It’s official – I’m Teresa Giudice levels in love love love with Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. The mashup series featuring women across the Real Housewives universe truly has me grinning from ear to ear every episode. The mashup seems like a natural fit — a bunch of OGs taking over Turks and Caicos and bonding about their reality TV experience. They break the fourth wall and still throw a good amount of shade back and forth (Kenya Moore is on the cast, after all). And for being Bravo’s first go-around at a Housewives’ crossover, it’s hitting the mark perfectly.
RHUGT gets down to the root of what made the franchise so alluring in the first place — it’s about female friendships among powerful, wealthy women. But this is on an entirely new level. We get to see an all-star cast that epitomizes everything great about Real Housewives vacations. Ramona Singer is an absolute nightmare, but for some reason, significantly more naked than she’s ever been on Real Housewives of New York.
Kyle Richards is downing margaritas and cracking jokes with women who aren’t afraid to dig into the real issues, unlike some of her co-stars on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The tension between Tre and Melissa Gorga, while subdued, is always there, as it always has been on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. And all of this is going down in an insanely beautiful mansion as the ladies enjoy the best food, excursions, and shenanigans Turks and Caicos has to offer.

In fact, if you were interested (which you probably are if you clicked on this story), People reports that the RHUGT villa is a whopping $11.5 million property and growing. Triton Luxury Villa has been open since 2017 and is the epitome of wealth. It’s an almost too picturesque location to watch the Ramonacoaster pee her pants or Luann de Lesseps straddle the concierge during a game of Twister shots. The house has 7 bedrooms (one being the bunk bed situation shared by MelGo and Kyle) and 8 bathrooms. And in 2022, the owner plans on adding more guest bungalows to house even more guests to feature 11 bedrooms.
If you’re looking to live it up RHUGT style, you have to have a fat wallet. A night at Trighton will cost you between $10,000 to $22,000, and rates will probably increase as the villa expands. The luxury home, which was bought in 2019 for the $11.5 million price tag, includes butlers, chefs, and housekeeps for an experience I imagine is a bit similar to being in Kathy Hilton’s home.
It is funny to think that the ladies of Season 1 get to stay in such an expensive place, considering RHUGT Season 2 was filmed at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires estate for free. Clearly, Mauricio Umansky’s real estate hookups do not play. But it definitely makes for an envious locale to watch some of our fav Real Housewives wreak havoc and party it up.
