Remember when romance-defiling reality hag Patti Stanger went on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live and suggested all gay men were undesirably effeminate sluts fraught with disease and incapable of monogamy? How about when she then lied to Joy Behar about her remarks while simultaneously making even worse ones? If so, you'll be happy to know that Stanger finally issued a proper, well thought-out apology to Andy Cohen on tonight's Millionaire Matchmaker reunion show.
Conan O'Brien ended his week-long stint in New York with a bang tonight: He officiated at the same-sex wedding of a staffer and aired the ceremony on his TBS talk show. Scott Cronick works as Conan's costume designer and he was accompanied down the aisle by Bravo's Andy Cohen before tying the knot with his partner, David Gorshein, under a chuppah that had been set up on the stage. Then it was up to Conan to make it official, as you can see in this clip from the show.
Remember when Sarah Jessica Parker went on the Late Show last month and told David Letterman a rambling story about Russia? Replace the Late Show with Watch What Happens Live, David Letterman with Andy Cohen and Russia with the Real Housewives, and you'll have described what happened on Bravo tonight. Here's a highlight reel of Parker's manic, albeit pretty adorable, appearance.
Andy Cohen opened the new season of Watch What Happens Live tonight on Bravo. So what happened? Well, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger answered questions from viewers about dating. And by "answered questions," I mean "made dumb comments that reinforce stereotypes of gay men as effeminate, disease-carrying sluts who are incapable of monogamy." A compilation of Stanger's statements is above.
Bravo honcho Andy Cohen programmed himself onto the network to host the Real Housewives reunions and gave himself his own show. But that wasn't enough. Now he's writing a book about growing up loving pop culture and suppressing his homosexuality as a child. It's called Obviously Andy: The Dandy Andy Story of Growing up Andy Cohen by Andy Cohen by Andrew Cohen. OK, not really, but it does come out next summer.
Remember Kevin Michael Barba, the "openly gay, up and coming New York socialite" who materialized in our inbox last week after his parents' secretary emailed us looking for a publicist referral? Well, he's back. So what's the teenager with "millions of dollars at his disposal" up to this week? He's doing amateur interviews on the streets of New York, of course. And he's as modest and down to earth as ever, as you'll see in the video above. [via Boy Culture]
The Today Show invited Ted Danson to talk about his passion project (saving the oceans) but ended up talking about his time on Cheers instead.
Andy Cohen has finally gone too far. The Bravo exec and culture gadabout was on Morning Joe today discussing, among other things, the Oscars, and went into a mini-tirade about the end of the show, when Staten Island's own PS 22 chorus, a group of adorable tear-inducing school children, came out and sang.
