Andy Cohen Demoted From Bravo Executive Vice President Position

Thanks to one of our many knowledgeable posters (who scooped this story a year ago), the following has now been confirmed.

A source tells the NY Daily News what we’ve known for over a year, Andy Cohen no longer holds the title of Executive Vice President for Talent and Development at Bravo TV.

To add insult to injury, Bravo TV has now removed Andy from his huge corner office on the 46th floor overlooking the Manhattan skyline into an office the size of a shoe closet. Wowzer!

An inside source tells the paper:

“Now that he’s (no longer an) executive and reduced to just hired talent, he is lucky to have an office at all.”

A second source describes his new office as:

“A shoe closet” adding “Cohen will have to step outside just to change his mind.”

 

“Andy had a huge office on the 46th floor with big windows and a great view. It was big enough for a desk, large table and sofas where he hung out with his favorite housewives and pretty boys from his shows. He had enough wall space to hang literally hundreds of pictures of himself.”

The irony in this story is, the entire Bravo office, located at 30 Rock, moved into a  LARGER space, from the 46th floor to the 14th floor. Therefore, there was sufficient offices available to accommodate Andy in an equivalent size office, similar to his previous office but instead “the powers that be” stuck him in a broom closet tiny office.

    Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy!!!

    Thanks, Nancy. I am snickering because back when everyone was applauding and congratulating Andy on his new position, I was mocked because I insisted that he had been kicked downstairs.

    • Well done, West. You sure did call it like a lot of other things.

  • Oh how the mighty have fallen!

    • Missy

      Amen!!

      • Hey Missy! 🙂 Happy 4th to you and the family.

    • Marsbars09

      Vagina envy? That’s a first Doc!

      • Describes Andy to a tee!

        • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

          Or did you mean to say, that it describes Andy to a Y.
          Oh oh…okay, I’ve got the barf bag ready for the chaser after the Listerine wash out.

          • Hi TTaA…that too. He’s such a loathsome soul. His comeuppance was long over due. Teresa is next.

          • Marsbars09

            Correction Doc: Apollo is next!
            Don’t forget that epic feature now!

            I’d like to see Porshit get a smack down!
            And Ms Fake Phaedra needs to get a line up of some of her best “clients” to re-arrange her orifice(s) a bit too. Smug arrogant mongrel that she is.

  • twifan2

    Couldn’t happen to a ‘nicer’ guy! 🙂

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Twi! I’ve just posted the same thing!
      GMTA! 🙂

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    Am I the only person that likes Andy here?

    • Why? he’s an evil misogynist who takes pleasure in seeing people destroy their lives.

      • Michael

        Wouldn’t that make all the viewers of those shows “evil misogynist” taking pleasure in seeing people destroy their lives, just like Andy?

        • Summer

          Hi Michael

          Not really they signed a contract which they must fulfill but i do understand where you’re coming from

        • Hi Mike.

          My take on it, is a little different. I look at it from this standpoint…if a viewer likes to watch crime documentaries about murders that doesn’t mean the viewer derives pleasure from the actions of the killer by virtue of watching the program.

          Bravo/Andy choose to display people (especially women) in a negative light. Because some viewers choose to watch “ratchet” TV does not mean the viewer “takes pleasure” in seeing people destroy their lives. Nor is the viewer to blame for the actions of the people they are watching.

          Take for example, the reality show, “The Duggars.” The show centers around family and traditional values. It’s one the highest rated reality shows on TV right now. Those ratings demonstrate “train wreck” tv is not all viewers want to see.

          • Marsbars09

            Well said, Doc!

          • Thanks Marsie. How are u this evening?

          • Marsbars09

            I’m alright. I’m about to spend the last few rays of sunlight by taking a jog walk.

          • That sounds wonderful. Enjoy it.

          • Marsbars09

            Jogging isn’t as fun as partying! Go head on girl! Have fun!

          • Marsbars09

            Where are my manners: how are you dear?

