'Real Housewives of Miami' Recap: Adriana De Moura Needs a Reality Check

Adriana De MouraOh boy, what an episode of The Real Housewives of Miami that was. From Alexia Echevarria's ridiculous closet remodeling scene (did she seriously tumble onto the bed with her designer in ecstasy?) to Lisa Hochstein giving her maid plastic surgery as a bonus for a job well done, it's clear these women are not living in the real world. Not that Real Housewives ever are, but Miami takes things up a notch and then some.

The prize for most delusional and least grounded of them all, however, has got to go to Adriana De Moura. She claims that just because she didn't feel married, it means she wasn't married. When pressed, she admitted that there was more than just a marriage license as she tries to make everyone believe, there was an actual wedding. But never mind that, it wasn't the one of her dreams, so it doesn't count ... according to her.

She simply can't understand why no else gets this, or why it would piss off her former best friend Lea Black whom she's been lying to all these years.

Last week I was slightly torn as to whom I believed in this whole mess, but tonight I jumped firmly on Team Lea, because Adriana seems like an ungrateful, spoiled brat. Lea helped her out because she thought she was a single, struggling mom, but she wasn't. She was married.

As Lea pointed out, she would have helped her anyway had she known that she was married. It's the fact that she lied about it though that makes her feel like she was duped. "Why would you lie to me like that?" she asked. Adriana had no answer and started spouting off about Lea's draconian ways and accusing her of plotting her demise. (Adriana's nothing if not dramatic.)

She never stopped to apologize and acknowledge the help that Lea has given her over the years, rather she just kept attacking her and accused her of planting articles in the press about her secret marriage. Lea denied it, but does it really matter? She lied for six years about being married. I'd be pissed too.

The episode ended with Adriana storming out and standing in the pouring rain while she tried to call a cab. Lea went after her with an umbrella, and we'll have to wait until next week to see if they keep fighting, begin to reconcile, or break out into a song-and dance number -- with RHOM, anything could happen. 

Team Lea or Team Adriana?

I don't think you paid enough attention to what Adriana said.. She had a marriage license but never went through with the wedding ceremony because her son was against the whole idea of seeing mom getting married so soon after a divorce. In the state of Florida, you must have a marriage license and ceremony to be legally married.

Adriana had a license AND was married. Vows and all. She is on the wrong show. Adriana should be on Devious Maids or in jail for theft by deception. How desperate and dumb do you have to be to steal from a criminal atty's wife?

I think when she married what's his name she was on the show right? After lea had helped her out I remember it the first season. If that's true then lea is being ridiculous because that was before she had the ceremony.

I totally agree with this article. I couldn't believe the way Adriana acted. Lea was used by Adriana. Then Adriana attacked Lea. WOW!!!! Adriana is liar, she got caught in a lie, then projected that on Lea. She is trash!

Turns out she is a REAL housewife after all...

You have not been properly following Adriana's story. She filed for the license but never went thru with the wedding. Her fiance Frederic called off the wedding 2 weeks before the ceremony. So Adriana didn't lie. Meanwhile the snake in the grass Lea knew all along about Adriana's situation for years and leaked the story quietly to a reporter friend of hers in Miami. Lea was just angry at Adriana for not coming to her rescue as Anna was exposing all the dirt from Lea's past. If you been paying close attention. Anna dug up some serious dirt on Lea and her charity. The money seems to come in but doesn't go out.

WOW!! I have met women like Adriana, ungrateful and disrespectful. Well as Judge Judy would say the helper is always in the wrong, this should be no surprise to Lea.

Ok for everyone on here saying Adriana only had a marriage license and not a certificate, take a deep breath, she lied! She received the marriage license on Nov 4th but was married on Dec 4th of the same year! She also has said she called off the marriage because of her son and his feelings and then in the next scene has a staged fight with her HUSBAND blaming him for calling off the wedding. It is all BS! I think the people who believe Adriana are also the people who think Tersea didn't know that they were committing fraud.

Some of you people didn't pay attention. Adrianna got a marriage lisence in Oct then got married in Dec. it must have been a civil ceremony. So she's lying about her son not wanting her to marry Fredric. She also lied to Lea about being married . She's been married for 5-6 years. She got caught in a huge lie in which she can't lie her way out of. She's do angry because she got caught. I'm sick of her already & it's only the 3rd episode!

Adriana is a liar and fake. A bona fide con artist.
