Farrell’s stayed busy over the last year, helping keep Bravo a top 10 cable network. Specifically, she oversaw the third season of “Southern Charm,” which wrapped in July and marked the show’s highest-rated in series history. Additionally, Farrell worked on the season seven return of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Away from work, Farrell lends her time to Southern Poverty Law Center. “The SPLC is a nonprofit organization that combats hate, intolerance and discrimination through education and litigation,” she says.

What television show/s – cable or broadcast – best embrace diversity?
I’m very proud of the diverse shows on Bravo (“Shahs of Sunset,” “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Thicker Than Water”). Bravo shows portray diverse communities without judgment and celebrates the good, the bad, and the ugly no matter the audience they are documenting. In other words, these shows reveal a full picture not just romanticized or stereotypical characters that can be seen elsewhere.  Bravo is one of the few outlets that isn’t afraid to let people be who they are and by doing so allows them to show their humanity.

My personal election campaign slogan would be…
Work harder, be better!

Favorite charity organization you work with?
I’ve been a supporter of the Southern Poverty Law Center for many years now. The SPLC is a non-profit organization that combats hate, intolerance and discrimination through education and litigation.
