From Straw Hut Media

Straw media. Oh my God, Hey y'all, thank you for joining us for another episode of genuinely gg I am here with my crazy cookie friend and Nita, who apparently does not know what a bong is. I know what a Bong is. I just thought that there's I think I'm thinking of a hookah, okay, okay, is that makes sense? You're thinking like has, like the two. Yeah, I'm sorry. Okay, all kinds of stuff. Have you ever as you think I am, but have you ever taken a bomb? Rip? I think I did once in college from the Pink Panther. No, I didn't. I thought I did. I didn't know. Any of my friends have the Pink Panther and I watch them do it. Give me your hand, God bless you. I know you haven't smoked bomb before because you just said you hit it from right here. Well, you don't. You would it from here? Yeah, no, you do when you're right. You gotta see you put the weed. Why, we goes here and then you do like this. You, my God, yes, and then I can't like this up you go. No, no, I knew that. I knew that. So No, it's you did not ever take a bomb. WEP, and for the next episode of genuinely gig Anita will be taking bomb rips. Okay, Oh my God, I don't know. My God, so that I just totally like this will crazy that I just did it backwards. I don't know what I was thinking. Sorry, Um, but no, I did see my friends do the Pink Panther in college. The movie no is Huge Pink Panther Loong. It was like up to here and they were like the actual that the call that panther anther or yeah, friends, but you don't know what had upon. That's okay, that's okay. That is as crazy as the next thing I'm about to say, because the word on the street is honey x, MLB player Ben Zobrist Zobras sorry, has filed a lawsuit against his pastor, claiming he had an affair with his wife while they were in marriage counseling. Okay, I want to I want to understand that. So baseball player, guy or whatever, it doesn't matter what he feels he's in. He just, you know, he goes to his pastor with his wife or clearly having some marital issues. So they go to the pastor say, you know, fix it, Jesus fix it, Jesus, and the pastor uses his tools literally to fix it, to fix it or fix her. Maybe she was the issue sheet made me she needed some date. But I'm just I'm saying our are I don't know. I know how nuns you're not allowed to have sex our pastors. That's what I was going to just say. I don't I don't think so. They're married. You can be married and be having sex with your wife. If your pastor right, or is he that? Is that Catholic? I don't I don't know. I don't want to be like insulting. I don't want to responding either. I thought know, like if you're supposed to be, if you're allowed to have sex, if you're a pastor with other married women, for sure that's all. We kind of married women. For sure, you know. I don't know. Think who's is suing God? He's gonna Sue God because the pastors going to say he's doing God's work. WHO's this baseball player Guy Suing? How do you even find out that this was going on? That's another question. She will. It's probably godly men. They came forward and were like I sinned, forgive me, baseball player I have sinned, you know here like a game, like oh well, yeah, doubt that would be fun to have him as a guess that I can ask them questions. Me, fine, the pastor. Yeah, yes, we should definitely get that. Whoa, I mean do you lose your like pastor license? Hot does that? I don't even know what that I we had to do some research on this. Actually, it's fucked up. It is people are coming to you for help. They're coming to you for guidance, for something right, literally, fix it, help me.

