Andy dishes about his meeting with Madonna and Brandi's shocking secret.

on Jan 24, 20120

Wait, did last night happen? Sometimes I ask myself that the morning after an especially wacky show. The answer is always YES.

First of all, I'm so glad RHOBH ended on a high, happy note with Pandora's wedding. It was fun to go inside of it, and when Lisa showed up at WWHL she was in tears, having just watched it for the second time.

Not only did she let me feel her butt on live TV to prove to the world that there aren't implants in the badonk (I didn't feel any), Brandi revealed during Plead the Fifth that she had a weeklong fling with Gerard Butler. And Uggie, the dog from The Artist, appeared to collect his Mazel of the Day in person and I got a good face lickin'!

After the show I went to the party for Madonna's new movie W.E. at the top of the Standard and chatted with the icon. She gave me a fantastic preview of the MadonnaBowl, but I promised her I wouldn't share what she said. It's safe to say it's going to be a lot of epic packed into twelve minutes. I cannot wait.

Speaking of music legends, tonight Mary J. Blige is on WWHL! That's going to be exciting.

I turned in my book yesterday for the final time. I feel light as a feather. So I can happily tell you to look for Most Talkative in stores May 8th and know it will actually be there!

oh yeah. it had the song hllelaujah playing at the back. I think that episode was called my old lady from the first season. I also liked turk's patient in that episode. I see that episode quite often.

Dear Andy, My sister and I love your show. We get together, make popcorn, and lock the kids in with the Dads, and hoot and scream like maniacs! Our Husbands say, ' oh for crying out loud, that stuff has to be scripted'. Well I'm here to tell ya, if we were under the impression it was scripted there is no way we would tune in! Great entertainment, we have given up the soaps without a backward glance. I have to laugh at my Husband, and Brother in Law, when they leave the room when sissy and I are harping on the housewives. Reminds me of when they start talking about FOOTBALL ! And am thrilled about Watch What Happens Live! Well done!

Hi Andy,

Surprised you haven't sent in a blog after Beverly Hills Reunion part 1 :) Were you surprised by the turn of events?

Love the 5 night a week - oh, what happened to turtle time?

Andy, I love Brandi. How can I be the only person in America that thinks Lisa is mean? I am not saying the other ladies are perfect. She is CONTINUALLY rude to her husband and how many times is she allowed to say rude comments and say they are British humor. I feel like I am the only person that feels this way! Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just read the article in Curve Magazine about Taylor Armstrong and Fernanda Rocha (from Oc housewives) quite interesting.. I hope you ask Taylor about it on the next Reunion show, would love to see her squirm!

I wish you would show clips of how Lisa has defended Kyle for both seasons, and how Kyle has stapped Lisa in the back. Lisa has a sense of humor. Tell the other housewives to lighten up alittle.

Hi Andy, Love Beverly Hills! Does it seem that Lisa put on her mean pumps this season? Also love, love your show but Live with Andy last night was interesting in a odd way....What was up with your Bartender? We think he should stay out of speaking roles. Thank you so much! Keith & Terry

BRAVO, PLEASE POST MY COMMENT.

BRAVO and ANDY,

RH Comment Many viewers and fans had written about the Real Housewives not posting their comments weekly. That is very disrespectful to the viewers and fans. It should be in their contract that it is mandatory to post weekly. The housewives priority is to Bravo Real Housewives not promoting their own personal crap. If it wasn't for Bravo Real Housewives nobody would know who they are. I feel that all the RH shows are the same, so there is no reason to continue to watch them all. I decided to give RHoNJ a second chance and this season is the last chance for RHoAtl. I will continue to watch this season and will not watch next season. I also feel if they could care less about posting each week why should the viewers or fans watch or post.

TOP CHEF Comment I like the” Last Chance Kitchen” (Top Chef). I really wished that Nyesha and Beverly could have used their own ingredients. I also wish the two could have been in the finals. I think they are the top out of the crew this season. I would like to suggest to Bravo and Top Chef to bring back all the winners of Top Chef and the runner up for those seasons. I also would like blind judging for the entire season. I think the judges have favorites and show bias. I truly respect Eric Ripert, he should be a permanent judge on the Top Chef. I think he is the most creditable judge on the show. Tom has changed and I don’t feel he is credible as a judge. This is my opinion, I don’t mean any disrespect. Top Chef has always been my favorite show, but I am really disappointed on what it is turning out to be. It should be about great chefs doing what they do best and able to compete with other great chefs. Not about Bravo and judges creating gimmicks and causing drama. It should be about the Chefs and food. Top Chef is losing credibility and this is due to Bravo and the judges. I have been watching since season one. I will only watch Last Chance Kitchen the rest of the season. I really don’t care who wins this season. I didn’t have any favorites that I was rooting for, but feel that Nyesha and Beverly should have been in the finals.

