The first U.S. version of Celebrity Big Brother is coming in February to air opposite the Winter Olympics, and with any hope it won't be filled with the usual D-list reality rejects we're used to getting on these kinds of shows. According to the National Enquirer, the show's producers have banned any Real Housewives stars from being cast on the show.

The National Enquirer's sources claim that the producers are looking to avoid those kinds of reality TV stars who are used to appearing on camera in a private setting. Instead, they want something different for the three-week competition that will find the celebrities trapped in a house and filmed 24/7.

The decision not to include any Real Housewives would definitely go against most major network reality TV casting for celebrities. Dancing with the Stars has featured many of the Bravo ladies, including Erika Jayne, Kim Zolciak, NeNe Leakes and Lisa Vanderpump. NeNe has also competed on The Celebrity Apprentice, as have Kyle Richards, Kenya Moore, Teresa Giudice and Brandi Glanville. At this point, it's hard to find a celebrity-filled reality show that hasn't featured a Real Housewife.

However, this new report may contradict earlier rumors about similar reality TV veterans from being considered like Jersey Shore's Sammi Sweetheart or Blac Chyna, who was a part of the Kardashian empire.
