Andy Cohen recalls the two times he feared he went too far on Watch What Happens Live
“I asked Oprah if she had ever been with a woman and that was a little tense,” says Cohen, who brought his 32-set Bravo show to an audience of 1,300 this week in Los Angeles. “And I asked Shaq how big his (penis) was — he wears a size 26 shoe! I was scared. It was on my mind all day. And then I came to work and I said, ‘I can’t ask him this. And they were like, ‘Oh, you’re asking!’"

Why doesn't Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live get any respect?
Cohen's late-night Bravo show has been doing something very unique in late-night for nearly a decade, yet it gets no respect. "What Watch What Happens Live is pulling off five nights a week not only separates the show from its competition, but is fully reinventing late night shows in the most fun, daring, and ridiculous of ways," says Lea Palmieri. "So why, WHY, are we not giving the program the love and respect and acknowledgment (are you listening, Emmy voters?) it deserves?"

Despite Kathie Lee Gifford's experiences with sexual misconduct, she reached out to "friends" Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby
“I just want people to know I don’t judge them. I don’t like what they do, but God knows their hearts and there’s hope for them," the Today co-host told Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM radio show. “You can’t call yourself a friend if the first minute there’s trouble, you run. That’s called a fair-weather friend and that’s not a friend at all." Gifford added: "I, personally, since I got into this business, as a teenage girl, I have been sexually harassed, I have been sexually abused and I have been date raped. Don’t tell me they’re all the same, because they are not. They are not the same. Unless you’ve been through it and you can say they are the same, then fine. Not the same to me.”