I'm coming to you a man of God, you speak for the name of God, and in order to show you know how he helps, he has sex with his wife. Yeah, why are they having separate counseling sessions? I thought it's marriage counseling. Maybe like private sessions. They had to have private sessions, but I'm sure went on like even just beyall like sessions and stuff too, and I'm wondering like if he probably, even if he doesn't like get at I'm sure they're going to make him quit, like retire, or he's gonna or something, or what? I don't think he's gonna yet, or he's just going to have to, because no one's going to accept them. We're look at him the same way. It or going to be like, Oh my God, you've sinned, you've done this whatever. So He's probably definitely out of you know, being the church. But but I really don't. I don't know if if they can be with someone or not. I thought they're not supposed to be in a relationship. Well, I know, like priests, like a good different churches that I've been to, that the the person, the preacher, is married. You know he that's okay. I think that's okay. If your marriage is okay in the name of God and you're only supposed to be sleeping with your wife because house. Are you supposed to have children against right? True, that's true. So with the movie, keeping the faith God, I don't know. But Been Stiller and you say I'm not supposed to take a movie seriously that you with been stiller in it. No, just wondering because I forget. If the guy, because I feel like the priest, he would, he will. He liked the girl and the movie. Who was his name? The Guy from primal fear? Okay, it's a whole other topic. Let's not let's just take this all out this is what would that? This is Inter me Ryan. What's his name? Primal fear. He's one of my favorite actress. I will fear. That's Edward Norton and everything. So Ed Nordon was a priest and I've been stiller was the rabbi and they like the same girl. I would over this, but that's a comedy, sweetheart, you you cannot bring in comedy with an actual woman that's trying to help her marriage, fucking her pastor. And now the husband is suing. I'm just curious of who he's suing. Well, that part it's I mean he pop. Yeah, I want to know. Suing, because the church is going to be like a fall. Yeah, yeah, we know you're not taking the church as many you know what I mean. So I don't that's all kinds of fucked up and I don't know. It's all kinds of all kinds of effect up. Yeah, all kinds of fucked up, but in better news, in the sports world, because that was not a normal situation, in better news and in world history, breaking news. A NFL football player, NFL football. What I say NFL? NFL Means National Football League, right, so NFL, National Football League football. That would just be weird. That's weird. So Nice NFL player, NFL player, and if a player called Nassip he has come out. He is the first actively open gay man playing for the NFL. He is twenty eight years old, he is a hundred levels of very hot and sexy and he's gay. And that, Ladies and gentlemen, is how you make fucking history and that is how you set paths for people and you become something and I just yeah, that's hundred percent car. That is amazing. That is amazing. Like, I hope it doesn't get weird for him. Like you know how guys can be douchebags, but I think in this day and age, I'm not going to pull the whole locker room situation or you know. But then again, we have a lot of, you know, wrong people in this world that that still do have certain views and I don't know, I just what do you think is going to happen for him? Um, didn't he'll get heat for it, I think a little bit. I think. I think he's going to be praised in a lot of ways, because I feel like this is not going to open the doors for a lot more of yeah, the NFL players or...

...any basketball, any any athlete to come out. But I also feel like, and and it's going to go down to like high school and college and different levels too, that maybe kids will be, you know, students will feel more comfortable coming out too. And Yeah, I'm being like treated. So he's really a paved the road and open up the door for a lot of people. So again, more power to Carl but I think he will still I don't think people will be so openly like weird to him, but I still think he will be discriminated a little bit. But because there are some of those guys on the team or athlete, you know, coaches, whatever, that are still going to have like some type of yeah, reaction to that and maybe not be. So yeah, I said, I don't know. I hope to God not I have but but I think like because back in twenty, think back in two thousand and fourteen, another NFL player had come out, something Michaels, like Sam Michaels or something, and right before the draft or during the draft, and then he gotten picked and then he had to, I think, step down own. So that was back in two fourteen. So this is a really big deal. And now this amazing, really huge deal because it is the league. The League is actually accepting this. Yeah, the League is saying we are now fine with this, because it's existed before. It's just never been able to be talked about. And I think we're on a culture now. Again, I don't talk about canceled culture, but we're in a culture now that you can't just get away with mistreating people anymore and people are stepping up for it and people are taking public leaps that they have been so scared to take. They are doing things that are always considered controversial and taboos and they're being more fearless and in their approach of life, and I love that. It's great because it just it brings us to what we want to talk about today with our guest, which is Mr Andy Cohen. I can't believe I'm saying that. Huh, I can't believe you're saying that either. But we want to talk about those leaps, such as him being a gay man and saying I'm going to be a single father, I'm going to get an egg donor, I'm going to give myself a Sara get and I'm going to make myself a child. And I mean we have some similarities. I always don't have the penis. We had to do a few different things, but it is a brilliant situation, so let's go ahead and bring them on. You know her from Shaws of sunset. You know she doesn't hold back. So take your titties again now, that's not how you shook. Amazing, not shaking because it's it's seriously like really tight and of by brace. But Oh it's really tight, or else they would be everywhere, and they don't, and they're not like like yours are like a round and ice whine, more like, but minor gigant like I am. I cannot believe who I'm about to introduce right now. Our guest today has so many accomplishments that I wouldn't even know where to start. He was born in Sant Leuis, Missouri, but then decided to head to Massachusetts, where he graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in broadcast journalism. He began his television career as an intern at CBS News and we're gone to spend another ten years with the network, serving as a producer and senior producer of multiple shows. But it was in two thousand and four that I'd like to think his career was about to take off, as he became the vice president of original programming. A Bravo, and in two thousand and six he helped create a show called the real housewives of Orange County, with nine other cities to soon join the franchise. The real housewives were a massive success. But his most noble success is to date are becoming the first openly gay host of a late night talk show, which he calls watch what happens live, where he showed the world with the definition of fun hosting truly is and his US most other noble success would be having his son, Benjamin, and the route he chose to have him, by using difficult and controversial methods such as using an egg donor and Saraghacy. He is a New York Times best selling author, he's a producer, a host, a great father and he is one person who has always been extremely accommodating to my hearing...

