer of vaseline before going out,a ski mask or a scarf wrapped around her face were the options I suggested. It was her first run outside since moving up there, she competes in alot of races. She had a problem with every suggestion & I stopped listening after hearing something about clogged pores lol. She is in major shock by the cold, she has no words except curse words, but very busy & has lots of options. She’ll work it out. If thats her biggest problem right now, I’ll take it. Lisa

        • melthehound says:

          She hasn’t seen anything yet when it comes to cold around her area.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Hi Jeff, as a kid who went to school dressed like Ralphie’s brother, I tried to tell her what was coming. Since she could run from dorm to classes in CT she thought she knew what cold was. Her Padre wants to order her an artic suit, we are just waiting for her to say uncle. Until I convinced her that she will die without a long down coat was 2 months. Her roomate who is from chicago laughed when DD first showed her the coats she picked out. They didn’t even cover her behind. As for boots, every style, type, height, dry cold, wet cold, she loved buying new type of shoes, of course. Hubs & I are laughing because like you said, she ain’t seen nothing yet 🙂 Lisa

      • Orson says:

        Use vasoline to prevent windburn on a baby’s cheeks. Just smear it on. My mom did it with my brother and always laughed when she described the expression on the neighbor lady’s face when she was admiring my brother and gave his cheek a friendly pinch.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Hi Orson, vaseline on the face was part of my childhood also, my mom called it poor mans cream lol. I suggested, she resisted. I expect she will be singing a different tune next week, thanks for the suggestion, Lisa

  28. Mene Seela says:

    Wasn’t Oprah Winfrey”s name supposed to be Orpah or something but her bc was misspelled?

  29. One last thought. They went to the clerk’s office on a whim and got married? Why is the date on the certificate a month before the marriage date? It looks like the got the certificate,then went back and got married. That’s a long whim.

      • Nancy says:

        So much for the wedding vows eh?

        • BB says:

          One article read that “they grew apart.” There were never together to begin with.

          • Nancy says:

            Who do you think wanted out first? He should have kept his old job. I knew
            that it was going to be the kiss of death if he quit. He needed his own identity.
            It didn’t matter how much he made. Also IMHO having an official office in your
            home never ends well. Esp with people like Bethenny as she can never turn
            “it” off. Calling it quits after a few years is just wrong. I’d like to know how
            Jason’s parents are reaally thinking about this. It must be hard as I assume
            a part of them are happy.

            • Mene Seela says:

              • Nancy says:

                I completly agree Mene. My husband and I have worked together in the past
                and we loved it. (We set up at free clinic) however I didn’t see it working with
                Jason and Bethenny. Did you? Did anyone here?

                • Nancy says:


                • chismosa says:

                  i agree Nancy, completely. It was never going to work for B & J.

              • Cartwheels says:

                I could never either, my hubby would kill me or I would kill him, LOL

                I have known couple who did it so more power to them.

            • BB says:

              I’m thinking (hoping) it was mutual and they probably just finally looked at each other and said hey, neither one of us is happy and let’s just not go on like this. I hope Jason has other children in addition to Bryn so the Hoppys will have lots of grandparent time. It’s good that Bethenny will be having her show filmed in New York so Bryn will be in closer proximity to her dad and grandparents. I hope Jason and Bethenny both find what will make them happy in life. I’m glad they didn’t have a second child, thinking that would help. It rarely does.

              • Nancy says:

                From what I have been reading Jason is totally lost right now. He wanted
                to work on the marriage but I think you are right. I’m sure they both knew in
                their hearts that it just wasn’t going to work. I wonder how Bethenny’s therapist
                thinks of this? Remember when Jason said to Bethenny when they went to see
                B’s father? He said that if they needed a marriage counselor the marriage was over.
                That was a very large red flag for me.

              • Cartwheels says:

                Yes, that probably happened.
                I think that they both decided that before things got really ugly, it was better to call it quits while they could still talk to each other , after all they need to be able to keep it civil for Bryn’s sake.

