This time, Andy Cohen’s in the hot seat!
The Watch What Happens Live host is famous for grilling his guests via “Plead the Fifth,” a truth-revealing game in which guests are only allowed to refuse to answer one question. But upon his visit to the lovely ladies of The Talk, Andy had to let a few interesting stories out, including an explanation of how he and Anderson Cooper became friends!
“Everyone knows that you and Anderson Cooper are great friends. But have you ever hooked up?”
Unfortunately, it’s purely platonic in the realm of Andy and Anderson.
“We were set up on a date in 1995, which is how I met him. And it just … nothing ... no,” said Andy. “We’re really good friends, but there’s never been anything.”
The next couple questions weren’t all that scandalous…
“As a Real Housewife, what will get you fired faster: being boring on the show or being too much of a biatch behind the scenes?” the hostesses asked him.
“Probably being boring on the show,” said Andy.
The next question, via Aisha Tyler, asked which travel-mate is the most diva-esque while on vacation and why: Anderson Cooper, Kelly Ripa, or Mark Consuelos?
Andy, looking stumped on how to answer that question without ruffling any feathers, says Anderson Cooper is always on the go.
“Maybe Coops, just because he gets a little bored quickly and runs and goes and takes a nap,” Andy said. “And he’s kind of a picky eater!”
But here’s the one that really stumped Andy.
“I have heard that lots of famous women have asked you to be on Housewives. Who are they? I want their names now!” Sharon Osbourne jokingly demanded.
After a pained look, Cohen knew exactly what answer to give: “I’m pleading the fifth to that question!”
The last question was a hypothetical one, asking if he was straight for a day, which Housewife would Andy most want to have sex with.
“I’d have to say Adriana from the Miami Housewives because she’s Brazilian and RAHHH!” Andy answered.
Of course! Who doesn’t like a little flavor from south of the border?