...disability. Please give a genuinely GG welcome to the King of Reality TV, Mr Andy Collin. Genuinely G G G G. How are you good? How are you? That was a great intro. I really appreciate it. Ah, you are. You are really I had such a hard time writing your intro because I kept saying to a need on my he has so much about him that I don't know how I'm supposed to, like keep it. Yeah, how do I condense that? It's good. A little. I am so excited to have you. Thank you so much for being here. I'm very nervous at she hasn't slept and she hasn't something like to night other for years, I know, but it's like it's always it's the other way around, and I'm used to being, you know, in your position. You ask me the questions and to me, I've always looked at you as that Godfather. So it's like there's always this level of respect. So for me to want to, you know, ask you the tough questions, it's just I don't know. You're going to be great and I'm thank you amazing. Oh my gosh, I had, and I don't know if you remember, because it was a long time ago, Anita was on the season, one of shots of sunset and yeah, you're I did a bit of a karate chop to her face. Faith. Yeah, here we are like us days, yes later. I feel like I have known you very personally for a very long time, and not because I've been a part of Shaws and Bravo for ten years now, but because I was watching you and I was watching your shows. You know, way before I was even on Shaws or on TV, I was obsessed with reality TV, like still to this day, I watch every reality show out there. But you have just turned something into something just so colossal and it's been so amazing to because I joined shows in two thousand and ten, so you had the franchise, the house, I was franchise. But to see, ten years, eleven years now, what you turn that into, it's fucking awesome, Mandy. I love that. I'm just I learned a lot from you and and that's why I feel like I'm even more nervous because I just had so many questions to ask you. But let's just start with hows. How's your son been? How's he doing? Ben Is Great, he's adorable and he is two and five months and he's he's great. Yeah, as he started school he was in a tues program that just ended. He was in it from for six from January until June, so that was his first bit of socialization. And it was. I mean, I'm sure you can say the same thing. I mean the pandemic was kind of a blessing in disguise because we got to spend so much time with our kids. Yeah, I agree, we're going to take a quick break, but when we come back. So we put we created an embryo using a sperm and an egg and then we just yeah, and you went the Seregasey way. I was putting it into a different host. Yes, was that a difficult process, because in New York it was still illegal at that time. Correct, correct, which is why I had been in California. I should just turned one hundred April twenty seven. Isn't that Anderson Cooper Son's birthday? April twenty seven? Or is it? Or we this? Yes, it actually is. That's alias birthday. They both have their kids, I think, because I remember seeing you posting for Anderson Son and I was like, Oh my God, that's at the same birthday. Yes, let's do a joint birthday. Sometimes birthdays, although always celebrate in...

