It is a slushfest in NYC this morning, and I have to run my ass all over town today so I am not pleased. I'm in the Today greenroom right now, waiting to go on with Kathie Lee and Hoda. After that I am heading to The View to be live with the ladies. And then my workday begins. Yowsa.
The weekend was really restful, and I got a lot of sleep and a lot of work done. As much as I love when people slam the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, I thought Ricky Gervais was un-funny and mean at the expense of the people in the room and it made me unconfortable watching him. The scientology/Travolta thing was weird and unnecessary.
After that show, I had a blast with Iman and Nene on Sunday night talking Globes fashion, Kim, and Calvin. And what about international rugby superstar hearthrob Ben Cohen stopping by?? Is he my long lost brother? No. Do I wish he was? Yes.
Our aftershow on Sunday night was killer, with more NeNe and Iman, and more Ben Cohen. Check it out, and hopefully I will see you on TV again!
omg...a little hypocritical. so it's ok to say these things behind someone's back but not in front of them. love ricky gervais and obviously others did too since they had pretty decent ratings. he is a comedian...why is it ok to make fun of other people but not movie and tv stars...r they so special? i like you because you are really fair...not this time!
Andy, I love how NeNe thinks she is sooo ladylike and above it all, apologizing to her children for fighting on tv, and then STICKS HER FINGER IN HER EAR AND DIGS AROUND while on camera. Classy! Kim rightly asked why NeNe brought her up to Jermaine Dupri, and Nene had no answer for her. She just kept saying 'I'm the interviewer' without giving an answer. Because Kim wouldn't back down, NeNe went ballistic.
Why do you let NeNe get away with things? A caller rightly asked why NeNe constantly exposes her breasts, and NeNe says 'look away'? Why not wear more clothing like the red dress she wore on WWHL? It looks much better on her than hootchie wear.
As far as Ricky Gervais... shhhh. many people didn't know who he was referring to as a Gay Scientologist. Don't tell! You'll give people a shock they may not recover from. Besides, I'm sure there's at least one other famous gay actor Scientologist around...
I love you Andy! You make me laugh even when it is not that funny. I love your expressions and dry humor...keep doing your thing!
Andy, I really like you alot, and even more now that you are being less politcal. Please keep the politics out of this great franchise and out of the clubhouse. It's where I go to get away from it. much love. oxoxo
oh and p.s. I hope you are beginning to realize just what trash Nene is and will give her less air time. She's no Bethenny. Now there is a real funny girl.
Here I am, I have been wanting to appear on a show!! tried out for game shows and nada..I enjoyed hearing about the Golden Globes, all he did was talk about the elephant in the room!! Get real people!! Just thought I'd drop you a note. Its a day off from prison for me, I work at Corcoran SATF, and its a show in itself daily!! I laugh the hardest and strongest when Im at work, and I always say, If I could bring a camera in this place I would have a hit!! Its totally opposite of what LOCKUP shows. We run a great Program and the inmates are amazing!!! So, since we will never meet, God bless and take care!! Just me......
Andy, I totally agree that Ricky Gervais was not funny in many cases and out and out mean in some. I'm so sick of people who say things to try to get a laugh at someone elses expense.Robert Downey made mistakes but he's back better than ever and he's a real talent who deserves respect.if Ricky hosts next year ,I won't be watching......I saw you with Hoda and Kathie Lee.....theres something going on with you and Kathie Lee ....care to commen? .I also saw you on the view.Loved you on both....No wonder you got where you got at Bravo.You are so great at what you do.....not to mention you're looking sooooooo good.love you!!!!!!
Andy - you don't want Ben as your brother. You can't hook up with your brother. And, you need Iman and Nene on again. But, maybe Iman should be on by herself. Too much fun.
