Lea Michele 'pleads the fifth' when asked about Matthew Morrison on 'WWHL' -- VIDEO

Rachel Berry would never – but Lea Michele kept her lips zipped when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live!, Bravo’s talk show/boozefest hosted by Andy Cohen, Thursday night.

Cohen didn’t waste any time before breaking out his signature game, Plead the Fifth. While he stayed away from asking Michele for details about this year’s Naya Rivera drama, he did bring up something the actress wrote in her just-released book: Prior to Glee, she said, she briefly dated co-star Matthew Morrison. In Cohen’s world, there’s just one inevitable follow-up question: On a scale of one to ten, how was Mr. Schu in bed?

Michele had the perfect dodge to get out of answering: Her dad was standing just a few feet away. Elsewhere in the game, she revealed that she’s never felt any of her plots on Glee came close to jumping the shark…which, I’m sorry, but HAHAHAHAHA. Remember just a few weeks ago, when Rachel quit her lead role on Broadway? Love it or not, that show has been finding new sharks to jump over since the first season…and yet, somehow, Rachel and Co. still have one more Glee season to go.

Lindsay Lohan says 'sex list' is real, but there's an unfortunate reason it's public -- VIDEO

Another sad chapter in the saga of Lindsay Lohan went down when the actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live Thursday night.

Ostensibly there to promote Lindsay, which concludes its run this Sunday, Andy Cohen wasted no time playing one of the show’s most popular games with the actress — Plead the Fifth, where the guest is asked three dish-y questions and allowed to “plead the fifth” on only one. And naturally, Cohen used this opportunity to ask Lohan about the alleged “sex list” that’s been making the rounds in the tabloids. His exact question for her: “Recently, an alleged list of your alleged former conquests was leaked or published. A few of the names on the list were Ashton Kutcher, Orlando Bloom, Zac Efron, James Franco, and Justin Timberlake. Will you confirm that two of those names are [accurate]?” READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan will appear on 'Watch What Happens Live'. Let's plan the games!

For a very specific demographic, the ultimate news was just announced: Lindsay Lohan will appear on Watch What Happens Live! The episode will air next Thursday, April 17, EW has confirmed.

“This one is a long time coming. We love Lindsay and plan to celebrate the s@%# out of her!” host/executive producer Andy Cohen told E!.

Fans of the show know this has the potential to be quite the memorable episode. Not only is the live program proudly booze-soaked (a tradition they will obviously (right?) forgo for the evening), but the program’s cheeky charm thrives on Cohen asking the guests just-this-side-of-inappropriate questions. Lohan, for all her faults, has always proven herself adept on the talk show circuit, reliably ready with a cigarette smoke-assisted throaty laugh and a charming story. (Just witness her on the Tonight Show.) If she shows up with gossip, the episode will be can’t-miss. Just think of the Ooooooooprah intel! READ FULL STORY

Late Night Highlight: Enrique Iglesias teaches Andy Cohen how to seduce a woman (hint: dance!) -- VIDEO

Enrique Iglesias can be your hero, baby. He can kiss dance away the pain. At leas,t that’s what he taught Andy Cohen when the singer stopped by Watch What Happens Live Thursday.

When asked how to seduce a woman, Iglesias suggested dancing — and, of course, letting the woman feel around a bit. The result? Cohen actually picking up a lady, and other visuals you never thought you’d see.

Late Night Highlight: Kristin Cavallari defends her decision not to vaccinate her kids -- VIDEO

Just last week, Fox’s Lisa Kennedy joked with Kristin Cavallari about Jenny McCarthy’s decision not to vaccinate her kids. Then, in an awkward moment viewers won’t soon forget, Cavallari announced that she had also made the decision not to vaccinate.

And last night, on Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Kristin Cavallari about her controversial decision. Cavallari said she felt she was doing what’s right for her kids. “There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines,” she said.

Watch Cavallari, who’s currently expecting her second child with husband Jay Cutler, below:

'Watch What Happens Live': It's Cher's world -- we're all just living in it

Last night’s Watch What Happens: Live featured Andy Cohen interviewing one of his idols, Cher. This late-night show is definitely geared towards a certain audience — if you have an aversion to trivia games played by reality stars living in Bravoland and constant mentions of drinking, then this isn’t the show for you.

Yet there’s a certain charm to it, mostly due to Andy’s sheer excitement over everything in the world. Even when he’s mentioning things like the “Jackhole of the Day,” he says it nearly bouncing out of his seat and with such a smile that it looks like it’s going to fall off of his face. It’s like he downs six espressos, three 5-Hour Energies, and several glasses of bubbly before every show.

