The real deal on alleged Miami "housewives" show


Here we go again. We've been inundated with emails asking us what the deal is with a recent casting for a show based on the wildly successful Bravo franchise of the Real Housewives. We squashed the rumor of a supposed Real Housewives of Miami show back in June after a similar casting that allegedly involved some high profile Miami women. Anyway, we once again spoke with our pals at Bravo who tell us that while "production companies are always getting in contact with us about new cities for the franchise," it seems that these castings are based entirely on spec and there has been absolutely no commitment made by the network to green-lighting a Real Housewives of Miami. After their previous foray into our fair city, we can understand their hesitation. So far, at least on TV, Miami, for better or for worse, is no Jersey Shore.