          • I’m well, thanks…going out to a party tomorrow night.

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Yeah, for example…I won’t watch the “Duggerz” if you paid me.
            Somehow I don’t get off on people who procreate like mice.

          • ROFL @ procreate like mice. Strange, eh? I bet if the hubby looks at her while she’s ovulating she gets pregnant.

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Would that be impregnation by flippin’ a coin?

          • Michael

            The reason I think it’s unfair to blame Andy, is because if you look at the first couple of season of #RHOC, you can see that the show was nothing like what it has evolved into today. Andy didn’t do that, it’s the women on the show who brought all the drama. I can’t blame Andy or Bravo for capitalizing on that and giving people what they want to see. If there wasn’t a market for those kind of show, they would die off, instead, there are more and more of them on different channels everywhere.
            If I, for example, was an overweight unhealthy couch potato who enjoyed eating junk food, I can’t blame McDonalds or it’s employees for doing their jobs and having that Big Mac ready for me everytime i go to the drive thru. They can make all the soups & salads, veggi burgers and fruit yogurt cups they want. I may even like some of them too, but if I want a quarter pounder, then that’s what I want. If they don’t want to give me what I want, I’ll drive to Burger King across the street 🙂 Now you went and made me hungry with this discussion, off to McD’s I go 🙂

          • Ahahaha! You made me LOL with your Burger King ending.

            I agree with you totally that Andy can’t make these “ladies” do anything they don’t want to (for a check).

            I do think Andy, however, delights in the shenanigans. At the recent RHOA reunion, he was seen several times reveling in the name calling and antics. That was just one example but there are countless others. Did ya get your Mc’D’s? LOL! 🙂

          • Michael

            No I didn’t bet my Big Mac. On the way downtown I remember that McD’s only serves breaks=fast until 11, thankfully BK is willing to give me what I want starting at 8am 🙂 One problem I do have with the way some of Bravo shows seem to be headed, it the violence creeping in. I think they need to fire anyone on their shows who commits an act of violence immediately, don’t wait until the season has finished filming. Then I think Bravo should, as much as possible, edit that person out of the season that is currently in production. Also, I think Bravo/Andy need to make a statement that that person is no longer in the Bravo family and dissociate them from their brand. If they aren’t seriously going to do something about the violence, it will just grow. Just saying “you don’t condone violence” is about as effective as saying “just say no” to drugs

        • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

          Maybe so, but I know I don’t get the Bucks that guy gets.
          And Bravo pretty much tastes like milk that’s gone off. So I’ve flown that coop.

    • twifan2

      Yep! Uh HuH! Yeah!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Sorry, Vince, you’re alone on this one.

    • Michael

      I like Andy, but to keep an executive position like his, you have to have new fresh idea the viewers want to watch, or at least hire people to come up with new ideas. Andy’s problem was that, the Real Housewives was a huge money maker for Bravo, but instead of creating new concepts, he just kept adding cities to the roster and people got tired of the repetitiveness. I’m starting to see the same thing happen with the Million Dollar Listing franchise. MDLLA was a hit, then came MDLNY and now MDLMia. Different people, different storylines, but basically the same show.

  • twifan2

    Anyone know who has taken his place?

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Twi! I think it’s a woman, but I forgot her name.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I looked her up. The name is Lara Spotts. Has anyone heard of her?

        • Marsbars09

          No, but I hope she’s a step up from Andy.

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi Mars! 🙂
        Thanks for the info!

    • italiano bambino

      I hope someone who really want to save Bravo hi babe sorry I haven’t respond :/

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi Bam! 🙂
        That’s ok, you always ignore me when Tre is around you. I understand. ;D

  • Summer

    I do like Andy just don’t like what direction he made the HW go when then shows started they were fun now there just dark & over scripted in sure his not Vic only one that made the shows so dark but he had a huge say in the direction they’re going maybe that’s why he was denoted maybe the president does read our comments & some of the HW shows rating really has dropped. That’s just my opinion

    • Summer

      Actually i take that back i used to like Andy in the very beginning i don’t like him now he’s a sadistic prick that gets off on women tearing each other apart couldn’t happen 2 a better person my prediction is next step he will be firedjust my opinion again

      Bravo need fresh blood. But TBH i can’t see the HW franchise going on much longer they’re coming to an end

      • WestCoastFeed

        I agree summer. It looks like Andy was given 2 years to wind them all down.