So if he’s like that normally, how do you think he reacted when singer-actress-inspiration Cher appeared on WWHL last night? Let’s just say excitement is an understatement. At several points throughout the episode, I thought that Andy was going to start crying — I’ve never seen a grown man so thrilled in my life. Homeboy had some high expectations though: Cher was his idol growing up, even affectionately telling her how he used to sit transfixed in front of the TV watching her and her elaborate outfits: “You gave me life, you gave me hope, you  gave me fairy dust.” READ FULL STORY

On the scene: NKOTB take it step by step at Andy Cohen's 'Watch What Happens Live'

When Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen described the members of New Kids on the Block as the first boy band-turned-man band, he wasn’t kidding. Faster than you could say “Mazel!” the Beantown balladeers were talking about Joey McIntyre’s junk, and the adult conversation didn’t stop until the WWHL aftershow cameras clicked off.

Fresh off the release of their album 10, McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, and brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight were eager to take on everything Cohen had on tap. As is custom at the Bravo Clubhouse, this included cheekily named games with titles like “New Kids on the Jock” (yes, that was a bulge-identifying contest — which they nailed) and “Who Kids on the Block” — a kiss-and-tell, Newlywed Game-style lark during which we learned Danny has always done well with the ladies and that Joey is, very proudly, the quintet’s biggest Masshole.

SXSW: Andy Cohen on his zaniest 'Watch What Happens Live' moments

If there’s a drinking word for this week, it’s “SXSW,” according to the drinking word expert, Bravo development exec and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen (pictured above at the 2012 festival).  Of course, if you drank every time someone here in Austin said “South By,” you’d really be in trouble. For the first time, Bravo is taking its hit late night show on the road and will be broadcasting live from Austin next week, with guests including Sarah Silverman, Jenny Slate, Catfish creator Nev Shulman, and more.

Cohen, who arrived to his panel late due to a transportation mishap (“I have bad Austin car karma,” he said, “Last year I got in a car accident”), was on hand to answer audience (ahem, fan) questions about the show and his career, alongside executive producer Michael Davies.

The first striking thing about the panel was the ratio of women to men. Austin in mid-March is overrun by men – mostly glasses-wearing ones with some form of facial hair – in other words, the nerd stereotype is, despite more and more women being in tech, still in full effect, at least at the Interactive panels. Not so at the Watch What Happens Live panel — every woman in Austin seemingly piled in to the Long Performing Arts Center for Cohen’s talk. For the record, I am fully in support of more women AND more Bravo panels at SXSW (maybe next year we can have Rachel Zoe on creating a new form of slang? I die).

Cohen hosts the only live show on late night TV, and Watch What Happens Live has grown from a one-off experiment back in 2009 to a five-night-a-week extravaganza that’s had everyone from the Real Housewives to Meryl Streep in the studio. Cohen shared some of his favorite moments from the past four years hosting the show and a few tidbits about what’s to come:

++Hosting the Hurricane Sandy episode — in his pajamas. Bethenny [Frankel] was supposed to be on the night of the storm. I did the show alone talking to the cameras by myself. I tweeted for questions. I did a shotsky with my crew.

++The odd celebrity pairings are (sometimes) by design. We wanted Jenna Jameson on and we needed someone opposite her, so we put her with Clay Aiken. We had John Mayer on with Dan Rather and it’s one of the top five shows we’ve ever done.

++His dream guest is Connie Britton.  If Connie Britton came in the club house, Cohen said, that would be the ultimate. “I love every Friday Night Lights person.”

++Bravo loves Downton Abbey as much as we do. As Watch What Happens Live grows, Cohen said he hopes to do more themed episodes. The dream? Downton Abbey. “I am going to take O’Brien down!”

Andy Cohen tweets he's 'flattered' by flamboyant 'SNL' impersonation -- VIDEO

It’s good to know that Andy Cohen can take it as well as dish it out. On this week’s Saturday Night Live, Taran Killam starred as the Bravo host, portraying Cohen as a camera-obsessed, egotistical, flamboyant moderator of Watch What Happens Live, saying things like, “I hope you’re all hungry because I’m a cutie pie!” and, “I guess I have to ask my guests some questions. Bye bye, camera, I’ll miss you.” (A+ for snark, Killam.)

Upon learning of the skit on Sunday morning, Cohen tweeted his reaction to the impersonation, and (shocker!) it didn’t faze him: “OMG the one night I go to bed early I’m lampooned on SNL?! Great job I am flattered! #ImLikeAShark #VeryCute.”  Basically, if you were looking for drama or a battle of comedic personalities, you ain’t gonna find it here.