I'm so disgusted with the Atlanta Housewives and the direction the show is going....I can not believe what racists they seem to be...Andy can you please let the Atlanta girls know that white people do where shoes and socks and we have for a couple of years now....and that EVERYONE eats food from a can every now and again...even "strong black women"....I would like to say that I never knew that in order to be considered a strong black woman you needed to get up into peoples faces screaming, yelling and foaming from the mouth like a rabbied dog....I'm very glad that some of the bravo bloggers cleared that up for me.....its all very disgusting.....this show has taken race relations back 40 years...please let NeNE know that how she behaves doesnt make her very strong at all...it is so easy to do what she does....it takes real strength to keep your composure when you are angry....anyone can scream and yell like an animal....thats so easy and how the weak behave.....NeNe's behavior makes no sense and it has become very clear that she has anger issues and needs to seek help ....I know this is all suppoed to be entertaining but it aint good entertainment....she is going to hurt someone if she doesnt get her temper under control and thats not entertaining at all....
You were great on The View Andy! Thought Barbara was very rude and did a horrible job interviewing you. She's lost her game, she could take a few queues from you and you're wonderful interview style. Love you!
love love love you Andy! you were fabulous and adorable on The View today! glad you blogged about it so i could DVR it. ploop, ploop. ploop! smooches to you!
I have to agree with you about Ricky Gervais!! He was way out of line on numerous remarks he make. Today in NY he said that even if they asked him to come back he wouldn't! Ya right, anyone would give their left arm to host a show like that!! Especially a comedian!!
You were great on the View, but their interviewing style is so weird. Question, interrupt, question, interrupt... no sitting back and enjoying a story. By trying to get the question in, all they're getting from the guest is information we already know you're going to say! (Being the politically correct Bravo exec that you are...)
I agree with you about Ricky Gervais, 100%. Some of those jokes were very mean spirited. However I have to ask: how is this different than seeing Nene trash Kim every chance she gets with you? And you all in the studio laugh it up like it's okay, when in reality people at home are uncomfortable.
Love you, Andy, but think you are totally wrong about Ricky Gervais!!! He was hilarious, he was edgy, and if he was a bit shocking - well all the better. If these beautiful, wealthy, famous people cannot laugh at themselves, well then clearly they are taking themselves way too seriously - as you seem to as well right now. Regarding the scientology comment - laughed out loud. Btw, you seem to be outing Travolta, as I think most people would think Cruise. Why would this bother you - are you a Scientologist? I mean, ok if you are, to each his own, just can't think of why else you would take offense.
WWHL is one of the rare shows that actually makes me laugh out loud :) And when you say "Puhlonk" it's hilarious. You, Andy, are SO funny!! THANK YOU for brightening my week and for your tweets that make me giggle. Somehow I feel I get to live a little vicariously through you and your adventures.
I have to disagree with you: Ricky was AWESOME! He went up to the line and then jumped over. Did you see Alec Baldwin? He had tears running down his eyes he was laughing so hard. I loved it.
BTW: I loved when you had Ben Cohen on the other night--my two favorite Cohens together at last... I saw the picture on Ben's FB page--LOVED IT!
Omg.... Can we please have a whole WWH with JUST BEN COHEN as your guest? Or maybe even a series? Please, please, pretty please?
Just wondering Andy, when do you think you will bring Bethanny back on air? I loved watching her much more than filling up Thursdays with the trashy women of 90210. Please relieve us of this grief and put normal back on. I stopped watching the network because of this trash.
NeNe likes to call Kim a monkey with a wig on....uhmmm look in the mirror NeNE.
NeNe has no class what so ever. She likes to dish out ugly, mean,rude,vulgar,violent, and disrespectful acts to people and expect them to like her for that!
She not only did it on this weeks episode again, but also did it on "Watch What Happens Live" to a caller. She is unbelievable. I feel that was so disrespectful to Andy and to BRAVO.
This woman is absolutely out of control in the public eye.
Hi Andy - This is the first time I have felt the need to write in to comment about your show. I really like your show and how you are usually a very diplomatic and straight shooter with your guests. In the past, you would not openly embarrass a guest about an inappropriate comment or behavior - but you would make a comment to 'sort of" let them know that their actions were kind of "yucky". Why did you not put Ne Ne in check? I have to believe it is because she is a big bully and you were afraid that she would attack you. I noticed that your rugby guest choose not to comment about the incident. Iman IS classy - Ne Ne IS NOT. I really hope that you are saving your real opinion for the reunion show.
