Andy Cohen Reveals The ‘Real Housewives’ Stars He Wishes Had ‘Stuck Around Longer’

Last month, Andy Cohen revealed the Real Housewives star he wished had "stuck around longer" in the franchise.

During an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen @ Home, Danny Pellegrino, who is the host of the Everything Iconic podcast, asked Cohen the burning question, according to Bravo's The Daily Dish.

"I always kind of long for a Caroline Manzo," Andy said after giving the question some thought. "Obviously, you wish that Bethenny [Frankel] had stuck around."

Andy added during the WWHL: @ Home After Show, "Obviously, I wish Lisa Vanderpump had stayed."

Andy also added Lydia McLaughlin to the list. "In her first season, she had a good first season and then she left of her own accord," Andy explained. "So in that first go 'round, I kind of wish that she had stayed around."

Ryan Flynn, Senior Vice President, Current Production at Bravo, told The Daily Dish podcast in 2017 that Lydia was also "someone who I was sad to see go." 

"When she didn't come back the first time, we all wanted her back. And it just didn't work for a lot of reasons. I think it was family. I think it was kids. I think it's a lot of things," Flynn, who was an EP on RHOC during Lydia's first season, said prior to her return in Season 12, according to Bravo's The Daily Dish. "But as a fan, even though I don't oversee Orange County anymore, I'm so excited that she's back because I always loved that sort of that spunky, sparkly energy. She's the kind of woman who would step foot in a pit of fire and somehow dance through it all and smile. And I think that's so great about her."

Caroline is an OG RHONJ cast member. She appeared in Seasons 1 through 5. Bethenny has also been a part of RHONY from the start, appearing in Seasons 1 through 3 and, later, Seasons 7 through 11. LVP appeared in Seasons 1 through 9 of RHOBH.

As for Lydia, she appeared in Season 8 and returned for Season 12 but left after that season. In 2020, she and her mother landed their own digital series on called Glitter Town.
