My heart is still so full of happy after visiting my old camp stomping grounds last week, and I'm going to see how long I can ride that wave as I'm back to the grind today in NYC. I know it'll take me at least until 11 p.m. tonight, when we have a celebration planned for our "See You In September" summer finale of Watch What Happens Live featuring Bethenny and Rachel Dratch. And Kim G. And, as the title says, we're back in September, so it's just a short break for everybody to get their wits together.
So camp was indeed fantastic and I flew back to New York Friday amidst a torrent of weather delays in Chicago. I was trying, as I sat on the runway a couple hours, to focus on the one positive thing I had going to me, and that was my iPod with a full battery. About 20 minutes after that 'love and light' meditation, one of my earphones blew out. I had to laugh.
It was so hot this weekend, and it felt like the coolest place to be was in the water at the beach, which explains why I keep finding sand in my ears. Hmm, what else happened this weekend? I saw Ivanka Trump at spinning and she is in killer shape. And I watched a bunch of Bravo cuts. And I grilled striped bass and vegetables.
I know this blog was always boring, but I wonder when it turned the corner from boring to really quite unreadable and stunningly boring. I think when the summer started it got much worse. I wonder if it will ever recover? Blogs are cyclical, right?
Here's a pic of some jello from the last meal I had at camp. It was the first time I'd laid eyes on Jello in quite some time. It is just coagulated sugar, right?
Andy, you are the effing man! I will read anything you write no matter how boring it is. I am so excited for Bethenny and Rachel Dratch tonight on Watch What Happens. I know it will be non stop laughter. My mazel of the week goes to you, for making my boring life in upstate NY a little more enjoyable :)
I have to tell you , I'm so dissapointed I thought for sure your surprise guest would have been Sean the Wedding Planner.
this blog is never boring and always a fun read to get the morning started off. especially when the news (and photos!) of theresa and joe's estate sale have made me so sad!
Hi Andy!! We are fans of the Bravo channel and we just realized now the casting for the new show "Hitmakers" is closed. We know you are VERY important with Bravo and maybe you could help us!! We are 3 sisters from Pennsylvania that write and sing our own original songs. One of us plays the guitar and piano by ear, and all 3 of us sing the vocals. Please let us know if you would be interested in watching our videos of two songs we wrote/sang on youtube!! Thank you so much for your time!! WE LOVE BRAVO :)
Andy - You are never boring. Whenever I watch you, which is always when you are on, you bring a big smile to my face.
I hope Kim G is a better guest than Danielle was last week, will there be a announcement tonight that Bethenny is getting a 2nd season ???
We will ALL miss you Andy Cohen, so until September .....
Thanks for the entertainment xoxoxox
Andy Cohen PLUS a plate heaped with quivering Red Jello?
Just think of the possibilities. I mean, how could this EVER EVER fail to be the most exciting thing on earth?
Hey, we used to spike the jello in my old camp. I'm still trying to get away with this at home too and it seems to be working.
Is that jello? Whatever it is, it looks disgusting. Andy, what is your take on (a) the Gulf Oil Disaster, and (b) the situation developing between North Korea and South Korea?
Hey Andy think you are super great....have a question for the New Jersey Reunion show....if Danielle gets restraining orders against everyone how will she continue to be on the show? Also will you be bringing your own body guards for the reunion show? lol good luck
Deb in Tulsa, OK
Andy, that's not the most appetizing photo of jello that I ever saw.Now I know why i never eat RED jello!As far as your blogs even when they're not exciting they are never boring.It's always great to see what your mind is thinking.I hope Bethenny leaves her wise ass attitude home and shows us the Bryns Mommy side.Lucky Bethenny to have Bryn and Jason!I'm anxious to see if Kim is different and not so two faced.And to you Andy ...see You In September.Love and hugs.......
Give us the details on upcoming shows. I know DC Housewives start soon, then what group can we look forward to this year? OC or Atlanta, Beverly Hills? And what about The FashionShow...when and who are the hosts going to be?
Hey Andy. I must say that I was excited at the beginning of the blog to hear Kim G is the surprise guest (although, I agree with mamajo - Sean would have been great too) Can't wait to see that! Please don't go too easy on her. You lost me a little in the middle of the blog...But then I was back when I scrolled down to see that pic of the nasty jello. You never disappoint! I'll miss you and WWHL. What do I have to look forward to now? Maybe I should get a new hobby. Love ya!!!
Andy, I love you and your show. You are never boring---you are talented, smart, attractive and yummy.. I think you are great--can we be friends on facebook..Cant wait for the mazel of the week. I am gay, 35 and live on a farm--you are not boring to me. Hugs and Kisses from Ohio
Hey Andy I'm surprised you didn't mention Theresa and Joe's problems. I feel bad for them and I think Danielle is happy and gloating. How dare her be so awful. Can't wait for Bethany and Kim G tonight and of course you Andy. I will miss the show untill it comes back on in Sept. Hopefully it will then be an hour or 2 nights a week.
