It was revealed earlier this year that The Real Housewives of Miami would return for a second season after a dismal first season. However, the cast needed a face-lift (no pun intended) and two wives got the boot — Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice. The rest of the women will return as official housewives with the exception of Alexia Echevarria, who will return in a limited role.
Although several women have been seen filming with Marysol Patton, Lea Black, and Adriana de Moura, no one has been officially named as a housewife — until now. Last night, Marysol Patton met up with The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson and Alexis Bellino at Patti Stanger’s birthday party at Koi Restaurant in Los Angeles — and she brought a friend, Ana Quincoces.
Bravo has declined to comment on who will join the original three housewives of Miami for season 2, but Vicki has not. She posted a photo of herself, Marysol, Alexis, and Ana on her Facebook page and announced, “2 of the Miami Housewives and Alexis and me!” Oops! I guess she didn’t know that Ana hadn’t yet been confirmed!
We’ve been dying to know who would replace Cristy and Larsa, so we’re thankful for Vicki’s slip-up! Ana is one of the people who had been seen filming in Miami, often with Marysol. She is an attorney, cookbook author, and the mother of two girls. Model and Dancing with the Stars alum Joanna Krupa, former Playboy model Lisa Hochstein, and dentist Dr. Karent Sierra have also been seen filming for the show but it is unknown what roles they will take on. As always, Bravo tests new talent and some get the boot while others get casted.
Marysol and Ana were also spotted shopping in Beverly Hills before attending last night’s event!
Real Housewives of Miami began filming in February so we are due for an official cast announcement sometime soon! Stay tuned!
