Dr. Karent Sierra, Lea Black and Marysol Patton visit denial island on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Miami.

The women of RHOM sure know how to crush a vacation. Last week, Alexia Echevarria destroyed Karent’s bliss when she revealed her beau Rodolfo Jiménez  had  a current relationship with someone else. Karent refused to believe what she was told, unless Alexia saw with her own eyes, Dr. Karent wasn’t about to call a time of death on her romance. Is Karent living in a fantasy world?

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched “Surrounded by Hot Water.”

A day after Alexia spilled the tea about Karent’s boyfriend, the perky dentist still denied anything was wrong with her relationship. Karent remained firm that Alexia, Marysol Patton, Adriana De Moura and Ana Quincoces  wanted to see her hurt and cause drama. Lea demanded Karent take a stand and find out what happened with Rodolfo, so she can shut the other women up. Lea couldn’t understand why Karent won’t stop the madness and confront the situation head on. Doesn’t Karent want to know if her man’s cheating? Karent maintained she had nothing to prove to anyone. Her relationship was as firm as a baby’s behind.

Later that night, Karent opted out of dinner after she learned her father was sick. The ladies headed to dinner and decided they were all about a stress-free vacation and time to get close with each other. Alexia insisted she was for harmony and girl power but, when Joanna Krupa and Lisa Hochstein brought up the subject of Karent, dinner took a nasty turn. Alexia remarked she had no qualms with Karent, but felt like Karent wasn’t genuine about things. Ana and Marysol also chimed in and said they wanted Karent to be authentic and own up to things. Lea couldn’t agree more and used the opportunity to have a face-off with Marysol over her problems she had with the PR maven’s business practices.

Lea accused Marysol of not being professional when the socialite’s charity partnered up with Marysol’s PR company. Lea claimed Marysol never accepted any responsibility for the bad job her PR firm did with her events and attempts to sabotage Elaine Lancaster. Marysol feigned ignorance to Lea’s complaints, she  remarked things with Elaine are ok and her PR company was stellar at all events. Marysol’s PR firm made Lea’s charity relevant, so what’s the problem? Lea was appalled by the things Marysol denied and wanted it to stop. A fed up Ana told the women to get over their issues and make up already! The women agreed to put an end to their tiff, they were friends after all.
