Andy Cohen was injured on the set of Watch What Happens Live during a commercial break. The presenter was backstage when he grabbed a hot curling iron belonging to one of his guests, Carole Brooks, and burned his hand in the process.
“Welcome back to Watch What Happens Live,” Cohen said after the break. “I’m Andy Cohen at the clubhouse, where you could drink too much and make an inappropriate statement, or they could grab Carole Brooks’ curling iron with their hands during the commercial break and get burned, which is what I just did,” he explained.
With a fresh burn on his hand, Cohen decided to continue the show. “I’m in pain. I’m not kidding,” he said. After the incident, he went to twitter to simply say, “That hurt.”

Fans expressed concern for Cohen as he put ice on his hand
To ease the pain, Cohen put some ice on his hand, but viewers messaged Bravo saying he wasn’t supposed to ice a burn.
“Okay, I’ll take it off then. Can someone bring me what is good for burns?” he said. During another pause, Cohen dipped his hand in some milk and someone put some burn cream on his fingers before bandaging them. Cohen told the audience this, adding that he was “trembling,” which he described as “very strange.”
Someone wrote to Cohen on Twitter, suggesting that hot curling irons shouldn’t be around during live shows.
“New rule not to leave hot curling irons outside during a live show?” the tweet read.
“Uh, yeah,” Cohen wrote.
On July 14, 2022, Cohen shared a video from his gym. He was traveling with his longtime coach Stanislav Kravchenko and his girlfriend Amy Sedaris.
“It was awful,” he said. “If I never see another curling iron in my life…” he added as Kravchenko held it out.
Cohen was injured at WWHL in 2020
The hand burn wasn’t the first time Cohen had injured himself filming WWHL, either. On the August 16, 2020, episode of the Bravo After Show, Cohen actually cut his lip on air.
“Hey everyone, welcome to Watch What Happens Live: @ Home from the Hamptons.” I’m your host, Andy Cohen, for what I’m told is the last show of the summer. And what a fun summer it was. i hate you summer i hate you summer I hate you,” he said, according to Bravo.
He vented his frustration on a blue plastic cup, crumpled it up, and then popped it in his mouth to bite down and really let it all out. He continued with the show and spoke to Karen Huger, who joined him remotely due to the pandemic. Within seconds, blood appeared at the corner of his mouth.
“Did I cut my lip? Oh my gosh look folks I cut my lip. Oh dear God. Accidents, but I’ve banned that from my system,” he said, wiping away the blood.
He later went to twitter to declare, “I really am an idiot.”
