Tonight on Bravo: The Beverly Hills ladies turn up the heat, and then I will most likely explode at 11 with my guests Lisa Vanderpump, her dog Jiggy, and Nate Berkus. Whaaaaa? How much fun will that be? I mean, Jiggy will be on my lap.
What is it about airplanes that makes me so ramotional? Is it that the dry air that makes everybody's hair look perfect? Is it that our lives are hanging by a thread as we're suspended in time hurtling in a tube miles above the earth? Is it, in fact, the only quiet time in which I can think and go deep with myself?
In any case, I get super-emo in the sky, and so while on American Airlines flying from LA to NYC last night, I was feeling it when the captain announced that we had two flight attendants on the crew who'd been with AA 40 years and were one flight away from their retirement. (Today is their last flight.) So both of the gals were servicing my area, and they were lovely, and their co-workers had given them fun necklaces that lit up. And I was watching them do their thing thinking about all the time they'd spent in the sky and how they will move onto their next phase, and it was just a very sweet and melancholy sight.
I got teary, would you believe it?
I got to talking with one of them, Shelly, who was so nice and spirited. I said I bet she had a lot of stories to tell from her 40 years in the air. She said they'd started in the 70's, and that I wouldn't believe some of what she'd seen. She seemed excited to move on but sweetly focused on giving me my diet coke with a big smile. She wanted to know about the Housewives, I wanted to know about her life. We met in the middle. She gave me a cookie, I got emo.
Bob Simon from "60 Minutes" was sitting in front of me. I don't think he was emo. Robin Roberts was there too, I bet she "went there." After deplaning, Robin (though seated at the front of her plane) waited in the gate area for her producer (seated in coach). That's class, people.
Between going all teary and bleary on the retirees, I read HUNGER GAMES cover to cover. Have. You. Read. It? I am so obsessed I couldn't sleep last night. I am freaking out. Katniss. I am in another world.
This morning I was on "Morning Joe" and had a BLAST. That is one fun show. And I got to meet Carl Bernstien. How cool is THAT?
Congratulations to my ladies in the sky. Enjoy your last day and the rest of your lives...
For me, its the grocery store. I think its the background music. Mist up in produce and then again in the shampoo aisle. I can't figure it out.
Wow! Andy, you are so sensitive. Maybe, it's your time of the month.. I've seen only the first ep of RHBH, but I thought it made both the OC and NYC versions obsolete. These ladies have it all going on. They have interesting jobs, carefree times and luxurious lives. Silex's climb up the social ladder is several wrungs lower than these "Gals with Gelt". RHOC seems like a "Knots Landing" cheap knock off compared to the BH 'hood. You can delete OC & NYC and not even miss them.
My daughter and I read Hunger Games with our mother/daughter book club. We loved it and quickly read the next 2. You're going to love them. My daughter (13) is in love with Peeta :)
Boring program tonight. Can you influence the producers of Housewives of Beverly Hills, to maybe get some housewives from Malibu so that we at least have some beautiful scenery, or at least a realistic composition of Beverly Hills and the surrounding area.
The Atlanta show is also getting boring. But, the new housewives do seem to revive the show. Kim and Candy are a great pair.
The New Jersey, NY, and Orange County housewives are very entertaining.
Andy, loved you on Morning Joe. Hope you and SJP do make it on asap to discuss politics...can't wait, make it happen. Love, love, love you!
Btw, what was that guy asking such a rude question to Lisa? Why does he need to know how she got so rich? Disgusting!!
GREAT WWH!!! Andy, you hit it out of the park with tonight's show! Love Lisa, watch Nate every day and Jiggy in all those costumes-- it was one of your best shows. With the pictures of the husbands,as I looked at Mauricio, I found myself thinking of John Turturro in Mr. Deeds ("only if you let me change your socks"). Of course that only added to my continual laughing out loud.
Andy, why didn't you ask if Jiggy was wearing SHE by SHER'EE? I'm sooooo disappointed!!!! Would have been tooo FUNNY!!!! Rhonda Oakland, CA
Andy I love, love, love the "watch what happen:live" shows especially the halloween episode last night with that cute little dog dresses up as some of the housewives. Not only was I laughing so loud, I had tears rolling down my face. The housewives wouldn't be the housewives without your shows recap brilliant! Keep up the good work!

Darlin' Andy ... Please let us know ahead of time when you are going to be appearing on another show!! I would watch them all if only I knew.
Your recounting of your flight to LA was adorable - you are a true gentleman ... and to be able to show and talk about your emotion ... well, all I can say is Wow.
Well, actually, I will also say what I always say ... from this chef ... you are delicious!
Love the Teresa from New Jersey dog wig! I saw those on totaldivapets.com that one is called the Pin Up.
Andy - I know you haven't posted your blog about last nights show but I have to tell you it was hysterical! The Jiggy costumes were the best bets as were the scary housewives' moments!
Nice blog about your flight, maybe pms-ing a little? Anyway, love your show as much as anything else on Bravo and as I've said in the past, please make it an hour!
Heading down to DC for the Jon Stewart Rally!
