Gotta disagree with you on Halle learning her lesson, given the big fight between her ex and her new guy at Thanksgiving. Poor beautiful Halle...she just doesn't have a good man-picker.
I also didn't see the other women as getting glee from telling Karent...they seemed to be united on this subject. They wanted her to be informed even if it was bad news. I think this was more for respect for another woman's problems.
If Karent went down deep inside herself, I think she has always suspected Rodolpho (sp?) of fooling around......but she borders just a little bit on being desperate....wants a good marriage, and babies and fell for this jerk.
He has no intention of marrying her and giving up his freedom and his (most likely) many women....
I feel the same way about Roman and Joanna....if they haven't married after 5 years of an engagement, I doubt they ever will.....although in this case, I think neither of them can commit....and I also think Joanna needs a husband who knows that she will always be closer to her sister than her husband.
I don't like Karent but I feel bad for her. Hope she wakes up and dumps the cad.
