On the Monday night’s post-Oscar episode of “Watch What Happens: Live,” host, Andy Cohen welcomed actress Wendi McLendon-Covey, a “Housewives” aficionado and his good friend journalist Anderson Cooper. Wendi starred on “Reno 911,” the movie “Bridesmaids,” as the irrepressible Liz on “Rules of Engagement,” and “Modern Family” as Pam and will be appearing in the upcoming movie, “Masters of Sex.”
Anderson is a regular on Andy’s show, and has his own shows, “Anderson Live,” “Anderson Cooper 360,” and a contributor on “60 Minutes.” The guest bartender was author of “The Liar, the Bitch and the Wardrobe,” Allie Kingsley.
Andy reported that Brandi Glanville of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” was at the Oscars in a very revealing dress, that Anderson mentioned she made all her own dresses. Wendi, who was a presenter last year, said that she fell asleep during part of it, and it should not be longer than two hours. After twenty minutes, when William Shatner told Seth MacFarlane to start the show, Wendi was appalled that it had not started yet. They agreed that the “funny bits” needed to be eliminated, not the technical awards.
In a segment called “Snap Judgment,” Anderson had to give his immediate take on a picture from the photo booth on his show. The first was he and Patty Stanger, who he said was fun, and he enjoyed her on his show. Anderson with Camille Grammar garnered a shoulder shrug from Anderson; Ramona Singer’s picture with Anderson gave him no recall about the show. For Bethany Frankel, he said was a legend and Phaedra Parks was fun. The picture of he with Lisa Vanderpump and Jiggy were his favorites of all the housewives. He mentioned that Ken was starting to look more like Jiggy every day.
A question came to Wendi as to when a “Bridesmaids 2” is happening, she replied that she had no idea. When a caller wanted to know if Anderson preferred a donkey booty or a stallion booty, he said that he did not know the difference. He will have Kendra Moore on his show tomorrow and find out. Andy said that she made a Stallion Booty video that is available for a pre-order.
When Andy asked Anderson, who recently “came out” how he felt about others who have not done so, he replied that it is a personal decision, but it sheds a brighter light on the situation.
Andy provided the viewers with a sneak peek of next week’s reunion of “Vanderpump Rules.”
A caller asked Wendi what she thought of Seth MacFarlane as a comedian? She said hosting was a thankless job because nobody wants to see anything but the celebrities and the awards. They all commented negatively on the mundane three hours of red carpet appearances prior to the awards ceremony.
Andy’s “Jack-Hole of the Day” was the warlock chic look among some of the men at the Oscars with longer hair than the women.
Whatever is trending on Bravo, good or bad; it will be topical with Andy Cohen and his guests on “Watch What Happens: Live.”
