Ever since Andy Cohen announced a special episode of Watch What Happens Live featuring the kids of Housewives, there’s been drama. The show will feature Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, Noelle Robinson and Kairo Whitfield from the Real Housewives of Atlanta; Frankie Catania, Gia Giudice and Albie & Chris Manzo from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Also, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Briana Culberson and Shane Keough and Real Housewives of New York’s Victoria de Lesseps and Avery Singer will be thrown in the mix. And last but not least, newbie Brooks Marks from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City will be there too. So there’s definitely a variety of old and new, with plenty of OGs making a return.
But apparently, some of the wives were not happy that their kids were left off the list and made a call to Daddy Andy to complain. Andy said it was someone with daughters, which removes NeNe Leakes from the suspect list (even though she would’ve been a good contender). It was a bit of a red flag that no Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kids were featured, but Lisa Rinna totally owned it and admitted it wasn’t her calling the network. We know that her daughters Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle Hamlin are busy working on becoming the next Kardashians anyway.
I love a good mystery and when all else fails, this one will do. Recently Andy Cohen announced a Watch What Happens Live special featuring the children of Bravolebrities. “Children” meaning 18 years old and over… No minors will be a part of this program, but that doesn’t stop parents from subjecting their youngsters to scorn and humiliation over the course of 13 episodes. The line up includes various spawn representing most of the Real Housewives franchises.
Not every adult kid could participate. Some are in college, some have families in far away places, and some weren’t asked to join in on the fun. Rumors began swirling that two pissed off Housewives called Daddy with a bone to pick because their child wasn’t tapped. The Bravo detective squad, arguably more lethal than the CIA, began sleuthing in attempts to figure out which indignant women complained. According to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Rinna, we can eliminate her from the list. But we all know Lisa has memory problems, so she might not even remember making the call…
This week Andy Cohen gifted fans with news of a “Bravo Kids” special that will be featured on an episode of Watch What Happens Live. The special includes Gia Giudice, Frankie Catania, Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo from Real Housewives of New Jersey, Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, and Kairo Whitfield (THANK YOU) from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Avery Singer and Victoria de Lesseps from Real Housewives of New York City, and of course OG kids Briana Culberson and Shane Keough (YES) from Real Housewives of Orange County.
The “kids” featured in this special all grew up on TV and probably had zero say in showing their awkward years on camera for millions of people. So, this could be awesome! While the show features our favorite Bravo kids, there are some noticeable names missing. Yolanda Hadid’s daughters, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are probably too busy being supermodels to show up on WWHL. But what about Kyle Richards’ daughters? Or Lisa Rinna’s? Nene Leakes’ kids? Or Jill Zarin’s daughter? Something tells me they’re dying to be included – and Andy has hinted as much without naming names.
You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?
While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.
It seems like Luann de Lesseps life is on the upswing. Her life is cabaret-based, as Real House of New York viewers
cannot escape know. Luann has been “on display” (shout out to RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga) and has been enjoying soaking up the limelight.
This cabaret queen has had a tough couple of years. Luann completed her probation following her arrest on Dec. 24, 2017 in Palm Beach. The RHONY star was charged with several counts, including disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence.
Life may be a cabaret for Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps, but that may be leading her down the wrong path. Back in December of 2017, Luann was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida on charges of disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, crimes against a person, and battery on an officer. Luann was found in someone else’s hotel room and refused to leave. This was her first time back in Palm Beach since her marriage to husband Tom D’Agostino. The duo called it quits after seven months, and tons of cheating allegations.
Then, Luann was sued by her two children and her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for violating a divorce agreement. The family’s home in Bridgehampton was sold for $8 million dollars. Luann purchased a house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million dollars. Luann was supposed to take half of the money from the Bridgehampton sale and create a trust for her children, Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps. Unfortunately, she never did.
It has been a hard knock life for Luann de Lesseps lately. No one will ever forget the Real Housewives of New York star’s arrest Christmas Eve 2017 in Palm Beach. A wild evening that resulted in charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person. A one-woman game of thrones!
Luann also had legal troubles closer to home. Call it Game of Homes! Luann was being sued by her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for allegedly violating a divorce agreement and stealing from their children Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps. The suit arose from a sale of the family’s home in Bridgehampton for $8 million dollars and the star’s purchase of a smaller house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million. As per the divorce decree, Luann was to set up a trust for the children funded from half of the Bridgehampton sale. Apparently, she never did.
When it comes to Real Housewives comebacks, Luann de Lesseps is up there with the best of them. After a short marriage, drunken arrest, rehab stint, a lawsuit from her ex-husband Alex de Lesseps and children Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps, and second rehab stint, Luann is back on stage for her cabaret show Countess and Friends.
Not only that, but now Luann is joking about her recent hard times- the rehab stint and the lawsuit from her own family members- in her cabaret act.
