On the first season of Real Housewives of Miami there was only one person who struck the viewer’s interest: Mama ElsaMarysol Patton‘s psychic, delightfully charming, and very injected mama.

Season two of RHOM is slated to return this fall and with that so will Mama Elsa and her equally injected daughter. In a recent interview with Refinery 29, Marysol talks growing up and how the show has impacted her life. Hopefully it put her in touch with a reputable plastic surgeon! Paging Dr. Paul!

Last season Marysol, who owns her own successful PR firm The Patton Group, emerged as RHOM’s resident career girl, but Marysol shares she always wanted to be a wife and mother. “My parents told me that I wanted to be an attorney, so that’s what I assumed I wanted to be, even though I didn’t know what that meant since I was very little,” Marysol shares. “I think I always wanted to be a wife and a mother. I never thought about being a career woman when I was a little girl.”


“You know, I really want to have a family. I haven’t made the time because I’ve always worked, but that’s something I really want to do,” she adds.

“I fell on this accidentally while I was on the board of a charity as a volunteer, and the director of events left and they asked me to take it,” Marysol recalls. “I did an amazing first event to start which at was the Versace home, the first (party) since Mr. Versace had been killed, and everyone wanted to get into it so it was very easy to sell out.”

As for how Housewives has impacted her already busy career, apparently she is now working through the roof! “A lot of really great clients who haven’t worked with us before have come to the door and were very interested in working with us,” Marysol shares of the benefit of appearing on the show.

“I’d see people who’d come in and meet with me and at the end of the conversation would say, ‘By the way, I loved you on the show.’ That was the whole point, it was for the business. It wasn’t about being famous because I’m not an actress, it was all about promoting The Patton Group.”
