Watch What Happens Live Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture

Andy Cohen, Bravo’s executive vice president of Development and Talent, is responsible for overseeing the production of such hits as Top Chef and The Real Housewives franchises. He is the host and executive producer of Watch What Happens Live, Bravo’s late-night, interactive talk show and is the master of ceremonies for the network’s reunion specials. Having won an Emmy and two Peabody Awards for his work (so far), Andy can now add author to his repertoire. He’s penned Most Talkative, an account of his lifelong love affair with pop culture that brought him from the suburbs of St. Louis, through some amazing experiences and on to his own television show. From a young age, Andy 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 and All My Children and to his mother, who received daily letters from Andy at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. After graduating high school as a popular teen and attending Boston University, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television and his undeniable gift for gab. In the book, Most Talkative, 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 between is an awe-filled excursion of which most can only dream. He tells tales of absurd mishaps during his decade at CBS News, hilarious encounters with the heroes of his youth, and the real stories behind The Real Housewives.
