EXCLUSIVE 'Real Housewives of Miami' Photos: Before They Were Reality Stars

'The Real Housewives of Miami' are dripping in diamonds and living the fabulous life on TV each week, but their lives weren't always so glamorous.
The Real Housewives of Miami
'Life & Style' has shared some exclusive photos of the ladies with us, all taken before they were reality TV stars.

MarysolNewlywed Marysol is sporting a massive rock on her ring finger these days -- seriously, did you see that thing? Wow.

But before she became a high-profile PR gal, she worked for a hospital. "That's where I began my career," she told 'L&S.'

We're not sure what that means exactly, although we'll venture to say she wasn't the night janitor. Still, she's gone from the fluorescent-lights to the limelight.

Not bad at all ...

Alexia And before magazine editor Alexia was labeled the Cuban Barbie, she was "so happy and fulfilled" to be a stay-at-home mom.

Yes, we know, that's the definition of "housewife," but this show doesn't follow that title too closely anymore. These days it's more about the drama than actually being married or having children.

Cool mom Alexia has been seen giving in to her now-grown kids fairly often, and she admits she acts more like an older sister than a disciplinarian to her two sons from a previous marriage.

CristyCan't imagine Cristy doing anything but crashing fundraisers? (Will we ever really know if she actually paid Lea or not?)

Well, she sported a sweet smile and some awesomely '80s bangs at her high school homecoming, and told 'L&S' she used to be a teacher in her early 20s. "I love children," the single mom of three said.

Yep, even though she's a single working woman again, teaching is a far cry from her posh life and (now-defunct) marriage to an NBA star.
