The Phrase "Alternative Facts" Was Used at the Atlanta Reunion, and Andy Cohen Totally Saw This Coming
The #WWHL host teases an "amazing" #RHOA reunion moment.
Kellyanne Conway grabbed headlines in January when she said that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer gave "alternative facts" when he inaccurately described the attendance at President Donald Trump's inauguration as "the largest ever" during an interview with Meet the Press.
It wasn't long before Andy Cohen pointed out that "alternative facts" seemed like a phrase made for The Real Housewives. "I'm taping the Beverly Hills reunion in a couple of weeks, and I'm waiting for Lisa Rinna to be like, 'Well, that's an alternative fact,'" the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host said during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers in January.
Well, it looks like Andy's prediction has come true. "We had two Atlanta Housewives screaming 'alternative facts' at each other during the reunion last week," Andy revealed to his WWHL guests Erika Girardi and Meghan McCain during Tuesday night's After Show.
Everyone in the Bravo Clubhouse agreed that was an "amazing" occurrence, especially Meghan, the daughter of long-time U.S. Senator John McCain who co-hosts Outnumbered on FOX News. "It was my favorite by far. I love it more than anything. I will always love 'alternative facts,'" she said. "Now I say it all the time."
Andy has also previously compared Kellyanne to The Real Housewives of D.C.'s Michaele Salahi. But he has also said that he sees her fitting right in on The Real Housewives of New York City. "I think she'd get along with Ramona [Singer] and I think she would be at odds with Carole [Radziwill] and Bethenny [Frankel]," he told Mic earlier this month.