Why are you so soft with NeNe? It's obvious who your favorite Bravolebrities are (Bethany, NeNe, Kyle), but you should still ask them hard questions like you do everyone else. I used to love NeNe, but she has turned into what everyone (Greg, Kim, etc.) said she is: a selfish famewhore. She manipulated the entire NYE show and was rude to Lisa, then she blamed her behavior on the bus w/Kim because "someone had to stand up to her for the way she treats Sweetie." Please! That argument was all about NeNe being jealous and trying to knock down Kim a peg or two. She is not a true friend and only wants to tear down her "friends" to build herself up. RE: NeNe's use of Kim's name to get ahead. Why didn't you ask NeNe about asking Jermaine Dupri about Kim/Tardy for the Party, and why she LIED to Kim during the argument saying she never used Kim's name??? NeNe has gone from a funny and honest lady to a loud, brash, rude b*tchy bully.
Andy come on you of all people saying something about Ricky, your kidding right? May I remind you of your jackh**e of the week. You don't think that at times thats meanspirited? Ricky didn't say anything that most of us haven't written, spoke of or thought about. He just had the guts to say it out loud and to their faces. Ha....good for him.
That being said love you....
Andy, I do adore you, but must disagree with you re. Ricky Gervais' Globes hosting performance. He was brilliant, and my only criticism was there wasn't enough of him in the telecast. After absorbing the fashion parade, the show itself is a bit of a bore btwn the big categories...enter a wild card like Gervais, and you don't want to miss what he will say next. A bit mean yes, but really, these peeps can and should be able to deal and realize it's humor and entertainment. Besides, given the self-congratulatory nature of the industry, the stars can certainly afford for Rick to "take the piss out of them" as the Brits say. Much preferable to a bland kiss-a** host.
Also agree w/some of early posts about the not-so charming train wreck NeNe has become...don't encourage her, she hardly needs it.
Andy .... You Have Got to be Joking!!
How can you say with a straight face ( no pun intended ) that Ricky Gervais was too mean for you, when you hire the meanest biatch on television Kathy Griffin, who by the way, other than "Inside the Actors Studio" is the only redeeming show on Bravo. You have reduced a once interesting and informative TV channel with no commercials, to crass, pandering mindless pablum, and as a fellow gay you sadden me. I do hope you make enough filthy lucre to make it all worthwhile.
ANDY !!! I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN TO YOU BEFORE BUT I HAD TO TONIGHT!!! AFTER WATCHING THE EXPLOSIVE FINALE OF THE BEVERLY HILLS GANG AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE , YOU FAILED TO ASK TAYLOR AND ADRIENNE THE MOST INTRIGUING QUESTION OF ALL!!! IT'S A SHAME B/C YOU ALWAYS ASK GOOD QUESTIONS.. BUT HOW COULD YOU MISS THIS ONE?? WHEN KYLE AND KIM WERE FIGHTING IN THE LIMO, KIM SAID TO KYLE "YOU STOLE MY HOUSE!!" HOW THE HECK COULD YOU NOT ASK WHAT THAT WAS ABOUT??? GEEZ!!! THAT'S ALL EVERYONE WANTED TO KNOW AND I HOPE YOU ASKED AT THE REUNION . GEEZ!
Andy you a doll! I love watching you, you are so down to earth and funny! I'm writing about last night WWH. I think Taylor still can't own up to anything, so trashy. Just wanted to share lol Love ya!
Andy, tonight will be the part 1 reunion of the ladies of Beverly Hills. I enjoyed watching the lunicy that Hollywood is known for but I do have to agree that Camille was cast in a harsh light and I just didnt see that side of her. I dont agree with the jealousy thing but she's not getting her side in a fair light and I dont even like her that much, she's a bit flighty for all this backstabbing plots. Love you guys,
Hey Andy - Looking forward to the reunion on Thursday. I hope, I hope, I hope Kim finally sets the record straight in front of Kyle and Camille and the other HWs as to exactly what Kyle said to Camille in Vegas?
Ever hear of Don Rickles??!
