"It was just bad. It was just awful. It was horrible. A public school chorus singing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’ I literally — if I wasn’t going to go out to some parties I would have slit ‘em right then. It was the worst. I was looking for a knife to stick in my eyes, it was so terrible." - Andy Cohen, Senior Vice President of Original Programming at Bravo, on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," talking about the kids from PS 22, who closed out Sunday's Oscars. That's right; the man responsible for The Real Housewives thinks a group of children singing is horrible. That's rich, Andrew. Granted, the kids were lip-synching, which was pretty lame, but certainly that's no reason to shame them on national television. Of course, shame is clearly not in Andy's repertoire of emotions. Not only is ACo clearly against all that is decent in the world, he is also terribly uncreative, as we've already heard him threaten to stick knives in his eyes -- last time in response to Heidi Montag Pratt's comment that she wanted to join "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Hey, Andy, you are responsible for the single biggest crapfest franchise on TV today, so maybe you ought to zip it. Or at the very least, stop teasing us and just stab yourself. Really.
