ANDY COHEN IS TAKING A TIMELY BREAK

Remember where you read this, as it could happen any second. Look for Andy Cohen to take a pause from his Bravo duties in the wake of recent accusations of cocaine use and a lawsuit by former RHONY cast member, Leah McSweeney. Our Bravo source reveals that behind the scenes executives are strategizing to give Andy a timeout until the scandal leaves the headlines. Nothing has been finalized yet, but the plan is for Andy to claim he has a personal issue to attend to and have guest stars take over Watch What Happens Live until the dust settles on his recent scandals.

She’s neither married or even engaged, but Lourdes Leon is being wooed to join The Real Housewives of New York. Despite a recent cast overhaul, the once popular show isn’t pulling in the ratings it once did. The powers that be, including Bravo’s own Andy Cohen, feel what’s lacking is some STAR POWER. While Lourdes isn’t actually A-list, her mom is MADONNA! The hope is that Madonna will make appearances if Lourdes is cast. A authoritative source reveals that former RHONY star, Luann de Lesseps, is coaching Lourdes for her upcoming screen test…

KATHARINE McPHEE A BEVERLY HILLS HOUSEWIFE? NO WAY!

 

Katherine McPhee recently turned down a 7 figure deal to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  Although the Bravo show’s newest season began airing October 25 ( all of the episodes are filmed in advance) producer Andy Cohen is looking ahead to season 14 and wants to spice things up with some bigger name Housewives. Our Bravo source tells us that Katherine was offered six figures per episode to join the show ( and with over 10 episodes a season that’s over a million dollars for a few months worth of work!)  Katherine was mulling over the idea, but her husband , music producer David Foster, immediately nixed it.  He saw his marriage to then Housewife Yolanda Hadid disintegrate and he blames her involvement on the reality show as one of the reasons.  Since Katherine is a no go, Andy is looking for other stars to join as he plans to shake up the cast after this season.

ANDY COHEN IS SEARCHING FOR A TRANSGENDER “REAL HOUSEWIFE “

It’s only taken 17 years, but my Bravo source says the network and Andy Cohen are getting ready to shake things up with the popular Real Housewives franchise. While bisexual and lesbian housewives have already been featured, Andy has put out a secret casting call looking for a married transgender housewife to join one of the franchises. My source says that Andy is open to casting an MTF (male to female) housewife in ANY of the show’s incarnations, meaning it could be in Beverly Hills, Atlanta, New Jersey or any other city they feature. Andy’s dream transgender housewife must be MARRIED to a MAN and live an over-the-top lavish lifestyle – meaning Caitlyn Jenner need not apply…

ANDERSON COOPER AND ANDY COHEN: ALMOST ROOMMATES

Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen have been friends for ages, but now they could become roommates. The guys call NYC home, but both spend enough time in Los Angeles for work and social commitments that they’ve started looking at a place to buy together. Anderson and Andy are looking at large condominiums in the West Hollywood and Beverly Hills area. They want a place where they can come and go without worrying about anything, so a doorman is on their list of requirements. They’d rarely if ever be there at the same time, but nonetheless want at least 3 bedrooms, one for each of them and a kids room for their children. In case you were curious- money doesn’t seem to be much of an issue as they’re looking in the $5 million and above category.

ANDY COHEN AND ANDERSON COOPER HAVE A PACT

They’ve never been more than friends, but CNN New Year’s Eve hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen are taking their relationship to the next level – executors of each others wills! They’re both in their mid-fifties and are dads to young children, so they want to make sure their kids are protected if something were to happen. They’ve always been close, but since becoming fathers they’ve really bonded. They recently met with their attorneys to make it legal.

NICOLLETTE SHERIDAN’S TANGLED WEB

If ANYBODY was born to be on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it is Nicollette Sheridan. She has everything going for her – EXCEPT perhaps, she married the wrong men. You might remember Nicollette was furious in 2009 when she was fired from Desperate Housewives . She sued the show and producer Marc Cherry and spent several years in and out of court, only to lose in the end. Fast forward to RHOBH in 2019 – Lisa Rinna gossiped on the show with Denise Richards that when Nicollette was married to Lisa’s present husband Harry Hamlin, she cheated with Michael Bolton and that’s what ended the marriage. Richards was amused because she is now married to another Nicollette ex-husband, Aaron Phypers. Nicollette was outraged and disagreed with Lisa, but fans loved the situation and campaigned to have Nicollette join the show when Denise Richards left. Andy Cohen finally confirmed that Sheridan will NOT be joining the show due to her feud with Lisa Rinna. But he HAS been known to change his mind…

ANDY COHEN: NO MORE SWINGING BACHELOR?

Andy Cohen’s little boy Benjamin is now in his terrible twos and Andy admits it’s both good and bad. Ben has started to throw things at his father for fun, but he’s also learning to say “I love you” and that makes up for a lot. At 52, Andy might be the happiest dad in NYC. He’s a single father (via surrogate) but Andy says he keeps Ben surrounded by as many women as possible. He admits “Women have played a key role in my life – especially my mom- we all need them.” His pal Sarah Jessica Parker has supplied Andy with a lot of hand-me-down baby clothes and items, not to mention advice, since Ben was born. Andy says nowadays he would rather just stare at Ben than look at hot guys on his phone. At this young age, Ben is already starting to look a LOT like his dad.

ANDY COHEN HASN’T FORGOTTEN WACHA

Andy Cohen is setting a good example for dog owners who add babies to the household. It’s hard to imagine, but apparently some new parents are fearful that their dogs will be jealous or somehow a threat to the baby. Maybe they’re just too exhausted, but they end up giving away their once beloved pets. There’s no doubt that Andy’s Beagle Wacha was a huge part of his life before Benjamin was born by surrogate. Andy did it right – he had Wacha’s trainer on the job, making sure Wacha accepted the family addition, and the trainer declared that Wacha was absolutely no threat to Benjamin. Andy still includes Wacha in family photos and we love him for that.

ANDY COHEN HAS MORE CLOUT THAN HE REALIZED

Andy Cohen’s dog Wacha can’t help looking lovingly up at his owner while they take their daily walk in the West Village. Andy noticed one block that he usually traversed was frequently littered with trash. He complained loudly and was surprised when the block was suddenly cleaned up. Delighted with his accomplishment, Andy declared “I should run for mayor!” His online followers encouraged him to get into politics, but he’s too busy with “Watch What Happens Live” for now.
