Ok, Bravoians – get ready for the new line-up! Bravo has officially released the list of upcoming shows and it includes eleven all-new reality shows and eight returning gems!  Among the most exciting news is that Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has scored her own show about celebrity hotspot SUR and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burrussspin-off The Kandi Factory has also been added to the permanent roster!

Here’s the list of what’s to come!

“Silicon Valley” Bravo captures the intertwining lives of young professionals on the path to becoming Silicon Valley’s next great success stories.

“Life After Top Chef” For the first time cameras are taken outside of the “Top Chef” kitchen and into the lives of Bravo’s most beloved former cheftestants as they reach milestones in their personal lives and culinary careers. From opening their own restaurants to expanding their growing franchises, viewers will follow Jen Carroll in Philadelphia, Richard Blais in Atlanta, Fabio Viviani in Los Angeles and Spike Mendelsohn in DC.

“Below Deck” The upstairs and downstairs worlds collide when this young and single crew of “yachties” live, love and work together onboard a luxurious mega yacht while tending to the ever-changing needs of their wealthy, demanding charter guests.

“Huh?” Ever wonder who is behind those hilarious cat memes? Bravo goes inside the office of Ben Huh and his eclectic staff at icanhascheezburger.com, one of the largest humor publishers on the Internet known for their popular LOLs and FAILs.

“Miss Advised” These single relationship experts can’t seem to practice what they preach as Amy Laurent in New York, Emily Morse in San Francisco and Julia Allison in Los Angeles struggle to stay afloat in the deep end of the dating pool.

“Newlyweds: The First Year”From the moment they say “I do” to their one-year anniversary, cameras capture diverse couples across the coasts experiencing the trials and tribulations of their first year of marriage.

“Gallery Girls” Viewers are introduced to seven young women who dream of living a chic and fashionable existence in New York City. All share a passion for art, but are divided amongst their Manhattan and Brooklyn lifestyles with vastly different attitudes and tastes towards fashion, art and men.

“LA Shrinks” It takes one to treat one! The professional and personal lives of dynamic experts are exposed as they counsel a wide array of clients at some of the top private practices in Los Angeles.

“Decades” Renowned boutique owners, Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver, show off their exclusive and glamorous world of vintage couture filled with Givenchy, Balenciaga and Chanel.

The official preview trailer for all the new reality gems is below!

And now for the list of returning shows. I was surprised to see Chef Roblé & Co and Pregnant in Heels (although I kinda liked that show) coming back. Also returning is Flipping Out, Tabatha Takes Over, Top Chef (including Last Chance Kitchen), Top Chef Masters  Million Dollar Listing, Million Dollar Decorators, and Inside The Actors Studio – which will feature the cast of Mad Men.

I was very surprised not to see the Rachel Zoe Project on the list!

And branching out, Bravo also announced the arrival of two scripted shows! “22 Birthdays” focuses on the sordid and scandalous activities of a group of parents at an exclusive private school, with each episode centered around an extravagant and lavish birthday party. And “Blowing Sunshine” is set at a fictional private rehabilitation center and follows its staff and high profile patients.

Moving on, last night Andy Cohen hosted the Watch What Happens Live All-Star Party. Among the proceedings was the official unveiling of the three new Real Housewives of New York; which was pretty much reality television’s worst kept secret. Well, it’s official Carole Radziwill, Aviva Drescher, and Heather Thomson will be embarrassing themselves on our TVs very soon!

A preview of the upcoming explosive season was revealed and it appears that the rumors of Pinot Singer not getting along with any of her fellow Housewives are confirmed! She goes to battle with everyone and may soon find herself on the Jill Zarin side of things if she keeps this up! The new ladies were shown banding together in an act of solidarity against “mean girl” behavior.

Among last night’s surprising events was the conspicuous absence of Teresa Giudice! The entire Real Housewives of New Jersey cast was spotted together on the red carpet and participated in the Housewives East vs. West Battle Royale, but there was no Teresa in sight! It is well established that Teresa is not speaking to any of her castmates and rumors have been swirling that she’s headed for a spin-off following the explosive fourth season, airing later this month!

