El Dorado will soon dip into the treasure trove that is reality TV with the premiere of “The Real Housewives of El Dorado” in May 2013, according to a release from the El Dorado Chamber of Commerce, which has been tapped as the official casting agency.
According to the release, the show will center on the lives of five area women: a Main Street developer, a local politician, the wife of an oil tycoon, a struggling single mom and a gossipy hairdresser.
“We’re real excited about this opportunity to showcase the best of the best among El Dorado’s real citizenry,” stated the release. “The show will be tastefully done, but will, of course, continue all the drama and excitement of ‘The Real Housewives…’ series.”
Enthusiastic verbal battles will highlight the premiere which is rumored to feature notable local bigwigs and their wives as they prepare for a summer in El Dorado. True to the series’ tone, in-fighting, plastic surgery, shopping sprees and all the lavishness of an El Dorado lifestyle will overshadow the ladies throughout the season, which is expected to last through September 2013.
“Real Housewives” developers will begin filming in May of this year with a target date of Jan. 12, 2013, to finish up production, according to the release. Casting crews will continue through April of this year to seek out interesting locals to add to the scene of the show.
On the list of potential locals being scouted for the show are the heads of several local municipalities, an exuberant radio show host and a number of beefy weightlifters.
