I have also learned that although all my life I have been a people pleaser, right now I first need to think of pleasing myself. People will love or hate or judge you whether you're a celebrity, public figure, or a hardworking person that is not recognized in the media. They will draw conclusions about you based on what they know, or even if they have never met you, or whatever they want to believe. I can't control people’s feelings and try to have everyone love me. I live my life without trying to do any harm to anyone. I give of myself to the people I care about and also through my foundation, Sharing Smiles. I was reminded also that not even God or Jesus Christ was loved by all. Even him, without any sin, was wrongly accused and hated by many. So who am I to think that I can have everyone love me, defects and all? I guess it was naive, yet eternally optimistic on my part. I still choose to not let the negative circumstances that have played out this season change the person that I am. To harden my heart and not continue to be the happy, free spirited, loving person that I am would mean allowing those that want to hurt me win. I will never allow that.
I thank Joanna and Lisa in particular for being amazing friends to me from day one. I built a bond with them that won't be easily broken. I believe that loyalty and true friendship was demonstrated both ways. For that, I am eternally grateful. Lea was a tricky one. At first her personality and humor did not sit well with me. But in time I realized that if you peel off the layer of her humor and sometimes not so funny jokes, you will find a woman that is a true friend and also very loyal. If people take the time to truly get to know her, I think you will all agree. We all have different personalities, and it’s just about figuring out which ones you can live with, and also who will contribute something positive to your life. Surround yourself with people you admire and that have a shining light and positive energy. I have been very blessed to have a nucleus of friends that are just that. I have made a conscious choice and effort many years ago to no longer surround myself with people who are constantly negative and whose objective in life is to tear others apart by their words or actions. I celebrate my friends’ successes and wish and hope that each and every one of you are able to achieve all your goals and dreams.
Thank you for all your kind words that I have received on Twitter and Facebook. I try to answer as many of you as I can, and I am humbled by all your beautiful comments.
To all these ladies, I wish them happiness, love, and light.

Karent, I have only seen the beginning of the season as I live in Canada and that's what is being shown. The last episode I saw was from Bimimy and I felt really bad for you. Lisa should have told you alone without every one looking at you....you put on a brave face but I could see the hurt. That Alexis is a real piece of work! Therebwas no reason to share that until you returned from the Bahamas . Hang in there, I for one think you are great! A fan deb.morrison
Karent is really beautiful on the outside. Simply stunningly gorgeous and exuding perfection. But on the inside, not so perfect. It just seems that there is something off. Sure she is desirous of a little bit of fame, after all, each and every one of them on the show are desirous of the same or else they would not be on it. However, the way she goes about it, is sort of underhanded and that totally shows on the screen. There is a fakeness about her. But I do feel sorry her a bit. I think she wants to fit in but she has issues with social anxiety underneath it all. And that coupled with not being able to see or choosing to ignore "red flags" such as the ones in her relationship with Adolpho could explain a lot. I think Karent would like to be accepted and have a man who loves her albeit she likes a bad boy. And sad enough, what Alexia, who I previously respected was doing in the Bahamas was just disgusting. It really sucks to have half a group dislike you, she needs to take a look at her energy vibrations. Just my two cents... I really hope for Karent a happy and successful future. I believe there is hope for that girl!
your smile Adrianna talks about that bothers her so much does not seem phony to me its more of a nervous smile.move on and stay away from that little tip rat good luck xx
I just saw you on The Doctors, You and Lea are so much smarter and beautiful than all the others put together. Keep smiling.
Beautifully written. Anyone with criticism to your words must be a fan of promoting hate. You are justified in your response to this season and the best revenge you can get on anyone is to not let them get to you, and smile! I hope they bring you back next season so we can watch the old hags self-destruct.
I can't believe that some women on this show gave you such a hard time about that "article" and it turns out at the end that you didn't even say those things!!
I don't believe everything in this blog. I think you once again are trying too hard for people to like you.
I didn't see a lot of love for Alexia and didn't really feel that the sarcastic eye-rolling dismissal of people you clearly had contempt for was "positive" and "always looking at the glass as half-full." That seems like a cheap and false retelling of events. You can't even own up to your own negativity and hatefulness, and instead spraypaint it all pink and glittery and hope that no one notices. Girl, people noticed the unhappiness and the lack of real human concern there.
On the other hand, you were an object of much hatred and seemed to be on the receiving end of a lot of uncalled-for harshness, and that was wrong, too. Oh lord, it was an ugly season.
Karent, I'm happy that everyone now knows that the only thing you were guilty of is being in an obsessive relationship with a womanizer. Many of us have been there! Were you a little too animated at events? Perhaps. But that isn't a sin. I truly in my heart believe they were all jealous of you. Notice how the most attractive girls were comfortable with you? You are the FULL ON package. A beautiful person. I don't know about bullied but you were definitely ganged up on and handled with a lot of class and composure. I hope you meet a great guy who deserves you (and that you freeze some of those eggs!!!!)
I think you are harmless and bottom line just looking for friendship ...... but.....Are you comparing yourself to Jesus in this blog?????
Not really. Her fans like to keep up with her and she probably had to write a closing blog for the show. She didn't leave her fans hanging.
