The South Florida weather proved too much for Rita Ora. The British singer-model is accustomed to hot lights in her profession, but midday sunshine on Monday caused her to feel faint and be carted off to Mount Sinai Medical Center, TMZ first reported.
The gossip site got in touch with ER doc David Farcy, who saw after Rob Kardashian’s ex-girlfriend and said she had been since discharged and feeling much better after suffering a bout of heat exhaustion.
According to widespread reports, Ora, 22, fell ill while posing on the sand in front of the Soho Beach House, shooting an ad campaign for Material Girl, the affordable teen fashion line from Madonna and daughter Lola Leon. Take a tip from locals, Rita: Hydrate!
Lea Black isn’t proud of her castmates’ behavior on the Real Housewives of Miami, part I or II. She took to her Bravo TV blog, saying she didn’t think the ladies are representing our city well. “Shame on them,” Black wrote, without naming a “housewife” in particular.
But anyone who watched the showdown has an idea:
Adriana De Moura made a remark about Romain Zago’s “limp” private parts, and Lisa Hochstein has been in hot water over referring to the Latinas on the show as a “Cuban gang.”
“[S]ome of the X-rated, nasty comments and name calling were outright disgusting and embarrassing. Beneath what is acceptable for this franchise and for public viewing, in my opinion.”
Somewhere, Andy Cohen (who recently stepped down as Bravo executive to focus on his talk show and other projects), is smiling.
By her lonesome
Katy Perry enjoyed a little down time in town over the weekend. The Roar singer was photographed relaxing on Miami Beach with pals, covering up her sunburn-prone skin with a tunic, Ray-Bans and a “headkerchief.” No sign of BF John Mayer. Hopefully, absence makes the heart grow fonder or at the very least inspire a ditty or two.

Well, that didn’t take long. Jennifer Gray, who signed off the WTVJ-NBC 6 weather desk barely two weeks ago, has popped up again -- this time on CNN, coming aboard as a meteorologist Wednesday. Gray will deliver CNN’s weather on weekends and do reporting the rest of the week.
