Ever since Andy Cohen announced a special episode of Watch What Happens Live featuring the kids of Housewives, there’s been drama. The show will feature Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, Noelle Robinson and Kairo Whitfield from the Real Housewives of Atlanta; Frankie Catania, Gia Giudice and Albie & Chris Manzo from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Also, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Briana Culberson and Shane Keough and Real Housewives of New York’s Victoria de Lesseps and Avery Singer will be thrown in the mix. And last but not least, newbie Brooks Marks from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City will be there too. So there’s definitely a variety of old and new, with plenty of OGs making a return.
But apparently, some of the wives were not happy that their kids were left off the list and made a call to Daddy Andy to complain. Andy said it was someone with daughters, which removes NeNe Leakes from the suspect list (even though she would’ve been a good contender). It was a bit of a red flag that no Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kids were featured, but Lisa Rinna totally owned it and admitted it wasn’t her calling the network. We know that her daughters Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle Hamlin are busy working on becoming the next Kardashians anyway.
The signs were pointing to Kyle Richards as one of the culprits, as she does have four daughters. However, according to Page Six, Kyle has pulled a Kenya Moore and jumped on the “it wasn’t me” bandwagon. Kyle posted a screenshot of a Page Six story about two housewives complaining with the song “I Didn’t Do It & It Wasn’t Me” by Big Bang Boom on her Instagram story. But it does beg the question — were Farrah Aldjufrie, Alexia Umansky, Sophia Umansky and little Portia Umansky asked to be on the show at all? Their OG status would at least warrant them an invitation in my book. Odds are they were all busy doing something and couldn’t make it. We’ll just have to wait for RHOBH to start in May to get our next look at the whole Umansky clan.
If I had to put money on it, I’d say Shannon Beador, Jill Zarin and Danielle Staub are the biggest suspects. They all are the type to call Andy and complain, and I’m sure it wasn’t the first time. But also Jaqueline Laurita could’ve been mad that Ashlee Holmes didn’t get a call. Her brawl with Danielle that ended in the hair pull heard around the world was surely enough to warrant her an invite.

Aside from the RHOBH omissions, the lineup seems pretty fair and entertaining enough. I’m mostly excited to get an update on the Manzo’s strip club car wash plans. And to get Gia’s opinion on the depressing song she wrote for Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga going viral TikTok. And, of course, to get a glimpse at the No. 1 kid in the group Briana, who has always been the level-headed version of Vicki Gunvalson that RHOC needed. At least Briana was included on this — we know Vicki was already throwing a fit for not being included in the upcoming All-Stars spinoff. No need for her to have two reasons to be pissed off at Andy.
