WWHL's Supervising Producer reveals her favorite moments of the week.

on Sep 14, 2012

Hi, it’s Caissie from the Watch What Happens Live staff, again. How was your summer? WE MISSED YOU! While kids all over America were getting ready to go back to school, though, we were getting ready to bring you an all new season of Bravo Clubhouse shenanigans!

One of the things I love the most about the show is that no matter how much our staff and Andy prepare, because the show is live, and because the bar is open and the drinks are free, you might as well not even try to predict what’s about to go off during that magical half hour that starts when the clock strikes eleven! (Did I make it sound like the staff drinks during the show just now? None of us do -– that I know of! As a rule, we wait until the show is over and then once a week or so, we’ll have a drink or two in our office together -- which sounds a bit sad now that I’m saying it out loud, but it’s the responsible thing to do when you’re trying to operate all the keyboards and cameras and doo dads you need to get a TV show on the air. The guests and Andy and our audience, though? They have as many real premium alcohol beverages as they like during the broadcast. Trust.)

So far, there have already been a lot of unexpected and memorable moments in the first week of Season 8. I was SURPRISED when Andy spontaneously elicited an apology from the (formerly wicked) Queen of All Media, Perez Hilton, to pass along to Andy’s pal and friend of the show, Sarah Jessica Parker.

I was DELIGHTED when Andy, Kevin Jonas and Lance Bass were able to recreate five Jo Bro boy band photo shoot poses in less than thirty seconds!
