Lea Black


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 -

The fourth episode of the Real Housewives of Miami airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the new episode titled “Waterfront and Center,” Alexia serves up a full-blown Cuban dinner for the ladies, but vegetarian Lea gripes about the meat on the menu. Meanwhile, Adriana, still wounded from her ill-fated gallery opening, opens up about her various woes. Marysol gets a surprise proposal, and dramas from the Blacks’ past gala come back to haunt Cristy.

In other RHMIA news, it seems this first season will be a very short one as there have been reports only 6 or 7 episodes are scheduled to air.  According to the TV Guide listings, there are only 6 episodes this season, with the finale airing in two weeks.

Ratings - Some good news for Bravo as the ratings went up 30% last week from the previous week, with over 1.30 million viewers tuning in.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Kathy Griffin and Larsa Pippen.

And finally, it seems Miami housewife Lea Black is no fan of Sarah Palin’s. In  an opinion piece written on the Huffington Post, Lea advises Sarah to stick to doing reality TV rather than politics. “Save the “domestic” drama for your reality show!,” wrote Lea, also adding that she has “always been politically conscious.”

E! also caught up with Lea yesterday during which she expanded on her opinion of Palin.  “Sarah Palin is the sideshow in the circus that everyone wants to watch, but that most people don’t take seriously,” said Lea. “The Republican Party has become a circus and she’s the sideshow act that everyone likes to laugh at, not with.”

Lea then makes it clear she doesn’t think Palin would make a great president. “I think she makes for great entertainment, but I don’t think she can be taken seriously for leading a country,” she added.

A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below -

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LEA’S COMMENTS, THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE?

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.”
