Producer's Blog

WWHL’s production assistant gets in the holiday spirit as he looks back at the festive week that was.

on Dec 14, 20120

Growing up, I was never one for Christmas decoration. It always seemed such a pain in the ass, because, just like winter weight, you put it on, and suddenly you are left with the tedious task of taking it off. However, this being my first Christmas in the Clubhouse, I realize now how rewarding it can be to bring happiness to millions of viewers via sparkling strands of Pier-1 garland and carefully placed Jonathan Adler dreidels littered (and glittered) about the set.  

While adorning the Clubhouse with such festive trinkets, I thought of RHOBH’s Yolanda, and what joy she derived from impressing her guests with ornate décor. And there I was, decorating for the entertainment for America. Better step it up, I thought. WWYD?

With the stockings hung high, and the season’s end nigh, I grew sad to see the Clubhouse prepare to go dark for a few weeks until Season 9. Perhaps I have grown intoxicated from the seasonal cheer, if not the seasonal beer, and I try to take values taught to us from each night of the season’s last week. They are values that pertain not only to the holiday spirit, but also to life as we know it (which, if the Mayans and Kirsten Dunst are right, is only on planet earth—and not for long).

Do I get the feeling that bethenny may not be light and refreshing to work with...shocker!!! One only has to watch a 90 second clip from her shows to see the shameless self promotion...but there is something hysterical about the in-your-faceless of it! All that judgement aside, we love watching her and her commentary, either her own or scripted for her, is super funny. And she can deliver a line! Looking forward to her talk show this summer! Hope she makes more appearances in WWHL

Exactly why is it the housewives do not have to blog each week? Thanks for the anticipated response...

Hi Andy,

 

I would love to see a "Where are they now" with past housewives. Like the originals from the OC, crazy Kelly from NYC, and DeShawn and Lisa Wu from Atlanta.  I think it would be fun to see what they are all up to since Bravo. Pleeeeeese

Hi Andy Cohen!!

 

Have you & your production team ever given any thought to casting "The Real Housewives of Honolulu, Hawaii?!?! This would be a good one in my opinion!!!!

Hello???? Anybody home???? When are the NY Housewives coming back? Just read Sonja hasn't been signed on yet.... Hope that is not true! Gladly get rid of LuAnn, Aviva. Romona and Sonja are the show! Carol is ok too, but you just have to keep Sonja and Romona! Bring them back quick please!

Lisa Rinna. Wow. I made it through another season of RHOBH for my wife, but if you put her on the show next year.... I'm out. And I'm forbidding my wife from watching anything in this channel.

I really do not understand Chelsea Handler's attitude on WWHL. She seemed annoyed to be on the show. She needs to get over herself. She can be funny, but she wasn't funny on the show. I felt sorry for poor Ricky!

What the f*ck was up with Chelsea Handler!? My God, please don't ever have her on again.

I would like Andy to ask his female guests to tell what brand and shade of lipstick, lipliner, and/or lipgloss they are wearing.  It's the number one thing I wonder when I watch the show.  WOMEN WANT TO KNOW AND THEY GOOGLE FOR THIS INFO ALL THE TIME! I want to know what lipstick Stassi wore last night. When Yolanda was on I was wondering, when Nene was on I wanted to know, Brandi same thing, Lisa from Miami same question, I could go on and on.  It could be a new feature that every guest reveals the brand and color they are wearing that night, as well as the color they most commonly wear on their own show.  EVERY WOMAN WANTS TO KNOW THIS! It make it much easier to copy their make up look by knowing the lipstick color.  

Thank you

Sarah from VA

The judges in Top Chef made a huge mistake in sending Kristin home over Josie.  Obviously they don't know how to judge, particularly Padma who seemed to have some hidden agenda against Kristin.    If you have any say in this, PLEASE MAKE THINGS RIGHT!  Send Padma packing and replace her with a judge who at least has a sense of fairness....perhaps even Kristin.  She definitely has admirable qualities, like class and integrity!

I just wanted to plead and whine to you to PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, take Shahs off of Bravo. This show is hideous and turns my stomach. Turn the channel and don't watch it you say? Well, I don't tune into it. I know it's on Sunday evenings but have another program that I watch instead of tuning into Bravo, but I like your network and need rehab for all the Housewives of ... that I watch, but really, Shahs???

