Northern Fights: 'Real Housewives of Vancouver' in the Works

The over-the-top squabbles and intense drama of the 'Real Housewives' franchise are coming to Canada -- more specifically, to the west coast city of Vancouver.
While there was initially some speculation that the franchise would be based out of Canada's biggest metropolis, Toronto, the series will launch in British Columbia. According to Shaw Media, the show is set to air on Canada's female-geared reality channel, Slice, and while Canadians are known for their niceties and politeness, we have a feeling this will showcase their darker side (yes, it can happen!).
The franchise will be the first to be filmed north of the US border. In early April, 'Real Housewives of D.C.' was canceled, and many speculate that its more popular sister show, 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' sealed its fate. 'RHDC' was the first iteration of the series not to make it to two seasons on Bravo.
Shaw Media also announced plans to launch 'Intervention Canada,' which will focus on Canadians suffering from addiction and substance abuse. This show is also scheduled to air on Slice.
