Andy Cohen is releasing another memoir and it’s due to hit shelves next month. To celebrate the release of “The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year”, the Watch What Happens Live host sat down with Glamour Magazine to share his thoughts on how to have a happy life and we have a few excerpts from the article, including giving props to his friendships withNeNe Leakes and Bethenny Frankel.
DO know: You’re your own worst critic: “When Christina Hendricks and Dylan McDermott were on my show [in October 2013], I felt like everything I said didn’t come out right or landed with a thud. When I have off shows, I have to remind myself that my experience of what just happened was only my experience. It’s never as intense for everyone else as it is for you.”
Victoria’s rep Steve Honig reached out to share that she did NOT get paid for her guest appearance on the show. “Victoria did not get paid for her appearance on RHONJ, so she didn’t do anything for money. ” He continued, “And as far as her being a liar, well, we have a polygraph test that says otherwise.”
Andy commented and asked Teresa Aprea if she felt bad about her scene with the “clink clink” karma diss, saying she took a lot of heat over it on Twitter for “kicking”Teresa Giudice when she’s down. Teresa A says she did feel bad and that the two of them are okay at the moment. “I did apologize. It came from a place of anger. It was mean, it was a little harsh. So, I did apologize and I did address the situation.” Teresa G sees the clip for the first time at the reunion and Teresa Aprea admits that Tre was pissed.
We start off taking a stroll down memory lane with clips of Slade from when he started in season one of the show. And then Andy shared a hilarious montage of clips of Tamra Barney (now Judge) slamming Gretchen.
Gretchen says “Tamra Barney has lost all credibility with everyone, including the viewers. She’s the biggest lying, manipulating, conniving, narcissistic sociopath. And I say she’s a sociopath because sociopaths don’t even realize that they do anything wrong. All they do is blame everyone else for their mistakes and that’s all she continues to do and the viewers saw it last season.”
Andy starts right off with Teresa’s claims in court that the show is fake. “In court papers you claim that The Real Housewives of New Jersey is scripted. ‘It is little more than a work of fiction engineered by Bravo TV through scripted lines and clever editing.’ What did you mean by that?” Teresa responds, “Meaning that there are editors on the show and our producers”, Andy cuts her off “were you told to flip the table?” Teresa says “no flipping the table I did.” Andy asks if she was told to fight with Melissa or Joe Gorga. “My family coming on the show, you know Andy, I didn’t know they were coming on the show.” Andy says “you didn’t want them on the show,” Teresa jumps in “not that I didn’t want them on the show, they never told me they were coming on the show.” Andy tries to end it with “we’ve had this discussion many times, ya ya ya.” Teresa says “When my family came on, I didn’t like the way I was portrayed. I was the villain, I was this mean person. People would come up to me and they’re like ‘oh my God you’re so nice’ and I’m like ‘what do you mean?’ and they’re like ‘you come off so mean on the show.”
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice spoke out for the first time since their prison sentences were handed down on Thursday. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars sat down with Andy Cohen for a special edition of Watch What Happens Live. And let me summarize it for you: Teresa thinks she’s a victim in this, y’all! A VICTIM. Nope, she hasn’t learned a single lesson.
Andy opens the show trying to keep the twinkle out of his eye recapping the Giudices’ federal prison sentences: Joe will sit for 41 months and Teresa for 15 months. He says that he wishes he were seeing them under happier circumstances and the mood is grim, as expected. Andy starts off asking how they’re doing. Teresa says she feels like she’s numb and things feel surreal. “All I keep thinking about is my daughters.”
