Cast Blog: #WWHL

Happy MLK Day!

Andy Cohen addresses questions about WWHL's newest features.

Hey, everybody!

I'm a week behind on this damn blog, and I apologize. I'm trying to get into a routine with the new schedule and the blog fell through the cracks last week.

I'm having so much fun doing WWHL five nights a week. I've especially loved hosting all new people in the Clubhouse that have nothing to do with the Housewives, just to talk about themselves. Rosie Perez and Robin Thicke killed me last week.

I read all your comments from last week's blog and will respond:

Some have you say the set is too bright and the Lite-Brite art is too much for your wee eyes before bedtime. Hopefully by now you've gotten used to it? Or dislike it even more? I am crazy about it, and think the addition of the bar also kicked the Clubhouse up a few notches.

I'm excited for you to see more of Sandra.  We are lucky to have her as our own "Andy Rooney"-type commentator, and that segment is going to be one of your favorites if it isn't already.Some of you said the show felt rushed last week, and I see where you're coming from. I thought Rosie O'Donnell on Thursday was the perfect mix of questions, games, and hijinx. Watch tonight and let me know if it feels rushed. Also, we tape a long After Show which we post on a few hours after we get off the air where we answer many lingering calls and questions. Last night's with NeNe was something like 18 minutes long. Check it out because we got through a ton of questions. That After Show is a perfect companion to the live broadcast.

As far as Tramona, our sweet pet is off living with the parents of one of our Bravo staffers! She had a great run!

Tonight is a super-sized RHOBH that is FULL OF DRAMA.  It's really intense. And Brad after is so great -- his mom meets Gary's parents for the first time in their 10-year relationship. I'm live at 11 with Kyle and Mauricio. See you then!

Ask, Believe, Receive A Kiss From Andy

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 ;)
