During the 13-year span of "Watch What Happens Live," the show has welcomed an untold number of guests, but there's one person that never sat down in "The Clubhouse": Meghan Markle.
The fact that the Duchess never got an invite to the show is "the biggest blunder" in the history of "WWHL," Andy Cohen admitted on his SiriusXM show "Andy Cohen Live." These days the Bravo scion would be "begging" her to make an appearance.
Andy reflected on Meghan's absent-invite after appearing on her "Archetypes" podcast on Tuesday, Nov. 29. The episode began somewhat awkwardly after Andy told Prince Harry's wife that it nice to "meet" you. Meghan quickly told Andy that they've actually met several times before.
"It's good to see you. I've met you before, [but] you'll never remember it," she told him.
Meghan and Andy first met at a joint USA-Bravo event when she was acting on "Suits." Their second meeting came in 2015 when she joined co-star Gabriel Macht on "WWHL," as he was a guest on the show, not her.
"I was so eager to be on your show, because I was such a 'Housewives' fan at the time, and I just couldn't get booked Andy!" she said told the Bravo host.
Reflecting on the podcast conversation, the "Housewives" producer said Meghan was "gleeful" in reminding him they've met.
"I understand why she would want to throw that in my face, basically," he said. "I understand, you know, you never forget how you were treated. You're still the same person – she's still Meghan Markle."
Andy went on to tell his listeners he didn't realize that Meghan would leave the uncomfortable exchange in the podcast, but he's glad she did "because it's compelling and awkward."
"I just have to say, I get why she left that in. I thought that was so interesting," he said on Wednesday, Nov. 30. "First of all, you never know who you meet in a day, but listen, I didn't become a duchess obviously, but I became an old queen talk show host."
He continued, "And when I was a young queen I remember meeting people who were whatever, so I just think it's interesting. It's really interesting."
