Luann de Lesseps Cast In Peacock’s Upcoming ‘Real Housewives’ All-Stars Series; Filming Is Set To “Begin Shooting In Turks And Caicos In April,” Sources Say!

According to sources, Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps has been cast in the upcoming Peacock limited series, Real Housewives All-Stars, according to a report by Page Six

The series is set to begin shooting in Turks and Caicos in April. Insiders share that more than one cast member from each city could be invited.

The news comes after PEOPLE reported that a Real Housewives All-Stars series is in development at NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock. 

Sources shared earlier this month that Bravo has been toying with the idea of a Real Housewives “all-stars" spinoff for quite some time, with talk ramping up when Peacock entered the mix. Some women were contacted in late 2019/early 2020 to test the temperature on the idea, which would see cast members -- potentially both past and present -- from various cities take a trip together.

“The trips are always the most memorable part of any season of Housewives, so it makes total sense they’d want to do this,” the source told Entertainment Tonight. “If the women want to do it is another question.”

Sources told the outlet that the original idea was to turn a week or weeks-long getaway into a limited series, which could be repeated with new women in new locations if successful.

Production on the potential show might look a lot like the fifth season of Bravo’s Summer House, which shot for six weeks straight with cameras on the cast 24/7 under strict COVID-19 protocols. Bravo is replicating that format with Winter House, a spinoff set to go into production in the coming weeks which will feature cast members from both Summer House and Southern Charm.

The Jasmine Brand was the first to report the news about the new limited series. While it’s not clear who will take part in the series, the outlet reports that “eight to ten ladies will go on a trip and stay in a home together at a tropical location.”

Meanwhile, casting details about the upcoming series has been revealed courtesy via The Blast.

Reporter Anthony Dominic is sharing more details about the spin-off. Sources reveal to Dominic that producers are reportedly looking at adding Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Melissa Gorga, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Teresa Giudice.

He tweeted, “I’m told the Housewives spin-off will likely film for 1 week in April. The location will be Mexico or somewhere tropical. Potomac not expected due to filming overlap. Names I’ve heard being discussed are Cynthia, Melissa G, Kenya, Kyle, Rinna, Ramona, Sonja, Teresa but not final.”

He added, “They want roughly 10 women. Some Housewives are upset because they want Bravo to take their time and let women out of filming their franchise seasons to film this show if they are a star, but as of now Bravo isn’t letting them. #bravotv.”
