Could Jill Kelley — the Tampa-based socialite who is all over the news this week thanks to her part in the unraveling of CIA head General David Petraeus’s extramarital affair — have a future on TV beyond the news? A stunning, 37-year-old mother of three, her hobbies include hosting parties attended by the government elite… and avoiding credit card debt. She and her husband have reportedly been sued a whopping nine times in the past ten years.

In other words, she’s gorgeous, gossipy, and living beyond her means — a set of characteristics that sure sound familiar. Where have we seen them before? Oh, in just about every cast member of Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise.


In fact, Kelley —  and her twin sis —  would make such perfect housewives, Bravo honcho Andy Cohen sounds like he’s already on the case. When Andy co-hosted Anderson Live with his pal Anderson Cooper this afternoon, Anderson said to him, “I’m surprised you don’t have them on speed-dial already.”


Andy’s coy reply? “Maybe I already do!”


Huh! We never pegged Tampa as a city ripe for potential Housewives… but it looks like we just may be proven wrong.


Watch what happens, people.