            • Cartwheels says:

              Jason never quit his job, he was thinking about doing it but I guess his conservative nature never let him do it and now he is probably thanking his lucky stars he never did.

              • Nancy says:

                Where did you read that Cartwheels? I thought he had quit.

                • BB says:

                  I don’t think they ever made that final decision that Jason was going to work for Bethenny’s brand. They were thinking about it, but I don’t think he ever made the plunge. I hope not.

                  • Nancy says:

                    Do you think Jason wanted her to slow down a bit? It’s just sad for Bryn.
                    Well at least she won’t have to watch/hear them fight all the time.

                • Cartwheels says:

                  He never did, I saw it on the show, he kept saying that he was not happy with his job but he liked the security of having his own independent job from Bethenny, he wasn’t passionate about it but he was secure there, I thought that this was one of the reasons why he was so resentful of her, because she had found something that she loved and was passionate about , she offered him several times, several opportunities to make him happy, become her CEO, fund his own business, give him time (off work) for him to find his real passion, but Jason true to form never took on any offer and kept his job.
                  Somebody might have a different recollection of the show but that is how I remember it.

                  • BB says:

                    That’s how I remember it too.

                    Cartwheels I recall that too. And wasn’t Bethenny sued several times over the SG deal? That sounds very stressful. She was named in the suits not Jason which could have meant he wasn’t as upset about it as she may have been (if she was upset at all).

                    • Cartwheels says:

                      Yes, she was the object of many lawsuits but the only one of those lawsuits with her as defendant was the one with the “alleged” promotion company, the other lawsuits were against Beam and had Bethenny as witness.
                      I don’t think Jason was in any of the lawsuits.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Well , we knew it was coming.

    I saw the previews for that diving show and Kyle will be wearing an actual bathing suit instead of wet suit type suit. Should be interesting to watch.

    • Mene Seela says:

      I just love that. Maybe she and Kim will grow closer from sharing this. It is way outside of Kyle’s comfort zone – especially the bathing suit part.

  32. Nancy says:

    Are you watching the game?

    • BB says:

      We’re flipping back and forth between it and Antiques Roadshow.

      • Nancy says:

        George wants Greenbay to win but I want MIN to win as their 2nd string quarter back
        is playing. Wouldn’t that be an upset. I love to see “stuff” like that in sports.

        • BB says:

          I don’t care who wins, just like I didn’t care who won between the Texans and Bengals. That was a boring game and neither of those teams looked very impressive IMO. I wish the Redskins could have played one of them instead of Seattle tomorrow. Seattle is hot right now. Ugh.

  33. Mene Seela says:

    Bethenny always “leaves the party early”. Maybe after having the same arguments 500 times it was clear there was no hope of either one being content.

    • BB says:

      Yep. Jason is a “lets stop and smell the roses” kind of guy and Bethenny is a “let’s plant more roses, and peonies, and tulips, and pansies” kind of gal. Always looking for the next thing to accomplish. Nothing wrong with either perspective. But neither seemed to want to move towards a happy medium. JMO.

      • Mene Seela says:

        So true. She was the farmer, tractor and rototiller of that garden. Exhausting.
        I’m a hang out and nap in the hammock gal. They were both way too busy for me.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Uhmmm never thought about this but I guess I could be either one depending on the circunstances. With my ex-husband I had to be the “let’s plant more roses, and peonies, and tulips, and pansies” kind of gal, or nothing would had been done, his procastionation drove me crazy and usually put me in a bad mood.
        With my current husband I am more like “lets stop and smell the roses” kin of gal, because I don’t have the same presssure, he pulls his weight beautifullly and sometimes even spoils me a little bit and I let him because I feel more secure.

        It didn’t happened from day to night, the first two years of my marriage I was on autopilot, always ready to hussle, ready to pick up another project, to make extra money, only because that is all I knew at that point, I was used to be by myself and be the only breadwinner, he would asked me to slow down and take it easy and I just couldn’t. After the first two years and seeing that he was there to catch me if I fell, I started relaxing more and more and now it is all a free fall, LOL

  34. LA Debra says:

    I’m sad to hear Bethenny and Jason are divorcing. It bothered me that Jason would throw in her face “you are damaged” or something like that. It sounds like a fear she confided to him, and he used to hurt her in an argument. How do you trust someone who fights like that? I could totally be projecting my experience, but it bothered me.

