Can the Real Housewives of Miami hang with the Housewives Elite?
Bravo has added another city to the Housewives list: MIAMI. Miami is known for their ethnic women from many Latin backgrounds, finally bringing some spice to the Housewives name. Miami also houses a diversity of flavor with its many nightlife hot spots, and a culture that oozes sex appeal 24/7 because of its tropical atmosphere.
The premiere episode of The Housewives of Miami was yesterday February 22, here's the cast:
Lea Black: Has a 9 year old with husband Roy Black who is a criminal defense attorney with big clients such as Kelsey Grammar...she has also helped fundraise for Barack Obama's presidential campaign. She seems to take on the role of the leader of the group who is very outspoken and apparently very busy since she's always on her blackberry.
Adriana DeMoura-Sidi: This Brazilian full time mom is an art curator who is engaged to fiance Fredric. Out of all the housewives, she is overly confident in her presence and is not afraid to let others know that she's the bomb. She will complete any dare that is directed towards her and she flirts non-stop with men. The other cast mates already seemed threatened by her over-confidence.
Marysol Patton: Since her divorce dating back to 10 years ago, this Miami native runs her own public relations firm. She is now in a relationship with a man 10 years her junior, and also featured in the show is her mother who is a "seer/witch." Marysol seems like the overprotective one in the group, where she's overly cautious and doesn't like to take chances.
Larsa Pippen: She has been married to NBA all-star Scottie Pippen since 1997 and has 4 kids with him, 3 boys and 1 girl. This Lebanese beauty knows she's the hottest cast member of the group, and stays looking good for her basketball husband in which she basically runs the entire household and is in charge of his finances. She plays the sexy confident, yet not so much in your face siren.
Cristy Rice: Recently divorced from NBA basketball player Glen Rice, she shares the unofficial title of "Hottest NBA Wife" with friend and co-star Larsa Pippen. She has 3 kids and owns a clothing store in Miami and is officially going to "live out loud" in her native hometown.
Alexia Echevarria: this cuban Barbie look alike is the executive editor of Spanish language lifestyle magazine "Venue." She is married to her husband Hernan and has 2 sons from a previous marriage. She is already being criticized for her role as a mother who lets her oldest son, who's not yet 18 stay out all night and is okay with him drinking.
This housewives season boasts the best looking cast of the Bravo franchise, but how far will the show continue with overly inflated egos? Yes, the women look beautiful, but most of the show seemed to be about who's more confident, who's the best looking, EVERYTHING PHYSICAL BASICALLY! My favorite housewife is Larsa Pippen because she holds down her family yet balances time to look good and hang with her friends. CATCH THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MIAMI TUESDAYS AT 7PM ON BRAVO!!!
