Andy Cohen’s Got the 411…and a Harry Allen Roller Stop


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

I loved seeing the Harry Allen Roller Stop on Watch What Happens Live! last night. I also loved that instead of a three-part reunion, all the Real Housewives of Miami got was an hour-long episode of WWHL, because like all shows based in Miami, it sucked. I call it “The Miami Vice Curse.” No show based there will ever succeed, unless it manages to come up with a cooler theme song than Miami Vices’, which is impossible. But I digress, as usual. Anyway, I’m always noticing the weird changing of accessories in Cohen’s cluttered clubhouse, and this one was right next to his head for the entire episode. My friend Kristen is dying to get her hands on that colorful encyclopedia set; I love his swivel chairs. I wonder if Charo gave him those maracas?

By the way, this winter at a cancer benefit, I put five raffle tickets into a bucket and my friend’s cousin Owen put in one. The prize was tickets to Watch What Happens Live. I lost. I’m still pissed.

Makeup! Get these men some face blotters and powder.

In Honor of The 25th Anniversery of St. Elmo’s Fire…

…May I present Demi Moore’s hilarious, glamorous at the time Georgetown apartment:

JULES: So, what do you think?

KEVIN: Very, uh, subtle…and very pink.

It was decorated by her neighbor Ron:

What’s funny is that it has some touches that remind me of Kelly Wearstler’s current Bravura Modern phase. Very Eighties Miami Vice (what is that thing hanging from the cabinet?!?!):

The piece de resistance is the huge Billy Idol face on the wall, complete with neon light earring. Unfortunately, I could not get a clear shot of this, but you get the idea:

What was most baffling was this clown that remained after Jules’ creditors came an cleaned her out. Apparently the repo men were scared of clowns:

Going back to the beginning of the movie, I can see this thing SAT ON HER BED! Really? Look closely at this bad picture from my tv:

It’s funny, this was really the only set that seemed ridiculously dated. The rest of them are as ageless as Rob Lowe’s face. I’ll share them with you in another post, as this one is getting to be way too long!
