UPDATE 2: We received an email from someone claiming to be a producer for the show here in San Francisco, and that the hoax is apparently a hoax. In the email, he says there will in fact be a "Real Housewives of San Francisco." Will there or won't there? We'll just have to stay tuned to find out.
UPDATE: Perez Hilton quotes a rep from the Bravo Network, who says, ""Bravo does casting for many shows around the country, but this casting call is not for our network." in reference to yesterday's casting news on Craigslist.
Sorry, housewives. You'll all have to go back to housewifing, for now.
"The Real Housewives Of..." posted an ad on Craigslist stating:
