Watch: Andy Cohen Reveals "Real Housewives" Reunion Drama

If you want to dish The Real Housewives, there's nobody better than Andy Cohen—although we're sure your mom has pretty interesting takes on what is happening with Kim Richards on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Andy sat down with E! News' Alicia Quarles to play a game of "So True, So False" and spilled the beans on Bethenny Frankel's return to Real Housewives of New York—and why that show is so dear to his heart—Real Housewives of Melbourne, Teresa Giudice and so much more.

"Bethenny's back doing what she does best, which is being a Housewife," Andy told us. "From the moment she comes back, you're like, ‘Oh my god'…[Real Housewives of New York City] is back, it is better than ever. I'm getting goose bumps talking about it."

Bethenny told Andy in their Watch What Happens Live sit down that there was a point in her life when she was ashamed of being on the show. But she no longer feels that way. "She's proud to be part of the show now," he said.

As for Teresa and Real Housewives of New Jersey, Andy said he has not spoken with her since she turned herself in to prison. "I'm kind of checking in through Dina [Manzo] to find out how she's doing and by all accounts she's hanging in there and doing OK and we'll watch what happens with that one."

On the topic of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Andy spilled the beans that there's a "shocking smoking gun" about Lisa Rinna that comes to light during the reunion. Say what?!
