As we've said so many times, Bravo is not filming The Real Housewives of Miami. Finally putting that rumor to rest is the announcement of the voyeuristic network's new series, Miami Social Club (working title), starring, among others, Lea Black (wife of famed attorney Roy) and, in this scene at the Original Penguin store over the weekend, Black's right hand man Jason Clarke and drag diva Elaine Lancaster with a cameo by Dennis Rodman. Motley Social Club's more like it. Casting for this started way back in June of last year with all sorts of names in bold stepping up for their chance at having every tabloid dig for skeletons in the deep, dark recesses of their closets the big time. As for the rest of the guinea pigs publicity hounds castmembers (the network tells us because it's "just a pick up," there are no official cast announcements or details on air dates as of yet), according to our reality show rat they are: public relations professional/erstwhile socialite Marysol Patton, Christy Rice (ex wife of former Miami Heat player Glen Rice), Alexia Echeverria (executive editor of Venue Magazine), socialite and gallery owner Adriana Sidi (also known as Adriana de Moura), and Larsa Pippen (wife of NBA's Scottie). The official word on the series is as follows: "This new docu-series follows Miami's social elite--a glamorous circle where money, hard work, status and beauty rule. Get a fascinating fly-on-the-wall look at life on the sizzling hot Miami scene. MC Filmworks is producing this series for Bravo with Michael McNamara, Sheri Maroukfkhani and Jack Tarantino as executive producers." Our sources also tell us this show has absolutely nothing to do with that other failed experiment show with the words Miami and social in it. To nobody's surprise, that one has not been renewed. Let's hope they get it right with this one.
Here's Kim Kardashian doing what she does best according to her musings on Twitter: pimpin' around at the Sony Ericsson. And here's Alicia Keys doing something similar backstage at her AAA show Saturday, only she'd never be caught dead pimpin'. She's too classy for that. Instead, here she is, just, uh, hangin' with Serena Williams sister and her gigantic ball.

After the dust settled on a rumor that no one but us on slow news day, her kids, and maybe Andy Cohen and NeNe Leakes seemed to care about, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's drag queen Doppelganger Kim Zolciak has admitted to Life & Style that she's bisexual. Sort of like the anorexia and bulimia of tabloid confessions of years past, the bisexual card has been played by several bona fide celebs and at the end of the day no one really cares which way these celebs swing. But Zolciak is no celebrity and some say that's why she's coming out, no pun intended, with this latest bit of TMI. According to Zolciak, she and former Miami-based DJ Tracy Young had sparks the first time they met, when the two were in the studio together remixing the aural sludge that was Tardy For the Party, a project that arose via Twitter, of all places. Zolciak had split with the elusive Big Poppa for the umpteenth time and, according to her, Young just ended a 3-year-relationship. "Tracy made the first move. Our kiss was passionate and exciting," Zolciak says in an interview she was probably paid to do. Our source isn't really buying it. "She sounds honest enough to me [in her confession], but I believe it is just another ploy to keep the 15 minutes alive." Perhaps we can see for ourselves as Young is in Miami for Winter Music Conference and Zolciak, never tardy for a publicity party, is said to arrive in Miami sometime tomorrow.
