Ever wondered what it takes to land a spot on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Do you would be the perfect next star of the show for Season 4? Well, if you had a million dollars and a Beverly Hills mansion? If so, here are some tips from the New York Daily News about how rigorously the network screens potential Housewives.
The New York Daily News obtained a casting application for the hit show and posted samples from the 51-question document, which included all the regulars such as, “Have you ever been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor?” and “Have you ever had a restraining order issued against you?” (As some Housewives prove, jail time doesn’t necessarily bar you from joining the Bravolebrity ranks.)
Another question asks potential cast mates if they’ve ever done “anything that would cause the program producers and/or the cable network and affiliates any embarrassment or monetary loss?” We think it’s safe to say that embezzling money to re-decorate your mansion probably falls into that category.
The app isn’t completely serious, though; there are also some fun, fill-in-the-answer type questions to separate the worthy from the worthless. For example, potentials are required to reveal any plastic surgery they have had or would have. And in the “Let’s Talk About You!” section, future reality stars are asked to complete the sentence “My life’s motto is…” Now we know where the Housewives’ cutesy one-liners in the opening credits come from!
