Articles for The Real Housewives of Miami Season 1

Just as we were all getting ready to settle into another season of The Real Housewives of New York, the rug is being pulled out from under us. Apparently, according to, we‘ll have to wait until Spring for Real Housewives of New York. We thought it was premiering Feb. 15 but instead, we‘ll be making way for The Real Housewives of Miami, premiering Feb. 22. The ol‘ bait and switch!This will be the third new batch of Housewives in a row that Bravo has introduced to us. And the faces of Miami seem even more pumped and tucked than the ones in Beverly Hills. I‘m scared! Have a look for yourself in this video preview of the season: Read more »
I can‘t believe The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is over! Well, it‘s not entirely over because next Tuesday Bravo is airing a special "producer‘s cut" of the famed Dinner Party from Hell. More Alison DuBois? We couldn‘t possibly ... WE SO COULD! But that‘s not all that‘s going on with Bravo. Aside from the Feb. 28 premiere of Bethenny Ever After (ohhhh, mixed emotions), Bravo is swapping out The Real Housewives of New York City for The Real Housewives of Miami, moving RHONY to a spring premiere date.Apparently they just finished filming RHONY and wanted to give the stars a break. So much to edit, you know?! So instead, we get The Real Housewives of Miami, which I am excited about for one reason: Read more »
So much is going on with the ever-increasing population of Real Housewives! Things are far from over for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and things are just getting started again for the Real Housewives of New York (with or without Bethenny). Did you catch the sneak peek at The Real Housewives of Miami? We‘ve already got news on one of them!Camille Donatacci Grammer on the Red CarpetBut this time, without Kelsey! Camille will be a red carpet commentator for Showbiz Tonight live from the Oscars. Why? And will anyone watch that? I guess Camille might be a reason to watch. Showbiz says she will be a perfect fit for "TV‘s most provocative entertainment news show." Provocative! [] Read more »
The barely-anticipated premiere of The Real Housewives of Miami is upon us. Are you ready to meet the new ‘wives? Whether or not you‘re ready is irrelevant, you‘re meeting them anyway. The vibe in Miami is free, sexual, and expensive. Party all day in Miami, why not? So let‘s see what has washed up on the shores of Miami for us to look at.Meet Lea! She "collects" outrageous people. She also considers herself outrageous and lives her life accordingly. Hi, Dennis Rodman, Lea‘s friend! She also commissioned a creepy, uncanny valley-esque painting of her son, who looks like an 8-year old Andrew McCarthy‘s character in Pretty in Pink, to hang in her giant home. Normal people stuff! Read more »
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.  Read more »
The Real Housewives of Late Night are back for their second season on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the premiere may be one of the most magnificent things I‘ve ever seen. You can tell Jimmy Fallon is a fan of the Real Housewives franchise. This episode is giving us a little New Jersey, a little New York. Anything look familiar?Enjoy Jimmy Fallon‘s homage to The Real Housewives: Read more »
This week‘s episode may as well be a contest to see if the Miami Housewives can out-boring themselves from the premiere. They‘re already at the point of spending more time talking about things and re-living events than they spent actually doing them. Adriana tells her boyfriend/fiancee about how she walked the catwalk in Miami Fashion Week (after the show was over, on her own dare) in front Cristy and Larsa. "They must have been so jealous," her fiancee tells her. I don‘t think they were. Adriana has already decided that Cristy and Larsa, the "mean girls," are definitely jealous. Jealousy! It‘s a Real Housewife‘s favorite buzzword.  Read more »
The Real Housewives of Miami is tanking in the ratings. How badly? It‘s doing worse than The Real Housewives of DC. The premiere brought in only 1.21 million viewers, as opposed to DC‘s 1.6. It‘s not just the ratings, either, it seems like across the board viewers and critics agree that this series is just not doing it for them. So what gives? [Reality Tea]Personally, something bothers me about the series but I can‘t really put my finger on it. Is it that I don‘t relate to Miami, having never lived anywhere near Florida? Is it just that the timing is off? That no one feels like watching a TV show about Miami before spring has even hit? Maybe it‘s a revolt against bumping The Real Housewives of New York season 4 back. What is it? Read more »
Let‘s get one thing straight right off the bat: everyone pays. That‘s right, whether you have a normal looking face or a busted one, you don‘t just go to Lea Black‘s charity event without buying a ticket. Lea will make Cristy PAY! Oh, and last week on Watch What Happens Live, Lea called in and told Cristy she was working the room like a thousand dollar hooker. SUH-NAP.So Lea is going to invoice Cristy, and that not only ballsy, but also pretty awesome. I‘m starting to dislike Cristy and her black satin palazzo pants. If you ask Cristy, she was just doing it "in good faith," not because she needed to go to another charity event. Gross, this whole thing is just gross. I echo Cristy‘s sentiments, "I can‘t stand five more seconds of this conversation." LET‘S DANCE! MIAMI!  Read more »
Some shows are just best when you‘re getting your drink on, and the Real Housewives shows are no exception. I‘m not a sommelier, but I do know my Housewives, and here are my recommendations for drink pairings to go with each series.The Real Housewives of New York City: Pinot Grigio! Read more »
Tonight on The Real Housewives of Miami ... someone will DIE! Spoiler alert: It‘s a pig. I‘ll let you decide how you feel about that.Larsa‘s living in a zoo. When her kids do well in school, they get an award, so naturally they had to go pick up "some lizards" (as ya do!) and a rabbit. Hopefully the nannies can take care of the extra pets and keep track of them and try not to get nicknamed after one of them. Alexia is going to a pig farm to kick off her cooking party. She‘s going so that she can pick her very own pig to slaughter. Hell to the no. Alexia‘s just worried that the pig will stink. Most dead things do.  Read more »
What‘s going on with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is there an end in sight for Miami? Don‘t worry, there is! No More New Housewives, Andy Cohen PromisesEven though I was really hoping for The Real Housewives of Dallas, Andy Cohen tells OK! Magazine, "I really feel like we‘re done." When asked if there might be any more spin-offs (like a Kim Zolciak version of Bethenny Getting Married?), Andy Cohen said of the Housewives, "I think they‘re all good where they are." It‘s a bit of a relief, isn‘t it? I like the current Housewives (except Miami) and I‘m not ready to let anyone else into my heart.  Read more »
Marysol‘s getting married! She and Philippe had a Freaky Friday, because she was calm on the day of the wedding and he was nervous like she was the day before. I know that‘s not truly what a Freaky Friday (the phenomenon) is, but you know what I mean. Marysol put roses in her hair like Phaedra at the baby shower! William Levy, who has been made fun of on The Soup numerous times, stops by the offices at Venue. He looks better on this show than on his soap opera. It‘s Larsa‘s turn to host the dinner/cooking party so she hires a tough chef with tattoos to out-do everyone before her. "Lemme getchu a meatbawl!" says the giant chef who looks like a Grand Theft Auto character.  Read more »
It‘s smart that they‘re calling this a Watch What Happens: Live special, because I tried to watch last week‘s finale episode and couldn‘t really make it all the way through. I‘m very interested to see how they do a live reunion show, though, and grateful that it can‘t go on for more than an hour.Maybe the season wasn‘t long or explosive enough to merit a big, fancy reunion outside of the Bravo clubhouse? WHOA, Miss Lea Black has had some MAJOR work done. That might be the most exciting thing of the whole reunion. Seriously, Lea looks snatched. And incapable of facial movement.  Read more »
So, first thing‘s first: The Real Housewives of Miami live reunion was insane. It was one of those hours of programming that you either can‘t stand, or live for. Whether you watched the actual season or not, it was pretty entertaining to watch all those women yell at each other for an hour. They were relentless! The Real Housewives of New York City premieres its fourth season this week, and I really can‘t wait. There‘s a new Housewife, they‘re going blondes vs. brunettes this season, and the girls are going to Morocco. Read more »