...spirit. For sure. That's amazing. So, yeah, we're doing that. The touring process. Right now we're touring schools and everyone keeps saying, oh well, this is the celebrity it's going to are you guys for real? Celebrity, like Little Day cares? How you? Is that like a thing? Crazy, it is crazy. It's so crazy. Oh my gosh, Um, you used just sational, Sarahasey, to have yes, spent and for a lot of people who don't know what that is, is there's traditional and there's justestational. which traditional is that the woman carrying the child is typically the biological mother, I guess you would say. Right. But with re stational, which Andy did and I did. Look. Yeah, so we put we created a an embryo using a sperm and an egg and then we just sweat and you went the seregasy way. I was putting it into a different host. Yes, was that a difficult process, because in New York it was still illegal at that time. Correct. Correct, which is why I had been in California. You know, he was, he was carried and delivered in California and I had a wonderful surroget there who I'm still in touch with, and and and and during that process and after that process, I worked very hard with Governor Cuomo actually, and and a whole team around him to to pass the legalization of surgacy in New York State, which is past now, thanks with great effort to him, and it passed with a bill of rights for surrogates. That is really, really groundbreaking and I think will be very progressive and will be implemented in other states segacy laws. It just gives way more pert actions to surrogates then had been available in other states. Right. I I'm congratulations because I did see that it passed in February in New York and that is an amazing thing. I think it should be people's choice to do that. It's, you know, my body if I want to do that for yeah, so congratulations and I do hope that all the states catch on and it can become a federally legalized my cannabisy. So what, at which point did you decide that I'm okay with being a single dad? You know, I never really I didn't think. I just thought, well, I just thought that I didn't want to wait until I fell in love right. You know, I was like there's some things you can control and there are some things you can't control, and I can't control when I'm going to fall in love, but I can control you know, to the best of my abilities, that I want to begin the process of making this happen, and so I also had the financial means that I could do it on my own, and I think both of those played a big part. I think if I was at a different phase in my life where maybe I couldn't afford it or I needed a partner to help, you know, because I also knew, I did, you know, a budget that I was like, okay, well, I'm going to be able to afford, you know, to have someone around to help me when I'm not around and all that stuff. So it just seemed again like something that I could could, I could control, versus when I fall in love. I'm a finicky cat in terms of love to and you know, I've been in love twice and I hope that lightning strikes again, but you never know, and there you go. Yeah, I agree. It is very expensive, unfortunately,...

...it is, and it's lengthy and it's time consuming and you do have to sort of have that luxury of being able to take that time and make the financial commitments. I know your steps were, you know, probably double then what mine were, because I had to freeze my eggs. Then I hired a company called donor concierge, which I started fishing, you know, everywhere surrounding countries, this whole nation, for my type of sperm that I was looking for, and it's just the weirdest process. So weird doing what maybe Gig wasn't for me. The whole process the hardest thing. It was harder for me doing this than finding a Sorrogan or anything. The hardest thing was choosing the egg for me, and I have to assume choosing the sperm was the hardest for you, because it's arguably the most important decision of our lives. Were choosing who the biological you know, Um, but the givery whatever, and that active writer, Jeneticological, they're everything is defined way. So this is an international you can go international. Well, defends on the companies that you hire and it depends on the neighboring countries that some companies work with. But yeah, you know, it depends on the financial ability that you have to yeah, to do that again. Andy says it's it's literally the most difficult decision you ever make. So I was okay with spending anything that I had at the top of that, because when you fall in love, you people say you create a child out of love, right, or because you're married and it's time to do so. You don't necessarily think of what the child's genetic composition is going to turn out to be like because you're in love and that's all that matters, you know. So having to actually create it, it's like going to that build a bear workshop, but it's like that's your child. Yeah, it was. It was exhausting, it was. It was very, very wanting to take you adam telling you know what. I kept putting the decision aside. I would start to do it, I would start to look and I was like it was, it was. And then, I have to say a friend of mine, a girlfriend of mine who had done it, gave me some really good advice about just really looking at the medical history and then just kind of focusing on that and then figuring out what was important to you and then kind of trying to depersonalize it in a weird way. Right. So that's that. That was very helpful. Yeah, I had very specific criteria, of course, you know, and you do. I did a psyche val with the company so they can understand me as well as understand what I wanted and they would thought would be good mixes as well. But I one of my you know, my what why are you? One of my big things was I wasn't accepting files that didn't have photographs without I'm not asking for you to tell us or anything with the your donor looks like, but was that a criteria for you? Two'se. That you see, you see with the person and you know what the person actually looks like physically. That was one of the things that was tripping me up because it's just such it because you're you're looking at a person, and so that was one of the things that was kind of both a benefit and an obstacle to me, to be honest with you. Yeah, it is, because I saw genetic profiles when it comes to diseases and there about, I know, all the way to the grandparents and great grandparents as uncles, and they were pristine. But then you look at their picture and you're like, well, maybe if they pick up more on my geno. So I get it, but I was lucky to find the perfect one genetically. He's very, very, very handsome, but that's that sort of leads...

