Andy Cohen Dishes On ‘The Real Housewives Of Potomac’ And ‘The Real Housewives Of Dallas’ — Says It Reminds Him Of Early RHOC And RHONY!

Last week, Bravo officially announced that they were expanding their Real Housewives franchise by adding The Real Housewives of Potomac and The Real Housewives of Dallas. Now, executive producer Andy Cohen is sharing new details on what fans can expect from the new Housewives.

"Both Dallas and Potomac remind me of really early Orange County and New York. It reminds me of early Housewives," said Cohen. "It's the way they communicate. It's about how they live their lives, and it's about families. It's very grounded, and it just harkens back to early Housewives for me. Both of them. It's really interesting."

Andy revealed that RHOD has been a long time coming. "We've been tinkering around with Dallas for, I want to say seven years we've been thinking about this. We cast there. We cast in Houston. We didn't get it right in either place," Andy explained. "And then this casting happened, I want to say, maybe a year ago. I don't even know. We thought this could be good."

Andy also acknowledged that Potomac might not be the most well-known region of the United States, but the area's culture is going to have a big impact on the show.

"Potomac, which is so unusual a choice for a location because it's kind of this random location that people don't necessarily identify with specifically, but it means so much to the women that live there, and they have such a clear sense of what it is and what it means and what the rules are and what it's like," Andy said. "And I love these women. They're very affluent. They have strong ties to the community. They're very into etiquette."

Cohen makes it clear that RHOP is not going to be just another Real Housewives of D.C. Reveals that creating RHOP was all about letting this unique group of women shine.

"It was just this group of women. It was this group of women. They just popped. They're stars and they're great," Andy dished. "So we didn't go out saying, 'Oh we want to do another Housewives in the D.C. area.' It was the last thing on our minds, trust me. But then these women emerged, and it was like, they were great. I'm loving that show, and you will, too."

The Real Housewives of Potomac premieres on Sunday, January 17 at 9pm/8c on Bravo!
