Andy Cohen Reveals His Drunkest 'WWHL' Moment
He also plays "Shag, Marry, Kill" with Oprah, Mariah and Cher!
Andy is opening up about the time he got drunkest as Clubhouse host and it seems the earliest days of WWHL were also the rowdiest. "That was very early on when we were on once a week at midnight on Thursday nights," he tells TV Guide in a new interview. "I thought it was incredible that I could drink on the show. I would really slam them back and they would bring me a new drink during commercial break. I thought I was Dean Martin. I really should take a look at what I looked like. But the early days I did used to get hammered."
The same can't be said about his guests: Andy reveals that some recent celebs have also knocked back a few too many. "We have a whole galaxy," Andy says, referring to the hard-partiers who've swung through the Clubhouse. "Ricki Lake got really hammered one night. The legendary episode from a few years ago, 227 star Jackee and Regina King, they were trending on Twitter for three days."
Andy is also known to ask his interview subjects to play a round of "Shag, Marry, Kill." But TV Guide took the opportunity to pose the scenario to Andy—with three of his recent high-profile guests, Oprah, Mariah and Cher. "Who am I going to shag?" he asks. "See, you're tempted to marry Oprah for many of the benefits that Oprah has. I'm going to marry Cher and shag Oprah, because if you shag Oprah you get a jet that says 'I shagged Oprah.' And then, Mariah, whom I love, she's on fire, but yes, I would kill her."
