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!

Oh barf.

Sick of reality shows period but if others like them im ok with that…i get my dose of reality when i turn off the set and walk outside!!!

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?

And i agree with you…at why not invest in weeknight soap operas…i would love to see a new version of Peyton Place or a Knots Landing reboot, or WE take over Dallas!

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..

ROFLMAO…KNOCK IT OFF su0000 I’m sure it won’t be subtitled…at least I hope not…LOL

Nada……CRAP TV!

Really tired of Andy Cohen and his very tired and pointless housewives franchise. Next!

Ugh No Way! I have No desire to watch Spoiled selfish women out to lunch or parties etc.. I am a “Real ” Housewife honey and I do Not do Lunches! Lol

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
