“The Real Housewives” in the United States is huge. How huge? For starers, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has been known to rake in over 4 million viewers in a single night. And the Georgia ladies aren’t the only ones who’ve won audiences. Per Us Magazine, almost all of “The Real Housewives” shows brought in over a million sets of eyeballs week after week in 2020. “The Real Housewives of Cheshire” followed that same formula to find their own cult following in Britain, per Digital Spy.
Season 1 introduced viewers to Ampika Pickston, Dawn Ward, Lauren Simon, Leanne Brown, Magali Gorré, and Tanya Bardsley, and the show followed the tried-and-true formula: A group of wealthy women who lead glamorous lives enjoy boozy lunches, attend and host lavish parties, jet set to exotic locations, and, of course, fight. The women share their unfiltered opinions in confessionals and gather at the end of the season to rehash the drama, just like ‘wives in the United States.
What sets apart “The Real Housewives of Cheshire” from other cities, according to the ladies themselves, is their sense of humor. “This is definitely the funniest ‘Real Housewives,'” Dawn Ward, a member of the original cast, told Digital Spy in an interview ahead of the series premiere. “We are definitely the best Housewives.”
