When BravoCon was announced several months ago, fans immediately began clamoring for details. Would they get to attend a taping of Watch What Happens Live? (they did). Would they get to meet all of their favorite Housewives up close and personal? (they met former and current cast members). Would they get some inside dish on future seasons of their favorite shows and some trailers (they got several).
The dish at the three day event was so massive that it’s going to be broken up into two separate pieces; today’s piece is heavy on the Housewife dish! Stay tuned tomorrow for some interesting interactions between the Housewives as well as a long awaited trailer….
There was a huge amount of scoop and inside dish from almost every city (as well as the brand new series, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City being announced during BravoCon) so here’s a breakdown based on city of the scoop we got direct from the ladies….
The Real Housewives of New York City
There is no where better to start than with the hometown favorites. From the introduction of new Housewife Leah McSweeney to dish on the upcoming season (the first since Bethenny Frankel has again departed the season) the ladies had plenty to share. From Dorinda and LuAnn (in a good place) to the return to the “Bezerkshires”, the new season seems to be a game changer. Dorinda Medley shared that we will see quite a bit of original Housewife Jill Zarin this season, and Tinsley Mortimer got quite a reaction from the crowd when she revealed that she is back with boyfriend Scott Kluth.
This dish that Twitter user @LoveAndyC allegedly got from a RHONY producer was especially steaming
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey
The same cast from last year returned, with the news that Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub are no longer friends. Teresa also spoke at length about her husband Joe Giudice, who’s possible deportation will play out on the show this season.
The Real Housewives of Potomac/The Real Housewives of Dallas
The newest (and some will say, some of the most polarizing) cities in the Housewives orbit entered together, with Housewives from each city representing their cities. #RHOP stars Gizelle and Ashley both said that the much publicized fight between Candiace and Monique was as bad as it is being reported. Gizelle said Candiace is a hot mess, but good for the show. Ashley said Candiace needs to leave the show (dish courtesy of @MarioKiki)
The Real Housewives of Orange County
The ladies talked about everything from Kelly Dodd’s recent egagement to the recent reunion (which Vicki Gunvalson indicated was “shocking”). During the weekend, Vicki stated emphatically that she would “never come back in a reduced capacity” and would happily replace “Brown Wind” (new cast member Braunwyn Windham-Burke) next season. Kelly Dodd also created buzz when she stated that co-star Gina Kirschenheiter is only friends with the “Tres Amigas” (Gunvalson, Shannon Beador, and Tamra Judge) to secure her spot on the show for next season.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
After a season filled with #Puppygate and the departure of original Housewife and fan favorite Lisa Vanderpump mid-way through, the next season is already very anticipated. Two housewives have been added (Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais) and the women have already indicated that there is definitely “drama this season and they love the additions of Garcelle and Sutton. With guest appearances from former Housewives Brandi Glanville and Camille Grammer, the next season is sure to be filled with the airing of both current and former grievances from a virtual all-star Housewives cast.
Coming up tomorrow; The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Vanderpump Rules, and some surprising interactions between Housewives throughout the weekend….
