The Andy Cohen Diaries
A Deep Look at a Shallow Year
Borrow Borrow

A year in the whirlwind life of the beloved pop icon Andy Cohen, in his own cheeky, candid, and irreverent words As a TV Producer and host of the smash late night show Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen has a front row seat to an exciting world not many get to see. In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with Real Housewives, makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog. We learn everything from which celebrity peed in her WWHL dressing room to which Housewives are causing trouble and how. Nothing is off limits – including dating. We see Andy at home and with close friends and family (including his beloved and unforgettable mom). Throughout, Andy tells us not only what goes down, but exactly what he thinks about it. Inspired by the diaries of another celebrity-obsessed Andy (Warhol), this honest, irreverent, and laugh-out-loud funny book is a one-of-a-kind account of the whos and whats of pop culture in the 21st century.

About the Author-
  • Andy Cohen is the host and Executive Producer of "Watch What Happens Live," Bravo's late night, interactive talk show. The series is the only live show in Late Night, and features everyone from "Bravolebrities" to big names in pop culture, including Oprah, Cher, Lady Gaga, Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Fallon, Jane Fonda, Anderson Cooper, Ellen Barkin, Kelly Ripa, Diane Von Furstenberg, Mike Tyson, Kareem Abdul Jabar, and many many Real Housewives. He also serves as Executive Producer of "The Real Housewives" franchise and hosts the network's highly rated reunion specials. Cohen has an active following on social media, where he commands over two million followers on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

    In May 2013, Cohen became a New York Times best-selling author for the second time with the release of the paperback version of his book, Most Talkative: Stories from the Frontlines of Pop Culture published by St Martin's Press. The hardcover, published by Henry Holt, also achieved similar success back in June 2012, spending 13 weeks on the list.

    Cohen served as Bravo's Executive Vice President of Development and Talent from November 2011 to present. He was responsible for creating original content, developing innovative formats and identifying new talent. He also served as Executive Producer on Emmy and James Beard award-winning "Top Chef." Cohen started at Bravo in 2004 as Vice President, Original Programming and in 2005 he was elevated to Senior Vice President of Original Programming & Development. He upped to Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Development in December, 2010. Since then he has overseen an aggressive slate of unscripted series and specials including hits such as the Peabody Award winning "Project Runway," Emmy winning "Top Chef," "Queer Eye," "Work Out," "Being Bobby Brown," "Top Design," "Make Me a Supermodel," "Blow Out," "Kathy Griffin My Life On the D List," "The A List Awards" "The Millionaire Matchmaker," "Million Dollar Listing," "The Rachel Zoe Project," "Work of Art: The Next Great Artist," "Bethenny Ever After," "Tabatha's Salon Takeover," "Shahs of Sunset," "Flipping Out," and "The Real Housewives" franchises.

    Previously, Cohen was Vice President of Original Programming for TRIO (pop, culture, TV), beginning in July 2000. He was responsible for developing and supervising all of TRIO's original productions including the critically acclaimed original documentaries "Gay Republicans," "Easy Riders/Raging Bulls," "Brilliant, But Cancelled," and the original series "Pilot Season," "24w/" and "Parking Lot."

    Cohen received an Emmy award when season six of "Top Chef" won Outstanding Reality Competition Program at the 2010 primetime Emmy awards and has been nominated for 17 additional Emmy Awards as Executive Producer of "Project Greenlight," "Project Runway," "Top Chef" and "Queer Eye." In 2005, Cohen was awarded a Peabody Award for his role as Executive Producer of the TRIO documentary "The N Word" and another in 2008 as an Executive Producer of "Project Runway."

He has also been a guest on "Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

    April 20, 2015
    Cohen (Most Talkative), host and executive producer of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live and executive producer of the drama-laden Real Housewives franchise, walks readers through a year of his life via this mildly entertaining diary. Those expecting insight into the inner workings of cable network programming will be deeply disappointed, as Cohen offers next to nothing in terms of boardroom drama or casting decisions, but readers familiar with his charming and occasionally catty persona will likely find themselves drawn in as he recounts fighting a terrible urge to go to the bathroom while on-air, searching for a meaningful canine companion, and handling countless celebrity interactions with aplomb and a striking amount of humility—he's probably harder on himself than he is on his guests. Those expecting lightning bolts of bad taste will get their fill—he's kept a jar of Lady Gaga's urine—and there's plenty of celebrity dishing (Donnie Wahlberg has no problem using public restrooms, Madonna flies commercial), but his sheer delight is endearing as he recounts meeting Fred Schneider of the B-52s, watching the St. Louis Cardinals with his parents, and indulging his unabashed love for his dog, Wacha. Still, it's tough for Cohen to keep the narrative from falling into a rote cycle of lunches, late-night massages, and brief recaps of often uneventful shows ("The live show was 50 Cent and Jerry Ferrera. A caller asked how much cash each of them had and 50 pulled out ten grand in hundreds from his back pocket"), making for a book best read in small doses.
