Getting married should be a happy time, right? Don't tell that to the family members of a certain Real Housewives of Miami star.
In a preview video clip from next week's episode, we see Joanna Krupa and Romain Zago call his family members one-by-one to tell them that they've set their wedding date for June 13, 2013, and the reaction isn't what you might expect.
"We called you to tell you that we finally decided on a date to get married," Romain tells his biological mom over Skype. But she tells him that the date won't work for her. "I have to be operated, my back once again," his mom laments. Uh, couldn't she have given them a heads-up on that operation ahead of time?
"I know it really would mean the world to him to have her there because they're not as close as mother and son should be — but they're still working on it," Joanna says of Romain. "He's trying to put a happy face, but deep inside, I know he's heartbroken."
Then, the couple calls Romain's dad, whom Joanna has never even met. But again, the result is the same, as Romain's dad says he won't be there but wants to meet Joanna soon. "I know Romain's making excuses for him, but I would be devastated," Joanna says of neither of Romain's parents attending the wedding.
Finally, they call Romain's brother Laurent, who says he's not sure if he can make it either. "What's wrong with my family today?" Romain asks. But Romain later tells Joanna that he's confident Laurent will make it. "My brother has to come — he has no choice," Romain explains. "I just think he's, like, torturing me."
Poor Romain! Let's hope at least someone from his fam can attend their special day.
