Here we go again. Deja vu, or is it? Sort of. And as much as it sounds like one, it's definitely not a bad April Fool's joke. On the eve of the upfronts, when television networks announce their upcoming shows to bribe lure in advertisers, a source thisclose to Bravo tells us that yes, yes, The Real Housewives of Miami is coming back for a third season as anyone with access to Twitter already knew. Also pretty common knowledge thanks to the incessant retweeting abilities of the ladies involved, is that the new season has already started filming around town. Sign those release forms, camera-hogs!
Finally, the official news that has also been out there on the internets is that Karent Sierra, the dentist and subject of one of this writer's posts-turned-season 2's-most-absurd-plotline (or lack thereof), is officially outsky and a Housewife no more. Some would say she's the luckiest, smartest one yet. Others not so much. Sierra, meanwhile, has managed to parlay her unfortunate involvement in season 2 with a few appearances on the CBS medical talk show The Doctors. "I am basically bicoastal the past couple of months, filming The Doctors in LA," Sierra told us. "My focus is now on that and casting for some films. I'm very excited. Looking forward to an exciting future without unnecessary drama."
Extending their 15 minutes of overexposure for round three is: Lea Black, Ana Quincoces, Joanna Krupa, Lisa Hochstein, Adriana Marq--er, de Moura, Marysol Patton, and Alexia Echevarria. If we see drag queen Elaine Lancaster it will be in the same capacity in which we saw her before. Of course, as filming devolves--er, evolves, cast members' roles will do the same. Some will play a lesser role, others will stoop the lowest clamor to be the breakout star. You know how it goes. Maybe they can look to Big Ang, who is filming the next season of her successful VH1 show right here in Miami, for some secrets to huge reality success.
As for why the network would bring back the poorly rated show, well, our well placed source clicked mute for that one. As they say, if you don't have anything nice to say . . . Let's just hope the third season defies the old Housewives' tale that says bad things come in threes.
