  Andy Cohen Denies Aviva Drescher's Claim That RHONY Producers Force Cast to Drink: 'So Dumb' Andy Cohen is shutting down allegations that Bravo producers push alcohol on their Real Housewives stars. On Sunday, Cohen addressed a Page Sixarticle in the New York Post with a headline that read: “Housewives Cast: ‘Show drove us to drink.’ ” The Watch What Happens Live host, who is also the executive producer of the Housewives franchise, called the article the “equivalent of the print version of clickbait.” “I mean, this article is so dumb,” Cohen said on his Instagram story. “It’s a lot of quotes from Aviva complaining about the show, basically.” The article, published online Saturday, features claims from former Real Housewives of New York Citystar Aviva Drescher. Drescher, who starred in seasons 5 and 6, said the show’s production team could go too far with their eagerness to liquor up the cast and alleged she was once pressured to take a shot of alcohol while filming.
