Was the premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey a little emotional for your liking? The dinner party on The Real Housewives of Orange County a little TOO crazy? Are you still recovering months later from that Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion? Well, Hulu and Paramount Digital Entertainment have just the thing for you. The Hotwives of Orlando is a brand new show that premieres today, serving as both a super funny parody and true love letter to the Housewives we all know, love and love/hate. It stars some of our favorite funny gals including Kristen Schaal, Angela Kinsey and Casey Wilson, whose years of being a Housewives aficionado have more than prepared her for this hilarious role.
You can watch the first two episodes now, or the entire series if you’ve got Hulu+. And like Burning Love and Children’s Hospital before it, this show takes everything you love about your favorite drama shows and makes them hilarious. So hilarious even, that we did some “laughing until we cry because it’s oh so true” at these particular Housewives staples:

Mentions of borrowing clothes from your toddler

A full-blown argument breaks out in the middle of a party
Party guests look on horrified, the viewer can’t wait to see what’s done or said next, all the while questioning which lady’s side your on and your own common sense about dog feet.
There are some lines you just don’t cross, and telling another woman to “calm down” is one of them.
Making your drama intentions known
You must declare often that you “don’t want any drama”….seconds before you create drama. It’s a skill and a talent. One the Hotwives excel at.
The true currency of this show. Another woman’s appearance, house size, bank account, marriage: they’re all fair game!
You must critique any and all things you witness (or hear about) the other ladies doing. And relay any and all bitchy comments to the person they were about. She would want to know!
Wait, what’s his job? Are you sure he’s a loving husband? Why is he up in your business? If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions, you could be a Hotwife!
A whole season of crazy
Coming up on this season of Hotwives of Orlando: Recording songs! Rehab! Weddings! Arguments! Plastic surgery! Drinking! Fake hair! More drinking!
