Good morning. I'm up bright and early heading to Los Angeles for the annual TV critics gathering. I'm tired because we went out after the show last night with Ms. Janney and Mr. Hickey. Don't forget that tonight is Part 2 of the RHONY Reunion. At 10/9c on Bravo....
The weekend was gorgeous and a lot of fun. I'm on the cover of the new issue of HAMPTONS magazine with a lot of cool pics and a great interview written and conducted by my pal Mark Consuelos. So the magazine is kind of strewn all over the area and I saw it in random, funny places over the weekend, which was amusing.
Friday night was fun at the Palm in East Hampton and an overdue catch-up with Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy. They were in vacation-mode, which is something you don't see every day. The porch was hopping and we saw Hoda Kotb with her mystery man Jay, and Donny Deutch.
Saturday I parked it at Main Beach where the water was perfection. I threw a football and read Rob Lowe's new book. So at least one of those activities made me feel quite butch and for a moment I considered changing my name to Mandrew. Saturday night was a laugh-filled dinner at Sen with friends.
Sunday was another beach day, and then I braved very crappy traffic to narrowly make it home in time to go to the Clubhouse for Christmas in July with Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey. We played a really fun game involving Julie Chen as our narrator, live from her Chenbot lair, and then she came charging in the Clubhouse doors to surprise everyone and join for our After Show. You may wanna check it out HERE because she and I got into a really funny "But First" chenbot duet!
You should have done pix of strange random places you saw the magazine. It could have been "Random Andy sightings." lol!! Have a great week!!
Andy, Love you to death....very funny and sensetive at the same time. Where can I post questions for the New Jersey reunion. 1. To Kathy: After the christening, why didn't you call Teresa and make things right instead of acting like a brat at Melissa's Party? 2. To Melissa: Do you think your comments are smart? Do you know what a five second rule means? Alot of your smart ass remarks are terrible at best and hurt others than just Teresa, do you think of that? 3. To Caroline: Have you thought of writing your story? It would be so beneficial to the rest of us.... 4. To Teresa: You are older and should be more wiser, why can't you tell your husband to shut up when he make stupid comments about others? If he loves you he would keep his mouth shut, can you fix it? 5. To Jaqueline: Just love Chris. How long are you going to let Ashley act like a 2 yr old and not grow up? You and Chris should tell her that by the time she is 21, she has to find her own place and get herself a life. Ashley is nothing but disrespectful to Chris with her comments.
To All the Housewives, this show is still the best of the series of housewives, but I truly believe that you ought to buy the series and watch and see what the rest of us see as some things can be fixed to benefit yourselves. If you had it all over to do with what is your most memorable moments of this show?
Thanks Andy: To bad you don't make a surprise appearance next year just checking on your lovely ladies of New Jersey......
Andy baby! you should wear more short's on your show. The heck with the suit crap this is the next century. MORE SHORTS!!!!!!!!!!! Nice legs.
Andy Baby! WoW!!!!!! you need to wear more short's on your show. What the heck you been hiding from all of us your sexy legs. YUM! MORE SHORT's!!!!!!!! Off with the suit's.
This is the 3rd time I have wanted to ask you how do we send you questions for the reunion show? It's amazing that Bravo keeps not posting me for whatever reason.
The Jersey women are great......questions:
1. Kathy: Why didn't you call Teresa after the christening? 2. Melissa: It takes two.....Why did you allow your siblings to get involved in the problems with Teresa? Why make bad comments after the fact? Don't you want your children to be with their cousins? 3. Caroline: The bracelets were great and the proposal was even better, does Lauren now finally understand her brothers do love her? 4. Teresa: Can you finally put a muzzle on that husband of yours? He was always charming and I realize with money issues it makes things more difficult but he is not showing respect to you when he bad mouths people, whether they deserve it or not, how can you muzzle that? 5. Jaqueline: How and when will you realize that Ashley is just so spoiled rotten she can not understand to appreciate what kind of life you have provided with your husband....(Chris is a keeper). Ashley is torn between two families and yet never satified. When she is 21 will you and Chris finally kick her out and make her stand on her own 2 feet.
