BRAVO MEDIA ANNOUNCES EXPANSION OF "THE REAL HOUSEWIVES" FRANCHISE WITH TWO NEW ELITE DESTINATIONS SET FOR 2016

"The Real Housewives of Potomac" Premieres Sunday, January 17 AT 9 PM ET/PT & "The Real Housewives of Dallas" Premieres Later Next Year

NEW YORK - November 11, 2015 - From Maryland's fabulous best-kept secret to the truly over-the-top Lone Star State, Bravo Media expands "The Real Housewives" franchise with two new lavish and picturesque locales. Revealing one of the most affluent towns in America, "The Real Housewives of Potomac" premieres Sunday, January 17 at 9 pm ET/PT, and, debuting later next year, "The Real Housewives of Dallas" proves that bigger is in fact better.

"'The Real Housewives' has become a global phenomenon that drives cultural conversation while consistently breaking ratings records," said Shari Levine, Executive Vice President, Current Production, Bravo Media. "We're happy to extend the franchise with Potomac and Dallas giving Bravo fans more of what they desire: stories of dynamic women who make us laugh, cry, cheer and experience unforgettable moments we can't stop talking about."

"'The Real Housewives of Potomac' is the show you never saw coming, and it's going to take everyone by surprise!," said Andy Cohen, who serves as Executive Producer of "The Real Housewives" franchise. "As for 'The Real Housewives of Dallas,' it's a natural extension of the franchise with a Southern twist that 'ya'll' will enjoy." Just up the river from our nation's capital lies a hidden gem - Potomac, Maryland. Its rolling hills, gated mansions, sophisticated prep schools, and exclusive country clubs all serve to keep the area invitation-only. Sprinkled throughout this community are a handful of old-line, wealthy African-American families who have historically broken racial barriers to provide the best life possible for their children. "The Real Housewives of Potomac" follows the upscale lives of six intriguing, well-to-do women: Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Robyn Dixon, and Ashley Darby, all of whom have fought for their places in this society by way of legacy or marriage. In a town where entry is granted only through class, pedigree, and lineage, how far will these ladies go to secure their spot at the top of this prestigious circle?

The series gives an exclusive look into their glamorous galas, scintillating scandals, and enormous egos, to prove exactly why everything is bigger in Texas.
