Susan Lucci Disagrees With Andy Cohen; Says “I Don’t Think” Real Housewives “Are Modern-Day Soaps”

Soap star legend Susan Lucci disagrees with Andy Cohen that the “Real Housewives” franchise has replaced soap operas. “I don’t think they are the modern-day soaps,” Lucci told Page Six. “There’s no storytelling. There’s a lot of editing. It’s, like, they cut to the chase all the time, and I think it’s different.”

She added that the Bravo reality stars are “great at entertaining,” she reiterated, “I don’t think they’re the same.”

In 2014, Cohen told CBS This Morning, “I think the ‘Housewives’ have replaced the modern-day soap opera in a weird way for a lot of people. Soap operas — scripted soap operas — there’s only a couple on the air right now, and truth is stranger than fiction.”

The Real Housewives series first made its debut in 2006 with the Real Housewives of Orange County. The Bravo franchise has since expanded in New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, D.C., Beverly Hills, Miami, Potomac, Dallas, and Salt Lake City.

The franchise has also expanded internationally in Canada (Vancouver, Toronto), United Kingdom (Cheshire), Australia (Melbourne, Sydney), France, Hungaria, Greece (Athens), New Zealand (Auckland), South Africa (Johannesburg), Asia (Bangkok) and Italy (Naples).
