Former Real Housewife Karent Sierra Will Go Skydiving With You

Life's been a series of highs and lows for Karent Sierra in the past year. Her appearance on season two of The Real Housewives of Miami led to a bump in fame, with new gigs visiting TV shows like The Doctors. But Sierra left the show before season three began filming; since then, she's also faced foreclosure on two real estate properties she owned. Last week, one of those homes was scheduled to be sold at auction.

But thanks to the redemptive power of online shopping, Sierra's about to hit another high. Literally -- about 10,000 ft. in the air high.

Groupon offered its users the chance to buy a skydiving experience with Sierra on Monday. Because when you think about extreme sports, you naturally think about a D-list celebrity dentist.

Groupon's offer is part of its new "Celebrity Epic Deal Series" in Miami, which pairs unique South Florida experiences with interactions with local famous faces. Here's what you'll do if you score the Groupon, according to the announcement:

Skydive with former housewife Karent Sierra: Grab two friends and experience the ultimate in thrill-seeking fun! You'll lunch on-base with Karent to dish on all of the behind-the-scenes gossip from her hit TV show, then learn the skydiving ropes with Miami Skydiving Center experts followed by a chance-of-a-lifetime jump.

Total cost: $2,500. Seeing if the constantly smiling Sierra keeps her happy face on even as she's plummeting towards the earth at up to 180 mph: Priceless.

The deal's been online since Monday, but so far no one's taken Sierra up on her offer to help you fall through the friendly skies.
