Paging all Downton Abbey fans: Have you been longing for a reality show similar to the plot threads that has made Abbey one of the most hyped shows of the past year? Andy Cohen says Bravo's got one coming up that will get your sails blowing.

In an interview with The New York Times over the weekend, the Watch What Happens Live host said that he wishes that Abbey -- the snarky "upstairs-downstairs" period drama that shows both a wealthy British family and their servants and has become a critical darling both in the UK and abroad -- was Bravo's first scripted show. While that may not be the case, he hints that the upcoming show Below Deck isn't too far off.

"We've been wanting to do an Upstairs, Downstairs reality show like that, and we actually have one we're doing called Below Deck. It's kind of like "Downton Abbey" on a private yacht."

Sticking along the lines of Bravo reflection, Cohen also says that "Bravo is bi," and that it "would be open to going home with whomever it wanted to go home with at the end of the night."

He also opened up about his transition from exec to talent, his crossed eyes and the Russell Armstrong suicide. Read it all on the Times' site.
