Real Housewives of Miami Storyline for Cristy Rice
Cristy Rice joined “The Real Housewives of Miami” in season 1 in 2011. As a member of the main cast, she showed off her sassy personality and gained a lot of fans.
On her first season, she immediately became a household name among Bravo viewers. Shortly after the season aired, Andy Cohen as one of the executive producers of the show, described the women as “great characters.”
Basically, Cristy Rice is a newly- single mother during the first season of the Real Housewives franchise. She just divorced from NBA superstar Glen Rice, but she doesn’t let that hold her back. Cristy managed her news phase of life being a single mother of three, handling her own clothing store, and living out loud while enjoying the nightlife.
On her fourth season, Cristy was perplexed as to why she was delivered an invoice from Lea for being a party crasher at the Lea Black’s annual gala. No wonder there’s a continuing drama on her fifth season. Adriana De Moura started to put Cristy on the spot about a rumor she heard regarding Lea Black’s gala. Lea shared what’s on her mind that adds more fuel to the fire, until Larsa’s luncheon is ruined.
In 2020, Cristy revealed in an interview that a few cast members worked closely with the producers to pre-plan some scenes and build storylines. She doesn’t think that RHOM star Larsa Pippen did the same thing as the others.
Rice and Pippen were friends and Rice had just returned to the Miami area after her divorce from husband, NBA player Glen Rice. Cristy insisted that she and Larsa just went on with the show. However, Black and De Moura were working behind the scenes with producers.
Obviously, Cristy thought that Lea Black and Adriana De Moura tried to make her and Larsa as the mean girls. She further explained that Adriana’s purpose was just to break her by being mean and spiteful. She said there were two specific moments that were planned to break her. Besides, Cristy also stated that Larsa was painted to be kind of like snobby.
At present, the loyal fans of Cristy Rice are hoping for her return to the Real Housewives” reality TV show reboot. Obviously, they missed her sassy personality and perseverance.
