Wow, Andy Cohen is not pussy footing around his BFF, Bethenny. I figured this whole show would be a waste of time (lol, like the other shit we watch isn’t) with Andy doing his usual genuflecting and sucking up but right off the bat he says that she is returning to the housewives on the heels of two big failures, her marriage and her talk show. That seems kind of unnecessary, but hopefully it means he will ask some good questions.
Bethenny says that she really can’t talk about the talk show being a negative experience because it would make her seem ungrateful for the experience and she is not. She says she didn’t enjoy being a talk show host. That seems like an odd statement I hope he follows up on. Bethenny says everyone wants a talk show, and everyone thinks it is so easy. She says particularly “housewives” want a talk show and it’s not easy.
Wow. Bethenny and Jason are STILL not divorced. Bethenny doesn’t answer the question about where she lives because she can’t say she doesn’t live in the apartment with Jason because that would allow Jason to say that Bethenny has abandoned her residence. I had heard that Bethenny had purchased an apartment near to the one she technically shares with Jason just to have a place to go. However, it seems that she has to overnight in her place with Jason occasionally for legal reasons. Bethenny says we will see her living situation play out on the show. Continue reading
I don’t understand why Brandi is there. They could have had someone from Southern Charm. Or anyone else on the planet for that matter. Oh Andy says it’s because the RHOBH finale is tomorrow. Andy asks Brandi if she has ever met Mike. She replies that Mike just tried to have sex with her in the back. Mike says, “Believe me, you and Golnesa would say yes.” Frankly, I’m surprised Brandi has not already offered. But we are only 30 seconds in. Brandi says she watched all the Shah’s shows on the plane over.
Andy asks her about the mask she Tweeted herself wearing on the plane and she acted like she did not want to discuss it because she was not being paid. #SMH She seems to think she is Oprah Winfrey or someone. So I googled and it’s an “illumask” a $30 product from Ulta Beauty Supply that is a light therapy treatment for acne and acne scars. When Andy asks if it does something to your skin, she says, “Yes, it’s for helping you sleep!” Oh Brandi. You have never been a good liar.
Brandi has new hair. It’s longer and less hay like. During the first game Brandi points out that she thinks Kenya and Apollo worked together on that whole storyline about them trying to get with each other. She bases this on the fact that Apollo is just too dumb. Well, she’s right about that part at least.
Andy is being nice to Brandi. #cuts
Andy plays a clip from the reunion where he says to Brandi, ” Sometimes you are playing and you just take it a step too far.” Brandi responds with “No, that’s bullshit. I’ve taken enough abuse since I have been here, I’m not taking it from you too.” Andy says that Brandi was really pissed at him over that comment. Um, really? That was your super mean girl move with Brandi, Andrew? That has been said by pretty much every sane person who watches the show for several seasons now. Oh God. Brandi says she leaves the reunion feeling vindicated. I am starting to want to cut. I’ve never been a cutter before, but this seems like a good time to start because YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! This is like when my ex tells me he is going to get counseling for his anger problems toward all the multitudes of women in his life (including a wife, btw) and he swears the therapist told him he was too selfless and needed to be more concerned with his own happiness and should try and find a new girl friend (to add to the list?). One can only hope that both Brandi and the ex are equally delusional about what happened at the reunion, and individual therapy respectively. Continue reading
On Ask Andy recently, he was asked what is going on with him and Kathy Griffin. Did they have a falling out? She is never on WWHL anymore and there have been no new specials.
Andy gives a weird sigh of disinterest and says, ” Yeah I know. (pause) Did we have a falling out? Not that I know of. (dumb Andy face) Although you never know. /shrug
The chick says “It’s true you never know with her she could be hating on you right now…”
Andy, “I’m sure she is, maybe she hates me… you never know.” He’s chewing gum. Why does he do that? What is with Americans and their gum?
