The Real Housewives are coming to a theater near you. Well, maybe, if you’re in or around Atlantic City, Chicago, or Atlanta. The Bravo franchise today announced that it’ll be sending groups of its Real Housewives ladies out on “The Real Housewives Live Tour.” The tour’s three stops will feature a different group of ladies, and inexplicably, no group of ladies features two women from the same city of Housewives. You can see the ladies live all for the price of anywhere between $49.50 and…$170! Yes, literally, $170 to see NeNe Leakes trade fake barbs with Jill Zarin.
By our estimation here at EW, the live tour seeks to mimic what happens at an Andy Cohen-hosted Real Housewives reunion but without what makes said reunions juicy – namely, the fireworks that ensue when ladies from the same cast come together in a room, talking about the hot-button issues from their season. Despite that little detail, Bravo still promises that “fans will have the chance to get up-close and personal with their favorite cast members as the ladies discuss the most talked about moments, reveal cast secrets and answer questions straight from the audience.”
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Aug. 19. Truly dedicated fans can buy the Red Carpet Package, which the network insists allows you to “live like a celebrity” with a pre-show cocktail reception hosted by cast from The Real Housewives; walk a red carpet through a special private entrance; and nab your very own, limited edition tour laminate. Oh, the trills!
The tour schedule, including which ladies are appearing where, is as follows:
Atlantic City, Oct. 1, Caesars Circus Maximus Theater
Caroline Manzo, New Jersey
LuAnn de Lesseps, New York City
Kyle Richards, Beverly Hills
Vicki Gunvalson, Orange County
Hammond, Indiana (Chicago), Oct. 8, The Venue at Horseshoe Casino

Will you go? Do you care? Is there any drama left to squeeze out of these ladies?
