Considering numerous Real Housewives have been in the news more for their legal battles than their television show, the latest development connected to the reality show only makes sense.
Joanna Krupa, one of the stars of Real Housewives of Miami, is suing Brandi Glanville of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, for making comments about her allegedly smelly lady parts.
Glanville has spent three seasons on the Beverly Hills edition of the show, and is best known for being the ex-wife of D-list actor Eddie Cibrian before he left her for country star Leann Rimes. Krupa meanwhile is a former model who spent time competing on Dancing With the Stars before winding up on the Miami franchise. Despite being on separate coasts in separate shows, the two have managed to strike up an ugly feud.
In 2013, Glanville appeared on the Bravo talk show Watch What Happens Live! and said that she had heard Krupa slept with yet another housewife's ex-husband, and that the ex-husband had told her that Krupa's intimate area had an unpleasant odor.
Meanwhile, Krupa responded by appearing in public in a "Team Rimes" shirt, taking a shot at the events that lead up to the end of Glanville's marriage.
Apparently the feud could now lead to legal action. Krupa had her Miami attorneys from the firm Rafool and Hernandez whip up a letter informing Glanville that she intended to sue for defamation, according to TMZ.
"On Florida, national and international media, you again falsely stated that Mrs. Krupa's vagina was of bad odor asking Andy Cohen, in relation to Mrs. Krupa, if he get food poisoning from bad sushi and ending your statements by saying that Mrs. Krupa is stunning, 'you can't help the odor situation.'"
The letter alleges that Glanville knew those statements were false. The letter also claims that not only do Krupa's lady parts of fine smell, that she also never slept with the other cast member's ex-husband.
It then goes on to say that Krupa and her husband Romain Zago, a Miami nightclub entrepreneur, intend to sue Glanville under Florida law.
