Five Miami Women We'd Rather See on The Real Housewives of Miami

The stars of The Real Housewives of Miami can be entertaining, sure -- if you're into drag queen drama, blowjob controversies, terrifying plastic surgery, and throwing people into pools. But let's be real about these "Real" Housewives. They're wacky and tacky enough for Bravo franchises based in cities like New York or Atlanta. But here in Miami, our nation's capital of bizarre people and faaahbulous lifestyles, these 'wives rank at about a two on the WTF scale.

So while we'll still be tuning in this Monday for the season three premiere of The Real Housewives of Miami, we've gotta admit that Bravo could've done better. Here are five local ladies who could easily replace Lisa, Lea, Adriana, Alexia, and Joanna.

But not Elsa. Never Mama Elsa.

Every Housewives franchise needs a foil, what comedians call a straight man -- essentially, someone good and decent who makes everyone else look extra-embarrassing by comparison. Arison, as co-founder of YoungArts, helps creative kids achieve their dreams. Compared to that, damn near everyone else looks embarrassing. Plus, she has tons of Carnival Cruise Lines money, meeting Bravo's "ridiculously rich" casting requirement.

The wife of Marlins owner and Most Hated Man in Miami Jeffrey Loria hosted a swanky South Beach Wine and Food Festival event last year -- inside the very baseball park her husband had recently used to swindle local taxpayers out of millions. Clearly, she has the entertaining chops necessary to host even the most tense, catfight-y cast dinners. Plus, Miami viewers could cathartically throw things at the screen every time her husband makes a cameo.

They need to cut back on these boring white bitches and bring in more latinas and a black housewife. I thought the catty rivalry that Anna, Marysol and Alexia had against Karent last season was very authentic Miami. The drag queens and Elsa were excellent touches too. Lisa and Joanna need to go.

I've seen episode one. A lot has happened since season 2 and they will deliver this year.


A 54-year-old obese woman in a Hialeah Sedano's parking lot wearing a halter top and stained, spandex capris coming apart at the seams (with a "lucky money blessing" candle in her shopping cart) would be a much more accurate 'Housewife of Miami.'
