Some folks break the internet— Brynn Whitfield  breaks the escalator. In an instantly iconic moment from BravoCon 2023, The Real Housewives of New York City cast member shut down a Las Vegas escalator when her Louboutin stilettos became wedged in it. (Watch the clip above to relive the big moment.)

Now, a few months later, Brynn is still affected by the fashion mishap. And in a recent Instagram share, she revealed how the incident haunts—and dizzies—her to this day.

In the immediate aftermath of the BravoCon incident, people couldn't get enough of the shoe situation. "It's like the Wicked Witch of the West," noted Daryn Carp, who was at the scene of the escalator incident to moderate the "It's Ladies Night" panel with Brynn and other Bravolebrity guests.

A close-up of the shoes showed they were stuck in the escalator, with the heels pointed down below the machinery's final step. "This is everything. Is this your first time on an escalator?!" Daryn asked.

"I knew they were going to get stuck. I could feel it," Brynn replied. "It looks like the Wizard of Oz. Do I have to pay for the escalator?" However, she was undaunted.  "I have a cute pedicure so I don't care," Brynn quipped "You have to be prepared."

Andy Cohen later made a special appearance at the panel discussion. "That is iconic," he said upon seeing the stuck Louboutins. "Is there a dead person under it? That is the photo of BravoCon." And indeed, the moment lives on.
