I believe that fashion -- just like art -- is a way of personal expression, and they are both a big part of contemporary culture. So that is why I was a little preoccupied with my packing for the Bimini trip. Everyone knows I take art seriously, and since I also consider fashion an art form, I had to take my choices of outfits seriously.
Hence, the over packing! Unfortunately, forgetting my passport was not the best move, and I paid for that...it took me all day to get to Bimini. Oh well, who says self-expression doesn't have a price?!
I was frazzled by the whole ordeal of traveling in bad weather and felt very happy to arrive safe and sound in the Bahamas. By the time I got there, the girls were already settled in at their respective homes, and I was left a room in the "Originals" abode. Frankly, I was happy with that arrangement, since I was still not certain on how Joanna and I would be around each other... Later on that evening we met for dinner, and the cocktails and shots were flowing like water. I was a bit apprehensive about how Joanna would react towards me, since we know when she drinks things can get ugly, but to my surprise and relief she didn't attack me and the dinner was very pleasant.
You are spicy and interesting unlike Ana and Alexia who are just plain mean. I kinda like your expression watching these women going at each other in the dinner scene. I am glad you were sane enough not to participate.
Adriana I totally related to you when you overpacked and then forgot your passport. You had me laughing in stitches. Good move not to be in the same house as Joanna. She is a crazy lunatic when she drinks. I was surprised she was still drinking alcohol. You would think she would have learned a lesson by now. You ended up with the nicer group of ladies in your house. The other house had all the troublemakers in it.
Totally love that you can speak multiple language! I'm jealous of that :) Of course I love the French language (who doesn't?!), and have studied it, but to become fluent in any language just requires constant use. Really enjoy watching you switch your languages around depending on who you're conversing with; you speak different languages with such ease.
I travel alot ,and the umpteen pieces of your luggage was funny to watch. My husband is constantly on me about packing lighter. Fashion is worth it!
Self expression?! You mean vanity! And that's why you forgot your passport. Personally I'm not a fan of your over the top wardrobe. I wish Bravo would give you and Alexia the boot! I can't stand watching either of you - brings me right back to high school!
I love that you always dress so fashionable. You may have forgot your passport. But at least you look fabulous all the time. I agree that someone needed to tell Karent her boyfriend was cheating. But look at how she was throwing herself at Thomas Kramer. Karent has totally been showing us who she really is. You seem to be right about her all along.
miamihousewivesfan ... "You may have forgot your passport. But at least you look fabulous" ... What a joke! Angriana looking fabulous...that's all that matters.... no worries about whether or not you catch your plane...you look fabulous...that's all that matters.
Again you somehow drag Joanna in on this!?!? Alcohol may be to blame for Joanna "getting ugly"...what's your excuse?
hahaha, I use to over pack to before they stared charging $20 per bag on commercial. I still overpack on private. Hey, ya never know when you might need a straw hat, or those extra dresses. I always have to have my own hair dryer and products, full size too....
Karma that's why you forgot your passport.....I bet you have a lot of bad things happen that we dont see because Karma my dear always comes......
@ddbird2l Karma had nothing do with it. Adriana forgot her passport simply because she is an idiot. All she thought about were those dreadful shower curtains she calls dresses.
Don't pretend that you were concerned about Karent finding out about Roberto cheating. All you and the "originals" wanted was to see her humiliated. As for Joanna getting ugly when she drinks, at least she is not like that all the time, but you obviously are.
Hypocrite...you say Karent always wants to be the center of attention. I think You are projecting how You really are, it is YOU that wants all the attention because why else at your in -laws' party did you put on that silly show-girl costume and dance? Instead of hiring a young professional Brazilian dancer with a banging body to perform-you had to perform -and take the attention off your in laws and put it back on yourself. You question others' etiquette and lack of social graces? But you take off your clothes to a complete stranger to take pictures? It seems you are the one who goes to these extremes for attention. And then you flirt w Joana's boyfriend and say that it is your personality? Yeah right!! then you slap Joana? OMG! You say Joana doesn't know how to dress for the occasion-but it looks like you buy your clothes from what is popular in Brazil- not here. Then you get angry because Karent wanted to take a picture with your idol-why wouldn't you want to share? You invited her-but then wanted to exclude her? You couldn't control the situation and were threatened that maybe the artist liked her more than you. Maybe you should stop trying to control. Instead of trying to set up Karent, you should see that what you don't like in her is really who you are-it is a reflection of you. However, It is actually entertaining to watch someone with an ego as big as yours get outdone by prettier, classier. more educated " ladies."
@dianagalvis Bravo!!!!! Encore!!! You have just described this self centered, narcissistic, jealous, envious, pompous, second-rate, stuck up, conceited, malicious, mean spirited piece of work to a T.
