Andy Cohen is slamming Howie Mandel over his infamous interview with Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval. The exec accused Howie of taking a side, and he claimed he “didn’t do his homework.”

The interview addressed Tom’s reported affair with co-star Raquel Leviss amid his relationship with then-girlfriend Ariana Madix. This represented Tom’s first full-length interview since news of the scandal broke, and Howie himself was accused of being overly sympathetic.

Speaking on Tuesday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, via Page Six, Andy shaded the comedian for not doing his “homework” before the interview.

He also called the Howie Mandel Does Stuff Podcast host a “jackhole,” and he said he “apparently [didn’t] know what he was getting himself into.”

“Howie, you have to be careful before you take a side,” the exec added. “Bravo fans are very passionate.”

The 54-year-old showed a segment in which Howie didn’t who Tom was discussing.

As the castmate mentioned his kiss with Raquel before Scheana Shay‘s wedding, the comedian asked him: “Who’s Scheana?”

Andy also took aim on Twitter, responding to a viewer who wrote, “We need Howie Mandel on WWHL after that horrific interview to explain [himself].”

Andy replied simply, “Or not.”

Co-star Lala Kent also dissed the interview, calling it “f–king random.”

“What a weird f–king first interview,” said the 32-year-old on Instagram. “Like, the game show host? … The one who fist bumps you because he’s scared of germs? It’s so strange and so off-brand … What an odd choice.”

According to reports, Tom’s interview “blindsided” the producers of RHONJ as the season reunion has not yet aired.

Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays on Bravo.
