'Family Karma's Anisha On What It's Like Filming & The Anxiety Of Watching The Show

If you're not watching Family Karma on Bravo, you really need to make time for it. It comes on right after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Wednesday nights and it will help you unclench your jaw after watching all the Erika Girardi stuff go down. Because what Erika lacks in authenticity and vulnerability, Family Karma's Anisha Ramakrishna makes up for it, times one million.

The 36-year-old is part of the ensemble Family Karma cast, which is comprised of family and close friends within the Indian-American community in Miami, Florida. Season 1 introduced us to Anisha's lovable blend of honesty and shadiness and Season 2, which premiered June 2, gives us even more.

In part one of my conversation with Anisha, we discuss her relationship with the producers, what advice Bravo gave her before filming, and the highs and lows of being on a reality show.

This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Lindsay for The Dipp: What was it like watching Season 1, which aired during quarantine?

Anisha Ramakrishna: My dad was upstairs, my mom was in her room, and I was downstairs with my neighbor friend. Like, everyone was watching it alone because the anxiety of what's going to happen is nerve-wracking. Especially for your Season 1, you know?

I will tell you, a lot of us were scared because of our culture. We were just so nervous ... Being Indian, we're all about the family and the community, so it was nerve-wracking because there's never been an all-Indian cast in American television history. So shout out to Bravo for making that happen!
