With the new season of The Real Housewives of Miami premiering on Thursday, we wanted to get to know the new ladies. Bravo added four new housewives to Season 2, hoping it would spice up the ratings! And as we reported earlier, the drama is promised to be 100% authentic! So let’s get to know the new additions to the Miami cast.
Born in Warsaw, Poland and raised in Chicago, Joanna Krupa is a supermodel and TV host who splits her time between Miami and Los Angeles. At 19, she decided to pick up and leave everything behind and move to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of modeling and acting. Joanna has appeared on magazine covers including GQ, FHM, Shape, and Playboy. In addition, Maxim magazine named her the “Sexiest Swimsuit Model in the World” and listed her as part of their “Hot 100” ranking of the world’s hottest women in 2011. This versatile beauty has guest starred on episodes of Las Vegas, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and has been hosting and judging Poland’s Next Top Model since 2010. She also competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2009 with one-time champion Derek Hough. A huge supporter of the animal rights group PETA, Joanna has starred in several ads for the group including her controversial ad “anger for animals.” She has been engaged to Romain Zago, owner of Miami’s Mynt night club for five years. Her younger sister Marta and mom Jolanta are very active in her life and live with her while in Miami.
Ana Quincoces is a straight-shooting Cuban dynamo who tells it like it is. She is a successful business woman who is a partner at her law firm, in addition to being a celebrity chef and cookbook author. Voted Miami’s “Hottest Chef” by Eater Magazine in 2011, Ana insists her greatest achievements in life are her two daughters, Kati, 20, and Beba, 19. The girls have an undeniably strong, though sometimes unorthodox, relationship with Ana and their father, Robert. Even though Ana and her girls no longer live under the same roof as Robert, they still maintain a strong family bond and continue to share family dinners together several times a week.
Born in New York City and raised in South Florida, Dr. Karent Sierra is Miami’s No. 1 celebrity dentist who firmly believes that creating “perfect” smiles can change lives. After attending dental school in Wisconsin, she opened up her own private practice in Coral Gables and now refers to herself as a Miami native through and through. Always one to keep her Colombian heritage alive, Karent moved her retired parents into her mansion and has been dating her telenovela star boyfriend, Rodolfo Jiménez, for the past two-and-a-half years. With a heart of gold and smile to match, the former beauty queen reigned as “Miss Carnival Miami” in 1992 and was a featured model on Latin TV working on various commercials, infomercials, and enjoying stints as a hand model.
A self-proclaimed “professional housewife,” Lisa Hochstein is married to legendary Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Lenny Hochstein, who is known as the “Boob God” of Miami. Married in 2009 at their gorgeous Sunset Island mansion, Lisa and Lenny have been leaving their mark on the Miami social scene ever since. After traveling the world together to exotic locales like Venice, St. Tropez, and Paris, the couple recently purchased a house on Star Island where they plan to move next year with their two dogs, Puffy and Leo. This 29-year-old beauty made three appearances in Playboy magazine and can often be found shopping, lounging, and hanging out with her maid and friend, Daysy.
