Joanna's BFF Tracy Szymanski brought her to Israel for a bit of spiritual and physical rejuvenation, relaxation, and fun, and Joanna took it from there to reaffirm her religious beliefs in one of the holiest places on Earth!
Joanna spoke to us about her decision for the baptism — her first time as an adult, after being baptized as a baby — as well as what it meant for her to have the ceremony done in Israel on the historic Jordan River. She revealed:
"I did it because as a baby your parents decide if you will be baptized. As an adult I wanted to confirm my beliefs and to show thanks for my life and everything I have accomplished. I wanted to do it as a cleansing, especially when I am in a very spiritual, special holy place like Israel. It was very powerful. It is a celebration of my life and being thankful and accepting it as an adult and vowing to be a better person."
Joanna is far from the only star who's been to Israel recently — everybody from Chris Brown, to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, to Natalie Portman and Jay Leno have all visited the country!
And Joanna's also not the only recent Housewives star to undergo a religious cleansing! RHOC's Tamra Judge was baptized following the birth of her granddaughter.
