Well we tried to put on a fun Royal Wedding Spectacular, but there wasn't much chemistry between my guests -- and I'm not talking about me and the Beefeater. (Or me and Giggy for that matter!)
I got the sense during the show that Cat found no humor at all in the Countess being the "expert" in our little royalty game, and all hell broke loose a few minutes into the After Show, which felt more like a reunion gone haywire. While Cat was telling LuAnn how full of it she is, my eyes are watering like crazy so it looks like I'm crying. I'm not.
You have to see this to believe it:
I just watched the after show. OMG! I think Cat was a little tanked, but wow, she really spoke her mind. I think it was funny, even though, I do like LuAnn a lot more this season. Who ever said that this season was going to be boring is wrong wrong WRONG! And, by the way, my favorite part of the housewives series is you Andy. I look forward to Watch What Happens as much as the episodes. You are so funny and your reactions are so genuine. I just love you!
Love, love, love Cat's tell it like it is personality. I only wish Lisa Vanderpump had been on your show instead of LuAnn. They would have made for a better mix.
I get why Cat was annoyed with LuAnn's "full of it", pretentiousness and assuming things trying finish Cat's thoughts. She was right on the mark about LuAnn. And even though it might seem inappropriate that Cat said what she did, LuAnn did open the door asking Cat to make assumptions about Alex based on the show. Too bad Lulu didn't get the response she wanted. Go Cat!
I miss seeing Cat and wish she were on another Real Housewives show. Maybe she could fit into NYC...the blonds could use her... or possibly Beverly Hills?
This is why we love you Andy! That aftershow was great how you let it go on for a little while. Cat is saying what so many of us think. Luanne says terrible things about people in her interviews-(esp. about Alex who is actually a nice person) all the while smiling and using that phony hoity toity accent. She's just mean.
love your shows Andy. You make me laugh and smile everyday you are on.
who cares about cat, i didn't on her show and still don't now that she is on NO show. Team Countess Always!!!
Andy, Just got through watching last night's episode as well as the aftershow, and I have to say that it was a perfect illustration of why Real Housewives of New York continues to be popular, and Real Housewives of DC is over! I have watched every episode of both shows, and the Countess remains my favorite of all housewives on all versions. Sure, she has her opinions, but she really does exhibit class in all of her face to face encounters. Cat was extraordinarily cruel during her show, and has shown few likable qualities that make her sympathetic in any way. The show last night was a perfect example. She couldn't handle playing the game where the Countess was shown to judge her, and she lashed out instead of turning it around in a lighthearted way, as the Countess would have done. She should be grateful that she was even asked to be on this show, considering that the Real Housewives of DC is cancelled!
The Countess and the Cat.
That Cat is no lady ! M E - O U C H !
Once again the Countess shows that good manners prevail.
Score : Cat - 0 Countess - 1
Andy, I just got through watching last night's episode and the after show, and it is a perfect illustration of why the Countess has class and Cat has none! I have watched every episode of every Real Housewives franchise, and the Countess remains my favorite of all the housewives. Sure, she has her opinions, but she never states anything in a mean way, and certainly not in any face to face encounters. Cat was extremely cruel on her show, and last night was no different. Just because she didn't like the game where the Countess appeared to judge her, she lashed out instead of turning it around in a humorous way as the Countess would have done. Thank you Andy that we don't have to see Cat any more!
If I sat down and watched three consecutive hours of the NY Housewives then had to sit next to LuAnn while drinking, I'd probably act the same way.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE move Cat to New York!! I cannot express how much I loved Cat telling Luann just how it is. YAY CAT!! Amazing, hilarious, and right on point :) I love all things Andy Cohen!!
Cat is the real deal! She needs to be on RHNY because someone has to stop the two faced, back stabbing, petty dramatics. Thank you Andy for letting Cat say what viewers have been feeling for years about the countess of pretense.
That was one of the most embarrassing aftershows to watch. Painful. I love me some Cat, but she was really out of line. Or ballsy. Or both.
I think the difference between LuAnne and Cat are the differences between the British and the French.....They view royalty from vastly different prespectives. Cat was born to it.....LuAnn acquire it later in life
She may not be my absolute favorite, but if I had to pick ONE housewife that I had to trust, it would be Cat, without a doubt.
I thought Cat was way out of line. I watch the After Show for all the fun banter between guess not to feel uncomfortable.
Hi Andy, this is my first time commenting. LOVE YOU and your talent for putting on such great programming. WWHL is the best..I can't decide more whether I like it when the show is sans housewives or not, because the last two shows were great. I think you should revive the Battle of the Network Stars, but for the Housewives. I think it would be hysterical to see these womans (ha ha - DS) team up together to battle the other franchises. You can find different type of challenges, as they don't strike me as the obstacle coarse type, though that would be great to see, and give the proceeds to charity. Just an idea. Anyway, have a great weekend and have fun recovering from last night!
Hugh Fan... Last night's "Watch What Happens Live" with LuAnn and Cat...it was so uncomfortable to watch at times...you could cut the air with a knife it was so thick. Not sure why LuAnn seemed "Pomp and Circumstance" or why Cat seemed like she didn't want to be there. Could there been an "Elephant in the Room"? There was no mention of the RHODC returning or not?? Who knows...The show had great promise but it didn't...Anyhow, it was sure great to see Giggy!
