The Real Housewives reality television shows that grace Bravo, when you really think about it, aren’t much for originality.
People tune in gladly each week to watch the hot mess that is the lives of people who are supposed to be “better off” than the rest of us.
Although standards in that regard seem to have dropped for the most part.
The Real Housewives cast members often try and expand on their meager fame in one of a few ways: releasing music, writing and publishing books, or selling wine.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is the latest star associated with the Bravo shows to try to cash in on her exposure.
Glanville went the wine route.

There was just one teensy, tiny problem: The RHOBH castmate had no idea what to name her product!
What on Earth is a reality television starlet to do?
Why, turn to the internet of course!
Glanville tweeted about her naming woes to her fans. She exclaimed, “I cannot come up with anything I love!”
I need your help I can't think of a name for my wine its a Chardonnay coming out very soon and I cannot come up with anything I love !

Her loyal Twitter fans came to the rescue, sending a slew of suggests her way. It seems to have paid off for Glanville.
“Thanks for all the great wine name ideas,” said a grateful Glanville. “I pitched two of them!”
One question: If a suggested name is the one chosen for her wine, will the helpful Twitter member who came up with it get any kind of credit for the idea?
Thanks for all the great wine name ideas!! I really loved them I pitched two of them!! Thanks! I want S.T.F.U and drink… they said no haha

There has been some suggestion that selling wine seemed a great idea for Glanville as she clearly loves getting her share on the show.
However, appreciation of wine and selling it are two entirely different things.
Housewives stars like Teresa Giudice have a lot of notoriety behind them, which helps generate buzz. Does Glanville have the kind of drama that drives fans to spend on pricey wine?

I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it goes!
