I am not proud of myself for letting alcohol get me that out of hand, but the next morning (when we discussed it on the beach), not only did I feel horrible that I ruined Romain’s 10-year anniversary party, but deep inside I feel like it had to do with a lot more than just the drinking and Marta’s ex…
I feel that Romain has been distant for a while, and maybe when I was at Mynt and had way too much to drink, it just sparked a lot of emotions because of what we were going through. I couldn't find a way to communicate, and I just exploded at Mynt… I don't have all the answers, but I knew something was wrong and I don't want us to fall apart because we can’t get on the same page with communication. I haven't been in Miami a lot, so maybe that adds to the tension between us, and maybe he is just caught up with work. I guess that only time will tell where we stand.
To me friends are important, but there were many times where I had girlfriends and I felt that they had my back and later backstabbed me, so I try to stay cautious with women that I don't know very well. But right off the bat I hit it off with Karent, and I adore her. Not only is she beautiful and smart, but also seems to have a big heart, and I feel bad that other girls are trying to bully her with the whole Rodolfo texting situation. Sometimes I feel that people should just mind their own business (unless you have concrete proof), but for her sake I hope that Rodolfo truly loves her, because she deserves the best -- it’s hard to find a kind-hearted girl like her. When she and her mom had that conversation, how close she and her mom are melted my heart and reminded me a lot of my mom and me. No one has your back as much as your mom, and they want the best for you, so I hope that Karent takes her mom’s advice.
Lisa and Lenny are so adorable together, and I really hope and pray that Lisa will get her dream and get pregnant. They would make precious little ones and she would be a great mother.
Joanna! You are beautiful inside and out. Go find yourself a man that is your equal. It won't ever work until you find the one who is on the same page. Romain just isn't your equal.
You are so beautiful, but it is a shame that it can't cover your awful personality. You are also painfully insecure with men. I think you should have single time and grow.
I think your relationship with Romain is sad. I would NEVER let a man speak to me on the beach as he did. When he said he would leave you if something like that happens again, I would of said BYE. Rise above the abuse and move on!!
Your so beautiful and women are going to be jealous of you but know that and rise above. Adrianna looked pathetic and you have it all over her and no worries so don't stoop to her level, her true colors are showing! I didn't like how your sister told the other girls about the phone call she's your sister and should of never did that so just watch out. And if you do things you regret while drinking or things you wouldnt of done if you weren't drinking that cause problems in your life it could be a problem. AA is a beautiful thing and really all about self improvement and finding higher power-I believe everyone can benefit from AA meetings not only alcoholics. Stay classy!
Nobody's perfect....if Joanna pretended to be perfect on the show then what's the point of reality TV? I bet some of you will still complain that she's too perfect blah blah. It's so hard to please everyone because there are so many people who are close minded, ignorant, critical and who are judgmental haters. We've ALL had drama when it comes to alcohol. Joanna had every right to be upset that her sister's cheater ex-boyfriend was there at Mynt especially after Marta said Joanna never stands up for her etc. Joanna was at Mynt to support Romain but she was also trying to support Marta at the same time etc. Joanna's stuck in the middle trying to please her sister and please her fiancé who both don't get along so please give her some credit here...Being in a relationship you have to accept the person for who they are and forgive them when they make a mistake. Yes the Mynt meltdown was drama but it happens to the best of us. And it's totally fine to remind your man that he's lucky to have you and that there are other guys lining up for you. It's not obnoxious or wrong. Joanna is beautiful and classy. Any photographer who takes pictures of Joanna for an art gallery would blow up the picture so big that it would be on a bigger canvas because Joanna is that beautiful.
Love love love you Joanna! I admit that when I first saw you my plan was to make sure I watched the show when boyfriend wasn't home! That has changed and in fact last night I invited my bf to watch the show with me and told him I wanted to show him the most beautiful woman in the world! He's a good man so he didn't go on to much about your beauty, lol! My change of heart came after watching just a couple shows. It is very evident to me that you are just as beautiful on the inside! I love the relationship you have with your sister, btw she is a beauty too! I think you are really down to earth and so funny!! I loved your reaction when Romain reminded you about throwing the tampons at the club, adorable!! Please ignore negative, mean comments and stay true to yourself!!!
