Mad Men may have won the Emmy for Best Drama four times and there's arguably no show on television more dramatic than The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but when Elisabeth Moss and John Slattery stopped by Watch What Happens Live and chatted about RHOBH, it was pure comedy.
Several hours before she sat down with Andy Cohen, Housewives superfan Moss was catching up on the RHOBH reunion show in preparation. "Hard at work doing my research for WWHL tonight," she captioned an Instagram pic on Monday afternoon. "I live for Real Housewives reunions."
Another Mad Men star quickly revealed her own Housewives fandom when January Jones commented on Moss's post, "I saw Brandi at my hotel in NYC after we did press day! I kept my cool, you'da been proud." Moss responded, "I would have died."
But later, on WWHL, when a caller asked if she was Team Lisa and Kyle or Team Brandi and Kim, Moss said "I personally really like Lisa Vanderpump. I've always have been a fan of hers." Still, Moss maintained it's not as cut and dry as picking a side. "I also really appreciate what Brandi brings to the show," she added. "She's very interesting to watch so I appreciate her a lot. I'm not against Brandi. I just happen to kinda like Lisa."
That answer satisfied Andy but her costar John Slattery thought it she was playing both sides. "That was a cop out," said Slattery. "Brandi seems tough to me. She's very savvy. She knows what's gonna cause some fire works."
Slattery also discussed his surprising Housewives connection: he's Eileen Davidson's cousin—kinda. "She's married to Vincent Van Patten who is my wife's cousin," Slattery explained. When asked if he's spent time with the freshman Housewife, Slattery said, "I have totally hung out with Eileen and ya, she's great. He also had good things to say about Vincent, "He's super cool—the coolest."
But even though he copped to being hooked on the show—"I can't turn it off!"—Slattery doesn't seem to envy his reality star in-laws. "That's a tough gig," he told Andy. "That's a tough bunch of broads."
