When you have a live television show, there's no delay or filter to edit out the gaffes, which can make for exciting television. It can also make for some pretty embarrassing moments, as one caller experienced when calling in to "Watch What Happens: Live' (Weeknights, 11 p.m. EST on Bravo).

Yvette Nicole Brown and Sherri Shepherd were guests on the show, and according to Shepherd the two women get mixed up for one another all the time, as well as a few other African-American actresses.

This caller mistook Brown for another in that group, saying, "My question is for Yvette. ...What was it like working on the movie 'The Help'?'"

Brown took it in stride with a laugh, responding, "You know, it was great to watch 'The Help,' because I wasn't in it." The caller was mistaking her for recent Golden Globe winner Octavia Spencer in a move so embarrassing, the caller hung up after making it -- or maybe Andy Cohen hung up on them in an act of mercy.

Brown and Shepherd went on to detail an elite group of women who all seem to get mistaken for one another, including the two of them, Ms. Spencer and Loni Love, among others.

You never know what's going to happen on "Watch What Happens: Live," weeknights at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
