Aside from Jon, I have a slight (OK, major…HUGE) crush on Bravo executive turned TV personality Andy Cohen! Since 2009 he caught my attention on Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live, an interactive, late-night talk show that hosts pop-culture celebrities and bravolebrities. Andy encourages viewers to “guzzle” their favorite cocktails while he interviews guests.
Since fans, including myself, could not get enough of A.C. and his side kick turtle, Tramona, Bravo has expanded the show!! You can now get the 411 LIVE with Andy FIVE nights a week, Sundays through Thursdays at 11 p.m on Bravo.
Each half-hour installment features celebrities, such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Anderson Cooper, Kelly Ripa and Jerry Seinfeld, whacky games, and booze! Lots and lots of booze! Every “WWHL” episode features a word of the night that when said, viewers are urged to take a sip of their favorite drink. Andy also gives his daily “mazel” and “jackhole” announcements, which last night’s went to Britney Spears’ son and Elton John’s husband, respectively. All that is set in what Andy calls his clubhouse – a sleek, but small, den-like space in Manhattan.
The games, cocktails and interactive environment are paying off big for Andy, whose show has now surpassed Conan O’Brien and “Chelsea Lately” with viewers in 2011. Watch out Letterman and Leno, there’s a new late-night king in town!
So pour yourself a glass of Skinnygirl, get ready to laugh (or fall in love) with the incredibly handsome and hilarious Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens: Live now airing five nights a week. Most importantly, be sure to put on your PJ’s this Thursday, January 19, for Bravo’s 1st ever pajama party with Oscar winners Ralph Fiennes and Holly Hunter!
Even more exciting, Andy Cohen is set to release his first book, Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture, in May 2012. I can hardly wait!!
