It's 8 am and I'm already exhausted. Could it be all the electricity in the air about tonight's EXPLOSIVE "Real Housewives of New Jersey" finale? I think so. On that note, I gots to say without exaggeration that this is the most electric RH finale to date. You're gonna want MORE so badly that we've cut a kind of 'director's cut' of what we're calling "The Last Supper" and airing it this Thursday at 9pm EST. You won't want to miss it.
Speaking of Jersey, I have it on very good authority that Governor Corzine has seen the show. That's big news. It's so big, I can't say more.
I was on the TODAY show this morning with Meredith and Al talking about reality TV with Kate Coyne from PEOPLE. It was a lot of fun and, in a VERY odd coincidence, I ran into Heidi and Spencer on my way out the building last night (I guess they were coming from Fallon) and I was blinded by their blond-ness. They threatened to pitch me shows and want to be on the HOUSEWIVES. I am not sure I know what that means... Did I mention how BLOND they are? Aryan, I'd say.
Now it's time for some non-blondes, my new favorite REAL KIDS Albie and Christopher stopped by my office the other day and came up with a name for the strip club/car wash!
Hey Andy! You are so handsome and did a great job on Today! What a treat! I am getting excited for the finale as you have never steered us wrong! Thursday evening should be must see TV! Danielle did a good job as well. Bethenny rocked the 4th hour, yesterday! This a GREAT week on Today! They should utilize many Housewives when they need a co host! As Roz Russell aka Auntie Mame would say, Speides are "Aryans from Darien"! They need to vanish into obscurity and oblivion and FAST! Their blondeness is even beyond most of the OC Housewives! YIKES! Loving Handsome Andy!
OH..loved the Auntie Mame reference concerning those awful Speidi pair. I never watched their show before and have no interest in them, but they make good reality TV. (The Aryan from Darien). It was great seeing you on TODAY this morning..really was wishing Matt was there to interview. Just saw Matt's turn in Land of the Lost..he was a hoot. The Manzo boys are cool and not pretentious like other cast members on the the RHNJ. I agree with you..its mama Caroline's upbringing that keeps them level headed and loyal boys. She is the real deal.
Andy, loved your Pop Culture Expert status - and you were adorable!
Here's something I want to know - if you ever get a chance to do a video with Kelly Killoren Bensimon, please, please, please ask her how she got to the Ambassador of Wool.
You looked great on The Today shown this AM. I had to laugh when you were identified as Andy Cohen, Pop Culture Expert. Oh, you are that and so much more my brother.
On to the train wreck that is Spiedi. Here is something I wrote about those two recently:
"It makes you wish Jesus could sue them so we did not have to wait for karma to get these nitwits. Spencer Pratt is one thing. He does not pretend to believe what he is saying. His dead-eyed stare and sneer tells us all we need to know about his sincerity. It is that circus clown of a wife who takes the cake. There can not be anyone who buys her act. Can there be? I think the baby Jesus, bible-thumping crowd should be up in arms about these two.
The Splatts profess a piety in the name of ratings and NBC should be a wee bit embarrassed for not knowing the only reason they were watched on The Hills was because they were (are) despicable! They were themselves and people tuned in waiting for their fin du monde, the big reveal, and their comeuppance.
NBC should keep them under lock and key and never give them another minute of air time. That would be a nightmare come true for them."
Hahaha... Bubbies & Bumbers! Great idea Albie! I knew Jacqueline was a scrappy one! Great interview Andy! I can't wait to watch what happens tonight.
Andy, I was soo disappointerd on how easy you let Vicki off. You never brought up the fact that she was so flirtatious with her frinds husbands and wanting the boobs to come out and play. She was clearly condescending and mean spirited with Lynn and would justify by shifting the blame nack to her. She is my least favorite. Tamra is obviously jealous of Grtchen. I will not be watching the show of envious, caniving and mean spirited women.
Totally LOL with your cougar question to Albie!!! His mother would kill him if he said "yes"!!!! Thanks for the laugh. Can't wait to watch tonight!
