Could it be that the Real Housewives franchise is America's greatest most recent export?
After The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered to a whopping 2.8 million viewers on Sunday, it's easy to see why television networks across the globe would want to profile the rich, famous – and feuding.
As the hostility between Housewives Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continues to play out in front of cameras, the series is finding legs far from New Jersey – specifically in places like Israel, Canada, Ireland and Brazil.
Take a peek at what's happening on Housewives-inspired shows all over the world:

It seems like decades ago that Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson were the first couple of reality TV – but on Tuesday's Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen couldn't seem to forget!
When Lachey, 39, and the rest of 98 Degrees visited Cohen's talk show, the singer's ex-wife and her family were hot topics.
During "Plead the Fifth," a question-and-answer game Cohen plays with celebrity guests, who can stay silent rather than answer an uncomfortable question, the subject of Simpson's father, Joe, came up.

Porsha Stewart may want to watch her back.
Since Kim Zolciak's mid-season departure from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes is the only remaining original star of Bravo's hit show.
Does that give her any sway over who's in and who's out when it comes to a sixth season? Maybe it does and maybe it doesn't, but one thing is for sure: NeNe is not afraid to let her opinions be known.

After nearly 17 years of happy marriage to Mark Consuelos, one thing can still really set off Kelly Ripa.
"I am openly hostile when Mark leaves the toilet seat up," Ripa, 42, told PEOPLE Tuesday at a private dinner in New York to honor her pal, Bravo star Andy Cohen, and his partnership with the retail site Gilt Man. "I don't think you get past the little pet peeves."
"Mark never puts the toilet seat back down, and it irritates me," she continued. "We still fight about it. But it's OK to fight about things. We're secure with each other. I don't feel like if we have an argument, it will be the end of our lives."

Justin Timberlake is serious about his new music. And Andy Cohen is serious about The Real Housewives.
In a spoof of the singer's "I'm Ready" video, in which he teased his return to the recording studio (which led to his new album The 20/20 Experience), Cohen is walking through the Atlanta Biltmore Hotel on his way to film the reunion shows for The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Watch below.
"Someone asked me the other day, 'So, are you just done with Housewives?' " Cohen says as he enters the hotel. "Housewives mean more to me more than anybody else in the world."

It's time for another The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion – but this time, one important cast member will be missing.
Host Andy Cohen starts off the reunion by announcing Maloof's departure from the reality series, "Today we are missing one of the Housewives who has been with us since the beginning. Adrienne Maloof has decided not to participate today," he explains. (Watch the video below.)
"This season was hard on Adrienne – as you know all know – a secret about her family was revealed by Brandi [Glanville] and from that moment on, Adrienne refused to speak directly about it ... Not only is she absent tonight, but she won't be on the show next season," Cohen continues.
