I'm off to St. Louis for my high school reunion (go Greyhounds!), but before I left I taped a lil something for you....
See you Sunday on Watch What Happens: Live!
Andy, I'm sad to see some of the RHONY go. I think that franchise showed that housewives could come from any where not just Orange County. Bravo did a disservice to these Housewives that helped make the network popular. Recasting the show must have been in the works for some time. How could the powers that be wait until the very last minute to tell them they weren't needed any more? This was very shabby treatment.
If I could think of anything remotely positive about this, it would be that Jill wasn't asked to come back. She has done everything in her power to manipulate the fate of some of the other Housewives. Karma finally caught up with her.
Love the Jiggy picture!
Thanks for the continuing drama. A Real Housewife (from a town in CT that no one has ever heard
ANDY YOU WILL BE PERFECT REPLACEMENT FOR REGIS AND KELLY. I HOPE YOU TAKE THE JOB. YOU ARE THE BEST. BEST PART OF HOUSEWIVES SHOW IS YOUR 1/2 HR.SITCOM AT THE END OF THE SHOWS! THANKS FOR GIVING THE BOOT TO JILL ZARIN. CINDY NEEDED TO LEAVE AND THAT WINGNUT KELLY ALSO. THEY WERE EMBARRASING TO WATCH GET RID OF MIAMI AND BEEF UP HOUSTON. (NOT WORKING YET AS A INTERESTING, GOTTA WATCH IT) NOW HOW ABOUT LETTING GO OF BORING JACQUELINE (NJ)...KIM G. WITH HER OWN SHOW.....REALLY......NO CHARACTER CAN HOLD THEIR OWN....BETHANY IS EVEN BORING ON HER OWN
Simply; thanks for the fun slice of work life video and have a safe trip and fun time at the reunion. BTW, they scare me so I don't go.
We want more of Kathy and Richie Wilkey from Jersey !!! They should have their own show Andy! We could watch them launch their catering business. Richie is HIlarious and their family is just so fun to watch .. come on ....
It was very hard watching Bravo's reasoning regarding the letting go of the New York housewives that you chose to. The producers seemed to want the conflict between the women in order to make a more interesting show. Now, only some of them have been punished for being emotional. Do you know how much Bravo insulted all jewish women when they let Jill go and not Ramona? I'm sure the new women will become as interesting as Jill, Kelly, Cindy and Alex were. It is so hard for us, the viewers, to loose women who we have come to care for. Please allow us to continue to not loose touch with them somehow.
if anyone should of been fired it should have been crazy drunk romna and the fool sonja what were you thinking. TURTLE TIME
ANDY, WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE DON'T LEAVE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!! WE ALL NEED OUR ANDY!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE AMERICA'S SWEETHEART!!!!!!!! LOVE YOU ANDY, TERRI
Mazel to Bravo for cleaning house on The Real Housewives of NYC! Cannot wait to see the new cast members and the antics that follow!
BRAVO PLEASE POST MY COMMENTS. THANK YOU.
Thank you for addressing the Fans and loyal viewers of RHoNY. I think most of the viewers who complained were speaking out of being annoyed with a few of our housewives after how they were acting at the reunion. This started with Bethanny and then went downhill from there. Jill changed a lot and wasn't being genuine. She came off as being weak and need LuAnn to help her from everybody. That was not believable. She stated she tried to act like Bethanny and it didn't work, then she started acting like she couldn't handle anything because she became so emotional, etc. The reunion was the last straw with most viewers when it comes to Jill. If we all think about it, when we are annoyed we all over-react and say things we may not mean. I can somewhat understand why Jill was fired, but don't understand why Alex was fired. Housewives this should be a lesson to you, stay true to your character and come off genuine (bad or good).
