Andy Cohen is pretty much everywhere these days while out pimping his new book, The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Life. Apparently that includes NPR! Here is an excerpt of his time on the show, Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me! Click this link to listen to the ten minute interview or read the entire transcript. The have Andy play their own game in which it is revealed is not just an expert on house wives, but house flies as well. The excerpt begins below. I’ve bolded the most amusing parts. :)
PETER SAGAL, HOST:
And now the game where we take somebody who is fabulous and expose him to the opposite. It is called Not My Job. Any Cohen started out as a producer with CBS News doing tough stories from tough places, but his secret dream was to choreograph elaborate catfights between wealthy underemployed women. He is the Bravo TV producer responsible for the “Real Housewives” franchise and he is the host of the nightly live talk show on Bravo “Watch What Happens Live.” Andy Cohen, welcome to WAIT WAIT …DON’T TELL ME.
ANDY COHEN: I am so happy to be here.
(APPLAUSE) Continue reading
People magazine announced their Sexiest Man Alive for 2014 yesterday and the tiara went to Chris Hemsworth. But never fear, Andy Cohen made the list and it’s an honor just to be nominated or something!
Andy tells Bravo’s The Dish, “I am shocked and amazed they asked me to be in the mag, but then I realized it was because of my hot dog—and it made sense. I’m OK with that! Wacha deserves to be in there! “ Andy said the shoot was done in his apartment and it involved a crew of 15 people packing into the bedroom he shares with Wacha. He admits, “Despite what you may have heard, that was a record. It felt very not-hot trying to look hot in bed, but when Wacha fell asleep in my arms I knew they were getting something good.”
Andy was asked who would be on his sexiest man list of Bravo men. I found his choices quite interesting. Andy chose, “Derek (Fredrik Eklund’s husband), Hugh Acheson, Apollo Nida, Mauricio Umansky, and Kelley from Below Deck!” He must be going by dick size or something. If Hugh Acheson showed up in a public space where I was, I’d leave. In fact that holds true for all of them except Derek. How the hell did Derek get lumped in with these sleazeballs?
Who would your top three sexiest men on Bravo be? (excluding Andy if he were an option). Continue reading
Really? Has it come to this? The thirst is real y’all. Y’all know I am obsessed with the seating order. For the record, Camille got first chair followed by Adrienne and then Taylor. The drinking word is Brandi. Let’s hope they say it zero times. The game was Hot Po-Titties where they had to try to say something nice about Brandi. It did not go well. Someone commented today in a post simply, “Ho Po-titties” I was reading via email and was like, WTF? Now I get it. Brandi tweeted assuming we all care about her situation with these three. She said she is great with Camille, she’s working on it with Adrienne and she is indifferent to Taylor.
Click through for my assessment of the three. Continue reading
I am pissed that Andy tacked this on to the show AGAIN so that Good Wife won’t record when I already had it recording in its normal timeslot. So annoying. I decided to go ahead and watch it now because I love Kenya and Sherri and I hope the throw some shade at Nene because I don’t think Sherri likes her either.
OMG Kenya’s dress is very dramatic! That is BEYOND a plunging neckline. For some reason, Zach and Cody from Big Brother 16 are the bartenders tonight. I would point out why but I already have the Jews in an uproar in another comment section. So let’s go with they just got lucky, shall we? Zach says he a Frankie are best friends.
Wow I was wrong about Sherri and Kenya having common ground. Andy brings up the assault on Kenya at the reunion. He talks about Kandi’s comments on the show. Then Sherri says that all of the women on The View, she lists herself and Whoopi and all of them as a collection. She says they are all black women. I imagine Jenni McCarthy and whoever else was on the show at that time will be shocked to know they are black. Kenya says that Sherri’s position is that if someone is irritating you it is okay for you to assault them. She will never agree with that thought process. Sherri says, “How about don’t be irritating?” And Kenya kindly points out that is what happens at the reunion. She was irritated that Phaedra kept calling her a whore. She was irritated when groups of them ganged up on her. But she did not assault anyone. By the way, Kenya is trained in one of the martial arts and could quite easily defend herself if she had chosen to do so.
Andy plays a long clip of Nene’s odd antics from last week’s WWHL. I totally missed the part where she said that half the girls went to see Sherri in her Broadway performance instead of waiting to see Nene. That’s hysterical. Kenya came for opening night and Phaedra came another night. She probably took Ayden when she was in New York right after the Ellen Show. Continue reading
Andy Cohen was in Atlanta for two appearances yesterday to promote his new book. The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look At A Shallow Year. And a Tamara Tattles Spy was sitting front and center taking copious notes! According to my spy, let’s call her “Queenie,” Andy looks a lot smaller and thinner and better looking in person. She said he was very nice to everyone and quite entertaining.
Queenie and I discussed questions before she went and she was hoping to get some tea who his most disappointing guest was. I told her it was Scott Baio. She decided to double-check. Queenie says, “I was seated in the third row so very close. I asked him who was his most disappointing interview and why. He said ” ugh.. I don’t know” he acted like he hadn’t been “disappointed” but I think he may just always put a positive spin on things. So I said “Scott Baio?” And he said ” yeah ya know I always really liked him. Then I ended up getting in a twitter war with his wife and …” This is the part where I point out I am always right.

