Elsa Patton

Real Housewives of Miami

Bienvenida a Miami and can I just say, FINALLY! It looks like Bravo is in talks to breathe new life into Real Housewives of Miami. RHOM used to be a thing but if you blinked, you missed it. The show was born in 2011 and introduced us to a few names we still hear about now and then. Most recently, Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps caught some flack about hanging out with Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria. Miami alum Lisa Hochstein was in the news for racking up some fines after partying during the pandemic

Miami came to an end in 2013 for reasons we really don’t know. Andy Cohen implied it was due to the death of Marysol’s mother, Mama Elsa. He also said ratings had dropped off towards the end of the third season, so it was given the axe. Thankfully, reboots have become a thing and Miami could get another shot. Word on the street is Bravo is bringing back the franchise and returning us to palm trees and blue seas. But, will this be like re-gifting or getting a whole new present?

Luann de Lesseps Real Housewives Of New York

What’s the first thing you do if your job shuts down in the middle of a medical health crisis that is impacting the whole ass globe? If you answered with; fly to another state that has a ridiculously high Covid case confirmation rate and party on the local social scene without the benefit of wearing a mask, your name might be Luann de Lesseps. Lu must be taking advantage of the break in filming from Real Housewives of New York, because she’s been spotted in Miami at a birthday soiree.

Here’s the irony, RHONY halted production because a cast member tested positive for the Rona. But that’s not even the best part, this is the second time cameras have been pulled during the pandemic. The first time it was a person on the crew who tested positive. The way things are going, this is going to be a choppy season at best. And it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibilities for a 3rd stop in production. After Luann’s recent trip to Miami, she might bring home more than sand in her shoes.

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.”

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.