I feel Caroline made a big change and it was disappointing to watch her this season. I read that she and Jac doesn't want to return to the show, but they signed a contract. Maybe this is why they are not writing their blog every week. I hope they don't leave the show. I also thought well maybe Danielle realized before we did about Caroline, so maybe we are seeing the real Caroline. I also read that she and Dina are at odds. I don't know if it is true, but for some reason I believe they are at odds. If this is true she need to put her "big girl panties on", and start taking her own advice. Maybe that is way Teresa is not taking her advice. I must say I love (d) watching RHoNY and RHoNJ. My favorite RH is RHoNJ. I enjoy the connection all of them have with the family. You can see and feel the love that they genuinely have for their family. Should I mention the adorable children? I feel when RHoAtl came every RH shows have to top the outrageousness. I got turned off from RHoAtl, because it was he say/she say and it was so grade school. There was no real story line just about when a person said about the other. I think the people liked the fights between Kim and NeNe. I enjoyed their friendship together after that it went downhill. I think all of them should be replaced with new people. I think Kandi and Phaedra are great and shouldn't be on the show unless there are new cast members with real careers. It was stated that Kim is getting her new show. If it is ridiculous, I will tune out. I hope it is similar to Bethanny first spin off from RHoNY. The reason I say similar to Bethanny show is because Bethanny always had goals and she used the show as her platform to achieve what she wanted. I respect her and that is one of the reasons people relate to her. She always seemed very genuine and stated she wasn't perfect.
I posted when I heard that Bravo was looking for real "rich" people to be on RHoNY. I know a bit far fetched, but I wanted Bethanny to come back as a RHoNY. This would show where she came from to where she is now and that she is still being true to herself. She can continue to promote herself and Bravo.
How excited was I to hear Andy read my email on this video! I sent him an email because I missed him but never thought I would hear my name come out of his mouth. Do I love my Andy Cohen! Candy
I love watching all the housewives! I am glad New York is being revamped, now hopefully this will be a wake up call to the ladies in Orange County.
Concerning Beverly Hills housewives....I like the show always watch it... did not like Kyle last season at all....I think she was very mean spirited..but this season she seems more pleasant.
Thank you for "releasing" Jill, Kelly, and Cindy! I wish "Silex" could still be on the show, though; they have integrity and were never mean. Luann (ugh, boring and false) needs to go next -- please. Thank you, though, for making changes that can only improve the show. Now for the RH ofOrange County: Recommend saying buh-bye to Vicki and Tamra. That would upgrade the show tremendously. Thanks, Andy. You are such a funny and smart guy.
Andy. Glad your back..... Love you and your show..... Im not a Greyhound... But, I am a St. Louis native.....
And I am so happy to have you back. I'll try to forgive you for Jill. Tho it's a big loss to loose our Jewish mama.
Hey Andy, we just had a 14yr old boy kill himself last week due to bullying at school and on the internet. He was struggling with his sexuality and it was used against him. Lady Gaga mentioned him before singing a song-she was his idol. Please give him and all children like him a shout-out on your next WWHL. Let's spread the word on No Hate. Thank you, faithful viewer.
Hey Andy..when is Bravo going to do "Redneck Housewives"? Let's see some down to earth real women instead of all these phoney ones.
What is going on?? I tuned in last night to catch the latest installment of the NJ wives and got Patti Stanger instead. Ugh! Why weren't the housewives on???
SOOOOOOOOOOOO GLAD YOU'RE BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But so sorry that I couldn't watch the show, really getting sick of seeing Patty's face on bravo every time I go to it. Bravo has been shoving her down our throat for several weeks now and she's too much like Jill. If you want to see what people REALLY think of her go outside the edited bravo blogs. That sound you hear is people changing channels everytime her face appears on the screen. If you wanted your premier to score ratings you should've had Bethenny on. Still love ya
This is in regards to the reunion show for RHONJ. I am so scared it will turn into a Teresa bashing. I don't believe in kicking people when they are down. I would also like to see some clarification as to why BRAVO added Melissa and Kathy. It sounds like the motive was very mean-spirited and has created a very sad season. Also, would like clarification on the Melissa/Danielle connection. PLEASE,PLEASE try and control this and lets not have a melt down like the RHONY. Believe it or not there are a lot of us who are tired of the screaming and back-biting.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for letting Jill, Kelly, and Cindy go! I wish Alex could have stayed (without Simon) but you made a huge mistake keeping that fake LuAnn. Really, she should have been the first to go, I do not know anyone that likes the fraud "Countess" she is a joke! Bad move Bravo.
