Caroline Manzo & Lisa Vanderpump Avoided Housewives At BravoCon
There’s some drama even BravoCon couldn’t solve.
Over the weekend at BravoCon, Andy Cohen hosted a WWHL special with 77 Bravolebrities from across the network, which sets the record as the most Bravo personalities ever on a TV show. These Bravo events just keep getting bigger: first Andy’s baby shower, then the World Pride float and now their own convention.
During the special, cast members from almost every show on Bravo came out and were interviewed by Andy, before joining the rest of the casts in the background, however, Lisa Vanderpump and Caroline Manzo left the stage after their segments to avoid running into Housewives they have bad blood with.
Caroline came out first with the other former OG Housewives, while LVP walked out in the third group with the Vanderpump Rules cast and both left before the New Jersey & Beverly Hills Housewives came out onto the stage later on. All the other Bravolebrities stayed on the stage the entire time, however, it’s no secret why they avoided running into their ex-friends.
Mama Manzo has been in the media lately after Teresa Giudice accused her of “ratting” to the feds, which the former reality star obviously denied. During the Former Housewives panel at BravoCon, Caroline said she thought Teresa was on Xanax during her WWHL interview with Joe Giudice but said if she ran into her, she’d say hello.
Given the fact that Caroline said she could be cordial with her arch-enemy, I don’t see her running away from Teresa, so maybe the producers just ushered her off the stage to avoid any drama? Maybe? I’m not sure, but we’re gonna need someone to set the record straight.
Even though Caroline was off the stage, it didn’t stop Andy from asking the New Jersey cast if they would welcome her back onto the show. Of course, Teresa said no, while Dolores Catania (Caroline’s friend of 30 years) said she definitely would. Melissa Gorga didn’t really give us an answer (like usual) but she said there’d be a lot more table flips happening if Caroline was to rejoin the group.
Vanderpump, on the other hand, has been avoiding her former costars since she stopped filming halfway through season nine and skipped the reunion due to PuppyGate. It’s no surprise she ran off the stage before the Beverly Hills cast came on, because she's been running from them for over a year now.
During BravoCon, Kyle Richards was asked about her ongoing beef with Vanderpump and she too said, if she saw her in the street she’d say hi. Since LVP and Kyle’s epic fight at Villa Rosa, Kyle admitted she’s seen her twice at Neiman Marcus (duh) and once at a restaurant in Beverly Hills, and each time they both just gave each other a cordial “hi”.
Whether Caroline and Lisa left on their own accord or were ushered off by producers, I wish they’d stayed because imagine the tension between all those women together. More than a table would have been flipped...
