When Romain finally made it to the volleyball tournament, my heart was racing as I didn't know how the conversation was going to go, but I tried to play it cool and just try to understand where he is coming from and take blame for what happened. I know all he ever wants to do is protect me, and Romain tried to come to my defense when Adriana was in my face in Lisa's kitchen for one reason and one reason only: he was TRYING TO SEPARATE her from getting too close to me and trying to hurt my face as it is the way I make my money AND CAN SUPPORT MY FAMILY… for no other reason but that to make sure she doesn't try to hurt my face.
Romain knows I am a strong person and can take care of myself, or at least I think I can since I helped raise my sister from a real young age in order help out my mom and then my dad when he came from Poland. I was always the little adult and when Romain tried to come to my defense, I didn't want his help -- actually, I didn't want anyone's help because Adriana was out of line and I wasn't just going to let her attack me and call me names and get away with it, as i had never done anything wrong to her to speak to me that way. Since the moment I met her she wasn't friendly towards me. All I felt from her was hate. I never have met this woman till the Ocean Drive wine tasting at Smith & Wollensky through Lisa. From the moment I met her she just seemed like a bitter person that I hoped that maybe eventually with time she would allow herself to show a warm sweet side to her. I was going to give her that chance since no one is perfect, and sometimes it takes me a while to warm up and trust others, but maybe she was just intimidated with the new girls in the group and needed some time to get used to it as she wasn't the center of attention, and maybe that's what the issue was from the beginning… having friends isn't a competition, but it seems to her and some of the other girls in the group that is all a competition, and I really am still trying to figure out the point of it. Isn't friendship based on trust and having each other's back and being kind to one another? Otherwise, why have friends when they act more like your enemies?
Alexia inviting all the girls to her home made me think it will be a nice peaceful evening where we all act like adults, and admit our faults, and just laugh, and have a wonderful time, and make fun of the immature things we have done in the last days, and move away from it, and focus on the future. But boy was I wrong. The mean girls are at it again -- surprise, surprise -- I can't sit back and watch my friend or loved one get bullied and harassed by mean girls without at least speaking out. I have never been around such vicious and mean-spirited women. Why do they spend all their energy on Karent or talking behind my back? i am so occupied with my life that I don't even have time to think about what the others are doing, let alone worry about some little tiny article IN A LOCAL PAPER! To me, life is about a lot more than this, and these girls are getting out of hand. I know i am not perfect and never said I was. I am the first to admit my faults, and I know when I drink I become more vocal and don't hold back if someone tries to attack me, but it seems with Adriana and Alexia this is a never-ending story. I don't understand why some of these women, like Adriana and Alexia, focus so much energy on Karent or myself because if they only spent all that energy on themselves, their lives can be more fulfilled. It's not as if they have to keep picking at other girls in the group. I guess it makes them feel better about themselves as I just can't figure out any other reason for it. Act lke grown women. Why did Adriana have to speak Spanish and talk badly about the way I was dressed? I was dressed to a gala? Really, Adriana, is your life so lame and boring that you have NOTHING ELSE TO TALK ABOUT AND BE OBSESSED ABOUT THAN ME? Come on -- why do you care so much what I do and what i wear? Plus, other girls were wearing beautiful dresses also. How was mine any different? Again, evil-spirited mean girl speaking out. Actions speak louder than words and Adriana is showing her true colors to everyone. There is no excuse for being a bully. Alexia and Adriana should set good examples instead of putting their energy into talking like grade school girls or high school students at the table calling Karent and me names…. Grow up, girls. Life is too short, and I won't stoop to your levels again. I am happy, and I wish you the same to find it within yourself because that's obviously missing and it shows clearly. Remember: life is what you make of it.
You are SUCH an amazing role model, and I think all celebrities should use their status to spread awareness and fight for a cause like you do. You are beautiful inside and out.
I didn't know who you were until the RHOM show and then googled you to learn more. I really like you and think you are sweet and a little vulnerable. You wear your heart on your sleeve. It is wonderful that you support PETA and their efforts to help animals. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you and your sister on the show.
I am so glad that you are speaking out for our family pets. I have a little Chihuahua that we all in the family adore. Thanks for using this platform to reach out to everyone obout how our beloved friends are getting treated by some. Children and animals have have no defense against evil people. I think that you are doing a wonderful job trying to save their lives.
About the cast, I can tell you to stick with people that have good energy and the rest just stay away.
