The Real Housewives are known for their explosive reunion episodes, that are always hosted by Bravo honcho, Andy Cohen. He serves as an executive producer for the hit series, plus he hosts the Real Housewives reunions and his late-night talk show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Now Andy is dishing about the reunions and what upsets him during the reunion tapings. Plus, he’s sharing casting secrets and revealing which celebrity he would most want to join the series!
In a new Bravo Insider video, Andy opened up about the Real Housewives reunions. Something he doesn’t like while hosting them? All of the breaks that the ladies want to take. Andy said, “I get very upset because it’s a very long day.” He said it’s usually when the ladies all need to go to the bathroom at different times, as well as when they want their glam squad to touch them up. Andy explained, “You know, you’re sitting with six or seven women and someone has to invariably pee and they’re like, ‘I can’t hold it anymore.’ And I’m like, ‘Okay if they go to the bathroom we’re going to take a break.’ And then what happens after someone goes to the bathroom is they say, ‘Bring glam in’ which means it’s going to be like six minutes.” Andy also explained that all of the breaks for glam add up. He added, “I’m like, ‘You just were touched up an hour ago. Nothings happened, you’ve just been sitting here.'”
Andy answered popular casting questions, in regards to Real Housewives. So who gets to choose who gets cast on the show? Andy answered, “It’s a mix between the production company, myself, and the executives at Bravo.” When selecting ladies for the show they have casting directors working and they also turn to the ladies to see if they know anyone that would be a good match. Andy explained, “They’re selected either through, we either have casting directors for each city or we go to the women and we say, ‘Do you know anyone?’ Usually casting directors find people who actually, ‘Oh I know Tinsley’ or ‘I know Lisa Rinna.'”
Andy also revealed which celebrity he would most want to join Real Housewives! Andy said, “Chrissy Teigen!”
When asked about when he will introduce his son to the show, Andy replied that he was going to let his son find it on his own. Andy welcomed his son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, into the world this year. Andy watches the show at home, though, and the baby can sometimes hear it. Andy joked, “‘Are those birds chirping?’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s Kelly Dodd.'” The Real Housewives of Orange County is currently airing season 14 on Bravo TV. They’re already having an explosive season and we are just a few episodes in, which is what Andy was joking about.
