It’s here! BravoCon is underway and it all got started with the OG Real Housewives, which was only fitting. Andy Cohen hosted a panel called Bravo All Stars: OG Housewives Edition. Real Housewives of Orange County OG Jeana Keough was there. Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof represented Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. No one had any doubt that Jill Zarin would be there. She has been trying to return to Real Housewives of New York for years.

Kim Zolciak was there to dish on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Caroline Manzo weighed in on the Teresa Giudice’s recent interview with Andy. They all talked about the women they’re in touch with. Spoiler alert: Kim Z’s answer is actually very shocking. Adrienne reflects on her divorce from Paul Nassif. And Kim Richards talked about that infamous bunny moment with Lisa Rinna.

Who Are They In Touch With?

Jeana does not live nextdoor to Vicki Gunvalson anymore, but she did share that she still runs into Vicki and her fiancé Steve Lodge at restaurants. Jeana also shared, “I see and hear from Jo [de la Rosa].” She also joked, “I feel like I’m living with Gretchen [Rossi] because I follow her on Instagram,  I’m there every morning waking up with the baby.” Ain’t that the truth? Gretchen is all about the live updates.

Jill claimed that she’s still in touch with “all” of the RHONY ladies. Then, why isn’t she a cast member? Jill said, “All of them. Luann [de Lesseps], we’re very close. Sonja [Morgan], I spoke to three times already. Ramona [Singer] and I, we’re good right now.”

And get ready for this one. Kim Zolciak shared, “NeNe [Leakes] and I text.” THESE TWO ARE GOOD THESE DAYS. Wow, I am shook. Maybe there is some hope for that spin-off show they were trying to get going a few years ago. Kim is also “close” with Sheree Whitfield these days, but she has no idea if Sheree is still dating her prison boo Tyrone Gilliams.

Adrienne said that she saw Kyle Richards last week, at a party that Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards also attended. Yes, it was filmed. Adrienne is even in touch with Camille Grammer, which is not something many RHOBH ladies can say. Kim Richards joked “Well, my sister” when she was asked who she still talks to. However, as fans know, that wasn’t always a given. The Richards ladies have had their fair share of ups and downs. Kim also said that she is still friendly with Adrienne and Brandi.

Caroline still talks to Jacqueline Laurita, her sister-in-law, which isn’t at-all-surprising. She’s been friends with Dolores Catania for over 30 years, even though they weren’t Housewives at the same time. Caroline said, “I am big factor in her getting [on the show]. I was pushing her to get it because I thought she would be good.” And she is. Caroline also lives down the block from Kathy Wakile, Teresa’s least favorite cousin.

How Would Life Be Different Without Real Housewives?

Andy asked the ladies how their lives would be different without the show. Kim Zolciak pointed out the obvious: she met her husband Kroy Biermann while filming RHOA. She saw his booty and they’ve been together ever since. Adrienne doesn’t blame the show for her divorce with Paul. She thinks that they would have split up anyway, but “the show just sped it up a little bit.”

When asked about how the show has changed since her time, Jeana admitted that she was “jealous of the vacations.” On the bright side, she’s never had to deal with the Real Housewives vacation drama.

Kim On That Bunny Moment

No one will ever forget Kim Richards giving Lisa Rinna the bunny that she purchased for Kim’s grandson. Andy even has the bunny on the Watch What Happens Live set. Kim told Andy, “You had way too much fun with that.” Andy asked her, “Do you regret bringing the bunny?” Kim told him, “Yes and no.”

Jill On Luann’s Arrest

Andy asked Jill if she was surprise by Luann’s recent troubles. Jill admitted, “I’m very surprised. I know Luann. I am not surprised in some ways because I knew her. We’re all hypocrites. Let’s be honest.” Ain’t that the truth?

Caroline On Teresa’s Interview & Joe’s Pending Deportation

Caroline said Teresa “looked completely detached. She looked like she was on a couple of Xanax or something. I don’t blame her if she did, truthfully. That had to be a difficult moment for her. So, I give her that for doing it. But, it made me very, very, very sad because I like them together. There’s so much that you guys don’t see in a relationship that I saw.” Wow, Caroline is saying nice thinga about Teresa!? Wht is going on.

Caroline also said, “I, to this very second, am hoping [Joe Giudice] gets to come home, especially to his girls because he’s a wonderful, wonderful father. He loves them dearly. The marriage, clearly, to me, looks broken and that’s OK too. That happens. It happens.”
