A guest bartender on Bravo’s free-wheeling late-night show “Watch What Happens Live” surprised his long-time girlfriend on the show by asking her to marry him.
She said yes, on live television, as host Andy Cohen and guests Padma Lakshmi and Tamar Braxton watched.
The guest bartender was Chay Lapin, 26, an Olympic water polo star. His girlfriend, identified only as Kim, was introduced and invited on-stage by Cohen, who then asked Lapin to come from behind the bar to join her.
That’s when Lapin presented Kim with a ring and asked her to marry him. She gave an enthusiastic yes. The two have been together for more than five years.
And in case you are wondering what a talk show is doing with a “guest bartender,” then here’s an explanation: Yes, this show has a bar and a guest behind it every evening serving alcoholic beverages to the show’s guests.
