Andy also shares that The Real Housewives of Miami is one of his favorite in the Franchise! Check out an excerpt from the interview below.
What do your parents think about all of this?
I think they look at me and think, Is that my kid? They really love all the madness of it all.
Has there ever been a better time to be gay in America?
No, definitely not. It’s still a fight for equality, but the gay community has never had such support and love. I am so proud of who I am and what I have become, and I can honestly say that I think many gay people feel the same way.
Let’s talk a little Housewives — Miami is officially signed on for season three!
They sure are. You sound surprised. I always knew it was going to do well. It’s one of my favorite franchises.
I mean, season one was a bust. Season two was great. I figured a season three was in the works with an upgraded reunion.
It wasn’t hard to upgrade the reunion from season one. So sad, right? I’ll never do a reunion in the clubhouse again; we were on top of each other.
Who is your favorite Miami housewife?
I don’t have a favorite. I am like a proud mother; I love all the ladies equally. I take that back — Mama Elsa is my favorite. She is everything.
Mama Elsa is everything and more.
