Exclusive: Margaret Josephs Takes Us Behind-the-Scenes of WWHL

Have you ever wondered what really happens when a Real Housewife appears on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen? A lot more goes into the process than you might think and RHONJ star Margaret Josephs is giving us an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her first experience on the live show.

When a Housewife arrives to the WWHL studio, they are rushed into hair and makeup. They film teasers while the show is airing and even film scenes for the Clubhouse’s famous game of Bravowood Squares.

In the photos below, you can see Margaret preparing to go live.

What a whirlwind! I have to say, I’ve been to WWHL and it’s a wonderful experience. Thanks to Margaret for sharing her journey with us.



My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
