The 53-year-old is part of the hiring and firing process, and his input is valued in the franchise.
During an “Ask Andy” segment on his show, Watch What Happens Live, Andy revealed which ‘Housewife’ he’d bring back if he had the chance.
Phaedra joined the Bravo show during season three, and left after seven years. “Love Phaedra,” said Andy.
When asked which cast members he misses the most, the host explained, “Usually if they’re not on, they’re not on for a reason.” He eventually named Bethenny Frankel and Vicki Gunvalson as his choices.
Vicki is an original castmate from Real Housewives of Orange County (the series which started the franchise). The star was demoted to a ‘Friend’ in 2019 before several other cast members were let go.
Bethenny was on Real Housewives of New York for many seasons, jumping on and off the show.
The host revealed that he hates “maybe one or two” ‘Housewives’ (he refused to name names), but he’s kept them on the franchise because they’re good television.
Andy also told fans how they can get on the show: “Be rich and make best friends with another Housewife.”