That's my questions Andy for now....we will see if the post
It seems odd to me that Joey doesn't realize his place in the Italian family. He is the first born son and Melissa gave him the first born grandson. So something is up with the Gorga Dad. And believe me, Teresa has stepped in to mend fences between parents and brother. That is why she continued to ask him to stay because of the parents. Teresa'a husband has no pull in an Italian family only acceptance. So Joey did something and the parents have oust him. Melissa knows this too as she keeps pushing for him to be with his parents in every episode. Teresa would be close to her mom and grandmother in an Italian family and loved by her father. But the Son and Grandson are the heritage.
Im a NICOLOSI of Italian heritage and I love Joe Gudice. He is just like my grandfather, father and uncles. And watching the gun episode was so like a typical Italian family. They always are in gangster "I'll take care of it" mentality. And when Joe opened the Italian Pizza place last season, that was so my dad! When i was young my father opened one for extra cash and to feed our family. Joe may not have the plush life right now but he has connections and he will be back on top. And my guess is there is a Gorga vs Gudice family business problem. And if the father in law is in the Gudice home than something is up. Joey Gorga chose the wrong side of the street and family to be friends with. Italians are all about the family. My guess, Joey is in business with someone "both families" don't trust.
Watching the second part of the RHoNY right now... Wow. It is super apparent that you are biased against the blondes. So disappointing to watch you let the brunettes go on and on while the blondes aren't allowed to speak, even going so far as to laugh when Cindy insults them.
Watching the second part of the RHoNY reunion. It's disappointing to watch you be so biased against the blondes. You let the brunettes go on and on without letting the blondes speak at all, especially Alex. Kinda disgusting.
I'm reading Rob Lowe's book too. That is a great picture of you on the Hampton's magazine...very rugged. I have a question...do you ever look at or feel differently about the housewives after a nasty reunion show? Also, do you think there should be a limit on the housewives meaning do you think it's time to change up the cast after a certain number of years? I feel like the first year they are all new and shiny and real...the second year, a little star struck by their new celebrity but still real but by the third or fourth year I feel it gets a little contrived and less real with the ladies trying to control their image or situations or they seem to try to make themselves relevant at any cost to stay on the show...What do you think about "term limits"?
How do you deal with those NY women? Just finished watching Reunion Part Deux. OY! Serious need for re-casting. I'm not sure I like any of them anymore. I've been watching the show forever, but think I may be over it. When you have to take a Tylenol there's a problem!
Love, love, love New Joisey...not sure about BH even though this ex-new Yorker lives in LA.
You rock Andy - love the Club House!
Andy - Just watched the NY reunion and it seemed like you are preferrential to the brunettes, and they were brutal. It was tough to watch they were so rude. Maybe there's more to the story but it seems you, yourself had little tolerance for Ramona and company.
Andy...you r the best host...ever! I really cannot take another minute of this mundane drool, the reunion show.....how sad...my daughter is 13 & has more common sense & dignity, than any so called "woman there". Luv u!... Too toxic to bear.....good luck!.....Ro
Oh, honey, you are SO deserving of a relaxing weekend, especially having survived that RHONY reunion!! A far better kind of "beachy-ness"! Good luck in LA this week!
Andy, you totally lost your ability to handle these horrible women. I feel like I need to take a shower after another one of your "reunions" Sorry, but they've got to go.
Alcohol was involved in watching part two of the RHONY reunion show. It worked quite well, I might add.
Seems to me you have two groups of ladies in NYC, the mean girls and the fun girls. I vote for fun and silly.
You know those defense costumes that a guy wears in those self-defense classes that women take? The ones with the helmet and all the padding? You might want to consider...I'm just saying.
You look really cute on the cover of the mag. Don't know how you braved the likes of the NY housewives 2 reunion. NOT FUN!!!!
Nice pic...Andy, I think it is time for the NY girls to retire. It is really bad when there isn't anyone you like anymore. Alex used to be the only sane person but she has been tainted by the other ladies. Time for a fresh look.
It would be hilarious if you would have that most famous housewife, Dame Edna at a reunion. This sage could offer needed wisdom and lighten up all the drama.
Why are viewers being tortured with non-stop Millionare Matchmaker all day all nite weekends weekdays primetime.Now I am boycotting the show on general principle when it starts its new season . Bring us Bethenny or any housewife franchise non stop 24/7 - Please stop the endless Patti it is driving alot of regular viewers away from your network. Thanks in advance..