      • Marsbars09

        ITA Summer. Andy definitely has a problem with women interacting harmoniously.
        BTW-I’ve just posted a scathing comment about him.

      • Hi Summer, well said.

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        Yoh, Summer, Hi I’m just another bozo on this bus.
        I understood your second opinion much better than your first.
        Makes sense to me.

  • italiano bambino

    Now bring Miami

    • Ahaha! Hi Bam 🙂

      • italiano bambino

        Hi babe happy Friday tomorrow I turn 32 :/ lol

        • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

          • Thanks babes!!

        • WestCoastFeed

          Happy Birthday, bambino. Mine is Sunday. I haven’t decided how old I’ll be this year yet. Let’s just say that I am roughly 50 years older than you are, give or take.

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Happy Anniversary of your Birth…My liege.

          • italiano bambino

            Hi wcf happy early b’day 🙂 let them be alot more 😉

        • twifan2

          Happy Birthday Bam! :*)
          I couldn’t send you Tre’s birthday wishes to you on Twit. Can’t post gifs. 🙁
          So she sends them here! 😀

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Oh…one of Tre’s finer moments.
            And bless the ingenuity of anyone who lights their uh, you know, in order to achieve that Fire Works display on a singular sensation day in America and also for THE BAMBINO!!
            HAPPY ANNIVERSARY OF YOUR BIRTH, BAM!

  • Marsbars09

    Oh my! How the might have fallen! Ahahahahahahaha! This couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. It sounds like Andy what I have always depicted: an evil, arrogant, woman-hating a-hole. Now I know why Nene disrespected him so badly during part 3 of last season’s reunion. She knew he had no juice and therefore was the “hired” help.
    I don’t believe Andy has the power to fire or hire anybody like he claimed on his one on one interview with Nene. I think he is toast within the TV industry and he’s lucky to have his shoebox of an office.

  • italiano bambino

    Can we get tabatha to do the HE reunions we need to get deep on the BS… no fake questions from the audience.

  • Zoe D.

    I think his admiration for criminals…(Pheadra and Apollo) and hoodrat tramps…(Nene and Porsha)..is what got him that demotion and small office. You have to admit…Andy has been making some poor choices lately. One example is letting Porsha come back after that Kenya attack. Bad move.

    • italiano bambino

      SPECTER! !!

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        Did you really mean to say SPHINCTER! !!!

        • italiano bambino

          Oh my yes hahaha

    • Marsbars09

      Don’t forget Tre Giudice and her criminal enterprise. The network was none too happy about getting pulled into that clusterf*ck.

      • Zoe D.

        Oh…how could I forget the king and queen of illegal living! lol

        • WestCoastFeed

          The increasing level of violence is what I heard led to Andy’s demotion. That lawsuit stemming from the brawl in Punta Cana for starters. Then the brawl with Johnny the Greek at Easter. Both have led to civil lawsuits against Bravo which have not yet been settled.

          • Marsbars09

            That’s a great speculation, WCF. I knew all the violence would get back to Mandy one way or the other.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And BTW, Johnny the Greek is writing a book about his experience dealing with reality tv. He seems to think that he can disguise names enough to get around the non-disclosure papers he signed.

          • italiano bambino

            Lol still the leech doesn’t know when to quit

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Have you tasted blood? Yech!
            Big ole Greek guy must mistake it for whine, uh… I mean wine.

          • Marsbars09

            When will these reality TV wannabes learn that it’s only the luck of the draw that you will become infamous from making a fool of yourself on national TV. SMH.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Let’s just say that he is not very bright.

