It was another crazy episode for Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa. Her sister Marta moved back in after weeks of fighting and taking a hiatus over at Lisa’s house. Over at Thomas Kramer’s disgusting dinner from hell, Joanna was also a target for him when he said inappropriate things regarding her relationship to Romain and his fidelity.
Joanna took to her Bravo blog to share some background on why she is so overprotective of Marta and why it seems like she’s a controlling mom to her:
I practically helped raise my sister, and I was always told that family is priority and nothing is more important. When Marta moved out, I felt a part of me missing. No matter how much we argue and don’t get along sometimes (even though we make up in minutes), we love each other and would kill for one another. I know at times I get a little too protective and I need to learn to let her go because she is a grown woman. To me in life nothing else matters but family. I don’t care about money; if I had to trade it all in just to have a happy life, I would do it in a heartbeat. That is why I fight so much to protect Marta and everyone around me that I care about. Sometimes it comes off as if I am holding her hostage, not letting her fly and be on her own to figure out her own life. As an older sister, I have always felt it’s my responsibility to make sure Marta is taken care of, so when she moved backed in to our apartment in Miami, I felt at ease because I was sad not having her with me while she is living in the same city.
Joanna also discussed the stupid remarks Thomas Kramer made and explains why she didn’t end up leaving his house after she had already stormed off the table:
Since I grew up so fast helping raise Marta, it also taught me to fight for myself and protect those that I care about. I won’t lie and say that I wasn’t disappointed at Thomas Kramer’s when no one said a word as he disrespected Romain. Especially because Romain was going through some tough personal issues at the time, which is why I was so sensitive to the comment Thomas made.
I also couldn’t believe how he treated poor Elsa. No one stood up for her, and I kept quiet because I didn’t want to be included in any more of the disrespect and drama. I will say I regret very much that I didn’t end up leaving with Ana. The only thing that held me back was that I did not want to start another argument with Romain, even though Thomas Kramer’s house isn’t Romain’s choice of entertainment and the only reason we went was for Karent. Romain probably would have totally understood why I left, but I didn’t want to cause a scene. I was appalled at the way the ladies allowed him to speak to them; no amount of money or status should allow that, because a woman always needs to have a self-esteem and self-worth. It took a lot for me to hold back at the dinner, but it was for the sake of my relationship, and I won’t lose sleep if I never step foot in that house again in my life.
Joanna needs to let Marta be because she is a grown adult already and hasn’t really done anything for herself. Whether she loves her so much or not, she needs to push her out of the nest so that they stop bickering and so that Marta isn’t involved in their relationship drama. I think Joanna should have LEFT Thomas Kramer’s house and I think Romain would have totally understood! I am not getting her reasoning for coming back.
