Andy Cohen wants fans to calm down!
Bravo fans are a passionate group, and their enthusiasm about their favorite series is almost comparable to that of die-hard sports fans. As an executive producer, Andy likely appreciates this notion, but he apparently also gets a bit annoyed at times considering he recently blasted fans for their impatience over the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills trailer, which is reportedly dropping very soon.
On a recent Watch What Happens Live episode, a curious fan asked the host when viewers can expect the season 11 RHOBH trailer. According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, though Andy answered the question, he was seemingly irritated judging by his tone.
“Pretty soon,” he responded. “And it’s really great. Everybody’s gonna love it.”
He then went on to complain about the amount of Housewives questions he gets via social media.
“I wake up every morning and people are like, ‘The Beverly Hills trailer today? The Beverly Hills trailer today?” he quipped. “Then we release the trailer and the next day they’ll be like, ‘[The Real Housewives of Potomac] trailer today?’”
“It’s like, there are three Housewives on the air right now,” he continued. “We just dropped [The Real Housewives of New York City] trailer, which everyone was dying for. So give us a chance, people. Let us do our work and the trailers will come out. People get very angry at me. I don’t decide when the trailers come out.”
Andy shouldn’t be surprised that fans seem to hound him because he’s become the face of the network. However, when discussing the hiring and firing process recently, he admitted that he is still very much a part of the process. But he then went on to explain that it’s really a “collective group” effort.
“It’s usually a conversation,” he said on the March 16th episode of WWHL. “At the end of every season, we talk to the women about what they have coming up and whether they want to come back. What they see for the future. Then we also look at the show and say, ‘How do we want to change the show?’”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 is expected to premiere later this spring or summer.
