‘Vanderpump Rules’, a popular Bravo show received its recognition when it was announced to be nominated in Emmy Awards 2023 on Wednesday. The program started reshooting months after season 10 ended to document an alleged case of the infidelity of its star cast Tom Sandoval with his girlfriend, Ariana Madix who is also a part of the show. It is a matter of contention in the industry to award Vanderpump Rules with Emmy.
Its nomination for the 75th Emmy Awards is announced by Yvette Nicole Brown. Vanderpump Rules is up for the award this year in the category of “best loosely organized show” and it will now face off against some of the hit popular shows including Netflix’s “Selling Sunset” and “Indian Matchmaking”, MTV’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked” and FX’s “Welcome to Wrexham” to top the list.
Although many Bravo shows like “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List”, “Below Deck” and others have earlier been selected as Emmy nominees, what makes Vanderpump Rules’ nomination more historic is the fact that VPR, despite having started its journey as a spinoff of “The Real Housewives of Beverly”, made its entry in the Emmy Awards nominee list, while the latter could not take it that far.
A Big Recognition For Vanderpump Rules
The show created more sensation among the public after Tom Sandoval’s alleged betrayal of his girlfriend Ariana Madix, with whom he has been in a relationship for 9 years, with Raquel Leviss, another cast of the show. This involvement in matters of personal lives stirs up the audience even more about the show. The shooting for its 11th season has already started.
Bravo is receiving nominations one after another for the hit shows it premiered, among them the most popular being “Top Chef’. This show, apart from being rewarded in the category of ‘Reality show competition program’, was again nominated for the host, Padma Lakshmi, who announced a few days back that she would no longer be performing in this show. In the Emmy nomination announcement, there is also a mention of a posthumous award for Ray Liotta for his contribution to Black Bird premiered on Apple TV+ in July.