Hi Andy,

Love the five day format for WWH but your blog writing is suffering. Also, you promised viewer mail once a week and already you didn't do it this week? We long-time viewers count on you to keep it real so please keep your promise.

Thanks boo!

I was excited to have you every night. And I enjoy the differnt hosts. It truly helps me know the new young people and keep up with Whats Happening. I applaude you and your staff for stepping out there. While some nights are funnier, the accomplishment is the guests seem to love the clubhouse and interacting with the fans. I think the tigers problem was he couldn't walk around, you should have had a leash and play toys. Keep up the good work.

Congrats on WWHL five nights a week ~ I love your late night show, because it's wacky, and fun. Brandi and Lisa are a hoot together ~ Talk about a modern day Lucy and Ethel!

I just watched the entire season of RHODC. It's a shame that this franchise was cancelled. To use Mary Amon's words, Tareq and Michaele did "hijack" the entire show. How about inviting Tareq to appear on WWHL? I would pay a million dollars to watch him explain (squirm) why he told everyone that Michaele had MS. Tareq and Michaele both owe the other DC housewives an apology.

Hey Andy! Love your show and watch ALL the housewives. I was just hoping your show would be made available On Demand. Any chance of that or at least posting when there would be reruns?

Andy,

I love Lisa and Brandi together. They both have a great sense of humor.

Please don't bring Taylor back. She is all about negative.

Please don't show the crying drama about Kyle.

I believe the viewers would love to see a lot more of Kim.

It would be nice to see more of Camille. (It seems that she does not want to come back).

Adrienne Maloof is so boring. It has been awful to watch her attacks towards Lisa. The cook Bernie is a horrible man. I can believe that Adrienne has allowed this man to trash Lisa and her family so many times. This man needs to stop. This cook is also attacking Bravo.

Please don't bring back Taylor, Kyle and Dana. Let's finally watch more normal people that are not camera hungry. Let's show the world that Beverly Hills has normal people.

Pandora's wedding was great. Pandora could be a new housewife. The viewers have been able to see a lot of her. She is a darling.

Hey Andy -love the show but ever since I started working at 5am I have missed the show! Can you guys start re-running it more? I never can seem to catch a replay ad don't have DVD.. . .and trust me I watch a lot of ravotv (just ask y husband)

Loved Lisa and Brandi together! What a great combo and a great show. So fun!! They're the two that ACTUALLY have a sense of humor and can dish a joke and take a joke. Unlike some others. Lisa needs her own show so we can take the positive of her accomplishments and go for the ride with her without the cattiness and jealousy of the others to bring the mood down.

After seeing the clips from the reunion it's looking like attack Lisa time. Next Monday's poll should be about the Maloof Hoof! I thought it was hilarious and said in fun. How Adrienne can be so offended and hold that grudge is beyond me and I have a feeling many others would agree. So lets put this to rest with a poll!!

Love you Andy. Watch you every night!

Andy: why oh why have you changed the cast of Million Dollar Listing?

why don't you do a show about real housewives who work, take care of the children, do laundry and actually have fun with friends instead of talking behind everyones back. I have been friends with the same group of ladies since I was young, our parents were friends and we are now friends, we treat each other like family. These ladies may have money but as far as I am concerned they don't have friends.

Andy...you are flying HIGH right now!!! Congrats to going 5 nights with WWHL. I have to say, however, it will not be the same since the main focus of your show had been recapping the housewives episodes. I loved watching just to get more backstory on the ladies and hearing other celebs dish on the show. Now I feel the focus will change, especially since RHOBH is done. Looking forward to the reunion, but really sad the season has ended.

Hiya Andy, The ep with Lisa and Brandi together was one of the best so far. It was much form congenial than the show with Dana. Although, BH ended with the fabulous wedding, it felt stilted and incomplete. Kim was MIA. And Taylor was already over her tragedy...? She milked her situation for all it was worth. She actually seemed happy to be rid of the sad hubby because it freed her up for all the wonderful parties that she might otherwise be excluded. The entire season was bogged down with Taylor's problems. Since she, Dana and Kim rec'd only 2% of the favorite vote, please dismiss them for next season. Those 3 girls were a drag on the show.

