It’s four v. two! Know before you watch — find out which ‘RHOM’ stars are BFFs and which two just don’t fit in!
It’s cat-fight time! The gals of the all-new The Real Housewives of Miami have already taken sides — and it’s a battle of four against two. “Alexia Echevarria, Lea Black, Adriana DeMoura-Sidi and Marysol Patton are very close,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice are also very close.”
“You can see who is friends. Marysol, Alexia and Lea have known each other for a long time,” the source explains. “Lea and Adriana have [been friends] for a while too. This will prevail on the show.”
That leaves Cristy and Larsa on the outside, but at least they have the basketball-wives bond in common. Cristy is the ex-wife of former NBA star Glen Rice and Larsa is married to retired superstar Scottie Pippen.
So now that we know who is on whose side, who is the leader of the pack? “Lea is the most vocal,” notes the source. “She’s a very strong woman. ”
On the other hand, “Marysol is the mother of the group,” the source says. “She’s not hated or feared by the other women. They even show her getting nervous for Cristy on the first episode.”
The division among the group was apparent at the premiere party at Eden Roc in Miami on Feb. 21. With Larsa missing from the shindig, Cristy was left on her own to make it through the night and ended up spending most of her time with her kids, a partygoer observed.
And even though they may not be all smiles behind the scenes, the group as a whole — minus Larsa — made it a point to pose and smile together for the cameras on the red carpet.
They even got a surprise. “They all met Andy Cohen [Bravo’s Housewives head honcho] for the first time,” explained the insider.
But despite this whole enterprise being new and exciting for the women, the majority of are in for a reality check. Fame hasn’t slapped most of them in the face. Yet.
