Andy Cohen will once again trade in Housewives for hotties ... well, for a night at least, as he will return to host the Miss Universe pageant airing live on December 19.
Joining Andy will be his pal and reality star Giuliana Rancic when the pageant takes place in the heart of holiday season. Paula Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization, said that "Andy and Giuliana are the perfect duo and the ideal hosts for this show. It's obvious they have a lot of fun on stage, which in turn makes it a great experience for the audience."
Nearly 1 billion people across the world are expected to tune in to watch the event on NBC. Andy and Giuliana have a history of pageant hosting fun, including this little spoof of 'Call Me Maybe' from the Miss USA pageant.
Huge fan of Andy, but Miss Universe? Really?
As someone who I consider a masterclass curator of housewife cinema verite, I am very disappointed that he would turn his talents to this vapid pond of T&A. Your audience deserves better. I'd tune into a Miss Housewives Pageant, but 17 year-olds with lipstick on their teeth? Not so much.