You lack substance. You may be a very beautiful woman, but that's where it stops. Guy might be "lining up to be with you," but they would hit it and run. You don't seem to have much more to offer at this point
When one of the ladies said "there is no excuse for cheating, especially with the way Joanna looks." I thought how ignorant that anyone would think that looks are some sort of protection against infidelity. Why would people attribute cheating to the way anyone looks? Infidelity has a lot to do with an individual's insecurities and it's a dysfunctional attempt at getting emotional needs met, if even temporarily. Based on what i've seen so far it seems that all the women on this show seem to have serious issues with their self-image and self-esteem and you are no exception despite being a "model." It's a shame that the women on this show seem to think beauty can be purchased like anything else. Stop consuming and look within for try beauty and happiness.
Joanna, who cares about what others do or say! You are the hottest of all women in the world! Just be you!
I do think what you did was very wrong and you showed no class, I also think that instead of owning up to it you are trying to find excuses for what can not be excused. It was very high school to behave the way that you did simply because you were in the same room with your sisters ex. I also love my sisters very much and would do anything for them but there's a time and place for everything and frankly you blew it, blame it on alcohol if you want but you are an adult. I like you or what I've seen of you but I have to tell you that I think you have to grow up, the comments that you constantly tell your boyfriend about having men line up to get to you, well very high school. Now you can be insulted by what I'm telling you or you can take it as constructive criticism as was intended. Good Luck to you!
Is it just me that finds your sister to be a trouble maker. No wonder Roman have issues with her. Yikes she seems jealous of you. If my sister told me that she recieved a phone call like that I wouldnt have a smile on my face at all and I certainly wouldnt announce it to the world.
Art is Adriana's thing Karent just wants to be noticed, for example what dentist has a publiist.?? This was one of those times where she needs to know her place. And you looked like a drunken fool that night at the club, I was disapointed I didn't think a classy beautiful women like you would do that and I felt sorry for your boyfriend. I also think your sister is causing problems in your relationship but I know that part is hard cuz family always comes first. Stay cool I really like you and cool it with drinking. a few is ok just not much xoxo
Joanna, After watching the RHOM these first few episodes, I can see that your boyfriend will never marry you. The way you reacted to your sister's ex-boyfriend says to me that you have a problem with alcohol. You are young enough that you can benefit from AA sessions.
Oh just saying ... You're my favorite!!! I never really watched this group of housewives but thanks to you and Lisa , I'm glued every Thrs!!
I think you are insecure. Why does it bother you so much if Adriana was flirting? So what. You are a beautiful woman but you need to be more mature.
Joanna ~ Hang tight, girl. You're a super cute lady and bring a lot to the show. Ramain was pissed at you at Mynt and might have acted out .. He's in love with you. Ignore Adriana ~ She repulsive.
For someone who thinks she is so cultured, Adriana seems to have absolutely no class nor manners. Very childlike personality.
JoAnna, You are the reason I am tuning in for season 2. You are beautiful inside and out...and a great dancer! Why you were elimated from DWTS I'll never understand. I hope Romain marries you and gives you a beautiful life, if that is what you want. You and your sister crack me up! Cheers beautiful! And I look forward to watching you this season! Love, Kirsten :)
You shouldn't make the mistake of insinuating that a) you're more successful than Adriana or b) that she's unsuccessful. I don't think her issue with you has anything to do with jealousy, nor yours with her. Adriana is successful in her field, as you are in yours. You two just don't like each other. But you're as catty to/about her as she is you, so you might lay off a little
You are so pretty. Don't put up with that nonsense. There are a ton of better men out there for you.
Karent didn't know who the man was she just knew he must be famous trying to beat Adriana to the punch very immature of her.
I would just say she needs to make sure she eats a sandwich prior to drinking. I don't think she has a problem.
@Pualani There are times when the word of a random stranger just echos what you've been feeling in your gut and it allows an open door for conversation. If she'd already been worried, she could go to him with a phone call and judge his reaction, where she COULDN'T go to him and say, "my gut says you might be cheating on me." It's not an overreaction if she'd already been a bit worried about it. We don't know everything that happens behind the scenes or in their thoughts.
