A few more photos of our favorite (and really not so favorite) reality stars are trickling in this morning. Cameras caught a few of the stars as they arrived at the hotel earlier in the day and several of them as they left their hotel last night to head to the event.
The stars in attendance are usually a sign of who might be coming back for the next season and who isn't. For instance, I think it's pretty clear that Lilly Ghalichi won't be returning to Shahs of Sunsetnext season since her co-stars were all on hand last night and she's back in L.A. That, coupled with the fact that she has had almost no interaction with them since the reunion pretty much says it all. #sadface
NeNe Leakes is another example. Rumors were swirling about her status. Was she fired? Did she quit? Was she downgraded? Sources came out of the woodwork, cryptic Tweets were sent out to tease the fans, and then she turns up for the presentation, which pretty much means she was invited back for another season of Atlanta. But no sign of Kenya Moore or Porsha Stewart or Phaedra Parks – all so that we can be kept guessing for a little while longer what Bravo decided to do about those messes.
Reza Farahan was tapped to talk on stage about Shahs of Sunset, while the cast of Vanderpump Rules, The Real Housewives (of every city except Miami) and Flipping Out hit the red carpet and sat in the audience for the presentations. Also spotted – NeNe Leakes front and center – an obvious sign that she's sticking around RHOA (or maybe landed a spinoff?).
So far the photo agencies only have a handful of pics from the event, but a slew of reality stars Tweeted and Instagrammed photos and we've rounded up some of them for you! Take a peek at the festivities below and tell us what show you're looking forward to the most!
Below you'll find pictures of the Kardashian sisters arriving at the upfront presentations in NYC (more of those pics featuring the Bravolebrities coming later), Kelly Bensimon on the streets of NYC, and Lisa Vanderpump attending an event with Ken Todd. You'll also find LuAnn de Lesseps, Lilly Ghalichi and others.
We already shared red carpet photos from PUMP's grand opening. Today, we gathered up a few party shots ofLisa and her guests, as well as pictures of PUMP's decor. Lisa designed PUMP herself. "I wanted to create a garden that makes you feel like you're in paradise, like France," Lisa told the LA Times. "I always look for what I think the market needs in a certain space. For this – it is very gay friendly because we are right in boy's town."
By the end of last season, I was ready to be done and over with watching this show – all that dark and angry family drama just went on for too too long and with very little light and humor mixed in. That said, I am hoping that this season will be a little better. I know it's going to be serious with Teresa and Joe'sfraud case front and center and of course the typical friendship drama, but I'm still crossing my fingers for some humor and lighthearted moments this time. And these newbies will hopefully breathe some new life in!
Updated: Caroline Manzo also confirmed that she is officially not returning to the show. "Thanks 4 all the love today, I decided 2 leave #RHONJ but I'll be back this fall on @bravotv with Manzo'd With Children! Love you guys!"
Hey guys – Kim Kardashian needs some superficial attention over her appearance again! What would this woman do without social media – I am frightened just imagining it!
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star boasted that Kanye West gifted her with a giant wall of now-wilting flowers for her first Mother's Day, and since Kim never wants to let an opportunity to self-promote go to waste, she staged a so-called impromptu photoshoot in a see-thru white dress (negligee?) in front of the giant floral obstruction!
Not in attendance were several of Lisa's RHOBH co-stars, like Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster.
Reality Tea was invited to the opening party, but things have been a little too hectic around here, so we weren't able to peel ourselves away from the site and attend. BUT we do have the red carpet photos for you and that's the most important part!
