During the TCA 2011 Winter Press Tour going on this week, Bravo announced several premiere dates and series renewals on Thursday.
The biggest announcement however came in the form of the widely talked about 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Bravo confirmed yesterday that it will be returning on Sunday, March 6 at 10pm.
Other big announcements included the return date of Bethenny Frankel’s show Bethenny Ever After (season 2), and the renewals of popular shows The Rachel Zoe Project (season 4), Millionaire Matchmaker (season 5) and Flipping Out (season 5). The recent season finale of Millionaire Matchmaker averaged 2.2 million viewers, the highest ratings ever in the show’s history, so the return is not a surprise.
Additionally, Bravo announced that casting is set to begin on the ninth season of Top Chef and that Top Chef Masters will return later this year for a third season with host Curtis Stone. Other shows renewed include Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. New shows coming this year include Platinum Hit with Kara DioGuardi which will debut this Summer and Rocco’s Dinner Party will air later this year. New series Million Dollar Decorators and Pregnant in Heels are both set to premiere in April.
A list of the shows announced with return dates below –
Million Dollar Listing – February 3 at 9 p.m
The Real Housewives of New York – February 15 at 10 p.m
Real Housewives of Orange County – March 6 at 10pm

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen will also be moving to new nights, Tuesdays and Sundays, though no official date was announced for the move.

Bravolebrity and celebrity stylist Rachel Zoeis finally confirming the sex of her baby!
In a new interview with Women’s Wear Daily, the Rachel Zoe Project star had a little slip of the tongue. While patting her stomach, Rachel stated, “It all depends on his arrival.”
According to the WWD article, Rachel’s husband of 12 years, Rodger Berman then kissed her belly and confirmed “It’s a little boy.”
Even more surprising, it turns out Rachel is 7 months pregnant! Rachel adds that she will be just one month away from giving birth when she dresses her A-list celeb clients for the Oscars this year.
When asked if she plans on slowing things down as she gets closer to her due date, Rachel replied, “I’ve been asked to slow down.” She added, “But to be totally honest, it’s kind of next to impossible when you’re planning your show and launching your collection, and in the middle of award season.”
Congrats to Rachel and Rodger. When it comes to another season of her Bravo show, Bravo has yet to officially confirm it’s in the works.
Rachel Zoe is finally confirming that she is literally pregnant!

Rachel and Rodger have been married for 12 years. She is reportedly 5 months along and is expecting a baby boy!
The 39-year-old stylist, who is 5 months pregnant with a baby boy, looked mighty refreshed and newly pulled at the “Artist’s Museum Happening” MOCA Los Angeles Gala held in Los Angeles. Rachel attended the event with husband Roger Berman and also took pictures with former assistant Brad Goreski.
We are no plastic surgery experts here at Reality Tea but Rachel looks to have had an eyebrow lift, facelift, along with some botox.

Just a week after news first hit about Rachel Zoebeing pregnant, UsWeekly is now confirming the news.
In the latest issue of the magazine, the pin-thin stylist who is a reported size 00 is confirmed to be expecting her first child with husband of 12 years Rodger Berman.
“It’s very hush-hush,” a source says of the Rachel Zoe Project star. “She’s telling people she can’t travel,” adds the insider. A witness adds that at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic event in L.A.’s Pacific Palisades area on Oct. 10, Rachel only sipped on water with lemon, while Rodger drank champagne.
Rachel’s former employee Brad Goreski also had the following to say to UsWeekly without confirming the pregnancy: “I hope to be in the delivery room!”
The above photo of Rachel, 39, was taken on Sunday, October 10. She looks to be sporting a slight baby bump no?
More photos of Rachel below. Must say we are shocked that someone of her size, in addition to her age was able to get pregnant. Congrats to Rachel and Rodger.
OK magazine is reporting that Rachel Zoe is preggos!
According to the magazine, the 39-year-old Rachel Zoe Project star is three months pregnant. Rachel and her husband Rodger Berman have reportedly started sharing “the news with her closest friends.”
OK adds that Rachel is expected to take a maternity leave from full-time styling immediately following next year’s Oscars.
“Rachel never really told anyone close to her that she and her husband Rodger were trying for a baby,” says the source. Now “she’s telling people that this is something that she and Rodger have wanted for many years and she’s finally at a level of success where she can afford to take some time off.”
Congrats to Rachel and Rodger if the news is true.
UPDATE – Though no retraction has been issued, Ok magazine has removed the story from their website.
Bananas! PEOPLE is reporting today that celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and her assistant Brad Goreskihave decided to go their separate ways.
According to the magazine, the “split” between The Rachel Zoe Project stars, effective Oct. 1, is amicable. “I love Rachel and she’s taught me everything I know,” Brad, 33, tells PEOPLE. “But there’s a point where either I do it now or I’ll never know what it’s like to spread my wings and soar.”
PEOPLE reports that Brad broke the news to Rachel a month ago. “We couldn’t stop hugging and we couldn’t stop crying,” Rachel tells the mag. “He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, ‘I’m here for you always.’”
When it comes to the future of her Bravo reality show, Rachel is certain about one thing – which is that no one can replace Brad. “I don’t want to hire somebody for the purpose of the show, we just got lucky. No one’s ever going to be Brad to me,” she said.
This news comes just months after Rachel fired her long time styling associate and assistant Taylor Jacobson. On the season premiere of the 3rd season, Rachel made references to Taylor stealing clothes and money from her company, a claim Taylor has since denied.
