WENN 1 / 4

By Rebecca Silverstein

Angry housewives from New Jersey, the vocal stylings of an "X Factor" alum and the Silver Fox -- that's just a taste of today's episode of "Anderson Live." I was in the audience live blogging the entire show, and it was a blast.

Anderson is an awesome host. I loved taking goofy pictures with him in the backstage photo booth, and he was so great taking questions from -- and chatting with -- the audience. And yes, the Silver Fox is sexy.

Kellie Pickler co-hosted the show for a second time. The "American Idol" alum, who looks gorgeous with her head shaved, has amazing chemistry with Anderson; I wouldn't be surprised to see her in the co-host's chair again.

Chris Rene certainly has some hard-core fans! Renelians lined up as early as 5 a.m. to get seats in the studio for "Anderson Live." (And I swear, the girl behind me almost fainted when he came out.) Chris, who came in third on season one of "The X Factor," talked about his road to sobriety and performed "Rockin' With You" on the show. As a bonus for the studio audience and for Anderson's website, he also performed "Trouble."

Andy Cohen from Bravo called in to chat about the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion show, namely Joe Giudice's pal "Albie." I won't spoil what Andy said about it here, but needless to say, it's pretty great.

Anderson also had a segment on an undercover anger management project they did and how people can keep from losing their cool.

Hmm, maybe those "Real Housewives of New Jersey" could learn a thing or two from that.
