Casey Wilson & Danielle Schneider Discuss Their "Hero Worship" of the Real Housewives
The superfans reveal what inspires them to poke fun at the 'Wives on their new podcast, Bitch Sesh.
In case you haven't heard, Hotwives star/all-around funny lady Casey Wilson is a Real Housewives superfan. And the same can be said of her pal, Hotwives creator and co-star Danielle Schneider. So it was kind of a no-brainier when they decided to team up for their podcast, Bitch Sesh: A Real Housewives Breakdown. The idea was an extension of their own private Housewives viewing sessions, in which they would gab about the series with their BFFS. But if you think they are feeling brave about the hilarious opinions they express on the weekly chat fest, think again.
"I'm terrified and I live in fear. And I think both of us by nature are sensitive people, we don't like to hurt people's feelings but for some reason with this cross-section of entertainment we have let loose," Casey told The Daily Dish. "And we're terrified, and we've asked our fans specifically not to tag any of the Housewives to try and hide from them."
The two women launched the podcast just as the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiered earlier this month. It features the women and their friends and guests digging deep into a number of hysterical subjects — from which of the Househusbands they find the hottest, to why the Terry Dubrow loves leather jackets so much, to their obsession with Kyle Richards' boutique Kyle by Alene Too. "We speak very brazenly on the podcast," Danielle added, "But if one of [the Housewives] was to say a thing to us, I think we would apologize immediately and maybe say we never said it. Even though we say these things, we also say them with love. We really do come at it from a place of we adore these shows, we adore these people. We think of them as our friends on some level."
So why Beverly Hills? "Danielle believes that [Beverly Hills is the crown jewel] but I disagree, but it was more of a timing thing to be honest," Casey said. The two hosts may disgaree on RHOBH's place in the Housewives canon, but it's clear they truly love the franchise as a whole. "I would say like mid-sentence we sometimes change, so I think that even if one of [the 'Wives] were to get wind, I think the next week they would find us praising them highly," Danielle said. "So I do think it does come from a place of love and hero worship."
And, yes, that means Casey and Danielle are both counting down the days until the January 17 premiere of The Real Housewives of Potomac. "I'm very excited about Potomac because I grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, which is a hop, skip, and a jump from Potomac. And I do know the area and I'm so excited," Casey explained. "I think it looks really fun, and honestly, I was more jazzed about that preview than some stuff I've seen on Beverly Hills. It's just looks great. I feel like the women are really bringing it to Potomac. I'm ready for these women; I feel like I know them."
With so many Housewives cities to discuss in the new year, it's probably only a matter of time before one of the 'Wives actually stops by the show, right? (For the record, Casey and Danielle aren't picky about who they book as a guest.) "I mean, any and all. We're not choosy, as long as they have a sense of humor about themselves and the show," Danielle explained. "So none of them," Casey joked, before offering up her preferred Bitch Sesh guests. "Personally, I'd rather it just be our girlfriends and comedians coming on sharing their thoughts," she said. "Because the nice thing is, if someone comes on then we have to really like — I'll speak for myself, I'm not Barbra Walters; I can't ask the tough questions. I just like being able to say what we say and calling it a night."
