Andy Cohen is often seen as the King of Bravo who can do no wrong. However, there have been plenty of times when he went in hard on a Real Housewives star during the reunion. To err is human to forgive is divine, but Andy often doesn’t hold back when it comes to putting a certain reality star in their place and, at times, seems to thrive on the drama.

During the Season 5 reunion of the Real Housewives of Potomac, Andy was blasted for his lack of journalistic integrity when he interviewed Monique Samuels regarding her fight with Candiace Dillard Bassett. During his chat, Andy came across as unfair and clearly was siding with the beauty queen. Monique was quickly painted as the bad guy, even though it takes two to tango. Bravo viewers found it hard to distinguish between his personal opinion and staying neutral while conducting the interview.

Andy was visibly upset with Monique, noting she wasn’t emotional enough. She said the mother was “matter of fact and dry about the whole thing.” Monique alleged that Andy held her to a different standard than the rest of the women. “I believe that his responsibility should be to get down to the bottom of whatever questions may have been unanswered during the season,” she said. But Andy quickly dropped the ball, enraging Real Housewives fans.

Everyone and their mama was coming for Erika Jayne, but Andy also joined in on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 reunion. Andy didn’t waste any time as he asked the hard questions regarding the embezzlement scandal and financial claims that Erika had no money to her name. He told Erika he was “going to put you on a skewer—and I’m going to fire up the barbecue.”

Andy took it upon himself to ask some hard questions, including, “Why didn’t you leave Tom sooner?'” Erika replied, “Where was I going?” The entire season outraged fans who learned that Tom Girardi was accused of embezzling millions of dollars that were meant for plane crash victims of Lion Air. 

Andy kept his promise as he did not back down. “Who believes that Erika did not know anything about what Tom was doing?,” he asked the ladies of the 90210. The question enraged the Pretty Mess singer. “Can someone please back me the fu*k up on what I am saying?,” she asked. Andy went for the jugular, pointing out to Erika, “​​You were manipulating the narrative by saying the cognitive decline started three years ago. “It lands differently when there are air crash victims.”

During the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Andy tried to get to the bottom of who called who a loser at BravoCon 2022. Tamra Judge claimed Heather Dubrow had denigrated the entire cast, while Fancy Pants noted Tamra had jokingly said it on her podcast. Honestly, they are both losers for even fighting over the semantics of it all.

While Tamra was trying to defend herself from the line of questioning, Andy interjected. “By the way, you had said terrible things about everyone that was still on the show when you weren’t on the show,” he said. Tamra yelled back, “But we’re not talking about that so fu*k off.” Andy defended himself, noting, “I’m just pointing out that you were calling them losers.”

Andy is known for losing his temper with unruly housewives. The Real Housewives of Miami Season 5 reunion was no exception, as he was caught yelling at Larsa Pippen. The magical mogul didn’t mince his words after Larsa tried verbally attacking Nicole Martin‘s son, who was born out of wedlock.

On his SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live show, Andy gave more insight into the argument. “I usually don’t editorialize, and I did with The Housewives of Miami,” he said. “Basically, Larsa was kind of—it seemed to me—weaponizing to Nicole that her child was born out of wedlock.”

Andy went on to explain, “Like she was saying…I could be calling out that your son was born out of wedlock. Now, when you say, I could be using something as a weapon, you’re basically doing it.” Andy revealed Larsa’s words hit home since he was a single father of two. Hopefully, the host learns from his verbal attacks, but we kind of doubt he will.
