I had such a great birthday yesterday — just the best vibes all around all day. Thanks for your comments and tweets and Facebooks and all that stuff. That was a great gift to keep me chugging through the day.
Tuesday night I assembled my posse of friends dating back over 20 years for a night of old fashioned debauchery at the Bowery Bar. That place STILL has it going on on a Tuesday night. We had a lot of fun. Another great gift was a fun lunch yesterday with my former fellow CBS intern Julie Chen at Marea. That place is spectacular and beautiful, just like the Empress of Big Brother.
My Aunt Judy sent me some awesome cupcakes from a new bakery, Butch Bakery, in NYC. The idea of this bakery is that they make manly cupcakes for men who like cupcakes but don't want pink frilly sprinkles and unicorns. I am not sure I get that mission statement, but these cupcakes were not only inordinately fresh and good — they were indeed very manly with toppings like herringbone and plaid.
The point is that there are about 100 places in town to get cupcakes BESIDES the Magnolia Bakery, and that the cupcakes at Magnolia not only are too sugary and buttery, they are very overrated and just not too good. So before you wait in that line or freak out when you see Magnolia, try Butch's or elsewhere.
I hope you had a wonderful Birthday Andy!!! I knew I like you, another June baby like me!!! WOO HOO!!
Andy glad your b-day was all you wanted and more! I just noticed that Kathy Griffin is your upcoming guest on June 17! I am going to send an email to your staff as well, but thought I would ask you if there is a way to skype or call in when she is on. Have a great idea for theatre kids to meet and greet her while she is appearing in our area on June 25. PLEASE HELP US ANDY! Thank you!
So glad you had a happy day yesterday.I sent a post but it did not get posted so Happy belated Birthday!That old saying you're not only getting older but you're getting better certainly applies!
Please keep Jennifer Gilbert on the RHONY and exit Kelly. I would like to see more of Jennifer and think it is unsafe for Kelly to continue given the "breakdown" it appears she had in St. John.
Happy Birthday Andy, you're the best ever~~ I can always count on you in keeping the housewives real!!!!
I'm glad you had an awesome birthday and that you were surrounded with the love of family and friends. Those cupcakes look so delish! I can't wait for tonight's episode of RHONY AND to see Watch What Happens!
I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday!
I disagree with someone else's comment- don't keep Jennifer, she is soooooo boring. She will never be as awesome as the addition of Sonja was! But I agree- get rid of Kelly, she's crazy. (We all tried to tell you lastt yearrrrr!)
Hi Andy, I simply adore your show, "Watch What Happens Live!" It's so much fun! I love your mixture of guests, and I live for your mazel and jackhole of the week. I'm so glad you have your own show. Thank you for all the laughs.
I'm glad you had a splendid b-day! Those cupcakes look fantastic (in a manly sort of way).
I'm looking forward to tonite's RHNYC finale because we can all be put out of our misery. This was a season from Hell. The screaming, hissy fits, jealousy, backbiting, phoniness, self absorbed characters who couldn't remember all their lines consistently. Really! They ALL behaved badly - worse than spoiled 2 year olds. The ENTIRE season revolved around Bethenny vs Jill with either one or both crying in every ep. They sucked the energy out of the rest of the cast and the fun disappeared completely. Thank goodness it ends tonite. YEAHHHHH!!!
We are all thrilled to learn that you enjoyed our manly creations.....
Thanks for giving us such a great review, and Happy Birthday.
Happy belated Birthday!!! Did Kelly really need to start crying when she found the tote bag from Bethenny, who is the drama queen now? She was mumbling "I just don't understand her". WTF, it was a nice gesture. End of story.
im wishin you the most wonderful birthday andy...i just luv ya..lol i hope nu have many..many more wonderful birthdays comin up..live life and live it to the fullist my friend...
Happy Birthday Andy. I vote to KEEP JEN GILBERT - she seems rational and has an interesting career and I'd like to see how she juggles everything. Also, she doesn't seem like a drama queen. She doesn't seem like a mean girl. Just an intelligent, successful woman who is real. Get rid of the whinging drama queens and get some REAL WOMAN on this show!!
Andy, Happy Birthday! I hope this comment reaches you before airing tonight! Don't the powers that be at Bravo think that Danielle is a serious liability to the other girls? What about her kids?
Those cupcakes look divine. On an unrelated note, I saw Jackie Warner on the Bravo summer promo, and now I'm dying to know if Workout is coming back...Please update us!
Andy please another season of 9by design they were warm loving no screaming yelling okay kids dont count its so nice to see a couple that get along with each other and everyone else, I just love them..
Please get RID of Danielle!! I'd love to see the REAL LIVES of the Real Housewives of NJ without that CHAOS. Thank you!
happy birthday! New Jersey housewives are so boring! It is so not interesting that 3 are related, the 4th is major cheese, the 5th is a complete nutcase! Please consider a new cast. snoozing! xo
Andy, I thought your little "piece" tonight on that scum Van der Sloot was totally out of place and in extremely bad taste. Just imagine how Natalie's parents are feeling right now knowing that scum has "alledgedly" killed again. He's no joking matter to either set of parent's or to anyone missing a child. You're the Jackhole of the week for that bit!!!!!!!!!!!!
