My mom has always been my rock and an inspiration to me growing up. She didn’t allow any obstacles to get in her way, and she went through a lot after we emigrated from Poland. We had nothing, but she never gave up. She was a fighter and that is where I get my strong personality from as well as the fight inside me to never give up. To me, family is everything and I would do anything for my mom. She has always been my best friend, not only a mother. I feel I can speak with her about anything.
I have helped raise Marta since I was very young, but I don’t feel it took away from my childhood in any way. It made me stronger and caused me grow up faster, but I wouldn’t change it if I had the opportunity. I always wanted to be mama’s helper and never let her down. To this day that’s what I try to do, because I don’t believe I would be where I am if it wasn’t for her. If I didn’t have my fight, drive, and the thick skin, I probably would have given up on my dreams a long time ago; I wouldn’t be able to handle the rejections and vicious people. But instead I am living my dream now and achieving more and more success every year of my life. Sharing it with someone special like Romain makes it all so much better.
When I met Romain almost 6 years ago, he had nothing and was in debt, but I fell in love with him for his heart, the kind person he was, and for the way he treated my family. He adopted them as part of his own. I was always independent and I never had to rely on a man for money, which is why I didn’t care that Romain wasn’t rich. To me, life was about more than just money. I knew we would be fine, and now we are both living the American dream, but that doesn’t make our life any easier. More success means more headaches – jealousy, lies, rumors, etc. My life is definitely far from perfect, and each day I learn from my mistakes (because I have made plenty). But I guess that’s a normal part of life as long as you don’t make the same mistake twice.
Hi Joanna, You rock and wanted to ask you if what is the name of the pinkish white nail polish that you wear? You wore it in Bimini and wore it a lot throughout the show. I know you are a model and probably will not reveal your secret but I cannot find that beautiful color anywhere no matter where I go. Is it shellac? Please please? By the way you hang in there with those vicious girls! Thank you! J
Joanna...I think you are actually a really sweet girl and a beauty too. I am happy you and Roman are working things out, you seem to really be in love. Stay away from the mean girls..they are TOXIC. Especially Alexia, what a miserable person. Keep on being you!
Joana I love you and think that you are so beautiful but I think you need to stop drinking alcohol. Another side of you comes out and it is not a pretty one. I have lost some respect for you and wish that you get help before it is too late.
Joanna you're so gorgeous, If there is one advice that I have for you girls is don't let these people get to you. I'm just like you and wear my heart on my sleeve. You are amazing and can have it all. I wish you all the success in the world :)
You might get past the question of infidelity one day, but why should that be the goal you set for yourself with a new marriage, marriage changes everything, and nothing....it will change your status, but will it change the fact that your new husband had this vague kind of question of how involved he was with another woman...seriously, would any woman who made her own successful career path in life need to have these questions...the emailgate will always, always be a bone of contention....and if he uses social media at all, works with females, has time unaccounted for, you will not trust him......this is human nature...having children only complicates it if you want a monogamous relationship.....if you want children, you need to move on now, so that your life is unfettered, and capable of meeting someone who does not have that question looming in the air...that doubt will walk right down the marital aisle with you, and be in the delivery room when you have your first child, and will also be there during any milestone of your life together....don't put anymore time into this...cut it clean....
I think you're great Joanna. Stick with Karent and Lisa - then the drinking will be fun and free of drama :) The rest of the women don't really matter, except remember to watch your back around them, because they are like vultures stalking trouble. You, Karent, and Lisa, really seem to genuinely care about the other and have each other's backs within a tightly knit friendship - keep like that :) Good luck darlin' :)
For once i thought you did the right thing by getting up and leaving the table after Ana but when you came back and in tears said" I adore you but please don't speak bad of Romain" i couldn't believe it, no class , no self respect and no dignity ! Im glad he made fun of you and ridiculed you again by saying you had your period ! and also for you not to care how your bff Karent asked Joe Francis if he slept with you and your sister then proceeded to take him to tell everyone including Romain? what is wrong with you? by the way i saw it again i had missed the part wher Joe Francis talks about what you did in movie theater? and i couldn't believe that Romain just stood there and said or did nothing ? It's not like they were holding him back or anythin? NOTHING, and Martha? embarrasing crying laughing? and then at the end of the night holding hands and cuddling with him ? she's sooo sweet !
I think Thomas hit a nerve when he asked you jokingly at dinner if your boyfriend was cheating on you? I thought your response was a little weird when you said "No he's working really hard." Really, so you're taking what Thomas said seriously?! Then you went on to say that you could say something really mean, but you won't. My how big of you. If you could say something mean, but won't then it's best you not say anything at all. I think your boyfriend is cheating on you and I think you know it. When Thomas asked you if he is cheating on you he said something really mean, even if it was meant in jest, it's really mean because the truth is much crueler than any silly insult you were struggling to come up with.
He did hit a nerve but if you knew him you would know he is rarely serious. Also, those episodes of rage you viewed, happen more often than not. Joanna knows Romain is a dog. She is just not ready to end the relationship.
