Last night marked the premiere of Jerry O’Connell’s new manly Bravo talk show formerly known as Real Men Watch Bravo and currently known as Play By Play. In order to, I don’t know, drum up publicity for the new television experiment, Bravo Emperor Andy Cohen was asked to appear as a guest. While there, O’Connell and Cohen did what Bravo employees do best: they started shit.
O’Connell asked Cohen about his feud with Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radziwill that began during last month’s reunion show. (After Cohen accused her of “bashing” costar Bethenny Frankel, Radziwill said, “You’re so full of shit, Andy,” and the world—or at least the part of the world who is obsessed with RHONY—gasped.)
“I thought it was very Trumpian of her,” Cohen said of the remark. “And I was very surprised by that.”
Understandably, this did not sit well with Radziwill, who responded to Cohen’s comparison with a tweet:
“I’m not Trumpian, you’re Trumpian!”
The thing is, there’s no winner when participants in the grand reality show machine start slinging that word at each other. Anyhoo, congrats to Jerry O’Connell for knocking one out of the park on his first night at bat.
