Happy Summer!

Andy Cohen adds more book dates and catches up on some summer T.V.

We're adding book signings to my schedule. Tonight I'm at the Strand Bookstore in NYC, and Friday at 7 I'm signing at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Next Wednesday, June 6th, I'm in Atlanta and June 9th signing at Bookhampton in East Hampton! And we're hoping to add one in L.A. early next week.  Watch this space, or my Twitter feed. Or Facebook. Or just go about your day.It feels like NYC is blooming all over the place -- Fleet Week, sunny days that end late, everybody's wearing shorts, and there's an extra spark in the air. I love it, and it was so much fun being out at the beach over the weekend, with sunny skies and great food.

I loved our shows last week so much. I just can't stop thinking about the Dan Rather/John Mayer episode, particularly. I have such admiration for Dan Rather, and it was so fun for me to watch the entire WWHL team fall under his spell. I also can't say enough about John Mayer's new album, which I've listened to non-stop for a week. I'm not hugely familiar with his catalog, but I have to check it out.

Speaking of music and last week, I came away from meeting Adam Lambert totally impressed with him. Imagine his bravery at his age to come out publicly, glam it up, and do onstage what straight performers have been doing for years -- only with people of the same sex. I thought that was a bad double standard that ABC held up against him last year. I'm also listening to the new Scissor Sisters, and those guys are going to actually attempt to perform in the Clubhouse. Wow, it's gonna be a fun summer.Are you watching Mad Men? It has been PHENOM this season, and last Sunday's episode was at the top of the heap. Did you think Peggy was going to fall down the elevator shaft? I did. Thank the lord -- or Matt Weiner -- she didn't.  I don't want it to end. Don't hate me, but I'm four episodes behind on Girls. I'll get there, people. 

Thanks for all your nice comments about m'book. I worked my butt off on it, and I'm loving talking to people about it. Very cool to be on The New York Times Best Seller List, and I was really blown away by Janet Maslin's comments about it in last Friday's paper.

Don't forget we have Joey Lawrence and Steve Guttenberg on WWHL tonight after Around the World in 80 Plates, and then Thursday is our big Facts of Life reunion with Mindy Cohn and Kim Fields. And Kim reveals her real hair on Thursday's Don't be Tardy For the Wedding!

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.  

Epic.  

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.
