Get your popcorn and bong, the Top Chef reunion is tonight at 9 followed by a new episode of Launch My Line. If you haven't started with LML yet, now is the perfect time. I am into it.
I was kidding about the bong.
My cab driver this morning looked just like Kris Kringle and he really dug Rihanna. I betcha the real Santy likes RiRi, too. Anyway, as I was STARING at my driver, I was thinking about how I have nothing to say today, and about all the comments you guys have been posting in the last
few weeks, and how I rarely ever answer them directly. Why don't I give it a whack....
GRETCHEN posted: "Love your show watch every thursday. I just cant get past the xmas decor. Who did that? All I could focuse on last week was the big red Kmart bows. please improve fast."
WELL GRETCHEN, THAT WAS THE WORK OF CHASE AND MARNI WHO WORK ON THE SHOW — AND WE WERE GOING FOR A DELIBERATE KITSCH WITH KWANZA AND XMAS AND CHANUKAH EQUALLY REPRESENTED. THEY'LL BE GONE AFTER THURSDAY NIGHT. YOU CANNOT BEAT OUR GOLD TREE THOUGH. GO WITH ME THERE.
Jenn A said: "I agree that Million Dollar Listing has gotten minimal attention from you on your blog or WWHL. I know Thursday is the facelift reveal (I'm dying) but it would have been nice to have Chad, Chad's hair and Starla on as a guest."
I AGREE JENN, AND BEYOND THAT I WISH WE COULD'VE DONE AN MDL REUNION SHOW!!! I AM CRAZY ABOUT THOSE GUYS AND THAT SHOW!
sherry lake asked: "Hey, love your show, how do I get a Mazel shirt? Thanks."

Ann8162 opined: "I love Bravo and watch the Real Housewives series yet strongly disagree with your decision to award "Jackhole" of the week to 3 women from the Salvation Army collecting money on the sidewalk outside your building bc their religion does not support homosexuality."
I GAVE THEM THE JACKHOLE NOT BECAUSE THEY ALLEGEDLY DON'T LOVE HOMOS, BUT BECAUSE THEY RING THEIR FREAKING BELL BELOW MY WINDOW AND SING (POORLY) INTO A MICROPHONE FOR THE 9 HOURS A DAY I'M IN MY OFFICE. TRY TO ENDURE IT AND YOU MIGHT HIT THEM IN THE FACE, LET ALONE GIVE THEM A WORTHLESS TITLE ON TV.
Katharine in Pasadena kindly said: "Please Andy, my husband adores your dress shirts! He has been in retail his entire career, 20 plus years from Brooks Brothers to Tommy Hilfiger to Guess, please tell me where you get your shirts! And your shoes and your suits, you always do look great! Love you! Love the b*lls on you, makes me miss my years in New York pre kids!"
ALMOST ALL THE CLOTHES I WEAR ON THE SHOW ARE BY RALPH LAUREN BLACK LABEL (INCLUDING THE RL SHOES). THE DRESS SHIRTS ARE EITHER RL BLACK OR FROM AN AMAZING STORE ON GREENE STREET IN SOHO CALLED SEIZE SUR VIGNT.
LynnNChicago wrote from Chicago: "Andy, loved your show last night, as always, but agree with mmc on that point, it is too short! It seems like it is over before it even begins!"
THANKS, LYNN, AND THANKS TO EVERYBODY ELSE WHO HAS POSTED SIMILAR COMMENTS. WE'RE GIVING YOU A ONE-HOUR SHOW THIS THURSDAY TO SEE WHAT IT FEELS LIKE FOR YOU AND FOR US. WATCH WHAT HAPPENS!
Lastly, Jean said: "Hey Andy, LOVE your show but could you please STOP ending your Quiz names with "Boo"? It was funny the first time. Now it's just lame. You are more clever than that. Thanks."
HEY BOO! I GET THIS A BUNCH ON TWITTER TOO. PART OF ME AGREES WITH YOU AND PART OF ME AGREES THAT SINCE IT IS LAME THAT MAKES IT FUNNY ON A WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL. PLUS MY UNCLE STANLEY SEEMS TO GET FURIOUS WHEN I LEAVE "BOO" OFF THE NAMES OF THE GAMES, THEREBY PUTTING ME IN A QUANDRY. DO I PLEASEYOU, JEAN, OR MY UNCLE STANLEY?
