Bravo seems to be rocking the "Real Housewives" franchise with possible cast changes and news that the shows are heading to daytime TV.
Could Vanessa Bryant be the newest addition to Bravo’s “Real Housewife” frachise?
EgyptSaidSo.com reports that there’s talk of adding Kobe Bryant’s wife to the cast next season for “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
This wouldn’t be the first high-profile casting for the franchise. The Real Housewives made headlines when it was discovered that they would be bringing in singer-songwriter Kandi Burruss to replace DeShawn Snow in the second season.
And there’s buzz from SandraRose.com that Atlanta might do a little re-casting, too. Supposedly, a reliable source said that Sheree Whitfield is on her way out so that Bravo can bring in a new housewife next season. The insider said, Sheree isn’t stirring up enough drama to remain an asset to the show.
All we have to say to that is: Didn’t they see the first episode of season two?
Meanwhile, NBC will bringing all the fabulous foolishness to their daytime lineup next fall as the “Real Housewives” series move into syndication. It’s speculated that all four series (Orange County, Atlanta, New York and New Jersey) will make the move to daytime.
"’The Real Housewives’ is a very successful franchise, especially popular with women," NBC local media president John Wallace stated in a press release. "And by coming to broadcast television stations in daytime, this series will appeal to a new audience that is looking for something that stands out from the pack."
This is great news for the housewives, right? Not really. According to FreddyO.com, none of the wives will be getting paid for the extra airplay because they’re not covered by an actors’ unions.
At news of their potential syndication, one of the wives went off!
“This is some bull shit, we’ve been fighting their as* for the longest to keep the show from going to syndication without us making a dime,” the unidentified woman told Freddy O. “Damn, we not getting a dime and they making all the money. WOW! They can play the show forever and we will never get a check that aint right.”
