We can’t even imagine how much wheeling and dealing goes on when the cameras aren’t rolling on a Real Housewives show. But a plot to get another cast member fired? That almost seems normal in this reality franchise!

According to The Miami Herald, ladies from the Real Housewives of Miami cast reportedly conspired to get co-star Adriana de Moura canned from the show.

The reason? Apparently, Adriana lied about not being married to boyfriend Frederic Marq. The two plan to wed on May 17 in Miami, but public records show Adriana and Frederic have actually been married since November 4, 2008!

“Some of the cast members got wind of the fact that they were going to be axed and conspired to try to get Adriana fired from the show for lying to Bravo in order to save their own asses,” an insider told the Herald. “They put it out there and it backfired because Adriana was asked back.”

Indeed, Adriana de Moura and her lavish wedding will be prominently featured in Real Housewives of Miami Season 3, which she reportedly hopes will help overshadow the storylines of her fellow Housewives — especially Joanna Krupa. Adriana was allegedly overheard griping about how RHOM has become “the Joanna show.”

“Adriana is doing whatever she can to become the breakout star,” the source said. “Frederic is trying to recruit beautiful people as their ‘friends’ to attend the wedding. Adriana is determined to be the star of the show and outshine Joanna at all costs.”

But Joanna isn’t the only target of Adriana’s ire.

“Adriana blames Lea Black for leaking the story to the press,” said the insider of Adriana’s marriage license appearing in media outlets.

While we take the “reality” part of any Real Housewives shows with a grain of salt, a fake wedding and plot to get a cast member sacked is still pretty ridiculous!
