Happy 4/20

Andy Cohen explains why he grabbed Kelly Ripa's butt.

Before I begin: Tonight is the LIVE Millionaire Matchmaker reunion at 9 EST (Patti will go head-to-head with some controversial millionaires) followed by an AWESOME new episode of 9 by Design (even better than the first.).

I awoke to photos on the Internet of me grabbing Kelly Ripa's gorgeous butt on a red carpet.

Let me back up.... Last night, Miss Ripa and I co-hosted the Point Foundation Honors at the Pierre Hotel on the Upper East Side. It was a tres swanky affair with lots of power gays in suits and pretty girls in pretty dresses celebrating an amazing foundation that gives scholarships to LGBT kids who don't have the means to get educated themselves. We met some INCREDIBLE scholars with very inspiring stories.

The honories included the great gay civil rights leader David Mixner and 30 Rock star Jane Krakowski. The latter was paid tribute by her dreamboat co-star Cheyenne Jackson, who sang and was charming. Also on the bill were Susan Sarandon, Alan Cumming, Dave Koz, and my pal Harry Smith.

Mark Consuelos and I led the auction together and he bid on — and won — a Napa racing weekend sponsored by Audi. His wife had wanted the Paris trip, but c'est la vie. Kelly instead purchased a $13,000 scholarship for a kid in need. Those two are tres generous. 

On to the butt-grab.... I was getting dual kisses on both cheeks, the kosher meat in the middle of a RipaKrakowski sandwich, and so I did indeed grab both their butts so I could get in on the action. Both have what Lisa Wu Hartwell and I would call "juicy booties." So you only see me grabbing Kelly's butt, but I'd engaged Jane as well, and they both were OK with it and that was that. 

It seemed like the right thing to do at the time.

See you at 9 EST!
