Lady Gaga and her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper got so close at the 2019 Academy Awards during their performance of “Shallow” that we here at Bravo HQ couldn’t help but notice that it kind of felt… familiar. The longing. The snuggling at the piano. Oh… all. That. Longing. The way they looked at each other with so much love and, like, pure passion. (Is it just us or is it getting hot in here?)
But, seriously, we’ve seen this performance before. On Bravo. On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, to be specific. It was when The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub joined forces with Lori Michaels in the Clubhouse for their debut performance of “Real Close.” We think the only difference between this unforgettable Clubhouse moment and that buzzy Academy Awards performance is that fact that “Shallow” won an Oscar (but we’ve also always felt that “Real Close” is definitely award-worthy).
