It's been eight years since Miami's fiercest ladies have graced our television screens, and it looks like they're back and better than ever. A new trailer for the season, which just debuted this week, assures us that we're in for a "bumpy ride" this time around, but it also proves to be one of the most groundbreaking seasons in Real Housewives history, as an out member of the LGBTQ+ community is joining the franchise for the first time!
Our queer queen Julia Lemigova is wearing the badge proud! The former model can be seen in the trailer, introducing viewers to her wife (and tennis icon) Martina Navratilova.
Though Lemigova has been cast as the first out, queer housewife to join a Real Housewives franchise, she is not the first to identify as queer! Former Orange County housewife Braunwyn Wyndham-Burke publicly came out as a lesbian in December of last year, but unlike Lemigova, was not out during the beginning of her two-season run on the show.
Many familiar faces will be returning for season four of RHOM. Original cast members Larsa Pippen, Marysol Patton, Alexia Echevarria, Lisa Hochstein, and Adriana de Moura are all starring, alongside fresh faces Guerdy Abraira, Dr. Nicole Martin, and Lemigova. And from the looks of it, these veteran housewives are putting the newbies in their place!
"I grew up in this town," Patton says in the explosive trailer. "I know everyone, and you and your husband are talking a lot of sh*t."
In addition to the fiery new dynamic, season four promises lots of drama, tears, and, of course, Miami heat.
Pippen shares that she is "obsessed with her OnlyFans" while another housewife, who is not identified in the trailer, insinuates that she must be "showing more" if she's making so much money on the site.
Formerly a Bravo show, RHOM first aired in 2011. After three seasons, the network halted production, and in 2016, Bravo officially canceled the series. Recently, NBC announced that their streaming service Peacock would be reviving the show.
Catch season four of The Real Housewives of Miami streaming on Peacock starting December 16.
