8 Fabulous Diva Moments from Watch What Happens Live We're Still Applauding
Bow down at these #WWHL guests.
Every Watch What Happens Live guest brings something amazing to the table, but there's nothing quite like watching a diva do her thing. They always look flawless, come prepared to tell the best stories, and are just altogether fabulous.
Lucky for us, one of the biggest divas of all time is returning to the Bravo Clubhouse on Tuesday: Mariah Carey. The last time Mimi appeared on WWHL in December 2013, she was decked out in a sultry leather ensemble and is one of the few guests to have ever sat in Andy's usual spot on the left. We're almost not ready for all of the fierceness that is about to hit our TV screens.
In addition to Mariah, we've seen many amazing divas steal the show over the years on WWHL. Here are the diva-licious moments we're still not over.
Cher's appearance on WWHL in 2013 was so epic, the episode was dubbed the "Chermageddon." And the legendary songstress brought it, spilling the tea on her past co-stars, breaking down her wildest tweets, and making Andy Cohen's life (and ours) by re-enacting that famous slap from Moonstruck (clip above). We still get chills just thinking about it.
Lady Gaga looked like the most beautiful mermaid ever when she arrived in the Bravo Clubhouse clad in a sparkly seashell bra. The pop star revealed even more of herself as she played Plead the Fifth (clip above), talked about her fave fashion moments, and gave us her Real Housewives tagline. Now if only we could actually get Lady Gaga on The Real Housewives...
J.Lo has been a guest on WWHL a few times, but her most recent appearance has been her most diva-ish, too. When Jennifer arrived at the Bravo Clubhouse earlier this year, she admitted to maybe taking her eyes off of Mariah's "long performance" at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards "for one second" during a round of Plead the Fifth (clip above).It doesn't get much more diva-like than that.
You never know what you're going to get with Nicki Minaj, and the rapper was brutally honest when she revealed who the "biggest dicks" are in the music industry (clip above). But even Nicki loses her cool sometimes, like when Phaedra Parks surprised her to step in as a shotski buddy. We're eagerly awaiting Nicki's return to the Clubhouse.
Legendary singer Patti LaBelle has been a recurring WWHL guest, and that's probably because she always has an amazing anecdote to tell, from dishing on contemporary divas to spilling her most embarrassing onstage moments to which celebs crave her famous sweet potato pies (clip above). Patti could say anything, and we would be entertained.
Country music icon Loretta Lynn made her WWHL debut earlier this season, and she was one of the sweetest guests ever. But anyone who boasts a career like Loretta and can rock a poofy green gown like that at 84 years old more than deserves the title of diva.
You should never try to out-diva a diva. Jennifer Hudson learned that the hard way with none other than Oprah Winfrey, as she described during a memorable WWHL appearance in 2013 (clip above). Jennifer also addressed that rumored drama with Beyoncé during their Dreamgirls days in an installment of Plead the Fifth, reminding us that Queen Bey really needs to be on WWHL ASAP.
Lil Kim is one of the baddest divas to ever enter the Clubhouse. She shared a touching memory of fellow diva Whitney Houston on the show. But don't think that the rapper has gone soft. She also threw shade at Nicki (clip above) and talked about her time in jail, so this episode is definitely an oldie but a goodie.
