Rumors are swirling that Bravo is not renewing The Real Housewives of Miami for Season 4, but Alexia Echevarria is here to quash those rumors and assure everyone that the ladies of Miami will live to fight another day.

Alexia spoke to E! Online and confirmed that while ratings tanked for the Florida-based reality show, the ladies are talking to production about filming for an all-new season. “There will definitely be a Season 4 for Miami. I have spoken to producers and they are currently working on dates for taping, since we usually begin taping this time of year we were told taping is being pushed back a little, Alexia dished. “The producers spoke to all of us and told us all the same thing.”

While Bravo has yet to release the confirmation about Season 4, Alexia is already speaking out against one of her fellow Housewives — Joanna Krupa, who has recently expressed a desire to move to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

"Honestly, at this point I really feel very offended by her careless comments towards Miami and her fellow castmates. She has no loyalty and I do not believe she belongs here or in any of the franchises," Alexia said. "She doesn't belong in Miami because she doesn't really live here and she doesn't belong in BH for obvious reasons." Yikes, tell ‘em, girl.

But Joanna isn’t sitting back and taking this shade lightly, saying, “Alexia needs to fact check before trying to put words in my mouth that I have never once said. I love Miami — it’s one of my homes. I appreciate the show as it saved my relationship and led to a beautiful, fairytale wedding. That’s why I love Bravo and the show’s producers: they make it happen.”

Woof! If these ladies end up on opposing sides on this season of RHOM, it’s going to be World War III down there!
