Martina Navratilova Says She “Runs Away” From Real Housewives Cameras During Filming; Martina Says She’s Only On The Show Out Of Love For Julia Lemigova

Peacock has graced us with the return of the Real Housewives of Miami and baby, is it DELIVERING or what? The reboot features familiar faces (I use that term loosely considering all of the glow-ups in the cast) like Larsa Pippen, Alexia Echevarria, and Marysol Patton. They are also a few newbies thrown into the mix, like Nicole Martin and Guerdy Abraira. But one newbie, Julia Lemigova, is not only making waves by being part of the first LGBTQ+ Real Housewives couple, but also causing drama with her veryyyyy close friendship with Adriana de Moura. The Miami ladies understood the assignment, and we are all better off.

Julia is a wacky personality that RHOM needed to off-balance the ultra-glamorous OGs. She’s a more simple girl with life on her farm, preferring the company of goats and chickens (and their poop). She helms from Russia and has lived quite an interesting life. She’s married to tennis legend Martina Navratilova and they seem to be very in love. But that doesn’t stop her from rubbing Adriana’s feet and kissing her to get her out of sticky situations, to Martina’s disapproval.

Martina was recently interviewed for WTA Tour about her new gig as a housewife to a housewife. While she says Julia loves the show, Martina admits trying to “run away from cameras” to stay out of the limelight. She added that the only reason she appears is a labor of love for Julia. “It goes beyond compromise,” Martina said. Honestly, I’m a bit confused by their relationship. Julia seems very open and fun-loving while Martina gets jealous pretty easily. She just seems like she hates the entire experience of RHOM and that’s the type of energy to burn out a star like Julia before it’s even shined its brightest.

Julia’s wifey also threw another dig at her spouse for her new gig. “You know, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. Julia is the housewife — but I’m the one doing most of the cleaning,” Martina said. “She gets paid, and I get nothing. I do my work, but … she’s done so much work on that; it just mushroomed.” It’s hard to tell someone’s tone through text, but is Martina coming off a little bitter to anyone else? I’ll need to see more RHOM to get a better understanding, but something is off about this situation. And you know who knows EXACTLY what’s going on? Miss Adriana, the queen of Miami.
