A gaggle of Real Housewives threw a huge baby shower for Bravo head honcho Andy Cohen over the weekend as the Watch What Happens Live host celebrated becoming a father. But a few unlucky cast members were left off the guest list.
Reality stars from all of Bravo’s Real Housewives shows were on hand to help Cohen celebrate, including Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, NeNe Leakes, Vicki Gunvalson, Camille Grammer, Teresa Giudice, Ramona Singer, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Rinna.
But there was one big name missing from the action. According to Radar Online, Lisa Vanderpump did not make an appearance at the baby shower. Inside sources claim that Vanderpump had private business matter that kept her away from the event. Her absence comes on the heels of a dramatic season of RHOBH for the Vanderpump Rules star and there are even rumors she will leave the show after Season 9.
Also absent were Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss. It is unclear why Frankel was not at the party, but Burruss is currently busy on the set of Celebrity Big Brother.
The ladies unfortunately missed out on a lavish dinner — which included crab cakes, bruschetta, shrimp, lamb poster, salmon, and filet mignon — and a heartfelt thank you from the Bravo host himself.
“I appreciate you all very much and can’t wait for my little boy to meet you,” Cohen told his guests.
Gunvalson, meanwhile, helped host the shower and was able to get an invite for the controversial Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub, who was originally snubbed from the event. Staub reportedly flew to California expecting to attend the party, but quickly found out her name wasn’t on the guest list.
Luckily, Cohen stepped in and made sure Staub was a part of the fun. Although some of the biggest names on the network could not make the party, everyone who attended had a blast welcoming Cohen’s first.
Andy Cohen announced that he was becoming a father with the help of a surrogate back in December.
