This isn't semi-gross. Or kind of yucky. It's full-on repulsive!
Bravo has just announced "The Real Housewives Live Tour." The "Housewives" from various cities (including Lisa Vanderpump from Beverly Hills, above) will gather together on one stage to talk about their big fights, their big secrets, their big lips, and their little brains. They will also answer audience questions. The short tour begins in Atlantic City on Oct. 1, and then it will stop in Chicago on Oct. 8 Atlanta on Oct. 15. If it's successful, of course, perhaps they'll be a Boston date before long...
No -- this isn't an Onion parody. "Bravo viewers like to truly engage in the shows they are passionate about," Ellen Stone, Bravo's VP of Marketing, said in a statement. "With 'The Real Housewives Live Tour,' we are able to give our fans a unique, hands-on experience with their favorite cast members across franchises that they can't experience anywhere else." The tour will offer a Red Carpet Package, which will buy you acess to a pre-show cocktail reception with the ladies.
So get ready to hit the road, House-heads. I'll be holding out, though, for the "Jersey Shore Tour."
