It was an explosive first part to the Real Housewives of Miami season two reunion! Although the season finale ended on a very amicable, and friendly, positive note, I just knew that the reunion would not reflect that because of all the drama the ladies had while the season was airing. By that I mean the cat fights on Twitter, WWHL, and on the blogs.
And it appears that I was right because the fireworks were definitely out last night! Ana was much more vocal at the reunion and was out to drag whoever needed it. This time it was Lea. But was all the fighting even worth it? On RHONJ, the screaming and attacking was at least over real issues. In Miami, I felt that the ladies were just amping it up for a spot on the next season of the show. What do you think?
The ladies are in a sound stage, decorated to the nines. They all look fabulous. They are in NYC in some studio instead of in Miami. For some reason, I love when they film the reunions in the respective cities in famous locations, but I guess the sound stage will do.
Andy prefaces the drama by asking about all the work the ladies have had done. Miami has the most beautiful cast, collectively, in my opinion, so what is real and what is not? Lea says neck lift, Joanna says boobs, Lisa says boobs, but the other ladies stay hushed.
Mama Elsa’s plastic surgery comes up and Marysol reveals she had botched eye lifts in the 80′s and that’s it. Really? I love Mama Elsa but it looks like botched lip injections, fillers, cheek implants, botched lifts, etc.
Things begin with discussing Joanna and her relationship with Romain. Joanna reveals that they’d broken up (they got back together a couple of weeks later) and that’s when bitchfest number one begins. Adriana chimes in and says Joanna and Romain are fame whores who broke up for publicity and will end up back together.
Adriana WAS right in that, because they both got back together and publicly announced it, but are they fame whores? I’m not sure why these two hate each other so much. It actually seems to be more from Adriana’s end. She seems so consumed in Joanna’s life and it is sad and desperate. Joanna seems less invested and just says things to fight back, but it’s Adriana who is so vicious and comes for Joanna like a pissed off vulture.
Lisa got accused of not being a good friends because she wouldn’t back her friend up. Except she’s not just blindly going to back someone up. What I like about her is that she tells you things how they are and doesn’t just spew what you WANT to hear!
Karent and Rodolfo are the next topic and Karent flashes her infamous smile revealing that she decided to leave Rodolfo. FINALLY. She said her family was more important at the time so she couldn’t focus on a relationship. This chick will never stop with the delusions will she? Ana begins shouting that Lea and Karent have a fake friendship since Lea comes to Karent’s rescue and the two seem to be buddy-buddy.
Lea gets up everytime she has something to say and it’s really kind of annoying. Someone put a seat belt on this lady. When she gets up to fire back at Ana, Ana tells her to sit down because she doesn’t want her to break a hip. LOL.
While Ana is going at it with Lea, Marysol takes the opportunity to jump in. Marysol is upset that Lea bashed her and her business all seasong long. Everything she has is her PR and event planning firm, so for Lea to bash it all season long, was very damaging. Lea says that the show follows her and her life, and she was not going to be fake about her feelings towards Marysol’s reputation and business. Marysol breaks into tears and Ana again comes to her defense and speaks for her.
Ana continues arguing with Lea and Lea deems it a “character assassination”. She tells Lea she is not self-made, married rich, did her best work while on her back, etc. It’s very insulting and a lot of viewers are wondering WHY Ana is being so “mean” to poor, little Lea. A lot of things happened off-camera that have pissed Ana off.
Apparently, Lea planned to attack Ana at the reunion which is why Ana came with her guard up. She also had tax returns she found that did not make Lea and her charity gala look so charitable, but Bravo seems to have edited this out! Ana promises to still release this info on her web site.
There is a film package that Andy shows regarding Joanna’s drinking and her temper while she is drunk. Joana claims she is not a drunk and does not have an alcoholic problem, she just gets a temper when she drinks and her big mouth gets even bigger. Adriana takes the chance to call her an alcoholic, call Joanna out on racism, and call her Ho-anna for the rest of the show. Okay, the Ho-anna thing was pretty damn funny, but still.
Like I said, the reunion was of RHONJ proportions and over WHAT exactly?! I’m not sure. Maybe it’s just the spicy Latinas in the room. It was a good show, though. Next week Mama Elsa and Alexia join the ladies and Andy! It seems like the claws are out and Mama Elsa is out to call some girls out. Same with Alexia and Karent. Things will continue heating up in Miami!
Very quiet was my girl Lisa. You know what they say about these reunions, whoever doesn’t deliver gets the boot. I hope this is not the case with my beloved Lisa!
What are your thoughts on this over-dramatic reunion? Do you think Ana was being desperate or just expressing herself? Is Adriana mean? Does she need to just let her dislike for Joanna go?
