BravoCon might be over, but the post event drama is still burning hot. So many of your favorite Bravolebs were in attendance for this iconic event. From The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Vanderpump Rules. They were all there. However, if you were expecting a “moment” between Lisa Vanderpump and her former costars, it didn’t happen. How great would that have been though?
Lisa’s shocking exit from Real Housewives sent everyone into a frenzy. The woman some people have crowned as the Queen Housewife had enough and walked away. It’s been over a year since Lisa stopped filming with the other women, so maybe she’d be open to reconciliation. It turns out time does not heal all wounds. If you were hoping to see Lisa and Kyle Richards interact, you were majorly let down.
Bravo, wanted the drama and got the drama. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with the core cast on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After rumors of a dud season surfaced, executives have
begged called Camille Grammer back onto the front lines. As an added bonus, we learned Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards will be providing back up support.
The returning ladies have allegedly fallen victim to “getting along”, if you believe their side of the story. This was their season to break free from the
popularity burden of Lisa Vanderpump, who apparently was the source of endless betrayal and arguments amongst the group. After Lisa’s departure, Bangs Kyle Richards and crew were transported to a magical place of fairies and flying dolphins, with nary an unkind word in sight. That’s just not going to work, darling. With hopes of spicing up the episodes, Brandi and Camille are already earning their checks. Currently, their war of words is going down on Twitter. Fortunately for fans of the show, the former full-time stars know their roles and know them well.
The Bravolebrities all went to New York City for BravoCon, which had to be awkward, especially for anyone currently embroiled in a feud. Even though Lisa Vanderpump left Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mid-season and ditched the reunion, she still has her own show, Vanderpump Rules. So, of course, she went to BravoCon to represent. The only problem is that Lisa’s former RHOBH costars were in the house as well.
On Friday night, Andy Cohen taped a special episode of Watch What Happens Live, which aired last night, with a ton of Bravo stars. Lisa was there with the Pump Rules crew. After her interview segment with Andy, she peaced out, apparently. Did she just have a better place to be? Was it simply time for bed? Or was she trying to avoid Kyle Richards and the rest of them?
Before the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, most of us probably did not know who Camille Grammer was. We might have had a vague idea she was the wife of Kelsey Grammer, but beyond that, she was relatively anonymous. All that changed in a big way once Camille became a Housewife. By the end of season 1, Camille was well-known to Bravo fans for her snarky personality and feud with co-star Kyle Richards. And then her marriage ended in a very public way, with Kelsey leaving her for another woman.
Since Camille and Kelsey’s split in 2010, she has taken many public digs at him. For his part, Kelsey has largely remained silent, getting in an occasional zinger towards his ex. Kelsey’s mostly zipped lips opened up in a recent interview in which he alleged Camille asked him for a divorce right after he had a heart attack and on the day of his mother’s funeral. In the interview, he referred to Camille as his “third wife.” Kelsey also said the amount of talking Camille has done about him publicly is “pathetic.” Of course, we all knew Camille would answer back. And she has.
This weekend is the first ever BravoCon. I have to admit that it sounds like a lot of fun. Tickets for the event went on sale in August and sold out immediately. Three days of all your favorite Bravo reality stars from all your favorite shows. The convention is featuring panels, photo ops, live shows and more. There is even going to be a Real Housewives Museum with photos, dresses worn at the reunions and Housewives memorabilia. Maybe Real Housewives of New York’s Aviva Drescher’s famously tossed prosthetic leg will make a guest appearance!
Bravo fans attending the event will also be able to try a special product inspired by one of the network’s favorite stars. Vanderpump Rules’ Lisa Vanderpump is being honored with a sparkling rosé that will debut at BravoCon.
There have been some pretty awful husbands in Real Housewives history. Up there with the best of the worst is Kelsey Grammer. He infamously encouraged Camille Grammer to sign on for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so she would have something to do… while he had an affair in New York.
I will never get over watching Camille get ready for the Tony Awards, knowing that their marriage was over and that she had to “put on a brave face,” while hoping they could still work things out in their marriage. Camille was enemy number one that season, yet most viewers couldn’t help feeling for her in that tough situation. Since then, Camille has been very vocal about their relationship. She has poked fun at his…ummm… manhood on multiple occasions. She even claimed that he asked her to use a strap-on in a TMI moment from last season. Camille has also said on many occasions that they solely communicate through a third party instead of co-parenting their two kids together. Now, Kelsey is speaking out.
