VIBE – Tuesdays from 07 October, 9.30pm

Follow five sophisticated women and their families who lead glamorous lives in a picturesque Southern California gated community where the average home has a $1.6 million price tag and residents include CEOs and retired professional athletes.

Orange County “housewives” Kimberly, Jeana, Vicki, Lauri and Jo are used to the good life and will do everything they can to hang on to it. These women are sexy, sophisticated, and know how to turn heads, set trends, and keep up appearances in one of the most stylish communities in the country. From diamond parties to Botox sessions to the stress of juggling family life and a high-powered career, the women take viewers along for the ride and into their real-life dramas that show how life isn’t always perfect behind the gates.

“Real Housewives,” a “reality soap,” does for “Desperate Housewives” what “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County” did for “The O.C.” – it attempts to find true-life counterparts for the made-up versions. – New York Times
