WHAT EXACTLY IS HOUSEWIVES IN THE CITY?
Well, Housewives in the City is a national brand – a network of women throughout the USA – that want to help connect other women in their local communities both online and in person. Our goal is to connect local women with fun and unique monthly events hosted throughout the area while being an online resource by keeping you informed of local happenings, charities to support, businesses to check out, cool nearby trips to take and giveaway opportunities via our website and social media posts. It is also a wonderful way for local businesses to reach local women by showcasing what they do to our audience of over 20,000 local Southwest Florida women!
IS THIS NEW?
Housewives in the City originally started in Northern Virginia in 2011 by our founder Andrea Khoury and has since grown into over 30 cities with Fort Lauderdale being launched by Mandy Carter in Spring of 2018.
DO I HAVE TO BE A “HOUSEWIFE’ TO ATTEND?
Absolutely not! We want to connect women of all ages and backgrounds. You will meet business women, moms, entrepreneurs, bloggers, divorcees, single ladies, and everything in-between.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOUR EVENTS FOR?
The events hosted by SWFL Housewives are set up to allow local women to network, socialize, drink, eat, relax, and/or shop in a fun and possibly new local spot. They are just a great way to get out of the house and meet other women in the community in a positive environment. While also giving local women businesses a unique place to showcase their business. After all, we can never have too many opportunities to support other women.
DO THESE EVENTS COST MONEY TO ATTEND?
No, these events are FREE to attend!
If you want to showcase your business then there are partnernship and sponsorship opportunities available.
WHERE ARE THE EVENTS HELD?
Our events will be hosted, in restaurants and bars throughout the Fort Lauderdale area. We will keep you up-to-date via our social media pages and this blog, so please make sure you connect with us and read this website weekly! We are always seeking new and cool spots for our monthly event, so if you are a restaurant, bar or brewery interested in bringing our group to your place of business shoot me an email!

Who leads Housewives in the City Southwest Florida?
I am Mandy and I am dedicated to build the Housewives in the City community in Southwest Florida like it is in so many other cities across the US! (I also manage the Fort Lauderdale Housewives In The City community and serve as the Regional Director for all Florida communities.)
About Me: Mandy Michelle Carter
Hey Y’all – My roots are in Tennessee, so I can be a little soft spoken and I have a true southern belle twang who despite my journalism career, frequently uses the contraction you all. I left my hometown 2 decades ago with some lofty goals for a young girl. What it got me was a BA in Communications and minor in Journalism from Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS (Go Bulldogs!), a 10 year marriage, a successful marketing career and two beautiful kids. Fast forward 2 more years later —-> that marriage ended, and the career took too much time away from my kids. So I refocused on my dreams and being happy for me and my kids. And now I get to live everyday doing what I love! In addition to running Housewives in the City and being a mom, I am a freelance writer, model and I work full-time as the Regional Marketing Director for four Sky Zone Trampoline Parks.
