It sounds like something out of an Andy Cohen fever dream: a group of beloved Real Housewives gathered together to film a music video celebrating all the work they’ve had done. But, somewhat miraculously, it actually happened—all thanks to Fiber One, whose new campaign highlights the “work” the brownie has undergone to have less calories, less net carbs, and less grams of sugar. (Get it?)
The accompanying song, “Work Done,” includes lyrics like “Yeah, I’ve had some work done but Rome wasn’t built on wishes” and a video featuring what I’d call the champagne-soaked Justice League: Melissa Gorga (Real Housewives of New Jersey), Porsha Williams (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Sonja Morgan (Real Housewives of New York), Dorinda Medley (Real Housewives of New York), and Tamra Judge (Real Housewives of Orange County).
“Obviously, Housewives are known for putting it all out there,” Gorga says when I meet up with her, Williams, and Morgan the day after the campaign’s launch. “When I heard I was going to be in a music video—which, by the way, my fans have been asking me to do for years—I was very excited about it. The fans are going crazy because there’s Housewives from different franchises together, we’re singing, we’re dancing…I mean, we’re giving everybody everything they’ve ever wanted.”
For Williams, it’s important to make it clear the song’s message is all about celebrating who you are, in whatever way that looks like to you. “If you’ve had actual work done, surgically or not, it’s a lifestyle of living better and being guilt free,” she explains.
Says Morgan, “We like to empower women and not put them down and say, ‘Oh, you’ve had your nose done’ and ‘you’ve had your boobs done.’ We’re not about that.”
“It’s not about shaming,” Gorga adds. “If something is going to make you feel a little more confident—if you want the bump out of your nose, if you want to enhance your boobs, whatever it may be—it’s it’s fair and it’s you. If it makes you feel good, then good for you.”
Here, we ask the women to tell us more: about plastic surgery, about the pressure of being on TV, and what work, if any, they might do next.
Glamour: So what work have you had done?
Sonja Morgan: Everybody wants to know that!
