Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture | [Andy Cohen]

Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture

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.

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.

    "If you love Andy, you'll love this book!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes!! I am wildly embarrassed to admit that I love all things "Bravo"...especially that Andy Cohen! Very cute read, generally upbeat.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Andy Cohen: Buy m'book!!!"


    Any additional comments?

    Just adorable, not to mention hilarious! Andy is wonderfully frank without being too "heavy". Really enjoyable.

    "Andy"

    Absolutely loved the book. Perfect Andy at his best. Love him. Only problem, I could not get Chapter 6 as it was full of static. First time that ever happened. Still worth a 5 star

    "Ehh."

    I am always interested in how people work their way up through the ladder to become the faces we see on tv. Cohen's story is interesting and a testament to his persistance and hard work. However, if your looking for great dish on behind the scenes activities behind the housewive's series, you are out of luck. Just remember his main goal is to promote the show and protect Bravo. Nothing about all of the freebie's and positioning that goes on.

    "May have been better as a non-audible book??"

    I was disappointed. I enjoy the Andy Cohen "After Live" show, and am a big housewives whore.i thought this would be funny, and full of housewife dirt.

    First off, his voice is soooo annoying after a while- nasally, whiney, and he really isn't that funny. Most of the stories, i found pretty uninteresting. The only part I enjoyed was when he talked about the housewives, and that was only a few small chapters, and didn't really dish on much except their dogs..

    "Andy Cohen: Most Self-Centered Man on Earth"

    I suppose I should have known the general tone and feeling of this book, having watched Andy Cohen many times on Watch What Happens Live. However, after listening to hour after hour of stories that mostly showcase his shallowness and utter disregard for the feelings of other people, it just wore me down.

    I can see why he's successful, because he found the absolutely perfect niche for someone as vapid as himself. I have a feeling this book is going to be featured in "Celebrity Autobiography" at some point soon.

    "Great funny book Listening to Andy was the best"
    Would you try another book from Andy Cohen and/or Andy Cohen?

    Absolutely


    Has Most Talkative turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I chose to listen instead of reading because I knew Andy would be hilarious and I was not disappointed. It added so much to the story to have Andy reading it to you.
