The Sun is reporting that Leanne Brown from The Real Housewives of Cheshire is calling time after six seasons (or, as the Brits call them, serieseseseseses). Leanne is one of the O.G.s of the franchise, so her departure, if true, will leave a gap, especially given her blood feud with former biffle Dawn Ward over a £500k loan. Sadly, her exit would also put a crimp in the Cheshire producers’ plan to assemble the first Real Housewives cast visible from space. Hopefully the seven women they hire to fill her slot are up to the job.
This week was not my favourite episode of Cheshire — like I said in last week’s recap, Cheshire episodes live or die by their final fifteen minutes, and these were a bit piecemeal. Still, I appreciated the square dance of partners handing each other off to variously squash or perpetuate their feuds. Here’s a quick look back at episode eight.
