Q: Spatek2 wants to know why we cast single women if the show is called "Housewives"?
A: Of the two new friends of the Housewives, Dana is engaged and lives with her fiancée. Brandi is indeed single. So yes, we are not exactly matching the title, but in the end, if someone has a great personality (like Kim or Brandi), we still think there’s value to having them be part of the show.

Q: LancasterPA asks why would the Sacramento Kings’ fans potentially be angry with Adrienne?
A: We thought we explained fans' reactions, but if you're still wondering, maybe we didn't. When a sports team leaves a city to move to another city, the fans of the first city often feel angry and betrayed that a team they have rooted for over decades has decided to go. I remember when I was in college when the NFL team the Baltimore Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984. There was so much fear of fan outrage that the move literally happened in the middle of the night. (I know that not because I’m a sports nut, just that I was in college in Indiana at the time.) Also, the Sacramento Kings are the only professional team in the city -- so are fans invested? You bet!

Q: Rae777 wants to know how often we interview the ladies and do we wait till the season ends before we do it?
A: We interview the ladies all throughout the season. It's just impossible to wait till the end of the season, because we need interview bites to edit early episodes.

That's it for this week. I hope you enjoyed tonight’s episode. As always, feel free to write in questions and comments that I will answer next week.