...me into my next question. Is I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to do it when Elijah asks me, or because he's watching these cartoons now and he's reading the books now and the words are starting to come out of his mouth and Dad, Dad, Daddy, these were becoming more thy. Ben Is older. So Mama, mommy is a big thing in his cartoons and his books. You know, Jimmy Fallon wrote a book called Mama. I swear Eli goes around the whole House screaming Mamma. So what is that like for been has he referenced anything or anyone is Mommy? We haven't had that conversation and know it's been pretty simple and the good news is we've there are all kinds of families that are around us. I'm my best friend his daughter. He was a single parent when he had his daughter and I know that he told her, you know, that, that families come in all different forms and that he went about this on his own and that it it meant that he had to you know, babies are made with an egg and a sperm and he had this firm and you know so just that he went to extraordinary. She was so wanted. This is what he told her. You know that she was so wanted that. He had to go to extraordinary measures to get her and that's how he you know, he just kind of kept it scientific and and and and the truth, and that is the truth. But we haven't had the conversation and I haven't exactly figured out, you know, what it'll be, but it'll be something along those lines. Yeah, and you you, I saw you left. You made a cart that said. You said you was sure Sen was going to have a head full of hair and that he over exceeded that. Yes, that's adorable. Did you? Were you expecting more or less? What were were you? I don't know. I was like, Oh, I hope he has some hair, and then I was in the delivery room and the and the the doctor turned to me and said, Oh oh, you're going to be very happy. Went over there and saw I was like, Oh my God, Oh my Gosh, oh my gosh. So, is been gonna be able to have contact with his donor or is that going to it's completely anonymous. I think that's a conversation for later. Yeah, I I'm trying to decide that as well. I'm trying to figure out. But if you had contact with that person, none, is completely anonymous. But I have the FUIL and the file has the photo and so much information and to me that's do I hand him the file? When do I hand him the file? If he says mom helped me find him? What I think? You? I think you. I think you let him guide that conversation, you know, because who knows, it could be. It could be he could be twenty and he could finally say I wish you had a picture of my biological you know, and then you could say, well, I dude, you want to see it. You know. So right, I don't know, offer it. So he knows he has access to it when it gets a little bit older than when he's finally ready. If he's ready, then he would come to you. So you think I should make it known that there's access to I think so. And then also, is the agency like if you call them up, you could just be like no, I want access to the father. Can we know that they have enough anonymous and there's so many legal aspects to that that there's instead of really have to find him yourself, right, right, and I did. I turned into private investigator and a couple days before I was about to put the embryo inside of me, and I thought, what if everything in this file is n't a lie and he's...

