Andrea Denver on Befriending Madonna

From his life as a professional model to his past with the one and only Madonna, there's so much to uncover about Andrea Denver! And the Winter House cast member didn't hold back as he spilled some interesting tidbits about himself during his November 10 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

How to Watch

Watch Winter House on Peacock and the Bravo app.

When a question arose from a virtual fan inquiring about Andrea's rumored relationship with Madonna — who posted and tagged a photo of the Italian model in 2015 — host Andy Cohen pointed out how the male model had rubbed elbows with quite a few celebs that particular year. "That was a big year for you, Kelly Bensimon, Madonna!" This prompted Lindsay Hubbard, who also appeared in the Clubhouse with fellow Winter House cast member Luke Gulbranson, to chime in and ask Andrea, "Who are you?!"

Andrea then went on to reveal all the details, including how he had met the pop icon following the Instagram appreciation post he received from her. "We became friends after that," he told Andy, adding, "She's the best." Andy then urged the Italian model to elaborate, saying, "Andrea, seriously. Hold on, excuse me, you had to have taken [Madonna] as a lover at some point." Andrea hesitated for a moment before he answered, in part, "She is beautiful." Andrea continued to explain how crossed paths with the "Queen of Pop" and dished out more details about their relationship in the clip, above.

Though no one quite reaches the legendary status of Madonna, Andrea was also not shy to discuss with Andy about how he rubbed elbows with The Real Housewives of New York City's Kelly Bensimon.

And if Andrea's abs — which he put on full display during his WWHL appearance — look recognizable, it may be because he was also featured in Jennifer Lopez's "I Luh Ya Papi"  and Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" music videos, along with Madonna's music video for Bitch I'm Madonna" featuring none other than Bravo superfan, Nicki Minaj.

Back in the Clubhouse, Andy made sure to find out even more amazing facts about Andrea, including how the model maintained his six-pack abs. After Andy inquired about whether the Italian model ever indulged in pasta, Andrea replied, "I'm the one who eats the most!" It turns out, Andrea does indeed indulge every so often, as he recently took to his Instagram Stories to share a moment of him enjoying ice cream.

And exactly how did Andrea get the non-Italian last name "Denver" in the first place? Andy inquired about this as well, given that the male model is originally from Verona, Italy. Andrea shared that his last name is actually "Salerno" which prompted Andy to ask, "Why would you change it to 'Denver'?" Andrea's response was somewhat of a surprising one, as he replied, “It’s a long story, to make it short, I’m a huge Denver Nuggets fan."
