Bravo’s Andy Cohen talks more reality shows in DC

When Andy Cohen was in Washington on Friday, he had nothing but love for everything going on around him.

 Cohen, the mastermind behind many of Bravo’s TV shows, such as “Top Chef” and “The Real Housewives” series, was in town for The Front Row fashion show at Bethesda Row and to sign his new book, Most Talkative: Stories From the Front Lines of Pop Culture.

“I love D.C.,” he said. “The monuments are gorgeous; I’m obsessed with it.”

Although “The Real Housewives of D.C.” suffered low ratings and got the ax after its first season, Cohen, 43, said he wouldn’t be opposed to setting another show in the District.

But pressed if there’s any chance of political spouses getting their shot on the small screen — say, in a “Real Housewives of Congress” spinoff — Cohen replied, “Probably not that. I’d like to, but I don’t think they would do it.”

The “Watch What Happens Live” host was thrilled to see CNN’s Wolf Blitzer show up at the VIP reception. The two gabbed about their respective shows, then snagged front-row seats next to each other to catch the models strut their stuff.

As for the fashion?

“I loved it,” Cohen said after the fashionistas rocked the runway. “I loved the shirtless part too,” he mentioned, referring to the male models who had appeared in only swimsuit bottoms for a few looks.

Cohen, who is openly gay, also expressed his happiness about President Obama’s recently declared support of same-sex marriage.

“I love it, so excited,” he said. “I feel like a human being.”
