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 two things: He was gay, and he loved television. 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 him while he was 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 show Watch What Happens: Live, Cohen tells tales of absurd network-news mishaps, hilarious encounters with the heroines of his youth, and the real stories behind the 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 the TV, both making shows and hosting his own.

From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. 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 him while he was 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 show Watch What Happens: Live, Cohen tells tales of absurd network-news mishaps, hilarious encounters with the heroines of his youth, and the real stories behind the Real Housewives.

Editorial Reviews

A wonderfully fun, funny and inspirational journey, peppered with colorful, crisis prone women. I loved it! Most Talkative is most read-ative! Amy Sedaris, author of I Like You and Simple Times
“Andy Cohen’s new book Most Talkative is laugh-out-loud funny. Anyone who likes pop culture will really like this book. It’s a perfect read for this summer.” Anderson Cooper
“In MOST TALKATIVE, Cohen talks your ear off, and you'll love every minute of it…Because of his recognizable voice, this audiobook is the best format to hear Cohen's gossip on pop culture and how he worked his way up in the entertainment industry. Best of all, he laughs and enjoys his own stories right along with you. AudioFile Magazine
Most Talkative is Andy Cohen’s story from starting out as an intern for CBS news and working his way up the ranks through programming and then eventually becoming a personality himself. He’s a really funny writer!” Kelly Ripa
"[Cohen] is funny as Augusten Burroughs used to be…[Most Talkative] requires zero interest in Top Chef, Real Housewives or anything else on Bravo to find him highly entertaining company through this joke-filled joy ride.” New York Times
