Facebook may be downgrading publisher content in newsfeeds but this isn’t dissuading publisher and linear TV networks, who are moving full steam ahead in producing original content for Facebook Live.



Season 7 of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey returns this Sunday, and stars of the show will be participating in a Facebook Live special event. The multi-camera, digital lviestream will be hosted by The People’s Couch stars Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard and will feature show cast members Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice.

The Live event will start 15 minutes ahead of the premiere with Goldman and Howard recapping Season 6 and teasing moments from Season 7.

The stream will continue during the episode as a second screen complement. Goldman and Howard will watch with fans and provide commentary on the episode. Then, following the episode, Gorga and Giudice will participate in a 30-minute chat, reacting to the episode and answering fan questions.

The special will be available via the Facebook page and on bravotv.com.
