The countdown is on – 62 days until the premiere of the Real Housewives of Potomac. Not only are we excited about new women (to love and love to hate) in new cities, but we’re also looking forward to the Real Housewives franchise getting back to basics (we’re holding you to it, Andy!).
Last week, Andy Cohen dished on what viewers should expect from the Real Housewives of Potomac and the Real Housewives of Dallas. “Both Dallas and Potomac remind me of really early Orange County and New York,” said Andy. “It reminds me of early Housewives. It’s the way they communicate. It’s about how they live their lives, and it’s about families. It’s very grounded, and it harkens back to early Housewives for me. Both of them. It’s really interesting.”

I fully admit I googled “Where’s Potomac?!?” when the cities were revealed.
Andy acknowledged that Potomac was an “unusual choice,” adding, “It’s kind of this random location that people don’t necessarily identify with specifically, but it means so much to the women that live there. They have such a clear sense of what it is and what it means and what the rules are an what it’s like.”
About the Real Housewives of Potomac cast, Andy shared, “I love these women. They’re very affluent. They have strong ties to the community. They’re very into etiquette.”
Andy shot down the notion that he felt compelled to do the Real Housewives of D.C. better. “It was this group of women. They just popped. They’re stars and they’re great,” boasted Andy. “So we didn’t go out saying, ‘Oh we want to do another Housewives in the D.C. area.’ It was the last thing on our minds, trust me, but then these women emerged, and they were great. I am loving that show, and you will, too.”
As for the Real Housewives of Dallas, Andy admitted, “We’ve been tinkering around with Dallas for, I want to say, seven years we’ve been thinking about this. We cast there. We cast in Houston. We didn’t get it right in either place. And then this cast happened maybe a year ago. I don’t even know. We thought this could be good.”
Rumor has it that this particular cast was put together with “Ladies of Dallas” in mind, but the powers that be were so impressed with the cast and their footage, they gave them the coveted “Real Housewives” treatment.
Real Housewives of Potomac premieres Sunday, January 17th on Bravo.
