Imagine John Lithgow as Fraiser Crane?
November 16th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, John Lithgow. [ Comments: none ]

When we think of Fraiser Crane, we think of Kelsey Grammer playing him. Turns out the role was not written for him, it was actually written for John Lithgow. The actor confirmed it when a caller asked him about it on Watch What Happens Live the other night.

He told Andy Cohen, “It is true and I don’t tell people in deference to Kelsey. If I had accepted that role nobody would have ever heard of Fraiser Crane. He is the one who made it into an incredible phenomenon.”

Then he explained why he turned it down, “At that point, at my life, like episodic television was beneath my dignity and look at me now.” In 1984, he became a huge star because of The Day After and Footloose and had several films due out. Therefore, his mentality about that makes sense.

Does he regret his decision because that character lasted 20 years and earned Grammer several Emmys. The Trial & Error star said, “I envy his affluence. But had I done that, I never would have done Third Rock from the Sun. And that was the best 6 years I ever had.” Proving everything happens for a reason because Third Rock was a much show TBH!

Now that you know he was the person that producers envisioned for the role, can you imagine him playing the doctor?


Anderson Cooper had another cute giggle attack!

Anderson Cooper was hanging out with Andy Cohen and his dog, and Wacha couldn’t stop licking his best friend’s best friend. Because of that the CNN anchor couldn’t stop giggling in his own special way. Which means we cannot stop smiling while watching this arfdorable video of puppy love!

I guess you can say Anderson takes licking and keeps on giggling.


Which New Kids on the Block member has the biggest member?

Donnie Wahlberg and his wife, Jenny McCarthy, were on Watch What Happens Live the other night and Andy Cohen wanted to know which New Kid on the Block is hangin’ tough. That is when the Blue Bloods star said, “I’ve seen them all…It depends. Some of us are growers. Some are showers.” Then it was time for the big reveal, “Joey, hanging around, has like a young child between his legs. I’m not sure how well it grows.” That means the littlest member of the boy band is all the biggest.

Now what about Donnie, does he have the right stuff? The Mrs shared with us, “You’re the biggest…grower.” To which he replied, “It grows OK!” And now I am going to watch them differently as they take each Step by Step because this revelation blew my mind. Didn’t he blow your mind this time?


Henry Winkler talks about the Jump the Shark episode
October 27th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, Henry Winkler. [ Comments: none ]

I am sure you have heard the expression “jump the shark.” It refers to when a show has climaxed and reached the point of no return, and it is all downhill from there. The reference is from the Happy Days episode when the cast went to California and the Fonz jumps a shark. It was so over the top that there was nothing that the show could do to go back to the way it was beforehand.

It has been 40 years, one month and one week since that legendary episode aired and yesterday Henry Winkler talked about it on Watch What Happens Live. Andy Cohen wanted to knew if the actor thought the show really jumped the shark with that episode. Arthur Fonzerelli told him, “One, we did it in the fourth year and we were number one for the next five years. So I really didn’t care.” Then he added, “There were still newspapers and every time they mentioned ‘jumped the shark’ they would show a picture of me water skiing. And at that time I had great legs!” In other words, take your jump the shark and go swim with one!

When it comes to who he wants to play Fonzie, if they ever do a remake, and he said it is a toss up between Robert De Niro and Ryan Gosling.

Another caller wanted to know which of his Better Late Than Never co-vacationers would he Shag, Marry or Kill. He said he would kill William Shatner, marry George Foreman for his money and shag Terry Bradshaw because he claims to have a lot of money but he does not have a grill like the boxer. On that note, Better Late Than Never will be back on NBC New Year’s Day! I hope I am sobered up by then because I love love love this show that has yet to jump the shark!


Imagine Footloose with Valerie Bertinelli instead!
October 19th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, Valerie Bertinelli. [ Comments: none ]

As we know, Lori Singer got the part of Ariel in 1984’s Footloose. Before she got the job of a lifetime, there were two other actresses who were also up for it. They are Fast Times at Ridgemont High’s Jennifer Jason Leigh and One Day at a Time’s Valerie Bertinelli. The latter has her theory why she didn’t get it. She told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live yesterday that she can’t dance. That as we all know, is a key requirement for that classic movie.

Proving she might be Hot In Cleveland, but she is not hot on the dance floor. Now I am going to spend the whole day pondering what it would have been like if she got the starring role in that film.
