Bravo gives Bethenny Frankel, Christian Siriano, and Fabio Viviani their own reality series

Three stars of Bravo reality series are getting their own docudrama reality shows.

As expected, The Real Housewives of New York City‘s Bethenny Frankel will get her own docudrama that’s “an up close and personal look at her career.” That series has been rumored since July, and although Bethenny is currently filming Real Housewives, reports suggest she’s not interacting with the other women as much, setting up her departure.

Meanwhile, Project Runway 4 winner Christian Siriano’s show “will follow the New York based designer as he takes his burgeoning fashion lines and career to the next level,” and Top Chef 5 finalist Fabio Viviani’s upcoming series “focuses on the extravagant Viviani and his business partner Jacopo Falleni as they try to reach a wider and more diverse client base and cater high-end events,” Bravo said in a press release.