On WWHL, with Ellen Barkin and Anderson Cooper, Andy seems to announce that Cooper is a bottom, which I am not sure has ever been verified before. This is a show that Cohen called his besties in for because someone cancelled last minute. It’s like three best friends getting drunk on TV. Anyway, this is not a show I would normally recap, although it is good, but I think the topic of Kathy Griffin is going to come up. And I want to know what is going on with Andy and Kathy, because it seems that AC still loves Kathy, but Cohen perhaps not so much. LOL someone just checked Andy for only giving bathrobes to his favorites. It’s so true, I can’t believe he read that. Continue reading
God I love this job! So much fun!
Andy Cohen has wasted no time in getting a one on one with Bethenny Frankel for WWHL. It’s already been filmed and will air on Sunday. I’m sure you can barely contain your excitement.
Monday’s show really ups the creep factor with two of the biggest walking STDs in Beverly Hills. Allegedly. Kyle is right back on the media tour. She really must have something to prove.
Click through for the whole list. Continue reading
I do not get the sudden trend of wearing winter white. While winter white has always had its place, simply wearing white in winter is not winter white. Also when it is a rainy slushy mess outside, it’s not the time for winter white. Nevertheless, both Cynthia Bailey and Melissa Gorga wore white in some sort of attempt to rush spring 2015.
The fanboy bartender dissed Nene Leakes for not greeting her fans outside the door after Cinderella. Then Andy shows a still of the Bride of Frankenstein wig Nene wears next week. He asks for Cynthia’s thoughts. She says, “Bye, Wig.” Indeed, Cynthia, indeed.
Andy mentions Sheree on Millionaire Matchmaker and he plays a clip of her most obnoxious moments. Andy snickers and says he loves Sheree so much. I was totally expecting him to tsk and call her “sweetie.”
Andy asks Cynthia why she told Phaedra about the Mr. Chocolate thing. Cynthia said if the roles were reversed she would want Phaedra to give her the information. She was not intending to be accusatory, she was just providing information.
Andy asks about burning the friend contract. Cynthia laughs and says that was a bit dramatic. Continue reading
I started this post writing about what is wrong with Real Housewives of Atlanta and how it has jumped the shark. I thought about how it could be fixed. How to save the franchise. I thought about how to make it more interesting, ways to make it better. But, very quickly in, I was reminded that we shouldn’t be watching this crap at all. Seriously. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? But first, here is what I thought we should do back when I was still drinking the Kool-Aid. At the end I will link you back to my thoughts three years ago, before the crazy came.
There are too many women on this show. I have said this forever, when there are more than five housewives, it’s hard to get into any of their storylines. Hell, we don’t even notice anymore when Nene is not on at all.
There is was too much recapping of the previous episode. We get it the wives told their husband about the previous week’s forced dinner where someone was a cunt. The wives who weren’t in some scenes the previous week were filled in on what happened. We don’t need the first 25% of the show to be a recap. That’s what I am for. Continue reading

Well this should be an action packed show! I could do without Derek and Lawrence on this show since they are both SO over the top. They would be better being on with Kandi or someone boring. I have a feeling this is going to be like three cats fighting in a burlap bag, which is coincidentally what my ass looks like in khakis these days.
In the introductions, Andy says to say that she got a rise out of one of her fellow Atlanta housewives tonight would be putting it midly. Kenya looks great in orange. I love that she has on orange lipstick but not hideous neon lipstick, just a nice lovely shade to match her dress.
