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.
Well, well, look what we have here! Our favorite emotional clown, Tinsley Mortimer has been spotted with cameras following her around in New York. It either means mother Dale Mercer now has her under constant surveillance or filming is underway for Real Housewives of New York. The franchise took a heavy hit with the announcement of Bethenny Frankel’s departure. We don’t know if she’s married, moving away, or if another fish is trying to kill her, but we wish her luck. Now that Bethenny has flown from the tragedy that is Tinsley’s love life, will we be sustained with
the last 15 minutes of LuAnn de Lesseps cabaret career?
Maybe not, thanks to Leah McSweeney. There has been speculation she is ready to jump in and filled the void left by Bethenny’s exit. Those are big shoes to fill, so good luck with that. Leah isn’t exactly a headline-maker. She is a single mom and founder of street brand, Married to the Mob. No word on whether or not she has dated Harry Dubin, which seems to be a requirement of most NY housewives. While details about Leah remain scarce, allegedly she likes people who text her back. Apparently Leah and Tinsley are hanging out, which is good because Tinsley needs a partner when FaceTiming her embryos. Now we wait and see who brings what to the table, and if Leah has an apple on her plate.
During the past year, former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino has been more in the public eye. Last summer, she and Jim Bellino announced that they were divorcing. Earlier this year, Alexis made her new relationship with Andy Bohn Instagram official. A short time later, Andy’s estranged wife Andrea Bohn pleaded for media privacy for their children in light of Alexis’ very public romantic announcement. Oh, Alexis!
It seems that all this new public attention may have whetted Alexis’ appetite for the spotlight once again. So what does one do to get back on reality television? As RHOC does not seem to be in any hurry to invite Alexis back, other options had to be explored. Fortunately for Alexis, she has now found her way back to the limelight. Did we ever really doubt that day would come?
The event that Bravo fans have been waiting for is upon us. The first-ever BravoCon is going down November 15-17 in New York City. This announcement came a couple of months ago, but no other information was released until late last week.
The tickets are not on sale, yet, but they will be next week and there are options for different schedules and budgets. Although, the event isn’t cheap, by any means. Will this be the most epic event of all time? Or the reality TV equivalent of the Fyre Festival? Let’s hope for the former.
Andy Cohen is the boss of all bosses. Somehow he is able to put up with dozens of Housewives across seven cities. That sounds like an exhausting job. However, someone has to do it! There are so many characters and personalities among the various cities. No two Housewives are alike, and we love that. The variety in each city is what makes the reality TV franchise something special to watch.
Andy has probably learned a lot from the various women that have been on the franchise. Between Watch What Happens Live and the reunions, he spends A LOT of time with them. Hopefully, some of their traits have rubbed off on him. Well, as long as he avoids the super shady and petty characteristics. We want to know who HE thinks he is similar to. Set the record straight Andy!
The Real Housewives of New York is wrapping up its first season since Carole Radziwill left. Viewers remember Carole spending most of last season arguing with former BFF Bethenny Frankel. With Carole being right about everything. And Bethenny being, well, wrong about everything. Because, we came to learn over time, Carole likes to be right.
Carole left RHONY in a blaze of her own glory, announcing she was leaving the show before the season even finished airing, which is a no-no in Housewife land. And she famously told Andy Cohen that he was full of sh*t at the reunion. At the time, Carole claimed she was leaving the show to pursue her journalism career. Recently, Carole revealed that there might have been more to it than that. Which we all probably suspected.
Pretty much every time Sonja Morgan is on Watch What Happens Live she reveals another celebrity who she’s had a… romantic past with.
Aside from that, Sonja discussed the last episode of Real Housewives of New York. She even dished on that Ramona Singer and Harry Dubin makeout session.
