In a Watch What Happens Live Q&A session, Andy Cohen revealed which cities were considered but didn’t make the cut for Real Housewives franchises. In the past, the cities that seemed like perfect fits for the series haven’t worked like Miami and D.C., while some lesser known cities haven taken fans by surprise, like Orange County and Potomac. It’s no wonder why new cities are being discussed behind the scenes. Usually this information isn’t spoken about, but now that we have it, we’ve compiled a list of the potential Real Housewives cities that didn’t make the cut.
So, what qualities are they looking for when choosing the cast of a new Real Housewives city? Andy Cohen shed some light at a Watch What Happens Live Q&A. “They’re usually aspirational. They have their own identity,” he revealed.

Andy shared more about how they find the groups of women who star in a new Housewives show. “You look for a group of friends. Producers bring in casting people, and they find women who are on the society pages and belong to country clubs. 'Who are your friends, and how do you know each other?'" From there they create a list of about 10 women. “There's a little diagram that you look at,” he explained.
With fresh, new additions like Dallas and Potomac which premiered in 2016, new cities are always on the radar. "I think Dallas and Potomac kind of took people by surprise. They've worked really well," Andy said on WWHL.
