‘Real Housewives of Miami’s’ Marysol Patton Talks Karent’s Hellish Dinner, Joanna and Adriana’s Fight (Q&A)
Viewers and partygoers alike were stunned watching Patton’s mother Elsa going head-to-head with the infamous Thomas Kramer on Thursday’s episode. The showdown took place at a dinner party Kramer and castmember Dr. Karent Sierra hosted for the other housewives.
Celebuzz spoke with Patton to discuss her thoughts on Mama Elsa and Kramer squaring off, her take on Joanna Krupa and Adriana De Moura’s battle royale, and what it is about Karent that rubs the other ladies the wrong way.
Celebuzz: Mama Elsa is getting in the middle of things, again, which we all love. What can you tell us about what’s going on at this dinner with Lea and how your mother gets involved?
Marysol Patton: Well, I had left at that point but I know that once I saw the commercials, I said to mother, ‘What happened?’ and she said that Lea was getting loud and she was telling Lea, ‘Lea, settle down, lower your voice.’ And then Thomas started screaming, ‘You don’t tell my quests what to do.’ And my mother’s been like Thomas’ mother for like 20 years. I’ve sat at dinners with Thomas’ mother sitting there and he’ll tell his own mother, ‘Elsa’s more of a mother to me than you are.’ So, when he loses his mind, and I’ve seen him throw dignitaries and celebrities out of his house, there’s always someone at every dinner party that he targets and he throws out. I’ve seen it happen over two decades. I’ve never seen him do it to my mother.
MP: In the moment, I didn’t know anyone had been slapped until I saw the commercials. I had heard rumblings from the producers. ‘What did you think of the slap?’ and I said, ‘I didn’t know there was a slap.’ And they’re like, ‘It’s the first bitch slap in Housewife history. It’s the biggest thing ever.’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about? I never saw that.’ It was the one time I wasn’t standing right there for the chaos.
CB: Karent has gotten a lot of flack for being a social climber and getting in the middle of the other women’s relationships. Do you think she earned that or do think she’s getting a bad rap?
MP: I just think that a lot of us feel the same way. We all talk and we all agree. We don’t think she’s a bad person or a malicious person at all. We just think that she’s very, I guess the word we all use is overzealous. And then everyone else is kind of chill and just rolling with everything and then I guess it just rubs everyone the wrong way, the overzealousness and excitement to jump into the middle of everything. But, I don’t believe that anybody here — regardless of what you’ve seen — thinks she’s like a bad girl, or bad person or that she does it calculated or in a malicious way.
The Real Housewives of Miami airs Thursdays at 9 PM on Bravo.
