Remember Real Housewives Of Miami? Of course you do – it was that show that wasn’t actually a Housewives show, but got put on the air when Andy Cohen realized when the fourth season of Real Housewives Of New York City wasn’t doing well, it was better to just put some new, unknown show on the air. While ratings for the season weren’t great and internet interest was not very high, the live reunion caused a stir and ended up reviving the show from the dead.
Currently, the cast is filming in Miami a second season and making a public spectacle of themselves. Having dropped basketball wives Cristy Rice and Larsa Pippen, the show has added model and Dancing With The Stars vet, Joanna Krupa, who lives in the area with her husband, club owner Romain Zago. In an interesting twist of fate, Romain, apparently, once refused to even entertain the idea of Jersey Shore filming in his precious nightclub, Mynt, when the producers for that show were scouting possible Miami locations.
It looks like Romain got over his attitude about reality shows infecting the air of his club; last week the Housewives crew was spotted not only filming there, but they caught Joanna and Romain in the middle of some drama.
An insider reveals to the Miami Herald that Joanna got into a tiff with the DJ spinning that night; “While miked last night, Joanna Krupa stood in front of the DJ’s booth, flipping him birds and cursing him out. Apparently the DJ had a rough break-up last year with Joanna’s sister. Romain ripped off his mic and stormed outside to try to cool off.”
However, don’t get your hopes up. Joanna may have been putting on an act for her new Bravo paycheck. The source also says there was some staging at Roman’s club behind the scenes, revealing “Apparently, they had a ‘staged’ employee meeting so that all can see how big a happy family they all are. Everybody who works there was of course rolling their eyes over the hypocrisy. Apparently even the silent investors made it in, which they never do, [but did it] just for the ruse.”
If the staging rumor is true, let’s hope everyone involved in this show has gotten some acting lessons.
Further confirming that Joanna is indeed a part of the cast, Marysol Patton is pictured above with her alongside her sister Marta Krupa on March 2 during the Opening Night Gala for the World Premiere of “Mariachi Gringo” in Miami.
