Cable companies are making their annual formal presentations for what’s in store next season at big “Upfront” bashes, and Wednesday night was Bravo’s night to shine at the Skylight Studio in New York City! On the long list of Bravo-lebrities in attendance were Isaac Mizrahi of Launch My Line, Camilla Alves (with hubby Matthew McConaughey) of Shear Genius, Inside the Actor’s Studio‘s James Lipton and Jeff Lewis of Flipping Out.

But the real stars of the evening (and of Bravo for that matter!) were the nation’s real housewives, who invaded The Big Apple like an army of siliconically-enhanced, long-legged and sexy sassy soldiers! Though the ladies from New Jersey, New York City and Atlanta were in the house as well, this post is all about the big bang of The Real Housewives franchise – the drama mamas from Orange County!

Though noticeably absent were the crynamic duo of Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalsen, the NYC still got a taste of gold digging, plastic surgery and Bible-thumping in the fabulous feminine forms of Gretchen Rossi, Lynne Curtin and Alexis Bellino!

But the Upfront gala wasn’t completely about all the old things at Bravo, they also announced new things in store for fans next season. From The New York Times:

The new Bravo series to come for 2010-11 include another “Real Housewives,” set in Beverly Hills, California; a scripted series from Darren Star of “Sex and the City,” about a drag queen; and a couple of additional food shows.
