It would be six more years before the Supreme Court struck down all state bans on same-sex marriage, but Bravo, Top Chef's home network, had been cultivating a slate of LGBTQ-forward programming for the better part of a decade. But the Emmy Award-winning series has cast between one and three queer women on nearly every season of its year history. And it wasn't just family-friendly battles for same-sex marriage the show depicted, either — Top Chef was in conversation with queer sexual liberation, too, from its very first season in San Francisco. In the second episode, which aired in , guest judge Elizabeth Falkner sports a chest harness, a leather vest, and a not insignificant amount of butch eyeliner for an elimination challenge staged in a fetish shop. Contestant Tiffani Faison, who goes on to become the season one runner-up, mentions being familiar with Falkner because they were both featured in the same magazine article about queer women in the kitchen.

These women attempting to perform their own idealized version of themselves — rich, successful, ageless, perfect wives and mothers — might be doing it all with more money and power than we are, but their anxieties and even delusions are really just fun house mirror reflections of our own. Still, there is a dark side to the Housewives universe, which, of course, centers on wealthy or apparently wealthy women, their obscene spending, and their frequently retrograde ideas about sex and marriage not to mention politics and human rights.
