The “Real Housewives” Franchise Moves to A New City- Where Are They Headed?
“The Real Housewives” franchise has spawned some of the best reality celebs, feuds, fashions and everything in between. It started with a casting call in Orange County when Vicki Gunvalson and Jeana Keough were cast after Gunvalson’s then-teenage son Michael saw an ad. Ten seasons later, Vicki is still on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” and has spent the past four seasons defending her controversial relationship with Brooks Ayers and on/off friendship with Tamra Judge, who joined the show in season three. From there, we were introduced to NeNe Leakes and wig-wearing Kim Zolciak on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the Manzo’s and the Giudice families on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” the Countess and Bethenny Frankel on “The Real Housewives of New York City” and Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Each city had their own drama as we watched Teresa Giudice go to prison (she will be released next month then husband Joe will head in for a longer sentence). We saw a three-part check in with her from prison but it was her infamous table flip that made housewives history. Several spin-offs were spawned from the franchise as well such as “Don’t Be Tardy…” starring Kim Zolciak, “Manzo’d With Children” starring Caroline Manzo, “Vanderpump Rules” and a whole Bethenny franchise. So, where are we headed now? Sources can confirm that the next city is… Dallas. The show has filmed in Miami, DC, Melbourne and Cheshire. The show has the tentative title of “Ladies of Dallas” but like RHONY, which started as “Manhattan Moms,” it will most likely be changed.
Bravo released this description of the show as such: “From glamorous galas to scintillating scandals, and supersized spending habits, life in the elite tier of the Dallas social scene is hard to crack, and even harder to maintain. Whether driven by vanity, personal validation, or career advancement, these Lone Star ladies all share the same goal- to climb the social ladder and stay on top.” Andy Cohen was on a radio show, where he said that we could see a new city “sooner than you think.”
So, what do you think of Dallas? Too much like Atlanta or the perfect mix? Let us know!