Joanna, you are a rare gem, beautiful inside and out. It's a sad truth in this world, but there are too many ugly, jealous people like Adriana and Alexia around, that can't stand true beauty when they see it. Adriana thought she was the pretty one until you came along, and made her look like the ugly troll that she is in comparison. Her inner ugliness shows through her not so pretty face. It's obvious she can't stand that you have such a wonderful handsome fiance as Romain, too. He really loves you a lot Joanna, it showed the most in the way he handled her when she was making a pass at him, and the way he defended you at Lisa's party - and also last episode when he grabbed you and kissed you on the beach. I hope you're still together, there's a lot of love there between you.
Just try to remember when dealing with people like Adriana, that you don't have to stick up for yourself. They just make themselves look worse when they act that way and awfulness spews from their mouth. Everyone can see that, nobody decent agrees with their words. We all know what an awesome person you are. You don't have to defend yourself, just walk away. You're lucky that you have the camera to speak your mind to if you need to get it off your chest, just don't waste your energy on scum like that. As you could see, she was just dying to hurt your face. The greatest strength and power you can show is not in fighting back, but in having the strength to walk away.
We all have faults, and have done things we regret in the past. Whatever mistakes you may have made does not make you a bad person. It only shows you are human like the rest of us. What matters is how we overcome those mistakes to become the person we are today. I hope the mean people of this world don't ruin your beautiful spirit. I wish the best for you.
girl u better develope thicker skin...I love that u stick up for urself but girl get some thicker skin ur toooooooo immature for some the nonsense that goes on.
Hahahaa WOW there is so much hate and jealousy towards Joanna even on her blog seeing the ignorant comments below. If you dislike her why the hell are on her blog then? Get a life. And how do u criticize where she chooses to donate her time and money, wtf have you done @porque? Oh yea sry no one cares who are u again?! Yall need to get a life and kudos to you Joanna u are beautiful on the inside and out and u love ur fans and reply back and we appreciate it! #TeamJoanna
What type of Jacket is your grandfather wearing? Is that Real Leather with wool Lining? or Synthetic? Same with his shoes? Leather? or not?
Sweet blog about animal awareness! Your so good to your sister, I hope she realizes it! I would not turn my head around Adriana, she is so full of it! She is one of the most discusting women on TV. I think you are sweet and I also agree with you about those nut cases all attacking Karent at that so called "peace party". Marysol is so full of herself, and Ana just agrees with whatever Adriana and the crazy blonde who had that hellish party say. Those women cannot be trusted. So what if you have a few drinks? You obviously hate watching people bully others like that. It would piss me off too to watch such women attack people the way they do. You have been quite accurate with the bullying by Adriana and her shadow Ana. Anyone who would have a party to discuss and go into attack mode like that is wrong period! They blow it all out of proportion! Adriana has been nasty all along. When she was refering to you as a super whore to that table of people shows how down and ugly she is.
I feed my dogs Acana too! The pink bag.
Thank you so much for supporting PETA! I love those photos you posted and please keep posting more! I am Team Joanna! I watched you on Dancing with the Stars and you have such grace. Your sister Marta is so cute and I do think you are very hard on her. But I also see the love you have for her and she must appreciate you taking care of her. Please watch how you treat her. That episode when she came to help you cook but you lashed out at her for no good reason. I think it's better she stay with Lisa so that you can have your time with your fiancee.
You are very immature, I can see why your fiance was looking for a way to walk away. You have alot of growing up to do. I feel bad for your poor sister too. You love the DRAMA! Turn it down tired of hearing it already.
I just love you for speaking out and being a voice for the animals. There is so much animal abuse that takes place wether it is in the research labs, slaughterhouses or fur farms that I applaud you for your caring and concern.
Wow. How lovely that you donate to the less fortunate (human and animal alike). It shows that you are a kind person. That's great BUT it doesn't make you perfect. You are a terrible friend unless you are being catered to and you just don't listen to others. Ever.
I was favorably impressed with the way you seemed to want to make peace with Adriana. I was disappointed when you sat and watched a disgusting pig of a man verbally attack an elderly woman....and said nothing. You with the big motor mouth. That man is pure evil.
seriously what kind of friend is Karen to you ???????????????? please please please wake up
Joanna you are a gorgeous woman and it is sad that Adriana is so jealous of you. Flirting with your fiance is just no class! You are one of my faves on here!
1. Where is your reaction to the dinner party mentioned in headline?
2.. You look a thousand times better and healthier in the natural photos above.
3. Have you ever visited, volunteered at, or donated to the Miami shelter? Clearly the shots above do not reflect the condition of our local "refuge".
