Bravo's 'Watch What Happens Live': Comedian Jay Mohr to guest host for Andy Cohen -- EXCLUSIVE


Image Credit: Bravo

Yup, the host of Bravo’s well-performing late-night talk show Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen, is taking a break — albeit, for one night only.

On Sunday, July 10, comedian, Saturday Night Live alum, and Real Housewives enthusiast (he blogs about the show for!) Jay Mohr will fill in as guest host on Watch What Happens Live. Mohr has appeared on the show previously, but as a guest.

This marks the first time that Cohen — who will be on vacation out of the country that evening — will not appear on the gabfest. “I know the clubhouse will be in great hands with Jay sitting in my chair,” Cohen tells EW. “I’m tickled that he’s blogging for us — and it’s hilarious — and now am even more excited to see what he’s going to do on our air.”

Mohr couldn’t be more excited about the gig himself. “Watch What Happens Live is like when you build a fort in the woods with your friends as kid,” Mohr says. “Except now there are adults and cocktails.” The episode, shot live from the Bravo Clubhouse in New York City, will feature Kathy and Rich Walkie from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Watch What Happens Live — which averages a healthy 1.6 million viewers — airs at 11 p.m.

    Jay’s blogs are hilarious! I’m sure he’ll be great…

  • Eshia

    A great stand-in, in my opinion. Love it!

  • Kate

    If you happened to be flipping channels, he was quite funny (if sometimes over the audience’s head) as the emcee of the NHL awards.

  • Buddy

    I think I’d start watching this show if anybody but Andy Cohen was hosting. Jay Mohr hosting ensures I’ll watch, but just this episode.

  • Janal

    I won’t be watching!!!! I don’t like him at all!!!!

      Coca Cola is VERY danaging for your body and hetalh. It contains tons of sugar, caffeine, gas, and zinc that is also used for cocaine. It’s very destructive if you take it regularly. Probably more damaging than cigarettes.

  • Jeff

    I love me some Andy Cohen.

  • Jean

    Andy Cohen makes me wish I were a gay man. He is the hotness.

    • Marc

      I would go gay for Andy. He is that hot (and my wife agrees)

  • Joe

    As a gay man, what I most appreciate about Andy is that in spite of working in a glamorous, superficial business, and constantly dealing with the fasion-and-looks-obsessed folk of the Real Housewives franchise, has remained, at least looks-wise, such an approachable, down-to-earth gay man. He has a hairy body, a little paunch, love handles, and unplucked eyebrows…how many gay celebrities do you see that aren’t gym-ed, tanned, tweezed, and waxed beyond recognition? He look like an average dude on any city in the USA, but happens to be gay and that, in my opinion, makes him hot as heck.

    • John

      absolutely perfect comment…my thoughts exactly…love it!

    • Theo

      Regular man in any city USA… but who has an obviously beautiful face and the most hilarious facial expressions. I could watch him host something all day.

      • @Theo

        I wouldn’t say he is “ugly”, but if we go by the standards that both Hollywood and the most “mainstream” segment of the gay community use, he wouldn’t be considered beautiful by any means. He would be ‘cute’. In any case, I concur, he is absolutely, positively delicious. I hope he never becomes a clone.

    • Mel

      Hey – us straight women love him too! I definitely get tired of ALL the waxed, plucked, orange and face filler plumped up people on TV. Give me real any day – especially Andy! And I know I don’t stand a chance in Oz with him.

    • PN

      I think Andy’s normal and just likes to be funny on his Watch What Happens show. I look past the fact that he’s gay, that he interacts very well with his guests and can say and do the silliest stuff to make me laugh, even his funny game show segments.


    Should be fun! I love love love this show and Andy’s subtle shots at his cash cows aka the housewives.

    Maybe he’s going on vacation or something. A lot of those TV people like to do that in the summer months, take a few days off just to do their summer vacation. One of my favorite local news anchors took a whole week off last week and other people filled in. They like to do it on the 4th of July weekend too.

    • hellooooo

      It said right above that he was going on vacation…..

  • Skye

    Watching, but miss Andy. He’s more laid back and fun.

    You have written such a nice post. Keep posting and visit mine link as well. Thanks

  • patricia

    Andy, I have a question for your reunion with housewives of N.J. Why does Treasea feel the need to swear and use profanity with every statement that she makes? I don’t hear any of the other housewives doing that. Could you ask that question during the second half of the reunion on sunday night?
