Imagine Kelly Preston in Blue Lagoon
June 12th, 2018 under Andy Cohen. [ Comments: none ]

Kelly Preston was on Watch What Happens Live yesterday and Andy Cohen wanted to know if it is true that she almost got the part that went to Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon. She told him it is and then shared the story with him how it almost happened.

Three years before Preston started acting, Randal Kleiser spotted her at her high school and wanted her to screen test for his follow up movie to Grease. Therefore, the director flew her and her mom from Hawaii to LA to audition for the role. They even wanted her to get an all-over tan, but the then teen did not do it.

Eventually, the role went to Diane Lane and Willie Aames. But wait they were not in it? That is because they dropped out just days before filming was to start. That is when he got Shields and an unknown Christopher Atkins to star in his movie.

What is interesting is Kleiser worked with Travolta in The Boy in the Plastic Bubble and Grease in the late ’70s and almost worked with Preston in this 1980 film. He could have introduced the couple to each other earlier instead of the two meeting at the end of the decade while filming the movie The Experts. At least I find that interesting.


Laurie Metcalf reveals how many episodes Roseanne will do in the fall
May 26th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]

As we know, ABC picked up Roseanne for another season, but they did not tell us how many episodes there will be. Laurie Metcalf was on Watch What Happens Live the other night and she told Andy Cohen that there will be 13 new episodes in the fall.

Long before the show got a revival, some guy named George Clooney was her love interest on the show. A caller wanted to know what was the best and worst parts about working with the Oscar winner. She said the best part was playing are they or aren’t they. What was the worst part? Not the kissing, but him disappearing after season 1.


BTWF: Ron Livingston in Straight Talk
May 8th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Before They Were Famous, Dolly Parton, Ron Livingston. [ Comments: none ]

Before Ron Livingston starred in Office Space, he was invading Dolly Parton’s personal space in Straight Talk. How naughty and cute was the 24-year-old making his debut in that 1992 film?

To hear him talk about his first acting role, listen to him straight talk about it on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen yesterday.


Katie Couric now denies that Matt Lauer pinched her butt
May 2nd, 2018 under Andy Cohen, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2012, Katie Couric was on Watch What Happens Live and she told Andy Cohen that Matt Lauer used to pinch her butt. Since then, the disgraced anchor has been accused of sexual misconduct by several employees and was fired from his job. When that news broke, people found that old quote from Couric and assumed it was true.

Yesterday when she was on the Bravo show, she said that it was a joke. She also says that she regrets making that joke. Do you think she was telling the truth then or now?


Is Milo Ventimiglia afraid of Crock pots?
April 10th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Ricky Martin, This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

In case you have been hiding under a rock, then you might not have known that a Crock-Pot killed Jack on This Is Us. Yesterday, when he was on Watch What Happens Live, an audience member wanted to know, “Since the slow cooker incident, are you brave enough to use one?”

His TV death did not scare him away from slow cooking. He has a slow cooker and a Crock-Pot at home and uses it all the time. He likes to make Lentil soup and vegetables with it. Although, he did not mention the show killer’s dish chili.

Then Andy Cohen wanted to know if he would run from a slow cooker and the actor said he would run towards one. Which exactly what Jack did, but that story did not have a happy ending.

We also learned in that post-show Q&A that Ricky Martin is a member of the mile high club. I can totally see that he bangs, he bangs, someone one in a private plane’s bathroom! Surprisingly, he did not get all flush when he admitted that!
