I feel like it's a big day. Lots going on, which is why this blog is being posted so late today. I have been 24/7 workworkwork the last couple days so I don't have a ton of news to tell you - it all comes back to Bravo.
Tonight we are live at 11pm EST again (we're going to be on at 11 through May just to vibe it out) with Alex and Simon. The next 2 episodes are biggies for Alex, so you're going to want to hear what she has to say. Also - we'll be checking in with "Tardy for the Party" songstress Kim Zolciak, who's going to give us her exclusive review of the Countess' new song. I am curious to hear what she has to say...
Bravo announced today that we're broadcasting live on Bravotv.com and Ustream from the Manzo's New Jersey Housewives premiere at the Brownstone. Many Housewives will be there, including Vicki from OC and a few NY ladies, as well as Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline. Dina is hosting an event at Splash in NYC and Danielle has one going at Barracuda (both are fun NYC gay bars), so everybody should be able to get in on the action - either virtually or in person.
I got some tweets last night that we had an issue with a promo running during "Top Chef Masters"... I am getting into that today. Thanks for letting me know.
OK I have a lot to do before tonight's show, and then heading to the Derby tomorrow! See you at 11 EST.
You mean when the "winner" from last night appeared in the promo before they were revealed? Yeah, that really sucked the suspense right out of the conclusion. I expect it when I have it DVRed and are behind, but this was not nice.
I don't watch the promos so I won't know the outcome.Please don't spoil the surprise by showing snippets of whos there next week.Thanks....
Hi Andy, I just wanted to thank you for the "Good for the Jews/Badfor the Jews" game, you play. It's so hilarious and and your" Mazel" compliments, you are as talentedly funny as Betheney. Can you please continue the game. Thanks Andy
Please Andy, tell the higher up that because of Betheney, I will never watch RHWofNY anymore. When she leaves, I'll watch it again.
Wondering if Alex really feels a "kinship" with the other housewives, or more a cheerleader for the underdogs?
Jill deserved what Alex did cause she always out talks everyone else while insulting them in the process. Alex just should have put her in place when she was being violated instead of riding Bethany's coat tail.
alex was way out of line to do that to jill..how would she like it if she was blasted publicly... and bethanney may need to consider that her fught with jill may have been put in papers b hilton..and not jill. and andy .you are are great guy who ever you date is super lucky
Really?! With so many people w real issues, I find these, supposedly classy people so sad. They act like kids. Very sad that those who have so much act the way they r. Grow up! People have real problems,u should b ashamed!
My wife is a big....BIG fan of the show. With the way you market Atlanta cast members during New York shows...etc, I have been confused as to which wives are from which cities. You should really do a "Red Rover" game - sending a wife to another city or "Wife relocation Program".
-If you use my ideas, send my wife a T-shirt or something.
alex was way outta line doing that to jill all she done was made herself look small..and bethanny needs to wonder if perez was the one who put her and jills fight in the papers..and andy your mate if ya have one is lucky to have you
first off, thank god for auto-tune, lulu.
anyways, rock on Alex, I don't think you're weird. I think Jill needed to hear it, even though she's one of my favorite housewives.
Tardy for the party was totally auto tuned but I still love it WAY more than the countess' crooning.
love you ANDY!!!! -s
Gud job so far! Im sure you get this but will the producers ever have an African American on the NY show? Regarding the fact that there are a large number of really cool rich ones out there. My friends and I were talking about it (funny we are caucasian)
Yeah, I remember actually thinking when NY Housewives first aired that Jill would be good for the Jews...kind, generous, thoughtful...didn't turn out that way though. Andy, the good Jew / bad Jew game was perfect for Jill's guest appearance. You are a very talented producer. Always funny and entertaining...looking forward to you, Jeff, and Jenni tomorrow.
Andy, please watch the tape from last week when you asked Bethenny if she was Jewish. I don't know about you, but as a Jew and daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I was insulted by her grimace and utterance of disgust as if you said a dirty word. You need to go back to your tribe, lol, and join Team Jill!!
