Okay, let me get one thing out of the way. Nicky Hilton was married for a hot mess of a minute. The pages of tabloid history got ruffled in my head but I caught my mistake later that night while I was lying in bed staring at the ceiling (I do this often) way before we went to print. Okay, you haters???
But speaking of that scene I loved, loved it because it was as close to real as we could possibly be. Neither Maria nor I were dressed up; my house wasn’t ‘maid clean’ and we were kicking it, Chinese food, wine, chocolate and cigarettes. The candles were lit and we were doing what we do: hang out, laugh, talk and support each other.
You must know that Maria and I have been laughing all week at our fave line from that scene. It was when she said to me that the Nicky and Paris Hilton inheritance wasn’t huge and I was like, “uh, it’s enough,” and then Maria says, “not for me!” all while stuffing her mouth with spinach dip. Genius.
So if there is anything you aren’t feeling this week, just look at them and say, “Not For Me!”
For me, this week was all about those great one-liners and their scenes. Here are my faves.
Hi Michael, I really enjoy the show and your a blast. Erm about Lina.....How does she know the baby even belongs to George anyways???? I'm not trying to be mean or anything but maybe George should get a paternity test.
Michael you are my favorite Miami Social character! I love you! Lina's white eyeliner is dreadful. Her long silver earings look like she won with a ceral box purchase. You keep up what you are doing becauase you are the most entertaining of the bunch.
"when Lina was having the Prego conversation with another Russian chick, which I’m thinking was her Madame boss from her secondary job" Hahaha, you are absolutely hilarious!! I come from Europe and we are so tired of these "Lina" psycho vulgar materialistic type of girls. I wouldn't be surprised if the room she stayed in on this yatch had a few red lights ;-) I just hope she will quit drinking if she decides to keep the baby...
You are indeed an entertaining writer, but really,
This: "You must know that Maria and I have been laughing all week at our fave line from that scene."
And this: "So if there is anything you aren’t feeling this week, just look at them and say, “Not For Me!”"
makes me think: is this a mockumentary? It does have a Christopher Guest vibe. I think you guys would be more successful if you position this show as a parody of reality TV. But please use witter dialoge. And better clothes.
You write an entire blog about funny one-liners and you don't include this?!?!?
Ariel: "the Macintosh guy, or whatever his name is... Bill Gates"
We know you don't like him, but come on....funny is funny.
Hi Michael, I sooooo look foward to your blog. You are so handsome, smart and funny. This show is the best!!
OMG Michael u crack me up! I just love love love you! You say what you feel and u don't care what others think. I loved when you and Maria where at your house kickin' back...woo hoo hot bod u have!!! lololol and ur friend George...he needs to really get rid of that crazy girl!
Michael I looooooooooove watching you on Miami social! When the promos for this show came on, I vowed not to watch another "reality" show about narcissistic well-to-do woeful characters-but you know what? I freaking love this show and it is mainly due to you. If only you were straight.
Michael, You are by far my favorite person on this show. Not only do you seem genuine but your also seem very down to earth unlike some of your cast mates *cough..Ariel. The chemistry you have with Maria makes it seem like you've been friends for ever. You have an amazing personality and I think you will definitely find love. Continue to do you and this show will shine.
MC, you are too funny for words. I look forward to Miami Social every Tuesday, and enjoy reading your blog even more. I laugh out loud at your dead-on commentary. You remind me of my friend Leroy Lopez in Las Vegas. (Miss him- I'm on the east coast now). I would have tears in my eyes laughing hysterically whenever he opened his mouth, as I do with you. You are a beautiful person (inside & out), and I wish you all the success in the world as you pursue your endeavors. (And someone special to share it all with!)
Michael, I like how you wrote "Madame"...when is someone going to just confirm what we all suspect?? Her job is "entertaining" clientale.... Look at her and how she "disappears"...poor George, he needs a big wake-up call. Is that even his child?
I love you Michael!!! You are Hilarious. Someone should definitely talk to Lina about her white eyeliner.
I'm really not getting the whole "Not for me" thing, but you, busting out laughing and almost spitting out your drink when George yelled to Sorah "YOU'RE crazy!!!", is my most favorite moment on this show so far. I kept backing up the DVR to watch you laugh like that - hilarious!
Michael, you are a hoot!!! if you and i met, we would be the best of pals. as a matter a fact you remind me of my friend Michael. he and i worked together and had a similar relationship to yours and Maria's. keep up with the laughter. i am totally with you regarding Ariel(spoiled p---k), Lina is an absolute lunatic. gives Russian girls a bad name. Maria should be pissed. definitely not digging Katrina's style. what's with all the bracelets and chachkas??? i think that her sister can give her a run for the money in the looks department. if she divorces that husband of hers, Big Mistake, Huge!!! anyway, until next week. love the show, love Miami. go there all the time. ciao from Brooklyn, NY
Another Great episode. OMG you are the guy that makes the show. We also love Hardy. We have our own "Miami Social" at my house when my friends all come over on Tuesday's to watch the show. LOVE IT. Hey I went to your daily sheet on Style Lab. Very cool. What is it? I need fashion tips....don't leave a brother out here.