4. Speaking of making a difference, you mention in your earliest episodes (don't know now), that Miamians should get ready for a new, refreshing social group who lends great "difference" to this city. What are the differences you feel you are lending/leading? What are the "old guard" status quo issues you think should change?
Were you drunk when you wrote this post? With all your obsessive hatred of Adriana coming through in CAPITAL letters no less, it doesn't look like you were sober.
No amount of donations, no photos with puppies, no special pleading is going to change your past. Own up to your failure to control your anger when you drink and quit drinking. Recognize that you started the altercation with Adriana, she fled your abusive behavior to avoid the conflict, you ran after her, you grabbed her. You are at fault.
I heard you were consulting a lawyer to sue. I hope you do so that you end up paying Adriana for the court costs when they decide you were at fault. The evidence is on film and it's only your own hatred that prevents you from seeing the awful truth - you are one of those people who cannot be trusted with alcohol.
It's not a moral failing if you just recognize it and quit drinking. There are some people for whom alcohol is poison. Recognize that your body chemistry cannot handle it. Quit drinking. Get some help dealing with your rage. Then, and only then, should you think of marriage.
I was happy that you did say something to that man TK . He was awful to you and I'm glad you stood up for Romain without loosing it. TK is degrading and disgusting and you and Ana are the only ones who said anything, all the women should've walked out and the way he spoke to Elsa so horrible. Karent is really not your friend you always have her back and she didn't return the favor. She was to busy kissing TK's ass.
Joanna Darling; Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck it back in. - You are very beautiful, but when you just go off on people and then act like a victim and all indignant.... Look at yourself in the last 3-4 episodes and remember not everyone is a hater some of us are just giving you an honest opinion. And will you please stop blabbing about how you had never got in a pyshical fight in your entire life! You know my mom always says people watch your actions more than your words. Act in such a way that if someone was to say any different they won't believe it. -
You have no backbone! You walked away from the table after Ana bravely defended herself... You should have walked away when you fiancé was being ridiculed. It was rediculous to see you return to the table and suck up to TK... I was glad Leah and TK put you in your place. Oh, and no one is obsessed with you! You're delusional.
Joanna, I havent really been happy with you this season but today I was so proud of you! You acted like a lady and did the right thing to leave that party. Thomas was extremely rude and you did not deserve that treatment and neither did Elsa or Ana. I am surprised that anyone stayed after all that. Keep up the good spirit. Was happy to see you try to work things out with Adrianna. I'm rooting for all the ladies and happy to see you in a different light today. Shame on Thomas Kramer!!!!
Are you kidding me? She left the table to take a tantrum like a 2 year old child as she usually does and then returned to the party and kissed Thomas Kramers Butt. If she was really going to stick up for her fiances reputation (which is a joke) she would have left and not come back. This girl doesn't know how to act like a lady.
Honestly, If I was a friend of hers I would have taken her a side along time ago and said get rid of this loser. He is definitely cheating on you. Her sister has tried so hard to help her with her relationship and all Joanna does is treat her sister like garbage. I feel horrible for her sister. Joanna is just to self absorbed.
You are such an idiot. Can you not see your boyfriend doesn't care about you and that he is sleeping with the world. You need to stop drinking. We are tired of seeing your get drunk and start crying. You only cry because you know he's cheating and you should move on but you won't do it.
@yancybox OMG you have no idea what you're talking about. No one knows what happens behind closed doors. It's clear though that there are genuine feelings there. Grow some compassion it would serve you well.
You are absolutely adorable. Don't change a thing -except the drinking part! lol
It's beautiful to see you take care of your sister like a mom -she's lucky to have you -and you her. Stick with the nice girls -those other haters are just the WORST. I feel sorry for them.
AS a makeup artist myself -I love models who are MORE than just a pretty face -and you are, in the best possible way.
I find it a little odd that Joanna and her sister, as adults having difficulty transitioning to actual adulthood with adult relationships and functions, seem to insist on remaining together only to abuse each other verbally ( I hope!). I agree with Lisa's interpretation of Joanna's need to focus on her adult relationship with Romain and make a solid choice. Loving and supporting a sister (older or younger) is great and to be admired, but I don't see the growth (both are quite far along in girl years) or genuine support. Looking forward to meeting the family (especially women) to better learn the details of this mutually unhealthy interdependence. I wish I'd asked Camille Paglia's view on this last night.