...a mass killer, murder and he's a psychopath? The way you went and you went and found the guy secretly. I found him. Oh, it's not a secret at it. You had a private investigator do that. I I hadn't private investigator gg do that. Oh, he was right. Wow. And then, but you did not need him. You just kind of Sawn and and I don't ever, and I'm I regret finding him. I regret I found everything, from instagram to businesses, home, every I found everything and I regret it. But I made a promise to myself that I will never again go back in check and I haven't so right because I don't want to. I just wanted the reassurance that the file that I chose to create my child I is going to be safe. You know, that was all I really cared about. Any was he matched up to everything that he said about himself in the file based on his Oh that's good, oh, bruth of fresh air, broth, the fresh air. Oh my God, we're going to take a quick break, but when we come back. So with Chris Jenner having the lie detector test and and confirming that Kim is indeed her favorite child. Who is your current favorite housewife? Oh my God, are you kidding me? So now, Andy, you said that you still keep in touch with the SARAGAD is that something that you're going to keep like a relationship with? I mean, I hope so. I mean she's a very important person in my family and so absolutely, you know. I mean it's it's surrogates. Are they just are angels? I mean they're doing they're they're they're providing something that is an in I mean, I can't even put words around what they're doing, and it's been incredible because it get attached to this child inside. I don't think so. I don't think so. I I think it would have been something I would be able to do only if I didn't have autoimmune disease and it didn't cause so many issues. I would, I would definitely do that. See, I think I like at like so attached. Some people might and if you know that you would, then it's not for you. Don't know, it's not for you, then I tried it. Right, Andy, if you had a preference and having another child were involved, would you would you like to take the same approach with your significant other and have another child or are you done having kids? I think it would be great. You know, I think it would be I think it would be great for everybody. I think it would be great for been most specifically. I just think it would be great for been. You know, have a said like I grew up with a sister. We were really close growing up, and you had a sister growing up and you you know, it's you know, it's nice. It's a family, you know, and especially it's a single dad. I mean so, yeah, it's definitely something that I think about. Yeah, that would be so sweet to have something for Ben. I saw you had a little dog sitting day with Walker. Watch out my God, I thought it was Walker and I thought, you know, yeah, I thought it was. Why I SOA Walco for I was that. It was really it was really sweet. I mean it was like it was like being with an x, you know, who you're still in love with, but you know that you had to break up. You know. Oh, would you? Would you ever consider getting a pop another dog? Yeah, yeah, I would it. There's just one that I knew. You know that the breed was absolutely kid friendly and yes, sure, that's exactly what I did. I was, for men's, pregnant when I got my rottweiler, Jajah, but I did so much research about breeds and knowing her pedigree all the way to her grandparents, like just like my sperm. It helps, and knowing what you're getting. I mean, I hate to compare to a dog, but it really does, because...

...if it's around a baby and I have two cats, it's I can't take that risk. I can't take that risk all. Andy, I would love to see you get a puppy and I am so, so, so grateful for you doing this and letting me get a little bit of taste of who Andy Cohen is. You know what I mean, because I have so many questions when I see you and we're always working and we're doing shah's a sense at a bravo stuff. So it was cool to get you to take a few steps away and answer some of my, you know, personal questions about your life. You bet well. I love seeing your evolution as a mom and I also just want to commend you for doing it on your own. I mean, how did you look just before I go? How did you know that that was the right time for you? I think it was just I realize that I'm not the relationship type and I didn't need to be in love to have something that I know I've always wanted, which was a child. So again, if I get a partner in my life, that would be a plus, but the child was something I needed to have and I got my life together emotionally, psychologically, my health was getting better and I thought, you know what, now I have the money right now to be able to afford this. I'm just gonna do it. I'm just gonna do it. So do you? Do you have other Lebryo? Look at this, I love this. I'm keep going. What is it? Do I want you? You have other embryos? I do? I okay. So I was all happened last season. I was pregnant. I rup shirt it because it yes luke accident. It went into my Philippian tubes. I got both my Philippian tubes removed. Three months later, pregnant, I had five grade like a a embryos because, for people who don't know, your embryos go through like a testing process. If you want, I waited. I grew my embryos the ten days. We tested it for genetics. And I ended up getting five supreme ones. I lost the one, obviously, and then Elijah's the other one. So I have three on ice. Is that weird to say? On I and I? It's bought. Oh my God, yeah, three frozen. But Um, I think I'm okay with having no more kids. I think I'm okay with my son and I. Yeah, my health got worse because of my loss of pregnancy, so I'm dealing with my Ra as if it just started all over again. So I'm okay right now, just enjoying but first offish reasons. I want her to have another one. You need to have one. Andie, do you know any good, nice, successful Jewish men for Anita? Isn't how I'm okay. I'm a Passi Jewish thing at this point. I'll take whatever. I got to think about it. I gotta think about why you think about it. Anita has a game for you. I have a game. We have a gayer. Okay, so it's called for give me, I have sinned. Okay. So, with Chris Jenner having the lie detector test and confirming that Kim is indeed her favorite child, who is your current favorite housewife? Oh my God, are you kidding me? Oh my God, I'm so hang it changes every minute and also that's major HR issue is that is that? Is it? Shit we are? Oh Man, it's a bad idea. Speaking of Chris Jenner, phenomenal, phenomenal interview you did for the hosting of that run. Amazing, by the way. Sorry, we just got in trouble with HR. Okay, so I cannot. Let me. Let me just make sure look at this this one. Well, this one might be an hre issue to why. I okay with with, okay, from all your gifts you have received from your guests on the show, they're not just housewives. Yeah, that's that's everyone. Okay, okay, okay. What is your face you for a gift that you've received us in their clubhouse?...

