CINDY, THE TV’S LEAKING…
My Lets’s Talk Bravo guest this week is none other than the Queen of all things Andy Cohen, Mrs. Cindy! If you are a Bravo fan who follows social media fan pages than you most likely already follow Cindy on Facebook or Twitter, @LoveAndyC. With more than 14k Twitter followers and 75K Facebook likes, Cindy is the perfect example of how to do Social Media right! Funny, snarky, and a tad cunty (insert Erika’s necklace lol), Her tweets are hilarious and always making the top of social media feeds. I had the pleasure of chatting with Cindy and getting the comedic answers to the top 5 questions we want to know. I hope you enjoy, THANKS CINDY! XOXO
#1- HOW DID YOU BECOME A BRAVO-HOLIC?
“I became a Bravo fan after watching season one ‘RHONY.’ I thought the women were ridiculous which got me hooked. After that I started watching RHOC, Mad Fashion, Queer Eye, Rachel Zoe, Sheer Genius…I love classic Bravo.”
#2- FAVORITE REAL HOUSEWIFE AND FRANCHISE?
“My favorite housewife has changed over the years. Currently it’s Countess Luann. I didn’t always like her when she was besties with Jill Zarin, but since JZ was fired Luann has been a rockstar. I think she’s hilarious. She’s a great sport and can let things roll off her back, especially when Bethenny comes for her. Personally, I’d be in tears. And lets not forget her singing, her cabaret, her mugshot, her divorce…I LOVE HER!”
#3- WHAT MADE YOU START THE ANDY COHEN FAN PAGE?
“Years ago in 2011, I created a FB page for called, The Andy Cohen Fan Page. It includes all things Bravo. Seven years later we have over 75,000 likes and followers. I have a friend that currently runs the page. Even though Twitter is where all the action is we still have a lot of people that aren’t interested in getting an account so the Fan Page is a good place for them to get info.
“In November of 2011, I created my Twitter account, which is a fan page account for Andy Cohen. With all the Bravolebs creating Twitter accounts it seemed like the next step. As far as getting followers and growing the account, it came with time. I think the biggest help was that it wasn’t a personal account but a fan page for Andy. That attracts people. I try to tweet Bravo news and things that will interest any Bravo fan. I try to be fair and tweet about all Bravolebs, even the ones I don’t like. I’m not always impartial, but I TRY. I think having fun is also important. Twitter can be an ugly place and lots of times we get caught up in the drama. I try to surround myself with people that like to laugh and have fun. Getting retweets from Andy or a Bravoleb also helps in getting followers.”
#4- YOU’RE THE QUEEN OF BLOCKED BY A BRAVO-LEB, HOWEVER, HOW MANY BRAVO-LEBS FOLLOW YOU, OR DM YOU INSIDE SCOOP?
“If I was the Queen of anything I wouldn’t choose being blocked by Bravolebs but what can you do? I mean hey, I’ll wear it, it’s a fucking crown!! I think I’ve only earned two of my blocks from Scheana and Landon…the rest where being tagged in a nasty tweet. How many Bravolebs follow me? That’s really hard to count. I would guess roughly 60? I’ll get their family members too. The greatest day ever…the day the King of Bravo followed me…Andy Cohen. So cool.”
“Lisa Vanderpump also followed me for 30 seconds so I could brag to everyone she liked me best. She literally said, “You have 30 seconds.” So funny. Do I get DM’s with juicy gossip? You know I do, but if I told you who I’d have to kill you. I think DM’ing with Bravolebs is beneficial for both parties. I get the gossip and scoop and they get a positive tweet. I’m not under the impression we are friends. We use each other. I’d probably call one HW an actual friend, though I like MANY of them.”
#5- LEAST FAVORITE BRAVOLEBRITIES WHO YOU FEEL BRING NOTHING TO THE NETWORK?
“If you follow me you probably know who my least favorites are because I have a hard time refraining from saying it….like a lot! My ‘Ultimate Supreme’ hated…Jill Zarin. I think she’s a nightmare. At some point for me it’s not about good TV but about who the person is and I think she’s awful. She felt like she was running RHONY and even when Bravo said no, she would do things anyway like start that fight with Bethenny. It ended up being her downfall. Off the show she was sabotaging fellow cast mates, Alex McCord and Bethenny, by leaving negative, one star book reviews on Amazon with an alias, Susan Saunders. She’s just too petty and thirsty.”
“Next would be Thomas Ravenel. With all the allegations out about his sexual harassment, I think he should be removed from the Bravo network completely. Lastly, Scheana from Vanderpump Rules. I LOVE to snark on Scheana. But while I can’t stand her, I don’t really want to see her go. She unintentionally adds a lot of great moments.”
