Who Is The Real Housewives of Miami’s Lea Black?

The higher the hair the closer to God, y'all! Lea Black might rule the streets of Miami, but this blonde bombshell hails from Texas, and she's all kinds of country strong. Leah is an OG member of The Real Housewives of Miami, and she's the founder of uber-successful Lea Cosmetics! Even more impressive? She recently created Lea Black Beauty, where she sells makeup products, jewelry, glitter-encrusted handbags, and everything else that will help fans be just as flawless as she is.

Of course, when Lea's not bringing home major bacon, she housewifes-it-up with her husband of 19 years, world-famous criminal defense attorney Roy Black, and their 12-year-old son RJ.

Lea might live the fab life, but she's well aware that others aren't as fortunate as she is. In fact, this community leader might just be the most charitable housewife in Miami! Not only is Lea politically active (she earned major money for Barack Obama during his 2008 campaign), she's raised millions of dollars for troubled teens with The Blacks' Annual Gala! But this lady's skills don't stop there. Lea dances, sings (she's no Countess Luann, but she tries) blogs for The Huffington Post, and just wrote a "fictional" mystery novel about Miami society (aka her RHM enemies) called Lea's Little Black Book. Um, yes please!

Make sure to follow Lea on Twitter @LeaBlackMiami, and catch her on The Real Housewives of Miami's season premiere, August 12 at 9pm ET on Bravo.
