If Bravo's master of ceremonies, Andy Cohen, were a cocktail, the recipe would go something like this: Mix one part executive (he's the senior VP of original programming and development) with one part on-air talent (since last July, he's hosted Watch What Happens Live, a talk show/post-party hybrid that's airing four episodes this week). Add a generous splash of superfan — Cohen is passionate about the world of so-called "Bravolebrities" to the point of zealotry — shake, and voilà...a bracing, thoroughly meta elixir that simultaneously controls your air waves while appearing on them. TV Guide Magazine sat down with Cohen at NYC watering hole Bedlam for a couple rounds of Maker's Mark-and-ginger-ales to find out what makes him tick...

Has Sesame Street become more gay-friendly?
In recent months, the long-running children's program has seen openly gay stars Wanda Sykes and Neil Patrick Harris on the show, spoofed the gay-friendly True Blood, and featured a will.i.am performance of "What I Am," a tune about accepting who you really are, which triggered Internet speculation about its message.

That followed a June 11 tweet from Bert — who, along with roommate Ernie, has long been suspected by fans to be gay — that read: "Ever notice how similar my hair is to Mr. T's? The only difference ...

The twins have arrived!

The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Perez Hilton, who built his name on insulting celebrities and even trying to out some of them, said he will change the direction of his website to raise awareness about teen suicides and gay bullying.
In an appearance on Wednesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show and in an online video, the celebrity blogger (né Mario Lavandeira), said he no longer wants to be seen as a hypocrite and a bully, as he continues his campaign to stop gay teen bullying.

When he's not hosting Let's Make a Deal during the day, the ever-versatile Wayne Brady is getting used to being a primetime guest star. After his recent return engagement to CBS' How I Met Your Mother, Brady tells TV Guide Magazine he's been told to expect to be called back again this season, and he really wants to follow in his TV brother Neil Patrick Harris' footsteps as a guest star on Fox's Glee.
There's a manic energy on the set of Glee. It's one week until the show's second season premiere, and the cast and crew have little time to think about how the heavily hyped return will fare.
In the choir room, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera are power-stomping and rump-shaking through another run of Tina Turner's "River Deep, Mountain High."
How I Met Your Mother
Barney Stinson is never shy about using superlatives on How I Met Your Mother, but the man who writes those lines, creator/executive producer Carter Bays, exercises greater restraint.
Except when describing the upcoming sixth season.

"Honestly, I never say stuff like this, but I think this is will be our best season yet," Bays tells TVGuide.com. "I'm going to call my shot and say that. At the end of last season, I think we were all feeling really old, and there's been kind of a rejuvenation around here. I think a lot of it has to do with the stories of the season."

When are Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka having twins? "Whenever they choose to come out," Harris joked to TV Guide Network's Chris Harrison. "I think it's up to them really. I'm guessing fall."

Harrison, also the father of two, gives one great piece of advice to the How I Met Your Mother star: Sleep now! "Oh, is that how it works? I thought it was the other way around," jokes Harris. "I thought since they go to bed at 7, you can just hang out and sleep all night."
Check out the video below, where Harris also gushes about Glee co-star Matthew Morrison:
The 2010 Emmys are now in the books, but one of the night's biggest winners was host Jimmy Fallon, whose opening Glee spoof — complete with a Springsteen impression and tons of star power — kicked off the night.
