Hello everyone! I'm back from my trip, a little jet lagged, but very happy to be back home and to be able to interact with all of you once again.
We start off the episode at Alexia's magazine party. Joanna had called me to warn me about Adriana wanting to confront me at this event, which I thought was completely inappropriate for Adriana to do. Why not call me and talk to me or ask me to meet up for some coffee and discuss whatever was on her mind like two adults? Because she wanted to be surrounded by her bullying friends, that's why.
Alexia decides to interrupt the conversation I was having with Adriana, and she had mentioned that she had not invited me to this event. She basically had to eat her words when I mentioned that her husband had emailed me and invited me. She then went on to say that she was not in charge of the guest list and that she had no idea because it was her husband who handled that. Once again, this proves that Alexia, for some reason, will just fabricate anything to make me look bad, but in the end, the truth always comes out.
Alexia mentions in the show that she knew Rodolfo before I did. Seriously, we were dating for a year before Rodolfo ever knew who she was. Alexia always wants to create a competition, but I don't need or want to compete with her in any way. She also mentions that I came into the group, so "I have to earn my place." Are you kidding me? I have been friendly and polite and have always gone out of my way to say hi to all the girls, but her diva attitude and feeling that all of us just praise her or should kiss up to her is not in my plans. No one is better than anyone. Many times at events, if it wasn't for me taking the initiative to go up to her and say hi, she would've completely ignored me. Seems like someone needs a couple of lessons in etiquette instead of criticizing me all the time.
I love Karent and was disappointed that she didn't come back for season 3. In regards to the picture that Adriana was upset about, it's a freaking picture! Seriously?! Why would she be upset that Karent wanted a picture? That being said, I understand that Adriana wanted to talk with Karent about her feelings but a party is NOT the place to do it. It's seems to be a common thing on these "Housewives" shows that confrontations happen at the most inappropriate places. Is a party or a dinner really the place to get into it? No, pick your house or a Starbucks. Karent handled herself with class and dignity against Adriana's attacks. And then, Alexia walks in to do some bullying of her own. Now, if Alexia was the hostess, she should have said, "IS everything okay?" and moved on. Alexia had no right butting and yelling at Karent, especially when Karent said that she had been praying for Alexia’s son. That being said, Alexia was probably worried about leaving her son at home, so that’s probably where her anger is coming from. However, Alexia shouldn’t have taken it out on Karent. And when Alexia said that “You have to earn your place in the group”, it was so high school. Being accepted in a group of friends isn’t like earning a paycheck. Friends like you and accept you for who you are. Period. And Karent has done that by being herself, not by being a back-stabbing hypocrite. It’s not her style. GOD bless
Of all the 'Housewives' shows I've been a faithful viewer of, and of ALL the dramatic fight scenes and cattiness between cast members for whom I love and hate, I have never felt compelled to write to any one but you! After watching Episode 6, I registered on this site just to be able to post my comment to you....
I can see why these women get their panties all in a bunch because of you...it is because you "kill them with kindness", put on your big grin and act like whatever they do, doesn't effect you. It IS classy and dignified they way you handle those situations! It's nice to see that coming from a "Housewife" because even the quiet ones will break eventually and we'll see them blow up in an episode by the end of the season. LOL I do want to say that I love how you respond to accusations, questions, or comments about yourself and the other cast members. You are eloquent, poised and choose your words wisely as to not make matters worse. Which almost makes me wonder how you stand to be friends with Joanna because when she gets going, she just keeps going! LOL (Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of Joanna's, she's a good asset to the show!)
I think the women (Adriana in particular) don't see that it's not that you're trying to steal the lime-light or whatever, it's that you're networking! I've heard you explain something to that affect, and from what I see, that is what you are doing! Or maybe you just like getting to know everyone around town just for the hell of it, and even if that was the case, there's nothing wrong with that either!
I'm not taking Alexia's side what-so-ever and condoning her "diva attitude" 'cause I think her swooping in and going off on you had no recourse to Adriana's fit toward you, but I do, however, understand why she blew up when you mentioned praying for her son. Well, in the episode, she mentions that this is the first social event she's been to since her son's accident, so I can imagine any anxiety and any other emotions she could have been feeling already. It was a definite reaction to all that was built up inside of her and unfortunately, you were there for her "person to take it out on". I think that you using the example of your concern for her and her family to show how you don't understand why she was yelling at you, just wasn't the right time and place for her to see that. Does that make sense?
