Andy Cohen is shedding light on an awkward encounter with Taylor Swift that definitely landed him in her bad books.
The “Watch What Happens Live” host, whose new book “Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries” is out Tuesday, sat down with People’s Jess Cagle to dish about his “shady” Met Gala moment with the “Bad Blood” star.
As Cohen recalls to the audience, he overheard Swift asking her friends if there was a quieter area to enjoy the Met Gala festivities. “I said, ‘Your friend Katy is over there,’ ” Cohen said, deliberately taking aim at Swift’s rumoured feud with Katy Perry. “She goes, ‘Katy who?’ I go, ‘Katy Perry.’ ”
As expected, Cohen’s comment did not sit well with the songstress, who made it clear she did not want him sharing details about their conversation on-air.
“Maybe I am a shady ass b***h that I did put it in the book,” he noted. “I think the story is about what a douche I am in that instance.”
Knight and Rodriguez started dating in 2008, and while they’ve yet to tie the knot, they have taken each other’s names on social media. “We were rehearsing the day I met him,” Knight recalled during an interview with ET in June. “He’s a trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp, so I would be with the band all day, then the only time I got to see him was to go take his class. I’d take his class then we’d go for dinner afterwards.”
Knight added, “He’s been around from the beginning and seen [NKOTB’s comeback] morph into what it is today.”
This exciting news comes after the boy band shared on Tuesday that they’ll be touring this summer with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul. Tune in tonight for ET’s exclusive interview with NKOTB, which occurred moments after their big announcement.
