So, the Real Housewives of Miami are back, and this season they have apparently been informed that they are actually part of the housewives franchise and not some random reality show that is formatted around cooking parties. Baby steps.
While four new women join the fray, the "veterans" are out numbered…unless you count Mama Elsa twice, and, let's face it, she is so awesome she deserves the extra credit. Her daughter, Marysol Patton, appears to maintain her status as the voice of reason, although sadly she's missing one hot, foreign, much younger husband. What a difference a year makes! However, regardless of what is going on in Marysol's personal life, she still seems to have a stable head on her shoulders. It's a wonder she was even chosen by Bravo given her propensity to avoid drama. Who am I kidding? She totally got this gig because Andy Cohen wanted Elsa. End of story.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to give us an hourly play-by-play of their lives. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

Who in the Housewives franchise doesn't want to be the next Bethenny Frankel? I beg of you to find one woman schilling flavored box wine or t-shirts that doesn't consider the "end in sight' to be something Bethenny related. I'm just shocked that the newest member of the club who wants to one-up Bethenny is the original Housewife jump-off into legitimate business deals…that's right. I'm referring to NeNe Leakes.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mate who has become more famous for her sit-com stints than her tacky one-liners on RHOA wants her own talk show. I guess it was only a matter of time, but gracious, Neenster! You have actually achieved more success commercially than all of your counterparts combined. Why are you now setting your sights on daytime television?
It will probably come to no surprise to you, dear readers, in light of the success of Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding and the addition of the recent bouncing baby boy that joins last year's bouncing baby K.J. and two teen half sisters, Kim is going to be cutting back on RHOA.
Original Apprentice villain Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth has suffered yet another loss. Her fiancé, Academy Award nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan suffered a heart attack and passed away yesterday morning.
The actor, 54, who was engaged to Omarosa, apparently never recovered from a myocardial infarction he suffered on July 13th, according to TMZ.
Omarosa discovered Michael in cardiac arrest in his Los Angeles home and performed CPR which kept the actor alive until paramedics arrived on the scene. He was convalescing in a hospital and unfortunately passed away there.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is touted for being one of the first (and really the only) cross-over reality TV stars – i.e. making the shift from reality TV to scripted television in a regular role. NeNe had a season-long guest role on the hit show Glee and starting this fall she will be a regular castmember on Ryan Murphy‘s new sitcom The New Normal.
According to the WSJ: “The divide between reality shows and more-traditional scripted series has long been the Berlin Wall of the TV landscape. Talent competitions like ‘American Idol’ have launched successful entertainers, and so-called docusoaps like ‘Real Housewives’ have created their own genus of celebrity. But stars who find fame under their own names have trouble getting work as fictional characters.”
