Andy Cohen has just the thing to get you through the winter blahs.

on Jan 27, 20110

If tonight's Beverly Hills Housewives Reunion isn't enough to get you through the winter blahs, then you're in bad shape and might have SAD.

Here are two videos I took behind the scenes of the reunion, one was right before we started rolling, and the other is me picking my favorite pair of reunion shoes....

Andy, you are the perfect host. Your ability to ask pointed questions without causing a riot is an art. I love the housewife shows. You hit the nail on the head for the Beverly Hills housewives except for Taylor. She should have been pinned to the wall for instigating all the drama and I feel she got a "free" ride. I think you made some effort to call her out but it fell short in my eyes. Aside from Taylor, I love the way you handle the drama.

Andy I thought it was strange, I thought it was strange that both Kyle and Kelsey used the same words to get Camille to be part of the show. Both said something to the affect “why don't you have something for you". I am wondering if Kelsey approached Kyle to ask Camille to be on the show. This is very questionable to me. I don't know if Kyle was part of this or if Kelsey used Kyle to get Camille on the show. I would like to know if anyone else picked up on this.

I hope Bravo post my comment. I never see my postings listed on Bravo.

Andy, I ADORE you!!! I do wish, however, the Reunion Show could have been taped after everyone saw the finale episode. There would have been THOUSANDS of Taylor haters, and maybe Camille wouldn't have been the punching bag of the night. Yes, she was obnoxious durring the season, but Taylor and Kyle showed their true colors, which made Camille not as bad.. Love Love Love You!!

Camille should come back for next season, as the housewife with most drama, her agents could command big bucks to keep her on the show! She needs to gain some confidence and this would help her. Camille needs to "own it" and create her new self and promote single parenting and divorced women standing up for themselves and creating a positive life for themselves and their kids. whatever happened in the first season that was so negative on all sides, I would love to root for her in a new season!!

CONGRATS on a great season of the RHOBH. I don't know how you do it, with the Reunion and the WWHL shows, but you ask questions with enough finesse that the ladies spill...and you endear them just the same. Beverly Hills is by far THE BEST SHOW. Totally love it. JOB WELL DONE, ANDY COHEN, JOB WELL DONE!

I couldn't agree with you more sassyj! I was going to say the same thing! Every time I see most of these ladies, they have a drink in their hand. SHame on them for picking on someone weaker just to make themselves look better. Guess what....they look like fools and bullies!

Andy can you ask kyle why did she bring Kim on the show and she knows that she was dealing with some issues.being on tv have a camera follows you is a lot of pressure

Thanks 4 clearing that up, I knew I remembered someone saying that about Camille's figure, I just didn't realize until it was her until you jogged my memory. I also agree about the tape being played for the ladies so we can put it to rest once and for all.

Have you ever thought about making a Real Housewives of Palm Beach, I bet it would be a huge hit!!!

Think you did a TERRIFIC job and addressed a lot of issues/questions that I was curious about during Part 1 :) GREAT JOB ANDY!! Love your shows, your tweets, and you!! I do have one question. I was stunned when I heard Taylor call viewers who had posted negative comments "cowards". I was offended. One of the reasons I love the Housewives is that we have a chance to read the blogs and can interact with the members by posting comments, good or bad. Andy, how do you and others at Bravo feel about her comment? Are the viewers considered "cowards" by the folks at Bravo??

Andy,

You really seem to side with Kyle the most. I know she's the one that gathered the cast together, but why would you agree to have Kim on if she was an alcoholic? It seems that her alleged disease has become the scapegoat. Also, it seems the entire frachise "drinks" throught the scenes. So, what determines when someone is an alcoholic?

I think you're great! Just curious as to why this isn't addressed by anyone

Andy - Why do you film the reunion shows before the end of the series? It is very frustrating to the viewers when you don't address the latest episodes in your interviews. Maybe you should rethink the filming schedule. And give me a shout if you ever decide to do a RHW of Detroit!

You where way to harsh on Camille and not hard enough on trouble maker Taylor. I get Camille made your life harder, but you lost your balance. You are off your game. I am sick of Taylor please replace her. I miss ya get your balance groove back.

HI ANDY, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT A SHOW CALLED BEVERLY HILLS HOUSEKEEPERS ? CAN YOU IMAGINE THE JUICE THAT WOULD FLOW ?

