Andy's Guide To Style

Andy is inspired to make Tim Gunn proud.

Before I get "to it" I gotta mention how much fun I had with eliminated chef (and birthday boy) Brian Malarkey and Food and Wine Empress Gail Simmons on "Watch What Happens" last night.

I LOVED last night's episode. It was a total shocker, I thought, that Brian was sent packing. I was there the night of the (endless) Judges' Table debate about who should go home, and I can tell you it was not an easy decision for the judges.

Speaking of shows I love, tonight's episode of "Guide to Style" is a blast and features Nina Garcia! So inspired was I by Tim's show that I had my own "Guide to Style" moment at my home over the weekend, and I attacked my closet with the tenacity of Veronica Webb.

I put a lot of stuff in the "Giveaway" pile, but needed a taskmaster like Tim because I didn't get rid of nearly enough stuff. (And I kept far more than ten items; but I am a boy and boys need more clothes than girls!)

I had a last moment with an ill-fitting Tommy Hilfiger giveaway overcoat on the way to dump my stuff at Housing Works, the beneficiary of my giveaways and a great charity.  In a last minute act of desperation in the elevator to leave, I took this pair of red, white and blue Nike's OUT of the giveaway bag. I thought I was making a MAJOR mistake by dumping them, but Graciela made me put them back in. I will never see them again and I have no regrets!

I bought a vintage shirt in '95, wore it to a disco party once and to a fashion party twice and it never saw the light of day again. I had fantasies that this shirt would propel people to nickname me "Jigsaw". That never happened. (Wouldn't "Jigsaw" be a great nickname, though?) I love the pattern so much that I kind of wish I'd made a pillow or something out of the shirt, but I know that giving it away was the right decision. A certain pair of  low-cut boots got me through almost the entire '90s. They looked like faux motorcycle boots to me then, but now seem like lifts - perhaps most appropriate for a hipster elf. (I got many compliments on them in "the day".) They are at Housing Works now.

Would you believe that on my way back from Housing Works, I stopped at Marc Jacobs on Bleecker Street and bought some freakin' rain boots? Does anyone want to wager that they will never venture out into the rain, and that I will be giving them to Housing Works in 10 years?? I would bet the farm.....

Ask, Believe, Receive A Kiss From Andy

WWHL’s Research PA dishes on one seriously unique work week.

Hey guys! My name is Laura and I’m a Research Production Assistant here at WWHL. For the first 3 seasons on this unbeweavable show, I was the permanently glittered hands crafting the crazy fun props and prizes gifted to the guests. You name it, I’ve bedazzled it! (No but seriously: pacifier, pickle, ‘fro pick, condoms, whip, hookah, mannequin leg...the list goes on!) This past season, I closed down my crafting corner and now I have the pleasure of helping Megan, Christie, and Lindsey with research and interactive. Every night, I get to read all of your amazing questions for our guests and help make sure that Andy’s got a stellar selection on his cards. But who cares about me?! On to this crazy week of shows!

Sunday: Kim and Reza did NOT disappoint.  They served up some wig wearin’, stache sportin’, truth tellin’ realness.  Kim rocked “The Farrah” like only she can, not to be outdone by Reza’s gloriously quaffed upper lip.  I swear that man’s mustache is the 8th wonder of the world...

There’s something so refreshing about two guests truly unafraid to tell it like it is and it makes for great TV.  Reza musta had Santa on the brain ‘cause he couldn’t keep from dropping those Ho, Ho, Hos! And say what you will about Kim, but that lady just wants to be home with her hot hubby and you can’t hate a ho for that!  

Monday: Let’s be real for a second: I’m 23 and I’m not even gonna PRETEND to be ashamed that I used to drink up every drama filled minute of Laguna Beach and The Hills. So of course I was LIVING for Kristin Cavallari’s confession that it was a big pile of producer induced drama. Shocking? Eh, not really. Exhilarating for the teen in me? Abso-freaking-lutely. There’s no shame in my game, hunny!




Taylor Armstrong was on her absolute A-game and she totally wins for my favorite one liner of the week: “The only thing uglier than a drunk woman is a drunk woman’s 40-yr-old ass flying through the air!” And please let us not forget the arm wrestling. Oh my word, the arm wrestling.  

Epic.  

Tuesday: Truly, there are no words for the amazingness that was the luscious lipped Lisa Rinna and Jeff Lewis and therefore I simply gift you with this kisstacular clip:




You’re welcome. 

Wednesday: I really think that one of the things that is so unique about WWHL is our unexpected guest combos. You never know who will end up in those chairs!  So when I saw ‘Carmen Electra and Billy Ray Cyrus’ on the calendar, my achy breaky heart skipped an achy breaky beat.

When Carmen slinked into the studio I couldn’t believe how amazing she looked. Does that woman age?! She was KILLIN’ it all night long complete with sex appeal and sock bun. I admit I was bummed when Billy Ray plead the fifth on the Miley Ex-BF question. I mean really, who wasn’t hoping for a little juice on a JoBro?! But fear not! Carmen saved the day (and all the imaginary swimmers) by teaching Andy and Billy to patrol the beach, slow mo style!

Thursday: Apparently agelessness is going around because Jane Fonda looks SPECTACULAR. She and Sandra paired up for the perfect storm of hilarity and the show ended with my favorite new holiday tradition: Secret Sandra! 

And may I just add that the legendary, Oscar winning, fitness flaunting Miss Fonda went home wearing a menorah hat? So yeah, my life is complete.
