Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live has become a talk-show staple since its premiere in 2009. Whether due to Andy Cohen’s abilities as a host, the late-night talk show atmosphere, or the drinking that occurs, it seems like celebrities tend to open up about details they would otherwise keep quiet. By details, we mean illicit substances, sexual experimentation, and celebrity feuds. Many of these shocking revelations come out during the "Plead the Fifth" segment of the talk show. This part of the show features Cohen asking his guest three questions, during which they are only allowed to plead the fifth and skip answering once. It’s very much like Ellen’s games of "Never Have I Ever," except even more revealing.

Bravo has an extensive programming lineup, featuring shows like The Real Housewives franchise, Southern Charm, Million Dollar Listing, Top Chef, and other reality favorites. However, Watch What Happens Live may be the network’s underrated gem, as it’s where we get to really know our favorite celebrities.

    Anne Hathaway’s brand isn’t necessarily "stoner." The Oscar-winner is usually portrayed as a hard worker - sometimes to her detriment. Because of this, it may surprise everyone that Hathaway did, in fact, admit to being a bit of a stoner.

    During "Plead the Fifth," Andy Cohen brought up a rumored photo of Hathaway with a “massive blunt” before asking, “On a scale from 1-10, how big of a stoner is Anne Hathaway?” Hathaway paused, smiled, and then answered, “I’m not a little one.”

    Shaquille O'Neal is widely considered one of the best basketball players in the history of the NBA. He is also well-known for his height, as he is a whopping 7’1”. O’Neal’s most revealing "Plead the Fifth" question dealt with his insane height, and whether or not the sports star was proportional. During the segment, Andy Cohen asked, “Shaq, your shoe size is 23. How big is your d*ck?”

    Instead of pleading the fifth, O’Neal said, “I’ll just show you.” He then proceeded to take off his shoe and hold it up to his thigh.

    Joe Jonas may now be known for singing lead vocals for DNCE, but he initially rose to fame in the 2000s alongside brothers Nick and Kevin in The Jonas Brothers. When Jonas appeared on Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen wasted no time getting to the heart of the matter between the brothers by asking, “Which Jo Bro is the most well endowed?”

    Nick had also appeared on the show and pleaded the fifth when asked the same question. However, Jonas opted to answer with, “These are Nick’s words and not mine, but he said he was going to say me. So, I’ll say me.”

    Lindsay Lohan's career is often overshadowed by her personal life. One such instance involved an alleged list of intimate partners, including Ashton Kutcher, Ryan Phillippe, Orlando Bloom, and many other famous names.

    While on Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Lohan about the infamous list. Instead of pleading the fifth, Lohan revealed that the list was real, but she also talked about the massive invasion of privacy. Lohan explained, “That was actually my fifth step in AA. And someone, when I was moving during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it. And so, that’s a really personal thing.”
