Bravo staffers weigh in on Andy's denim suit. Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANDY!!!

on Jun 2, 20090

Since it's my birthday, I feel I have every right to act like a 12 year old and phone it in with a stoooopid vidblog about my denim suit.

And before I leave you to it, I'd like to say that my Facebook status update today says "is grateful" and I mean it. And, lastly, I want you also to know that my gift to you today is happening at 10 EST on RHNJ, where the S hits the F! It is MUST-SEE!  (And if you have any last question for me to ask at the reunion, post it below — we only made six eps!)

And let me know what YOU think of the suit!

I LOVE the denim suit. The fit and color works very well for you especially with the purple shirt and sneakers, very casual yet still a bit dressy. As far as the fit, well let's just say the "paunch" is still quite visible and quite nice.

Jill may be a Republican but Bloomberg is not.. she should know that he took on the GOP label to run in NYC- I am happy to say he is as liberal as they come.She is barking up the wrong tree on that one. And her thing about the troops defending our freedom in her blog? is she kidding? They were sent to slaughter in Iraq, that is what she shoudl be pissed off about- they are not defending anything.. I am so disappointed in learning she is so ignorant on the Gay issue, the troop statement so disappointing enough and then I saw she is a friend of Florida's Governor, Crist.. yikes.. kill me now!.

I have a question for Danielle. If she has been friends with Tommy for 28 years, how did he not know about what happened with the arrest..etc? She said that was 24 years ago, so wouldn't he have been a friend during that time? TV math and time never seem to add up right? Why is that?

Lurrrrrrve the denim. You owned it and you looked great in it. Mmmmuah!

For the RHONJ Danielle: Why didn't you go out and get a job instead of being at the mercy of your ex?

Take care x

Hi Andy!

The suit is a 5 but you kick it up to about an 8 or a 9. Those pants need tailoring! Tailor those pants and dirty up those shoes. Or lose the pants!

Andy: Um, how could Teresa hypocritically take offense to Danielle in her exchange with her husband when he was doing his typical, insecure straight-guy (maybe NJ) thing by offending an entire social demographic? "...so gay, gaylord..." Kudos to her for being the first housewife in all of the series to stand up for the gays when an ignorant comment like that is made. Hello?! We are the viewers of this show! Please bring this up in the reunion special(?)

To the best looking man on BRAVO (and any other network)! ANDY!

Happy Birthday! Just one quick poetic expression (and then I'll stop with the poems)!!

Happy Birthday Andy, You're the picture of success! Your friends and family love you, How rich your life's been blessed.

People Magazine Would watch their sales just thrive, If they would put you on the cover of The Sexiest Man Alive!

So on your very special day, Just thought I'd let you know, Your fans think you're terrific, You had us from "Hello"!

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous!! Have the time of your life! Wear anything you want!!

Happy Birthday Andy!! Hope you are enjoying it fully. Juat a quick question ... Is Project Runway coming back to Bravo?? Please say yes!!

Geez People Just because a husband doesn't want to be on reality tv than automatically you think the marriage is on the rocks. Cynics, perhaps some people have more dignity than to chase after that 15 min. of ridiculous fame.

HI ANDY! this is brad from the RZP! I love the denim suit and everyone should lay off you. super chic! btw I have a denim vest that you can borrow if you want to make it a three piece.

Happy Birthday! BG

PS. i think that suit would be a top seller if DKNY produced it..

Happy Birthday, Andy!!

I like the suit-I think it's a great 'nice-casual' look. I don't think nice shoes would go with the casualness of the pants as well as the tennies do though. You wear the suit well pairing it with the button-down shirt and the sneakers. The jacket would also go great with a regular pair of jeans too.

RE the RHWNJ: I have similar questions as KatNJ above: how do they know each other?...meaning how does Teresa know Dina, and how did she become friends with Danielle?...and how did Jacqueline and Danielle become friends?

I get the success from the Brownstone, but not sure I understand where the others' get their money: how does Teresa's husband do so well in the construction business...so well that she is able to carry all that cash around? And how is Jacqueline's husband so successful?

