On last night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, ringmaster Andy Cohen had his guests Jon Hamm and Amy Sedaris act out an iconic Don Draper/Peggy Olson confrontation from Season 4 of Mad Men. The twist was that Sedaris was made to perform the scene as her former drug addict/prostitute Strangers with Candy character, Jerri Blank. The result was all...mildewy. Unfortunately, though, the scene study did not end with Jerri Blank ugly-crying, as Peggy did on the original episode.
On last night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, actress Jennifer Tilly repeatedly propositioned Andy Cohen, imitated her one-time co-star Gina Gershon's turn in House of Versace, showed off her poker face (it involves non-quivering bosoms), and said everything in her squeaky Godzilla voice, with which she seems to consume all of the oxygen in the room in one gulp and burp it out simultaneously. In other words, Jennifer Tilly was Jennifer Tilly.
A non-story has emerged as a result of Andy Cohen referring to a members of the boy band One Direction as "twinks," a term used primarily by gay men to describe other boyish, usually young, usually gay men. The band and the Bravo host/exec who's addicted to telling everyone how talkative he is were both on Today yesterday and he tweeted this regarding his initial encounter:
Andy Cohen is the kind of powerful television executive who gives himself a weekly talk show and then promotes that talk show to five days a week. Andy Cohen is also the kind of powerful television executive who brings his famous friends on his talk show. Tonight those friends were Jerry Seinfeld and Matthew Broderick. Here, Jerry reminisces about his first Tonight Show appearance, early Seinfeld press photos and other tidbits about the heyday of the show.
Taking a break from his usual slate of "Bravo-lebrities," Andy Cohen welcomed MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on tonight's Watch What Happens Live. During the show, Maddow answered a question about her former colleague Keith Olbermann's very public split with Current TV. Here's her answer.
Andy Cohen's three ring circus of a talk show is usually only fun because it's live television and anything can happen. But, tonight his guests were the lovely Rashida Jones, from NBC's Parks and Recreation, and the dashing John Slattery, of AMC's Mad Men and it turned into a pretty fun half hour. Here's a highlight.
Saturday Night Live returned from a long break last night with an episode that was pretty lacking but still featured two decent sketches. The first was "Bein' Quirky with Zooey Deschanel," the second installment of this sketch, which also featured host Sofia Vergara's interesting take on a Fran Drescher impression.
Bravo chief Andy Cohen's three ring circus of a talk show Watch What Happens Live can get pretty crazy but tonight it went to new heights. For some terrible reason, Cohen decided to fill the room with fifty odd "Bravo-lebrities" and things unraveled fairly quickly into a mess of dumb games and scattered shouting. The show had it all - technical glitches, cringe-worthy singing from two (two!) Real Housewives, those terrible focus group for their baby name people, and next gen Bravo star Julia Allison. Here are all the craziest moments from Andy Cohen's All Star Bash.
Joan Rivers has always pushed boundaries and since Andy Cohen's circus-like talk show barely has any to being with, you just knew things were gonna get wild when she stopped by tonight. In this segment, she discusses making jokes about Whitney Houston, Kate Moss and Auschwitz, and also mentions a one night stand with Robert Mitchum. It's pretty crazy. Hilarious, but crazy.
Last night was the final installment of the continuously protracted Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special. But this time it wasn't really about all the ladies. No, it was about our star. It was about Kim Richards.
On tonight's Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen hosted Cougar Town Executive Producer David Arquette, who is quite the character. Within a half hour of slightly unhinged chuckling, Arquette explained a run-in that he had with some folks from the Westboro Baptist Church while they were picketing the Super Bowl. They made sure to damn him to Hell but considering their mixed up ideology, that might not be such a bad thing.
Stephen Colbert just isn't in love with the idea of Mitt Romney becoming President of the United States, which his victories in Iowa and New Hampshire obviously foreshadow. But, that doesn't mean Colbert can't get used to the idea. When Stephen and Andy hash it all out over cosmos, Stephen learns that, sooner or later, everyone has to settle.
Andy Cohen began Monday's Watch What Happens Live by exclaiming, "Wow, we got a dead house tonight!" Cohen was referring to his lazy audience, but when considering the fact he was was also sitting next to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong—whose abusive husband, Russell, committed suicide in August—it's hard not to cringe a bit at his unfortunate choice of words. You'll find that, plus Taylor's candid talk about Russell's domestic abuse and ultimate suicide, in the above video.
