It looks like Real Housewives All Stars is officially getting ready to film! The highly-anticipated new Bravo series will feature many fan-favorite housewives all getting together for a trip to Turks & Caicos. Among the cast is RHONJ star Teresa Giudice and RHONY‘s Ramona Singer, two of the last OG housewives standing on their respective franchise chapters.

According to an exclusive from The Sun, the cast included in the “first-ever mashup” met in Atlanta, Georgia yesterday and then will take flight for Turks & Caicos today to start filming. Ramona shared a photo on her Instagram page showing her sitting in a plane at the Teterboro Airport with the caption, “off we go” which most fans speculated was her teasing her involvement with the show.

Teresa also shared a snapshot of herself at the airport to her Instagram stories yesterday, which got fans buzzing to see how the two ladies would interact together! Melissa Gorga and Kyle Richards also shared airport pictures via their Instagram accounts, too.

Which housewives are starring in Real Housewives All Stars?

Sources close to Bravo told The Sun that the official lineup for the show would be as follows:

  • RHONJ: Teresa Giudice
  • RHONY: Ramona Singer
  • RHONY: Luann de Lesseps
  • RHONJ: Melissa Gorga
  • RHOA: Kenya Moore
  • RHOA: Cynthia Bailey
  • RHOBH: Kyle Richards

It seems like a relatively small cast, but the source said the “cast size had to be cut down to seven, as the largest-sized house the show could book is seven bedrooms due to Covid protocols.”

It’s possible that there could have been other ladies added to the cast in the early days but things had to be changed last minute due to the pandemic.

Real Housewives All Stars: The RHOC ladies are noticeably missing from the line-up

While there aren’t any housewives from RHOD or RHOP, the most noticeable absence comes from RHOC. RHOC is the original Real Housewives chapter so the fact none of the current women were invited is kind of a big deal. The show is currently on an indefinite hiatus as Bravo tries to figure out how to retool the series after a few seriously hated seasons.

I can’t imagine who they would have invited as Tamra Judge was probably the best person to invite, yet she isn’t actually on the show anymore. I’m not sure anyone would have been pleased had Kelly Dodd gotten involved in Real Housewives All Stars.

As for RHOD, it would have been nice to see D’Andra Simmons on board, or even newcomer Tiffany Moon. And RHOP wasn’t able to join the show at all because they’re filming right now, much to everyone’s chagrin.

Real Housewives All Stars: A mysterious eighth guest?

According to Christopher Rogers, the deputy editor at Hollywood Life, an eighth housewife might be added to the show halfway through. Rogers claims the mysterious guest is someone “fans have been desperately wanting to see return to one of the original franchises.”

I wonder if that could be Tamra? Others have theorized that it could be Jill Zarin from RHONY!
