New Reality TV Series Showcases Trailer Park Housewives

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Move over real housewives. "The Trailer Park Housewives of Las Vegas" are moving in. "Trailer Park Housewives of Las Vegas" is a new reality television series being filmed in Las Vegas.

Bobbie Hemlock converted a school bus into an RV. She sleeps on a bed that's the size of a cot. It's butted next to her shower and just inches from her kitchen.

"It'd be interesting, because a lot of people don't realize that living ‘the trailer life'… isn't always just the completely poor. I have three college degrees, and I live wonderfully on my income and my retirement," she said. "I also have a cedar line shower that converts into a sauna, so it's definitely not just a trash mobile."

It's tight living quarters, but she couldn't be happier.

"I was building the kitchen and the bathroom fixtures in my apartment in my living room three years before I bought the bus," she said.

Bobbie won't be trying out for the new reality series that will feature six housewives, but her neighbors at Desert Sands RV Park are considering it.

Serena Burritt lives in and manages Desert Sands.

"I've thought about it. I haven't actually sent one in yet," she said. "As long as it doesn't paint anybody in a bad light, I think it's a good thing. Because, everybody has the stigma that, you know, a trailer park is a bad place. It's like "The Jerry Springer Show", but it isn't. It really isn't."

Her boss Shannon McMackin supports the trailer park twist to reality television, as long as it kills stereotypes.

"The issue to me really becomes about affordable housing. It's an opportunity for affordable housing, and I don't know how anybody could discredit that," McMackin said.

Casting calls for the show wrap in October. It should start airing on cable next year.