Also interesting was that Lisa did not sit with her fellow RHOBH castmates and instead took the stage solo for a sit-down with Andy. She also skipped the Housewives battle. Perhaps confirming the casting gossip that Taylor Armstrong and Kim Richards are returning next season was their attendance. Oddly, Brandi Glanville was not in the audience!

Finally, the most troubling events of last night were the musical performances of Melissa Gorga and LuAnn de Lesseps. Now I love you both, but please believe – you cannot sing! Step away from the microphones…

THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SHOWS – WHAT WILL YOU BE WATCHING? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR KANDI AND LISA’S SPIN-OFFS? DID YOU WATCH THE ALL-STAR PARTY LAST NIGHT?

According to a new report, things recently got pretty tense between the stars of the Real Housewives of New York City and Bravo!

The reason? The returning RHONY housewives–Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Countess LuAnn de Lessepsfelt filming on the new season was dragging on too long and wanted Bravo to either pay up or wrap it up!

“LuAnn [de Lesseps], Sonja [Morgan] and Ramona [Singer] refused to shoot any scenes at Fashion Week in February, complaining that production was dragging on well past the date that was agreed upon, so they went on strike,” one of the original cast members tells the Huffington Post. “Ultimately, they did return to tape a final few scenes, but it’s not fair that they should have to give up their time, with no extra pay, just so the slower new girls can learn how to tape a TV show.”

The Huffington Post adds that filming typically takes place from September to February, occasionally going one to two weeks over schedule . Ramona was reportedly the first to start the revolt, leading to the other vets Countess Lulu and Sonja to follow suit, in what is quickly becoming the newbies vs. the vets.

“They might call it a strike, but the network sees it more as a little disagreement,” reveals a Bravo insider. “In the end, the ladies that didn’t make themselves available to shoot only hurt themselves, as it means the new girls will get extra airtime.”

The insider goes on to add: “What I can guarantee you is that if Ramona thinks she is going to win by messing with the new ladies, she can think again. These girls are killers.” Meow!

There’s no word yet on when the new RHONY season will premiere. It will be interesting to see how all the drama plays out with the three new additions to the cast, though I still strongly believe Bravo should have kept Alex McCord!

TELL US – SHOULD THE HOUSEWIVES BE PAID EXTRA IF FILMING GOES OVER SCHEDULE?


Oh, lawd. Get ready for some middle-aged, nudie action in the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York! An insider reveals that the show has just finished taping its fifth season and producers are claiming this will be the best season yet, as the ladies travel the globe in high-flying adventures. Isn’t this supposed to be a show about their “real” lives? Oh, what am I saying…

Spilling the dirt to The Huffington Post, show insiders reveal that the ladies built a Survivor-style alliance and even skinny dipped on a scandalous and drunken cast trip to St. Barts! Um… say what? “Sonja [Morgan] and Ramona [Singer] have totally bonded and formed a great alliance against the new ladies,” an insider reveals. Which, means there is much more Ramonja to come. “They are so inseparable this season that they shared a bed together in St. Barts and even went skinny dipping late one night after enjoying a few glasses of Ramona’s wine.” Ack. I hope those black modesty bars are on point, editing team!

Sonja confirms the skinny dip (because Sonja loves flaunting her lady bits, as we all know), but she’s not giving away too many details! “You know me, I always skinny dip,” Sonja shares. “Why else would you rent a house? I can’t tell you if I did it on film or if I did it with Ramona because that would be a storyline and I can get in trouble for that according to my contract.”

But, even though there were some happy, touchy-feely, friendsy moments, the season was not without its drama and catfights, as it seems, class wars began among the gals! “This season you will see the ladies travel to London, where Carole [Radziwill] thinks it’s so funny that LuAnn [de Lesseps] insists everyone call her ,’The Countess,’ that she makes all the ladies refer to her as ‘The Princess’ to mock her,” one of the ladies dished. In case you didn’t know, Carole was once married to PRINCE Anthony Radziwill, son of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis‘ sister Lee. Sucks to be LuLu,  a princess title trumps that of countess!

