We're just two days away from the premiere of season 2 of The Real Housewives of Miami! The cast and other celebs kicked things off with a Season 2 VIP Launch Party held at The Forge Restaurant in Miami Beach, Florida last night.
In a few short days the second season of Real Housewives of Miami will come crashing onto our TV screens harder than waves of Hurricane Irene.
After a lackluster first season Bravo is doing everything in it's power to make sure the drama is full-force and there will be no fans left disappointed. As part of their major overhaul the network added three new Housewives to the cast. Dr. Karent Sierra, a dentist to the stars is one of those new ladies – and she assures viewers the ladies of Miami will definitely be making some waves!
First of all, Karent assures the Miami Hearald that none of the drama captured between the cast is staged – and unlike some series of Housewives they are all 100% authentic! I'm not sure if that's refreshing or downright scary. “A lot of people who watch reality TV will think that it’s fake, but there’s nothing fabricated on this show,’’ Karent promises.
We can all admit that Real Housewives of Miami was touch and go when it first aired. Granted, it wasn’t originally supposed to be part of the Housewives franchise, but it still fell flat. Regardless, the one Miami Housewife that brought fun, glamour, and a business-savvy edge to the show was model and local magazine mogul Alexia Echevarria. Not to mention, she was always drama free which is a huge plus!
The sophomore season of the once floundering series is hoping to rejuvenate when it premieres on Bravo September 13th. While there have been some housewife change-ups, the feisty Alexia will still be a fixture. Unfortunately, due to a family tragedy, she won’t be around as much as we would hope. Her youngest son Frankie Rosello was involved in a horrific car accident last August. Understandably, she has chosen to devote her time to her son’s recovery, even stepping down as the head of Venue magazine in Miami.
Teresa Giudice has done insulted reality show royalty. The woman who just can’t seem to to be on good terms with anyone recently slammed Bethenny Frankel‘s infamous Skinnygirl cocktails!
On tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa compares her Fabellini to Bethenny‘s Skinnygirl empire. ”My thing is I don’t like anything that tastes diet-y,” she explains. “For instance, Skinnygirl tastes diet-y. I don’t like that.”
Teresa seconded the claim on her Fabulicious website, writing: “I’m so so so proud of it. And it tastes delicious!!! And Fabellini is low calorie–less than 1/2 the calories of other ‘skinny’ drinks.”
With the Real Housewives of Orange County drawing to a close, there has been a lot of speculation about what is in the works for Alexis Bellino. Not always portrayed as the sharpest tool in the shed, Alexis has lost good friends and gained unusual allies this season.
Alexis was recently interviewed by WetPaint.com about how she was portrayed and whether she’s mended any of her relationships with her cast mates. Highlights from that interview follow.
