The Family Karma cast member said he met someone he’s “always had a thing for” at BravoCon 2022.

Is Brian Benni’s perfect match actually a fellow Bravolebrity?!

How to Watch

Catch up on Family Karma on Peacock or the Bravo App.

The Family Karma cast member, who split from girlfriend Monica Shah in 2021, is certainly single and ready to mingle on Season 3. After striking out and being friend-zoned by Richa Sadana’s pal Avni Parekh, Brian has officially moved out of his parents’ home. Now he’s really ready to take the next step in his adult life and focus on finding The One. 

During the January 8 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, host Andy Cohen tried to help Brian in his journey by showcasing his matchmaking skills (let’s not forget he was the first to suggest a connection between Ashley Darby and Luke Gulbranson, who have since split up).

In a game of “Eyein’ for Brian,” the Miami resident was tasked with hypothetically “swiping” on a dating app featuring eligible Bravolebrity bachelorettes.

The software consultant revealed he would swipe right and go out with Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent and Raquel LevissThe Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Cynthia Bailey, and The Real Housewives of Potomac’s Ashley Darby (who was the other guest on the episode).

He said he got to know Raquel at BravoCon 2022 back in October and that she was a “doll” who was “great,” but he’s long had eyes for someone from a different show — and she wasn’t on Andy’s original list. 

“I mean, I’ll be honest: GG,” Brian said about Shahs of Sunset’s Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. “GG is beautiful, and I’ve always had a thing for her. Definitely.”

Andy asked if Brian would be OK with the fact that GG already has a son, and he said yes because he’s “a grown, mature man.” 

After shooting his shot on the late-night talk series, Brian didn’t have to wait long to find out if GG was interested. Once the episode aired, GG reposted an Instagram Story that highlighted what Brian said about her. 

The Instagram Story asked GG to reveal if she thinks Brian is cute. As her response, she simply shared a GIF of a woman waving hello.
