Watch flawless, hilarious impressions of Bravolebrities

Comedian Amy Phillips does flawless impressions of Bravo stars such as Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, and Tabatha Coffey, and earlier this month turned them into a video in which they wish head Bravo star Andy Cohen a happy birthday. (Andy was mocked on SNL with a good impression, but these are significantly better.)

Amy has previously done strong impressions of Kara DioGuardi, Kat von D, Ellen DeGeneres on American Idol, and many other celebrities. But it’s her Bravo stars that are the most incredible and make me wet myself.

Honestly, these are so accurate that you almost don’t know that they’re impressions; close your eyes and it really is Ramona and Bethenny talking.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds
