Lots of Champers popping this morning at Bravo.... Mazel to Kathy Griffin and our whole Top Chef team — they're all Emmy nominees! TC is up for Outstanding Reality Competition and Kathy is up for Best Reality Show! Yipee!!!!
Here comes the bride tonight on Bravo, when Bethenny gets married in what looks like one of the most gorgeous weddings I've ever seen. I cried. (But I'm a crier.) I have gotten many tweets since the wedding in March asking if I was invited and if I was, why I didn't go? I was indeed invited and I regretfully couldn't attend because it was Bruce's long-planned birthday celebration in Miami.
Anyway, the episode is great, and Bethenny's People mag cover story fills in a lot of blanks about her past.
So the spinning continues, and yesterday I was checking in and there behind the desk was NYC Prep star Sebastian and his hair. I spun extra hard because I was so happy to see anybody from NYC Prep. I loved that show. By the way, the ladies who go to Soul Cycle all seem to be teeny and thin and drive HUGE cars — their make of choice looks to be whatever is the latest Mercedes SUV.
Last night my mom asked me to explain who Lindsay Lohan was and why people care about her.... It was sad. By the way, Lindsay needs Adderall in jail??? Whaa? Doesn't that make you high?
Andy I loved NYC Prep too!!!!! How about another season with new high schoolers or an update of where are they now? BTW, think I in the episode of RHONYC where Jill is skating in a tutu at Bryant Park and standing next to Ally is Taylor from NYC Prep??
I have a comment unrelated to this particular blog post, and on the FAQ page it was suggested that if I commented on your blog I would be most likely to receive an answer. I was just wondering if the chefs on Top Chef create a large amount of leftover food while preparing for quickfire and elimination challenges, and if so, if these leftovers are donated or just disposed of in the trash.
Thanks so much.
Can't wait Andy! I'm so happy for Bethenny. Jason betta take care of her. He seems really genuine and sincere. Many good years to them! Cheers! "T"
andy i'm nt a big fan of bethany .I dont care for her person.can you tell how did she end up with a show of her own and why the housewives of Atlanta hasn't been on yet?there are other people who could had their own show besides Bethany!
Bethenny is fun to watch and so smart and quick witted.
On Real Housewives of NJ, what is the necklace that Caroline wears so much? It looks like an evil eye.
I can't believe Bravo is airing The Real Housewives of D.C. My girlfriends and I watch every season together and we love it, but none of us will be watching the next season. What that couple did is inexcusable and because of them we will not be watching. Sneaking into the White House Party and then acting like they were invited is disgraceful. I hope the show fails and Bravo doesn't give The Housewives of D.C. a second season.
andy, i tweeted that i saw sebastian at soul cycle 2 weeks ago! the fact that they have a bravolebrity working there and jars of gumballs makes it my favorite place on earth. if i see you there i better get a sweaty hug!
Bethenny's wedding planner is GREAT!!! he has done a tremendous job with all aspects of her wedding!! Love Him!! He needs his won show!
"Bethenny Getting Married" is the best of all Bravo's Reality Series, because "it's real"~ no females acting like high school kids. All of us can relate to her "mad world". Hope her show will grow like "Kate Plus 8" did with the TV viewing world. Now, we await the excitement of their baby arriving. Thanks for giving us a wonderful show! Keep it up!
Andy, it was indeed a beautiful wedding. Congratulations to Bethany and Jason. It's been a fun series to watch. I hope you can convince the brass at Bravo to consider Shawn for a show. He's a real trip. I laugh at the facial expressions alone.
Andy, I love the Bethenny's show. I love Bravo TV and I watch you often. Bethenny's show is the only NY & NJ show to be diversified. Her NYc shots have shown and included black and Asian people. You have great representation of Gay people on your shows but they are not very diversified. How in NY & Nj can you have general people scenes and not be diversified. I am angry and disappointed. I love Bethenny she has a diverse group of friends or at least we see them in her show. The housewives of NJ are a joke and will die out. The characters are shallow and one dimensional. Especially since we do not have any college graduates. Rutgers and Princeton are pissed. They do not represent much about Jersey and you only reinforce how racist and ghetto Jersey is. Even if it is a 2 million dollar home ghetto called Franklin Lakes. You have not shown Atlantic City or the shore, just mobsters and big haired, ignorant, no class women. At least give them some lessons. I am a teacher and travel a lot. You have not helped NJ's image and I hope you pick a better group of women to represent our state. The very least is to have a family that can show the diversity of our state in the story line!!
