Andy Cohen coveres everything from WWHL's Facts of Life reunion to the RHONY premiere.

on Jun 1, 20120

Happy Friday, everybody! 

First thing I need to tell you is that we added some book signings and I would love to meet you there. Tonight (Friday) in Vegas at Queue Bar in the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino.  On Monday, June 4th, I will be in L.A. -- Brentwood, California to be exact -- at 7 p.m. at the Diesel bookstore. On Wednesday the 6th I am hitting Atlanta at 6 p.m. at SCAD. 

I wonder what you thought of our big Facts of Life reunion last night with Kim Fields and Mindy Cohn. Imagine my surprise (horror?) when I realized moments before the show that Ms. Fields didn't totally love the idea of talking about Facts of Life for a half hour! Hilarity did not ensue. Who can blame her -- she's had a long and fabulous career since then, but I mean indulge a Gemini, right?

I am really excited for you to see the new RHONY on Monday night. You will definitely miss the departed Housewives (it's always a bummer saying goodbye to old friends), but hopefully you will enjoy the promise of some new fun in NYC. It's a big season -- the women go to Miami, London, and St. Barths. Oh, and they stir up a ton of trouble in Manhattan, as you can imagine. 

Thanks again for all the very nice comments about m'book. I am loving sharing it with you, and really moved that parts of it are touching your heart and others are making you laugh. I think my favorite chapter is about when I was an intern at CBS News and "Express Yourself" was the song of the summer -- and I expressed myself a little too much. 

I'm heading to Vegas to host Miss USA and celebrate my birthday with my parents and some friends.... It should be a fun weekend. Hope to see you on NBC Sunday at 9. (WWHL is off for two weeks, but don't fret, we'll be back with new shows and Teresa is our first guest back.)

I used to like you Andy, but I'm really disturbed by your performance at the final reunion episode of RHOBH last night.   It was outrageous how you let Kyle attack Lisa (you let her rant on and on for about 30 minutes and every time Lisa tried to say something, Kyle yelled over her), and then you jumped in and started attacking Lisa yourself, even though Lisa had already apologized to Kyle several times.  I don't think Kyle even deserved an apology.  She should have apologized to Lisa!


Lisa is too good for the show.  As much as I love her, I'm hoping she won't be back next season.  I don't want her having to deal with Kyle, Kim, Brandi and Yolanda any longer.

This Reunion Andy of the Housewives of Beverly Hills,. I don't feel you have addressed near to none of questions or answers that we as viewers would of liked to of seen brought out. You seem yourself to be pointing the finger at Lisa. Your not bringing it all out. This is been a waste of reunion.

Nene Leaks should be fired after last weeks episode (the pillow talk episode).  She is a violent woman who bully's

all of the women. No cast mate should worry that Nene is going to decide their fate on the show because she is jealous of them or do not like them, that is ridiculous.  She is afraid that she is not top dog anymore (which is true) so she is out for blood with the other women.  If this does not change, you will loose tons of fans and this show will no longer be number one.  The world see's  Nene for who she really is, it a shame that you and Bravo don't.

Thanks, I really feel bad for Porsha. Her husband has lost a real good woman. She stuck by him regardless of what anyone said and he can just walk away from this marriage as if it never existed? He must have not been really " in love" with her and there is a difference between saying I love you and being 100% in love with a person mind body and soul.

I find your responses to cast members honest yet censored some what..your ability to be compatible with most is probably why you are so successful, but would like to see more involvement and open expression...you are a fave and my daughter and I have enjoyed BRVO since day one...thanks, Katherine

If you replace one of the Atlanta housewives, please replace Kenya. Let her twirl, twirl, twirl, someplace else.

I think Heather will be the next divorced house wife.  Heather treats Terry like he his her worst enemy, so sad.

