'The Real Housewives of Miami': Sizzle or Fizzle?
'The Real Housewives of Miami': Sizzle or Fizzle?
The reviews for RHOM are in and they are ... lukewarm. How is it that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills manage to make a splash but The Real Housewives of Miami may go the same way of The Real Housewives of DC? Sorry, I feel bad for reminding you of The Real Housewives of DC. Let's never speak of it again.

Let's take a look at the Real Housewives of Miami's sizzle potential, based on the first episode, the sneak peek of the season, and previews for next week's episode.

Sizzle: It takes place in Miami! Miami has celebrities, a fashion week, and lots of bikinis. It should be hot, right?

Sizzle: Marysol's "seer" mother, Elsa. Did you even know people looked like that?

Fizzle: The most interesting drama of the premiere episode already happened, so we got it in the form of Adriana re-telling the story of her husband's secret wife.

Sizzle: Weren't we promised a drag queen in the secondary cast? Or is it just one of the many people Lea "collects"?

Fizzle: Weren't we also promised some drama? Maybe more than someone saying something kind of mean about someone else? Judge for yourself in this preview of the season:

Sizzle: It looks like the Housewives will split into teams, and possibly be forced to take sides, throughout the season. This hasn't happened in a while, and it's a nice change from the five-against-one template we've seen before.

Here's a preview of next week's episode, let's break it down:

Sizzle: Fabulous party; Gloria Estefan.

Fizzle: JOE FRANCIS? Lea is auctioning off a stay at Joe Francis's mansion. Gross! Also, how bad is your season when you need to invite another Real Housewife to amp up your star power?

Here's the next clip:

Sizzle: The Housewives (Larsa and Cristy) are trying to convince Adriana to kick her fiancee to the curb. Also, Alexia is actually making some sense.

Fizzle: Without any pregnancy lies, recording contracts, table flipping, or crazy rants, this season is shaping up to be more boring than The Hills. I'm just saying, we're watching people a chew a lot.

What do you think? Sizzle or fizzle? Will you be watching The Real Housewives of Miami?
