Real Housewives of Miami

NYC Housewives’ Ramona Singer is once again telling it like it is, and this time around she’s unleashing her ramotional views on the Real Housewives of Miami.

In an interview with the Miami Herald, the NYC Housewife shares her opinion on RHMIA’s Elsa Patton and Lea Black. According to Ramona, Lea is badly in need of a makeover.

“I thought she looked like she was going to a costume party,” Ramona stated about the House of Gaga reject attire Lea wore to Adriana‘s gallery opening. “She looked a little ridiculous.” Oh but Ramona had more to say. “Someone’s giving her bad fashion tips. I think she needs a makeover,” added Ramona about Lea’s crimes against fashion. “It just looks like she’s stuck in a bad era.” Ouch!

And what does Ramona think of the glamorous Elsa? “I freaked out. I didn’t know if she was a man or a woman at first,” said Ramona upon facing Elsa for the first time on television. “I didn’t know if she was like a drag queen, I swear.” Telling it like it is indeed.

In other MIA news, the Miami Herald reported last week that three of the housewives – Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton and Lea Black — share a six degrees of separation with Willy Falcon and Sal Magluta, dubbed “The Boys” during the real Miami Vice era. Both currently seat in prison as Falcon pleaded guilty to money laundering and got 20 years in prison, while Magluta was convicted in 2002, sentenced to 205 years and ordered to pay a fine of $63 million for laundering cocaine profits to defense attorneys, bribed jurors and Colombian hit men.

Alexia, 43, then Alexia Figueredo married a Magluta associate Pedro L. Rosello in 1992, the same year their son Pedro aka Peter was born in Hialeah. Rosello, who cooperated as a government witness, was ultimately convicted of cocaine trafficking, and served some time in prison. Alexia and Rosello were divorced by the end of 1995.

Meanwhile, Marysol, 44, was the girlfriend of a convicted, big-time cocaine distributor who also was a cooperating witness in the federal drug case.

As for the role of Lea, 56, she is married to famed attorney Roy Black, who was paid millions to represent Magluta. When Roy was asked about the connections between the Bravo show and the Willy-and-Sal case, he simply stated, “It’s so Miami, that’s for sure.”

The third episode of the Real Housewives of Miami aired last night, and in case you’re wondering, it wasn’t much better than the two previous episodes. However, if there’s one thing to be learned from last night, it is that Elsa Patton is the real star of the show. Psychic witch readings? Drinking? Glamorous bedspread attires? Yes, I’ll take another shot of Elsa please!

The episode begins with Lea, Lea’s #1 Fan, and Marysol going over the successful charity gala Lea put together. So what are the ladies dishing about? If you guessed discussing how successful the event was and how it helped some poor kids from going to jail, you guessed wrong. Cristy is the topic of conversation as Lea can’t understand the audacity of anyone crashing one of her events. She runs Miami darn it! Lea decides the best way to deal with the issue is to make Cristy pay… Literally… As in via an invoice… That Lea will mail to her. A bit surprising considering Cristy has stated in her Bravo blogs that she and Lea were friends before the whole gala fiasco. But that doesn’t matter now as Lea’s verdict is final.

The Real Housewives of Miami return tonight with an all new episode at 10/9c.

On the 3rd episode this season titled “Optical Delusion,” following her successful charity gala, Lea decides it’s time for Cristy to pay up. Meanwhile, art-house owner Adriana hosts a gallery opening, but the event begins to fizzle when the artist doesn’t complete his paintings in time and her backup entertainment fails to impress.

Watch What Happens Live – The guest tonight will be none other than Bethenny Frankel!

Ratings – The ratings are out for last week’s episode (the second episode of the season) and it’s more bad news for Bravo. The show’s ratings declined 14% with only 1.03 million viewers tuning in, down from the 1.21 viewers who watched the debut episode. Those ratings are almost unheard of when it comes to the Bravo housewives’ franchise in recent years. Definitely not looking good for the Miami franchise.

And finally, housewife Adriana De Moura-Sidi opens up about her first marriage in a new interview with Star magazine.

While Adriana has discussed her ex-husband’s infidelity on the show, she tells Star she experienced other horrors in her marriage. Her divorce court documents reveal both physical violence and rape at the hands of her ex-husband.

“I consider myself a survivor,” Adriana tells Star in an exclusive interview. According to the court papers, in December 2006 Adriana told Roberto Sidi she wanted to end their relationship. This led to an argument and ultimately violence at the couple’s condo. Adriana reveals in the court papers that Roberto choked her, threatened her life and even raped her — all while their young son slept in the next room.

You can read more of Adriana’s interview in the current issue of Star magazine. A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below -

In not so surprising news, Real Housewives of Miami star Alexia Echevarria is now in hot water over the comments she made on a recent episode of the show.

If you recall, the self proclaimed Cuban Barbie managed to diss the entire city of Hialeah – population 250,000 – when she referred to them as a “lower” class of people who purchase her Venue magazine as a means to live vicariously through the socialites portrayed in her mag, which caters to Hispanics.

The Miami Herald reports the folks of Hialeah are none too pleased with Alexia’s comments, especially considering the fact that her husband Herman Echevarria, is a former Hialeah City Council president and former chairman of the Hialeah Chamber of Commerce and Industries.

Longtime resident, sixth-grade science teacher and former political hopeful Phil Secada, 56, told the Herald that Alexia’s comment was uncalled for. “We got good people,” Secada said. “I can’t think of a better place to live than Hialeah. I have been to all 50 states except three. I love Hialeah.”

