Someone sent me an article about this woman in New Jersey who was recently hired to plan a lot of the Real Housewives all cast trips. It was really interesting because she originally reached out to Kim Zolciak offering to help orchestrate her vow renewal in Turks and Caicos. Once she did that, Sirens Media started using her for other trips and it looks like other production have picked her up as well.
So in the middle of the story where she lists which housewives she sent where, she spilled a lot of tea about the RHONY. It seems the plan for the all cast trip this year was Buenos Aires, but since Luann got arrested, they can’t go out of the country. I guess because her charges might still be pending at that time.
That’s kid of a bummer because Buenos Aires would have been a lot of fun. The trip booker is now looking for a stateside location instead.
Then she gives us some gossip about the RHOA trip to San Francisco. As you recall at the time, production was having all kinds of issues with filming there and there was one scene planned for a gay club that completely fell thru at the last-minute.
It seems like that wasn’t the only hassle in San Francisco. According to the article in The Philly Voice,
For example, one evening in San Francisco, Serata organized a lovely meal for the ladies, complete with gorgeous centerpieces and animal-free options for the cast’s “ baby vegans.”
“We were supposed to start filming at 9,” Serata explained.
“These ladies – these divas did not walk in until way after midnight. 12:30! They’re in full glam, they’ve been glamming for three hours. They get into a fight within the first 15 minutes. Everyone leaves. No one ate anything. All the makeup and hair and those Dior and Gucci ensembles, and that’s it!”
And then we get some more tea on the upcoming trip to Barcelona…
After a lovely day spent at a spa situated an hour and a half outside of Barcelona, the RHOA were left stranded after their driver opted to have a few too many cocktails while waiting for them to wrap up shooting. The cast and crew were left standing on the side of the road for an hour and a half while Serata figured out how to get everyone back to their hotels.
I love finding out behind the scenes stuff like this, Don’t you?
