Stars of the Real Housewives franchise made their dominance in the television industry known on Monday, as they arrived in full-force at the Upfronts in New York City.
The industry event is a gathering at the start of important advertising sales periods, held by television network executives and attended by major advertisers and the media.
RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice commanded attention in a busty, corset-style mesh top while RHOBH’s Kyle Richards showed off her effortless style in a brightly-colored trouser suit ensemble.
Kyle, 53, and Teresa, 49, were joined by fellow stars including RHOA’s Kenya Moore, RHOP’s Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant, RHOBH’s Garcelle Beauvais and RHOM’s Alexia Nepola.
Kenya, 51, looked elegant and ready for summer in a white ensemble with a fringe trimming.
The ring leader of the pack – Bravo boss Andy Cohen, 53, showed up dressed for business in a pinstripe suit and later posed with some of his favourite cast members.

In March this year, it was announced Bravo is set to reboot and completely recast The Real Housewives of New York City after 13 seasons.
The network is said to be searching for a more diverse group of friends who best reflect one of the most multi-cultural cities in America.
It came after the most recent season saw declining ratings, and did not receive the all-important reunion episode.
The current line-up of stars are Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Leah McSweeney, and Eboni K. Williams.
While those Housewives will not be featured in the main show, there will be a second spin-off show featuring past beloved stars, with a working title of either ‘RHONY Throwback’ or ‘RHONY: Legacy.’
Andy revealed the news at the time in an interview with Variety.
He said the two-part strategy ‘takes into account everything that our passionate audience has really been telling us over the last year,’ and will involve ‘rebooting and recasting’ the series from scratch.

‘You know that we’re at a crossroads for RHONY,’ Cohen told the outlet. ‘We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan that we’ve come up with, I think, is a real gift to the fans.’
Talking about searching for a more diverse cast for the reboot, Cohen told Variety: ‘This is the most multicultural, diverse, and energetic and exciting city in America: We are searching for a multicultural group of friends who really best reflect the most exciting city in the country.’
‘We’re looking for a group of women who are real friends, and who are of diverse backgrounds, races and religions.’

Last year, a spokesperson from Bravo told DailyMail.com that the reunion show for RHONY had been cancelled.
‘Due to scheduling challenges around taping the reunion of “The Real Housewives of New York City” in a timely manner, Bravo confirmed there will not be a reunion for this season,’ they said.
Season 13 recorded its lowest rated episode of all-time, earning only 764,000 live viewers. (The only episodes rated lower were the ‘secrets’ recap episodes for season seven and 12.)

It also saw the departure of fan-favorite Dorinda Medley as well as Tinsley Mortimer and featured Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Leah McSweeney and newcomer Eboni K. Williams.
Williams, the first black Housewife in franchise history, has butted heads with show OGs Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps throughout the season.
Some have accused the attorney and former Fox News host of being ‘too woke’ and attributed her serious storylines about race relations to be at least partly responsible for the ratings slump.