What's the most prized gift that you've received? The the Shotski from Jimmy Fallen. Yeah, I know you'RE gonna Say Lady Gaga's urine. Yeah, that was amazing. Even N I got a night from gg that. It's still in there. Yeah, yeah, so there's a lot of great stuff. A disco ball from Mariah Carey, Oh Gosh, oh my gosh, we want to start doing that too. Back here a disco Bob. No, I go clubhouse thing, like I gotta start to stop you. I Like I was inspired by your clubhouse. I was like, let's just do it the way Andy does, is cluphouse. I love it, and let's make a game, like Andy makes a game. Yeah, okay, we yeah, we kind of want to be you. You want to be Oh my God, I have like more questions, but should do it? No, no, no, wrap it up, it up. Which one should we do? There's so many good wrap it up. Okay, fine, Andy, Andy, I know you have an amazing station on serious x Sam. I love it. I always tune in. It's called Andy's Kiki Lounge, so I would love it. Everyone can check out and he's Kiki Lounge. Thank you. And Radio, and I have a I have a I have a music channel and a talk channel. I love it. One hundred and one and three hundred and twelve. Thank you. I love your stuff. I love your stuff. You, I've always loved you. Thank you so much for doing this. I appreciate it. I'm still learning from you. I can't eat to see you again on watch what happens live, Brob, coming of your reunion relatively soon to see you the union. And the last thing I wanted to say, sorry to switch gears, is I wanted to send my condolences to you for your friend and you and I so thank you about that. I know that was a bit of a, you know, unfortunate situation. So I'm sorry, appreci thank you so much for doing this. Andy, greats guys, got great to see you. GIG's great spank you. Thank you. You. Next time I see you I'm gonna light this drain. I'm so nervous. You deserve it. You did a great job. Oh my God, more fun questions. Oh my God, I really wanted to ask the Retho one. That would have been fun. Oh, and then the SHAWS. What? We had so many good questions. You are you Anita? You came over here last night. We decided exactly what you were going to ask and for some reason you completely went off script. I did. You were supposed to ask the shaws thing at the end. Yeah, but I didn't ask it because you said that was my next question. No, I didn't. You're like, Oh, I have so many questions. I have no, you only have one question. Love to ask. Had the ARETHA Franklin one. I we only talks about three that were confirmed. Good God, I'm sending here trying to impress Mr Coney. You got me all sorts of fucked up in the game. Girl, do you want to smoke this? No, but that was fucking cool. No, yeah, that was great. He loved, he loved. He listen. Did you see him flip his glasses off when you ask that question? He was like fuck, because he really couldn't answer it. I thought you would. I boy, I hadn't know it would be an HR issue. I hope he's not saying that's a good at is. There's no way, because even if he says that, it doesn't really just say that, because then if there is a difference in that, maybe what if that person gets a different paycheck? are that person gets a different contract? When you we're going to say because, yeah, it's Andy's, you know, favorite. It's different to say one of your children are your favorite, especially when, hello, it's obvious that Kim Kardashian was Chris Jenner's favorite, biggest money maker, exactly until Kylie came along. So now Kylie's actually Chris's favorite. I want a light checkter test done. That was before Kylie was a billionaire.

