Was Saturday Night Live’s Watch What Happens Live Sketch Too Funny or Going Too Far?
Maybe we watch too much Bravo (OK, we know we do), but we were absolutely in hysterics over Saturday Night Live’s parody of Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live. We gotta admit, SNL’s depiction of the Bravoafter show was pretty spot-on — if a little overdone.
Still, it’s just comedy, right? Wrong! Some fans weren’t very happy about the portrayal of some of their favorite Bravo characters, including Taran Killian’s flamboyant Andy Cohen and Sofia Vergara as one of the frou-frou, cocktail-slurping Shahs of Sunset ladies.
Some famous fans came to Andy’s defense. Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock From the Sun) tweeted, “@BravoAndy If only the guy playing you had actually thought abt his ‘impression'...I thought it sucked. He dint [sid] say 'sweetie'!” and Mad Fashion’s Chris March wrote, “Wow--that was a brutal spoof on SNL of @BravoAndy on @Bravotv#WWHL ...kind of surprising.”
Cohen, however, tweeted that he was loved it. “OMG the one night I go to bed early I’m lampooned on SNL?! Great job I am flattered! #ImLikeAShark #VeryCute.” To be fair, the main thing the writers seemed to be mocking is how adorable Cohen is. That’s not really his fault...
