Is there a network out there with stars as socially connected as Bravo? The appropriate answer to that question is "No, there isn't" -- and even among our socially-savvy roster, there are a few who made their way into the category of Social Star of the Year list this year. What makes up this criteria? It's hardly scientific, but our nominees all had varying elements of impact, trend-sparking, frequency, relevancy and just straight-up being interesting. Because really, isn't that what Twitter is all about?
We've narrowed it down to the following for our Social Star of the Year nominee list: Teresa Giudice, who makes as many headlines for her tweets as she does on Real Housewives of New Jersey; Andy Cohen, because his behind-the-scenes Watch What Happens Live pics are priceless; Reza Farahan, because reading his tweets in his voice will make you smile; NeNe Leakes, because who else can ping-pong between Real Housewives of Atlanta, Glee and The New Normal on a given week?; Gary Janetti is Brad Goreski's long-time boyfriend, but man that guy's tweets are funny (what would you expect from an EP of Will and Grace and Family Guy writer?); With his manic schedule and science-meets-delicious culinary skills, foodies get their fix with Richard Blais.
