Andy Cohen makes two big Watch What Happens Live announcements.
I'm excited to report that next week Watch What Happens Live is going to be on five nights straight, for a little holiday grab bag fun. We're kicking it off on Sunday night with Anderson Cooper and continuing all week with guests like Diane von Furstenberg, Tom Colicchio, Amy Sedaris, Iman, Kyle Richards, and Denise Richards. It is going to be a blast and the opportunity to keep the party going on Bravo late night every night. I hope you'll stay with us all week!
The morning's other news is that I'm throwing a live New Year's Party in the Bravo Clubhouse and you're all invited! I love a great houseparty, and so we're having one on TV, and it's going to be something else, featuring the Queen of New Year's Eve Miss Sandra Bernhard, performances from Jay Sean and Kim Zolciak, Housewives from pretty much everywhere, Jeff and Jenni, Mazel of the Year awards, and a live wig-drop at midnight!
The truth of the matter is that no one in their right mind actually WANTS to be in Times Square for New Years, right? It's packed and cold and there's nowhere to pee, and maybe it's a little anticlimactic, and you can't drink out of open containers. For me, it's all about the houseparty. I hope you turn ours on while you're having yours at home.
I'm in the cab crawling up Eighth Avenue and I'm obsessed with this big ad for Philadelphia on the side of Madison Square Garden that is promoting all their culture and the idea that you're gonna be out sooo late in Philly that you can then go get a late night nosh. Here's What: the Philly Tourism people are trying to get people away from NYC by saying the culture is so great in Philly and you can get food late there? Isn't that kind of what's already happening here??
I have nothing against Philly but I wonder if that's the best approach. OK I gotta go. James Lipton welcomes James Franco tonight at 8 and you can get a great dose of Patti at 9. I am pretty sure she has a Patti Melt or 2!
