Ana Quincoces is faring quite nicely after parting ways from Real Housewives of Miami — she’s a “friend” this season. She’s spreading the word about her culinary abilities. At 8 p.m. Thursday, the lawyer-turned-TV personality will be signing copies of her cookbook Sabor! A Passion for Cuban Cuisine (Running Press) at Books & Books in Coral Gables. The first 50 attendees get a bottle of her gluten-free, low-cal Skinny Latina Million Dollar Marinade, which is also sold at Fresh Market.

From 6-8 p.m. the same night, over in Miami Beach, Quincoces’ archenemy Lea Black will also be showing off her wares: her line of beauty products and handbags at W South Beach Hotel’s Pure Therapy Spa, 2201 Collins Ave. Want to go or gawk? You get 10 percent off the goods, plus “cockies,” that’s cocktails, in RHOM-speak. RSVP: or 305-438-9200.

Yo! truTV raps!

You may love or despise the cast of South Beach Tow, but they really, really are not going to go away. The cast members of the fictionalized reality show centering on the shenanigans at Tremont Towing in Miami Beach have put out a music video to the song Tow Yo! featuring Chad Ochocinco. The crew dances, raps and attempts to entertain in the video, which ends with the infamous football player’s yellow Lamborghini getting carted off. Chad’s reportedly a fan of the truTV show so maybe gets a pass when parked illegally? Watch it at if there are approximately three minutes of your life you don’t want back.

Walking tall

NBA All Star Chris Bosh may be up for sainthood soon. The new dad’s Foundation, Team Tomorrow Inc. joined forces with America’s Moms for Soldiers on Saturday at AmericanAirlines Arena to bring a little bit of love to troops for Veterans Day. The packages contained Christmas stockings, holiday goodies, hygiene items and more. The Miami Heat star, whose wife Adrienne gave birth to baby girl Dylan on Monday, also included a letter of thanks.

I dream of Ricky

Ricky Martin loves being a dad to his twin boys and has written a book for them as well as other kidlets. The pop superstar will be at Books & Books Coral Gables 6 p.m. Nov. 15 to sign copies of the English and Spanish versions of Santiago the Dreamer in Land Among the Stars (Celebra). Martin’s picture-heavy tale was inspired by his own childhood and pursuing his dreams to become a singer.
