Andy Cohen Says Teresa and Joe Giudice Were the Most Difficult to Interview
It took no hesitation for Andy Cohen to name his most difficult interview subjects.
“That Teresa and Joe [Giudice] interview was no piece of cake,” said the Watch What Happens Live host when the question was put before him during a fan Q&A at the Gilt City Miami launch party at Villa Azur for the just-published The Andy Cohen Diaries, now at the top of Apple’s top paid iBook list.
“They’re not the most reflective people I’ve met,” he said. “I’m not throwing shade, but they’re not reflective and introspective.”
In spite of the couple’s status as interview subjects, when it comes to Teresa’s possible return to Real Housewives of New Jersey after she serves out her 15-month jail sentence, Cohen enthusiastically stated, “I hope so!”
Elsewhere in the realm of Housewives, specifically how the Real Housewives of New York cast is handling the return to the show of the controversial Bethenny Frankel – who feuded on-air with Jill Zarin and LuAnn de Lesseps – Cohen said, “I think that they think it’s good for the show, and they all have their own opinions about her personally, so we’ll see how they play out on the show.
“They’ve expressed to me their excitement, nerves I think they would be expressing to each other.”
Asked about any Housewife lobbying to get Zarin back on the show, Cohen said, “Yes! There is!”
But wait, there’s more. Insofar as which celebrity he’d love to see on the show, he said, “Beyoncé! She’d be great.” And, should there ever be an all-star Housewives cast, he’d like to see “Nene [Leakes], Teresa [Giudice], [Lisa] Vanderpump, Bethenny [Frankel], Adriana [de Moura] and [Vicki] Gunvalson.”
Then things got personal. When a fan joked that he should have been named PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, Cohen proudly pointed out, “I’m in the issue, check it out!”
