Counting his blessings!
Andy Cohen was elated when he learned of the lavish baby shower gift Erika Jayne and her now estranged husband Tom Girardi planned to give his son, Benjamin Cohen, however, the gift never turned up.
Now, years later the Watch What Happens Live host is thankful and happy about it especially considering Tom and Erika’s ongoing legal woes.
“Erika gave me a card that said she had given me I believe it was 2,000 — no, I think it was 1,000 shares of Disney stock, which is really expensive,” Andy said during a Tuesday, November 2, event at the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center in New York City.
“I called her and I said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ and she said, ‘That’s what we give to all the kids in our life.’”
Andy noted that he previously mentioned the gift at another event earlier this year. He then received a call from a reporter asking he thought the pricey gift might “implicate” him in Erika and Tom’s current legal drama.
That is when Andy revealed that the gift never actually arrived.
“So, I called Erika and was like, ‘Look, I got to be straight with you. This now is going to run in the paper and it’s going to look like I’m throwing you under the bus,’” Andy recalled.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star remembered that she never sent the stock over and agreed with Andy that it was a good thing.
“She said, ‘Andy, I know we didn’t [send it] and this has been on my mind,’” he explained. “She said, ‘I remember everything. I don’t forget anything. And I remember that we didn’t give you the gift,’ and she said, ‘Thank God we didn’t.’ And I said, ‘Thank God you didn’t! Like, I’m so glad you didn’t!’”
RHOBH will return to Bravo for season 12 in 2022.
