Marysol Patton

In a new interview, Real Housewives of Miami star Marysol Patton displays some refreshing honesty when she candidly discusses the first season of the Bravo show and why it failed to impress some fans.

For starters, the show seemed to have all the makings of its successful Bravo counterparts, such as the catfights, dramatic dinners from hell, and even a party crashing incident, but for some reason, it just didn’t gel well together. The RHOM brought in pretty low ratings for Bravo, even lower than the Real Housewives of DC which was recently canceled.

“The ratings? I knew why that was happening,” said Marysol to the Daily Beast. “They literally told us 10 days before it aired that the show was going to air.” The Daily Beast however notes it was actually 19 days; with Bravo making the officially announcement to postpone the NYC Housewives in favor of the RHOM on Feb. 3. The Miami Housewives made its debut on Feb. 22.

“We got one week’s promotion,” Marysol continued. “All the other shows get two months of, ‘It’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming!’ What kind of following can you get when there’s only one of advertising?”

And Marysol, who owns a PR company, wasn’t happy with the very short time they had to promote the show. “When we were told, all of a sudden everyone in [my] office froze. We looked at each in awe, like, What are we going to do? We looked at each other like, Why do we all feel so paralyzed? I didn’t know what to do. We had to let Bravo do their thing, I couldn’t go gang-busters doing my own PR. So I had to sit back and watch… We were all frozen and frustrated.”

Marysol also points out what has been widely reported which is that the show was not intended to be a housewives series. In fact, she reveals when she was first approached by Bravo to do the show, it was sold to her as an untitled project “about women in business and philanthropy.”

“It wasn’t supposed to be a Housewives show,” said Marysol adding that Bravo considered different titles such as Miami Caliente and Miami Chicas. “So they did a lot of work scenes, which got cut out.” And when the show finally aired, her storyline “was turned into romance and my mom.”

Marysol reveals she and her costars were told their show would become a Real Housewives series after filming wrapped. She adds that she wasn’t happy most of her work scenes were cut out, echoing the same sentiments of her costar Cristy Rice who stated she was disappointed Bravo failed to make mention of her boutique, which she has had for 12 years.

Despite everything, Marysol makes it clear she enjoyed the Housewives experience and most importantly her mom, Elsa Patton, who has become a fan favorite and now has her own twitter account, loves the attention that comes with the show.

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.

The first season of the Real Housewives of Miami comes to an end tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

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 Pippen is 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!

A week before the finale, a new episode of the Real Housewives of Miami airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the fifth episode this season titled “Beach Slap,” Larsa welcomes the ladies to an Italian-culinary tutorial at her private restaurant, but what could have been tasty turns testy because of swirling rumors and accusations. Elsewhere, Marysol returns from her elopement in Aspen; and Cristy and Alexia participate in a fashion show, but an ill-fated turn of events blindsides one of them.

Watch What Happens Live - The guests tonight will include the one and only Elsa Patton and her daughter Marysol Patton! Andy Cohen revealed on Sunday’s episode that Elsa was terrified of flying so he had to send two of his staffers to Miami to safely drive her back to NYC. Part of the journey was taped and will be shown tonight.

Elsa also tweeted (yes she is on twitter) some of her demands to Andy yesterday. “@bravoandy these are my demands. I want soft yellow roses, I’m a lady. That is all. A woman never gives more than she takes,” tweeted Elsa. Below is a pic of Mama Elsa and Marysol during their journey.

Meanwhile, a new poll is up on who is your least disliked favorite Miami housewife, and you can cast your vote below. Good luck.

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 -

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.
