It looks like the Real Housewives and other reality “Wives” stars are milking their 15-minutes of fame with a “Wines By Wives” monthly wine club for fans. Starting at the monthly price of $39.95 plus shipping & handling, you can pick your favorite “wife” and that month’s selections, chosen by her, will be shipped to your home. You can choose reds, whites, or you can mix it up.
If you are a hardcore fan you might want to go with the annual membership of $377.95 plus shipping & handling, and you’ll also get invites to exclusive celebrity wine tastings. ”Drink with Your Favorite Stars!” the website boasts.
Some of the “wives” that are participating are Vicki Gunvalson of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tracy DiMarco of Jerseylicious, Tamra Barney of RHOC, Adriana De Moura of Real Housewives of Miami, and Carla Facciolo of Mob Wives.
Each reality star participating in Wines by Wives reportedly gives a portion of profits to their favorite charity. No word on what percentage is donated.
The Wines By Wives website also offers t-shirts, spendy wine glasses and lavish gift baskets. Check them out at WinesByWives.com.
