If the preview of the third season of The Real Housewives of Miami isn’t just clever editing, we are in for a bumpy ride. The three B’s come to mind, Boobs, Break-ups and Black Magic. The usual suspects are back – Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Lisa Hochstein and Joanna Krupa. Alexia Echevarria is back full time, which hopefully means her son is doing much better. Marysol Patton and Ana Quincoces have been put on recurring status and Karent Sierra is nowhere to be found this season. Which honestly, is just fine by me. Well, except for the fact that Mama Elsa will be on less, which is sort of devastating.
Some of this season’s highlights include Joanna and her sister, baring their breasts in a hot tub, with Lisa feeling and sizing them up while Lea looks on. Awkward! Maybe this is just a scene from a bachleorette party as two of the girls plan to wed this season. We see Adriana meeting at outdoor museum Wynwood Walls explaining what she wants on her big day to whom I assume is her wedding planner. Joanna and Romain discuss signing a pre-nup (Good thinking, Romain!). Ms. Krupa, however, doesn’t seem to be very happy about it.
The other women may not be marrying, but aren’t short on drama. Poor Lisa continues to struggle with infertility. Marysol visits a tarot card reader who tells her an “older blonde woman” has been conjuring up black magic to use against her. Could that be her own mother? Elsa sure fits that description.
There will also be plenty of conflict. Romain and Frederic have words, and possibly, fists. Joanna and Lisa have a fight in which Lisa calls Joanna “delusional”. Adriana tells Lea to “Have a merry life with all your riches. Sorry I wasn’t good enough to be your friend.” Alexia has words with both Lisa and Lea. The confrontation with Lea is over lunch, and the one with Lisa seems to be on a party bus.
It’s a show in a show, Battle of the Bravolebs: Wedding Edition, as Adriana and Joanna both walk down the aisle. It remains to be seen if Lea makes an appearance at Adri’s wedding, or Lisa at Joanna’s. Will the girls be enemies all season? Will they kiss and make up? Who the hell knows! I do know, that I’m looking forward to watching the gals from the 305 this season, which begins Monday August 12th at 9 on Bravo. That Miami heat can make you a little wacky; I’m a local, you can trust me on that one.
