Well, we all knew it was only a matter of time before the telenovela   market and it’s huge industry  got involved with a riff on the highly successful “Real Housewives” franchises of Andy Cohen and Bravo TV!

Just announced is that WE tv is developing the unscripted series The Real Women of Telenovelas.  Set in Miami and produced by Matador, the show will follow a group of established and up-and-coming actresses and actors working in the genre.

The world of telenovelas has everything we look for in a WE tv show  compelling characters, conflict, consequence and comic relief,” said WE tv president Marc Juris. “We could not be more excited about this project and bringing these beautiful women and their stories and highly-charged relationships to WE tv viewers.  I think we’ll find the lines on the scripts in these TV dramas sometimes pale in comparison to real life.”

The series will focus on the lives of a mix of high-profile and up-and-coming actresses and actors in the telenovela scene as they navigate this drama-filled world. The high-octane drama onscreen is nothing compared to the real-life drama these people face. These colorful frenemies compete for roles and dates, walk the same red carpets and, of course, fight for the same spotlight. And now they’re ready to take their careers to the next level.

Would you watch the The Real Housewives of Telenovelas which probably will have to be the campiest thing ever?  Are you sick to death of all the “Housewives” shows?  Or, do you enjoy them as much of America does?  Comment below!

I so agree with you. What are these things all about? Drama! Which is the basis for all soaps! Why not invest in the real thing?

Telenovelas are spanish/whatever..
They are not spoken in english so the housewives of Telenovelas would be speaking which langue..
(I don’t do subtitles… lol

Also-
It is said Housewives are not scripted..
The cast is not handed a script however-
they are lead.. It is set up .. It is staged..
They are told the subject , where to go what do etc etc
Reality is to be 24 hours in their lives, not 36 minutes..
To watch 36 minutes (about actual time minus the commercials) in the lives of housewives, and a very exciting 36 minutes is FRAKE!!
It is sensaliaiam showmanship of trashy stuff.. 36 minutes of realty, get real..

(LMAO_ 36 minutes of their life is all in an episode..
In real life I can’t even do a load of laundry or drive to the mall or work in amount of time..yet do everything they do in 36 minutes time
LOL
FAKE JUNK..

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”
