All Bravo fans have their favorite Real Housewives so much so that fans become ride or die for their favorite Housewives. So, whether a Real Housewife hails from Jersey or Orange County it can hard for some fans to say goodbye when their favorites get the boot by Bravo.
Now, Andy Cohen is revealing the REAL reason Housewives get kicked to the curb.
“If they become a turn-off to viewers, for whatever reason—they appear too fake, they’re not interesting, they’re not entertaining—[then they’re no longer a fit],” the franchise’s executive producer tells Paper Magazine. “When people cross the line and it becomes unreal, that’s when they are out.”
As for what makes a good Housewife, Cohen explains, “Someone who’s funny and unique and interesting to watch. Someone who has something to say, and is different, surprising and just watchable.”
He continued: “There’s a fine line between people who are desperate to be on reality television, and people who you want to watch on reality television. The Venn diagram of desperation and watchable, it’s a very slim thing in the middle where it overlaps, and you’re like, ‘That’s the bullseye, that’s NeNe Leakes, that’s Vicki[Gunvalson], that’s Bethenny [Frankel].'”
When it comes to his relationship with the Housewives Andy admits it can get “complicated.”
“I’m a boss, I’m a friend… I’m an adversary, I’m a button pusher,” he said. “I’ve become legitimately friends with many of them. I care about them. So it’s nuanced. And sometimes it’s great and sometimes it’s not great. It’s an emotional relationship.”