Andy, I hope you don't agree to put the horrible Spratts in any project on Bravo. Not only quite blond but also quite dumb. Where were their parents when growing up? They grew up without any value system in place. It is bad enough you gave us Bethenny- she either was a monster before the show or the show created a monster. One horribly obnoxious reality-celeb is enough.
Can you get Bravo to cancel NJ housewives! Seriously this show is ruining the housewife series brand name! Why would anyone from DC want to do this show after seeing the trash that NJ offered up!
Questions for a NJHW reunion if there hasn't been one already.
Was it really necessary for Danielle to bring out that book to what a seemed to be a fun dinner party. She must have known the fallout that would take place.
What's up with grown women using the term, "boobies or bubbies?" They all seemed mesmerized by bigger mammary glands and using the playschool term.
The (best name for them) Manson's family are crazy!!!!!!!!!! I love Danielle and I am so glad that she called them out at the diner. I cried for Danielle's Daughters and what they put her through. I dislike Dina and her mafia's sister. I feel sorry for Jacqueline for marrying into that family however,the husband is a good husband...she is a true person and she will be in my prayers. Teresa is a nasty, boy looking, freak of nature-in case, I need it to make myself clear, I don't like her. Danielle: she is who she is and she doesn't own any one of them any explanations.
Just watched the finale on RHWONJ and congrats to Jacqueline. She and her hubby are the only ones in the family that have any class.
Theresa, I was in your corner until you revealed you were nuts. I can't imagine what would happen if one of your kids or husband pisses you off. That kind of behavior is not a once in a lifetime thing. Good thing your creepy family is around to cover for you.
Yep, Caroline, Dina, Theresa and Danelle...all creepy! All very good reason why NJ has the reputation it does.
I have a question for Danielle. Why do you share so much of your past with your daughter's, they seem so shocked especially when you revealed your modeling pictures. I can understand maybe the older daughter, but the younger one it just ..TMI..To much info.
So the New Jersey finale was crazy! My heart was beating so fast during it. I agree with what Teresa did, and I applaud her. How dare Danielle, who has blinders on, disrespect her. It wasn't about who showed the book, she brought it out, and said she didn't want things to blow out of proportion, then she shouldn't have brought it. She craves for attention and is SOO naive. I feel sorry for her about that book, but she needs to understand what she was doing. She doesn't seem that deep or intellectual, so she just needs to learn to step back, take a deep breath and realize what she is even talking about. She acted like a child and got what she deserved
I was so excited about the season finalle of the New Jersey housewives. I loved all the girls from the very beggininig, except for Danielle. I new from the very first show she was trouble. Also I am very disapointed in Jackline. Family first, if she does not think Danielle would screw her over in a heartbeat, she is sadly mistaken. Those two on the finalle, almost make me want to stop watching.
And didn't Vicki take Beer to her underage son's frat house. She needs a REALITY check. lol ps I know a perfect candidate for the RHODC. My husband's sister just was at Joe Biden's dinner party! Let me know how I can give you her info!
all the best Brian
When does The Real Housewives of New Jersey season two start up? Please tell me there is another season.
Hello Andy, Love your brutally-honest questions and tenacity in pressing for them! So, when you have the reunion for the New Jersey gals, could you ask Caroline why she is such a hypocrite? Since she is so interested in other people's pasts and not having shady people around her family, then why isn't she concerned with her father-in-law's past, the way he died, and having that kind of stigma around her family. Then, she criticizes Danielle for being a stripper, but then she tells her son to open a strip club that "mom would be proud of". The same behavior she criticizes Danielle for, she encourages her son to participate in, as the owner! And lastly, she was dead accurate when she described that her "family is as thick as thieves"...just like a thief she LIED on national tv in denying she got the book; just like a thief she tried to use MANIPULATION towards Jacqueline in making her feel guilty that when she revealed the truth about them, she was "hurting her parents"; and just like a thief, she COWARDS away from revealing the truth when she was confronted with it.
