The Real Housewives of Hopkinton (RHOH) has evolved from private Facebook (FB) group to include a public website www.realhopkintonhousewives.com and a weekly public access TV show called “Hopkinton Coffee Break” (HCB} on HCAM-TV.
RHOH was founded in 2010 as a private neighborhood Facebook group. It quickly grew as members invited their local friends. Soon hundreds of Hopkinton women FB users wanted in.
In addition to the daily chatter on FB occasionally RHOH members got together for dinner or drinks at spots locally and in Boston.
In 2014 we launched “Hopkinton Coffee Break” a talk-show on HCAM-TV featuring the RHOH / RHH partners Patricia Duarte, Connie Wright and Darlene Hayes. HCB is light couch conversation highlighting community activities, interests and local guests.
Check us out on HCAM-TV our local access station and media partner.

In 2014 RHOH hosted its first fundraiser “Shopping for a Cause” at Golden Pond. So successful we hosted the 2nd annual “Shopping for a Cause” in 2015. With net proceeds benefiting Project Just Because, RHOH has donated nearly $5000 to PJB thanks to these two events.
Real Hopkinton Housewives (RHH) website was created in response to businesses wanting to advertise to RHOH members. We developed the website, www.realhopkintonhousewives.com to capture the service provider referrals we share on RHOH with a searchable Directory on the home page. RHH’s website is public but restricted to Subscribers and advertisers. Subscribers are issued a branded key fob card that identifies them as RHH subscribers and provides access to discounts and deals from retailers and other service providers in and around Hopkinton, MA.
With the launch of the RHH website on January 1, 2016, March 31 marks the end of our first quarter in business. Our mission – Brewing Community, Connection and Friendships, RHOH / RHH and HCB is a platform for community, connection and friendships. Our core business purpose also includes contributing to local and area nonprofit organizations.
It’s a lot of work and a lot of fun.
At this time we’d like to simply stop and THANK YOU – subscribers, advertisers, cheerleaders and supporters of our emerging enterprise.
Here’s a list of organizations and fundraisers we’ve been able to support together and individually from 2014 through q1 of 2016:

Walking into a Montessori classroom, one of the first things that becomes evident is the magical way the children move through the classroom, work independently, and interact with each other and the environment with deep respect. Children move freely through the classroom choosing their own activities while the teacher is the guide to connect the children to activities appropriate for their level
Christine Chapman has been helping families through the private school and college search and application process since 1989.
In her private work with families, she believes her greatest strength is in connecting with students and guiding them through the process of successfully developing balanced college lists, setting goals and walking through the process from search to visits, essay writing and interview preparation right through to application submission and enrollment. After three years working in admissions and college counseling at an independent school, she is grateful to return to full time private practice and hopes to share her knowledge, expertise and skills with her local community. Stay tuned to learn more about her group presentations regarding the college process (geared for families in the spring) and summer essay writing and common application workshops for rising seniors. Hourly and full package programs are also available, for those looking for more sustained attention and an expert to walk through the process with their family.
