Andy Cohen Went On Meghan Markle’s Podcast And She Told Him She Stopped Watching “Real Housewives” Cuz Her Real Life Was Dramatic Enough

November 29, 2022 / Posted by:

Andy Cohen was a guest on the season finale of Meghan Markle’s podcast Archetypes. Lemme guess. The archetype du jour was: “Messy Bitches Who Allegedly Offered Kathy Griffin Coke”? Sadly, no. The episode was actually about “Man-ifesting a Cultural Shift” (SNORE), and it also featured Trevor Noah and Judd Apatow. Up until now, the guests on Archetypes have all been women. But, based on a suggestion from Prince Harry, Meghan decided to include some male guests to “broaden the conversation” about female stereotypes. Hey, if there’s one guy who’s built his entire career off of female stereotypes, it’s Andy Fuckin’ Cohen!

InStyle reports that Meghan told Andy she used to be a “huge fan” of The Real Housewives franchise. She told Andy she’d met him twice before, but he didn’t remember:

“I met you before. You’ll never remember it … I met you twice. The first one is when Suits wasn’t even on, yet. And then when we had maybe season two or three, we were in New York.”

Meghan says she even tried to get on Andy’s late night talk show Watch What Happens Live, but his people weren’t interested:

“I was so eager to be on your show because I was such a Housewives fan at the time and I just couldn’t get booked Andy,” she said of the missed opportunity, which Cohen joked is “now the biggest blunder in the 13 years of the show.”

In Andy and WWHL’s defense, ya never know which C-list TV actress will hit it big and randomly marry an English prince. 54-year-old Andy said he knew Meghan was once a Housewives fan, but he was “dying to know” if she still watched. Meghan admitted that she quit that shit once her own life hit reality TV-levels of dramatic:

“Well, I will tell you the truth. I stopped watching the Housewives when my life had its own level of drama,” the duchess shared, alluding to her famous conflicts with the royal family. “I get why it was such a huge, huge part of pop culture and when it began because you began with Orange County and I’m from California, at least. It felt remotely like a world that I knew but still felt so foreign.”

Meghan also said she won’t join ever join the cast of Real Housewives. But if Andy Cohen has any sense, he’ll convince Meghan and Prince Harry to sign on to their own Bravo reality show. And the network’s lawyers will include this little tidbit the bottom of their contracts: “You bitches will have zero say in the edit. This ain’t your Netflix docuseries, this is low-down dirty reality trash.” Bravo should also offer the couple an extra $10k every time you talk shit about the Royals and a $1,000,000 bonus if they can convince Prince William, Kate Middleton, King Charles, or Queen Consort Camilla to sign on in recurring roles. Can you imagine? Kate and Meghan throwing competing gala fundraisers on the same night? Harry throwing wine in Charles’ face? William taking cameras along for his hair plug consultation? Sigh. I know it’ll never happen, but a girl can dream…
