Now that we've got The Real Housewives of Miami out of the way, we can move on to a glitzier zip code in the form of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which just wrapped up its season with big questions as to who will and won't return and who, if anyone, will replace the castoffs. While most of this is all pretty much out of our coverage range, rumor had it that former Miami resident Lisa Pliner, wife of shoe designer Donald, would very possibly be making her West Coast Housewives debut on RHOBH's next season.
The Pliners left Miami for LA LA Land last April. For those who watched Miami's second season, they'll recall a tiny cameo at Pliner's gigantic former Star Island estate, site of much feigned female drama unrelated to the hosts. Just because Pliner wasn't involved in on camera drama doesn't mean she wasn't involved off camera. So if the shoe fits, why not take your drama to Beverly Hills? After all, Adrienne Maloof is gone and "friends of the Housewives" Marisa Zanuck and Faye Resnick reportedly are, too. So there are a few slots, supposedly, into which Pliner, who was seen lunching at The Ivy with Housewives' lite Camille Grammer, may fit.
Bravo would neither confirm nor deny this rumor, but Pliner, who may end up on Miami's next installment when she attends Roy and Lea Black's big gala next weekend, quashed it immediately, saying that although she did meet with producers, it's a no go. "I'm not going to do it. I don't want to be targeted like these women. They'd tear me apart like vultures! Beverly Hills Housewives needs someone who's been in LA for a long time. I'm still new and no drama." We'll see how long it takes before she sells her soles to the Bravo devil.