Well, I've tried to sum up what I wanted to say. I hope it's not too long. In any case, just wanna say that I'm on your 'side' and I love the show! It's better this season with you and the other new cast members! And I love to see your friendship with Lisa and Joanna! I can definitely see myself with your group! :-D
You carry yourself with such class and dignity! I would have broken down if I had been attacked like that by those crazy witches! I seriously do not get all the negativity towards you. It can only be jealousy.
Creo que no sportan la idea de que eres doctora,Bonita ya que muchas de ellas solo representan a un grupo de esposas trofeos y que se casaron con plata para tener un status x. Eso se llama envidia carino no solo te critical por tener educacion tambien pir brilliant con luz propia .
Karent, you really do come out as a fake, superficial person even if you are not. Maybe you want to fit in so badly, that you go over board, but trying to get everyone's attention at every party is not a good way to start new friendships. And BTW, talking about Alexia's son at that party was a really, REALLY bad move! You probably do not know the hard time that Alexia has been going through, first because you are not a Mother, and will not know how this can affect one, and second because you are not a close friend of Alexia, and do not know ALL that she have been through, but bringing up her son Frankie during your discussion was dumb as hell, and for that you are guilty!
You are always talking about your BF Rodolfo and he is such a huge Latin Soap Opera star... honey, I watched Spanish Soap Opera's, and I have never, ever since your boy friend! Specially not on the most popular Soap Opera's, so I don't know what company he works for, but he is not as big as you want to make all of us believe! I know soap opera actor's, and he is not popular!
I would not have been able to handle myself so gracefully after being ganged up on like that. Good for you. Don't change yourself for these nasty women.
Because of your conversation with Joanna you knew what Adriana wanted to talk to you about. Sure, she could have invited you to share a coffee and air your differences and should have. However when she said she wanted to talk to you couldn't you have done the same thing or at the very least suggested that the Venue event was not the place to talk? Your insensitivity to Alexia's behavior really upsets me. I recently had a family member go through a serious medical emergency and the mere mention of his name would bring me to tears and his issues were not as serious as Alexia's son. I understand why she was upset and anyone who has gone through something similar does too. You really didn't need to mention him to prove a point.
Since when is smiling alot and trying to make friends considered being fake? It's an awful thing when people are irritated by someone's smile. Those are the kind of people that are so miserable they can't stand to see anyone else happy. I mean really, you're gonna use the fact that she has a pagent smile against her? She's a beauty queen for goodness sake!
In this world you gotta use what you got, and I'm sure Karent's smile has opened alot of doors for her.
I love you, keep doing what you're doing and don't let them change who you are. The mean girls (not women) are just miserable with the lives.
I really don't care much for you because you seem to be incredible insecure and fake...which is probably do to the fact that you are so insecure and so desperately want people to like you, when I don't think YOU even know who YOU are. Hopefully this show will give you the opportunity to see yourself from the outside, do some soul searching, dump that loser of a "boyfriend" & Learn to feel happy being you, whoever that maybe. I will give you credit for the way you handled being kicked out of the Party. You handled it the best way possible.
You claim to be Joanna's GOOD friend, and after everything she has done for you, you had the audacity to ask that Pig Joe in FRONT of the Cameras if HE slept with them. He was looking for an opportunity to throw that out there and you gave it to him. Nice going.
I thought the same thing. Why go there? Such a good friend, she wanted more air time. Why is she entertaining slimeball's BS? Then she takes him over to Joanna who is clearly keeping her distance. You are supposed to protect your friends, not provide opportunities for snakes to bit them!
Ummm, why are we jumping ahead to a episode that hasn't even aired yet? We're going after someone when you have just seen a "don't miss this!" 30 second clip???? Strange ...
