Real Housewives Who Deserve a Special More Than Erika Jayne

During BravoCon 2023, Bravo announced that they would release a two-part special aptly named Bet It All on Blonde in honor of Erika Jayne‘s residency tour in Las Vegas. Followers were a bit surprised to hear that the Pretty Mess singer would be gifted a spinoff, especially since her show hasn’t been given five stars. 

Yes, Erika is a force to be reckoned with on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as she often brings the drama, but fans are questioning the judgment of the network, feeling there are way more deserving Real Housewives who could have benefited from their own special. Thanks to her entanglement with Tom Girardi, Erika has not been a fan favorite as of late, so it seems odd that Bravo would bet on her. 

Courting With the Countess

Luann de Lesseps has been a staple on the Real Housewives and has juggled multiple titles, including Countess, cabaret mini-star, and booty call queen. However, she hasn’t always been lucky in love, so the mother of two could do with a dating show.

It would be fun to see multiple men court Luann, most likely hailing from Monaco, Paris, or Saint-Tropez. She could have guest judges come on as well to try and help point her in the right direction. I’m thinking Tom D’Agostino and Jacques Azoulay

Kenya Moore Hair Care

Say it with me, guys, with the drum beat, “Kenya Moore hair care!” But think bigger. Think America’s Next Top Model, but for hair. The show would surround up-and-coming hairstylists using only Kenya’s products.

Each runway show would show off inspiring sleeks lines and bouncy curls. It could all take place in Kenya’s new Atlanta hair spa, just for good measure. The show would be a vision of pageantry, including Kenya’s Moore Vision Media running the show. 

Tre Is for Trouble

Teresa Giudice is such a polarizing Real Housewives star, but imagine her on daytime TV. Honestly, she could be the female version of Jerry Springer.

The mother of four could host a talk show that featured women and their no-good husbands. She’s been married to two losers, so she is definitely qualified to host. Cameras could catch her dolling out advice from the old days, tossing pasta recipes around, and possibly even throwing tables at her own guests. 

Jersey Boys Weekend


We NEED a special featuring a boy’s weekend with the house-husbands of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Between Frank Catania, Joe Gorga, Joe Benigno, Evan Goldschneider, and Bill Aydin, these guys are just too much fun. Think Summer House with an all-out party complete with pocket snacks carried by Evan. The theme could actually be Frank’s bachelor party! The guys would right the world with their talks, rough house, and show that a series can be entertaining without catfights. 

The guys have always had a special bond between them that has not been broken by their wives. The special could show them gathering in Aspen, because who doesn’t want to see mini tan muscle builders on the slick slopes? It would be TV gold. Cameras would catch the Jersey boys rubbing elbows with the whos who of Aspen in their furs while the guys chill out in their jeans and muscle Ts. It is very much a fish-out-of-water story, complete with strippers. 

Look Who’s Coming to Dinner

Personally, I need some Camille Grammer back in my life. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star never missed a good fight and often knew exactly how to stir the pot. Since leaving the series, she has made sure to keep her two cents ready with her snarky social media posts.

The special could have cameras following Camille in a day-in-her-life format as she prepares for a new dinner party each episode. Cameras would watch her host guests, including her former on-point psychic and former co-stars. For viewers, the dinners may feel a bit cringey, but for Camille, that’s just the way it is. 

Camille may be thirsty, but she knows the meaning of entertainment. A series showcasing her innate ability to ruffle her former costar’s feathers could be the hit we need. She could end each episode by dramatically reading one of her mean tweets. Camille is basically a real-life box of chocolate—you never know what you are going to get with her.
