On last night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” during the segment in which Andy Cohen’s celeb guest demonstrates their special talent, Whoopi Goldberg showed Andy and actress Zoe Saldana how to roll a joint. You know, of oregano. Or tobacco. Pick your poison! Anyway, Whoopi was probably feeling the pressure of a time limit because her doobie broke midway through. Rolling a tight, fat joint means taking your time, man. A producer signaling to go to commercial would totally harsh my mellow too.
I am so mad at Andy Cohen for not inviting me to be inside this Jessica Walter and Elisabeth Moss sandwich. “Arrested Development”? “Mad Men”? Booze? LIFE. Any challenges Elisabeth to a game of Plead The Fifth and, class act that she is, she had nothing to say about her costar’s famously well-endowed penis. I was kinda hoping she would plead the fifth, so she could use Jessica’s favorite Lucille Bluth line, “I don’t understand the question and I won’t respond to it.” [Bravo TV]
I guess it figures that the only time Bravo’s “Watch What Happens” had a discussion about radical feminism the two guests were:
- A “Real Housewife.”
- Camille Paglia.
Here’s Paglia on why the “Housewives” ladies should be celebrated for the “fabulosity of their sexual power.” After the jump, she continues to criticize second-wave feminism. Keep reading »
Saucy little minx Meryl Streep hit up “Watch What Happens Live” for a rousing game of Shun, Shag or Marry with her ex-costars. The options were Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman. Personally I would have chosen Redford to shag and that offer will remain open until he’s dead. [Bravo TV]
“Call Me Maybe” is catchiest damn song of the summer, so it figures the Miss USA pageant did its very own cover. It is safe to say none of the contestants will take home the prize for lip synching, but there are a couple funny cameos by the hosts Bravo’s Andy Cohen and E!’s Giuliana Rancic. And (ick) Donald Trump, who owns the pageant (likely to scope out new wives).
By the way, Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo, a 20-year-old cellist, won the pageant. I’m not sure which one she is in the video … maybe one of the ones in bikinis? [YouTube]
Andy Cohen: [A commenter] wants to know what you think about the comparisons people have made between you and Adele.
Beth Ditto: I think we’re both fat.
– That’s the ineffable Beth Ditto, lead singer of the band Gossip, on Thursday night’s “Watch What Happens Live.” Ms. Ditto was so friggin’ charming as she fielded questions from Andy Cohen and shot the shit with him and Adam Lambert (who’s obviously had tons more media training and was way more bo-ring to watch). Beth, I would watch a whole cable access channel devoted primarily to you and your musings and your amazing fashions. And she’s right, there’s not really much the same about Beth and Adele; Beth seems way more fun at a party.
I can’t be the only one who watched the “The Nanny” growing up and wished my parents would magically morph into a wealthy, single Broadway producer on the Upper East Side who needed to hire a daffy, loud-mouthed woman from Flushing, Queens, to take care of me. She’s got style! She’s got flair! She was there! That’s how she became the nanny! So I am as bemused as I am horrified to watch Fran Drescher read aloud erotic “Nanny” fan fiction on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live.” No, Fran, no! As far as my childhood was concerned, Mr. Sheffield was completely asexual. [Perez Hilton]
