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..

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
