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.”
