If you want to know how yesterday's RHNYC Reunion went, consider this: my dream last night was Bravo Exec Christian Barcellos and I in a plane ordering cocktails. I looked out the window as Christian tried to decide his drink order and saw that we were heading straight for earth, nose first. It took me a couple beats to comprehend that we were indeed crashing. I did realize it, and woke up JUST as we were to have impact.
I think that dream was the aftershock of one of the most intense days I've had, and what is absolutely and definitively the most drama-filled Housewives reunion to date. I got so, so many tweets and e-mails and posts from people wanting me to hammer the women, to not let them get away with a thing. The truth is that I felt like I was on autopilot for much of the day because they pretty much hammered each other. Yes I did get a ton of your pointed questions answered, but they filled in a lot of blanks themselves. I cannot imagine that this will not be two hours, people.
Tonight's episode of RHNYC is cant-miss. What happened when Jill surprises the ladies plays out in real time, and is shocking and raw and real. I will be live with Jerry Seinfeld at 11 (!!!) and Jerry will be playing "Housewives Ref," weighing in on many of the most controversial moments of the season. I am excited and very nervous about having one of my idols in the clubhouse. How is this possible? Wow.
In other news, the New York Post is really digging into their vendetta with SJP. It's fascinating to see how many ways they can diss her in the paper, and make up trash about her. I wonder what their problem is.
If it is necessary, make it three hours, Andy! The RHONY fans are dying for answers about this season and three hours would NOT be overkill! If you have the footage, believe me, we want to see it!
Thanks for the head's up that the NYC reunion will be as vitriolic as this season. It's a definite must MISS for me. Enough with these neurotic, wealthy, spoiled fools! I like my Housewives shows to be fun, fresh and an escapist guilty pleasure. Instead, it's been somber and confusing (as to exactly why the friendships dissolved). Maybe the NY Post picks on SJP the same reason Bravo churns out misery laden reality shows: for ratings!
I take it that Bethanny and Jill didn't hug it out? I can only imagine how good the reunion show is going to be. If there's more than 3 episodes to the reunion I think we will all be ok with it.
As an aside, I LOVE the Summer By Bravo promos. So fun!
Can't wait for tonight. Please expedite the promos for the reunion show asap.
Andy, we all don't like SJP. Have fun with the housewives and honestly, it would have been better to have some of the housewives on these last two episodes. Keep SJP and Jerry for another time.
Hey Andy - Bravo should make the whole taping available. Boy, would that thing sell. Hope Jill didn't get away with her horrible shenanigans.
I think it would be awesome if the entire NY reunion were broadcast at some point. This group of women are articulate, opinionated, emotional and spontaneous which make them the most interesting of the franchises.
Thanks for your blog Andy, we're anxious to see who was wounded at yesterday's shoot out.
Love ya Andy and your really great at your job too. If your ever in Baltimore I have someone I would like you to meet. He's amazing too.
I had my own nightmare after last weeks RHWNYC show! Love the show Andy, but I seriously doubt the Jerry watches the housewives. A better choice would have been Kelly! May be the first night I change the channel at 11. Stick with what we love.
Here's hoping the NYC housewives reunion lives up to the hype. I am hopeful that the editing this year will be done in a way that highlights all major points from the reunion and less Andy. Love ya Andy but I tune it to see you on Watch What Happens. On the reunion specials, I want to HEAR from the housewives, not see all the "hello's, how ya doing?" fast forward moments. If that means making the show longer than 2 hours, do it. Heck, one poster mentioned he/she would like to see Bravo air or sell the undedited reunion tape. I'm in!
Andy, you are the best!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOU and Watch What Happens Live. Thanks for giving the world Real Housewives... Glad you survived the RHONY Reunion taping. xoxo
Andy, you're killing me here with anticipation! I hope your crew is doing around-the-clock shifts to get these reunion shows produced pronto. Oh, to be a fly on the wall with the reunited RHoNYC...
I can' imagine how the reunion is going to be if so far we are all cringing during reg. episodes. I have to ask though do you think any of the ladies are WRONG in the way they have treated others?
I would rather have seen a HWNY instead of SJP and Jerry what do they have to do with HW"S shows besides Jerry isn't that funny when he is live!!!You will see...Andy
I'm excited for you, Andy! Having Jerry Seinfeld on your show is HUGE! I'm even excited to see it, and can't wait to hear what he thinks of the ladies. It should be a blast.
I can't wait for the reunion special. I hope they addressed real issues and not just petty stuff. Kelly looked entirely too happy for my taste when she left the building (based on a photo she posted and her loopy tweets) but on the plus side, Jill hasn't tweeted about it at all. The others said it was intense. We could use some spoilers out here, ha ha!
I plan to watch so that I can tie the show up, this is my last season with the NY crew. I'm not following Bethenny's new show either. I guarantee Bravo loses viewership. The NJ housewives show that showcased Theresa's baby's birth was beautiful and so peaceful. I'm sick of watching people rip each other'r hearts out. I see enough of that at work.
Hi Andy! The Real Housewives of Tulsa County would be HOTTTT ... we have some amazing ladies in Tulsa Oklahoma. I would love to send you a video of some of us ladies.
Hi Andy, just wanted to tell you the first time i saw the new summer bravo commercial i thought it was fun. the second time i saw it i realized it was quite top-heavy, with the ones with the biggest heads out in front, in your face, making sure they get into almost every scene. YUK!! anyways, just wanted to also let you know that when i noticed the gal from workout, i noticed that the guys from million dollar listing were absent. whats up with that? are they not coming back for a new season?
