Product description

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.

Review quote

"[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."--"The New York 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 "Ladies, put "50 Shades" aside for Andy Cohen's "Most Talkative," a book about friendship, family, and fun. His coming out story will break your heart."--Jessica Seinfeld ""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 "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"