Andy, love WWH. but....the NPH/Vandersloot thing was out of line. Seriously. Tasteless. The only way to redeem yourself is to have Mario on WWH. And you both have to be wearing nothing but boxer briefs the entire episode.
Happy BDay, and here's to many more.
Happy Happy Birthday Andy! It sounded like it was everything you could want in a b-day! So, what's the deal with never having up to date Full Episodes? I really want to watch all the latest and greatest, if not for the first time, but many times over! Please help a die-hard Bravo Fan!
Wow Andy. I love your show but for the first time ever, I was very offended. Your skit portraying Joran van der Sloot was so tasteless, it is beyond words. I am from Alabama, and Natalie Holloway and this other young girl were brutally murdered by him. I fail to see the humor. What happened to them is every mother's worse nightmare and a tragedy. So, congratulations - you are the "Jackhole" of the week.
happy bday from san diego ca, i just wanted to say keep up the good work. keep the mozzle of the week, plus the jackhole please. i think that jerry did have a great point about the name "watch what happen" i like the andy cohen show better, but in time right? Omg i love sonja so much, keep her please. dont like kelly to much but she makes great tv (keeper). but i also hear theres a beverly hills housewives coming soon, but i dont know a date or when:-( give us the scoop andy gosh....P.S every number is a great number; happpy bday again.
I loved the finale of RHONYC.With all their warts and all , they remain my favorites.Loved Mario and Ramona renewing their vows.Loved you and Kelly Ripa on WWHL.she's a great guest and you can tell that you two are real friends.I had forgotten about Ramona on the runway and her mesmerizing eyes.That was a hoot.Jennifer Gilbert seems like a nice woman and in time she can add to the show but for now she should not be a full time cast member.There are too many wives as it is , more than any of the other shows, why?With Bethenny gone we need some craziness...Kelly's not like Bethenny but she does add drama.Ramona and Mario are adorable and NOBODY dances like Ramona!Alex has come into her own,LuAnn is classy in her own way and i'm getting to really like Sonja.(as long as every other word is not about sex)For the glamourous life she lives, she is down to earth in so many ways, and Jill...always my favorite but who did annoy me this season.I think she learned some valuable lessons, and i want my old Jill back because I love her!!
Andy ,great show with Kelly Ripa last night!!!!Just one thing,no shout out to Dennis Hopper in with Rue and Gary????
I was so disgusted by the NPH/Vandersloot bit last night. This isn't Real Housewives land...real girls have been murdered and real families destroyed. You and everyone who was involved with the creation and production of that skit should be ashamed. You have lost a loyal fan and viewer. Tasteless. I particularly enjoyed your comment after the bit. "That's funny!" No, Andy it wasn't funny. It was horrifying.
I didn't think that Vandersloot joke was appropriate Andy, considering that some mother has just lost their child. I usually love you to pieces but for some reason, that really bothered me.
OMG!I was Laughing so much during WWH live with you & sweetie Kelly Ripa. I am so glad Ramona's walk down the stairs of the Pierre didn't emulate her runway walk.Her dress & speech were spot on.Jill looked a tad wilted don't ya think? I loved NPH's Van der Sloot moment-yes it pushed the edge but aren't we sick of this "ALLEGED" boob getting away with "ALLEGED MURDER"? It was such a fun show last night-hey MAZEL to YOU, Andy! & Happy Belated B-DAY-obviously you were NOT Tardy for your Party!Ha!
Happiest birthday to you, Andy! I just love everything that you bring to Bravo. I started out a few years ago while folding laundry, just watching a Saturday rerun of Queer Eye.. and now I am hooked on every new show. I kept telling myself - "okay, just one more episode, but no more getting addicted to another reality or contest show" But here I am inhaling yet another season of the best programming on TV. If I had a vote for the next city to star on Housewives, it would be Dallas, Texas. This city and it's people are just larger than life. I love everything about them. Truthfully? I miss JR, SueEllen and Southfork. This city would really give Noo Yawk (my personal favorite)a run for it's money. My love to the whole Bravo gang, Julia
Hi Andy... Please tell us that the reunion show will be 2 hrs! With all that went on, there is no way you can cover everything in one!
Like Vavarocky said, you are good for the Jews, but.... are you BIG for the Jews? haha. Happy Birthday.
A very happy "belated" birthday wish to you! I loved your episode of "Watch What Happens" last night with Kelly Ripa - your top four moments from HWNY were a riot and I agreed with your number one choice of Ramona's runway walk.
Hope all of your birthday wishes came true - you deserve them! Keep up the excellent work on Bravo. Love you and love just about everything on Bravo.
Andy, You deserve your own "Jackhole" award for the bit you did on Van der sloot, poor taste and not even remotely humorous. Shame.. shame... shame!
Andy IF you are ever in houston email I am orginally from St Louis Hope your birthday was fantastic did you have a drag queen
Andy! Hope u had a great birthday! Best wishes here from LA continue doing what u do cause ur hilariouse lol amazing reunions with amazing woman!.
A belated Happpy Birthday. As they say where I come from, you are a real mensch. I do wish they would take Kelly off the NYC show. She is too vulnerable and out of touch with how she is coming across.
