The Real Housewives is an international reality television franchise that consists of 11 series in the United States and 21 international series. Most of the series document the lives of a group of affluent women (only some of whom are actual housewives) residing in a certain city. The American series have mostly been broadcast on the Bravo network. The franchise began with The Real Housewives of Orange County, which premiered on March 21, 2006. That show was inspired by several soap operas, most notably Desperate Housewives; the franchise has sometimes been referred to as a “docu-soap”. Of the international series, the longest-running is The Real Housewives of Cheshire, which has aired 14 seasons so far.

The Real Housewives was first announced as one of six reality television shows ordered by the American television channel Bravo in May 2005. It was inspired by scripted soap operas including Desperate Housewives and Peyton Place, and would document the lives of upper-class women who “lead glamorous lives in a picturesque Southern California gated community where the average home has a $1.6 million price tag and residents include CEOs and retired professional athletes.” The series was announced as The Real Housewives of Orange County in January 2006, and premiered on March 21 of the same year.

In September 2007, Bravo started the production for the series Manhattan Moms, which would “[follow] an eclectic group of Gotham socialites and their families.” The series was later retitled as The Real Housewives of New York City in January 2008, becoming the first spin-off from The Real Housewives franchise. It premiered on March 4, 2008. The second spin-off The Real Housewives of Atlanta was announced in June, and premiered on October 7. The third spin-off The Real Housewives of New Jersey was announced in May 2008 (before the announcement of the Atlanta series), and premiered a year later, on May 12, 2009. The Real Housewives of D.C. was announced in October 2009 and premiered on August 5, 2010. It ended on October 21, 2010, after one season, becoming the first series in the franchise to be canceled; its cancellation came after one of the show’s cast members, Michaele Salahi, and her husband caused controversy by successfully entering the White House uninvited for a state dinner while being filmed for the show. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was announced in March 2010 and premiered on October 14, 2010. In March 2010, Bravo ordered a series titled Miami Social Club, which would serve as a reconstruction of the series Miami Social. The series was later re-titled to The Real Housewives of Miami. It premiered on February 22, 2011, and ended on November 4, 2013, after three seasons.

In November 2015, Bravo announced two new The Real Housewives installments, The Real Housewives of Potomac and The Real Housewives of Dallas. Prior to being announced, The Real Housewives of Potomac was initially titled Potomac Ensemble during its early production. It premiered on January 17, 2016. While The Real Housewives of Dallas had originally been titled Ladies of Dallas during its early production, a potential spin-off series to Ladies of London. The series premiered on April 11, 2016.

In November 2019, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City was announced. It premiered on November 11, 2020. That same month Andy Cohen, executive producer of Bravo’s The Real Housewives series, confirmed that he was trying to get the streaming service Peacock to pick up The Real Housewives of Miami for a fourth season. In February 2021, it was confirmed that The Real Housewives of Miami would be rebooted on Peacock. On August 17, 2021, Bravo announced that they had no plans to immediately renew The Real Housewives of Dallas for a sixth season, placing it on an indefinite hiatus.

On November 1, 2021, Andy Cohen announced that the next installment of the franchise will be The Real Housewives of Dubai, set to debut in 2022.
