The last 11 years have blessed fans with many iconic Real Housewives stars, but only a handful of the Housewives have been given the reins to their own spin-off: Lisa Vanderpump has Vanderpump Rules and Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky; Kim Zolciak has Don’t Be Tardy; Kandi Burruss had The Kandi Factory, Kandi’s Ski Trip, and Kandi’s Wedding; Caroline Manzo had Manzo’d With Children; NeNe Leakes had I Dream of NeNe, and so the list goes. And as for the next Real Housewife to nab an offshoot show? I don't have that answer. However, I do know which Real Housewives deserve their own spin-off. And yes, names will be named.
So, which Real Housewives should have a Bravo program of their very own? Which Real Housewives should get a chance to try their hand at the spin-off game? Which Housewives should carry the Real Housewives offshoot torch next? (Assuming Bravo doesn't up and decide it’s done gifting Bravolebrities with spin-offs anytime soon, that is.) Let's get to the list of Real Housewives of past and present who could probably handle steering a spin-off ship already. Here are some Real Housewives who deserve their own Bravo series:
1. Erika Girardi Of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
It could be called… Pat the Tour
The premise could be... Erika Jayne goes on tour and the Bravo cameras follow.
2. Shereé Whitfield Of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta
It could be called… Shereé Happened To Customer Service
The premise could be... Shereé visits restaurants with less-than-favorable Yelp reviews and gives them honest feedback. And then, she brings in a team of hospitality experts who then do what they can to fix whatever needs fixing.
3. Dorinda Medley Of The Real Housewives Of New York City
It could be called… Dorinda Makes It Nice & Jolly
The premise could be... Each episode, Dorinda knocks on a fan’s front door, holiday trimmings in tow. Once the surprised fan calms down, Dorinda proceeds to decorate their house for Christmas.
4. Lisa Rinna Of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
It could be called… Rinna Owns It
The premise could be... A cooking show hosted by Lisa and her husband, Harry Hamlin.
5. Karen Huger Of The Real Housewives Of Potomac
It could be called… Karen’s Way Or The Potomac River Freeway
The premise could be... Karen teaches an etiquette class to a group of lucky students.
6. Yolanda Hadid Of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
Yolanda’s spin-off would be a joint spin-off with…
7. Shannon Beador Of The Real Housewives Of Orange County
It could be called… Lemon It Up with Yolanda & Shannon
The premise could be... Yolanda and Shannon travel the world in search of the best lemon.
8. Siggy Flicker Of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey
It could be called… Siggy Says
The premise could be... It’d be a live show where viewers could call in and ask Siggy for advice.
9. Heather Dubrow Of The Real Housewives Of Orange County
It could be called… Welcome Home, Heather
The premise could be... It’d literally just be an in-depth tour of the Dubrows' sprawling Orange County palace. Each episode would be devoted to a room. We need to see this house, dang it.
10. Eileen Davidson Of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
It could be called… Eileen In
The premise could be... It’d be a closer look at Eileen’s present-day soap opera career.
11. LeeAnne Locken Of The Real Housewives Of Dallas
It could be called… Don’t Mess With LeeAnne
The premise could be... Each episode, LeeAnne finds a charity event, and then does what she can to raise more money than the actual event. It’d sort of be like Throwdown with Bobby Flay, but instead of a Food Network personality attempting to out-cook chefs around the country, it’d be LeeAnne competing with charity events. Hey, it’d all be for a good cause.
May the grand tradition of Real Housewives spin-offs continue to flourish, and may any of the 11 Real Housewives listed above be given the opportunity to hold the bejeweled, wine-stained torch.
