Quiz: Tell Me About the Drama in Your Life, and I’ll Tell You What Bravo Show To Watch

As a self-proclaimed Bravo Dyke, I spend an alarming amount of time immersed in the drama of people from reality television who I have never met. And even still, I often fall out of the loop on the between-seasons drama and have to be brought up to speed by my girlfriend because there is SIMPLY. TOO. MUCH. DRAMA. AT. ALL. TIMES.

  1. I got Real Housewives of NYC. I would like to be in a good word for city meetings– often dramatic, sometimes has political consequences for you and your neighbors. I can’t believe it’s free.

  2. Below Deck does sound interesting. I feel like I saw it on tv at someone’s house or in a waiting room somewhere once, and service workers dealing with rich people sounds like exactly the kind of drama I’d most sympathize with lol.

  3. I got literally the only show on Bravo I don’t watch, so it’s probably time for me to embark on Real Girlfriends in Paris I guess! As someone who explains their whole “thing” by quoting Lisa Wu’s RHOA tagline of “If it doesn’t make me money, I don’t do it,” this quiz makes me feel #seen.