Agreed, the point of reality TV competitions is to give the spotlight to a bunch of unknowns who are hoping to make it big in Hollywood. But they wouldn‘t really get anywhere without the guidance of professionals. We‘re dedicating this to the hosts and judges of reality television, who have given their support to dreamers all over the country. There‘s Big Brother‘s Julie Chen, the judging panel of America‘s Next Top Model, probably not Idol‘s Simon Cowell, and more.   Read more »
I know, I know, this article‘s title doesn‘t make much sense. "What‘s so real about reality TV?" you might ask. "It‘s fake situations involving not-so-fake people. I don‘t watch that sort of thing!"And yet we still do, which explains why Heidi Montag remains as (supposedly) relevant as ever. It‘s also the reason why we watch the Kardashians make an issue out of birth control. And also the reason why Team Cupcake exists. And why we hate Rachel on Big Brother. And why Paris Hilton survived that sex tape and managed to run for president of the United States. Read more »
Unfortunately for modern music consumers, it‘s only too well-known that cast members from the Real Housewives franchise often have devious desires to use their respective shows as a platform to promote worthless music careers.  Read more »
The Real Housewives of Miami may have gotten off to a lackluster start, especially compared to other cities in Housewives franchise, but if cast member Adriana De Moura has anything to do with it, that will change with the next season. Read more »
After a low-rated first season, The Real Housewives of Miami aren‘t rolling over just yet. Bravo has decided to give the South Beach off-shoot of their most-watched franchise another shot.  Read more »

Last month, Bravo announced that the poorest rated show of their Real Housewives franchise, The Real Housewives of Miami, would return for a second season. Now in an interview with the Miami New Times, Adriana de Moura, one of the three returning housewives, talks about the upcoming season.  Read more »
Update: Andy Cohen, executive VP of original programming and development at Bravo, has denied the claims of a new Real Housewives franchise on Twitter. Apparently the new show is not officially confirmed, but we can still dream, right? According to a source at, Bravo is planning on an addition to the Real Housewives franchise by adding a Real Housewives of Dallas.  Read more »
