Kristen Wiig is a die-hard fan of Bravo and the “Real Housewives” series. The comedienne has been a guest on “Watch What Happens Live” several times, where she presented her extensive knowledge of the hit shows. As many of you know, Peacock is preparing a crossover series in which housewives from all the series will come together for a vacation together. Wiig recently learned of the development and her reaction was so understandable.
So what is “The Real Housewives” crossover series?
There were rumors earlier this year that there was a “The Real Housewives: All-Stars” show in the works. It turned out to be true, but the show would not be on Bravo, but on the Peacock streaming platform. The show was in the works before the pandemic hit, but it was pushed back.
“Some women were contacted in late 2019/early 2020 to test the idea, in which cast members – potentially both past and present – from different cities would take a journey together,” Entertainment Tonight reports.
The casting was eventually confirmed by Bravo’s official social media accounts, and the personalities tapped for the show are a dream come true.
Of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore would be making the journey together. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga from The Real Housewives of New Jersey accepted the challenge to meet their counterparts. From The Real Housewives of New York City, it was Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps who were recruited for the show. Last but not least, Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills also took on the task for the epic special.

Kristen Wiig responds to ‘The Real Housewives: All-Stars’.
Wiig is a big fan of the shows on Bravo and of ‘The Real Housewives.’ On Saturday Night Live, she starred in one of the most memorable sketches in which the cast made fun of the reality series, but as Disney princesses. The “Wonder Woman 1984” star occasionally drops by Case Wilson’s podcast (B*tch Sesh) to dissect the housewives’ shows.
In one recent Zoom exchange, Wiig and Wilson were chatting about Bravo and the latter was about to blurt out something about the All-Stars show. However, Wiig was surprised by the mere fact that she didn’t know this show was being filmed.
Wiig was completely shocked, as were all Bravo fans, when they learned that the All-Stars special was happening. The comedienne had a lot of questions, especially wanting to know how they “categorize the groups.”
Wilson confirmed that the housewives will be mixed up and named the confirmed stars for the series. Wiig’s reactions when Wilson names the housewives are all and so understandable.
