Andy Cohen is always so open and honest, I think that is why Watch What Happens Live! works so well. But the Real Housewives head honcho has not always been so forthcoming with casting scoop, I assume to keep things secret to boost ratings.
So it was a total surprise when it was announced long before the season airs that former fan favorite, Bethenny Frankel, would be returning for season 7 of the Real Housewives of New York. So just how long had Bethenny’s return been in the works?
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.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!

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 Cohen has done it again. After weeks of speculation ab0ut the reasoning behind the demotion of Porsha Williams from full-time housewife on the Real Housewives of Atlanta to “Friend of the Housewives,” the Housewives-head-honch0 gives us a complete definitive answer.
And, despite what you may have th0ught, it actually has nothing to do with her beat-down of costar Kenya Moore at last season’s reunion show.
Days after Teresa Giudice was sentenced to federal prison, Real Housewives Of New Jersey went ahead with the reunion filming. Among the many rumors circulating is that Teresa was hours late, annoyed her co-stars, and repeatedly stopped filming to cry. Andy Cohen denied all that – and he’s also giving more details about what went on!
“The reunion show was really intense,” the WWHL host admitted, but reminded us that all Real Housewives reunions are! “It was a typical reunion show, which means it was really dramatic, emotional, intense,” Andyclarified to Extra. “Obviously there was an undercurrent of something incredibly serious that’d just happened with Teresa, but we all got through it.”
“The whole show is a phony!” George laments. “It is not comprised of real housewives. It should be called Divorced Housewives, Single Housewives or Non-Resident Housewives.”
George claims that it was Aviva who brought in all the ratings last season! Wait, I thought that was Ramonja? “They should have never let Aviva go,” George complains. “The ratings were at 2 million, then down to 1.3 million. And the only reason the ratings went up recently is because Aviva threw her leg.”
