Joanna Krupa is taking to her Bravo Blog to reveal why she gave Lisa Hochstein an ultimatum about being a bridesmaid in her wedding. Joanna says Lisa is a little high maintenance and why would she pick someone that isn’t loyal to her when she has many friends that are. Joanna also clarifies that at dinner at Koi her mother didn’t know they were talking about Adriana de Moura.
Joanna writes, “Lisa was staying with me and I was happy to have her stay in order for her to get to know my mom, but I won’t lie, I was scared she was going to be high maintenance and complain about her room (I remember that from our trip to Bimini), so I asked my mom to make sure to go to the store before we arrive to buy the most comfortable pillow bedding and bathroom towels and also buy new accessories for the bathroom to make sure Lisa would be comfortable.
Seeing my mom work so hard and always having a smile on her face made me very ambitious, and I wanted to make her proud one day. That is why I won’t let anyone stand in my way and put me down, because life is hard as it is and you don’t need people that don’t wish you well.
That is why I gave Lisa an ultimatum. All the friends that I have in my life are loyal, and I can count on them in any situation. Why should I choose Lisa as a bridesmaid when I have friends that have been in my life for 17 years that are like my family? Why should I make room for Lisa and not include one of my true, loving friends that have been with me through the hardest times in my life and make them a bridesmaid? I think I had every right to question Lisa’s loyalty as a friend, because she is friends with someone that not only physically assaulted me, but someone that has called me an escort in the press and tried to hurt my reputation and hurt me intentionally. How can I trust someone that is friends with a person that’s been so vindictive and malicious? It makes me question what kind of friends Lisa has. And it makes me question our friendship if she can be friends with people like that.
I am not here to tell Lisa who to be friends with, but Lisa is the one that keeps dropping the hints she wants to be a bridesmaid at my wedding… Is it that she really wants to be a bridesmaid because she cares about me, or because she wants to be the double agent that gets to be a bridesmaid in two weddings? I take my wedding very seriously, since it’s my first wedding and it’s my special day. I want only true, loving friends there with good energy, not people that just want to be in a wedding. When I get married, I will be proud to be married and tell the whole world I am married, not hide my marriage. I will embrace it. In my mind, I didn’t think I was asking for too much to have Lisa choose to prove her friendship to me.
When we all were at Koi having dinner, my mom had no clue that we were speaking about THAT Adriana, so when I came home that evening I had a talk with her and she apologized for butting in. Knowing her, the conversation at Koi would have gone in a different direction, because she was very hurt about the cruel things Adriana said about me to the press. But my mom never met Adriana and had no idea that was the woman Lisa and I were having an argument about. But since my mom is a forgiver, and even though she made a mistake at dinner, it had me thinking about the whole situation…”
