Bravo is currently casting for The Real Housewives of New Orleans. They are looking to build a very specific cast for this new franchise. Bravo wants to cast NBA wives from the New Orleans Pelicans as well as local socialites from the area.
No one has signed on to the show just yet, as Bravo is still in the early planning stages of the franchise.
So, what are Bravo fans saying about this news? Well, the reaction has been quite mixed, to say the least.
Many Bravo quickly noted that the network should bring back the short-lived Southern Charm New Orleans. Most fans agree that the network didn’t invest enough time and money into that franchise in order for it to succeed.
“NO. BRING BACK SOUTHERN CHARM NEW ORLEANS. That show was Black excellence personified. We need more shows like that on Bravo,” one fan commented. A second fan agreed, commenting, “Maybe some of the cast from Southern Charm New Orleans can get another shot since it didn’t seem like bravo put money into that franchise.”
“The ppl want Southern Charm New Orleans!” a third fan pointed out.
Other fans noted that “it’s about damn time,” while some said that would like to see the New Orleans Housewives franchise be “another all-black cast” like the Real Housewives of Atlanta and the Real Housewives of Potomac.
Another fan said they hope Bravo finds castmembers that “embody the spirit of NOLA.”
“As someone from New Orleans, I hope they find old money or women from historic families and civil rights leaders and not “basketball wives” Basketball wives have nothing to do with the spirit of Nola,” the fan quipped.
Bravo has yet to confirm or deny reports that a New Orleans Housewives franchise is in the works. Only time will tell, but we are excited about the possibility.
This isn’t the first time news of a New Orleans Housewives franchise has come about. Back in December 2022, SHED Media teased that they were currently casting ladies from New Orleans.
“Producers are seeking fun, fabulous, glamorous women in New Orleans,” the announcement read.
At the time, the production company then hinted on their Instagram Stories that these ladies could “potentially” become the Real Housewives of New Orleans “if we do a good job” at casting.
