Now in its fourth season, Bravo reality TV show Real Housewives of Dallas has apparently struggled to find local restaurants that are willing to allow the show to film on location.
In an interview with the hosts of podcast the Morning Toast, RHOD star Kameron Westcott said that the show wasn’t particularly popular in the city in which it’s filmed, and that a lot of her favorite restaurants won’t allow the show to record its always-dramatic scenes on premises. “It’s hard to find places to film,” Westcott said on the podcast. “A lot of restaurants that I go to on a daily basis are like, ‘Our customers here don’t want to be on camera, so we can’t film.’”
Despite the show’s restaurant struggle, at least a few local eateries have been featured on the Real Housewives of Dallas. Uptown favorite Bread Winners has appeared on the show, as has upscale Highland Park Village eatery Bistro 31. During last week’s episode, members of the cast sipped bloody marys at Addison restaurant Ida Claire.
Westcott didn’t dish specifically on which restaurants had turned the show down over its four seasons, which means that we’ll all be forced to speculate which establishments just weren’t willing to welcome these glass-throwing, Jesus-Juice-guzzling reality TV stars when the cameras are rolling.
