After my trip back from LA, I thought a lot about what my mom said and also about the fact that Romain made amends with Frederic. That got me thinking and that is why I deiced to have a sit down lunch meeting with Adriana and try to work out our issues and past harassments. I hate having the horrible knot in my stomach every time I know I am going to see her. I wanted once and for all to sit down and move forward from this, since I am focused on my career and wedding and don't have the time nor the energy to keep going back in circles over the same thing over and over again.
I won’t lie, I was super nervous how the lunch would turn out and if she would understand why I feel the way I do and if she would sincerely apologize to me. I was on the fence, since I thought her apology in Bimini was sincere and turned out not to be. I don't have time in my life for hate and bad energy, and I only try to surround myself with good people, but I do believe in second chances and that is why I want to give that opportunity to her. I am not planning on being her best friend, but I want to move forward from this and focus on the important things in my life.
"Why you do that?" LOL...was funny. You 2 are cute...finding out what each other likes.. dislikes.. Cannot believe though you put on the brown wig after he told Adrianna (married at the time, hitting on your man) he liked blondes, not her (best scene of last season by the way).
Joanna, I was very touched by Romain's confession of his abusive childhood. I had a very sick, evil, abusive mother, too. Having my own child and giving her the mother I wished I had did a lot to heal me, and I'm sure that would be true for Romain. I wish you both the best.
I normally dont even think to look for a cite like this or to make comments that probably wont even be heard by the proper parties involved and this statement has nothing to do with your sex life other than to say I was so upset after hearing your husband talk about how abused he and his brother were by his step-mom that I literally fell apart and cried. To think that someone could do the things mentioned to such innocent young boys. My heart goes out to your husband and may God be good to you and bless you both with loving futures and a beautiful family to come. May you seek to be the best parents you can and love your children with the innocent love a child so deserves free of worries of adult issues and to know that they are unconditionally loved always and that their parents will always be there for them and protect them. With much love this is sent to you
No wonder I often channel surf during this show. The pathetic sex scene was so obvious. GAG!
If you want to do porn with your partner do it for your private viewing. Romain looked very uncomfortable and I was embarassed for both of you. Switched channels, way to much personal information for me.
Hold on, so he likes demure romantic blondes... So to get your sex life going you turn up as an even more aggressive than usual brunette!!! Lol!
Joanna, none of us is perfect, and we all make mistakes, but there is a big difference between mistakes in judgment and being deliberately hurtful. What Adrianna did to you was vile and evil at the core. She spewed some of the most hateful and hurtful things about you in public and on television for all to hear and see. Her behavior was disgraceful and she should be ashamed of herself and embarrassed for her son. And now she's on to Lea (and next it will probably be Lisa). People like this don't change into "good." They are what they are. I realize you have to make some sort of peace with her because you have to co-exist on the show, but I'd minimize the interaction as much as possible if I were you. She's a nasty person who so many on here would love to see off the show (just read around the blogs). The attacks were difficult to watch. On a different note, it appears that Lea and Lisa are truly fond of you and have come to view you as a genuine friend. It appears that you 3 have a very good relationship (Lea's initial snubbing of Lisa last year now in the past), and it's seems to be relationships truly worth fostering outside of this show (you need some good Miami (not only LA) friends too, ya know). Congratulations on the wedding. Liked the traditional dress on you best though!
"dream team" you are not Joanna.It's obvious that Romain wants to make love,you want to have sex and your therapist wants to make money.For a woman "who's done it everywhere (elevators, jets etc)" you don't seem to know what your man wants.He does NOT want a vulgar "bitch". You are in major denial.Can't see you "happily together" for long,sorry.
From what I see, Roman must b getting a little something somewhere else! I would think that the "we don't have sex" would be # 1 reason NOT to marry.
You are too strong and aggressive for Romain and it makes him feel castrated by you. If you want sex i would suggest you stop wearing the penis in the relationship. Try role playing as a passive, demure type woman whom he can control. You need to build up his manhood because you have definitely emasculated him.
@lorikb Agree on the whole with this assessment just not sure she can pretend to be someone she isn't for the rest of her life...
Joanna I have always liked you, even last season when you were sometimes an out of control drunk LOL. I saw the real you through all of that, which is a fun loving kind hearted person. There is one suggestion, I think you should nix the sex therapist and just work on toning down your aggression for sex toward Romain because the more you push the more he pulls away. Be less snarky with him regarding his passiveness towards sex and maybe embrace it and be more soft and less Vulgar about sex, some men love vulgarity with sex but some men turn pink with
embarrassment like Romain did during your therapy session. Stop calling him the Girl in the relationship, although he laughs at you when you say stuff like that, deep down it hurts him. Sex is not rocket science, when you feel confidence about yourself sexually like you do its easy to be a sexual being. Woo Romain, do the stuff that makes HIM feel romantic and sexy and watch him eventually grow into that sexual being also. I know this from experience unfortunately LOL.
Romain looks uncomfortable on the show and does not want to share that part of his life, who can blame him!!! He is a businessman who doesn't want his customers saying, I saw you last night bonking Johanna, again who can blame him. Romain, get a grip and tell Johanna to stop criticizing you on TV about your sex life. Johanna is quite wealthy, I think Leah and Lisa were surprised to know as well of her wealth.
I found the scenes with your role playing very distasteful, I see no need for that to be on t.v. especially since I think you had other motives. I think maybe you are trying to get an acting job out of it, but the acting was awful. There is no reason to keep whining about not having sex I find that very distasteful as well. There must be other things going on in your life that you can shoot for the show other than the whole sex stuff. It is in poor taste and where as I think it probably is a real problem in you real life I find no need to involve the viewers those are private moments and should remain such.