Andy, I am such a big fan. You make watching the housewives so much more interesting I love your sense of humor. I hope watch what happens stays on for years to come. You are a great host and I look forward to watching anything you are on. Can't wait for the next reunion special.
Congrats Bethany on your big day. Glad to see that Jill Z. was not there or the Countess . They are really, really media _itches. If you ever want to get out of the big city and see a more relaxed life - just say the word. Sorry I'm not a skinny girl but I would like to be! Damn no will power -- Take care of baby --new life - it was the most important thing I ever did and you will ever do. My "baby" is 25 years old now and a boy and 850 miles away and my only one and I miss him but he calls--he loves parents --Kids will not be "perfect". But they will always be yours. Not the money but the time you spend on them. That is my advice and best wishes. Rest and spend time with your baby and new husband. Best of Life -- J in IA.
andy, your question on Adderall; it's a medication used to control ADD. It's a great med that you can give a kid on school days, and don't have to give on the week-ends, or summer. On folks with ADD,( moi),many medications that help us to focus act opposite on others. Example, most people with 4-5 cups of coffee in them have had enough and can get jittery. People with ADD use caffeine to control the energy and stay on task. Same goes with medication that makes others sleepy, like sinus and cold medications. I never took speed in college to cram all night, I took an antihistamine and I was wired. anti-emetics can cause a bod reaction for us as well. some psychotropic drugs, like compazine for example, can be used to quiet nausea and vomiting. It accomplishes that with folks like me, but the secondary effect is I go stark raving nuts! Being a nurse, I realized I was having a drug reaction. It was awful. The big problem with adderall is it is also used as an appetite suppressant, so parents and dieters will do anything to get their hands on the stuff, and it makes them high as a kite , impairing their judgement. This drug is carefully monitored not because of the folks ( kids), it's given to, but because parents abuse it . I know of a few parents who tried to get their kid Dx with ADD so they could get access to adderall!
Re: Bethanny Getting Married? I find it a bit ridiculous that Bethanny allows the Bravo camera crew to film her peeing in a bucket right before her wedding ceremony, but that Jason's family and friends were not allowed to take any pictures of them during their wedding ceremony. Don't get me wrong, I love Bethanny - but that was a bit much....just sayin.
andy please give shawn his own show!! seriously, if anyone is capable of stealing thunder from a bride on her wedding day, it's shawn. he was hilarious!! but has such a sweet and sincere personality as well. i want him to adopt me. (i'm 29). :)
and also, please get rid of danielle staub already! i hope you are reading all the messages being posted all over the internet. she is SO painful to watch on rhonj. and her ridiculous one-on-one interviews make me roll my eyes so far into my head, i'm worried i'll go blind. she's intolerable.
I am going to put this out there.
I have been watching some of the past RHONYC reruns and I am boggled at the change of attitude in these women from then to now. Wow.
I can only deduce that exposure to the Airwaves has created some real primadonnas and a few monsters.. Some, are now completely intolerable when they were at least reasonably pleasant (if not pretentious) before this year.
Andy I love Bethenny's new show it's the kind of show I want to see more of. No excessive stupid drama just real people living their lives. What are the plans for season 2 will ther be a Bethenny Married! a show just following her and Jason around watching them adjust to marriage and learning to be parents. Also Shawn the wedding planner would do great with his own show!
I agree with the other comment about Shawn The Wedding Planner having his own spin off show. He is absolutely hilarious! Make it happen Andy!!! You have that kind of pull right?
Try #2...Anyway Andy, I agree with the other commenter about Shawn, the Wedding Planner. He should have the next spin off. He's hilarious. Make it happen Andy...you have that kind of pull around Bravo, right?!?!
Andy, i just want to add that you should be getting an Emmy. I love your show. Best thing on t.v. Your viewers should be aloud to vote. It would be a land slide.
I love this show. I didn't know if she could carry a whole hour, but it doesn't even seem like enough time. I love Jason and his adoring parents. Shawn was great and I also hope he gets his own show. Please tell Omarossa if that's how you spell it that some of us did watch Bethenny on the Martha Stewart show and we loved her then and love her now. Thanks for this show, but I'm not going to watch RHODC because the cost of the crashers.
I loved seeing Bethennys wedding.It reinforces what i already knew,Jason is such a treasure....he's smart. good looking, kind, loving,is so much fun, and loves his family and friends.She is one lucky lady to have him and I hope he'll make her less caustic when she opens her mouth.I think he has worked his magic already.I could have done without seeing her pee in the bucket though.I'm wondering what happened to Toby on Top chef....he came up with some of the funniest comments at times.Are Gail and Chef Eric sharing the time on TC?I hope Gail won't leave because of her new show.
