Fans of the Housewives franchise know that sometimes the most interesting characters are not the featured Housewives themselves but assorted associates and family members. In a previous post I featured PR maven Marysol Patton discussing the show with The Miami Herald and the subject of her self-proclaimed psychic mother came up. Here’s what Marysol had to say about her mid-70’s but still kickin’ mom Elsa:
“Yeah my mom is a big part of it. She’s really quite funny, she’s such a character that everyone wants to be friends with her and everywhere I go everyone is like, ‘How’s your mother?’ before they even ask how I am. She’s just really funny.”
In the preview video provided by Bravo they show a brief discussion in which Elsa defines herself as a witch. In the clip she’s holding a big ol’ Miami sized glass of wine which as it now turns out might have been some creative foreshadowing. Here’s a cap from that vid of Elsa and her wine along with a promo shot via Bravo:
The mug shots seen above and below were from an arrest that occurred on October 9th, 2010 in Miami. The arrest information via WhosArrested.com states that she was cited for a DUI / Unlawful Breath Alcohol Level and No Valid Drivers License. From what I’ve seen of the spicy lady so far I don’t think I would have wanted to be the one on patrol that night responsible for bringing Miss Elsa in!
If you love you some Miss Elsa like I do I encourage you to check out our post on her and Marysol’s road trip from Miami to New York City to appear on Watch What Happens Live here.
UPDATE - It turns out that Marysol is a lot like her mother! CLICK HERE to see her mug shot stemming from an arrest for suspected drunken driving in January of 2010!
Here are two full images of both mug shots for Elsa Carreras Patton:
