Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Narration by the Author or Authors, 2013

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.

    "too precious"

    I've never seen a real housewives show and had not heard of this man before this book. So, why did I get it? I really don't remember. His mother thinks he's HYSTERICAL. I don't, but I'm probably a grouch

    "Awful...don't waste your money"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea....Even the narrator (author) didn't seem to know what his job was supposed to be.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Andy Cohen again?

    Never.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andy Cohen’s performances?

    No.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger,

    "Not Literature, But A Lot of Fun."
    Any additional comments?

    This carefree, and at times heartfelt, book is not going down in history as great writing, but it helped me get my mind off of a hard time in my life. I feel life Andy is my fabulous, gossipy friend. This book is fun escapism.

    "Cohen uncensored & sensational"

    I loved the stories--all connected in an amalgamation of LOL moments from Cohen at his funniest, disarmingly charming self.

    Story
    "I love this man"

    I just finished Andy's book. What can I say? I loved it. I feel choked up as not only is this the story of an entertainer that we have all grown to love, but I learned that he's truly a decent, humble man. I work a stressful, full-time job I have two small children and this book was truly the respite I needed from my chaotic, crazy life. If you are at all hesitating which we making this purchase, I am telling you, I consider myself to be an educated, intelligent, liberal, freethinking woman, and I am far from disappointed in this material. Do yourself a favor and buy this book, start listening, and be prepared to fall in love
    with Andrew Cohen.

    "I love this book!"

    I love this book!! After I finished listening to it I went out and told all my friends to buy it. Andy Cohen is my favorite and his stories about his early life and career are inspiring. This is one book in my collection that I will listen to over and over again!
