As promised, my recipe of the week…
3 cups chilled guava nectar
2 cups Malibu rum
2 cups passion fruit nectar
Fresh mint leaves (for garnish)
1 ½ cups chilled ginger ale
1 ½ cups chilled mineral water
1 lime, thinly sliced
Combine the guava nectar, rum, and passion fruit in a punch bowl or pitcher, add the ginger ale, mineral water and lime to the juice and rum mixture and stir. Divide among serving glasses with ice and garnish with mint leaves.
Until next time,
Anna, you are the one who asked Roman what is going on with Adriana and Karante. You know Joanna was pretty drunk and you know how she would feel about Karante being attacked. Your an attorney and you can analyze things well. You basically set up Joanna for your own entertainment. You are very sneaky.
You didnt ask yourself the one question everyone is dying to know!!!!!
"Do I think that Joanna is lying about sleeping with Joe Francis"......YES!!!!
You're a class act. Maybe you could teach the girls a few lessons on "class"....most importanly the people who will throw down in the middle of a charity event. I know you latin women are crazy...but what's Joanna's excuse?
I never thought I would here "Termino como la fiesta del Guatao" on Bravo!!!! Loved it!!!
You do realize that you had a big hand in starting all the Karent hate, right? You all need to grow up. Been to Miami many times, never realized it was filled with such immaturity and high school mean girl mentality. Stirring the pot and then sitting back is just as classless as taking the bait and running with it.
Why don't you stop joining in on the gossip about Karent? I can't believe how immature all of you women are!!
Ana, In your interview you stated that people walk all over your ex husband. Who in the world would hire a lawyer with comments like this .............I wouldn't.
Really? This whole "I hate Karent" club started with you talking about her personale situation as way into the group. I wouldve found this "real" if you wouldve blog same way when it was Alexia who interrupted conversation, when you stopped all the previous silly cmments about articles, when you stopped talking about Karent behind her back...oh wait, that never happened!
Just bcs you sat in a corner w a smile on ur face while it all unfolded, does NOT make your innocent of it all. Shame on you!
Rodofo is no longer with Karent,guess she was right he preffers younger women! what's funny is that he would tell her to "stop talking about the ladies let's talk about us " he saiid ! UM didn't anyone tell him he was in the "ladies show" that he was irrelevant not the ladies !
Does Joanna have a drinking problem? I think so.
Did she have it coming? yes
Is she the crazy girl? yes
Is Karent responsible for most of the fights that night? yes
Is Karent fake? yes
You forgot some of the important questions. But you pretty much summed it up correctly. Remember Karent was the one accusing you of wanting her boyfriend through her fake smile.
Joanna is out of control when she drinks her boyfriend and sister look like they have had it with her. She's embarrassed her boyfriend almost in every episode.
You write the best blogs and I appreciate your honesty and viewpoint. I think you got it right.
I am a young female attorney with her own private practice and I love to cook! I admire you, I relate to you! Thank you for being a positive role model to so many! Stay class my friend!
Everyone on this show has done their part to stir the pot and there are many episodes left. I am going to wait before i put my hand on the fire for anyone else and end up with egg on my face because anything can happpen. I like individuals not teams so I like Ana and Joanna but can't stand Alexis. I think Karent acts ridiculous and is just so fake. And Lisa is just adorable. The rest I can take'em or leave em.
I can answer your stupid question... You started it all!!! By bringing negative comments about Karent among everyone in the first episodes. Of course now you are backing off and looking shocked! Oh please. You stirred the pot and now you are watching it boil.... good job
I like this Q&A a LOT better. Ratatattat and clash! Makes the points and holds up the mirror!
P.S. Three more questions.... Considering how maliciously the ladies spoke of Karent (to her face, and behind her back) regarding the ‘botox for brains’ article, is it incumbent upon them to apologize to Karent (given the journalist's statement that Karent did not say those words)? Yes. Will any of the ladies apologize (or simply acknowledge to themselves that an apology is warranted)? Probably not. Do viewers like seeing people treated like that? Not at all.

I agree with you regarding how unfairly Karent's been treated, not least by Ana and I agree with your responses to your question 2&3.
However, do they owe (incumbent on them, you say) to apologize? Not in my book. Has nothing to do with magazine. SHOULD they, out of common decency...Yeah, I think so. But that would presume they've each in their own little hearts found either a kernel of forgiveness or, and this more to the point and least likely, they've discovered how wrong they've been.
Rockerman Milica Seriously, what is up with no one on this show admitting they behaved or spoke poorly? I've never seen anything like it! A mark of character is admitting when you're wrong. That's what allows for growth, change, and the opportunity for new and better relationships (with ourselves and with others). The insistence on making petty excuses, or leveling really trite examples in order to defend bad behavior is really disappointing. If someone says, "that's what makes good television" -- I disagree! I love these shows for the resolutions that happen, and for people owning their mistakes. Because we ALL make them.

Joanna is just out of control. It's just amazing how someone so beautiful can really start to look ugly just from her behavior. She acts like a spoiled child!
Tori_66 Milica Brandl111 Rockerman I like Joanna. I think she has more integrity and honesty than most of the other ladies put together. She might have a drinking problem (I can't say if she does or doesn't) and she might be a little ridiculous, but she stands up for what is right and shows disappointment in herself when she's wrong. In watching Adriana explain the fight to Alexia, and watching Alexia's reaction, I had the feeling they were unreachable in their delusion of who they are, how they behave, and how they treat people. I am not trying to level a low blow here, but to be honest, It was like watching two teenagers. Trying to reason with teenagers is difficult, but possible; hence, I hold out hope for everyone...
