Bravo's Watch What Happens Live! host Andy Cohen loves his network sibling The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but he had a few choice words for the cast of the reality show after they offended him with their casual discussion of gay men.
During his Tuesday-night show, Cohen took a moment to get something off his chest that's been irking him. First, he played a compilation of clips from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in which stars Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna repeatedly referred to their gay friends as "my gays."
"Everyone in town has four or five gays," Richards said during an in-show interview.
"I let my gays down," Rinna said at one point.
Then, in what Cohen deemed a "teachable moment," the openly gay host offered some advice to the housewives.
"Even though some of your friends might be gay, which is great, they are not yours, you do not own them," Cohen said. "We are not cattle, we are not purses. And the next time you think of saying, 'my gays,' replace with 'my blacks' and see how that turns out."
Singer Lance Bass, who was on the show as a guest, shared Cohen's view. "Kyle, you know I love you so much, but when you throw the next gay party, call me, 'cause that looked awful," Bass said. "It was like if they had leashes on them, basically they're just prancing around 'their gays.'"
