In Welcome to Crappie Lake the Benton City Council surprises the town residents by inviting the Real Housewives stars to help spruce up their small town (population just shy of 7,000) that was devastated by the pandemic.
It’s a fish-out-of-water experience for everyone involved, especially when the two Manhattanites check in to the local motel. The mayor wastes no time putting them to work and De Lesseps and Morgan quickly realize they have their work cut out for them.
From building a new playground to revitalizing the local theater with a full-on variety show and creating connections with the locals along the way, De Lesseps and Morgan use their ingenuity to help improve the surroundings and rally the town’s spirits.
Whether searching for the famous crappie fish in the lake with their bare hands or going mudding with monster trucks, one thing is for certain – with De Lesseps and Morgan in charge and out of their element, hijinks and hilarity are sure to follow.
De Lesseps and Morgan were also recently announced as part of the cast of the fifth season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip dubbed “RHONY Legacy.” They will be joined by other RHONY costars like Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Kristen Taekman and Kelly Killoren Bensimon.