Brandl111 Tori_66 Milica Rockerman
I agree with you. Alexia is a nasty woman, relishing the gossip and then getting up to leave when Karent checks in with Joanna. Adriana is clearly anxious, repeating her self defense lie. There's some solace in that at least. All in all, a tiresome bunch. Elsa and Lea saved the day.
I just don't get why Karent needs to defend Joanna as she said, but yet did not defend her pocket gay when Lisa wanted him to leave.
I agree with you in all Q and A's .... I will add that Adriana may be highly upset with Karent for stealing the moment "beating her to the tweet", then Joanna does have reasons for being upset with Adriana due to the flirtation she had with Romain, then Adriana took it to heart what Karent said in the article. Adriana had no need to speak with karent at the events and of course the smile kills her....
ibis Adriana feels like she brought Karent to the group, as a result, Karent should "know her place". Ridiculous.
You make a good point about reasons Joanna would be upset w/ Adriana. As far as flirting with Romain...he looked like he was grossed out by Adriana. It's not Adriana she needs to worry about...
I definitely find you to be my favorite in the Miami bunch. You are sweet but you are not a pushover and you are very level-headed despite the things that go on in your social situations. Just a very classy woman; I like it. :)
I can answer your question: "how does one allow a situation to escalate to the point of no return?" Easily when they have people instigating before events. Adriana is no saint but neither are you. Shame, shame, shame...
Last week's two-part episode was WILD, to say the least. So many people did so many things wrong on so many levels, that I won't even try to comment. I will just say that Ana, you hit the nail on the head with your observations and I couldn't agree more with you. You are not only beautiful, intelligent and talented, but are also the voice of reason and a class act as compared to most of the other crazy women in the cast (not naming names). You always bring dignity and class and never lower yourself to some of the trashy standards that many others on the show often do. For that, as well as many other reasons, I have the utmost respect for you and your family. It's no wonder many in the gay community see you as the classy diva that you are and look up to you . I know I do and love every moment you are on camera. Your friendship and loyalty to Marysol and Alexia are genuine and heartfelt. Many of the other ladies should follow your example.
I thought the SAME THING! Kudos to Romain for keeping his cool! Karent dragging Joe over to Joanna with Romain standing there was complete negligence! Are you kidding me? Romain really proved himself here. Although Joanna being miss diva again was asking for it to get physical in any one of the fights she involved herself in.
Negligence? That's a bit a strong. I saw a loyal friend doing a loyal act and trusting their relationship. Romeo was cool so no need to worry any longer. A relief I'm sure.
3rd page assesment of Karent is genious! Can't say the other ladies aren't guilty of taking the drama and running with it but Karen't is the negligent pot stirer in the bunch! She may not mean to be damaging but boy does she add gasoline to the fire! Honestly, for someone who is mature and a professional (and has a publicist) I expect her to have sharper social etiquette.
Clearly you were cast as the voice of reason. Every city has one but usually they are not as hot as you. Keep up the good work!
Here's the thing BRAVO when they decide to put a camera on you in the women group setting, you seem to dropping bias undertones in regards to Karent. Than you sit back and watch and play peacemaker. You asked Adrianna if she was going to bring up the article to Karent. Knowing how important the function was to Lisa, it seems the goodness in you would have told Adrianna to take it up another time. I'm still not understanding yours, Alexia, and Adrianna's hatred of Karent. It can't be over a silly article where the comments seems to be grouped and not even specifically naming an individual. How about you trying being what you want us to perceive you as, and have a civil unbias talk with Karent.
What bias undertones? In the group setting she was being nice to Karent. Too nice IMHO - everyone else was mean to Karent and she made a joke about the article. The only thing I saw her doing in the group scene was giving heartfelt advice to Joanna- which thankfully Joanna admitted her mistakes.
Yeah there are Karent haters and Anna haters. Yet both have made side comments about each other. I don't think either is jealous of the other but they don't exactly bond. So what? Lets move on...
Everyone on this show has an "AGENDA". Even the people on this forum do. Yours is definitely to engratiate yourself to wannabe celebrities who consider you nothing more than a silly t-shirt in a thumbnail. Don't kid yourself sir. No one appreciates it and it only makes you look creepy
You were doin fine until you said "no one appreciates..." Don't be speaking for the world, ducks. It's a lot bigger than you fink. And who would those wannabe celebs be? Trust me, ingratiating's not the word.
I know you are refering to all the circus activities that happened at Lisa's charity event. I wished you would have broke things down the same after Alexia's Venue event. At least Karent exited with courage and grace.
You are a good addition to the show...it's too bad that the drama queens get most of the air time and publicity. Hope you don't go that route. Joanna's WWHL show was a disaster for her. There she was, LIVE, being herself for all to see. She is currently getting hammered on her blog. (Run Romain Run!)
I agree! I am behind and haven't even see the Adriana slap but reading about it and seeing little clips makes me want to get off this RH train. I can't take it. I want to see beautiful classy ladies living glam lives in Miami not cat fighting and pulling eachother's hair! The diva's seem so shallow. Anna and Alexia show me they are multi dimensional. The others could be any other members of a catty social scene clawing their way on top of the other!
Greetings Ana! It's so refreshing to read your blogs. I admire that you are a Cuban professional who has not only mastered the legal gig, but the kitchen as well. I am a Cuban-American who lives in NY and truly aspire to become as strong a woman as you. It's amazing that ofcourse I side with all the Cubans on the show, but of all you are my favorite. You tell it like it is without ever offending or insulting, and that is truly commendable. Ana, you are definitely the voice of reason on this season and it is a pleasure to be able to communicate that to you.
I have to say Ana, yours is the best blog after this crazy episode. Being a lawyer, you are extremely clear thinking and neutral, which is great, and your assessment I believe was pretty accurate! I hope you get some more air time this season, hopefully some dates?? :) You seem like a great woman that deserves to be happy...and your daughters are hilarious!
