[via press release from Bravo]


NEW YORK - July 24, 2013 - Hold on to your sashes! Bravo Media greenlights "Game of Crowns (working title)," a docu-series that follows six pageant wives whose lives revolve around glamour, perfection and winning at any cost - even if it means competing against their own teenage daughters! These wives and mothers live like royalty with wealthy husbands, grand homes and couture gowns, but they are not satisfied without a title and a crown to top it off. From trophy wives to pageant moms, these ultra-competitive ladies share their love of the game and will stop at nothing to win local and national pageants for beauty queen status. In this world of boobs, botox and butt glue, the women pay top dollar for perfection at any price.

Throughout the season, the ladies will compete to snatch the spotlight while viewers watch their intense preparation that includes obsessing over the perfect swimsuit, working tirelessly with trainers and honing their interview skills with coaches - all while being dedicated mothers and wives. How will the women settle their scores both on the stage and off?

Meet the cast:

Susanna Paliotta, Mrs. Nation USA 2013 and Mrs. Massachusetts Perfect Woman, is a pageant mom to her two daughters as well as a participant.

Shelley Carbone, a wholesome mother of four, won the title of Mrs. Connecticut 2010 before going on to win the title of Mrs. America 2011.

Lynne Diamante, who has a law degree and runs a multi-million dollar eyewear company, is a pageant lifer who was crowned Mrs. Rhode Island 20 years after winning Miss Rhode Island.

Vanassa Sebastian, whose marriage into a casino dynasty funds her pageant addiction, was Mrs. Connecticut 2012.

Leha Guilmette, Mrs. Rhode Island 2013, is currently preparing for the 2013 Mrs. America Pageant.

Lori-Ann Marchese, who holds the title of Mrs. Connecticut 2013, will face-off against Leha in the 2013 Mrs. America Pageant.

"Game of Crowns" (working title) is produced by Shed Media US for Bravo. Pamela Healey and Lisa Shannon serve as Executive Producers.
