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?
Oh, Florida! It must be great to live in a warm climate. Palm trees, the Atlantic Ocean, thumping social scene. Not much slows down a city like Miami, including a pandemic. Real Housewives of Miami used to be a thing and word on the street is, it might be a thing again. Recently, veteran ladies, Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria have popped up in the news because a highly contagious virus will absolutely not deter having birthday parties with other Housewives who visit from out of state.
Being immune to all pestilence is a gift not many of us have, because we aren’t the damn Avengers, but if you take a gander at certain Bravolebrities you would assume they are exempt from diseases. Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps has come under fire for traveling to Miami to party without a mask, but according to her, “precautions were taken“. Now RHOM is back in the media but not for a premier date. Another star has fallen victim to being inconvenienced by Covid.
Does anyone else miss the Real Housewives of Miami? It has been six years since the show last aired. Three seasons just wasn’t enough of the Miami ladies. The show had a different flair than the other Housewife shows, with some interesting cast members, including the always irrepressible Lea Black. Fan favorite, the late, great Mama Elsa added no-nonsense wisdom in her own unique way. Out of all the past Bravo shows, I think this is the one I miss the most.
Lisa Hochstein, a former Playboy model, was a cast member for the last two seasons of RHOM. She might best be remembered for her love of expensive designer handbags. And her love for her adoring plastic surgeon husband Lenny Hochstein, frequent provider of the aforementioned handbags. Lisa opened up about her fertility struggles on the show and in 2015, she and Lenny had a son Logan via surrogate. Proud mom Lisa’s social media is filled with photos of Logan, who is four. And now, Lisa and Lenny have an exciting family update.
Why is it never recorded when Housewives from different shows hang out? The cast crossover would make for such a great show. No, I do not think there are “too many” Real Housewives shows. I would never ever think that. The more Housewives, the better.
Even though my ideal spin-off show does not exist, the Housewives do take lots of photos and videos when they get together. It is almost like we are watching an all stars edition of Real Housewives. No need to look through everyone’s accounts though. All the photos are in this week’s Instagram Roundup .
There were some very impressive reality TV star Halloween costumes this year. Sure, some people just threw on an animal ear headband, but most of them really went all out. Lisa Rinna dressed like her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Erika Jayne and absolutely killed it. When Erika posted the photo on her own Instagram, it took me a few seconds to realize that it was Lisa and not Erika.
Cameran Eubanks’ dressed up her daughter Palmer as fellow Southern Charm cast member Patricia Altschul. She even dressed up her neighbor’s dog (long story) Elvis to accompany Palmer as Patricia’s beloved butler Michael.
Below Deck’s Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter reunited in Palm Springs. Below Deck Mediterranean stars Hannah Ferrier and Jamie Jason shared a photo from Naples, Italy. Could they be filming Below Deck Med Season 4? Or are they just on a girls trip?
New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga went to the first New York Knicks game of the season with some friends. Real Housewives of Orange County’s tres amigas Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, and Tamra Judge all hung out rocking matching blazers.
This week was all about family time when it comes to your favorite reality TV stars and of course they posted pictures from their hangouts.
New Jersey Housewives and sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga celebrated their children’s birthdays together.
Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Conrad Empson spent some quality time with his mother.
New York Fashion Week is not just for the clothing designers and models. Some of the Real Housewives also turned up to check out the looks. New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga were in attendance and turning it out with their looks.
Teen Mom stars Catelynn Baltierra (who is expecting a third baby!), Amber Portwood, Cheyenne Floyd, Bristol Palin, & Maci Bookout all gathered in the Big Apple as well.
