Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

This post is mainly to point out that even big-time newspapers (or whatever the New York Post is) make embarrassing headline typos once in a while (I hope the copy editor gets an email from the EIC with the subject "Can We Talk?"). But in a more local angle, it seems Joan Rovers Rivers came to Miami to shoot a reality TV show. Great, just what we need: more reality TV! 

Fortunately, it's not Joan and Melissa Take Miami. It's called How'd You Get So Rich?, which, as the title suggests, features Joan asking rich people how they got rich. It's on TV Land. 

Joan Fleischman, naturally, got the scoop for the Miami Herald a few days ago. Joan grills area rich people Robert Zarco, an attorney, and Peter Loftin, the guy who owns the Versace mansion. 

Should be riveting television. Tune in August 5 for the first episode. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
