How Bravo’s First-Ever BravoCon Is Bringing Diversity And Inclusion To The Network’s Programming
On November 15th, Bravo launched, BravoCon—the first-ever convention and three-day celebration of the network’s reality programming and the “bravolebrities” who are behind the widely popular shows. BravoCon is everything fans love about Bravo TV in one space, complete with Bravolebrity photo ops, Instagram-worthy photo moments, live panels and shows like never before. The first-ever immersive experience of its kind designed specifically for the Bravosphere — where superfans and Bravo influencers can come together to celebrate their fandom while sipping the hottest Bravolebrity tea and contributing to the conversation of the network.
The inaugural conference brought together stars, producers, and executives from The Real Housewives of New York City, Beverly Hills, Atlanta, and New Jersey, along with cast members from Southern Charm, Vanderpump Rules, Married to Medicine, Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, Top Chef, Project Runway and Below Deck, proving to be an unforgetable experience of its kind designed specifically for Bravo superfans. To kick off the weekend festivities at the convention, BravoCon hosted the largest Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen show yet, live from the Hammerstein Ballroom. BravoCon’s WWHL amassed 70 bravolebrities and provided series announcements and updates giving viewers a sneak peek of what’s to come.
Ahead of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, we spoke with several extremely well-known and charismatic bravolebrities from the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise, Eva Marcille and Kenya Moore about their excitement for BravoCon, their thoughts on Bravo’s commitment to diverse programming and how the network has provided them a platform for their communities.
