Andy Cohen rocks out in his Grateful Dead T-shirt while having a lightsaber duel with his son Benjamin, one: ‘The Force is strong in this one…’
Andy Cohen checked off another milestone after his son had his first lightsaber duel with him on Saturday.
The 52-year-old Watch What Happens Live host shared a cute photo of his one-year-old son Benjamin trying to battle with a blue lightsaber, though he made the rookie mistake of touching the blade.
The lighthearted moment came amid controversy at his network Bravo as multiple reality stars, including Stassie Schroeder, were fired from Vanderpump Rules for past racist statements and actions.

The talk show host seemed to be in higher spirits than he was on Wednesday, when he weighed in on the firings of Stassie Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni from Vanderpump Rules.
‘I absolutely support Bravo’s decision, I think it was the right decision,’ he said on his SiriusXM channel Radio Andy.
Andy also reminded his fans and critics that they shouldn’t complain to him about the show.
‘I am not, I don’t — I feel like I remind people this all the time — I’m not in charge of programming at Bravo anymore. I am not an Executive Producer of Vanderpump Rules. I don’t have anything to do with the show except I love it and that I host the ‘reunions.’
Speaking out: Andy was in higher spirits than he was Wednesday, when he said he agreed with the decision to fire four cast members from Vanderpump Rules for racist remarks and actions
Stassie and Kristen were fired from the series after former cast member Faith Stowers revealed that the two had called the police on her.
They accused her of being a Black woman thief they read about in a news story, despite knowing she wasn’t actually the culprit.
In addition to the false report, which put Faith in danger, Stassie previous complained that Black people ask for special treatment on a podcast episode.
Max and Brett were newcomers on the series, but were fired for racist comments they made on social media nearly a decade ago, despite producers previously deciding to let them remain on the show.

That was fast: Newcomers Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also dropped by Bravo. They apologized last week for past racist tweets on the Vanderpump Rules reunion