Kim needs to distance herself from her manipulative sister she does not care for her,she wants to be the it girl,that is all she is about.She wants to be about friends.I lost respect for her last season when i saw her disgusting treatment toward her sister.She barely ever has her sister's back,and now to see her husband disrespected whether it was his place or not its up to her to tell him not Brandi. Her true colors are being shown now by Lisa who feels the sting now.I dont know why she thought it would be different with her.Kyle rarely defends her sister and husband. Lisa and Yolanda  are so phony and materialistic but dont know anything about true friendship and loyalty.Yolanda is another phony who was speaking down to every woman there with her sweetheart and all Kyle and the other woman can say to Brandi and Yolanda is your beautiful and i like you and think you are a great person.Its pathetic ,if Nene Leakes was on this show, i bet Yolanda  and Brandi would be in tears and their true insecurities would show.They are weak but pretend like they are right  because the other woman are more concerned with being popular than being respected.Brandy would need a brandy once i finished with her.She is a vindictive snake and being used for Lisa's cause but when they are done with her,she is going to be sorry about all the instigating and sabotaging people's relationships..All these females have no class in my opinion.Leann Rimes is now  sorry she ever had any involvement with Brandi's ex because she too like  Adrienne is  feeling the wrath and putting eveyone thru hell for what her ex did to her.A woman scorned is now on a rampage to destroy other people's lives, and relationships ,even Leann almost had a nervous breakdown the other day because of Brandi.People need to stop pretending like they can't see that what Brandi is doing is morally wrong.Mauricio is the only one that can speak the truth.Again i say, if Brandi spoke to my husband like that she would not be so easily off the hook. Brandi, and Kyle should be ashamed of themselves.

Andy, please please can we get rid of Brandi she is mean, classless, and a bore she has no relevance on the show...so what Lisa likes her.

The other thing I forgot to say this is the first time on a reunion show you looked bored....I'm talking about Miami...

First of course I love you Andy Cohen... Who doesn't! Second I'm hoping after the reunion of Miami you will cancel the show.. It's the worst housewife show... Second I been wondering for along time if you were the shoe salesman in the Sex & The City episode where Charlotte is trying to learn how to be blind & loses Carrie in Barney's . Carrie is trying on shoes in the background & it certainly looks like your the salesman....

Any way love most of the shows on Bravo maybe because I've lived in south FL for over 37 yrrs this show isn't good at all...

Take care,

Just saw Andy at the Bravo Clubhouse. My hubby and I donated to a very worthy St. Louis Charity and won the opportunity to visit the set in NYC. Andy Cohen is the king of reality because he is as real as it comes. He was truly welcoming and gracious towards us. He took pictures and made sure we left with a signed book and some swag. Andy represents not just St. Louis well but he reps for the Housewife cities and NBC pretty darn well too. He's our star maker. Stay 'Real' A.C.

Hello Andy!!!

This a little late but I have to tell you that Larry King was Wonderful! Please use his one liners instead of Kim G:s. He had me laughing. You may have to rewatch the show but it would be worth it.

I am an avid fan........from the beginning I have had a great respect for the absolute genius in developing this series.........however I just finished viewing the Jill interview....WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!!!!!!!!! If you put her on to see how the fans would react and are thinking of bringing her back........PLEASE FORGET IT.........she has not changed one bit it is always the same old crap with her......... Did she convenient ly forget that Bethany tried several times to make up with her and renew the friendship Example of same old same old in one breath she said I am a lot of things but I am not stupid ......then she said I was stupid about whatever I can not even remember what is was about,by that time I had almost tuned her out..... Jill casts a ridiculous shadow over the franchise ..... The N.Y. Show is fine the way it is very classy (even Ramona)

This is random but love you, love the book, love your cutie patootie face - LOVE IT ALL. You are my Susan Lucci. Total side note: I just re-watched the season 4 reunion of RHWONY and I that it was just PMS last time for me (and you) but DAMN that really was most intolerable with the constant squawking and desperation to be relevant...and that was with the magic of editing so I cannot imagine what it was like to be in that room! You should have slapped those bitches with a wet glove. Anyway - glad you shook up the line up there and can't wait to watch what happens!

After watching recent Nj&NY housewives, not only am I afraid someone is going to get hurt but I am really embarassed for them. Love you Andy, but really, they are outta control. Be careful. Scary, honestly..like a train wreck that was stoppable, but nobody put on the brakes.

Belated Happy Birthday dear Andy! Mazel with the success of your very entertaining book. Loved you on Howard - so funny to hear you as the "real" person you are. My thoughts on the HW - Tamra has got to go - her so called jokes are so NOT funny, and she is just the epitome of a mean girl! NJ - please let Caroline and Jacqueline go (although it's very clear you love the Manzos) - when they are on the screen, I change the channel. If this season's reunion is going to be another Teresa bashing, I will tune out. NY - Why the heck is LuAnn back? She is the most condescending person ever? The rest of the new cast members seem interesting (well not Heather), so hopefully, it will be a good season. Miss seeing your adorable face this week on WWHL!

Hi Andy! Long time fan and viewer! Love you to bits! Watching WWHL makes me smile and laugh the whole time!

