'Real Housewives of Miami' cast revealed

Bravo is turning up the heat with the latest addition to the "Real Housewives" franchise. The network has headed to the Sunshine State for "The Real Housewives of Miami."

"The newest series of the Housewives franchise adds a unique flavor as the show goes inside this cultural hot spot," the network said in a statement. "'The Real Housewives of Miami' follows six of the most connected and influential women of Miami as they live their lives to the fullest in this sunny city where the party never stops."

Among the lucky ladies who are sure to keep things lively when the show premieres on February 22:

Lea Black: Married to top criminal defense attorney Roy Black, the Texas native is a community leader devoted to raising her 9-year-old son as well as raising funds for her charity.

Marysol Patton: A divorcee, Patton owns public relations firm the Patton Group. When not throwing parties for her A-list clients, she's hanging with her mom Elsa, a "seer" who is respected for her spiritual guidance.

Adriana DeMoura-Sidi: Following a traumatic divorce, the art curator and full-time mom is already engaged again — but the Brazilian bombshell's fiery and flirty ways keep everyone buzzing.

Alexia Echevarria: Nicknamed the “Cuban Barbie," Echevarria is the executive editor of Venue magazine, which spotlights the hottest fashions and Latin celebrities. A mom of two, she admits that she sometimes acts as more of an older sister than a disciplinarian to her two sons.

Cristy Rice: Recently divorced from NBA superstar Glen Rice, Cristy is living the single life to the fullest. When not out on the town or dealing with relationship drama, she's running her own clothing store and raising three kids.

Larsa Pippen: The wife of NBA star Scottie Pippen, Bravo describes Larsa as "a snarky Lebanese beauty" who boasts that she is successful at everything she does, including playing mom to four young kids. She keeps plenty busy turning her boys into star athletes, spoiling her one-year-old daughter and firing nannies, but always manages to spend a little time on herself.

In other "Housewives" news, Bravo has announced that the premiere date for "The Real Housewives of New York" has been pushed back and it will now air in the spring.

    @Smarty; the operative word is, ITALIAN! You are ITALIAN! That's a far cry from CAUCASIAN or WHITE! Count your blessings! Most of you already have what you need! Just thank your HIGHER POWER! White girls are busy trying to TAN, plump-up lips, breasts, and hips; and black girls are busy trying to BLEACH, reduce hips, lips, breasts! They both BUY hair! Maybe one day SOON, the HUMAN RACE will finally stop being so VAIN; start accepting and appreciating WHO they are and WHOSE they really are, before too late!

    I'm a black woman and I am far from angry. However, the truth is all of the Real Housewives series is a bunch of bs and whats sad is people are really arguing and watching this crap. First of all not even half of the people are married, maybe 1 or 2, so it's misleading right there. secondly, come on you mean to tell me that you cant find a white, black, asian, indian, latina woman in all these cities to make a more balanced show race wise. i dont give a hell about the surgeries, we ALL change something ladies, race does not play a part in that. The show is for enetertainment so stop wasting energy arguing over something you arent willing to change. maybe instead of watching this nonsense and making the ratings soar, you should write Bravo and call them on their bs.

    To the black women who said this show is only white woman are completely wrong. Everyone on this cast other the 2 people (Lea Black and Larsa Pippen) are latina's (not white). And why does it matter?

    I was thinking the same thing...The only people where everyone but one was married was in NJ...The majority of them just have kids and divorced from their rich exhusbands they're living off of...@Lakisha...you are just ignorant to make a statement like that, so come out of your little bubble you think is reality and open your eyes to the real world.

    I don't understand why this show is called "housewives" when 1/2 the participants are divorced or unmarried with kids...they aren't WIVES, just money hungry attention seekers.

    Why does RACISM always have to come up on these comments. This show is about wealthy housewives who happen to be white. There are wealthy black women in this country as well as white. WOMEN who can afford it no matter their race are getting plastic surgery, I just wish we could move beyond the racist tone in this country. As for the comment about black women being jealous of white women I personally find that comment IGNORANT every day I see beautiful BLACK women and not so beautiful BLACK women. I see the same for WHITE women. Every WHITE women I see is not beautiful far from it. I certainly can appreciate beauty in any race but WHITE WOMEN DO NOT HAVE THE PATENT ON BEAUTY!

    I guess it shouldn't that all of this money is wasted on these goofy 'Real Housewives' shows, because I can just not watch. But, it does bother me that all of this money is wasted on producing these ridiculous shows.

    In our household there are two go-to channels, HG for my man and Bravo for me. Andy Cohen (hey fellow St. Louisan) is a programming genius and a sweetie pie with an eye for drama. The only thing better than his series' are the season ending cast reunions. The "Real Housewives" are far from real and that is what makes them so dynamic and entertaining.

    Yes, I will be watching ! I love all the Real Housewives series. As far as the comment someone made about "white women wanting to look black" I am a 47 year old Italian with my own full lips,very curly hair (that I do not straighten) - all natural –some of us embrace who we are & what we look like. Talyor on The RH of Beverly Hills did look goofy with her full fake lips –oh,well !

    Black women get nose jobs, fake boobs, etc done on themselves also. The basketball wives, Atlanta HW Ne Ne had work done plus many many other black women so stop spreading your hate and try to make it look like white people are the only ones that get work done and that they want to look black. Get a whole of yourself because you come off looking like a real brainless fool.

    Lol.. always a bitter black woman playing the race card. Its a shame because most of the black men are so easy and cool but omg the women are loud, mad and just plain nasty. Black men don't even want to date his kind because they want to know why the women of they color are so angry.

    Oh no, they have ATL houswives on there with African-American women, who also have had surgeries and 'harmone-plumped' parts on them, so it's not just the white women that spend money on plastic surgery. African-American women are just as vain.

    Still, no African-American smart and wealthy women part of the cast – These chicks looked like harmone-plumped monsters – NO ONE wants to associated with 'natural' beauty – the full lips, that african american women have naturally – white women spend $$$$$$$$$$ to make themselves look like us –
    They even get booty injections for butt lift – Let the ooooozing session begin!
    NONE of these women have brains – but TRASH sells – Poor things, their husbands will be trading them in for a newer model soon – Plumpalicious goons make me ill ~ Oh, and when you cry during filming, be sure to take some eye droplets, for effect – Since your mouths and faces are pulled back like alligators...

      Wow another angry black women who is resentful of white women and they beauty and success. Just because WW get boob jobs and lip injections does not mean they want to be black. When black women get contact lenses does that mean they want to be white? No! it simply means they want to change their eye color. You should stop living your life validating yourself by imagining that other women of the world want to look like you. Trust me–it isn't true.

      The WHOLE cast of RH of Atlanta was PRETTY MUCH black. So don't even start with that. There are only TWO white women, and the rest are latinas. This is the first show I think to mention latinas so quit complaining.

      Larsa Pippen is Lebanese, so maybe there is only one "white" woman on this show, Lea Black. That's if you don't consider the one on the far left white (I guess you don't, since she Is Cuban).
