Bravo has proven that they are working to ‘up’ their Latino viewers by not only adding Mexican Dynasties to their lineup, but are now bringing us the fabulous world of Mexicans living in Texas, appropriately titles ‘Texicans.’
While not part of the Real Housewives franchise, the show sounds like it will have a similar formula as it will focus on a close knit group of girls. The show is described as:
“This sisterhood of Mexican-Americans is bringing us their margaritas, mariachis, and larger-than-life Texas glamour…with a twist on their Mexican roots.”
Get your first look at the new show in the video below:
According to Bravo the colorful group of women will include:
Penny Ayarzagoitia, who was born in the U.S. but spent her youth in Mexico. She’s built a successful real estate career in San Antonio with husband Raul and together, they have two sons.
Mayra Farret, who was born in Mexico and moved to San Antonio with her husband, Fernando, nine years ago and is now a U.S. citizen. Although she once worked a high-powered finance job, she didn’t have a green card when she immigrated, so she shifted her focus from her career to raising her two sons.
Lorena Martinez was born in a Texas border town but raised in Reynosa, Mexico, and married her husband, Ignacio, at the age of 19. Described as a social butterfly, Lorena has a traditional “machista” marriage, in which her husband runs a construction company while she runs her family.
Anayancy Nolasco was born in Mexico and is the only friend in her group who isn’t a U.S. citizen. She moved to San Antonio for college and stayed in the U.S. after having her daughter Ellie. Anayancy is a single mom and self-described “daddy’s girl,” and she enjoys going back to Mexico often to be spoiled by her father.
Karla Ramirez and husband Manoli Zacharias have been living in San Antonio for the past 13 years. In addition to being parents to two sons, Karla and Manoli own several businesses together, including upscale nightclub Hotel Discotheque.
Luz Ortiz has lived in San Antonio for 17 years but grew up in a conservative environment in Sonora, Mexico. Luz married at age 23 and had three children, but got divorced six years ago, realizing she didn’t want to conform to her husband’s traditional expectations.
The show will be filmed in San Antonio; however as we all love a Bravo crossover, perhaps they can do a RHOD cameo?
The show will premiere on Tuesday, May 7, at 10/9c. Be sure to watch the premiere then come back to AllAboutTRH to let us know if you think it’s a hit!
