[Update] We just received a Tweet (pictured below) from Fox 10 producer, Emily Graham, asking Real Housewives head honcho, Andy Cohen, to confirm the rumor, and he wrote “No Truth.” So we’ll just have to see on this one.
Great scoop out of AZ Foothills, as it looks like the long-rumored “Real Housewives of Scottsdale” is coming to a TV screen near you. We’ve heard that the show will start filming this week at the VIP opening of the trendy DryBar hair salon in North Scottsdale. More important, the cast will feature local ladies-who-lunch such as Tina Majerle Dwyer (ex-wife of longtime Phoenix Suns star, Dan Majerle), Lori Citron, wife of anesthesiologist Gregg Citron, and Kim Lewin, pictured together a few years back at a private brunch inside Louis Vuitton at Scottsdale Fashion Square.
Starting in 2006 as the Real Housewives of Orange County, this hit show on Bravo has expanded to seven other markets, including New York, Atlanta, New Jersey and Miami. That said, the Scottsdale version is no surefire hit. After all, the Valley has seen its share of Reality TV fails, including Sunset Daze and The Will. The latter even stared former Scottsdale socialite/boutique owner, Penny Lane, who would have fit right in with her fellow housewives with her wacky personality, facelifted facade and marrying skills (lucky #4 was wealthy real estate developer, Bill Long Jr.) Alas, The Will lasted all of one episode on CBS, while Penny and her equally wacky and spotlight-loving son, Ashley, eventually moved back to Southern California after the closing their multiple Electric Ladyland boutiques.
