Real Housewives’ equipment stolen

The show was being filmed at the Pierre Hotel, where several of the stars, including Alex McCord, Simon van Kempen and Kelly Bensimon, were enjoying a party.

But while the Bravo TV crew was out shooting the show, thieves targeted their van, which was parked nearby, stealing $30,000 (£20,000) worth of equipment, according to New York Post gossip column PageSix.

A source tells the newspaper, “The van was parked right outside the Pierre near the ballroom entrance. Thieves broke the lock and stole a bunch of camera equipment and crew wallets.”

A spokesperson for Bravo confirmed the theft, adding, “Two long lenses, tripods and a couple of crew bags were stolen. About $30,000 worth of equipment. A police report and insurance claims have been filed.”