          • Marsbars09

            A lot of these reality show personalities aren’t very bright.

          • Zoe D.

            I agree…the violence has gotten way out of hand. Andy, seems to glamorize, and encourage it. I know it’s good for ratings…but at one point someone is really going to get hurt. All for the sake of rating. *smh*

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            “Uh…Bravo via J. Springer.”
            That’s what he said to the exec’s. They waved back and gave him the thumbs up. Now it’s “thumbs up…the butt”, ay.
            Teresa and Joe would be standing in line for that bit of foreplay.
            Ewwwwww……..arrrgggh, again…(she said sheepishly, nawt!)

        • Ahahaha! I like YOU!

          • Zoe D.

            Hehehe…;)

        • The king and queen of a criminal syndicate that spanned over 10 years.

    • Uh huh^^^ what she said.

    • Birdie11

      Exactly. He’s a crook loving skeeze.

  • Zoe D.

    Word on Twitter is he’s stepped down and is going to start his own production company. If that’s true…I can only imagine the shows he’s going to produce. Most likely more of the same hes doing now…since it brings in big ratings. But then again…since he;s been rubbing elbows with the big wigs…(no, not Nene’s hair lol)…he might do something totally different. Well, see.

    • Morning Zoe! 🙂

      Happy 4th!!!

      “Stepping down to start his own prod co” = “corporate firing,” that’s how corporate america fires high level executives. A forced resignation through negotiated buyout deal.

  • BaybeK8s

    Happy 4th everybody! I too heard Andy is supposed to be starting his own production company. Does anyone know if Andy is the brains behind the “Ladies of London”? I know he just loves loves loves a good housewife franchise. Also is anyone watching the reruns of the RHONJ?

    • twifan2

      Hi Hi BaybeK8s! 🙂
      I don’t think Andy was the one behind LOL.
      Haven’t watched any of the reruns of RHONJ. Just not that into it much now.
      Happy 4th! 🙂

  • A BIG Birthday Shout Out to my boo….Italiano Bambiano.

    nan/4 • an hour ago

    Totally OT: I was born and raised in Philadelphia….”The Cradle of Liberty” and “The City of Brotherly Love.” I can’t begin to tell you what it’s like to visit Independence Hall, and to know that just a few feet away from where you are standing, The Declaration of Independence was actually signed. That Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, and Benjamin Franklin to name a few, stood in that very room, fought over and eventually signed that document on this very day so many years ago. It was thrilling. Maybe because of being so close to The Liberty Bell, and The Betsy Ross House too, we were instilled with so much pride in what this country went through, how many lives were lost to become a separate and independent union from the British Empire. In my hometown, flags flew proudly on this day. I miss that now. When we moved out west, I noticed that people don’t really feel the patriotism. As I look out my window, I see very few flags, but ours are waving proudly! So, I want to wish you all a very Happy Fourth of July, and hope that everyone will take a moment and think about the importance of this day. To think about what it means to live in this wonderful (but far from perfect) country.

    To the “Ladies of London,” the American ones, why are you trying so hard to be a part of what we fought so hard to be free of? Just sayin’….

    To my wonderful AAtT family I hope that you have a great 4th and wave your flags proudly!

    Be well!

    He will be gone from Bravo completely in less than a year. <–My prediction

    • Love love love the new avi! 🙂

  • Gump’s Mom

    He announced his own show or franchise on some other network a while ago and then eventually he would be leaving Bravo, I believe.

    • Hi Grump’s Mom.

      And if you believe that malarkey I have a bridge for sale. Andy was forced out and starting his own production company was part of the deal. This is how corporate America fires Executives, through structured deals. He did not decide to leave on his own accord.

      • Gump’s Mom

        You’re probably right Dr. Seuss. Me being gullible 😉

        • Hey Gump’s Mom! Hope you’re having a good day.

          Don’t call yourself gullible, you’re just a nice person that looks for the best in a situation. Nothing wrong with that.
