Bravo's Andy Cohen talks with The Hollywood Reporter about how he wrangles the housewives for his various reality shows, talking specifically about the physicality of tonight's NJ Housewives Reunion:
"If there would ever be a situation where someone was in jeopardy of physical harm, production would ensure that it didn't get to that level. We don't want anyone to feel threatened. On [tonight's] reunion episode, there is a moment where I'm actually concerned. We've had two situations where someone has gotten out of their seat in a threatening way. And in this case, I thought, 'OK, I have to intervene.' And just watch what happens when I try to get between Teresa and Danielle…The New Jersey reunion is the best one we've done. It's the icing on the cake of two intense seasons. The last 10 minutes of Part 2 is totally under wraps, but it's the party that will really have people talking — even beyond me being thrown around like a rag doll by ['RHNJ' star] Teresa [Giudice]. I get a first-hand account of how strong she is…She did [throw me down]! The tweets I'm getting are hilarious. People are saying, 'How could you let her push you?' and 'Andy, are you hurt?' I should have gotten hazard pay for this one."