I must say as a person who has been fighting stage IV Breast Cancer for the last 7 years, that the "Housewife's" series has really brought some entertainment to my real life. I can see why Camille is concerned the "Most Hated" so far. She even made untrue statements at the reunion show about Kayle, again....so why does she have it out for her? Camille really thinks she is above everybody. Oh, and Andy, I liked the shoes you put on your blog, but they don't hold a candle to the ones that Adrienne wore to Taylor's Party....those were the prettiest shoes I have ever seen. Also, hats off to Adrienne, she is probably the richest of them all, but very down to earth, and she gets my vote for most classy.

I agree Andy you need to be tougher on Taylor...make her answer your questions...and I think another good question for Kyle would be if she agrees with the way Taylor treats her sister and why she doesn't confront Taylor about it if she disagrees....Taylor is the biggest pot stirrer in the bunch !! I would appreciate hearing those questions on part 2..Thanks ...Sharon from Michigan

I Love Camille and think she has got the raw end of the stick.More than likely probably during the editing process.For God sakes she held it together during filming and a divorce. Insecure??Of course she's insecure she is losing everything she knows as what was her life. I have kept up with that couple since they got together.13 years is a long time together and she stood by that man through addiction and everything else.Women are a little catty when they have to reinvent and figure out who they are all over again. I love Kelsey Grammer as well, it's sick to watch this couple split.My question is does she (Camille) feel like Kelsey took the best years of her life and ran. A 29 year old flight attendant hmm do we see a sequel here. Will we see her in the same position in her 40's?I love ya Camille "F*&K EM"

Andy,

I loved that you asked the hard questions, but I think you were a little to passive with Taylor - did the kiss of her soft lips leave you under her spell? It would have been great if the clip of Taylor and Kim's conversation at the airport was shown during part 1 when they were discussing it. It would have been much harder for Taylor to lie or scapegoat the truth. Taylor and Camille are 2 peas in a pod.

oh Yeah - I do believe that while on the plane to Las Vegas it was Camille herself who stated that she used a surrogate so that she would not mess up her figure - check the tape. If you find that I am correct, please bust her lie on part 2. You see how quick she was to place blame on someone else. Also, on Camera Camille says she had no idea that anything was wrong but then last night she justifies her behavior due to her knowing the marriage was falling apart. She is full of contradictions.

Can't wait for part two.

OK Andy....you were really lame last night on the show. Did you really have read all 81 words used by viewers in reference to Camille...really? Are you really going to nail Kim to a cross on her possible alcoholism...really? You are just as much a bully as Taylor and Kyle. Taylor was still "threatening" Kim last night!!!! "Don't go there"....or what, Taylor? You also didn't keep Kyle at bay... She talked alllll over Camille...but when she wanted to speak, she shushed Camille up..... You seemed a littl overwhelmed by this reunion. I'm not looking forward to watching you next week as I fear you will focus on the wrong things.... Do you read the blogs? Everyone wants you to hold Kyle and Taylor accountable.

Just wanted to say that I love you, Bravo, and your blog. I definetly have a case of the blahs right now, but watching Bravo, your show especially, always takes me away for a while. I wish your show was longer. Thanks for who you are and what you do.

Andy, I love how much of a straight shooter you are! Especially when it came to Camille. She needed her bubble burst and you were right with your needle.

Andy,

I usually love you on these reunion shows, but I've got to say it looked like you were kinda picking on Camille. I am most definitely NOT a fan of hers but you seemed to take Kyle's side more, also when you said insecure people react the strongest against the word insecure, who says that exactly?

Andy, you looked better than all the ladies on the RHOBH reunion.I love how great your clothes have been lately.Fabulous.I think all of the ladies looked beautiful, but I like Lisa.She looks so elegant no matter what she wears...and I think that English accent helps too.What is it about accents....i love them....they're so charming no matter where they come from.And I'm waiting for the RHONYC . They have always been my favorites even when they act crazy !As I always said they are the classiest of the bunch to me! Have a wonderful weekend Andy...I love watching you no matter what show you're doing.....you make my day!

Please tell Camille that everyone who watches the show doesn't hate her. In fact, I believe most people dislike Kyle. Camille has issues but then who doesn't? If Kyle was a nice person, she wouldn't go out and attack other women who are not as verbally strong as her or who can't sling mud as well as her. Too much hate Kyle. Really! Kyle goes on the attack in the limo with her sister when it was Taylor who should have been addressed. Even Lisa tries to tell Kyle about Taylor but Kyle seems blind when it comes to Taylor. Taylor a miserable woman who is in a completely loveless marriage. Can you imagine how Kyle would have attacked Camille if Camille threw a $50-60 thousand dollar birthday party? Maybe Camille's friend was right about Kyle and her husband. I can't imagine Kyle's husband being proud of her. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a separation in 2011 for Kyle and her husband.

