Andy Cohen was finally confronted about his “engagement” to former hockey stud and LGBT ally Sean Avery this week.

The pair’s bromance sparked rumors on a website designed by the ghost of Geocities earlier this month because, you know, gay men and straight men can’t just be friends. According to flimsy reports, an Instagram photo of the two men at the beach confirmed their “secret engagement.”

Last night, a TMZ cameraman caught Cohen on the streets of New York and congratulated him on the recent “engagement.” The Bravo brainchild was not having it.

“Sean Avery is STRAIGHT. Do you understand that?”, he said. “So a gay guy and a straight guy should be able to be friends.”

Then, as if to confirm the reason why TMZ photographers think gay men and straight men cannot just be friends, Cohen added “Listen, I’d be happy if Sean and I were banging’ … but it’s not [happening].” Maybe now that Sean finally knows how his man pal feels, it will!
