Andy Cohen Names Which 'Real Housewife' Has Had the 'Most Absurd' Business Venture

The talk show host got a taste of his own medicine with a game of "Plead the Fifth."

For many Real Housewives, the show itself is really just a jumping off point for their careers as entrepreneurs. Lifestyle guru, workout video instructor, vaginal rejuvenation expert…you name it, a Housewife has done it—some more successfully than others.

In an interview with PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly's Editorial Director Jess Cagle, the series' creator Andy Cohen plays his signature game of "Plead the Fifth"—and is pressed to name which cast member has had the "most absurd" business venture.

The first one that popped into his mind was RHOC alum Lynne Curtin's cuff line, but he backtracked after acknowledging she's actually made a "big business" from it.

Instead, he called out two women who have gotten into the wine business. "Somewhere, there is a warehouse full of vats of Fabellini," Cohen said of Teresa Giudice's peach-flavored Prosecco. "I'm not even kidding. Like, it's there, fermenting."

Ultimately, his grand prize goes to Sonja Morgan's Tipsy Girl Sparking Rosé, which caused plenty of drama on RHONY—but has still yet to take off otherwise.

For another question, he was asked to rank Lisa Rinna, Phaedra Parks, and Bethenny Frankel from least to most difficult—and ultimately chose them in that exact order. "That's not to say Bethenny is the most difficult person in the world, she's just intense," he clarified.

When asked to rank Teresa Giudice, Porsha Williams, Tamra Judge from least to most prone to violence, Cohen took advantage of his power to abstain. "I'm gonna plead the fifth, because honestly I don't think any of them are violent," he said.
