Today is going to be fun. I'm taping Late Show with David Letterman this afternoon and then, while you're watching the RHNJ premiere, I'll be on a plane to Los Angeles for the O.C. Reunion. I am very excited to be on Letterman! How did this happen? I hope I don't royally screw it up. It could go either way.
Tonight's 90-minute Jersey premiere is fantastic. The drama is essentially localized to two families now, Teresa's and Caroline's, and so it is thick with tension and also somehow relatable. Tonight starts with a BANG. We literally couldn't fit it into an hour. Woah. Check out Jay Mohr's blog tomorrow; it's so funny.
The weekend was fantastic. Friday night was a late night at Bar Centrale with a crowd that seemed to all go from their respective shows to the bar. Saturday was work all day and then Book of Mormon that night. I liked the show a lot. It's really hard to walk into something that's been heralded as the funniest thing ever in the history of smiling, and have it live up to that description. Alas, for me, it did not but I really liked it and thought it was really good!
We headed to Tiny's after the show; that's Sean Avery's new restaurant in Tribeca. I like that guy a lot for a whole lotta reasons, and so it's always fun hanging out with him. I don't know how I got talked into going to Greenhouse at the very end of the night but I did, and I went. Oh lord.
OK so wish me luck and I'll see you tonight!
Loved the aftershow with Laurie and Jeana. It reminded me of why I started to watch the Real Housewives...
The current versions have strayed so far away from what I loved...looking at real women, their families and respective drama that comes with it. With the exception of Beverly Hills and on some levels New Jersey, the relationships between the women seem manufactured, the drama manufactured and there is very little time spent on the women and their family dynamics. That's why the first season of these shows were such hits. They were organic, seemingly real and not toxic. You can only watch nasty sniping for so long...
Bring back the old format. As you can see from the RHOBH, it works!
Hi Andy my sweet!! I thought it was fantastic to see Jeana and Laurie last night!! I recently submitted a question asking whether there was going to be a "Where are they now" type of show. Thanks for asking the OC alumni about themselves and their children. Can't wait to watch those wild, wonderful women of New Jersey tonight!! Happy Monday!!
andy, like what your doing.watch your shows all the time. overnight the news stated that you would be replacing the WHOLE rhnyc! that is a great idea after what 4 seasons these are the most unlikeable group of women on tv! the new girl might be okay but she may notbe enough to cover for the others.
good luck on letterman i'll be watching
Good luck on David Letterman .The only reason I'll watch him is to see you.otherwise I never watch him at all.You're a real celebrity Andy and such a charmer too!Get used to it!
You rocked on Letterman. You could tell he enjoyed having you on. I'm sure you'll be invited back faster than you can sing the Gilligan's Island theme song in German. Bravo, Andy!
Loved you on Letterman, Andy! You were darling! I felt like I was watching a personal friend on the show. You were great.
Andy; I watched Letterman on Monday you were Brilliant!! You sold our "Housewives" and I'm sure there will be quite a few more viewers on Thursday. I love the "Watch What Happens Live" show.
Go Andy Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope it's true that you're replacing all the NY Housewives. The loss of Bethenny shows just how boring the rest of them are - she was holding up that show all on her own.
But when you recast, please recast with people who are true New Yorkers (ie; people in the arts, people who are smart, people who are creating things - not just boring women who marry money.) In short, cast it with people like Bethenny.
