Bravo Host Andy Cohen Wants To Distance Himself From 'The Real Housewives'

Thu, May 10, 2012 12:37pm EST by 7 Comments

Andy Cohen is sick of the petty drama brought on by The Real Housewives and wants to cut them out of his life.

Bravo’s Andy Cohen is tired of being the referee in The Real Housewives cat-fights! And who could blame him?!

Even though the franchise has made Andy a household name, the Watch What Happens Live host is ready to leave the drama behind and be taken seriously as a talk-show host.

“Andy has been trying to distance himself from ‘Housewives'” a source tells the Daily News.

With the exception of former RHONY Bethenny Frankel, Andy finds the other cast members too déclassé to run in his high-powered social scene.

“He wants to have his fancy celebrity friends and the girls don’t fit,” the source reveals.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper threw a swanky soiree to celebrate the release of Andy’s memoir, Most Talkative: Stores From the Front Lines of Pop Culture, on May 5 — but aside from Bethenny, none of the Housewives made the guest list.

Instead, Andy celebrated his book’s publication at Anderson’s converted west village firehouse with other established TV personalities, including Jimmy Fallon, Kelly Ripa and Gayle King.

Though Andy still depends on the Bravo socialites to boast his ratings, the source reveals that he “ultimately wants to compete with Chelsea Handler and Jimmy Fallon.”

A rep from the network denies that Andy wants to separate himself from the Housewives, adding, “Bravo is throwing a party for Andy [on May 14] and every Bravolebrity is invited.”

Do YOU think Andy is warranted for wanting to distance himself from The Real Housewives?

OMG it’s a franchise making way too much money==he would not make a good talk show host==too much of a goofy little kid personna=I think Bravo should edit out kids more and not ue them in scenes where there is material that is unhealthy==might as well film at Von’s on any given day with supposed grown ups behaving badly==lol
