Andy Cohen: I Hope to Work With Bethenny Again
Plus: he also reveals his emergency substitute host for WWHL.
On the latest episode of Ask Andy, the Watch What Happens Live host lovingly plays with clubhouse resident canine Wacha, dishes on which housewife he'd like to work with again and shares which friend he hopes is waiting for him on the other side.
There's only one Andy Cohen and as hard as it is to imagine anyone else sitting in his chair, Andy's assistant Daryn Carp makes a good point, what if his flight is late one night and he doesn't make it to his LIVE show?
Although Andy said "I don't care to have a guest host," he revealed he has asked good pal Mark Consuelos to be his substitute in case of emergency. "He lives in the neighborhood, he actually watches some Bravo," said Andy. He's familiar with this show... I think he would do a really good job."
Andy also expressed confidence in Bethenny Frankel as a TV personality despite the recent cancellation of her talk show. "Hopefully Bethenny and I will work together again doing something. We kinda talk about different ideas," shared Andy. "I think Bethenny is great TV."
When Daryn asked Andy about his most awkward moments on WWHL he said there have been a thousand but if he had to pick one it would be from Nate Berkus's first appearance on the show. "He was talking about the tsunami that killed his boyfriend. Someone said something very humorous [and unrelated] in my ear and I started giggling which was really bad." Clearly Berkus was understanding, the designer just appeared on the show again last month.
In a touching Ask Andy moment Daryn channelled her "inner James Lipton" and asked her boss "if Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say to you when you arrive at the pearly gates?" Andy, who was great friends with actress Natasha Richardson who passed away five years ago answered, "Natasha's waiting for you."
