Apparently there was an article (in the PAPER) that quoted Karen’t calling the ladies “classless” and “botox for brains.” Many thanks to labowner (Labowner?) for posting the transcript which can be read here at number 3. Adriana could not be more excited to add more fuel to the fire, but Joanna brings up the fairly valid point that journalist are notorious for twisting the words of those they interview. I’m not talking New York Times/Onion journalists, I’m talking the kind of “journalists” who interview Karen’t “I’m a doctor AND an actress!” Sierra BEFORE she’s on the second season of one of the lowest-rated Bravo Housewives franchise. Also, thanks to the clip of the article we can all read, it’s readily apparent that Karen’t is NOT quoted saying “botox for brains” or “classless.” You can tell because there aren’t any quotes around those words with a “Ms. Sierra said” printed before or after them.
Joanna interviews that she’s not too sure how she feels about Adriana in the aftermath of the whole Romain flirting thing, so she’s not about to get on the other woman’s side hating Karen’t. Jo’s logic is that Karen’t has never done anything nasty toward HER. Lea, once again, is the smartest person in the room interviewing that Karen’t probably shouldn’t have said those things, but since “botox for brains” doesn’t apply to her, she’s not going to get upset. She also stresses that everyone needs to put it aside for HER event. Lea: 1, Drama: 0.
And, honestly, I know we’ve heard a lot about what Alexia thinks about Karen’t, but we haven’t heard a lot about what MARYSOL thinks about Karen’t, so the show follows the latter to Alexia’s house, and they sit out by the pool to discuss what they think about Karen’t. I’ll give you a hint. They don’t like her. Commerical!
We return to Joanna heading to Lisa’s house for a Peta photo shoot. Lisa’s nowhere to be found, so Marta answers the door. Joanna interviews that it’s weird to go to Lisa’s house and have Marta answer the door. She claims that Marta is HER sister. HERS! Joanna, trust me. Lisa is the ONLY person who’s trying to take Marta anywhere, and she’s only doing it because she’s sick of Daysy trying to spoon all the time. Anywho, let’s get to the part of this segment that REALLY made me want to vomit – the merkin! Peta, in its infinite wisdom (exhibited here), has decided it would be provocative and humorous to show Joanna Krupa in a skimpy bikini sporting a GIANT FAKE BUSH. The idea is to tell people to grow their own fur and to stop wearing animal fur. The amount of camera time spent focusing on Jo’s crotch and the forest bursting from the tiny string bikini hanging on for dear life is five minutes too many.
GROSS. NOT PROVOCATIVE.
Joanna claims that people who don’t have a sense of humor will complain, and I object strongly to that statement. I have a large(ly inappropriate) sense of humor and I think this campaign is fucking stupid. No rich white lady on walking around the Upper East Side in NYC (the only known people still wearing fur in America) is either going to see this ad or be swayed by it. The rest of us are just going to be have this image burned into our brains for the rest of eternity.
