It all started with the OC, got political with D.C. and went over the top with Jersey! Most recently were the underwhelming additions of Potomac and Dallas; however apparently there were more cities that almost made the cut to be the home to Housewives.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Andy Cohen revealed what cities almost made the Bravo standard of becoming home to wine loving, drama starting women.
In a surprising statement, Andy reveals that “There are a lot of cities that we’ve cast in. People don’t know this.”
I had no idea that there were disappointed women across the U.S. that thought they were going to become the next Bethenny Frankel, only never to see air time. So where to these ladies reside? Andy dishes:
“We’ve cast in Greenwich, Connecticut, San Francisco, the wine country. We’ve cast all over the place. We have cast in Houston, where we didn’t wind up doing it, so there have been versions that never made it.”
Personally I think that Dallas has been a dud so maybe Houston would have been the better route Andy….
I think Greenwich, CT would have been interesting as you know it would have been full of preppy, tennis playing women with some old money. Personally I think this would have been more watchable than the bore fest that was the etiquette talk of Potomac.
I wonder if any of these will see the light of day. As the housewives have been a cash cow for Bravo, I don’t see them ending the franchise any time soon. Like any good show they are eventually going to need new cast members so perhaps some of this stored footage will eventually make it to our TVs. On a side note, as a girl from the Midwest I’m still waiting for a Midwest franchise – hint hint Andy 🙂
