In a press release, Bravo has announced the renewal of 14 of their current shows, plus teased us with the names of six new projects in the works. The crown in their jewel, Real Housewives, received five renewals with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the one that started it all The Real Housewives of Orange County, newbie to the group The Real Housewives of Potomac, and The Real Housewives of New Jersey. No word on the newest Texas based show franchise, The Real Housewives of Dallas or the often contentious group of ladies from The Real Housewives of New York.

Also receiving the green light to continue were Top Chef, Vanderpump Rules, Manzo’d with Children, Flipping Out, Don’t Be Tardy, Married to Medicine Atlanta, Below Deck, Ladies of London and Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles.

“With great personalities, genre defining franchises and top-notch storytelling, we are able to super-serve our viewers with original content across all platforms and continue to thrive in an increasingly competitive landscape,” Bravo program strategy executive vice president Jerry Leo said.

The new shows Bravo announced in the press release are called Relative Success with Tabatha Coffey; Yours, Mine or Ours with Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan; Summer House; Oklahoma City and The Lodge.

In addition, more Then & Now with Andy Cohen are in the works. The show will have Andy examine “the biggest news stories, pop culture moments and hottest trends” in different defining eras of our time.

“So excited that Bravo picked up #ThenAndNow !! Can’t wait to make more @WorldOfWonder,” Cohen tweeted following the news.

    Andy will never cancel RHNY – it would be his two besties, Bethenny and Carole, out of work.

    • That’s why friendship and business don’t mesh. It’s clouding Andy’s judgement.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Oh….so there isn’t a medical reason. Whew!
        : )

        • Well…..I didn’t mention there wasn’t. The jury is still out on that one.

          • MidwestMiddie

            ROFL

  • TopGear

    Who watched Vanderpump Rules. How does that show get keep getting renewed and RHOMiami got cancelled.

    • BriannaG

      really…I can’t stand VPR. Pure promotion of alcoholism and ugly behavior. I liked Miami, I don’t know why but I really liked Lea Black on the show. I’d take Miami over Dallas, OC and NJ.

      • VPR is gross! I watched a few episodes season one and tuned out ever since.

        • Pandora403

          Me too! I never watched it again after the first season. As for Miami, I can’t believe they couldn’t find some show for Lea Black. If the Manzos can have a show and Kim Z. can have one why not the fabulous Ms. Black?

          • Omg, I love Lea Black. She’s the best of the Miami bunch. Such class and real money. Andy should have given her a spin off but I gather Andy didn’t like Lea. She was too much like LVP for his taste.

          • Pandora403

            Good point! I hadn’t thought of that but I have a feeling you’re 100% correct.

          • BriannaG

            Absolutely! And she is funny and entertaining. I’d watch her spin-off.

      • Birdie

        I agree–I can’t take VPR–30 year olds acting like oversexed frat drunks is not my cup of tea. I liked Miami too–the location, and even most of the cast, was great. Dallas is TERRIBLE, I couldn’t take more than 2 episodes.

      • Pandora403

        I, too wish Lea Black was still on Bravo. I think she could have easily carried a half hour show of her own.

        • TeaLuvR

          Wouldn’t it be great if Lea somehow found her way to RHOBH to put some bitches in check..hehe

    • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

      One of the worst! It’s tragic that an otherwise fabulous LVP would associate herself with such trash. I can’t even.

    • Jennymckitty

      It is horrible and I love it. Much in the way I love Sharknado. It is brilliant in its horribleness. The adult-age adolescents have few redeeming qualities and I can feel morally and intellectually superior for one hour every week.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Do they deliberately not mention the ones airing now? No MDLNY or RHONY? I’m not a big Bravo watcher so I don’t know what else is airing now.

    • Hey WCF. Nice to see you. You’re right about that. Bravo doesn’t renew a show until it’s current season completes airing. I would imagine the network waits on the ratings before determining the future of the show. Hope you’ve been well. How is your daughter doing?

      • WestCoastFeed

        ????

    • TeaLuvR

      So then RHOD would be included in that group as well?

  • BriannaG

    Hm, I said before today that no more OC,ATL, NJ, Dallas and BH for me…Still hanging out on Potomac and NYC, but Bethany and Carole are getting on my very last nerve.
    I am glad to see Ladies of London renewed, and I probably will give a try to new Tabatha show. I like her.

  • Sky

    Flipping Out and Tabatha… yay! Can’t wait.

    • I think “Tabatha” is a done dolla. No more.

