Thursday night on Bravo TV’s “Watch What Happens Live,” host Andy Cohen welcomed MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, host of “The Rachel Maddow Show.” Cohen showed Maddow several photos of celebrities and asked her to say the first question that she would ask each of them if they were guests on her show.

“Here’s what we’re going to play,” said Cohen, “a little game called ‘Rapid Fire Rachel.’ I’m going to show you a picture of a hypothetical guest. You give me the first question that comes to your mind.”

“Okay,” Maddow said, rubbing her forehead to warm up.

The first photo was of Kim Kardashian. Maddow paused for a beat, then asked, “Are you enjoying being pregnant?”

Next up was Lindsay Lohan, followed by a bevy of Bravo’s “Real Housewives.”

Finally, Cohen showed a photo of Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, to whom Maddow said, “How hard is it to be the king, man? It must be hard to be surrounded by people not amazing as you. How do you handle the rest of humanity when you are so great?”

Surely it is, for him, a daily trial.
