Are You Ready for 'The Real Housewives of . . . Silicon Valley'?

Bravo seeking cast for tech-focused show

With the Real Housewives of various cities filing for bankruptcy almost as often as they get Botoxed, Bravo is setting its sights on one of the last places in America where people are actually making millions instead of losing them: That’s right, Silicon Valley!

According to Mashable, the NBCU-owned network has started posting Craigslist ads looking for “CONFIDENT professionals with BIG PERSONALITIES” to star in a new “Silicon Valley Reality Show.”

The criteria is pretty loose—anyone in their 20s through 40s, in any career, single or in a relationship, gay or straight, are eligible as long as long as they’re “living life in the fast lane.”

Which is to say, partying. A lot. “How about a hotshot lawyer, who works hard from 9-5 but parties even harder after dark?” the ad asks. “Maybe you just got your break working at one of the biggest Internet companies burning through the late-night hours and partying in the even later ones? Or maybe you're a middle school teacher in a small suburb, but you have a secret wild side?"

Although Bravo doesn’t appear to be totally focused on Silicon Valley’s tech elite, the network has been actively reaching out to the region’s high-profile entrepreneurs, says Mashable. But this sector of America’s richest might not be an easy sell: When the show’s casting director Desiree Mandelbaum pitched Digg creator Kevin Rose in an email, he kindly responded by tweeting, “yuck, please stay in LA.”
