Casting 'The Real Celebrity Housewives of Hollywood'
By Tracey Harrington McCoy Posted Feb 6th 2010 05:59PM
After months of speculation, it seems like the new TV show, 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' might actually happen. Paris Hilton's relatives, as well as other celebrity heavy hitters, are attached and ready to go. But did Bravo executives miss the mark? Wouldn't it be more fun if the next franchise of 'Housewives' was located right smack in the middle of Hollywood and featured real celebrity housewives?!? We do! Just for fun we're going to reveal our dream cast for what could turn out to be the best reality show ever -- 'The Real Housewives of Hollywood!'
The Diva: Jennifer Lopez
The Hollywood cast needs a leading lady, a megawatt mama, a diva-in-chief if you will. The cast member with the biggest wardrobe, most entertaining hair and make-up routine, and super extravagant home furnishings. Crushed velvet sofa anyone? A woman who won't compromise her lifestyle choices to appease anyone. A star who loves being a star. And wouldn't the über-glamorous Jennifer Lopez be perfect. (With or without crooner husband Marc Antony...)
The Strong, Not-So-Silent, Type: Jada Pinkett-Smith
There are some people you just don't mess with. And Jada Pinkett-Smith is one of them. This actress (and mother) knows exactly what she wants and gets it - crushing those who foolishly stand in her way. Her alpha-female dominance would be interesting to watch, particularly when other cast members disagree with her. She'd also call people out for acting selfishly or stupidly. Who doesn't want to see a Jada-J.Lo smackdown? (Plus, Jada's married to Will Smith. Bonus points for episodes involving the Fresh Prince!)
The Hippie Chick: Nicole Richie
Not only does Nicole Richie bring long, flowing dresses and wavy, braided hair to the cast, she also brings a touch of youth. A lifetime member of Hollywood royalty (her father is music icon and long-time Hollywood resident Lionel Richie), she knows how to play the society game but brings a fresh and funky point of view. And with famous friends like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, there's potential for entertaining cameos. Her rocker beau Joel Madden and their two adorable kids are perfect finishing touches to what just might be the cast's most fun member.
The Classy Single Mom: Reese Witherspoon
Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon? Her cute smile, pitch-perfect sense of style, and publicity-shy way of life have gained her an admiring fan base. Who can forget the classy way she handled her ex-husband cheating on her? She's the friend everyone wants and her kids are quite possibly the cutest on the planet - just don't tell that to Nicole! She might get pushed around a little bit by this cast, but we're pretty sure she'd win them all over with her cheery disposition and Elle Woods-like determination. And if she doesn't, it'd sure be fun to watch her try.
The Wise One: Rita Wilson
With a diva, a woman who doesn't mess around, a hippie chick and a single mom, the cast needs some order. A mother hen of sorts. Someone who's been around, seen a lot, and has lived to tell the tale. A woman who isn't afraid of younger, strong-minded women or flashy, sequin-adorned glamour-pusses. A member of the Hollywood elite. Ladies and gentlemen, we need Rita Wilson. The actress (and maybe more importantly Tom Hanks' wife) would bring some much-needed maturity to the group while also providing a peek into a different part of Hollywood. (Mostly, her husband's private life!)
And with that, the dream cast for The Real Housewives of Hollywood is complete. Now all we need to do is get these five dynamic ladies to the Ritz for some tea and crumpets and wait for the fireworks to begin! Kapow!
