Former ‘RHONJ’ Star Says ‘‘No Straight Male Wants His Son To Be Gay’

Jim Marchese, who appeared alongside his wife Amber for one season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey back in 2014, has made headlines over his blatant homophobic language on social media.

He spoke out in defense of comedian Kevin Hart, who backed out of hosting The Oscars due to the backlash he received over his past homophobic statements that include him not wanting his son to be gay.

Jim agreed with Kevin’s previous sentiment on the matter, and let his feelings be known on his Twitter Sunday.

“So true NO STRAIGHT MALE wants his son to be gay,” he tweeted. “A gay son is a curse that takes away your #family traditions #heritage #lgtbiq is a a parents nightmare that destroys families. Ruins holidays like #Christmas #KevinHart we support you! #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder.”

Andy Cohen spoke out about whole ordeal, responding to another Twitter account who said “Thank god you fired them after one season.”

“Thank gd (sic) is right. Sick. Pray for his poor kids,” Andy said. The Watch What Happens Live host also appeared to mock him in two separate tweets, saying “What a great guy!” in one and “This is perfectly on brand for him” in another.

Jim clapped back at Andy for “trolling” his account while bringing up RHONJ in the process. “Creepy that @andy trolls my account. IT is SICK to refuse to have women viciously attack & abuse each so you can be famous & become wealthy...”

Fans online have asked Andy to make Jim the “Jackh**e of the Day” on WWHL as a result of his language.

Remember That Time Ryan Reynolds Talked About His Taint on Live Television?

Ryan Reynolds has long been one of those Hollywood studs that we have thought naughty things about. The Buried star has also teased us in his own type of way over the years by making statements that skew on the gay side like how he wanted to have a taste of all three Chris’ (Hemsworth, Pratt, Evans).

This is all in good fun, of course, as he’s happily married to arguably one of the most beautiful women in the industry Blake Lively, but the super sexy moments he’s given us over the years are ones that we still think about in and outside of the bedroom today.

Take for instance this wonderful #TBT moment where he appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live alongside Olivia Wilde back in 2016. Host Andy Cohen, who has done a remarkable job at getting celebs to talk about their truly intimate & wild moments, did the same with Ryan during the segment known as Plead the Fifth.

Andy’s first question to Ryan, whose smash hit movie Deadpool was released around the time of this interview in 2016, was about what superhero could be a “flaming homosexual”. His response: “Archie”, who isn’t a superhero at all but a classic comic book character.

He then asked the now 41-year-old about a part of his body that he does not care for. “I’ve never seen my perineum,” he replied, “because it’s so far under there”. Perineum is described as the area between the anus and the scrotum, or as many of us in the community commonly refer to it as… the taint.  

Kinky. Watch the clip below:



Andy Cohen is Over 'Top and 'Bottom' Labels and Wants You to Know Why

It's fascinating that talking bobble head Andy Cohen is now speaking out on "top and bottom labels being outdated" when he has said that he's a top in numerous interviews over the past couple of years.

The Watch What Happens Live host discussed his all of a sudden type of views with Attitude Magazine, where the Bravo mainstay appears in their October issue.

"I’ve been thinking about the whole bottom/top thing. There’s a lot of bottom-shaming going on," he said. "It’s a question that I’ve been asked and I’ve answered over the years and I feel the question has become out of date, and the reason why is because what defines sex anyway?"

The 50-year-old goes on to talk about how his definition of sex was just about intimacy and how it can be "achieved in many different ways." 

"So, the connotation about being a top or a bottom, I think for the person/the spectator who from the outside, or who can just be looking to make a generalization, it insinuates ‘Who’s the man and who’s the woman?’ which obviously is outdated."

Do you think that the whole top and bottom thing should be left in the past?

Andy Cohen Opens Up About Dating And Using Gay Apps

Andy Cohen seems to be getting more personal than ever and we don't mind!

In his talk with Attitude Magazine for their October issue, Cohen was asked about his attitudes towards sex. In his response, he shared that he doesn't hide anything when it comes to talking about sex.

