Uh-oh, it looks like BravoCon won’t be so Bravolicious as fans hoped!
AllAboutTRH has EXCLUSIVELY learned some shocking info about Bravo’s first reality TV convention, which is said to feature 70+ Bravolebs. For months Bravo has hyped up BravoCon as a “3-day event designed for the Bravosphere, where superfans and Bravo influencers can come together to celebrate their fandom.”
According to the BravoCon website, the 3-day event will feature the likes of OG Housewives, Former Housewives, Men of Bravo, and the casts of various Bravo shows, including Vanderpump Rules, Below Deck, and Southern Charm.
However, AllAboutTRH has learned that some fan-favorite Housewives may NOT be attending BravoCon after all. And it turns out it all comes down to the dollars and cents.
“A lot of the fan favorites aren’t going to Bravo Con because they aren’t getting paid,” a source reveals.
A second source, on the other hand, tells AllAboutTRH that Bravolebs may be getting paid but if they are it’s “very little.” Adding that the amount isn’t very enticing for bigger Bravo stars. As many fans know the Housewives love to do appearances because they make a lot of money doing it.
However, our initial source does confirm that Bravo is footing the bill for “airfare and travel.”
But because Bravo isn’t shilling out the big bucks, some Housewives are skipping out on BravoCon altogether. And we’re told Bravo is “scrambling” to find replacements.
“The event is going to be a mess, and Bravo is scrambling by adding some castmembers last minute from shows like Southern Charm and Below Deck,” the source confesses.
In an Instagram post last week, Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan revealed that she would not be attending BravoCon and instead would be spending November 15 thru 17th in Miami at the Carillon Resort for a “beauty & life longevity weekend.”

Meanwhile, our source tells us that Sonja isn’t the only NY Housewife who’s skipping out.
“Sonja already confirmed she’s not going based on her plans, but Ramona [Singer] isn’t going either,” the source revealed.
Adding, “Dorinda [Medley] and Tinsley [Mortimer] originally signed on but apparently they might end up not going.”
The source also tells us that RHOA stars “Nene [Leakes] and Kandi [Burruss] aren’t going as well.”
Yikes! It seems like fans might be quite disappointed by BravoCon especially considering how expensive the tickets were!
Our source wrapped by saying that Bravo may “end up adding more Bravolebs and Housewives at the last minute as a ‘surprise,’ but in actuality, the favorites don’t want to do it, and they are scrambling.”
