“We’ve always tried to choose a city that has completely unique personalities and we also try to throw a little curveball now and then. Pick somewhere you weren’t expecting,” Andy, 51, said. “We are very excited to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah!”
Andy went on to tell fans that the new location would provide plenty of unexpected entertainment. “You didn’t see it coming but I have to tell you, in Utah, you have the majesty of the mountains, the Mormon religion, an exclusive community of people who have very successful businesses who live in their own universe,” the talk show host revealed. “It is gorgeous, and I think you’re going to be really surprised and intrigued by the group of women we’ve found.”
The shocking news first broke at the Bravo’s first-ever BravoCon held on Saturday, November 16, 2019. The network released an official statement regarding the new installment.
“The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City takes viewers into an undiscovered world that is about so much more than religion, although the Mormon church is undeniably ingrained in the culture. In the majestic mountains of Utah is a hidden social circle made up of successful women who have created their own paradise filled with luxury homes, shopping sprees and multi-million-dollar businesses and brands.”
Bravo further highlighted the individuality of the new location. “With Hollywood’s exclusive Sundance Film Festival in their backyards, there Type-A- power-brokers are accustomed to rubbing elbows with A-listers and what part list you are on means everything. They have mastered running widely successful enterprises by day and enjoy après ski at the finest resorts by night, all the while raising extraordinary and unconventional families.”
“Here perfection is not an aspiration, it’s a mandate. They hold themselves and each other to an extremely high standard and never hold back when things go sideways, but lord knows they are always there for each other when they need it most,” the statement concluded.
The housewives franchised first launched in March 2006 with The Real Housewives of Orange County. The network added Atlanta and New York City to the roster in 2008 and later added several other cities including Potomac, Dallas, and New Jersey.
