Patti LuPone, Watch What Happens LiveBravo

If you don't have anything nice to say, sit next to Andy Cohen!

Perhaps it's the power of live TV at 11 p.m. Maybe it's the booze that visitors are able to enjoy in the Bravo clubhouse. Or could it just be the simple fact that Watch What Happens Live brings out the shade in our favorite celebrities.

On Tuesday night's all-new episode, Broadway legend Patti LuPone was asked to share her honest thoughts on Madonna's role in Evita. Let's just say things got real interesting, real quickly.

"Madonna is a movie killer. She's dead behind the eyes. She cannot act her way out of a paper bag," Patti proclaimed. "She should not be in film or on stage. She's a wonderful performer for what she does, but she's not an actress. Bing!"

The moment got us thinking of all the other guests who have thrown a healthy dose of shade at fellow celebrities.


Naomi Campbell

The supermodel appeared on Watch What Happens Live in September 2018 and she had a lot to say...or rather, a lot to comment on. After a viewer called in to ask her what she thought about Kendall Jenner being the highest-paid model, even though she'd never do 30 runways shows in one season, Naomi Campbell simply said, "Next question!"

Later in the interview, the show's host, Andy Cohen, asked her if she attended the Harper's Bazaar ICONS party that took place during New York Fashion Week—where Cardi B  threw her shoe at Nicki Minaj—and her answer was very shady. "No. It was called the ICON party, but there were no icons there," Campbell said. "I'm going to say it, because I told it to Carine Roitfeld to her face, so I don't think it's something I can't say."

Billy Porter

In June 2018, the Pose star spilled the tea when asked by a viewer what the vibe was like following Mariah Carey's 2014 Rockefeller Center tree lighting performance debacle. At first he laughed and then said, "It was pandemonium all day." In case you forgot, Carey had a bit of a vocal issue when singing that night, but according to Billy Porter everyone else who was performing saw it coming. "Let me just say, it didn't look cute from the beginning. So, it was not a surprise to those of us who had been there all day," Porter explained.

Charlie Sheen

The Two and a Half Men star quickly proved he has yet to mend fences with Rihanna during his unforgettable appearance. "Oh, that bitch," he said. ""No, she abandoned common courtesy and common sense." 

NeNe Leakes

Whether she's calling out her former Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars or the ladies of The View, this Bravo star always keeps it real. After all, not everybody gets the whole show to themselves when they appear. Bloop! 

50 Cent

During a game of Plead the Fifth, the businessman was asked to name the most overrated rapper. "Overrated? I mean, Jay Z," he shared without any hesitation. "He would say he was overrated. Rather be overrated than underpaid."

Vivica A. Fox

Who needs some tea? 50 Cent and Soulja Boy weren't exactly pleased when the Empire star insinuated that the two may have become romantic. A nasty social media feud followed before everyone forgave and moved on. 

Julie Chen

When The Talk co-host stopped by the Bravo clubhouse, she couldn't help but share her thoughts on The View. "I do think Barbara Walters is probably like, 'This amazing show I created is now just kind of withering away with a revolving door of hosts that people can't keep straight,'" she said. "I mean, I should know all the names of the hosts, and I don't, because it changes so often."


Mariah Carey

Shady or just honest?! During one appearance on the show, the "Obsessed" singer said she didn't know Ariana Grande or Demi Lovato. "I listen to hip-hop more than I listen to pop music," she claimed. 

Kate Walsh

During a game of Shady Shonda Anaconda, the Grey's Anatomy star tried to play nice during a tough round of questions. When asked to name the moment her ABC show jumped the shark, Kate looked back on "the bomb episode" in season two. "But that's the one that made it everything, that made Grey's Anatomy," she explained. "I'd say she jumped that shark, but then we rode it all the way to the top." 

Patti LuPone

When Andy Cohen asked the Broadway legend to share her thoughts on Madonna's performance in Evita, Patti didn't hold back. "She should not be in film or on stage, Patti proclaimed. "She's a wonderful performer for what she does, but she's not an actress. Bing!"

Sure, some are a lot more shady than others. Ultimately, many of these comments got the Internet buzzing with excitement. 

It also helped the late-night host continue his popular show that just received a summer test run in syndication. Mazel, Andy! 

Watch What Happens Live airs Sunday-Thursdays at 11 p.m. only on Bravo.
