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."
SinceTamra Judgeand Vicki are all about a 'Housewives Hazing' the two are speaking out about Lizzie (with Vicki apologizing for her behavior) and they're also speaking out about "chairgate" and Tamra's comments about Vicki's on-again/off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers.
"Watching this week's episode made me very upset on how I treated Lizzie when we first met," Vicki writes on her Bravo blog entitled 'I'm Not Proud of How I Treated Lizzie.'
"All I can say is that is not the person who I want to be, nor am I proud of how I talked to her when we were in the limo," Vicki continues. "There was a lot more to that limo ride which you didn't get to see, but either way, it was wrong of me and I have since apologized."
Kathy spoke out to E! News and confirmed she will be back in some capacity, but has largely departed from the show. "I'm so happy to be part of the Bravo family. I have enjoyed being a RHONJ Housewife and have now agreed to terms that give me the opportunity to film the show in a way which better suits my lifestyle," Kathy explains.
Just a little background if you have been living under a rock. The Real Housewives of New York City made the trek to Heather Thomson's retreat in the Berkshire. Drama started early when Kristen Taekman splashed Ramona Singer with a little water, in turn Ramona threw wine on her — for the second time in two episodes — followed by chucking the glass at her face. Then after a sort-of apology, Ramona used her childhood trauma to flee the vacation. Even though she had already been filmed packing and calling a friend for a ride to the Hamptons before her 'breakdown' that made her want to leave. Classy!
Per the usual with the end of a Housewives season, casting rumors are abound! However, given that Real Housewives of Atlanta ended on such a tumultuous note (albeit with the highest ratings in Housewives franchise history!) it's no surprise that some casting shakeups are likely.
There's been some reports claiming NeNe Leakes has been fired from the show that made her a household name for her lackluster storyline and ungracious behavior toward the network. I, for one, do not believe for a second that NeNe was fired. Especially with Bravo honcho Andy Cohen just giving an interview where he named her the HW he likes to have dinner with the most!
A source tells Life & Style, however, that Andy has tired of the monster he created! “He was pissed about the way that NeNe acted on the reunion this year, so much so that he might not ask her to come back,” the source says. “He thinks she has become a diva and was very irritated with her for not really answering his questions!”
