"Romney Won?" Miami Celebrities React to Last Night's Presidential Election

Real Dragwife Elaine Lancaster's looking forward to four more years of fab Michelle Obama style.
And hell, even former Basketball Wife (and former Ochocinco wife) Evelyn Lozada thinks Obama and Biden are pretty bad-ass dudes.
But lest you lump Miami in with that stereotypical liberal Hollywood culture, remember: There's always Victoria Jackson.
Never change, VJ. Never change.
