The head of Bravo's reality television empire shares stories from his network career, recounting his experiences as a television-loving gay youth, excited college interview with idol Susan Lucci, and rise to an influential figure in entertainment.

McMillan Palgrave

The man behind the Real Housewives writes about his lifelong love affair with pop culture that brought him from the suburbs of St. Louis to his own television show

From a young age, Andy Cohen knew one thing: He loved television. Not in the way that most kids do, but in an irrepressible, all-consuming, I-want-to-climb-inside-the-tube kind of way. And climb inside he did. Now presiding over Bravo's reality TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels andAll My Children and to his mother, who received daily letters from Andy at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

The journey begins with Andy interviewing his all-time idol Susan Lucci for his college newspaper and ends with him in a job where he has a hand in creating today's celebrity icons. In the witty, no-holds-barred style of his showWatch What Happens Live, Andy tells tales of absurd mishaps during his ten years at CBS News, hilarious encounters with the heroes and heroines of his youth, and the real stories behindThe Real Housewives. Dishy, funny, and full of heart, Most Talkative provides a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the world of television, from a fan who grew up watching the screen and is now inside it, both making shows and hosting his own.

So. Funny. I have so much more respect for him and in fact the Housewives shows after reading this thoughtful and hilarious book. Andy Cohen is a sweetheart.

Hilarious book for Andy Cohen fans! It was fun to learn about how he got to where he is today and laugh along the way. It felt like I was sitting on a chair at Watch What Happens Live with a cocktail in my hand listening to a friend.
