Bravo Adds New Clause To Real Housewives Contracts, Ladies Forced To Bring Drama


According to a new report, the story lines for The Real Housewives are going to be put to the test by the network. It sounds like Bravo executives have been listening to viewers, who are sick of fake and boring story lines and women that join the show just to hawk and promote their products.  Naughty But Nice Rob reports that all of the ladies will have a new clause added in their contracts, and if they don’t bring the drama, they will be fired!

“Now ladies are being offered only 8 week contracts. If they don’t deliver the drama in the first few weeks of taping they will be dropped,” a Bravo insider tells the site. “In the past, cast members have promised the world, even getting married and having a baby. But once filming starts all those promises go away and instead the cast focuses on selling their dull products. But no more!”

“Bravo has got [sic] super smart. They wont be followed by false promises anymore. If the ladies don’t deliver the drama fast, they will be cut,” one cast member tells Rob.

How do you feel about Bravo adding this to the contracts?

  1. I feel like this is possibly already in action. I think I read an article somewhere that Danielle Gregorio was supposed to be a full time OC Housewife, but due to the fact she was incredibly boring whilst filming, they decided to drop her and reduce her role.

    1. Hi Harry

      Yes, that’s very true! Danielle wasn’t very confrontational like her best friend Lizzie. Notice how she didn’t really say much when Lizzie and Vicki were exchanging attitudes? If she did, then she would’ve probably been a full time. The only known feud that will possibly be on camera is with Tamra.

  2. Too many loves have been hurt because of the drama. Too many divorces; one suicide. I can no longer tolerate the craziness. Why don’t they just drop the Housewives franchise.

  3. I’ve been a loyal follower of the Real Housewives since I started randomly came upon season 1 of RHOC on Slice, in Canada. However, the show seems to be drifting further and further away from reality and more towards scripted, not to mention forced and poorly rehearsed, drama! If I want to watch a drama, I can tune into reruns of Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, as well as the plethora of scripted shows available on Netflix. What I liked about RH was that it provided viewers with a glimpse into the lives of catty women with more money than they knew what to do with. The drama was much more real (i.e. Teresa flipping a table). Now it all seems forced. For example, I hated RHONY’s bookgate fight, as well as RHOM’s bride (and bridesmaid) wars. It just seems forced and petty. I hope that Bravo returns to a more organic product as I don’t see this franchise lasting too much longer. I still watch it, but I enjoy it much less than some of the original seasons.

  4. Wow, really? Insisting on drama will only encourage fabricated storylines like someone who is dating a man who isn’t interested in marriage or even sex (maybe he’s gay?) or creating fake boyfriends the viewer never sees or having a cancer scare or thinking about getting pregnant via in-vitro fertilization (even though she’s single) . . . and, oh my, one might even be tempted to fake the death of her longtime canine companion. In short, this stance by Bravo will only encourage more made up BS.

    The Housewives franchise needs to get back to what attracted us to the franchise in the first place: elegant women leading privileged lives. They need to put an end to the back-stabbing, bitchy behavior with occasional violence–which, of course, we all know Bravo doesn’t endorse. After all, if I want to see everyday drama, I need look no further than my own life.

    Bravo, wake up! Entertain us with things we don’t see everyday. Please.

  5. How about a clause that says no more physical violence between housewives? I think that would be a better idea.

  6. Bravo says they’re listening to viewers? Yeah, sure. How do you distinguish between fake drama and forced drama? I don’t think they’re listening at all.

  7. I’m not sure if this is true or not. I hope not because it says they don’t want fake or boring drama… BUT it says to bring the drama! Then THAT would be fake and boring. I understand the whole product placement thing you don’t want it to be a season long infomercial but it is good to see them work and do other things besides drink and argue all the time!

  8. Not hawking their products on the show is a great idea. Bringing on fake drama for the sake of a story line …ridiculous!

  9. I think it’s the producers dragging the fake and boring story lines on and and on. I wish they would stop with the flash backs all the time. They’re starting to do that on Below Deck. It’s annoying.
