The Real Housewives All Stars cast is gearing up for tropical shenanigans! 

Now's the time to pour yourself a glass of Pinot Grigio à la Ramona and figure out how to watch Peacock TV ahead of the premiere. (Well...perhaps not in that order.)

The Real Housewives All Stars, officially titled Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, is the highly-anticipated spinoff miniseries of the popular Real Housewives franchise. It will feature some of the brand's best-known Bravo-lebrities gallivanting around a mansion in tropical Turks and Caicos. A recipe for drama, if you ask us. 

Think of it as Bachelor in Paradise without the romance, but with all the ups and downs. To get you fully prepped, we'll give you the inside scoop on what to expect from the special, the cast and season 2. Think you can handle it?



Who's starring in the 'Real Housewives All Stars' season 1?

The Housewives franchise has taken us all over the map—and will soon head overseas to gift us with The Real Housewives of Dubai in 2022—but never before have our favorite ladies from different cities teamed up for a grand series like this! Needless to say, this is a Bravo milestone. Here's who is venturing to Turks and Caicos: 

  • Melissa Gorga (The Real Housewives of New Jersey
  • Teresa Guidice (The Real Housewives of New Jersey
  • Luann de Lesseps (The Real Housewives of New York City
  • Ramona Singer (The Real Housewives of New York City
  • Kyle Richards (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
  • Cynthia Bailey (The Real Housewives of Atlanta
  • Kenya Moore (The Real Housewives of Atlanta

There were rumors, however, that more Housewives stars were supposed to be joining the cast, but COVID restrictions on the island limited the production to seven castmates. A source told The Sun: “This is not the ideal cast that Bravo wanted but due to scheduling conflicts with current seasons filming and COVID, everyone is just excited they are going through with this.” 

One such rumored addition was Vicki Gunvalson, the breakout star of The Real Housewives of Orange County, who would've been more than ready to whoop it up. During a recent interview with S'More Date, Gunvalson said that she was initially asked to be part of the crossover miniseries.

“I had a contract… and COVID hit and they stopped the mashup show. It was called ‘Mashup,'” the RHOC star said. “Then when it resumed, all of a sudden they forgot about me.”

Rumor has it that original Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin will be making her grand return to the franchise during the miniseries instead of Gunvalson. Time will tell! (Though be warned: neither Gunvalson nor Zarin make a cameo in the first trailer.) 

Watch the the 'Real Housewives All Stars' trailer:

We told you to keep that Pinot on hand! Things start out amicably enough in the series trailer—there are matching outfits involved—but it doesn't take long before things get dramatic.

We catch wind of Cynthia and Kylie butting heads—again, fairly amicably, all things considered—Melissa and Teresa going at it, proving the Jersey girls will bring the feud anywhere, but perhaps most notably Kenya and Ramona exchanging "f you's." 

Did we really think Ramona would be cleared of the most intense disagreement on the show thus far? As Kylie notes, "They call her the Ramonacoaster, because she's just all over the place" and talks of the RHONY cancellation did revolve quite heavily around Ms. Singer. 

Have a look at the tropical antics below. If there is a reunion special for this miniseries, we will be incredibly fortunate. (Are you listening, Andy Cohen?)

What is the 'Real Housewives All Stars' series about?

In a similar fashion to the reality show Big Brother, The Real Housewives All Stars cast was filmed 24/7 for eight days straight, entertainment sources revealed. The spinoff is essentially a peek inside the tropical getaway that took place in late April 2021. And from the looks of things, the ladies had a blast...literally and figuratively.

The group has not been shy about posting their luxurious stay on Instagram. You can see Melissa Gorga and "the dream team" sporting aqua-blue PJs from her line, Envy by Melissa Gorga.

Meanwhile, New York representative Ramona Singer posted a ton of throwback photos from the experience, tagging all of her cast mates, and saying how much she misses them. (No word on whether or not that includes Kenya, but we have a feeling it probably doesn't.) 

Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards let Atlanta's Cynthia Bailey do the honors of snapping a photo of her while bikini-clad on a boat. Friends don't let friends post bad photos on the 'gram. 

And our favorite cabaret sensation, Luann de Lesseps, got awfully close to cookbook author and Jersey girl Teresa Guidice. Considering they're just a quick trip across the GW from one another, it's safe to say these two will remain in contact following the series.

When is the 'Real Housewives All Stars' air date?

The wait is almost over, Bravoholics! The first three episodes of the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip premiere on November 18, 2021. What better way to kick off the holiday season than with a little bickering?

There are eight episodes in total, and the five remaining episodes will become available every subsequent Thursday. Fans can catch the adventure on Peacock TV. Sign up for a subscription below: 

Will there be a 'Real Housewives All Stars' season 2?

Sure looks like it! Peacock already has a season 2 of the Housewives mash-up in the works, Us Weekly has confirmed. The sophomore season will reportedly begin filming soon and will feature some Bravo fan favorites. The cast includes:

  • Dorinda Medley (The Real Housewives of New York City)
  • Jill Zarin (The Real Housewives of New York City)
  • Vicki Gunvalson (The Real Housewives of Orange County)
  • Taylor Armstrong (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)
  • Brandi Glanville (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)
  • Eva Marcille (The Real Housewives of Atlanta)
  • Phaedra Parks (The Real Housewives of Atlanta)

The location of where all these ladies will gather for Real Housewives All Stars season 2 has yet to be revealed, but we can certainly expect it to be somewhere luxurious, and—considering Dorinda will be on board—"nice."

There are so many ladies left—and several Real Housewives locations we've not yet covered (hello Potomac!)—we'll just keep our fingers crossed that our cup of Pinot runneth over with additional seasons and even reunions. (You've got your work cut out for you, Andy!)
