Andy Cohen is invested in home life more than ever now that he has son Benjamin to look after, in addition to his dog, Wacha. While showing off his West Village duplex in the pages of Forbes he admitted that his life is far less dramatic than that of any Real Housewife.
His gorgeous residence, which he created by combining three units in his building, has been converted to a cozy family home — Benjamin now occupies what was once the guest room, and all of the furnishings and fabric choices were made with usability in mind, not only for a developing tot, but for the pup, too. “I choose fabrics for my living space, all the couches, etc, that were durable and my dog could lay on,” he told Forbes.
But that doesn’t mean Andy hasn’t admired some the famous cribs of the Housewives. When asked which of the Real Housewives' homes were his favorite, he divulged that top on his list are Bethenny Frankel’s Soho apartment and Hamptons house, along with Luann de Lesseps’ Sag Harbor cottage. And, he added, if he had to choose a West Coast option, he wouldn’t mind living in Teddi Mellencamp’s ultra-modern Los Angeles home.
But Andy has to draw the line somewhere and said he would never be living in a rental, even if they were as posh and palatial as Dorit Kemsley, Shannon Beador, or Tinsley Mortimer’s digs. “I don’t understand the concept of renting at all,” Andy admitted. “It’s just throwing money away. Especially a huge home. I don’t get it.”
