Andy Cohen’s disastrous new video with 4-year-old son Ben had parents begging him to just tell a little white lie next time.
The Bravo TV host is enjoying breakfast with his son in a new video captioned, “Ask the Meatball….”
In the video, Cohen holds up a Magic 8 Ball and asks his son, “Ben, what is this called?”
Ben responds, “A meatball!” he says in the cutest little voice. Cohen smiles and says, “It’s not called a meatball, silly. It’s called an eight ball.”
“Yeah, but I like to call it a meatball,” Ben insists.
Later, Cohen says, “Should we ask the meatball if you’re going to have a good day at camp today?”
“Yeah!” Ben responds, before grabbing it out of his dad’s hands. “Can I ask it?”
“OK,” Cohen says.
Off camera, you can hear Ben ask, “Am I going to have fun today at camp?” Then he shakes the magic eight ball and Cohen reads what it says.
“It says, ‘Very doubtful.’” Cohen reads.
“I think you are,” Cohen tries to cheer up his son, before giving the camera a look.
Parents came to the comment section to remind Cohen of one very important thing: Ben can’t read yet.
“Parenting 101 – remember he can’t read, control the narrative 🤣🤣🤣🤣,” one person wrote.
Another said, “If he can’t read – just lie! It’s the key to successful parenting!”
“Lying has never been more acceptable than in this moment 😂😂😂😂,” someone else commented.
