Andy Cohen is mostly known for being the man behind the Real Housewives series on Bravo, but he has done so much more than that. Cohen was born and raised here in St. Louis (he graduated from Clayton High School) and after college, he spent ten years with CBS mostly being a producer for their morning program. He is currently the Executive Vice President of Development and Talent at Bravo while hosting Watch What Happens Live nightly. Andy has been passionate about television since he was young so it is no surprise how successful he’s been. What is surprising is how this passion has sometimes led to some very cringe-worthy but memorable moments.
I’ve been an Andy Cohen and Real Housewives fan for years so when I heard that he wrote a memoir, I didn’t hesitate to pick it up. It’s true that I was most looking forward to the Housewives (or as I call them, the Crazy Ladies) chapters, but I was surprised how much I enjoyed the entire book. Cohen doesn’t hold anything back whether its retelling how he came out to family or friends or describing some of his embarrassing moments, and he’s definitely had his share of them. He stayed true to himself and didn’t try to sugarcoat his life or career.
