Deuces, NYC! Andy Cohen Packs His Bags for Los Angeles

It's been a hectic month for Andy Cohen to say the least.

The late night talk show host revealed shortly before the Christmas holiday that he is going to be a first time father sometime in February, as his surrogate is only weeks from giving birth. He later on announced during his hosting gig on CNN's New Years Eve alongside his BFF Anderson Cooper that baby number one for him will be a boy.

Speaking of New Year's Eve, the Watch What Happens Live host got torn apart on social media with many people wishing that Kathy Griffin would return and replace him. Sadly that didn't happen, and probably won't happen for a long time (if ever).

Now Andy has revealed another big piece of news, as he told PEOPLE on Monday that he's moving to Los Angeles from New York City... at least for a short period of time.

WWHL will be relocating to LA for six weeks beginning January 14th. He's done this show in the sunny Californian city in the past not once but twice.

"Moving the Clubhouse to L.A. is a win all the way around." he said. "There will be great guests, great energy and I can make a 9 p.m. dinner reservation after we get off the air!"

The guests for his show are pretty fabulous so far, with RuPaul, Christina Aguilera and more planning on stopping by. All of this will be in preparation for possibly the biggest moment of his life: becoming a dad. 

 

Andy Cohen Gets SLAMMED Again on Social Media for His New Year's Eve Hosting Gig

Social media has spoken, and once again, they didn't seem to enjoy Andy Cohen hosting CNN's New Year's Eve special for the second year in a row.

Andy replaced Kathy Griffin last year after the red headed comedian got herself into a ton of hot water over the whole Donald Trump mask debacle. The Watch What Happens Live host was categorically slammed on social media as a result for his hosting abilities alongside Anderson Cooper, and that didn't change much this year.

 

Kathy had some fun with this as well, retweeting several supportive tweets from fans who miss her on the CNN podium in Times Square.

She also claimed that Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones was in talks to replace Andy this year but wasn't able to due to a variety of reasons. Leslie wound up appearing on NBC's telecast alongside Chrissy Teigen and Carson Daly

There was some joy for Andy last night regardless of how badly he was criticized on social media. The 50-year-old made the announcement that he's having a boy only days after revealing that he's going to be a father for this first time in his life.

How did you think Andy did during his hosting duties?

Kathy Griffin Dishes On Who Almost Replaced Andy Cohen on CNN's NYE Telecast

Kathy Griffin is spilling some delicious tea regarding some allegations over who was supposed to replace Andy Cohen for this year's CNN New Year's Eve telecast.

The legendary comedian hosted this alongside Anderson Cooper for several years but got the axe in 2017 after her whole Donald Trump mask debacle. Andy replaced her, much to the frustration of people in and out of the LGBTQ community. The Watch What Happens Live host was then trashed on social media during the live telecast last NYE. 

She discussed who was supposed to replace Andy early Monday morning with a tweet that started with "I’ve been in this business for over 30 years...I’ve gotten to know everybody. A few little birdies told me some juicy nuggets..."

Turns out it was allegedly Saturday Night Live comedian Leslie Jones that was in talks to replace Andy... according to Kathy.

It was news that Kathy was quite happy about.

Kathy then gushed over how much she loved Leslie.

She then heard that Leslie had been "downgraded her to a couple of segments or some sort of a guest role."

This made Kathy very frustrated about their treatment of Leslie.

She then heard from other people that the reason Leslie was dropped was because NBC Universal did not want her appearing on another network.

Turns out she'll be appearing on NBC's New Year's Eve telecast, but not as a cohost. Those privileges belong to Carson Daly and Chrissy Teigen

Kathy wasn't done however, as she questioned why NBC Universal wouldn't have an issue with Andy jumping ship to CNN but when it comes to Leslie they allegedly would.

She then discussed the issues surrounding how much she got paid versus Anderson for the gig, and hopes that Leslie gets paid fairly for her turn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How Did Andy Cohen Keep His Impending Fatherhood a Secret?

Jaws dropped on Thursday when Andy Cohen revealed that he is going to be a father for the first time ever in a matter of weeks. 

He made the announcement during an episode of Watch What Happens Live amongst several OG Real Housewives including Kyle Richards, Vicki Gunvalson and NeNe Leakes.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

A post shared by Andy Cohen (@bravoandy) on

“Tonight, I want you to be the first to know, after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan in about six weeks’ time I’m going to become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future,” he revealed as the audience and other Housewives shrieked. 

