Happy New Year to my Jewish brothers and sisters and the people who love them. Speaking of Jewish people, Simon Helberg from The Big Bang Theory is on WWHL Sunday with Caroline Manzo! He's a huge RHONJ fan; we met at the EW Emmy party where he made a quite compelling case to come by the Clubhouse. It's going to be great!
I've gotten many tweets and posts wondering what went down with the RHONJ reunion this week. All I can say is don't believe everything you read and hear, and that all will be revealed soon. We shot a spectacular reunion show on Wednesday, I'll tell you that. Much was revealed.
I'm out at the beach working on my book this weekend. Last night I drempt I was at my book party and it was something of a disaster. And so that's called putting the cart before the horse. My book party will indeed be a disaster if I do not finish it! I am enjoying this process though...
Have a great weekend and I'll see you live on Sunday night!
Hey Andy, I hope that what has been on blogs about Jacqueline may be leaving the show is not true. She is an amazing woman and a adorable person, wife and mother. She is the most loveable person besides Carolyn. I would understand tho if she does leave, Jacqueline is a person of reason and for Teresa to sling so much mud and never grow from talks with Jac and Carolyn is unreal. Jacqueline has the most loving personality of anyone. I love her as a mom and wife and friend. If gossip is true about Teresa she should be the one to go. Her attitude this season has been terrible. She can not hear anyone except herself. Teresa has done herself in by not forgiving, she can talk family all she wants but she does not want family, only her husband and kids. Get that book done.
Hi Andy! Please tell me why Bravo has not given any thought to building a cooking/baking show around Kathy from RHONJ?? That lady can real cook a gourmet meal and her baking is just amazing! But let's be honest, don't you think it's time to get rid of some old blood on the show that just isn't working anymore, and add some new fresh faces into the mix? I love the Housewives shows. Sometimes all a show needs is a little fresh blood to make it fresh again. Although I will miss seeing Alex McCord on the RHONY. She and Simon should have their own show. Time to mix it up a bit, don't you think? And the Manzo! Love the family! Someone give them their own show!! God bless!
GO NJ, and YAY for Simon Helberg...love him! Looking forward to the NJ reunion, but must also take a moment to say how HAPPY I am that the NYC cast is being re-vamped, updated and overhauled. While I might be a protector of the weak and am sad to see Kelly go (who is the most hip and stylish of ALL housewives), I am jumping with JOY that Simon and Alex will be gone. They never added any compelling scenes to the show, especially Simon, who was a major disruption throughout.
the dream is a result of your anxiety. the book will be great and i sure do hope the publisher sells it for an i-reader from the start!!! wow, it got cool here in the 'natti. can't wait to run after work. it'll be reshreshing. speaking of the jewish holiday, i recall my high school days. i am not jewish. half of my classmates were. whenever there was a jewish holiday, the non jewish kids went to school but we did not have class. all we did was go to a series of all day study halls. that seems like forever ago but even then i loved being able to catch up on all of my schoolwork.
Happy New Year Andy. I don't know how you put up with the drama, but I sure love watching you in WWHL. You are just hysterical!!! Keep up the good work, steer clear of Teresa's back hand and keep on doin' what you're doin'!!!
Happy Holidays Andy Cohen! You are very cool, and such a fun host on WWHL, not to mention superb as a Reunion-question-prodder. Always look forward to you.
Happy New Year to you Andy Cohen!!! Hope you have a wonderful holiday. Don't know what the heck is going on the RHONJ, but gotta tell you, I stopped watching it after Melissa and her vulgar husband came on. I'm sorry, but I for one, find his behavior vulgar and not funny...how many times does anyone have to hear about his damn sex drive! And Melissa...OMG, why would you let yet another housewife try to launch a singing career. Caroline...cannot handle her holier than thou personality any longer. Theresa - what can I say...she has issues, but I truly believe it was very stressful for her to tape with a brother (so-called brother) and jealous sister-in-law of hers. Kathy...brings nothing to the table. Poor Jacqueline, having to air out all that dirty laundry with her daughter - way too much personal issues going on to enjoy this show anymore. I won't even get into the fact that these people give Italians everywhere a bad name. I, for one, am a proud, professional, intelligent and well spoken Italian woman who refuses to watch such negative stereotypical behavior of my heritage. Oh please say you are recasting this franchise...too much drama for my liking. Not enjoyable anymore. Lastly, thanks so much for listening to the fans and letting that drama queen, mean girl Jill Zarin off the show. Her 15 minutes of fame was over 4 years ago! Andy, darling, you need to rethink this entire franchise...getting too nasty for my liking (AND I KNOW BECAUSE I JUST WROTE THAT BRAVO WON'T POST, BUT PLEASE DO)! I tuned into the original RHOOC because it was interesting to see how the West Coast gals in OC lived, and there was not nearly as much drama as the rest. Come on Andy, be kind to us women!