Andy asks Miss Lawrence about Phaedra’s comments about Nene calling to check on her every day. He says everyone needs friends. Andy asked Kenya if it surprised her. She said no, it seems they have a bit of friendship going on, if it is by default or whatever, they seem to have something going on. Andy says that Porsha threw shade at Kenya and plays the clip of Porsha making fun of flirting with the waiter. Kenya says that it’s sad. She was being friendly to the waiter. Being friendly to the staff doesn’t mean that you are flirting with them. And shame to the people who think that was flirting. Shame to me I guess then. It was definitely flirting. We’ve been over this a thousand times. Kenya would flirt with a mop bucket it you drew eyes and a moustache on it. And that’s fine! That’s part of her perky personality. Who cares? Continue reading
Lisa tweeted before the show began that she was full of piss and vinegar. So that gives me hope this might be a good show. Also, Lisa was photographed being carried over a snow bank into the building to film. It’s all over the tabloids today. This Morning Wendy Williams threw some shade at Andy by putting up the picture saying Lisa was in town “for something.” She went on to point out that Lisa was wearing heels and no coat and if she was local she would know to wear her Uggs inside and then change shoes. I guess this feud has NOT been put to rest. Um, why would someone from L.A. need Uggs? Side note: Don’t you hate when Californians wear Uggs and scarves and knit hats in summer with shorts? What is up with that? I bet those knit hats hold in their hippie smells (patchouli and weed). Ew. Just EW.
Okay my stupid Charter DVR needs like a rest between taping shows so if you tape two things at 10 pm then whatever you tape at 11 is “clipped.” Because, Charter. So I missed the first minute but the deal is that it is Dakota Fanning’s 21st Birthday and for some reason at the bar there is both an ice sculpture of Giggy and some sort of Frat boy theme with a topless male bartender and jello shots. It’s basically something out of one of Andy Cohen’s wet dreams.
Holy Shit! Dakota is in the first chair. Let’s hope it is because it’s her birthday and not Andy throwing shade. Continue reading
My DVR has been cutting things off lately so this show is starting with the introductions missing. I am already displeased. I really hate Andy and Lisa Vanderpump together the just ramp each other up on the shade. Andy goes right to the clip about Kristen getting fired and Lisa just can’t agree enough about the kitchen celebration. Eventually, the move on to Lisa talking about how horrible Stassi’s critique of the wedding was.
On to RHOBH… Andy seem to always fully invest in the storylines. He really speaks as if he believes everything on the show. Like Brandi doing a 21 day cleanse. Even Lisa’s subtle hints of “more like 21 minutes” cause Andy to insist she did the whole three weeks.
Andy asked her what she though about Lisa and Eileen’s attempts to address the problem with Kim. Lisa says she was trying to steer clear of the whole thing. Lisa said that when she asked Kim in Paris if she had taken a sleeping pill she was met with hostility. Also, she was not at the poker party so she didn’t see for herself what had really happened. Lisa says they are coming from a place of love, but they are headed for trouble. Continue reading
Tonight on WWHL we have Lisa Vanderpump all by her lonesome. Next Sunday is the Oscars so we will have no RHOA or WWHL. Check out the rest of the guests below and let me know who sounds interesting to you. Continue reading
Andy starts by asking how Todd is doing since Sharon passed. Kandi says that he is holding up. Kaela is with them and he has his family to be strong for. Andy says that “Riley is 11″ was trending on Twitter. Kandi seemed a bit defense saying she acts age appropriate and she can’t help that she is tall. Kandi seems oblivious to the fact that the issue was with an 11 (now 12) year old wearing the hair of three Filipino women on her head. Kandi seemed touchy about the whole thing. In his opening Andy also made a comment that Kandi’s mother will beat you with her shoe and you could hear Kandi groan. Kandi is just sort of disagreeable tonight.
Andy brings up that Todd was not overly excited about the car. Kandi says she was disappointed and though that someone must have tipped him off. Todd is at the clubhouse somewhere. Andy asked if Kandi was made at him. She says no, she just thought that whole scene was messy. I guess she means the car scene.
Andy plays the sperm count scene as a sitcom with a laugh track. Because that was just ridiculous.
We have someone from RHOA, Vanderpump Rules and RHOBH appearing on WWHL this week. Who are you hoping to see on the show following the next episodes? Only one of my choices made the cut. :( I’ll be watching them anyway of course.
Click through to see who will be hanging with Andy during his last week of sober January and tell me who you will be tuning in for… Continue reading
