Bravo fans might be celebrating another new Real Housewives city in 2022!
It’s no secret that Bravo will be premiering their latest Real Housewives franchise the Real Housewives of Dubai in June but it seems that the network may have another new Real Housewives city in the works as well.
According to a report from Bravo and Cocktails Bravo cameras are rolling for the Real Housewives of Winnetka. If you’re wondering where the hell this is you’re not alone.
“I’m currently in contract to become an inaugural housewife on The Real Housewives of Winnetka. We’ve been filming for a couple [of] weeks under “working Illinois project” but our producers have told us we’re a Real Housewives franchise. There is five of us filming, and we’ve had a lot of drama. I CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE WHAT WE’VE BEEN DOING!!” the source, aka an unnamed alleged castmember, revealed.
Winnetka is located in Illinois and is a suburb of Chicago. It’s actually the town where the house from Home Alone is located.
Per those in the know, Winnetka is a very affluent area and is full of people with money and wealth. The median listing home price in Winnetka is $1.3 million.
If this report is true it would be interesting to know if Bravo would call the franchise the Real Housewives of Winnetka or the Real Housewives of Chicago [or Illinois].
Talks of a Chicago-based Real Housewives franchise have been swirling for years – in fact, rumors go back all the way to 2017.
In 2021, it seemed like Real Housewives of Chicago might be a go when former RHONY star Tinsley Mortimer moved to Chicago to be with her former fiancé Scott Kluth.
Andy Cohen addressed the possibility on WWHL in February 2021 saying, “I don’t know. I mean, it seems like we’re good right now. I know there was a moment when Tinsley [Mortimer] moved to Chicago to cast around her, but I think we’re good.”
Only time will tell if this report is true or not but I’d love to see a franchise in or around Chicago become a reality.
