Tonight Andy has 99 problems and they are all bitches, it’s called the Bravo upfronts! It seems like just yesterday that Sheree Whitfield got fired just before the Bravo Upfronts. But in reality that was a full year ago. Last year at this time, the upfronts party was televised on WWHL. That was a straight up disaster! But live party or no, the upfronts are usually very informative. We can tell who is coming back for another season by who shows up. Here is the tea…
UPDATE: Kim Richards and Heather Dubrow were both reportedly absent from upfronts. No idea if they had a note. Did Heather have a prior commitment or did she quit mid-season a la Kim Zolciak? (Update again, Heather says she has spring break with the kids already planned. Didn’t Kim Z already use that excuse once?) Has Kim Richards finally had enough? Or is this yet another accommodation?
So let’s start with the bad news. Kenya Moore was on the same flight as Nene to NYC. This means that everyone from RHOA is in NYC, expect Phaedra. Phaedra has been having a bit of a rough pregnancy and I think she may be on bedrest for the duration of her term. The rumor mill is that it is nothing that major, but Phaedra just needs to take it easy. Kim is there promoting her show and RHOA. Now there is the possibility that Kenya is not invited to upfronts and is only in town for a party she is hosting in NYC tomorrow night. We can only hope. But there is a strong possibility she is in for next season. The good news is Porsha is there and definitely at upfronts. YAY.
As for RHOBH, the big news is Taylor is there. Yolanda has been in NYC with her daughter interviewing at colleges. Her health has not improved despite her treatment in Florida ending. It’s unclear if she is well enough to go to the event, or if she was invited to attend at all. Did I mention Taylor is there? Shockingly, Lisa is there and Gleb went with her so they can rehearse in NYC while she promotes Vanderpump Rules and RHOBH. And Taylor is there.
Not sure who is there from RHOM but everyone is coming back except KarnenT. Somehow RHOM is always the ugly stepchild that doesn’t always get invited to the ball.
RHNOJ has both Tre and Melissa there. We already know everyone is back filming. Caroline is on a book tour. Dunno who will show up but I hope they can all share a table without flipping it.
And then there is RHONY. Ramona is the only one tweeting about going. The rest are surprisingly quiet. Sonja has not tweeted all day. She may be passed out somewhere. Luann is tweeting about other things with no mention AT ALL of upfronts. In fact none has mentioned upfronts except Ramona. That is interesting. I will keep and eye on the RHONY gang and see what is up. I read a tweet from Carole yesterday that made me think filming had started with her. We shall see. Naughty but Nice Rob is reporting that Carole, Heather and Ramona are the only ones asked back so far. That supports my theory that Carole filmed a scene yesterday but can’t mention it yet. Luann, Sonja and Aviva have reportedly not been offered a contract or officially let go yet. Sonja will be devasted. The scene that Carole filmed this week with Heather and Ramona was the Summer by Bravo commerical.
So that’s the late night tea for y’all. Thoughts?
