So for all you Brits, get ready because a little piece of the Red, White, and Blue may be headed your way in the form of a red headed housewife named Jill Zarin!

According to British newspaper The Daily Mail, infuriating one country isn’t enough for the Real Housewives of New York City star and sometimes super-villain Jill; who has been spending the summer there with rockstar Robbie Williams and his wife, actress, Ayda Field. Ayda, who was at one time considered a contender for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills allegedly never joined due to scheduling conflicts.

While in the UK, Mrs. Zarin who is hoping people like her more abroad has been hinting she’d be open to starring in a Real Housewives spin-off show in London: “Jill thinks that a ‘Real Housewives of London’ would be really fabulous and may take the girls there next season on her show.”

Bethenny Frankel fans can rejoice as apparently the Zarins love being on British soil so much they are considering purchasing a home in the ritzy Belgravia or Knightsbridge areas in $10 and $15million range, according to a source.

Jill who has been enjoying shopping, dining, and socializing in London provided no information on whether or not the possibility of a spin-off or a relocation could happen, although her rep offered this statement: “London is one of Jill and Bobby’s favorite cities and they are having a great time there!” I’m sure Jill Z will let us know ASAP about any new developments.

Similarly, Bravo is keeping mum regarding a possible British version of Housewives. Andy Cohen has previously announced he isn’t planning any additional Housewives locations after a disappointing debut in Miami and the cancellation of the DC series following much controversy (aka the Salahis); although there have been rumors of a new outpost in Dallas maybe (hopefully) being in the works. There has also been speculation that Bravo is considering a complete re-cast of RHoNY after the delayed release date and dissent from fans about the storyline and cast members. Maybe part of the recast will be shipping the notorious Jill Zarin across the pond!

Fans have long hoped for an international version of housewives and in the past Andy has mentioned he would entertain the idea. Perhaps using Ambassador Jill to round up fellow castmates, he can parlay her unpopularity into a hit show overseas!? I’m sure he could also convince former DC housewife, and native Brit Cat Ommanney to join the cast!

A picture of Jill out on the town with Ayda and Robbie is below.

Would you watch Real Housewives of London? What about if Jill was included in the cast?

Bravo's Most Eligible Dallas

Bravo has announced their newest series Most Eligible Dallas will debut in August!

The show follows a group of Texas socialites as they make their way through the Dallas dating scene. Some are looking for true love while others have perfected the art of the one-night stand, and somehow their love lives have all crossed paths at one time or another.

The cast includes (from L to R) Courtney Kerr – an outspoken Southern Belle, Matt Nordgren – an all-American, blue-eyed Texan charmer, Drew Ginsburg - openly gay, speaks his mind and wears his heart on his sleeve, Tara Harper – the quintessential Dallas girl, Glenn Pakulak – a punter for the Oakland Raiders, and Neill Skylar – a singer/songwriter and single mom to 1-year-old son.

According to the press release, “They’re young, they’re hot, they’re single – they’re Dallas’ Most Eligible. From beauty queens to pro-football players, this group of Texas socialites proves that everything’s bigger in Texas – including the drama. Dallas serves as the sexy backdrop for this jaw-dropping series that follows a group of successful friends living it up in the lone star state.”

The series premieres August 15 at 10/9c. The season trailer for Miami Social Most Eligible Dallas is below!

Andy Cohen

Months after stating Bravo was likely done with new housewives franchises following the Miami disaster, it seems Andy Cohen is deciding to leave that door open.

In a new interview with Variety, the Bravo executive VP of original programming and development reveals he’s happy with the current franchises on the air but is always open to adding a new series if all things are right.

“We’re at a really good place right now,” says Andy. “Each city will be on for three or four months, and then they go away for close to a year. That’s a nice thing. It allows the women to regroup. It also allows the viewers to miss them.”

Andy adds that if the cast is right, a new additional franchise is possible while also revealing a shocker! According to Andy, Bravo actually tried to get a Texas franchise, which might or might not be my dream franchise, going but failed to find the right cast.

“You only want cities with strong points of view, cities that have strong regional personalities,” explains Andy. “We’ve tried to mount a Texas (incarnation), but we never hit the nail on the head with casting.”

Sighs.  Here’s to hoping the socialites, famewhores, and housewives of Dallas will step up to the plate and allow their lives to be featured on Bravo! I stand strong in my belief that a Texas franchise would be G.E.N.I.U.S.

In other Andy news, a new report came out today stating he is one of the three finalists being considered by ABC to replace Regis Philbin on “Live with Regis and Kelly.” The other two finalists are said to be Ryan Seacrest and Mark Consuelos.