Andy.....I really want Alex back....She was one of the original wives and I one of the original viewers. We go together! Can't have one without the other.......please......bring back Alex.
Happy New Year Andy! Love, love, love all of the housewife shows! And your Watch What Happens Live is the best!! I hope I get to see you sometime in person out in the Hamptons! Can't wait for your book!
jamviewerLI I agree 100%!! I've been thinking the same with 1 exception. It was wise that they let Kelly go also.
So glad to have you back Andy! You don't need such a long break though! Two weeks off is plenty! Next year, make it shorter or get someone to fill in please! It's just not the same to watch a Real Housewives show and not follow up with you! Just think, in 10 years, maybe there will be no more RH or WWHL (God forbid). You'll say to yourself, why didn't I milk it for every second while I had the chance! Strike while the iron is hot Andy!! (who am I your mother?) Please don't have Patti on the show again either. I can't stand her. She couldn't even make her own marriage work and she thinks she knows it all! I hate that! Thrilled not to have to see Jill, Cindy, and especially Kelly's faces again!! Please don't bring them back for any reason! Sorry to see Jac. go. She was probably the most down to earth housewife of all. I see Ashley got her way and is in Ca. Good luck to her. I'm sure she didn't pay her way there. Teresa and Joe are really bringing the show down though. No class! I feel so bad for their kids! The wedding thing kills me...are they kidding?? Didn't they see Jon & Kate? Seems to me that people who do those things are hiding something. As for Melissa and Joe...I think they are funny but, enough with the sex talk constantly! Asking another guy to fondle your wife isn't cool no matter how you slice it. I don't know what the big "Jersey" attraction is anyway. Who wants to live there...or even visit? Dump them and bring a show to Boston where they have some class!! I'd love to do the show but, I'm not rich! So, if you want to do a show about middle class housewives (I am actually married and have a child and a home...which is more than I can say for some of the Real Housewives!) let me know and we'll talk!! Love you Andy! You crack me up! Your show is awesome...especially love the drinking game and the other games you play. So ridiculous but hysterical just the same! Good luck with your book!
Hi Andy, Today I have read that Jacqueline and Caroline are leaving the show. I knew this since the very beginning when Melissa and Kathy started working with the Housewives of New Jersey. I just knew it. When a person has problems with family or friends no one should get involve. Just say your opinion if it is asked, but that is it. I like Kathy, but I do not like Melissa. Teresa has no patience with both of them and when she knew that Caroline and Jacqueline became friends with Melissa and Kathy that was the end of the friendship. I am sad. I do not thing that Teresa, Melissa and Kathy will resolve their problems. There is a lot of envious and jealousy between Teresa and Melissa. Take care Andy. You are "Bello, Bello, Bello" (handsome)!!!! God Bless you, Yolanda Garcia Berdecia San Juan, Puerto Rico
Andy Love you, can't wait for your book! Andy I am a faithful bravo viewer but BH and NJ have taken nasty turns. Like I need to wash my hands dirty. Some drama and conflict is relatable and fun, but these women are to much. I simply wish there were a few intelligent, stable and successful women on Bravo. Patti and Zoe(very talented) are narcissists and don't exactly do much for women. Oh, and when people say that Caroline M. is the voice of reason and so brilliant>>>? I want to go to their house and see who turned the TV on for them, they didn't figure that out. Whew I will be waiting for Bethany's book on "forgeting 2 eat" bless her heart though, I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Thx for listening.
