Bravo shows are like Bedazzled cotton candy: No substance, so so so much style and totally addictive. (And yes, OK, fine, the Top Chef franchise has some substance.)
The network just threw its advertisers a party and gave us fans a gift bag of treats. In addition to a slew of new series annoucements, the network has ordered new seasons of Bethenny Ever After (yay!), Tabatha's Salon Takeover, Top Chef Just Desserts (yay!), The Real Housewives of Atlanta and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (quintuple yay!).
Plus, which Project Runway and Rachel Zoe Project personalities just got spinoffs?
Project Runway drag-queen-dress designer Chris March is getting his own show, called Mad Fashion, and it's about time. Such a good idea to give this guy his own show; he is ridiculously funny and exactly the kind of guy you want to spend an hour with while you're decompressing from a long day at work. The other star getting his own spotlight on Bravo is Rachel Zoe's former assistant Brad Goreski, soon to be the lead of It's a Brad Brad World. Mmm…do you love or hate this guy? Will he be a good reality show star?
Meanwhile, the network ordered a bunch of new series and franchise extensions. Namely: The salon takeover franchise starring Tabatha Coffey expands to include other small businesses in Tabatha Takes Over; Roble and Co. is a new catering-centric reality series, starring Chef Roble Ali of New York City; Ready to Wear is about a high-end consignment shop in NYC; Project Soulmate is Millionaire Matchmaker in Manhattan, with Lori Zaslow as the leading yenta; Million Dollar Listing NY is a franchise extension to the Big Apple; Miss Advised (awful title!) is about three single relationship experts having to sometimes take their own medicine; The Therapists is about shrinks having to sometimes have to take their own medicine; and Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis is about remodeling your house and your state of mind simultaneously;
Bravo is also introducing Most Eligible: Dallas, which is about socialites (of both genders) dating in the big city. So, will this be the pioneer edition of a younger version of Housewives franchise, or is it just another dating show?