Andy shared their reactions after he said the news on his Instagram Sunday night (the original view was just his face). So how the heck did he keep this huge life decision from them and the rest of the world?

Radar Online exclusively found out that he simply did what many of us do in our daily lives... he didn't tell them (them meaning the Housewives). 

“None of the Real Housewives knew," an insider told Radar. "They can’t be trusted and gossip too much,” an insider told Radar. “Plus, he knew one of them would leak it on social media to get more followers!”

Insiders say that only a couple of select friends knew what was really going on. "Anderson Cooper and Sarah Jessica Parker knew along with his family and a few close friends,” the source continued. “But he kept the secret by telling almost nobody!”

Radar also claimed that Andy will be taking time off when he becomes a father next year. So will his baby be making an eventual appearance on WWHL or even better... at one of the Housewives reunions? Time will tell. 

 

Andy Cohen Gets Mazel of the Year With Huge Announcement

On Thursday´s episode of Watch What Happens LiveAndy Cohen shared some exciting news--he's gonna be a daddy--and not the kind you think. Cohen, who is 50, during his final show of 2018 revealed the news that he will be having a baby via surrogate in front of the great lineup of Housewives guests: NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards, Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, and Teresa Giudice.

During the announcement, Cohen shared:

Tonight I want to share a little personal news of my own. To the viewers at home, I call you my friends at home because we are friends. You have supported me through almost 10 years of live… This has been an incredible joyous journey with you all. I am grateful to be able to live my dream every day and grateful to you for coming along for the ride. And throughout it, I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life — I overshare and expect everyone to do the same. Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science — if all goes according to plan in about six weeks time I’m going to become a father. Thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future. Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life. Though it’s taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision will be the most rewarding chapter yet.

Nothing else has been revealed about Cohen´s upcoming bundle of joy.

Andy Cohen Shares He & Anderson Cooper Are 'Eskimo Brothers'

On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen revealed that he and bestie Anderson Cooper are ‘eskimo brothers.’

Ok, so who knows what that means? Show of hands, please…

While playing a game of “One, Two, AC,” the duo demonstrated how much they know about each other by answering personal questions simultaneously.

Cynthia Bailey, of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, played the role of game show hostess.

The first question was pretty tame: “What is Andy’s favorite food to eat while stoned?”

Andy said ‘Everything, but Anderson replied, ‘Doritos!’

And apparently, Andy likes to lick the cheese coating off before getting to the crunch.

Then, Bailey queried, “What’s the one thing people don’t know about the two of you? Oh, this should be good.”

Anderson trips up thinking of an answer but Andy announces, “That we’re eskimo brothers.”

Anderson, totally confused, asked, “What???”

Bailey didn’t seem to know either.

Andy told the two, “You’ve gotta look it up on the urban dictionary, I can’t say on the show.”

Anderson, still in shock, stammers, “I don’t even know if that’s true!”

Andy reaffirmed the ‘brotherhood’ saying, “It’s true - we just found this out a few weeks ago.”

The Urban Dictionary defines the term ‘eskimo brothers’ as “When two males acknowledge having been intimate with the same female and remain on good terms, the men are now bonded by having shared the same igloo at one time or another.”

In other words, when two guys have had sex with the same person. 

Alrighty, then. Who reading this knew that already?

The game did continue with Bailey asking "If Anderson were an animal, what kind of animal would it be?"

And the boys both nailed it: a sloth.

Hmmm...

By the way, Gay Star News points up that the term ‘eskimo’ is actually considered a derogatory term.

Watch the revelation below.

Former ‘RHONJ’ Star Says ‘‘No Straight Male Wants His Son To Be Gay’

Jim Marchese, who appeared alongside his wife Amber for one season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey back in 2014, has made headlines over his blatant homophobic language on social media.

He spoke out in defense of comedian Kevin Hart, who backed out of hosting The Oscars due to the backlash he received over his past homophobic statements that include him not wanting his son to be gay.

Jim agreed with Kevin’s previous sentiment on the matter, and let his feelings be known on his Twitter Sunday.

“So true NO STRAIGHT MALE wants his son to be gay,” he tweeted. “A gay son is a curse that takes away your #family traditions #heritage #lgtbiq is a a parents nightmare that destroys families. Ruins holidays like #Christmas #KevinHart we support you! #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder.”

Andy Cohen spoke out about whole ordeal, responding to another Twitter account who said “Thank god you fired them after one season.”

