BravoCon tickets are on sale, and The Real Housewives fans are astounded by the prices. BravoCon, which launched in 2019, is a yearly event held at New York City’s Javits Center. During this interactive event, fans can meet their favorite Bravo stars from shows such as The Real Housewives franchise, Below Deck, Southern Charm, Summer House, and Married to Medicine. BravoCon engages its audience with panels where reality stars spill all the tea and will have a bigger star-studded Watch What Happens Live, along with live performances from Bravolebrities.
Since Bravo announced its attendees, Real Housewives stars such as Garcelle Beauvais and Tamra Judge have tweeted that they are going to BravoCon. Most of The Real Housewives franchises are slated to attend, but fans have noted that The Real Housewives of New York City was left off the roster. However, former RHONY stars Jill Zarin and Dorinda Medley will be at BravoCon. Many fans were also disappointed to see that none of The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast are attending besides RHOA newcomer Sanya Richards-Ross.
After BravoCon revealed how much the tickets were, fans expressed their shock. Real Housewives fan Anthony Dominic tweeted, “Not only is #Bravocon $430+ a ticket. They also want you to pay extra for other events like #WWHL. I’ll watch the highlights online.” Mark responded, “I love the housewives but they ain’t big enough celebrities for me to pay even 50 dollars to see them. Lol.” The general admission tickets are $430 for three days, but VIP tickets start at $825 and go up to $1,950, which doesn’t include taxes and other fees. Alex tweeted, “For a fraction i could fly to amsterdam in a cheap rinna wig and recreate the glass throw.”
Many Bravo fans commented on how it would be cheaper to see a concert by a famous band. Denise Willlyamz tweeted, “I’d rather pay more to see Beyoncé.” The Boss BI*CH commented, “Coachella costs less! Hell no.” Fans also wondered if there would be access one-day pass, as they had done for the last BravoCon in 2019. Some argued that $430 wasn’t bad for a three-day event that is filled with bars and shopping. However, while most Twitter users shared their love of The Real Housewives, the sticker price didn’t justify losing a large chunk of their paychecks.
Similar to the 2019 BravoCon, which sold out in less than a minute, 2022 also sold out quickly. With ticket prices so high, it seems only a select few can see their favorite Real Housewives stars in person. Fans from out of town who want to go to BravoCon 2022 will also have to shell out money for plane tickets and hotels, along with having to dine out at an NYC restaurant. Sadly, BravoCon 2022’s prices aren’t recession-friendly, and many fans of The Real Housewives will have to be resigned to watching snippets from home. However, single-day tickets are now on presale from $170- $350.
