I am feeling bullish about today, and I think that's because the weekend was a mix between very productive and very fun.
And before I get into that, let me apologize for my spotty blogging. I am so busy with everything at Bravo, add finishing my book to that equation, and you'll hopefully understand. And Christmas shopping. And the show going five times a week. Lord, help me. Friday night I let off some steam at the Jimmy Fallon Christmas Party and wound up warbling in a karaoke room in the Village. Maybe I performed a duet of Rocky Mountain High. Maybe not, but I think maybe I did.
Saturday I jammed on my book and went to the Waverly for a late dinner with friends. Drinks are 16 bucks for a cocktail, and I mentioned that to a friend who said that's "standard" these days. Ruh Roh.
Yesterday was more book and a ton of Bravo screening. Before the show, I went to the premiere of Madonna's movie W.E. at the Museum of Modern Art. I enjoyed it -- a juxtaposition of the Wallace Simpson/throne abdication story with a modern day Real Housewife of NYC living in her own misery. Madonna looked gorgeous, and I did not. I took pictures in the press line, and when I got to my seat realized that my zipper was down all the way. Lovely.
Tonight I'm going deep with Taylor Armstrong live at 11, and I haven't stopped chuckling from last night's WWHL, which was one of my favorites. Sandra Bernhard was hilarious and Roble was adorable! We got into it on the After Show! Check it out:
Feeling very sad that I am headed out on Saturday for a five month contract on the Freedom of the Seas to play piano and will not be seeing you Andy in the Caribbean. My wife insists she will record all the show so I don't miss anything but I don't think it will be quite the same. Have a great next five months and I will look forward to seeing you again in May!
I really enjoy reading the blogs from all the Real Housewives, but it seems this year they seem to be slacking off (I understand 2 are going thru trying times so they're excused). You should be like the sport teams and fine them if they don't fulfill their contract which I'm sure includes blogging.
Taylor was great on WWHL! People that hate her
maybe dont understand domestic violence. Im glad
shes using her platform to speak out against it. She took
took the situation,& turned it into something
positive. God bless her.
Andy, I think it's strange that after just ONE season together, the Beverly Hills Housewives have decided t band together and refuse the producers to add anyone to the cast. Do they feel like your employer maybe, because they sure are acting like it. Love WWHL!
Andy, best WWHL EVER. So many of my questions about Taylor are finally answered. Thank you for going "deep" with her. All this season it has been hard to watch her deteriorate, but I have new understanding of her after WWHL. Thanks!
It was good to see that Taylor looks and sounds better on WHHL. I don't know if I can continue to watch episodes like last night's....watching a total nervous breakdown on screen is unpleasant. I hope that Taylor and her daughter are healing and getting the psychological help they so sorely need. Her situation is tragic but almost all of what happened on the show was caused by Taylor's on irrational actions and comments.
I love Camille but I think she could of told her friend to back off and just let Taylor be, it's between the two of them. Don't get me wrong Taylor is a bit of a drama queen at times. Though I would not want to be in Taylor's shoes she must have had a really hard life with her husband. She's seems like she's a very fragile person being put though everything he has done to her. Love you Andy and Love you real housewives of beverly hills.
Just finished watching tonight's episode, it was scary and uncomfortable to watch Taylor for the hundredth time go in and out of what seems like an alcohol induced psychosis. May be good for ratings but someone needs to step in she needs professional help!!
Great blog :) u crack me up!!! At least u blog - as busy as u r!!! I hate those HW's that do not blog!!! Too good to blog??? SAD :( can't wait for tonight - good luck! Not a Taylor fan and I know it will b hard for you!