“Thank gd (sic) is right. Sick. Pray for his poor kids,” Andy said. The Watch What Happens Live host also appeared to mock him in two separate tweets, saying “What a great guy!” in one and “This is perfectly on brand for him” in another.

Jim clapped back at Andy for “trolling” his account while bringing up RHONJ in the process. “Creepy that @andy trolls my account. IT is SICK to refuse to have women viciously attack & abuse each so you can be famous & become wealthy...”

Fans online have asked Andy to make Jim the “Jackh**e of the Day” on WWHL as a result of his language.

Remember That Time Ryan Reynolds Talked About His Taint on Live Television?

Ryan Reynolds has long been one of those Hollywood studs that we have thought naughty things about. The Buried star has also teased us in his own type of way over the years by making statements that skew on the gay side like how he wanted to have a taste of all three Chris’ (Hemsworth, Pratt, Evans).

This is all in good fun, of course, as he’s happily married to arguably one of the most beautiful women in the industry Blake Lively, but the super sexy moments he’s given us over the years are ones that we still think about in and outside of the bedroom today.

Take for instance this wonderful #TBT moment where he appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live alongside Olivia Wilde back in 2016. Host Andy Cohen, who has done a remarkable job at getting celebs to talk about their truly intimate & wild moments, did the same with Ryan during the segment known as Plead the Fifth.

Andy’s first question to Ryan, whose smash hit movie Deadpool was released around the time of this interview in 2016, was about what superhero could be a “flaming homosexual”. His response: “Archie”, who isn’t a superhero at all but a classic comic book character.

He then asked the now 41-year-old about a part of his body that he does not care for. “I’ve never seen my perineum,” he replied, “because it’s so far under there”. Perineum is described as the area between the anus and the scrotum, or as many of us in the community commonly refer to it as… the taint.  

Kinky. Watch the clip below:

 

 

Andy Cohen is Over 'Top and 'Bottom' Labels and Wants You to Know Why

It's fascinating that talking bobble head Andy Cohen is now speaking out on "top and bottom labels being outdated" when he has said that he's a top in numerous interviews over the past couple of years.

The Watch What Happens Live host discussed his all of a sudden type of views with Attitude Magazine, where the Bravo mainstay appears in their October issue.

"I’ve been thinking about the whole bottom/top thing. There’s a lot of bottom-shaming going on," he said. "It’s a question that I’ve been asked and I’ve answered over the years and I feel the question has become out of date, and the reason why is because what defines sex anyway?"

The 50-year-old goes on to talk about how his definition of sex was just about intimacy and how it can be "achieved in many different ways." 

"So, the connotation about being a top or a bottom, I think for the person/the spectator who from the outside, or who can just be looking to make a generalization, it insinuates ‘Who’s the man and who’s the woman?’ which obviously is outdated."

Do you think that the whole top and bottom thing should be left in the past?

Andy Cohen Opens Up About Dating And Using Gay Apps

Andy Cohen seems to be getting more personal than ever and we don't mind!

In his talk with Attitude Magazine for their October issue, Cohen was asked about his attitudes towards sex. In his response, he shared that he doesn't hide anything when it comes to talking about sex.

“I talk about poppers and about bottoms on my show,” he said during the interview. “That’s the thing, I’m really open about who I am and am unapologetic, so I think there’s something freeing in that.”

Andy Cohen has been out since the 1980s and says he’s gotten used to talking about his sexuality. But according to him, and shared in Queerty, that wasn’t always the case.

“I came out in 1988, at the height of the [AIDS] epidemic,” he says. “I was so scared to have sex. And it’s why I’m alive today, because I was really scared.”

“It was a scary time to be gay, it was a scary time to be sexual… It’s always kind of there in one way or another. It’s not something you can erase from your experience.” 

 

 

Now, he says what really scares him is getting out there to date.

“I think it’s harder for other people to sit down with me and have a date because they have preconceived notions,” Andy says.

“If I had never dated myself or I didn’t know me and it was just based on TV, I don’t know what I would think. I have no idea.”

But what about dating apps like Grindr and it’s new Kindr campaign? Well, Cohen says he still uses them… on occasion.

“I have been, kind of on-and-off because it’s challenging,” he explains. “It’s weird. It was probably more uncomplicated hooking up before I became famous.”

“I still hook up,” he adds. “I mean, a guy’s gotta eat!”

Thanks Andy for being open and honest about being just like us when it comes to trying to find fun as well as "the one."
