Andy Cohen's baby shower boasted a massive guest list as the popular Bravo host welcomed housewives galore! Cohen, 50, announced he would be becoming a father via surrogate mother in December 2018 on his talk show Watch What Happens Live -- and told fans he was expecting a boy when he co-hosted CNN's Live New Year's Eve bash.
His pals rejoiced and the baby shower at the Palm restaurant in Beverly Hills on Saturday, January 26, 2019 featured stars from all the Real Housewives shows, including Shannon Beador, Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson, NeNe Leakes, Camille Grammer, Ramona Singer, Teresa Giudice, Lisa Rinna, and Kyle Richards.
But some of the housewives were noticeably missing, including The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills queen Lisa Vanderpump!
The group that toasted Cohen enjoyed a lavish spread of delectable oven roasted tomato bruschetta on crostiniphyllo cups with crab cake, jicama slaw and old bay aioli, jumbo shrimp, lollipop lamb chops, lobster cobb salad, Chinese chicken salad, salmon with mango salsa and sliced espresso rubbed grass-fed filet mignon. Cohen told his guests, "I appreciate you all very much and can’t wait for my little boy to meet you."

RHOC star Shannon Beador, who, as Radar readers know, is looking thinner than ever after losing weight, showed off her new body in a fitted black patterned dress at Cohen's baby shower. She joined her co-star Tamra Judge, who rocked a blue strapless jumpsuit.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, whose husband Joe is facing possible deportation after his prison sentence (he has appealed), carried a gift for the happy father-to-be Cohen. Her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was at her daughter Antonia's cheer competition and wasn't able to show up for Cohen's party.
Lisa Rinna posed with Cohen when arriving at the shower and later danced wildly on a table inside! "I cannot wait to meet this boy," the Bravo host has said of expecting his son via a surrogate mother. RHOBH star Rinna, the mother of two, no doubt gave him some baby advice at the bash.
Kyle Richards of RHOBH glowed in a white suit while partying with Giudice and Judge. Later, as guests dined, Richards congratulated Cohen with a toast, sharing her excitement for him becoming a father and thanking everyone for sharing the TV host's special day.
Rebecca Romijn and her husband Jerry O'Connell, also friends with Cohen, carried a gift for the Bravo personality. Singer John Mayer also was a guest. All his pals couldn't be happier for Cohen, who has said, "When I was growing up… I just never thought it would be possible as a gay man to grow up and have a family."
Nene Leakes stepped out of her SUV when arriving at Cohen's baby shower. Her former RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks also made the scene. But Porsha Williams, who is pregnant, wasn't spotted.
However, many RHOA stars came out to toast Cohen, including Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton.
RHONY stars also attended the shower, including Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Here, Dorinda Medley poses for the cameras. But Luann De Lesseps was reportedly on her singing tour and didn't show. She Instagrammed a group photo of the event, writing, "Look at all the aunties this baby has! What a great looking crowd! @bravoandy you will be a great dad!"
As RadarOnline.com reported, RHONJ's Danielle Staub was personally invited to the shower by Cohen. Staub reportedly hadn't been asked at first due to a communications snafu but Cohen made things right and she posed in a white suit with a snappy tie!
Restauranteur Vanderpump didn't attend the shower at Beverly Hills' famed Palm restaurant. She reportedly had some business to handle. RHONY star Bethenny Frankel also wasn't present, and as everyone is aware, Kandi Burruss of RHOA couldn't show up because she's sequestered the Celebrity Big Brother house!
