NYC Versus L.A. Smackdown! Andy Cohen Sets the Record Straight on Which City Does Everything Better

The #WWHL host breaks it down (and pulls no punches).

With a week-long Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen residency in Los Angeles going down at the Palace Theatre, the New Yorker has plenty of thoughts on how the two cities compare. Devoted Manhattanite Andy Cohen has long been a regular traveler to L.A., so he knows a thing or two about how the two cities compare — at least in his own highly opinionated assessment.

Here's where Andy stands on which city does it better in categories like...
