Is BravoCon Worth It? Let's Revisit The Wildest Moments

Money can’t buy you class, but it can get you BravoCon tickets.

No one does reality TV quite like Bravo, Bravo, f*cking Bravo. Last weekend, over 30,000 fans flocked to NYC for BravoCon, a three-day meet-and-greet extravaganza starring Bravolebrities from the network. It's impossible to attend all 60+ events IRL, so here were the highlights.


First, The Basics

BravoCon isn’t cheap. Tickets began at $170 for a one-day GA pass, with VIP access starting at $350. A three-day GA ticket cost $430, and a fast-lane, three-day SVIP pass went for $1,950 (ouch!). Add-ons like a live taping of WWHL were sold separately.

Lisa Rinna Getting Booed

BravoCon included moderated panels, photo-ops, and parties. At a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills panel hosted by Brad Goreski, fans were quick to boo Lisa Rinna (and Erika Jayne) after her introduction. Her response? She flipped the bird.

Chrissy Teigen Fangirling

It’s fun to watch the mega-famous geek out over each other. Teigan sat front-row and gawked at her faves every day of BravoCon. (I sat four seats away from her one day. She’s fab!) At one point, she wore a sky dress inspired by the RHOC's signature look.

The New RHONY Cast

Bravo’s crown jewel remains The Real Housewives franchise, so fans gasped when Jenna Lyons, Jessel Taank, Ubah Hassan, Lizzy Savetsky, Sai De Silva, and Erin Dana Lichy were introduced as the new batch of affluent women to follow in the NYC series.

Ashley Darby & Luke Gulbranson’s Situationship

Amid her separation from husband Michael Darby, RHOP’s Ashley Darby owned up to flirting with Summer House bad boy Luke Gulbranson at a party Saturday night. They’ve exchanged numbers, so can we expect a crossover?

The RHONJ Cast Hating Each Other

As Andy Cohen confirmed, things have gotten so bad between Teresa Giudice and Joe and Melissa Gorga, the RHONJ cast was split into two panels rather than one, which, yikes. Jennifer Aydin was later captured throwing a drink at Joe Saturday.

Teresa Guidice & Caroline Manzo’s Feud

During a game of “Squash! That Beef!” at Sunday’s WWHL, the Jersey women decided to keep the flames of their years-long feud lit. When asked if she was interested in speaking to Caroline, Teresa said, “There’s not enough security here.”

Jill Zarin’s Dog

Two words: Hello, Bossi.

Whitney Rose & Heather Gay’s Explosive Fight

The weather was (figuratively) icy cold during Saturday’s RHOSLC panel, in which real-life second cousins Whitney and Heather’s drama came to a head. Whitney previously hinted their rift stems from a physical altercation.

Watch What Happens Live: Andy’s Mystery Door

This was the most fun I had! From Cynthia Bailey to Jill Zarin and Marlo Hampton to Alexia Echevarria, nearly 30 Bravolebrities arrived as surprise guests of Andy's. The episode will air Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo.

Andy Cohen’s Legends Ball

No one was tardy for this party, where hundreds of fan favorites across all Bravo series gathered onstage. The highlight was a live medley performance by RHOA’s Kenya Moore, Vanderpump Rules’ Scheana Shay, and RHOP’s Candiace Dillard-Bassett.

Feverish Fan Enthusiasm

BravoCon is chaotic. A woman I spoke with waited nearly two hours for the RHOA panel, and crowds went berserk at the sight of celebs. Was it worth it? I heard an out-of-towner sum it up best Sunday night, “I literally have nothing to look forward to.”

If you missed the BravoCon action IRL, fear not: Visit for additional interviews and shortened clips from the aforementioned panels. The remaining BravoCon-themed WWHL episodes will air at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo through Thursday, Oct. 20. Until next year!
