Basically every reality show you once loved has done an all-stars season. Every reality show except for The Real Housewives, that is. Picture it: Vicki Gunvalson, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice and a mess of other women mixing it up. The wine! The one-liners! The wine! Oh, we said that already? Well, there would be a lot of wine, naturally. There would have to be. Each lady would need four bottles of rosé and champagne on hand at all times.
Of course the topic of a Real Housewives All-Stars series has come up before. "Wouldn't that be a great, great show? Oh my god," Vicki told us last year. Would she do it? "Absolutely."
OK, so one lady is basically waiting for the call, here's the rest of the pitch to make everybody's jobs easier.
THE LADIES: We've seen from The Real Housewives of New York City this season that eight women can be tough to balance, but when there are this many personalities, no offense to anybody currently on RHONY, they will be able to handle themselves and create enough scenes.
*Danielle and Brandi would be surprise special guests flown in for drama, obviously.
THE LOCATION: Real Housewives are always at their best/most dramatic when they are out of their element on a supposedly relaxing trip. Take the ladies and put them on a glamorous yacht (heck, you can make a Below Deck spinoff from this too) for two months, making stops in boozy exotic locales because that's the way to do it. You need about two months for the Housewives to shake off any possible drama blocks they may have installed to play nice with the other ladies. You've seen Celebrity Wife Swap, the stars are always on their best behavior and very mindful of the camera. We want Wife Swap level of shenanigans, thank you.
There you have it. We'll be waiting for this to become greenlit, thank you.
