Ana Quincoces Reveals Which ‘Real Housewives’ Stars Did And Didn’t Donate To Her Reunion Dress Fundraiser!

Ana Quincoces recently appeared on the David Yontef's podcast, Behind the Velvet Rope, where the Real Housewives of Miami alum discussed her efforts to raise money for the #CVID-19 relief by selling dresses previously worn by past and current stars of Bravo's Real Housewives franchise.

While the SkinnyLatina founder received a lot of support from many fellow Housewives, including Andy Cohen, Ana revealed which cast members did donate to the cause and which ones snubbed her.

Her initial post was just a tweet where she tagged Cohen. In the tweet, Quincoces asked all Housewives to consider donating their reunion dress for the auction. “Then Andy contacted me and said he really liked the idea and [asked] how he could support,” she recalled, according to a report by Cheat Sheet. “And then I started reaching out to as many ladies as I could.”

Quincoces revealed that her former co-stars Adriana De Moura, Joanna Krupa, and Karent Sierra from RHOM instantly wanted to be involved prior to going public with the action. She also revealed that she sent a text message to Marysol Alexia Echevarria and Marysol Patton. “I hadn’t spoken to Marysol in years, Alexia I have spoken to more regularly but not often either,” she said. They both then reached out to Quincoces and most of the cast is back in touch as a result.

She also connected with Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow. Quincoces said, “She’s cool [about Dubrow], I’ve always liked her. And then she contacted Tamra [Judge] for me.”

She also revealed that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Sutton Stracke immediately sent something for the auction. She said Stracke’s dress is not Dolce & Gabbana but is “cool.” Also, Dina and Caroline Manzo from The Real Housewives of New Jersey offered a dress. She says the casts from RHONJ, RHOC, and RHOM have been very generous.

Sonja Morgan from The Real Housewives of New York City sent the most dresses for the auction. “Sonja sent me four dresses,” Quincoces exclaimed. They are all from Sonja's clothing line, Sonja By Sonja Morgan. “I’m impressed with those dresses,” Ana said. Lynda Erkiletian from The Real Housewives of D.C. donated her reunion and promo dress. Cohen donated a suit “from one of his reunions.” Luann de Lesseps donated a statement necklace from her Countess Collection line.

While receiving support from many cast women from the franchise, some never sent a dress or completely snubbed Ana.

“I reached out to Lea [Black from RHOM]. I sent her a text message, I sent her a message on Twitter and you know … nothing,” she said. Quincoces admits that she was surprised she didn’t hear from Black, especially since she's very philanthropic.

Also, “I don’t have anyone from [The Real Housewives of Atlanta], not a single person,” she said. “Which I’m sad about because Atlanta is such a big …” But luckily for Ana, she said Andy Cohen made up for it by adding a signed reunion notecard from the RHOA Season 12 virtual reunion to the auction.

LeeAnne Locken and Danielle Staub also committed but haven’t sent anything. “Like Danielle Staub [from RHONJ],” Ana said. “I don’t know if she’s going to send it or not send it.”

“Kelly Dodd [from RHOC], I reached out to her several times and she’s in New York and she’s says already donated all her dresses,” she says. Also, Quincoces got the impression that Vicki Gunvalson from RHOC didn’t want to be part of it. She’s reached out to the team for Lisa Vanderpump from RHOBH but never heard back.

So who donated their dresses? Find out the complete list below. Ana is participating alongside her former co-stars Adriana De Moura, Alexia Echevarria, Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, Lauren Foster, and Marysol Patton. Patton also shared a rosary from her late mother, Mama Elsa.

Real Housewives of New Jersey's Caroline Manzo, Dina Manzo, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Jackie Goldschneider and Teresa Giudice have got in on the action too, according to PEOPLE as have Real Housewives of New York City stars Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan.

The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Emily Simpson, Heather Dubrow, Lizzie Rovsek, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador also joined the good cause and passed along their iconic gowns.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Camille Grammer, Denise Richards, Eileen Davidson, Joyce Giraud, and Sutton Stracke also chipped in, plus Real Housewives of Potomac stars Karen Huger and Monique Samuels and The Real Housewives of D.C. stars Lynda Erkiletian and Mary Amos.

That's not all, even Andy Cohen got in on the action, offering up his Todd Synder suit as well as a signed question card from the recent RHOA Season 12 virtual reunion.

Bidding for the auction is now open Bidding is open now and some of the items are valued at more than $5,000. Some of the items include Grammer's strapless black and silver sequin Halpern dress (from the RHOBH season 9 reunion dress), Judge's black mini Zhivago number (from the RHOC season 13 reunion), and Quincoces's own Ella Bella Rozio green stretch satin ensemble (from the RHOM season 2 reunion).

Richards sent her white and silver beaded Jovani dress from the RHOBH opening credits, while Windham-Burke donated the blue sequin NBD X NAVEN mini she wore delivering her tagline in her first season of RHOC. Aydin picked the Zhivago wrap dress she donned in RHONJ's promo shoots, according to PEOPLE. All items are not gowns as de Lesseps' own clear crystal necklace from her Countess Collection. Patton gave Mama Elsa's silver-toned rosary with pink crystal stones.

Quincoces wrote on her website that she was inspired to get the auction started when she was brainstorming ways to help her friends and family on the front lines of the COVID-19 fight and stumbled upon an old reunion dress.

All proceeds will go to #FirstRespondersFirst — an initiative created by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Thrive Global, and the CAA Foundation to provide frontline healthcare workers with the health and safety resources they so desperately need.

"As many of us in the workforce are being asked to serve public health by stepping back and staying home, one population is being tasked to step forward," Quincoces wrote. "Our frontline health workers are the pandemic’s first responders. And they are lacking even rudimentary resources as they risk their own health and endure exhaustion, burnout and many other challenges on our behalf."

"They’re taking care of us," she said. "We need to help take care of them."

Bidding will continue through June 12. If you would like to make a bid or learn more information about this action, click here!
