Time for Our Big Announcement!
Here’s the deal, plain and simple. We’ve been contacted by NBC Universal, which owns Bravo and all of The Real Housewives Shows… Guess what?? The want to do a show about us! KIDDING! Nope, they actually contacted us because they want us to cease and desist… that means stop using Real Housewives in our name. Major Bummer. Although in 2012 Jess and I did make a goal of talking behind each others’ backs, wearing tighter, low cut clothing, and making millions of dollars, we’re sort of lost as to the “possible confusion” that NBC was worried about with this little old DIY blog.
Well, we’ve talked about it, prayed about it, sought legal advice, and in the end we decided it’s not worth the huge costs we’d incur to keep our beloved “Real Housewives of Bucks County” name. (We technically could try and fight this one under fair use law, but we’re not looking for a battle)
Of course we’re “Look on the Brightside Girls” so we’re going to make the most of this re-branding! We’re looking for a new name that totally reflects our personality and style. Who knows us better than YOU, our readers? So we need your help!
Pin ItSo, start thinking! We want our Facebook, comments, and email flooded with amazing ideas from you. Honestly, Jess and I just keep saying RHBC in our heads because it’s been our baby for the past 12 months. We totally need your creative help in this process.
Here’s How we Need Your Help:
#1- Tell us you’ll still love us even as “the bloggers formally known as The Real Housewives!”
#2- Share ANY and all name ideas with us through comments, Facebook, or email (don’t worry about us not liking it, we want to hear any ideas!)
#3- Consider sharing our dilemma on your blog, or Facebook… the more help the merrier!
**Update: We love the ideas we’re getting so far. Some of them are cracking us up! We just wanted to let you know that we plan to move away from “housewives” at all… just to be on the safe side. So keep the fab. ideas coming!**
Just keeping it real, of course we’re nervous about this change over. We’ve worked really hard this past year, and a little piece of us is worried about losing readers, people not being able to find us etc… BUT, we’re trusting that this will work out for good and who knows, maybe even catapult us towards awesome new opportunities!
Thanks so much and sorry we didn’t have some awesome announcement like our own show! Ha! We’re still workin’ on that one!