I'm not a huge fan of Cat or LuAnn, but Cat was exactly right! LuAnn does seem to be everyone's friend when she's in their company, but she talks crap about them in her interviews! She couldn't stand Kelly when she first started on the show, her or Jill, and last season they appeared to be BFF's! Way to call her out Cat!
oh Andy, you gotta give us more details about last night. That was so uncomfortable but you and Giggy handled yourselves quite well.
I loved the way Cat Ommanney shut Andy and LuAnn deLesseps down when they tried to make an issue of her kiss with Prince Harry. No way was she going to let anyone drag her down that cougar road. I wish more women from this country would do the same.
oh my gosh! I just loved that Cat showed how irritated she was. It was rude but I guess she just had to blow the countess' cover!
Right On CAT!! Your rock,as they say. Luann is like the very glamourous,gorgeous, sophisticated aunt that little girls love to have come visit. But when they grow up and find out the real deal-its all very disappointing.
Although it was uncomfortable to watch. (must have been even worse being there) Cat's assessment of LuAnn was spot on. LuAnn cntinually makes vey nasty comments, then expects people to apopogize to her when she feels offended. The Countess routine is getting very tiring
Wow! I really liked Cat on the DC show. I like how she calls it like she sees it, however, I don't think she was right this time. LuAnn doesn't seem to be getting into any of the trouble this season and I'm starting to like her. Also, it seemed like Cat might have been taking this whole Watch What Happen's Live taping a little too seriously. Really? Since she is the only Brit, she is the only one allowed to play the game? Like Andy said - no sense of humor!!
I loved Cat on WWH. It was the best show that you have ever had Andy. Cat's tell it like it is attitude was so refreshing. Luann is so full of herself, and Cat let her know it. The best would be to have Cat on HWONY so that she can give Jill a little of that I got your number business. Loved, loved, loved the show and Cat made it. I agree it would have been better to have my favorite housewife Lisa on the show with Cat. But, I so enjoyed the fireworks. I think Ms. Countess has meant her match.
I watched the show and then the after show this morning. Cat seems to think she is the expert on all and everything English/British and maybe she is. But I still think she is a bit rude. I believe in keeping it "honest" but there is a thin line between trying to be honest and being just plain rude. I was embrassed for LuAnn. Cat seems to delight on calling everyone out. If she is so unhappy with Bravo then don't accept the invites. If she's so unhappy with Americans and their 2-faces... well you get the picture!
I thought Cat was way out of line and rude. Andy had LuAnn on for her 'Countess' expertise not to be drag through the mudd. I love Watch What Happens Live for the fun and light-hearted banter between guest and not to feel uncomfortable.
I am now a Cat lover! I actually like LuAnn, but she had it coming! I think what really got Cat going was LuAnn "informing" Cat that Prince Harry was way too young for her and implied that Cat is older than she says. Meow!
Your reaction after all that was just PRICELESS! I laughed so hard I cried!
I never watched the DC housewives, so I didn't know who Cat was until last night. I like a person that speaks their mind! I must say she's got LuAnn's number;)
Sometimes things don't go the way we want it too. This is one of those times to bad they didn't think about how you wanted to have fun and thought more of how Cat doesn't like LuAnn. It was a royal wedding. I love, love, love watching your show as much as I love watch real housewives and top chef. I think you are great and love how funny you are. Me and my twin try to make sure we watch all your episodes even if we have to catch up with them late at night. Keep being real and telling it like it is. I think you should of invited someone who is Cat's cup of tea. LOL, hope next episode is more light and funny for you. p.s. I believe you about your eyes since my eyes get watery during this time of the year. I have bad allergies that make my eyes itchy, watery, and sometimes dry. Love Ya
Cat should definitely start blogging on the RHoNY! Would love to hear more of her opinions!!!
Of course, really, really, really would like to have Bethenny blog too, but she's probably too busy being a high-powered business woman & stuff. ;o)
Andy i really think that you and bravo should put cat on the new york housewives it would be the best show that you would have. Just think about it.
I may not agree with everything that LuAnn does however I was definitely on her side during this conversation gone loco. All Cat did was throw insults and give no examples. How many times can you lash out at someone without actually explaining anything…..apparently 16. I think Cat was just irked that she had to answer questions about the Queen from someone born in the USA.
So funny that LuAnn claims to have been gentrified by European royalty when she said "alls" on the show Thursday night. I was dying for Cat to bring that up! Sad that LuAnn doesn't realize that an individual with true class would never talk about herself in such a self important bourgeois way.
hell no don't bring them back thats what Cat wants. She clearly wanted trouble. This was not the forum for Cat's talk
I can understand where Cat was coming from. She is from England, we know she has actually met at least one member of the royal family, yet LuAnne is being considered the "expert." LuAnne did not have a very good answer when Cat asked her what made her such an expert. LuAnne looked uncomfortable and sort of stammered when she said that it came from living the life for sixteen years...Not really forthcoming with anything specific.
