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

on Sep 14, 20120

I was SHOCKED at the sheer poundage of diamonds Real Housewife of Miami, Lea Black, wore on the show like it was not a big deal at all! Seriously, if you ever wonder how some Housewives keep their arms toned, it’s from hoisting their jewels around. Who needs wrist weights?

Andy always tells us that when it comes to the Real Housewives of any city, it’s the little details that other people might not even notice that truly tickle him the most. What someone orders for lunch or a hug that goes on just one second too long are what he finds most thrilling. Well, this week, I can honestly say that of all the things that happened during the premiere week of Watch What Happens Live, my number one favorite moment was one that, for all I know, I very well may have been the only person to take note of. During Monday’s episode with actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum and New York Housewife Heather Thomson, I was standing in the studio watching the ladies field Andy’s every question with aplomb, when I shifted my focus from what was happening in real life in the chairs in front of me to what was being captured by the cameras on the monitor. As Heather spoke, our two bartenders, Chippendales dancers Billy and JJ, stood behind the bar dutifully chopping lemons and limes, their torsos framed in the shot. And every time Billy cut into a piece of fruit, his bulging pectoral muscle involuntarily bobbed up and down right next to Heather’s talking head. Remember those old sing-along cartoons where you were supposed to follow the bouncing ball? Yeah, it was kind of like that. I hope everyone at home was listening to Heather, because I’m sure whatever she was saying was very important, but all I could focus on was Billy’s buoyant breast meat and trying not to die of laughter.

I guess if I had to choose a second favorite moment, it was when another bartender, long lost Jonas Brother “Merv” made his pecs do a little dance for us. What can I say? I guess I’m a boob girl!

Bravo-Teresa is adored by many of the viewers and I don't think people should try to "take her down" based on what her husband sometimes says.  You aren't responsible for what comes out of your spouse's mouth and she seems to get the wrath.  Her husband using his brothers info to get a license ....this alone tells you how he makes bad decisions.  I think that people need to realize this and not punish Teresa- enough already! She has been crucified and it's not changing our minds- it makes her look like a saint and everyone else as adolescents playing games.

Bravo.... Glad you didn't mention Teresa as being a favorite guest on WWHL, because she just seemed not into being there SUNDAY night. She did get a dig or two out though. I'm not a fan of hers.. Thanks

Andy, I love the new Miami HW's. You and Bravo seem to love Mama Elsa, as everyone does.

 Nobody is trying to "take her down". Teresa does not want the other women to be successful, only her.

 Sorry gini, I don't agree.  It ranks up there with the Washington DC one for me!
