Is Donald Trump gunning for top billing in a Real Housewives of D.C. reboot?
After the president blamed poor cell phone reception for his delayed call to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto following the country’s devastating earthquake, Bravo host Andy Cohen jumped on social media to draw his latest comparison between the commander in chief and a “Real Housewife.”
“HOUSEWIVES PLAYBOOK: blame cell reception,” Cohen tweeted on Friday, kicking off a long thread of jokes about the president’s claim.
It wasn’t the first time Cohen, the executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, compared the president to the stars of the hit reality series.
Last month, Cohen mocked Trump for his repetitive “drain the swamp” talk after the president tweeted: “Drain the Swamp should be changed to Drain the Sewer – it’s actually much worse than anyone ever thought, and it begins with the Fake News!”
Cohen teased, “HOUSEWIVES PLAYBOOK: keep repeating the same lines over and over and over ’til someone listens (See: Aviva, bookgate; Kim D, strippergate).”
Aviva Drescher was a former castmember on Real Housewives of New York City. “Bookgate” centered around Drescher’s claims that fellow castmate Carole Radziwill’s memoir was ghostwritten – a rumor that the journalist vehemently denied. Cohen’s other comparison referenced a feud between Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga over long-running rumors that the latter was once a stripper.

And in March, Cohen likened Trump to a “first season Real Housewife” after the president spent a portion of his morning fighting back via Twitter against allegations that his administration has ties to Russia.
“What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?” Trump wrote in one of a handful of tweets.
Cohen replied: “Sweetie you are a first season Real Housewife making stuff up to stay on the show.”
