Midweek Miami Gossip Roundup: Real Housewives and Nick Jonas

Let's be honest, Miami wouldn't be Miami without celebrities dropping in town, sunbathing, and making bad decisions. So we've decided to launch a weekly roundup where you can get all of your gossip about the weird, wonderful things happening in town: from singers at LIV, to gallery gossip, celebrities sunbathing and more, we've got you covered. This week brings a Nick Jonas spotting, an oh-so-Miami speedboat getaway, and cockroaches. 

Here's the best in this week's Miami gossip:
