Andy Cohen Teases ‘RHOM’ Season 4, Shares Updates on ‘Real Housewives of Miami’ Reboot
Andy Cohen is one of the executive producers on The Real Housewives franchise and always knows the tea behind production. Peacock recently confirmed they were rebooting The Real Housewives of Miami and going forward with a new season. The show only aired for three seasons on Bravo and Cohen is sharing updates on the current status of the series.
Who is being considered for the ‘RHOM’ Season 4 cast?
RHOM was short-lived on Bravo after only airing for three seasons. However, with the Peacock reboot, the ladies of Miami will be sipping on their mojitos real soon. One of the names being thrown out for the series include Orianne Cevey, Phil Collins’ ex, who according to Page Six was in preliminary talks to join. The publication also said that Latina superstar Paulina Rubio had been in contact to possibly join.
When rumors of the reboot first surfaced, Wendy Williams suggested she would be happy to join the show. The talk show host pitched herself to Cohen when she made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
“I totally can have the in because I would immediately befriend Larsa Pippen,” Williams told Cohen, name-dropping Pippen who was a former RHOM cast member. “Sign up Larsa Pippen, I’ve got the word on the inside that she wants to be a part. Sign up Mrs. Phil Collins, the ex who’s married to the young man, they both live in the mansion.”
However, Williams said she would only want the gig if it was in a “friend of” role and not a full-time housewife.
“Trust me, I definitely want to be just a ‘friend of’ because I don’t want to obligate myself to being there all the time,” Williams added. “And then come back and you ask me how my weekend is and I’m like, ‘Well, I was in Miami, let me tell you what I can say.”
‘RHOM’ Season 4 updates
Cohen recently spilled the tea on where RHOM is currently at in terms of pre-production. The WWHL late-night host is excited about the show returning and to a new platform.
“It’s in development. We’ve all been meeting with Peacock and talking to them, and there are always conversations about different Bravo IPs that could work on Peacock,” Cohen told Variety. “And I was very dogmatic that there is a big fan base for Miami Housewives that has been wanting it to be brought back. I see what people are asking for on Twitter, and that’s one of those shows that was a constant.”
The father of one also said that the reboot made “perfect sense” on the NBC Universal streaming service. Peacock showcases programming from all of their brands and “Bravo’s one of them, and this will be a little extension of Bravo.”
Cohen teased that there are talks with former housewives as he would like to see the original franchise connected to the reboot.
“I think there’s always a benefit in not throwing everything out. I’d like there to be some connection to the past,” he added.
What is not known yet is when RHOM would start filming and when it would begin streaming on Peacock. Fans are always eager for more content and this will not be the exception.
