Apart from the original housewives Alexia Echevarria, Lisa Hochstein, and Larsa Pippen, the show will also see three new housewives appearing on the highly-anticipated reality TV show.
One of the new members who will be trying to woo the audience this time around is Guerdy Abrair. Fans are really excited to meet Miami newbies and want to know what kind of new things they can bring to the show. So, let’s dig a little deeper and get to know more about Guerdy.
Who is Guerdy Abrair?
Born in Haiti, Guerdy Abrair and her family relocated to Paris, France, in order to get better opportunities. Her family tried their luck in France for 8 years and when Guerdy was just nine years old, they moved to the United States so that they could have a better life. At first, she faced a lot of difficulties in her new home country and the language seemed to be an issue. But she didn’t back down and continued to move forward.
In the initial part of her life, she always wanted to be a news anchor. However, she soon realized that she was really efficient in hosting parties and wanted to make a career out of it. A few years later she was introduced to event planning and that’s when she realized that event planning is something that she wants to do. She was good at multi-tasking and executed projects in a wonderful manner. It was then she realized that she wanted to be a professional event planner.
Guerdy was exposed to a lot of amazing things in her profession and traveled the world, which expanded her palette in fashion and design.
Guerdy is someone who can “sell water to well”
After being a successful event planner at the local level, her first professional job was as a catering manager in a hotel. Guerdy was so wonderful at her job that they started calling her someone who could “sell water to a well”. She played a significant role in tripling the projected catering budget. After a successful stint, she was promoted to a senior position in the events department at Fisher Island. With all the experiences she had, she did wonders for the island and turned the events department into one of the most revenue-generating sources on the island.
Soon she realized that she wanted to do something of her own and got once in a lifetime opportunity to open her own company. Her company turned out to be immensely successful and she took her company, Ocean Flowers and Events, to Florida as she received most of the orders from Florida.
Her company, Guerdy Design, has even been called one of the top planners by Martha Stewart Weddings, The New York Times, People Magazine, Harpers Bazaar, and Brides magazines. She was also featured in Vogue once after they covered one of the weddings she planned.
The reality TV star has a good following on social media as well and has more than 41,000 followers on Instagram. She frequently posts her pictures on the image-sharing platform and also shares her work. She is currently based out of Miami and New York but travels often for destination events. When asked, “where are you based?” she usually replies “out of an airplane!”
You can see her wooing the audiences in the fourth season of the ‘Real Housewives of Miami’. The newest season will be premiering exclusively on Peacock on Thursday, December 16.
