Tinsley Andy

We were ALL expecting the new Real Housewives series announcement at BravoCon. However, pretty much no one saw it coming when Andy Cohen said the new show is Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.

Many people were so sure that the Real Housewives of Chicago was in the works. Not only that, but Tinsley Mortimer has been going back and forth to Chicago thanks to her relationship with Scott Kluth. After she got engaged, it made sense that Tinsley would leave New York City for the Windy City. I mean, come on, she doesn’t even really live there. She is just staying in a hotel room while she films. Are all of these elements coming together for Real Housewives of Chicago to launch centered around Tinsley’s move? Not so fast, you guys. Andy is not on board with this notion.

People writer Dave Quinn tweeted about a recent episode of Andy’s radio show. He wrote, “On @RadioAndySXM this am, @Andy addressed those REAL HOUSEWIVES OF CHICAGO rumors and why a spinoff in the Windy City isn’t coming. ‘We just didn’t find the right casting for Chicago. Whatever casting we did, it wasn’t right and we haven’t gone back to do more. That’s the issue.'”

Alright, we have heard that many times over. However, things can change with time. Maybe there’s more happening in Chicago, especially with Tinsley’s arrival.

Dave followed up with this tweet: “That’s the same story, even with Tinsley Mortimer’s upcoming move there, @Andy said. “If [we] were going to start a new franchise, I just think it would be with someone who had deep roots in Chicago. Who had a whole real, big life in Chicago. If she’s just moving there…” Damn. That’s cold, but he does have a good point.

Then again, Tinsley “not belonging in Chicago” could have been a jump-off point for a series. However, it’s not like Tinsley is a lightning rod on Real Housewives of New York. Ugh, who am I kidding? She definitely brings the least to the show out of all the current cast members. I just really wanted Real Housewives of Chicago to happen.

TELL US- DO YOU WANT REAL HOUSEWIVES OF CHICAGO TO HAPPEN? WOULD IT BE A GOOD IDEA TO LAUNCH THE SHOW IN CONJUNCTION WITH TINSLEY’S MOVE?