THis is 4 Beth, Looking back on ur past boyfriends, did you see signs that they were not the one & what did Jason do that made u know he was? Thank you, Janelle
Do you think Kim G just wants more camera time or do you think she genuinely is now going to join forces with Teresa, Jacqueline and Caroline?
Hi Andy, Can you confirm if Kim G is related to the same family that donated the Charles I. Granatell Stadium to Don Bosco High School in Ramsey? Just curious.
I loved the video remake. I want to know if Alanta Housewives are coming back? I want to see Carolynn slap Danielle at the reunion show. Kim G gets on my nerves.
Andy--as a fellow Show Me state native, I've gotta say I love your WWHL show! How the heck does one get tickets to be in the audience? I've never been to NYC and would love to make the trip with my hunk of a hubby.
I'm already going through withdrawal and it's only 9 minutes after the season finale. Arrgh!
Tell me I did NOT just see Bethenny pulling a shocked face at the viewing of Kim and Danielle's cat fight! I mean, come on! I suppose now Bethenny is the Virgin Mary? Why, she's just oh-so-precious, now. How limited the memory of a hypocrite. Wow, and she made a funny about SpongeBobSquareTit. HA. HA. HA. Is she 'twatting' SpongeBob? GAG!!!!!!! And why was Rachel Dratch on the show? What has she got to do with it? So random!
Andy... Please please please wear something other than the color BLUE. All we see you in is BLUE!!! We want to see you in OTHER COLORS. Also, why do you wear suits all the time? It's boring...so please do something different. I mean it in a NICE WAY.
Hello Andy! This is Kristin Fox from Chicago. I have a question for Bethenny (who by the way I think is hilarious). How did she lose all that baby weight so quickly? She looks fabulous. My husband and I are trying, so I'm very curious to know what I need to do after I have a baby. Thanks!!!!
Andy, can you please ask whoever is in charge of the "editors" who approve these posts to FIRE them and hire people who know what they're doing? What is the point of even having a comments section if Bravo isn't going to post any of our comments? Cursing-free comments, 100% PG! Seriously?! That is so freaking annoying. I'm obviously not the only person, because I see others remarking about the same issue. I would think Bravo generates enough income to keep up a functioning website. Good lord.
Andy, I'll be alone each and every night, while you're away don't forget to write! See you in September!
How wonderful that you talked about summer camp experiences because it took me back to when I was called the "Pink Bikini Girl" at camp way on the other side of O'ahu when I was young.
Now I'm getting old and have to wear what is the opposite of a bikini but you brought back the happy memories and I thank you! (Mahalo nui loa)
In the spirit of aloha from Southern California, wishes for a happy and well-deserved summer break for you, Andy!
"Thanks for the memories . . . "
Thank you to BRAVO T.V., also! Good stuff . . . .
Andy, I was just wondering if any of the housewives have thought about getting together and helping us over here on the Gulf Coast. I live in Alabama, and have grown up enjoying our beautiful beaches, estuaries, and amazing wildlife that exists in all of our southern states. Now, due to this terrible tragedy, they are all in jeopardy of being lost, or have already been destroyed, and this will affect the entire country. We are just sick that there has hardly been any support from the celebrities, entertainment industry, and benefit organizers to raise money for those in need (and there are thousands. So many need to feed their families, since they are now unemployed, or their family business has been shut down (fishing, shrimping, etc.). Please suggest to your guests and those you know to come together in some way large or small and support our beautiful Gulf Coast. We love you, and we all love Bravo! Thank you,
The last show of the season was probably one of my favorites. 1) Bethenny was in great form. When she's on, she's so funny. Even when she's off, she's funny. It's really pathetic to see Kelly try to match wits with her. I think Jason is wonderful: what a lovely family. 2) Rachel Dratch's impression of the Cartoon Rat-Look Alike, Danny P was so funny! 3) I wish Kim G had more time to talk about Danielle but I'm sure she'll get future time to reminisce. Hah! 4) Andy keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing you in September.
I have to say that tonight's RHoNJ was a little more refreshing because it wasn't ALL about the feud between Danielle & the girls. At least we got to see Danielle focus on something else (which is odd in itself & I'll elaborate in a minute) which was her daughter Christine's 16th birthday party. Or was it Jillian's singing debut?? Or was it her ex-husband. You know she wore the ring to put it into the new wife's face. btw, he looked spooked to even be around Danielle.
I don't know if I'm the only one, but you need to wrap up the battle between Danielle & the rest of the cast because it seems like it's just the same show over & over again. Just sayin'.
Thanks ;) Katie
