The Benton City Council surprises the town residents by inviting “Real Housewives” icons Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan to help spruce up their small town (population just shy of 7,000) that was devastated by the pandemic. It’s a fish-out-of-water experience for everyone involved, especially when the two Manhattanites check in to the local motel. The mayor wastes no time putting them to work and Luann and Sonja quickly realize they have their work cut out for them.

From building a new playground to revitalizing the local theater with a full-on variety show and creating connections with the locals along the way, Luann and Sonja use their ingenuity to help improve the surroundings and rally the town’s spirits. Whether searching for the famous crappie fish in the lake with their bare hands or going mudding with monster trucks, one thing is for certain – with Luann and Sonja in charge and out of their element, hijinks and hilarity are sure to follow.

Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan take on a new adventure: giving the town of Benton, Illinois a much-needed makeover. Luann & Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake Season 1 Episode 1. Watch the premiere of Luann & Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake, July 9th at 9/8c on Bravo and streaming next day on Peacock.
