Watch What Happens Live: RHoNY Suck Up to Andy

Recommended Posts


I don’t like that they tacked it on to the episode time so my DVR records it with the episode. It’s forced, I hate that.

Anyone else watch on RHONY premiere night?   Luann was loaded; so I guess the no drinking thing didn't stick.  Shocker.

I didn't realize it was not part of the episode - half asleep. But not too sleepy to notice that LuAnn was stoned out of her gourd. Not a good look.

Later this season: Lu “fixes” her allergy to alcohol by following each tequila shot with a Benadryl chaser!

I noticed that they’ve been doing that with RHONJ for a while now. So irritating. Not interested in artificially boosting Andy’s ratings.

 I’m curious if that’s why they did it. It’s annoying.

Which Bethenny immediately takes Lu's idea and brands as a Bethadryl chaser and sells it for 80 gazillion dollars!

Leah shouldn't be a thing..or allowed back formal a second season.

She just oozes anger and meanness.  

She was mean and bitchy on WWHL tonight.

Perfect! Because Bethenny can market it from her personal experience too:

“Have you ever been at a dinner party with a group of girlfriends and not been exactly sure what’s in the food? Were you too busy “discussing” tough topics to check with the chef?  OOPSIE! Turns out you just ate fish, which you’re deathly allergic to! Just grab a Bethadryl chaser and force it down your craw before your throat closes off! You’ll be back to fighting with your friends in no time!”

Also in development and coming soon: the calorie-free Bethipen for those more urgent situations where the craw has already closed up.

I don’t know .. maybe it’s me, but after the last two episodes, WWHL comes on automatically.  To me, Andy had a different look to him.  It looked like embarrasment to me.  Maybe he realized the show went too far and the viewers didn’t like them?

Maybe because no one is watching his show so he tacks it on to end of the episodes hoping for more viewers,

I feel we might see some changes in the Real Housewife sphere in the not-so-distant-future for a few reasons.

Ratings have gone down for all Bravo shows. Personally, I feel the pandemic has something to do with it. Too much of a good thing, as they say. People are burned out and ready for something different. 

I also read somewhere that Andy said something like if something ever happened to his job, he still has his radio gig. It was if he was trying to tell us something.

Finally, wasn't the Real Housewives franchise recently sold? Not all of Bravo, but whatever part that owns RH....NBC maybe? That's gotta make all involved a bit nervous.

Also, I came across the following blurb from a Wikipedia page when trying to find links for the above (unsuccessfully....but I swear I read 'em!).  Interesting:

Quote

"Future

On December 2, 2016, Cohen spoke on the future of the franchise, saying if there were to be a new installment to the franchise that it could be set in Nashville, Tennessee. Cohen also stated that an All Star edition would serve as an end-goal for the franchise when ratings begin to drop. He added that it would likely feature eight housewives with "big personalities" from each series on an island together."

Could the island show that just filmed be the beginning of the end?

I can tell you this.  I have been watching seasons 2-6 on Peacock with full attention.  I have not watched the last 2 current episodes yet and I don’t know if I will.  They are saved in my queue, but if I ever get to them (after reading comments here and elsewhere), it will be while I’m doing housework or something.  I’m literally watching Harry Dubin and Sonja “break up” as we speak and it is SO MUCH BETTER than anything Leah or Eboni can bring to the show.

My kid said when you watch it live, it records the ratings, but not if you record it on the DVR.  So, that’s what I do .. record it.

Yep.  Jersey seemed unchanged because they had the men on, went to the ocean, etc.  All N.Y. had were wineries and two houses.   Also, LuAnn sneaking drinks.  She is struggling.  Looks like anyhow.  I had my first outing in a restaurant yesterday after over a year.  Had a big Bloody Mary too.  Boy, was that good, as I don’t usually drink.

Well, that’s interesting.  It seems like there is not much effort in the shows anymore ..like they are just coasting.    P.S.  I just read an article in my weekly t.v. Guide that said tv shows will be changing .. they will be going to streaming, whichever one we pick .. Peacock, Hulu, etc.  They said tv will become very confusing for people.

My understanding is that they do track DVR recordings, along with live viewings and On Demand downloads. It includes day of and several days after. That’s why my viewings are delayed for a bit, unless I want to help support shows I actually do like (like Family Karma!).

It already is, for me. Or at least it's very expensive!  Agreed that the future of tv will be interesting. Much like the music biz, I suppose. Lots of big names are selling their archives now because the'll never be able to earn money off them the way they did before streaming.

This is my understanding as well.I also think airing decisions don't just have to do with ratings anymore. Now-a-days, I believe social media following are incorporated.  RH's have big numbers and they are essentially free advertising for networks, etc.  And, online arguments drive the drama.

I think companies are spending too much time making decisions based upon Social Media vs. actual market research. Relying on social media narrows your audience. Social media is so polarizing and many people feel they do not have the freedom to express and opinion while others feel free to post whatever they want.

Dorinda on WWHL is dropping big hints that she wants backo RHNY and Andy is acting receptive. Wonder if she'll be back next year. I bet she will.

I saw that and mentioned it on Dorinda's thread.  I particularly noticed both she and Andy called her absence from this season a "pause" rather than a termination/fired.

She also mentioned being in touch with everyone but Ramona.
