Bravo to Porn Site -- Stop Pimping 'Real Housewives'!!!

5/29/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bravo is on the rampage ... after the network discovered a XXX website using the "Real Housewives" good name to promote its sex performers -- and now, they're gunning to shut the whole site down.

A rep for the reality network fired off a letter on Monday to RealHousewivesofScottsdale.com -- a site that boasts live XXX performances from several "housewives" -- and accused the site of sullying the "Real Housewives" reputation.

Bravo claims RHOS is infringing on their trademark -- insisting site operators better pull the plug on the entire operation stat ... or else.

But the site owner ain't scared -- telling us, he's not pulling the plug on anything ... and he's willing to go to court over it.

Anything for publicity say the producers of the housewives from hell purveyors. The housewives shows are about the same level as Jersey Shore type crap.

Bravo's got some nerve threatening someone over the concept of "Real Housewives." Bravo's "housewives" are not actual "housewives" (actually running a house and raising a family), but running around spending money and reading bad scripts; and many are not married or living with someone, either. That's a similar level of absurdity to Paris Hilton trying to trademark the phrase "that's hot" (like no one ever used it before she did)

At worst, the site will have to change its name to something like "GenuineHousewives" or throw in a word that separates the trademarked segments like "RealAmericanHousewives".

Leader of the ignorant masses    

They are suing that site because it is the duty of the actual housewives from those shows to sully their own name, and they do that well.
