Conception[edit]

"From Peyton Place to Desperate Housewives, viewers have been riveted by the fictionalized versions of such lifestyles on television. Now, here is a series that depicts real-life 'desperate' housewives with an authentic look at their compelling day-to-day drama."

—A press release by Bravo, describing the concept of The Real Housewives of Orange County.[1]

The Real Housewives was first announced as one of six reality television series ordered by the American television channel Bravo in May 2005.[2] It was inspired by the scripted soap operas Desperate Housewives and Peyton Place, and would document the lives of upper-class women who "lead glamorous lives in a picturesque Southern California gated community where the average home has a $1.6 million price tag and residents include CEOs and retired professional athletes."[1] The series was renamed The Real Housewives of Orange County in January 2006, and premiered on March 21.[1]

In September 2007, Bravo confirmed the production of the series Manhattan Moms, which would "[follow] an eclectic group of Gotham socialites and their families."[3] However, it was renamed The Real Housewives of New York City in January 2008, becoming the first spin-off from The Real Housewives franchise; it premiered on March 4.[4] The third spin-off The Real Housewives of Atlanta was announced in June,[5] and premiered on October 7.[6] The fourth spin-off The Real Housewives of New Jersey was mentioned in May 2008 before the confirmation of The Real Housewives of Atlanta,[7] although it premiered afterwards on May 12, 2009.[8] The Real Housewives of D.C. was introduced as the fifth spin-off in October 2009,[9] and premiered on August 5, 2010 and ended on October 21, 2010 after one season.[10] The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was introduced as the sixth spin-off in March 2010,[11] and premiered on October 14, 2010.[12] In March 2010, Bravo has ordered a series titled Miami Social Club, which would serve as a reconstruction of the series Miami Social,[13] the series was later re-titled to The Real Housewives of Miami and served as the seventh spin-off in the franchise,[14] and premiered on February 22, 2011.[15] and ended on November 4, 2013 after three seasons.

After the cancellation of The Real Housewives of Miami, it had been almost five years that no new installments had been introduced to the franchise, until Bravo announced two new series on November 11, 2015, The Real Housewives of Potomac as the eighth spin-off and The Real Housewives of Dallas as the ninth.[16] Prior to being announced, The Real Housewives of Potomac was initially titled Potomac Ensemble during its early production[17] and premiered on premiered on January 17, 2016.[18] During early production, The Real Housewives of Dallas, had originally been titled Ladies of Dallas, a potential spin-off series to Ladies of London.[19] The series premiered on April 11, 2016.[20]

Future[edit]

On December 2, 2016, Andy Cohen spoke on the future of the franchise, saying if there were to be a new installment to the franchise that it could be set Nashville. Cohen went on to describe an All Star version that would serve as an end-goal for the series when ratings begin to drop. Cohen stated that an All Stars season would be likely to feature eight housewives with big personalities from each franchise on an island together.[21] Later in December 2016, during an interview with Harry Connick Jr., Cohen stated that they look for cities with strong personalities, and agreed that New Orleans fits that criteria.[22][23]