“I talk about poppers and about bottoms on my show,” he said during the interview. “That’s the thing, I’m really open about who I am and am unapologetic, so I think there’s something freeing in that.”

Andy Cohen has been out since the 1980s and says he’s gotten used to talking about his sexuality. But according to him, and shared in Queerty, that wasn’t always the case.

“I came out in 1988, at the height of the [AIDS] epidemic,” he says. “I was so scared to have sex. And it’s why I’m alive today, because I was really scared.”

“It was a scary time to be gay, it was a scary time to be sexual… It’s always kind of there in one way or another. It’s not something you can erase from your experience.” 



Now, he says what really scares him is getting out there to date.

“I think it’s harder for other people to sit down with me and have a date because they have preconceived notions,” Andy says.

“If I had never dated myself or I didn’t know me and it was just based on TV, I don’t know what I would think. I have no idea.”

But what about dating apps like Grindr and it’s new Kindr campaign? Well, Cohen says he still uses them… on occasion.

“I have been, kind of on-and-off because it’s challenging,” he explains. “It’s weird. It was probably more uncomplicated hooking up before I became famous.”

“I still hook up,” he adds. “I mean, a guy’s gotta eat!”

Thanks Andy for being open and honest about being just like us when it comes to trying to find fun as well as "the one."

Naughty Boy: Britney Spears Spanks Andy Cohen During Her Concert

Andy Cohen got to experience what many of us would love to do on any given day: get spanked by the one and only Britney Spears

The Watch What Happens Live host joined the pop legend on stage during her tour stop in New York City this week (Radio City Music Hall to be exact) where he became her "victim" of sorts for a short period of time.

He got down on all fours at one point and took it good while Britney did her song "Freakshow" from the 2007 album Blackout. The funniest part about all of this was that even when she saw him, and kind of knew who he was, she still didn't remember his name. "I think you all know who this is … Give it up for him!” she exclaimed.

Britney also threw him some shade after she signed a t-shirt for him and he walked off the stage. "Ow … ears … he’s loud.”

Naturally Andy shared all about the naughty experience on his Instagram Wednesday, captioning it with "“He’s Loud!” - @britneyspears#ItsBritneyBitch (by the way crawling onstage is my new favorite thing in the world and I want to do it every day)."

Andy also discussed the situation in length on his SiriusXM show Radio Andy, where he knew he was going to be on stage ahead of time but didn't want to know anything else.

He also mentioned not taking an edible prior to it happening, because he didn't know how "that would go on stage." Good thinking. 


Andy Cohen Gets Asked Just How BIG it Is

The thirst is real for someone who clearly has a thing for Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen

Instagram, which has slowly become the thirstiest of all social media platforms, has developed a new function in the stories portion of their app that allows people to ask random questions to whomever they follow.

Andy, who has been a king of sorts when it comes to asking celebrities awkward and very uncomfortable questions, had the tables turned on him when he answered a variety of Q's while waiting at an airport on Monday.

Inevitably, the questions were going to get dirty (as they have been for many other people who use Instagram), and one follower dared to ask the question that many have wondered: "Have you measured it?"

For this answer, he didn't have to say a word. His face said it all:

Not sure if that gives a clue about what his package is really like, as he's truthfully giving a response that many celebs usually give him after he asks some jaw-dropping questions (cue the "lady pond" one he asked to Oprah Winfrey many years back).

Enjoy the taste of your medicine, Andy... wink wink. 


Andy Cohen Talks About His Close Relationship With Singer John Mayer

It’s no question that Andy Cohen and John Mayer are close, but is there any romantic or sexual energy between the two?

This is a rumor that’s been going around for years and especially in the past few weeks after Mayer serenaded Cohen for his 50th birthday, and Cohen finally set the record straight.

Talking to CNN, Cohen shares that the two are just good friends.

“Listen, we have a very sweet friendship, and we are together all the time,” Cohen said.

He also added that he’s not offended by the rumors as he gets where they’re coming from.

“I think that I was not surprised because we also have a great love for each other. So, it just seems like the obvious assumption.”