After all of Alex's posturing & pretending she is so much more mature (better) than the other NY housewives, we see her for what she really is: a woman who can barely contain her glee at getting back @ the popular girl. Pathetic.
Hey, I have a question for the Jews... Isn't it sinful to go to mediums and those who do "readings"??
Andy, love ya. Please do something about this show because it has been a goofy year. The ladies are horrible and just fight and they are not interesting in the least. I love New York and I know you can find better than this!!
LOVE the show Andy!!! Especially love it when you do the 11pm time slot instead of keeping me up until midnight! You've really come into your own on camera since the early days of the reunion shows when I used to wonder "who IS this guy?????" Was Simon drunk btw? Weird. Alex was fine but Simon was bizarre. Keep him on tape and off live tv please!
I am so proud of Alex. I am so glad someone gave Jill what she dishes out. I can't wait until next week when Alex lets Jill have it. It has been a long time in coming. I might have to change from Team Bethenny to Team Alex or Team Bethenny and Alex.
Was I the only one that had the results to last Wednesday's Top Chef Masters ruined?! With about 15 minutes remaining in the episode, Bravo played a preview of the next episode showing Susur Lee as moving on to the next round. I couldn't believe it! Nothing like spoiling the surprise...
Andy, Please go back to midnight. Like so many others, at 11:00 P. M., I'm running around getting ready for the next day, and I need to watch the news - especially weather and traffic situations - to help. I love getting settled in bed and watching at midnight. I've missed the last few shows, since by the time I have the time to watch it on my DVR (if I've remembered to record it) - I'm over it! Thanks, Mary
Andy, The Rhony reunion will need a lot of security. I would suggest holding it close to an emergency room, and a police station.You may want to wear a helmut.
I just love Jill...she truly has class not sure about anyone else on the show. Beth is truly juvenile. can't she at least come up with a different line...the show is getting boring!!
Love Simon and Alex! They are way better this season. Ive heard they arent coming back next season. Please Andy dont let this be true. I love how the ladies react to Simon. He brings a much needed laugh to the show. I like the relationship he and Alex have. BTW Alew looks great this season.
Andy- Time to be fair - let's play "Who's good for the Christians?", or "Who's good for the Muslims?", "Who's good for the Atheists?" etc. Equal time, please. Not everyone who watches you is Jewish - and since the show is on TV, fair is the way it should be. Peace!
I have to say, this was the best Watch What Happens show I've seen so far. Alex and Simon are my favorites to watch, and the WWH show Thursday night, as well as the after show on-line, were hilarious! I like the 11 PM time. I rarely watch it if it's on at midnight- too late for me
Wow...all I can say is a presympathy for you before you go shoot the NY reunion show. It seems like it's going to be one hot mess. I think you need to sit the ladies: Bethenny, Jill, Alex then on the other side Kelly, Ramona, LuAnn, the two new ones can sit off to the side and decide if they really want to do an entire season next year!!! I hope you'll bring a whistle or something, otherwise I don't know if you'll ever get a word in!!
I know that Bravo believes that the cattiness is what it's viewers tune in for with the "Real Housewives". I for one, don't. The behavior of most, if not all, has disappointed me. The shows have become which city of Housewives can one up the next. Now it's also, who can be the biggest hypocrit. Alex showed her true colors, Bethenny is now "playing" the victim, Jill is the single villian etc. etc. Used to watch the shows and yours to enjoy seeing inside to a life I don't lead. I have enough lieing backstabbers in my life. I only still watch the shows to chat with sister and neice. They are still hooked. I hope it changes again and soon.
ps your stabbing the last guest in the back on each show is also tired, they are all there pushing their own agenda. (mostly selfish btw)
I thought Bethenny's father was mean to her and never supported her on anything she accomplished....They didn't have a good relationship as I remember. And I like Jill...but the mess she made out of her and Bethenny's friendship is her own fault...She made that voice mail message a mountain that was a mole hill...If you can read between the lines I think she knows it and regrets it and wishes she would of handled it in a different manner...
