'Real Housewives of Miami' Star Marysol Patton Says Season 2's Cast Vibe Is 'Completely Different'
It certainly came as a surprise to many Bravo viewers when the cable channel announced in February that it was going forward with a second season of The Real Housewives of Miami after a long hiatus and Season 1’s mixed reviews.
Season 2 got a retooling under a new production company, Purveyors of Pop. Plus, returning castmembers socialite Lea Black, art curator Adriana de Moura and PR maven Marysol Patton will be joined by four newbies: Model Lisa Hochstein, model/actress Joanna Krupa, attorney Ana Quincoses and celebrity dentist Karent Sierra.
When Celebuzz recently asked returning castmember Patton whether she was surprised by who was asked to return and who wasn’t, she simply said with a giggle, “No, I was not.”
What else did Marysol tell us about the changes on Season 2?
“I think last season there was just a problem with maybe one person, maybe two people,” she revealed.
As it stands, Season 1 castmembers Larsa Pippen and Christy Rice aren’t returning. Alexia Echevarria, who has been helping with her son’s rehab from a car accident earlier this year, will make appearances on the season.
“There’s a lot of us and there’s a lot of personalities,” Patton said of the current castmembers’ vibe. “It’s completely different, totally different.”
What can fans look forward to this season? “There’s a lot of heartfelt [moments], a lot of funny [moments], drama,” Patton said.
The show’s unofficial housewife would of course be the PR pro’s self-professed “bruja” mother, Elsa Patton. She was a favorite on Season 1 for many viewers and it seems her daughter could be her biggest fan.
“I always want it to be about my mom,” she told us. “I was looking forward to all the things that I saw her do and she films a lot without me too. So I’m just looking forward to seeing that, because the producers are always, ‘God, she’s so funny.’”
The Real Housewives of Miami premieres Thursday at 9 PM on Bravo.
