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 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
sorry, cant find the blog on the Kathy w/Andrew Dice Clay interview -- just wanted to say that oh boy was Andrew D Clay giving you the death glare!! oh ho!! You really pushed his buttons!
If you replace one of the Atlanta housewives, please replace Kenya. Let her twirl, twirl, twirl, someplace else.
Andy, My boyfriend (haha) i caught him watching your show all by himself ( and he's a hater) If you can transcend bounderies like that you are magic and i adore u ,, as does my dude - although he'll deny it ! love love
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 think Heather will be the next divorced house wife. Heather treats Terry like he his her worst enemy, so sad.
@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.
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...
@Mdr1961 .....I disagree. We have had enough of that. If TV wants her she will be made an offer.
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.
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)
Love Caroline, Melissa, Jacqueline and Kathy. Time for Teresa to get the pink slip. She is too toxic to watch anymore and needs serious help!!
Andy, I love ya!! Keep up the good work! Really how was the reunion for RHONJ?? Did Teresa hit you? If she did, I will kick her booty!! hahahah Can you please explain to her what COINKIDINK means.. hahahhaahah
What was that??? Both Kim and Mindy looked like they were in pain. They need to lighten up already... Bummer Andy, You deserved better!!!
You can totally tell that Kim Fields did not want to be there. Her body was positioned as far away as possible even though I think she loosened up a little near the end. Mindy Cohn was big fun though.
I absolutely LOVE you and your show in the club house. You are soooooo cute and I have to admit, you've starred in a dream of mine recently. hahaha Would love to meet you some day and get your autograph on your new book. Sending m'love. Kathleen
Hey Andy!!! I just want to say the GORGA kids are beautiful!!! Those kids are sooooo cute and I like how happy the kids look. They are some little angels. I love to see happy kids, because money do not make kids happy. Love, time, communication, support and showing attention make so many children happy. I just love looking at those beautiful kids. I use to take my 2 kids pictures like they do and spend so much time with them.
Well I thought the reunion between the 2 was a little boring. What did they think they were there for....to talk about current events. Good grief. I wish you would have a reunion show with the Queer Eye guys, and I wish you would bring back that show or a version of it. I missed a lot of the epis and can't find them in reruns anywhere. I LURVE those guys!!!!
Hi Andy, First of all...Fantastic book!!! What an interesting life!!! You are living proof that - thoughts are things, and everything we achieve in life starts with a dream.
I look forward to the New York Housewives new line up.
I hope you will consider taking a broom to Orange County. It is VERY HARD to watch Tamra. Thank you Andy...By the way - Watch What Happens Live is the most interesting and intimate late night TV Show since Johnny Carson left the Tonight Show.
I'm so glad you gave us a little background story about the show last night. While I was watching I was thinking aawwwkwwaard. It was disheartening to see how much they are over their characters! Facts of life had such a huge cultural impact! I get that it has been 25 years, but fans don't have a sense of time!! On the other hand, you handled it well. I still enjoyed the show.
I was really looking forward to this episode and then was really disappointed at the way Kim was acting. She took the wind out of my sails with her grumpy attitude. Of course I still enjoyed the show. You were awesome as usual.
By the way Andy… Have you thought about having the drinking game alert sponsored? Or “It’s time to play plead the fifth, brought to you by your favorite fifth of: (insert Vodka Sponsors name here)” Thanks for making night time TV fun. Stan
It's funny you said that about Miss Kim Fields, because last night as I watched WWHL, I thought to myself "Man, how snobby can Kim Fields be!?? And Andy was sooo looking forward to them coming on, bet he regrets that!!!" LOL then I kept watching her body language and it was like she didn't even want to look or speak to Mindy. Weird. Then she kept doing her big LAUGH! I was like "What is her problem!?" Oh well better luck next time. I think you need to get Miss Nancy McKean on instead! Love watching you & your show!
Please FIRE Tamra. RHWOC has become unwatchable because of her. Alos, Vicki and her crazy self needs to go too!!
The Facts of Life reunion was kind of disappointing. Both women seem to think they are more fabulous than they actually are. Mindy Cohn seemed downright cranky. I couldn't believe she wouldn't do the Velma voice. It wasn't your fault, you were your usual wonderful self. Love you, watch you every night. Thanks for bringing the Kathy show to Bravo, she is fantastic!
Hello Andy and Happy Birthday!!! I love your show and the AfterShow As well. I wish there was more of the AfterShow but i UNDERSTAND TIMEconstrictions. You make me very Happy and I love you for that. You are a very good looking man also but your spirit and joy of life shines through the MOST. Love and Much Respect from St Louis your home town. Monica T. (MAZEL FOREVER TO YOU)
Hello Andy and Happy Birthday! Do you know you are a gemini just like Prince! Who Knew! Much Love from St Louis and I hope you continue to be your happy and content self. Looking forward to reading your book as well. LLaters Monica T. in St Louis.
Love you, Andy, and your book (halfway through it now). I'm also a big Facts of Life fan, but it looked like Mindy Cohn didn't wanna be there at first. i'm glad she loosened up for the second half of the show. Love her!
Andy - I think you are great and I love watching your show. Please keep the special guests coming. Any way you can keep the crazies from happening at the reunions? Don't care to watch NeNe run her mouth...
Hi Andy, my English grammar may be the best (I moved to USA at age 30, I am 41 now) but i have to tell you ask you to please, do not let Orange County housewives make us feel bad for watching it. Change some of the cast or moderate Tamara, she is probably desesperate trying to make drama thinking that that will keep her in the show forever!!! it was terrible watching in last night's show how Heather, Tamara and Gretchen put down Alexis, that was not ok.
I had really been looking forward to the Facts reunion. I was really bummed. Sure they have gone on to do great things but....this was their start....indulge your fans. I thought they seemed a tad embarrassed and defensive. Lighten up, Ladies.
Love you Andy. Would love to have a few cocktails with you - you're so much fun. Like you, I had high expectations of last night's Facts mini-reunion. Sadly, it was pretty boring (although you were your energetic self). Kim came off a little "above" the subject and Mindy seemed downright bitchy. will miss you so much for 2 weeks and I really hope you GRILL that wack-job Teresa when you come back. Please make her answer the uncomfortable questions and not allow her to avoid the subjects! Have a blast in Vegas and I hope you enjoy yr time off :).
I love you soooooooooo much, Andy. You make me laugh out loud every night. I like every thing about you. You are the real deal. I hope your show goes on forever!!!!!!!!!!! And it's going to be a bleak 2 weeks while the show is off. I haven't missed one show since you came on. And the after show is icing on the cake! Love you, Andy.
I felt for you Andy. It was painful to watch Kim Fields and Mindy Cohn. Why are they so bitter? Child stars turned Diva's! It was 30 minutes of their time and they pulled that stunt? "Fact's of Life" jumpstarted any careers they have had and they should thank their lucky stars for it! Ungrateful and Rude! You pulled it off as much as you could. I am sure you were disappointed because you were so excited to see them :-/ #Superbadguests
I think Mindy was fun (i would bet she doesn't care for kim fields and that was setting a tone for her) but you can tell kim fields thinks she is something "real special" NOT The face she made when you said maybe mindy was richer was priceless. Well, just plan ugly actually. Miss Fields need to get over herself!!!!!!!!!!! She is no J lo!
