The Real Housewives franchise started in 2006 in the US with the premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County. The original series—which starred OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson and four other Housewives—led to the creation of Housewives shows in nine other cities across the United States: New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, D.C., Beverly Hills, Miami, Potomac, Dallas and Salt Lake City. 

In an interview with STYLECASTER in October 2021, Kyle Richards, who starred in RHUGT season 1, explained how the spinoff is different than the original Housewives shows. “It was interesting to me because I was going in not only as a cast member, but as a fan of these franchises. I watch these shows. I was curious to get to know them on a different level. I’d met all of them at different NBC events, but I didn’t know them,” she said. “I was very intrigued. I was like, ‘Well, there can’t really be any arguments. How could there be? It’s not like we’re in the same franchise. There’s no history.’ Right out of the gate, something happens. We hadn’t even landed yet, and there was already a problem. I was like, ‘Wow. Even for me, this is a lot.’”
