Paulina Rubio might have to prepare a petty tagline soon. The Mexican pop icon is in talks to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Miami, according to a Page Six report from today (Jan. 13).

The Real Housewives of Miami, also referred to as RHOM, aired on Bravo for three seasons from 2011 to 2013. It was the seventh installment in The Real Housewives franchise that started with Orange County in 2006. According to Page Six, Bravo is “revisiting” RHOM and is in “preliminary conversations for [the show’s] potential return.”

The report divulges that along with including some cast members from RHOM‘s original run, Bravo is looking at Rubio and Orianne Cevey, the ex-wife of Phil Collins, as potential new additions to the show. Paulina was born in Mexico City, but she currently lives in Miami with her two children.

Rubio is no stranger to reality television. In 2013, she was a judge on the American spinoff of The X Factor alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland. The year prior, she was a judge on La Voz…México alongside Jenni Rivera, Miguel Bosé and Beto Cuevas. To let cameras inside her home to film her family life and to get to know Miami’s other affluent “housewives” would be a different kind of reality beast.

If Rubio is cast in a revival of RHOM, it will be the first time that a major Latin pop star is included on one of the American franchises. Former Housewives of Beverly Hills star Joyce Giraud created Estrella TV’s Rica, Famosa, Latina that was inspired by the Bravo series. Notable cast members included Jenni’s sister, Rosie Rivera, and Latina meme queen Niurka Marcos.

As far as music, in a recent Instagram story, Rubio promised “more new music soon.” She’s nominated at this year’s Premio Lo Nuestro for Best Cumbia Song for her comeback hit “Tú y Yo” with Raymix.
