OK. So. There are more Housewives looking to promote their wine/jewelry/couture/poodle hair extensions line, so get ready for two new cities full of saucy minxes.
The Real Housewives of Potomac, premiering January 17th, 2016, will feature crazy women fighting over dumb things, set against the backdrop of a "cozy, upscale enclave with gated mansions, rolling hills, and exclusive country clubs."
The cast includes:
- Socialite and single mom Gizelle Bryant
- International model/TV personality Katie Rost
- "Grand dame Karen Huger (I don't know what that means)
- "Social butterfly" Charrisse Jackson-Jordan
- Publicist and single mom Robyn Dixon
- Restaurateur Ashley Darby
"If you haven't heard of Potomac, that's fine, because that means we've done a great job of keeping it a nice, little secret." - Gizelle Bryant
We haven't, Gizelle, but we did watch The Real Housewives of D.C. and are kind of confused as to Andy Cohen and Co. are still trying to make the D.C area happen, since the national's capital franchise only made it through one season (we will always have Michaele Salahi, she who snuck into a White House dinner, then left her husband, Tareq for Journey's Neal Schon; their wedding was available to rent on Pay-Per-View).
Not to overwhelm you with Housewives news, but there will also be a Dallas franchise!
I'm actually shocked they haven't already conquered Dallas, since big hair, debutantes, Neiman Marcus and oil money tie in very well with the Bravo theme.
"It's a natural extension of the franchise with a Southern twist that 'ya'll' will enjoy," Cohen said in a statement obtained by E!.
The Real Housewives of Dallas will air later in 2016.