Ramona has some serious animosity towards the new additions. Maybe she was missing Jill Zarin and wanted to relive the old times! Previous reports have claimed the new ladies were annoyed by her diva attitude and constant demands! “Ramona now thinks it’s her show for sure,” an insider spills.

“Things between Ramona and the new ones get so bad at one point they even discussed recreating the bathroom scene from the film ‘Bridesmaids’ after Ramona gives them her new red wine to taste.” Whoa! And Pinot Singer has another wine? Can I still call her Pinot? The Bravo Home Shopping Network rages on!

And speaking of the Bravo Home Shopping Network (BHSN, for short), the ratings for the season premiere of Bethenny Ever After are in and they are less than stellar!

Despite the heavy hype this season received, according to TV By The Numbers, the third season premiere brought in a shockingly low 971,000 viewers! To put it in perspective, the season premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County brought in 2.3 million viewers, which is typical for a mainstream Bravo show. It’s a good thing Bethenny has quit her day job and is moving (hopefully) into the talk show circuit!

Even more upsetting, Bethenny Frankel‘s numbers have dropped drastically, compared to past seasons. The season premiere of Bethenny Getting Married? drew an impressive 2.096 million viewers and ranked as the highest rated series premiere in the network’s history. Season two garnered a still respectable 1.5M viewers for the season premiere and ratings remained firm throughout the season.

Unfortunately, it seems many audiences may have grown tired of Bethenny’s woe is me shtick, or maybe, just maybe, after the whole lost at sea debacle viewers got an inkling of the fabricated drama and shied away. Or perhaps, there was some mighty good TV on Monday night. I know I was watching Ben Flajnik have a creepy mock wedding with Courtney Robertson, who professed her love by stealing Carrie Bradshaw‘s break-up speech.

The low ratings may be a blessing in disguise (unless you’re a Frankelenzombie), because Bethenny and husband, Jason Hoppy have expressed their desire to leave reality television behind after this season.

ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW SEASON OF RHONY? DO YOU BELIEVE RAMONA IS AN OUT OF CONTROL DIVA? ARE YOU SURPRISED BY BETHENNY’S RATINGS – DID YOU WATCH MONDAY NIGHT’S EPISODE?

Real Housewives Of New York City star, Ramona Singer, is showing off her bikini body!

The 55-year-old Bravo housewife was spotted poolside, soaking up the sun in a blue bikini, on Tuesday, during her vacation in Miami.

Her husband, Mario Singer, and daughter, Avery Singer, were also at the pool while the RHONY star layed out getting a tan, before heading to the airport to make her way back home to New York.

It’s hard to believe, looking back, that Jill Zarin and Ramona Singer were ever friends. Well, not friends, per se, but at least frienemies! And after four seasons and one firing, the duo whose relationship rapidly deteriorated into a ‘her or me’ situation at Bravo still can’t stand each other!

Speaking to HollywoodLife, Ramona opens up about her animosity towards a certain former co-star! “Jill and I, it’s really funny because we were better friends before the show aired than now,” Ramona explains. “But you know, we’re still … when I see her, we’re still friendly. But do I spend time with her? No.”

And Ramona is still accusing Jill of talking about her to the media! “She makes up stories just for the press. If she were a different type of person, I would talk about it.”

Ramona still likes one of her former co-workers though – she is still the best of friends with Alex McCord! Am I the only person who just simply doesn’t buy this? “The only person I spend time with is Alex,” Ramona reveals. “I’ve always been friends with [her] on and off camera.”

“When you’re good friends with someone, you’re good friends forever,” Ramona added. “With Alex and I, we did develop a true friendship and I will always be there if she needs me. I know she’ll be there for me.”

