Bravo’s “Housewives Live” tour coming to Atlanta

NeNe Leakes will appear at the Atlanta tour stop.

NeNe Leakes will appear at the Atlanta tour stop.

Bravo is taking its show on the road, staging a “Real Housewives Live” tour with stops in Atlanta as well as Chicago and Atlantic City.

The Atlanta show will be Oct. 15  at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.

In a bit of crafty marketing, each stop will feature housewives from various cities. The Atlanta show features only NeNe Leakes from the locally shot program. She’ll be joined by  Jill Zarin from New York, Melissa Gorga from New Jersey and Marysol Patton from Miami.

If you want to see Phaedra Parks you’ll need to travel to Chicago. She’ll appear Oct. 8 at the Venue at Horseshoe Casino along with Sonja Morgan of New York City, Gretchen Rossi of Orange County and Lisa Vanderpump of Beverly Hills.

The Oct. 1 show in Atlantic City, at Caesars Circus Maximus Theater, features none of the Atlanta ladies. That event will feature Caroline Manzo of New Jersey, LuAnn de Lesseps of New York City, Kyle Richards of Beverly Hills and Vicki Gunvalson of Orange County.

Tickets for each stop go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.

From the Bravo announcement:

“Fans will have the chance to get up-close and personal with their favorite cast members as the ladies discuss the most talked about moments, reveal cast secrets and answer questions straight from the audience.”

Each stop will offer “VIP tickets” where (for an additional fee, of course), fans get “the chance to live like a celebrity as they gain exclusive access to a pre-show cocktail reception hosted by the Real Housewives, walk the red carpet through a special private entrance, receive a limited edition tour laminate and secure premium seating.”

Tickets range from $49.50 to $170 for the red carpet treatment. See www.BravoTV.com or www.ticketmaster.com.for details.

I watch all the shows (are they really going to bring the horrible Miami show back?) but even I wouldn’t bother with this mess.

You would have to be a FOOL to actually pay for this. How much more can they reveal outside of the Watch what happens next, the reunion specials and Twitter?! Sounds like they are getting more footage to air on tv and charging stans of the show to get an audience.

They have to be kidding with the prices. So the prices are just for the “VIP” treatment right? Tickets for the actual event MUST be free. Who would pay to see this?

@the TRUTH. what’s the saying, a fool and his money are soon parted?

I love watching the trainwreck because it’s entertaining. But i’d never spend a penny on the Real Trailertrash Housewives of Duluth.

Sorry to be the grammar nazi here, but the TRUTH, your first comment should be *they’re* and your second comment should be *waste*…not being rude or anything.

If people are willing to pay for this kind of entertainment then the recession and struggling economy is just a ruse.

I would totally go if Nene and Theresa from the Real Housewives of New Jersey were on stage. That Theresa is crazier than Nene, and would so check her. Now that would be awesome.

@Peachy, this is a blog. Please get over yourself!

I just don’t think they will sell many tickets for this event. These are “reality” stars, not A-list celebrities. They’ll lose more than they will make.

You must be kidding me!?! If there are really people who would pay that much (or anything for that matter) to see those women – then P.T. Barnum was more right than he knew. The smart one is Bravo for figuring out how to milk more money from viewers of this trash (although I must admit that I watch it once in a while).

@peachy I was going to type the same thing, blog or not it’s still spelled incorrectly. OAN, people will pay to see these ladies whether one agrees with it or not. Atlanta is not the only housewives franchise were the women act a complete fool! If a person is going to judge, be an equal opportunist. I can go on for days about the women of New York, New Jersey, Beverly Hills, Orange County and Miami. IMO, I think they ONLY person that has really come on top is Bethanny! I’d pay to see her!

I used to be a big Housewives buff, but have since backed way off. I still might check out Beverly Hills in the upcoming season, but not the others. I say that to say at one time for whatever reason I might have been interested in attending something like this. However, now, I just think buying a ticket to see these do-nothings would be too much of a boost to their already inflated egos. No thanks.

My instincts tell me this whole Housewives thing has reached its pinnacle and is now on a downslope. The novel has worn off, they “cast” members now come off more as bad actors than people showing “reality.” Next…

Also, I can rest assure myself that ther will be hundreds of comments about this posting. It just goes to show that people are really more interested than they put on to be. @peachatl…people are going to pay $$$ to see these ladies, NeNe and all.

If I want to see cartoon-like negative stereotypes from the Jewish, Black, Latino, and Italian communities, I can actually just turn Bravo TV on for free – why would I pay my vary hard earned money to see them in living form on a stage (??).

You could not pay me to sit through the show. I would *love” to see the riders for the tour for each of the “housewives”. The women who choose to participate in the show seem to consistently face divorce & bankruptcy. Let’s hope their creditors get paid…
