During a recent conference call about the Miss USA 2012 pageant, Andy Cohen plead the fifth about revealing who his favorite housewife is. But he was more loose lipped when asked which Real Housewife would win Miss USA.

“I think Gretchen Rossi from(The Real Housewives of) Orange County because I always – I just think she is always pageant ready. She has like full pageant hair, she is very – she embraces a strong color, she is very clear and concise, she has good posture. She’s just – I just I feel that it’s Gretchen.”

And who is Cohen rooting for in Miss USA 2012 right now? Well, Miss Missouri 2012! “Well I haven’t met them yet so I’m just going to say Miss Missouri because it’s my hometown – you know it’s my home state. I grew up in St. Louis. But I actually haven’t really met them yet so it’s a total shot in the dark,” he finished.

We hope Miss Missouri 2012 makes him proud!
