Ask Andy: Was Brandi Throwing a Glass of Wine at Jeff Lewis Staged?
On the most recent edition of Ask Andy, a two or three minute web clip where Andy’s assistant reads him viewer questions and he answers, the assistant reads Brandi’s tweet to Andy regarding her stunt on WWHL, and asks, “was it staged?”
Andy’s response: “Let me say this. It felt very real as it was happening. As you can tell I was very freaked out. And Jeff seemed very freaked out. When it was over they said it was a joke. It didn’t seem like a joke to me. It wasn’t funny. Usually a joke is followed by a punchline. Usually a joke is followed by “just kidding””
His assistant: “If it’s a good joke.”
Andy: “Exactly. I spent the entire after show trying to get them to forgive each other, and all this stuff. And then afterwords everyone was like, oh that’s a joke, and I’m like, oh okay, okay. Wow, frankly if she had turned around after she was pretending to cry, I guess, and said ‘just kidding’, it kinda would have been amazing.”
His assistant: “It would have been awesome. But it was so elongated. She was like – I need five minutes – was she actually crying?”
Andy: “I don’t think so, no. She seemed very upset to me, and I think Jeff was genuinely reacting to her. I don’t think Jeff knew. I don’t know.
His assistant: “what part was a joke.”
His assistant wraps it up. “So we’re still really up in the air about whether it was staged or not.”
