Adriana de Moura is known for stirring up trouble on the Real Housewives of Miami. Typically, her feuds occur with another OG cast member, Larsa Pippen, over Brazillian Butt Lift rumors and her friendship with Kim Kardashian. However, her most recent dispute is with another Real Housewives veteran: Alexia Echevarria. Adriana and Alexia appeared in Seasons 1 through 3 of RHOM from 2011 to 2013 on Bravo before the show’s reboot aired on Peacock in 2021. Despite Adriana only appearing in a recurring role for Seasons 4 and 5, that doesn’t mean she can’t bring the Miami heat.
Several changes were made to the cast in the reboot. In addition to Larsa, Alexia, Adriana, and Lisa Hochstein, newbies Guerdy Abraira, Nicole Martin, and Julia Lemigova were added. Nicole is a certified anesthesiologist, while Guerdy is an event planner. Additionally, Julia is the first openly LGBTQ+ Housewife ever. However, despite the diversity among the cast, they may be less inclusive than fans would have hoped.
During RHOM Season 4, an episode featured some of the ladies at an LGBTQ+ pride event. According to Adriana, “Alexia was shaming a trans woman at a Pride event,” per Page Six. “If you look at the footage on Season 4 when she’s going to be the marshal of the Pride parade in Miami in Wynwood, she’s sitting there with her then-fiancé, Todd [Nepola].”

Adriana explained Todd was admiring the women on stage and found himself attracted to Godfrey Arbulu specifically. “That’s a man, that’s a man,” De Moura recalled Alexia saying. “That’s a guy, that’s a guy,” she said to her husband before he replied, “I know … I know.”
After the episode aired, Wynwood Pride, the event’s host, tweeted about Alexia’s statements. “We are very disappointed in Alexia’s comments about one of our performers, we are even more disappointed that Bravo / Peacock would allow these transphobic comments to be aired on national television.”
Despite Adriana’s comments, the Real Housewives star has been vocal about supporting the LGBT+ community. Season 4 of RHOM focused primarily on Alexia as she continued to process her ex-husband’s death and the news that he was secretly gay. “I would have loved for him to have come out and had this conversation because I would have supported him and helped him.” She added, “And hooked him up with all my cute gay friends,” Alexia finished.
