If the only thing you’re asking for this holiday season is to be able to watch a new episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in the hours leading up to Christmas morning, we’re afraid we have some bad news.

Christmas Eve falls on a Monday this year, so Bravo has decided not to air a new episode of the show on December 24 and will be showing the film Meet the Parents in its place. So instead of watching catfights between your favorite Housewives, you can watch Ben Stiller look for an actual cat. Close enough, right?

And the bad news doesn’t stop there. There will be no new episode on the following Monday either, since it’s New Year’s Eve. That means the next new episode won’t happen until — brace yourself! — January 7, 2013.

Don’t worry you’re not being punished for being on the naughty list or anything! We’ll all get through this Housewives drought together. And just so you know, Santa (and Bravo) still love you.
