The Real Housewives of Miami Season Two Premiere Review: A (Clearly) New Miami

Miami is home of many dreams, ideals, and different cultures. But for The Real Housewives of Miami, it is also the home for second chances.

After its lackluster and contrived first season, the Real Housewives of Miami returns to Bravo tomorrow with a revamped second season, featuring new Housewives, a new look, and an apology for last year's hot mess of an inaugural season. Most people (including myself) felt that the show would undoubtedly be canceled like its D.C. counterpart was due to its lack of watercooler factor, but Andy Cohen must have seen something worth salvaging with this batch of women by giving them a renewal and shutting up the naysayers in the process.

However, it is commonly said that first appearances are everything, and it is highly understandable if a lot of viewers still have enough of a bitter taste in their mouth from Rhom's first outing

The Real Housewives of Miami: Meet Ana Quincoces and Lisa Hochstein

The Real Housewives of Miami return this week and today we continue introducing the new Housewives who are sure to add some much-needed drama to the show this year. Monday, you met Dr. Karent Sierra and Polish model Joanna Krupa, who will take center stage while dishing their own slices of drama to the cast. Now, Tvo would like you to meet the triple threat businesswoman Ana Quincoces and professional Housewife Lisa Hochstein.

Ana Quincoces, Esq.

Last year, Alexia Echevarria was considered the resident Cuban Barbie on the Real Housewives of Miami. But Ana Quincoces has stolen that title by having the looks, brains, and resume that would make an actual Barbie doll go, "F*ck that bitch!".  With the hectic occupations of lawyer, chef, and writer under her belt, will Ana be able to add 'reality show star' to her roster?

The Real Housewives of Miami: Meet Karent Sierra & Joanna Krupa

Bravo is about to get hot under the collar as the Real Housewives of Miami returns with a new look, new attitude, and most importantly, four new Housewives!

After a disastrous first season and an even more disastrous live reunion special, most fans of the Real Housewives franchise had pegged the ladies of Miami as D.O.A. and expected them to meet the same fate of their D.C. sisters in cancellation heaven. However, Bravo had different plans for the Miami Housewives and decided to give the show a second chance by trimming off some unnecessary/unwanted fat (aka Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice) and giving it a much-needed makeover. The revamped Real Housewives of Miami will include new additions to the cast to join returning Housewives Lea Black, Adriana De Moura Sidi, and Marysol Patton in giving us enough face and drama to make us forget that the

Muy Caliente! It's The Real Housewives of Miami Season Two!

Muy Caliente! It's The Real Housewives of Miami Season Two!

This time last year, we had thought the sun had set on the lackluster The Real Housewives of Miami. However, Bravo felt that the show needed a second chance and an even much more needed facelift to woo viewers who were turned off by the last ever Real Housewives installment.

Today, Bravo has finally revealed the (hopefully) polished version of The Real Housewives of Miami, which includes four new Housewives joining returning cast members Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, and Marysol Patton. The new Housewives are actress/model Joanna Krupa, "professional housewife" Lisa Hochstein, celebrity chef/author Ana Quincoces, and celebrity dentist Karent Sierra. Cristy Rice and Larsa Pippen will not be back (thank God). Alexia Echevarria will be returning only in a recurring format since she's taking care of her son Frankie, who was in a horrible car accident earlier this year.

'Real Housewives of Miami' bloodbath: Why weren't Larsa and Cristy re-upped for season 2?

'Real Housewives of Miami' bloodbath: Why weren't Larsa and Cristy re-upped for season 2?
Step forward if you’re going to be on the second season of The Real Housewives of Miami. Not so fast, Larsa Pippen! In a surprisingly mercenary move yesterday, Bravo cut two of the Miami Housewives from its roster. Though Marysol Patton, Lea Black, and Adriana De Moura survived the cuts, Pippen will be joined in the reality half-off bin with Cristy Rice. (Housewife Alexia Echevarria will be returning, but in a limited capacity, says a Bravo rep.) Though Bravo has yet to comment on why these two ladies hit the cutting room floor, Housewives history has proven one thing:

Real Housewives of Miami Returns for Season 2

Real Housewives of Miami Returns for Season 2
The Real Housewives of Miami will be back! Well, some of them. Of the original six, Marysol Patton, Lea Black, and Audriana de Moura are returning for season 2 of the show, Bravo announced Thursday. That means Larsa Pippen, Cristy Rice and Alexia Echevarria are out. "The Real Housewives of Miami follows a group of the most beautiful, connected and influential women in town who work hard and play harder," states a press release from Bravo. "This season will give viewers an inside look at these aspirational women as they juggle family, work and the fabulous social scene in a city where the food is spicy,

The Real Housewives of Miami Season 2: Yay? Or Why Even Bother? Update!

The Real Housewives of Miami Season 2: Yay? Or Why Even Bother? Update!

Just when I was working on a piece asking whether if the Real Housewives of Miami should return for a second season, the Hollywood Reporter's Jethro Nededog finally blessed us with an answer whether you liked it or not. The mamacitas of the Real Housewives of Miami will be making a return to Bravo's line up sometime soon, but is this announcement cause for celebration and/or should we even care anymore?

The show, which premiered last February, didn't leave too much of an impression on fans of the Real Housewives franchise except for having the first ever live reunion show of the franchise. Plus with the Miami branch being the last city ever for the franchise (at least domestically), you would think the show would have come harder than their predecessors to live up to a

Two "Miami Housewives" Get the Boot!

