It’s all things Bravo in New York City this weekend. The network kicked off the first annual fan convention, BravoCon.

People reports that  almost 100 Bravolebrities showed up at the event. Host Andy Cohen announced the surprising news that a new installment of the Real Housewives franchise is on the way.

And the Winning City is…..

It’s official! The newest Real Housewives will be from Salt Lake City, Utah! Andy touted the unexpected choice as a “curveball,” but promises the city has “unique personalities” that will keep fans glued to the edge of their seats.

“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. It is gorgeous and I think you’re going to be really surprised and intrigued by the group of women we’ve found.”

Bravo remained mum on any details about the new group of women or when fans can expect to see the show premiere. Fans weren’t overly enthused by the news. Many of them noted that Chicago would have been a better choice.

RHOSL Will Be the 10th Installment of Popular Show

The Real Housewives franchise put Bravo on the map. The first installment, The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered in 2006. Despite what RHONY star Ramona Singer thinks, RHOC paved the way for the other installments.

The Real Housewives of New York City and The Real Housewives of Atlanta came two years later, in 2008. Teresa Giudice’s table-flipping ways didn’t premiere until 2009 with The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

One of the show’s first duds, The Real Housewives of D.C. only season aired in 2010. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had more success that same year and graced us with queen Lisa Vanderpump.

Florida tried to get in on the action with The Real Housewives of Miami in 2011, but viewers weren’t interested in Florida men (or women.) The Real Housewives of Potomac and The Real Housewives of Dallas are still going strong after premiering in 2016.

Bravo’s official press statement regarding the upcoming Salt Lake City addition touts the city’s high standards and sense of community.

“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.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of Atlanta and The Real Housewives of Orange County are airing current seasons on Bravo. The other franchises will air their newest seasons in 2020. Keep your eyes on TV Shows Ace for more information on RHOSL as it becomes available.
