Bravo: We're Not Developing Any Type of Gay 'A-List' Show

Despite reports last month that the show had already been cast, Bravo insists that it isn't developing their own version of Logo's 'A-List' that would be something like 'The Real Gay Housewives' (or the title that was rumored, From the Bottom to the Top).

AfterElton: Andy_cohen

Says Bravo Media president Frances Berwick, "No, we’re not doing a version of that [a gayHousewives]. It would not be wildly outside of our milieu to do something that focused specifically on gay characters. But as to doing Real Gay Housewives, we’re not going there. Or something like The A-list, although I never saw a full episode, we wouldn’t do that."

AfterElton also spoke with Lauren Zalanick, President NBC Universal Women and Lifestyle Entertainment Networks, who echoed Berwick's comments. Asked about reports Cohen had a "gay"Housewives show in the works, Zalanick says, "He has never talked about a gay male version of theHousewives. I’ve never heard him say that, and I don’t know why he would....[The online report is] made up, I’m telling you. There’s absolutely nothing in development and never has been. I will say we do have casting out there around a group of gay guys. In terms of Andy casting it, we have a team. We have a couple [of different shows]. I would say, really early days, we’re in development, but we’re also developing a ton of other things."

  2. Years ago Bravo used to have reality shows about gay marriages and gay adoptions and now its all housewives and wannabee designers. Andy did a interview saying he thinks bravo is bisexual but it used to be gay. totally gay.

  3. I used to think Andy Cohen was so adorable, not only in the way he looked, but also how he spoke and presented himself. Now, all I see of him is trashy, exploitative television.

    Liam is right. Bravo used to have semi-quality programming. Now, I can barely stand even channel surfing through it.

  4. Well...there goes my reason for existing. This is worse than shoah.

    Andy Cohen isn't just a stepford gay...he's not just a sloppy caricature of crass two dimensional pop culture stuffed into a suit...a fraud...fake shallow person...he's also an alcoholic.

  5. Andy Cohen is an embarrassment to the human race not just to the gay community

  6. You have to question the veracity of a report which can't even bother to get the spelling of Lauren ZALAZNICK right.
