Andy Cohen, Julie Chen Reminisce About Interning At CBS (VIDEO)
Andy Cohen brought the ladies of "The Talk" (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) a plate of bagels on Tuesday morning to welcome them to their second day of shooting in New York. As they noshed on the goods, Julie Chen and Andy reminisced about their days as college interns for CBS, and Cohen discussed the expansion of his Bravo late night show "Watch What Happens Live" into a five-night-per-week offering.
Cohen joked about how much Chen had matured since their intern days. "She was a little bit of a wallflower," Cohen recalled, "and I barely remember her because I was the star intern. And then she blew up into this glamor bomb and she's like, the Chenbot all of a sudden." Cohen didn't mention that the "Big Brother" and "Talk" host is also now married to the CEO of the network, Les Moonves.
Aisha Tyler then congratulated on Andy on expanding his breezy Bravo late night show, "Watch What Happens Live," from two nights per week to five. "One of the things I love about this show," Cohen said of "The Talk," "is that it's live and it's spontaneous and anything can happen and that's my vibe, too." Cohen was sure to mention the one advantage "Watch What Happens" has over "The Talk," however. "We have cocktails on our show," he bragged.
