Things are heating up in Miami in more ways than one. (Like we needed any more heat!) So here is my take on tonight’s explosive episode.

Things immediately heated up in Romain and Joanna's bedroom, but it quickly turned cold. Romain was uninterested at that moment and preoccupied with his big night, which left Joanna frustrated.

Romain and Joanna, as beautiful as they may be, are no different from anyone else. After seeing this, I'm sure many breathed a sigh of relief knowing they are not alone. When lives are busy or you're at a crossroads in a relationship, your sex life will suffer the consequences. Having Marta around while trying to figure out the next step in their relationship looks like a distraction. This is exactly why I offered Marta to come stay with me, so those two could get some much needed privacy. And besides, Marta would be in a completely separate wing of our house. No imposition at all.

When Joanna called me that afternoon to tell me about Romain’s citizenship and Lea’s gala, I did feel belittled that Lea called Joanna personally, but I was called by her assistant. Perhaps I was being a tad sensitive, but ultimately I want to do whatever I can to raise funds for charity, so it wasn't hard for me to overlook that to try and contribute any way that I could. Charity work trumps personal issues every time. I love doing what I can for great causes, and I admire how her charity is run.
