Andy Cohen usually avoids picking sides at all costs. He stirs the pot here and there when it comes to the Bravolebrities, but getting emotionally invested is not a common occurrence. He admitted that there is one exception. On last night’s Watch What Happens Live, Andy told Jenni Pulos that he “hates” this fight with her and Jeff Lewis.
Andy disliking drama? Are pigs flying? Apparently so. Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Emily Simpson was also in the Bravo clubhouse- primarily to discuss Shannon Beador, as expected.
Before getting into the drama, Andy shared a clip of exes Kelly Dodd and Michael Dodd’s electric chemistry. He asked the obvious question: Do you think Kelly and Michael will get back together? Emily admitted, “I don’t know. I would have said no, but when I watched that scene, I was like ‘there’s a little sexual tension there.'” She added, “They were cute.” They really were!
Other than talking about Shannon, Emily’s major storyline this year was decided what to do with her embryos in storage. Andy asked, “Did you figure out what you’re going to do with the embryos?” Emily shared, “The only thing I can do right now is to keep paying the storage fee. I cannot destroy them. I just emotionally cannot do that.”
Andy got to the real drama. Jeff claimed that he ended the friendship with Jenni after she complained to Bravo about him being an “abusive” boss. Jenni maintained, “I never filed a claim. I really worked for him. We were really friends. I’m heartbroken about how it’s all transpired. I wish him the best and I always have.”
Why didn’t someone from Bravo step in to clear this up? Watch What Happens Live is a show on the Bravo network. This seems like an easy mystery to solve.
Andy confessed, “First of all, I’m so uncomfortable with this entire fight, as you know. The three of us, I feel like we all came up together on Bravo.” He admitted, “I never enjoy a fight, but this one I hate. Really, it’s very upsetting to me.” I feel the same way, Andy. Well, minus the part about having a longrunning Bravo show. Maybe we can change that? I would love to relate.
Andy also said, “I watched the finale. It’s like watching my parents splitting up.”
A viewer asked Emily why she compared her mom to Shannon. Emily insisted, “I just noticed similarities and it wasn’t meant to be anything malicious. My mom went through a bad divorce and she had issues. She didn’t get over it. I feel like Shannon went through a bad divorce and I felt like they were both having a hard time with it.”
Something tells me that Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson, and Shannon are going to eat Emily alive over these mental illness insinuations during the reunion episodes. Watch out, Emily. Nevertheless, Emily insisted, “It wasn’t a malicious comparison by any mean.”
Jenni is actually a close friend of Shannon’s, making the Shannon-centered episode that much more awkward. Andy asked, “What did you think of those Jamaica episodes?” For some reason Jenni was not expecting that question or any question about Shannon. Clearly. she answered, “They were intense, but I’m glad that they were back together I guess.”
Well, yeah. Of course Tamra, Shannon, and Vicki are going to ban together against fresh blood in the cast. That’s pretty much a given.
