I have been waiting for this Bethenny Frankel interview since we found out she was coming on last week. Not because I care about any of the shit coming out of Bethenny’s mouth but because there has been a deep rift between Wendy and Bethenny ever since Bethenny stole a few key members from Wendy’s staff when she got ready to start her own show. This also is the reason she stopped covering the housewives and had a falling out with Andy Cohen. You really do need to read that link to understand this post.
So Wendy comes out right away mentioning that Bethenny is going to be on the show. She says ” So Bethenny Frankel is here today. (Big applause from audience. HUGE. Like Bethenny bought the tickets and hired the audience loud.) So I must say I was out of watching the OC housewives and I was also out of watching the New York housewives because there was nothing that was really exciting to me. And then all the sudden the OC became exciting because you know, some of those casts of characters went off the rails (it’s obvious she has no idea who is even on the show) which is always fun to watch and then in New York, Bethenny is back and she made for good TV! So I can’t wait to talk to her about the housewives, her divorce…he’s finally signed the papers!…and her new life with her new man, Dennis.”
Okay that is some happy horseshit right there. These two women hate each other. And the audience is really odd today. We can see the clapping every time she says “Bethenny” and they sound super loud, but when they show the audience their faces don’t match the enthusiasm of the large crowd. This is all so suspicious to me already. What is going on?
Andy has stopped posting pictures of the guests in time for bloggers to pull prior to air time. So now we get these fugly composites. One more irksome thing to add to the list about Andy. Wait, Sammy from Jersey Shore is a bartending with some other girl and they both co-host Siggy’s relationship show? Oh. I see now. This explains why the extent of Siggy’s relationship advice is the old adage about marriage being like a car you have to keep filled with gas. It’s all starting to make sense now.
Well the stupid composite is huge and I am not worth my time to resize so I’m just going with a Caroline photo. Of course Andy brings up the shade that Caroline threw at Teresa tonight. Siggy covers her ears and makes a super annoying screeching sound after that. Andy basically has to tell her to stop. Andy mentions that Amy Schumer paid Caroline a compliment in her new book.
The poll question tonight is whose side are you on, Teresa’s of Kathy and Rosie? Obviously, Caroline loves Kathy and Rosie and says they are good people and she hopes that Teresa will realize that sometimes people get upset and say things they don’t mean and she hopes Teresa grows up and mends fences.
This is really stupid and I can’t believe I am going to watch this, but I thought y’all might like a place to comment. Did I mention how dumb this is?
Gia is the Miss Bravo. Jenni Pulos hosts the west coast event with all the west coast Bravolebs.
Don’t Call It A Comeback Award
Craig Conover, Teresa Giudice, Stassi Schroeder, Sheree Whitfiel or Satan. The winner was Satan. Or the Felon. It might have been the Felon by Bravo.
Remember this walk off video of the felon? Their next question was going to be about Heather Dubrow. Andy brings this up and Teresa blows it off. Anyone know what Heather said?
The Bravo Bro Award
James Kennedy, Pol Pot, Ben Robinson, Shep Rose, and Jax Taylor.
Jax narrowly beats out Pol Pot. James was played by a Amy Phillips. I think James is off the show.
Contour De Force
Erika Jayne, Katheryn Dennis, Ru Paul, Lala Kent, Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore.
If there was a winner, I missed it
I really don’t want to recap this but I just want to post to say how incredibly bad Andy Cohen was on Live With Kelly this morning. I wanted to post this early but the site is still settling in to the new server and they said to wait 24 hours before posting but, um, that is not possible.
So Andy is the host this week on Thursday and Friday because they are both filmed on Thursday. Both Kelly and Andy start by saying they had very late nights and partied too much the night before (separately) and kind of dragged in to work this morning. Well, clearly they took something. They were both way more spastic that usual. They are both trying WAY too hard. Andy cannot be the replacement host because it’s just too much over the top fakery and conjured perkiness. But today was bad. They were speed talking and shouty and way too over the top for me at 9 am. I was awake briefly and then went back to sleep.
Because Andy doesn’t get nearly as enough time to talk about himself on WWHL, his radio show, his tours with Anderson Cooper, his weekly “Ask Andy” online segments, His Then & Now shows, his Snap hat, Instagram, Twitter, constant periscoping or the aftershows, he is now getting his WWHL guests to interview him from time to time.
The interesting thing about this brief segment with Lisa is not about his desire to be swept off his feet, because I don’t see that happening. I firmly believe that you could remove Andy’s date for any event or dinner and swap them out with someone completely different and he would never notice the difference.
What is interesting to me is the fact he is still renovating his apartment. I actually have a source who is very familiar with his building who told me a couple of years ago at least that Andy had purchased the apartment next door to his and was going to open it up to be one large apartment.
I am gonna miss you, girl
Okay something tells me that there will be few secrets revealed and I am in a hurry to get to Shahs of Sunset that premieres tonight. So I am going to blow through this with a quickness.
Phaedra and Porsha want to give Kim a makeover. Who in the holy hell would want two THOTs to give you a makeover? I love Kim Fields looks. Except for that crappy silver dress for the opening scenes. Kim is way prettier than the Ps. I know the I am the only one, but I am going to miss Kim Fields. There. It feels good to admit it.
Cynthia and Mallory talk about Cynthia’s crappy marriage. ICYMI, CDAN posted a crazy blind about Peter hooking up with Porsha so I am looking at any hints by production that it happened because surely they would have caught wind of something like that, right? I think if it did happen it was early on in the SportsOne process and that is why Kordell is gone from that venture. Anyway, people are blowing me up on Twitter like this is my blind, and it is not. I am torn to pieces about whether to believe it or not so I just had to bring it to my people. It would explain some things. I’m just saying. Peter and Noelle got for a manipedi? Why? Noelle saw the video of Peter and that girl. Noelle says he looked sloppy. It’s clear that Peter lived in Charlotte except for filming. This is actually a good episode. Lots of new footage. Worth a watch.
I forgot about Porsha’s speech to high school kids. So disgusting. That principal got a lot of backlash. Who brings a THOT to a high school? She breaks into her preacher mode. But she is giving a speech about I dunno what. The audience shots are hysterical. She tries to have three steps and she LITERALLY cannot count to three.
