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.

    "Overall good listen"
    What did you like best about Most Talkative? What did you like least?

    What I liked most about talkative was the performance. Andy Cohen did a really good job of keeping his book a light and easy listen. I also really enjoyed that he threw in extra material that was not in the book and even made special reference to his listening audience. What I liked the least was not knowing what he was talking about with respect to certain aspects of his life. I am not in the know about all the real house wives series and he goes on in detail about them for a good quarter of the book, so that kind of stunk.

    Would you listen to Most Talkative again? Why?

    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.

    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.

    "Andy is a true one of a kind"
    Would you listen to Most Talkative again? Why?

    I already have! He reads his own story and you feel like you are right there in the club house just hanging with Andy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Most Talkative?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are too many to list. Andy's life in showbiz is filled with celeb meetings and he is forever the consumate fan.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did not want it to be over.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
