'Real Housewives of Miami' Star Lisa Hochstein Defends Karent Sierra: 'She's One of the Sweetest People I Know' (VIDEO)
Fellow Miami housewife Lisa Hochstein has dubbed this the "I Hate Karent Sierra Club" -- and she's sick of everyone attacking her friend.
"She's one of the sweetest people I know," Hochstein told Celebuzz during an exclusive one-on-one interview with the reality star.
"Upon meeting her for the very first time, I instantly connected with her. I thought she had a great personality. She's very successful. She's bright and bubbly, and that can rub people the wrong way sometimes."
"She's very energetic. Some people might have a problem with that, obviously, as you see on the show," added Hochstein.
"I think she's great. She's just one of the sweetest people I've ever met. She's genuine, and she really doesn't mean any harm to anybody."Adriana de Moura and Alexia Echevarria confronted her and called her a copycat who thrives on the spotlight. Eventually, Echevarria asks her to leave the party.
Now, Sierra's relationship with her Latin soap star boyfriend Rodolfo Jimenez is under fire after fellow housewife Ana Quincoces claimed the actor was sending her text messages behind Sierra's back. However, Hochstein has her friend's back.
"They seem really in love," she said of Sierra and Jimenez's relationship. "They just have a normal relationship. I don't know why somebody would go that far and have a fake relationship. I think that's strange. Why would anybody do that? As far as the text messages, I wasn't there. I didn't know the situation. That could have been anything."
Meanwhile, Hochstein is steering clear of the Real Housewives drama. She'd rather have a good time with Marta Krupa, Joanna's little sister and her current house guest.
"The little sister I never had," gushed Hochstein.
Real Housewives of Miami airs Thursdays at 9PM ET on Bravo.
