Hilaria Baldwin entertained the idea of swapping out her yoga gear for a shining red apple after chatting with Andy Cohen about a possible Real Housewives gig.

“Well, we actually had a discussion with her a little while ago about that,” Cohen, 56, revealed in a preview for the upcoming Wednesday, June 5, episode of Kelly Ripa’s “Let’s Talk Off Camera” podcast, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Cohen’s remark came after Ripa, 53, suggested that Hilaria, 40, could be a good fit for The Real Housewives of New York City, since she and husband Alec Baldwin have a home in the city.

Cohen noted that his conversation with Hilaria was “exploratory” and “didn’t go much further” than their initial chat.
