While most will be toasting the New Year with a glass of champagne in hand, Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa has thought about ditching the bubbly — for healthier libations — in 2013.
“Drinking a little less,” is one plan Krupa, 33, told Celebuzz about her New Year’s goal at the Cell Phones for Soldiers Voli Light Vodka Party on Dec. 6 at the SkyBar in Hollywood.
And given the fact that she’s on one of TV’s cattiest reality shows, her next resolution may be harder to live up to, but she wants to give it a try.
“Not getting in as many verbal fights as I have in the last few months,” Krupa added.
No doubt the Bravo star is referring to her on camera catfight with fellow castmate Adriana de Moura at co-star Lisa Hochstein’s lingerie charity event where the two became sworn enemies.
Despite the drama on screen, off screen Krupa’s personal life is definitely looking up.
Celebuzz was the first to reveal that the former Dancing with the Stars contestant got back together with her fiancee, Miami nightclub owner Romain Zago, after briefly calling off their five and a half year engagement on Nov. 20.
According to Krupa, her mother was the real champion behind the reconciliation.
“I was miserable for those three weeks,” she said. “I mean, we’ve always loved each other it was just certain things that happened throughout the season of Housewives that I just needed some time to myself. My mom pretty much got us back together. She’s like, ‘Guys, stop with all this nonsense. You’re either going to be together or not be together.’”

“Real Housewives” star Dorinda Medley has been taking a break from longtime love and dry-cleaning connoisseur John Mahdessian, Page Six has learned. Medley has been spotted all over town sans her man, sparking buzz they split.
“They’re starting to live separate lives,” a source told us. “He’ll attend the opening of an envelope, and she goes out for work, but she’s really low-key. He’s all about being the guy on the town since she’s been on the show.”
Another source told us, “It’s complicated. They’ve been together seven years and just hit a rough patch. They’re working through some things.”
Medley was recently spotted at the James Beard House-hosted dinner from Plant Miami and Rudd Estate wines.
A Bravo rep did not comment on Medley.

With a two-week on-air break, you’d think that the ladies of “Real Housewives of Potomac” (which returns to Bravo on March 6) would have a brief rumor mill breather. Not likely.
Turns out there’s good news and bad news for the housewives crew. Despite the surprising absence of drama (or, at the very least, believable conflict), the show is most likely on its way to a second season, according to sources close to the production. Take that, D.C.! The Potomac edition premiered with the highest ratings in the franchise, with 2.54 million viewers overall.
Here’s the bad: Bravo is looking to add some fresh faces to the mix of area women starring on the show. Calls have been made and names have been thrown into the ring. Whether these potential new stars will replace or simply augment the current cast — Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, Charrisse Jackson Jordan, Katie Rost, Robyn Dixon and Gizelle Bryant — remains to be seen. Bravo usually likes to keep the casting under a tight lid.
But the network has a track record of bumping “boring” housewives. Remember DeShawn Snow of Atlanta’s first season? Or Kimberly Bryant of Orange County? Or half the cast of the first season of Miami?
With just five episodes under its belt, “Potomac” already has clear breakouts. Gizelle Bryant is a fan favorite — think Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes without all the yelling (so far). The show’s youngest member, wild wife Darby (and her much older Aussie husband Michael), is another. And polite society police chief Huger is nothing if not entertaining.
