‘Hot Listings Miami’ in TV limbo

Hot Listings Miami, a reality show that showcases the Magic City’s high-end real estate biz through Miami’s Katrina Campins, was nowhere to be found on the tube at its usual 9 p.m. slot Tuesday.

“Actually, it's a blessing in disguise,” Campins told Gossip Extra.

Here’s why:

The show’s eight-episode first season has been airing on the NBC Universal-owned Style network, a tiny station known for the popular Giuliana & Bill.

But the airing of Listings episode 7, scheduled for Tuesday night, and next week’s grand finale are in limbo after NBC rebranded the female-heavy Style into a men's network, Esquire, starting Monday.

The timing couldn’t have been worse: Listings, also starring Campins’ snarky ex-husband Ben Moss as they seek digs for Miami Dolphins players, quickly became Style’s surprise hit.

A second season is already in the works.

With no one to air it all!

NBC Universal, however, is involved with reality TV havens E!, Bravo and Oxygen, and Campins says she’s hoping the series will end up on one of them.

“We found out last week that Style disappeared, and everybody was shocked,” said Campins, who’s also Listings’ executive producer. “It's such as shame. Episodes 7 and 8 are my favorite.

“However, many people couldn’t find the show on Style even when it was on. If we move to much bigger E! or Bravo, it’ll be better for us and the audience.”

Sporting goods

One jock’s staying; the other’s going.

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is seriously downsizing — but he remains committed to South Florida.

Rodriguez, 38, who’s appealing a 211-game suspension for his use of performance enhancing drugs, just bought a new Zen condo high above Miami Beach.

Thing is: It’s worth “only” $2.1 million and smallish by MLB standards — particularly compared to the 21,700-square-foot house on North Bay Road that ARod unloaded for $30 million in May.

Records show Rodriguez opted for an 11th-floor, 1,725-square-footer with three bedrooms at 5875 Collins Ave., aka Mei Condominiums.

The Mei was built in 2008, according to the builder’s brochures, to allow residents to live in “harmony” and enjoy “mind relaxation.”

And that’s something ARod could use: He faces a career-ending ban from baseball for his connection with the Miami clinic Biogenesis.

On Florida’s Left Coast, meanwhile, snowbirding Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird has put his winter home in Naples on the market.

The three-time NBA champ, 56, wants $4.8 million for a waterfront mansion he bought in the fancy Park Shore section 15 years ago for $875,000, according to Collier County records.

It boasts 9,530 square feet of space, a 500-gallon saltwater fish tank, a 10-seat home theater and, of course, a regulation basketball hoop in the driveway of the four-car garage.

TRUMP ON TV

Donald Trump Jr., son of Doral owner Donald Trump, is recruiting staff for a business TV show he’s starting in Boca Raton.

The series, called 21st Century Business, is set to premiere in January.

And producers are running job ads all over the place to entice sales reps and other hopefuls to apply.

The jobs have their perks. Those include, according to the ads, hanging out with Trump Jr. — and unlimited coffee.
