Night after night, Andy Cohen lets viewers into his wacky world on Watch What Happens Live. And, really, there's no better place to house a show as unexpected as WWHL than the Clubhouse. The room is filled with Andy-approved knick knacks and Lite Brite art, as well as weird celebrity items like a painting of Rikki Lake made by her son, a straw once used by pop star Austin Mahone, and a Justin Bieber doll donning a DVF wrap dress. "The concept for the show is that I'm inviting you into my den, basically," he told Us Weekly (more in the clip below). "I would describe the decor as poppy, kitschy, eclectic, cluttered, homey, and personal. It's full of my crap."
And sometimes things can get kind of personal in and around the WWHL studios — like the time that "Lady Gaga peed in the trash can in the dressing room." And as it turns out, one of Gaga's pals, Lisa Vanderpump, has expressed some reservations about the portrait of her prized pooch, Giggy, that lives in the studio.
"Lisa Vanderpump was very concerned that I have a picture of Giggy in the Clubhouse. Giggy really is the mascot of Bravo, I would say," Andy said. "There were times, somehow, where Giggy's picture got moved and I would hear from Giggy himself on Twitter ... It's notable that Giggy's picture is in here, and my own dog's [Wacha] is not. Yeah, very weird."
It's pretty clear from the tour that many of the items hold a personal and special meaning for Andy, but there's one that stands out in particular."My personal favorite item? I love this Snoopy trophy that the folks at Snoopy gave me," he said. "It says 'Top dog, Andy Cohen. The coolest late night host.'" We couldn't agree more!
