Author James Frey Says Oprah Winfrey's 'Smell Of Awesomeness' Instantly Fills A Room On 'Watch What Happens: Live' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Author James Frey joined "Jersey Shore" cast-member Jennifer "JWoww" Farley in one of Andy Cohen's usual odd couple mash-ups on "Watch What Happens: Live" (Sun.-Thu., 11 p.m. ET on Bravo). As was probably inevitable with the infamous author, Frey was asked about his appearance on Oprah Winfrey's talk show in January of 2006.

At the time, Frey was reeling from accusations that his book "A Million Little Pieces" was riddled with inaccuracies and outright embellishments, despite being billed and sold as a memoir. Winfrey had made it one of her book club's selections and felt personally betrayed. It was a brutal and uncomfortable interview, during which Frey admitted he'd misrepresented the veracity of his work.

But what he talked about on "WWHL" was the smell of the one-time "Queen of Daytime." Frey said the room smells different from the moment she walks in. "Just like the smell of awesomeness," he said. Cohen added "money" to that description, which Frey had to agree with.

"Watch What Happens: Live" airs Sunday through Thursday nights at 11 p.m. ET on Bravo.
