You can never get enough of the Bravoverse, so when your favorite series like Real Housewives or Vanderpump Rules is currently filming, it is good to know that there are podcasts that can help contribute to your Bravo addiction.
Some hosts interview the hottest stars, bring their sassy take, or break down the drama with behind-the-scenes sources. Whatever your choice, listening to other opinions on the series you love is always fun. In the last few years, podcasts have become a new source of entertainment for Bravo fans who continually crave the drama.
Watch What Crappens
Personally, it took me a while to jump on the podcast bandwagon, but thanks to my equally Bravo-obsessed friend, I’m a fan. The show‘s title is a sassy nod to Watch What Happens Live, and a lot is spilled during this podcast.
The theme is everything Bravo and is pretty much the Holy Grail for Bravo fans who want to keep up to date on all the drama. Hosts Ben Mandelker and Ronnie Karam know their history, too, which is great, especially when you are a fan who forgets what happened five seasons ago. The duo often invite some major players onto their forum.
Reality With the King
The host, Carlos King, was named number 18 on the Hollywood Reporter for The Most Powerful Producers in Unscripted Television, so his podcast is worth tuning in to. Carlos recently chatted with the OG of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes, and is infamously known for getting all the tea the housewives spill.
This particular podcast takes an internal look into some of the network’s and franchises’ most iconic moments, including the fights. The best part of this podcast is that before starting his own show, Carlos worked on RHOA for four years and the Real Housewives of New Jersey for three years, so he knows how the sausage (or housewives) are made. Naturally, Carlos has defined knowledge of the Bravo world and is like an encyclopedia of knowledge for listeners.
Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino
Personally, I love Everything Iconic because Danny gives me flashbacks to my teenage years in the 2000s when Jessica Simpson belted her heart out on SNL, proving Nick Lachey was the lesser of the two, or when Rosie O’Donnell used to shoot Koosh toys into her audience. Pushing past my Lisa Frank memories, Danny also provides a hit of Bravo and recently interviewed Tamra Judge about the newest season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Danny’s witty humor makes this podcast a delight to follow.
Along with his sense of whimsy, Danny often has some heavy hitters during his interview segments, which include Vanderpump Rules stars, Drew Barrymore and Idina Menzel. Fun fact—Danny has a working relationship with Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, since he helped co-author their cocktail book, Fancy AF Cocktails.
Reality Life With Kate Casey
Kate Casey’s podcast gives me life, as she offers a Bravo Breakdown segment that explains everything that happened over the week in the Bravosphere. If you happen to have a busy week working and being an adult (I know, ew), she ties everything up in a nice neat bow so you are not on the outs.
Kate adds a new dimension to her podcast by also interviewing Bravo producers, so fans can see the drama from another angle. Fans can catch Kate’s interviews four times a week, so there is always something to listen to no matter what is going on.
Cocktails & Gossip
This podcast started as a Bravo fan account, with the hosts, B and Amanda, being huge fans of the network’s shows. When listening to this podcast, it feels like you’re hanging out with an old friend, as the duo have a great rapport with one another.