Andy! You looked sexy on the Today show, I'm shocked they didn't ask you to step in for Matt permanently. Please tell me where to post questions for the reunion episode. I hope you didn't record it already. I'm dying to know if that was really a hookah I saw in Teresa's wine cellar and if so what do they smoke out of there. You can ask it like this... Monique from Phoenix wants to know... Much Love! xoxoxoxx
Real Housewives of NJ - my favorites are Jacqueline & Teresa. I feel so sorry for Jacqueline always having to deal with her crazy sister-in-laws. Geez. I would tell them to take a hike but that shows what a great person she is. Looks like she has a good husband who is not like his sisters. Teresa is fun to watch as well. I do hate that she got so worked up in the end. I understand "the comments" that got her uptight but it came out of nowhere & made her look crazy. Who does Caroline & Dina think they are? The mafia? They are as "thick as thieves" and it showed in the last segment trying to LIE about the book and what they did. Anyway, I think I like this show better than them all. NY - Vicki & Gretchen get on my freaking nerves. Both jealous of the beautiful Gretchen & I hope they get kicked off the next season & someone new is brought in. NY - They all get on my nerves, ha. New York is definitely not like the other shows. Yuck!
Hi Andy, I'm from Maui, Hawaii and need some help with NJ terminology. What exactly is a "Chuckie" and a "Pee Pee"? I've heard it a few times this season and am completely in the dark. HELP!
These women need to think of the children before they start tossing the F-word around and flipping over tables. What a horrific scene. Danielle obviously thinks that every function must be about her. I've never seen someone so completely selfish. The fact that she would start that mess in front of the childen disgusts me.
Besides, who really cares who brought the book around, isn't the CONTENT of the book the real issue? If Danielle had found a scathing book like that about Dina, she would have told the whole world. There are more than 2 truths in that thing. Give me a break, that thing is probably 100% true and I wouldn't let my children within 10 feet of her.
Andy, Okay, it's time for a REAL reality show "The Haggard Housewives of Greenwich Village", wealthy, worn down, and dying for a drink!! Ciao
I love the Real Housewives. I've watched every season in every city. That being said...I think these girls should be called the Real Housewives of NORTH Jersey. Everyone from Jersey knows that there is a distict difference between the two halves of this state. These women epitimize North Jersey women. The fact that some of the other commenters are calling these women 'down to earth' amazes me. I think they make for great TV but good lord are they absurd. Bravo does do a very good job of picking/planting the drama queens.
Re: Real Housewives of New Jersey Season Finale.
They get a reality show, and gays aren't allowed to marry?
I loved this season of Real Housewives. I am a military spouse and language like on the finale is normal. Everyone is acting like this is some huge ordeal. Atleast you removed your children from the situation but come on kids hear this language everywhere. Atleast they heard it in the proper setting to someoneone who likes drama well baby she got drama right back at ya..........Awesome season ladies please do again... if you do a midwestern modern housewives let me know..... Don't have the money like these ladies ... the military don't pay that well hahah.But its our life and I love it Mama J
Andy, PLEASE ask Danielle, why she lied at the dinner when she said only two things in the book were true, the arrest and name change. When she said in previous shows that she was engaged 19 times and she also stripped. If she was going to confront the "lies" in the book that were being spread and not be honest at the table. And if the book was a lie as she is claiming; why didn't she sue her ex-husband for defimation of character? Only the guilty would change their name.
Hello Good Sir!
echoing Robbye's question above: why hasn't Danielle sued her ex-husband for defamation if the greater part of "the book" is bogus?
I really want to know why Dina's husband was not on the show, even in the credits. I did read that they are no longer together. Is that true?
Love, love, love the RHONJ!!!
ANDY--We are obsessed with BRAVO. We pimp your shows! We are your prostitution whores! Send us some love: 2friends1blog.com
About RHONJ, Get the two sisters off and find two other women to take their place. They are so boring. If it wasn't for Danielle, that would be a boring show.
andy love the suit and pink power tie. you are hot hot hot. will you tell us your fav housewife from all the shows? who do you feel is honest and a beautiful person inside and out. lauri, jill, caroline. kc
hi andy your interview was awesome. cannot wait to see the reunion of the housewives of NJ. they were awesome. loved caroline teresa and dina.
Hey Andy ... Who do we have to write to plead with Bravo TV to bring back HWNJ? LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this show. Best HW yet.
