This week, I found out that a few pilots or episodes are being filmed in Naples, FL, Palm Beach, FL & Miami, FL. Along with news for a Houston, Chicago & Boston series which is casting. Is this housewife overload? Most likely not all the suggested series will make it to Bravo superstardom or even any network. I wish them all well in getting a network to air their shows. Personally I’m hoping for a Miami cast or at least a FL housewife edition to make up for that embarassing, ridiculous mess ‘Miami Social’. Here are the cast listings so far.
Cast for “The Elite Housewives of Naples”:
Jada Anastasia, Julie Coleman, Hanna Roppo and Patty Egan
Rumored cast for Miami:
Lea Black (known, along with her Attorney husband Roy, for their lavish yearly charity galas), Marysol Patton (a PR professional), Christy Rice (Heat player Glen Rice’s ex), Alexia Echeverria (executive editor Venue Magazine), Adriana Sidi (art world socialist), Larsa Pippen (Scottie Pippin’s wife), and Elayne Lancaster, who is a drag queen.
Rumored cast for Houston:
Lucinda Loya, Leslie Tyler Fink, founder of RSVPSocial.com, Patti Murphy, Sharon Gaille, Crystal Wall wife of rapper Paul Wall, Daphne Angelique and Jamie Kelley wife of weight-loss guru Shaun Kelley.
Rumored cast for Chicago:
Socialite, blogger and former Playboy Playmate, Candace Jordan; Shelley MacArthur Farley an actress, professional singer and former model who’s married to Fruit of the Loom chairman Bill Farley; Shauna Montgomery & Whitney Lasky a former soap opera and sitcom actress have auditioned for the Real Housewives of Chicago. Production: Towers Productions
Also rumored to have auditioned:
Philanthropist Sugar Rautbord, who runs her own public relations company. Elizabeth Berger, 41, a divorced mother of two who runs the public relations firm Elizabeth Berger Associates.
Rumored cast for Palm Beach:
Tiffany Cloutier, the young wife of business and major Democratic Party supporter George Cloutier. Lori Stoll, the widow of former concert promoter Jon Stoll. Sara Haryman, is the best friend of sitcom actor Charlie Sheen’s mother-in-law, Moira Fiore.
As of now, the producers are casting two groups of well-heeled, well-married middle-aged women. The above group is from Palm Beach, and the group below is from the Palm Beach Gardens-Jupiter area.
The second group:
Phyllis Tobias, the widow of former CNBC analyst Seth Tobias. A psychic accused Phyllis of killing Seth when he turned up dead in his pool in Jupiter. She was never charged and the death was deemed accidental.
Lanell Fagan, a shoe designer whose divorce from former SunFest President Greg Fagan made news. In 2007, cops responded to the couple’s Palm Beach Gardens home after she allegedly slugged Greg with a picture frame. The two are officially divorced now.
Dr. Susan Christiansen, psychologist and wife of high-profile divorce lawyer John Christiansen. The couple is from North Palm Beach.
Lisa Emalfarb, wife of a Jupiter chemist who invented a lucrative enzyme process to make jeans look like they were stone-washed.
Janet Steinger, a Palm Beach Gardens resident who was Cloutier’s maid-of-honor when Tiffany was hitched to George Cloutier on New Year’s Eve 2008.
