Later on, at a Claudio Milano product placement, Joanna and Karen’t go shopping together. According to Joanna, Claudio Milano is a hot, hot designer. According to me, merengue beauty queens shop there. Anywho, it’s the first time Joanna and Marta have had to talk about why all the other girls hate Karen’t, so get right to it. They try on dresses for Lea’s gala, and Joanna tells Karen’t that at Lea’s gala meeting, Adriana and Alexia were talking shit. She interviews she believes that since Adriana and Alexia don’t have jobs, they have too much time on their hands and are jealous of Karen’t, so that’s why they’re bullying her. Um, Jo? They both have jobs. They just hate Karen’t’s fucking guts because she’s really annoying. Sometimes people just don’t like you, and it has nothing to do with them being insecure or jealous of you. I know you’re a model and this is hard concept for you to grasp, but being pretty and successful does not preclude you from being a hot mess.
Karen’t brushes all of this off with a trademark wink and a smile, but then Joanna brings up the article in THE PAPER. (I’m cautiously assuming the Miami Herald wants nothing to do with this show in any real way, which is why it’s not mentioned by name in this episode.) Karen’t explains her harsh words by saying that she didn’t say them. She claims her words were twisted, which Joanna is more than ready to believe and the two women finish their shopping expedition more bonded than ever.
And now it’s time for another day and another shopping trip full of gossip –Goshipping if you will… or Shossiping… Take your pick and vote in the comments. I wish I could say more about it, but it’s just Adriana and Ana bitching about Karen’t and the article, Ana’s daughters being foul as usual, and Adriana picking out something pretty wicked and sacrilegious to wear (LOVE). Ana does drop a diamond of a comment about her “position” on lingerie – and she does have one. She’s not comfortable being in it in front of hundreds of people. Yay Ana! You’re not a famewhore, yet!
The main point of this segment was to highlight Adriana’s intent to confront Karen’t at the lingerie party should the two meet. Like anyone thought there was a cold chance in the helliest of hells of that not happening. Commercial.
The l’il funny bit this week begins with a local news segment featuring Joanna talking shit about Kim Kardashian (all in favor say “aye.” “AYE.”), and then Marta and Joanna making fun of Kim’s ass together. I don’t care about any of this, but I do hate Kim Kardashian, so… go Jo? Commercial!
Back to Lisa’s house for more pointing and directing from our fearless leader. Lenny’s looking appropriately nervous as Lisa interviews a little bit of insight about Marta. Apparently while Lisa’s “working” Marta is lounging about getting to know Lisa’s friends, sipping champagne, and in general being on an extended vacation. Aw, Lisa! This is your first real moocher! I’m so proud of you! A moocher’s one of the things on my list of stuff I want when I “make it,” see – infinity pool, boat.