Andy, congratulations for finally putting on a show I can laugh, cry, and laugh again. Bethenney is my Lucy and Jason is my Ricky.
The Housewives of NYC and the Housewives of NJ
Why wasn't Sonja Morgan at Bethenny's wedding ?? Was she invited ?? We all know why , Jill, The Countess and Kelly were not invited; but Sonja is a sweetheart, and did nothing evil to Bethenny; especially on St. Thomas she stuck up for her.
Hi Andy......I would love for you to have about 5 fans of the realhouse wives to talk about the show and what do the fans think about the ladies. I am a big fan of the show i watch it and the repeats over and over. I feel like i know them like the back of my hand honey...Please have me on your show and 4 others so we as fans WE can talk the REAL TALK......love you and please email me.......
Hi Andy~ Absolutely love BGM! Bethenny is entertaining, smart and a lot of fun to watch. She is a hard worker and deserves the very best. It's fun watching her create her own empire! What a great show, I do hope that Sesaon 2 is secured and we the fans can anticipate following Bethenny on her journey. I agree with all the other posts that her wedding planner should get his own show. Let me tell you that after this past sesaon of RHONYC I vowed never to tune into BRAVO again, but I had to follow Bethenny and I am so glad I did.
did you get my post ? Dang ! if not love you Andy !
Pitch - Middle class housewifes = drama & ratings , plenty of new saying LOL
Bravo -Please be good to Andy need him !
i loved the wedding episode...but, where is the cotton candy fab-u-lous-sity !!! we need a pic !!!!!
ok I just got one question andy and i gotta know this and it will decide whether or not i watch housewives of DC is this show replacing the Atlanta Housewives?!?!!? I really hope not because if it is....I am so threw with BRAVO!!!!!
Andy, I thought it a bit strange that Housewives of New Jersey was supposed to be on Sunday from 8-9pm and it ended up to be Bethany Getting Married? I wathed it because other housewives were on and I wanted to see them but it seems sad BRAVO had to do that to get people to watch the show.
Andy, I LOVE Bethenny's new show...and her wedding [as you predicted] was beautiful...touching....loving...I cried, laughed & cried again. Only thing missing was Our Andy!!!! I cannot wait to see the next episode....Bethenny, Jason, Bryn...Julie & Max...and Jason's folks....adorable!!!! Hugs, # 1 Nana fm MD
I just watched Bethenny's wedding for the 2nd time and cried again. It was really beautiful. I agree that Shawn deserves his own show, and also a medal for dealing with a hormonal and crazy woman on her wedding. The two of them together were priceless.
Please tell Teresa to quit saying what a nice person she is when her agenda is not all that nice. This was a fundraiser, and even though it was over, this was not the place to go after Danielle. Teresa made herself look like a low life. Maybe she thought it was funny, but it wasn't funny to watch.
I wanted to kill Ashley. I don't believe that she was told her mom was attacked by Danielle. If someone told me my mom was attacked, I would be running over to my mom to see if she is ok, not to the attacker. Ashley needs to grow up, and her mother needs to get really tough with her. Her stepfather had to do what her mother should have done.
As for the Real Housewives of New Jersey, they are looking more mafiosa, and I sometimes have to remind myself this is not "The Sopranos." I do not think they represent the best in the italian community. I am not italian, but I grew up around them, and they were nothing like this. I admire Caroline for how she feels about her family, and the things she has told Albie to keep him going through this bad time, but she too, at times, sounds mafiosa to me in the things she says and especially in the way she says them. Dina and Jacqueline are not like this, but Caroline and Teresa both seem to keep the stereotype of italians going. They need to stop this. Also, I don't think many appreciated Teresa's making fun of the apts her husband has built - like she is too good for them. We are living in a society right now where people are overwhelmed by bills, lack of jobs, health care, etc., and many have lost their homes and more will lose their homes, and they will be living in apts like the ones Joe built.
I really liked Teresa when the show first started, but now I am seeing a side of her that is not nice, and is, in fact, very shallow and aggressive, but not aggressive in a good way. She needs to get back to that sweet person that she was. Right now she is acting more like a bully.
Will someone please get Danielle a shrink, or at least an evaluation of her mental status? She is not all there. I know she is a drama queen, but now she is acting like a total lunatic. I really think this woman has big issues, and she scares me in that she is friends with a bunch of hoods who may wind up harming one of the other castmembers. I should think this would be a concern of yours. I'm sure there must be someone out there who could replace her, but still keep some drama going. I think Danielle has gone too far.
