Watch what happens


The busiest man in reality television, and our lord and savior, Andy Cohen, has evolved from a behind the scenes player and “that dude who hosted the reunion show” to a full-fledged celeb in his own right, and is poised to become even more well-known now that his quirky talk show Watch What Happens Live is now on a whole five nights a week.

There’s no doubt Andy played a huge role in Bravo’s transformation from obscure basic cable network to one of the nation’s main suppliers of rich people drama and D-listers. While he’ll be putting in much more time on-camera these days that doesn’t mean he’ll be abandoning his role as Executive Producer, telling the Hollywood Reporter that he’ll “remain in charge of all development and talent” (his use of the word talent makes me think of Andy as a Barbizon modeling agent!) and will remain an executive producer of Top Chef and all iterations of Real Housewives.

While he admits that this will remove “twenty something” odd shows from his workload, he is still very involved in a few projects featuring stars Bravo basically created including Jeff Lewis and Bethenny Frankel:Jeff Lewis has an incredible new show coming on, Interior Therapy, we’re in post on that show, I can’t imagine stopping watching rough cuts of that show. I’m very invested in it and I want it to be right. I just got two new episodes of Bethenny Frankel’s new show today, I’m seven in already, and I probably want to finish that season out. So, there’s a lot of work that I feel I will probably continue doing.”

Given the success of the shows Andy has had his hand in, we doubt his bosses at Bravo would want him to stop producing shows, either. His influence can definitely be felt in other shows, especially with his crown jewels — Real Housewives and Top Chef; he admits to THR that there are “at least 25 Housewives rip off shows right now.”

Speaking of the Housewives, in a separate interview with Wetpaint, Andy lets Jill Zarin finally score a point in the ongoing media war that is her existence by giving her credit for finding Bethenny and Ramona Singer on Real Housewives of New York, saying “Jill helped us cast Bethenny and Ramona. She absolutely did.”

Andy, however, makes it clear that he doesn’t believe Jill deserves a commission for that. If you recall, Jill revealed last week that she wanted a finder’s fee for discovering Bethenny. “I don’t get a commission for it,” said Andy. “She’s done very well from the show, so that’s her commission. But she did [help cast them]. She absolutely can take credit for finding Bethenny and Ramona.”

He also stands by his decision to let Jill go, along with her co-stars Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, claiming, as Jill has probably said to her daughter hundreds of times, that its for the show’s own good: “And I just think, whether the ratings are down this season or up, for the long-term health of the New York Housewives, we did the right thing.”

TELL US: ARE YOU ENJOYING THE DAILY EDITIONS OF WATCH WHAT HAPPENS? WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE THE HOUSEWIVES RIP-OFF SHOWS? DO YOU THINK JILL ZARIN DESERVES COMMISSION FOR FINDING BETHENNY AND RAMONA? IS ANDY COHEN YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR?

Part 1 of the Real Housewives of DC reunion aired last night and it did not dissapoint, so let’s get right to the recap!

The reunion starts out with host Andy Cohen asking the ladies what political party they are aligned with. Mary and Lynda are registered Republicans, with Stacie and Michaele being Democrats. Something tells me the Democratic party would rather do without Michaele’s support.

Andy wastes no time in getting down to business as he brings up Michaele’s BS MS claims. Lynda, along with the rest of the world, isn’t buying it and wants to know how Michaele could live & eat the way she does all while having MS for 17 years. Another aspect to this claim that hasn’t been discussed is why and how Michaele never mentioned the MS on the show. How could someone filming a reality show for months about their personal life leave out such a MAJOR factor?

Following a short 9 episode season, the finale of the Real Housewives of DC aired Thursday night on Bravo.

The episode starts out with the continuation of the Salahis getting ready to crash trash a White House party. The gruesome twosome decide to phone in to Stacie to brag about their big night. Tareq brings the lols when he mentions he would have invited Stacie if he had the ability to get her tickets. It gets even worse as Tareq brags in his interview that even former Presidents are turned away from the dinner.

Just watching these two and knowing they had no invites to the event is beyond creepy, and is it just me, or did Tareq look a tad bit nervous in the limo? And I have to question the audacity of these two, crashing trashing a White House party with no invitations, a bright red sari, and camera crews in tow. Upon getting to the first check point, we find out the Salahis’ names are not on the list. They are told to stand around but instead, it looks like the Salahis just kept on walking on in.

Finally! The episode we had all been waiting for all season aired last night as we finally got to see the Salahis crash the White House dinner party, or did we?

Overall, episode 8 of the Real Housewives of DC turned out to be a tad uneventful. Yes, I am aware that the Bravo cameras were not allowed inside the White House, but for some reason I expected more last night. Perhaps, more footage showing just how these two planned to crash trash the party would have sufficed. And oh yeah, as reported earlier today, the Salahis are threatening to sue their cast-mates if they ever refer to them as White House party crashers. So thanks to the genius suggestion of our reader Lisa, the Salahis will now be referred to as the White House party thrashers!

