Wall Street Journal: 'Real Housewives of Westchester' Casting Call

Remember when we told you in December that a "Real Housewives of Westchester" was in the works? WSJ spies a casting call on Craigslist.

Avid readers of Patch—wonderful people that you are—learned that a movement was afoot to stage a "Real Housewives of Westchester." 

Are you ready for your close-up?

According to The Wall Street Journal, actress Mary Amy and real estate broker Nora Holmes are searching for local women to appear on the “Real Housewives of Westchester County” pilot for the addictive Bravo series. 

Their ad posted on Craigslist, titled “Casting Housewives of Rye, NY for Proposal Submission (Westchester, NY),” says they are casting women aged 35-50 for an “ultra-stylish docu-soap, which follows the dynamic lives of Rye's social butterflies."

Warning Preppy Handbook throwbacks: You are not the look they're after.

"Khaki pants and Lily headbands need not apply,” the ad reads.

My whale-patterned turtleneck weeps.

To apply you must submit a photo and headshot to job-caad6-2411301939@craigslist.org.

A few women have already applied, the WSJ said, but it won't be all about the hair-grabbing, fist-throwing, cocktail-tossing trifecta we've all come to love from the Bravo series. These ladies would be “more classy,” and “smart.”

Which makes total sense, since Armonk resident and entrepreneur Leslie Wilkins-Gaudio was considered for the Westchester spin-off.

Leslie Wilkins-Gaudio is the inventor of the isABelt , an invisible belt that holds you pants in place. She and her three sisters run the company, which also sells a variety of fashion “fix-it” solutions.

Bravo did not return calls to us or WSJ.

Sadly, a program about what real women are like wouldn't get the ratings networks crave. People seem to looooove trash.

I think people would want to see a cast of diversity of women I think that would spice up this show.

"Classy and Smart". Right, that's their intention. Who's going to watch a show like that. Truth is the producers will have these women looking like morons in no time flat because that's what brings in ratings. I really think the whole concept is derogatory towards women and needs to be stopped. Why not show the Real Husbands of Westchester. Just a group of guys in front of the TV drinking beer and watching sports on the weekends and working all week to pay the taxes. Of course their wives couldn't be there at the same time, because they all hold jobs too. Rye housewives, take a reality check, you ain't that interesting..
