Real Housewives Of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice poses with Melissa Gorga and Andy Cohen at the BravoCon opening night event

It's an unprecedented event in reality TV history, and it kicked off Friday night in New York City.

BravoCon, the first ever convention for all the biggest stars from the network behind the Real Housewives empire and so many other famous reality shows, welcomed a whole hoard of Housewives and more at the Hammerstein Ballroom in downtown Manhattan. 

Notable attendees included Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice, who posed with her cast mate Melissa Gorga and Bravo host extraordinaire, Andy Cohen.

Teresa, whose legal and family troubles along with those of her husband Joe have been front and center on this season of RHONJ, wore a textured print wrap dress for the evening, paired with black suede thigh-highs.

She let tendrils of her highlighted hair cascade down in front of one shoulder.

Melissa was in a not entirely different look, in sparkly striped mini dress with long sleeves.

Gorga also wore her ombre hair down, and showed off her legs by wearing high heeled black sandals.

Cohen, the perennial MC and host of What What Happens Live, kept it chic and simple in an all-black ensemble of suit, shirt and tie.

Adding a veritable pop of color were two of the biggest names from the Real Housewives universe, Lisa Rinna and Denise Richards of the Beverly Hills chapter.

Lisa was in a neon yellow long-sleeved bodycon midi dress, and she sported a long braid.

Denise was in a sexy magenta button-down leather blazer dress, which featured artful ruching and showcased the former Bond girl's shapely legs.

Joining Lisa for photos was her RHOBH cast mate Erika Girardi, or Erika Jayne, who was also in a magenta and pink getup - a shiny satin two-tone shirt dress that featured her initials on the collar and the words 'pretty mess' (Erika's book title) running down the front.

She completed the statement look with metallic gold knee-high boots.

Another Beverly Hills Housewife smiled alongside Denise — none other than Dorit Kemsley, who sparkled in a sequinned LBD with long sleeves, which she paired with matching ankle boots.

And rounding out the Beverly Hills Housewives guest list was scream queen Kyle Richards, in a sparkly textured green robe dress.

Moving just south on the Housewives map to the OC, several faces from the Real Housewives of Orange County were in tow at BravoCon as well: Gina Kirschenheiter, in a cute sequinned black and silver dress, and Emily Simpson in a busty hunter green gown with overlarge sleeves.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke was also there, in yet another textured metallic piece — a silver one-shouldered mini dress. 

Last but certainly not least was RHOC's Kelly Dodd, in a strapless white two-piece ensemble, who was certainly not shy about showing off her new engagement ring from Fox News senior correspondent Rick Leventhal. 

Representing the east coast was Real Housewife of New York City Ramona Singer, who took metallics in a golden direction with a sleeveless column midi dress with a cutout at the chest.

On team Potomac came Real Housewives of Potomac's Gizelle Bryant, in a bright green pleated pant dress, and Ashley Darby, in a subtly rock n' roll white blazer dress with metallic silver belt. 

Southern Charm's Cameran Eubanks wore a charming and eye-popping multicolored graphic print dress, and she was joined by a dapper Craig Conover in a grey plaid double-breasted suit.
