Andy Cohen reflects on everything from pancakes to Lindsay Lohan's latest turn as SNL host.

on Mar 5, 20120

 

I really love pancakes and I never eat them. They've been on m'brain though and since they came up on the show last night I can't stop thinking about them. What did you think of Kandi's special, by the way? I got a lot of tweets and am interested in your feedback -- always.

I watched the bulk of Season 2 of Downton Abbey over the weekend and was kinda bummed about what a soap opera it turned into. There were a few mega-shark jumpy things that happened, but I guess I'm overall still loving the show because I can't wait to see the finale. And, by the way, I do love a soap opera so don't get me wrong. 

The "Real Housewives of Disney" sketch on SNL was hilarious. I couldn't have loved it any more. I was sitting there watching the show live in Sag Harbor trying to figure out what happened to LiLo's beautiful face when it came on and I fell out. Back to the face -- she is so young and pretty I am hoping that stuff will come out and she'll look 20 years younger. She is so talented and I bet she has a huge comeback.

What do you think of the latest Madonna song? I listened once and didn't love it but it took one more listen for me to be obsessed.  What can I say? She is in my blood.

Tonight after Bethenny we premiere Love Broker starring New York matchmaker Lori Zazlow -- she's a very likeable woman who is obsessed with finding everybody their soul mate. That's her business and she stays with people until they're matched. She's going to be on WWHL tonight with Fran Drescher, so that'll be a yenta-fest. 

I think I finally caught up on sleep over the weekend. I hope I don't blow it over the next couple days.  Wish me luck.

Andy, I would like for you to find out and let us know where Phadra went to college. It is hard for me to believe that anyone with such poor grammar skills could have graduated from a real law school, university or law school. Her grammar would be tolerable for an uneducated person or understandable but for someone who claims to have a college degree of any kind is deplorable. It's like chalk or a chalkboard to me. We need some kind of National exam before people are given a degree. Did she REALLY go to a REAL University? If so, she needs a refresher course in English. She can't even use a simple verb correctly.

Hi Andy...I think that the housewives are getting out of hand, maybe trying to stay relevant by bringing a lot of drama. The shows will still be good if there are less fighting and more fun between the girls. Please let the ladies form friendships with less anxieties because It's like a big fight stars over a mere misunderstanding. It seems like the Atlanta housewives are over each other and happy doing their own thing apart from each other rather than together.

Andy love love love you ! You crack me up, and I so enjoy the way you call people out ,there is no show I enjoy more than yours. Wish you were on 7 nights but the reality of it is you deserve those two nights off. I so missed the reunion of Atlanta last Friday night please tell me when the full episode will be on the site. And what happened to Tramona when you went to 5 nights? We need to find you a new pet. Hugs to you !

Please, please, please keep Camille Grammer! She's changed so much in season 2 that all my friends and I want to see more of her and her style. I hope you can come to a mutual agreement and work out a deal to keep her on the show.

Andy, We miss you! You'll be back tonight, can't wait!

Just ordered your book on Amazon. Due out May 8. Can't wait to sit by the beach and read that bad boy!

Andy, WHERE ARE YOU??? I so miss your show. I hope your absence has nothing to do with the car accident you mentioned. I don't know how you do it but your show is the funniest 30 min experience on TV. Please come back. I'm an old lady and you make my day, lol.

Look forward to see you returning Andy...my favorite late time host! A few comments - love you handle all your guests, and I even enjoy the guests that I didn't think I was fond of. Re: RH franchise - I, for one would love to see more fun, and less drama & hatred. I think it's gone a bit too far. I know it might make for good ratings, but so does good 'ole fashioned fun between women! The previews for RHONJ give me major anxiety, and sort of make me ill. Families being destroyed, and ganging up on (1) cast member (Teresa) is NOT cool...wasn't the bash-fest at the S3 reunion enough? It comes across as you really favor the Manzo's and Gorga's, and that's not cool Andy, my man! OK, I still love ya, but thought I'd provide this fan's insight/thoughts. Look forward to your return!

Andy, Please replace Vicki G. on OC. She is too mean and we are sick of her getting into everyone's business. Even my 24 year old daughter isn't interested in it anymore because of Vicki. I'm begging you ..... let Vicki go.

Love, Ann

Andy, I CAN NOT watch Real Housewives of NJ. Just seeing the trailer was SO STRESSFUL for me, and I don't know these women. Caroline Manzo looks like a rabid bulldog, and poor Teresa is going to spend the season defending herself against these animals. I WILL NOT WATCH IT.

I think your the greatest person on Bravo......... love everything you - do.

Stupid is as . . .
Stupid is as . . .

Tamra was SO WRONG when she claimed, "You can't argue with stupid!" People argue with Tamra all the time!

Iranians, already.
Iranians, already.

Thought you lived your life as a truthful guy. So why do you let the Iranians get away with referring to themselves as Persian? They're from Iran. They're Iranian. Like, we don't call people from Iraq "Mesopotamians" anymore; we call 'em Iraquis. Tell the Iranians to come out of the Persian closet. They ain't Persian. What are they, rugs? We aren't stupid, you know.

I know you are busy Andy but we miss your blogs. I agree with the other comment. Run the clips of Vicki and Tamra trashing Slade and run it at the reunion show. You always let Vicki off too easy. I know she can't take it but certainly dishes it out. She needs therapy..

Andy--loved how you handled Vicki G.-- she's so self-absorbed that she just doesn't get how obnoxious she is. Her daughter Briana has so much grace and class--she's be a great guest for your show. And I'm glad to hear she's feeling better. On a side note, when will Sheree write another blog?? i'm sure the viewers would like her "version" of what was said in Africa as well as an update on Chateau Sheree.