The incessant yelling and crying for us is so over. The whole season all we saw were weak and pathetic women ( Taylor) , fake and teary women ( brush away that tear Lisa) women who fancy themselves and wear silly clothes (Lisa) and emotionally ill women ( Kyle and Kim). if Kyle thinks she is okay, she is not..see someone, Lady..no one is that emotionals at life itself.. and she is sober!

Dearest Andy, Just had to let you know that I watched Laurie's wedding again, during the most recent OC Housewives marathon. I also watched Pandora's wedding on Monday night. I liked Laurie's wedding better. There, I said it. How are Laurie and George doing, by the way ? Love you, Andy !

I think its sad Nono is going to Africa to ruin the trip and start fights but that is what she gets paid to do.

I didn't know where else to say this, but I thought it was odd to end the RHBH with Pandora's wedding. While she is beautiful and the wedding was super pretty, we don't know Pandora. Over the season, we have not gotten to know her -- so to see a wedding of someone we know nothing about was odd to me. Yes, Lisa is her mother and all -- but it just seemed odd to make Pandora's wedding such a big story line when we -- as viewers -- know nothing about the girl.

Hi Andy, I really enjoyed "Pandora Box" episode with Lisa vanderpump and Brandi. Kevin was helarious. I watched the show on my dvr so I couldn't call in but I was wondering if you could get me some info about Lisa's necklace. It was absolutely beautiful and I would love to have it when she gets tired of it. LOL Thanks Carol

Andy you have to get over yourself... You have truly become a housewife, and that is not a compliment.... you have your favorites, and the ones that are not.. you put them down... You are suppose to be the one in the middle, but you let fights get out of hand during reunions, The ones you do not like... you actually kick their asses too.... I use to find you so much fun, but now... your quite a trouble maker... The question we as the viewers want asked, go unanswered... Why? Taylor is a trainwreck, why is she still on.. She does not blog, along with Half the ladies. It use to give us a chance to voice our opinions.. Not anymore.. I guess they are above us tv viewers... I just wanted to clear my mind.. I would be going on forever, because many things are going on.. that is soooooooo wrong.. Happy Tuesday Andy Shannon

Hi Andy, How about a reality show featuring the challenges evangelical families? It might be fun seeing how the other side lives!

Hi Andy, Last night was so fun! I almost fell off my couch when Brandi revealed her tryst with Gerard! What a catch you got with the game last night! Good job! I think she loved revealing it. Who wouldn't? I'm so looking forward to seeing Madonna in the Super Bowl. Of course being a Boston Housewife, I am a huge Patriot's fan! All of the show's on TV come out of New York and I don't think you guys realize it, but ALL of the shows are cheering for the Giants. That's fine, but don't do it on TV when you have New England fans who are your fans too. Every show I watch this happens. Please pass it on to the other hosts if you would be so kind. Lisa really seemed sad last night. She looked different too. She's my favorite and I hope she's OK. Perhaps it's that she had been crying watching the wedding again. She was so funny when she said she liked Joe from NJ. Too much!

Congratulations on your book, what a night with Lisa and Brandi and "shi shi", I hope the other women do not go after lisa. Lisa is an adorable person and a true friend to anyone. Can't wait for the reunion but it looks like it will be one couch against the other and if any of them attack Lisa, stand up for her, ok.

Now if you can get trouble maker Nene off the show, that girl does not believe she causes any trouble. She is a blame the other person type. Its so ignorant of her

Loved Lisa and Brandi on WWHL last night Andy! I will never get the image out of my head of you squeezing Lisa's butt, I just have to know, was Ken there?LOL! Too funny! I also can't wait to read your book, THANK YOU!

Great to see you blog so soon after a WWHL show.

Loved last night and how candid your two guests were. Was there some reason that Taylor wasn't mentioned at all?

Brandi. I love her honesty and I would say "go for it" with Gerard Butler if there is a chance for something there.

Lisa Vanderpump is a sweetheart and Pandora's wedding was everything that Chi Chi Chi Kevin said it would be. The photos on line today are also lovely.

But the star of the night was Uggie!!! ADORABLE. Maybe he could be the new Tramona!!

I look forward to tonight's show with MKB!!! Keep up the great work, love the new 5 night format. One thing about you Andy is that you are always up tone and happy and entertaining regardless of the guest. You made me a fan.

BTW? Should we be afraid for the upcoming reunion show for RHWoBH? I have a feeling the answer is yes.

Keepin' it real in WA State. Jules