    I hope they both go on to find love and happiness.

    • Cartwheels says:

      It did bothered me that he used her worse and most sensitive issues like “you are damaged” nobody will love you” and “not normal” to drive his point accross.
      I know that Bethenny said it, but it was an acknowledgement of her circunstances and she was working towards moving on from them, Jason used them in moments when he was angry, so they were used as a weapon against him.
      I am sure they both will be if not happy at least more at peace mentally now that they will be separated. Sometimes the toxicity of having the same argument over and over is enough to drive anybody crazy, especially when it is bound to not be solved.

      • Mene Seela says:

        I wish more married couples understood that your spouse needs to be your buddy in life too. My hubby and I have each others back no matter what. Not that we’ve had too many “no matter what” moments but he knows he can trust me and I trust him in that manner. Thank heavens.

    well… upon further research…you can’t just go get a marriage license and get married here in fla.. in 1998 the Legislature passed the Marriage Preperation and Preservation Act…
    here is the application that you fill out in Miami in order to apply for a license… so Miss Adriana MUST have filled in the name part as DEMOURA herself…. no typo from the clerks office… hmmm

      Thank-you so much for posting that. He is adorable. Kim won the lottery.
      What was with # 50 though? He cracked me up.

  37. Stephiebar says:

    Okay, what a day, somewhere is the world Karent is smiling, and this time the smile is real LOL.

    To be perfectly honest I don’t care if Karent had a fake relationship or Joanna had a fake fight/ break up with her bf or in all honesty if Audriana is married. Really couldn’t care, they entertained me, shocked me, upset me, made me laugh etc and if I could sit through KKB on RHONY and her REAL cray cray, than a bit of ‘liven it up’ was fine for me.

    But as I am sure some of you already know, I do not support Audriana, so seeing her caught out in yet another lie, doesn’t surprise me and NoMoreDrama there is a smile on my face, so thanks for the heads up!
    Regarding the law: not American so no idea about your laws, but I know that in Aus & Canada, whenever writing/signing anything legit/ dealing with police, you will be asked if you are know by any other alias’s etc. I mean think about it, with the amount of names that Sharna Taylor Ford Armstrong could have signed with, she could be starring on the female reality version of Big Love.

    I couldn’t see a 4 year marriage of living together and consummating the marriage being swept away in a TYPO technicality, as gross as it is to point out, typically there is money and everything each person owns in the world tied to marriages (unless you pre-nup) and most laws and countries have a type of “common sense law” and have a ‘to the best of your knowledge clause/ law’, a typo wouldn’t be able to penetrate that. That is most likely why other posters have posted that they forgot to sign their docs, wrong middle name etc and all went through.

    Reason being, you thought you were signing for you, you understood the contract and agreed, you went ahead lawfully with the best of your knowledge, Meaning if it looks like a duck, sounds like and duck and walks like a duck, the law would consider it a duck.

    The age doesn’t surprise me either, it would have two weeks ago, but at the reunion, I thought she looked overly botoxed, almost as if it had been botched and filler had caused bruising to her cheeks – her face seemed paralyzed.

    The reasons I really don’t like Audriana (and readily admit that) and take pleasure in her latest big pile of poo, is people are seeing her for the fame seeking fair-weather friend she is.

    I understand that all RH shows are women being paid to cage fight (quoted from Alex ex-RHONY), I have no issues with that, I enjoy some of the drama etc, but this girl seems to be missing the same morals chip that Sharna Taylor Hughes Ford Armstrong is.

    Audriana (as reported by Stoopidhousewives) claimed that Sidi had sexually assaulted her when she left him, that it went through on their divorce, however they separated and divorced with no mention of this on a much earlier date than 2006. SH still has the link for this article where Sidi’s sister defends her brother the ex husband. This does not sit well with me at all, not at all. Just yuck. She seems to have made these allegations at the time Taylor was getting alot of press due to her marriage with Russell.

