Have you ever wondered if you’ve got what it takes to be a Real Housewife?
Well, Bravo Producer Michael Beck is revealing what it takes to be the ultimate Real Housewife in a new interview.
Michael, who’s worked on Bravo shows like the Real Housewives of New York, Don’t Be Tardy, and the Real Housewives of Atlanta, says that Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan are perfect examples of ideal Housewives.
“Someone who is uninhibited, somebody who definitely has their own opinion about things, whatever that may be,” Michael said of the ideal Real Housewife. “Somebody who has a very unique perspective on the world that’s a little bit different. And somebody who wants to do it.”
Michael went on to explain that he often acts as a “counselor, a therapist, and a best friend” to the reality stars he works with. And while he often finds himself in the middle of the drama he works hard to avoid being “too involved.”
“You don’t want to really give advice, but be more of an ear for them,” he explained.
When it comes to reality TV friendships, Michael admits he was very disappointed to see Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel‘s friendship to end the way it did.
However, Michael also applauds the entire RHONY cast for being “such professionals” and “so good at their job.”
“They know what their fans want, they know what the show deserves. They are truly authentic and so real. Nobody puts it on for the camera. This is truly who they are,” he shared.
“Ramona is authentically her. For as crazy as she is and the things that come out of her mouth, it’s authentically her and that’s what has kept her on the show for so long. And has made her such a beloved character of the Real Housewives franchises,” Michael explained.
“I love Sonja Morgan. I just love her to death. I think she’s hilarious and fun and has no shame and is willing to do anything, say anything, go anywhere,” he continued.
Michael added that Sonja NEVER tries to edit her storyline like some of her co-stars have been known to do.
