Lea Black slams Peacock’s Real Housewives of Miami reboot and her former costars who returned for the drama.
In a new interview with David Yontef’s Behind the Velvet Rope, Leah reveals that if she had returned for the RHOM reboot the show would have been completely different aka boring AF? Just kidding.
According to Lea, she was in talks to return to RHOM but when producers explained the format of the show would be the same as the first three seasons she decided to take herself out of the running.
“I had several conversations with the casting girl and I had a couple of conversations with the producer, but I knew after the first conversation with the producers, that it, in my opinion, was going to be more of the same. And it probably wasn’t going to work out for me. That’s really the truth,” she explained.
“I think people are so hungry for storylines. People bringing up anything,” she added referring to Alexia’s storyline of her gay ex-husband.
As for Larsa Pippen’s return, “Larsa has a very see and be seen superficial kind of life, but she does have a big following and she does know kind of how to work it. I’ve never seen her be the person to really put her raw feelings and self out there.”
The former Housewife didn’t stop there. She also claimed that Adriana, Alexia & Marysol tried for years to get RHOM back on the air because they have no lives outside the show.
Okay, gotta admit that while Lea is fabulous I wasn’t a fan of her on RHOM. I actually am not a fan of the first three seasons of RHOM at all. I found the franchise boring and contrived. However, season 4 has completely won me over. It feels more authentic and more like the early seasons of Housewives.
The re-boot will air on NBC’s Peacock app either late 2021 or early 2022.
RHOM is currently streaming on NBC’s Peacock app.