    Christy Rice explained in season 1 reunion (still on youtube), she went after/ was disgusted by Audriana as Audriana told the women she was on the show, to bash Sidi, the father of her only son. I don’t care if he was the dirt of the earth, it just doesn’t feel right to have the mother of a child go after the child’s father in such a deplorable way on an International forum, (this wasn’t a Brandi/ Camille dig about their ex), this was really disgusting comments and things she accused him of on TV, including saying he doesn’t want to support his son financially he’s a KID, even if he knows this, the playground bullies don’t need that ammo. I just, yeah, It doesn’t sit well with me.

    The Joanna thing, now I know a lot of people don’t like Joanna or how she is when she drinks, I don’t like how Joanna is when she drinks, but I like her when she’s sober and does she give back good, yes, but it was in the parameters of the housewives fight for drama range. I couldn’t believe when Audriana was saying she wasn’t the only ‘pu*sy’ in Miami comment, the re tweeting REAL character assassination malicious gossip about Joanna, and calling her a hooker and a prostitute on international tv, and not just as name calling names, but was accusing her of being a prostitute. It just goes against everything I stand for. Do I like my housewives to bring the drama, yes. But I have never seen a housewife so against her own gender, social workers, teachers etc run seminars to girls here about not calling other women these degrading words, not referring to other women just as ‘pu*sy’, and it has much more weight in society and self esteem and what young girls/ guys think is acceptable. Much like Andy points out to Teresa and Joe that the ‘f*ggot’ word has got to go as it goes to such a deeper level in society, so are social workers and counselors trying to stop the language used to describe women, it is doing massive damage to our youth, young girls esteem and self worth and how young come to conclusions with this language, rap songs etc, that treating a girl like a hooker is okay.

    Last reason, I consider a fact, although technically it’s not. Just as Diva is known on this site for finding out things, In real life, I am known to be able to spot a girls girl a mile away and a pariah a mile away. My girlfriends are forever asking me to meet so and so, usually a girl that their BF’s have become friends with at work etc and give them the lowdown, its my specality. I grew up in an all women household. I know nothing about men, at all, A woman, I can tell if she is genuine in a second. Joanna, although requires a lot of work, is a girls girl, she will stick up for other women and support her friends, she gets down and dirty and can mud sling like the best of them, but she didn’t cross the line. Audriana, believe me, she is a pariah, not even her BFF should take her eye of Audriana the opportunist, this one is a survivor and not in a good way.

    Now that I have had my massive rant – thanks for reading the one or two ppl that didn’t tune out, onto the real INTERESTING stuff, which I will re-post this part because I really really want to hear what you guys think. I have a theory.

    I think that either Lea or Ana was the first source to leak this….

    Both are getting neg press right now and both want the spotlight moved off quickly, so I think it was maybe Lea bc she has known Audriana the longest and most likely to have known about this… Or Ana because we all know she is a fact finding lawyer and I think Audriana got under her skin at the reunion a bit when pretending to not know what Ana was talking about and refusing to side against Lea, there was an eye roll I believe, I know it’s a stretch, but neither lady would be liking the attention they are receiving now, this may have been just to easy to pass up.

    Either way, I see Karent smiling all day today!

      How is Adriana a fair-weather friend? Who has she dumped? She was so eloquent when she spoke about being a very loyal friend to Lea, though disagreeing with many things Lea may have said at the reunion. I thought she handled that very well.

      It was said in the blog the other day, not sure if you caught it- but Joanna called Adriana HORRIFIC things on-camera that Bravo edited out and that were on camera but we couldn’t hear them because they were bleeped out, and tweeted about Adriana. I’m just saying, i don’t think Adr. came out the gate out of nowhere.

      For some reason, i don’t know why, i just don’t think Adriana’s marriage issue was brought up at the reunion. Just a feeling i have.