You do come off as a little fake. Your boyfriend is gross! Also, I see exactly what the girls are saying; I think you have a good heart but you are a celebrity mmm..not stalker but one of those people that intrude on situations to get pics etc. w/famous or important people & pretend to be closer than you are. Like you want to be seen w/them or photographed w/them. It comes off as phony. You are beautiful & sweet..TONE IT DOWN. The smile seems insincere & you smile a lot at inappropriate times. I think it's because you are a little nervous & haven't warmed up to the cameras yet? Idk but I see why everyone is aggravated. As far as Joanna, I think she is a pot stirrer & I would watch my back with her! I think she LOVES drama & being right in the middle of it! I don't care for her. In fact being a super model, I have never heard of her!
Don't really care what made the three "A"s act the way they did. Suffice it to say it was a trial by fire and you emerged with dignity and pride intact. Love your smile, love your fam, love your earnestness. You speak from the heart and they speak to the camera. Be brave, querida mia.
You would do yourself an enormous favor if you lost the pageant smile.. It is excrutiating.. though I must say, you did nothing wrong to Alexia or the off the rails, Adriana.. Adriana is limelight crazy herself and is jealous of your boldness. So back it up and start over.
After taking Alexia to task for her reprehensible behavior at the event on her blog, I wanted to reach out and say I do absolutely enjoy watching you on the show. Although I believe the viewers have yet to fully understand you as a person or a personality, I find you to be charming, beautiful and classy. You're obviously intelligent and I feel many of the women are threatened by your intellect and the way in which you carry yourself. From what I have seen, you have always presented yourself as completely gracious on the show. As I noted on Alexia's blog, many of these women have a "chismosa" attitude that is completely off-putting. Ana's obsession with your relationship is disturbing. Her comments have done nothing to endear her to the viewers. She's this season's Christy Rice. Vapid, boring, gossipy... she can go away. I wouldn't miss her at all. KEEP SMILING!!!! I think it's your best feature and it obviously pisses off all the right people. :)
they can call u anything...but one thing they can not say: that u r not polite.......U r very polite...
This is my first time watching you all. I had saw one eppy and liked it so decided to watch all of them one day.
If it's any comfort I can't stand that cackling hen Lea either, all she does is laugh like a fool, like life is one big joke, (IMO) her and her rude white haired friend. I don't blame you for wanting to stay away from them.
You seem really nice and although I don't agree with the way you are being treated by these "ladies" I do believe that you come across as a big social climber. At the exhibit with Adriana you had no idea who Carlos Cruz Diez was but the moment you heard that he was uber famous you praised him, kissed him and took a picture with him that you later tweeted! Same thing with that old man at the party, you were all over him and even asked your boyfriend if you should go and sit in his lap and take a picture, just to show the other woman that you also are friends with him! You are succesful on your own, why do you need to show everybody that you hang out with rich and famous people in Miami! Typical "keeping up with the Joneses" attitude that latinos have! It makes good TV though!
I lost count of how many times you said "My friend, My friend Joanna, thank goodness for My Friend." We got it...Joanna is your friend, and it's worth more than it's weight in gold. Pretty sure that is what all the other women were talking about. It is clear you want to be accepted and part of the group so badly, and thus you come across as fake and a "wannabe." Plus, the smiling all the time is a lot and comes across as insincere and extremely false. Take note from RHONY..this was Ramona's issue with Heather. Be yourself and focus on yourself, like for instance, your relationship with Rodolfo. I assume once you watch the episodes you will see he was indeed texting Ana and clearly the reason he doesn't want you getting close to these other women is because you might find out the truth about his scandalous, cheating ways. Please open your eyes; be real and get rid of your "boyfriend."' I think if you do that, the other ladies will be a bit more accepting of you.
Passive aggressive much???? You are so pretty and seemingly intelligent, why are you so insecure? Is it your boyfriend? EWW!! Try being yourself and I'm sure life will be much easier for you!
@Kymmie I think Karent is being herself. It's the insecure people who wants her to change who cannot deal with her fabulosity.
yelahjl michelle.lucas.3150 Kymmie
But she should lose that wide smile as she becomes herself.. That is very fake.. who smiles that way except for pageant contestants?. Doh!
Anne0 I agree. The comment she made towards Ana was an annoying reminder of Karen T.'s insincerity.
*Karen, please drop the annoying T at the end of your artifical name, and learn to say what you mean, and mean what you say. You have not been blessed with the gift of subtlety, so embrace your obnoxious personality and viewers may warm up to you.
