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.
On the Real Housewives of New York reunion, Dorinda Medley compared Barbara Kavovit to a turnip in a fruit basket. Aside from the time Dorinda kicked Barbara out of their apartment, the two of them never truly went at it during the season.
At the start, Barbara disinvited Dorinda from her clambake, which was a total mistake. Barbara could have blessed us all with another epic scene of Dorinda angrily slurring. Instead, Barbara just fell flat this season. For the most part, she did nothing terribly wrong. Yes, she had another hot mic moment aimed at Luann de Lesseps, but as Luann said herself, Lu is no Adele.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of New York was all about the cabaret, I mean Luann de Lesseps. She got on every single cast member’s nerves (and a lot of the viewers’) and seemed to have no idea why. She just assumed it was “jealousy” because she is “such a big cabaret star” now. Please, girl.
She made everything about Luann and only Luann, with zero clue about how she came across. Even after watching the episodes, Luann still wondered if the other women were jealous of her. NO NO NO NO. Even, Sonja Morgan, who tries so hard to be neutral and see the good in Luann could not help being miffed by her diva antics.
It’s always magic when Real Housewives collide! Recently Melissa Gorga, Porsha Williams, and Sonja Morgan collaborated on a music video. The subject, of course, is something that the ladies know a little something about– getting work done. Melissa, Sonja, and Porsha all sing different sections of the song. And somewhere, cabaret star Luann de Lesseps is warbling a sad song next to a piano.
The video also features appearances by Dorinda Medley and Tamra Judge. The hilarious video is a commercial for a new Fiber One low-calorie snack bar. But I am here for it! I love when Dorinda says “Clip!” at the end.
There’s just something so special about Real Housewives from different shows coming together no matter what the reason is. Whether it’s a joint appearance on Watch What Happens Live, an Instagram photo together, or some other event, it’s just always fun to see Real Housewives interacting.
Recently, Melissa Gorga, Sonja Morgan, and Porsha Williams collaborated on a song about something they know well: gettting work done. They even filmed a music video for the track, which included funny appearances from Dorinda Medley and Tamra Judge.
No one can deny that Season 11 of Real Housewives of New York has centered around Luann de Lesseps. She is still dealing with the aftershocks of her December 2017 arrest in Palm Beach, Florida. Luann was arrested for resisting arrest with violence, battery on an officer, and disorderly intoxication.
Luann violated her probation by drinking, and ultimately obtained a new plea deal in May. This deal comes with some extra restrictions. Apparently, having a busy cabaret schedule isn’t an excuse for blowing off probation. Luann landed in rehab for a second time.
On her way to becoming a celebrated cabaret performer, Luann de Lesseps hit a few bumps in the road. And luckily the Real Housewives of New York cameras have documented all the drama. One of those bumps was marrying, and then divorcing, Tom D’Agostino after seven months of wedded
warfare bliss. Luann was arrested in Palm Beach in December of 2017 for charges including disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence. She swiftly entered rehab.
But Luann violated the terms of her probation by drinking, and later agreed to a new plea deal in May of 2019. She was also sued by her ex-husband and her two children for violating the terms of her divorce agreement.
Well, it is with great sadness that I announce Real Housewives Of New York season 11 has come to an end. I am so thankful god has granted these women the serenity to accept that they WILL NOT change and will forever remain the lovable, dysfunctional, bizarro world kooks we have come to adore.
For all the drama and insults they inflict upon each Real Housewives Of New York is unlike any other franchise in their ability to brush it off, chalk it up to experience, and come back together as more than friends, but family. After so many years knowing each other on and off Bravo, this show is also unique in that most of the relationships predate the show, and will outlast it too.
Unequivocably the major subject of this reunion (and so many others) has been Luann de Lesseps. No wonder Luann has such a huge ego! It’s impossible for me to comprehend that there was a time when Lu was a ‘Friend of…’ and I’m very curious to see how that will play out with Vicki Gunvalson on Real Housewives Of Orange County (which starts next week. WOOT!)
