Who doesn’t adore America’s sweetheart Bethenny Frankel of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City or religiously follow (openly or not) the drama, drama, drama of The Real Housewives of New Jersey… and of Orange Country… and Atlanta… and D.C.? So when a production source leaked to E! News that the Miami version of Housewives is not just happening—it’s actually in the can—we can only say, “Finally! It’s about time.” After all, Miami has all the trimmings to make another successful series about housewives: lavish lifestyles, marital woes, rivalries, social affairs, beauty, money, potential backstabbing, comedy, tragedy—you know, drama.
So who’s rumored to be on the show? The elusive insider says Scottie Pippin’s wife, Larsa, and former Lakers/Heat player Glen Rice’s ex-wife, Christy, will both be playing their (rich) housewives roles. Other names on the cast list may include socialite Adriana Sidi, Venue Magazine editor Alexia Echeverria, The Patton Group owner Marysol Patton, South Beach’s drag diva Elaine Lancaster, and charity planner Lea Black, the wife of criminal defense attorney Roy Black.
The source also says the show will be a “tamer, sexier” show. Huh? Isn’t that kind of an oxy moron? We here at Haute Living certainly think The Real Housewives of Miami is going to turn up the heat on the Bravo television programs. We hope this show lasts longer than Miami Social did. Whatever happened to those guys?
