So this is OFFICIALLY returning on Peacock :D
I'm not even sure WHY as it barely had a dedicated fanbase screaming for it's return, but HEY why not!

Casting for the new series:

Apparently returning:
Larsa Pippen (who was one of my worst Housewives EVER in her season 1 run :zombie: )
Adriana de Moura
Alexia Echevarria
Lisa Hochstein
and possibly RH of Beverley Hills GUEST STAR Marysol Patton too.

And new women trying out include Paulina Rubio :D





:disco:


Lea Black is allegedly not returning due to her husband's involvement with the Jeffrey Epstein case, and Joanna lives between LA & Poland.
WHO KNOWS about queen KARENT, Miami's answer to Pettifleur :D

I'm not really sure why they seem to be so determined to bring back so many old cast members. I haven't watched all of Miami, but it's only Lisa, Lea, Adriana and Joanna I'd bother with (and Karent to troll them all). With Lea & Joanna out, I'd just cast NEW PEOPLE to fill the gaps.
What does poor sad MARYSOL have to offer 10 years on, especially following the sad passing of Mama Elsa :(

I think Larsa was associated with the Kardashians which is why she’s the HBIC. I don’t remember hating her on the first season (which was a shit show).

I remember Adrianna being extra and Marysol being boring.

Marysol being back is the biggest head-scratcher. You got the impression that she was only kept around for seasons 2 and 3 because of her mother. Maybe they've brought her back as an excuse to show flashback footage of Mama Elsa every episode, which honestly I'm ok with.

I'm also fine with Lea not being back, as she was a bit too overwhelming on the cast most of the time.

I guess now it'll fall back to Lisa to be the Star Island glue of the group :disco:

I'll be needing Joanna's ex Romain to make an appearance in some way :horny:

So we have the cast, but no trailer, and Adriana is just a FRIEND OF :basil:

Can't say this cast is exactly inspiring CONFIDENCE in this reboot, tempted to say BIN IT without seeing a THING!

I'm absolutely here for this returning. I have high hopes for it being a dramatic season if they didn't even need to have the fiery Adriana as a full-time wife.

Would love to see cameos from Karent and Ana.

Lea's name probably won't even be mentioned due to her husband's connections to Jeff Epstein.

Oh that looks RIDICULOUS :D I like that they clearly have been given TELENOVA as the brief - it's giving me old-school New Jersey meets mid-school OC.

But yes, very bizarre that Marysol (of ALL PEOPLE) and Adriana are so prominent, yet neither are Housewives :confused:
Maybe Marysol has morphed into a mini-Mama Elsa during this time away :disco:

No one is holding back on their mess - it's like everyone is pulling together to make sure this show never goes off air again.

But the trailer looks amazing. I am assume I can jump into the new series without watching the previous ones given the time lapse.

I’d really recommend watching S2 and S3. S2 is honestly top tier housewives and one of my favourite series from all the franchises. Both reunions are great!

Mama Elsa is an icon, RIP :(

Season 2 is A LOT. I've struggled to watch it all the way through as it's just SO CHAOTIC, there's barely a moment of respite :D
That and the women feel VERY inorganic in how they've been pushed together (there's also SO MANY Housewives, as Alexia is basically a Housewife too despite not holding a mojito). It's a lot of fun, but I have to be in the mood/drunk to watch it.
That's before even considering that most of the drama comes from the extended cast of bonkers/chaotic SIDE CHARACTERS/family members than the Housewives themselves :D

I'm looking forward to season 4. Interesting that they seem to be putting Alexia front and centre as the Teresa character, as she has had a BONKERS life - she just wasn't especially engaging to watch last time around. But let's see.

I'm really interested in Julia Lemigova as a Housewife. Her life is INSANE (her baby died under extremely suspect circumstance, then her extremely wealthy husband was murdered and found dressed in a latex suit with a dildo up his arse, then she moved to Miami and married Martina Navratilova :D) How she speaks her tagline alone is giving me WILDCARD.

Adriana is apparently not full time as she wouldn't share her life on camera outside of group scenes - there's speculation she's lost all her money BLESS.

Final Miami thought - Lea Black had potential to be an all-time great Housewife, but she was on the WRONG CITY. She really should have been the anchor for a Texas season. Despite mostly being TOP DOG, she always seems so out of place with the other women in Miami :D

Episode 1 is apparently on Hayu UK TOMORROW!

