Donatella Arpaia’s Bravo Reality Show No Longer a Reality

When Frank Bruni sent word last Thursday that Donatella Arpaia would soon be in front of the cameras, we wondered whether he was referring to the Bravo reality show that was said to be in development a couple of years ago. Remember that? Whatever happened to it, anyway? Donatella’s rep tells us that “the Bravo show has morphed into a different concept for a different network; nothing is a done deal yet but we hope to know soon.” If we’re to believe Bruni, the “different concept” will be more cooking-focused, so don’t expect teary “I miss you” phone calls to Michael Psilakis.
