Do you remember me complaining in June that my Buddha -- a birthday gift from the Perskys a few years ago -- was stolen off my deck in Sag Harbor in what can only be characterized as tempting the fates of karma? Well, I returned to my house for the first time in a month to find the Buddha safely returned and perched in it's given home!
What does this mean??!!???
I can only assume that the thieves came to their senses and realized that it is just plain bad to steal a Buddha. The fact that they returned it is amazing and I commend them for doing the right thing. And I forgive them. And I actually think it's awesome that they brought it back.
This kind of story seems to me like something that would happen in Jeff Lewis' world. Jeff has what might be described as the nuttiest, most hostile, client interaction tonight on Flipping Out. Poor Tracey, is all I can say.
Last night I was at an amazing benefit for Broadway in South Africa, which is a charity bringing Broadway performers to South Africa to teach arts education to kids who don't have access to a ball change, and such. There were incredible performances and it was an inspiring night.
Of course, everything was coming up Atlanta Housewives yesterday and the folks at Bravotv.com had little Ben Weiner stop by my office to interview Nene and Sheree. Is that genius? The video will be up in the next few days, so be sure to check back to watch.
Andy Cohen, NeNe Leakes, Sheree Whitfield, Ben Weiner
And clearly people were talking about ATL last night because they were trending topics all over Twitter last night. Here's what topics were trending in the USA when I checked last night (this was before "Stunt Queen.")
Your first sentance should read: .Do you remember me complaining in June, July, Aug, Sept that my Buddha -- a birthday gift from the Perskys a few years ago -- was stolen...
Glad he's back!
For lack of a better place to respond to the bonus clip of the ladies dishing about dwight:
TV Gold. Better than any scene in the show!!!! whoop whoop!
OMG Andy!! Ben is like a mini YOU!!!! If that were truly the case, the world would be doubly interesting and fun!!! Love you Andy!! Love WWHL!! Lovin' me some Nene Leakes!!!!!
When When When are the RHNJ coming back? Enjoyed the RHATL last night, it was good to see Kim and her daughter....need more of that. NeNe is fierce!!! LOVE it.
Hooray! I'm so happy your Buddha is back. Last year someone stole Santa from my porch and I'm hoping he'll make his way back in time for the holidays.
I think the best line I have heard this season on Bravo came from Trace on Flipping Out. Crazy clients don't bother me cause I work for a crazy boss!! I think that was pretty colse to what Trace said. I was imaging you Andy rolling on the floor. Cause it seems like you and Jeff have this love hate relationship. In a good way!!
And the Buddha spoke: "Dude, return me to Andy's porch immediately-it's almost Happy Hour and Andy's stirring pomegranate martinis!"
And so the Buddha was returned.
Love that Buddha is back! LOVE Ben Weiner! Andy, Andy, a new game you MUST play!!!! Tally how many times Kim and Nene each move that HAIR OUTTA THEIR FACES!!!!!!!!!!!! The peach who "shifts" her hair the most in any given episode wins a bottle of Chardonnay! hahahahahaha
Is that your OFFICE that Ben Weiner is sitting in! My image of you is now totally blown. Where's the cutting edge, ecclectic, Mr. Personality space I envisioned! Quick...Call Jeff Lewis!
