Surprise Proposal on 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' Reunion Special (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 7th 2011 2:00AM
'The Millionaire Matchmaker'If ever Patti Stanger wanted validation that she was good at what she does, she certainly got it on the second part of 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo) reunion special. Unbeknownst to her or host Andy Cohen, one of her client bachelors had an agenda all his own.

"Baby, I love you with all my heart," David said to Ayla, the woman Stanger set him up with, before dropping to one knee. He then took out a gorgeous diamond ring and asked her to marry him.

In the background, Stanger and Cohen were as speechless as Ayla was, and perhaps nearly as overjoyed when she emphatically said yes. "I've waited for a guy who would be as nice as my father is, and he's everything and more," Ayla said a few minutes later, beaming with her fiance by her side.

Taylor Armstrong, 'Watch What Happens Live''Watch What Happens Live' (Mon., 11PM ET on Bravo) is often a boozy laugh-fest, as it features cast members from Bravo's various reality shows. But there was a very different tone as Taylor Armstrong sat with Andy Cohen to hash out the latest developments on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.'

She talked about how she felt like a complete train wreck while filming this most recent season, and reflected on her explosive breakdown in last night's episode. Armstrong also talked about how she and her daughter have been dealing with the suicide of her abusive ex-husband Russell Armstrong.

'The Millionaire Matchmaker' reunion specialBecause Andy Cohen will host a reunion of anything, he presided over 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo) reunion special. And in it, he decided to take on Patti Stanger's job, only Patti was going to be his client.

When a viewer wrote in asking about former client Marcellus asking Patti on a date, Marcellus was clearly interested. As expected, Patti deflected and started talking about another woman she knew, but Cohen wasn't going to let it die that easily.

"I kind of like the idea of the two of you together," he said, pulling them back to the topic at hand. Patti said she'd try it, though she didn't seem to believe it could work out between the two of them. One thing was absolutely for certain, Marcellus was interested.

Bravo Turning 'Watch What Happens Live' Into Nightly Late-Night Show

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 21st 2011 7:10PM
Just when it seemed like Andy Cohen's Bravo empire couldn't possibly get any bigger, it's grown once again. The New York Times is reporting that Bravo's Cohen-hosted late-night show 'Watch What Happens Live' will soon be expanded into a five-night-per-week offering, airing new episodes from Sunday through Thursday nights.

Cohen, who had been Bravo's Executive Vice President of Programming, is widely credited as the godfather the network's ridiculously popular 'Real Housewives' franchise. Over the past two years he's moved increasingly in front of the camera, hosting the 'Housewives' reunion specials and carving out a boozy, gossipy niche for 'What What Happens,' the rare late night show where guests are served alcohol. The Times reports that in his new role, Cohen will lose his VP title, but remain involved in Bravo programming decisions.

'Work of Art' host China Chow and Beverly Hills Housewife Adrienne Maloof dropped by the clubhouse to hang out with Andy Cohen on Monday night's 'Watch What Happens Live' (Sun. & Mon., 11PM ET on Bravo) and found out they had more in common than just their network.

Andy began reading a question from a viewer asking China if she used to date "Adrienne's BFF Marky Mark Wahlberg," and paused to ask China if the rumor was true. She confirmed it was, much to Adrienne's surprise. Adrienne had just posted a photo on her Facebook page of herself and her husband Dr. Paul Nassif out to dinner with Wahlberg.

Mark Consuelos, 'What What Happens Live'Who knew that Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos were such great impressionists? They had 'Watch What Happens Live' (Sun., 11PM ET on Bravo) host Andy Cohen just cracking up as they showcased their best Joe and Melissa Gorga impersonations.

Revisiting their shared soap opera past, the couple spoofed 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' in 'All My Housewives.' Consuelos was hilarious as Joe, screaming "sono tuo figlio!" at Ripa.

Then, after she cut him off with "Are you done?" he tried to play the supportive husband as Kelly, wearing a rather fetching black wig, explained the murky origins of the long-runnning feud between 'Housewives' Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice.

Was the Gene Simmons-Shannon Tweed Wedding a Ploy for TV Ratings? (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 3rd 2011 3:00PM
Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed got married this weekend after living together for 20 years. The wedding ended a year's worth of public bickering that played out on their reality show 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' and 'Today,' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) where they got into an awkward argument a few days before their show's premiere.

Hoda, Andy Cohen and Khloe Kardashian discussed the up-and-down relationship, and wondered if all the drama, and reconciliation, was an elaborate reality TV setup. Khloe, who knows a thing or two about made-for-TV weddings, said the Simmons-Tweed situation doesn't ring true to her. "That's my only thing, it's just different when you get every single thing on camera," she said.

Seth Rogen, Andy Cohen and Hoda Discuss Kim Delaney's Rambling Speech (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 26th 2011 4:30PM
'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) gathered Seth Rogen, Andy Cohen and Hoda Kotb to discuss the possible causes of 'Army Wives' star Kim Delaney's rambling Liberty Medal Award Ceremony speech. The actress was supposed to be introducing former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, but got yanked off the stage after slurring her words and appearing to be drunk.

