Andy Cohen wants to revive the Real Housewives of Miami and find the canceled franchise a new home.
Andy revealed that he’s been working to get NBC’s streaming app Peacock to pick up season 4 of RHOM.
“I have really been trying to get Peacock to pick up Miami,” he said. “I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this. I don’t know where we are with that. I have to say the fans of Miami are still very vocal, and so I’ve been an advocate for Peacock bringing back Miami.”
The WWHL host also revealed why he believes the franchise wasn’t as successful as other cities.
According to Andy, Elsa Patton’s declining health really took a toll on the franchise.
“I think Miami as it was on Bravo really suffered from Mama Elsa not being around in season 3,” Andy said. “She was very sick. I think she was a more important part of that show than people realized. The problem with the third season was that the ratings were declining as it went on, and they went down for the reunion, which is usually the opposite of what happens. I think that went into the decision to not pick it up.”
RHOM premiered in February 2011 and followed Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton, Larsa Pippen, and Cristy Rice.
Pippin, 46, and Rice, 49, left the show following season 1. Lisa Hochstein, Joanna Krupa, Ana Quincoces, and Karent Sierra joined the cast for seasons 2 and 3.
In 2019, AllAboutTRH spoke to Leah Black about the possibility of Bravo bringing back RHOM. Leah hinted that it might be best to leave fans hungry as she commented: “Sometimes it’s better to leave people wanting more…”
