Bravo TV executives are reportedly in the process of casting Christian women for a new "Real Housewives of Calabasas" spin-off, in a reality TV show that will be similar to ABC's controversial new series "Good Christian Belles."

Producers are particularly looking for "accomplished and upscale women in the Calabasas area who have fabulous lives, are very social, are involved in the community, but also have a very deep commitment to their faith," according to TMZ.

The new show will be filmed in the affluent city of Calabasas, CA which is home to reality TV personalities Kourtney Kardashian and Shanna Moakler.

Like "GCB," Bravo could receive a critical response to the new reality TV show after a number of critics including New York City Councilman, Peter Vallone, called on "people of all faiths" to boycott ABC's show, which was originally called "Good Christian B------."

"GCB," which is produced by famed "Sex and the City" executive producer Darren Star, follows the lives of Christian women who carelessly live in sin and constantly find themselves caught up in salacious gossip and lies, which critics like Vallone say mock Christianity.

"The title of the show alone is yet another outrageous attack on the Christian faith. Charlie Sheen will be back on 'Two and a Half Men' before we see a similar title targeting another religion," Vallone told TMZ about "GCB."

The "Real Housewives" franchise typically follows the lives of elite housewives who are often seen flashing designer goods, indulging in exorbitant shopping sprees, and promoting cattiness which many would argue is far from the core values of the Christian faith.

The highly successful "Real Housewives" franchise already currently films reality shows across the U.S. in Orange County, New York, New Jersey, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Miami and now reportedly also Dallas.

"[The Real Housewives of Dallas] is surely going to be a wreck and different from all the other shows Bravo has had," a source told renowned blogger Perez Hilton.