Kylie was like ten years old at that time, when for sure you're not. Hi Him is a favorite. Yeah, no, no, no, everyone even says Kylie's the favorite. You mean Kim says Kylie's now the favorite. So, yeah, that was not an HR issue. It's in the family, I guess, and he could not give that to us. I know who my favorite of all the housewives are. Who I mean? Well, well, depends if it wait, is it? Is it my favorite from watching them on TV or from my interactions in person, from vote from tables? Sup Belt from TV would have to be Ramona from housewives of New York, because she's just she's just so authentically herself, good or bad, okay, trust me, the woman's got all kinds of bad things about her as well as are good, but she's just so authentically herself and I just respect that. Lee's favorite is the the bitch that just got fired. Kelly. What Fraud Dod what dog? Ah, yes, that one. Okay, I could. I got you. You brought it up, didn't yeah, I could. Oh my gosh. Well, that was great to have Andy On. I was really wanting to know a lot of those questions about his seregacy and egg donor concept, because it's different for different people. You know, he got the egg donor and I what I've heard is it's a hundred times harder to find an egg donor than it is to find a sperm donor. You know, I feel like a bunch of guys in college or I'll just going and you know, Jizzy and tubes because they money was a pop. Yeah, it's a for them. It's not some time as just means nothing. For a woman, it's a bunch of injections, it's taking hermones. I did it. I did EG freezing. It's the same concept. It was not easy. Three needles in the stomach every day. So it's a lot harder and it makes me so much happier to see that people are able to take this route and I actually have this information I want to share. Okay, so, because the seregacy and donor situation is very, very expensive and a lot of families are out there not doing it because of the luxury of doing it the way I did or Andy did, but because they have a medical difficulties conceiving or having children, have poor sperm, poor eggs, cannot create embryos, can't hold embryos. There is a company called baby questcom and they help with fertility grants. Yeah, so that's a really good thing. Yeah, it is. I didn't even know that that existed when I did my process. But yeah, that's really great. But he was like, I don't know, he was like he just seems like such a great father, and he's like yeah, and it's cool and he wants to bring another one into the world. And Yeah, and I agree and I think that's nice to have siblings. It's really important and that's why you're trying to push you to kind of take that out to another one. Having, like a lot of you have such a good relationship with your sister. Yes, you really do have that, and I mean I love my sister and we're fine, you know, but I think that for me, if I were younger, I would maybe consider having a sibling for Elijah, but I think that, I mean I'm about to be forty and having a second one it's not something for me because I think my autoimmune disease is really quicked in full fledge and seeing how how impaired I am because of it and I have to always have a nanny here or what are my parents here to help me? Because if I'm in too much pain and I can't help my own son? So right now it's more of a fear to have a second child. I'm like, Oh my God, how would I even give any part of myself to one of these kids? So I'm going to take a backseat to that. I don't have any Philippian tubes, so I can have as much sex as possible and I won't get pregnant. So I think it's spend...

...well, like three years. So I think it's time to have sex. Yeah, you have no idea. You really have no idea. I do. Have you ever gone three years? I think I'm. I think I'm close to that RSELF. Are You, even though? I think now I definitely at well, covid's been like a year and a half. Covid right, COVID has it'll be more. Yeah, we're okay. Yeah, I'm not gonna maybe like two years, a little over tear. So I'm not far behind. Oh my God, have you ever thought about doing this speed dating thing? Oh, no, wait, oh, when you sit on the table, when you go around, yes, that's still hot. That doesn't even happen anymore. There's no way it will because of covid but I mean, I don't know. I look it still happens. I was I eating it up. Oh really, I looked it up. They do it at clubs and like fancy restaurants. So once it works out, you stay either for the lounge and have drinks with the person you matched with, or you stay the restaurant have a dinner with the person. I will do it if you do it with me. Well, that's the only reason why I'm ask and met US. Do you down? I'm Downa should we take the microphones with us? Yeah, and the camera, and the camera and the yeah, can you guys picture her speed dating? I feel like it's gonna like, what are you gonna? What? Do you have a couple minutes to add? Okay, we're going way off. What another episode? That's we're going to go into speed dating. Speed that's what we're going to do.
