I would recommend this book to anyone. Male or Female. Gay or Straight. Andy Cohen is a magnificent story teller. This book is fantastic, interesting, and oh so funny.
It's like him literally telling you the story.
I laughed so hard.
This is a great read for anyone who is a fan of Bravo. It's also narrated by Andy Cohen, who is fantastic. He narrates as if he's sitting in a room with you telling a great story - and he throws in little side comments that you can only hear on the audio edition.
funny, enjoyable and entertaining.
The stories surrounding joan collins are awesome.
If you love bravo and I do. This book is for you. Housewives junkies check this read out.
While Andy Cohen may not be the best narrator for his own story, the details he shares are priceless. A true inside scoop into years of Television history.
I already have! He reads his own story and you feel like you are right there in the club house just hanging with Andy.
When Andy comes out to his college room mate it brought me to tears. Andy tells it all with his wide eyed fear, just wanting to still be loved by his family and friends.
There are too many to list. Andy's life in showbiz is filled with celeb meetings and he is forever the consumate fan.
I did not want it to be over.
Andy thanks for reading your own book and sharing all that is personal as well as your fascination with celebrity, reality and everything in between.
It was like Andy was telling you all his best stories
I loved the asides that he made to the listener
So entertaining, I cannot imagine downloading this info into my brain any other way than by Andy himself reading to me!
Books have always been an escape for me: initially from my studies, now from too much work. A good story is my favorite remedy.
I've already recommended the book to any friends or colleagues who share the guilty pleasure of any Bravo television shows. It was a fun insiders' view of the reality television industry while also demonstrating for readers that there is so much more to Mr. Cohen then is shown on WWHN.
The book was escapist delight and brought a smile to my face -- if not outright laughter -- on several occasions. Mr. Cohen writes (and narrates) just like he speaks on his talk show: energetic, self-deprecating, honest and with a spirit of unbridled "let's have some fun!"
Being of the same generation as Mr. Cohen, I recognize that other readers/listeners might not resonate so much with his exeriences and observations. However, I really enjoyed his recollections and hope that he'll follow-up in a few years with more perspectives on our peeping-Tom society -- or is it a "There but for the grace of God, go I" society? -- and remains as open and honest as he is here.
Probably not, as sometimes a little Andy Cohen is a lot of take and might not be everyone's cup of tea
I was kind of ready to give up listening in the middle when he began to explain playing pranks on his parents and what a spoiled employee/intern he was at CBS. This aspect of him is just not likeable and while I understand that he lived it (and has learned from it), it was not fun to listen to. However, it did improve and I enjoyed the rest of the book.
LOVED the part where he imitated Ross Perot and Michael Jackson - really funny
No sorry, it was just a light escape to listen to while travelling
Funny, behind the scenes and an easy read.
Can't think of one.
A must read for Bravo lovers.
