‘The Hotwives of Las Vegas’ cast reveals favorite ‘Real Housewives’ role models

The stars of the satirical Hulu series “The Hotwives of Las Vegas” have revealed the “Real Housewives” on which they based their portrayals.

And one is a shocker – that, gasp, one of the “Hotwives” stars doesn’t watch any “Real Housewives” shows.

Can you imagine?

“Hotwives” launches its second season Aug. 18 on Hulu, which will release a new episode every week.

As part of the drumroll, each actress told TV writers which of Bravo’s many “real housewives” she is aiming to capture.

Casey Wilson (Tawny): “I was kind of a mix this season, Kim Zolciak (‘Atlanta’), maybe some Kenya Moore thrown in with a dash of Phaedra (‘Atlanta’) and Tamra Barney (‘OC’).”

Dannah Feinglass Phirman (Leona): “She’s based on Caroline Manzo from ‘New Jersey.’ Yeah, that’s pretty much what I was going for.”

Danielle Schneider (Shauna): “I kind of had a conglomerate of people. I was going for Shannon from ‘OC,’ who is just a little bird trying to keep up. And then there’s Taylor from ‘Beverly Hills.’ A lot of damaged, damaged ladies.”

Tymberlee Hill: (Phe Phe): “Mine was a mix, too. There was NeNe Leakes (‘Atlanta’) and I threw some Phaedra in there. I also had a big dose of Wendy Williams, who is not a housewife, but is an honorary housewife for all of the traffic she has brought through her show.”

Angela Savage (Veronica): “Yolanda Foster (‘Beverly Hills’) is the launching-off point for my character.”

Erinn Hayes (Callie, new this season, replacing Kristen Schaal’s Amanda): “My character is based on Carlton, from ‘Beverly Hills,’ who is a Wiccan.”

Angela Kinsey: (Crystal): Okay, I don’t watch ‘The Real Housewives.’ So I just tried to be someone who was really important about nothing.”

While you wait for ‘The Hotwives of Las Vegas’ to come out on August 18, why not go back and watch Angela on the first season of Hulu’s Real Housewives parody, ‘The Hotwives of Orlando’?


A parody of one of the most popular franchises in reality television, “The Hotwives of Orlando,” takes you inside the uber-exclusive and glamorous world of six hot housewives livin’ large in Central Florida’s sexiest city, Orlando. The show follows a cast of ladies as they fight over pretty much everything except for their love of shoes, plastic surgery, and the pursuit of spending all of their husbands’ money.

The Office’s Dwight and Angela had lunch together, and now we celebrate

Jim and Pam might be The Office’s most iconic couple, but Dwight and Angela will forever be the weirdest. Two years after the series finale, stars Rainn Wilson and Angela Kinsey are still good friends, though Wilson looks a lot different than his Dwight days. The two met for lunch this week, and he was sporting a beard that, in his words, is “literally bigger” than Kinsey’s body. If you still miss The Office, you’re going to love the pictures. Take a look!

Heather Graham’s directorial debut casts Angela Kinsey, Molly Shannon (exclusive)

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Angela Kinsey, Chris D’Elia, Jason Lewis and Molly Shannon have all signed up to join Heather Graham in her directorial debut, Half Magic.

As production kicks off, Luke Arnold (Black Sails), Thomas Lennon (The Odd Couple), Alex Beh (Warren) and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) have also been added to the cast.

Graham wrote the script for the sex comedy and will also star in it as Honey. The story centers on Honey’s goal of finding a man to have “hot sex” with. She makes a pact with her two friends (Kinsey and Beatriz) to shut down the self-doubt that interferes with them getting what they deserve, and the trio set out on a search for self-fulfillment.

The Bubble Factory’s Sid, Jon and Bill Sheinberg are producing the film, which began principal photography on June 4.

“From Lena Dunham to Tina Fey to Amy Schumer, I have been inspired by the powerful, unapologetic female comedy voices paving the way for women in the entertainment industry,” says Graham, whose acting credits include The Hangover Part III, At Any Price, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Boogie Nights. “With the knowledge and experience I’ve acquired in my two decades in this business, I’m ready to put my own voice forward on a project inspired by the comical liaisons that my girlfriends and I have found ourselves in with respect to love, friendship and womanhood.”

Kinsey is known for playing Angela on NBC’s hit comedy The Office. She currently co-stars on the TBS comedy Your Family or Mine and Hulu’s The Hotwives. She’s repped by UTA, LINK Entertainment and Felker Toczek.

D’Elia stars in the TV series Undateable and previously appeared on the comedy Whitney. He’s repped by 3 Arts Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.

Lewis starred as Smith Jerrod on the Sex and the City series. He’s repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Silver Lining Entertainment.

Shannon is currently filming TV series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and will next be seen in the Sundance hit Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. She’s repped by UTA, Framework Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson.

As he battles a bench of players who would rather be snacking in the dugout and a squadron of overbearing parents, he must decide what’s more important: whether you win or lose, or how you play the game.
