Andy Cohen with Brandi Glanville of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Andy Cohen, the iconic gay TV personality who has made Bravo TV a mecca of reality deliciousness, had done something unprecedented. He has migrated his pop culture show Watch What Happens Live to Austin, TX – but only temporarily. He has decided to tape a whole week of shows during SXSW, the popular Interactive, Film and Television Festival. It is something that he is really excited about because they have never taken the show on the road.

“I came last year to [South By Southwest] and did a panel and fell in love with it,” said Cohen while taking a break from his hectic week of shooting schedule. “It felt very copacetic with what we do at Watch What Happens Live. Austin's tagline is 'Keep Austin Weird' and Watch What Happens Live is weird in terms of talk shows!”

His show isn't exactly the most conventional. »
