Blood, gore and dragons aside, with all the drama that goes on in Game of Thrones, it’s easy to imagine the hit HBO series as a reality TV show. After all, both genres are equally as fabricated. But for GoT fans with a taste for trashy TV, YouTube user Jason Gallagher brings us the most perfect mashup between the epic fantasy and some good old-fashioned mindless TV.
Gallagher imagines the Thrones series as a version of the popular Real Housewives franchise on Bravo. This time, the housewives (or…castle wives?) hail from King’s Landing and they are just as shady and conniving as their counterparts from Beverly Hills, New York and Atlanta. The short adds a humorous twist to the drama between Cersei Lannister, mother of the king, and the young king’s wife, Margaery Tyrell. This season, the pair have been throwing epic shade at each other as Tyrell flexes her influence over the king and tries to get Lannister to fade into the background. Their exchanges are very Real Housewives and this fan video is pretty spot-on illustrating the dynamic.
Watch as Lannister and Tyrell throw shade, side-eye and dish about each other in their “confessionals.”
