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.
Andy tells a story about how the was the host at the big Parson’s benefit in NYC and wore a fugly mint colored suit, only to arrive and discover it was black tie. Click here to see the suit on GQ where they had this to say, ” Cohen’s pastel linen number, worn to the 2016 Parsons Benefit last night in New York City, was aggressively pastel—like a Smartie or a Jordan almond. And his tie, like a barber-shop pole, didn’t help steer the look away from those old-timey candy-shop vibes. Add in the generous break in Cohen’s pants and some scuffed-up brown wingtips and the look just doesn’t add up to the kinds of A+ tailored kits we’re used to seeing from the multi-hyphenate Bravo mastermind.” Oh the shade.
They did one of Andy’s cheesy skits with guest Susan Lucci and I don’t think I was even told when Devious Maids premieres which was why she was there. Great campy summer show by the way. Very soapy.
In the cooking segment the lady actually says to Andy she wants him to be “the meat fondler” so at least he was well qualified for that. I also must point out that Kelly’s dress was the ugliest contraption I have ever seen in all the 25 years she has been on TV. And normally love her wardrobe.
Andy has too much going on to be the permanent host and he is not a morning person. Anderson Cooper on the other hand seems to really want the job. I think he would be great and Kelly would push for him. The latest rumors indicate that the brass is very interested in Rob Lowe who has no current gig after his last show ended. I used to love Rob Lowe but I don’t see him for this. He’s become a bit “Mario Lopez” if that makes any sense.
Anyway you can tune in tomorrow to see if their buzzes wear off for the second taping. Who do you think should be Kelly’s new co-host?
