Marysol Patton developed “ElsaRingtones” for sale at $2.99:
Marysol Patton, who on and off the air plays straight man to her mother and is president of Miami public relations firm The Patton Group, recently developed not only the ringtones, but also a line of Cuban coffee in honor of her mother. Havana Elsa features on the package a black-and-white image of Elsa from long ago, back before a single scalpel had touched her lovely face. (The ringtones and coffee are available at http://www.HavanaElsa.com.)
Elsa… on her plastic surgery:
“My doctor destroyed my face. For example, I never asked him to touch my chin. But he did anyway.’’ Did she consider suing?
“I don’t believe in that. The doctor said he would fix it again, for only $7,000. I said, ‘You want to charge me $7,000 for what you did to me?’ But I really don’t have a complex about how I look. When I needed to be pretty and young, I was pretty and young. Now I’m almost 80 and I don’t need to be that pretty. I wish I looked a little better. But I accept that what happened, happened.” NOTE: Elsa’s “before” photos and getting reconstructive plastic surgery… SH April 1, 2012.
MissElaine sets the record straight re the red carpet rejection:
What exactly did Marysol do to inspire the on- and off-air venom she has received from Lea, who is one of the stars of Housewives, and Lancaster, a recurring guest who, in her oversized stilettos, towers above all the other designer label-obsessed, social-climbing wives?
According to Lancaster, Marysol didn’t let her strut her stuff on the red carpet outside the Blacks’ charity gala one year.
“I came down from my room at the Fontainebleau and was about to step on the red carpet to go into the event when Marysol and her assistant stopped me because the governor was on his way,” says Lancaster, who, out of drag, goes by the name James Davis. “I was cool with Charlie Crist going on the red carpet before me. But then she started letting a lot of other people go in front of me. I’m not stupid. She was trying to exert her limited power. I don’t have to hear the rattle to know when I’m dealing with a poisonous snake.”
So Lancaster ultimately had to ride a bare floor to get into the ballroom. So what? We’re not talking about the Oscars .“It was that she disrespected me. I don’t need her to get on a red carpet. My life is a red carpet. I get paid to show up at events. That’s my job,” Lancaster says.
Ratings and dinner parties:
The show’s ratings have been reportedly slipping this season, but if there’s one episode to tune into, it will be the one featuring a dinner party at the home of Miami Beach developer and notorious bad boy Thomas Kramer. Bravo sources say the lineup has not been finalized yet, so there’s no firm date for Kramer’s appearance.
In a teaser, we see Kramer screaming at Elsa, with whom he goes way back.
“You dare to talk like this to my friends and my neighbors? Sit down and shut up or leave!” he bellows.
“Lea was just being very loud and I told her to please shut up. Well, I didn’t say ‘shut up.’ That’s when he screamed at me that I am nobody to tell his guests how to behave. I stand up slowly — his veins are popping out of his neck like an animal — and he screams, ‘Why don’t you go back to Cuba?’ And I responded, ‘For the same reason that you don’t go back to Germany!’ That’s when Mr. Brown [Black] says, ‘Very good answer, Elsa.’ ”

NOTE: The RHOM ratings are down for TWO reasons… 1) Bravo throwing Miami into the mix while NJ and NY were still going strong… 2) Too many NEW Housewives! AND… WHY is Elsa on the show? Both Marysol and Elsa shoulda gotten da Bravo boot!
