“Real Housewives of Miami” Star Marysol Patton Shares Her Favorite Local Restaurants




Bravo TV struck gold in 2005 when it premiered a reality show about women who shop, bicker, and drink.

Real Housewives of Orange County was a hit, and the franchise blossomed into a sensation with 11 different cities represented, including Miami.

Real Housewives of Miami premiered in 2011 and ran for three seasons with a cast of local socialites and celebrity wives, plus a smattering of businesswomen.

Now the Miami cast has returned, this time on Peacock. Marysol Patton, Alexia Echevarria, Larsa Pippen, Lisa Hochstein, Guerdy Abraira, Nicole Martin, Julia Lemigova, and Adriana de Moura have returned to shop, bicker, and drink their way through Miami once again. (Patton’s mother, Elsa, who became a fan favorite during the show’s initial run for her unabashed fabulousness, died in 2019.)

Marysol Patton tells New Times the current season filmed in Miami this past summer, complete with COVID precautions. “We were very careful, so filming took a little longer than usual,” she shares.

Patton also revealed some of the restaurants where the episodes were shot, for the benefit of those who care to dine like a Real Housewife.

“We filmed a couple of scenes at Seaspice,” says Patton. Her go-to dish is a crudo, she says, adding, “I’m not a big eater. I’m more of a drinker.”

Another dinner scene took place at Juvia, where, she reports, “the food was fantastic, but the drinks were even better.”

Another Housewives favorite is Kiki on the River. “Kiki is always great, Patton says, adding that practically every dish is a winner. “I kind of indulge at Kiki,” she confesses. “I love the grilled shrimp, the octopus, and the hummus.”

Patton also revealed her favorite cocktail, a drink that’s her own invention, named by her husband, Steve McNamara. Patton, who is still considered a newlywed — she and McNamara married in Tulum in April 2021, according to Page Six — calls the drink “The Situation.” A deconstructed cocktail, it consists of a glass of Tito’s or Grey Goose vodka with ice, lemon, and pineapple juice on the side. “I like to mix it myself,” she says. “When I order it, it sometimes turns into a complicated situation, so my husband called it ‘The Situation.'”

Ice, Patton notes, isn’t something she likes in her drinks: “It’s not cost-effective or buzz-effective.”

A Coconut Grove resident, Patton says she tends to stay close to home when dining off-screen, naming as favorites Cipriani, Mr. C, and Fiola. (She calls Fiola “a hidden gem.”)

The Real Housewife housewife also recently tried Major Food Group’s Sadelle’s. “It was quite the scene,” she says of the New York-to-Coconut Grove transplant, which specializes in brunch.

If you want to catch up with Patton and the rest of the Real Housewives of Miami, you’ll find them streaming on Peacock

Armed Robbery In Medley Leads Investigators To Human Trafficking Arrests




MEDLEY (CBSMiami) – An armed robbery in Medley leads investigators to make two arrests in human trafficking.

Officers responded shortly after 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

The victims said the two men knocked on their door, and apparently had on masks.  

“And when the victims went to open the door, they were armed with firearms and robbed the victims,” Ponce said.  

According to State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundel’s office, one of the victims, one of those victims was at the location awaiting a pre-arranged prostitution encounter.  

“Our officers were able to identify specific things during their conversation that they were able to pry at which point the victim came forward and advised that yes she was in fact a victim of human trafficking.”

Through the investigation, the two other people were arrested. 40-year-old Raul Antonio Jimenez-Rodriguez and 30-year-old Grettel Caceres-Grego are facing charges that include, human trafficking and directing another to a place of prostitution.

“Broward was one of the places that she was trafficked in, as well as Tampa,” Roger Dehart said.

This case hits close to Roger Dehart, a Broward Sheriff’s Office Court Bailiff.

He has not only witnessed hearings on human trafficking, but he says people he’s known to have been people affected. 

“Violence towards her kids at the time were 8 and 11 so they had pictures of her kids, they knew what school they went to they did their research,” Dehart explained. 

Too often people don’t know it is happening, that’s why Dehart is speaking out, and in the past has walked from Fort Lauderdale to Washington DC to raise awareness. It took 51 days he told CBS 4.  

“I would encourage people to educate themselves.”  

The US Department of State has a list of potential indicators: 

  • Living with employer
  • Poor living conditions
  • Multiple people in cramped space
  • Inability to speak to individual alone
  • Answers appear to be scripted and rehearsed
  • Employer is holding identity documents
  • Signs of physical abuse
  • Submissive or fearful
  • Unpaid or paid very little
  • Under 18 and in prostitution

“You know this isn’t just about Miami-Dade County or Florida as a whole this is an issue that’s going on throughout the nation, throughout the world, and we need the public’s assistance to put a stop to it,” Ponce said.

M. Night Shyamalan’s creepy ‘Servant’ returns to Apple TV+ for Season 3




M. Night Shyamalan’s “Servant” is a series full of twists and turns. Season 3 of the show returned Friday night. We talk with M and the cast about what creepy cult craziness viewers can expect.

Lauren Ambrose (as Dorothy Turner): “What is going on?”

You’re about to find out what’s going on in the new season of M. Night Shyamalan’s “Servant.”

The Apple TV+ show follows Dorothy and Sean turner and their nanny Leanne, who used to be in a cult.

In Season 3, the Turners attempt to live a normal life with their son Jericho.

But that’s not possible, thanks to Leanne and her craziness.

Nell Tiger Free: “This is a very new Leanne. There’s a lot of paranoia that comes with it.”

Lauren Ambrose: “They’re fighting over the the soul and the love of this child. It’s pretty intense.”

Just like prior seasons, M. asks up-and-coming directors to join his vision.

M. Night Shyamalan: “I guess, in some little mini way, this is like a little mini-studio, “Servant,” where I get to see something anywhere in the world at a film festival, if something is sent to me, or I get to see a movie, and if I feel that kind of deep connection to it, I’ll call up the filmmaker, talk with him or her. And if I feel like, ‘Wow, they’re in a great place,’ I say, ‘Hey, will you come to Philly and direct one episode?’”

Now, with so much going on in the show, the cast members have questions from time to time.

Toby Kebbell: “I had quite a lot this season ’cause, you know, we had the break, because the pandemic hit us in Season 2, and then we started off doing Season 3 pretty quickly after that. And I was like, ‘So wait, so I don’t – I’m suddenly going to church every day? What is happening?’”

Well, hopefully, all will be answered when “Servant’s” fourth and final season airs in the future.

Rupert Grint: “Where we’re heading, I have no idea, for Season 4, is kind of anything can happen, and there’s something quite exciting about that.”
