Andy Cohen Announces Watch What Happens Live Special With Bravo Kids Featuring Gia Giudice, Frankie Catania, Riley Burruss & More

You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?

While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.

Yesterday on Facebook, Andy released the big news that Bravo is doing a special episode of Watch What Happens Live staring some of the “children” we’ve watched grow up over the years. All of them are well over 18-years-old, so no one should be particularly traumatized by the subject matter. Andy wrote, “We’re gearing up for a special Bravo Kids episode of #WWHL with Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, Frankie Catania, Briana Culberson, Gia Giudice, Shane Keough, Victoria de Lesseps, Albie & Chris Manzo, Brooks Marks, Noelle Robinson, Avery Singer, and Kairo Whitfield! Post all of your questions for them, NOW!”

All jokes aside, this should be a very good show. From the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise we’ll see, Brielle, Riley, Kairo, and Noelle. No word on whether or not Brielle is doing this for John Legend tickets. Poor Kairo will probably be on the receiving end of some questionable comments by Andy, but the man has the bone structure of an actual god, so I can’t blame him. Maybe he’ll be wearing the coveted SHE by Shereé joggers that don’t exist! Hopefully Kandi Burruss’ daughter Riley can share what college life is like in NYC and avoid asking fans to send her birthday money.

Cynthia Bailey’s daughter Noelle is showing up too. At this time we do not know if NeNe Leakes is preparing a YouTube video claiming Bravo hates everyone, but specifically her, because Bryson Bryant and Brentt Leakes weren’t invited.

Several Real Housewives of New Jersey movers and shakers will be there too. Perhaps this will be Gia’s moment in the spotlight to revive her hit, “Woke Up In The Mornin‘”. Delores Catania’s son Frankie will join Gia and they are both probably happy their moms are staying home. Albie and Chris Manzo are also coming along for the ride, which is great because we all need an update on the strip club car wash.

Real Housewives of Orange County fans can relax because Briana Culberson and Shane Keough will make an appearance. I would like to ask Briana who is more polarizing, Brooks Marks or Brooks Ayers. Briana has always been very refreshing, which is a stark contrast to Vicki Gunvalson’s tumultuous time on RHOC. Of course after this past trainwreck season, we didn’t know how good we used to have it. As for Brooks Marks, he is the only Real Housewives of Salt Lake City “kid” coming on. Oh how I’ve missed that RHOSLC vocal fry, said no one.

Obviously Real Housewives of New York cannot be left out. Luann de Lesseps’ daughter Victoria will show up. She’s an artist and all cool, not like, uncool. Ray of sunshine Avery Singer is appearing as well. Hopefully Avery isn’t triggered by seeing a FedEx truck before filming, so she’ll be in a good mood. I have to assume Alex McCord’s sons, Francois van Kempen and Johan van Kempen were otherwise previously engaged.

Will this be messy? On a scale of 1-10, I give it a solid 6 of possible messiness. These are grown folks now and the kids were traditionally more adult than the actual adults anyway. But you never know what sparks will fly due to the relationships some of the mothers have with each other. At this time there is no air or filming date for the special, but the crossover we didn’t know we wanted is on the way.
