Get ready for some spicy LATINAS! Bravo welcomes The Real Housewives of Miami!
The series premieres February 22nd. And, now that the network has revealed the six newest stars via press release today, here’s the run down of who’s who (pictured left to right):
Alexia Echevarria is the executive editor of Venue magazine, where she covers fashion and celebrity culture. She lives on Miami Beach with her husband Herman and has two sons from a previous marriage.
Marysol Patton (who supposedly pitched this show) is a Miami native who runs her own PR firm, the Patton Group. A divorcee, Patton is known for throwing bashes around town and loves to spend time with her mother, Elsa, who considers herself a “seer” and offers spiritual guidance people in town.
Larsa Pippen is married to basketball star Scottie Pippen and was known as the “Hottest NBA wife.” A mother of four, Pippen boasts that she’s successful at everything she does.
Cristy Rice was recently divorced from NBA star Glen Rice. The show will follow her single life as she juggles business (she owns a clothing store) and being a single mom.
Lea Black has a 9-year-old son with her lawyer husband. A strong supporter of President Obama, the Texas-born Housewife is invested in her own charitable endeavors.
Adriana DeMoura-Sidi is fiery and flirtatious and … newly engaged. Her personality lands her in trouble and the subject of much gossip among the ladies.
Interestingly, word on the street back in March was that Larsa, Marysol, and Lea were all pitching a different show to Bravo tentatively called “The Miami Social Club.” Guess Bravo decided to pull a switcharoo and induct them into the Housewives franchise instead.