Please read the blogs on RHOC. There are many very unhappy viewers over the airing of the treatment of Alexis in CR. Both Tamra and Heather went too far and need to give Alexis and viewers an apology. It was very painful to watch and sad if that is needed in their minds to obtain ratings. No one should have to be bullied like that by anyone let alone on television. What will Alexis' children think of how their mother was treated and how will both Tamra and Heather's children feel about the poor behavior their mothers showed to someone who is suppose to be a friend and if not that at least a co-worker on cable television?

Andy, Time to get rid of Tamra, Gretchen and Heather from Housewives of OC. These three women are so mean and think that they are better than Alexis. Vickie was right, Alexis is drop dead gorgeous and they are so jealous of her. Get of those three for good and we might start watching RHOC again

Andy: Help! RHONY used to be my favorite, but it's just gotten so negative. I was glad to hear the release of many of the most negative cast members (ie Jill), but wow, it's just started again. I think we need Bethanney back on here :).

I think Kim Fields needs to be your jackal on an episode. Egads! It was so uncomfortable to watch!! I think it is time for Vicki and Tamra to exit OC. A little spin on OC. Also, please be fair with the reunions. Please dont' let everyone gang up on Alexis on OC. Same with everyone ganging up on Teresa! I think it is time for "BIG" mouth Caroline to go, along with Jac. Melissa is my least favorite housewife, but with Caroline and Jac gone it could totally be Teresa's family!! Or is it what everyone in my circle says about you Andy? That certain housewives and in this instance Caroline in is your back pocket. It seems like Kim RIchards is another one on Beverly HIlls!! Just sayin!

loved you on Howard, Andy...great interview! Howard even wants to hang with you in the Hamptons this summer...LOVES IT! lol you are very much comfortable in your own skin and its enjoyable to watch. i also love how you avoided any disparaging remarks about any of the cast. classy. p.s.- HUGE KUDOS on the new RHONY intro. totally hit the mark and really says, PARK / MADISON AVE NEW YORK. truly represents. love the fresh blood on the show. i haven't watched since Bethenny left, but now i'm back. fun times! :-D

Reading your book and loving it. I am acutally laughing out loud while reading. Just saying, a little confused on the casting of the new 3 RHWNY. I am finding it hard to tell the difference between the 3 woman. They all kinda look alike.

Watching the shows this season has been painful...every one is out to get each other, I appreciate good drama but substance please. Tonight's NYC premiere was embarrassing to watch and it was my favorite..too much water over the bridge for any of them to move forward, just sad:( NJ is getting as bad as Miami was and I just don't get the OC, they keep changing their perspective on each other and life..all for the audience--no sincerity and nothing Real about any of them..

Hi Andy,

Please fire Caroline and her daughter Lauren from the show. I have to change the channel every time they are on.

Andy! For some reason my DVR missed taping the finale of Bethenny Ever After and it is NOT on Bravotv.com or replayed on air. This is awful! The Real Housewives are repeated at least 26 times, but no Bethenny?? Come on, give a girl a break!!

Andy happy belated birthday from one Gemini to another. I will miss you these next few weeks, have great book signings and come back recharged and ready to go.

Teresa being on the next show, that should be interesting. I will watch it because you are back again. It would be fun to try other 60's/70's shows and have a pair on. Like The Waltons, Bill Cosby Show, Eight Is Enough, Happy Days, MASH, Brady Bunch and such. I would venture to say that they are not all Mindy's and Kim's. Kim looked like she just couldn't put enough distance between her and Mindy's chair. Sad really and we were all so looking forward to the show.

I would love to see more HughniBrow Atchenson!! Maybe he didn't raise enough on his charity to cut his brows, but having him back on could help that.

Bravo on WWHL...best thing to come to late night TV in a very long time.

Keep on "doin' that thing you do".

Jules in WA State!!

(PS Portland OR would love to have you at a book signing, just sayin')

@Marie12 I disagree. They appear to be a team and he acts like he is not bothered by it. I think he can put her in her place. We just have not seen it on TV.

 @Mdr1961 Please don't. Or if you do make one show with Jill, Kenya and Vicky. They can drive each other nuts....more nuts. Jill was so nasty to Bethany. I really hope Bethany has nothing to do with her. Vicky is the hypocrite to end all hypocrites. Although Kenya gives her a run for her money in that department. Don't these women watch the show. They say stuff then deny it. It's on tape. What balls!