You are beautiful. Don't let that butcher plastic surgeon touch your face! He destroyed his wife, Lisa! She was beautiful before!! stay real and beautiful! Please! The real world sees how awful these plastic surgeries are !!
i hope you and romain get back together! i mean i dont know the ins and outs of your relationship but there is love.. my fiance is from zakopane in poland, and then when he was 17 his family moved to usa and i met him in college. we have also been together for 6 years and engaged for 3 and 3 years ago when he went back to poland to visit his dad, same kind of situation happened but we are still working on it. i believe in love and also independence but u have to remember in the end joanna it wont be your work hugging you and holding you in your arms and growing old with you.. you are my fav housewife tho! and i dont know how to say i love u in the polish platonic way but kocham cie joanna! u r the best!
You're a fine one to give Karent advice when you caught Romain cheating you cooked him a meal fit for a king !! pathetic
I can see how your mother could be your rock.She is also a beautiful woman .I've seen some pictures of her and am surprised you have not helped her with clothes and hair.She could really look much better if you helped.
You are the coolest and most beautiful Miami Housewife. I love the way you stood up for the dentist when all the others were mean to her they were just jealous of her.
marykv Hmmm I've seen your other comments/replies and it seems you are definitely team Joanna, we get it, but do you really have to dump on others perceptions? Seems like you are either Joanna, or you are the one acting like a jealous housewife.
Oh, Joanna, it's always boo-hoo with you. We know, we know...you've been in the industry for 10 years and you're a very alcohol-dependent...um, I mean independent...woman. But guess what? Becoming an equal partner in a loving relationship doe not mean you have to give that up. Your reasonings reek of your immaturity.
KeriM I have to agree with you. I also have a problem when she speaks with a Latino accent.
And she says "by the end of a day I'm a doctor".I didn't know dentists studied with M.D.s Karent you are a DENTIST,congratulations.
That's the second time Karent has announced that she is a "Doctor"...guess she loves to use her "Courtesy Title" in her delusional, fairy-tale land.
She wouldn't be an M.D. (medical doctor), but she is a doctor.
Her degree would be either a D.D.S. (doctor of dental surgery) or a D.M.D. (doctor of medical dentistry).
koczusia Oh I didn't know she said that. Still that's pathetic that that is all she has in her life. Even worse she's not a doctor, but a dentist! Whoever says " At least I'm a dentist." She has never been married nor does she have a child...it's sad when the only thing you can say is " At the end of the day I'm a dentist." LOL yes you fix people's teeth...gross.
@Sunshinekisses @koczusia You know what, When you really need a dentist, They are a doctor. Don't slam dentistry unless you can be Assured that you will never have a toothache And be begging for one in the middle of the night.
@koczusia exactly. Ddnt anyone see The Hangover?? LOL!! In all seriousness, dentists ARE NOT DOCTORS! They get trained on the dangers of bad gums, disease, etc i know because I went to school to be a dental hygienist. She likes to feel important as opposed to a nobody, she's a dentist. She needs to get over herself.. I don't like her, either. Dang and look at all the free dental work/cleanings she gave her boyfriend? Ha! Ding bat! I'd date her too for dental work! It's expensive!!
mykittable KeriM lol! I thought she had a Polish accent, but now that you mention it I suppose it doesn't sound Polish so yeah what's up with that fake Latino accent?! She's such a twit!
@mykittable @KeriM I can't stand her Latino accent ... Can't stand it. She sounds even more like an idiot than she already Does. She's irrelevant and has serious issues within herself. Romain should put on his sneakers and run like hell. She has taken on the accent because she's trying to emulate romain. She has an identity crisis, hasn't a clue as to who she is. Hope she finds herself. It's sad. She's a wanna-be bad ass and it's embarrassing.
so this is you grown up? Sorry but I think youre still immature in many ways. Especially when it comes to your vanity and competitiveness with other women. You need to learn how to be a bit more selfless too. I can imagine youre a nightmare to live with and no wonder Romain always looks exhausted. Obviously not from sex either :/
@calvin.right If immaturity breeds vanity and competitiveness, I guess that is a trait necessary to be cast in any one of the housewives franchise. Joanna is by far the most honest about herself and her shortcomings and I appreciate how often she recognizes her role in the issues that she faces. In my eyes, that is a better sign of maturity than the other women on this show have displayed.
People are entitled to their opinions...what is Joanna paying you to come on here and defend every negative comment. Hysterical and pathetic...just like Joanna.
WhoDoesThat I sooooo agree, this person seems obbsessed or something anyone watching would/couldn't be in their right mind and agree with Joanna.
Those"jealous" housewives have their own accomplishments.Joanna has no education ( painfully visible and audible),"works" her usually naked body.What has SHE done ? Adrianna should ask HER.
Romain is not getting from you what he needs:exclusive attention,feeling loved and needed etc.Somebody was just nicer to him than you.You are too busy with YOU and have an excuse for everything.He WILL leave you if you don't pay attention.
I read your post about you and Romaine. I'm so sorry that you guys couldn't make it. But, you are hot, young and smart so you will find someone with no problem. But, chill out with the drinking and outbursts its so not a good look for you.
Dreid123 they are still together. Well, for this week at least. Next week theyll be back off again no doubt :/