I was never a fan of SJP --just because I wasn't a S. in the C. fan--until I saw her on your show. She was sweet, articulate, intelligent, witty, gracious, and gorgeous! Oh, and married to Matthew Broderick. What's not to like? The Post should just "zip it."
Glad you made it through the reunion, Andy. You're my favorite host!
Hi Andy--thankfully you survived---I'm glad to hear they let each other have it though--did Kelly need to be taken to Bellevue? lol! Anyhoo, looking forward to tonights show and Jerry Seinfeld...and isn't the NYP owned and operated by Rupert Murdoch who owns Fox News? He and that station and that...ahem, "paper" are all full of it, so that should explain why they keep trashing SJP...they are clueless and classless!
Ramona, Betheney and Alex make a good three some they are good together. They are insane - they like conflict and cat fighting.
Luan, Kelly, Sonja & Jill and so muuch more mild mannered. Jill is Jill nothing is wrong with Jill and she is not having a nervous breakdown. That trip was insane and Ramona is not a true friend.
Hello Andy Just got done with watching the RHONY I watch every week this week was wild not like last weeks,but I hope Jill and Bethenny can make a minds,and the LuAnn can back out and let it happen. Kelly could really use a reality check,she has lost it ,that is if she ever had it.
Andy, You are so entertaining and fabulous! I just wanted you to know that. Why is Jen on RHW of NYC? She's annoying. She's in every shot like the party-crashers at the White House.
Ramona should not have kicked Jill off the Island at the house. Friends should be able to surprise friends if they are true and real friends.
So sorry, but your guest this evening is so annoying! Sorry, but sitcom actress and actors do not like reality tv. It takes their jobs. He sounds as bad as Jill! Maybe he just did not have the right script tonight blah
omg Andy......anyway....Jerry, YOU ARE AWESOME AND EXACTLY I did not even know there were still people out there with real morales and values...You said EXACTLY what I was thinking..As Usual!!!!
Andy, when where there be a reality TV show about you? I think you are more interesting that any of the housewives. I would even love a Andy Cohen Variety Show! I look forward to your show every Thurdayd night and your guests ROCK!
I am with you...how can any person or publication not ADORE SJP?
You are adorable. Take a well deserved break, when you get a chance. I can't wait to see the reunion. Thanks for keeping the show interesting.
andy i really like you but i dont likethe way youfawn over these mean,rude,nasty housewives. its a shame that these women think they are special just because they seem to be rich and the only thing they have is money certainly no manners.call them out on this PLEASE!! love you rose from Pa
Thank you for bringing us these entertaining shows! Just when I think I've seen it all, the next episode airs! Cant wait for the reunion!
And, I'm ready to start a new life at 44, if you need an assistant, I'd love to move to NYC and come to work for you! Email me!!!
Kelly is writing for the Post and is jealous of SJP! ;)
Seriously, love the new "by Bravo" tag line, and there was no better way to eulogize "Watch what Happens" than with the divine Jerry S.
All of us in San Diego, Denver, and LA agree with Jerry, your show should be "the show." You are the talent on Bravo.
Every week you are the star of Thursday! This show was hilarious watching Jerry (as he worked you over.) You two should have your own comedy show.
BTW, we feel for you when you do these reunion shows, it cannot be that much fun.
LOVE LOVE LOVE U!! I really enjoy, "Watch What Happens." I thought Jerry Seinfield seemed a little rude on tonights episode. Did he think he was to good to play along with the games???? I wasn't impressed with him. I've watched Seinfield and am familiar with him/ his sense of humor. I didn't find his lack of enthusiasm on your show funny!!! I think Jerry Seinfield should be the next JACKHOLE!!!
Just watched you w/Jerry Seinfield. That's the funniest thing I've ever seen. My stomach hurts from laughing. You crack me up! And I cannot WAIT until the reunion show(s)! Cheers, Andy! Love you soo much!
this loyal viewer is begging you personally, well, not personally, but from my heart to tell Bravo to cut out some commercial time on the housewives show. It's 50 minutes commercials and ten minutes housewives. It's alienating viewers. Please complain.
Ok so I want to get one thing straight.. They are not housewives. How can a women be a housewife if she is not married for 1. and for 2. a house wife is someone who cleans her own house and takes care of there family weather they work or not.. Just cause you have money doesnt mean you half to hire someone to be the wife oe mother to your kids or husband.. I have four kids work and still do all the wife dutys.... I do watch all the shows and I think it's really sad!!! I am only 24 yrs old and these women are olded enough to be my moms and for me to see what type of rolemodels there kids have is sad Thanks Angie
Andy, I would Watch ALL NINE HOURS of the reunion if you would show it. Filming during commercial breaks and all! Maybe you can make it available on-line. Also. please only have celebrity fans of "Real Housewives" on WWHL. Very awkward with Jerry Seinfeld tonight. LOVE YOU!!!
Andy... That had to be the most uncomfortable interview ever with Jerry Seinfeld. I think he was a jerk and wonder why he came on your show. He would not stop talking over you and made fun of the entire thing. About 8 years ago, my husband worked at a large resort where he met Jerry. He told me that he was a jerk back then and I never believed him... Until now. Wow! I was shocked by how rude and unprofessional he was. I will not watch any of his shows.
Andy, I can't wait for the reunion show, it bet it's going to be great. I just loving watching your show but tonight it was uncomfortable to watch. What was with Jerry Seinfeld??!! He was totally not going along with your show and making fun of the Real Housewives show in general. Why did he even make an appearance, it seemed to me that he didn't even want to be there or talk about the show. Isn't that the whole point?
