Dealing with drama queens is almost the same as pageant queens, so maybe it’s fitting that Bravo’s Andy Cohen is helming the 2011 Miss USA Pageant.

But, really, when we first heard the words ‘Cohen’ and ‘pageant’ together, we had hoped an announcement was being made that there would be a ‘Real Housewives’ pageant. Hey, there are almost enough iterations to make that a viable idea.


Instead, Cohen will co-host the NBC event alongside E! personality Giuliana Rancic. The spectacle, which airs June 19, will take place at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Cohen and Rancic are already practicing their repartee via Twitter, sharing their excitement about the gig.

ShowTrackers, what do you think of this year’s hosts? More likely to tune in, or could you care less?
