Andy Cohen Reveals ‘Real Househusbands’ Show Was Developed

Andy Cohen Confirms Real Househusbands Show Was Developed in Orange County, Explains Why Series Was Canceled Before It Aired

Andy Cohen and his team at Bravo developed a series based around the group of husbands of Orange County, California, years ago but ultimately decided against moving forward with the show.

During an “Ask Andy” segment on a November 2022 episode of Watch What Happens Live, Andy confirmed that three years after the launch of the Real Housewives of Orange County, which began airing in 2006, a series titled The Real Husbands of Orange County was created.

“We did think of doing a househusbands show,” Andy explained to a fan, per All About the Real Housewives.

“Early on, we developed a show called The Real Husbands of Orange County, and we cast a bunch of husbands, and the truth is, guys are kinda boring — no offense. And so… we just, we were like, ‘You know what? We’re not doing this,’” he continued. “It was like three years into [RHOC].”

While Andy didn’t seem interested in going back down the route of a show based around husbands, many commenters on WWHL‘s Instagram post were for the idea.

“Gay house husbands show would be amazing! Start in NYC! I will audition,” one wrote.


“Y’all need a show for the gay husbands!!! That will be juciyyy!” agreed a third.

Others felt that current househusbands would be more interesting, with one person stating, “Andy has the right househusbands for a show now.”

“Maybe some All-Star Husbands or just the [Real Housewives of New Jersey] guys,” suggested someone else.

Last month, during an interview with Yahoo! Finance, Andy explained what’s made the Real Housewives franchise so successful.

“The secret sauce of ‘The Housewives’ is all in the casting,” he noted. “I think we’ve done a lot of great work — finding the right women and then figuring out how to keep the energy going and taking people out of the mix and putting people back in and putting new people in. There’s not a science to it, but [it’s] a process that we all care very much about.”

Watch What Happens Live airs on Sundays through Thursdays at 10/9c on Bravo.
