How did Patti LaBelle get her stage name?
December 7th, 2017 under Andy Cohen. [ Comments: none ]

Patti LaBelle was born Patricia Holt, but we do not know her as that. Yesterday, when she was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller wanted to know how she got her name.

She told the caller, “I had a manager back in the day who was a car dealer. I went to his place, we had the studio there and he called me Patti LaBelle. Which means beautiful, you know la belle, but he thought I was ugly. It’s a whole long story.” The she added, “But my ugly was green!”

I do not know who her manager was looking at because I think she is as beautiful as her voice. Look at her, she is 73 years old and she looks her age. A true belle!


Fantasia didn’t even know who the new American Idol judges are

As we know American Idol is coming back next year and they finally hired Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to join Katy Perry at the judges’ table. Turns out here was one person who did not know that and that was the third season winner.

Yesterday, when Fantasia was on Watch What Happens Live on Bravo, a caller wanted to know what she thinks of the new Idol and if they asked her to be a judge. She says they did not call her. Then she admitted it is too soon, but she likes that they are “opening doors” for singers.

Then she had some advice for the show, she said, “You have to bring in good judges.” Then she explained why, “When I was on Idol, we had people who truly respected music, was passionate about it. Don’t just bring up people who are good for the look. Bring in people who are going to give good advice, encourage people and tell them what they need to know about this industry.”

Then when Andy Cohen asked her what she thought about the new judges, she did not know who they are. Then when he named Lionel Richie, she seemed OK with it. When he said Katy Perry’s name, you could see by her face she did not approve. Finally, when he remembered Luke Bryan’s name, her facial expression did not change. Does that mean she does not approve? She said it would it be good, but she did not say they would be good.

You know what, she is right it is too soon and you need good judges. Once Idol was more about named judges than the people who knew the industry and gave good advice like Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul, it quickly went down hill. As soon as they brought on Ellen DeGeneres, the show never had a successful Idol who put out hit records. Therefore, this year, will most likely be another of year forgetting who won right after they win.


What is the best gift that Oprah Winfrey ever gave Gayle King?
November 29th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, Oprah Winfrey. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday, when Gayle King was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller wanted to know what is the best gift that her BFF Oprah Winfrey ever gave her. Let me tell you after she revealed what it is, I want Oprah Winfrey as my friend forever.

You see, after the CBS news anchor had her second child 11 months after her first one, Lady O got her a full-time nanny. When you get an amazing gift like that, you promise to give her your third child or anything else she wants. Right? Because that is the best gift any new mom can get. Better than a Diaper Genie or a Breast Pump.

Why didn’t King just get that for herself? Because back then she did not have the money she has now. Again, what an amazing friend Oprah is. Forget being in the Taylor Swift squad, I want to be in this one.


Imagine John Lithgow as Fraiser Crane?

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.
