Real Housewives of Miami: A Hot Chick and a Drag Queen

News is surfacing about the women to be featured on The Real Housewives of Miami, the next installment in the Real Housewives franchise.

Initially, this show wasn't going to be part of the Real Housewives franchise - Bravo was going to air it under the title of Miami Social Club. Despite the fact that The Real Housewives of DC was kind of a bust, Bravo's success with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (and the OC, NY, NJ and Atlanta) must have given Bravo the idea that yet another Housewives franchise would be a good idea.

This time, we'll follow women from sunny Miami, Florida. We'll start off with sexy and successful Alexia Eccheverria. She's the editor for Venue magazine, which is a Spanish publication about fun and nightlife. From her picture, Alexia looks sexy and self-assured, so she's sure to be a firestarter on the Miami version of the Housewives franchise.

Next up we have Elaine Lancaster, and she's not exactly a housewife by nature. She's one by choice, actually. Elaine Lancaster is a drag queen. This is a new element that we haven't seen in previous Real Housewives series, and it's sure to be interesting. My guess, by looking at her picture, if that she's going to be the over the top character this season. Hopefully she'll fare better than past over the top Bravo stars like Danielle Staub and Michaele Salahi!

The show will also feature socialite Adriana Sidi, public relations expert Marysol Patton, and charity planner Lea Black.

Two of the cast members are divorcees of sports stars, which almost makes me want to call this Housewives series "The Real Ex-Housewives of Miami. This, along with the inclusion of a drag queen, may be why Bravo initially planned to stay away from making this a part of the Real Housewives franchise. In any case, these divorcees include Larsa, ex-wife of Scottie Pippen and and Christy, ex-wife of Glen Rice.
