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.  

Instagram Roundup

The Vanderpump Rules cast used to shade Lala Kent for travelling in her boyfriend Randall Emmett’s private jet. Now that Lala is cool with everyone on the show, they too get those same travel perks here and there. Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Stassi Schroeder, and Stassi’s boyfriend Beau Clark all joined Lala and Randall in Cabo for engagement celebrations- or at least that’s what was mentioned in the Instagram caption. Were they celebrating Lala and Randall’s engagement? Or were they there in honor of Jax and Brittany’s engagement? Or maybe it’s just a combination of both. Either way, they had an enviable vacation, or at least that’s what it seems like via the Instagram posts.

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.”
