Exclusive Bravo's Version Of 'The View' Sources tell RumorFix exclusively that Bravo is moving forward with developing a The View type daytime talk show with eight former and current Bravolebrities. According to the most recent development plan, each host will be given a specialty, and they will rotate in and out of the show. We're told Watch What Happens Live's Andy Cohen is somehow involved in the concept of the show, but it's unknown if he'll actually take part in it. Although there is no release date yet, Bravo is aiming for Fall or early next year. Here are the Bravolebrities who are rumored to be under consideration:
  • Gregory Gourdet, recent runner-up from Top Chef -- FOOD & WINE (Gregory narrowly missed the Top Chef slot to winner Mei Lin, but became known for his dynamic personality in addition to his expertise in the culinary arts)

  • Reza Farahan from Shahs of Sunset -- WORLD & TRAVEL (Reza has made his mark as a humorous cultural expert on fitting in in different parts of the world and would cover world stories from politics to travel destinations)

  • Candace Smith from Millionaire Matchmaker -- LOVE & ROMANCE (Candace joined Millionaire last year after being a contestant on Survivor and with the Miss USA pageant. She also holds a law degree)

  • Tom Sandoval from Vanderpump Rules -- FASHION & STYLE -(Tom is known for being one of the most stylish “spornosexual” on Bravo and frequently contributes advice to his cast mates)

  • Kathy Wakile from The Real Housewives of New Jersey -- FAMILY & LIFESTYLE (Following her departure from the reality show, Kathy has started her own dessert business and published a book, and wants to share her expertise as a mom of two)
Bravo's Version Of 'The View' It seems the concept of the show is to break down stereotypes like having a straight male fashion guy and a gay sports guy. Bravo doesn't comment on casting decisions.
