Andy Cohen is clapping back at Jillian Michaels and her criticism of the Real Housewives franchises.
Earlier this month former Biggest Loser coach Jillian Michaels slammed Andy Cohen and Real Housewives during an interview with Life and Style.
“I hate that shit. I never watch it,” Jillian said of the Real Housewives. “I hate watching women tear each other apart. Anybody who watches it, shame on you.”
“It’s like [the franchise] was created by someone that hates women,” she added. “I mean, the guy hates them. He’s an asshole.”
As for Jillian’s claims he hates women, Andy says, “I love women. ‘Housewives’ is a show about women and it’s predominately for women, even though so many men watch it so I think that’s a really good question for the millions of women who watch the shows.”
“It’s a show about friendship. It’s a show about being a wife. It’s a show about being a mother. It’s a show about being a sister. And sometimes the experience of being a friend and a mother and a wife and a sister isn’t pleasant and sometimes it’s wonderful,” Andy told the Hollywood Reporter.
“I think [Michaels] probably never watched it,” he continued. “I think she’s probably seen a clip of Teresa flipping a table.”
“By the way, this is the woman who screamed at people for a living on ‘The Biggest Loser.’ She should stay in her own lane,” Andy wrapped.
Go, Andy! I’m so glad that Andy responded to Jillian’s outlandish remarks.
Thoughts on Andy’s response? Do you believe Andy loves women? Is Housewives a show about friendship? Should Jillian stay in her own lane?