@Heidi_Ylenni To me, writing a response to a blog that you think is silly, is silly. You may as well have not read it. :)
I perceive you to be a positive person with a beautiful heart. We could all learn something from you. Hoping that you come back next season. oxo
Well I'm glad that u feel you stayed true to yourself, i guess you can't help it that you're annoying! I actually was a fan of everyone (even if i didn't always agree with their actions or words) but you. You really just need not to try so hard to be "famous". A dentist who has agents or PR people ...really??
saraingrid i think she is a really nice person. The way she handled all the neg's is commendable. She also is the prettiest, next to lea.
saraingrid i think she explained on the reunion show that the reason she has an agent is because she does acting/commercials on the side too.
I think that you are a lovely gentle woman. I loved how you interacted with those children. You were warm and genuine. I'm glad that you are friends with Joanna because she seems like a loyal and good- hearted friend. I despised the way Adriana treated you. She is an ugly, cruel and uncouth person. Alexia was also very mean to you. I just don't understand their behavior. Keep on smiling. It puts your patients at ease.
I can not believe that people are agreeing that Karent was "Bullied". Everyone needs to get off the Bullying band wagon. This was straight up women being catty and clicky .... that is it people !!! I am seriously getting tired of people mimizing the fact that ACTUAL BULLY occurs .... which by they way is usually targeted at individuals who are uncapable to defend themselves. NOT a grown woman who seems to have shown us that she is more than cabpable to handle her self just fine. SO GIVE ME A BREAK ..... LETS CALL IT WHAT IT REALLY IS ... Women being catty, the bully tactic is for symphany and you all seemed to have gobbled it right up.
eden7309 I completely DISAGREE, and think these women displayed textbook bullying toward Karent. When a GROUP decides, that due to no real slight or provocation, we just don't like this ONE and we are going to try to separate them from the herd and influence others not to like them either, that is considered bullying. If it was being done to any of our children at school, we would absolutely consider it bullying. Early on these women (Ana, Marissa, Alexia, somewhat Lea, and later Adriana) decided they didn't like Karent and were ALL going to treat her like garbage and talk crap about her every chance they got. And what were there "good reasons" not to like her and to be rude and dismissive toward her 1) because she "tried to hard to fit in", and I agree she did, but that's hardly a reason to hate someone, maybe acknowledge yours is a tough crowd to break in to and she was the new cast mate so she had to find a way to integrate quickly? 2) that her boyfriend was a douche? To me that's a reason to feel bad for and support her, not hate her. 3) because you think it's pretentious, as a "dentist", she has a publicist? Please, she was Miss Columbia, and is a Bravolebrity so she's kind of a celebrity dentist. Lisa admitted to also having a publicist, stating "and I don't even work", but you're all on this TV show, and have foundations, charities, etc. Not to mention, she, along with Ana, are some of the first housewives to have serious professional degrees (DDM & JD) and careers, something to be praised, not belittled. and 4) She SMILES too much, seriously, I wont dignify that with an answer.
These grown ass women, and all mothers I think, would have been outraged if a group of girls singled out their daughter, as the new kid in school, and attacked her for being "too sweet, too smiley, tried too hard to be liked, and having a boyfriend that treated her badly". They need to grow up. If she annoyed them, they didn't have to be her best friend, but basic politeness and civility toward someone your put in a "professional relationship" with is a minimum standard for a decent adult code of behavior.
eden7309 These women weren't just being catty... they were vicious and resorted to Jr. High School behavior and conduct. AND NO it isn't accepted as an appropriate way to conduct yourself at anytime in your life.
Karent, I was wondering what was going on since it had been a couple months without a blog and b/c I follow you on Twitter but I love that you were able to look at this experience as a learning opportunity and were able to zero in on some of the things you notice in yourself, particularly your people pleasing tendencies and your naivete, and wanting to better yourself. I really hope to see an even more confident (yet not confrontational, please dont go that route lol) woman if you come back for Season 3. All the best to you!
Karent, so glad you wrote your blog. So glad that you also saw Lea for the real person that she is. You, Lea and Lisa are my favorites. Keep smiling, it becomes you.
Glad to hear you are still positive after the rough season and beating you took from some of your cast mates. You were a great addition. Wish you all the luck in being found by Mr. Right soon and creating the family your heart desires.
Karent, you are an inspiration for the way you have dealt with the pettiness and hatred that some of the ladies threw your way. It is great for all of us who have been the victims of bullies and hatred to see what a great job you have done dealing with all of that stuff. I have always admired you because you are an intelligent, classy, self-made woman and now I admire you even more. You are the only housewife who has set a good example for other women to see. Take care.
I have been bullied my whole life and i usually tried taking the high road and pretending like it didn't effect me and blah blah. I even did like you and tried to let my haters motivate me to be better just to prove i was not on their level. I have learned that standing up for yourself isn't a bad thing. It is never ok to let people disrespect you and treat you like crap. You don't have to go at it like Joanna and Adriana just say your piece let the other person pull mean words out of their butt. Like when Adriana called joanna (hoe-anna) what are we in junior high? Just as long as you say your genuine opinion yourself. Don't be a doormat Karent.
-One of your fans.
I felt sorry for how horrible some of the women treated you this season. You seem nice and harmless.
BeNice Was I dreaming, or was it Karent that asked the crucial question: "did you have sex with both of them?' which lead to the massive drama at the lingerie party... I am in australia, so perhaps that comes out at the reunion, haven't got that far yet...
