A couple of weeks ago, my twitter friend, turned anonymous tipster emailed me some tea on The Real Housewives of Nashville. For a long while there I was hearing that RHON was being scouted and that Bravo was interested in getting some country singers signed on to the new franchise. Then, it seemed that project ended after Bravo was unable to secure any known names. So when the tipster contacted me with some tea, I was a bit skeptical. He was in Nashville for his spring break and he had done some sleuthing while he was there. I have to admit I love when you guys get out there and hunt down some tea for me! He spoke to a boutique owner who eventually gave up the tea that one of his frequent shoppers was being wooed for the show.
Here are the highlights:
- Bravo wanted to see her without make up on in the morning, but she got into an argument with production, telling them that she ALWAYS has to have makeup on to cook breakfast… He(the boutique owner) also says she owns a lot of horses.
- The tipster saw a picture of the woman and did some more sleuthing. He seems to think that the woman is TINA BRADY, who is the wife of a very wealthy dentist living in Wilson County, Lebanon, Tennessee. He saw pics of her and it appears to be the SAME woman who the boutique owner showed him. (I did some research on Tina and she does seem a likely candidate who is very into horses and attends all the big races.)
- Although Tina lives in the Nashville suburb of Lebanon, filming has been going on in the Frankin suburb of Nashville.
I put some feelers out to my Bravo connections and was told that Bravo has decided to drop any plans for RHON. This was odd, because my tipster seemed very credible and excited by his news. Today, I found out what is going on. Evolution Media, the production team for RHOOC and RHOBH has found a home for RHON. TNT has picked up the show and will call it Nashville Confidential. The Deadline announced today the show has been picked up for 8 episodes and will air in early 2014. According to the site, “Nashville Confidential is set in and around the high-stakes country music business based in Nashville, Tenn. Centering on some of Nashville’s most compelling power couples, the show provides an alluring and unprecedented glimpse behind the scenes of one of America’s most unique, vibrant and competitive cities.”
So will you watch The Real Housewives of Nashville if it is called Nashville Confidential and on TNT? Sounds good to me!