Hey Gordita, you are a dare pondus idonea fumo ! I not only feel sorry for Peter, I pray he gets himself fixed so he won't spread your DNA in the world.
FanOfCaroleHousewives: I agree. This crowd reminds me of the same bunch that have the blinders on when Teresa from NJ acts up. I am beginning to think Karent pays people, because that many women in the USA just cannot support someone so shallow. What happened to Karent was Karma.....but still upsetting to watch.
@rosyposy HUH? FYI: No one here gets paid or got paid for writing anything positive about Karent. Like you, we all have a voice; because you don't like what the majority has to say, that is not a reason for such accusations. A lot of us feel Karent was horribly mistreated. Whether one likes her or not. That is not the point. The fact is FIVE so-called "ladies" behaved like total bullies going after the ONE person they all hated. Which is WRONG!!! this is why many of us are outraged by this mob mentality. We don't have blinders on we are simply stating what we are watching. By the way... what show are YOU watching?
@FanOfCaroleHousewives . . . I'm just giving Adrianna a taste of her own medicine with her fork tongue. She's a bully and a mean girl who thinks she has copyrights over Karent's life. She's also an utterly contemptible compulsive liar.
Latin no less! So impressive. But to what exactly does she give unwarranted importance (or weight?). Just interested in where you're going with this.
She should of attacked you, if it means you waking up and smelling the coffee. You LOVE to see others suffer-it's sick. Your life will never be happy-if you don't change that. And for your sake and your son's..I sincerely hope you do. All the suit cases-all for attention-as if you could afford that in your INDEPENDENCE. Right, lucky BRAVO gives you a stylist-is more like-take advantage-that's YOUR style-NOT Karents -she WORKS for what she has-you could learn a LOT from her. I'm being completely serious.
With all due respect, it's obvious you've been hurt in the past and have 'trust' issues, myself as well, from past experiences. I have enjoyed this season more than the first. I was surprised that you were really coming unglued and saying such negative comments, repeatedly towards Karent and Joanna. Trust me, I do not condone everyone's behaviours as each episode airs.
With all that is going on in the 'real world', hunger, homes lost, children with cancer etc.....(and having watched the entire franchise from day one) why and how you can be so consumed with what people wear, pack all those suitcases and yet, forget your 'passport' of all things. Are you that shallow to discuss in your blog, that 'fashion' is like 'art' as if you felt the need to 'explain' perhaps your outlook on what is important and what is not. It spoke volumes about your insecurities as a woman whom you make clear is so intellligent, speaking 5 languages, and this boat your wonderful fiance is working his tail off to impress and make you happy, you complain.
I also noticed, you never took off your sunglasses the entire time, till dinner, when you were late once again. Point is, being vain, worried about your looks, and all the clothes you could show off on the trip, is a sign of 'something' deep and I would hate to see you lose a good man because you need to work on 'yourself,' period.
really thats all you have to say about this episode? i mustve been watching another show where the highlight was you overpacking. i thought this would be an episode where youd act less callous than your usual but i was wrong. you were the most eager of the bunch to unload this bomb on karent. you almost seemed giddy! and when you spat out how in your case everyone knew about the cheating while you looked like a fool, which you were all reenacting for karents benefit...well thats when i realized the dangerous type of snake you are.
@jesssays You are so right about how she couldn't wait to drop that bomb on Karent.. almost foaming at the mouth like a wild dog! Makes me sick...really a sad sad excuse for a woman, that needs to feed off of others misery! But they do say MISERY loves company, so that is Adrianna A MISERABLE SAD AGING WOMAN!!
I do not care for you to be honest. However I really felt watching this that you did want to do the right thing and let Karent know about the cheating. I believe that you really did feel for her. However I think that you went about it in the wrong way and then to top it all off you really wanted a reaction. I think you started off in the right place doing the right thing, but in the end you just wanted to start a show / watch a show. I little class would of been nice. I can not believe that if it was you, you would of wanted to find out that way with people around that do not really care for you?? I felt sad for you ladies that felt the need to make this into a big thing infront of everyone.
Why is this show is still on? It is the longest within the franchise and it is just awful! Please, Bravo, please!!!
You are such a a lovely person when you are with Frederic and his parents. With the girlfriends.....not pretty. Really not a pretty a person. I think you should concentrate on being in a relationship with Frederic and getting that right, then open yourself up to friendships. you aren't really capable of both.
Funny you mentioned how ugly Joanna gets when she drinks but what 's your excuse? You get ugly cold sober. By the way thanks for the comical relief. Watching you waltz into the airport with all that luggage but NO PASSPORT. I was in tears!! LMAO!! The expression on your face when you were denied boarding was priceless.