Actually, I am not a Martha Stewart fan and thought you had lost your mind to have her on the show. But I have to say, I really enjoyed her and always adore Mark. I think it is the real side of people that you bring out that makes your show a success. Because celebrities can come on and be themselves and they do let things slip because you are warm enough to love them anyway. Hope you had a nice vacation and come back for more laughs on WWHL.

Just when I think I can't love Andy any more than I do--you prove me wrong---you were so "right on" with Vicki on WWHL---she is so obnoxiously,out of control---& she does need to join Jill Zarin---they are both so resentful & jealous of others that they lose sight of how mean & self-absorbed they are--You handled her perfectly---she's so deluded she didn't even notice she was being called out---you're the best when you're in charge---please be in charge @ the reunion---we all love it when you're the BOSS!!!!!! Tamara seems to have gotten the memo that housewives can be fired--but Vicki missed reading hers---LOL had to go get a full stack of buttermilk pancakes from IHOP----numm they were good---

Andy, Get back to your blog! It's been almost two weeks. Riddle me this: just who is Sarah Winchester?

But you're cool.
But you're cool.

Andy, I do not like Tamra. She is the type of girl that's always got to be hating on someone, and her target is the nicest one of the whole bunch. Tamra needs to analyze her negative feelings about Alexis. And no, Alexis is NOT the problem. Tamra's issues are deeply rooted from her past. Here's what. Every Housewives show has its 'mean girl'. In OC, it's Tamra.

Your reunion shows are great. Really enjoy WWHL and plead the 5th. Having said that, I stopped watching Chelsea Lately as I don't want my entertainment mixed with politcs. Your political views do nothing to enhance the show, so why turn people away who have a different political view?

Hi Andy, I've never participated in the discussions or blogs or anything before, but this just caught my attention, and I think its worth mentioning... There seems to be a pattern with Tamra from the OC Housewives getting stuck in between two people that she cares for. First we saw Ryan and Simon not getting along w/ Tamra caught in the middle, then it was Vicki and Simon W/ Tamra caught in the middle, and now it seems like she's in the middle of Vicki and Gretchen not getting along... So, is this something that's always been an issue for her, or is it just a coincidence? She seems like a cool lady, I just hope this isn't some sort of subconscious self- sabotage...

I think it was mean to have Miss Piggy on the show with Vicki.

That said, she really does resemble her. And I mean that in a nice way.

Last night Vicky G. was on the after show. I loved how you put her in her place when you commented about Jill Z. ! And how you minimized her showing off her items for sale. I hate when they treat your show like a commercial for themselves. I do hope that Vicky and Tamera will not be on the housewives show. Cannot stand to watch them anymore. Love you and your show Andy. Go enjoy a pancake..ha.

Hi Andy,

How r u hanging?  This is the first time I am reading your blog, and I can not believe that I deleted my SNL off of my DVR (not suppose to happen), turned my TV off during the Love Broker (I’ll try to watch the entire episode next time), and haven’t listened to Madonna’s latest song. She is in my heart as well. Although, I did watch Kandi’s show and enjoyed it. I agree with you about Downton Abbey. I am very faithful to the series and I will watch to the end in a creepy Days of of Our Lives way  (I love soaps too) Well, have a good night and I hope you catch up on your z’s. As, I hope I catch up on my cable TV….there is just not enough time in the day for all of it.

Hi Andy,

I hope you are reading these comments. I too loved Kandi on WWHL and the new show was a great watch. (I hope they all don't cry so much though) Kandi is totally in her element with this new show. I hope you pick it up and run with it.

For Lori Zazlow, I have to say I prefer her as a matchmaker over Patti Stanger. She is easier to listen to and watch. More fun.

If you have ANY say at all with regards to Top Chef, PLEASE get them to go back to the old format and check the horrid bullying problems that happened on TC: Texas. Get rid of the gimmicks and too many team and catering challenges. A little drama on THAT show goes a long way. Thank you.

Said it before and will again. LOVE that WWHL is now 5 nights and keep playing "Plead the fifth", look forward to it every time I get to catch the show (Pacific coast time here)

Keep it real and keep it cool Andy. Jules

Andy welcome back on the blog train and congratulations on the success of WWHL. Even when you have a less than lively guest you do your best. And, I cannot muster any Lindsay optomism, please go away. Someone that young doing that much wierd stuff to her face is unfathomable to me aside from all the other stuff. BTW I am an avowed autobiography reader and am looking forward to yours. I wonder if this will be the last season of Atlanta HW as we know it a la NYC. It seems to be going nowhere fast.

Hi Andy!

First want to say - you are the best! I always love watching you with the guests, you are so entertaining, funny, honest and cute! :) One observation on Bethenny, it seems as though she has a hand in editing this season - - she's just all perfect and saintly and it seems one sided so far. But I will continue to watch and see where it goes. Love the new Love Broker show, she is awesome! Thanks for the best programming on tv :) BTW, I also am a Downton Abbey fan...but it has turned into a total soap opera, you are right. XoXo

Very apparent that Lori Zaslow is no Patti Stanger....and I mean that in a good way.

A friend made a great point about D. Abbey. Season 1 was such a hit that Season 2 was more than likely rushed. Season 3 is what we should look forward to. As to Season 2, the cinematography was quite stunning. I can never get enough of Maggie! Shirley Maclaine for Season 3, what does Andy think?

Thank you Andy

Thank You so much Andy
