Andy Cohen attends opening night of The Normal Heart.

on Apr 28, 20110

OK before I get to last night, let me tell you about tonight! The Real Housewives of NYC head to the Hamptons and all hell breaks loose. It's a truly LOL episode that features Ramoment after Ramoment. And then I'm live at 11 with our Royal Wedding Spectacular featuring the Countess LuAnn and D.C.'s Cat. You will recall that Cat made out with Prince Harry a number of years ago so that makes her the most qualified Royal Expert around, methinks.

Speaking of Royalty, I ran into Sir Giggy in Manhattan yesterday afternoon!



What is it about that hairless pom that puts a smile on my face and makes all the blood rush to funny places? I don't know but if it's wrong I don't wanna be right.

So last night was opening of The Normal Heart on Broadway and it was one of the most profoundly moving evenings I've ever spent in a theater. You may know this is the play Larry Kramer wrote over 20 years ago documenting the early days of AIDS -- the efforts to organize within the gay community amidst panic and death and homophobia and hatred and ignorance. It stars Ellen Barkin (in her incredible Broadway debut), Joe Mantello (the great director who hasn't acted since his star turn in Angels in America in the early '90s), John Benjamin Hickey (who will break your heart as he transforms onstage), Lee Pace ('70s porn hotness with a second act monologue from which I never recovered), and Jim Parsons (hilarious and perfect.)

I don't have cable so I can't watch WWHL, but I always watch the clips online. I was a fan of Cat on RHODC but she was terribly rude to LuAnn from what I can see. LuAnn has her moments, but I find her generally harmless and the way Cat attacked her on the after show was embarrassing (for Cat). I thought LuAnn handled herself well, and I felt bad for both you and the Countess for being in that awkward situations. Come on, Cat....really?

Oh my gosh, I'd PAY money if you would move Cat to New York!! I laughed so hard last night at WWHL and had to rewind more than once to see her go head to head with Luann. LOVED IT and can't wait to see the after show :) I'm not sure what was funnier, hearing them go at it or watching your face when it was happening. You are hilarious and I'm addicted to all things Andy Cohen!!

Andy, I love you but.....for the RHWNY I miss Bethenny, or someone who can call it as it is. I'm sorry but these women need to grow up and be adults. This is my last night to stay up with these women they are all very interested in themselves and quite frankly they all need to get over themselves, as Bethenny would say. I still love you, I'm just taking a pass on your housewives.

Absolutely bored darling.

Ugh, what a boring and simultaneously annoying WWHL. Cat is so much fun, but that Royalty game making her answer questions for the Countess was terribly rude to Cat. And happy or unhappy, the Countess is an absolute pretentious and rude bore. I want that half hour of my life back. You should invite Cat to return with someone fun to make it up to her.

Thumbs up to the Donald for finally making Obama produce his birth certificated. Thumbs down for Obama releasing it and in the same day going on Winfrey's show. I guess he didn't have anything of importance to do that day. Just sayin'.

Nice Giggy photo! Please bring on more Bethenny! Love her show. BRAVO found a gem giving Bethenny' her own show. It's as good as Survivor!

hi Andy! Love, Love, Love! Would you please do us all a huge favor and not bring back RHOM. If you absolutely have to then please, pretty please replace Larsa and Cristy. Thank you! Signed, Your fellow RH viewers.

The Normal Heart sounds like it sends a message as well as being entertaining.i can only hope that plays like this make people have compassion and understanding for each other......I hope tonights RHONYC won't be "mean girls' like it has been.I used to like Sonja, but she annoyed me when she didn't want Simon to speak at the gay marriage rally.I want the 'nice" Sonja back and I think she owes Alex an apology!And Jill owes her one too for the catty remark she made at the wedding that the wedding was so far above Alex. Jillllllllllll! what.Are you becoming really snobby too?The RHONYC were always my favorites but they're starting to act classless, and that goes for you too, Countess Luann!
