Watch What Happens Live

Andy Cohen Recreates Famous Pretty Woman Scene with Help from a Real Housewife!

Posted on

Andy Cohen has taken his hit late night live talk show to the west coast for the week. And in an exclusive clip from Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the 48-year-old recreates a scene from one of Hollywood’s most famous rom-coms — with the help of a Real Housewife, of course.

Shopping off Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills for some new duds, Cohen — dressed in flip-flops, short shorts, and a sleeveless Erika Jayne XXPEN$IVE T-shirt — steps into a high-end fashion boutique where he’s greeted by a surly sales clerk who isn’t too excited to wait on him.

“We don’t have anything for you, okay?” she tells him. “I think you’re in the wrong place. Please leave!”

If the setup sounds familiar, it’s because it’s a nearly word-for-word parody of Pretty Woman — the 1990 film starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.

As fans remember, Roberts’ character — an escort who is woo’ed by Gere’s rich corporate raider —  attempts to go shopping in a similar store in the film, but is asked to exit the establishment due to her appearance. A few scenes later, she returns with a handful of bags after a total makeover, reminding the store’s employee that she made a “big mistake.”

Cohen gets his revenge in his Pretty Woman parody too — coming back “like 5 minutes later” dressed in his WWHL suit, carrying a bundle of shopping bags (including one from Kim D’s New Jersey boutique Posche, often seen on The Real Housewives of New Jersey).

Oh, and did we mention this all takes place in Kyle by Alene Too — and the sales associate is played by owner and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards?

Check out the video above to see how it all plays out.

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen airs live from the Palace Theatre (8 p.m. PT/11 p.m. ET) through Sunday on Bravo.