It looks like we are going to keep making RHOA a success. I blame you people for this news.
NEW YORK – November 11, 2014 – Bravo Media delivers record ratings as “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” earned the network’s highest-rated season premiere ever with over 3.8 million total viewers and over 2.2 million P18-49, according to Nielsen. Additionally, the episode marked double-digit growth, up 23 percent among total viewers and 24 percent among P18-49 from the prior season premiere (11/3/13). Driven by Sunday night’s season seven premiere, Bravo was the #1 cable network during the 8pm hour among all key demos. Immediately following at 9pm, “Watch What Happens Live,” hosted by Andy Cohen with guest NeNe Leakes, delivered 2.6 million total viewers and 1.4 million P18-49. (Because they piggy backed it onto RHOA! FAKE NUMBERS!)
Bravo was the #1 most social reality network in prime with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” being the #1 most social reality program of the night with 171,000 tweets. This marked Bravo’s most social season premiere since Nielsen SocialGuide began tracking social activity in October 2011.
Nene is in NYC so obviously she is going to swing by and see her BFF, Andrew. We have to look forward to that interaction on Sunday! There will be some actual celebrities on this week as well. Tonight, we have Martin Short and Lisa Kudrow. That should be funny. Megan Mullally is coming up. I saw her on a talk show recently and did not recognize her at all. Even after being told who she was, I just could not see Karen (? Was that her name?) from Will and Grace anywhere at all. Not even a trace in her voice. I’ll probably tune in for that. Angelica Huston might be worth a watch.

Ut oh. The folks over at Bravo are not going to like this. Bravo has exactly two shows they can point to as quality programming. Inside the Actor’s Studio, and Top Chef. Top Chef was nominated at the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Cinematography for Reality Programming and Outstanding Reality-Competition Program for its second season. Top Chef won the award for Outstanding Editing in a Reality Series at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards. Top Chef won the award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards, defeating The Amazing Race which had won the award every year since the category’s inception in 2003. This show is Andy Cohen’s baby.
This season, there is a guy on the show named Aaron Grissom and he is a total asshole with no exceptional cooking ability in my opinion. He’s been a total prick to most everyone on the show, especially a blonde female and a Hispanic male chef. He’s just a douchebag. On last night’s show he was on a team with the Hispanic guy and the front-runner of the show who carried him to a win. He was cocky and annoying but the front runner has a great personality and a rapport with everyone on the show and was able to keep a lid on him for the most part. Continue reading
I started this post earlier and was too tired to really delve into things. But I keep getting more and more information about what is actually going on so I am going to give you the shorter version because I have some things to take care of today (Thursday). Back in July of 2013, there was a lot of speculation here about the ring that Andy has worn every day since June 26, 2013 on his right ring finger (many gay married me wear their wedding rings on that finger). At that time, Andy had been traveling a lot with his friend Sean Avery. There was a lot of discussion here about the two of them being more than friends. The ring showing up at the same time they seemed to be doing a LOT of traveling together made everyone a bit suspicious. Sure, Sean was a big bad hockey player. While playing hockey he was accused of mocking another hockey player for having a lisp. He also made derogatory comments about other players dating his sloppy seconds. After a rocky breakup from his hockey career he announced his retirement in 2012 on Watch What Happens Live. Avery continued to date models and supposedly had a model girlfriend, Hilary Rhoda, who was never on any of these trips with Andy, allegedly. Avery is very into fashion, much like Kanye West, and even “interned at Vogue.” He has done some modeling of his own. He is a vocal advocate of gay marriage. Continue reading

Here are the latest updates to the WWHL Schedule. I like Michael J. Fox. He’s such an inspiration and still funny! And of course Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts and Sarah Paulson will be awesome. Martin Short and Lisa Kudrow should be hysterical. Continue reading
I feel like I am being forced to watch this stupid show. Andy tries to break the mood with a montage of Milania and Gia modeling. Andy is borderline disturbing with his obsession with those girls.
Andy plays a montage about Teressa being a bitch about Teresa’s sentencing and Rino is in the audience screaming and clapping that he loves that Teressa was a bitch. Andy says twitter is blowing up about it. Teressa said she apologized to Teresa and they are in a good place now. Andy says she saw that clip for the first time on the reunion. Andy says the twins were crazy for pushing Teresa’s buttons by calling her stupid. That is the Gorga switch for violence. Rino continues to shout out answers and Andy is already pissed with Rino because he won’t stop screaming out thing in the audience.
Andy has the certified results of the lie detector test Victoria Gotti took to prove she was telling the truth. She passed it. Teresa says. “I’m a housewife, she’s a has been.” Nicole says Victoria lied about having cancer. She will say anything for attention and then she says, “Bye Felicia, beeeep!” apparently trying and failing to channel Nene.
Tamar is pretending to be appalled by the twins and asked Andy where he found them. Really, Tamar? You are way worse than those two. Continue reading
Andy Cohen has some interesting bedfellows coming up on Watch What Happens Live. Someone is going to need to explain to me how the decision to add Tamar Braxton to a show with the Real Housewives of New Jersey twins happens. Will she weigh in on Victoria Gotti? Will they talk about the differences between having a lot of sisters and being twins? What will the drinking game be? Seriously, it looks like she was added to the mix after the fact when there are open slots available. Why?
Who is up for tuning in to figure out how Gretchen and Slade ended up on tonight’s show? How do these two manage to weasel themselves into the public eye at every turn?
