Andy Cohen has called former Real Housewives of New Jersey star James Marchese ‘sick’ after he made vile, homophobic comments on Twitter.

Marchese – who was fired from the reality TV show after season one – took to Twitter following Kevin Hart’s firing as the Oscars host after past homophobic tweets surfaced.

The former reality TV star defended the comedian – who once joked that he would do everything he could to stop his on being gay – and Marchese said having a gay child “ruins” holidays and family traditions.

He tweeted: “So true NO STRAIGHT MALE wants his son to be gay. A gay son is a curse that takes away your #family traditions #heritage #lgtbiq is a a parents nightmare that destroys families.

“Ruins holidays like #Christmas #KevinHart we support you! #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder”

After people criticised the former TV star about his comments, he continued his vile rant claiming that no one is born gay and is a lifestyle choice like being vegan.

He continued: “First: bigots are intolerant of others opinions. The comments below prove you are all bigots.

“Second, not one comment from a straight male who has sons.

“Third; Europe is importing muslim men because #lgtbiq has caused a crisis due to lack of children being born.”

“For those pushing #LGTBIQ agenda show me a single credible study which links genetics.

“Being gay is a physical act derived in sexual deviance by definition.

“No one is born gay it is a lifestyle choice like being vegan. Get over it. You are #FakeNews”

 Cohen – who is the creator of the show and the first openly gay host on a US chat show – responded to a fan who tagged him in Marchese’s tweets.

The former Attitude cover star called his former employee ‘sick’ and said he would ‘pray for his poor kids’.

He wrote: “Thank gd is right. Sick. Pray for his poor kids.”
