Stripes are always in style, but there are better ways to acquire them than landing yourself in the slammer.

Real Housewives of Miami star Karent Sierra was recently cuffed by Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel — but the arrest is not what you think!

Karent and other select local celebrities in the Fort Lauderdale community participated in a unique fundraiser for the American Cancer Society in which they are “arrested” by authorities and “sentenced” to raising pledges for the nonprofit by making phone calls.

The charges against Karent Sierra? A warrant for the reality starlet says she was cited for being “too pretty, too smart, and too sweet.” The horror!

After her arrest, Karent was put to work on the phone lines and managed to raise nearly $5,000 on her own for the organization.

Karent won’t be returning to Real Housewives of Miami for Season 3 and denied being fired from the show, citing her commitment to other programs like The Doctors and pursuing a burgeoning film career as reasons she is not coming back.

Still, she remains tight with some of her former co-stars.

“I’m still very close with Lisa, Joanna and Lea," Karent said. "I don’t really see Adriana, and I have nothing against her. I never see Alexia either. I have no problems with Adriana or Marysol and will leave it at that.”
