People reports that Bravo has announced that The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is coming. Is this the version of The Real Housewives franchise meant for Disney Junior? How are these ladies supposed to get into dramatic meltdown mode without the benefit of alcohol and everyone supposedly happily married? Is Andy Cohen ok? Where exactly are we supposed to harvest the appropriate drunk psycho lady vs. cat memes from with this?
In a revelation at BravoCon (even serial killers must have a con by now), Bravo HBIC Andy Cohen announced that the Mormons of Salt Lake City will now join the denizens of the other “Real Housewives” cities in being embarrassed by some of their more attention-whoring residents.
“We’ve always tried to choose a city that has completely unique personalities and we also try to throw a little curveball now and then. Pick somewhere you weren’t expecting,” said Cohen. “We are very excited to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah!”
He went on to address how there can be any drama in Salt Lake City other than that one scary great-uncle we don’t talk about because he had six child brides.
Cohen promised fans that the new location would provide plenty of unexpected entertainment.
“You didn’t see it coming but I have to tell you, in Utah, you have the majesty of the mountains, the Mormon religion, an exclusive community of people who have very successful businesses who live in their own universe,” he said. “It is gorgeous and I think you’re going to be really surprised and intrigued by the group of women we’ve found.”
Here’s the official synopsis from the network:
In an official announcement statement regarding the new installment, Bravo explained, “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City takes viewers into an undiscovered world that is about so much more than religion, although the Mormon church is undeniably ingrained in the culture. In the majestic mountains of Utah is a hidden social circle made up of successful women who have created their own paradise filled with luxury homes, shopping sprees and multi-million-dollar businesses and brands. With Hollywood’s exclusive Sundance Film Festival in their backyards, these Type-A power-brokers are accustomed to rubbing elbows with A-listers and what party list you are on means everything. They have mastered running wildly successful enterprises by day and enjoy après ski at the finest resorts by night, all the while raising extraordinary and unconventional families.
Yes, can’t wait for the drama involved when one lady gets turned down by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir after her bad audition so she drowns her sorrows in some Crystal Light.
