I Am Obsessed With Lisa Rinna

Andy Cohen discusses his recent obsession with celebrity lips.

Not because she's embarked on the journey of a lifetime on "Dancing with the Stars". Not because she's married to Harry Hamlin. I certainly am not mired in nostalgia for her character "Billie" from "Days of our Lives". And, though I am crazy for it for the wrong reasons, not because "Soap Talk" is the only show on television with the energy of an infomercial - that's actually not an infomercial.
It's the LIPS.

What are they made of? Where did they come from? What do they feel like, taste like and smell like? How much money goes into their care and maintenance? What is it like to be around Lisa Rinna's lips?

Even when she's dancing her butt off or telling a revealing story about her home life to her "Soap Talk" co-host Ty Treadway (that's his name, see), I cannot take my eyes off those gamey mouthpaws. I want to grab them hard and never let go!

I saw "Match Point" last week and it's a really good morality tale and arguably Woody Allen's best movie in a decade. But it, too, is all about lips. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and Scarlett Johansson have two of the most perfect, stunning sets of lips you'll ever see. Even if you're not a Woody Allen fan, it's worth the ten bucks just to watch those gorgeous smackers projected several stories high. It's especially fascinating to watch how Mr. Rhys-Meyer's lips come together when he closes his mouth. They are so plump that when they meet, the fleshy upper lip folds into a blatant oddly horizontal crease! Bravo, JRM!

Once you start paying attention to people's lips it's hard to stop.

Jessica Simpson was rumored recently to have done some form of lip augmentation. US magazine reported that her makeup artist talked her into it as a way to help her get over Nick. It certainly added an extra pout and focal point to her face, but may I also recommend therapy and time to heal her wounds?

Nancy Grace's lips are like a very painted and incredibly expressive animated world unto themselves. Her producers might consider the following sweeps stunt: put black-light lipstick on Ms. Grace's lips, turn off the lights in the studio, and broadcast a "lips only" version of Nancy Grace on her soapbox! Say Grace!

Oprah says she never puts just one color lipstick on hers. She blends up to three colors. As the years have passed and the show has slowly taken over the world, Oprah's lips more and more have become a sideshow unto themselves. Why go to a museum when there's a Van Gogh on that lady every day at 4?

The fact is that lips are white-hot and it's about time that people get a little bit of credit for them. Certainly Mr. JRM and Ms Scarlett J deserve SAG awards simply for their ballet of la lip. And no matter how talented a dancer she is or isn't, surely it's worth voting for Lisa on "Dancing with the Stars" just to make those beefy gills queen of the dance hall.

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.
