Prepare to meet The Real Housewives of Dallas, Bravo fans. A source confirms to E! News that the newest addition to the hit franchise will in fact be set in Dallas. In March, Bravo announced a show with the working title Ladies of Dallas was in the works. Filming a show under a different name and then changing to Real Housewives is not anything new, it happened with The Real Housewives of New York City, which had its first season filmed as Manhattan Moms.

The description for Ladies of Dallas from the network: "From glamorous galas to scintillating scandals, and supersized spending habits, life in the elite tier of the Dallas social scene is hard to crack, and even harder to maintain. Whether driven by vanity, personal validation, or career advancement, these Lone Star ladies all share the same goal- to climb the social ladder and stay on top.

Sure sounds like The Real Housewives of Dallas.

Cohen recently teased that there could be a new Housewives series when he stopped by the Sirius XM show Reality Checked With Amy Phillips, and said there could be a new city "sooner than you think."

Dallas joins The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Orange County, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Real Housewives of New York City. International versions airing on Bravo include The Real Housewives of Melbourne and The Real Housewives of Cheshire. Previous shows in the franchise include The Real Housewives of Miami, which aired for two seasons, and The Real Housewives of D.C., which only aired one season.

Will the Real Housewives of Dallas be able to join the ranks of long-running Real Housewives shows? Time will tell.

(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