I was hoping you would interact with beautiful Lisa more. I also felt bad for Jiggy. Where,s the humor here. Yes Teresa is a joke. Thats it!!
Andy, I do believe you were "ramonal" (you can use that word if you wish, I don't own it, I just use it now that I know who Ramona is), while in flight...it must have been quite a surprise for a retiring woman to see an interest in her life from a A-lister like you....oh yes, you are an A-lister....I had to chuckle when you said she was happy to continue on and get moving with her job of handing out drinks....The way I see it, this woman who has put in some major air time, on her very LAST day was still being a good employee to the airlines, wanting to get the job done so no one would feel they were being ignored....she should have had more than a necklace, the woman should be given a day at the spa...let her put her feet up and have someone else wait on her...Andy, it isn't too late to do that for her you know..... I also wanted to comment on how surprised to see Nate Berkus on your show, I think I asked you not long ago if you two had met...what surprised me was how open and fun he seemed on your show...it seems that when he is on Oprah, he is a bit subdued...I thought he was an ultra quite guy, but I see this dude has some really extroverted personality traits...good for him...Ok...now on to Jiggy, see...I don't even want to be a BH HW, just let me be Jiggy the dog....his fashions are better than mine and eats better than I do....if I can't be him now, in my next life, I would like to come back as Jiggy....this Lisa chick happens to be the only BH HW that I really think has a finger on reality...even though her lifestyle is extravagent, she seems to be a genuine person..we appreciate that as viewers...Andy, do you think you fly too much? just be careful up there in the clouds...I will say a prayer that your feet always touch the ground safely after a flight....
Andy, Is it true that Lionel Richie's ex was going to be on RHOBH? But Lionel gave her a large sum of money not to appear on the show.
Andy, last night's WWHL was hyster. I couldn't stop laughing at Giggy as the Panda, it was like he had rigamortis (?) or something when Lisa was dancing him around and he just went comatose. You, Lisa and Nate were having so much fun together and it was contagious. Thank you, you made my night. Also, I have to ask you something, I have a son named Andy, he's always been my Andy Pandy Cotton Candy, Anyway (not too wierd), he's gone through different phases where he'll decide he wants to be called Andrew, or Drew to which I reply "Well, then I'd like to be called Cher". Did you ever decide you wanted to be called by another moniker? P.S. Love, Love, Love you.
Andy, have you ever owned a small dog like Jiggy? If so, you would know that once you do, you pretty much wear dog all the time. I tried to adopt a miniature poodle but my cat wasn't having it. But what I realized is that I am not a small dog person. I pretty much had to walk around carrying this fluffy white ball of fur with me all the time. They demand it, and will not have it any other way. While I love the small creatures, I am not ready to add one to my selection of clothing accesories. And whenever I see either Lisa or her husband on camera, they are carrying Jiggy as if he is glued to them, they might as well hot glue him to their clothing. I have a fear that Jiggy is a delicate creature, and hope that he doesn't have any health issues, because we are falling for this little pup.
I don't think Lisa like you dressing up her lil Jiggy. Glad you had safe and spirited travels, but I like it much more when you talk about the "ladies" as in any of the housewives.
OMG CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I LAUGHED SO HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a pom that looks like Jeggy and the costumes just cracked me up. By and far the best WWHL you have ever had, LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!
hi Love the show! Was wondering why Nate asked Lisa if she was wealthy or rich. I didn't know he was so rude, and he was the authority on wealthy people.
~THURSDAY'S SHOW WAS HILARIOUS...I LOVE LISA AND JIGGY IS SO CUTE & ADORABLE...BUT THOSE OUTFITS..LOOOOOL..FELT KINDA SORRY FOR THE LITTLE TEDDYBEAR...HAVING TO ENDURE ALL THOSE COSTOMES...~;)
~NATE IS SUCH A 'CUTIE-PATOOTIE'..YOUR AND HIS SMILES SURE DO LIGHT UP A ROOM..AND LISA IS JUST ONE GORGEOUS AND CLASSY LADY..~
~HAVE A FUN-FILLED HALLOWEEN WEEK-END...~xx
My area of expertise is with YorkshireTerriers. However, all toy dogs need to be handled with care. Jiggy looked exhausted and was definitely panting in the hotdog costume. If he had not been fed he could have been going into hypoglycemia which is why he looked so "dazed". I would like to give all of you involved with that little dog on that episode a "heads up" in that you may have almost pushed him over the edge. I hope he is fine today.
I knew people were going to have some negatives about Jiggy and the outfits. Reality is, many of these little dogs act like that when you put outfits on them. They freeze and act like they are in a daze. It's very harmless. WWHL knocked it out of the park. I can't wait untill it goes to an hour so everything doesn't need to be rushed so much. The show has got to be ratings gold. For that matter Andy is ratings gold. Just need more of him.
Hi Andy, First time I've commented. Enjoy watching most of the housewives, but lets get really real and get a true SOUTHERN housewife show. Not Atlanta, or Miami! I'm talking about Charleston, South Carolina, where true Southern Belles are born and bred. Those Atlanta housewives are NOT Southern Belles.
