How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

In a March 23 interview with Access, the Watch What Happens Live host opened up about the last year of his life. “The one bright, bright light of the pandemic for me has been Ben. I could honestly say that he saved my life," Andy shared. "I don’t know what I would have been doing for the last year. The time that I’ve gotten to spend with him.” 

The proud dad went on to share an update on the new things his son has learned, adding, “He’s just started saying, 'I love you.' He’s getting more words every day.” 

Andy was also asked about a hilarious video he shared to Instagram on March 2 in which his close friend, Anderson Cooper, is seen chasing Ben in circles around a toy elephant. 

“The funny thing is, that video which I posted, we hang out every weekend with the boys,” Andy explained, referring to Anderson’s baby boy, Wyatt. “Anderson chases Ben around in circles every single weekend. So I have a variation of that same video. I have like, five variations… It makes me so happy looking at those videos, and I finally said to Anderson, ‘I’m posting this. I can wait no more.’ You know, we kill time between naps together very well.”