“Whenever I pick up the phone with her, it’s just like I saw her yesterday,” she describes. “That’s what true friendship is.” Well, that’s very nice.

Moving on, Jill is still selling shapewear—she’ll be on HSN very soon—and she is still talking Real Housewives of New York! The former reality star, who claims to be in talks with Fox for her own show, says she has no hard feelings towards her still employed former co-stars.

“I will definitely watch next season of the Real Housewives of New York, I am looking forward to it,” Jill insists to RadarOnline. “It is funny how the press misrepresents me sometimes but the truth is that I have absolutely no animosity towards the show, Bravo or any of the girls, I wish them all the best and am sure the show is going to do very well.”

She also reminds us that even girls with hot bodies like Kelly Bensimon and LuAnn de Lesseps wear shapewear. “Countess Luann and Kelly have great bodies and they were fighting over my shape wear, they both wear it, you would be surprised to hear the list of people who wear it!” Those two fighting over shapewear? Now that’s some footage I don’t want to see!

SHOULD RAMONA AND JILL GET OVER THEIR FEUD ALREADY? DO YOU BELIEVE RAMONA AND ALEX HAVE AN AUTHENTIC FRIENDSHIP? IS JILL OVER BEING FIRED OR NOT?


In the approximately five billion years it has taken to shoot the re-tooled fifth season of Real Housewives of New York, the ladies get to go on yet another Bravo-sponsored vacation.

If you recall, earlier reports leaked that the gals had taken a trip to London in addition to a trip to South Beach which gifted us these photos. Now that it’s winter, the cast headed down to St. Barts.

New cast members Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill decided to show off their smoking hot figures while veterans Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer sat around getting drunk and being judgey (so, like any normal day on the RHONY set). I’m sure personal trainers are so proud of them in this moment. Check out the photos of them below!

Meanwhile, the NY Post wrote a scathing report about newbie Carole. According to The Post, Carole, who is related to the Kennedys by marriage, is failing to bring any class to the show. The report states that while filming in St. Barts, Carole was was spotted partying with her costars – Ramona, Sonja, LuAnn and others — at Le Ti, a cabaret-themed night.

A source revealed, “Le Ti has a dress-up shop with items to suit every fetish. By the end of the night, all the housewives were in tiny red pirate outfits with Jack Sparrow hats, and exposed midriffs gyrating on the dance floor.”

The source continues of Caroline, who has won three Emmys for her writing: “It’s sad to see Carole, a journalist, former ABC news producer and whose husband [Prince Anthony Radziwill] was the cousin of John F. Kennedy Jr., stooping to this level. She must really need the money.”

Back in New York, former failed housewife Cindy Barshop of the Vajazzling Barshops decided to introduce yet another product to the market that no one needed: fur merkins for your lady bits, available at her Completely Bare spa in New York. In case you get cold from all those Brazilian waxes. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can add a little something different to your nether regions for two Benjamins.

The ‘Foxy Bikini’ is available at $225 and the ‘Carnivale’ for $195. According to the Completely Bare website, both of these services can also be added on to your laser hair removal or waxing appointment. It seems to me you can skip the wax altogether and achieve the same effect. Am I right, ladies?

Cindy is getting some serious backlash from animal rights group PETA on the merkins which are made from real fur and calls the merkins “outright sleazy, and downright cruel.” Cindy responded by saying it is her right to stage a lame publicity stunt for her businesses, “wear fur down there” and hopes PETA will “respect that.”

Also below are photos of Cindy’s fur merkins!

The busiest man in reality television, and our lord and savior, Andy Cohen, has evolved from a behind the scenes player and “that dude who hosted the reunion show” to a full-fledged celeb in his own right, and is poised to become even more well-known now that his quirky talk show Watch What Happens Live is now on a whole five nights a week.

There’s no doubt Andy played a huge role in Bravo’s transformation from obscure basic cable network to one of the nation’s main suppliers of rich people drama and D-listers. While he’ll be putting in much more time on-camera these days that doesn’t mean he’ll be abandoning his role as Executive Producer, telling the Hollywood Reporter that he’ll “remain in charge of all development and talent” (his use of the word talent makes me think of Andy as a Barbizon modeling agent!) and will remain an executive producer of Top Chef and all iterations of Real Housewives.

