Bravo Executive Explains The Difference Between RHOC And RHOBH!

Bravo’s Vice President of Current Production Erica Forstadt explained why The Real Housewives of Orange County and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills feel so different, despite both being California-based shows within the franchise. 

“I mean, it’s like if we had The Real Housewives of New York City and it’s Manhattan and then you had The Real Housewives of Queens or Staten Island. It’s just that they’re far apart, you know? There’s a different vibe of Staten Island or Queens or Manhattan or Brooklyn,” Forstadt said on Bravo's The Daily Dish podcast. “It’s in the same relation of Orange County, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and then even like, Manhattan Beach is different. You know, every area in California, which is a huge state, is different. Orange County is about a two-hour drive from Beverly Hills, at least.” 

“I think that’s what makes these shows so interesting is seeing a different perspective on life and on how they move through it,” she added. 

Forstadt also teased what viewers can expect from the new season of RHOC, which follows the women through the beginning of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

“We had to stop filming Orange County midway through,” she said. “And what’s really interesting is we put down our cameras, but the women picked up their own cameras and started self filming, so we don’t miss a beat at all. We are following it through the entirety of pre-COVID, COVID and where we are now.”
