Cosmic Tina

Andy Cohen talks about the fab Tina Turner concert.

It's an evening to go deep with the ladies of OC with another new episode of "Real Housewives". So let me know how that goes...

Yesterday afternoon - just after the sun had set - a buddy of mine called telling me to meet him on the corner of 49th and Fifth Ave to see something amazing. The sight was not Beyonce rehearsing for the Christmas Tree lighting, but rather Mercury, Venus and the Moon all in a triangle. As opposed to Beyonce singing in the Plaza, which happens all the time, this planetary configuration only goes down once every 44 years or something, so I was glad to see it. I was more glad to see the one and only TINA TURNER, who sold out Madison Square Garden last night.

You know what's worth 2 bills? Seeing that 68 year old sing "Proud Mary"...


Tina loves her sequined to-the-knee leggings and has them in several colors. She jammed through her catalogue of radio hits and covers. She made "Help" a ballad, "What's Love Got to Do With It" a sing-along, and "River Deep, Mountain High" a roof-raiser.

It is a big-ass show with massive stages and props and I don't have the fondness for "Thunderdome" that would require that older lady getting in her "Mad Max" wig and dress to sing that not-great song. I mean you can't believe the effort that went into bringing the Thunderdome-vibe to life. Maybe it's me...

We had a view of two celeb couples: Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes and Nick Ashford/Valerie Simpson. My eyes were on the "Solid as a Rock" duo. Near the very end of the show, during "Nutbush City Limits", Tina extends from the stage on a crane and sings her face off on top of the crowd. It was so freaking cool that I have to show you a couple pics...

After the concert it was a party for Lance Bass at Citrine. Brooke Burke was there and I still don't know why she's famous but I love that she's married to David Charvet. Hey, that alone is reason to be famous in my book. He left before I laid eyes on him though. We also ran into director Adam Shankman and went deep about the Atlanta Reunion with NYC "Real Housewife" Bethenny Frankel. And Lance was adorable as always.

This morning I supported Brit Brit (she's VERY SAD) by downloading Circus. And I got The Killers and some Tina.

CAB REPORT: Was it wrong of me to let two minivans pass me in favor of the sleek simplicity of Peter Nze's 5K42? I think not. Peter has a leadfoot and is a brake-jammer and I spilled tea in my crotch, and he doesn't care to take responsibility for his actions... BUT he did not pick his ear with his pen and he delivered me to 30 Rock in 15 minutes.
