Bravotv.com: What are your favorite current shows and what should everyone be watching?
JG: My favorite current shows -- and I don't even know how current all the shows I watch are, but still -- my fave are: Family Guy and American Dad. Other shows I watch are Ja'mie Private School Girl, and of course all the Bravo shows. I go and in and out of tons of shows, Blacklist, Scandal, Gotham, So You Think You Can Dance. . .and I can get sucked in, but I can just as easily get bored.

I also watch "Computer Shows" -- that's a Brandy term -- which are online shows that are deemed TV shows when really they're shows one watches on the computer, like Transparent (which I have been enjoying). I love Transparent. It is funny and poignant and just good. I love binge watching. I binge watched Game of Thrones' first three seasons and DIED. I love getting on. The binge watching is my favorite, next to Housewives. Housewives is probably my fave thing on TV next to my Family Guy.

Bravotv.com: What are your favorite shows and characters of all time and why?
JG: That's too hard of a question! But my impulse and rash answer is twofold. My favorite character is probably Maude but Roger from American Dad is a close second, if not equal. I love Roger. I love Roger so much and he could be my favorite character of all time. However, Maude, and Bea Arthur as a real human and a person I watched, was a revelation, ground breaking, outrageous, and still stands the test of time. Watching her informed and inspired me so much. That character is still unparalleled even in today's climate of cable, shocking story lines and controversial issues.  

Bravotv.com: What TV show was the biggest influence on your life? How?
JG: I would say again Maude but also The Carol Burnett Show. I live to watch people crack each other up. Plus it was just so funny. I will always have a fondness and nostalgic feeling for Different Strokes and The Facts of Life. The Facts of Life was the first time I feel like I saw a tinge of myself in the world through Jo Polniaczek -- lezzing out all over the tv screen. I know she wasn't an actual lez but as a young, burgeoning lez, seeing that in your eyeballs is so encouraging and awesome and fun.

Bravotv.com: What are your thoughts on the Kardashians? Are you fans of their shows?
JG: Brandy has gotten me into the Kardashians' shows. I love to hate them, yell at them, judge them, and change which one I like more than the other one. I like to see what they're wearing, what kind of plastic surgery they're doing and what bad lipstick they're wearing, what horrible life choices they make, the worst choices in men they make and how rich and successful they are. Say what you want about them -- they are killing it! Everyone wants to bash them including me, but they're rich for a reason and it can't be because we're all sitting around hating them. Or maybe it is, in which case, good for them. They are true reality stars. A tip 'o the hat to the Kardashians.  

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons and what was your favorite part?
JG: It was fun. MY favorite part was when Khloe went to Africa with her ugly, rapper, boyfriend. Who the f--- is that guy? Seriously. I just don't understand.

Bravotv.com: What was your favorite TV moment from this week’s People’s Couch episode?
Brandy Howard: VANDERPUMP RULES!!!!  I have been so excited for the new season of Vanderpump Rules because I heard a rumor in July that Jax got a nose job!! (Sidenote: I am riveted by the plastic surgery of each and every Bravolebrity. I watched the preview for the RHONJ Reunion 900 times, just trying to catch a glimpse of Amber's alleged nose job). I won't spoil the Jax nose job cliff-hanger for anyone out there who hasn't watched the premiere yet, but I will say -- on this season of Vanderpump Rules it looks a tad smaller and more streamlined than last season.
 
Bravotv.com: What are your favorite current shows and what should everyone be watching?
BH: I hate to be such a cliche, but my favorite shows are Bravo reality shows, and my absolute favorite shows are Reunions of any kind. There are lots of shows that I won't get into at the beginning, and then I'll watch the reunion and end up sitting on my couch for the next 12 hours watching a marathon from the first episode to the last. (I did this with: The Real Housewives of Miami, Vanderpump Rules, Southern Charm, Million Dollar Listing: New York).

Some other random shows I love (and never miss): The Wendy Williams Show, Small Town Security, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Shark Tank, Naked and Afraid, Watch What Happens Live, and The Howard Stern Show on Sirius Satellite Radio.

Bravotv.com: What are your favorite shows and characters of all time and why?
BH: One of my absolute favorite characters of all time is Ja'mie from HBO's Ja'mie Private School Girl. She's played by Chris Lilley, an Australian comedian. He writes the whole show and also plays the lead Ja'mie. The show is irreverent and fresh and HILARIOUS. I love comedy that is daring and unique, and this show nails it. Every single episode is genius.

Bravotv.com: What TV show was the biggest influence on your life? How?
BH: The shows that had the biggest influence on my life were the classic sitcoms I watched as a young kid: Different Strokes, Silver Spoons, Family Ties, Who's the Boss, Punky Brewster, Growing Pains, and The Cosby Show. It sounds kind of trite and ridiculous, but I was an only child, so the kids on these shows felt like part of my family.
 
Bravotv.com: What are your thoughts on the Kardashians? Are you fans of their shows?
BH: I LOVE watching the Kardashian shows. All of them! Why do I like them? I ask myself that question everyday. At it's deepest, I think I like to read between the lines and try and sift through all the bullsh-- and see what's really going on in their lives. At it's simplest, I think I just like to see what their wearing and how they decorate their houses. And then make fun of it.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons and what was your favorite part?
BH: I seriously enjoyed the first episode of K&K take the Hamptons. The sister bickering was great, and I always love when Scott threatens to fall off the wagon. He's so entertaining. Kourtney is my favorite Kardash and I LIVE for her son Mason. He's got the most magnetic personality of anyone in their entire family.
