But, not to worry, Real Housewives of Miami fans, Lea Black knows how to make a few headlines for her Bravo franchise.
She has penned an editorial for The Huffington Post in which she sets out to prove that she's "politically active." After detailing her experience in the field, Black goes on to trash Sarah Palin, offering advice "from one reality star to another: Save the "domestic" drama for your reality show!"
"Sarah Palin is the sideshow in the circus that everyone wants to watch, but that most people don't take seriously," Black told E! News about the basis for her article. "The Republican Party has become a circus and she's the sideshow act that everyone likes to laugh at, not with."In the piece, Black calls out Mike Huckabee for repeatedly saying Barack Obama was raised in Kenya; wonders why John Boehner simply takes the President "at his word" when it comes to his religion; and writes:
"There's nothing more anti-American than trying to turn our country against its leader by re-voicing myths that have long since been debunked."
True? False? Readers can debate the merits of Black's arguments. But if he really wants to raise the ratings for her series, Black may need to flip a few tables on air.
