Seasoned reality TV viewers are well-aware that STD tests are common on shows where the contestants are sequestered, especially for dating shows, but Bravo is taking the STD precautions a step further- allegedly.
Supposedly, Bravo has an “STD clause” that prevents the shows’ stars from suing the network if they contract an STD while filming.
Some question whether this surprising move was “just for the cameras,” but Jill has made it clear that she wanted Bravo to film at Bobby’s memorial, both to highlight her connection to former RHONY cast mates and because Bobby became known to many of us through his multiple seasons on the show. Jill said, “This was all about memorializing Bobby — [there was] no drama. It’s very sad for all. He was an important part of the show and a great friend to many who appeared on it.”
I don’t understand why anyone would try to make an enemy out of Bethenny Frankel, but it does happen and the latest person to have Bethenny’s name stuck in her mouth is none other than Jill Zarin advocate Patti Stanger.
Ever since Patti “left” Bravo, she’s had a lot to say about Bethenny her new show.
John Bonavia appeared on MM in March 2014 and was described as a financial advisor worth more than $1 million. The former model was stuck in the party boy mentality and running in a wealthy Hollywood circle. As he turned 30, John was ready to settle down and Patti hope to find him a woman who would encourage him to grow up. Guess that didn’t turn out to well!
No more Millionaire Matchmaker, y’all! Patti Stanger announced this afternoon that after eight years of match making, she’s parting ways with Bravo TV. If you’re a Patti fan, she won’t be gone for long. She’s moving to a new network!
