Last season Real Housewives of Miami was widely panned for being completely boring. Bravo apparently heeded the advice of viewers and decided to spice things up to jalapeno levels! After firing two castmembers and reportedly signing on Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, and Lisa Hochstein – things are getting crazy down in Miami. So much so that the CBS Miami reports there was quite the altercation at a recent fashion show!

At the show, which was hosted by shoe designer Lisa Pliner at the home she shares with her husband Donald J. Pliner, the ladies of Bravo behaved every way but civilized – per their contract stipulation! Apparently, things got heated with drag queen/emcee Elaine Lancaster started harassing Marysol Patton for her overly puffed face over an issue they had years ago and the two got into it! Marysol couldn’t take the heat and became very emotional, causing a scene and threatening to quit the show, according to the Miami Herald Blog!

A hysterical Marysol was overheard freaking out to Bravo producers and threatening to walk out, before a producer reminded her about that iron-clad contract she signed! When party-goers noticed the drama, Marysol pulled it together and insisted all was fine, but she needed to get back to work.

Speaking out about the event, Elaine Lancaster claims it was no big deal; chalking it up to “tension” and “dealing with a bunch of catty women and egos.” Laughing it off, she added, “In fact, I try to emulate the best that women have, unfortunately, that’s a bad quality that some women have.”

Lea Black told reporters she had no idea what the ruckus was about, but it didn’t spoil anyone’s good time. “I think there was a little conflict among a few girls that maybe they could have handled it at another time, at another place but it happened here.” And indeed, it wouldn’t be a Housewives franchise without some inappropriately timed and placed drama, would it?

Moving on, newbie Housewife Joanna has decided she is something of an anti-fur advocate. First, she led a protest against the Kardashian owned DASH boutique, which appeared to be Lisa and a couple of her girlfriends staging an event for the paparazzi before grabbing some lunch. Whatever the case, it seems she nabbed PETA’s attention and now the animal-rights group has unleashed her as their newest spokesmodel.

The new campaign features a topless Joanna sporting a halo, angel wings, and a cross. It’s classy, of that I can assure you! The advertisement is supposed to help you remember to rescue animals as she is also standing (floating?) on the heads of several small dogs with the caption: “Always adopt, never buy.”  In another photo she is snuggling a yorkie to her naked chest.

“We’re spreading the word that breeding your dog or cat isn’t the way to go,” Joanna explained to the New Times. “Somebody needs to put their foot down and stop this breeding and these hideous puppy mills. Dogs’re [sic] in these little tiny cages for life. It makes me so angry, and if our government doesn’t do anything about it, I have to.”

Well, ok – I’m not one to take away from a good cause. Oh, what am I saying – I’ll snark on anything. The photos of Joanna saving animals is below. Too bad no one told her she should save herself the embarrassment of participating in a reality show!

THOUGHTS ON THE RHOM DRAMA? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE SECOND SEASON? THOUGHTS ON JOANNA’S PETA CAMPAIGN?

UPDATE – Bravo just confirmed the news via a press release. The press release also stated season one housewives Marysol Patton, Lea Black, and Audriana de Moura will be returning! Meaning Alexia Echevarria, alongside Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice, will not be on the new season.

No word yet on why Alexia is out – perhaps it has to do with her 13-year-old son Frankie who suffered a very serious car accident last summer that left him hospitalized for months. Alexia had previously stated she did not wish to have Frankie’s recovery and rehabilitation filmed for the series. Bravo also confirmed production on the new season is set to begin this month.

The original story is below -

According to a new report, the Bravo network is gearing up to officially announce that the Real Housewives of Miami has been renewed for a second season!

This news is not much of a surprise as cast member Adriana De Moura pretty much confirmed it last November. The Hollywood Reporter states that Bravo is also cleaning house behind the scenes, as the network has called in the big guns–production company Purveyors of Pop–to produce the new season.

Purveyors of Pop is the same company behind Bravo’s more successful Atlanta, New Jersey, and New York Housewives franchises, as well as Bethenny Ever After.

THR also confirms what Adriana stated, which is that not all of the season 1 cast members will be coming back. While THR doesn’t confirm who will be getting the boot, Adriana has revealed both Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will not be returning.

Indeed, a new report by the Miami Herald today states Bravo has already cast replacements for Larsa and Cristy! And one of those new housewives is reportedly model Joanna Krupa!

That name should ring a bell as Joanna, 32, appeared on the 9th season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. As for Joanna’s link to Miami, she is engaged to Mynt nightclub owner Romain Zago.

The second addition to the cast is said to be Lisa Hochstein, wife of plastic surgeon Dr. Lenny Hochstein of the short-lived Bravo version of Nip/Tuck called Miami Slice. Photos of Joanna and Lisa are below!

Bravo is said to be currently doing a test shoot with the new cast members. “They’re filming with these new women to see if it makes it more watchable, which compared to the first season, shouldn’t be that hard,” reveals a TV insider. Ouch! As for Bravo, they are not confirming the news simply stating: “No decision has been made on The Real Housewives of Miami.”

The Herald also adds that Mama Elsa Patton played a big role in Bravo’s decision to give Miami another chance. The first season of the series was not only lackluster, but it also tanked in ratings, too. Just how bad did the Miami housewives do, you ask? Let’s just say the now canceled Real Housewives of DC had better ratings!

I do wonder if this franchise can be salvaged – perhaps Bravo might want to consider adding more than two new housewives. Or better yet, I’m still waiting on my dream franchise aka The Real Housewives of Dallas… Sigh.

Like it or not, there will be a second season of the Real Housewives of Miami!

Even better, Adriana De Moura confirms season two is set to begin filming in a few weeks, but not without a big shake up!

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Adriana reveals season 1 cast members Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will NOT be returning. “Larsa and Cristy are out,’’ states Adriana. “Producers didn’t want this to go in a Basketball Wives direction. We’ll portray Miami the way it should be portrayed.’’ Ouch!

So who will be the new housewives taking their places? Adriana has no idea though she assures us almost everyone in Miami is vying to be on the show.

“It’s so funny, when we aired, everyone said, ‘Oh that show is so bad. I don’t even watch it,’ she says. “But when they were casting, all of a sudden — I’m not going to mention names — but now half of Miami wants to be in it.’’

MARYSOL PATTON EXPLAINS WHY THE FIRST SEASON FLOPPED!

Adriana once again defends her show and the lackluster first season. She explains the first season didn’t work because Bravo never meant for the series to become a Real Housewives franchise. Indeed, the show was originally intended to be a Miami Social knockoff, but became a Housewives franchise during the editing process.

“That’s why we had shorter episodes and all that foolishness,’’ says the optimistic Adriana. “Now we’re hoping to beat Beverly Hills!’’ Umm let’s not get ahead of ourselves now Adrie!

With filming set to begin in about six weeks, Adriana states she alongside Marysol Patton (Yay for Mama Elsa!), Alexia Echevarria and Lea Black will be returning.

Larsa’s departure is not much of a surprise as she reportedly moved back to Chicago with her husband Scottie Pippen and their family earlier this year.

TELL US: SURPRISED BRAVO’S BRINGING THE SHOW BACK? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE CAST SHAKE UP? WILL YOU WATCH SEASON 2?

Real Housewives of Miami fans can breathe a sigh of relief today as it does not appear the show will suffer the same fate as the DC Housewives.

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.”

It all ends tonight… perhaps for good?

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 Echeverria and 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.

It seems Bravo is pulling out all the stops when it comes to the Real Housewives of Miami reunion.

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 Giudice on 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 -