      • Pandora403

        Tabatha is returning with a new show. This time I think she’s going to help families in trouble rather than businesses. Another site has a brief description of the new shows.

        • Oh ok. I did not know that. Thanks Pandy!

          • Pandora403

            My pleasure. Anytime.

  • TartLemon

    What happened to RH of Melbourne? 🙁

    • That’s under Aeros, Bravo’s sister company.

    • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

      I miss my Melbourne Sheilas!

  • Chickpea16

    No mention of Shahs of Sunset? Hope it’s over. Can’t believe that awlful Reza got a new show.

    • Hi Chickpea. No mention of Shahs because it’s currently airing.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Happy Ladies of London will be back and Married to Medicine.

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    I am now convinced the Manzo have pictures, dirt or something on Andy Cohen or other bravo execs. Either that, or they act all GoodFella and threaten him with violence and extortion.

    I am shocked that steaming pile of garbage show would be renewed.

    • LMAO! Everyone says that.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Have you watched it? It was a really cute season last year. Very entertaining.

    • Hamimono

      Mangling the Fat, Annoying, Loser, Immature, Dependant Adult Children is appalling crap that gives oxygen to the most boring, passive-aggressive group of morons that one could meet . . . anyone who watches this show must be a braindead idiot . . . 🙁

    • foxy FatZombieCatLady 😽 MEOW

      I still believe it has to do with Punta Cana.
      They’ll be marrying off the breast fed boys next. Anything to keep these kids on tv until they retire.
      Reminds me of Paula Deen’s fat and pathetic sons.

  • italiano bambino

    Oh yay tabatha is back

  • Darris

    Only surprise is Ladies of London…crap ratings and it got renewed so I’m pretty sure if RHODallas can stay steady it will as well.

  • EllaFitzbunbun

    Jerry Leo, may I please have your ear for a moment or two? With regard to the Housewives shows, why have you chosen to ignore the feedback your loyal viewers have provided throughout the seasons? You must be aware that your viewership numbers are ever dwindling, yet you’ve failed repeatedly to heed the warnings and advice, not to mention, the pleas from those of us who should matter most to you: WE THE VIEWERS!

    Considering the extent of the negative feedback Bravo has received from WE THE VIEWERS, WHO ARE ENTICED TO GO OUT AND BUY THE PRODUCTS YOUR ADVERTISERS ARE SELLING, one would think that by now the decision makers at Bravo might have deigned to acknowledge the general consensus of opinion of those of us who have supported your programming from the beginning. Bravo is losing viewers by the day and here we are explaining the reasons for that, yet for some unimaginable reason you continue to ignore our pleas.

    When you claim to be providing “top-notch storytelling”, surely you’re not suggesting that the pack of lies that Yolanda Foster Hadid has attempted to foist on us with regard to her alleged Chronic Lyme Disease, a nonexistent disease, is “top-notch storytelling”? When you speak of “great personalities”, surely you’re not suggesting that Bethenny and Carole, or Yolanda, Lisa Rinna, Eileen and Erika, or Vicky and Tamra are considered “great personalities by the majority of your viewers. In the eyes of most viewers, each and every one of the women mentioned is nothing more than a gutter snipe.

    From whence comes this excitement you felt when Bravo picked up Andy Cohen’s “Then and Now”? WWHL, as an adjunct to Real Housewives, may have initially achieved some degree of success, but most of the viewers were able to see through Andy’s flimsy veneer early on. The entire premise of the show is as ridiculous as its host and, if you think anyone is entertained by that show, you’re sadly mistaken. Yet, as unbelievable as it is, Bravo has given him another show. How is it possible that Andy Cohen holds such sway with Bravo, and apparently you as well, when the majority of viewers abhor everything about him?

    You can’t be serious when you claim to “SUPER SERVE YOUR VIEWERS”. YOU’RE NOT GIVING US EVEN THE MOST BASIC SERVICE SINCE YOU DISREGARD EVERYTHING WE SAY.

    If you and Andy are representative of Bravo, the future of Bravo looks to be quite grim.

    • Bryan

      Well said!

  • Buddy Buddy

    I was hoping for no more RHONJ. And if Reza acts the way he does in his commercials, then no thanks. And Manzo’d with Children? Time for some new life please, Bravo. And no more NeNe, Kenya or Porsha either. Oh yeah…Vanderpump Rules? Really? Renew The People’s Couch please. If you insist on airing Married to Medicine, please leave out that wife who speaks in first person all the time, yeeessss honey. OMG. I. CAN’T.