Questions for the reunion: What is the dirt that Danielle's constantly referring to that she has on Dina? What's the real status of Dina's marriage to Tommy? People are saying he's gay, that he's cheating, that their marriage is on the skids, what's the truth? Will there be the infamous "product placement" on NJ show next year? Please, Andy, NO! Is Albie in a serious relationship? If not, have I got a gal for him that even hardcore Italian mama Caroline would love! What's the deal with Jacqueline getting arrested for being in a fight? What will Teresa do on shopping days if she has a boy this time?? Dont think Big Juicy would approve - unless he comes home with a stunner like your denim outfit. (Just kidding, I hate it. Sorry dude. You're still cute and Happy B-day!)

Happy Birthday, Andy--You are the greatest!

I have a suggestion. Why not put a question/poll online. 'Who are your favorite real housewives?' * NYC - My personal favorite * New Jersey - My 2d favorite * Orange County * Atlanta

Why? I want to see Season 3 for NYC [minus Kelly] I want to see Season 2 for New Jersey Hugs, # 1 Nana from DC

***HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUBELE!!!***

I was gonna do a poem about Andy, but I couldn't think of anything to rhyme with "Nantucket".

A denim suit?? How Elton John circa 1975.

I tried to think of something to say that you usually hear on your b'day. So, here goes...

"Okay Mr. Cohen, but I charge extra for that scene."

I'm sure you've seen the Daniel Craig Popsicle. Umm, no Andy, I'm sure it doesn't taste like "that"! Oh Mary, don't ask!!!

***I LOVE (birthday boy) ANDY!!!***

My question for the reunion show for RHoNJ is - how did Teresa & Dina meet? Dina often says she has known her for 13 years, but how did they become friends. And in the same vein, if Jacqueline met Danielle at the salon and they hit it off and became friends, how did Teresa become a part of that pairing since you always see those three together? If Dina & Danielle are not really friends, and Teresa is Dina's friend, why does she hang out with Danielle so much? To protect Jacqueline? As a spy for Dina & Caroline? What's the deal?

Oh Andy...I'm diggin' the denim blazer but not diggin' the pants. Your girls are right its just strangely awkward.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

As far as RHNJ goes...all I wanna know is if any of the ladies actually like each other? It seems that they are faithful in the "family sense" but at the end of the day it seems that none of em give a damn about the others.

Again..Happy B'day Andy.. The denim suit.. flattered you when you opened up the jacket and showed off your chest..with the flattering dress shirt. For those who don't approve..use the line from the movie "The Women".."thanks for the tip, but if they (He) doesn't like what I wear I take it off..." says Crystal Allen to Mary Haines... Again happy b'dy..xxxooo

Only 6 episodes of RHNJ??!? That's the saddest thing I've ever heard....and that means Atlanta must be coming back sooner rather than later, which is even sadder...

Happy Birthday first off! And I think the denim suit is sick, and I want one! The shoe ties in the whole Justin Timberlake look and a dress shoe would clash with the fun, denim take on the business/evening suit! Two-Thumbs up!

Andy, please address a very important issue for me... Is Jill a Republican?!?!?!? I am a great SUPPORTER of hers, but honestly if she is a Republican and she fundementally SUPPORTS the Republican platform, i.e. anti-gay, anti-choice, etc. I don't think I can SUPPORT her or be her fan any longer. It was reported that she attended a private dinner with Florida Republican Charlie Crist, a politician with an extremely anti-gay stance and also reportedly very gay and very in the closet. If Jill is all about truth, she should start with him. Many of Jill's fans are gay and she even has a "gay husband", but she doesn't SUPPORT gay rights?!??!?! IS Jill anti gay marriage? Should gay men only be able to have a fake fag hag wife - come on Jill, get real!

Beyond the birthday wishes (Happy, Happy!) I agree with your pollsters - the jacket is sweet with punchy lining and unexpected chic. The concept of the suit is fine, but the pants do have a slightly odd fit (too tapered maybe?) I think that it can be explained by the fact it was the sample and they didn't work out the kinks in the trouser pattern. So rock the jacket and maybe get a tailor's opinion on the pants. Have a lovely B-Day fellow Gemini (mine's next week).