With that out of the way, let’s get right to the recap. Stacie finally decides to contact her birth mother’s son via facebook. I was a bit torn by the Turners’ decision. On one hand, I completely understand Stacie’s strong desire to find her birth father by all means, but on the other hand, I felt it was a bit unfair to involve an innocent party. However, Stacie is desperate so I guess desperate times call for desperate measures.

Real Housewives of DC

This season of the Real Housewives of DC has had a theme, which is the phoniness of the gruesome twosome aka the Salahis. Whether it be the couple’s phony grapes, phony party invites, phony house hunting, and now phony cheerleading. If there’s one thing we  have all come to know and “love” about the Salahis, it is that their phoniness knows no bounds.

This episode of the DC Housewives begins with the now separated Ommanneys browsing through photos for Cat’s book cover. The scene starts out as a cute scene between the couple, until Cat decides to ask Charles about his upcoming schedule, which gave us a glimpse into the couple’s marriage. Based on Charles’ schedule, it’s all but obvious these two are lucky to even spend a day a week together. Cat’s definitely not exaggerating when she states she sometimes feels like a single mom.

The hilarity begins in the next scene with the Salahis. We see Michaele shaking her phony pom poms in preparation for the Washington Redskins cheerleading alumni dance routine. Michaele arrives at the practice in a white SUV, and not the awful 80s white stretch limo, thank goodness. Immediately, we see Michaele looking rather lost and completely offbeat while attempting to do the routines. Judging by Michaele’s lack of rhythm, and her overly eager attitude, it’s all but obvious we’re watching a 44-year-old con artist live out her fantasy of being a professional cheerleader.

The 6th episode of the Real Housewives of DC titled “Securing Homeland” (love all the DC puns by the way) aired last night and the above photo of Mary pretty much sums up my reaction throughout this episode.

The episode starts out with Mary and Cat bonding over the topic of their children. Cat, who is now separated from her husband Charles, expresses that she sometimes feels like a single mother because Charles is away often. Mary explains her struggle with trying to keep her daughter Lolly away from her closet, as she brings up the lock she put on it. In her interview, Mary makes it clear that Lolly is completely innocent of being involved in the theft Tareq accused her of. Mary then proudly proclaims the only thing she has to worry about is Lolly breaking into her closet. Must say if keeping Lolly out of her closest is Mary’s biggest issue with her daughter, then Mary should be a happy mother.

In the next scene, the hilarity in the episode begins as we see Michaele calling up Stacie to discuss hiring her as a real estate agent because she and Tareq are ready to fake pretend to want to buy a home, you know, just as long as the cameras are rolling. Stacie mentions in her interview that things with the Salahis are a bit awkward thanks to the Winery dinner from hell, but Stacie is all about her business, and is willing to overlook the overall shadiness of the gruesome twosome.

Following a one week hiatus for reasons unknown, the Real Housewives of DC returned last night with the airing of the 5th episode of the season, titled “Special Interests.

The episode began where we left off two weeks ago, with Tareq Salahi about to drop a bomb on Mary Amons, you know, because when you invite people over for dinner, confronting them over asinine issues and accusing their daughter of a crime is always the way to make them feel right at home and comfortable.

Tareq begins to tell a story of how a $90,000 car and $30,000 worth of polo gear was stolen from his charity. Tareq then drops a bombshell when he tells Mary cops have informed him that her daughter, Lolly Amons, was an accomplice to the crime based on some facebook postings she had made, admitting to enjoying a joy ride. And I have to ask myself, is this really the time or place to bring this up?

The Real Housewives of DC

After a hiatus last week, a new episode of the Real Housewives of DC is set to air tonight.

Coming up on the 5th episode of the season: A fun vineyard grape stomp turns sour when Michaele and Tareq make upsetting accusations about Mary’s daughter. Meanwhile, Cat tries to get a political party fired up.

RadarOnline is reporting that in tonight’s episode, Tareq will accuse one of Mary’s daughters of being linked to the theft of his personal belongings — polo gear — a claim that Mary denies to the site.

“It was very upsetting and disturbing to have your daughter falsely accused of something,” Mary Amons told Radar. “What was so upsetting, they actually don’t accuse her any crime, but being friends with someone who wronged them. She made a Facebook comment about whatever happened — it was a benign comment, which you will see.”

It seems the fact that the Salahis decided to drag her daughter into something that happened years ago isn’t sitting too well with Mary. “I don’t care if it was true or not, but the fact that these people decided to bring something up that ‘apparently’ occurred years ago and to link to my daughter, I think was unfair. To put this on national television speaks to their character,” said Mary, who shares she has developed a close bond with all of her castmates with the exception of Michaele.

And finally, the Washington Post is reporting today that Mary and her husband Rich Amons have put their home up on the market. The asking price? $2.35 million. Let’s hope all is well financially with the Amons, because putting one’s home on the market is usually a sign of financial hardship when it comes to Bravo housewives.

Also returning tonight is Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The guests will be Teresa Giudice and Stacie Turner. Should be a good episode to watch.