Oh Andy, where are you?? No WWHL tonight. Donny is cute and everything, but you are irreplaceable. OK, here's the thing........is there anyway to ask Taylor and Camille to not talk over other people?? I think it's called interrupting, and it's considered bad manners (Taylor), plus we can't really understand what is being said, it just sounds like a bunch of blah blah blah, shriek, blah blah, shriek. Just a thought.

ANDY!!!! 2 things please get Kim on WWHL - by herself for the full show - and get her perspective on things (please not with Kyle, cause she will redirect the convo)....ALSO please get Kim to clear up whether she heard Kyle and Camille's convo - as Kyle and Taylor have assert all season. Was a bit disappointed you didn't ask this during the reunion tonight.

After watching tonight, I dislike Taylor more and more, especially regarding her behavior toward Kim. She comes across as spiteful and just down right mean. She acts so high and mighty, like she's above the fray. It seems like she always has to be right. And in defense of Kim, I don't recall Kyle ever having Kim's back this whole season. Whenever Taylor or Lisa were saying mean or hurtful things to or about Kim, Kyle never spoke up for her or tried to shut down the argument. She just sat there with a look on her face like, take that!

Watching you tonight, Andy, brought back the same uncomfortable feeling I had while watching last years RHofNYC Reunion. That time the easy target was Jill Zarin, and this time it was Camille Grammer. We're all familiar with the reputations these ladies developed, and their own actions were to blame. But with both of them, you took your "reporting" of negative viewer comments too far and went on for too long -- to the point that even the other housewives became uncomfortable. Was it really necessary to read off ALL the many negative adjectives that you did tonight? We've heard them all before, and just a small sampling would have been sufficient. I'm not a fan of Camille's, but It makes me wonder if you have a deep down (but poorly hidden) dislike of these women. One can interview and report truthfully, but still do it with compassion and good manners.

Just watched the reunion, Pt. 1. Actually had to watch the second half hour again because the Bravo channel in Chicago kept going out. I think Camille and Kim Richards love playing victim. Kyle is not a bully. She is speaking her mind and defending herself against two women who are delusional and make up stuff. I think Adrienne and Lisa both are the smartest ones not to get into all the bs some of the others bring.

Beverly Hills housewives are my favorite of the housewives series. The others HWs can't compare to the BHwives reality problems, interesting pasts, conflicts, careers, fights, affluence, glamour, & gossip ALL while actually liking each other. They are real girlfriends. I don't even watch the other shows except Atlanta HW but even that show there is only Kandi that seem real, talented, successful & real.

I do agree with you Andy but "anything" that she wears is sexy and beautiful ! She is one of the hottest housewives and she actually is a housewife - amazing !

Hey Andy,

Why so secretive about where you are this week and what you're shooting? Must be good! Good job with the reunion, I thought you really got through to Camille about her insecurity issue. You drew it out of her beautifully. Can't wait for part II. Love, love, love Donny Deutch by the way!!!!!!!!!

PS. Love you first!

Taylor SLAMS Kim at any chance she gets...Kim is needy & should have the support of her sister....never seems to though. Taylor needs to back off Kim & worry about her own problems...

I think that Camille is a sympathetic character now after all is revealed.....I wish her the best, no one deserves to be treated like that. Kyle is not as much the victim as she appeared at the begining.

Maybe this is not the right place to post this, but is it just me or does Kyle accuse her sister Kim for not being there for her and having her back, but when her new "bestie" Taylor is attacking Kim, Kyle says NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. Not even a quiet "back off a little Taylor" Kyle started out as my favorite, but seeing how she treats her sister...I am no longer a fan. Taylor is very smarmy, stirring the pot on things, being 2 faced and trying to cuddle up to Kyle and separate her from her sister and Lisa....kind of single white female if you ask me.

I still don't trust Taylor as far as I can throw her even if it is to Oklahoma! I believe that it was Taylor who made the remark about Camille and not having the children naturally and yet she didn't own up to it. I feel that Taylor has never really given Kim a chance and she needs to realize that blood is thicker than friendship. Does she really think that bashing Kyle's sister is going to keep her friendship with Kyle on good terms?