While he admits that this will remove “twenty something” odd shows from his workload, he is still very involved in a few projects featuring stars Bravo basically created including Jeff Lewis and Bethenny Frankel:Jeff Lewis has an incredible new show coming on, Interior Therapy, we’re in post on that show, I can’t imagine stopping watching rough cuts of that show. I’m very invested in it and I want it to be right. I just got two new episodes of Bethenny Frankel’s new show today, I’m seven in already, and I probably want to finish that season out. So, there’s a lot of work that I feel I will probably continue doing.”

Given the success of the shows Andy has had his hand in, we doubt his bosses at Bravo would want him to stop producing shows, either. His influence can definitely be felt in other shows, especially with his crown jewels — Real Housewives and Top Chef; he admits to THR that there are “at least 25 Housewives rip off shows right now.”

Speaking of the Housewives, in a separate interview with Wetpaint, Andy lets Jill Zarin finally score a point in the ongoing media war that is her existence by giving her credit for finding Bethenny and Ramona Singer on Real Housewives of New York, saying “Jill helped us cast Bethenny and Ramona. She absolutely did.”

Andy, however, makes it clear that he doesn’t believe Jill deserves a commission for that. If you recall, Jill revealed last week that she wanted a finder’s fee for discovering Bethenny. “I don’t get a commission for it,” said Andy. “She’s done very well from the show, so that’s her commission. But she did [help cast them]. She absolutely can take credit for finding Bethenny and Ramona.”

He also stands by his decision to let Jill go, along with her co-stars Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, claiming, as Jill has probably said to her daughter hundreds of times, that its for the show’s own good: “And I just think, whether the ratings are down this season or up, for the long-term health of the New York Housewives, we did the right thing.”

TELL US: ARE YOU ENJOYING THE DAILY EDITIONS OF WATCH WHAT HAPPENS? WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE THE HOUSEWIVES RIP-OFF SHOWS? DO YOU THINK JILL ZARIN DESERVES COMMISSION FOR FINDING BETHENNY AND RAMONA? IS ANDY COHEN YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR?

Oh the horror. According to a new report, fired Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin is in serious talks for her own reality show!

Even more horrific, if all works out for Jill, the show will be on FOX a.k.a. a major network. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news yesterday with sources telling the site FOX is in talks with Jill about her own show to be tentatively titled The Beverly Jillbillies.

Jill’s show will be based on her move to Los Angeles to build her own fashion empire. The show’s producers and FOX declined to comment on the news, while Jill has recently admitted she is currently house-hunting in Los Angeles. Let’s not count those eggs before they hatch now Jill!

Since being fired by Bravo last September, Jill has continued to leak out stories stories have continued to magically appear on blogs about Jill getting a spinoff. I’m, however, having major doubts that Jill will get a show at least not on FOX as most major non-cable networks tend to shy away from personal reality shows instead focusing on more competition based reality shows such as American Idol, Survivor, etc.

Moving on to some not so scary news as another report is stating Ramona Singer wants in on the Celebrity Apprentice action! Okay maybe this is just as scary as the previous story.

Following Nene Leakes’ appearance on the show last season and NJ Housewife Teresa Giudice’s appearance on the upcoming season, Ramona apparently feels she should be next.

A source reveals to amNewYork that Ramona is “trying to convince” Donald Trump to cast her in the next season of his NBC show. Ramona, never one to shy away from an awkward public moment, even brought up the idea to The Donald while she attended a recent function with him in Florida days ago.

“Ramona says that if ["Real Housewives of New Jersey" star] Teresa Giudice can compete, then Ramona most certainly can,” the source said.

Well, she does have that whole crazy, unpredictable and combative housewife flare down so perhaps she is a perfect fit for the show afterall!
