The Real Housewives franchise keeps chugging along! Even when we get annoyed by a particular franchise, we’d never, ever give up on any of these crazy ladies and their sidekicks. And thanks to Bravo, we’re going to have another batch of rich and (sometimes wacky and tacky) women to watch!
There have been rumors for years now about the possibility of new cities being added to the Real Housewives family, but none have ever came to fruition. However, Andy Cohen confirmed this week that a new franchise is coming and SOON!
“In Cheshire, a county in Northwest England, there are only two ways to move: up or out. Nicknamed the Golden Triangle, it is known for its expensive homes, famous residents, and spectacular countryside,” saysBravo. “In the premiere, Dawn Ward’s annual Crème De La Crème Charity Ball – one of the biggest events on the Cheshire social calendar – quickly approaches but not without a few snafus along the way. It is a whirlwind of panicked last-minute dress fittings and big misunderstandings over tickets as the housewives prepare to make their grand appearance… even if they are unwelcome.” Look below to meet the cast of the Real Housewives of Cheshire and watch the preview clip.
Andy opens with the obvious question – why are David and Shannon torturing us, err, themselves, err, their girls with this “All About The Affair” interview?
“There’s been a tremendous backlash to Shannon,” says David. “It’s amazing that people that are on social media just completely shred her about Shannon and I’s relationship, about how I am completely removed from the marriage and look at my eyes, and it’s not true. I love Shannon. I love my family. It’s so unfair to her. That is really the reason I’m here. I’m not looking forward to this. I don’t want to be here, but I hate the fact that they attack Shannon over this. I hate it.”
A snippet from the press release: “After vows have been broken, Bravo delves into the hardships and gut-wrenching truths of repairing a strained marriage as Andy Cohen hosts a special Watch What Happens Live one-on-one with Shannon and David Beador, airing Monday, October 5 at 11 PM ET/PT. The couple talks candidly about what led to David’s infidelity, whether he was in love with his mistress, and if their relationship is strong enough to move forward and keep their family together.” Check out two preview clips from the special below.

MDLLA will once again follow the ups and downs of Josh Altman, Josh Flagg, James Harris, and David Parnes. In season 8, Josh Altman is all about selling real estate – a million dollars a day to be exact – but Heather Bilyeu is all about making babies. Josh Flagg is “always moving forward” thanks to his grandmother’s influence on his life. “With boyfriend Colton at his side,” shares Bravo, “Josh Flagg is more aggressive than ever as he aims to become L.A.’s top-selling real estate agent.” As for James and David, they’re both struggling to find a work/home balance. “When work stress mounts, they lash out, causing them to not only clash with competing agents, but also each other.”
To soften the blow of the cancellation of NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches, Bravo is giving us Reza Farahan and Tabatha Coffey. They won’t be on a road trip together, because I would like to think not even Bravo would do that to our beloved Tabatha, but they have each scored a potential new show.
Bravo announced three new shows in development yesterday – Yours, Mine or Ours (same premise as Love It or List It on HGTV), Heir Heads, and Tabatha’s Life Take Over (similar to Iyanla: Fix My Life). Check out the press release below and let us know which of these new reality shows you plan to watch.
Yesterday, Bravo announced that Real Housewives of Atlanta season 8 is a go, as if there was any doubt. While the show will move forward without its last remaining original cast member, NeNe Leakes, she’ll no doubt be a big part of the 100th episode special. A big, loud, and obnoxious part.
On Sunday, July 12th, Bravo will air the Real Housewives of Atlanta: 100th Episode Watch What Happens Live Special. “The one-hour special will take a trip down memory lane and relive the series’ most unforgettable and buzziest moments,” announced Bravo. “From shady digs to an array of wigs, Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen pulls back the curtain on one of reality TV’s most-talked about shows and sits down with Housewives past and present to get the scoop on how the series has affected their lives.”
