‘The Real Housewives All-Stars’ Cast

For the first time in The Real Housewives history, stars from across the franchise will come together and live under the same roof. Although Peacock has not confirmed what the name of the show will be, everyone is calling it All-Stars. The ladies recently traveled to Turks and Caicos where they were seen partying it up on a yacht and having fun under the sun.

From The Real Housewives of New York City, De Lesseps would be joined by OG star Ramona Singer. Close by is The Real Housewives of New Jersey where Teresa Giudice and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga signed up for the vacation. Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore were the stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta that were included. Lastly, Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was the only housewife from her franchise and from the west coast filming for the crossover spinoff.

Is Luann de Lesseps ready for the drama?

De Lesseps loves the spotlight as a cabaret star and there’s no wonder why she was chosen to be part of the show. The reality TV personality also loves to travel and it’ll be interesting to see how she interacts with the other ladies. Ahead of embarking on the tropical island, De Lesseps teased her excitement of being part of this historic TV special series.

“I’m super excited to get to know the other women from the other franchises,” the Countess said while being a guest on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “I know them, but I don’t know them… I haven’t been on vacation with them, so it’s going to be interesting to travel with them and get to know them better.”

De Lesseps is not worried about any drama happening during the getaway, in fact, it’s something she enjoys.

“I’m excited about it and it’s going to be fun, and, you know, of course, there’s going to be drama with all those personalities thrown in. But I kind of like that part [because] I love to see how people navigate [and] how they behave around other people,” she added.

Andy Cohen Blasts ‘The Real Housewives’ Fans: ‘Let Us Do Our Work’

Is ‘The Real Housewives’ franchise over?

Despite The Real Housewives fans excited for this crossover event, people were reminded of what Andy Cohen said years ago about an All-Stars season.

“You know what? We will do Real Housewives: All-Stars when the show is just about out of gas,” Cohen told Entertainment Tonight back in 2016. “So right now we had our second highest season of Beverly Hills, New York’s highest ratings since 2012, and Orange County, last season had its highest-rated season in 10 seasons.”

Cohen’s words don’t paint a great picture for the future of the franchise. However, if this is the end, at least they are giving fans what they want bringing all the housewives together.
