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]
You may not know this about me, but I grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona. I don’t mention it often as I felt like a freak of nature there, where silicon and suntanning are a way of life … just not my way. However, I am tickled to hear the rumor that Andy Cohen and his minions were spotted in Scottsdale casting a new “Housewives” franchise for Bravo. Nothing is confirmed, but sources say that Alejandra Nash, soon-to-be-ex-wife of NBA star Steve Nash, has signed on. Apparently she cheated on him and it resulted in a pregnancy. I’m already excited. If such a show came true, it would make for most entertaining television. Trust me. [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »
“On Tuesday, Heidi Montag tweeted ‘Watch out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Here comes Heidi…’ with a link to an article saying she and her husbland were talking to our producers about coming on the show. Professionally, I’m not supposed to discuss any negotiations so I have to parse my words here. That trash is delusional and I would sooner stab my knives into my eyes than see her on this network.”
– Andy Cohen, Bravo’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development and host of “Watch What Happens Live,” named Heidi Montag his “Jackhole of the Week” on last night’s show. Well, I guess that clears that up. [Starcasm] Keep reading »
I’m not surprised that Andy Cohen is ready for a change of pace from the all the “Real Housewives” cat fights that take place on his couch. During the “RHONJ” season two reunion, he even got caught in the fray when Teresa Giudice took him down in one swift panther-like movement in pursuit of Danielle Staub. Scary! Rumor is that Cohen is developing a “Housewives”-esque reality series for Bravo featuring successful gay men in New York City. Keep reading »
