As hinted, these “Shakespearean” quotes are actually taglines from cast members in the Real Housewives franchise on Bravo.
The ”character” names, which are made up, are the same length as the actual Housewife names, and they share one letter in common in the same position. If the clues are ordered by city name alphabetically, as suggested by the final line (from Atlanta to Potomac), the letters spell out the phrase LADY LAIUS, cluing the answer, another famous “wife” from drama, JOCASTA.
