Common Theme Runs Through ‘Real Housewives’ Shows — and It’s a Problem a Lot of Other People Are Also Having

Sep 1, 2011  •  Post A Comment

The various editions of the "Real Housewives" series on Bravo have more than domestic drama in common: A wife from nearly every season has faced serious real estate issues, reports real estate site Zillow.com.

According to the story, 12 of the series’ stars have faced real estate problems. Issues have included short sales, foreclosures and bankruptcy.

Jeana Keough, one of the original housewives from the Orange County show, said in 2009 that her four properties had notices of default on them, the story says. Other housewives have had to reduce the listing prices of their homes, with Mary Schmidt Amons from the Washington, D.C., show reducing her home to $1.799 million from its original price of $2.35 million a year earlier, the piece notes.

Lisa Wu Hartwell, a cast member on the Atlanta show, and her husband, Edgerton Hartwell of the Oakland Raiders, lost their home in Duluth, Ga., which they bought for $2.9 million, to the bank.