Society writer and former Herald columnist Daisy Olivera called Alexia’s comment a classic “case of ‘open mouth, insert Louboutin.’” Nobody “with any semblance of class or humility call anyone else ‘lower persons,’ especially not your own, hard-working people,” wrote Olivera blasting Alexia. Ouch.

Alexia has since apologized for her comments, stating: “I admire and respect the people of Hialeah; in fact my husband is a product of Hialeah.”

In other MIA news, Elsa Patton, darling mother to Miami housewife Marysol Patton, continues to be a hot topic, mainly for her appearance. In fact, our site got a ton of searches for Elsa this week, with most having to do with Elsa’s face, and many wanting to know what she had done, or what she used to look like.

Well good news, as we now have a before photo of Elsa, and she was actually not too shabby looking. That before photo is below -

Not so great ratings and negative reviews in tow, the show must go on, and it did last night as Bravo aired the second episode of the Real Housewives of Miami.

While episode 2 didn’t seem to help matters that much, a single phone call via Lea Black on Watch What Happens Live last night did seem to bring some glimmer of hope. Perhaps this season won’t be all that bad after all. More on this later.

The episode begins with Adriana having a convo with fiance Frederic as the two have a surprisingly not awkward conversation about Adriana and her love for guys. The topic then turns to the catwalk drama involving the other ladies. Adriana gets it right when she refers to Larsa and Cristy as high school “mean girls” in her interview, but gets it wrong when she states she did not make a fool of herself on the catwalk.

The Real Housewives of Miami

An all new episode of the Real Housewives of Miami will air tonight on Bravo.

On the 2nd episode of the season titled, “Black Ball’d” Lea and her husband host an annual fund-raising gala featuring A-list guests and celebrities. The evening appears to be a shining success, yet tension rises when Cristy arrives with two guests lacking an RSVP.

The new episode airs at 10/9c.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight are Miami housewives Marysol Patton and Cristy Rice.

In other MIA news, Larsa Pippen and hubby Scottie Pippen have put their Miami mansion up for sale for a mere $16 million! The 13,500 sq ft home has 6 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The annual taxes alone? Over 85k.

Many however feel the Pippens’ home is grossly overpriced. For one, they only paid $1.34 mil for the home back in the year 2000, $14 million less than what they are asking for today. Plus a number of real estate experts estimate the home is worth no more than $5 million at best. The home was in fact assessed and valued at $4.8 mil back in 2009.

Perhaps the Pippens are trying to use their celebrity to their advantage or they just feel their home is worth that much, it will be interesting to see if it sells for that price. A few photos of the home exterior are below as well as a preview clip of tonight’s episode.

Has the Bravo network finally bitten off more than it can chew?

That answer might be yes based on the ratings for the newest housewives franchise – the Real Housewives of Miami.

According to a ratings report, the Tuesday night premiere episode of the show had the lowest Bravo housewives debut in recent years, bringing in a mere 1.21 million viewers.

Just how low is this? Let’s just say even the “boring” Real Housewives of DC had a higher debut with over 1.6 million viewers just less than a year ago. Also in comparison, the Real Housewives of New Jersey had better ratings for it’s 2009 debut, bringing in over 1.7 million viewers.

So is it time for Bravo to start panicking? Maybe, maybe not. Bravo did air a sneak peek of the premiere episode on Sunday night so perhaps the viewers who tuned in on Sunday failed to show up on Tuesday. But then again, it might just have been the bad word of mouth. As we previously reported, the show has been panned with negative reviews from both viewers and critics.

In general, premiere episodes tend to be low in ratings as some viewers wait for the drama to build up. Example – the October 2010 premiere of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought in 1.5 million viewers, but the viewership steadily grew as the show went on to average well over 2 million viewers for its first season.

And oh yeah, above is a photo of Marysol Patton and her 76-year-old mother Elsa Patton. The photo was taken this week during the RHMIA premiere party.

In other news, the ‘Real Housewives of Late Night‘ made their second season return last night on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show. The highlarious skits will be airing every other Thursday on the talk show. And just in case you’re wondering, Denise seems to be a dead ringer for Jill Zarin, while Lydia channels Caroline Manzo. Perhaps Yvonne is Nene Leakes?

Watch the video below to find out what Renee, Dale, Denise, Lydia, and Yvonne been up to!

TELL US – SHOULD BRAVO BE WORRIED ABOUT THE LOW PREMIERE RATINGS & BAD REVIEWS? THOUGHTS ON THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF LATE NIGHT SKIT?

Weeks after bumping the Real Housewives of NYC, Bravo premiered the Real Housewives of Miami last night and so far, the reviews today have pretty much panned the show, but more on this later. The Miami franchise definitely felt like a mix between Basketball Wives and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Is this a good mix you ask? Well, let’s find out!

On to the recap – the premiere episodes of the Bravo housewives are usually a bit ADD and all over the place but something about the RHMIA just seemed slightly more all over the place.

In the first scene, we are introduced to snob #1 Lea, a “people collector” who finds joy in collecting crazy people, as I breathe a sigh of relief that Lea wasn’t around pre-Lincoln days. Some of the people collected by Lea include rapper Rick Ross and former NBA hot mess star Dennis Rodman. In this scene, we also get a glimpse of drag queen Elaine Lancaster in the background. Elaine was rumored to have been a cast member back when the show was still titled ‘Miami Social Club.’ It will be interesting to see if Elaine is in a lot of scenes through out the season. So okay, not a big fan of Lea but what the hey! There are 5 more ladies left so let’s go!
