The Seattle version would show that many wealthy are reserved and not interested in displaying it. Not sure how this would come out on one of these shows, but it would offer a different approach, don't you think? I dare the producers to do Seattle. And I would suggest that this approach might just work within the format.

The only problem is that when the housewives don't act like disgusting nouveau riche slimeballs, nobody watches.

I would take it as a compliment if your city hasn't been the subject of this show.

There's nothing "real" about these housewives.

I think Dallas, Las Vegas, or Scottsdale would work well. Just like Orange County, Beverly Hills, NYC, NJ, DC, Atlanta, and Miami, these three cities have a reputation for having flashy wealthy people and it would be very easy for a TV show to really play up the stereotypes. Long Island, San Diego, Silicon Valley, and Nashville might work too.

I don't see the show working in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, or Houston. There are tons of rich people in those cities, but they're not perceived as being wild or over the top. I think the wealthy people of Chicago, San Francisco, and Houston are generally thought of as being rather normal, and Boston's wealthy population is generally stereotyped as being WASPs and well-mannered/boring.

But in all seriousness, I hope no other city/county/state has their name associated with The Real Housewives. I don't hate any place enough to wish that upon them.

Ha ha, I second that. Those women are downright wild.

But if we must I hope they send it to Dallas.

I would agree, I mean I know Chicago has tons of rich people in the city and especially the north shore, but I don't see them as acting as stupid and embarassing as the ones on the show. Then again, I'm assuming that a vast majority of the rich housewives in NJ, Atlanta, OC and wherever else don't act as stupid as the ones they managed to dig up for the show.

I'm sure if you tried hard you could find them in almost any city with a critical mass.

I'd certainly pass on them coming to Chicago though, it's just embarassing. Look what all these shows have done for the reputation of New Jersey? Between the Housewives, the mob crap and Jersey Shore it's just silly. I know people from Jersey, obviously they're not all like that.
