Over It: Is Bravo Finished With Housewives Spinoffs? Andy Cohen Says 'Yeah'
With seven different versions of the show and a gazallion cities to reach, Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise could have swept the nation. Bravo’s Andy Cohen told OK! That won’t be happening. Miami might be the last stop.
“I really feel like we’re done,” Andy said. “Yeah.”
As recently confirmed by the network, a casting call notice on Craig's List that went out for what seemed to be a "Real Housewives of San Francisco" was a hoax.
The newest version of the show, “Real Housewives of Miami” was bumped ahead of “Real Housewives of New York.” Critics of the new series say that while it may be hot in Miami, the show adds no spice to the “Housewives” label.
Interestingly, the much anticipated first drag-queen housewive, Elaine Lancaster – who would surely have mixed things up with a pickle or two - has not been included as one the featured ladies. Elaine, however, can be seen in the background of some of the social events.
While she may not be given much of a narrative on the show (at least not yet), we are loving her philosophical-fashionista tweets, like this one from March 14:
“Above all, remember that the most important thing you can take anywhere is not a Gucci bag or French-cut jeans; it's an open mind."
The "Real Housewives" phenomenon includes: Orange County, Atlanta, New York, New Jersey, D.C., Beverly Hills, Miami, Bethenny Frankel’s reality shows, and Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens.”
