We learned that Real Housewives of Miami season three would be missing three full-time cast members, which included Marysol Patton being moved to a recurring role of “friend of the Housewives”, but why was she the one to step down?
A source tells AllAboutTRH exclusively that Bravo needed less Housewives for RHOM’s third season, in an attempt to engage viewers with less storylines to follow! Karent was not asked back, and Marysol was the one who was “demoted” initially.
Our source shares that it was a hard decision for producers to make, and that it was not even about Marysol directly. “Mama Elsa became very sick and had serious health problems requiring surgery. Elsa and Marysol make a great TV dynamic duo and without Elsa able to film, producers decided to keep her [Marysol], but in a recurring role,” our source tells us.
“Marysol loves doing the show, and she is happy to still be a part of the show in any capacity. They all get paid the same anyway! You will still get to see her interact with Elsa, as well as try to get back into dating,” adds the source.
I love Marysol but I think last season was too hard for her with Lea attempting to trash her business reputation. I think this will be great for Marysol in the long run! Plus, Mama Elsa’s health is more important than pleasing us viewers. 😛
Will you miss Marysol being shown as a full-time cast member this season?
