Back in December, Andy Cohen announced that he was upgrading his title from silver fox to daddy…but the real kind with a kid and everything. The Bravo host is expecting a baby boy via surrogate any day now, so naturally he was given a baby shower. Kyle Richards and fellow “OG” housewives Nene Leakes, Ramona Singer, Vicki Gunvalson and Teresa Giudice gathered up all of the current Real Housewives and hosted A Star Is Born themed shower for the man that made them famous. Look at how epic this group looks!

Upon closer inspection, there are a few notable absentees from the group…Where is The Real Housewives Of New York OG Bethenny Frankel?!?

And what about her big city cast-mate, Luann De Lesseps?!

I mean John Mayer was lurking in the background for some reason…

But where was the life-of-the-party, The Real Housewives Of Orange County star Kelly Dodd?!

For the love of all things holy, where was the royal mother herself, Lisa Vanderpump…oh we actually know where she was. Van Der Pump told Page Six that she was working on her new Las Vegas lounge, “Vanderpump Cocktail Garden.” Fine, I’ll accept that answer.

One housewife I did not expect to see at this gathering was ex-The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks. After getting the boot from the series nearly two seasons ago, I was shocked to see her amongst the group. Maybe she snuck her way in since she knew Kandi Burruss would be too busy filming Celebrity Big Brother? Ooh she doesn’t like my hypothesis, look at that side eye!

Of course social media has been flooded with theories and conspiracies as to why some of the housewives were absent from such a major event. Are there cast changes in the works? Is Phaedra coming back? Will Andy name his son Bravo?! I personally think the world could use a Bravo Cohen.
