Andy Cohen is always getting celebrities to bare it all on Watch What Happens Live but it’s what happens behind the scenes that super juicy.
The talk show host recently answered questions at the 2017 TCA Press Tour about what happens in the clubhouse when cameras aren’t rolling and we are eating it up. Below are the best tidbits.
On what question made him the most uncomfortable to ask:
“There was some moment with Selena Gomez where I really felt like I had to bring up Justin Bieber.”
On the celebs who have gotten the drunkest:
“Rosie Perez, Ricki Lake…Oh yeah, Jussie Smollett and Gabby Sidibe happened recently. Just lit up like a Christmas tree!”
On the best guest pairings:
“John Mayer and Dan Rather was a really good pairing a few years ago, that I loved. We also try to put two unlikely people together…We try to go high-low sometimes. It usually works and sometimes it doesn’t.”
On the worst guest pairings:
“Joan Rivers on her last appearance on the show came on with Maksim [Chmerkovskiy] from ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ Before the show, he had said something that set her off and she turned to me and made it clear that this was going to be not fun for him. Somehow, he turned it around and it was incredible. But I will tell you, I was schvitzing.”
On asking Oprah if she’s ever taken a dip in the lady pond:
“It was a moment where I was a little scared.”
