Andy Cohen Has Supported the Children of ‘The Real Housewives’ Throughout the Years

Over the years, Cohen has shown support to many of the Real Housewives children. In fact, during a March 2020 appearance on former Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson’s podcast, the star revealed that Cohen bought her daughter, Briana, many of the gifts from her baby registry when Briana was expecting her first child.

“Troy is 7 now,” Gunvalson explained on the podcast, as noted by Bravo. “Andy, I don’t know if you remember when Briana was pregnant with him, and you sent every present — listeners don’t know this — you sent every present that was on her gift registry that she never got. We had boxes from you and boxes from you. And I was like, wow, we are friends.”

In response, Cohen explained that he always felt connected to Gunvalson’s children. “I gotta tell ya, I just have a very emotional reaction every time I see Briana and Michael just because I feel like I’ve seen them grow up into these great people, and they always were, but it’s a trip to me,” Cohen said. “There’s a sweetness to both of them that’s never changed. They’re good people and you’re a great mom and I just always really connected to that.”
