Bravo’s late-night talk show “Watch What Happens Live” is getting a makeover in the new year.
The freewheeling chatfest hosted by Andy Cohen will move to a significantly larger studio starting Jan. 3. In a nod to the host’s longevity, the half-hour show’s official title will be changed to “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
The new set, which will remain at the show’s existing West Village studio facility, will retain the “clubhouse” look and feel that has been Cohen’s signature since the program began in 2009 as a weekly series focused on the antics of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” personalities. “Wwhl” quickly expanded to a twice-weekly format and then to a nightly Sunday-Thursday schedule in 2012.
“Our new clubhouse is the perfect upgrade for us because it won’t lose any of the intimacy or lunacy provided by our current home,” said Cohen, who is also an exec producer. “We »

The Watch What Happens Live! host sat down with Ripa as a guest host on Friday's Live!, where he revealed that he was recently diagnosed with melanoma, and said that the skin cancer was discovered after Ripa gave him some good advice.

The talk show host admitted that he was hesitant to go to a doctor at first, thinking the dot was nothing, but said that Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, continued to pressure him into getting it checked out -- which may have saved his life.

Minnie Driver may have shined in the 1997 film “Good Will Hunting,” but on Wednesday’s “Watch What Happens: Live,” the actress told Andy Cohen that she almost didn’t get the role because a producer thought she wasn’t “hot enough.”
Driver was asked what the rudest thing anyone in the industry had ever said to her (without naming names).
“The producer did not think I was hot enough to be in that film and did not want me in the film,” Driver said.
The actress, who now stars in the ABC sitcom “Speechless,” then went on to credit Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, as well as director Gus Van Sant, who advocated for her casting. She went on to receive an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress.

Out doing promotional rounds for her new rom-com "How to be Single," the actress appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen and was asked if her 'Shades' co-star Jamie Dornan should show more flesh in the upcoming sequel "Fifty Shades Darker".

The Sam Taylor-Johnson directed first film, which racked up a whopping $570 million worldwide, played things surprisingly safe with the nudity - showing only breasts, bums and incredibly brief flashes of pubic hair.
