Does Andy Cohen Want Danielle Staub Back on the Real Housewives of New Jersey?
The #WWHL host reacts to the #RHONJ alum's headline-grabbing reunion with Teresa Giudice.
The last time Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub were on The Real Housewives of New Jersey together, they could barely be in the same room without having conflict break out, let alone actually be friendly toward one another. But it seemed as though time — and yoga — healed all wounds, as the onetime foes had a reunion that shocked the nation, meeting for not one but two yoga sessions last month.
Now that everything seems to be all good between Teresa and Danielle, is there a chance that we could see them together again on RHONJ? "I would certainly consider it," Andy Cohen said in regards to one fan's question about the possibility of Danielle being brought back to be a part of the RHONJ cast during the latest installment of Ask Andy (clip above). "We've talked about it almost every season."
And yes, Andy was just as flabbergasted by their reunion as you were. "I think I tweeted immediately, 'Oh my God. Wowza.' All that," the Watch What Happens Live host said. "I texted Teresa and said, 'Oh my God, has hell frozen over?' She said, 'You brought it up at the reunion and made me think about her.'"
Speaking of reunions, Part 1 of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 reunion kicks off Monday night at 8/7c. Andy teased in the clip that you can expect "crying" and a "walk-off" from the sit-down. "There were some people who really apologized, and there was movement. There were revelations," he said. "There was also at the end, me feeling like, well, they'll never be friends again."
Andy said that it seemed like everything was covered at the reunion that needed to be. He also revealed that he was harder on one Housewife than perhaps he has been to others in the past. "I was really tough on Kelly Dodd at the reunion," Andy shared. "I don't know how much they'll show of my part, but I felt like I was pretty tough on her."
Andy didn't hold anything back when it came to giving his thoughts on whether or not Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida, who have finalized their divorce, will ever get back together. "I think that goose is cooked, but you never know," he said.
We all know that love is in the air for Luann de Lesseps, who will be getting married this New Year's Eve to fiancé Thomas D'Agostino Jr. Andy confirmed that he was invited to witness the nuptials for himself. He's going to be away for New Year's Eve, but will he be getting The Real Housewives of New York City Countess a wedding gift anyway? Andy said, "I guess I have to, right?"