You can watch the first 5 minutes here, it looks great and very glossy -



Bizarre how much screentime Marysol seems to be getting, yet she isn't a mojito holder :D

(also my brain really struggles to recognise Adriana with her new hair :D )

Yeah Adriana looks totally different from before.

I feel like I read about this separately years ago, so I *really* hope they get into it in the new series. That's quite a story :disco:

Watching episode one, the surgery is OUT OF CONTROL this reboot OMG :D
Larsa in particular - you can actually see exactly where she's been nipped, tucked, sliced and diced on her face to a level I haven't seen on a Housewives show before.

Anyway, it's really interesting to see Alexia as the central character on this. She's serving Teresa on a platter, but she also seems to sort of glue everybody together so perhaps it will WORK. Her son looks like a SLUG however.

Larsa isn't really giving me Housewife material (AGAIN), but it seems she's literally cast for the other women to drag her all season, and because she has 3 million+ Instagram followers so whatever I will allow.

Marysol is coming out of nowhere to be my favourite? She's mildly CAMPING it UP and her intro scene was super sweet and borderline EMOSH.
The newbies all really well cast too, Guerdy has REAL potential, and the doctor I thought was going to be super boring but seemingly isn't.

Scream at you being able to see Adriana actually reading her cue-card "Julia is a great friend of mine" during her great friend Julia's introduction scene :D

I'm astounded at the lengths that Alexia is going to in order to single-handedly ensure that this show never gets cancelled again. Arranging a sit-down meeting with your late ex-husband's gay lover is a whole new depth (or height!) for this 15-year-old franchise, which is thankfully still capable of astonishing us. And that's even before you consider that, judging by those pics, he was blatantly rent - and looking a lot more expensive than the two-dollar ho that Lenny had an 'emotional' affair with.

I'm also here for Marysol, who has clearly decided to approach this season as though she was the first homosexual male to be cast on the show. She's hitting all the right notes of camp, right down to knowing Miami's best cruising spots. I don't remember her being this entertaining first time around.

I'm not hugely enamoured with the new wives just yet. The most notable thing about each of them is currently their other halves: Guerdy's hot firemand husband, Nicole's partner looking like every second guy on my Scruff grid, and - naturally - Martina Navritalova.

I only watched the first season of Miami back in the day but I don’t remember Marysol and Alexia being this interesting. I remember them as the boring ones but they’re carrying the first 2 episodes.

Larsa is just so fucking unlikeable.

The others are ok so far but I like Julia.

Having watched episode 2 I’m starting to sense a bit of an issue in that Alexia/Marysol are so much more interesting to watch than the others (aside from the odd camp aside from Adriana) I’m tuning out a bit on the other wives scenes.

The similarities between Alexia and Teresa are uncanny, right down to the BLANK STUPID look on their faces :D Her sons are of course TRASH, but her storyline about meeting her dead husbands rent boy lover has potential to be one of the most iconic of ALL TIME!

lol also at Guerdy’s family who all clearly DESPISE HER! :D

I have a feeling we're not gonna see this sit-down between Alexia and Herman's former gay lover. Either he doesn't show up or he refuses to be on camera. And here I was all primed for one of the most ICONIC sit-downs in Housewives history :(

I thought EXACTLY the same - to the point whether I wondered whether Alexia sitting with a LARGE cocktail in a restaurant was just set up by production to have something to show on screen :D

Anyway, I'm loving this season. Alexia/Marysol/Adriana/Julia/Martina Navratilova and a lesser extent Guerdy are really serving Housewives at the peak of their powers. Alexia remains dumb as a box of rocks but has stepped it up so much, GIVE ME that teleonova fantasy :disco: The rest of them can go.

That dinner scene was a chaotic mess but I was absolutely here for Adrianna's star turn, Guerdy's sudden descent into the villain role and Martina's barely concealed contempt for everyone around her (her own wife included). Even Larsa showed up with her peanut gallery reaction shots.

If anyone has the inclination to wade through Reddit, could they kindly drop the Insta handle of Herman's former gay lover in here please? I attempted a bit of investigation myself yesterday, but started and finished with a mere (unsuccessful) Google search.
