Real Housewives of Miami May Be Canceled; Joanna Krupa Allegedly Wants to Jump Ship

It's hard out there for a Miami Bravolebrity. The Magic City's Real Housewives franchise is one the Bravo network's newest, launched in 2011 as a rebranding of the failed series Miami Social, and ever since, it's been struggling to achieve the same kind of viewership as more successful series, like ones set in New Jersey and Beverly Hills.

The last season of RHOM ended with two weddings and a spat of catfighting in November. But it doesn't seem to have done the trick. Now, TMZ reports, Bravo execs are once again considering canceling the series.

But Joanna Krupa's not letting that stop her.

TMZ sources say that Krupa's angling to join the cast of one of Bravo's California series, either Beverly Hills or Orange County, in the hopes of becoming the next Bethenny Frankel or NeNe Leakes. Rumor has it that she's been shmoozing with Beverly Hills stars Kyle Richards and Joyce Giraud and O.C. housewife Gretchen Rossi in the hopes of showing Bravo how well she'd fit in.

We can't say we're surprised. It's just like a Miami girl to try to make it in L.A.

More surprising is TMZ's report that "the tone of some internal discussions [at Bravo] is [RHOM] may not return." Miami may not have the tax fraud and evasion drama of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice, or the financial and divorce troubles of Atlanta's Porsha Stewart. But here's what it does have: Lisa Hochstein, the plastic wife of a "boob god" fighting against local government to tear down her own house; Krupa, a model who'll take just about any chance she gets to show off her rockin' body; and the Housewives franchise's most famous face, in the form of Elsa Patton. (Miss you, mama!)

And let's not forget Lea Black, whose husband, Roy Black, will represent Justin Bieber in court after his Miami Beach arrest last week. You know Bravo viewers are going to want to "watch what happens" with all that.

Of course, Miami would almost certainly be better off without a TV show documenting the fabricated lives of a few of its most faaaaah-bulous women, especially with all the new series in the works. HBO's Ballers and FX's Hoke are just a few Miami-based projects in the works -- scripted series by established, talented writers starring real actors. No offense, Krupa, but we'll take that over your expertly sculpted body any day.

I can't imagine the people of Miami will ever get tired of watching the locals fight for 5 minutes of fame after a few marry well. How else can they be see walking around half naked at events they will do anything to get an invite for?These shows are a true depiction of life in Miami Beach after all so why take it off the air?

I agree...it's detrimental to the women's image in general, not only to women in Miami...it's an embarrassment to humanity.

These shows are detrimental to all women. They serve to objectify females and portray us ignorant helpless and male dependent. Even the educated women are ridiculous making poor choices and outrageous moral behavior.

If Joanna Krupa is not happy as a Miami Housewife. I say get rid of her and get in a woman who appreciates the opportunity.

Joanna is a low class mess. She never fit in. She doesn't live in Miami. She talks bad about her own show. What an idiot! Could you imagine a baseball player talking bad about their own team? No wonder nobody likes her as Lisa said in the reunion.

The Miami cast could use some new blood. 

I say get rid of Joanna Krupa!