There's been a shakeup on "The Real Housewives of Miami!"Housewife Adriana De Moura spilled the beans in a recent interview with the Miami Herald -- telling the newspaper that Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice are out. "Producers didn’t want this to go in a "Basketball Wives" direction," she says. "We’ll portray Miami the way it should be portrayed.’’Ouch. Adriana says she has no clue who the replacement housewives will be -- but she does say the show has plenty of people vying for the spots. "Now half of Miami wants to be in it," she says. Read more

'The Real Housewives of Miami' finale: 90 minutes of 'oh, no you didn't'

You may have noticed that we've pretty much ignored "The Real Housewives of Miami" in its inaugural season. We know. That's not like us. We're usually all over the "Real Housewives" franchise. The thing is we have been watching, but there's so little to say about them.

These housewives have very few redeeming qualities. They don't come off smart, cultured or very complicated. And after watching the season, especially the finale, they don't seem to like each other much either. So, we don't feel so bad about how we feel.

So, how did the gals fare this season in our opinion? Let's go down the list.

Lea Black: She at least brought some drama to the group. She reminds us of New York's Ramona Singer in the way she has no filter between her brain and her mouth. And in the ongoing argument over invoicing Cristy for the charity,

Real Housewives: Miami Housewives Will Have A Live Reunion Show?!

While watching last night's episodes of the Real Housewives of Miami and Watch What Happens Live!, I was delivered two shocks. The first shock came in the announcement that next week's episode will be the season finale of the Miami branch of the Real Housewives franchise. After six episodes, I still don't know these women that well and that doesn't sit right with me for some reason. Then again, I really can't stand the Horrid Sisters (aka Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice) so this will be a blessing in disguise since I won't have to seem them for awhile.

The second shock of the night was when Andy Cohen announced that the Miami girls will be treated with a Live reunion show! Am I the only taking this as a "Wtf?!?!?" Moment? Why should these ladies be subjected to a live reunion show after six episodes and not the Atlanta or Beverly Hills Housewives?

Miami Housewife Marysol Patton: The Battle Of Four V. Two Continues! Exclusive!

Cristy & Larsa are up against the rest of the cast of ‘The Real Housewives of Miami.’ Whose side are you on?

On the last episode of The Real Housewives of Miami, Cristy Rice crashed Lea Black’s black-tie event and refused to pay for a ticket. This was the first time we clearly saw the two sides (like we predicted) drawn by this new cast — Lea, Marysol Patton, Alexia Echevarria, Lea Black and Adriana DeMoura-Sidi against basketball wives Cristy and Larsa Pippen. And the rift you saw on TV is real, Marysol tells exclusively — it continues “until this day!”

“Everybody is cordial when we have to get together for filming and photo shoots, but you know, there are four of us [Marysol, Alexia, Lea and Adriana] who are friendly and hang out outside of all this filming,” says Marysol. ”There are two [Cristy and Larsa] that do the same as well. You can’t put six

The Real Housewives of Miami 1.01 "Paradise Cost" Review

Maybe I've been spoiled tremendously by the excess excellence of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, because tonight's premiere of Bravo's Real Housewives of Miami only left me unimpressed and yearning for another Gratuitous Giggy Moment to happen at any moment.

When I wrote about being "blasè" over the announcement of Rhmia, I didn't know that I was actually writing my review of the pilot without actually seeing the episode. My original sentiments remain the same surprisingly, because I seriously thought my initial reaction to the show's announcement would all be for naught and I would end up worshipping the ground these women walked on. Instead, I couldn't help but roll my eyes several times as the women tried to be both civilized and provocative at the same time and failed horribly at the task. Even the opening credits lacked flair, which is a given after the entertaining credits of

'The Real Housewives of Miami' premiere: Party in the city where the heat is on!

'The Real Housewives of Miami' premiere: Party in the city where the heat is on!
Here’s what I learned about Will Smith’s favorite city from The Real Housewives of Miami, the latest iteration of Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise: It is not New York. It is not L.A. It’s a great place to find women with big, floppy hats, ridiculously long, flat-ironed hair, and sexy accents. Its largest PR firm employs a staggering 12 people. And some people refer to it as The Magic City. (Okay, fine, I actually learned that last fact on Wikipedia.)

I still don’t know, however, if Miami has what it takes to host a decent edition of Housewives.

‘The Real Housewives Of Miami’ Frenemy Lineup! Who Makes The Cut? Exclusive!

It’s four v. two! Know before you watch — find out which ‘Rhom’ stars are BFFs and which two just don’t fit in!

It’s cat-fight time! The gals of the all-new The Real Housewives of Miami have already taken sides — and it’s a battle of four against two. “Alexia Echevarria, Lea Black, Adriana DeMoura-Sidi and Marysol Patton are very close,” a source tells exclusively. “Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice are also very close.”

“You can see who is friends. Marysol, Alexia and Lea have known each other for a long time,” the source explains. “Lea and Adriana have [been friends] for a while too. This will prevail on the show.”

That leaves Cristy and Larsa on the outside, but at least they have the basketball-wives bond in common. Cristy is the ex-wife of former NBA star Glen Rice and Larsa is married to retired superstar Scottie Pippen.

The Miami Housewives on the Other Wives, Families and Andy Cohen

Adam Olszweski/Bravo

The Real Housewives of Miami starts this week and introduces the rest of the world to the divas of the Sunshine State. According to Lea Black, Alexia Echevarria and Marysol Patton, three of the show's cast members, the women of Miami will be like no other housewives you've seen before. In a recent conference call interview, the stars of the show talked about what sets this series apart from the others in the franchise, how it affects their families and how they feel about their boss Andy Cohen.

This Miami version of the show features six of the most influential and well-connected women in Dade County. Black is married to a high-powered criminal defense attorney and rubs elbows with Obama. Echevarria is the editor of Venue Magazine and publication for the local Latinas. Patton owns a PR firm and comes complete with a boisterous, opinionated "seer" (like
