Whether it’s Kyle Richards and Brandi Glanville bickering on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or Vanderpump Rules romances flickering, Andy Cohen and his Bravo TV shows seem to have the magic touch when it comes to winning the ratings wars. And the reality TV stars who are paid for their famous cat fights and fond on-camera kisses help promote the show through Twitter, blogs, podcasts, and even appearances on talk shows, reported Realityea.
As an example, consider Kyle Richards and Brandi. They look, on the surface, as if they’re made to be best friends. They walk alike, they talk alike, at times they even yell alike. But in her blog, Kyle contended that the latest battle stemmed from what she termed Brandi’s aggression.
The incident arose, according to Kyle, when she was attempting to speak alone with her sister Kim Richards.
“I tried to walk Kim away from the cameras, as well as Brandi. Brandi was relentless. I asked her over and over again to leave us alone and let me speak with my sister privately.
“As Kim and I were standing by the garage trying to speak in private, Brandi grabbed both of my wrists and would not let go. I was shocked. I have never had anyone put a hand on me and honestly started to feel scared. I don’t want to be overly dramatic about the situation, but Brandi is 5’10” and I am 5’2″, and at this point I did not know what she was capable of, especially because she was intoxicated and aggressive.”
As for Bravo’s other shows, spin-offs often generate their own flames. For Vanderpump Rules, breakout stars and romances such as Tom Sandoval and Ariana have resulted in a boost in scores as well, reported Hollywood Life. Give a nod to Kristen, who can’t stop wishing Tom would end his affair with Ariana andn return to her.
Add in an alleged mistress known as Miami Girl and the nicely bubbling plot thickens.
So what does Andy Cohen think of his success? Below, he explains why he considers himself both a producer and a fan.
But Cohen also is a breakout reality TV star in his own right with his Watch What Happens Live show, as the Inquisitr reported. Andy’s developed the knack of luring stars ranging from Gwyneth Paltrow to Lady Gaga to his den of drinking, where he asks them any and all questions.
And in true Watch What Happens no-holds-barred interviews, Andy has gotten these celebrities to reveal unknown facts such as Paltrow’s use of hard drugs to Gaga’s revelation about what goes into an ARTPOP makeover. Just watch below.
