HBO Acquires Berlin Fest Buzz Title Reality Breakout For Its

HBO has acquired the U.S. rights to Tina Satter's Berlin Film Festival sensation 'Reality' Breakout' for an Emmy-qualifying release later this year. Starring Sydney Sweeney as a convicted categorised document leaker who becomes an unlikely advocate for her freedom, this docudrama follows their journey.

At Generations and Panorama this February, a number of new releases were welcomed with critical acclaim. These include Alicia Silverstone-starring drama Passages and Jennifer Reeder's Perpetrator, both set in Paris.

The Real Housewives of New York City

The Real Housewives of New York City (RHONY) is one of the most successful reality television franchises in history. Bravo's version started in 2008 and since then has featured some of modern America's most prominent women. For years now, viewers have followed along as RHONY chronicles the lives of women from NYC's elite social circles and their inevitable drama.

After a series of scandals involving Housewives stars, the franchise appears to have lost its way. Tom Girardi, Erika Girardi's husband, was accused of embezzling millions from clients including orphans and burn victims. It was also reported that Jen Shah from RHOSLC had been sent to prison after admitting running a nationwide telemarketing scam targeting elderly and vulnerable individuals.

Season 13 was a ratings disaster for the series, leading to an overhaul in its cast. A few "classic" members are returning for a spinoff while some new, ethnically diverse individuals have been given control of the Housewives car.

This rebooted version of the show will feature former J. Crew president Jenna Lyons, fashion blogger Sai De Silva, model Ubah Hassan, home renovation and design firm owner Erin Dana Lichy, influencer Lizzy Savetsky, fashion publicist Jessel Taank and brand marketer Brynn Whitfield.

Fans will witness these women as they navigate careers, family life and an active social life in one of the world's most vibrant and diverse cities. They'll get a behind-the-scenes look at real estate trends, fashion trends and more as they share their lives with viewers.

Housewives thrives on controversy, with cast members frequently engaging in heated arguments over seemingly insignificant matters like who has the better apartment or who makes more money. It's this kind of back and forth that makes Housewives such a hit.

The Real Housewives of Orange County

The Real Housewives of Orange County (RHOC) is a reality television series that follows the lives of women in and around Orange County, California. Launched in 2006, it's the first installment of The Real Housewives franchise and currently airs on Bravo; however, it has also been produced abroad such as Dubai and Athens.

The first season of RHOC, airing from March 21 to May 9, 2006 on Bravo, featured Kimberly Bryant, Jo De La Rosa, Jeana Keough and Lauri Waring as its stars.

Since then, the show's cast has grown. In addition to the original five Housewives, viewers now get to meet Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Meghan King.

Another notable addition is the return of Tamra Judge, an Orange County housewife who was previously fired from the show and recently featured on season 2 of Real Housewives of Ultimate Girls Trip. Now part of the full-time cast, Judge has returned as a full-time member.

Tamra, the owner of CUT Fitness in Orange County, has been a popular character on the show for years. She had an attitude and would often shout "Enough!" when her castmates went too far.

Vicki Gunvalson was her close friend, and she is a loving mother to her 16-year-old daughter Kennedy. After divorcing and moving away to Colorado, she returned home to California recently where she reunited with her estranged husband John Bluher.

Reunion specials of The Real Housewives of Orange County often feature the cast sitting on couches and reflecting on the events of the season. Host Andy Cohen assigns each Housewife a seat on the couches; closer she sits to him, the greater her importance in any drama that unfolds throughout the episode.

Reunion specials are typically filmed with a live audience and the Housewives usually don cocktail dresses or evening gowns to appear upscale and formal. Most reunion specials conclude with the cast making a toast, signifying that the season has come to an end.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

It's hard to believe it has been ten years since Bravo introduced us to NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak, and Sheree Whitfield as stars of their own reality show franchise that has seen more than its share of drama-filled seasons.

No matter the years, one thing remained constant: the cast members' fiery personalities. They brought to life all of their drama and scandals on screen, making them a household name that still resonates today.

That is why it was no shocker when Bravo announced they had joined forces with HBO to bring the popular reality show to their network. Not only did this give the show a home on one of America's largest networks, but also provided its stars with some much needed financial stability.

On October 7, 2008, the show premiered and quickly became the highest-rated program on the network, boasting an average rating of 5.8 million viewers per episode. Over the past decade, viewers have witnessed the series develop with new housewives and dramatic episodes.

Now with 10 seasons under its belt, there have been plenty of interesting twists and turns along the way. Take a look back at some of the most juicy scandals and feuds from over the past decade.

For the first few seasons, fans were introduced to a group of women from diverse backgrounds and personalities. Each were striving to live their best lives, though their differences often became evident when they came together on the show.

Season three saw NeNe and Kim start dating, which caused much drama among the other ladies. They had to reconcile their differing perspectives on topics like marriage, family, and children's upbringing.

Kim and NeNe's relationship began to blossom, leading to increasing strain within the group. She ultimately left the show after season six and launched her own reality show called "Don't Be Tardy," which ran eight seasons from 2012 until 2020.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is one of the most watched and beloved reality shows in existence. Since 2009, it has chronicled the lives of affluent Italian-American women living in New Jersey.

The show has seen plenty of high-stakes drama, but it also showcases characters who genuinely care about one another. Unlike many other Housewives shows, the Garden State cast was able to resolve their feuds without becoming a national embarrassment.

Though some of the cast are known to have off-camera issues, much of the drama has revolved around family dynamics amongst the housewives themselves. Some of the show's best fights have taken place on-screen, including Teresa Giudice and her sister Joe Gorga's fight during christening of their son.

When the cast isn't getting into fights, they often come together for a good time. One of the most memorable gatherings is the annual "girls' trip" that takes place each spring.

It's no shock that this season of RHONJ was a huge success with viewers. The cast features both returning cast members and new faces alike.

Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice, Jackie Goldschneider, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Danielle Cabral and Rachel Fuda make up the majority of the cast; however it has been some time since we saw Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi onscreen.

For years, the former Jersey Shore star hasn't been featured on the show, and even though she shares an affection for fellow cast member Melissa Gorga, Andy Cohen isn't interested in bringing her back.

But there's no denying that many fans would love to see the actress return. She has been a beloved character for many years and featured in several episodes of the series.

On the ninth season, Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub got into a heated argument. Although it wasn't shown on screen, the two were having an intense disagreement while having dinner, with both taking opposing sides.

The fight was so intense that the show had to cut it short, yet it remains one of the most famous and talked about brawls from the series. It serves as a reminder of just how far these well-off women will go in an argument when they're drunk or feeling frustrated.
