Kate Chastain has had to make a life on land for herself after quitting Below Deck last season. The original chief stew that regaled us for years with her pithy, dry sarcasm is the queen of Bravo talk shows now. She co-hosts Bravo’s Chat Room with Gizelle Bryant, Porsha Williams, and Hannah Berner. Kate also appeared on Galley Talk with other Below Deck Alums.
Recently, Kate was looking for some new artwork to adorn her wall for the show. She attempted to purchase a piece, but found that her supposed clout from Below Deck did not transfer to negotiating a sale with an in demand artist.
Currently, Candiace Dillard’s biggest adversary is Monique Samuels, followed close behind by Ashley Darby.
Last season on Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace’s biggest foe was her own mother, Dorothy Dillard, even though she Wass paying Candiace’s bills. Dorothy tried to get Candiace to uninvited her half-brother from her wedding. She also slapped Candiace in the face with a big purse during a disagreement. Dorothy and Candiace had so much drama last season that Dorothy got her own segment on the reunion.
Following the news that Real Housewives of Atlanta has halted production after a member of production contracted coronavirus, Porsha Williams revealed that she was recently hospitalized.
At this point, it’s unclear why Porsha was in the hospital.
This summer, Scheana Shay opened up about the miscarriage she experienced with Brock Davies. She shared that pregnant Stassi Schroeder was super supportive during that time, which apparently bothered Stassi even though it’s the only genuinely positive publicity she’s shared in a while. Now, Stassi and Scheana aren’t friends… again.
Scheana and Lala Kent publicly feuded when Scheana wasn’t invited to Lala and Randall Emmett’s gender reveal event. Then, Scheana crossed paths with Stassi and Lala at Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s gender reveal, which had to be awkward.
Bravo is trying really hard to make Kate Chastain a thing in her post-Below Deck life. First, Andy Cohen gave Kate a short-lived radio show. Now, she’s hosting a talk show with Porsha Williams, Gizelle Bryant, and Hannah Berner. She also appears on special editions of Below Deck Med episodes, which are just the previous week’s episode with additional commentary from Kate.
However, she’s actually interested in joining another Bravo TV show.
Raise your hand if you’re watching Bravo’s Chat Room, I’ll wait. The new nightly talk show is hosted by various Bravolebrities. Porsha Williams is representing Real Housewives of Atlanta, much to NeNe Leakes’ dismay. Hannah Berner from Summer House holds a spot. Gizelle Bryant from Real Housewives of Potomac and Below Deck alum Kate Chastain round out the rest of the cast. They dish about subjects related to pop culture and of course Bravo
Bravo fucking Bravo. As you may know, Real Housewives of New York is getting a new cast member. Eboni K. Williams is preparing for her first season and she’s the first black cast member of RHONY.
Eboni will be a huge asset in several ways. She is a lawyer, honey. So out of the gate you know she can talk. Gizelle is particularly pleased to see Eboni come on board. See, Giz has beef with Ramona Singer. Ramona shooed Giz out of a photo in July 2019 and the incident has been burned in Gizelle’s brain ever since. Not much can get under Ramona’s very renewed skin, but Gizelle is hoping Eboni manages to provide a challenge for the veteran and just maybe send the Ramonacoaster off the rails.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Bravo has had to become creative putting together new shows. They’ve shot confessionals at home and reunions via zoom. It’s not the same, but it’s better than nothing, and these efforts are appreciated by the fans who are watching at home.
Now, there’s a new Zoom talk show coming up with a pretty random, all-star cast. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and Below Deck alum Kate Chastain will executive produce and host Bravo’s Chat Room along with Potomac Housewife Gizelle Bryant and Hannah Berner from Summer House.
Good news, Good Vibe Tribe! In the immortal words of Kyle Cooke, “Summer should be fun,” and this one is finally looking up.
After the global coronavirus pandemic threw the future of Summer House into question, a new report confirms production has been given the green light for Season 5.