But Cohen didn’t make the situation better after he shared that the two are constantly calling each other and that they had a Facetime conversation at 2 that very morning.

Even worse, when he was asked what kind of man he’s looking for in a partner, he joked, “Someone who is like John Mayer.”

After that, he gave a more serious answer.

“What am I looking for?” Cohen added. “I’m looking for someone strong, independent, smart, who has their own thing going on.”

Bravo's Andy Cohen Celebrates Israel's 20th Anniversary Of Pride In Tel Aviv

Today, a quarter of a million people from around the world gathered in Tel Aviv today to march in the largest ever pride parade in the Middle East where Bravo’s Andy Cohen served as this year’s International Ambassador.

At a press conference for Pride Week, the television personality was effusive about the energy of the people attending the Pride celebrations.

"I live in New York City and this is my first but definitely not my last time in Tel Aviv," Cohen told the media. "I am a proud gay Jewish man and the only gay host in late night TV. I have been struck by how incredible it is, not only to be here, but as a proud gay Jewish man surrounded by my people."

"It's also an amazing thing seeing gay pride flags flying everywhere next to the flag of Israel," he added.

"Celebrating Pride in Tel Aviv is a beautiful celebration of gay rights and visibility in a region where many of the neighbors cannot live as their true selves or be who they were born to be, which makes it all the more special for this massive coming together in support of equality to be taking place in Tel Aviv." 

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the City’s first pride events, and the parade paid tribute to the pioneering activists who played a key-role in promoting LGBT rights and visibility in Israel.

From The Jerusalem Post:

The theme of this year’s event is “the community makes history” as the LGBTQ community celebrates  three historic milestones: 10 years to the founding of the Gay Center in Tel Aviv, 20 years to Tel Aviv’s first Pride and 70 Years of Israeli Independence.

In keeping with the growing number of participants in the parade every year, the Tel Aviv municipality is expecting record numbers this weekend - more than then 200,000 that attended last year.

Andy Cohen Discusses Those John Mayer Dating Rumors

Andy Cohen addressed rumors that he's dating John Mayer during a special episode of Watch What Happens Live this week.

The "Heartbreak Warfare" crooner took the role as host for Andy's 50th birthday celebration on Monday night, where he performed Diana Ross' "It's My House" much to Andy's delight.

They got into some interesting conversation after the performance, where John playfully flirted with Andy by saying "I sent you a video message from a sauna the other day." Andy shot back with "I messaged you back writing, 'I love it when you message me from the sauna'". 

The comedic flirting continued between the two, when prompted John to ask "Do you think people wonder if we’re in a secret relationship? We get a lot of nods from behind the bar," regarding the friends standing behind Andy.

"Project Runway" Is Returning To Bravo In Season 17

After 11 seasons on Lifetime, Project Runway is moving back to Bravo for upcoming season 17. NBC Universal made the announcement Monday at its upfront in New York City. “Project Runway is coming back where it all started; it’s coming home on Bravo,” said the network’s Andy Cohen.

The fashion design competition, hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, was a smash hit from the get-go at Bravo, where its first five seasons aired from 2004-2008. In a shocking move that prompted a string of lawsuits, The Weinstein Co. struck a deal to move it to Lifetime without giving Bravo a chance to match Lifetime’s offer.

This is just the latest installment of the fallout in the wake of The Weinstein Co.’s downfall after co-founder Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a serial sexual predator last year via Pulitzer Prize-winning stories in The New York Times. A+E Television Networks, the parent company of Lifetime, terminated its deal with TWC on Jan. 10, ending their commitment to air any further seasons of the show.

Project Runway was created by Eli Holzman. In 2008, it won a Peabody Award "for using the 'television reality contest' genre to engage, inform, enlighten and entertain.” All seasons thus far were filmed in NYC, with the exception of season 6, filmed in Los Angeles.

The program has been nominated for dozens of Primetime Emmys; Klum and Tim Gunn won for Outstanding Reality Competition Host in 2013. The popularity of Project Runway has also spawned spinoffs like Under the Gunn and Project Runway: Junior, and several international iterations all over the globe.
