    Story

    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.

    Roberta says: "If you're depressed, listen to this book!!!"

    Where does Most Talkative rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks way up at the top. Hysterically funny. A must-listen-to for anyone who loves cable television, all things pop culture, All My Children, Bravo, the Bravo housewives, - and the concept of endlessly pranking one's poor, unsuspecting, gullible, midwest Jewish mom.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    You have to give it up for Andy's Mom, Evelyn Cohen, and his partner-in-crime, Graciela, someone you will wish were your bestie after listening to this book.


    What about Andy Cohen’s performance did you like?

    You know how sometimes you're kinda psyched to have the actual author, especially if they are a celebrity, read their bio? And then you're like "Gah! Did you not listen to yourself? For God's sake, go out and hire a professional!" (I'm looking at you, Lauren Conrad). Well, this is NOT one of those times. Andy Cohen is as fabulous on audio as he is on his "Watch What Happens Live" TV show. An absolute joy to listen to...after recommending this book to everyone, I had to add the caveat that they MIGHT be missing something if they were reading, rather than listening to, this book. Listening to him imitate everyone from his Mom to Real Housewife Lisa VanderPump is hilarious, and you feel throughout the book that he is sitting and chatting with you - or better yet, confiding in you as though the two of you are on a sleepover in high school. Delicious, hysterical.


    Any additional comments?

    Not only is the book laugh-out-loud hysterical (you know that embarrassing moment when you are commuting on the subway or out running and burst out laughing while listening to a book, prompting weird stares from passers-by? Be prepared) - but the book is also a touching narrative on what it is like to be a gay teen in the 80s, long before popular culture and society at large began accepting out and proud gays. In addition, it offers a fantastic look at interning at a national news - and then morning - program, and the rise up the ladder in the burgeoning cable television industry. Download now. Right now.
