SPILL THE TEA
-- Dina Manzo
The first glimpse behind the gates of the secret lives of housewives began in 2006 in Orange County. Since then, there have been 9 US versions, 10 international, and countless spinoffs (Bethenny Ever After, Don't Be Tardy, Vanderpump Rules, Manzo'd with Children, etc.).
If you can look past the name calling, hair pulling, and table flipping -- and around all the glitz and gloss -- you'll often find actual glimpses of reality, sometimes emotional, sometimes funny, always raw. Each city has its own personality, but they all begin the same -- with a tagline.
Here's a collection of my favorite tags...in order of my fave cities.
