On Sunday, August 4, Andy, 51, told AOL Lifestyle that “there are a few people” who are not welcome back for another shot ski. “And you would be surprised, there are a few people who we have deemed ‘not worth the trouble.’ Like, you can’t talk about this and you can’t ask about that. Or there are a couple people who have been on the show that we deem too annoying to come back,” he confessed.
Although Andy wouldn’t disclose his blacklist, he did say that none of the ‘Bravolebrities’ were deemed “too annoying” for his couch. The TV personality did reveal to E! News back in April 2018 that Amber Rose was on his list of worst interviews, ever. “She didn’t want to answer any of my shady questions,” he told E!. “She turned to me, she goes, ‘Am I a horrible guest?’ I go, ‘you are in the running for one of the worst guests we’ve ever had.’”
Just recently, the Real Housewives mastermind had an on-screen tiff with one of his guests, Tituss Burgess, over his question concerning Eddie Murphy. The two actors worked together on Dolemite Is My Name. “Did you get to chat with him at all?” Andy asked of the Nutty Professor star, 58. “I just wonder if you got close at all, ‘cause he was very problematic for the gays at one point when I was coming up.”
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star, 40, shot back, “Oh, I see, he wasn’t problematic for Tituss,” he said. “And, uh, we had a wonderful time … Any troubles he may have had with gay people, I guess they’re gone because he loved me.”
Burgess later explained his reaction on Instagram writing, “She can be a messy queen!” he wrote of the Bravo host. “Yes, I said it! Don’t care he knows either! He should remember his talk show isn’t an episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta! It’s a place where artists come to talk about art and have a little fun. NOT a place to rehash old rumors or bring a star negative press.”
The next day, the Missouri native spoke about the tension on his Sirius XM radio show, Andy Cohen Live.“He wasn’t having me,” he confessed. “What can I tell you? From the jump. I was trying, but no idea.”
Andy revealed that after the super cringy interview, “He ran out of there. Did not sign the guest book — he ran out,” he said. “He was like, ‘He knows I was here.’ That’s what he said to the person who asks to sign the guest book. It was something else, alright.”
Guess you can add Tituss to your black book, Andy!
