Andy Cohen Makes a Surprising Reveal About The Real House Husbands Show

The WWHL host revealed a shocking update about those Real House Husbands rumors.

By Shannon Raphael

In the years since The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered in 2006, numerous other Real Housewives shows have debuted, showcasing the lifestyles of glamorous groups of women.

However, according to Andy Cohen, there was a time when viewers almost saw a group of men at the center of a Real Housewives–inspired show.

During the San Francisco leg of his book tour for The Daddy Diaries: The Year I Grew Up, Andy revealed that men were once cast to be part of a House Husbands show, but it didn’t work out for one very important reason.

“Here’s the thing: Men are very boring,” Andy explained during his stop in the California city, per SFGate. “Early on, we cast The House Husbands of Orange County, and it was a snooze.”

The House Husbands idea may not have taken off, but The Real Housewives franchise clearly has.

There are currently 10 Real Housewives shows on the air, including The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Orange County, The Real Housewives of New York City, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Potomac, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, The Real Housewives of Miami, and The Real Housewives of Dubai.

Though Bravoholics often speculate about whether another city will soon be at the center of a Real Housewives show, Andy shut down the rumors during a broadcast of his SiriusXM show, Andy Cohen Live, back in April 2023.

“I mean, I think we’re good,” the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host said about the prospect of adding new cities to the lineup. “We’re not developing any.”

He reiterated that sentiment during his book tour stop in San Francisco. 

“And I would say right now, I kinda feel like we’re good,” he shared. “We have 10 franchises.”
