Former ‘RHONJ’ Executive Producer Dorothy Toran Launches New Production Company
Dorothy Toran, the former Executive Producer on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has announced a new production company following her departure from the Bravo hit.
According to a report from Deadline, Dorothy spent six years working on RHONJ with Sirens Media before departing to launch her own company. The new company, named Lauren Grace Media, will focus on developing non-fiction and scripted series.
Dorothy is joined by Leslie Farrell, the former vice president of production at NBC Universal, the company that owns Bravo. Leslie will be a Senior Vice President of Development in addition to becoming an Executive Producer.

This new production company will differ from The Real Housewives in that it aims to show a more diverse group of people in reality TV. Announced shows include Amplified, which is about a group of African American women based in Atlanta, Georgia who are all amputees, Born Yesterday, which will focus on “the world of firsts” for babies aged 0-18 months, Phantom Crown, which is a thriller based on a novel and Brick City Kings, which will follow the dating lives and friendships of five Black gay men in Newark, New Jersey.
RHONJ Season 11
With Dorothy leaving Sirens Media, fans should expect some changes to the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. After a rather lackluster reunion, it is clear that the show needs to make some changes in order to remain just as entertaining and juicy as it has always been.

RHONJ stars Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider, Dolores Catania, and Jennifer Aydin. After appearing on the show since season 1, Danielle Staub announced that she will not be returning to the show with the current cast.
As previously reported, season 11 of the show has been put on hold as Bravo has suspended production on most shows due to the coronavirus outbreak.
