According to a new report by the Miami Herald, the show will likely return for a sophomore season. However it appears the Bravo network is looking to replace some of the cast members… rightfully so if I might add.
An insider reveals that Bravo has axed the show’s original producers and casting agents and is now using its own staff. In addition to that, Bravo producers are also reported to be in town this weekend to re-interview the original cast.
“Not everyone from the original cast will be back,” says the inside source. As for Bravo, they refuse to confirm or deny the story with a rep for the network stating, “We haven’t made any announcements regarding a second season.”

The first season of the Real Housewives of Miami wraps up tonight with the airing of the first ever live reunion show for a Bravo housewives series. Yes, at 9/8c, Andy Cohen will host Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Miami Housewives Reunion. No word yet on whether or not Mama Elsa Patton will crash the party.
In other news, Lea Black hosted her annual charity gala this weekend and according to the HollywoodLife, the night went without a hitch, well other than a little tiff between Alexia Echeverriaand her husband Herman.
Sources tell the HollywoodLife that Alexia and Herman got into a fight because Herman wouldn’t stop bidding on diamonds. Apparently Alexia kept telling Herman she “didn’t need anymore diamonds” so instead the couple walked away with a weekend at Joe Francis‘ home in Mexico that cost them a mere $20,000.
The night was a success for Lea as she and her husband Roy Black ended up raising $750,000 for their charity. The source adds that things got a bit wild when rapper Pharell performed and Adriana De Moura hit the stage to dance with him.
As for Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice, they did not crash attend the party though Lea is said to have jokingly told those in attendance that she was “going to work this room like a $100,000 hooker!” Meow! A photo of all the ladies in attendance is below.
And finally, housewife Cristy, a mom of three, hit the beach yesterday in Miami sporting a sexy red crochet bikini. Those bikini photos of Cristy below as well!

Following a lackluster freshman season, one that had fans longing for the good ol days of the DC Housewives, the Real Housewives of Miami ended last night with a supersized finale!
And while the ladies attempted to go out with a bang, they just didn’t quite measure up to their other counterparts. Example –
Party crashing 101? The Real Housewives of DC did it better!
Inappropriate sexy times in front of a camera crew? The Real Housewives of OC did it better!
Pre-wedding jitters & panics? The Real Housewives of Atlanta did it better!
Drinking and making inappropriate comments? The Real Housewives of NYC did it better!
Dinner parties from hell with psychic sidekicks? The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills did it better!
Bless their little hearts, at least they tried, and for that I give them a C- for effort. The episode begins with the glamorous Elsa as she sits with daughter Marysol to view her wedding photos. Mama Elsa doesn’t disappoint with her commentary when she states Marysol looked like royalty while Philippe looked like the help. And when it comes to being a grandma, just forget it! That ship has long sailed as Elsa feels she is way past the grandma appropriate age of 35, and is now too old to chase after the little crumb snatchers. The topic then turns into the number of times Marysol’s been married. Marysol says 2, Elsa says 3 or 4, while Marysol feeld she needs more time to catch up to her mother.

Following a so-so freshman season, it seems the MIA ladies will be going out with a bang during the super-sized 1 hour and 30 minutes finale episode.
On the finale titled “Mama Knows Best,” Marysol hosts a dinner party, inviting all the ladies plus her mother, Elsa. But Elsa stirs the pot by cutting down Larsa, putting the dinner drama at a high boil. Elsewhere, Alexia promotes her son’s career as a model; and Lea crafts a dinner plan with chef Michelle Bernstein.
And while most of the housewives appear to be unhappy with their “characters” on the show, Marysol Patton, a fan favorite according to our poll, is pleased with the way the season went. “I don’t like to pick on people; I pick on myself,” said Marysol to the Miami Herald on how she managed to stay out of the drama.
When it comes to tonight’s finale, Marysol promises it will not disappoint. “Things really get defined as to who doesn’t like who. The lines are drawn in the sand. Even I have an opinion,” she said.
Cristy Rice is however voicing her disappointment with Bravo for only focusing on the gala crashing, according to her. “Unlike the other 5 girls they NEVER showed you MY business (BriBri Boutique of which i have had for over 10 years) nor any scenes with my family or my friends. SIMPLY TIX DRAMA. Not very cool but it is what it is!!!” wrote Cristy on her facebook. Photos of Cristy and her kids, who never appeared on the show, are below. According to reports, Cristy’s ex-husband Glen Rice did not allow his kids to be taped.
There are also rumors and rumblings that Larsa Pippenis very upset with her portrayal on the show, which rivaled that of Camille Grammer on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, Larsa has missed numerous key promotional events for the show including her most recent scheduled appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
When it comes to a second season, Bravo has yet to make a decision. WWHL is off the air tonight and airing next week will be the first ever live reunion show for the Miami housewives!

According to Entertainment Weekly, for the first time ever, the network will air a live reunion show for a Housewives series.
The reunion special, titled Watch What Happens: Live Miami Housewives Reunion, will air live on the East Coast on April 5 at 9 p.m. ET.
The special will still be hosted by Andy Cohen, and here’s to hoping a shoving incident a la Teresa Giudiceon last year’s NJ reunion show does doesn’t repeat itself live.
The April 5 date also means there are only two episodes left this season, meaning only 6 episodes will be aired for RHMIA season 1.
In other news, Life & Style magazine released the first photo today of Marysol Patton and beau Frenchman Philippe Pautesta-Herder on their wedding day in Aspen, Colo.
Marysol, 44, reveals this is actually her second marriage and the first for Philippe, 34. Marysol also admits she “was freaking out,” about planning her elopement in only five days. “But on our wedding day, a sense of peace came over me,” she added.
Life & Style states the wedding actually took place almost a year ago on March 25, 2010. “We rushed so we wouldn’t miss the snow,” Marysol says. “I always wanted a winter wedding!” A wedding photo of the couple 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.

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.
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.
