Joanna Krupa and Romain Zago continued to show their vulnerable sides on this week's episode of Real Housewives of Miami as they had a revelatory discussion with a sex therapist. So does the couple have any regrets?
Actually, Joanna feels that chatting with the sex therapist was tough but beneficial. "This was the most intense and personal episode for me and Romain out of all the past seasons," she writes in her Bravo blog. "Going to a sex therapist and opening up about our intimate problems on national TV is already challenging, and I admire Romain for that." But discussing his past was "something he has never done before with me or even with his own family."
Romain told the sex therapist that he was abused by his stepmom, and what he actually endured was even worse than what we all heard on the episode. "Romain revealed to me after the therapy that his childhood with that specific monster of a stepmom was actually way worse than he described," Joanna says. "She put him through things that even the devil wouldn't be capable of doing."
Joanna says that Romain is continuing to work through his issues. "He still has so much inner trauma, and the kindness that he always shows is what makes him so likable and real," Joanna explains. "Still, Romain doesn't blame his past for his current problems. He never looks for excuses, and he is willing to work through our problems to make our relationship work."
All in all, the couple credits the show with making them stronger. "We are doing great now, stronger than ever, and we must really thank #RHOM, which is enabling us to open ourselves up to our personal problems and discover our past struggles that have so much influence on our lives now; something we just didn't know," she writes. "Most people always blame reality TV for breaking a relationship; in our case, it has strengthened it."
We're glad to hear it, and we're proud of Romain for being so open.
