Just two weeks after being slammed by Lil Kim for being ‘messy’ (click here to read that), talk show host Andy Cohen gets a similar branding from actor/singer Tituss Burgess.
Burgess – who recently visited Cohen’s BRAVO talk series, ‘Watch What Happens Live’ (as we reported here) – was on hand to promote his latest musical effort and forthcoming film and stage ventures when things got a little awkward after Andy quizzed him about his relationship with Eddie Murphy.
After a side eye, eye roll, and quick dismissal, the 40-year-old saw his name atop headlines for dissing the ‘WWHL’ host. Now, Burgess is going to Instagram to confirm his distaste for Cohen. Read inside:
Cohen addressed their beef during Monday’s episode of his SiriusXM radio show, ‘Andy Cohen Live.’
“He wasn’t having me,” Cohen said. “What can I tell you? From the jump. I was trying, but no idea. He ran out of there. Did not sign the guest book — he ran out,” Cohen said. “He was like, ‘He knows I was here.’ That’s what he said to the person who asks to sign the guest book. It was something else, alright.”
The host then brought up another moment from the show in which Burgess appeared to snap at Cohen when he brought up the musical adaptation of The Preacher’s Wife he’s been working on.
“I think that was the first moment that he was pissed,” Cohen recalled. “I said, ‘Oh, you wrote the musical for The Preacher’s Wife. And then I said, ‘I didn’t know that, that’s a great idea.’ And he said, ‘You talked about it two other times on this show!’ And I was like, ‘Ugh oh…’ I think that was the first point.”
“I’ve done 1300 episodes. Forgive me for forgetting you wrote the musical about The Preacher’s Wife,” Cohen continued. “By the way, I still think it’s a great idea. I’m still excited to talk about it. I was being supportive. But yes, I had forgotten. I’m sorry that I forgot your upcoming project. I know I shouldn’t have forgotten. I like the guy. I ran into him at a bar in Harlem like, eight months ago, and we had a really nice talk. So I don’t know.”
He concluded by saying:
“He made an entertaining show, I’ll tell you that,” he said. “Sometimes it’s fun to watch the show when the guest hates the host.”
