Andy Cohen has reportedly said thanks, but NO THANKS to hosting the Miss Universe 2013 pageant being held in Russia this year.

And all we can say is…


The Watch What Happens Live star told his long-time pal and pageant co-host Giuliana Rancic that he will NOT be joining her onstage because of discriminatory new laws being enforced in Russia.

Andy explained his decision further, saying:

"The law is that anyone under suspicion of homosexuality can be arrested. [I] didn't feel right as a gay man stepping foot into Russia."

We TOTALLY understand his cause for concern! Right now is NOT the time to visit Russia, especially if you're gay!

No word yet on who will possibly replace Andy, who also serves as the Executive V.P. of Development at Bravo. The cable network's parent company, NBC will be broadcasting the pageant.

Think Andy made the right move???

    Perez Hilton is an ugly dwarf faced piece of garbage. The fact that something you scrape off the bottom your shoe can become famous for being a low life, is testimony to the declining state of western civilization. Its not surprising you would choose the namesake of someone who is equally void of talent and almost as useless as yourself…at least she's learned to spin a record.

    Andy Cohen is a total nobody in Russia (he's pretty much a nobody here too, if he's reduced to hosting pageants, lol), so what he does and why is does it is totally irrelevant. I think this his HILARIOUS. Is this going to make some huge ripple in the world? NO. It just highlights how very unimportant he is, because nothing in Russia is going to change. Cohen is easily replaced, and the show will go on. Andy Cohen = self-important, delusional retard. I support Russia's stand on gays.
    Re: airstreamingypsy – Why should all of the heterosexual athletes be punished because of hateful homos? Are you that selfish that you'd ruin careers because you can't bully the Russians? Really? People like you should be put down. You are a total asshole.
    Re: Perez = Crap – AMEN.

    How brave of( Pop Eye) Andy
    to take such a strong, and such a butch stance to protest Russia's anti gay laws
    Now if he will talk to his buddy Obama who is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, who is currently slaughtering thousands in Egypt, burning churches dragging Christians from their homes
    And lining up against Israel,
