Andy Cohen Says Bravo Nearly Had A Real Housewives Of Chicago — Find Out Why It Never Happened!

During Tuesday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen revealed that he and Bravo producers once considered adding the Windy City of Chicago to be part of the Real Housewives franchises.

The topic was brought up when when guest Jenny McCarthy, an Illinois native, asked Cohen, “Why isn’t there a Chicago Housewives?,” according to PEOPLE.

“Oh that’s a good question. We cast there once and we just didn’t get it right,” Cohen said, to McCarthy’s shock. “Yeah, it’s true.”

“We know how to cut bitches!” McCarthy joked.

Back in November 2016, Cohen dishes on the Real Housewives shows that could have been. “There are a lot of cities that we’ve cast in. People don’t know this,” Andy told Access Hollywood at the time.

So where did Bravo look for potential Housewives? “We’ve cast in Greenwich, Connecticut, San Francisco, the wine country. We’ve cast all over the place. We have cast in Houston, where we didn’t wind up doing it, so there have been versions that never made it,” said Andy.

Current Real Housewives series includes: Orange County, New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, Beverly Hills, Potomac and Dallas. D.C. and Miami were cancelled by the network.

Internationally, the series has launches globally in: France, Hungary, Athens (Greece), Vancouver and Toronto (Canada), Melbourne and Sydney (Australia), Auckland (New Zealand), Cheshire (England), and most recently Johannesburg (South Africa). Last year, NBCInternational gave the greenlight for Asia's first installment with The Real Housewives of Bangkok.
