The Real Housewives franchise has already put women from a total of nine cities on the map, but Andy Cohen revealed there could have been more! The Bravo host at the center of the reality series name dropped a few cities that almost got picked up but ultimately didn’t make the cut. Scroll through for more details.
The series, which began in 2006, currently airs the drama of women from Orange County, New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, Beverly Hills, Potomac, and Dallas.
Bravo also had branches of the franchise in D.C. and Miami, although they didn’t last long.
Of the newer series’, Andy said, “Dallas had a breakout season last year, and Potomac's got it happening right now."
He then revealed, “We've cast in some cities that we haven't wound up pursuing, like Greenwich, Connecticut and Chicago and San Francisco and Houston. So there have been a lot of places that we've tried but just didn't work."
The Housewives executive producer told the audience some of the factors that go into casting. “You look for a group of friends. Producers bring in casting people, and they find women who are on the society pages and belong to country clubs. 'Who are your friends, and how do you know each other?' In the end, you kind of wind up with a reel of maybe 10 women who have some connections with each other,” Andy said.
