Hey, what is Joanna Krupa of Real Housewives of Miami doing on Ladies of London? Did she move to London? Let me just Google it. Oh wait, that isn’t Joanna. I can’t be the only person that thought that Caprice, the Caprice — with one name, like Madonna — looked exactly like Joanna of Real Housewives of Miami, can I? And she's not the only one. Most of the Ladies of London cast has Real Housewives lookalikes.
The Real Housewives of London, sorry, Ladies of London marries everything Americans are obsessed with: The Real Housewives and England (if it can be related to Kate Middleton, we automatically love it). Bravo has figured out the magic formula: take all of the good things about Real Housewives — relationship problems, tabloid drama, money issues, and status — and move it across the pond to London, where posh and Victoria Beckham mean two different things. Here you will find the same drama as Real Housewives, but with a touch more class, because as Countess Luann De Lesseps taught us, money can’t buy you class. However, living in London, apparently, can.
But the plot lines aren’t the only similarities between these two franchises. The women of Ladies of London each bear a striking resemblance to a housewife from one city or another. Check out the Ladies of London cast’s doppelgängers of the women from the Real Housewives franchise.
Caprice Bourret and Joanna Krupa
Each time I see Caprice (her last name is Bourret, FYI) on screen, I swear it is Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna. Caprice and Joanna are both models and have each judged on Next Top Model (Britain and Poland, respectively).
Noelle Reno and Dina Manzo
Let’s all take a moment to say thank you to the Bravo gods for bringing Dina Manzo back into our lives. Even though Noelle isn’t technically a lady of London (she is from Seattle, originally) she and Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Dina Manzo sure do look alike. According to Bravo, both women have founded their own brands, Noelle co-founded cashmere fashion brand Degrees of Fashion, while Dina founded her philanthropy, Project Ladybug.
Caroline Stanbury and Kristen Taekman
A lot of this one has to do with the hair, but Real Housewives of New York newbie Kristen Taekman, and Ladies of London superstar, Caroline Stanbury look like they could be related. Although something tells me Caroline wouldn't be so eager to travel to the middle-of-nowhere, Montana like Kristen was on RHONY.
Marissa Hermer and Brandi Glanville
Did you know that Ladies of London’s Marissa is originally from California? If this whole British citizenship thing doesn’t work out and she decides to return stateside, she would fit right in with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, especially because she already looks like one of the stars, Brandi.
Juliet Angus and Heather Dubrow
While I think that Ladies of London’s Juliet and Real Housewives of Orange County’s Heather do look similar, I think that seeing these women interact with others on TV only makes them seem more alike. Both women have large personalities and really know how to deliver great one-liners to the camera.
Annabelle Neilson and Cindy Barshop
Okay, this one is a bit of a stretch. But can anyone really compare to Ladies of London star Annabelle? Cindy, the Real Housewives of New York star who brought us Completely Bare, was the closest resemblance to the London socialite.
Julie Montagu and Alexia Echevarria
As far as I am concerned, Julie (the most royal one) on Ladies of London and Alexia on Real Housewives of Miami might be a Tia and Tamera from Sister, Sister, waiting to happen.
