What city should Bravo do a "Real Housewives of..." series in next?
Real Housewives of Miami was a wash-out. Real Housewives of Orange County is incredibly boring.
Have they exhausted the best housewife locales or are there any places they need to do still out there?
They've pretty much picked the most self-indulgent, vacuous regions of the country already; it's time to retire the airheads.
I'd tune in every night for "Real Housewives of Swamp People"
The South Bronx
Seriously. South Bronx is not a bad idea. If they want reality, not a bad idea to focus on real working class housewives.
As if Kelly Bensimon ever cleaned a toilet in her life
Can you see the cross-over with the NYC bitches? The Countess and Ramona show up at Wilona's apartment in the projects, with Ramona demanding her pinot instead of drinking from the proferred forty and the Countess trying to look natural sitting on plastic covered furniture?
Who the fuck are you calling boring? I went bankrupt, divorced my abusive husband and now I'm fucking a hot closet case. What the fuck more do you want?
Personally, I'd like to see the Real Housewives of the Ozarks. I was sad to see the Jerry Springer show go off the air, so it would definitely fill the void left by Jerry's departure.
Bravo's missing an opportunity by failing to focus on white southern women - a cultural viper's den all it down.
Dallas, Nashville, Savannah, Richmond - all ripe for exploitation.
Cleveland, of course.
Nashville would be great. But I don't know if enough "society" women would do it.
Somewhere in one of the California wine regions (Central Coast region is trendy now.)
I liked Miami. They didn't give it a shot and loaded it up with basketball bullshit.
Marisol and her mom were awesome.
I agree with r11.
Real Housewives of Cambridge, MA.
Harper Valley...heard their PTA is a little Payton Place.
Palm Beach: I would love to see how catty the rich grannys can get .
Real Lifepartners of Portland, Oregon
Lesbian powercouples from one of the most liberal metro areas in the nation redefine drama! Watch the moderate liberal argue with the libertarian at a fundraiser to legalize hemp.
Butch vs. fem! Vegan vs. regular vegetarian! Boundaries will be stated! Birkenstocks will fly!!!
How about the Real Housewives of Wasilla? Now that would be interesting.
Nantucket, of course,
The Real Housewives of Newt Gingrich.
Die Echten Hausfrauen von Trier, Deutschland
They won't do Nashville because the Louisville one flopped. New Mexico would be good.
Santa Fe, not Albuquerque though. More characters in Santa Fe.
Chicago or Greenwich, CT, or London. Maybe they can go out of the US.
They should have "The Real Husbears of Fire Island."
Madison, West Virginia. With high class Lisa Sue and her husband Ken Bob, owners of the local Tudor's Bisquit World franchise who always carry around their pet possum, Moonshine, who they keep dressed up in all kinds of cute outfits. And wealthy Addie Ann whose family owns the largest strip mine in Boone County and whose husband runs the local Minute Clinic.
Also starring whichever 2 women of the Wild And Wonderful White family who are out on bail at the moment.
With special appearences by Jesup White dancing in the intro.
Greenwich, CT would be interesting, but in this region of the country people are averse to appearing on television and famewhoring is looked down upon.
Realistically, it would be another big city or city that has some national cache.
Totally agree that Dallas or some other southern city focusing on rich white women would be gold. Chicago would seem obvious, since it's the third largest city in the the U.S. But, where would the show focus? "Rich" women who actually live in the city, or North Shore suburban women?
Houston, San Diego, Boston?
Seattle: Fleece and flip flops.
A lot of you are trying far too hard.
And Texas, bitch please. Stop trying to make that shithole happen. Ain't nobody talking about Top Chef Texas or The A List Dallas.
There's plenty of gay list Dallas threads on this forum.
Another vote for Charleston, New Orleans, Richmond, or Savannah, as long as it's women from actual old money, not McMansion-dwelling wannabes.
r16, I liked Marisol and her mom too. Unfortunately, most of the women in Miami are just as annoying as some of the housewives in this series.
According to its Wikipedia page they will have a second season without the basketball wives.
Real Housewives of the Lake of Fire in Hell.
Real Housewives of Bay City
Frisco, Texas bitches!!! A suburb of Dallas full of society wannabes,
Real Housewives Hillbilly Hand Fishin!
Silicon Valley: All that money, all those freaky libertarians.
Honolulu: Beautiful locale, lots of fucked up old money (missionary)trust fund babies.
I agree with Charleston.
Nashville: Country music scene.
I agree with Dallas.
Aspen would be great because there is so much money, and a lot of celebrities, but it is also a small town, so everyone knows everyone else's business.
Good one, R52!

