Some stars just are "not worth the trouble" of booking them for the show.
Just because you're a big name, it doesn't mean you'll be able to Plead the Fifth on "Watch What Happens Live."
Host Andy Cohen has revealed the show has "blacklisted" more than its fair share of celebrities in the show's 10 years, for various reasons. While he wouldn't name names, he did explain why some stars just don't make the cut.
"There are a few people," he told AOL Lifestyle when asked if anyone's been banned. "And you would be surprised, there are a few people who we have deemed 'not worth the trouble.'"
"Like you can't talk about this and you can't ask about that," he continued. "Or there are a couple people who have been on the show that we deem too annoying to come back."
Among those who probably won't return: Amber Rose and Jillian Michaels, who Cohen previously cited as two of his most "awful" guests. He told Vulture back in June that Rose "was not up for my tomfoolery" when it came to certain questions, while Michaels left "very pissed off." Cohen also said he didn't think Gillian Anderson "had a good time."
Speaking with AOL Build recently, Cohen said "a few" guests have walked away mad, but that's not his goal with his outside-the-box questions.
"I don't want to piss people off, I want them to want to come back," he explained. "Mainly, they really want to come back and they know what they're getting into when they come on the show. But it is considered a semi-dangerous stop for celebrities."
He added that they don't preinterview their guests.
"I'm one of the few people that goes there. Howard Stern is my broadcasting role model," said Cohen. "I like to ask questions that I don't think the other shows in late night would ask."
"Watch What Happens Live" airs nightly on Bravo.
