SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. 16, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah will be the next state to host a “Real Housewives” a franchise, with the announcement Saturday of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.”
“We’ve always tried to choose a city that has completely unique personalities and we also try to throw a little curveball now and then. Pick somewhere you weren’t expecting,” said executive producer Andy Cohen told People. “We are very excited to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah!”
No timeline was issued for when the show would be produced or debut, except to say it would be in 2020.
Cohen said the location would provide plenty of unexpected entertainment.
“You didn’t see it coming but I have to tell you, in Utah, you have the majesty of the mountains, the Mormon religion, an exclusive community of people who have very successful businesses who live in their own universe,” he said. “It is gorgeous and I think you’re going to be really surprised and intrigued by the group of women we’ve found.”
A news release from Bravo adds to the description of the show:
“‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ takes viewers into an undiscovered world that is about so much more than religion, although the Mormon church is undeniably ingrained in the culture. In the majestic mountains of Utah is a hidden social circle made up of successful women who have created their own paradise filled with luxury homes, shopping sprees and multi-million-dollar businesses and brands. With Hollywood’s exclusive Sundance Film Festival in their backyards, these Type-A power-brokers are accustomed to rubbing elbows with A-listers and what party list you are on means everything.
“They have mastered running wildly successful enterprises by day and enjoy après ski at the finest resorts by night, all the while raising extraordinary and unconventional families. Here perfection is not an aspiration, it’s a mandate. They hold themselves and each other to an extremely high standard and never hold back when things go sideways, but lord knows they are always there for each other when they need it most.”
If the production crew will be shooting at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, that happens Jan. 23 through Feb. 2.
“The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City will be the 10th franchise in the history of “The Real Housewives,” “The Real Housewives of …” Orange County, New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, D.C., Beverly Hills, Miami, Potomac, and Dallas.
