It’s Episode 2 of Summer House, and if you thought six weeks in quarantine would put our beloved Good Vibe Tribe into the proverbial pressure cooker, you were right. Because drama is already starting to boil. We’ve got a love triangle in full swing. A couple bickering over traditional gender roles. Gossip flying through the house at warp speed. And maybe even one or two happily ever afters in the making. Because apparently it’s possible to find — and maintain — love, even in a global pandemic. Who knew?
Two things I noticed from a production standpoint this week. First, it seems we’re in for a lot of Zoom calls and FaceTime this season. Which is apropos considering the isolation we’re all living through these days. But still, it felt noticeable. The other change, and maybe this is just me, is that production seems to be relying more on mounted cameras throughout the house than usual. It could just be an editing choice, because it wasn’t something I noticed last week during the premiere. But it’s also possible that, because of the pandemic, production has fewer camera crews in the house than in seasons past.
Simply put, 2020 has sucked. I don’t think anyone can really dispute that. But from the chaos of everything going on, something good has come out of it all. The discussion surrounding race in America.
This year’s reckoning of Bravo stars was just one step forward. Forcing the Vanderpump Rules cast to take responsibility for racist behavior was shocking to many, but absolutely necessary. Seeing some of our favorites, like Porsha Williams and Braunwyn Windham-Burke, calling for justice was inspiring.
We are excited to announce a collaboration with S’More, which recently started a weekly show called S’More Live Happy Hour, which includes interviews with celebs and reality stars dishing on dating stories, playing hilarious games, and spilling some tea.
We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the April 16 edition of Thursday Morning Tea.
There are a lot of categories at the Emmy Awards, which is why they have a separate show solely for the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Even with the first day of the awards, there were still a lot of awards to sit through during the main show.
No need to watch the whole broadcast if you recorded it. If you missed the Emmy Awards, don’t worry, we got you. We have compiled a list of winners from the categories you care about: the reality TV awards, of course. It was a major night for RuPaul’s Drag Race and Queer Eye.
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.
We certainly love our Bravo. And the fandom following each and every show is passionate and loyal.
Well, the opportunity of the life time is coming. Move over, Comicon. BravoCon is about to sweep the nation. And our fans are even more intense!
So much reality TV, so little time. We are thankful for DVR since there are a lot of time conflicts with some reality TV great shows. Check out our reality TV listings of shows to watch this week!
