Former Real Housewives of Miami star Ana Quincoces will be spared jail in the wake of her March arrest in Key Largo.
Quincoces, 50, used ex-husband Robert Rodriguez as her attorney in a case involving an ex-boyfriend, and he got her a deal she couldn’t refuse last week.
Quincoces was allowed into the Monroe County pre-trial intervention program — designed to keep low-level, first-time offenders out of court and jail.
If she keeps her nose clean for six months and completes 15 hours of community service, the case will be dismissed, according to a state attorney staffer.

The former Bravo reality star was charged with knowingly driving with a suspended license when she was pulled over by Monroe County sheriff’s deputies early March 22.
The incident was the culmination of a bizarre night that started when the cookbook author and lawyer decided to drive from Miami to see an ex-boyfriend who had already moved on to someone new.
The ex called 911 to report a burglary and discovered Quincoces in his living room, according to the recording of the call.
Deputies who responded didn’t arrest Quincoces but made it clear she wasn’t to drive.
They arrested her later at the wheel of her car.
Rodriguez didn’t return a call and email for comment.
FLO RIDA OFF THE HOOK
A paternity and child support lawsuit filed against rapper Flo Rida in a Miami-Dade County court was dismissed last month after a battle that started in 2013 when Orlando model Georgette Williams was pregnant.
A paternity test last year showed there was a 99.9999 percent chance the singer of Right Round and Wild Ones, aka Tramar Dillard, is the boy’s father.
Since then, the singer and Williams battled over child support and hospital bills for the birth of the child.
It got to the point where Flo convinced Williams to get rid of her lawyer, and the two hammered out an agreement that led to the dismissal.
The terms are confidential.
Ray Rafool, Williams’ attorney, declined to comment.
NFL players’ agent Drew Rosenhaus may have acted in haste in January when he filed for divorce hours after his wife called Miami Beach police on him.
Neither Rosenhaus, 48, who says he negotiated $2 billion worth of NFL contracts, nor wife Lisa Thomson, a well-known Miami Beach Realtor and former candidate on The Amazing Race, have filed any documents in the case since Rosenhaus cited “irreconcilable differences” in his Jan. 20 petition for divorce.
The lovebirds’ attorneys aren’t talking, and Thomson declined to comment.
If you believe Thomson’s Twitter account, things between the two are hunky-dory. On May 8, Thomson tweeted that she was watching her “amazing husband” on CNN.
In January, Rosenhaus kicked her out of his Indian Creek house after cops showed up. Thomson had called 911 during an argument over her partying while he stayed home to watch football. Police made no arrest.
A year and a half after 1970s heartthrob David Cassidy listed his beachfront house in Fort Lauderdale for sale, the troubled singer of I Think I Love You has become so antsy about unloading the property that he’s planning an auction this summer.
Cassidy recently lowered the price for the second time in a year to $3.2 million. And despite Cassidy’s willingness to entertain any offer, the deed still bears his name.
