The Real Housewives Of Miami may be in our rearview mirrors, but Lea Black has not faded out of the spotlight – not by a long shot! The oft-titled “Mayor of Miami” appeared with her good friend Jeff Lewis on last season’s Flipping Out, and is already shooting scenes for this season as well (yay!). Lea also joins Jeff regularly on his SiriusXM radio show, where the two besties dish about pop culture, design, politics – you name it. Lea’s annual fundraising gala is still the talk of the town in Miami, and she’s also busy working on her skincare, jewelry and handbag lines, as well as promotion of her novel, Red Carpets & White Lies, a novel loosely based on the underbelly of Miami’s socialite scene.
Lea recently sat down with the Pink Shade With Erin Martin Podcast to dish on Housewives, Jeff, her relationship with The Queen of Versailles, Jackie Siegal – and more. Lea also does a Facebook Live show every Wednesday called Lunch With Lea which she describes as a time for her to dissect “all the trash and all the gossip – everything from pop culture to movies to music to politics to throwing people under the bus – laughing at people, laughing at people, awards shows. Whatever! We just talk, talk, talk.”
Now that Danielle Staub is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s hard to not feel nostalgic for the good old days. The first two seasons of this show were nothing short of iconic. Sure, there have been some epic seasons since then (and some lackluster ones as well), but it’s hard not to miss the original cast.
Dina Manzo lives in California now so it makes no sense for her to be on the show, but there are some rumors swirling that Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. Now the only remaining OG cast member, Teresa Giudice, is sounding off on the rumors.
So unless they make a Real Housewives of St. Louis, it really doesn’t make sense for Meghan to be a Real Housewife. Jim has shared words of support for his wife leaving the show, Andy Cohen commented on Meghan’s departure, and Vicki Gunvalson shared her thoughts as well. Guess which one of them didn’t have a nice thing to say about it?
At this point, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is shaping up to be Lisa Vanderpump vs. Lisa Rinna at the reunion. Sure, there are some other spats happening, but those are at the JV level. Lisa and Lisa have been taking jabs at each other in every single episode this season, in almost every interview they’ve done to promote the show, and in lots of their social media posts. These are varsity smack talkers.
Thankfully she had Ariana Madixon hand for support. The two of them discussed Jax’s cheating (obviously), the allegations that Tom Schwartzmade out with someone that wasn’t his wife Katie Maloney, and get ready for this: Ariana’s friendship with Kristen Doute. It is possible for every person on this show to get along (no matter what issues they have or what mean things they’ve done to each other) and it absolutely amazes me.
Last week, NeNe Leakes came for Sheree Whitfield during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Sheree made some comments about NeNe and Gregg Leakeshaving mug shots and NeNe upped the ante with her own mug shot tea. Did something happen later on the season that the viewers are not aware of? It seems like the two of them have been getting along pretty well – up until now, anyway.
Sheree stopped by the Bravo clubhouse to talk shit about NeNe discuss the season with Andy Cohen.
