When Andy Cohen opened up the doors to the Watch What Happens Live Clubhouse on July 16, 2009, he had one goal in mind: to have fun, off-the-cuff conversations with celebs and pals in a room that replicated his own New York City apartment. In fact, the carpet, custom made by Edward Fields, was similar to the one in his pad—and he brought in the orange swivel chairs from his place to the studio. And just how big is the space? It holds only 22 people and four cameras.
It's been five years since the show's debut and a lot has changed—particularly the set, which has grown to include dozens of knickknacks and gifts from fans and friends.
