- TV News -Is 'The People's Couch' Coming Back To Bravo? Andy Cohen Is A Cruel Tease
It's been a wild day for Bravo fans. First, we were expecting a new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills trailer to drop. That didn't happen. Then, Andy Cohen seemingly teased the return of The People's Couch... only for him to dash all of our hopes and dreams.
It all started on Wednesday, April 7, as many fans refreshed Twitter with the hopes of seeing some new RHOBH footage. Cohen even addressed the anticipation, teasing a "MAJOR announcement" on Twitter, but adding, "no, it's not the #RHOBH trailer." He refused to say more, but provided a couch emoji, a camera emoji, and "UP!" emoji as clues.
Fans in the responses had a lot of guesses, ranging from Watch What Happens Live opening up to an in-studio audience to "Jen Shah is filming her therapy sessions?" But here at The Dipp, our prevailing theory was that Bravo is reviving The People's Couch, an entire show that's basically just a recurring cast reacting to various TV series.
The People's Couch aired for four seasons on Bravo, from 2013-2016, and featured a handful of families and friend groups who would sit together on a couch and react loudly — and often hilariously — to whatever they were watching. The cast included fan favorites like BFFs Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard; The Zeno family (Lamont, Princella, and Rashawn); and friends Emerson Collins, Scott Nevins, and Blake McIver. I miss them.
Unfortunately, Cohen put a stop to that rumor pretty quickly, answering a question about The People's Couch returning with a simple "No." He later announced that he was actually teasing the news that he would be hosting a huge Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, looking back at all 20 seasons of the landmark show.
Hopefully, the fan excitement at the possibility of bringing back The People's Couch will get Cohen thinking about a revival. 2021 is literally the perfect time to bring it back. The show is essentially about what we've all been doing throughout the pandemic, and would be a breeze to film while following all COVID protocols, since it wouldn't even require the cast to leave their homes. It's a yes for me, Cohen!