 

Come on Bravo, they all turn my stomach and I'm certain that there are hundreds like me that feel the same. What they show on camera, shows absolutely nothing to offer. It may be something completely different after the cameras are off that you don't choose to show because it may not make for good TV in your eyes, but seriously, every single one of them is disgusting.

I love you Andy, but I'm disappointed that you had Cesar Millan BEHIND THE BAR.  He is a star and should have been sitting right next to Lisa!   :o(

GG is a catastrophe for the show. I could never get into it because her behavior is too sickening.The simple fact she is repeatedly part of the show seems to endorse her behavior. 

 

Sorry but I do not want any part of it.

Dear Bravo,  Please fire Porsha and bring back Sheree..."who gonna check me boo?"  Kenya + Sheree = Ratings gold right there!!!

Bravo should make it a requirment that all cast members must blog after each episode.

I'll throw in for that too. She is sickening AND scary. I'm really uncomforable watching her. Too volatile.....which leads me to KENYA!  wtf??? Where did she wash up from?  Did the others have to sign a waiver to be around her? Hazard pay, hazard pay!!!

Id pay to watch that piece of nothing get in a real fight...shes just so used to being the loudest and "baddest" in a group of Non Fighters (everyones like 30 and 40 yrs old on that show & shes running around acting like shes a 10 yr old schoolyard bully)... She knows that noone in that group is foolish enough to actually lower themselves by getting into a physical fight with her, so she Huffs & Puffs at everyone and they all just ignore her stupdity...Then she walks away thinking she WON some big bad fight. Its soooooooooo lame! But if you could put that dumbass on The Bad Girls Club or bring one of The Bad Girls Club girls on the show,,,THEN THAT WOULD BE RATINGS GOLD!

Who do we (Bravo viewers) go to, to let someone know that GG from Shahs of Sunset needs to be taken off the show. I couldnt stomach that show last season because of her. But the addition of Lilly and more Reza has made me a fan,,but then GG has her scenes and they are soooo Fake and Acted. Its like "ok we get it...your possibly an alcoholic that may or may not end up in rehab"...or whatever her storyline is supposed to be. Who knows...the girl has absolutely nothing going on in her life, so there isnt even a real storyline...just her ACTING to try to stay on the show.

She needs to be put on The Bad Girls Club since she thinks she can kick everyones ass (at 30 years old). Shes just so played out and lame...and she wont even put up a blog because she knows it will be full of Bravos fans demanding that she be taken off the show.

Anyhow...hope Bravo listens because I know Im not the only one who has to fast forward through GGs scenes. Shes such an empty piece of nothing...Not educated, Not self made, Not even wealthy (she lives off her parents)...Id rather watch a dog taking a crap then have this piece of Nothing interrupt an otherwise decent show.

Just wanted to let you know that I loved seeing Mama Elsa on WWHL,the other night. She is pure enterainment. She has tickled me ever since the first time I saw her on the RHOM. She has a great wit, and Mark Consuelos was a good co-guest, he was really funny and completely adorable as he rolled with her style. It's always nice to see someone show gentleman-like respect.,,,,,,,,,, Great blog, and the WWHL set had some sparkling good cheer. Happy Holidays!

q@asianhousewife I can't stand Lisa Rhinna! Bad actress-come to think of it, when was the last time she really did act? She is, egotistical, and a big gossip. Guess she'll blend in with those women perfectly!!!!

@ChristyO Ummmm, no, shahs is amazing. However, I'm with you on GG, I'm completely over her, I would rather you hire her sister. Reza is awesome and hasn't gotten too full of himself....yet.

@Toletha i was disappointed as well...i wanted him...to explain Giggy to us....as in what would a dog like Giggy be thinking when he is allowed to sit at his neighbors fancy dinner table dressed in purple velvet drinking from a lovely peice of crystal.....why doesn't Giggy seem to smile...or have any facial expression...i got the feeling he was afraid of giggy

@WatchWhatHappens Oh gosh....I agree....I have no idea why Sheree did not come back this season......i don't want to sound like a mean girl...but I have yet to understand the thinking, mindset, personality, maturity level and overall viewer appeal of Porsha...but thats ok, i would probably not be likeable on the show either...but then again, I am not lokking to be on the show....I am just a lowly viewer, what do i know?

 @k217  @HappyItaliani would love to see her dressed in that costume that carol burnette wore (the drapery rod with the drapes on it) in a skit they did that was a take-off on "gone with the wind."   now that would be funny, and oh so fitting for kenya.
