I'm happy to announce that we will be adding a new feature on iRealHousewives.com, which we call it: In Other Bravo TV News. In this new feature, we will share news and rumors about the other Bravo TV shows that's not related to Real Housewives franchise. 

TV series such as Below Deck, Southern Charm, Shahs of Sunset, Girlfriends Guide to Divorce, Summer House, Flipping Out to name a few. Check out our first roundup on other Bravo reality and scripted television news below!

* Bravo decided not to renew Imposters for a third season. The Season 2 finale, which airs Thursday, June 7, will be the series’ last episode. Imposters is one of two original scripted series currently on Bravo, along with Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, which is headed into its fifth and final season this month, reports Deadline.

* Summer House is getting a major cast shake up for the show's upcoming third season. Twins Lauren and Ashley Wirkus, Stephen McGee, Amit Neuman and Danielle Olivera will not appear as series regulars on season 3, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

Lauren took to Instagram to confirm her and her sister's departure from the show. "Since many of you have asked, my sister and I will not be returning as cast members on Summer House this season," she wrote. "We are so grateful to Bravo for the past two summers and we are excited for what’s in store next. We love all of you for being a part of this journey with us! More to come very soon, happy summer everyone and see you in the Hamptons!"


The remaining cast members Carl Radke, Kyle Cooke, Amanda Batula and Lindsay Hubbard are all expected to return for a third season.

However, a source reveals that just because the twins, Stephen, Amit and Danielle are not regulars this season, that doesn’t mean they won’t appear in some capacity . “No one is a leaving on bad terms,” the insider adds, noting that no one was “axed,” according to The Daily Mail.

Page Six reports that the Bravo hit reality series recently found a Hamptons home for the cast to film season 3, but neighbors are not happy about the cameras taking over their neighborhood.

“Not one of the buyers was advised before closing that their multimillion-dollar retreat is next door to where a trashy reality TV show is being filmed,” a resident told the publication.

* Bravo's The Daily Dish has confirmed that Thomas Ravenel will not attend the upcoming Southern Charm Season 5 reunion amid sexual assault allegations.

While the network did not specifically say why Ravenel would not be in attendance, the news comes after the 55-year-old reality star made headlines in May for allegations of sexual assault. Two different women, including his former nanny, alleged that Ravenel assaulted them during separate encounters in 2015, reports Us Weekly.

“My client enjoys a certain degree of fame and unfortunately has become — unfairly — a target for an individual who has, in my opinion, dubious motivations,” said Ravenel’s attorney in a statement about the accusations on May 3.

The following day, the network announced that the production company for Southern Charm, Haymaker, is investigating the accusations. A source told the publication on May 24 that Ravenel’s future on the show will be determined after the Charleston police’s investigation is complete.

* Southern Charm Savannah Season 2 premieres on Monday, July 16 at 10/9c. Returning are Catherine Cooper, Daniel Eichholz, Hannah Pearson, Louis Oswald, and Lyle Mackenzie as they welcome newcomers Hagood Coxe and Brandon Branch into the group and offer a rare glimpse into a lavish society where legacy matters. Watch the official trailer below!



"This season on “Southern Charm Savannah,” things have changed drastically for the group. From trips to sunny Turks and Caicos to a wintery New York City, relationships will be tested and not all will weather the storm. Catherine has had a tumultuous year. Her relationship with Lyle is still in limbo, and she struggles with whether or not she wants to be with him, or if she’s just too afraid to break up with the one steady person in her life. This leaves Lyle angry and he must decide if he's willing to wait around for Catherine or finally move on. Daniel is having big trouble with his family, and has become passionate about making a name for himself even if it means leaving Savannah. However, while he’s trying to stay grounded with his friends, everyone notices that the former party boy isn't acting like himself, causing some concern among the group. On the cusp of turning 30, Hannah is busier than ever as she balances her day job, prepares to launch her eponymous dress line, and begins to search for her first house. However, whether that house includes Louis is yet to be determined. In addition, there are two new charmers being added to the group this year with Hagood Coxe and Brandon Branch," courtesy via Bravo's official press release.

Southern Charm New Orleans couple Reagan Charleston and Jeff Charleston has decided to separate after nearly six years of marriage. "Jeff and I have decided to separate and are devoting time to re-establishing a great friendship while focusing on personal growth apart," Reagan said in a statement to PEOPLE. "We are looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for us."

* Bravo's new reality series, who's under the working title as Untitled San Antonio Project has commenced filming after Ashley Paredez of the local Fox 7 News shared a video on Twitter, which some cast members were spotted filming scenes for the upcoming reality show.

According to NBCUniversal's press release via Bravo, the new docuseries "follows a tight knit group of women and their families living in San Antonio, Texas, who are affluent, sophisticated U.S. citizens or recently naturalized citizens of Mexican decent. In their upscale and beautiful gated communities, these women will face a new set of challenges in adapting to US culture while working to keep their roots alive and well."

It's been heavily rumored that the show will be part of the Real Housewives franchise, which will become The Real Housewives of San Antonio.


LALATE reports that the title may remain uncertain at the moment, " it may ultimately not carry a Real Housewives badge." If you recall, The Real Housewives of Dallas was initially commissioned by Bravo as Ladies of Dallas, a spin off of Ladies of London before Bravo changing their minds and adding it to the Real Housewives franchise, so anything is possible.

Many of the potential cast members for the upcoming new series were identified on social media over the weekend. According to The Bravo Boy, the ladies that have been spotted filming are Luz Ortiz, Karla Ramirez, Penelope Ayarzagoitia, Lorena (Unknown last), Janet Montagne, Anayancy Nolasco and Mayra Farret.






* Last month, it's was confirmed that Project Runway was returning to Bravo. The network launched "Project Runway" in 2004 where it continued airing through 2008, and now returns for Season 17. The show joins Bravo's diverse slate of programming and its expansion of seven nights a week of original series in primetime.

"We are beyond excited to reboot 'Project Runway' at the network where it all began. Leaning into the creative process in an entertaining way has always been part of Bravo's DNA, and 'Project Runway' perfectly captures that," said Frances Berwick, President Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "This franchise will be an important cornerstone to complement Bravo's original premium scripted and unscripted slate, and we expect it to drive the same level of fan-dom and passion as we experienced last time it was on Bravo," courtesy via Bravo's official press release.