I respect your work ethic Johanna. You make us fellow Polish proud. Don't let Leah talk your sister Marta down, saying her priority is her new boyfriend etc. Marta is your sister and she loves you, she's not perfect, but I think Leah liked taking her place a little too much and commenting on it. p.s. I agree with the other comments; go sweet and demure, not more aggressive. The dark wig looked amazing though.
STAY AWAY FROM ADRIANA AND HER ENTOURAGE WHO HASN'T FIGURED OUT HOW FAKE SHE IS YET. SHE WILL TURN ON THEM ONE BY ONE. SHE IS SOOOO FAKE AND A LIAR AND 2FACED
I think you and Romain make this show!!!! You are so interesting and funny. I'm happy you stopped being angry, drunk Joanna. Happy and funny Joanna is much more fun to watch.
You looked SO hot as a brunette! You should cut your hair like that. Keep the positive Joanna around! She's great to watch. But, I would stop picking apart your husband. He's cute and good to you. Romain is a good influence. Don't rag on him calling him a "girl" or "the woman in the relationship." Treat him like a man and he will act like a man!!!
Joanna, you need not to go to Sex therapist , just read all these posts. Lots of smart women , who have been married for years, myself included. It seems everyone says the same advice . Stop emasculating your gorgeous husband ( he looks like a young Rock Hudson) and things will fall into place....
Listen you can find million of reasons to think why Roman is not into sex. But the bottom line is...Joanna is one great looking, hot girl....And Roman just does not seems to be a match in that area...he seems to luck the drive the way Joanna does. Everything else is just beating around the bush.
taniasveta looks are not everything.Joanna is boring and that affects their sex life.This is what Romain was complaining about.On the other hand a real man knows how to make sex thrilling.I would worry if I were Joanna.Too early for these problems.
Kudos to you for pretending to forgive Adriana and all of things she has said about and did to you. I Truly cannot believe that you sat and waited for those two to show up for 1 hour . Especially without a phone call explaining why they are running late!!! So rude.... everyone is busy, no excuse for making people wait other than poor manners. Then again maybe she was hoping you'd leave so she could say she was there and tried but you left. Giving her the upper hand. I think this whole meeting was staged but I guess you do have to be able to share this forum on some level. As far as the role playing, I call BS. What man or woman would want this on national TV unless they are trying to act for the cameras.... Boring.
Joanna it is always good to spice things up with role playing, but I think it isn't about looks. You are gorgeous. Just my opinion.
Super proud of you to "make up" with Adriana. She is NOT worth the negative energy.
I can't believe you messed up that night with Romain. It was so embarrassing to watch that scene play out. You know what he does NOT like, yet you get even more AGRESSIVE??!!! Why go for therapy if you are NOT going to listen!!!!
I wish you luck!
Joanna,,,Tiy are beautiful and bright. But your drinking is an issues. It may be a turn off. And it will affect your health at one point.
taniasveta I haven't seen her drink this year I think she took note and got it under control. She looks fabulous.
She took note, she's grown a lot since last year and that's what i love about her.
@GODISGOODALLTHETIME1 bpster taniasveta Just the way Joanna is mature enough to tolerate Agrianna shows how much she has learned.
Hi Joanna you are gorgeous not matter what, but I have to admit I like you much better blonde. First why why why would you want anything to do with ADRILIAR. I wouldn't want anything to do with a person like her. Second Your husband is adorable. It is funny that he is like a woman and you are like a man. He wants some romance and cuddling that is super super cute. I hope therapy helps you are a gorgeous couple.
VikkiP She may think it is funny but it is not getting her what she wants. You'd think she would figure that out.
You looked really stunning as a brunette! Anyway, stop emasculating Roman! Your approach and constant lecturing has to be a turn off. I thought Romain looked pretty darn good in those glasses you didnt much care for! Seems like he needs to be allowed to be a man and not have you run the bedroom show so much. Criticizing and demanding creates pressure. It doesn't take a pro to figure that out!
I'm just going to say this because I do like you and have rooted for you since the beginning. Quit complaining about your lack of sex. It's a HORRIBLE story line. Boring and I'm over it. The only person I care about having sex is ME.
@bpster Omg!! So true!! Who cares about other peoples sex lives!!! I quess there is not much for a storyline? Like everyone else. Whadda are they gonna talk about? Like in my house ? What's for dinner?
@bpster .. Thank you.. What a boring and sad storyline it is! I don't see how the marriage is going to last with these kind of problems before the marriage (if true, of course).
bpster I do think there is a deeper issue for them than not having sex. When you are a hot looking couple like they are, I'm sure the male feel more pressure to be "banging" the HOT girlfriend every night even though he's not that kind of guy. This has the potential to become a good storyline if BRAVO weren't so shallow.
Isn't it funny...Melisa from real housewives New Jersey complains that her Joe wants it all the time...while you complain that Roman finds exuses not to have it. Life is funny.
taniasveta Joe is insecure and has to always prove his is a man. Romain is not afraid to be who he is.
I am so bored with the sex thing with Joanna. I think she just wants more time in front of the camera. Looks aren't everything. I bet Romain isn't turned on by her mind. I can't find anything interesting about her.
As an academia, that look with Romain wearing the glasses and in an expensive suit was certainly a turn on. Joanna you should have let the professor conduct his experiment without interrupting. What a turn on. He did not look like someone from Miami, but from the East Coast that is ground zero for brains. Romain, please wear those glasses more often. You can definitely see that you are from a different caste in Brazil( for lack of a better word) than Adriana. He has class and good manners. That squirrel looking Frederic knows how to insult women. I wanted Romain to squeeze him just enough to cause some pain.
