Bravo made sure to “mention it all” at BravoCon 2023, dropping show teasers and more bombshell revelations.
The third annual convention kicked off in Las Vegas on Friday, November 3, with more than 150 Bravolebrities appearing at Caesars Forum throughout the weekend.
“I predict chaos. I predict people overdrinking and being overserved in Vegas,” Bravo superfan Danny Pellegrino exclusively told Us Weekly last month, speculating about what would go down at the three-day convention. “And I had a dream that I’m sitting at a blackjack table with Karen Huger [and] just gambling.”
He continued: “I’m really excited about the announcements. Usually, there’s always either new shows or new trailers for seasons. So, that’s what I’m most excited about.”

Both Brock and Lala attempted to defend Sandoval. “In a weird, weird way, I don’t care if you f–king boo me,” Lala chimed in. “With everyone really hating on Tom, he still went out, he still performed shows. Life went on. … If I were in his position, I’d tell y’all to go f–k off.”
Ariana Reveals Her and Sandoval’s Living Arrangements
Ariana, who is currently competing on Dancing With the Stars, revealed during the Pump Rules panel that they are not still living in their jointly-owned home.
“I’m currently staying somewhere while I’m doing Dancing because of the chaotic schedule,” she said. “Actively trying to change the ownership of the house situation.”
