Nearly eight years after the finale episode of season three, which featured the wedding of Joanna Krupa and her now ex-husband, Romain Zago, aired on Bravo, Alexia Echevarria, Lisa Hochstein, and Larsa Pippen are returning to their full-time positions on the show for a new set of episodes on Peacock.
While Marysol Patton and Adriana de Moura are also returning to the series, they will be starring in part-time or “friend” positions as the full-time cast is rounded out with Guerdy Abraira, Julia Lemigova, and Dr. Nicole Martin.
Kiki Barth will also be a featured “friend” of season four, which will begin airing sometime in December.
While viewers won’t be meeting the season four cast of RHOM until December, many fans on social media are especially excited for the first LGBTQ+ housewife, Julia, the wife of famed tennis player Martina Navratilova.
Last November, following calls for the return of RHOM, Andy Cohen, an executive producer of the show, appeared on an episode of the Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino podcast, where he confirmed he was trying to bring the series to Peacock.
“I have really been trying to get Peacock to pick up Miami,” Andy said. “I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this. I don’t know where we are with that [but] I have to say, the fans of Miami are still very vocal, and so I have been an advocate for Peacock bringing back Miami.”
He also explained why the show was canceled after season three, saying that ratings on the show dropped amid the absence of Marysol’s mother, Elsa Patton, aka Mama Elsa, who had gotten sick and later died.
“I think she was a more important part of that show than people realized,” he noted.
Then, earlier this year, after RHOM‘s return was officially confirmed, Andy said he was confident about bringing the show to Peacock because of its “big fanbase.”
“I see what people are asking for on Twitter, and that’s one of those shows that was a constant,” he revealed.