The group kicked around a few different theories about her discombobulation. The first was a teleprompter malfunction, something that could disrupt even the most seasoned public speakers. The most likely cause, clearly, is booze, as Delaney has struggled with drug and alcohol abuse in the past. A third possibility was that she may have had some kind of stroke, like CBS reporter Serene Branson suffered on-air in February, but we don't think that's too likely.

Rogen combined two schools of thought to put a nice bow on the segment. "Every time I can't read a teleprompter I get really drunk," he joked.

Patti Stanger Offends Jewish and Gay Viewers on 'Watch What Happens Live' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 26th 2011 12:10PM
'Millionaire Matchmaker' host Patti Stanger has built a career on giving people dating guidance, but Sunday night on 'Watch What Happens Live,' her advice veered into offensive territory. Taking calls from viewers, Stanger repeatedly packaged gay and Jewish stereotypes as insight in a segment that offended viewers and made host Andy Cohen visibly uncomfortable.

Things started to get uncomfortable when a gay man called in asking a question about maintaining an open long-term relationship. Stanger said, "In the gay world, it will always be open," and continued, "I've tried to curb you people." She then referenced a gay sex site.

Andy Cohen recoiled in shock. "I'm down for the monogamy," he said, pushing back on her comments. She immediately burst out laughing. "When was the last time you had a boyfriend?" she asked, incredulously.

Jeff Lewis Catches Trace in a Lie on the 'Flipping Out' Reunion (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 14th 2011 3:32AM
'Flipping Out'Even though they were fired during the regular season run of 'Flipping Out' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo). Sarah and Trace were brought back for the reunion. But if Trace thought he was going to be able to air any grievances he has toward Jeff Lewis, he was mistaken.

Instead, Jeff immediately called him out on a lie and then went to town. Andy Cohen asked if Trace was in touch with any of his former clients from when he worked for Jeff. Doing so would put him in breach of contract.

When Trace said no, Jeff called him on the lie immediately, citing a client by name he'd been in contact with multiple times. With the camera on Trace's face, we could see the wheels spinning as he tried to come up with a way to talk his way out of the lie, but it ultimately didn't work.

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Looking for New Recruits

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 9th 2011 12:30PM
'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' is apparently looking to shake up its gang of drama-addicted ladies. According to Millburn-Short Hills Patch, Vinnie Potestivo Entertainment has issued an open casting call to re-stock Andy Cohen's harem of 'Housewives' for Season 4.

It's not clear how many new recruits they're looking for, or if this means that any of the beloved and/or hated 'Housewives' are moving on.

In addition to table-throwing, yelling and showing up to parties uninvited, cast-shakeups have been a constant of the 'RHONJ' franchise. Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice are the only remaining original 'Housewives.' Teresa's sister-in law Melissa Gorga joined the cast for Season 3 along with her cousin Kathy Wakile. Dina Manzo left in the middle of Season 2 and Danielle Staub was not asked back for Season 3.

Andy Cohen Scores Book Deal

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 8th 2011 4:15PM
We have absolutely no idea where Andy Cohen will find the time to write a memoir, but the Bravo Executive Vice-President and 'Watch What Happens Live' host has signed a book deal. Henry Holt and Company have commissioned one of TV's best multi-taskers to write a memoir about his life experience with pop culture. Cohen announced the deal on his Bravo blog.

The memoir will track Cohen's lifelong obsession with pop culture and how that has influenced his career. He'll share funny stories he's been saving about his days growing up in St. Louis, including his journey towards coming to terms with his sexuality, his time as a reporter for CBS News, and, we can only hope, some behind-the-scenes goodness about the process of creating the 'The Real Housewives' franchise for Bravo.

"I love to write and I'm thrilled that I get to share stories of my improbable intersections with pop culture that have enriched my life," Cohen said in a statement. He also said that he began writing the book this week, and that it's due out next summer. Cohen is soliciting suggestions from fans to help him decide on the memoir's title.

Alex Battles Jill and LuAnn on 'Real Housewives of NYC' Reunion (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 2nd 2011 10:45AM
'The Real Housewives of New York City, Reunion Part 2'The season may be over but the hurt feelings linger on. That's why we have so much fun with these reunion shows for the likes of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Mon., 10PM ET on Bravo). They're so successful, they tend to get two reunion installments per 'Housewives' iteration.

What makes it work is that by the time we reach the reunion shows, the women have also watched the episodes aired on television. So they've now seen how horrible they are to one another, and they know what everyone said about them behind their backs, and worse.

Poor Andy Cohen has to sit in the middle, hoping no one jumps up like a 'Jerry Springer' episode to start a fight. Alex turned red when arguing with LuAnn and Jill about who said what behind whose back.

Andy Cohen, Allison Janney, and John Benjamin Hickey on 'Watch What Happens Live'Andy Cohen snuck a "Christmas in July" theme in just under the wire Sunday on 'Watch What Happens Live' (Thursdays and Sundays, 11PM on Bravo), decorating the set with a Christmas tree, garlands and a Santa hat on a Snoopy statue. In keeping with the theme, Cohen played a game he called "Ghosts of Christmas Past" with guests Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey, with an assist from Julie Chen.

Chen asked the guests questions, and they had to hold up a paddle showing either "true" or "false." It got personal when Chen asked if Hickey had ever dated Cohen. Hickey stumbled over his answer. "Is there an in between?" he asked, and then held up "false." Chen confirmed it was actually true.
