The Daily Dish Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen

Why Does Sarah Jessica Parker Bring Andy Cohen to the Met Gala Instead of Husband Matthew Broderick?

The actor thinks the #WWHL host has some explaining to do.

Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker have become a staple of the Met Gala's red carpet over the years. Whether SJP is rocking a Hamilton-inspired look or turning heads with a fiery Philip Treacy headpiece, she and Andy are consistently one of the fiercest duos at the event. 

How to Watch

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

We all know that Andy and Sarah Jessica have been good friends for years, so it makes sense that the two would be by each other's side as they hit up this most fabulous of red carpets together. Well, until you remember the fact that Sarah Jessica is married to an equally wonderful gent, Matthew Broderick. 

So when Andy and Matthew came face-to-face in the Bravo Clubhouse during Tuesday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, viewers were dying to know why Sarah Jessica always chooses Andy to be her date for one of the starriest nights of the year instead of her significant other. "Yeah, I wanted to ask you that," Matthew joked to Andy (clip above).

When the WWHL host seriously asked if that bothered Matthew, he had an answer that a good husband and friend would say. "No, 'cause you love it, right? And you're great friends," he said.

But the real reason Matthew doesn't attend the Met Gala is probably because Sarah Jessica prefers to spend the evening with Andy. "But then one time they said there was something wrong with that, so I said I should go now, and she said, 'No, I like when Andy takes me,'" Matthew explained. 

Well, Matthew, at least your fellow WWHL guest Kyra Sedgwick said you're not missing much. "It is boring," she told Andy. "I only went once. I was never invited back." 

Sarah Jessica gave her two cents on whether or not Matthew minds never attending the Met Gala with her when she appeared on WWHL in October. "First of all, he's always doing a play, right? But also I think he feels like that's our thing, that's our special thing," the Divorce star told Andy. "He'll go see it as a civilian." 

Since the Met Gala is really all about the fashion, which stunning look is Sarah Jessica's absolute favorite? Find out what she (and Andy) had to say, below.
