A new report out this week claims that the next installment of The Real Housewives TV show franchise will be filmed for the first time in a Canadian city. According to The Province, the Slice network has announced that they will be filming The Real Housewives of Vancouver set to air later this year. It is uncertain if this new installment of the franchise will air here in the US but considering Vancouver’s proximity to the US, I would certainly hope we get the option to watch.
The camera is about to be turned on Vancouver society as the Slice network will be delivering to TV The Real Housewives of Vancouver sometime in the next year. It was announced in Toronto yesterday at the Shaw Media’s Upfronts (where TV schedule is presented to advertisers) that a Vancouver edition of the reality TV franchise had been green lit. The fluffy franchise that focuses on mostly rich women who live lives full of private jets, private parties and private information made public began on Bravo in 2006 with the Real Housewives of Orange County. From that batch of blonde bombshells, who are still on the air, it has grown to an international hit with six other stops across the U.S. as well as shows in Greece and Israel … Slice has released no names and, at press time, representatives from the network had not returned calls … One thing is for sure though whoever does agree to be part of this show will have to have some pretty thick skin.
I had no idea that there are Real Housewives shows in Israel and Greece. I mean, it makes sense why the US wouldn’t get to see those shows … but Vancouver is so close, I hope we do get to see this show. I also hope the Vancouver Housewives know how to bring the drama because I’d hate for anyone to be subjected to another horrible season of the show … like we did with The Real Housewives of DC (which, merifully, was canceled after only one season). Ick! A show about Vancouver Housewives has a lot of potential … I guess we’ll have to see what will come from this initial news. What do you Canucks think? Are you excited for a RHOV series?
