The Real Housewives of Orange County was the original. Beverly Hills might be one of the most buzzed about (right, Brandi Glanville?). So it only makes sense that Bravo might look to the golden coast once more for its next Real Housewives installment.
And that's exactly why rumors are swirling that Bravo is ramping up for The Real Housewives of Santa Barbara, claiming the show has been recruiting "socially prominent, wealthy women in the plush seaside city" including "at least one prominent divorcee."
But don't count your
chickens Adrienne Maloof or Camille Grammer-esque divas before they're hatched cast. Because Bravo is nixing premature talk on which city they'll mine for housewives next:
"Completely not true," a Bravo rep reveals to E! News about whether they're currently casting a Santa Barbara franchise.
So where will Real Housewives strike next? Only time—plus a few flipped tables, some country club catfights and an onslaught of Chardonnay shipments—will tell!
