For instance, what would Dorit Kemsley and her “British” accent think? Would Lisa Vanderpump come out of RHOBH retirement to sip rosé onscreen with the duchess? Furthermore, how would “Countess” Luann de Lesseps react to no longer being the highest-ranking titled woman in the franchise? There’s a lot to think about.
Alas, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever get answers. Although Cohen sent along the invitation and Prince Harry and Markle’s updated media regulations, outlined on their brand-new website, say they’re game for TV appearances, interviews and the like, it’s unlikely that Markle would deign to join the Real Housewives ranks. Sure, she and her husband are now financially responsible for themselves, but we’re assuming she goes the Oprah or Michelle Obama route, not the way of actress-turned-real-housewife Denise Richards.
Still, it’s fun to think of a world in which the Duchess of Sussex has a quippy tagline (“I may be royal, but I don’t adhere to protocol!”) and a penchant for having a few too many cocktails while lunching with the gals.
Perhaps it’s worth starting a new royals-centered franchise, Andy?
