Bravo’s national treasure Andy Cohen has made quite a few headlines in the last couple of months. While co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live with his bestie, Anderson Cooper, Andy was living his best drunken life.
Andy proceeded to spout off about former New York City mayor Bill De Blasio. Then, he dissed host Ryan Seacrest on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. On Instagram, Andy copped to the fact that he “was a hair over-served.”
In October of 2021, Andy revealed on his SiriusXM radio show that he was selected for a special honor. “You know I’m getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was supposed to happen in May or April of 2020.” Andy added, “February 4th is my re-schedule date.”
Andy was allotted only 30 seats, and he planned to invite some Housewives. “I think there will probably be a group of Housewives there, I would think. So that’s six right there. Or five…,” Andy commented.
Page Six reported that when Andy received his star, his good friend, singer John Mayer, was there. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Garcelle Beauvais and Lisa Rinna were also present to celebrate with Andy. I was shocked that Kyle Richards wasn’t there.
John is a popular guest on Andy’s show, Watch What Happens Live. And John has another connection to the Bravo-verse. According to Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay, around 2008, she was part of a throuple with John and Stacie Hall.
When John spoke, he couldn’t resist ribbing Andy and mentioning some well-known Real Housewives of Salt Lake City stars. “He’s … my friend, my dear friend. And there are times in life when you just need a friend you can count on,” John stated.
“For example, when Homeland Security shows up to the Beauty Lab and Laser parking lot and your friend’s life is suddenly in shambles, will you be a Heather Gay or a Lisa Barlow?” John commented. Andy roared with laughter, and the musician added that Andy is “forever a Heather Gay.” I wonder how Lisa feels about being name-dropped by John for being a bad friend. John is lucky that Lisa didn’t blast him like she did her former bestie, Meredith Marks.
As you may recall, as the RHOSLC cast was in a Sprinter van at Beauty Lab and Laser preparing to leave for Vail, Jen Shah answered a mysterious phone call. She told Heather that her husband, Sharrieff Shah was in the hospital. Shortly after she left, the parking lot was filled with law enforcement officers looking for Jen.
Jen’s co-stars were shocked when they learned online that she was arrested for conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Jen’s assistant, Stuart Smith, was arrested on the same charges. Lisa immediately dialed up all six of her attorneys.
After her arrest, when Jen reached out to Lisa, she didn’t return her calls right away. But Heather dropped everything to support her friend. “My girl Heather Gay was there for me from jump. She was like, ‘Girl, where you at? I’m coming. What do you need?” Jen stated.

As for Lisa? “I was very, very close with Lisa [Barlow] and that’s honestly who I expected to pick up the phone on the first ring … and you know, it took a minute.”
Jen plead not guilty to all the charges, as did Stuart. However, he later changed his plea to guilty. According to Page Six, Stuart will be sentenced on March 3, 2022. Jen’s trial is slated to begin on March 7, 2022.
