The Real Housewives franchise could be going political. And, no, Real Housewives of D.C. isn't returning. Rather, Kellyanne Conway would be on Real Housewives, if Bravo's Andy Cohen had his way. During a Tuesday appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Cohen expressed how much he deeply wants and needs for Conway, President Donald Trump's counselor, to become a Housewife.
"I’ve been saying for a year — I was calling all of the debates Housewives reunions, because they were," Cohen said. "There were parallels to the Housewives and a lot of things that happened during the election. There are so many, and Kellyanne Conway, I am begging her to just consider a spot on the Housewives if she gets bored."
One of the many reasons Cohen thinks Conway would fit in so well is because of her "alternative facts," obviously referring to when Conway said that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer gave "alternative facts" about the size of the crowd at Trump's inauguration after he claimed that "this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period."
As Conway told NBC's Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, "You're saying it's a falsehood. And they're giving — Sean Spicer, our press secretary — gave alternative facts." Todd responded to her now famous statement by saying, "Alternative facts aren't facts, they are falsehoods."
By the way, Conway's "alternative facts" is Cohen's "favorite statement ever made in the history of ever." He told Meyers, "She'd be amazing, because 'alternative facts' is, I am waiting for [the Housewives] to bust it out. I'm taping the Beverly Hills reunion in a few weeks and I'm waiting for Lisa Rinna to be like, 'Well, no, that's an alternative fact.'"
He's right. That sounds like something any of the Housewives might say when attempting to defend themselves. The Watch What Happens Live host also said Conway reminds him of Real Housewives of D.C.'s Michaele Salahi, especially because they both give round about answers. "She also actually really looks like Michaele Salahi," Cohen added.
There's no denying Conway would add even more drama to an already dramatic franchise, but the chances of her actually becoming a Housewife are probably pretty slim to none. Though, with the Trump administration, you never know what could happen.
