As the 2024 Grammys proved, celebrities love them some Beyoncé.

Since she burst into the music scene with Destiny’s Child in the late ‘90s, the icon’s beauty, powerful voice, and mystical nature have made even the most prominent stars turn into fan girls (and guys) whenever she’s around.

Those who have followed Beyoncé’s career know that, although she’s the star everyone wants to be, she has moments of watching the same TV shows from one of her many, many homes.

Beyoncé has shared that she enjoys scripted dramas like the ultra-popular Game of Thrones. However, her name has popped up in the unscripted world, particularly at Bravo.

In June 2024, Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Dubai mentioned Beyoncé in its Season 2 premiere. The Real Housewives of Atlanta has also said Queen Bey's name on the show.

The name drops made us wonder if Beyoncé could be in the network’s “hive.”

Does Beyoncé watch Bravo’s ‘The Real Housewives?’

While she hasn’t explicitly confirmed she’s a Bravo fan, Beyoncé has given subtle signs that she keeps up with the network, at least its top franchise, The Real Housewives.

In 2013, Beyoncé gave a nod to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore. During Season 5 of the reality hit, Kenya told her co-stars that she gets mistaken for Beyoncé when she goes to her local grocery store, a clip that still circulates in 2024 and likely beyond.

Following Kenya’s comment, Beyoncé proved that she saw what the Housewives OG said and was watching her on the show.

After performing at the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, a reporter asked Bey how she felt the performance went. She replied that she thought Kelly and Michelle were “fierce” and that they were “Gone With the Wind Fabulous.”

The last comment shook up the Bravoverse. It was Andy Cohen’s “Mazel of the Day” on the following Watch What Happens Live episode. Kenya addressed Bey’s comment on RHOA, told Bravo’s The Daily Dish, and said the quote was “the ultimate compliment and nod.”

Beyoncé’s sister and Grammy winner, Solange Knowles, is an avid ‘Housewives’ watcher.

In addition to Beyoncé giving Kenya a shout-out in 2013, another member of the Knowles family has openly shared her love for Bravo, specifically RHOA. She states she watches the show “religiously” and always has a good time doing so.

“I was just having a conversation with someone about The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I was saying how I love that show and think it's so brilliant because it's the woman that was represented in my childhood in Houston,” Solange shared with Beyoncé for Interview Magazine in 2017. “It makes me feel so at home."

Beyoncé was mentioned in ‘The Real Housewives of Dubai’ as a Season 2 highlight.

Although we probably won’t know Beyoncé’s thoughts on Housewives shows (live-tweeting isn’t her thing), she remained “embedded” in the RHODubai cast’s brains during the show's long-awaited Season 2 premiere. During the premiere, the cast — Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Lesa Milan, Caroline Stanbury, Dr. Sara Al Madani, and Taleen Marie — unpacked seeing Beyoncé in concert.

In January 2023, the ladies were exclusively invited to see Bey perform at the opening of the Atlantis The Royal in Dubai. The women shared that the concert included a “V.I.P.” section and a “V.V.I.P.” section. Chanel and Lesa, who were in the V.V.I.P. section, claimed they had the best section because they got to party with Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles, and other celebs who attended the concert.

However, Caroline Brooks, whose salon, Glass House Salon and Spa, worked on glam for Beyoncé and her team during her time in Dubai, claimed she had the best seats. Caroline Stanbury said she was so close to Beyoncé that she “sat on the stage.”

The fun shade and discourse among the ladies at Bey’s expense were refreshing for Housewives fans who had succumbed to insufferable feuds on other Housewives shows. While Beyoncé might not be a confirmed Bravo fan, she’s slowly making the franchise a little brighter, as only she can!