I know remember how ugly she was at the Black Gala saying that Joanna was a Super Whore!
You and Alexia (and maybe even Leah) all seemed to take pleasure in the fact that Karent was going to find out about Rodolfo's indiscretion. I don't care for Karent but that is just evil. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, especially seeing how much Karent did care for Rodolfo. I'm glad that she found out the truth about this scumbag, but why couldn't Lisa ALONE tell Karent. Why were you all in the room?? (other than to see her face) Karent couldn't hide the fact that she was upset, it was quite clear with her fake smile. Who would want to be vulnerable in front of women who have shown nothing else but that they can't stand her?? You are no friend or decent person. Your actions spoke louder than your words.
The A-Team plus 1 strikes again. Alexia, Adriana, Ana and Marysol. You all just could'nt wait to wipe Karent smile off her face. How sad.
Sorry but I think most of the comments on here are the mean girls. Both you and Joanna got carried away with the bitch talk, but you tried to take the high road and get away from her. I know myself well enough to know if someone came charging up behind me screaming and grabbed my shoulder I would without thinking turn and swing. Joanna should have backed off. She is a horrible when she drinks and thinks she is entitled to say and do as she wishes.
Would you also lie to anyone who would listen about how the whole thing went down? This woman is dilusional to tell a total lie about what happened at the lingerie party knowing a camera crew was following her around. The story she told Alexia was laughable it was so off base. People drink all the time in social settings and some get obnoxious yes, but that does not give anyone the right to get violent and punch someone.
You never cease to amaze. Do you enjoy playing the victim? I seriously believe that I have never seen a more evil face than the one I saw when you punched Joanna in the face. The fact that you can still play the victim and be thankful that Joanna did not attack you is laughable. Grow up, take responsibility for your actions and change your ways and maybe you will be able to recoup some credibility.
Karina1983 NYCrealrealhousewife Actually, there is no evidence that Joanna touched her. Unless you're privy to another camera aim that the rest of us viewers were not, it appeared she heard Joanna approaching immediately behind her, became enraged at what Joanna was saying, turned around and sucker punched her.
Adrieana didn't stop there, she continued after Joanna like some kinda cray cray. Watched it today and Adrieana had the most distorted look on her face, and it took several people to hold her back from continuing with her assault. Joanna was backing away.
And, Ummm, no lol. If someone just " touches you" with your back turned, slugging them in the face would not be called "self defense" but, umm, you go ahead and try that sometime and see where it gets you :).
Anywho - Adrieanna, you seriously have no class, so whatever comes out of your mouth isn't a big surprise. If it makes ya feel any better, I consider Joanna and Marta cry babies, Alexiae would be "Alexiae who?". (This lady is an Editor of a mag?)
I don't like Karent. She manipulates as much as the rest of you, but hell I don't know why you ladies can't admit you weren't going to allow Karent to walk away from that little get away with any amount of dignity, and you guys were going to savore every minute of her humiliation.
Lisa tried to buffer, you 4 weren't having it, and you and ol'Marysol want to try and throw Lisa under the bus.
When are you housewives gonna learn that we viewers believe what we see. That's the proof of what took place. THAT'S the evidence. You can't rewrite what we see to how you want us to see it. Doesn't work that way.
BTW, packing 20 suitcases for a few days just means your either sekf centered, or emotionally unable to make decisions. The fact that you call it "Art" cracks me up. Lol
Karina1983 NYCrealrealhousewife If anyone can show where Joanna put her hand on Adriana then I stand corrected. To date, the footage does not show any physical contact initiated by Joanna.
Adriana, i think u're mean girl and disgusting! U, Alexia and Ana know very well what u did to Karent. Nobody deserves to be treated like that! U girls give women a very bad name! Disgusting!
Fashion by Adriana,
Your fashion is on point and I never looked at it before but fashion is just like art. Of course you are one of the most artistic housewives on the Bravo Network. I forgot that quick how pretty Joanna turns into ugly Joanna when she drinks, so I fully understand why you were cautious. But as we all seen you can handle yourself when you need too.
Even though at this point you and Karnet are not the best of friends at this point I do not believe you and the other ladies was getting any kind of pleasure tell her then one she loves is cheating on her.I am glad that Alexis and Lisa told her gently. You know Karnet better then any of us so you must have already known she was going into denial but deep down I know she believed he was cheating.
I Loved the Outfit You showed up in to Bimini... As far as the Cheating? Who Cares... I think she had a feeling, but was showing denial... Oh Well--- I'd rather know too. At least You got to have Your Vacation with No Drunk Joanna Drama...