I doubt enough "actual old money" women would do it. Wannabees is the stock-in-trade for the Real Housewives series.
Oh, and I totally agree that Silicon Valley would work well.
Seattle. Imagine long discussions about gluten-free diets and whether or not something is compostable or just recyclable.
Sheboygan. It's a criminally under-rated city.
Des Moines. Or Cedar Rapids.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake. They only have to film one family.
"Silicon Valley: All that money, all those freaky libertarians."
Not many of those freaky Libertarian Silicon Valley nerds have wives, much less housewives. (Nor girlfriends, nor dates within the last year.)
Some channel is doing some type of real housewives of SF type thing, I got a casting notice a few months ago about it.

Difficult indeed. It defies the "hatch, match, and dispatch" rule of Old Money.
I might watch some small Southern town: Eufaula, Alabama; Madison, Georgia; Vicksburg, Mississippi...
None. Keep it as it is. They almost ruined the franchise with DC and Cuba(I mean Miami). If they have to do a new city what about Paris or London?
Cha Cha de la Gregoria y la Sanchez
Who wrote Pyongyang!? Hilarious and sick. I love this place (sometimes).
The Real Housewives of Hell
Decatur, GA - called "Dyke-atur" because it has so many lesbians in it's 25,000 suburban population that they have 3 different lesbian gardening clubs
Connecticut (NYC rich suburbs)
Macon, GA - they have some great characters amongst their rich ladies, and the city is chock full of eccentric characters
San Francisco - there has never been a decent TV show set in SF but there are so many great people there!
Honolulu or Anchorage
I'd vote for a new show: Cross-Eyed Andy's Fab Life, in which we watch -- and battle waves of nausea -- as he air kisses celebrities and talks to normal people...as he's doing so, is looking over their shoulders for someone more important.
How about one with lesbians.....Real Housewives of Lickity Split.
The lesbian Real Housewives would have to be in Decatur, Georgia. There's a massive area of lesbians that stretches from East Atlanta & Midtown Atlanta, thru Little 5 Points, Candler Park, Lake Clare, all of Decatur, and into Avondale Estates.
They should include one of the lesbian auto mechanics at the all-lesbian car repair shop on DeKalb Avenue. I forgot its name.
San Francisco definitely. I'd add a couple of fabulous gay men to the cast to get the true flavah of SF.
SF also has tons of gorgeous scenery, something that most of the other Housewives shows don't have. And you've got plenty of day trip options like the Wine Country, Carmel, etc.
East Bumfucke, Iowa
(and I can't believe it's taken almost 90 responses before this got posted. My, how DL has declined....)
They already have a similar Bravo Housewife themed show on Texas Called, "Big Rich Texas". The show is on the Style Network. Its a bit cheap than the Housewives on Bravo ,but I think its better because these women, especially their daughters! UGH! are royal bitches!The fights are pretty fun on the show as well. One lady on their named Leslie is a super conniving, social climber to the point that she is embarrassing. If you haven't watched that show, give it try you just might like it. Its on Sundays.
LOL r3 r50 r80
R85, that stretch of lesbians is affectionately known as "Dick-Hater".
The Real Housewives of the Michigan Womyns Music Festival
Charlotte. There is enough new money trash around (hidden behind a veil of Praise the Lord!) to make at least one good season.
Real Housewives of Chernobyl.
For obvious reasons.
Detroit would actually be great idea because it would show people northern rich black women. Southfield has one of the highest concentration of upper class blacks. It's not all about Atlanta. We already have enough white shows, though it is rumored Dallas production and casting have been underway.
No one would go for an Asian themed housewives show but that would be cool too.
R101 There are a lot of wealthy Asian American communities in the San Francisco area. I'm sure at least some of the inhabitants would be outrageous but I agree sadly-most tv viewers probably wouldn't want to watch...
Honolulu would be cool too...
How about Real Housewives of Real People? You know, the Real Housewives who aren't out to seek fame, the Real Housewives who live paycheck to paycheck, the Real Housewives who have to take extra jobs to make sure there is food on the table, the Real Housewives who just want to relax and drink a beer and not think about life, the Real Housewives who know where their husbands are but turn a blind eye, the Real Housewives who clip coupons and make sacrifices and try to be good people without thinking of themselves first?
Nah, Bravo would never because they know tasteless, superficial fags who watch Real Housewives because they idolize the lifestyle of the rich and narcissistic wouldn't watch it.
We have old money, ball players wives, rich rednecks..
I pick up the freebie "society" mags from time to time, and the same implanted, botoxed chicks are always in it. I've even met a few, and I'm pretty sure they would jump at the chance to trash it up on tv!
R106 but are the Memphis gals any different from the other cities? How would they stand out?
