There are always rumors that The Real Housewives franchise will be expanding to a new city. This time it has been reported that a local Oklahoma production company is in talks with Bravo about bringing The Housewives to Oklahoma! Oklahoma’s Own reports, ‘A local production company is already in talks with producers at Bravo, which is the network that has launched six “Real Housewives” series since 2006 including Beverly Hills, New York and Atlanta. Thursday was the first day producers started screening potential housewives in Oklahoma.’
Several women from the area have met at the Gaillardia Country Club to discuss joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Oklahoma. “There have been so many times in my life I have said, ‘Oh, my gosh. My life should be sitcom,'” Eva Aranda, a potential ‘Real Housewife said.’ “So when this came up, I said, ‘You see, my life could be a sitcom.'”
“I think that being in the Bible Belt in the central United States, a lot of women feel their job is to be a mother, a wife and that’s it, and I feel that’s just part of being a woman. There’s so much more,” Aranda said. “This will show that we’re not on horses and living in Teepees, we do live a glamorous life.”
“You can expect to see some real drama, we are very real here, and nobody puts up facades, and nobody tries to be something they’re not,” Carol Hefner, a potential ‘Real Housewife’ said. Carol is married to Robert Hefner IV and has five children.
“I think it’s time that people see Oklahoma City on the big stage,” Hefner said. “We live well. We live big, We are spicy, fun. We keep it real and I think that we could really show some of those other housewives how to live.”
Producer Annette Colbert-Latham took to the Oklahoma Housewives idea to Bravo execs in L.A. and New York earlier this year, and she says they’re interested. So for two days, her team has talked to about 21 women, who mainly live in Nichols Hills, Edmond and Gaillardia. Colbert-Latham’s team plans to put together their video of the group in the next couple of weeks and send it off to Bravo to see if the show will be picked up.
