Despite reports last month that the show had already been cast, Bravo insists that it isn't developing their own version of Logo's 'A-List' that would be something like 'The Real Gay Housewives' (or the title that was rumored, From the Bottom to the Top).
Says Bravo Media president Frances Berwick, "No, we’re not doing a version of that [a gayHousewives]. It would not be wildly outside of our milieu to do something that focused specifically on gay characters. But as to doing Real Gay Housewives, we’re not going there. Or something like The A-list, although I never saw a full episode, we wouldn’t do that."
AfterElton also spoke with Lauren Zalanick, President NBC Universal Women and Lifestyle Entertainment Networks, who echoed Berwick's comments. Asked about reports Cohen had a "gay"Housewives show in the works, Zalanick says, "He has never talked about a gay male version of theHousewives. I’ve never heard him say that, and I don’t know why he would….[The online report is] made up, I’m telling you. There’s absolutely nothing in development and never has been. I will say we do have casting out there around a group of gay guys. In terms of Andy casting it, we have a team. We have a couple [of different shows]. I would say, really early days, we’re in development, but we’re also developing a ton of other things."
