Andy Cohen Hedges on His 'No New Housewives' Edict: 'Never Say Never'

Because Andy Cohen is not only a "Bravo-lebrity" -- he's host of the loosey-goosey talk show 'Watch What Happens Live' -- but he's also the network's executive vice president of original programming, it's hard to pin him down on certain issues.

For instance, when asked about his assertion last month that 'The Real Housewives' series won't be expanding into new cities, he backtracks a little bit. "Um, I mean, you know, look, I mean, look, never say never, but I think we're really good right now," he told me earlier this week. He also won't mention the fate of 'The Real Housewives of DC:' "You know what, we have not made any announcements and we haven't really gotten into it." (Update: 'The Real Housewives of DC' was officially canceled on April 7.)

One thing is certain, though: if the show is pushing into Toronto, as was reported last week, it won't be produced by Bravo: "You know what, I don't know if that's a license deal. I don't know what that is. But that was the first I had heard of it too."

On Thursday, April 7 at 11PM ET, Cohen celebrated the 100th episode of 'WWHL,' and he's enjoying every minute of his side gig. "I love it that right now it's kind of somewhere between 'Wayne's World' and a Fellini movie," Cohen said.

'The Real Housewives of DC': Who Loses an Invitation to the White House? (VIDEO)

Michaele Salahi, 'The Real Housewives of DC'Michaele Salahi of 'The Real Housewives of DC' (Thu., 9PM on BRAVO) may have lost her invitation to a state dinner at the White House, but that appears to be the least of her problems. Her mind is clearly in a million different places at once, but hardly ever where she actually is.

When her hairdresser asked to see the invitation, Michaele went out to look for it, and was distracted by virtually everything she saw. "Definitely gonna need these," she said about some bracelets she found while looking through her coat. Then, when her chauffeur opened the door, she blurted, "There's the umbrella," before getting back on task. Maybe she just verbalizes her thoughts, you say?

How about when the producers got involved, asking if she was still looking for it. "Well, I don't know," Michaele responded. "Who has it?"

'The Real Housewives of D.C.' Premiere: Michaele Salahi Steals the Show

by Kevin Downey, posted Aug 5th 2010 1:00PM
Real Housewives of DCFor months, Americans have seemingly agreed on only one thing: White House party crasher Michaele Salahi -- she with the shock of blond hair and sparkling red sari, who floated past flashing cameras with her befuddled-looking husband Tareq -- is a cringe-inducing attention grabber. Yuck.

The Salahis, of course, sneaked into the White House for President Obama's first state dinner in November. White House social secretary Desiree Rogers eventually resigned over the flap that ensued, and Americans have been seething at the mere mention of Michaele ever since. And the antipathy kicked up a notch when word began trickling out that the party crashing was a reality show stunt, or the Salahis attempt to land such a show.

Curiously, though, it's anything but contempt viewers will likely feel toward Michaele in 'The Real Housewives of D.C.,' the fifth installment in Bravo's 'Housewives' franchise. 'D.C.' premieres Thu., Aug. 5.

Michaele is one of five women featured on 'D.C.' and in the premiere episode, she steals the show -- in a good way.

White House Party-Crashing Salahis 'Trespass' on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Michaele and Tareq Salahi Crash 'Late Show'Remember the Salahis? Michaele and Tareq faked their way past Secret Service to crash President Obama's first State Dinner at the White House last year.

They're hitting New York City with their shtick, as evidenced when they crashed the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). In the middle of David Letterman's monologue, the couple traipsed onto the stage, surrounded Letterman and posed for the paparazzi that appeared. Then without saying a word, they walked off.

"For all practical purposes, they're trespassing," mused Letterman, "but the crowd goes wild."

We'll be seeing more of their staged celebrity: Michaele has been cast as one of Bravo's 'Real Housewives of D.C.,' and the pair will visit the 'Today' show on May 27. How delightful. Ugh.

Should the White House Gatecrashers Be Disqualified from 'Real Housewives'?

by Chris Jordan, posted Nov 27th 2009 8:32PM

Here's a headline that doesn't surprise us: The Virginia couple who crashed a high-profile White House dinner on Tuesday has a reality TV connection.

Michaele and Tareq Salahi, who will probably enter the gatecrasher hall of fame for their Pennsylvania Avenue adventure, are candidates to appear on Bravo's upcoming 'The Real Housewives of D.C.,' according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. Furthermore, camera crews for Half Yard Productions, which produces 'Housewives' for Bravo, filmed the couple preparing for the dinner but didn't follow them into the White House.
