A year in the whirlwind life of the beloved pop icon Andy Cohen, in his own cheeky, candid, and irreverent words.
As a TV producer and host of the smash late-night show Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen has a front row seat to an exciting world not many get to see. In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with Real Housewives, makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog.
We learn everything from which celebrity peed in her WWHL dressing room to which Housewives are causing trouble and how. Nothing is off limits - including dating. We see Andy at home and with close friends and family (including his beloved and unforgettable mom). Throughout, Andy tells us not only what goes down, but exactly what he thinks about it.
Inspired by the diaries of another celebrity-obsessed Andy (Warhol), this honest, irreverent, and laugh-out-loud funny book is a one-of-a-kind account of the whos and whats of pop culture in the 21st century.

On a quest for a book that will knock Tina Fey's "Bossypants" out and win the coveted title of "My Favorite Book."
I loved his last book so I was certain this one would be great. I'm a big fan of Andy and all his shows on Bravo but this book is such a snooze. He reads through one boring day after another.
It doesn't matter how big the celebrity name is that gets dropped or how glamorous the party he went to was, the retelling of it all is terribly boring.
It's like listening to a coworker you hardly know go on and on about their weekend... Only this time you actually paid to hear about it.
I love Andy. I think he's honest and funny and smart and very real. I think this book is an honest look into his life. He is a busy man juggling many things and living his awesome life. He doesn't make excuses for the way he lives or what he does he does it and lives it and ENJOYS it. I love haring people love their lives, even if its not perfect. The dog, hilarious addition to the book and his life.
I am jealous of his friendship with SJP. I feel like I want to be Andy....
He is very energetic and passionate when he is telling his story.
I don't think this book is MOVING, if you are looking for something MOVING then read Oprah's book.
I saw some amazon reviews calling this self indulgent. UH HELLO??? It's his flippin diary!! Cmon. What did you think you were reading???? It's funny and light and interesting.
Yes, to pick up on the stuff I missed the first time through.
Hmmm, maybe "Neil Young's Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippie Dream" but more pop culture, glam, etc....
Every day is glamorous with the gorgeous hunk of dog Wacha.
Andy is just fun to listen to.
Listening to Andy tell about his own experiences with the appropriate intonations made it much more enjoyable.
Listening to the development of Andy and Wacha's story was my favorite part of the book.
I think this was about the same as his previous book.
This is a guilty pleasure. There is nothing to be learned from this book, no insights that would help you in your own life, nothing substantial, but there isn't supposed to be! It is just fun.
I'm a photographer who loves reading non-fiction. I gravitate towards bios and memoirs and love learning more about business & creativity.
Funny, Entertaining, Fantastic!
I would compare to Andy's other two books-which I also loved! Being an LA girl, it's so entertaining to learn about social life on the East Coast. He's so descriptive, I feel like I'm there. Entertaining to hear about all the people he is friends with and what they do in their day to day lives! The love he has for his Mom, his dog, and his friends is so apparent and touching.
It's like watching 'Watch what happens live", as far as getting all the goofy intonations in his voice. I love it! I'm so glad I got the audio version and didn't get the book. I love the way he impersonates his Mom, Cher, and Barbra Streisand. Classic!
I'm a huge Andy fan, have fun watching anything Bravo. It's just a good time hearing the about the day in the life (or year) of Andy from his perspective. Anytime I just wanted to hear something light hearted & a laugh, I'd put it on.
