Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen is celebrating 15 years! Watch new episodes on Bravo and Peacock and relive the show’s most memorable moments throughout the month of June.

A major Mazel is in order for Andy Cohen! On June 5, the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host celebrated 15 years of the late-night show at an epic party in New York City. Of course, the event included mouthwatering food, fun cocktails, gorgeous decor, and a very special group of Bravolebrity guests. 

How to Watch

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

BOOM at The Standard, High Line was the stunning backdrop for the event, and the venue was decked out with nods to WWHL for the celebration. A gilded mirrored wall near the entrance featured famous phrases from the show, including "It's Shotski Time," "AC in the NYC," and "I Plead the Fifth!" The sleek bar was topped with WWHL cocktail napkins and specialty drink menus offering items including The Clubhouse Fresquila (Tequila, Fresca), Truth Or Gin! (Gin, Violette, Grapefruit, Lemon), and It's Scotch-Ski Time! (Scotch, Ginger, Honey, Lemon, Peated Scotch, Rosemary).

Guests enjoyed passed appetizers such as tuna tartare in lettuce cups, polenta bites, and beef sliders, and there was a massive grazing table with charcuterie, cheese, bread, and more. 

Andy was among the first to arrive with his son, Ben. The guest of honor walked around the room to greet each person there. 

Who attended the WWHL 15th anniversary party? 

As Andy noted in a speech (more on that below), "The Bravo folks that are here are members of our 15-timers club. We invited everyone on Bravo who has been on this show 15 times or more to come." 

Although not everyone invited could make the event, the group in attendance included Amanda BatulaAusten KrollCarl Radke, Craig Conover, Heather GayKyle CookeMargaret Josephs, Melissa Gorga, Paige DeSorbo, Scheana Shay, Teresa Giudice, and Whitney Rose.

RHONJ Husbands Joe Gorga, Joe Benigno, and Luis "Louie" Ruelas were also in attendance, as were Sandra Bernhard, Chicks in the Office co-hosts Francesca Mariano and Ria Ciuffo (who guest bartended on WWHL in 2023), and Bevy Smith, who currently hosts Bevelations on Radio Andy.

Nearly an hour-and-a-half into the party, Andy stood on the bar to make a speech.

"The Boom Boom Room is very special to me and to Watch What Happens Live," he said. "For the first year or two of the show, we were on live at midnight...We came every night after the show and we shut this place down. Literally, the lights would come on and we would be leaving."

Turning his attention to the Bravolebs in the room, Andy stated, "We're so happy that you are all here."

He added with a laugh, "Austen and Craig, and Kyle, and Scheana, I've given you guys... crap on live television, and you have such great senses of humor, and you're just great sports."

Shortly after Andy's toast concluded, the Gay Shark arrived and took photos with Kyle, Carl, and Joe.

At the same time, Scheana, Paige, and Amanda caught up while sitting in a booth, and Teresa, Heather, and Whitney chatted in another area of the room.

Amanda also seemed particularly excited to see Margaret, giving her a big hug to say hello. 

Margaret then made her way over to Melissa, and both were grinning as they talked to Ben and Andy.

Later in the night, Andy, Craig, and Austen caught up at the bar before Andy went to cut a large WWHL-themed sheet cake and take photos. 

Austen watched the cake cutting, and as he made his way to the other side of the room, he enthusiastically high-fived the Gay Shark.

As the party began to wind down, Kyle gave Heather a big hug and then hung out with her and Whitney. Meanwhile, Andy, Craig, and Austen had a final drink at the bar.