Kate Gosselin is looking for love and is passive aggressively finally getting along with ex-husband Jon Gosselin for the sake of the couple’s eight children. She opens up about her new arrangement with Jon and her checklist for a potential mate in a series of recent interviews. So, Kate’s on a media blitz again…did I miss a new book she’s promoting?

On Monday, Kate, who is pictured above yesterday leaving the Today Show in New York City, appeared on Access Hollywood, bantering awkwardly with Billy Bush. When asked about any current relationships, Kate reveals that she has a hard time letting her guard down and her suitors are few and far between. Schmoozing Billy, she responds, “It’s like I’m promoting a dating show, [but] I’m not,” and she asks his co-host, “Do you have any single friends?”

Billy Bush compares Kate to Angelina Jolie in regards to a mother with mutliple children trying to find lasting love. I think Kate’s head may explode. Kate admits she’d like an older man, someone in his forties, driven, smart, and hot. Billy believes Kate would have better luck if she’d “start making out a little.” Sorry, Jon…it doesn’t look like a reconciliation is in store for you.

And speaking of Jon, Kate hasn’t been silent on him either. In the same interview, Kate touches on Jon’s recent endeavors, as well as his time with the kids. She takes a subtle shot at Jon points out, “He is actually making an effort for the four days a month he has [the] kids. I do wish he would see them more, but that is what he has chosen. The kids would like to see him more. So at least it’s consistent. Anytime he wants them more he can have them more and he knows that.” Wow, that sounds a tad harsh, but also it sounds as if maybe Jon should see those children more.

Kate however sang a different tune to People, stating, “The kids enjoy spending time with [Jon]. They wish he would see them more, but as long as they come home happy – and more or less they do – I’m okay with that, so that’s good.” Still a tad biting, but a little better, nonetheless. She continues saying, “It’s just naturally gotten more peaceful, which is good,” while citing the couple’s very different parenting styles.

The mother of eight returns to her dating criteria, reiterating, “I want somebody who is older…I can’t be bothered with these little boys.” Ouch. However, she does concede that dating isn’t her be-all-end-all goal. “I’m at the point where I’m like, ‘Okay, there’s got to be somebody out there who would work. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. And if not, then whatever. I’m happy as I am.” It’s a good attitude to have…let’s just hope Kate means it, and that she and Jon continue (start?) to make those children a priority. Regardless, I’m betting they both hope you tune in to the new season of Kate Plus Eight, this coming Monday at 10 ET on TLC.

From L to R: Kim Lewin, Raquel Miller, Pat Smith, Tina Majerle and Lori Citron

Will there or won’t there be a Real Housewives of Scottsdale seems to be the lingering question today.

According to a number of local media outlets in Arizona, the new housewives franchise is indeed in the works! KPHO.com reports a pilot for the Scottsdale Housewives will begin filming this week at the VIP opening of Scottsdale Quarter’s Drybar.

A source tells the site that three cast members have admitted to having signed show contracts. Another media outlet Arizona Foothills confirms the same story, stating that three women have signed on for the show.

Those three women are Lori Citron, wife of anesthesiologist Gregg Citron; Tina Majerle, wife of former Phoenix Suns player Dan Majerle; and, Kim Lewin. The three ladies are pictured above at a 2008 event. Other possible cast members include Juliette Irakliev, Raquel Miller, Raya Cavernes and Char Hubb.

Sounds pretty good right? Except Bravo’s own Andy Cohen denied the news on his twitter page yesterday. When a fan asked him about the show, he simply replied “No truth.”

However, it is very possible that both Andy and the media outlets are right. Why you ask? Well for one, shooting a pilot simply means shooting a pilot. It means the show hasn’t been officially picked up by the network yet, and will only get picked up if the network likes what they see.

So the moral of this story folks is that it’s a definite possibility the Real Housewives of Scottsdale might soon be a reality… show; that is if the ladies can bring the drama. We’re guessing following the D.C. and Miami disasters, Bravo is playing it safe when it comes to new franchises. So the Scottsdale ladies had better bring it or else the show will just remain a pilot.

As for Andy’s previous comments of there being no plans for new housewives series, it’s very unlikely he has the lone say in that issue as there are other higher ups at Bravo that get a say as well. But at the end of the day, the fact that Bravo is shooting a new housewives pilot debunks that statement as it at least confirms the network is still open to adding on more housewives series. Plus Andy made that statement before the recent cancellation of the DC Housewives, which leaves room for the network to add a new franchise.

In the meantime, we will continue to daydream about our dream franchise aka the Real Housewives of Dallas. Sigh.
