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 BravoTV.com!) 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.
