In one After Show segment, a caller asked her who she would cast if the network was to create a “Real Housewives of GOP.” Her answers included “The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s” Caroline Manzo and her mother Cindy McCain, both for very distinct reasons.
“Caroline Manzo, because I met her the last time I was on here and she’s a Republican, and she can I actually email about politics all the time. She’s a lovely lady,” McCain explains. “My mother, just for her personal shoe collection on the show.”
She also placed voted for Marco Rubio‘s wife Jeanette Dousdebes and “maybe Michelle Obama,” before realizing her mistake on the latter (“Oh yeah, we’re talking about just GOP”). But McCain says there’s no way that this hypothetical show will actually get made.
“Nobody in DC is really going to do a reality television thing because it’s all so secretive,” she admits. “It’s probably why [Bravo’s] ‘Real Housewives of D.C.’ didn’t fly so well.”
