(CNN) – The "Real Housewives" franchise on Bravo may have some competition. What about the "Real Democrats"?
If the new ad, sponsored by GOProud, a gay conservative group were true, the show's title would be "The Real Democrats of Washington, D.C." and the cast would include Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Barney Frank, California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"If you thought the housewives were dysfunctional, wait until you meet the real Democrats of Washington D.C.," the narrator in the ad says. "They're catty… they're arrogant… and they're in charge."
The graphics and music match that of the "Housewives" franchise that airs on the Bravo TV network, and even has a quote from each member of Congress, like the show does for all those housewives.
Jimmy LaSalvia, the Executive Director of GOProud said the ad will run on the Bravo and Lifetime networks in certain Massachusetts, New York, California and Hawaii Congressional districts.
"That's our target audience, young women and gay men," LaSalvia said.
Frank is an openly gay member of Congress, and Pelosi and Boxer pride themselves as champions of gay rights.
