Watch What Happens Live Recap: Kinky Boots, Drag Queens, And WIG!

Watch What Happens Live - Season 9

As you know, I'll be sharing some Watch What Happens Live posts sporadically throughout the week, and for Monday's show, I was in full recap mode.  For last night's episode, I tried to go less recap/more highlight reel to see which style our wonderful readers prefer.  Please sound off with your opinions in the comments section!

Andy Cohen's guests last night were former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony award winner and writer Harvey Fierstein.  The leading lady of Harvey's Broadway hit Kinky Boots is the bartender.  Harvey thinks Kim's hair is real (um, does he need glasses?), clarifying, if she bought it, it's really hers.  Fair enough.  If I close my eyes and just listen to Harvey's voice, I can easily picture Big Ang from Mob Wives!

The drinking game alert is "boots" (said thirty times throughout the show!), and we learn that Kim keeps all her old pregnancy tests.  Ew.


Andy compliments Kim's reunion dress and compares it with pictures of RHONJ's Melissa Gorga and RHOM's Lisa Hochstein.  While Kim thinks they both look good, there is a difference…she's wearing Stella McCartney, and the other women are rocking knock-off designs.  For shame!

The poll question is announced: Should Kim and NeNe Leakes be besties again?  Kim promises her reunion hair was 100% her real hair despite NeNe's doubts which we will get to see on the upcoming final RHOA reunion installment.

Andy opens the vault on Harvey and a funny clip of him on Murder She Wrote is shown…he reveals that he pointed out all the "glory holes" on the Universal Studio lot to Angela Lansbury who laughed at them and then promptly had them filled.  It takes me a minute, but I realize what he's referring to with the term "glory hole."  #shelteredyouth

Harvey dishes on former co-stars and celebrities he discovered in a segment called Spill the Celebri-Tea, and many fan questions are asked as to why Kim always wears a wig.  She explains, "I mean, I just love wigs.  It's easy.  It's quick.  My hairstylist can take it home and curl it for me."

Harvey shares that he worked with Kelsey Grammer on a Broadway show and claims Camille Grammer was always lovely to him.  However, he realized there was trouble in paradise because another woman was always hanging out in Kelsey's dressing room.  That's never a good sign!  Kim inserts that she'd just met the RHOBH star before Camille's WWHL appearance and that she was very nice.

As far as her lawsuit with Kandi Burruss, Kim tells Andy her attorney just filed the paperwork on Monday asking the judge to dismiss the case.

Kim remains tight-lipped regarding how painful her relationship is with her mom, but she promises viewers we'll see it play out on the new season of her show.  Kim also reveals that Sweetie will not be on Don't Be Tardy because she is too busy with school.  A likely story!

It's game time: Kim Z or Kim-He!  After seeing a portion of a picture, Kim and Harvey must determine whether it's a photo of Kim Zolciak or a drag queen  Kim, thankfully, gets all of them correct.  The fake hair is very confusing to Harvey.

Andy's mazel goes to a father who lost a son in Iraq and a son to depression and was a spectator at the Boston Marathon.  He was photographed pinching closed the artery of an injured bombing victim while helping get the injured man to safety.  His jackhole is internet teens doing condom snorting.  I could have gone my entire life without seeing that You Tube video!

The poll results are in, and 58% of those who participated think that Kim and NeNe should be besties again.  What do you think?
