Some neither real nor housewives, these local "ladies" are in line for their fifteen minutes of something or other


Move over Kelly, Bethenny, Danielle and the ladies of Orange County and make room for the alleged Miami version of Bravo's Real Housewives brand of bitching, backstabbing, bullsh*tting, and shameless self promotion. If we believe our sources, however, Bravo may want to change the name of their show because, from what we hear, these alleged Housewives may include but not be limited to: drag queen Elaine Lancaster; party promoter/single mom Ingrid Casares; well heeled shoe designer, philanthropist and wife of shoe-man Donald, Lisa Pliner; philanthropist and wife of retired Miami Heat player Alonzo, Tracy Mourning; realtor and wife of infectious disease doctor Albert, Lourdes Alatriste; never married but engaged to (biz) partner Nick D'Annunzio for many, many years, publicist Tara Solomon; and philanthropist and wife of famous defense attorney Roy, Lea Black. We also hear some of the other candidates include:wife of Opium Group mogul Eric, Stacy Milon; wife of party promoter Tommy, Michelle Pooch; and wife of Market America mogul JR, Loren Ridinger. Hmmm, talk about typecasting, which, by the way, took place at the Angler's Boutique Resort early this month under a temporary shroud of secrecy.  In full disclosure, we happen to know (and admire) several of these people very well and hope the show does not turn them into hideous cartoons. It's bad enough Miami, the city, is about to become as overexposed as a porn star's genitalia (no) thanks to Bravo's other poorly titled offering, Miami Social, which airs in July. The reality is that some of these potential cast members are neither women nor wives, never mind housewives, but because Valley of the Dolls was already taken, we guess Bravo will just have to go with the tried and not so true title of The Real Housewives of Miami, huh?
