He's the master of the Real Housewives franchise and the host of Watch What Happens Live, so obviously Andy Cohen knows what people and characters makes for good television—and that includes the leaders of the free world.
While promoting his new book The Andy Cohen Diaries in our nation's capital, the author and producer opened up about who he'd like to see on reality TV. And he's hoping First Lady might take the plunge into docu-series terrain.
"I would like the 'Michelle Obama and her staff' reality show," he tells The Washington Post. "I'd like to see her and her team and what really goes on there. I think that's fascinating."
Even if the First Lady isn't game for reality TV, Andy is hoping she'll pay a visit to the Clubhouse one day. Earlier this year, Andy revealed that they talked about welcoming her as a guest. "I think that's a thing we could do later in Barack's second term," he said. "[And] I'd just like to see her drinking something other than water, frankly."
While visiting D.C., Andy was also asked about why the nation's capital isn't a good location for reality television—including Bravo's Real Housewives of D.C..
"Obviously, the people that have been cast in D.C. haven't been the right people," he says, referring to all shows that film in the town. "The people that you would want to cast don't want to reveal everything in front of the camera, and the secret of a great nonfiction docu-series is putting it all out there. A lot of the people that you want to see in front of the camera here aren't going to do that—for good reason."
