Watch What Happens Live executive producer and host Andy Cohen is, for all intents and purposes, the face of Bravo. Without him, the landscape of reality television might look very different today. And we would not know that women can be called “Housewives” without actually being married!
Andy, of course, is also the executive producer of the Real Housewives shows, which have been the standard after which many other reality shows have been modeled. Haven’t you always wondered if Andy has a favorite among all the Bravo shows? Would it be the Real Housewives of Orange County, which started the Housewives franchise? Or the Real Housewives of New York, which takes place in his beloved adopted home town? Maybe another Bravo show which he does not produce himself?
According to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Andy was recently asked by an audience member at the For Your Consideration Emmys event what his all-time favorite Bravo show is. Surprisingly, Andy actually answered the question. And he revealed, “Gosh, that’s so hard. You know, maybe the Real Housewives of New York City.”
Of course, the Real Housewives of New York might logically be his favorite. It is filmed in New York City, a town which all WWHL viewers know Andy has great affection for. And he runs into the ladies on occasion in the city and in the Hamptons. Plus, he and Bethenny Frankel are known to be good friends.
Andy even recently touted how likeable Ramona Singer has become over the years–yes, really! And let’s face it–RHONY is arguably the best of the current Housewife shows. The cast is made up of real friends, the ladies are naturally funny and the storylines actually come to resolutions.

So, what might the other non-favored status Housewives think about Andy’s playing favorites? Let’s hope that RHOC’s Vicki Gunvalson has not heard about this as she has considered herself the reason that the Housewives shows exist. At least until this year, when Vicki’s orange was taken away and she was demoted–probably left with a bitter tasting, moldy tangerine. And a pay cut!
How would other Housewife OG’s like Kyle Richards, Teresa Giudice and NeNe Leakes feel about Andy’s favoritism? Each of them seems to think they are pretty special to Andy. Hopefully they have not heard about his choice. Especially NeNe!

Of course, most Housewives probably do not care much one way or the other what Andy’s favorite Housewife show is. Just as long as their contracts are renewed. And the paychecks keep coming!
