You may have noticed that we’ve pretty much ignored “The Real Housewives of Miami” in its inaugural season. We know. That’s not like us. We’re usually all over the “Real Housewives” franchise. The thing is we have been watching, but there’s so little to say about them.
These housewives have very few redeeming qualities. They don’t come off smart, cultured or very complicated. And after watching the season, especially the finale, they don’t seem to like each other much either. So, we don’t feel so bad about how we feel.
So, how did the gals fare this season in our opinion? Let’s go down the list.
Lea Black: She at least brought some drama to the group. She reminds us of New York’s Ramona Singer in the way she has no filter between her brain and her mouth. And in the ongoing argument over invoicing Cristy for the charity, we side with Lea.
Marysol Patton: She could use a reality check now and then. Remember when she claimed in the premiere that she didn’t get plastic surgery? In the finale, it was crazy that after all the preparation she put into the table for her cooking lesson with the ladies that they would end up making it an infomercial for her new husband’s fancy astronaut food. Hello, Bravo cameras!
We have to give her props for bringing her mother, the witchy Elsa, into our lives. We’re going to get months of traction out of “Marysol, I’m a woman of this century. I’m not a Victorian lady.”
Adriana DeMoura-Sidi: This poor attention-starved thing. That pretty much sums up our feelings on her.
Alexia Echevaria: She seems pretty well-adjusted and doesn’t mind that her sons will probably still be living with her when they’re 35. We were a bit shocked that she runs a magazine and the model agent she brought her son to had no idea who she was. And now she wants to take the magazine national? She might want to deliver a stack downtown first.
Cristy Rice: Have you seen a more out of touch, delusional person in your life? Of course, you have. You watch “Real Housewives.” We should rephrase that. Cristy is wildly self-important and honestly we couldn’t stand a moment she was on-screen. She’s just a nasty person to everyone. And when it comes to the charity tickets? She had no intention of donating anything to that charity and she’s on-camera saying just that. And even if she didn’t sit down and have dinner, she brought friends and should have felt like giving something, anything. Better yet, she should have just stayed home.
Larsa Pippen: How great was watching Marysol’s mom read/ pick on her? The thing is she is immature, but people with money can be. But even more than that, there’s not a deep thought that crosses her mind ever. And actually, that’s what we thought Elsa really meant when she called her immature. She probably meant shallow.
What were your thoughts on the finale? Should the women come back for second season?
