Guerdy Abraira isn’t subscribing to any sort of hierarchy when it comes to The Real Housewives of Miami.
The Guerdy Design founder joined the Peacock series alongside other new additions and a slew of returning original cast members for its fourth season, the show’s first in nearly a decade. After that much time away, the show’s return made for an interesting dynamic among the cast: Should the newbies tread lightly among some of their co-stars who are considered to be Real Housewives royalty? Or did the reboot represent a leveling of the playing field? It depends on who you ask.
For the latest episode of In The Know by Yahoo’s pop culture interview series We Should Talk, Guerdy opened up about that push and pull between original stars being territorial and new additions seeking to assert themselves. She also discussed her ongoing drama with Alexia Echevarria, the latest on Lisa Hochstein’s contentious divorce and the receipts she’s hoping to bring up at the upcoming Season 5 reunion taping.
“We are your reboot, so you’re welcome. That’s all I want to say about it. We’re starting fresh. What happened eight to 10 years ago, I don’t care about because I wasn’t part of that group. That was a different dynamic. We’re a new dynamic now. We’re a reboot,” she told In The Know. “Let’s be thankful for each other, let’s respect each other and let’s start from zero up. Not like, ‘Well, you guys are at 50, and we’re at zero.’ The show was canceled for a reason, obviously, so it wasn’t my fault. We’re here, you’re welcome, and let’s do this thing together.”
“It’s a chip on the shoulder,” Guerdy went on. “Yes, of course, they’re going to have bigger fanbases from the beginning, so it’s an entitlement thing. It’s like, ‘We’re back now! Let’s show these girls the pecking order.’ I’ve never been part of it. I never joined a sorority and never wanted to, because I am me and I am OK. I’ve never felt the way I feel with this group, where it’s very dismissive and the mean-girl thing.”
