A REAL OC HOUSEWIFE…
From wig shifts to plate tosses, Kate Casey has covered all of Reality TV’s most outrageous moments. The OC housewife discusses pop culture and Reality TV on her podcast, Reality Life with Kate Casey, with weekly insights and special guest host. With 38k Instagram followers, the mother of 5, shares all the realities of her life with Bravo fans. Kate took the time to talk all things housewives, social media, and her journey to becoming a Bravoholic…
#1- HOW DID YOU BECOME A BRAVO FAN?
“I watched the very first episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, which coincidentally coincided with my move from Los Angeles to Orange County. I can remember reading an article about the show in the City Paper and how the author highlighted that Vicki Gunvalson served as the cast’s de facto spokesperson. What I remember most about that season was the complicated relationship between Jo and Slade, how Kimberly had abnormally long hair extensions, and that Laurie Peterson probably hated working for Vicki.”
#2- FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE AND CITY?
“My favorite housewife is Bethenny Frankel, probably because I relate most to her life story. Real Housewives of New York is my favorite franchise. They are all so direct, complicated, and willing to forget the past by the time the reunion ends filming each season. I laugh most during Real Housewives of New York episodes.”
#3- WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO START A PODCAST?
“My podcast is a love letter to reality television; I am like the Diane Sawyer of reality TV. I wrote recaps of shows for several years before I started my podcast. I wanted to create a show that tracked down reality stars of the past and present to ask them about the experience of being on a reality show. How were they cast for the show? How did life change once the season aired? What was it like watching their lives played back on television? Did it change the way they looked at other people and reacted to life circumstances?”
“It’s always my hope that after an interview I can help a listener understand a reality star in different way. I also ask guests in two other segments to review an episode of a reality show, so it’s always interesting and often hilarious to hear someone else review a reality show.”
#4- IS IT TRUE YOU INTERVIEWED FOR RHOC?
“For two different seasons I had someone recommend me for the show. It was an obviously short process since they quickly realized it would be too meta for me to be on the show. I recommend my episode with the producers of Real Housewives of Orange County and Vanderpump Rules, it is one of my favorites.”
#5- IF YOU COULD BRING BACK A FORMER HOUSEWIFE AND GET RID OF A CURRENT HOUSEWIFE, WHO?
“Can we bring back people for just an episode? I’d like to see Kelly Bensimmon run past a restaurant while Bethenny and Tinsley have a fight on a patio. Can Quinn serve cocktails to Kelly Dodd and Tamra in Orange County while wearing her wig? I am totally fine with producers in Orange County replacing Vicki Gunvalson. I think at this point I know enough about her life.”
Kate’s answers are great. If you haven’t listened to her podcast, what are you doing with your life? My favorite part about listening is Kate asks all the behind the scenes questions we want to know! I don’t need to hear a hour of babble about what i can see on TV, give me the behind the scenes scoop. Thanks Kate XOXO
