Andy Cohen recounts his weekend in Cape Cod, and explains why Gretchen Rossi didn't perform on Watch What Happens: Live.

on May 23, 20110

I had a great, super-mellow, and Northeastern-y weekend with a group of friends in Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. I felt like a combo of a lobster roll and a piece of saltwater taffy!

Last night was interesting. Kara DioGuardi (I know I pronounced her name five different ways, and for that I apologize) was initially, I think, wondering "WTF am I doing here?" and then fully immersed herself in the experience. I dig her, and Platinum Hit is a whole new kind of competition show for us. I'm excited for it to premiere. 

To answer your questions about what happened to Gretchen's performance, sadly she doesn't have promotional rights to perform her own song, which seems unusual and didn't become clear until the weekend. We tried to come up with another performance, but it was not to be. In any case, it was good having her on after what I thought was a really powerful episode of O.C. My heart was breaking for Vicki and Donn last night. That was some really sad stuff happening.

Tonight is the big Posche fashion show at the Brownstone! And the return of Kim D.! And Kim G.! And I'm live at 10 p.m. EST with Teresa and Jacqueline!

Fuuuuun!

I love you Andy!! You are Bravo TV!! I think all the ladies on the OC and New York talk about each other, judge each other and then throw a fit when they find out that they have been talked about. They can all dish it out but can not take it. Gretchen had her chance tonite to really say she was wrong but she just could not admit it and her popularity is going down because of that. Love love love you Andy!!!

Andy, you get my mozel of the week for pronouncing Teresa's last name correctly on WWHL last night! (Thanks for owning up to mispronouncing Kara's..) My east coast paisan's need to get with the 21st century. People today can actually pronounce Italian last names in most cases. Decades ago my East Coast Sicilian papa changed his last name legally because no one could pronounce it. Times have changed, show some Italian pride. Kim DEE PAYola....really??? Mozel to you, Andy!

Andy, Teresa seemed to be bothered with something. Jacqueline tried to break the ice with the ham, but you can tell that she was not totally there. My heart goes out to her.

Thanks for explaining about Gretchen's song.....hope Slade didn't have anything to do with the contract. Looking forward to the OC reunion except I don't think i'm going to like the way Tamara and the whole wine throwing in Jeana's face comes off. Tamara seems to be playing to the cameras a lot this season.

Andy, Please ask Jacqueline if she and Caroline are still close with Dina. They do not seem to support one another's functions on twitter anymore. Hope all is well with the Manzos/Lauritas!
