Jerry O'Connell Real Men Watch Bravo

Jerry O’Connell has lots of feelings about The Real Housewives.

The actor will host the new late-night talk show Real Men Watch Bravo, which he will also executive-produce alongside Andy Cohen.

Premiering this fall on Bravo, each episode of the program will feature the host and a panel of male guests discussing — what else? — the network’s buzziest moments, along with other pop-culture topics.
