Okay, I woke up this
afternoon morning to all sorts of Miami drama. Where to begin? Well first of all, it’s not news to anyone that I am one of the half-dozen or so total viewers of Real Housewives of Miami. Their ratings suck. In fact pretty much every reality show they shoot in Miami gets lousy ratings. Big Ang’s new VH1 show, Miami Monkey has been tanking in the ratings. I don’t understand this. It’s such a beautiful city. The housewives in my opinion are a second only to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But alas, no one agrees with me. But that is not stopping Bravo from trying to turn the beat around in Miami. There is one more Bravo show coming and maybe this is one we can all agree on?
Bravo is thrilled to announce we’ll explore the real estate world with Million Dollar Listing Miami. Our new series will showcase the sexy city where top luxury agents battle it out in the world of high-end real estate. With a surging market in South Florida, properties are selling for record rates and agents are cashing in on massive commissions like never before.
On Million Dollar Listing Miami, the mansions are bigger, the high-rises are taller, the amenities are more luxe and the locals have access to amazing views, beaches and a lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the world. Business can get heated as the brokers attempt to make a name for themselves and outshine their competition by landing the next big listing in America’s hottest city.
I might actually watch this. I don’t know why exactly I stopped watching the Million Dollar Listing shows. I like them just fine. I love a good marathon. So do you think this new show will survive the curse of Miami reality shows?
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE. Last week the Miami reunion was filmed. As we all know, these reunion shows are a last ditch effort for the housewives to prove they are drama worthy. This is why contracts are never given out before the reunion. With RHOM fighting for it’s life in ICU the prospect of another season, the cancellation grim reaper expected at any moment, it seems a few of the ladies went full out in perhaps their last audience
with the pope Andy to make the cut, if by some miracle they have one more season.
So there was drama. Lots of drama. Maybe enough drama to get you people to tune in to the reunion. or not.
Reality Tea is reporting that Lisa is threatening to sue Joanna for defamation. If you recall, Lisa threatened a lawsuit before when she claimed that she was libeled by a commenter on a blog. At that time she told Miami Herald journalist Lesley Abravanel:
“This person is an acquaintance we’ve invited in our home and who has smiled in our faces. She had no shame in saying these horrible things. If you are going to put something that nasty, saying someone’s an escort, a porn star, that’s a big deal to me . . . . The fact that she knows me, and I’ve seen her in my home, well, it just sits the wrong way . I’m not going to go after every blogger and commenter out there. Trust me, I’ve been called way worse. I have thick skin as part of this whole show, but this really struck a chord. I didn’t want it to get out of hand, and I’m all for freedom of speech, but when you know someone personally and act like you’re friendly with them and then go making an accusation like that, it’s a big deal.’’
Could it be that Joanna made a similar allegation on the reunion? All signs point to yes. Is it the pot calling the kettle black? Absolutely. Remember last year when Adrianna called Joanna a porn star and an escort? Then on WWHL Adrianna told Andy it was true and Joanna called in from Poland or somewhere all sue happy? Pot. Kettle. I would think this was all storyline if it were not for the fact that Lisa had done this before and tried to keep it out of the press. I mean down here in Georgia we have a saying, “A hit dog howls.” That is, if you were not a porn star or an escort you would not care about the allegations.
Meanwhile on twitter, Ana has not mended relations with Lisa since their feud and is tweeting that if a reality star wants to file defamation charges on someone they better be squeaky clean. Which reminds me… I haven’t heard another word from Sheree Whitfield about her defamation lawsuit against me. That would have been some JUICY blog fodder. When you agree to go on a reality show, especially one that’s goal is to make you look foolish and dance for our enjoyment… you can’t really sue people for damage to your reputation.
I tried to contact a Miami source about the reunion. That source said she had only heard one word about it, ‘trash’. Which is great for us right? Isn’t this what reunions have come to be all about? Trashy, classless fighting between former porn stars/strippers/escorts/whatever?
So will you watch the new Million Dollar Listing Miami? Or perhaps the reunion?