You are right I guess.. I don't know what the "hook" would be to do a franchise here in Memphis.
I have never watched the Miami one, and only a few eps of Orange County. Jersey has gotten to be too much--I can't handle all the family drama and I really don't like anyone on the show.
Too bad DC didn't make it. It wasn't thrilling or anything but the locale made it interesting.
Andy, NONE please. Enough is enough. You are talented enough to think up a new genre as well as a new show for yourself. You had a great thing going with PR and you lost it. Think how to find something that can replace the excitement it generated season 2.
They need to reel it in a little. They should do The Real Housewives of Lake Forest, IL.
Dallas is already confirmed. The former Mrs Troy Aikman is in the cast. Too bad they weren't filming the day she was arresting for being drunk in public. Her arrest video (on TMZ) makes her look like an entitled bitch. I am sure Troy-boy is embarrased
The Real House Husbands of Palm Springs
Dallas will be hilarious. They can do tacky better than anyone else.
They need to go to Peoria,IL.They have people fighting,stabbing,and shooting all the time.Of course that is in certain parts of town.Do a show on their everyday lives and see how the other side of town is.
Bravo needs to stop with the Real Housewives shows. It is overrated right now.
REAL HOUSEWIVES OF SAVANNAH,GA
R118 ooh Savannah is Paula Deen's territory. Would be awesome to have unfiltered Paula join reality tv.
Why Bumfucke, Silly.
Anaheim, Azusa, and Cucamonga!
Real Housewives of Hell: Teresa,Vicki, Bethenney, Jill, Ramona, Nene,Kenya,the Countess, and Granny G.
I am glad Jeff Lewis was able to morph his house flipping business into renovating rich fool's houses. When he told his client was the worse client he'd ever had. It all ended happily though.
Richmond already has it's own reality show. "The Real Babymamas Of Richmond". I shit you not. One of them is a lesbian. Why hasn't Bravo picked this up?
"The Real Housewives of the Lake of Fire", because they should all burn in Hell.
Moscow. Just think of all those bitchy, trashy criminal nouveaux riches.
Aspen and Honolulu would be good. But going outside the US would be interesting. Love the Moscow idea. London could have a very exotic cast with all the international types who live there.
Savannah? Maybe Paula Deen's next gig.
I have seen the Real Housewives franchises of both Vancouver and Dublin and they both sucked. The drama was on such a smaller, less serious scale and the women weren't willing to get super trashy or "really go there" with one another. I don't know about the other international versions though.
Please do one in Palm Springs/palm desert.. It's similar to the life of Orange County just minus the beach. It would be amazing!!!!!
No doubt about it, Brooklyn NYC
Those old Jewish/Italian widows whose husbands left them a few bucks and now they're on their own.
It's as real life as you will get with the " Glamour" and Drama.
Andy pay attention to this....
I've actually got two of the l" Ladies" in mind.
And think about the possibilities of crossover with RHNY and even NJ.
Also a guest appearance by Mob Wives.
Andy pay attention,
And I want credit.
Chicago or Dallas or Houston
No more East Coast bitches. That has been done over and over and over.
THey should do Chicago and it should be the cast of Mob Wives Chicago...HOW IS THAT SHOW NOT BACK ON THE AIR? That woman who dug up her father was fucking nuts!! And the one who looked like Alex Borstein was funnier than shit.
Real Housewives of the White House where Barbara, Nancy and Michelle have to duke it out on live TV. My money is on Barbara.
The Real Housewives of Detroit.
[quote]The Real Housewives of Detroit.
The Real Homelesswives of Detroit.
R49, you made me laugh. I'm probably one of about 3 people who probably get that! I do think Dallas would be a great opportunity but I wish they would mix it up with a gay man or two. I think Chicago would be too boring.
They tried casting a Chicago version but couldn't find the right cast... So they continued with NY
Duh. Real Housewives of Denver, starring Alexis, Krystle, Dominique, Fallon, and Claudia. Friends include Kirby and Sammy Jo.
If they want to continue with this franchise, i think doing a new city would work. Its about time. Maybe Las Vegas or Nashville.
PLEASE NO MORE!
Someone please buy Bravo and dismantle it and its' employees and destroy all the master copies of all the shows.
We need this shit like we need more crazy people from the mid east.
We have sufficient.
Hades, but isn't anyone who watches this useless tripe already there?
I've found the only difference between the RH's series (all) and the "My Big, Fat Gypsy Wedding" series is the RH women's clothes and homes are more expensive. That's pretty much it. However, I often confuse the two whenever I watch RHONJ.
I'd like to see a house boys version. The Real House Boys of LA. A gay version.
