Normal Office Conversation

Who doesn't talk about tits in the workplace?

Hello there, my name is Lindsey, and I am an Associate Producer on Watch What Happens Live. Just like you, I am a huge fan of all things Bravo and love that a large part of my job consists of watching hours and hours of Bravo shows!

Another fun part of my job is getting to help create the remixes you see on our show. To get the season started off right, Andy and our producers decided we had to make a Milania Mega Mix for Sunday’s show with Teresa and Joe. I had the pleasure of compiling all our favorite Milania moments and jumbling them up into a crazy remix with our fantastic editor, James. Wednesday’s hilarious Grandma Edith remix, where we looped her saying “tits” multiple times, was just another day in the office. I had no trouble telling James when, where, and how often “tits” needed to be used within the remix. That’s totally normal office conversation, right? Right!

After all our remix clips are completed and the clock ticks closer to show time, my job (along with some other fabulous ladies) is to patrol the internet and read all of your Facebook comments, tweets, texts, and emails. I am always amazed at how many great questions we get every night. We love to read what you all are thinking and are always laughing out loud at your hilarious commentary. Clearly on Sunday I NEEDED to pull the question from @MollyEdington: Will Joe Giudice please do the splits? Never did I think our dream would come true – but to my delight Joe gave the splits a go! Perhaps Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga DO have something in common -- they are both unable to turn down a dare!

We got Ramotional on Monday with Ramona and a Ramona impersonator. After the show, Mario took this picture and it blew my mind!

Tuesday night turned into a cake-tastrophe (but this time in a good way, unlike #CakeGate in the O.C.) when Gretchen Rossi and Niecy Nash were blindfolded and forced to dig through cake to find a fake diamond. This special WWHL moment was made possible by our swift production assistants who managed to sneak a coffee table, two cakes, and plenty of napkins into the studio within 25 seconds. After the game was over, our PAs removed the whole mess just as quickly during the commercial break and helped to get Niecy and Gretchen clean. While running into the studio to give Andy the latest Twitter questions, I found this in the hallway. Midnight snack anyone?

It was great to be back in the Clubhouse this week! Andy makes this job a blast each and every day. He certainly is the king of late-night fun! See you all next week.

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.
