The Real Housewives of Miami’s star often considered the cast’s wealthiest member is in a financial bind, if you believe a lawsuit filed by a bank in Miami-Dade County.
Popular cosmetic dentist Karent Sierra, 38, who runs a fancy practice in Coral Gables in addition to her role on the Bravo show, is fighting tooth and nail against not just one but two foreclosures.
Public records shows the Florida Community Bank filed against her and is trying to gain ownership of her two Miami homes with a total assessed value of $870,000.
The pretty brunette was brought on the show’s second season last year after a near complete revamping of the Season One lineup.
She was brought on to play the rich, independent businesswoman who doesn’t need a man around. Published reports claim she’s worth about $5 million.
Thing is, she may not be as comfortable as believed: The bank is trying to foreclose on a $660,000-loan on homes on SW 50th Street, in the Sierra subdivision, and SW 112th Avenue, in the Westwood Lake section.
Sierra’s lawyer didn’t return calls for comment and the reality TV star couldn’t be reached at her dentistry office because of a “family emergency.”
