The Bravo television network has signed on two wives of prominent money managers to star in its new series: The Real Hedge Fund Housewives.
According to a source close to the deal, the series, which is set to start filming in the fall, will feature Lisa Marie Falcone, wife of billionaire Phil Falcone who runs Harbinger Capital Partners. Lisa is already well-known for her edgy fashion sense and friendships with Alicia Keys, who fans hope will make a guest appearance.
The second housewife cast in the series is none other than Alex Cohen, the second and current wife of SAC Capital’s Steve Cohen. This is the first television appearance Alex will be making since she and Steve were interviewed by talk show host Cristina in 1992.
The show is reportedly looking for two more hedge fund housewives to join the series, which will be set in New York City, Greenwich, Conn., and the Hamptons.