WHAT THE HELL HAPPENEDTO THE NJ HOUSEWIVES ON SUNDAY.... ANDY WE PLAN OUR EVENINGS FOR THIS SHOW.... WHAT ARE YA DOING?????
Andy, so glad you are back!!! Missed you so much. I just have to say that you are the Best part of Bravo TV and you put a smile on all of your Fans faces. I still love watching all of the Real Housewives shows but they pale compared to Andy & WWHL.....lOVE YOU!!
Hi Andy, I love watching your show! I love it it gives me a reason to have a cocktail! lol! Anyways just wanna say I loved the show with Tia and Tamera I grew up watching them on tv show and I loved them! I wanted to be a twin just so I could be like them back them!! I dont want your publicist answering this IIII want you to answer this I think you are awesome! I laugh the entire time on your show! I love it! Oh I and I do drink everytime I hear your secret word!! lol
sibmitted sept.27,2011 From Calif. Andy, why Jill ? I love her. she of all people I think should of stayed. Sorry to say I wont be watching this coming season of ( housewives of New York ) I'm not a fan of Romona or Sonja. I must say I was very please you got rid of Alex and her weird husband Simon. Now about housewives of beverly hills: What will happen to Taylor ?
Please bring Jill back. Alex was soooo annoying and a poser but Jill brought so much to the show. Please reconsider!
Andy, I'm so glad that you decided to change up the Real Housewives of New York. Excellent decision! It was almost getting too hard to watch. The Countess could have gone too, but hopefully it will all work out. You chose wisely and I think the show will be so much better! Love that you are back from summer hiatus! Sunday nights are fun again!!
Andy - Give Bravo a big "mazel!" for their recent RHNY makeover. But seriously, who are we going to make fun of??? I mean, watching Kelly is like watching an upside down B-rated movie. I am desperately trying to figure out whats going on but I can't make any sense of it! And what about Alex! I think I'm really going to miss her hyped up dramatics, distressed faces and Louis Vuitton shoes! The only thing you need to get rid of now is Tamra Barney!!!!! Oh, and I LOVE YOU ANDY!!!
I did a little dance when I read it. I had sent you an email in the past to pls change it up and get some ladies with actual money and I am so happy you did. I owe you a few shirts... PB
Hi Andy! I trust your judgement re: the revamp of RHWONY. I completely understand why Jill, Alex & Kelly were let go. Bottom line: (unless it was money) they no longer had a story to tell that wouldn't sound like a re-run of season's past. I don't think Cindy was a good fit for reality TV, and I'm sure she would agree. Ramona is incredibly rude, but her business is growing and she is interesting. Keeping Sonja I don't get - Cindy said it best: she talks about a pecking order, and is serious?!
Hey Andy! and welcome back.....one more thing: could you ask Teresa what happened to Joe when you tape the RHWONJ reunion? He's either in bed, going back to bed, or saying the nastiest things about your family. He sounds childish and jealous. Is this really the guy you married? I would never let ANYONE talk about my brother and sister-in-law like that. You both should be proud of your brother and his beautiful wife.
Welcome back to Sunday night Andy, but really why do you encourage drinking on a Sunday night, Monday is a work day for many people. Bad, bad Andy! Thank you for letting Jill go I stopped watching the RHONY last season on account of Jill, she is so class- less just as Luann. Also Kelly had to go.
About RHWONJ, the whole Gorga gang is so class less, always flashing their big naked behind, like we wanted to see that, yuck just as gross as Danielle was, even Caroline is getting wierd, come on Caroline, bring class back to NJ.
Big let down from Kyle Richards this season, she's losing her "Girl next door" image. hope to get her back. She should NOT be the mean girl.
Your new jackhole should be Kim Kardashian for getting married when she knew she knew it wouldn't work before-hand. Also for keeping the ring when she dumped him and her mother sopoke up for her saying "nobody likes and "indian giver". Better yet, give it to Kris Jenner for saying that and for being a money hungry mom and teaching her daugher to be the same way.
