It was the dinner fight heard 'round South Beach when Mama Elsa was suddenly the target of a very angry Thomas, who at the end of his screaming fit told the beloved Real Housewives of Miami matriarch "sit down, shut up or leave!" So, what the heck led to that point?
In an interview with Celebuzz, Elsa's daughter and RHOM 'Wife Marysol Patton explains that Elsa and Thomas have quite a bit of history, and dinner party tantrums are kind of his thing. "My mother’s been like Thomas’ mother for like 20 years," Marysol says. "I’ve sat at dinners with Thomas’ mother sitting there and he’ll tell his own mother, ‘Elsa’s more of a mother to me than you are.’ So, when he loses his mind, and I’ve seen him throw dignitaries and celebrities out of his house, there’s always someone at every dinner party that he targets and he throws out. I’ve seen it happen over two decades. I’ve never seen him do it to my mother."
And what of Karent Sierra, who has earned a reputation among the ladies as a social climber -- does Marysol feel the same way?
"I just think that a lot of us feel the same way. We all talk and we all agree. We don’t think she’s a bad person or a malicious person at all. We just think that she’s very, I guess the word we all use is overzealous. And then everyone else is kind of chill and just rolling with everything and then I guess it just rubs everyone the wrong way, the overzealousness and excitement to jump into the middle of everything," Marysol said in the interview.
