Snap Judgment: Bravo Announces 15 New Shows
By Stacy Lambe
On Tuesday, Bravo announced that it was adding 15 new shows to its roster as well as bringing back 16 current hit programs for another season (or two). Among the new programs are scripted series about moms, new docu-reality series about pageant queens and British socialites and spin-offs of current hit series, such as Top Chef and The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
