Real Housewives of Stringtown Rising


Get ready for the feistiest batch of housewives yet! Bravo has revealed the cast of Real Housewives of Stringtown Rising.

The network showed off their five latest stars early Friday.

Beulah Petunia is the biggest mommy in the bunch. A single mom to more children than she can remember, she’s currently raising her latest baby, Glory Bee. The busy working mom runs a dairy factory. She’s not above stepping on the other wives if there’s food involved.

Clover, known as Granny Nanny since her daughter, Nutmeg, gave birth recently, is the real firebrand of the group. She prefers to call herself Goat Yard Barbie and has a predilection for cookies, which has gotten her into trouble–or embarrassing outfits–on more than one occasion.

Fanta is a fun-loving single mom of twin girls and is currently running a daycare in her home. She considers herself the perfect mother and isn’t above criticizing the rest. Or taking their babies.

Sprite is a young mother who once hoped to join a nunnery. Jailed after abandoning her newborn child, she’s on the road to recovery and redemption. Or at least that’s the word according to her publicist.

Nutmeg has already been voted most likely to get into a catfight. Also a new single mom, her head-butting temper gets her in trouble with her friends on a regular basis. She’s known to hide out–or call her mother–when things get too hot.

The network already has the first taping in the can and it’s expected to air in early March.

Unless somebody eats it first.

  5. susan says:

    What a perfect post for my afternoon read!

  6. patrice says:

    It’ll be my favorite new show!

  7. Joell says:

    I have to admit that I watch the Housewives series on Bravo, and I must say the Housewives of Stringtown are, in my opinion, far the more attractive, even the south end of Jack when he is going north is nicer to look at, at least we are seeing the real thing.
    No face lifts, breast implants, botox, fillers or hair weaves, all so natural, just goes to show you that natural beauty is best and it abounds in Stringstown—-Housewives of Bravo, take notice!!

  8. Southern MN Gal says:

    I would totally set my DVR for that program! :snoopy:

  9. 4jsMOM says:

    Thanks for another great story from Stringtown Rising. Hope this is just the beginning of a long-running series.

  10. Sue, a Florida Farm Girl says:

    Oh, I love it. I might even watch this Housewives program, cause I sure won’t watch that other “stuff”. (Notice I’m being nice there.)

  11. Ellen says:

    :snoopy: :hug:
    This would be better than any of the ‘real’ Real Housewives shows…and I’d rather watch it.

  12. judydee says:

    I must confess, I’ve never seen a “real housewives” program, but I believe this one is probably closer to “real” than any of the others. I too am looking forward to the next episode.

  13. whaledancer says:

    😆 😆 Now that’s one reality show I might actually watch. In fact, I’m sure I’d love it.

  14. joycee says:

    I never miss an episode of any of them, love me a good catfight!

  15. gennifer says:

    ah ha.hahaha.. 🙂

  16. trish c says:

    Great Post. I would watch. :wave: Love the pics!

  17. Deb Klenke says:

    I might have to purchase a TV, if that show was ever picked up by a major network. :yes:

  18. DB says:

    Really cute. I don’t watch that other “Housewives” show, but love this one!


  19. Barbara W says:

    Always entertaining, I was wondering, if you were planning on BP calving next year?

  20. Karen says:

    Hahahah…that’s great!

  21. Madeline says:

    Now if THOSE housewives were on cable I might even subscribe again!!!!!!!

  22. Anna says:

    Okay, sometime ago you took a survey about whether people would buy a book you had written about the farm and what kind: recipes, animal stories, etc. I didn’t participate but I can tell you my preference would be your animal/farm stories. HANDS DOWN. I think you could rival Herriot. Not only do I laugh when I first read them, I laugh again when I read them out loud to my husband. Your love for the animals and your life with them is almost palpable.
    Sprite’s and Petunia’s description are my favorite.

  23. Window On The Prairie says:

    Now this would be a Real Housewives that I would watch. Sprite would be my favorite character. I like it that she’s seeking redemption. Doesn’t she just look all innocent? :yes:

  24. WiccanMam says:

    Perfect..absolutely wonderful! Thanks for an evening smirkle, snort, totally out loud giggle session..PeAcE

  25. Deni says:

    After a long hard day this was such a treat to come home and read!

  26. Brenda E says:

    I hope this is a continuing saga – I love it !

  27. Lana says:

    How in the world do you get your animals to look into the camera? I can’t get my dogs to stand still to take a picture!! Love your zingers at the end of your stories!

  28. Samantha Cornwell says:

You were just getting the goats. All i know is there has been so many times that you make me laugh and add joy to my days… every day. I always check your blog like i do my email. There has been plenty other posts that has put a smile or really made me laugh and this one just made me think…ok, i enjoy this so much and i’ve never commented. Not once. You’re such an inspiration. I don’t really expect you to tell me when i started reading, but if you do read this, know that i thank you from the bottom of my heart for the daily dose of life in ordinary splendor. LOVE THIS BLOG!! Feel like i know you as i’m sure all readers do. YOU ARE INSPIRING!!Thanks again……Sammy in Flat Rock, NC!

  29. Nic, SD says:

    LOL. And also? I never realized that Fanta has a goblin sort of look to her.

  30. Linda says:

    Who cares about the show “Desperate Housewives”……..

    “Real Housewives of Stringtown Rising” has got them beat by a long shot and they are much prettier ladies!! :shimmy:

  31. holstein woman says:

    All your posts are priceless as you are.

  32. mamawolf says:

    I have never watched any of the housewives or reality shows but this would be at the top of my watch list. The animals are wonderful and your stories give them personalities to match their faces. This started my day. Thanks for the chuckles.

  33. bonita says:

    Flash Fiction at its best!

  34. Jill Garofano says:

    totally Hilarious!!Suzanne, you are brilliant!!! thanks for making my day every day!!

  35. Wendy says:

    I love your sense of humour, Suzanne!
    Thank you so much for doing this every day… because we know you don’t have enough to do already. HA!

  36. Madeline says:

    I am sorta partial to Clover.

  37. lavenderblue says:

    I use a second-hand percolator coffee pot to make my coffee. I fix the pot, put it on the burner on high to get it started, then come into the living room to read “Chickens in the Road” until it is time to turn down the pot for a nice slow perk. Except, except sometimes I get so busy reading all the cute, funny, crafty, sweet, practical stuff on this blog that I forget about the coffee pot. Then I drink over boiled coffee. Yep! Did it again today. :shocked:

    Oh well, keep writing like this and I’ll make the sacrifice.

    P.S. The only time I’ve ever seen any of the “Real” Housewives is when they were on “Ghost Hunters”. What an awful confession.

    This just popped up on “More Posts You Might Enjoy”…It is my favorite picture of BP. How appropriate that you wrote about her today.
