After the success of the show Desperate Housewives, Bravo decided to bring the concept of the show into reality, launching The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2006. Further proving that television viewers just can't get enough of being a fly on the wall of the housewife's home, that show launched a thousand spin-offs, everything from The Real Housewives of New York City to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills filling out Bravo's daily programming schedule. To say the least, housewives have taken over television... and I can't exactly say that's a good thing, for folks like ourselves.
The gang over at Nerdist, however, have found a way to make the trend appealing to us horror folk. Yesterday they launched the pilot episode of their new web series Real Housewives of Horror, a reality show spoof that stars Brea Grant and FEARnet's own Laura Ortiz (star of Holliston). Written by Grant and directed by Sandeep Parikh, the fictional show follows around five women who have more than a few skeletons in their closet. They're the evil wives of cold-blooded murderers. And this is their story.
Check out the hilarious first episode below, which features goat's blood enemas and the premiere party for the book I Know What You Did Last Summer... And That's Why I Married You!
