'RHOC' spin-off coming soon? Bravo reportedly trying to replicate 'Pump Rules'

"Vanderpump Rules" has been a great hit for Bravo.

The series, which revolves around life at Lisa Vanderpump's West Hollywood restaurant, SUR Lounge, was a spinoff of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and typically airs directly after. Now on its third season, "Vanderpump Rules" continues to thrive and is quickly becoming one of the network's top shows. Last season, ratings on one particular episode even surpassed that of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

So, in turn, Bravo is now searching for a way to create a similar spin-off of "The Real Housewives of Orange County."

"Bravo is seeking to anchor Monday nights better for RHOC next year with a comparable program, if not spinoff, that carries a So Cal vibe," LALATE reported on May 19. "While Tamra Barney is not set to get a CUT Fitness spinoff just yet, LALATE can report that Bravo is seeking how to anchor Monday nights as a better programming block with a Laguna Beach like show."

In addition to "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" being anchored with "Vanderpump Rules," "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is anchored with "Fashion Queens," and Bravo executives are hopeful that they will be able to create the same sort of dynamic with an all new series, which will likely air after "The Real Housewives of Orange County."

Although the cast member to be featured has yet to be announced, there are certainly several options. For instance, Lizzie Rovsek runs a swimsuit company, which would be interesting to see more of. Vicki Gunvalson is also running a business, as is Tamra Judge with her new CUT Fitness location.

Whatever they go with, Bravo seems to have a great idea on their hands, and if they are following the lead of MTV hit "Laguna Beach," it is sure to be a success.
