Real Housewife reunions are known for being ugly. But none have been as down and dirty as the one that aired on Nov. 11 for the third season of the Real Housewives of Miami...and we’ve only seen part one!
During the brutal episode, former close pals Lisa Hochstein and Joanna Krupa both went for the jugular, with Joanna blaming Lisa’s fertility struggles on her hard partying and Lisa implying that Joanna had once worked as an escort. But Lisa’s not leaving it at that. In an exclusive interview with Wetpaint Entertainment, she had a few more choice words for her newfound nemesis.
Wetpaint Entertainment: When we left off at the season finale, you were a bridesmaid in Joanna’s wedding. What happened between the wedding and the reunion taping that turned things so nasty between the two of you?
In between the wedding and the reunion, I was able to see full episodes of the show and read Joanna’s interviews in the press. It became very clear to me she was no friend of mine. It actually seemed like she hated my guts! I feel like a moron for believing this person was my friend. Other people had warned me she’s a complete fake and a phony, but I had given her the benefit of the doubt.
How did it feel when she implied that drinking and partying was the reason you’ve been unable to get pregnant?
I felt punched in the face. I was so blindsided - it was like I was having an out of body nightmare. And this was coming from someone who had pretended to be my friend! You know, it’s funny. In the weeks prior to the reunion, she had started really reaching out to me again. Looking back, I think she was just trying to play me and disarm me.
What does your husband, Lenny, think of what Joanna said?
My husband is absolutely livid. He doesn’t want me to associate myself with that kind of trash, someone who blatantly lies like that. She doesn’t take any responsibility for the things that come out of her mouth.
There was a rumor going around that you and Lenny were preparing to sue Joanna over her statements…
I can’t discuss that right now.
Okay, what about next season? If the show gets renewed for a fourth season, will you be able to film with Joanna?
Who knows what’s going to happen? But I will say this. Joanna looked into my eyes at the reunion and I saw the devil. She’s a dangerous person. People who have nothing to lose, they’re dangerous.
Part Two of the Real Housewives of Miami reunion airs Thursday, November 14 at 9 pm on Bravo
