Ana Quincoces will be adding some serious sizzle to The Real Housewives of Miami…
The Cuban-American chef—voted Miami’s “hottest chef” by Eater magazine last year—will be joining the cast of Bravo’s South Florida-based reality series for its upcoming second season, which offers “an inside look into the aspirational lives of seven women as they juggle family, work, and a spicy social scene in the hottest city in the world.”
Quincoces, who happens to be a practicing lawyer in her spare time, self-published her first cookbook, Cuban Chicks Can Cook, as a tribute to her mother and a legacy for her daughters. After the book quickly sold out in local bookstores, she was contacted by a large publishing house to write her second cookbook, Sabor! A Passion for Cuban Cuisine.
In addition to bringing Quincoces, The Real Housewives of Miami will welcome newcomers Lisa Hochstein, supermodel Joanna Krupa and celebrity dentist Karent Sierra to the show.
Meanwhile, first season scene-stealers Lea Black, Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton will be back as series regulars, while Alexia Echevarria will return in a recurring role.
Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Miami is set to premiere on Thursday, September 13 at 10:00 pm with a 75-minute episode.
