Getting Myself in Gear

Andy Cohen gets back on the blog wagon.

I am horribly out of sync with my blog, and I apologize to anybody whose been checking this space. How is it possible that I wrote a book in four months and now am falling off the blog wagon? I think it has to do with my new five-night-a-week schedule and generally being out of whack.

I had a great time on the show this week, and love how different every episode was. I can't believe what a great guy Daniel Radcliffe is, and I loved all the scoop Ryan Murphy spilled about his shows on Monday night. And did you see how pissed I got about the cheese on my rug on Wednesday night? When did I become Jeff Lewis? We did indeed get the damn cheese off the rug, and so I shouldn't have worried. 

After that show I went out with Patti to an AmfAR party hosted by Heidi Klum. It was pretty fun, and I especially enjoyed witnessing a moment of insanity when Dina Lohan either left the event in a huff or was ushered out of the event in a huff.  I couldn't tell what was happening but she seemed like an O.C. Housewife on a rampage. She was FURIOUS.  

Speaking of O.C., we are all in a lather at Bravo HQ about how fantastic this new season -- it's SEVENTH -- is. I have a special place in my heart for the O.C. gals and that show, which I always say reminds me of Knots Landing, and there's something about this season that totally clicks right from the start. I am forever amazed by what happens in front of a camera when you turn it on. Truth is forever stranger than fiction -- it's so trite but proven true every time I pop in a rough cut of most of our shows. And I love human behavior. And I'm a voyeur, of course.This weekend I'm in Ft. Lauderdale surprising my mom for her birthday. She doesn't live here -- she just happens to be here. And it's rainy, and then it's going to snow in NYC when I come back. So my weather karma might not be too amazing. But maybe I'll get a full night's sleep.

Fashion Week awaits back in NYC, and we have another great week of WWHL planned with Gloria Estefan, David Arquette, Lil' Kim, Willie Geist, Phaedra, a Valentine's Special with Patti Stanger and Joan Rivers. That's gonna all be FUN.

WWHL’s Research PA dishes on one seriously unique work week.

Hey guys! My name is Laura and I’m a Research Production Assistant here at WWHL. For the first 3 seasons on this unbeweavable show, I was the permanently glittered hands crafting the crazy fun props and prizes gifted to the guests. You name it, I’ve bedazzled it! (No but seriously: pacifier, pickle, ‘fro pick, condoms, whip, hookah, mannequin leg...the list goes on!) This past season, I closed down my crafting corner and now I have the pleasure of helping Megan, Christie, and Lindsey with research and interactive. Every night, I get to read all of your amazing questions for our guests and help make sure that Andy’s got a stellar selection on his cards. But who cares about me?! On to this crazy week of shows!

Sunday: Kim and Reza did NOT disappoint.  They served up some wig wearin’, stache sportin’, truth tellin’ realness.  Kim rocked “The Farrah” like only she can, not to be outdone by Reza’s gloriously quaffed upper lip.  I swear that man’s mustache is the 8th wonder of the world...

There’s something so refreshing about two guests truly unafraid to tell it like it is and it makes for great TV.  Reza musta had Santa on the brain ‘cause he couldn’t keep from dropping those Ho, Ho, Hos! And say what you will about Kim, but that lady just wants to be home with her hot hubby and you can’t hate a ho for that!  

Monday: Let’s be real for a second: I’m 23 and I’m not even gonna PRETEND to be ashamed that I used to drink up every drama filled minute of Laguna Beach and The Hills. So of course I was LIVING for Kristin Cavallari’s confession that it was a big pile of producer induced drama. Shocking? Eh, not really. Exhilarating for the teen in me? Abso-freaking-lutely. There’s no shame in my game, hunny!

Taylor Armstrong was on her absolute A-game and she totally wins for my favorite one liner of the week: “The only thing uglier than a drunk woman is a drunk woman’s 40-yr-old ass flying through the air!” And please let us not forget the arm wrestling. Oh my word, the arm wrestling.  


Tuesday: Truly, there are no words for the amazingness that was the luscious lipped Lisa Rinna and Jeff Lewis and therefore I simply gift you with this kisstacular clip:

You’re welcome. 

Wednesday: I really think that one of the things that is so unique about WWHL is our unexpected guest combos. You never know who will end up in those chairs!  So when I saw ‘Carmen Electra and Billy Ray Cyrus’ on the calendar, my achy breaky heart skipped an achy breaky beat.

When Carmen slinked into the studio I couldn’t believe how amazing she looked. Does that woman age?! She was KILLIN’ it all night long complete with sex appeal and sock bun. I admit I was bummed when Billy Ray plead the fifth on the Miley Ex-BF question. I mean really, who wasn’t hoping for a little juice on a JoBro?! But fear not! Carmen saved the day (and all the imaginary swimmers) by teaching Andy and Billy to patrol the beach, slow mo style!


Thursday: Apparently agelessness is going around because Jane Fonda looks SPECTACULAR. She and Sandra paired up for the perfect storm of hilarity and the show ended with my favorite new holiday tradition: Secret Sandra! 

And may I just add that the legendary, Oscar winning, fitness flaunting Miss Fonda went home wearing a menorah hat? So yeah, my life is complete. 


Love and Light ;)