Michael! You are the best thing that has happened to the Bravo channel since that one crazy ass housewive! I tune in every Tuesday just to watch the antics that are 'Miami Social' and let me tell you, you handle yourself with nothing but class and charm! Love it! Can't wait to see more!! Plus, you are dead on about that crazy russian former mail order bride, she's nuts!
Xoxo - Jenny
Michael - your blog is by far the most honest and entertaining. Keep calling it like it is. Speaking of which, I think you're right on about Lina's "Madame." Seriously, what kind of real estate agent is required to be on a yacht in St. Barth's for a week? A real estate "escort" perhaps...
Michael - You are too funny! You write everythign we are all thinking. I bet Lina's spawn is NOT George's!! Too many business clients if you know what I mean.
Cleverly entertaining. I like you and your thought process...You and Maria are my favs as far as telling it like it is!!!!
You rock Michael. Keep Ariel in his place and stop being so picky in a mate...the heart is what is important.
Wow Michael you're great , I know how dificult it's to find a boyfriend in Miami , I personaly live here ( Miami ) for almost 7 years and I only had a one boyfriend , Im just 26 lol , you're cute , funny and very honest , I like your blog. I like the show , I love Katrina she's a beautiful woman but Ariel mmm , Im sorry but he's so mean and stup....Yes he,s hot with his mouth close but the way he talks kill everthing around him .I saw the show the other day and he say !!! Im 4 pounds overweight !!! he dont know anything about that ,,, so Ariel think before speak ... Michael like i say before you're awesome .... Nicolas ....
Loved, Loved, Loved your quick comeback to Lina.... "I guess we'll be seeing more of Jasmine..." Ha Ha! You can't joke or reason with crazy - - as you learned from watching the beast flash her fangs after your little joke. She is not well.
hahaha, I know why it is you sometimes don't like Ariel and you sometimes do. HE IS BI! sometimes he likes girls sometimes he likes men. after the comments he had with the blonde girl, sorry, I just started watching the show, he shows he could really have sex with a woman. you guys are not the same! I love you and I hope you do find love, you are the best person on the show because you are so honest and say what everyone else is thinking, keep it up, you will have a long life of happiness, you deserve it!
Michael... you got me LMAF...Lina talking to her Madame boss... you clearly read the viewers mind..Can you imagine Lina’e emotional status now that’s she pregnant.... continue to post I love reading your blogs.
i just love you .........
you are so funny . and i love your little poodle .
i have a little chihuahua named teekee.
You are hysterical. I just love the laid back attitude and no BS from you. Everyone needs a friend like you.
I don't comment on these things, blogs, but after reading yours,I just want to say: You're great! I can't wait to read more!
Michael, you are the most amazing character on the show. You make it so authentic with your character and wit. I loved your non verbal cues when the "old queen" was trying to turn your birthday celebration into a bar mitzvah. True to form you were right on it. I hope you find an awesome, sexy, intelligent, and ideal partner that makes you happy. When you started on the, "he should be masculine" I was thinking he sounds to much like Ariel. I have found in my experience that hyper-masculine gay men often have a hard time relating to intuitive, empathetic men like yourself. Believe me when I say the man you will meet is going to be right for you, irrespective if he is butch or not. You totally rock and I absolutely love your support system around you. You make the show and you are my main Bitch!
Your my favorite!!! your too funny you keep the show moving.. the lina scene in george apartment..too funny. Can't wait to see more.
Hi Michael, I can't believe you are single!!!! You are so sexy, sweet, funny and nice! A great catch for anyone!!!!! If I were only so lucky to meet you! WOOF!
LOL, on quote about "prego russian conversation" with Lina's Madame Boss! My thought's exactly, she was letting her know to take her off the "List" to show Condo's in St. Barth's via New York, right?
I have to say Michael you are the funniest and down to earth gay on TV in a very long time. you are almost aspiring to younger gay kids in some way, you are like any toher gay guy that for real is looking for love.
Hey Michael. Love you on the show. I live in South florida. Where did you get your birthday outfit in South Beach? What is name of that store?
Keep on Keepin on!!
Hey Michael, I like your character (which is you) a lot. I see these moments of a real person shining through (honesty), which is such a rare occurance for a gay character, reality of fiction, on television. You should be proud of the way you carried yourself my friend. You've done the last community of americans lacking civil rights a service. Ciao, Dave Brophy NYC
I luv your show cause for me the show doesn't start until you make an appearance. luv ya just the way you R Mike!
Michael, Keep up the good work in calling Ariel on his prissy queen b.s. and tormenting him at all times. He deserves it and you are great at it! If it weren't for you balancing him, I wouldn't be able to watch the show.
I LOVE YOU! I read this late...your breakdown of interacting w/Lina had me laughing until I cried, especially the part about the sound of glass shattering after she slammed the door. I didn't get you at 1st on the show...I LOVE your blog. You should be guest blogging RHATL. Love you, love you, love you, & PLEASE get Trixia some help in how she talks to Hardy. On the up side, he must really love her if that is how she communicates w/him. I don't mean to be insensitive, but w/the knives etc. featuring so prominently, does anyone know the origin of the scar on Lina's face? Just curious.