I love Joanna! I think you are great and absolutely gggoooorrrgeeeeousss! Like stunning drop dead gorgeous :) Your stance for PETA and defending those without a voice is one I share and it's so commendable that you are using the RHOM as a platform to educate others. I get you.
The others need to stop hating. They are jealous and who wouldn't be. To see Adrianna flirt with your fiance and get turned down in such a humiliating way was sad but hilarious at the same time. Romain seems good for you and listen to him ..... stop drinking because it makes you out to be a drunk crazy person, when you have a big generous heart, beauty, and brains.
You stick up for your friends and you stick up against animal cruelty. I despise this Vick football person for what he did to those beautiful pit bulls and can not believe he has a "pet" for his kids now.
Hello Joanna, You wrote a great blog because thats how most of the viewers feel about her Adianna,to me she is just jealous and she always made nasty comments in season one but now is clear as day this is the way she is.She was repeating what that Dumb JF was saying about you like she is not an immigrant, we all are she is dumb.She could speak five languages but has no use for it speaks negative but not positive.I hope you enjoy your trip and your family.Is good to share info for people to help and do good to others we all know that more than ever in NYC with this hurricane.
LOVE YOU JOANNA! You're not perfect, but I do appreciate your passion for everything you believe in. I also love how you stick up for yourself and your friends (Karent) when those other miserable cows try to start bullying you girls. How pathetic is it for grown women to act like "Mean Girls", they must play and study that movie constantly. Either way, you're so fun and great to watch! Wish you and Roman the best! Looking forward to seeing more of you this season!
Anyone who is honestly genuine about giving to those in need doesn't need to photo op with the animals she's helping. What's with the picture of all the stuff you're donating? Its tacky...like your behavior this season. You are the epitome of an angry drunk. Your fiance is right, if you can't hold your liquor, don't drink. You looked like an idiot from beginning to end at Lisa's house, and it was obviously you who started the fight with Adrianna...sorry. You act like a spoiled brat, and bring up your childhood struggles like its your job ( as if you're the only one who immigrated with nothing...which is complete bullshit), but in my opinion, the worst thing is how you treat your sister. My sister is my best friend and my world, and I would NEVER speak to or behave the way you do to her. It actually makes me angry. If you're smart, you'll realize how special and important that relationship is before it's too late. Get it together or you'll lose your sister and your hot fiance.
I agree completely, I am not saying this to be mean, but the sad part of all of this is joanna does not seem like a smart person at all. She is so horrible to her sister that it is almost embarrasing to watch. Why do you feel the need to show all of us what you donated and where? To me I see it as an oppurtunity for you to try and make yourself look good.
Joanna asked her sister for help to make dinner for romaine and then critisized her badly for everything she did. Who does that?
When your sister is going out of her way to help you make dinner for a man you just showed E-mails of him spreaking to another woman.
You should be treating your sister like gold and not like she is a person you just hired off the street.
Joanna stay with the I love animals (not that I even believe that) I feel your just a nasty person.
Thank you for all you do in caring, loving and protecting animals. You have a big heart and it truly shows.
I have seen BULLYING on this show and it is YOU the way you talk to your sister is disgusting.Marta stop or you wont have a sister I believe thats what you said ( oh but you had been drinking) to many excuses ,inside you are very ugly!!!!!!But everyone who doesnt agree with you is jealous I dont like you at all Stay in Poland
DonnainSouthCarolina Wow - stay in Poland?? did you really just say that? Shows how classy you are. Calling the kettle black much?
Oh good grief. You were a mess at that party. Who didn't you have a problem with? You were a nasty piece of work.. Marisol, Joe, Lea, and Adrianna. Adrianna didn't want to fight with you. She was talking to that creepy Karent. You busted in and raised the volume on their talk. None of the nastiness would have happened without Karent starting it, and you raising it to insane levels..all evening long.
Yeah you're pretty, but if I were your boyfriend I wouldn't marry you for nothing, you think you own the world now, remember where you come from.
'remember where you come from' what the hell is that supposed to mean? is that some crack about immigrants? fyi all "americans' come from the slums of europe even if theyarrived 100+ years ago. you are no better than anyone to put people in their place so to speak. get over yourself.
It is was refreshing to see how you, Karent and Lisa are such beautifull women and how inteligent, caring and down to earth you are, and specially how good friends you are.
You three are the best of this season, the rest.....well they are just bad energy.
You are awesome. You should really not let Adrianna put you down or affect you anymore. Who is she anyways! She is jealous of you, it is obvious. She hates her life and sees you as better! Don't let it get to you and take the high road. Dont stoop to her low class level.
