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?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