Hi, Andy I love watching you and am always wondering what you really thinking on wwhl and the housewives reunion shows! I must say I am pretty disgusted with all the rhonj drama. Are these people insane? We all have to choose a way to be in this world and hopefully it will be with integrity, honesty and all of the things needed to sustain us. Twitter wars, supposed set ups, family fighting. We are all watching but none of it impacts OUR lives. What really matters is if these people can live with themselves. Can their children really be proud of them? What ever happened to keeping your mouth (and Twitter) shut, taking the highroad and letting the truth find it's way on it's own. So sad for these people.
caroline really threw theresa under the bus this season i think as kathy an mellissa sucked up and kissed caroline butt she went n there side ,i not going to repeat every nasty thing melissa and kathy have said about theresa so un fair and shame on caroline and ex viewer
Andy..next time Caroline is on the show ask her why no one ever wears those expensive ugly braclets that they had made. They were way too expensive for what they looked like. I have been watching the shows and no one ever wears them. Thank you for all you do, we love you!
I adore you, adore so much about the shows, but .... and there is a huge but now, I am not liking what is going on with some of what feels like bullying with RHWNJ. I have been reading the twitter's and watching the Manzo Boys rip Theresa apart, oh yes, in the guize of being funny. I thought last night WWHL was mean spirted. Theresa was set up & if you didn't know how Caroline felt about Theresa you sure did with the cheerleading with your other guest. Uncomfortable Television and really to give someone that platform to bash another person, well...I am going to have to give last night's show...The Jackol of the Week!
Happy Holidays Andy! Reading the comments from your fans.. 1st I love you tootoo! 2) People mention recasting NJ. I agreed with NY & axing Jill Zarin, but RHONJ, let go of Melissa & Kathy. I agree that Kathy does not bring much to table, and Melissa never had good intentions from the beginning; befriending Kim G??? America loved Theresa in Season 1 & 2. Let her redeem herself by recasting Melissa & Kathy. Thank you for all you do! You allow your viewers to have a voice & we appreciate that!
Hi Andy, my comments NEVER seem to get posted, but I really hope you read this. I'm a major Bravo fan, and it's pretty much the only channel I watch on a daily basis. I especially loved the housewives, however lately it just doesn't seem like such a guilty pleasure anymore! I've been watching since the first episode of RHOOC, and it was fun to peak into the "over the top lives" of housewives everywhere. Now it seems like we are watching women pander to the lowest expressions of themselves, just to get face time or sell their products. The RHOONY were by far the most unpleasant to watch and I'm so glad Bravo cleaned house the way they did. But PLEASE reconsider the direction the rest of the franchise seems to be going in. It's getting depressing to see children, families and friendships torn apart!! I have two teenager daughters and my life is stressful enough. I need me some escapism please. On a positive note, I LOVE you, and everything you do! You seem like such a authentic person, but I'm so curious to know if being part of all this drama and nonsense ever bothers your conscience and how you reconcile that with your "inner Oprah"!!!
Hi Andy - You have to be thinking that it may be time to retire these RHO... Everything is about being mean, aguing and fighting. It actually make brings tension to the people watching it and I hear fans losing interest daily. The RHONY are the perfect example - the fighting just turned everyone off and getting new HW just prolongs the pain. The OC is these younger girls with no depth. Atlanta is just a brawling mess and NJ is just getting sad and boring.
Is it me or has anyone else noticed how raunchy the NJ Housewives show is? Theresa's brother, Joe, he has a thing about proving how big he is down there and has no qualms about how much he shows of himself. When the Joe's get together all they do is use foul language and talk about body parts. I used to love this show but it has gotten so raunchy that it is unbearable to watch any more. Bravo, these shows need to get cleaned up. I think you are losing a lot of viewers.
Please reconsider and bring back Alex. Regarding RHONJ, I can't believe that you put up with Teresa and her husband. I wish you would fire them both. This show is not good for the kids.
To the Viewers, If you caught the After show with Caroline, it was mentioned that the RHoNJ is taping season 4. They did this it a little after the doing the reunion. Uhhhm! I know a lot was going on with Teresa's family, but really. Too soon for the next season. I really think that making/acting like Teresa, Jac and Caroline are no longer friends I don't want to watch that dynamic. I really feel that Teresa's family can bring genuine entertainment with their craziness and fun. Bravo take some tips from Tia and Tamara show. It doesn't always have to be drama with arguing and fighting. I think that every time RH is on TV Bravo has to go over the top. I love RHoNj, but I will not watch if its all about fighting and arguing for nothing - just for TV. I know with all the reality shows, it dumb down great TV shows and now most of TV shows are the same. I was dow to two RH (RHoNY and RHoNJ). I will tune in to see what it will be about if all they do is argue about nothing, I will no longer watch. I also feel the same way about RHoNJ. I am totalling tuning out RHoAtl. If I have to watch reality, I will look for shows like Tia and Tamara. RHoAlt fighting made it that all the RH shows have to pump it up with craziness. I think the RH shows are also about promoting themselves and they have all changed. This is why I am now down to only watching two for now. Bethanny show is okay it is not the same type of drama.
