Reality television is ruled by Bravo and the network that boasts the most crazy, chaotic 'rich' people behaving badly has just announced a bevy of new and returning shows!
First up, the returning! Super successful rookie shows Below Deck and Newlyweds: The First Year will all have a second season – both with new casts! Thicker Than Water and the surprise hit Blood, Sweat, and Heels will also have sophomore seasons. Also renewed was Kim Zolciak's spinoff Don't Be Tardy and Lisa Vanderpump's spinoff Vanderpump Rules. Interestingly I did not see I Dream of NeNe anywhere on that list! However, I'm positive that will be back!

Veteran shows Million Dollar Listing LA, Emmy award-winning Top Chef, and
deplorable Shahs of Sunset will also return (which means Lilly Ghalichi's engagement was probably filmed – we hope!), along with Millionaire Matchmaker (who watches that?!). Sadly, I do not see Tabatha Takes Over or Interior Therapy (which fared well in the ratings) on the list – two of my favorite Bravo shows. They could be announced in the Fall lineup, however. <fingers crossed>
Rachel Zoe's show The Rachel Zoe Project seems to be officially dropped after a couple seasons of tanking ratings. It seems Princesses: Long Island was also officially canned – I know some of you Ashlee White lovers will be disappointed! <eye roll>
Of course all the Real Housewives shows will return… except for Real Housewives of Miami! After three seasons of poor ratings and storylines that just did not capture the audience Bravo does not have the show on their renewal list. There were conflicting reports about whether or not it would return, but it appears we're waving goodbye to this HW franchise. Unless they're pushing it to late fall…
Now Andy Cohen has stated numerous times they are looking to expand the franchise, so I wouldn't be surprised to learn that a new city is in the works. For some reason Miami just couldn't get it together. I personally think last season's recast was the final death knell. I also believe Andy will not let the glorious Lea Black or the dramaful Joanna Krupa go to waste so I'm positive we'll see those two in some capacity again! Rumor has it Joanna is plotting a move to RHOBH!
Now for the new shows! Kandi Burruss' wedding spinoff was officially announced, yet is still untitled. Obviously Manzo'd With Children will be airing shortly. However several new shows also look promising, one is Ladies of London which seems like Real Housewives set in Britain (yay!).
Euros of Hollywood focuses on European jet-setters who live in LA. Top Chefs Duels combines Top Chef and Top Chef Masters and is hosted by Curtis Stone (can't let that hotness go to waste!). Also added is Game of Crowns, a pageant-based show surrounding the Mrs. circuit, which will premiere in July. Also on the list are Jersey Belle about Hollywood publicist, Jaime Primak Sullivan when she marries a Southern gentleman, Untying The Knot, which is a show about a divorce mediator and may just feature some of our couples from last season's Newlyweds (I kid…) and Extreme Guide to Parenting.
Finally Bravo adds another city to the Million Dollar Listing franchise and will debut Million Dollar Listing: Miami, which will hopefully fare better than its Miami Housewives counterpart!
