EXCLUSIVE"Real Housewives of Miami" star Joanna Krupa believes her show is the red-headed step child to its West Coast counterparts -- so she wants in on the California action ... but Bravo's not biting.
Sources close to production tell us, the 34-year-old model has been making a play to switch from "Real Housewives of Miami" to either "Beverly Hills" or "Orange County" ... because she thinks the Florida show is a sinking ship. We're told the tone of some internal discussions is it may not return.
So Joanna has been hanging out in L.A., partying this past weekend with Kyle Richards and Joyce Giraud from Bev Hills and Gretchen Rossi from O.C.
But our Bravo sources say it's not gonna happen ... the network just isn't in the business of switching their "Housewives" from one show to another ... and it won't make an exception for Krupa ... no matter how much of an entitled tantrum she throws.
Then again, entitled sells ... which is why she wants Beverly Hills.
