Will world understand 'Real Housewives of New Orleans'?

A new franchise of a popular reality TV show will soon hit New Orleans as filming begins for “The Real Housewives of New Orleans.” Producers are not saying who has been cast in the latest rendition of the hit series that follows five upscale married women through their daily traumas; however, the word is that one “housewife” is married to a professional athlete based in New Orleans, while another is reputed to be an Uptown blueblood who once reigned as the queen of a high-level Carnival krewe. A third reality star allegedly has had “more plastic surgery than the reigning burlesque queen of Bourbon Street.” And the most volatile of the show’s stars is a local chef who “makes Gordon Ramsey look like Bambi.”
