I don't know how Bravo is ever going to top Real Housewives of New Jersey. How do you do one better than a show that climaxes with a forehead-challenged Italian woman shouting, "You were stripping! Prostitution whore! You were fucking engaged 19 times! You fucking stupid bitch! Coming! To my! Dinner Party!!!?"
Lesley Abravanel reports
that Bravo has been scouting a cast for Real Housewives of Miami
. We heard a rumor a few weeks ago that someone was casting for a Real Housewives or Real Housewives-like show in the Magic City, but after Real Housewives of DC
was announced, we had to wonder how many more of these things they'd really try to push out. Guess we were wrong (though, it's worth noting Abravanel has been wrong about Bravo programming rumors before).
Abravanel is reporting a potential cast that includes a drag queen, a lesbian, and a lady who just had a high school named after her. No seriously, she cited drag diva-extraordinaire Elaine Lancaster, party promoter and erstwhile Madonna-bff Ingrid Casares, PR guru and permanently-engaged Tara Solomon, and Tracey Mourning (wife of Alonzo). And just like the school
, we have to wonder if Janet Reno would have been a more interesting choice... as well as some other ladies we've never heard of.
UPDATE: Surprise! Surprise! Lesley Abravanel is wrong again! When we heard about the show, it was just Housewives-esque, and that's the story. Bravo says the show Lesley is reporting on has nothing to do with Bravo or the franchise
