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… Read more »

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
