Little Andy Cohen kicks it old-school.

on Jul 22, 20100

I love camp. I'm not talking about John Waters and Mommie Dearest — I'm talking about s'mores and fires and knots and lanyards and not taking showers and stuff.

I went to Camp Nebagamon in Lake Nebagamon, Wisconsin (way up north) from 1978-1983 (yeah that was a long time ago), and I have returned for the first time to spend a couple days reconnecting with my camp family. I flew into Duluth yesterday with a group of servicemen returning to their families after two years in Iraq and witnessed some Ramotional reunions (a different, more heroic reunion than you find on Bravo) for returning heroes. Lots of tears and applause.

So now I am here and first period is about to start. I'm heading to riflery, where I was an NRA certified expert in my day. In four positions. Mm-hmm. A very versatile kid, I was. Later today the best sailor in camp is taking me out for a sail around the lake. His name is Andy Cohen and he's from St. Louis, and he's a gingey. Is that wild, or what???

OK, it's time to do something fun!

Andy, please let us know the next time you're in STL as Little Andy (and his parents) would love to see you! He had a great time sailing and hanging out with you. And, CMK1, I'm glad to hear that he was a good Boss Logger. KTFB!

Andy, I love that you use the phrase "tanorexic". Just so you know I started that phrase back in the late 90's in the Atlanta party scene. Had a "tanorexic" friend back then and came up with the phrase one night....those were the days.

Andy.... we owned chippewa ranch camp for girls in Eagle river wi.... my husband is an alumni of camp northstar which was owned by Lou Rosenblum, my husband's mentor. LOU was an alum from Nebagamon. We are friends with the current owners of Nebagamon and my husband recently wrote a memoir about camp...proceeds are going to send children to summer camp...last summer we sent 65 kids to camps...Kamaji, Chippewa, Timberlane, Northstar and Menominee. We send money from the book and donations to various camp charities such as: camp for all kids foundation, SCOPE, and the lou and renee rosenblum fund.. PLEASE PLEASE get this book....you will LOVE this book... www.campinglyyours.com many thanks, pamela

Andy, I loved Bethenny on your show tonight. She actually answered the questions that she was asked, unlike the other housewife's that you have on the show. She didn't use the line "I would rather not answer that." You need to have her on as the only guest because she is great, funny and real. Love your show and hope you enjoy the time off.

Andy Cohen is a silver fox. I named my new bike after him since I love watching him on Watch what happens live and on all of the Housewife reunions, and since I love riding bikes... bike riding and television hosts... it goes like hand in hand. I love you Andy!

Yo, Andy, Dude! Just wondering, why isn't Danielle in the cool Bravo promo? You've got a bunch of other people, but you're missing my favorite one! She's the one who makes it all worthwhile to watch! What gives? You're not judging the way the girls' club judges, are you? I thought you were cooler than that. Be fair . . . remake the promo. Or make a new one, and Danielle gets to be the star. And you kind of slighted Kim the same way. And Kelly!!!! No fair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Andy, I read that Jeana is returning. That's great! What about Lauri? Even if she doesn't how about a special with her and George like you did with Christian and Jay. When she was on there weren't cat fights. I just want to excape into others lives not watch bravo's version of Jerry Springer. BTW, you need to make the reality more realistic. When Jason arrived home to Bethenny's apartment his suitcase nearly fell over from being so empty. Also, when Danielle left Posche why wouldn't that lady know Danielle's name. She just happens to have a camera man in the store filming just anyone...please at least try to make it seem real.

Hey Andy- Just got back from visitng my son at CN and my daughter at Birch Trail on Sunday myself! The "fake" Andy Cohen was my son's boss logger - I know you know what that means! I flipped when he wrote me a letter about that (hoping it meant YOU would be the guest boss logger!) Would love to know what cabins you were in when you were there!

Anyway - thanks for getting Jeff Lewis on your anniversary show - although I thought he defended Danielle a little too heavily!

Andy, please, for the love of GD, get that vile Ashley off the show. Send her over to Jersey Shore, see how long she lasts with those girls--Boy, big tough "Chris" needs to step up to the plate and send that brat off to boarding school. Or reform school. Total drag on the show; BORING.

Andy,

I miss you asking your guests weekly if they are wearing She by Sheree'. Love the guests reaction when you ask.

Love watching your show!

When my mother told me you were in Nebagamon this week I didn't believe her! While I was growing up my uncle had a cabin just down the street from the camp! My favorite summer activity was checking out the hotties from the Boys Camp while eating a dilly bar from the Dairy Queen!

Hi Andy, I went to Camp Birch Trail, which is the "sister" camp to Camp Nebagamon! I spent many socials at Nebagamon. My years at camp are absolutely priceless. Thanks for sharing!!

Andy,

Is there going to be a reunion show for Bethenny Getting Married? There should be!

Andy,

PLEASE wear a remix of your old camp uniform in the Clubhouse!!! That would so rock.

Everyone wants to see you as a cool postmodern boyscout sipping bourbon, hangin loose with some crazy Jersey gals. (Did I say 'crazy'? Oops! Danielle said that this should "Never, EVER EVER" be said again)

Next, it looks like Teresa Guidice and Joe will have to auction off some items in thier New Jersey mansion in the near future. Will BRAVO be there to shoot the auction? It would be a shame if they end up selling off that fabulous pool table.

Sooze, don't be rude. You should have at least posted this on one of Andy's blogs about the Housewives, not his blog about camp.

Hope you are having a great time Andy, thanks for sharing.

Sooze, for REAL?? Of course Andy has to play it to build the interest and do not fool yourself, you are going to watch the reunion with a bag of nacho cheese doritos and a diet coke! If you want Andy to care about you...stop taking it all so seriously!!

Aw, c'mon Andy!!!! Post my suggestion about you producing a horror movie at camp . . . and Teresa can be the villain. Oh, wait, and Bethenny, too! And they compete to see which one of 'em terrorizes the most women! And then Bravo glorifies them and makes them quasi-pseudo-celebrities for being mean to women! Yeah!

I think you ought to make a horror movie based on camp experiences, and make Teresa the villain. That's up her alley. Plus, she needs the money.
