Two Miami Housewives downgraded to ‘recurring’ roles

 

Don’t expect to see much of Ana Quincoces in season 3 of Real Housewives of Miami. In the high-drama trailer for the Bravo series, starting up again Aug. 12, the lawyer doesn’t even appear in one scene.

Turns out the divorced mother of two is only going to be a recurring character, as Alexia Echevarria was last season when she was dealing with her son’s recuperation. Now, as seen in the promo pic along with Lea Black, Lisa Hochstein, Joanna Krupa and Adrienne De Moura, the Venue editor is back as a full-blown housewife.

PR big Marysol Patton is not in the promo photograph, either, though she appeared in the trailer. That leaves just five major players to battle it out on the small screen. According to a well-placed source, there were just too many cast members.

On her Facebook page, Quincoces thanked disappointed fans for their concern: “I wish I could give you guys the explanation you deserve. Unfortunately, it would not be appropriate to do so right now,” she posted. “As the season progresses some things will become very clear.”

At least there is other stuff going on. Quincoces appeared last week on ABC’s The Chew to promote her cookbook, Sabor. She mixed up some South Floridian favorites with Daphne Oz and Michael Symon, like Cuban fried chicken with mojo, as well as a “Whammy” rum cocktail that Quincoces drinks, she said, while on vacation in Sanibel.

And no, contrary to the comment Oz made about her engagement, Quincoces’ boyfriend, fellow lawyer Marcos Jimenez, hasn’t put a ring on it yet. “Although I am ‘in a relationship’ with a great guy, there are no wedding plans or anything of the sort,” Quincoces said on FB.

The late show

Hot off the big win and crazy parade, Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade will make his debut as a 2013 NBA Champion on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night on ABC.

Details are emerging about what the Heat players ate during a private blowout Sunday evening at Hyde at AmericanAirlines Arena. Safe to say, like their victory, it was sweet. Laura Candeau, of Divine Delicacies, says nobody was too worried about calories when they devoured a five-tiered, bedazzled cake that fed 350. Simplicity was in the details. “We decided to keep it white hot with red accents and just hand paint ‘Congratulations Back-To-Back Champions,’” said Candeau, who started working on the red velvet meets vanilla rum indulgence about three weeks ago. “We believed they would win and had faith in our team.”

Surprise, surprise!

Channing Tatum fans got the shock of their lives when the actor unexpectedly breezed in to a Monday night screening at Regal South Beach. His latest movie, White House Down, has him playing a hero who saves the president ( Jamie Foxx). The two guys made the rounds, even salsa-ing live on Univision’s Despierta America. Audience members were gifted with T-shirts seen on the somewhat risque, star-cameo-heavy video, first seen on Jimmy Kimmel’s show, Channing All Over Your Tatum. Red ones read “Channing;” black ones “Go Jamie Foxx Yourself.”

Look for an upcoming Q&A with the actors on the People page.
