2023 has delivered some epic Bravo crossovers, but this one is, perhaps, the most heartwarming.

How to Watch

Catch up on Race in America on the Bravo App.

Earlier this week, Southern Charm’s Leva Bonaparte headed to Florida to show her support for Guerdy Abraira. The Real Housewives of Miami cast member was tapped to speak at a fundraising event for the Pink Luminous Advocacy Project — a nonprofit organization that aims to improve early detection of breast cancer.

The event, dubbed “Light Up the Night,” took place Thursday (October 19) at Contessa Miami, where attendees enjoyed cocktails, dinner, live entertainment, and more. Leva documented the evening in an October 20 Instagram photo, which showed her and Guerdy sitting side-by-side at the bar.

"Got to see this Beauty last night! A dinner to celebrate life, health and blessings!” she captioned the post. “[Guerdy] so proud of your resilience through this journey! [F**k cancer] this woman is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside which says a lot, as she is stunning! love ya friend! Happy to see you with this clean Bill of health! Can’t wait to wait the next season of my fav gals on RHOM.”

Guerdy, who is in the midst of her own breast cancer battle, returned the kind words in the comments section.

“How I love you so baby girl!” she wrote. “Loved getting the boys together and seeing your beautiful face again.”

Leva and Guerdy attended the fundraiser alongside their husbands, Lamar Bonaparte and Russell Abraira, respectively. The hubbies appeared in one of Guerdy’s Instagram Stories, but their cameos were relatively brief.

“Look who’s in the 305! I love you, Leva!” Guerdy said in one of the posts, before turning the camera toward Lamar and Russell. “And wait, wait, even better… one second. We got the boys in the building, too. They hate the cameras, but that’s why we love them.”

Guerdy Abraira's Cancer Battle

The event coincided with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and occurred more than five months after Guerdy announced her cancer diagnosis. The mother of two shared the heartbreaking news via Instagram, where she has continued to document her health journey.

It was about a month ago when the event planner celebrated her final round of chemotherapy at the Memorial Healthcare System in South Florida. She reflected on the experience in an emotional post that showed her with Russell and their two sons, 14-year-old Miles and 9-year-old Liam.

“Last chemo round!!!” she captioned the September 14 Instagram post. “On to 20 rounds of radiation but that’s cake walk compared to this!!!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR KEEPING ME IN YOUR PRAYERS. Thank you also to my amazing oncology team and chemo nurses… (I love you Rose, best nurse ever).”

Guerdy’s cancer battle will be addressed in RHOM Season 6, which debuts November 1 on Bravo. Guerdy will be joined by returning ’Wives Alexia NepolaLarsa PippenLisa HochsteinJulia Lemigova, and Dr. Nicole Martin.
