Bravo Readies 'Real Housewives of Miami,' Adds Drag Queen to Cast

by PopEater Staff, posted Jan 26th 2011 3:50PM

Bravo is rolling out its newest 'Real Housewives' series with a twist: a drag queen!

PopEater's Rob Shuter says the wildly successful 'Housewives' franchise is taking on Miami, confirming the rampant rumors. But aside from the possibility of bumping into the odd 'Jersey Shore' straggler, the show is sure to shock some viewers by adding its first-ever self-styled drag queen to the cast.

Blonde bombshell Elaine Lancaster, whose male name is James Davis and who is close friends with Dennis Rodman, has joined the show as a part of the wider ensemble.

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': The Wives Have a Psychic for Dinner, Then Start ScreamingAin't no party like a 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' party. On the latest episode (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo), Camille Grammer invites the other women over for a dinner party. In addition, there are several non-housewife-based guests, including Allison DuBois, the psychic who inspired the TV show 'Medium.' Also attending the party -- Faye Resnick, ex-drug addict, ex-'Playboy' model, and friend of Nicole Brown Simpson, murdered wife of O.J. Simpson.

Wow. Even without the slightly odd dinner guests, having this many 'Housewives' in the same room at the same time can't possibly be a good idea. And this turns out to be the case, as the ladies get pretty tipsy and start screaming at one another.

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': Kim Goes on a Very Bad Blind Date (VIDEO)

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': Kim Goes on a Very Bad Blind DateYou should never set up a friend on a blind date. Actually, you should maybe never set up anyone on a blind date; the potential for things going badly is so high. But Lisa Vanderpump goes ahead and breaks this rule on the new 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo).

Lisa sets her pal Kim Richards up with a 50-ish-looking English dude named Martin. Their first date takes place during a party at a 60,000 square-foot mansion, so that's nice. Everything thereafter goes less well. A fellow party-goer asks if the pair are on a date -- Kim thinks they are, Martin says they aren't. Never a good sign. Strike one.

Next, there's a discussion of what Martin's ideal blind date would look like: The answer being tall and brunette, which more accurately describes Kim's sister Kyle, whom Martin has met. Strike two. Kim then confesses to Martin that she married her first blind date, as his face tenses up in terror. Strike three.

['The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' – 'I Would Never Say That']

On this week's episode of 'RHOBH,' Lisa schooled Cedric in the art of flower arranging, Kyle got hypnotized and Camille invited the ladies to New York for Kelsey's opening night in 'La Cage Aux Folles.'

A trip to the Empire State couldn't possibly compare to last week's battle of the birthday parties -- and it didn't. Still, the show gave us an awkward glimpse into the beginning of the end (or the end of the end) of the Grammer marriage as well as the promise of an ongoing lady war between Kyle and Camille.

A Puppy War on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' (VIDEO)

A Puppy War on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'"Diamonds are a girl's best friend," or so the saying goes. But this isn't the case on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' Especially not when the girl in question is only four years old.

On the new episode (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo), Taylor Armstrong throws a birthday party for her four-year-old daughter Kennedy. Nothing but the best will do, so Taylor blows $50,000 on a "tea party" themed gathering for Kennedy. That's fifty ... thousand dollars. In a sense, the party isn't really for Kennedy -- it's more so Taylor can dress up in front of her friends.

Kennedy is overwhelmed by the huge gathering and wants to hide upstairs -- a normal response for a little girl. Then, Taylor presents Kennedy with her birthday present: a diamond necklace. But since Kennedy is four, she doesn't really "get" the concept of diamonds, plus she's starting to cry.

On this week's episode of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' the ladies were off to the Palms Casino and Resort for another Maloof-sponsored getaway. On the agenda: basketball, booze and the musical stylings of Jay-Z.

When word reached Adrienne that her favorite rapper Jay-Z (or Beyonce's husband to Kyle) would be spittin' rhymes at her family's hotel, she smiled at the thought of a great excuse to escape hubby Paul's clutches.

"I'm going on a girl's weekend," she announced to Paul over the mansion's loudspeaker. But Paul is harder to get rid of than a bed bug infestation and soon the trip was reclassified as a couples retreat.

What You'll Need: As young as this new season is, Zolciak is already drawing weirded-out looks and damning criticism for her beloved wigs. Whether tousled or poufed out, you need a tired, long blond wig that's less Lady Godiva than waves-gone-wrong.

Teresa Giudice'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Teresa Giudice has been holding out on re-signing her contract with Bravo. But it's not because she's a demanding diva who's asking for too much money, according to PopEater's Rob Shuter.

Instead, a source told Shuter that Giudice just wants to get paid a similar amount to what castmates Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita make.

"I think people deserve to know the truth," a close friend of Giudice told Shuter exclusively. "Bravo pays Caroline and Jacqueline more than Teresa and she isn't holding out because she thinks she's bigger. She just wants to make the same."
