Real Housewives Of Miami Star Mama Elsa Dies At 84 After “Long Illness”

 

The Real Housewives of Miami franchise never caught fire. So the show only lasted three seasons before Bravo gave it the ax.  The breakout star of all three was arguably Elsa Patton aka Mama Elsa. Mama Elsa, 84, was the psychic, delightfully wacky and surgically manhandled mother of cast member Marysol Patton.

Mama Elsa was so compelling on Real Housewives of Miami that it was rumored that she was getting her own spin-off. There was hope because Andy Cohen made it no secret how much he loved her. It never came to pass and now it never will.  

Lea Black Talks Real Housewives, Friendship With Jeff Lewis, Skincare, And More On Pink Shade Podcast

The Real Housewives Of Miami may be in our rearview mirrors, but Lea Black has not faded out of the spotlight – not by a long shot! The oft-titled “Mayor of Miami” appeared with her good friend Jeff Lewis on last season’s Flipping Out, and is already shooting scenes for this season as well (yay!). Lea also joins Jeff regularly on his SiriusXM radio show, where the two besties dish about pop culture, design, politics – you name it. Lea’s annual fundraising gala is still the talk of the town in Miami, and she’s also busy working on her skincare, jewelry and handbag lines, as well as promotion of her novel, Red Carpets & White Lies, a novel loosely based on the underbelly of Miami’s socialite scene.

Lea recently sat down with the Pink Shade With Erin Martin Podcast to dish on Housewives, Jeff, her relationship with The Queen of Versailles, Jackie Siegal – and more. Lea also does a Facebook Live show every Wednesday called Lunch With Lea which she describes as a time for her to dissect “all the trash and all the gossip – everything from pop culture to movies to music to politics to throwing people under the bus – laughing at people, laughing at people, awards shows. Whatever! We just talk, talk, talk.”

Angelina Jolie had better watch her back!  It seems that Brad Pitt may have eyes for another lady…of course, he'll have to fight Andy Cohen for her.  For those of you who saw Brad's new World War Z this weekend, you may know who I'm talking about!

It's like a New Year's miracle!  Could it be that Real Housewives of Miami's Elsa Patton is getting her own show?  Andy Cohen would certainly be all for it.  Just think of the craziness draped in fur and subtitles.  It's already my new favorite show!

RHOM fans know that despite some unfortunate plastic surgery, Mama Elsa tells it like it is.  When she's not threatening drag queens, dancing in caftans, or having psychic visions, she's doling out some pretty down-to-earth advice.  She's the Big Ang of Bravo.

It's that time of year again. You know what I mean… The time of year when the annual Dancing With The Stars casting speculation resumes in earnest.

We thought we'd help ABC out a bit by dropping some hints about which reality stars we absolutely need (ok want, but semantics, right?) to see strap on a shiny sequined leotard, drop the magical ten pounds, and prance their way into public humiliation while Derek Hough gyrates them into a sequined disco ball statue.

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.”
