‘Real Housewives of Miami’ Episode 1 Review
The Real Housewives of Miami premiered last night on BRAVO.
Last night I watched the first episode of The Real Housewives of Miami and my overall impression is eh, guess we will have to see what plays out. Am I dying to see the next episode? Not so much. But will I watch it? Yes.
Let’s talk about the ladies, first off is Adriana DeMoura-Sidi. She is the kind of person who if I was invited to a dinner party and then found out she was also invited, would seriously reconsider going. She obviously loves attention and wants all eyes on her always. But, seeing as Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice are almost forgettable, Adriana will provide entertainment on The Real Housewives of Miami, even if it makes me cringe to watch it.
Lea Black seems out of place, entertaining like she is living in her home state of Texas, which feels awkward in Miami. We see her shopping with Natalie Cole and hugging Dennis Rodman at a charity event, imagine Barbara Bush in those same situations. That’s what it feels like, a little off somehow. Alexia Echevarria, our ‘Cuban Barbie’ IS good looking but has raised a Latin, Male version of Paris Hilton in her 17 year old son Peter. She admits he will need her forever and can’t even decide what to eat without asking her first. If she had any true friends they would have told her to not share that tidbit with the rest of America.
Rounding out the group is Marysol Patton, a divorced PR firm owner. When she claimed to be “anti plastic surgery” I almost fell off my couch, until I saw her mother. I don’t know if they genetically look like they have been worked over or they actually got matching face lifts and lip implants. Elsa, is as I said earlier, an older version of Marysol, a woman with eyebrows almost to her hairline who speaks huskily in a thick Spanish accent. Think drag queen psychic, only without a caftan and crystal ball. Elsa is slightly less scary than Christy’s psychic, who we met for only a quick moment. She (and I use this term loosely) was a large sweaty Liza Minnelli in sunglasses.
Basically it was your typical first episode with the women talking about their background, current careers, marital status and their homes. This one was a bit of a sleeper, hopefully the season will get more exciting and we will see the “feisty” housewives we were promised. The Real Housewives of Miami Episode 2 airs Tuesday, 10p/9c on Bravo.
