Andy Cohen in hot water
In an interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace, Andy Cohen walked back earlier statements supporting the former housewife.
Wallace grilled him on his support, asking: ” Why would you take her side against the thousands of people she defrauded, including a lot of elderly?”
Cohen winced, then responded: “I think I was hoping she was actually innocent.”
“That was before she pleaded guilty, I mean, that I said that, I would think?”
Wallace pointed out the comments were made after the plea.
“Oh, god. Um, anyway! Wow, this is fun,” Cohen said, jokingly. “Sometimes you get to know someone and you get to like them, you hope that they are not guilty of something horrible.”
