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…
Sutton Stracke was a polarizing figure last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She was only a Friend of the Housewives for Season 10, but she still managed to stir up plenty of drama. Sutton is wealthy and informed everyone that she only wears couture. Sutton was appalled that Kyle Richards didn’t have place cards at her dinner party. During a game of first impressions, Sutton told pregnant RHOBH co-star Teddi Mellencamp that she thought she would be “boring.”
Sutton’s antics even caused Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jackie Goldschneider to call her “a little too uppity.” Sutton insisted that she was “not a mean girl.” She also said, “Can I be a little snobby? Yes. But is that my whole personality? No.”
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.
Austen Kroll was extremely vocal on the recent Southern Charm reunion. Mainly, it was a battle of wits between himself and ex-girlfriend Madison LeCroy. Craig Conover was after Madison in a big way, after she supposedly went after his girlfriend Natalie. But Austen’s outbursts seemed to dominate the stage, and while his target was Madison, Austen had opinions about all the cast conflicts.
One feud of interest this season was between Kathryn Dennis and long-time friend Danni Baird. After expressing hurt for Kathryn’s silence during her “monkey emoji” situation, Danni found herself looking for an apology for the latter part of the season. Kathryn was not sympathetic to her friend’s feelings initially, but apparently the two made up after filming wrapped.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast went into the finale party questioning each other’s trustworthiness. It was a heavy miasma that could have caused a huge scene at the grand opening of Heather Gay’s new spa, especially if Jen Shah had reacted the way she usually does when confronted.
All of this tension stemmed from a trust game conducted by a hypnotist in a random Las Vegas living room. Heather was floored when Jen revealed that she did not trust her. Meanwhile, Jen had her own revelation about how her friends viewed her. Add to this is the hurt Meredith Marks felt when she found out Jen was gossiping about her marriage. Finally, Whitney Rose was gauging whether she and Lisa Barlow truly had a breakthrough in their friendship.
Pretty much everyone is familiar with Wendy Williams. Even if you don’t watch her show, her antics have been splashed across the media. She had a messy divorce. She passed out on live television. And she’s big on spreading gossip. In theory, her background sounds like a Housewife resume. All she really needs is an enormous fraud case to seal the deal.
Since Wendy already has the qualifications and she is currently on Andy Cohen’s good side, has the time come for her to test her chops on a show? Real Housewives of Miami is looking like it will get another shot and producers are allegedly narrowing down cast for the 305. We may get Marysol Patton back. Perhaps Adriana de Moura. Now we’re hearing we may get Wendy too. Someone needs to go check on NeNe Leakes because she’s about to have a real bad day.
Whitney Rose went on her Las Vegas trip knowing that she had conflict with most of the other Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast mates. Jen Shah gave the impression that she forgave Whitney for bringing drama to her husband’s birthday party. But of course, Jen was still simmering underneath, and she took her anger out on Heather Gay of all people.
Meredith Marks and Lisa Barlow hadn’t yet shared their grievances with Whitney. They were last face to face at Sharrieff Shah’s birthday where Whitney accused them of talking negatively behind Jen’s back. There was no chance of resolution before the Vegas trip. Lisa got her own ride out of town to avoid Whitney, and the tension was palpable.
Rachel Hargrove knows that she can cook. She also knows that the Below Deck crew of My Seanna need her more than she needs them, especially given the unraveling of the coronavirus at the time of filming. One could guess that she would have been welcomed back onto the boat, given that no alternative chef was available.
Of course, Rachel had to get the ok from Captain Lee Rosbach first. To Captain Lee, expendable crew are just that, and he’s not one to indulge people with their emotional issues. But desperate times, and Rachel’s undeniable talent as a chef forced Captain Lee to bring her back. The question is, would he choose to work with her again?
