Everything Jennifer Lawrence Has Said About ‘Real Housewives’

The Hunger Games star has expressed her enthusiasm for the reality TV franchise for years. One of the first times she talked about her Housewives obsession was during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. At the time, Jennifer spoke to then-talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about her alter-ego when she’s drunk, noting that getting “too drunk with the Housewives” was “something [she] always dreamt of saying.”

Jennifer also gushed over her “love” for the Bravo franchise during a 2014 interview with Vanity Fair.

“I do love my Real Housewives,” the Silver Linings Playbook actress said. “New York Housewives, and Beverly Hills, New Jersey and Atlanta Housewives. I mean, I love them all, but Miami — oh, my God! Miami is really special.”

Ten years later, Jennifer was still weighing in on all the Housewives drama. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in 2024, she commented on the season 4 finale of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, praising Heather Gay for her monologue about Monica Garcia.

“I mean, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, I just want to give a shout-out to the best finale I’ve ever seen on reality TV,” Jennifer said. “‘Everything that you want for the truth, receipts, timelines — I got it all.”
