Pageant Wives Get Brutally Blunt on Bravo's 'Game of Crowns' (Video)

Bravo's latest addicting docu-series Game of Crowns focuses on pageant wives competing on the "Mrs." circuit, and in this new brand-new clip from the premiere episode, drama abounds between pageant winners Shelley Carbone (Mrs. America 2011), Vanassa Sebastian (Mrs. Connecticut America 2012) and Lori-Ann Marchese (Mrs. Connecticut America 2013) over Lori-Ann's gaudy fitness bikini costume.
When Lori-Ann asks for Vanassa and Shelley's professional advice as she prepares for the Mrs. America pageant, she gets much more than she bargained for when the ladies get brutally honest with her.
As Lori-Ann steps out in a bedazzled red ensemble she intends to use for the fitness bathing suit part of the competition, the reactions she gets from the ladies are far from kind.
"Ummm, no," Vanassa says bluntly. "What the F? Seriously?! ... Lori-Ann doesn't display the sophistication that Mrs. America needs to have."
"Really? It looks like a stripper outfit," Shelley adds. "There's nothing to take off."
Check out the video to hear Lori-Ann's reaction to the less than constructive criticism.
Game of Crowns -- which focuses on the pageant wives' highly unusual lives revolving around glamour, perfection and winning at any cost -- premieres Sunday, July 13 at 9:15 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
