You Won’t Believe What Is Bringing Caroline Manzo, Dolores Catania, AND Cynthia Bailey Together
Oh yeah, Jeff Lewis and someone RHOBH fans will recognize are also joining these Real Housewives for the new TV project.
If you can’t stand the beefs, then get into the kitchen. This summer, a number of Bravolebs will appear on E!’s Celebrity Beef, which, according to a press release, “turns pop culture feuds into a battle of foods.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Cynthia Bailey will go up against fellow Celebrity Big Brother Season 3 cast member Todd Bridges (more on that in the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen clip above!); The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Dolores Catania will cook against RHONJ alum Caroline Manzo, and Flipping Out designer Jeff Lewis will be joined by actress Missi Pyle as they face off against pro wrestlers Nikki and Brie Bella.
Other contestants include Cheryl Hines and Rachael Harris, Ben Higgins and Nick Viall, Andy Grammer and Justin Baldoni, and Justin Sylvester (fans will recognize him from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) and Loni Love.
The series will premiere on August 2 on E!, with Joel McHale hosting the cooking show. BTW, it’s all for a good cause, as the winner will go home with not only a trophy but also $10,000 for their charity of choice.
Caroline shared her excitement about the series in an Instagram post, writing, “I won’t tell you who my opponent was yet, but [Joel McHale] is adorable and I had so.much.fun.”
Looking for more details about E!’s Celebrity Beef? Well, the press release describes the series as such:
“This comedic competition series will follow two celebrity contestants each week as they go head-to-head in a cook-off and squash their beef with knives in hand, spices on the rack, and ready to prepare the best dish this side of the Hollywood Hills. As the celebrities attempt to settle the score in the kitchen, things get spicy as they reveal the inside scoop of their rivalry. As host, Joel acts as prosecutor, judge and jury, creating twists and turns with various challenges throughout the showdown. The winner of each challenge will have an advantage over their competitor, such as being treated to exclusive ingredients, while the loser receives a cruel punishment, like swapping out their knives for gardening tools. At the end of each episode, the contestants present their final meal to Joel for the ultimate taste test, as he crowns one person the winner and helps the duos squash their beef once and for all.”
