The above ad was listed on Craigslist, San Francisco edition on March 4.
Is this real? If Bravo and/or Andy Cohen is behind this and the ad is casting for a San Francisco franchise of the Real Housewives, I have one question… Are you serious? Really.
Bravo/Andy is pushing the RH franchise with airing the Real Housewives of Miami in place of the Real Housewives of New York. Lea Black said in a recent interview (http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/02/20/2074197/getting-real-with-lea-black-one.html) that she didn’t tell anyone that she was filming the RHOM and admitted to being on the show only after it aired… she wasn’t sure if the show was actually going to make it on screen, which happens a lot. Just like movies, TV shows are filmed and produced, but for many reasons just don’t make that final step and are never aired. So, Lea was cautious and played her cards close and didn’t say anything until the she saw herself on her flatscreen.
With that in mind, the Real Housewives of Miami was on shaky ground until it was decided that there was ‘just too much excellent footage’ of the RHONY and the editors needed more time to fit all that footage into twelve shows. Luckily, Bravo had Miami prepared to fill New York’s slot immediately.
IMO, this San Francisco ad is a fake. Would Bravo/Andy really, really go ahead with another HW show knowing that they are riding the crest of the wave and are very close to jumping the shark… would they take that chance? But, that’s just my opinion… and there’s always a chance that the ad is an authentic request by Andy/Bravo for one more addition to the franchise. If it is a legitimate notice Bravo will be losing viewers. I’m usually right about these predictions…