Hi Andy happy new year to u. Let me start by saying Caroline covering up for jaqueline why because jaqueline is the only cast member that in the past has a twitter war with cast members their fans and only wants people to kiss her butt.We the viwers have our say how we see the show going.They want to get paid by bravo but do not want to be told the truth on blogs (jaqueline) she is the one that open her big mouth and said she wants nothing to do with the show and she did it where? twitter.
Teresa has her fans all of them have fans why are they trying so hard to put down the one that has all her books #1 because they did not do what she did writting a book.People married into money then wnat to say do tis do that she needs to get a life.
I watched RHONJ to escape from reality and watch them in nice houses, enjoying what seemed like a fun life. Now it's too stressful to watch. Andy- please dont ask Melissa or Kathy to come back. It's uncomfortable to watch the show with them on.
Hi, Andy! Regarding the "Housewives," if I didn't know better, I'd swear you're having the last laugh. . .
All the Housewives shows have ridden themselves off the 'tracks.' Bethenny is the only original cast member that has survived the train wrecks..She and Jason 'ring true,' and a pleasure to watch..Andy's best show yet..Glad to see so many others have been fired..Clean up N.J., N.Y., Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Orange County..
For the first time ever I did not enjoy WWHL with Caroline and that weird guy. Please don't have him on again and Caroline should be ashamed of herself. She has changed and not for the better....Love you Andy and hope to continue watching you.
Along with everyone else, I must say you are a-mazinggg...Now to the not so amazing..
What is going on with Jacqueline? I am so dissappointed in her and the way she is bashing Teresa..Honestly, I really loved watching the friendship between Jacqueline and Teresa..I can understand that it is frustrating to support your friend in her family fueds, but to then turn on your best friend like that? I thought friendship was unconditional?
Caroline was my other favorite and I have to say she is becoming my least favorite with her bitterness. All season has been passive-aggressive comments about Teresa the whole season. Why? Are you jealous of the attention?
Melissa is coming around and I am liking what I see with the Gorgas and Guidice getting along, I want to see more of the family enjoying time together. Both families have such great energy and just them alone could carry the show.
Kathy, mmm..she needs to quit trying to be such a victim. She infused herself into the fight and now wants to have her own fight to get camera-time. Im sorry, but she was implying that Teresa is not a good mother and that was wrong.
Now Greg..I hate him..He is a horrible person..An instigator with the Melissa and Teresa fued, and makes it blatantly known that he thinks Teresa is trash..He needs to get a life of his own and quit getting in the middle of family disputes.
I honestly love Lauren. I wish she would feel good about herself. She is a beautiful girl with a great heart. Believe in yourself and stop thinking you are not as good as the others, you are gorgeous!!!
With all that said, I truly hope this silly twitter war stops and all the happy, fun times of the past begin again. I think Teresa was made the scapegoat and it is obvious who is involved. Clean house and make the show fun and not stressful for the viewers.
So long Caroline and Jacqueline! Caroline is no voice of reason either and Jacky should worry about her own family as well. Time for Teresa to have her own show - she rocks! I hope the reunion show is not about ganging up on Teresa or I will turn it off.
Hi andy! I think you are so adorable! just like my man Benjamin Netanyahu! Love ya both! Hey Andy, you need to get a show with some new housewives that are intelligent, normal, funny, minus the drama, successful, not rich, because most of America cant relate to extravagant, lavish living....You need to clean house with New jersey, Teresa should be a keeper, she is funny, kinda like the suzanne sugarbaker funny! I got hooked on them because of her table flipping, that was so hilariously funny! stay cool
Andy. Caroline is saying that NO ONE thinks Teresa is funny like Lucille Ball and that they where NEVER friends! However on Carolines blog on June9,2009 she says.... "Teresa, Joe, and the girls are hilarious. I've said it before, and I'll say it again...she is the modern day Lucille Ball! Where there is Teresa, there is laughter. She is a tremendous mom, wife, and friend...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, mwah, mwah, mwah! Congratulations to Teresa and Joe!"
all you talk about is teresa gossip....did you not see any of the other three lady on the show....i think thats bad of you
