Is The Real Housewives franchise coming to an end – well, it certainly isn’t a priority for bravo anymore, and to prove it all the Housewives pictures have been removed from the walls of the network.
“Bravo wants to focus on the future not the past. The shows still get good ratings but with the exception of Atlanta, it is past its prime. Plus, they are all so tacky it is very hard to get premiere advertisers,” a close source tells NAUGHTY GOSSIP.
The first version The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered in 2006; its success resulted in spin-off series located in New York City and Atlanta in 2008; New Jersey in 2009; Washington, D.C. and Beverly Hills in 2010; and Miami in 2011.
International versions are broadcast by several television channels worldwide; the first version The Real Housewives of Athens premiered in 2011, and was followed by Me’usharot (The Real Housewives of Israel) in 2011, The Real Housewives of Vancouver in 2012, Les Vraies Housewives (The Real French Housewives of Hollywood) in 2013, and The Real Housewives of Melbourne in 2014. England’s version, The Real Housewives of Cheshire is set to premiere in 2015.
