The Real Housewives of Miami (abbreviated RHOM) is an American reality television series that premiered on Bravo on February 22, 2011, then revived on Peacock on December 16, 2021. Developed as the seventh installment of The Real Housewives franchise, it focuses on the personal and professional lives of several women living in Miami, Florida. Its first run consists of three seasons, with its second run consisting of two seasons and counting.
The recent fifth-season cast consists of Guerdy Abraira, Lisa Hochstein, Julia Lemigova, Nicole Martin, Alexia Nepola and Larsa Pippen, with Kiki Barth, Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton serving as friends of the housewives. Previously featured cast members include original housewives Lea Black and Cristy Rice; and subsequent housewives Joanna Krupa, Ana Quincoces and Karent Sierra.
On March 10, 2010, Bravo announced the series Miami Social Club had been picked up as a restructuring of the 2009 series, Miami Social. After filming completed, Bravo decided to make it an installment of the network's The Real Housewives franchise. The first season premiered on February 22, 2011, and starred Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton, Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice. Pippen and Rice left after the first season.
Lisa Hochstein, Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, and Ana Quincoces were added to the cast for the second season, which premiered on September 13, 2012. Echevarria was demoted to a recurring role in order to spend more time to care for her son, injured in a 2011 car accident.
The third season debuted on August 12, 2013, with Echevarria returning as a full-time housewife, while Patton and Quincoces were demoted to recurring capacity. Sierra appeared as a guest. By September 2016, Bravo stated that The Real Housewives of Miami had "ended", making the franchise the second to end after The Real Housewives of D.C. was cancelled in 2010 after one season.
In November 2020, The Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen said that there were talks to return the show for a fourth season on the streaming service Peacock. In February 2021, the series was confirmed to be making a return. Shortly after the announcement, previous cast members Joanna Krupa and Lea Black both stated that they were not interested in appearing on the new season.
In October 2021, Peacock confirmed season 4 would premiere in December 2021 with returning housewives Lisa Hochstein, Alexia Nepola (formerly Echevarria) and Larsa Pippen being joined by Guerdy Abraira, Julia Lemigova and Nicole Martin. It was announced that Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton would return as friends of the housewives with Kiki Barth also joining as a friend. The season aired on Bravo in April 2022.
In October 2022, Peacock confirmed season five would premiere in December 2022, with the entire season four cast returning, and Lea Black making a guest appearance.