Ricky Gervais was the best thing about the Golden Globes....no one had too much to drink and embarrassed themselves on camera (darn). So Ricky was the only thing that kept the show alive in this snoozefest!!
By the way, I thought he made a Cruise/Scientology connection not a Travolta one. Thanks for the info!
Andy I hope the show will ask NeNe to seek help, she is just off in her own little NeNe world. Why is she on the hate train with everyone? She has put on all this weight and she has become this bitter person. She looks for ways just to put people down for no reason/ she's letting her mouth get the better of her.. Love you Andy...
Ricky Gervais is hysterical. Not one of his jokes was intended to be mean-spirited. He is just rephrasing the tabloid cover junk that is so ridiculous and making people see how truly stupid some things have become. People believe those crazy tabloids. He was making light of them. He's an exceptionally sophisticated comic. I didn't see anyone in the audience showing offense at the jokes....just saw a whole lot of true enjoyment. Ricky should never have to deal with the non-stop criticism he's taken from people who just don't get what he's doing.
HEY ANDY! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A REALITY SHOW WITH KIM ZOLCIAK AND KROY BIERMAN RAISING THEIR KID AND THEIR LIFE TOGETHER! I WOULD WATCH AND I KNOW A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE WOULD AS WELL!! THINK ABOUT IT BROTHER! A BRO IN SAINT LOUIS!!
EWW! Ricky Gervais' 3-D H.H. visual will forever be etched in my mind. I don't usually get "ferklempt" over much, but the Hugh Hefner visual with his 25 yr old nubile fiance was just TMI, and really in poor taste for the Globes - tyvm Andy, for pointing that out! Don Rickles in Vegas, maybe, but during family-hour TV, is just sad on Globe decision makers.
Speaking of sad, check out all who are saying "no no" to sad sad Ne Ne! 11-Alive must have dumped her rabid-viscious mouth flat by now! One can only hope that it got caught in time, anyway. NeNe is obviously lost, and needs help. If you ask me, she has actually convicted herself of choking Kim last season, and probably should have been shut-down back then, at the first signs of her violent tendencies. No more question in my mind as to who the liar was/is, anymore! Sorry to say it, Andy, but something really needs to be done. Ne Ne is just out of control with her hatred, and left unchecked on the bus, I have no doubt she would have choked Kim again. Poor Kim and the rest of us, who thought Ne Ne was cool people. The woman is in desperate need of anger management therapy, at the very least, IMHO.
Sing along to Kim's next song? ~~~ "They smile in yo face, and all along they jus wanna take your place, ~~~The backstabbers.~~~"
Andy I think you have to expect Ricky to "push the envelope a bit", thats just who he is. Since the Atlanta reunion is going to be coming up I think you should ask both Nene and Kim if they think they need to be in rehab? They both seem to need to drink excessively and are seen drinking in the mornings on the show. Kim was exposed on the BHHW finale and I never would have guessed she was an alcoholic but Kim and Nene are not flying low under the radar!
Can I "Keep it real" with Nene? You were raised in the south. Land of manners, right? I am here to tell you from one southern raised sister to another. What I saw (fingerpointing, insults, inviting your rude friend w/o prior consent) was anything but good manners. You seem to be the expert at pointing out to Kim, how she should/should not speak to her assistant. But you come into someone's home and then threaten to "snap their neck"? You would have been out on your behind with skid marks if I had invited you. Keepin it real..those manners were atrocious! I hope you are not asked back for a 4th season. I won't watch the show!
Wow - you must actually believe that this "relationship" is going to last longer than the blink of an eye. Either they're both white trash or he'll come to his senses about what a leech this slob is pretty soon - I would doubt they make it through the pregnancy together.....
Ricky Gervais was great!!! Not everyone needs to kiss celebrities' rear ends, right? He is edgy and smart. I'm surprised you were offended considering you never act offended by Kathy Griffin and her Bravo shows. Also, have you ever watched any of the Real Housewives' shows?! Of course you have...talk about mean-spirited! And you've even complimented and chummed it up with Patty Stanger who tells people to their faces that they are *ugly.* Think about it, Andy! If Hollywood's elite doesn't have a sense of humor about themselves, they need to get one.
