It is a rainy spring morning and I am wearing a bright green tie.
I stayed up late watching coverage of Health Care; it was exciting seeing something actually happening in Washington. Obama looked tired and purse-lipped. Maybe this will give him a little wind in his sails.
Janet Maslin's New York Times review of Martha Stewart's former best friend's tell-all book is LOL. It is as mean as the book itself, and reading it made me miss Maslin's film reviews - they seemed important. I can't really make any sense of the movie reviews in that paper these days, or maybe I just don't care.
There is an article about me on the AOL Homepage. It's an interview I did with a reporter in the middle of the NBC Universal TV Critics party in Pasadena. The interview is a Q/A and I sound like a complete and total idiot, with every other word being "you know" and "I mean." If you think I sound like an idiot on this blog every day, find this TV Squad article and you'll think I do not have a brain. Oy!
After we wrapped the show Thursday night, we dismissed Kelly and played some diva word association with Patti LaBelle. I loved her answers and could've kept this conversation going all night! Check it out:
Andy, it would take a lot for anyone to mistake you for the "Tinman" and think that you did not have a brain! A man as cute and handsome as you are would never have made it as far as you had in this business if you were just another pretty face!
You are amazing at what you do and look at where they did the interview, in the middle of a party! They should have been more respectful of your time and scheduled a time and place that was conducive for an interview, not just quick sound bites, which is what they essentialy got. You accomodated them by doing the interview. Don't ever doubt yourself, your fans respect the fact that you are real.
Thank you for dismissing Kelly (ty, ty, ty) and giving us this wonderful one-on-one with Miss Patti. I can't believe she's never performed with Aretha!
Andy~ What do you think about a Real Housewives of San Fran, with gay men as the housewives? Epiphony? It would be magical!!! Kristine
Andy - Love your show but isn't Bravo doing well enough to afford AC? Having to watch Miss Patti having to fan herself!! (not to mention your own occasional "wetness" ) I'm sure you can get a good deal on one before the summer! All the best!
Oh how disappointing.. Patti Labelle is way too nice and boring. You should've asked me: Madonna: Honey, stay away from the botox and 25-lb weights. Whitney: had THE most beautiful and powerful voice in the world, and it went missing. Needs to take voice lessons a few times a week to regain strength. Aretha: Is all over the map when it comes to being in tune. Can't sustain a pitch. Tina Turner: Amazing dancer, but needs to spit out many more hits to be memorable. Mariah: similar to Whitney; used to sing phenomenal hit-you-in-the-gut songs and could belt any note; now writes simple R&B tunes and songs with a five note range that she WHISPERS insead of sings. Has absolutely no sense of style. Actually looked prettier in the movie Precious than she does now (with the lighter skin, no skin tight boob-popping clothes and less makeup). Janet: quit lip syncing, or don't perform. She is beautiful though. Beyonce: tone it down. You're not Lady Gaga, and you're not so "hard-core", and you don't have to be! You have the beauty and talent to back it up.
In fact Andy you should've asked Miss LaBelle what she thinks of Gaga... she loves her, as I've heard in other interviews. Gaga is the only REAL diva we have right now: great singing voice, dancer, songwriter, stays true to herself.
Oh Andy,please tell someone to get you some AC.Sweating does not look good when you're dressed up.When you're working out it's great.Also I felt sorry for Patti LaBelle. she was fanning herself to death.What is wrong with Bravo that they don't spend some bucks to keep you and guests comfy?Come on Bravo , Andy is your treasure.Please get a move on!!!!
Andy you guys at Bravo should produce a show about make-up artists. We see the models, the designers, the public relations people, I want to see the technique of make-up on the runway, celebrities, etc. Think about it!
Andy... Love, love, love the show... I can't get enough.. Make it an hour show... Please, Please, Please.... There is so much to dish about and so little time... Love you.. Keep up the good work...
