Here For Drama presents Tequila-Thon: A Real Housewives Benefit Reading, a dramatic LIVE reading of one of the best trips ever taken by Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. Brace yourselves for chemically-peeled faces, arguments over bedrooms and who said what when to Page Six, self-inflicted stab wounds, poolside-catharsis, a Countess in a bush, a rose and a thorn, and the definitive explanation of the difference between Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. And, for those of you 21-and-over, a drinking game to play along at home if you’re so inclined!
Featuring: Ira Madison III (as Bethenny), Phillip Henry (as Ramona), Natalie Walker (as Sonja), Ryan Houlihan (as Luann), Milly Tamarez (as Dorinda), Paul McCallion (as Tinsley), Michael Benjamin (as Carole) and Sarah Galli (as Narrator).
Update: Due to an overwhelming show of support, Brooklyn Community Bail Fund has asked that donations be directed elsewhere. This page has been updated to reflect that.
