No Vegas or Arizona Housewives, though Andy Cohen backs away from no-more comment

Bravo is not producing versions of The Real Housewives in Arizona or Las Vegas, but although Andy Cohen said the network is “done” creating spin-offs, he has backed away from that.

But Cohen wrote on Twitter, “Bravo is not shooting or casting for Vegas or Arizona Housewives. It is not true and we have no association to either project.”

That followed a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal that auditions were being held there earlier this month, and reports on gossip web sites that said a pilot for an Arizona version was being filmed in Scottsdale, which the Arizona Republic reported weren’t true.

But that’s not to say we may not have a new housewives series someday. In an interview with TV Squad, Andy Cohen backed away from his earlier statement that Bravo was done with creating spin-offs. “Um, I mean, you know, look, I mean, look, never say never, but I think we’re really good right now,” he said.