@CL65AMG Karent don't let anyone put you down!!!You're very successful, genuine person. Ignore haters!!!
Oh gosh how old are you??? Because you all act like little teenagers. I really hope all of you are just acting. At least I know what my jack-o-lantern will look like this year, a Karent Sierra one...scary!!!
Alexia is obviously jealous of you. Look at what she complained about: you having a publicist, knowing your boyfriend before you did, your confidence in the way you carry yourself, your smile, people at HER event not knowing who you were....they are all related to what SHE shallowly feels is VERY important: personal fame. She's jealous because she OBVIOUSLY thought SHE was the most famous housewife of Miami!!
I might come off as a "hater" but I just call it like I see it. On the positive side, I find you to be very poised and I do think that you have a good heart. On the negative side, you're annoying and you bring out the worst in some women, unfortunately. Women have very low tolerance thresholds for people who they cannot relate to due to them appearing fake, which you tend to do. Be honest to yourself and other people will notice and respect that about you. It looks like you're lying to yourself about your relationships and have convinced yourself that people around you are jealous when they are not.
Karent! I love you! The other women are the types that make Americans look bad and shallow abroad. I cringe when I watch them, especially Adrianna--I would expect someone so "cultured" to act with a little dignity. You are an educated, beautiful women!! Just keep smiling and rise above their bullshit....it's obvious that they're lives are so petty that they have nothing else to focus on but you.
Milica she does not have to tone it down to be part of the mean girls. I know what you mean but this is how our girls get screwed up in school...do this do that and then you can be in....BE YOURSELF
oh and we all wish we were pretty and smart like Karent
Karent you earned a place right at the top! Obnoxious Adriana bottom feeder. Not, that you should have to earn a place. Who's stupid rule is that? Now you know they're making rules up as we go. Love to watch because of you. Your self confidence, pleasant manners, your relationship with your mother. You and Roldolfo have fun. That's what matters. Probably the most educated and successful as well.
Karenmary thank goodness I read your post I was going to crazy...change this change that...hell to the NOOOO Karent is wonderful as she is
Karent, I hope after this party that you realize Adriana is not your real friend. You have a lot of class, don't ever join the mean girls club
Adriana is nobody's friend. She is what makes me not want to watch the RHOM. I did not really like Karent at first due to your over the top need to be center of attention. But, the way she handled the bullying from Adriana and Alexia she won me over. She left the party with class.
I do not care how you were confronted. You started the mess about Ana, you were the first to bring it up so you should live with the fallout from that. Your boyfriend .. he looks like a user but your also a user..the way you acted at the event that Lisa did. Your overly and extremely loud laughing and jumping from one person you did not know to anyone else. I have never seen anyone act like that period. Your a doctor?? Really? How many times are you going to say that? Do you think a real MD and I mean a MEDICAL Doctor would agree you are a doctor?? That is just BS! I am sick of hearing it. You know if you start stuff then you should own up to it! I do not know whether to like you or not like you because your so busy trying to convince someone you have a boyfriend and that your a doctor and your the little nice girl. You act .. that's all I see.
From a viewer's perspective it seems like Rodolfo likes having a free place to stay in Miami and another "in" to various parties. I don't know why she is so quick to accept the bad marriage excuse. She seems too smart for that.
Karent you are a classy lady! Keep your cool and don't let that annoying Adriana get under your skin. Adrian's is jealous and miserable for whatever reason only known by her. Stay cool and classy, you ROCK! Also you man is so very handsome, stay happy.
Adriana needs to get over herself. The other women mostly Adriana, Alexis and the Lawyer chick want to pick a fight with Karent for no reason. Why are they hating on you? Is it because she wants to befriend them? It doesn't make sense.
Alexis had no reason to jump in there conversation in the first place, It was like a gang up and I felt so bad for Karent. She has done nothing wrong. Who gets to say how she is suppose to act, That is so childish to tell her how she should act, I feel bad for Alexis son but she way overreacted and was just waiting I think for something to kick her out for anyway, Adriana is the insigator and is so jeoulous of Karent and shame on her. Bulling is the number one problem in this country and grown women are setting a very bad example. You don't need those bullies. You are better then them!!!!!
