The Real Housewives of Miami - Season 3

For every bout of bad behavior, every Bravo star has a sob story and tiny violin to play to explain it away.  Real Housewives of Miami's Adriana de Moura is no exception.  Listen, I'm not discounting a troubled youth or a sad home life or awful relationships which lead to low self-esteem, but don't we all have these same issues on some level or another?

Where else should these "explanations" be aired but on their Bravo blog?  Adriana uses hers this week to share why she has such trust issues and why meeting with the minister was so important to her and her husband fiance Frederic.  


Adriana writes, "Going to see the church with Frederic and meeting with the minister was very important, because that made us realize our childhood does shape us and affects us for the rest of our lives. Choices made by our parents while we are children can later affect us and unconsciously shape our adult life."

Sharing that her abandonment issues are a product of what she saw as a child, Adriana reveals, "My difficulty trusting men and the latent fear of being abandoned by them was rooted in the divorce of my parents — my father cheated on my mother and after that left our family. I was the eldest of four kids and many nights went to sleep hearing my mother cry."

Continuing, Adriana blogs, "From then on I lived with demons that controlled me and made me believe that men would eventually cheat on me and leave me sooner or later. So my guard was always up, and although I acted tough, deep inside I felt like a fragile little girl starving for love and always seeking approval. Hence, the symbolic burning of my wedding dress that had been hanging in the closet for many years. I wanted to burn all the years of fear, mistrust, and pain that I had gone through."

 So there you have it, folks.  Adriana is just a sweet, misguided woman with a past.  Um, aren't most of us?
