Despite the dismal bore that is "The Real Housewives of D.C.," the franchise seems alive and well with the very strong Atlanta series returning Oct. 4 and the actually rich (and not just for cameras) Beverly Hills chicks arriving to Bravo just 10 days later. 

Now, reports are coming through that a Miami version is wrapped and ready to roll. The Miami Herald's sources confirmed the series is still a go and that they've already shot a promo for the "Real Housewives" franchise.

Apparently, the series wasn't originally shot as a "Real Housewives" show. Instead, the footage was shot for "Miami Social Club," a new reality series Bravo announced in March (totally different from the almost unwatchable series, "Miami Social," which aired last year on the network).

E!Online's sources say the show will premiere in Late-2010 / Early-2011 and delivered some names for the Miami cast: Scottie Pippen's wife, Larsa (pictured), and Miami Heat player Glen Rice's ex-wife, Christy. 

The lesser known cast members include art socialite Adriana Sidi, Venue Magazine editor Alexia Echeverria, PR gal Marysol Patton, charity planner Lea Black who's married to DA, Roy Black, and here's a twist -- South Beach drag queen Elaine Lancaster.

Are you ready for the oiled up, slightly style-challenged world of "The Real Housewives of Miami"?
