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?
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.
You can now own a piece of Real Housewives history! Former Real Housewives of Miami star Ana Quincoces has called on housewives from all cities to donate some of their most iconic reunion dresses to be auctioned off for coronavirus relief efforts.
Housewives from all over the country answered Ana’s call and donated some amazing reunion dresses. This is such a fun and creative way to give back to our frontline workers. If you’re a Housewives superfan, you don’t want to miss this auction. Ana has collected over 30 pieces from not only the Housewives, but also Andy Cohen himself!
The 90 Day Finance franchise has no shortage of hot mess couples. Even with all of the hot messes competing for stardom on the current seasons, Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima from Season 6 rank high on the list of the greatest. The couple started out with Col-tee bringing his Brazilian bombshell home to live with his mother and forcing her to eat Mama Debbie‘s beef stew. Col-tee then proposed at dinner on top of a Vegas skyscraper despite knowing Larissa was deathly afraid of heights. Things quickly spiraled from there. By the end of the season, Larissa had been arrested for domestic violence multiple times, they were on the verge of divorce, and the Queen was facing deportation.
That’s why it is a little surprising to see that they are coming back for Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?. Sure, they are entertaining, but we already saw one Happily Ever After? season showing their total dissolution as a couple. I know this is 90 Day Fiance, which sometimes resembles the Twilight Zone, but isn’t the whole point of the Happily Ever After? franchise to show what happens to our favorite couples once they are married? If they wanted to film people separately they could just call it “Stupid People Dating” or something along those lines.
Bravo has been airing throwback episode marathons to entertain everyone while they stay at home. Last week concluded with a Real Housewives of Miami Season 3 marathon. This had many people wondering why the show never returned?
At this point, we’ve seen so many Real Housewives shows with dud seasons, yet they came back, with plenty of additional episodes. Was Real Housewives of Miami the greatest reality TV show? No, but many fans feel like it got canceled prematurely.
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.
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.
If the Real Housewives of New Jersey haven’t been banned from the fly-over states, it’s a corn shucking miracle! Poor Oklahoma is still dealing with the weaves and wackiness from last week’s episode as the ladies head off to a tense dinner. Margaret Josephs is happy to hear that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga seemed to have smoothed over their argument…although Tre is unaware of how riled up Joe Gorga is after hearing Melissa’s rehash of the nasty breakfast. At the restaurant, Jennifer Aydin is talking about her ginormous house. She has to have an extra “wife” to cook and clean her seven bedroom house. She even has cameras in every room and she does random bag checks before the nanny heads out for the evening. Jackie Goldschneider finds it frighteningly hilarious that Jennifer trusts the nanny with her children but not with her collection of Chanel.
To change the subject, Margaret enlists the ladies in a game of two truths and a lie. Her statements: she used to fool around with her high school gym teacher, she’s only done cocaine once, and her ex-husband used to lock her in a closet when she made him angry. The women are surprised to hear her lie was the gym teacher. They can’t imagine feisty Margaret putting up with that in her marriage. No one believes Dolores Catania when she states she had sex with her ex-husband/roommate Frank Catania last week. Jennifer goes for shock value with tales of playing the submissive to her bestie’s dominatrix, getting a butt lift, and pooping herself in traffic. She was lying about the butt lift. Jennifer was wild before she met her ultra-conservative husband.
