A legal war just erupted among the co-creators of “Real Housewives” … two of the creators claim a third cut them out of the royalties, TMZ Reported

According to TMZ, the three men all of whom from Orange County got together in 2005 and came up with the idea for a show about the housewives who lived behind the gates of a fancy community, which is based in the exclusive Coto de Caza gated community, where one member resides.

The original name for the show was “Behind the Gates” but it became “Real Housewives of Orange County” the following year.

According to 2 founding members — Patrick Moses and Kevin Kaufman — the three reached an agreement to split the profits from a deal that was reached with Bravo, but according to the lawsuit Moses and Kaufman filed, Dunlop, had arranged a secret deal with Bravo which cut them out.

Moses and Kaufman say in 2009 they were offered a paltry $8,500 each to release their interests in the project and Kaufman actually agreed.

However, now both are claiming the release is bogus and they want full participation in the entire franchise.

Both men are suing Dunlop and Bravo for $5 million dollars in restitution.
