Do not come for this new papa! Real Housewives franchise executive producer Andy Cohen just welcomed his first child — a baby boy named Benjamin Allen — via a surrogate on February 4, and he already got his first taste of what it’s like to deal with the parenting police on social media. The Watch What Happens Live host took to his Instagram Story on Friday, February 15 to share a super cute, super funny series of videos of his dog Wacha — only to be ripped apart by the daddy shamers. But of course, the king of shade quickly clapped back.
“Did you just eat my son’s stuffed Torah that the Rabbi gave him, Wacha? And now you’re exhausted? That was my son’s Torah!” the 50-year-old said with a laugh, publicly shaming his pup on IG. “Did you wanna explain to my son what you did? And what do I tell the Rabbi, Wacha?”
Andy’s dog made an adorable face as he was being pretend-scolded on Instagram, and it should’ve just been a super cute moment for the new dad — but he then returned to his Instagram Story with a series of selfie videos explaining that he got a lot of backlash.
“Okay, flooded with DMs from people saying I’ve got a big problem on my hands, Wacha’s jealous of my son — here’s what. Wacha didn’t know that the Torah toy — we’re talking about a Torah toy — belonged to the baby. He just had his eye on this purple f–king toy and he wanted to rip it apart. It’s not that deep, stand down. Everything’s fine in the West Village.”
Andy then posted another selfie video featuring Wacha, and he opened up to his dog about his first-ever dad shaming experience. “Hey, I’ve been a dad for 12 days, people are judgy as f–k, we gotta be careful,” Andy told Wacha as Wacha tried to lick his face. “Sometimes a Torah toy is just a Torah toy, everybody!”
