Real Housewives of Chicago: Help me become one!

I woke up Thursday morning, May 28th, to the most unusual emails.

"You've got to do it!", "You're our choice.", "Email them now!", "You'd be perfect for this!"....blah, blah, blah. Not until I opened up the newspaper did I understand what they were talking about

There in Bill Zwecker's column, in big bold headlines read, WILL OUR HOUSEWIVES PASS THE TEST.

Now I got it! I scanned the column--he always has the best scoops--and found what I was looking for ... the email for the production company, Towers Productions.

I immediately mailed in the prerequisite information they were requesting (name, age, photo, contact information and the area where I live) to be considered for the independent production of "Real Housewives of Chicago."

I loved the housewives of New York and even a fellow playmate, Jeana Tomasino, appeared on the housewives of Orange County so I figured what the heck? Becky Cattie is the casting director for this new show and she must really have her hands full.

She said, "the hope is to find women who could give this formula a new twist, showcasing a really unique group to represent the Midwest."  The production team is seeking "a dynamic group of ladies leading extraordinary lives--modern housewives who juggle busy lives and look great doing it!  No wallflowers please." 

I think I'm one of their girls!! If you think so too, please let them know by sending an email to

Move over LuAnn, Jill, Bethany, Kelly, Ramona and Alex--the Housewives of Chicago are ready for their close-ups.
