Among the cabler’s first scripted forays, in addition to the Marti Noxon-penned Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce (starring House alum Edelstein as a soon-to-be divorcee navigating the single world, again), a green light was given to Odd Mom Out, in which author and fashionista Jill Kargman stars in a version of her own life among the uberwealthy momzillas of New York’s Upper East Side.

    Have they axed the housewives of NY, O.C. and Miami?

    • KSM says:

      Don’t know about Miami, b ut since OC is about to come back and NYC just started, they are probably on a different renewal cycle. They have to see how it does/who is willing to come back and work with them after the season airs. That’s how they usually seem to work. Can’t imagine NYC or OC going away any time soon. I don’t know anyone that likes Miami though, so we’ll see about that one.

      • Hannah says:

        If they ax Miami I want a spin off like “Million Dollar Bruja” or “Beautiful Bruja” or “the Bruja of Miami”. More Bruja please!!!

    …and I was never able to pry my wife away from the TV again.

  3. Christy says:

    What about Real Housewives of OC?

  4. lefty says:

    This is Caroline Manzo.

  5. scooter says:

    Another RH spinoff?? Oh, God, kill me now.

    Yeah, I know…. I’m probably in the minority.

  6. Kaycee says:

    Very excited for Girlfriend’s Guide. Has a wonderful cast!

  7. Emma Wheeler says:

    Any word on Southern Charm? It’s my favourite.

  8. Chris C says:

    Any word on Tabatha Takes Over?

    • Roni says:

      Tabatha is going to be a guest on Watch What Happens this Tuesday, so they’ll probably mention something about the show then.

  9. Et al. says:

    So is Jeff Lewis done on Bravo? Neither of his shows are mentioned.

    • r0ckmypants says:

      No, it doesn’t mean anything. Bravo hands out rolling renewals. Like, was there any doubt RHONJ would be back for season six? No, but this serves as its official renewal.

      But I wouldn’t be surprised if at least one of Jeff’s two shows is done, considering how low Flipping Out is this season and Jenni’s newborn likely affecting her commitment to Interior Therapy.

  10. Boiler says:

    Another pox on society

  11. Julie says:

    Should we assume that 100 Days of Summer is cancelled?

  12. Steven says:

    Really want to know about Tabatha Takes Over. it’s the only show on Bravo I care about.

  13. Bailey says:

    I am really looking forward to that Girlfriends Guide show. It sounds like something new instead of the usual recycled programs. I think I’ve read somewhere it’s a dramedy. We need more of these.

  14. DavidSask says:

    I miss TABATHA and she must come back. I am shocked that Don’t Be Tardy is back, what else does that family do? RHOM seems to be a goner!! They should have focused on more scripted dramas to be honest, rolling out 2 is not enough!

  15. EmmaY says:

    I hope Chef Roble comes back on this summer, any word on that show?

  16. Dakota says:

    Hi Matt, is there any word at all on Tabatha? I’m gathering from the wall of silence for such a long period of time that she probably isn’t coming back but I thought the show was doing well in the ratings? It’s hard to tell from here in Australia, but if you have any insight that’d be great!

  17. Carol kelly says:

    What about housewives of Long Island!!!!!I WOULD BE GREAT WITH MY FRIENDS

  18. Sara says:

    I am so excited about million dollar listing l.a. Glad that the 2 joshs’ are back, and the twins look interesting!

    What happened to the Housewives of Long Island
